Katsuki Bakugo vs. Fumikage Tokoyami is a battle fought between Class 1-A students Fumikage Tokoyami and Katsuki Bakugo during the U.A. Sports Festival's Fighting Tournament.


Fumikage Tokoyami tries to attack with Dark Shadow and Katsuki Bakugo counters by hitting the shadow with an explosion. Fumikage defends himself with Dark Shadow while Katsuki forces him back with a barrage of explosions. He is unable to go on the offensive because of all the light Katsuki's Quirk is producing. Fumikage mulls over his desperate state. He admits he underestimated Katsuki and worries that he is running out of darkness because he did not get a chance to recharge Dark Shadow.

Katsuki jumps and uses an explosion to propel himself quickly at Fumikage. Fumikage ponders if Katsuki is trying to wear him down since his moves appear to be getting faster. Katsuki blasts Dark Shadow with an explosion in mid-air. Fumikage orders Dark Shadow to grab him, but Katsuki evades by using an explosion to fly away and lands behind Fumikage.

Stun Grenade!

Dark Shadow adjusts and rushes Katsuki. Katsuki counterattacks by unleashing his Stun Grenade technique, which produces a large flash of light with one big explosion. With Dark Shadow weakened by the light, Katsuki tackles Fumikage and grabs his beak. He holds a steady explosion in his hand to produce enough light to keep Dark Shadow weakened. Fumikage asks if Katsuki knew his weakness before and he replies that he figured it out by attacking repeatedly. Fumikage surrenders and Midnight declares that Katsuki is the winner.[1]
