Top Ten Naruto Couples
We all knew from the very beginning of the show this was a perfect couple and they were a perfect couple. They got married, had a son that they wish they didn't have, they just fit.
I liked this pairing more in Naruto than Naruto Shippuden.
In Naruto, he motivates Hinata to move forward and start fighting for herself more; and she cares greatly for him, helping him out and being by his side. During the OG series, I was rooting for Hinata.
But in Shippuden, I really felt like the relationship became stale. Naruto had so many other things going on in his life (primarily chasing after Sasuke) and had goals, aspirations and dreams.
But what about Hinata? All I saw was her pining over Naruto. Yes, she had become much more strong and confident; but at the same time I felt like her character was reduced simply to 'LOVES NARUTO'.
This in my opinion, is a great shame. I would've preferred if she was an equal standing by Naruto's side, but instead she is chasing desperately after him; even using perilous situations as a means to get closer to him.
Hinata... You don't need to suffer this much for the guy you love. You can find someone who'll ...more
Throughout his life, all Naruto wanted was acknowledgment: to be seen for who he is. No one did. Not even iruka. All viewed him as a monster or an obnoxious brat. There was one however, who didn't see him that way, & without doing a thing besides be himself. She saw how innerly strong with how he never got pushed down no matter how he gets pushed back or fails. He saw him get mistreated, & found strength for herself thanks to him. While when she was younger she didn't have the strength or courage to help him, later on she showed him
kindness without anything he needed to do on his have by attempting to help him in the test, giving him medicine, giving him confidence to fight her cousin, & then jumping in to protect him the best she could! And Naruto seemed happy in on her presence & quickly was impressed by her will she gained from him. He was also thankful to have her on his side always & was very concerned about her happiness & safety! & that is why naruhina is #1!
Here's to the mindless couple of a stalker and her crush.
One of the main reasons Neji was killed off was to play cupid for Naruto and Hinata, and even that didn't work out and they had to make a different movie for it. There is still ZERO chemistry between them and Naruto completely ignores Hinata even after her confession. Because the audience of Naruto in the west adore Hinata and the canon couple of NaruHina, they had to appease them in some way obviously, as they look down upon cousins. The original couple is Hinata and Neji, as implied in the interview by Kishi and the enormous references in Rock Lee's Springtime of Youth. The ending of Naruto was also completely fan based, just to make majority of the fans happy. Blergh.
Hinata should have ended up Neji and Naruto and Sasuke are effing canon.
We all knew Sasuke and Naruto were the best couple In Naruto. In the beginning they were rivals but as the series progressed they became best friends and I would just love them as a couple
Naruto and Sasuke had more ship moments. Naruto and Hinata's love was cute but lacked communication in the beginning. Sakura just seemed like some persistent fan girl. She chased and chased him. She did not bring Sasuke back. Naruto fought to go get that boy. If he did the thing that his brother did to him, wouldn't that put her in a sister relationship? If it had been Naruto, people would say it was. The girls really have an unrealistic love. The only real thing I see is the guys marrying them just for their abilities to make children and the fact homosexuality isn't accept. They both don't seem to be truly in love with their wives.
Naruto went through years of hell for Sasuke. He could have easily given up, but no, he kept at it. He tried to save Sasuke. Hinata did squat. She watched Naruto suffer, and did nothing. A crush is someone you like, but you would hesitate to give your life for them. If Hinata truly loved him, then her shyness wouldn't matter, because it would hurt too much to watch him suffer. In the Pain arc, she ran out to save him, but he had specifically told people to stay out. Knowing Naruto, he would have gotten out of the situation, if Hinata hadn't gone in. It was a suicide mission, and she knew it. Hinata should have stayed back, and helped the people around her, instead of worrying so much about "her" Naruto-kun. Hinata going in just meant one more casualty, because if Naruto really was going to die, then the whole village is doomed, and there's nothing she can do to stop that. Naruto fights for Sasuke, but he stays out when he should stay out.
