Momo and Yosetsu are in opposing hero courses; Momo in 1-A, and Yosetsu in 1-B. The two classes have had a rivalry struck from the beginning, as both want to prove themselves as the strongest class. This somewhat sets up them up in a “Romeo & Juliet” type situation, if Momo begins to reciprocate Yosetsu’s feelings.
Yosetsu and Momo do not canonically meet until s3 during the training camp. During the LoV attack, the villain Mustard spreads his poison gas through the forest knocking most students unconscious. Momo uses her creation quirk to make gas masks for her, Yosetsu, and every other student she could. Not too long after, Yosetsu and Momo end up on their own in the forest and have an unlucky encounter with the Chainsaw Nomu.
Somewhere in their fight against the Nomu, Momo is knocked unconscious from a head injury. Yosetsu is left to try and drag them both to safety. Things soon look bleak for them, as the Nomu is far too fast and unrelenting for them to escape. As the creature lifts a blade to kill them, Yosetsu throws his body over Momo’s own in a chivalrous attempt to protect her. Luckily, the Nomu is called away by Dabi in the nick of time, allowing them their lives. Before it can disappear, a Momo stirs and tells Yosetsu to put the tracker she created on it. This later aids to the rescue of Katsuki.
AwaMomo isn’t nearly as popular as other Momo ships, such as TodoMomo or MomoJirou, due to the limited amount of interactions between the pair. Despite this, some fans appreciate a canon crush in the series, and are happy to ship it. A popular idea within fans is Momo taking Yosetsu out somewhere nice for something such as tea or lunch as a thank you for saving her. AwaMomo is Yosetsu's most popular ship.
- The MHA Ultra Analysis Book revealed that Yosetsu developed a crush on Momo after the events of the training camp, although it is unknown whether he will ever act upon it.
- AwaMomo is one of two 1-A student/1-B student pairings alongside TsubAsui.
