Howitzer Impact is a move performed by Katsuki Bakugo using the Explosion Quirk.


Katsuki takes to the air and uses explosions to propel himself in a circular motion to create a tornado. The ensuing twister collects oxygen and momentum to fuel the subsequent explosion.

Katsuki releases the enhanced, aforementioned blast after colliding with the ground. The technique and its effectiveness are comparable to that of a missile. It was first used in Katsuki's match with Shoto Todoroki during the U.A. Sports Festival. It had enough destructive force to completely destroy Shoto's Giant Ice Wall.[1][2]
