Top Ten Avatar Couples and Ships

The Top Ten
1 Katara x Aang - Kataang

It's the classic ship, and it works so well! Katara originally hated Zuko, but Aang and Katara always worked. They understood each other, and they had been through more together than Katara and Zuko (unless you count them battling, but I'm not sure that supports Zutara). Also, many say that Zutara "visually" works. They're both teenagers so it's better, Zutara fans state. But let me point out - Katara and Aang only have a 1 year age difference, while Zuko and Katara have a 3 year age difference. Last but not least, even the WRITERS supported it! The original creators! They got married and had 3 kids, so clearly they were always meant to be together.

I feel like this gets a lot of hate and a lot of support, but if you have to ask me it doesn't deserve hate. Aang liked katara mildly in the beginning, and Katara saw him as one of her best friends and brother, but then time went on and they began to bond more and you realize: wow, their relationship is beautiful. And to those of you who are sor easy to attack Kataang , you have to Think about how many times Katara has pulled him out of the avatar state and how many times she has blushed and hoped and encouraged him. Zutara is nice, but Kataang is A hundred times better.

I'm kind of both a zutara and kataang shipper. I think that both sides really have their moments and either way, it would've ended up well. But if I had to choose, I would definitely lean more towards Kataang. I feel like this is a couple that I shipped from the very start. Over time, it was amazing to see their chemistry grow, and Kotara was the first person that joined Aang and supported him. They've always been their for each other, and I know that Aang is very young which makes it feel very weird. But, if you just look past that into how well they work together, I know that Aang and Kotara would do anything for each other and in a time that they were both lost, and had no one, they found each other. Kotara saved Aang from the iceberg, and Aang saved Kotara countless times. So in the end, I always kind of shipped them from the start and I feel like they were meant to be. I feel like Zutara is the norm for a relationship and it's sort of cliche, but Kataang is unique and they really ...more

At first, I wasn't sure about the ship at all. But then as they started bonding better, I thought about it and was like, "I guess it's kinda cute." I support this ship, not just because it's canon and I'd feel bad not liking it, but because I think they are just a perfect pair.
I was getting a bit scared thinking Katara didn't like him back because she didn't really show affection, as Aang REALLY showed it, but it turned out well in the end.
I don't think any other ship is as sweet as this one.

2 Sokka x Suki - Sukka

Especially given that they are a secondary couple and don't get much screen time, their relationship is really well developed and healthy/mature

- they actually communicate even if it's difficult (I.e. Sokka saying he's not ready to kiss her in Serpent's Pass)
- they're very supportive of each other (Suki thinking Sokka's awful sculpture is sweet because the thought that counts and enjoying his dumb jokes)
- Their personalities balance well - Sokka is the goofy one who helps her enjoy life more, Suki is a bit more grounded and helps him be more grounded/mature too but they also both have fun together
- They're very affectionate with each other without feeling forced, both big gestures (tent scene, kisses) and smaller ones (Suki holding his hand to reassure him of a decision in Boiling Rock, Sokka's reaction to even hearing her name)

Easily my favorite ship. Whenever he sees her, he stops everything he's doing, happily says her name, and goes to be with her. Plus she helps him stop being sexist and start seeing women as valid, capable fighters. They're two of my favorite characters and I think they were soulmates.

Their relationship goes through such great development over the series, it's just the cutest. And Sokka looking so exited every time he sees her and vise versa is just the most adorable thing ever.

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.

3 Korra x Asami - Korrasami

This needs no real explanation; Korrasami's relationship is valid. Even with a bumpy beginning, their relationship developed well in the later books. Such a shame Nickelodeon couldn't show anything more than a hand hold.

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.

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 Zuko x Katara - Zutara

There's a lot of reason in many aspects why me and a lot of people ship Zutara. The story arc, the chemistry, the potential, not only they looks cute together or people trying potrayed themself to those characters. They wasn't canon, but have remained a popular ship for years, that's definitely something.

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

This one just makes the most sense, they both have shared connections, katara actually helped the enemy when he was hurting, and They just have perfect chemistry!

5 Zuko x Mai - 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

This is better than Zuturara. Also Mai is obviously Izumi's mother

I think they're ok

To the person who said she's a bad influence of zuko, she's not their personalities Blanche each other

6 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?

