Kyotoku and Mika Jiro

Kyotoku and Mika support their daughter's dreams

Kyoka has an excellent relationship with her parents. It was they who taught her music and thanks to them, Kyoka has found her way around a couple of instruments.

When she was young, Kyoka felt pressured into wanting to be a hero since her parents desire for her to become a musician, feeling guilty when she finally revealed this to them, but Kyotoku and Mika actually were surprisingly very understanding and received this welcomingly, supporting Kyoka’s dream that even continues to this day after the incident where Kyoka was poisoned by Mustard's knockout gas during the Vanguard Action Squad Invasion event.[1]

Class 1-A

Denki Kaminari

Denki praises Kyoka because of her musical skills.

They seem to be good friends and are often seen together. The two heroes-in-training are paired together during the Battle Trial, and the Unforeseen Simulation Joint, showing to working well together. Kyoka is very helpful to Denki at the USJ, helping him to have more self-confidence about using his Quirk. As Denki thinks that he can't use his Quirk with Kyoka and Momo around, he is not able to use it well, but when forced to by Kyoka, he finally realized that he too can fight and be helpful.[2]

Kyoka happens to enjoy Denki's brainless state, finding it uncontrollably funny. Despite that, Denki does refer to Kyoka as a friend and she seems to view him in the same light as she hesitated to let a villain kill him. When Denki finds out about her insecurities around her music hobby, he compliments her, encouraging her to embrace her hobbies publicly, Kyoka gets flustered by his praise but is eventually convinced to pursue her hobby.[3]

When Denki begins to panic and fear for his life during the raid on the Gunga Mountain Villa, Midnight tells him to think of the person who matters most to him, and Denki's focus centers on Kyoka, who encourages him and tells him to stay strong. At this point Kyoka seems to be one of Denki's closest friends, and it's likely that Kyoka knows Denki thought about her following Midnight's advice because, as her earphone jacks were plugged into the ground, she spoke up right when Denki looked back at her.[4]

Momo Yaoyorozu

Kyoka fights villains along with Momo and Denki.

Momo and Kyoka appear to be close friends with each other. Along with Denki, the two battle against the Villain Alliance at the USJ, proving that they work well together. After that, they are often seen interacting with each other.

Kyoka later asks Momo to tutor her for the end of term test, which she accepted.[5]

When the class splits up to go shopping for the training camp, they pair up and go off shopping together. As well as this, Kyoka is proven to be somewhat defensive of her. During the summer training camp, she punches Hanta Sero for comparing Momo’s Quirk ability to convert fat at an atomic level into many different objects, to pooping.[6]

She later joins Kyoka's band, playing the keyboard, during the school School Festival and they pull off a wonderful performance with the teamwork of all of Class 1-A.

Mina Ashido

They are good terms as they are often seen talking as seen in Vs. Hero Killer Arc talking about their internships.

Koji Koda

Koji and Kyoka work together to pass their final exam.

Kyoka is partnered with Koji during the Final Exams Arc against Present Mic. Although Koji is very shy and terrified of insects, Kyoka's words and example of bravery convince him to use his Quirk to talk to bugs of the forest, while she is annoyed that he picked that late of a moment to talk and help. Nevertheless, Koji later carries an injured Kyoka through the forest to cross the escape gate, and together they pass the exam.[7]

During the festival, Koji encourages Kyoka to play giving her more confidence.

Toru Hagakure

They appear to good friends as they are often seen talking. During the Sports Festival, she is put off by Toru's desire to act as a cheerleader after they’re tricked by Denki and Minoru Mineta. She is also partnered up with Toru in the 'Test of Courage' during the Quirk Training Camp.

Toru is also thankful for Kyoka halting Minoru's attempted peeping in the locker room.

Hanta Sero

These two appear to be friends as they have been showing signs of interactions, whereas Jiro punched Hanta after disgusting Yaoyorozu because of her quirk.

Another scene they shared was when Jiro complimented Hanta for his unexpected dorm room design. Overall, they seem to get along well.

Izuku Midoriya

Despite not having too much interaction with each other, they mutually respect each other and care for one another.

In Vs. Hero Killer Arc, Kyoka initially wonders how Izuku will do in the Rescue Training Race and is amazed by Izuku overcoming the drawbacks of his Quirk. Kyoka also finds Izuku's notebook very interesting and impressive, where Izuku notes his classmates' abilities.

During the School Festival Arc, a flashback of Kyoka and Izuku is shown in which Kyoka asks Izuku for help on taking and revising her notes for the band. They share a friendly moment with each other in which he is impressed with her initial notetaking and proceeds to help her leading up to the School Festival. They seem to be on friendly terms from this point on with Izuku using her memory as one of many to push on in his fight with Danjuro Tobita in order to prevent him from cancelling the event and to make it back in time to help in her performance. During his struggles with Blackwhip, Kyoka is shown to be visibly worried for him.[8]

Katsuki Bakugo

Katsuki saves Kyoka.

Katsuki and Kyoka's interactions at the start of the series have been minimal. They were first seen sitting next to each other on the bus when Jiro looks annoyed and freaked out by Katsuki's loud angry outbursts at Denki.

Starting from the School Festival Arc is when these two begin to develop a tolerance for one another and a fledgling friendship. Kyoka asks Katsuki to help her in the Festival by playing guitar, he berates her and tells her he has no time for that. They are then seen working together and preparing for their performance with the other members of the band.

They are later paired up on the same team during the Class 1-A vs Class 1-B trials. Kyoka and Katsuki come to understand each other and put trust into one another. Katsuki, who always works solo, puts trust into his teammates and relies on Kyoka to scout out and listen for their opponents. Katsuki later comes to her aid when she was cornered by the opposing team in the Joint Training Battle.[9] She is grateful for this and they along with the rest of their team went on to overpower their foes, achieving a complete victory.
