Kuroo Tetsurou/Tsukishima Kei is a pairing in the Haikyuu fandom. Kuroo is on team Nekoma, while Tsukishima is on team Karasuno.


Kuroo and Tsukishima first meet at the practice match between Karasuno and Nekoma. At the summer training camp in Tokyo, Kuroo, along with Bokuto Koutarou, invites Tsukishima to practice with them in their spare time. Kuroo teaches Tsukishima proper blocking techniques and starts calling him by the nickname "Tsukki," despite Tsukishima's annoyance. Kuroo is proud of Tsukishima's progress, while Tsukishima acknowledges Kuroo as a mentor figure and volleyball rival.

Common Tropes in Fanworks

  • Futurefic and College AUs are fairly common settings for Kurotsukki fanworks.
    • Since this is one of the most popular ships between characters on different teams in high school, these types of fics are an easy way to bring Kuroo and Tsukishima into the same space for an extended period of time.
  • Fics exploring a potential long distance relationship between the two characters are also popular.
  • Canon Compliant Kurotsukki fic can be considered Rivals to Lovers.
