Piano Buddies is the femslash ship between Kaede Akamatsu and Mari from the Danganronpa and Omori fandom.

Canon

Kaede and Mari don't have interactions together due for both characters being existed in separate games. It's then considered that this pairing is indeed a cross-over ship from two universes. Although, this pair is very popular in both fandoms due for having several similarities. Both of them have a passion in playing the piano. Mari is known for being a perfectionist while playing it and Kaede is known for having her talent, The Ultimate Pianist. They will even have a scene in both games where both characters are shown playing their piano, although Kaede was only own playing the piano when she was already deceased. Even though Mari died due for falling in the stairs, she was later implied by the players in the beginning of her respective game that she hanged herself along with Kaede who actually died from hanging unlike Mari's situation.

When it comes to personality, both Kaede and Mari are very similar to one another. Both are known to be the optimistic and the peacemakers within their groups. They will always be the one to support their friends during tough situation. Mari is seen by her friends as their older sister figure while Kaede is seen as the leader of her group.

Even they have these personalities, it seems that their have few differences regards to their personalities. Mari is often shown as a prankster in her group and would often hide bugs in Hero's desk in school. She would also make jokes and few teases during conversations with her friends. With Kaede, she often asks insensitive questions to her classmates which often makes them uncomfortable to reply. She is also known for saying sexual comments to other girls like Tsumugi Shirogane, which many people believe that she might be bisexual. But when it comes to discussing about liking girls, she is somewhat oblivious and doesn't really understand the topic. The two are also close with a "sad" boy.

Fanon

Many fans who ship this pairing would often see this as a crackship. Mostly because they are both known to be hanged to death. Some fans would also rather ship them as friends due for not being able to interact together because of existing in different universes. Some fanarts will even include both of them playing the piano together or "hanging" around with one another. There are currently few fanfics about this ship and it's very unique for both of them having fanfiction stories together.

Although, this ship often get overshadowed by their other popular ships. For Kaede's, Saimatsu, Irumatsu, and Amamatsu. While for Mari's, HeroMari or possibly even Maribrey. In the Danganronpa fandom, some fans would also make Omori AUs where Kaede is shown to be Mari while Shuichi Saihara is Sunny, Mari's younger brother.
