    Deku could win if he starts using % of OFA that would break his own body. Otherwise, i think we will see the moment of Deku surpassing Bakugo with the % of OFA that he has made his own ( in the sense that he's not damaging himself while using it ) happen in a battle between the two.

    Bakugou was, by his own admission, able to react to 8% Deku speed because of how predictable and linear his movements were.

    Current Deku seems to have figured out to not stay at a constant output as All Might revealed to him, so a mix of 8% and 20% would overwhelm Bakugou. Especially now that he has long range attacks.

    I’m surprised you decided to start reading MHA, Extravlad. Welcome to the section. HxH tier lists are no longer fun I take it? :blobshrug

    At this point I say its even without equipment, Deku at 20% is probably way more then Bakugo can handle right now but Deku's attacks are still predictable as Overhaul was still able to fight back, Deku can't use 20% for long either, so he might be stuck at 8% with his 20% finger flicks to mix things up. Deku can probably win if he surprises Bakugo with the 20%, but if Bakugo ever gets a chance to see it he probably will be able to adjust to tit.

    With equipment, Bakugo's gear helps him far more then Deku's does.

    Seeing as their last fight was fairly recent and that Bakugou managed to react to Deku's 8%, I don't think the 20% will make much of a difference, especially if they fight without gear. Deku might have a chance if he goes Full Cowl 20% and goes ham in Bakugou, but even then I don't think he can hit hard enough to knock him down permanently before the drawbacks of 20% catch up to him.

    That said, being the Todoroki fanboy that I am, I still think he beats them both in a fair one on one.

    You know funny thing, right now Bakugou became the underdog of the series, instead of the main protagonist, he's still growing. Before Deku vs Kacchan 2 people also doubted he can beat Midoriya, but he actuly did beat him. So we evrething is posible.

    Really in what universe can Bakugou take a direct hit?

    As for gear, I think gear helps Bakugou more then it does Deku.

    Well, he did take a straight 8% punch to the face and basically no sold it by ending the fight with his immediate next move.

    He also take punch in the guts from All Might, and then punch in the face from 5% Deku. Bakugou tougher than people think.

    You assume All Might was punching as hard as possible when he hit Bakugou? Really?

    That's not the question you should be asking, because it's an obvious no. The question you should be asking is if All Might was punching with as much strength as Deku can safely use currently.

    No, but it was definitely harder then 5% or 8%.

    Would not be surprised if Bakugou won. AP shot would probably kill Deku. If its win by ko then idk, I doubt Deku has gotten over his predictability issue yet, IIRC Overhaul pointed it out in their fight as well so I think Bakugou has a shot even against 20% as well.

    My guess on how Bakugou could keep up with Deku over time is that maybe once he grows up/bulks up more, his body will be able to produce more nitro sweat, and it's been stated that his reaction time is excellent as is so with training it could get better. Then on top of that we had that chapter with the kids where it was stated that quirks are getting more powerful with each new generation, so it wouldn't be that crazy if some exceptional quirk users could keep up with OFA even at 100%

    Realistically one punch should be enough to put Bakugou down. Izuku doesn't want to kill Bakugou obviously.

    Doubt Bakugou will stand still and allow this to happen. You won't believe, but Bakugou, also doesn't want to kill Deku.
    So as I always say neither of them will fight with deadly force, or lethal moves like AP shot, or OFA 100% punches.

    Deku could always just use 100%fingerflicks and there's nothing that Bakugo can do about it, or blitz with 20% full cowl since Katsuki couldn't handle 8% speed.

    Even if he could react his movement speed would be less than half than Deku so it would be irrelevant.

    This is 20% power

    Yeah because, doesn't improves and progresses his own powers. Many made same mistake before "Deku vs Kacchan 2".

    He doesn't because he literally doesn't have those powers, explosion doesn't increase his speed or his strength, he just can keep up with Deku because reasons, like Sasuke with the absurdly more physically powerfull Nardo.

    Last time he only won because Deku was playing nice.

    Explosions do increase his speed though, he uses them to propel himself, and you could argue with that higher speed he would have higher striking power as a result.

    That is useless for the small and controlled moves needed for a fight.

    Improving power and control of his explosions, actually does increase both his strength and speed.
    Deku doesn't think this way...

    Bakugou has been complimented on his fighting ability/instinct numerous times throughout the series, I think he'll be ok

    It is, it's unrelated to the movements of his muscles. He would just be able to make big lineal movements.
    -Bakugo attemps to use an explosion
    -Deku punches him twice before he gets his arm in position.

    -Deku uses a kick
    -Bakugo's arm can't cover his face in time even if he sees the kick coming.

    -Bakugo uses big Explosions.
    -Deku blast them back with a 100% move.

    That's useless without super speed as a power and the explosions can't cover that.

    Izuku could overwhelm him with speed or use finger flick to blow him back then blitz attack him.

    If Bakugou holds back that gives Midoriya the advantage in the fight even more so.

    But the explosive propulsion does give him higher speed, and flight on top of that so he can change direction in midair as well. In fact he did that against Deku to get behind him

    Guys we did see current Deku in a fight against Gentle. Honestly, nothing Bakugou can't keep up with or counter.

    We saw Bakugo admitting he is slower than 8% Deku, and he has never tanked hits like 20% can dish out casually. Gentle has better feats than Bakugo too, beating squads of pro heros single handedly without a scratch.

    Katsuki has no relevant feats or a logical way to close the gap since training shouldn't overcome training+ an actual speed superpower.

    Bullshit he doesn't. I already explained how it could work in my first post, more nitro power would = more speed. Also how is what Bakugou has not super speed? He's using explosions to move faster, Deku uses muscles, they get the same result. It's just like superman and the flash, both of them have super speed, superman uses his muscles and flash uses the speed force
