Fandom

Tropes and themes

  • The characters in Tsukishima's name mean moon, island, and firefly, and both canon and fanworks often compare Tsukishima to the moon in various ways.
  • He is a skilled middle blocker and, in combination with Yamaguchi, is referred to as Karasuno's shield.
  • He is often depicted with dinosaur plushies or toys as he has dinosaur models on the shelves in his room in canon.
  • Strawberries are a common visual motif in fanart because Tsukishima's favorite food is strawberry shortcake.

Pairings

Tsukishima is often shipped with his best friend Yamaguchi Tadashi, other members of the Karasuno team, or rival middle blocker Kuroo Tetsurou. Other Tsukishima ships are less common. He is also often included in polyship works.

Fanworks

  • Moonrise, a Tsukishima-centric zine
