Tenko and Angie have somewhat of a rivalry, and Angie is the only other girl she isn't that fond of. Tenko, who doesn't believe in God's help, sees Angie as an unsettling person since she is always happy during the Killing Game knowing that God is on her side. Tenko's dislike for Angie strengthens once she and Himiko Yumeno become close friends as well, believing she's being brainwashed. Tenko later becomes jealous in Chapter 2, making a comment about "why couldn't have been [her]!?" in regards to Himiko worshipping Atua, as Angie claims, is a very "handsome God." When Angie and Himiko announce their magic show in the gym, Tenko elects to stand by the gym's entrance, muttering about Angie, and telling Shuichi she's trying to telepathically communicate with Himiko, which doesn't work.
In Chapter 3, Tenko joins the Student Council led by Angie in order to keep an eye on the artist and protect Himiko. She ends up betraying Angie and the rest of the Student Council when she guided Shuichi and Maki to Angie's Research Lab to make an attempt at stopping Angie from performing the ritual. Tenko does shamefully admit that she dislikes Angie enough to the point she thought of "wanting her gone" a while ago to Maki, but feels terrible for thinking that, especially after Angie dies the next day. Tenko was devastated to find Angie dead despite their misgivings and regrets how she was being hostile towards her. She volunteers to help with the Caged Child Ritual to resurrect Angie with the others to try and reveal the killer but fails when she's killed by Korekiyo during the seance.
Ultimate Talent Development Plan
While playing as Angie, for the Winter Event, if she decides to go watch Himiko's magic show from the audience, she will run into Tenko. Angie asks why Tenko is in the audience, since she helped to prepare the show, and Tenko responds that she only did menial tasks. Tenko thanks Angie for working on the set, but then starts groaning, prompting Angie to ask what's wrong. Tenko says that although Himiko asked for Angie's help first, and Angie's art skills were perfect for the job, the show still couldn't have been completed if Tenko wasn't there. Angie says Atua agrees with Tenko, and says Tenko is very dedicated, which surprises her. Angie uses this as a way to promote Tenko dedicating herself to prayer, and Tenko gets angry that Angie would make her realize that girls can be sneaky like that.
With Tenko being attracted to Himiko and Angie being Himiko's best friend, the two developed a sort of rivalry, although it was mostly one-sided on Tenko's side. With this, the ship sailed among those who prefer to ship the love rivals together instead of both with the person they fight over. Both being victims of the same chapter also helped for some. However, this ship appears to be the least popular out of all the combinations involving those three characters, as it has the smallest number of fan fictions on Archive of Our Own. Usually, this ship is supported by those who prefer to ship Himiko with Kokichi, instead of shipping Tenmiko or Yonameno, which Tenkangie rivals.