So imagine a story about a girl who is in love with this guy and chases him around the world to find him and bring him home to her. If it was a girl and a guy everyone would automatically go for it. But because Naruto is a man going after Sasuke, another man, the whole thing is platonic and just friends, no homo. That doesn't make sense. Naruto is literally willing to give up his dream of becoming hokage because Sasuke isn't there. He says that if he can't even bring him back that he could never be hokage. Then there's the fact that the last Naruto movie was the equivalent of a bad fanfiction in that all of a sudden Naruto was like "Oh yeah I love you" and everyone just went with it. NO! The entire show built on Sasuke and Naruto's relationship. It is sad that just because it's homosexual that it didn't happen.
The best and the most interesting pairing, it's the type where you need to look at little details to understand the whole picture. Relationships don't always start full of sunshine and rainbows, they had hard pasts before becoming couple unlike other ones where they make it so simple and nothing wrong types which is not realistic. I like when there's a character with deeply troubled past and then there's someone who wants to help him, those types always have hard time at the beginning but the guy changed for the better now, no matter how much people hate them, they have both moved on and are happy, only the haters can't move on or understand them sadly. Its not a pairing which is easy to understand, those who have had difficulties in the past and more rational thinking people tend to understand more
Ok I just feel bad for this ship, at one point pt.1 everyone wanted it to happen so bad there was so much development but it all went down hill at shippuden, after they both tried to kill each other sakura suddenly reveals that she still likes sasuke. If only it was written better for example making sasuke have a flashback after he knocked out Sakura and make him remember the death of his clan and make him cry, that stuff makes the fans go crazy! But no you just make him smile which I guess is ok? But it could've been better at over times for example again, making Karin and other dude I don't care about remind him of team 7 and make him remember the times they had but no! You just see a plain old boring team of one good character (sasuke) and the rest characters that nobody really cares about, That's all I say.
...WHY!? This couple makes no sense. In the first part 1 they made more sense (even then there wasn't much besides Sakura's pre-teen obsession like he was an Emo Justin Bieber) but come part 2 there was nothing. Literally, anytime they were on screen together he was either ignoring her, insulting her or attacking her. They are not a healthy couple from either perspective. From Sasuke's he has this girl that he hasn't shown much romantic interest because he had only one thing important to him. She's been obsessed with him since they were pre-teens for only shallow reasons and excepts something more from him when he literally showed nothing towards her and there is no reason for her to lovehim. Sakura's part she hasbeen chasing this boy who has been emotionally and physically distant from her for years and when she's with him, he shows that he couldn't care less if she lives or not. How is this healthy? How is this romantic? Why because he gives one apology after all the stuff he put ...more
Sakura's love for Sasuke was geniune and selfless. All she wished was for him to be happy and she wanted to be a part of his life to make him happy. After she saw him suffer in part I, the way she saw Sasuke changed. He was no longer the handsome, cool Uchiha who was perfect at everything. She saw his flaws, she saw him suffer, she saw him going deep into the darkness so she wanted to be with him and get him out of it. This was proved right for Sakura when the Cursed Mark receded when she hugged him. But she still couldn't bring him back when he was about to leave for the village. Sasuke actually liked Sakura from the beginning if you pay attention. Sakura is the only girl Sasuke lets hug and remains calm. He tries to kill Sakura only because he was on the path of darkness. He did the same for Naruto. Sasuke poked Sakura's forehead like Itachi used to do to him. For him, it's an ultimate method of showing feelings. Sasusaku is canon already because it makes complete sense and Sarada ...more
This should be Top1 really. I love them, they're the most kawaii and makes the most sense!
Kushina loves Minato and so does he. According to Kushina, Minato was the only one(aside from Naruto later on) commending her red hair(if I was there I'd have told her that I want red hair like hers too! ) And he was her knight in shining armor. Since then she cared about her hair and became the most beautiful female of Naruto series. And about Minato, he's cool. He's so cool, handsome and funny he should've been alive! Both of them balance each other out. I loved how Kushina thanked Minato(both times when he got selected for 4th hokage when she was also the one wanting to be a hokage, and other when they both were dying)
It was so cute.
They (Kushina) gave birth to Naruto. They gave him good advice in they're last moments, and still had a huge impact in the series in the short screen-time they had.
How is this no higher? These are Naruto parents. when I realized they never got to live with there son and see him grow up I almost cried. but if my mom realized I was crying because of naruto I'd be banned from watching anime!
