Both girls had very lonely childhoods (for different reasons), and carry a strong love for their families. Tsuyu spent most of her time playing caretaker for her little siblings, and only had one friend through her school life. Ochako’s family is very poor due to a lack of business, leading her parents to have to be away from her most of the time.
As they are both close friends with Izuku Midoriya, Tenya Iida, and Shoto Todoroki, they are often found sitting next to each other at scenes set in the lunch room. During the sports festival arc, Ochako is impressed by how fast Tsuyu can move across a length of rope stretched over a chasm.
In the training camp, they work together to take down robots attacking them. Later, in the woods, Tsuyu holds Ochako's hand so that she won't be scared. When Toga attacks them, she seems jealous of the pet names they call each other. Tsuyu chose to use her quirk to send Ochako out of harms way before anything else. Ochako comforted Tsuyu after she was feeling guilty for not supporting their fellow classmates on their mission to go rescue Bakugou from the villains.
Both Tsuyu and Ochako did their Hero Work-Studies with Nejire Hadou at the Ryukyu agency. This is where their super move, Meteor Frafrotskies, is first revealed. Ochako's quirk levitates debris that Tsuyu hurls at the enemies using her tongue.
In a practice rescue mission, Ochako is sent down into a ravine to comfort Tsuyu and levitate her up to the surface.

Beaten only by MomoJirou, TsuChako ranks as the second most written femslash ship in My Hero Academia. Additionally lt is the third most written ship for Ochako (after IzuOcha and Kacchako), and by far the most written for Tsuyu. TsuChako is rather popular among fans of DekuSquad ships, more specifically TodoDeku as a way to pair Ochako off rather than leave her hanging with the loss of Izuku. Other ships it is commonly partnered with are KiriBaku, MomoJirou, and KamiShin.
