My Hero Academia is packed with interesting characters, and its fans often debate over their potential relationship as a couple. While many characters in the series have hinted at having a romantic interest in another, we rarely get to see these relationships play out. In this article, we will explore some of the more popular MHA ships and what they might mean for the series overall.
The couples have been separated according to their nature as straight ships, yaoi ships, and yuri ships.
It should also be noted that they are not ranked by any means. I’ve listed them as they came to mind. If you want an actual ranking, you should check out this post, where I’ve ranked the top 10 My Hero Academia ships by popularity.
Also, there is a poll at the end of this post. Be sure to vote for your favorite BNHA couple there!
13 Best Straight Ships In MHA
Want to know about the popular straight MHA ships and couples, along with their ship names? Here’s a list of some of the most popular My Hero Academia straight ships in the fandom.
|Kaminari & Jirou||KamiJirou|
|Todoroki x Momo||TodoMomo|
|Izuku x Ochako||IzuOcha|
|Kirishima x Mina||KiriMina|
|Tokoyami x Tsuyu||TokoTsuyu|
|Tooru x Ojiro||OjiTooru|
|Toga x Dabi||HimiDabi|
|Bakugo x Uraraka||Kacchako|

|Bakugo x Toga||BakuToga|
|Toga x Deku||TogaDeku|
|Midoriya x Tsuyu||MidoTsuyu|
|All Might x Inko||InkoMight|
1. Kaminari x Jirou (KamiJirou): The Most Compatible MHA Couple
There could be no My Hero Academia couple more suited for each other than Kaminari and Jirou. From their quirks to their personal interests, they have a lot in common.
And seeing how things went in the anime, this ship is very likely to become canon.
2. Todoroki x Momo (TodoMomo): The Most Adorable Couple Of All MHA Ships
This is one of the most popular ships in My Hero Academia. From the anime, we can obviously tell that Momo likes Todoroki. She always idolized and admired him.
Todoroki also had deep respect for Momo and appreciated her skills. It became evident when he voted for her to become the class representative and chose her as a partner in the cavalry battle.
There is a high possibility for them to end up as couples by the end of the anime.
3. Izuku x Ochako (IzuOcha): Most Loved Among All Straight MHA Ships
Midoriya and Uraraka are made for each other. Literally. The author of My Hero Academia has clearly shown how Ochako secretly has a crush on Deku and how she admires him.
In the beginning, Midoriya used to get flustered interacting with her (like when he saw Ochako wearing a skin-tight suit); however, they’ve managed to become great friends, and Midoriya has overcome his shyness.

4. Kirishima x Mina (KiriMina): The Childhood Friends MHA Ship
These two went to the same middle school. Kirishima was weak back then, while Mina was strong and athletic. He admired her for being able to stop the bullies that he couldn’t.
Later on, after they joined U.A. High and Kirishima learned his unbreakable form, Mina was clearly impressed. She even created her own super move called “Acid Man,” inspired by his new form.
5. Tokoyami x Tsuyu (TokoTsuyu)
This ship just feels right. I couldn’t agree more on this one. This couple is so popular that there are several fanfictions and fanarts shipping them together.
6. Tooru x Ojiro (OjiTooru)
I didn’t know people were shipping Tooru and Mashirao until recently. As a matter of fact, I thought invisibility would only make things complicated in a relationship. So I never expected Tooru to be shipped to anyone.
However, MHA fans have successfully made these two a couple and have even written several fanfictions about their relationship.
7. Toga x Dabi (HimiDabi): Popular of All Villains’ MHA Ships
By far, Dabi is the only My Hero Academia character who has managed to become so popular despite having very little onscreen time. On the other hand, Toga had decent screen time and became the fans favorite right after her fight with Uraraka and Mioriya.
While these two belong to the same villain group, there is no sign of them showing any interest in each other. However, this doesn’t stop the fans from shipping Dabi and Toga together.
Now that I think about it, they make a pretty decent couple, don’t they?
8. Bakugo x Uraraka (Kacchako)
Bakugou has always had a foul mouth and a salty personality, which bothered most people. However, Uraraka is the only one who said that his way of saying and doing things made her laugh.
In the U.A. sports festival arc, Bakugou fought her with all his strength instead of going easy on her. Even though he was booed by the audience for “toying” with Uraraka, he took his fight with her seriously.
These events sparked the beginning of the Kacchako fandom.
9. Todoroki x Uraraka (TodoChako)
Todoroki x Ochako are a rare pair in the MHA fandom. Fans are either neutral about it or they are not aware of this ship at all.
