Explode-A-Pult (爆破式 (エクス) カタパルト Ekusu Kataparuto?) is a Super Move performed by Katsuki Bakugo using his Explosion Quirk.


Katsuki moves through mid-air and grabs his opponent before using an explosion with his free arm to propel himself in a spinning motion. Katsuki spins himself and his target with explosions until he gains enough momentum to forcefully throw his opponent away.[1]

Katsuki first used this technique against Togaru Kamakiri in the fourth round of the Joint Training Battle.[1] He is also shown to have used this technique against Nine, where he propelled Izuku to Nine to grant the former more momentum for a deadlier St. Louis Smash.[2]
