So pick your favorite and start voting! Enjoy (:

The Top TenXW

1USUK- Axis Powers Hetalia

USUK is the best pairing I've ever seen. Long time ago, I think that history is boring and it's not worth studying. You know, but thanks to Axis Power Hetalia, I gain interest in history, and thanks to the pairing "USUK" I'm now in love deeply with this paring. They are just... something is just special about them. There is a very touching doujinshi call "From a new world with love" It's a real fact history doujinshi (USUK) it's very touching, I cried. I just love USUK. They belongs to each other, and without each other, they will be nothing!

I have liked many, many, many yaoi pairings throught my years of being a fan, but this couple has had the biggest impact! Not to mention it makes listening to WWII lectures in history class a little less boring!

They are a perfect couple in my eyes, and probably one of the best I've seen yet. I have yet to run out of ideas for fan-fiction involving these too, and the range of what they have been through allows for so many takes on stories.

Not to mention they are a ' sexy couple. o. ~

Because of this pairing, now I like yaoi XD

They are so hot!

2Sasuke Uchiha & Naruto Uzumaki - Naruto

Sexy it's like they are meant for each other in a gay yaoi way so hot!
Sasunaru is the most role played and placed together when most other yoai couple parings and that the mange even says the it's a lovetriangle between squad 7 because sakura loves sasuke, sasUKE love naruto. And naruto loves sakura people and also I believe that naruto and SasUKE are ment to be together. Just thing about it and read the mangas description and you will see what I'm talking about but the kiss in the manga and anime totally gave them the yaoi title. And also that sasuke didn't kill naruto also gave then a love show but I believe narutos going to forget Sakura and move or run right into sasuke's arms and live A loving yaoi life and Sakura gets lee or ino who knows I only think about the relationship between naruto and sasuke so just think about what I said and tell it doesn't sound like they where meant to be together from the beginning.

They are the best couple. It's not because they look good together (they do though), but it actually makes sense for them to be together. They both hold a big influence on each other. Naruto has dedicated himself to save sasuke above all else and is even willing to sacrifice his life alongside him as long as sasuke is free from his anguish. Sasuke has the hardest time refusing to acknowledge that naruto means anything to him but in the end he's the only one able to rile him up and have a change in his character. Even Itachi admits that the only one that can save/change sasuke is naruto. Sasuke has always rejected any girl who confessed to him and has even gone so far as to killing them just to have fun or because of they're a burden. Naruto has gotten two girls to confess to him and he has told one that he hates bull, and he hasn't even bother to acknowledge the other one. Naruto is always thinking of sasuke even while he's trying to save the rest of the world. Sasuke is shocked that ...more

Sasuke and Naruto is hands down the best couple out there. The dynamic of their relationship is like no other I've seen. It's true that Naruto seems to be more obsessed with Sasuke but I feel like Sasuke does have a reserved spot in his heart for Naruto as well. The way Kishimoto tells the story of similar life styles and how making certain decisions can change a person entirely. They complete each other in ways that none of the other characters can even compare. Naruto is the only one who can stand up to Sasuke and affect his emotions the way he does. Sasuke doesn't want to admit it but I bet he feels happy that Naruto hasn't given up on him. He is baffled that Naruto would spend so much of his time chasing after him but because of that, his trust and faith in Naruto doesn't disappear. He knows that everyone else out there has given up on him except Naruto. Naruto loves Sasuke to an extent that surpasses friendship. I mean, I love my friends to death but if they went evil, killed ...more

Even though they are not really a couple (stupid sakura and hinata) I think the relationship they have is off the charts!

3Shizuo & Izaya - Durarara

At first, when I was about 15 episode I thought "How people can see them together?! They really hate each other, they just can't be together! " But now I'm just crazy about them. My favourite yaoi couple for ever!

When I first heard of this pairing, I became a little curious and started watching the anime. I was anticipating and waiting for the episode where they interact, so when I was on episode 2 (I believe it was) I laughed at how Shizuo threw a vending machine at Izaya and that was the first (I think) that he didn't dodge a throwing object at him until later on in the episodes. As it goes on, I became obsessed with the two because of the way Shizuo was so focused on killing Izaya that it came to a point where he can even smell him! I was even cheering and praising at Erika for pairing them up, despite them hating each other. I think my obsession peaked up when I came to the last episode where Shizuo was really intent on killing Izaya that he made a ruckus to the city because of the signs and vehicles. I really love the chemistry between these two and I always think that they're expressing their love for each other through hate to the extent where they want to kill each other. I'm a sucker ...more

This love/hate relationship is so canon, it's not even funny. They're perfect for each other! With all their fights and comments about each other, how can people not see how they are obvious together and meant-to-be?

