Anime Manga My Hero Academia

Who do you think has a crush on Momo? (It’s not Todoroki)

With a girl as smart, beautiful, and good-hearted as Momo Yaoyorozu, it isn’t difficult to assume that many like her romantically.

When we talk about My Hero Academia’s setting, despite the whole superpowers element, it remains a high school in the end, and what is a school without some drama?

In any gathering of teens, love is in the air, and while it is toned down in the series due to its serious themes, there are bound to be some crushes.

The ‘My Hero Academia character databook’ released last year revealed the character who was “kind of into Yaoyorozu.”

Before finding out who the person crushing on her is, does Momo like anyone? Could the attraction between them be mutual?

1. Does Momo Yaoyorozu Like Anyone?

Momo Yaoyorozu does not like anyone romantically in the series. Despite that, fans ship her with her classmate Todoroki, and even Tenya Iida.

In My Hero Academia’s character book, it was revealed that Yosetsu Awase from 1-B has a crush on Momo.

I. Tenya Iida

Tenya Iida is one of the few characters who’s even more serious than Momo and makes her look quite light-hearted. He is the class representative for Class 1-A, with Yaoyorozu being the Vice President.

Due to this, both interact a lot, and their mature and serious personalities have led to them forming a close relationship.

However, in all probability, this relationship seems to be entirely platonic, and the chances of Iida and Yaoorozu liking each other romantically are slim.

II. Todoroki

Todoroki is one character who has been constantly shipped with Momo since the very beginning, and even now, their ship is still sailing strong.

Due to Shoto’s stoic personality, it is difficult to imagine him with anyone other than Yaoyorozu, who seems mature, serious, and understanding.

From Momo’s perspective, Todoroki is someone she really respects, and it is partly thanks to him that she developed confidence in herself.

Shoto, on the other hand, admires her leadership skills, and even votes for her during the class president election, showing his trust in her.

Momo Yaoyorozu likes Todoroki; however, both of them are caught up in their own issues at the moment and do not have the time to engage romantically. As the series progresses, they might even end up together.

III. Midoriya

While not thinking much of Midoriya, as he gained control over his quirk, Momo started to see him in a new light. She is constantly amazed by his progress and often looks up to Midoriya for leadership.

When Izuku, Tenya, and Momo joined others to rescue Bakugou, they co-operated quite well and developed confidence in each other.

Momo Yaoyorozu does not like Midoriya in a romantic way. While she respects his abilities and personality, she only sees him as a good friend in the end.

IV. Yosetsu Awase

Yosetsu Awase from class 1-B has a crush on Momo Yaoyorozu, according to the MHA Character Databook released last year.

It is believed that he developed it after working with her when the Vanguard attacked the Forest Training Camp.

The fandom was pleasantly surprised when this was revealed since all the fanfics which showed Awase as a romantic partner for Momo turned out to be canon.

However, many argued that Yosetsu’s crush on Momo wasn’t anything special, as probably half the student body liked her. While that may be true, hardly anyone would risk their lives to protect her, as Awase did.

Momo Yaoyorozu does not like Yosetsu Awase as they have barely been seen interacting at all. While it may develop later in the series, at this point, there’s no indication of her reciprocating his feelings.

2. Who Will She End Up With?

Momo comes from a rich and famous family and has a powerful quirk on top of that.

She is smart, beautiful, kind, and generally gets along with everyone. Due to this, she is a fan-favorite and is often shipped with a lot of characters.

Momo Yaoyorozu will not end up with anyone as of this moment. She is focusing on developing her self-confidence and becoming a good Pro-hero.

Furthermore, she has also assumed important duties in U.A., such as becoming the vice-president for her class and thus does not have the time to spare on romantic relationships.
