Team A and Team B are in the fourth leg of the tournament with one win, one loss and one draw. The official promo trailer for "My Hero Academia" Season 5, Episode 9 shows Class A's team members preparing for the upcoming round.

Class A sends Sato, Jiro, Bakugo and Sero. It is a fairly balanced team but they need to be careful as Class B is bringing in Tokage.

Fans can expect a battle between Katsuki Bakugo and Tokage in the upcoming installment.

In the previous episode, Tensei Iida and Juzo Honenuki continue the battle after Shoto Todoroki's massive ice attack that engulfed a significant portion of the battle zone. Honenuki, who is buried under a thick layer of snow, powers up and goes full throttle.

He uses his new power, called Recipro Turbo, to go after Iida. At this point, Iida wonders if Honenuki can beat him using the new power. When Honenuki hits him, Iida is blown away. He knows he cannot counter Honenuki in his current form.

Iida decides to retreat and head over to Tetsutetsu and the others.
