    Lol--I don't change sets, so I'm opting out! Whoever wins, I hope Deku and Bakugo come to some sort of understanding--Baku needs to direct his vitriol and explosive fists toward those who truly deserve it!

    I'm just going with Bakugou since I'm interested in the outcome of "what happens if he wins" :hm

    We had a thread about this rematch, and I'm sticking with what I said there. Deku wins!

    I'm with #teamdeku but I think the fight will be interrupted somehow.

    Deku cannot fight seriously unless someone is in danger, ever. I hope this fight makes him more aggressive when standing up for his ideals but he will always be someone who fights when someone is in danger so I can't see him going all out here as much as I want to see him go 10% and teach Bakugou a lesson.

    Eraserhead will probably show up, scold them or maybe even expel them for unauthorized fighting on campus or All Might shows up and explains to Bakugou why he chose Deku.

    also fuck your set! I ain't wearin' shit.

    "Wear a set of my choosing"
    I don't know if I should be worried about this or not...

    But I suppose this would be fun to witness. I have a feeling that 99.9% of this choice would be wrong, but I believe the fight will be interrupted (or double knock out, based on the list). I'm sure someone will notice this feud and they'll try to stop it; maybe Eraserhead will break the fight?
    Either that, or either of them will actually fight.

    Now I'll have to get ready for your set of choosing. :catcry

    Good points but I raise:

    1. Was not aiming to hurt Bakugou like they are now, but create a opening for Ochako to steal the bomb. Just like was mentioned in the manga, he won the war(objective) but lost the battle(fight).

    2. Todoroki was having a butthurt phase and Dr. Deku with his PhD in Psychology had to step in for therapy session, again was not aiming to seriously hurt him like Deku vs Baku 2.

    edit: who changed butt-----hurt to mr. meseeks.

    No.

    For the first point. The only thing holding back Deku in his fight against Baku was his own control. Deku fought as best he could without killing his opponent, which both fighters refrained from doing. If Deku could control his power at that time like he can now, he obviously would have hurt Bakugou more. Your point is invalid here.

    For the second. Deku was trying to hurt Todoroki even before he started his Psychology Session. Again, Deku's own control over his quirk prevented him from going all out. And again, if Deku had more control, he obviously would have hurt Todoroki more.

    Basically, Deku previously had little choice in how he fought. It was either no power or kill your opponent, and then later, a little power or kill your opponent. You can't compare Deku facing off against a fellow student to when he's facing a villain to save someone. If you do that, not even this second fight here against Bakugou should count as Deku "fighting seriously".

    If Deku goes into The Absolute Madman mode he should rekt.

    Doubt he would, so it could go anyway.

    I hope Deku wins thoug :lmao

    full cowl moves are mere imitation, baku style is the real deal :mlpshrug

    baku's explosions and overall attack power>>deku's 5% punches and kicks :mlpshrug

    Bakugou the first time around wasn't even mentally sound, he was just able to keep himself in check to prevent himself from killing Deku with his Arm Cannons but he was still breaking down from the idea that Deku had more power than he did/was possibly lying to him their entire childhood.

    Bakugou has also showed impressive mobility, and avoiding being captured when outnumbered by the VA at Kamino along with his natural fighting instincts that many have already commented on.

    Hell, even without his Arm Cannons he can dish out some strong explosions. Deku has mobility, a little extra speed and strength now but his body is even more damaged then before and his kicks don't have much destructive power behind them without the reinforcements. The databook even shows his power at a 1/5 compared to Baku's 5/5.

    Deku's only surefire way to winning this would be Bakugou running out of juice and tiring himself out but the AoE of the explosions make that difficult since he already got one of his legs burned.

    Bakugou just showed himself using the explosions to give him momentum, has shown that he can use it to effectively double jump and even change his position and trajectory using them. I don't like him either but he isn't a dumbass.

    After seeing Bakugou's development during the training before the provisional license exam, I am leaning more towards Bakugou winning, but just by a bare inch. Mutual fights like this always end this way.

    ... That's if they don't get interrupted, of course (which I think is very likely)

    Would normally engage but me and Xammies already have a bet going which I'm going to win, not to mention I'm not even going to remotely gamble on my current set

    True that.
    But he's a tough nut; not going to happen that quickly, if at all.
    I have a feeling he's gonna stay this way until the end. :cattired

    Hmm, I'm thinking this could go both ways and really leaning towards Baku winning...but I'm going with Deku winning in the polls. May the Gods be good.

    Ya know what to give him now :D