Even though we didn't see this ship too much, all the scenes were so ADORABLE. Not just that, but Minato was always nice to Kushina and in general it is an amazing ship.
I don't know if it is just because I've never read the manga, but I've never seen these two together. Sure they spent time together but they were teammates. I feel like Neji and Tenten were more like friends and teammates.. The only solid evidence for this shipping is in the tsukuyomi dream she had, and that was AFTER Neji died. I don't know for sure though cause Tenten didn't get enough screen time, and what little she had honestly told us she could secretly love ANY character in the Naruto. But I do think tenten had so much potential as a character and I am sad that her only strong moments were in filler episodes.
In my opinion I think Neji and Tenten are the CUTEST couple in Naruto. There always together. Wherever you turn you always find them next to each other. Tenten respects Neji a lot. When Neji was a jerk and always brought people down he didn't bring Tenten dreams down when she said she wanted to become like the Legendary Sannin, Tsundae. When Neji would always say women aren't as strong as men shonobi Tenten would always tell him he was wrong and he wouldn't fight back after she told him. I also don't think Hinata and Neji are a couple. Why? CAUSE THERE COUSINS that's WHY! ITS DISGUSTING. I also think Lee and Tenten aren't a couple because there like brother and sister. But Naruto and Tenten are not a couple. Just no. I also think Tenten deserves more screen time. She barely gets attention!
I'm going to give great points on both characters. Tenten is one of my favorite female characters. I absolutly hate Sakura, always puching Naruto and fawning over Sasuke and crying and being useless. Tenten DOES something. Tenten and Rock Lee...hmm. I think Lee is great, but him with Tenten? No. They're friends. Neji is crazy powerful, and it's terrifying watching him fight. With his eyeball thingy it's like he's attaching your organs (barf). Scary. But he lighted up, and if he didn't die, their relationship would've blossomed.
Cute couple, too bad Neji died. Tenten always looked up to him, but never did any fangirlish stuff. A person like Tenten who talked to Neji like any other comrade as a close friend and with much respect, plus her determined, compassionate, and relaxed demeanor would've done someone like Neji, who has a more monotone personality some good. * sigh * A cool couple with so much potential gone, now only being held up by it's fandom.
This ship is pretty much undeniable. The chemistry was there from the very beginning. Temari, in my opinion one of the few truly bad-ass female characters (Why didn't she get more screen time! ) didn't fawn over or chase Shikamaru relentlessly when he so obviously rejected her (No offense SakuSasu), or dated him as a second-option (Looking at you, Ino, and yes, I do mean to offend you), and there relationship wasn't overly cliche, and quite frankly, it just fit. Of all the ships in this show, this one was done the best, since it was implied from the beginning. The sarcastic remarks, the mutual respect, everything is done so well in this ship. I only wish they got more screen time.
Shikatema is way better than the other ships. First of all, Naruhina and Sasusaku ( although I ship them) are just about the girls wanting to get the guy ever since they were little, and the guy not really accepting their feelings until way after. They're also a bit forced. Saino had too little moments, and to the person who said that there was no love triangle, who said there needed to be one in the first place for them to be with each other? Even though there was no love triangle or whatever, there's still a lot of chemistry between them and Temari obviously loves Shikamaru in Boruto, even though she ''abuses him''. Heck, she even blushed when he said he wanted to eat dinner with his family once in a while. Ok I'm done with my rant, but Shikatema is life and Shikaino sucks, Ino belongs with Sai anyways.
These two are the only couple that made proper sense. They are like made for each other. Their relationship is so mutual and they also have really good chemistry. Another good thing is that the two of them are very good strategists and they can understand each other's ideas very well. Shikamaru hidden clearly brings out how well the couple are matched. They are AWESOME!
They're the only couple that actually make sense. Naruto never noticed hinata until later on, sakura was in a abusive relationship with sasuke ( he almost killer her twice or more times), karui never once talked to choji in the manga or anime, sai and ino only talked a couple times( I guess theirs make alittle sense). Shikamaru and temari are the only pairing that you can tell would end up together.
I liked the mature nature of their relationship. It's subtle but there are scenes in which their care for each other is apparent.
