Chiaki and Kokichi have never interacted, due to being from different games, though they have some interactions in Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp. In one, they talk to Monokuma about a ghostly figure spotted near the old hotel. Chiaki reasons that Monokuma is unlikely to be involved in the figure's appearance, but Kokichi continues to antagonize him. Chiaki chides the two troublemakers, telling them that they should go to bed, to which they both agree. In another, Kokichi offers to sponsor Chiaki's streaming channel in order to sow chaos, but Chiaki declines, saying that she believes the gaming community needs more positivity and unity. At the campfire, Kokichi offers Chiaki advice on telling good scary stories. In another campfire event, Chiaki makes an attempt to express her emotions more clearly while listening to one of his scary stories
Chiaki and Kokichi almost have nothing in common. While Chiaki is a sweet and nice person, Kokichi is mostly a liar and manipulator, though his real character isn't really known. However, they both have a love for video games, with Chiaki being the Ultimate Gamer and having something like an obsession over video games, and one of the few things that are revealed about Kokichi being that he played video games for his whole life and loves them. Chiaki and Kokichi also are sometimes childish and are very excited when seeing new things. Chiaki and Kokichi are also both considered to be smart.

Due to both loving video games, some fanarts show them playing video games together. Some fanfictions also like to portray them bonding over video games and include a romantic relationship between them. In fanfictions, Chiaki is mostly nice and caring around Kokichi so that he would eventually open up to her. Some fanarts show them swapping their clothing, or show them playing video games with other characters like the protagonists of each's story.
This ship is considered a rare-pair among the Danganronpa fandom due to their lack of interaction in the canon story or the bonus material. Nonetheless, some people still like to imagine what would have happened if both characters would have met. There is quite a bit of fanart for the ship despite it being such a minor ship. However, both characters have more popular ships, Hinanami, Saiouma and Oumatsu, with their respective protagonists, Hajime Hinata, Shuichi Saihara and Kaede Akamatsu. On AO3, the ship currently only has 6+ works.
