Masaru Bakugo (爆豪勝 Bakugō Masaru?) is Katsuki Bakugo's father.


He is a middle aged man who has short light hair, a short mustache and glasses.


Compared to his hotheaded wife and son, he seems to be more calm and less prone to violence.

However, he clearly loves his family very much and gets along well with his wife as he too does not approve of his son's arrogant attitude.


At some point, he met Mitsuki at the job and she aggressively hit on him which led to a relationship that progressed to them getting married.

Sometime later, Masaru became the father to their son, Katsuki Bakugo.


Hideout Raid Arc

Masaru tries to calm his family down when Toshinori Yagi and Shota Aizawa arrive. After calming down, Mitsuki Bakugo notes that Katsuki Bakugo's rashness along with his gifted abilities, has resulted in him being pampered and getting shallow praise for what he has which has resulted in his arrogant nature. However, Mitsuki is happy that Shota sees her son for who he is instead of his gifted abilities. She once again agrees to leave Katsuki in U.A. High's care since her son returned home safe and sound thanks to the Pro Heroes and asks Shota to make her son into a fine Hero.

Quirk and Abilities

Oxidizing Sweat: His palms can secrete acidic sweat with combustive and explosive properties. If he rubs his hands together he can create explosions, but unlike his son, he cannot forcibly secrete it, and it comes out like normal sweat. This along with his wife's quirk is why Katsuki has to secrete sweat in his explosion quirk as they become more powerful.


  • He likes classical music.
  • Masaru's own name means "victory"
  • Katsuki shares the same syllable as his father being "勝" (Katsu).
