Masaru Bakugo ( (ばく) (ごう) (まさる) Bakugō Masaru?) is Katsuki Bakugo's father and the husband of Mitsuki Bakugo.


Masaru is a middle-aged man of average height and build who has short brown hair similar in style to his wife and son, a short mustache and rectangular glasses.



Compared to his hotheaded wife and son, he seems to be more calm and less prone to violence.

However, he clearly loves his family very much and gets along well with his wife as he, too, does not approve of his son's arrogant attitude.


At some point, he met Mitsuki at a job and she aggressively hit on him which led to a relationship that progressed to them getting married.

Sometime later, Masaru became the father to their son, Katsuki.

Masaru tries to calm his arguing family down when Toshinori Yagi and Shota Aizawa arrive. After calming down, Mitsuki notes that Katsuki's rashness along with his gifted abilities, has resulted in him being pampered and getting shallow praise for what he has which has resulted in his arrogant nature. However, Mitsuki is happy that Shota sees her son for who he is instead of his gifted abilities. She once again agrees to leave Katsuki in U.A. High School's care since her son returned home safe and sound thanks to the Pro Heroes and asks Shota to make her son into a fine hero.
