#27 What Is My Favourite Scene in Which a Character Acts like a Complete and Utter Badass?
Deku Saves Kacchan from the Slime Villain – My Hero Academia 1st Season
This may seem like a bizarre choice for my favourite scene in which a character acts like a complete and utter badass. Deku’s probably not the first character who comes to mind when considering all-out badassery. Maybe you think of a character like Guts, capable of taking on armies of one hundred or more soldiers single-handedly, one of JoJo’s many meatheads, or somebody like Sasuke, who’s as cool as a cucumber and always has a snappy clapback tucked away in his long, billowing sleeves. But I’d like to argue that Deku is just as badass (if not even more so) than these characters. And nothing exemplifies that better than the scene when, during My Hero Academia’s first episode, he rescued Kacchan from the Slime Villain. This was the scene that first won me over to the franchise and catapulted Deku straight into my Top 10 Favourite Characters, so it holds a special place in my heart!
