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?)[1], is a student in Class 3-A at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero.[2]


Yuyu has short, cropped hair that has been dyed salmon-colored, and reddish-brown eyes with long lower eyelashes; she also has several piercings in her ears, all with grey studs. She wears a slightly disheveled girls' U.A. school uniform, her collar crooked, tie loose and her sleeves rolled up. She sports tights underneath her skirt, and has two pink bracelets on her right wrist.



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 is the best friend of Nejire and her classmate and they seem to be very close, in addition to referring to each other by their first name, a level of closeness that Nejire has not shown with other friends. Nejire has let Yuyu help her since her first year to prepare for the school festival's annual beauty pageant and for Nejire's latest beauty pageant, Yuyu guided her to victory by helping her prepare everything from her outfits to the content of her performance.[2]

In the preparations for the school festival of his third year and latest year at the U.A., Nejire calmly approached Yuyu and confesses to Izuku and Mirio that the first time she entered the beauty course was at Yuyu's suggestion, but admits that she has been having fun ever since. Yuyu wholeheartedly supports Nejire and helps her prepare for the contest in the days leading up to the Festival.[3] 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.[4]

Yuyu believes that no one can compare to Nejire's beauty and even calls her "the cutest thing in the galaxy"[5] and gets scared ​that Nejire cannot fulfill his wish to win. During Nejire's last Beauty pageant at the School Festival, Yuyu was determined that Nejire would win the beauty pageant explaining that Nejire doesn't need to compare herself to Bibimi because she has her own strength and cries with joy when Nejire wins the pageant.[6]

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 she 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.