It's a shame what happened, I would've loved to learn more about these two!
It's hilarious watching Asuma try to denied he loves Kurenai to his students.
Well this was first canon relationship we saw in naruto. Even they don't get much screentime they are so czte and worth watching. Specially trough asumas death we seen so much feeling between them it just made me cry.
They seem made for each other! Plus they're cute together!
Sumire x boruto I really like this ship I know everyone wants boruto x Sarada but for me borusumi is better They're so beautiful so cute l love them I want Boruto Sumire to get married.
Boruto deserves someone good, who likes him, who treats him well. Sumire is like that. She always treated him well and trusted him, even if he was a mess. They have everything to be a good couple. The Sumire arch created a great feeling and a great connection between them. I hope you stay together!
I would like them to be together... They are cool!
They seem cute together
Sasuke belongs to Naruto, Sakura is an exception for Sasuke, so the ones left are Sai and Ino. That's why I ship them, but honestly, they are just the perfect match!
They are really cute together!
They get married!
I've always thought this one was really cool, mostly because Hanabi is the younger sister of Hinata and Konohamaru is (some what) the younger brother of Naruto. So it makes a lot of sense that they'd end up together.
He truly loved Rin to the point Obito awakened his Mangekyo Sharingan and evolved along with the wielder when he witnessed her death. He's ready to sacrifice his happiness just to keep her happy even if it means letting her go. But it isn't the case, I mean given the chance she survived maybe Bakashi would fall for her but it didn't happen. So that pairing wasn't meant to be because she died. And I suppose she understood what it means to be friendzoned too so that experience humbled her in the process and learnt to appreciate the one who is selfless enough to care about her well-being. I think it's true love, not someone who needs to be coaxed on something just to learn to value that person til it's too late.
Love is all about forgiveness which happened to this canon pairing. Rin watching Obito in the afterlife made her realize she was just morally wrong how she treated him in Kannabi bridge mission. She must've felt bad knowing she was selfish for being petty over childhood crush. In her heart, she knows it was Obito she dearly cared about most. As opposed by the fact he's still friendzoned in the afterlife but that's not the case. She already knows that he loved her after Kakashi told her and was confused at the time. Who knows if it's really reciprocated at the actual scene when she welcomed him in afterlife. Afterall she was the one whom he had connection with and is his true soulmate. Glad Kishi made them being together in the canon! It cemented the impression they were meant to be together.
Couldn't be happier knowing that these two ended up together in the afterlife! Rin finally realized Kakashi never wanted her therefore REJECTED her. So glad she finally came to terms with that and nowhere as being like Sakura who gets to chased someone who finds her annoying. It was pure toxicity couple. Rin and Obito's relationship differs to the SasuSaku ship as the girl who get the guy who truly loved her in the end. So happy Kishi get them together in the afterlife.
Wow! I voted this pairing because so far Kakashi's been an ass abandoning her while Obito make it to the extreme losing his very life saving her. He even sacrifice a part of himself for Rin's happiness even it means losing her. If it isn't true love then I don't know what that is. Turned out were they reunited in the afterlife!
This is my favorite ship in Naruto! Their chemistry is really cute, and I feel like they would be really good friends if they interacted more in the manga/show. I love the ship art and fanfic, and the prospect of them being a couple is super cute! I love this ship!
OMG! I'm like, the BIGGEST FAN of this pairing! No.1 yaoi pairing from Naruto is SasuNaru, but no.2 is this one! Kakashi x Iruka's chemistry was another reason why I ever decided to watch Naruto anime. I honestly love this pairing!
The arc in which Kakashi and Iruka argued over whether Team 7 should participate in the Chunin Exam or not gave me chills.
These two bond so well over the team, they're like Team 7's parents!
It'd be such a cool pairing...
This is an amazing pairing. They should be higher on the list.
Love his so much
OH MY LORD YES- I'm OBSESSED with this ship! The two fellas have had some great times together, the chuunin exams, when Naruto and Hinata got married- there are way more that I don't have time to explain, but these two have a very well balanced relationship. I love how they're polar opposites, but that makes them such a great pair.
Hypothetically they are good for each other. There may be a lot of opposites in their characters, but these two can make for a really cute ship.
