Tenkaede is the femslash ship between Tenko Chabashira and Kaede Akamatsu from the Danganronpa fandom.

Canon

When Kaede and Tenko first meet, Tenko surprises Kaede by yelling to 'build up her spirit energy'. She then introduces herself as the Ultimate Aikido Master. Kaede says that Tenko is cute, and Tenko gets flustered, blushing and stuttering. When Shuichi compliments Tenko in the same way, Tenko is immediately disgusted. She states that she doesn't take compliments from men, prompting surprise from Kaede.

Before Kaede's execution, Tenko jumps to Kaede's defense, saying that she will fight the Exisals to protect Kaede. However Kaede soon stops her while crying, accepting her death. After Kaede's execution, Tenko seems to be very upset. She is seen crying and angry at Monokuma. She asks if human life has no value to him at all, and says that he is the worst of the worst.

During FTEs, when Kaede gives Tenko a gift she loves, Tenko says that it makes her so happy she starts to blush. When she gives Tenko a gift Tenko hates, Tenko will act hesitant but say that the thought of Kaede giving the gift to someone else 'makes her heart hurt'. She also says that "only girls understand other girls' delicate hearts!" In their second FTE together, Kaede can compliment Tenko on her smile, and Tenko gets flustered and blushes. Kaede says that she thinks Tenko is really charming. However, Kaede's FTEs with Tenko end at the second one, as Kaede dies shortly after.

Both Kaede and Tenko have a very cheerful and optimistic disposition. Though, while Kaede is more calm and logical, Tenko is more passionate and emotional. Kaede could balance out and help Tenko calm down when she gets too intense, and this does happen several times throughout FTEs and their conversations.

Quotes

Tenko“Oh, yes! I'm Tenko Chabashira! HAIYAH! The Ultimate Aikido Master!”
Kaede“ Ooh! I always imagine Aikido masters to be huge, burly guys, but you're so cute!”
Tenko“C-cute?! Aaaah... St-stop iiit... I... I-I'm not... cute...”
— Tenko and Kaede in Tenko's introduction
Kaede“You smile like you're having loads of fun, and that makes me smile, too.”
Tenko“You...think so?”
Kaede“Anyway, I think you're a really charming girl...”
— Tenko and Kaede in Tenko's second Free Time Event

Fanon

The ship sailed because of Kaede and Tenko's cute, romantic interactions, with Kaede complimenting her and Tenko getting flustered. Though it is not one of the most popular ships, often being overshadowed by its rival ships Tenmiko and Saimatsu, which are more canon and shown in the story.

However, there are some fanart and fanfiction, and the ship has a decent amount of fans. They have a little over 100 works in their Archive of Our Own tag and quite a bit of fanart. Their personalities can be considered quite similar, as both girls are cheerful, optimistic, and energetic. Both Kaede and Tenko being canon queers has also helped boost the ship's popularity. Some consider Kaede calling Tenko "cute" a ship tease of some sort.
