It was obvious that not all characters would make it to the end of My Hero Academia's final chapter. There are too many enemies and the stakes are too high. It wouldn't be Shonen without some heroic deaths. You knew that some deaths would be more devastating than others, so if you have seen the chapter or heard the news, you might be wondering: Is Bakugo still alive in My Hero Academia. We have the answer, regardless of whether it's what you want.

Does Bakugo Die in My Hero Academia? Answered
Bakugo appears to be dead, according to what has been posted online after the publication of My Hero Academia's manga Chapter 362.
He is now being attacked by the All for One-controlled Shigaraki. This was his attempt to delay Deku's arrival and allow him to take on the big guy in their final confrontation. Despite having the support of UA’s Big Three, a slew Pro Heroes, and many of his classmates, All for One was determined to kill Bakugo in order to severely wound Izuku. Bakugo refused to flee under any circumstance and confronted All for One despite the possibility.
There isn't much scope for interpretation in the manga. Many panels in the chapter show Bakugo in the afterlife, or in a lifeless state. There are few glimmers of misinterpretation or cop-outs.
Bakugo Can Be Brought Back To Life!
There is a McGuffin My Hero Academia has that can revive Bakugo, and bring him back from his death. It's Eri with her unique Reversal Quirk.
Eri's Quirk can reverse any living thing to a previous point in its history. This was demonstrated when she removed her father from existence and reversed Deku's damage in the fight against Overhaul. Also, when Mirio received his Quirk back, she restored his powers.
It is not yet clear if author Kohei Horikoshi would do this, or how he would incorporate this into his story. We will keep up to date with manga developments and update this guide as necessary.
This should clarify whether Bakugo is still alive in My Hero Academia. Check out the articles below for more information about the series.
