AP Shot (short for "Armor Piercing Shot") is a move performed by Katsuki Bakugo using the Explosion Quirk. It was developed during his training at the Gym Gamma.


By focusing his Explosion path into a single point instead of around the whole palm, Katsuki is able to create a concentrated blast that can successfully pierce even solid concrete.[1]


  • AP Shot: Auto-Cannon (徹甲弾 (A・Pショット・) 機関銃 (オートカノン) AP Shotto Ōtokanon?): A rapid-fire version of his AP Shot technique, the explosion power is reduced in order to avoid dealing severe damage to human targets.[2]
