Fumikage Tokoyami vs. Momo Yaoyorozu is a battle fought between Class 1-A students Fumikage Tokoyami and Momo Yaoyorozu during the U.A. Sports Festival's Fighting Tournament.


Present Mic introduces Fumikage and Momo to the crowd for the sixth match of the finals. Mashirao asks Izuku how he thinks the battle will turn out. Izuku explains that timing is the key to this battle. Momo ponders Fumikage's abilities and tries to strategize before the match begins.[1]


The match suddenly begins and catches Momo off-guard. Fumikage immediately calls on Dark Shadow to attack. Momo defends herself by creating a shield. She tries to create a polearm, but Dark Shadow circles back around and strikes her shield before she can focus on her Quirk. Dark Shadow swings by again and knocks the shield off Momo's arm.

Momo creates another shield and Dark Shadow rams it, knocking her back. The onslaught from Dark Shadow mysteriously stops, confusing Momo. She creates a pole on her arm to take the offensive, but Midnight reveals that Momo has been knocked out of bounds without her realizing it. Momo looks down to see her foot slid out of bounds and Midnight announces Fumikage is the victor.[1]


Fumikage recalls Dark Shadow before bowing to show his respect to Momo and leaving the stage. Present Mic comments that their fight was another fast and overwhelming victory during the tournament. Momo laments her defeat, knowing she was unable to showcase any of her talents. Izuku is taken back by Fumikage's strength and surmises Fumikage's strategy was to focus his attacks on Momo's shield to avoid injuring her.[1]
