- Harustache - Haru and his mustache
Haru did not have any relationships in canon, but he did have one in a spinoff short.
In the non-canon spinoff "School Time Shipping," Haru ended up with Ty Lee. He was initially pursuing Katara but she rejected him. Katara told Haru that he was too sensitive for him and had already decided to go to the dance with the Blue Spirit. Ty Lee then arrived and told Haru that she likes sensitive guys. Haru then decided to go to the dance with Ty Lee and she tackled him while kissing him on the cheek.
Haru has a decent amount of popularity in the Avatar fandom. He is made fun of for the mustache that he grew in Book Three: Fire. Some fans found it to be ugly while others thought it was hilarious. The mustache resulted in a meme and even a joke in Avatar Abridged. Many joked that the mustache had a mind of its own and was powerful enough to defeat the Fire Lord. Haru is sometimes shipped with his mustache as a joke but many ship him with either Toph or Ty Lee in order to have them paired with someone. Some also ship Haru with Katara and feel that he may have had a crush on her.
- Haru was portrayed as a nameless six year-old boy in the film adaptation.
