AP Shot (徹甲弾 (A・P・ショット) Ē-Pī Shotto?, literal meaning "Armor-Piercing Shot") is a Super Move performed by Katsuki Bakugo using the Explosion Quirk. It was developed during his training at the Gamma Gym.


By focusing his Explosion path into a single point, rather than his whole palm, Katsuki is able to produce a concentrated blast that can successfully pierce through solid concrete.

Katsuki performs AP Shot by forming his hand into a circle and places it on his other palm. He then shoots his explosion through the circle in order to keep the attack focused on a fixed point. [1]
