My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 9 Spoilers

In episode 9, Bakugou might show that he can also be a team player and leader. He is an extremely powerful hero. His opponents might discover that he has changed his fighting style altogether, making all their preparations for him pretty much useless. The other team’s captain, Setsuna, will likely struggle to adapt to the situation and fail to develop new plans. This will likely cost her team.

Bakugou might chase after Kojirou and walk into a trap set by Yousetsu. One of his teammates, likely Rikidou, will then save him with his Sugar Rush Quirk. As Yousetsu tries to protect himself from Bakugou’s relentless attacks, he might not realize that the other boy is pushing him towards Kyouka and Hanta. In a last-ditch attempt to win the match, Setsuna will probably try to bring order to her team and her actions, but it might be too late by then.
