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.

An electrifying ship, Kyoka and Denki are simply adorable. The two appear frequently around each other, accompanied by their constant banter. Viewers know Denki's electricity packs some surprising power, one that comes at a cost; he's usually wiped out by the end of it. Kyoka enjoys providing commentary on this fact, and a lot of fan art on the two recently helped this ship to float.

While you can't see her, Toru is always the life of the party at school. Her hard-working spirit and wonderfully bright personality make her a pretty cute fit for someone like Mashirao. While he always comes across just a little bit embarrassed by her, Mashirao possesses the kind of attributes that would make a very cute coupling with his equal dedication to being a hero and good student.

Eijiro And Katsuki

In a bromance of the century, Eijiro emerged as perhaps the only one Katsuki could ever tolerate. With his explosive personality, Katsuki has been one of the most challenging characters in the series. While his classmates merely tolerate Katsuki, Eijiro appears to be the only one who actually cares to befriend him. He even goes on a rescue mission with his friends to make sure Katsuki gets back safe. God love ya, bros.

Fumikage And Tsuyu

Tsuyu and Fumikage make a decent ship, especially after they took their exams together. Having to fight as a hero team, the two work relatively well as a pair; both are cool-minded and always think ahead. After Tsuyu and Fumikage each save the other from a tough situation, it became clear to see why people put them together in a ship. Besides, it's likely that Dark Shadow ships this behind Fumikage's back.