This is mostly because Todoroki and Uraraka don’t interact all that much. They respect each other as friends and as fellow heroes, but that’s as far as they go in the anime.
10. Bakugo x Toga (BakuToga): The Most Interesting Couple Of All MHA Ships
I’d honestly love to see this ship come to life. Bakugou and Toga have completely different personalities, but that’s exactly what makes this couple better.
Bakugou is very self-reliant and righteous, whereas Toga has this “crazy” personality and does whatever she feels like doing.
These two, as a couple, would probably be more interesting than the rest of the MHA ships.
11. Toga x Deku (TogaDeku)
In the anime, Toga has an eye for Deku. She gets really happy whenever she gets a chance to meet him. But the only thing was that she wanted to see Deku suffer rather than just be with him.
Regardless, her obsession for him is real, which led to the creation of this ship.
12. Midoriya x Tsuyu (MidoTsuyu)
Both Midoriya and Tsuyu have cute personalities. They are both kind, self-reliant, and also a bit oblivious at times.
When I imagine them dating each other, it sure seems like a nice pair.
13. All Might x Inko (InkoMight)
I think this is a beautiful ship. The father figure becomes the father. That’s all I’ve got to say about this one, lol.
5+ Best MHA Ships: Yaoi Couples
|Kirishima x Bakugou||KiriBaku|
|Todoroki x Deku||TodoDeku|
|Bakugou x Deku||BakuDeku|
|Todoroki x Bakugou||TodoBaku|
|Eraser Head x Present Mic||EraserMic|
|Endeavor x Hawks||EndHawks|
1. Kirishima x Bakugou (KiriBaku): Most Loved My Hero Academia Ship
It is no secret that Bakugou and Kirishima are best buddies. Bakugou has higher expectations and faith in Kirishima than the rest of class 1-A.
2. Todoroki x Deku (TodoDeku)
Todoroki learned to accept and harness his fire powers because of Midoriya. And Midoriya went great lengths to make Todoroki accept his powers and break his psychological barriers.
This event made Todoroki respect Midoriya. It also gave birth to this ship.
3. Bakugou x Deku (BakuDeku): Most Popular Of All MHA Ships
Can we take a moment to appreciate how cute they look together?
Bakugou is always at odds with Midoriya. At first, it simply seemed like Bakugou hated Midoriya. But later on in the series, we can see that he legitimately cares about him and acknowledges him as a rival.
4. Todoroki x Bakugou (TodoBaku)
Todoroki was never scared of Bakugou’s wild personality, while others would prefer to restrain themselves in his presence. We can also see Todoroki making comments that tick Bakugou off.
Basically, they’d be one of the wildest My Hero Academia couples if they went out with each other.
5. Eraser Head x Present Mic (EraserMic)
Eraser Head and Present Mic have known each other for a long time. So they pretty much know everything about each other.
Present mic makes up for Aizawa’s lack of enthusiasm and liveliness. If they dated each other, they’d be the couple that filled each other’s shortcomings and made a complete relationship.
6. Endeavor x Hawks (EndHawks)
This is a pretty new MHA ship (for anime-only fans) that came into existence after seeing how Hawks wanted to make people acknowledge Endeavor as the No. 1 hero.
3+ MHA Ships: Yuri Couples
|Tsuyu x Ochako||TsuChako|
|Momo x Jirou||MomoJirou|
|Mina x Jirou||MinaJirou|
|Ochako x Mei||OchaMei|
1. Tsuyu x Ochako (TsuChako)
This MHA couple has a lot in common. They both had a lonely childhood and cared a lot about their families. We can also see that they sit next to each other most of the time during lunch.
2. Momo x Jirou (MomoJirou) – Cutest MHA Lesbian Couple
In my opinion, Momo and Jirou are one of the hottest My Hero Academia couples when it comes to Yuri. They are very close friends. We can see them pairing with each other most of the time in the anime.
It is also clear that they care for each other. Jirou defended Momo when Hanta made an unpleasant comment on Momo’s quirk. Similarly, when Jirou was being pressured to sing at the cultural festival, Momo jumped in and said that it was Jirou’s decision.
3. Mina x Jirou (MinaJirou)
The singer x the dancer! Both Jirou and Mina have an upbeat personality, which would make them one of the most cheerful couples in My hero academia.
4. Ochako x Mei (OchaMei)
Mei and Ochako aren’t very fond of each other in the anime. As a matter of fact, we can even say that they’re at odds with each other. This is evident from how Ochako was annoyed with Mei during the Sports Festival arc.
However, the fandom has yet again somehow shipped them together. Most fans are either neutral about this ship or simply do not know its existence.
