    I'm talking about the very first wave. We know that the rankings are listed twice a year



    so if for example Kaminari breaks the top 10 in the first half, and Tsuyu does in the second half, Tsuyu does not count for the first wave of heroes to break the top 10.



    We learned that Hawk is the youngest Hero to reach Top 10 status by the age of 18, in the second half of that years Billboard Charts.

    Will anyone from 1-A break Hawks record ? Who will be the first hero/group of heroes to break into the top 10 of a Hero Billboard Chart from 1-A ? Also at what age do you think he/she/they will earn this achievement ?

    I feel that maybe Todo or Baku will be the first to reach the top ten.

    Pretty much my first thought was this as well. I think that either one of them, or both of them at the same time making the top 10 is the most likely outcome.

    I think Todoroki has a much easier time especially if Endeavor gets his popularity numbers up.

    Baku though is a jackass so since Approval Rating matters that is probably not going to help him.

    I thought about that too, but if Endeavor can get himself to be the 4th when it comes to Approval Ratings alone, i don't think this will end up being that huge of a factor in holding Bakugou back. But who knows, maybe Horikoshi makes it play out like that at first to further motivate Bakugo to work on that. We've seen this in the latest chapter



    So maybe he makes Bakugo be the 11th, just out of the top 10, and has it be mentioned that he would have been easy top 10 material with a decent approval rating.

    Well the question is first to break in right? So I am not saying Bakugou can never do it, I think he will. Deku, Todo, and Baku will definitely be Top 5. Just that Bakugou, personality and low likeability is not going to do him favors in being a Hawk and getting in First since approval ratings seem pretty important.

    Ergo Todoroki has the easiest time cause he has got Nepotism and he doesn't have a disagreeable personality.

    You find Hawks personality to be agreeable ? I'm not convinced that he's not an example of someone getting high approval ratings while being a douche. But yeah, we are pretty much in agreement in regards to Horikoshi potentially using the approval rating to hold back Bakugo initially.

    Eh Hawks it is hard to get a read. We have only seen him in one issue. But do I think Hawks ever bullied someone like Bakugo did to Deku....yeah no. Hawks reads more cool and aloof and someone who wants to keep it Real not out and out Bully. I mean he is clearly not to proud to ask Endeavor for help...do you see Bakugo doing that at this point?

    Well Endeavor did thing worse than school bullying. He still become number two and then number one. And again Bakugou isn't worst case of school bully. He already changed quite a bit.
    He will probably do it in his own unique manner, but why not, he did accept help earlier.

    Again the question is who breaks in first...I am saying Bakugou has a lot of flaws that make it unlikely he beats Todo or Deku into the Top 10.

    And from the way narration logic is going, he will beat them, at least temporarily.

    On the other hand, Horikoshi might use the fact that he has these flaws that make it more difficult for him to make the top 10 very fast, to further hype his achievement. For example it could be that both him and Todoroki make it, but he get's that extra bit of hype by making it in spite of his personality holding back his approval rating.

    The end of the second fight between him and Deku pretty much says he will accept it, when the time comes.

    When this happens not only would he accept it, but he’ll probably welcome the challenge to surpass All Mights successor.

    I think by the end of it all Bakugo will distance himself from the idea that he's another Vegeta, the way he did from the one that he's another Sasuke.

    We've already seen Bakugo giving Deku tips on how to get stronger, and he's trying to make sure that Deku doesn't fall behind, since we've seen him questioning his progress after the Overhaul arc. Instead of just being focused on surpassing Deku, Bakugo also seems to give great importance now to Deku not disappointing, and becoming as strong as it's expected for All Mights successor to be. It's probably because he was chosen by the man he admires so much, and because it's only through Deku that the same power he admired so much can still live on, that he wants Deku to live up to whatever All Might saw in him.

    It's actually somewhat funny how their current dynamic works out. Bakugo asks of Deku to become strong enough to beat him, because that's expected of All Might's successor, while striving himself to become someone that neither Deku nor anyone else can defeat. Someone who can always win no matter what, win like All Might used to. Maybe it's partially why All Might was happy with their newborn "true rivalry". It's one that's meant to always push them to new heights, because there's no satisfying outcome that could lead to complacement from the two them.

    There are signs that Bakugou will become Deku's partner. Like Gran Torino was for All Might.

    Bakugou is gonna go evil futher on in life the second All Might passes away and he'll have no way to see Deku as a friend without Toshi's blessing.

    I believe the Sports Festival is foreshadowing for who will break Top 10/reach #1 first.

    Deku will reach #1, already has his provisional license and had his first public villain battle with Overhaul. Todoroki and Bakugou are behind him and have yet to get their provisionals.(Deku suddenly takes the lead after being behind during the Sports Race)

    After they get their licenses, Todoroki will surpass Deku and take #1, holding it until Bakugou breaks the Top 10 and snatches it from him.

    With Ida, Todoroki managed to take the #1 spot from Deku who almost hanged on to it and then in the last round Bakugou manages to beat Todoroki, but the former wasn’t taking it seriously and Bakugou effectively became #1 by default like Endeavor.

    And then the whole ranking system crumbles EoS as Deku and co change the way hero society works.
