List Rules Vote up the ships you most support in 'My Hero Academia.'

My Hero Academia grew to massive popularity within the anime community and beyond since first airing in 2016 - and, of course, with every long-standing or popular anime, you know one thing always follows: shipping!

The best My Hero Academia ships may not be the focal point of the plot, but they do provide a point of interest for fans of the show. A variety of characters exist in the My Hero series, all with different powers and personalities that give shippers great material to work with.

People adore thinking about cute pairings for Izuku, but other popular characters such as Tsuyu made their way into the hearts of the fanbase. Coming from a newer show, My Hero Academia ships are less-renowned than other popular anime couples, but rest assured if the show maintains its hot streak, the ships will continue to sail.

As the lead character, Izuku gets shipped with a lot of people, but Ochako remains one of his constant companions since the entrance exam. Viewers see these two together everywhere, and as the series progresses, it becomes clear they both share feelings for each other.

Through fighting together, supporting each other, and being the best of friends, Izuku and Ochako form a ship that is simply pure.

Shoto And Momo

This couple looks rather made-to-be in the My Hero Academia world, at least from what's released of the series thus far. Momo feels second to Shoto and carries a lot on her shoulders; she admires him, but also feels she's not good enough to compete with him.

During their exams and when they're paired up together, Shoto reveals to Momo his vote for her to be the class representative. The amount of motivation, confidence, and similar backgrounds that these two share makes them a ship that just might sail.

Izuku And Shoto

Shoto used to be a little like Katsuki in that he wanted to best Izuku and make it to the top. The connection between All Might and Izuku was clear to him from the beginning, and much like his father, Shoto felt he could not come in second at any cost.

Izuku displays his interest in Shoto and even challenges him to utilize both sides of his power. This makes for wonderful shipping material and is part of the reasons they're one of the greatest My Hero ships out there, whether or not it's platonic.

Himiko And Dabi

Villains need ships, too! Himiko and Dabi operate as part of the League of Villains, where both of them want to show the world what they've got. While Himiko can be a little out there as a character, Dabi presents herself as much more level-headed, making them a very difficult team to beat. Power aside, they both share similar goals and they don't look half bad together.
