    In light of Chapter 114's shocking reveal (not so much to @Xiammes), I thought it'd be interesting to gauge the fans' thoughts on what might have happened to Kemi.

    She is probably dead, we know Toga kills a lot of her victims so I don't think they need to be alive for her to transform.

    Kemi's death will probably spark a big outrage.

    I think she's alive. The villains still have to be very careful now that they lost their de-facto and their spiritual leader, so to speak. A murder victim is eventually found. A murder always leads to a close and in-depth investigation. It would be much easier for Toga to kidnap Kemi in a random disguise thanks to her quirk but hide her somewhere where she can be found alive. That way she can at best confirm that she was abducted by a stranger - who could be anyone thanks to Toga's quirk - but since she is alive and mostly unharmed, investigation will soon reach a dead end and motivation to further pursue the inconsequential kidnapping will dwindle fast. Why wake sleeping dogs with an unnecessary murder case?

    That'd be the actions of someone more rational, not batshit crazy Toga, who's killed multiple people before and wasn't even keeping contact with her allies.

    We know little about Toga. Even psychopaths have layers of depths to their personalities, many of them operate on a rather twisted but very logical rationale.

    All the villains in this series are twisted to some degree, but Toga seems the least logical, and I'm tempted to say that includes Twice.

    Narratively it's more likely she's alive.

    As for Touga being irrational, that was my thought as well, but she was level-headed enough to sneak into the exam and fool everyone so...

    I think that's more on the people she fooled than her being level-headed. Deku nearly immediately noticed wrong with Kemi!(Toga!)Ochako. Kemi's classmates couldn't figure it out after three days. :bookerskully

    Given himiko's nature i don't think camie is alive right now. Himiko ain't no kidnapper, she's a serial killer who just happens to drain her victims blood. Himiko said herself that she always carve her victims up in the end. Camie is just another one of those victims. Not to mention there's no reason to keep camie alive. She's just a random girl who himiko preyed on to get access to the exam, so she can play with deku. Nobody in the V.A. gave her some mission where keeping camie alive was important. This is all himiko's crazy whim.

    But again, chances are that she's alive given the manga's tone. I can't say it'd be harsh killing some "fodder" we don't know anything about, but that's still a high school student i guess. But being alive after 3 days while being at the mercy of a arrogant, vicious killer that has a M.O. of butchering her victims is a bit much. It can only be by plot.

    It's possible that she's still alive. I mean, I don't see her being killed in the name of plot, unless there's going to be some impact in the story about her death.

    Unless the author is all for meaningless deaths in the series (which, judging by how the series is going so far, nobody died; not including flashbacks because I don't recall anyone died except for All Might's predecessor).

    Toga has no reason to keep kemi alive, unless she can only transform into people that are alive. She is a serial killer known for draining blood, I wouldn't expect Kemi to be any different fron her regular targets.

    I assume Kemi's death will be a huge thing considering the two schools are going to be doing some joint lessons and the fact that no students have died yet despite the increasing wave in crime. Kemi's death can also prove Deku's innocence down the line if Toga goes and impersonates Deku and gets him in major trouble.

    Well, @Xiammes was right about Kemi being Toga in disguise. I kinda want him to score the hat trick by Kemi also being dead. :catskully

    You have a point though. But there still must be some kind of limit on the amount of people she can turn in. So maybe she needs to hold her captive in order to get back to that form if she rewrote it with others. Just a thought.

    I don't think she's dead - it just aint that type of story, not yet anyways
    But while I originally thought it'd be a Barty Crouch Jr and Mad Eye Moody type situation,
    How crazy would it be if she was actually in league with Toga?
    And she agreed with the switcharoo cause they're like cousins or something.
    Or even better, they're BFFs who met through a Stain Fan Forum :gar

    I'd rather she will turn out to be dead.

    She isn't an actual character at this point, so Horikoshi could simply kill her off to up the stakes. The villains murdering a student? Now that is something.

    It's not really upping the stakes if it's not "an actual character" that gets killed. Also, it's not as if villains haven't tried to kill kids before. If anything, it's more...legitimizing the stakes than raising it.

    It depends on the details of Himiko's Quirk, whether she can change into someone indefinitely after one blood igestion or if she needs to take some every time.

    Also depends on if she intends to keep impersonating her.

    Took a look back at Toga in the camp raid,
    And I tried to get a feel for her powers and her limits



    She says this after getting a few scratches on Ochako, but
    She seemed pretty happy with the little scratch drop of Deku blood



    So I'm thinkin, while a drop is enough to change into that person,
    That person's image cannot be accessed whenever she wants after a single ingestion
    (And whatever she has planned for Deku is gonna be a BIG one time thing)

    So, without an internal blood memory bank in her brain,
    How was she able to transform from Lips to Ochako back to Lips again?
    All while in the middle of battle?





    The answer, I'm guessing, is in her teeth



    The thought here is, that she's hollowed out her teeth,
    And she stores the blood in there,
    And when she needs to change,
    She just clicks her tongue against the tooth holding whoever's blood,
    The tooth opens up, the blood drips into her mouth, she swallows, and boom
    She becomes that person

    Looking at her blood getting gear,
    Spoiler:






    She seemed prepared to get much more than a drop
    She probably still has more Ochako blood in reserve too

    What was I getting at again?
    And what does this have to do with Camie still being alive possibly?
    Dunno. Just wanted to reach and theorize a bunch I guess

    It means that unless Kemi is actually another villain in league with Toga, Toga should have drained Kemi bone dry. Makes absolutely no sense (at this point in time, at least) for her to not have done that.

    I wonder why Horikoshi went with the obvious Bane mask design for her. There could've been myriads of possibilities, so why this? Is there a possibility that Toga actually has to drink blood regularely or otherwise she is suffering from withdrawal symptoms and pain?