Their so lovely together

4Sebastian & Ciel - Kuroshitsuji

So difficult to choose! >. < But I gotta say, Sebastian and Ciel. I love them to death. I love their dark, twisted relationship and I think it is incredibly cute how Ciel can't seem to live without Sebastian. I really think Sebastian cares for Ciel as well, in his own way.

Well the obviously shounen-ai hints are in the manga XD though it might ever officially be shounen ai. However the reader can definitely feel a connection between the two as more than master and servant. What I love about their relationship is that there's no romance going on but you can feel that they do care for each other. Of course Sebastian likes to see Ciel being frustrated or hurt but I think the only reason is that he likes seeing his master react and the same with Ciel.

I have just recently started watching Kuro, and I can say with 100% accuracy that Sebastian and Ciel have stolen my heart. I don't know when I started shipping them together, maybe around episode 2? But then Liz came in and well, let's just say I was part of the mob of people telling Ciel to just slap her! Elizabeth reminds me of Risa Harada from DNAngel, there's just something about her that makes me just... ugh. Now, I'm not trying to bash her or anything, but I just can't stand the thought of Ciel ending up with Liz or anyone else! I would rather have him paired up with no one. So, I know I've started rambling, but in conclusion: SebaCiel is my drug. I can't have a single moment where it's not somewhere in my mind.

I LOVE THIS SHIP SO, SO MUCH! One could easily tell that Sebastian does care deeply for Ciel, and that he isn't just after his soul. It's also revealed that the thing Ciel treasures the most that is dead or is "not from this world" is SEBASTIAN (seeing as he's a demon).

5Germany & Italy - Hetalia

This is perhaps one of the most popular pairings in the fandom (besides USUK). I'm not sure why I like it more than USUK, but it just seems to be smoother than USUK's relationship. Italy can be a little annoying, along with America, and Germany and England are both so easy to set off. But if you think about it, Italy and Germany have so many canon moments that it's ridiculous. England and America have some, sure, but I've seen more evidence of FrUK than I have of USUK. GerIta has the most, however. Italy has asked Germany to kiss him, which he did, and Germany has said "Ich liebe dich, " which translates to "I love you" in English. They're constantly together, no matter how much Germany may want to kick Italy out (though that was mostly done when they first met).

Overall, it's canon. Get over it USUK shippers.

This really deserves to be Number 1, not Number 9. But then again, that's just my opinion.

Who can resist the sweetness of the smexy German? I've adored this pairing since I saw Hetalia, though I do love AkuRoku the most, this one is definitely second

Well, after the Bon San Valentino chapter, we know that Germany likes Italy. Nothing is more adorable than a serious German getting jealous over a clueless Italy's flirting.

They're practically canon and I love their chemistry.

6Usagi & Misaki - Junjou Romantica

There are many interesting couples and it is hard to choose who is best because storylines are sometimes really different. However, choosing this couple, it can never go wrong.

They always boost up my mood, very funny and lovable couple.

Out of all yaois I've seen, I LOVE this couple more than others! No matter what this will always be the best in my book and others

Of course I mean they make the cutest couple ever

7Nezumi & Shion - No.6

These two are amazing! Now I already love the whole sweet uke and badass seme, but these two take it to the next level. This isn't the simple seme with a bad past sees light through a sweet uke. They balance each other out! Not only is Shion showing Nezumi light, but it's also Nezumi that's showing Shion just how cruel the world can be. However, Nezumi does it in a way that won't completely break Shion. Not only that, but it's not just a fact of having them save each other; it's simply the fact that the two just work together well. I just see them and I can already see a married couple! They fight and argue, but they also care about each other more than anyone else. I nearly died on the scene when Nezumi told Shion never to give him a goodbye kiss again, and I was out when Shion tried to kill that guy for Nezumi. I also just love how when Shion begins to lose who he is Nezumi is desperate to save him. All in all, the two are not only adorable and perfect together, but they're always ...more

I love this pairing. I almost voted for others but then I saw this. They're love is so adorable since Shion is so pure and fragile yet Nezumi is so cold and harsh without meaning. Dispite that fact that Nezumi has hurt Shion so much Shion just smiles and forgives him, while Nezumi thinks he's no good for him and is scared to love him back. Then there's the fact that there love is doomed, it's like Romeo and Juliet. Nezumi wants to destroy No. 6 and Shion wants to save it. Dispite knowing, Shion can't bring himself to leave Nezumi because he loves him too much. Then there's the scene that dooms their love the most when Nezumi leaves Shion for good. I tear up when I think about them. It's bittersweet and you can't let go.