This ship is a favourite of mine because Gaara and Rock Lee were made for each other.
I think it's great because I feel like they really are set for each other..
Being Naruto and Sasuke's children, they are the perfect match for each other. I haven't seen any strong hints between Boruto and Sarada till now, but they will definitely end up together in the future. The main reason why they belong together is because of the fact that the chemistry between Naruto and Sasuke is very awesome and realistic, so, being their own children, they have their parent's characteristics and habits. If the bond between Naruto and Sasuke is such a stronger one than any other couples, then BoruSara will definitely work!
How are they not the perfect couple? They are a mixture between the top 3 pairs of the Naruto show! 1.The SasuNaru pairing- they have a relationship much like their fathers. Their different personalities cause them to clash and argue. Though just like with Naruto and Sasuke, the two protect each other and watch over each other. Their bond cannot be described with words. They bring out different sides to each other. The 2.NaruHina pairing- um, hello? Sarada actually did the whole watching over Boruto thing just like Hinata. She watches over him and when he accomplishes his goal, she gets really happy! That's what Hinata used to do. And in chapter 700, we see Sarada following Boruto once again.3. The SasuSaku pairing- when Sasuke was in the village, one thing you always saw, where there was Sasuke, there would be Sakura and vice versa. They were always at each other's side, fighting together and protecting each other. They stood together all the time. We see this with Boruto and Sarada ...more
I absolutely love this couple. They're my favorite so far. It's obvious they both like each other and their development so far is perfect. Also their characters are written well and their personalities actually go pretty well together. My favorite moment with them is when Boruto chases her on the ship. It's so cute. Like honestly so far it wouldn't make sense for them to not be together with all their moments and the little hints.
I might agree with this ship becase in the first ten episodes of Boruto he was acting like a brat so Sarada will teach him because she is like her mother.
Upvote because any other ship with naruto is better than him with sakura. I hate the nice guy syndrome. People should be with who the like and truly understand as a person
Cute, because Naruto is so "troublesome! "
They are such a good ship he was the first Person to really accept naruto and welcome his friend
HELL NO! They've literally never talked to each other throughout the entire Naruto Shippuden series. This ship is just stupid...
Both of them would be a better couple. Hope both have feeling to each other.
The Mizukage dreams of marrying a powerful shinobi if I remember well.
They have the same age.
I'm sure they'd look cute together.
And we saw international couples wasn't a problem (Shika/Tema ; Chouji/Karui) so why the hell not?
They would be hot couple
I love Konan. Being the only female akatsuki member she was bound to have lots of pairings, but I think Peins the best because he's so mysterious, yet they seem to get along fine, and it seems that she's the only one that understands him.
Konan is the best Naruto girl, and Pain is so handsome and amazing! They're perfect couple!
You mean yahiko and konan right cause they should be in the top 3.
Uuumh.. Pain? He's none of them.. I like Yahiko and Konan together. Yahiko admitted that he loves Konan. Not Nagato.. they are more like siblings
YES QUEEN- Okay okay so this is my 2nd favorite ship in all of Naruto. And you're probably thinking, "Oh no you can't ship this. Obito loved Rin." And I understand where you're coming from, but hear me out. He should learn to love someone as great as Kakashi. Even though they haven't really ever gotten along very well from the start, they still were friends. It's like a Sasuke to Naruto relationship. Their rivalry and urge to protect and sacrifice is one in the same thing. Obito died for Kakashi in the end, so I don't understand why you wouldn't love this ship.
Love this couple. First of, they're two of the hottest characters in Naruto. Secound- the ANGST! The drama- everything. Kakashi changed his life because of Obito and Obito didn't hesitste to give up his life for him. Sure, he was in love with Rin, but it's time to move on He cares more about Kakashi than he lets on. They are just so perfect... And that line Obito said to Kakashi; "I want to fill that void in your heart. Ask anything you desire, and in the world I'm creating I'll give it to you." So... CUTE!
There's so much more to the back story than it looks like, it's obvious that Obito cares more about Kakashi than he lets on. Obito literally gave up his life and left eye for Kakashi. And Kakashi changed his entire life because of a few simple sentences that Obito said. Cutest couple ever.
