Although initially defensive about his robot nature, Keebo decides that he is happy to be friends with Kaede after discovering that she is not a "robo-racist". In the overtime events, Kaede seems interested in Keebo as this is her first time interacting with a real robot. Kaede is also curious about Keebo's characteristics and interrogates him. Keebo did not know that Kaede was joking because he considered human jokes to be very annoying. He says how Kaede is the first person who has asked many questions without hesitation towards him.
In the mastermind trial, Keebo helps Shuichi investigate the innocence of Kaede, and he becomes extremely angry upon discovering Kaede got executed despite her innocence. He decides alongside everyone else in the trial to end the killing game by executing everyone still alive. In a way, Kaede's death is what motivated Keebo to end the killing game the most. Keebo states he would be okay with sacrificing himself if it ends the killing game. Unfortunately, Keebo dies in his execution.
In Keebo's free time events with Kaede, Kaede repeatedly teases Keebo for being a robot, angering Keebo a lot. However, Keebo is never genuinely mad at Kaede, as she usually apologizes very quickly. Unfortunately, they do not have many interactions with each other outside free time events. They do not interact at all during Ultimate Talent Development Plan. And it is unknown if they will interact in Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp.
Kiiede is not a very popular ship in the Danganronpa Fandom, due Kaede and Keebo not having many interactions togehter, and barely talking in the Story. Nevertheless in the Free Times Events they seemed to be on good terms with each other, which fueled the ship the most, since Keebo doesn't think of Kaede as "robophobic". It's Main Rival Ship's are Saimatsu and Irumatsu for Kaede, and Kiiruma and Saiibo for Keebo. Kiiede defines as a "rarepair", on an unpopular ship. Most of the ships fanwork is fanart.