There's something so captivating by this ship. It was displayed so naturally and then slowly grew into the beauty I see it as. Everything, from the cute little dance to the goodbye kiss, just seemed so natural and realistic. In just 11 episodes, it has managed to mesmerize me with its brilliance. Nezumi and Shion act like a couple already they share the same bed, argue, feed each other, and care for one another in their own different ways. They were complete opposites kuro-shiro appearance, one's life was filled with privilege, the other's was tainted with loss. But they're more than just your typical badass seme - naive uke combo, they balanced each other out in such a way, that they affected each other. Shion opened Nezumi's eyes with his resolve to find a compromise, and slowly destroying Nezumi's idea of "black and white." Nezumi showed Shion just how cruel the world could be. Shion's change was obvious when he took drastic measures to protect Nezumi by shooting to kill ...more

This needs way more love! It's an undeniably sweet pairing, and it made me cry several times!

8Cain & Abel - Starfighter

Has to be 1. Everything in their relationship blows everything off. Badass Cain and an adorable Abel. With competition going into their relationship, it makes the challenges tastier. There is quite an opposites quality in them. This is what makes them CLICK. SO. MUCH! Cain & Abel all the way.

The epic pairing from Hamletmachine's original comic, Starfighter. Not the typical yaoi couple! What's Cain up to? Is Abel going to be able to weather the storm well? - dazza1008

Totally unique~ I haven't almost ever seen a couple quite as interesting! It's absolutely wonderful that this had a plot as well, as it's pretty east to notice that a lot of yaoi's tend to forget to involve anything more than the 'love'...

Best. Haven't read all of it but it's still awesome.

9Light Yagami & L - Deathnote

While most people like to mention the handcuffs, I'll just say that the only reason L ended up dying was, basically, because he let Raito be his death. If he were not in love with him, he wouldn't have done that; Raito can also be seen as obsessing over L, even and especially after he's dead. He says that Near is below L, even when Near has proven himself to be a worthy opponent, and did end up winning. Obviously he places L on a higher pedestal than anyone else.

they are so cute and I considered L the more feminine on plus U have to admit that the scene where L dried lights feet was the best anime yaoi scene in the history of yaoi

This- yes! How can someone not see it? Seriously l says that lights his only friend and that shows that he cares for him! As for light he was surprised when he thought how easily l was going to be killed (before he lost his memory) it was like he was seeing how strong he was he wanted l to be different than the others he had killed and l was! Besides, the two were handcuffed together! Always together for more than a month right? And the scene from when l was wiping lights foot-

This is the best ship...both can be uke or seme

10Lelouch & Suzaku - Code Geass

I have many reasons to call this pairing my favorite. For one, the anime is one of the best I have ever seen. Lelouch is such a deeply emotional and complex character that clashes very well with Suzaku's own turbulence and their equally clashing views on how to handle situations make character development some of the best I've ever seen. Two, they both know they love each other dearly no matter what happens and it's proved once Lelouch makes his plans for Zero Requiem and Suzaku goes along with it to make the world a better place. And lastly, they are adorable together. Lelouch is the serious one with all the beauty and charisma of a true prince while Suzaku is loyal and devoted to him. (At least in the end. )

Their relationship is such an awkward one; with Lelouch being Zero and Suzaku wanting to kill Zero.

Definitely worth watching Code Geass for

This anime broke my heart couple of times, being your regular otaku I watched a lot of anime, I can totally say that this anime is extremely well made; from a forever twisting plot to a certain glasses wearing school girl humping a table. The ship Suzalulu is like a inferno compared most of the other ships in the anime world, Lelouch's personality is naturally deceptive while Suzaku is almost the complete opposite, always rushing into battles hardly ever worried for his life, they balance each other perfectly. Plus, in the end even after so much conflict Suzaku decided to continue following Lelouch's so they can create a perfect world, Lelouch trusting his life to Suzaku, all of that just shows no matter what happens they'll always get back together in this cruel world.

