Top Ten Avatar Couples and Ships


The Top Ten

1 Zuko x Katara - Zutara

These two have so much in common and have such a deep and understanding chemistry that it's almost divine. These two were written as Twin Flames, two souls that were originally one but split to go on similar journeys and help bring the world into balance. There is a lot of symbolism with their relationship that resembles the Twin Flame connection:
Water/Fire, Moon/Sun, Yin/Yang, Cold/Hot, etc.

They both lost their mothers the exact same year. They both felt abandoned by their fathers; however, Zuko's father was around but didn't love him. Katara's father loved her but was never around. Zuko let Katara, his enemy, touch his scar, which was something he let no one do.

There seemed to be a deep level of intimacy and understanding right from the start when they actually had alone time together, just like with Twin Flames. Despite the fact that Katara was the last person to accept Zuko, she grows the closest to him in the shortest amount of time. She grows so close to the ...more

I don't get why this is so far down on the list. I actually think that they would of been a wonderful couple. The way the author made their friendship develop and the little moments they've shared. They would be good for one another. And Katara needs a proper man, not a kid(no offense to Aang). Personally I think Katara played a big role in Zuko going to the good side. In Ba Sing Se, I think that stirred something inside him. She brings out the good in him and he helps her understand life better if you ask me. She's seen that who she believed is a villain is acually just a hurt teenager who has inner turmoil. Even that lady Zuko hired thought they were dating, the actors of that play thought there was some romance. Its like they could see the chemistry. Zuko and Katara's personaliy contrast one another. He jumped infront of lightning for HER. He allowed her to touch his scar! Zuko was so cute when he was trying to get her to forgive him. I love every moment they've shared. The hug, ...more

They look perfect together, they understand each other well, they work work together well, opposite attract, Zuko is willing to risk his life to save Katara, Just perfect!

Deserved to be canon and I’m still bitter they didn’t end up together

2 Katara x Aang - Kataang

It's the original. It's canon. Aang supports yet levels out Katara's intense passions while Katara helps Aang to be the best he can while caring for him. How can you not ship them the most?

Should be #1 - PeeledBanana

It is a real couple, outside this one, only maiko has been confirmed 100%, it remains zutarians accept.

It's adorable, it's canon, and it has t o n s of chemistry

3 Korra x Asami - Korrasami

Only lgbt couple in both shows and works really well with Korra's hotheaded nature and responsibilities with Asami's calm, loving nature and her greatness at helping Korra.

One of my favorite ships in cartoons - BreakFastBeast2005

Biggest troll ship ever, which is why I love it. Plus Korra and Asami go well together, they aren't constantly fighting like Korra and Mako was.

4 Sokka x Suki - Sukka

They're so so cute together and they're my favorite canon ship. Suki also proves Sokka wrong about women and actually changes him as a character.

Should be number 1 in my opinion.
- The genuinely enjoy each others company
- Suki helps Sokka get over his sexism and grow as a person
- healthy respect is shared between the both of them
- Older than kataang (though slightly), so I believe they are better equipped to handle the rocky parts of a relationship
- both natural leaders
- both non-benders
- romantic intentions are prevalent from their first meeting and are never subjected to the hard shift from friend to lover.
- they argue well. Remember wheb sokka was crying watchimg the ember island players and Suki got mad but she still went to help him talj to the actor like 5 minutes later.
- she enjoys his humour

5 Zuko x Maiko

Okay, so I really love Mai as a character, but as much as I love her, I feel like she's the type of character to not end up in a major relationship with anyone by the end of the series, the same with Zuko. Zuko's character development was phenomenal and it makes no sense as to why he ended up with Mai in my opinion. Mai didn't play so much as of a big impact for Zuko's face-heel turn (or was it heel-face turn? idc) In other words, Mai didn't really change Zuko for the better. Supported him? Yes she did, The Boiling Rock episode sort of redeemed her character, but not so much.

The reason? well, maybe because she didn't really have much of a major background like Zuko does and that she hadn't really kept in touch with him in the duration of his banishment? Also, she's not as emotionally driven as Zuko so they would both kind of end up in this never-ending loop of an on and off relationship, they don't understand each other at all. (I.E. "At least I feel something! You're just a ...more - sakamotos

They are amazing -- zuko and mai! But didn't you mean ZUKO AND MAI not ZUKO AND MAIKO😂Lmao. Honestly, zuko is full of fire and passion, and sometimes love and anger, but mai is the balance that can balance out his negative feelings of sometimes over exaggerated emotions. They are perfect

6 Aang x Katara - Zutara
7 Varrick x Zhu Lee - Zhurrick
8 Bolin x Opal - Bopal

Bopal is my favourite ship! Dude they’re so cute together!

9 Toph x Sokka - Tokka

They totally get each other! They are such great teammates and friends. Plus you already know that Toph likes him, they give hints throughout the series. Tokka forever!

10 Bolin x Eska - Boleska

The Newcomers

? Zuko x Jet - Jetko
? Zuko X Sokka - Zukka

The Contenders

11 Ty Lee x Azula - Tyzula
12 Zuko x Toph - Toko
13 Zuko x Mai-Maiko
14 Opal x Jinora
15 Aang x Toph - Taang

Much more interesting couple than Kataang. - damariwave

16 Sokka x Yue - Yuka

Sokka and Suki are great, but I feel their relationship is only based on the physical aspect of things. While Yue and Sokka still had their share of romantic kisses, they spent so much more time talking. Sokka and Yue have such a meaningful relationship. My gosh... In my opinion, they are a model couple. Remind me why they're on the bottom?

The only moment when I cried in this series. Such a beautiful relationship. He has never forgotten her, and still thinks of her when he sees the moon. That's true love, however brief and fleeting.

17 Kai x Jinora - Kainora
18 Zuko x Aang - Zaang
19 Korra x Bolin - Borra

I believe that these two would've had a wonderful relationship since they get along so well, and they seem to balance each other. Ever since their date or hang out, the way that Bolin looked at her, he was really in love with her. It's such a shame that she had to choose Mako ( an a-hole) over such a great guy like Bolin.

20 Mako x Korra - Makorra

Makorra over Korrasami.

21 Jake Sully x Neytiri - Jeytiri
22 Sokka x Ty Lee - Ty Lokka
