At first, I just tried entering because Yuyu told me to, but... at some point, I just started having fun with it!
Nejire Hado about Yuyu Haya in "The Funnest Part of Cultural Festivals is Preparing for Them! Part 2"

Yuyu Haya (甲矢 (はや) (ゆう) () Haya Yūyu?) is a third year student in the Hero Course at U.A. High School.[1]


Yuyu has short, cropped, dyed reddish hair and reddish-brown eyes with long lower eyelashes.

She wears the female school uniform without the jacket and rolls up her sleeves. She also wears tights underneath her skirt and two pink bracelets on her right wrist.


U.A. School Festival Arc

Yuyu is seen helping Nejire Hado with her preparations for the Miss Con Beauty Pageant at the School Festival while commenting that she finds Nejire is more of the "cute kind" than the "sexy kind", with another student helping her.

Nejire then approaches Yuyu and introduces her to Izuku Midoriya and Mirio Togata while confessing that the first time she entered the beauty pageant was at Yuyu's suggestion, but then admits that she has been having fun ever since and flashes a smile. As the day of the Festival approaches.[2] Yuyu helps Nejire as much as possible to prepare for the parade.[3]

Yuyu was present holding Nejire's dress when she overhears Neito Monoma telling Itsuka Kendo that there is no doubt she will win. When the time comes for Nejire to perform in the beauty pageant, Yuyu supports her very determined and explaining why Nejire lost the previous year. As Nejire performs using her Quirk, Yuyu is in awe and Nejire is declared the winner while Yuyu cries with joy at her victory.



Unknown Quirk: Yuyu's Quirk is unknown, however, given that she is a Hero student, her Quirk is likely very strong and well trained.


Nejire Hado

Yuyu and Nejire appear to be close friends and refer to each other by their first names. During her junior year school festival at U.A, Nejire calmly approached Yuyu and confesses that she only entered the annual beauty pageant at Yuyu's suggestion, but admits that she has been having fun. Yuyu wholeheartedly supports Nejire and helps her prepare for the contest.[2]

During the preparations for the contest, Yuyu defended Nejire when Bibimi insulted her outfit and became very angry when she thinks that Bibimi was trying to sabotage her after finding a nail in her shoe, but Nejire stops her and thinks it is some kind of mistake. Nejire went up to Yuyu, saying that even when she doesn’t feel herself, she’s still her, and that’s everything she likes about her, part of the whole package, and seeing the things you don’t like about yourself in a better light.

Yuyu was determined that Nejire would win the beauty pageant and cries with joy when Nejire wins the pageant. Yuyu believes that Nejire is "the cutest thing in the galaxy".[1]

Bibimi Kenranzaki

Unlike Nejire, Yuyu doesn't seem to be on good terms with Bibimi and gets upset when Bibimi teases Nejire's dress and faces her and tells her to walk away. Yuyu becomes very enraged when she thinks that Bibimi tried to sabotage Nejire, after finding a large nail in her shoe and insists that it was Bibimi.

But he apologizes to her after finding out that Bibimi never tried to sabotage Nejire. In the volume extras it is revealed that Bibimi does not like oranges, Yuyu's favorite food.