P.S. If you haven't already seen this anime yet, I highly recommend it, it is just too irresistible for me.

One's strength is another's weakness. At first, they opposed each other and clashed brilliantly. Suzaku's athleticism was Lelouch's downfall. Lelouch's intelligence was Suzaku's bane.

Only together did they bring the world to its knees.

The Contenders

11Sanji & Zoro - One Piece

If they aren't made for each other, I think the very foundation on which love is built would crumble. What they have defies all forms of conventional love, they share something very profound, something that's very very close to love and at the same time, is a million light years away from it. The amount of trust that the two share implicitly is something that can't be expressed in words. They claim to dislike each other and always find a way to pick a fight, but when times are hard, the person that each of them rely on the most, is the other. There's plenty canon proof for that. On top of that, they each have such distinctive qualities that bring about a uniqueness to the pair; Sanji with his kindness that's hidden within insults, curly eyebrows, cooking, lady-worship, black-leg style, double-breasted black suit, cigarettes, self-sacrificial attitude when things take a turn for the worse, and Zoro with his boundless determination, green hair, three swords, three earrings, trademark ...more

It's never a natural One Piece episode if these two don't fight or hurl insults at each other. They can't help but be focused on each other, making them probably the most popular pairing in the series (at least, fan-verse). Also, you might want to check out the Zoro's sacrifice episode. If you haven't shipped them yet, that episode will convert you.

They are so meant for each other. They always fight but they know that they can always count on one another in an important battle. They may not appear to get along but that is because the two of them are extremely stubborn and have difficulties expressing their feelings a lot of the time.

This is one of the best examples of sexual tension out there as they have almost kisses twice!

Waiting for the real thing to happen!

12Takano & Ritsu Onodera - Sekaiichi Hatsukoi

One of the best yaoi out there and its really cute!

I love how their heartbreak is real and how they're showing how it affected them... And now that they're falling in love with each other all over again (if they ever stopped loving), it's a lot more exciting!

I just love their love story. And it's funny too -in every way-. But definitely, cute and really heartwarming. I've never been in love, but this manga made me understand what true love is -and what it should be- and that it's just beautiful.

Takano is damn sexy and Ritsu is super adorable. And they love each other so much. They don't show their love by words but by actions

13Tamaki Souh & Kyoya Ootori - Ouran Highschool Host Club

Just... Yes. Have you ever noticed that, without Haruhi, the Host Club is a complete yaoi cycle? Kaoru and Hikaru, Mori and Hani, and... Tamaki and Kyoya. It's obvious! Though, I prefer Kyoya with Nekozawa (/shot), I also adore this pair.

While I wasn't originally into this paring, a friend of mine introduced me to it and I realized how adorable they were. Tamaki's enthusiasm and charm really balances out Kyoya's intelligence and aloof manner, and it's nice to watch them interact with one another.

This pairing is so cute! Tamaki's ridiculous, quirky actions matched with Kyouya's cold albeit laid-back nature is the sort of thing I look for in my yaoi couples. It's probably the only one where I would have Tamaki's personality be the dominate one. KyoTama all the way~

The two sexiest characters in the whole show and their so perfect together!

14Elliot & Leo - Pandora Hearts

They're two parts of a whole, and when one lost the other part he was embellished in complete and utter sorrows and emptiness. These two are meant no matter what way you see it. They see each other as equals. They fight with each other strongly, but fight for each other with more strength. They can understand each other with only a bat of an eyelash. And, most importantly, they complete one another. Without the one, the other falls to pieces. And that's exactly what happened to Leo. This couple always brings me to tears, and I wish they had just been together. But eventually they will meet again. After all, they need each other.

Man, if anyone has read the newest Pandora Hearts chapters (57 to 60) you should see why this couple is not only oh so cute but oh so tragic as well D:

Elliot is one of the most adorable and pitiful characters I have ever come across while Leo is a very interesting character himself. (You also have to feel bad for him after recent events- I mean come on, his screaming drilled a hole in my heart ;A;

Although I wouldn't call myself a yaoi fangirl, I've got my fair share of boy's love ships. Elliot x Leo, however, is something totally different. The bond that these two share is so deep and meaningful that you even think about the fact that they're both male. They're soulmates. Constantly depicted as two parts of one whole, being complete when they meet, falling apart when they're separated... The love Elliot and Leo share ( because it IS love, romantic or otherwise ) is undeniable.