I feel this is better than Suki and sOkKa, but I think it is because they clicked so instantly. There was nothing wrong with the two of them together. Suki is a Mary Sue and
Yum was beautiful. I wished she'd stayed alive, or Sokka definitely would have chosen hue.

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.

I think this is the best

7 Varrick x Zhu Lee - Zhurrick

While I probably like Zutara and Sukka more, this one is just so cute and underrated I had to give it my vote.

Even with its ups and downs, this is still one of the cuter ships in LOK.

It's so cute yet so underrated.

8 Mako x Korra - Makorra

What why is this in the bottom they were cute because they were opposites and both are attractive. This was canon!

Pfft... way better than Korrasami

For some reason I can't stop shipping water benders and fire benders

I don't like Kora because she is a new avatar life, and she should pay for all the wrongs aang did but their a cute couple

9 Toph x Sokka - Tokka

Similarly to Zuko x Toph, I don't actually ship them, but the brother-sister relationship between these two would have been great.

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!

It is so clear that they are meant for each other. Suki and yue are both so bland. Toph and sokka are getting together in the Netflix remake so this is even better.

Best ship ever.

10 Bolin x Opal - Bopal

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

I love this ship

The Contenders
11 Zuko x Jin

I really wish Zuko had ended up with Jin. Mai felt kind of empty and I feel like that was kind of a letdown.

I wish Zuko had not left Jin cause Jin would have of cared for him much better than Mai ! IMHBO ...

12 Kai x Jinora - Kainora

They are young . They will be together for a long time . I mean, Jinora is very obedient and serious while Kai was a thief yet they have so much fun together besides their differences . I really hope they get married!

Favorite ship ever. I literally think they are adorable together.

How is this not higher?

So awesome Kai in like a total Badass while Jinora is that quiet girl works so well

13 Ty Lee x Azula - Tyzula

Out of all the LGBTQ couples, this one kind of seemed as real as Asami and Korra's relationship in the second series, they seemed to have a deeper relationship then just best friends,they seem to hit it off pretty well.

This could definitely work but only if azula had some serious development and get a redemption arc

14 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.

Nah, that ain't true

15 Bolin x Eska - Boleska
16 Zuko X Sokka - Zukka

Bros > hoes. their relationship is so hilarious and somehow sweet/special at the same time. past the layers of sokka's big dumb and zuko's edginess, they are almost the same. its true friendship and much more. though their screen time is limited, just one converstation between them gave us probably the most iconic line of the series: "that's rough buddy." sokka is the first to become zuko's close friend (probably his first EVER) when he joins the gaang in book 3. zuko's awkward fluff amazingly compliments sokka's extroverted joking. they're just bros who have an epic romance.

Honestly, I really don't care about what anyone ships, I just find this one pretty cute sometimes.

Classic gay Red-and-Blue pairing. What else could you want?

17 Aang x Toph - Taang

Much more interesting couple than Kataang.

18 Mai x Ty-Lee

yin and yang, tbh! you have ty lee, who is all bubbly and optimistic, and then there's mai, who leans more towards being a pessimist and more dry. so they balance each other out! I don't know I just think they're cute together, they like each other + at a minimum they're great as friends.

19 Zuko x Toph - Toko

I don't actually ship them as a couple, but I feel like it would be a great brother-sister relationship.

I know that this ship doesn't make sense but it's like.. I don't know why but I ship them, I like this. makes me happy

It's just self indulgent brain food; their on screen time together is just cute--

20 Zuko x Aang - Zaang

This is the best 'cause like. Total enemies becoming friends then MoRe ThAn FrIeNdS is sooo cute! :> (Especially Aang and Zuko)

I am a strong believer in shipping wholesome people with edgy bois.

Best ship ever. Hands down!

21 Sokka x Ty Lee - Ty Lokka
22 Katara x Toph - Katoph

I wouldn't say it was a romance but a bit more of a sibling bond " big sister" or mother-daughter relationship, katara was like a big sister to toph,sometimes bossy to her like a mother,they eventually;not at first learned to communicate better,cared for each other even though sometimes they got on each other's nerves. they eventually got to the point where they were talking their feelings out amongst the two of them. They Just became the best of friends.

The relationship between them seems maternal, but I feel like they foil each other well enough to be ship fodder.

23 Zuko x Jet - Jetko
24 Opal x Jinora
25 Aang x Azula - Azang

Two total opposites could've been so great together.