There like the SasuNaru of their generation but with a different story. I've always seen Kakashi and Obito as two halves of one character because of the way they changed personalities, like Obito was Yin and Kakashi Yang. Because of that it just feels natural that they would be attracted to eachother.
I don't like this pairing. It feels like Dan was just there to die and make Tsunade's life harder. It sucks.
I think these two are just so perfect together. Tsunade was so sad after he died, and you can really tell they loved eachother.
My OTP in the series. They are just perfect for each other. Always beside one another. They should be higher on the list...
I think this couple would be really good In Naruto. Jiraiya liked Tsunade ever since he was a kid and maybe Tsunade had feelings for Jiraiya to but It's a shame he died before she could tell him.
Tsunade and Jiraya would've been cute together. It's too bad Tsunade lost too many loved ones after putting her whole entire being into trusting and loving them only to lose them right away.
Including with Jiraya when he convinced her to let him battle pein.
Unrequited love of jiraiya to tsunade and the hidden feelings of tsunade to jiraiya. The tears of tsunade when jiraiya went to fight pain its breathtaking and its ironic how does jiraiya the womanizer has one and only lobe and that is tsunade,
They would have made a beautiful couple. He was deeply in love with her, he liked her since childhood, and I'm sure she cared for him and would have given him a chance if only he hadn't died.
Ramen was always there for Naruto, just like Naruto was there for Ramen. When no one liked Naruto, Ramen always helped him get through It. Naruto and Iruka became friends and bonded over Ramen and Iruka led Naruto to happiness. Ramen and Naruto Is the best ship in the entire show.
Throughout Naruto, no ship has been better developed.
Often times in long running shonun anime, the anime can loose direction because there isn't one, truly solid goal/love throughout the entire series. One of the things that makes Naruto so great is that it does have this type of consistent, show long theme. There are actually two of them. The first is that right from the beginning, Naruto wants to become Hokage. The second is that Naruto loves ramen.
This ship is an integral part of the show. Naruto's love for ramen is a subtle yet continuous driving force, and honestly, we all know that this show wouldn't be the same without Naruto x Ramen.
Have you ever read that book "The Giving Tree"? I think of Naruto and his relationship with Ramen quite like this. Ramen has such a significant role in Naruto's characteristics and without ramen, I doubt the Naruto we know would be the same.
Ramen was there by Naruto's side when nobody else was. Ramen lead him to Ichiraku, the one restaurant that didn't discriminate against Naruto for his tailed beast.
Ramen provides comfort for Naruto on such a deep and profound level.
No, I don't think these two would end up together even if Rin lived. Kakashi just rejected her and it would seem impossible she would simp over him after that rejection. Besides she would harbor some guilt because she's the reason why Obito died and top of that it broke her hopes that Kakashi somehow reciprocates her feelings knowing the truth that she will never be a priority (he ended up abandoning her over some mission, how crazy is that?) Then she knows how it means to ne friendzoned too.
Kakashi cried because that was a normal emotional response to the situation. He developed PTSD because transplanted sharingan makes you let see things clearly and with utmost clarity. That's why nightmares lingered and he was traumatized than ever.
He failed to protect her and broken his promise to Obito. Think guilt tripping him would make him reciprocate those feelings?The same thing can be said to Rin, can't force her to return those feelings of the guy who saved her because she ...more
Lol KakaRin will never happen because Kakashi rejected Rin and as far as I'm concerned there's no possibility she would obssessed over him. Rin will never be as close as Sakura who gets to marry her crush. The parallels never existed proof of that is Rin's gradual acknowledgement of Obito's feelings in the afterlife. That's why she spent her time in the afterlife watching him. She died knowing Obito had affection for her but never gets to confessed to her. And her REJECTION by Kakashi was a remarkable point that not all fangirls deserved a happily ever after with their love. ObiRin had a higher chance to happen, a trope of childhood friends to lovers tells everything. There is hope for guys affection to be reciprocated which happen to Obito. Peace!XD
Kakashi needs someone his own age. If only he didn't kill Rin they could have at least dated. she liked him but he ended up friend zoning her then killing her.
They have more canonical evidence proving that it wasn't one sided.
