She decided to become an Explosion mage after a busty older woman saved her with Explosion magic when she was young, and after learning it, claims she "must cast Explosion once a day or die." After traveling to Axel Town, she quickly gained a reputation as a crazy Explosion fanatic, thus parties refused to accept her before she met Kazuma and Aqua.

- Explosion Magic
The spell itself is shown to be incredibly devastating, often obliterating anything within its targeted range and even sending out powerful shock-waves that can be felt hundreds of yards away. However, the severe mana drain, combined with Megumin never using points to increase her mana, results in her always collapsing after casting and becoming completely immobile As of Volume 9, she can cast it without chanting.
