SaiMomo is the femslash ship between Saiko Intelli and Momo Yaoyorozu from the My Hero Academia fandom.


In Provisional Hero License Exam Arc, after Shoto defeats all (10) students from Seijin High School, the next scene shown Saiko and her classmates set a trap for Class 1-A students that enters their building. Momo, Tsuyu, Kyoka and Mezo enters a building after failing to find the rest of their classmates. Kyoka hears people ascending the building from below until her ears are injured by a sudden blast of music. Saiko and her classmates enter the elevator after completing "phase one". Outside, another student uses a slingshot to crack the windows of the room Momo and company are in so that they can't see outside. Momo notices the enemy is sealing off Kyoka and Mezo's Quirks that are good for detecting people. She surmises that the enemy is trying to keep their group trapped inside the room and are likely right outside the door. Kyoka recklessly tries to attack and she's injured by the sniper outside the building. Then the air vents start pouring in cold air that forces Tsuyu to sleep. The enemy students weld the other escape door shut and force Momo to try and think of an escape plan.

Saiko has used her IQ Quirk to outmaneuver Momo and her group up until now. She expects that Momo will overuse her Quirk in order to stop the cold air vents inside the room. Saiko's plan is to make her overuse Creation so they can defeat her group when all their Quirks have been nullified. She gains inspiration from Izuku's courage during their mission to rescue Katsuki from the League of Villains and realizes that she has to save her classmates. Momo asks her friends to endure the cold and produces headphones for them to wear. Then she produces a high powered amp. Saiko readies her allies to storm the room but is surprised when her rival students counter with a high-frequency sonic waves attack. All of the Seiai Academy students except for Saiko are sleeping because of a large amp created by Momo to amplify Kyoka's Quirk. The Class 1-A students leave the room to find Momo's plan was successful. However, Saiko hides behind the door and then locks herself and Momo back inside the room. Saiko admits she's surprised Momo would go with such a high-risk tactic rather than the predictable route.

Momo can't move as well from overusing her Quirk and Saiko tries to tag her targets to make her fail. Momo counters by handcuffing their arms together. She buys enough time for Mezo to break down the door. Tsuyu rushes in and uses her tongue to restrain Saiko's other arm. Saiko is shocked that Momo's allies came to her rescue because they could've passed without her. Kyoka, Tsuyu, and Mezo explain that they would never leave their friend behind and Momo follows up by saying that's just how Class 1-A is. Impressed by the Momo and her classmates, Saiko admits defeat. Saiko and Momo are similar in their loyalty to their classmates, and they're both smart students, just that Momo is smart because she really achieve it meanwhile Saiko's intelligence is just because of her quirk, it came naturally. They and Itsuka got very good leadership skills, just meanwhile Momo is insecure about her leadership skills, Saiko is very confident about her skills, to the point of her being full of herself.


SaiMomo is a rare ship in the My Hero Academia fandom. It is often overshadowed by other more famous ships, such as TodoMomo and MomoJirou. Saiko, being one of the minor characters, not even a canon character that Horikoshi Kohei created by himself (She's a Studio Bones original MHA character), not much people has been considering to ship her with anyone, and the ones who did? They decided to ship her with Momo, resulting in SaiMomo being Saiko's most popular ship. The shippers like seeing the similarities between them; them both being smart and having a very good leadership skills, and likes tea. A fan make a joke about Momo creates some Golden Imperial Tea instead of creates things they need to escape when they're locked up in the building, and Saiko notices there's a rare expensive type of tea and she begged Momo to give her some. Some fans like thinking Saiko will give Momo more self-confidence and Momo will lower Saiko's oftenness in being full of herself. The ship currently has 11+ works in AO3.
