TokoTsuyu is the het ship between Tsuyu Asui and Fumikage Tokoyami from the My Hero Academia fandom.


This section is in need of major improvement. Please help improve this article by editing it.

Although their interactions together have been minimal compared to other characters, they have been paired together several times and appear to work well when they are.

Canonically, they both share animal-like quirks which many view as the reason they ship them. They appear very cooperative in fights together as well, ever since they were first paired up together in All Might's first lesson with Class 1-A, and have continued to be paired up with one another during their other team-up battle trails up to the practical section of their final exams.

During their test/fight with Ectoplasm, Tsuyu and Fumikage also appeared to have chemistry in battle, displaying elite energy and teamwork. Their quirks appear to work very well together in both evasive and combat situations. Tsuyu believed that with Fumikage's strength they would be OK, showing that they at least slightly respect each other. Together they managed to pass their finals.

However, as stated prior, they do not interact enough to have a solid amount of canon interactions to fully judge their relationship. They do appear to be friends, although they clearly aren't as close as some other characters are. The frog/bird dynamic also helps further the possibility that they may become closer by bonding over their similarities.


This ship sailed as result as being matched in their quirk training, in addition to both having animal characteristics (Asui as a frog, and Tokoyami as a bird). This ship is also well-known in the fandom, so that's why it gets much appreciation by the fans. It is the most written for Tokoyami and the second most written for Asui. While most of the ship's fanart commonly depicts them as a princess and her prince, since Asui's frog quirk commonly has most TokoTsuyu fans portray her as Tiana from Disney's The Princess and the Frog. Along with there being fanwork that has Tokoyami's shadow being friendly with Asui or tries to get him to ask her out.

On AO3, the ship has over 454 fanfics. Along with TokoTsuyu having reasonable fanbases on Tumblr and DeviantArt.