I think Pandora Hearts is an absolutely amazing manga but it's strongest point are it's characters and their relationships, these two being a prime example. And without them being the protagonists, too! I know for a fact that this couple is staying with me for long, long time because it's so powerful. Few things have made me cry as much as these two and honestly, be prepared to cry your heart out with their story.

I love this pairing!

16Kotestsu Kaburagi & Barnaby Brooks Jr. - Tiger & Bunny

They deserve a better place than #42. Believe me I've read fanfics/doujinshis for 21 of the couples above and know some other ones too, but this one is by far the best I can say. Kotetsu and Barnaby cares deeply for each other and you can really tell from watching the anime. Their interaction in the last few episodes are pretty much what people who are in love would say and do to each other. Barnaby needs Kotetsu as much as Kotetsu needs him. They make a great couple and possibly a great family with Kaede as the daughter too. And they don't have creepy/unhealthy relationships where someone gets abused or sexually harassed or 'hate' each other so much they must be in love etc.

Don't get me wrong, some of the above pairings are my OTP too, but to say that they are the greatest... No I can't say they are because of the above reason. Although I must say JuubeixKazuki is great too. - dead_chivalry

THIS NEEDS TO BE HIGHER ON THE LIST! I'm so into this pairing I'm not even kidding. It's also nearly canon how they love one another and that their relationship is so far deeper than simple friends. This one is a true love to be sure. I mean, Barnaby princess carries Kotetsu three times in the anime! Friends usually don't do that. Also, the creator of Tiger & Bunny was asked about their 'relationship' and he said that they set it up so you can either take it that they have a heavy bromance, or they are "gay for each other." Actual permission. Sweet.

Mother of god this deserves such a higher place in the world. It's a magnificent pairing that stems from a mutual love for saving people and Kotetsu's nosiness. Oh Tiger and Bunny, why aren't you cannon. I would pay for one episode of cannon yaoi. I would pay so... So much.

17Naruto & Gaara - Naruto

My favorite Naruto shipping. It takes only one person to change another's life forever, and in this case, it's for the better. They understand each other better than anyone else could. Not that many have tried when they were growing up. I can see Naruto getting Gaara to loosen up and Gaara teaching Naruto the finer point of tactics...

I've always liked this shipping because to me, it has always been the most sweet and romantic. Naruto meets Gaara and changes his outlook on the world which makes him become more open. To me, they have a special bond incomparable to any of their other friendships.

Oh, come on guys this is real obvious with the two. Naruto and Gaara are destined for each other is real clear. I mean they both have a Fox spirit in themselves and both are hated by the people (not all however). And I think Naruto is a really cool seme and Gaara a Sweet Uke. Also, I think the couple is much better as SasukexNaruto. And really great is Naruto as a seme.

My number one too shipping

18Ichigo & Hitsugaya - Bleach

MY Bleach OTP. They complement each other personality-wise and fighting style. It's like they're made for each other. Not to mention, they understand each other as far as wanting to protect those they care about and having lost someone important in their lives. I wish there are more fan fiction with this couple.

Some people just need to try and read a one shot about them. Its cute!

I just love this couple so much! Especially how Toshiro is always blushing and said the opposite thing of what he wanted to say! And there is really good fanfic called Empathy that got me hooked with this couple, like, forever.

All I got to say to this awesome paring is that they are made for each other

19Spain & Romano - Axis Powers Hetalia

You gotta love this cheerful, passionate former conquistador and his troubled but cute Italian who was once his henchman. For all the unresolved sexual tension and 'will they won't they' moments from the anime and mangas, one can't help but wonder when will they admit their feelings and marry each other already! - dead_chivalry

These two are a match made in heaven! I say that this deserves to be at the top 10 as well!

Both their personalities complements each other making their relationship a beautiful harmony. Both are passionate, both are agricultural and had pasts that they could not escape, like Spain's conquistador days and Romano's Mafia days. Spain would always be there to protect Romano and Romano would always find a way to help Spain. True, they were pictured as either father-son or brother relationship, but anyone could see that the feelings are more deeper than that. They understand each other and knows how to push their buttons.

Spamano is just sweet, adorable, passionate, and maybe a bit dark...but it makes their relationship even more worth-while!

How can anyone not love these two? Spain is the only one who can can calm Romano down and is the only male Romano doesn't scream at. Not only that but their mutual love of tomatos and Spain's utter adoration of Romano makes them perfect.

Romano and Spain, are one of the cutest couples out there
