TsuChako is the femslash ship between Tsuyu Asui and Ochako Uraraka from the My Hero Academia fandom.
Tsuyu and Ochako didn't interact as much at first, but over time they became good friends until they finally became best friends and are constantly seen together on and off Hero's work, showing that they are very close. Tsuyu lets Ochako call her "Tsu", a nickname that only allows her close friends to call her, and they care and protect when the other is in danger.
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.
Thanks to the functionality of their Quirks, both are very good when they work or fight as a team. Ochako's Zero Gravity ensures that solid objects lose their gravity and weight, giving Tsuyu the opportunity to charge or launch them at opponents with his tongue without her taking damage, achieving a perfect combat style that works both at close and long range.
Although they still did not talk much, 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. After the students finish their internships with Professional Heroes at the Vs. Hero Killer Arc, Tsuyu is shown to distinguish Ochako's mood swings better than the other girls in her Class, as when she returned from her internship with Gunhead, Tsuyu said that Ochako had developed a new sense of battle.
Before the Forest Training Camp, Ochako and Tsuyu can be seen talking and smiling at each other. When Pixie-Bob creates Earth monsters to take on Class 1-A, Tsuyu and Ochako combined their skills and worked together to defeat some, being their first time teaming up to fight. The next day in the test of bravery in the forest, it was night and Tsuyu takes Ochako's hand so that she won't be scared. When Himiko Toga attacks them, she seems jealous of the pet names they call each other and Tsuyu chose to use her Quirk to prioritize Ochako's safety before her own. Ochako immediately became angry when Himiko wounded Tsuyu and attacked Himiko, using Gunhead Martial Arts for the second time and impressing Tsuyu. After Himiko escapes, the two remain together until the police arrive.
Ochako noticed Tsuyu's sadness and comforted her after she felt guilty for not supporting their fellow classmates on their mission to go rescue Katsuki Bakugou from the villains, and when Tsuyu wanted to talk to the members of the Bakugou Rescue Squad to apologize after Class 1-A moved into the Heights Alliance dorm rooms, Ochako spoke for her first, hugged her and stroked her back in an attempt to comfort her. After a few days of training, the girls would relax together in the common area and comment on the rough training for the provisional licensing exam. Ochako was distracted and only returns to normal when Tsuyu touches her shoulder, drawing her attention. Ochako reveals that her heart has been elsewhere recently and Mina Ashido begins to insist that she is in love, but Tsuyu along with Momo Yaoyorozu interrupt and tell Mina, Toru Hagakure, and Kyoka Jiro not to meddle in someone else's love life, to Ochako's relief.
When the Hero Work-Studies began in Internship Arc, neither of them had an agency to turn to until Shota Aizawa told them that Nejire Hadou wanted to talk to they and they went to see her. At some point, Nejire took Ochako and Tsuyu to know the Ryukyu agency and during their debut as Heroines they created one of the first supermoves shown in team, called Meteor Frafrotskies. The supermovement was created in a way that Ochako's Quirk levitated the debris that Tsuyu threw at the enemies with his tongue. Ryukyu congratulates them when he sees them fight together and allows them to attend Sir Nighteye's planned meeting. In the mission against the Shie Hassaikai, Ochako and Tsuyu effectively helped Nejire and Ryukyu against Rikiya Katsukame and Ryukyu entrusted them with the safety of Sir Nighteye when he was seriously injured.
After Eri's mission and rescue ends, the two can be seen leaving the hospital and being greeted by their classmates alongside Izuku and Eijiro Kirishima. Tsuyu notices Ochako pensive due to what happened with Sir Nighteye and his meeting with Aizawa and asks Ochako if he is alright, while having a sad face on his face. Although they don't interact as much in the school festival arc as they did previously, when the Class concert ends they can be seen together watching Nejire at the beauty pageant and having fun at the festival alongside Yuga Aoyama, slightly showing a blush on their faces.
At the Joint Training Arc, Ochako was cheering for Tsuyu when she watches her fight against the Class 1-B team sitting among the students and at the Christmas party at U.A, they are both sitting together celebrating and talking with their classmates and it revealed that they will both return to do their internships with Ryukyu. When the internships return, the Ryukyu agency has to do a mission with the Oki Mariner Crew and Ochako seems to get along with Tsuyu's friend Sirius. While they are on the beach, along with Nejire and Sirius, they were playing Volleyball and after the airplane that Ochako had got on to stop some Trigger dealers was about to crash into the sea, Tsuyu worriedly yells at Ochako that get out of the airplane.
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.
