Best My Little Pony Couples

The Top Ten

1 Soarin and Rainbow Dash

I have always found this ship my favourite because they are my 2 favourite Characters in the show and soarin is the wonderbolt that care for her the most and I find the 2 were made for each other and in rainbow falls rainbow dash was the only one that goes and saves soarin. Even tho soarin loves pie and rainbow hate then and rainbow is more Enthusiastic and soarin is more calm, that is like the only things that separate them

I always found this couple very awesome in it's own wright. they just seem so perfect for each other

I think they are both similar in loving their jobs as flyers and take them seriously, but Soarin' is calm while Rainbow Dash is impulsive. He's a pie junkie while she's an adrenaline junkie. I just think they balance each other out.

? no. I don't know I feel like the ship is so predictable and overrated

2 Fluttershy and Discord

You can't beat these two. They balance each other ever so perfectly. Fluttershy has become more confident and Discord became kinder. Discord is like her strength and Fluttershy is like his heart. I know Fluttershy will die and Discord will out live her but think of it like this. Surely they'll start a family and Discord will be alive to watch his family tree grow. He'll see his kids grow and have kids too. He'll be watching his grandchildren grow and have kids as well. How cool would it be to see all your relatives be born and grow. 1000 years into the future, if anyone related to Discord has questions about their family tree, I'm sure Discord would be more than happy to tell them their family history because he got to see it himself. And who says he won't be able to see Fluttershy? Most people believe when we die we become spirits and Discord is a spirit of Chaos. Maybe when Fluttershy dies she'll be a spirit in another dimension and Discord can visit her and tell her all about how ...more

The first comment is just perfect! I loved the ship, and the reasoning they gave to why it could be an excellent ship just made me love it even more!

They get each other like no other. Fluttershy is well, shy and therefor knows what it's like to be lonely and not have a friend

This is my favorite ship of all time and the absolute best ship in mlp there ever was. I like it has number 2 spot. After I had watched the fan fic Bride Of Discord I fell in love with the ship and I realized how much the series hints at it. I really hope it happens. And as evidence, Discord only cared about Fluttershy. Whenever he hears something happened to the main six he is like, "whatever" and then turns into immediate anger when he hears that means something happened to Fluttershy too. He also has weekly tea parties with her. And once he nearly died to make his home suitable for a visit from Fluttershy. Fluttershy also decided to go against what normally likes to save him. It's a really nice ship, and it's practically confirmed already, so I want them to admit their feelings!

3 Pinkie Pie and Cheese Sandwich

No pony understands a party pony better than another party pony! With each other there's no need to explain their randomness, no looks of confusion at the other's antics, no "it's just pinkie being pinkie", just understanding and love and PARTIES AND FUN AND ENDLESS LAUGHS!

They're similar enough to truly understand each other, but different enough that they aren't just clones of each other. Pinkie Pie is more open and friendly, more down to earth. Cheese Sandwich however has a louder, more bombastic party throwing style, but is a bit more detached and has a shy streak. They balance each other out! And despite being just generally perfect for each other, their relationship is not without conflict. Cheese Sandwich is a traveler, he has a literal wanderlust in the form of his cheesy sense, which takes him all across Equestria. Pinkie Pie is the opposite, she prefers to surround herself with close friends, she prefers to have a home. This adds a little bit of much needed conflict ...more

They share enough similarities such as the party pony trait and have a good relationship. He even summons her when he is in his worst slump. They also balance each other out with their own styles.

I LOVE this ship so much. When I heard that Pinkie Pie was supposed to be getting a boyfriend, I was disappointed when they said it won't be Cheese Sandwich. They're SO CUTE! Pinkie Pie is the reason Cheese Sandwich is who he is today.

They get married at some point in the actual show I’m not gonna say when though but they have a daughter named lil cheese

4 Lyra Heartstrings and Bonbon

@person, no, it's not strange for straight people to like gay shippings. I know a lot of people who are straight and like gay shippings. I so love this ship, and with season 9 episode 26, I think they got married from the few hints we got.

It was soooo sad when Bonbon told Lyra that she lied about her identity...

LyraBon is amazing. Normally, I'm not into lesbian shippings, but this one and OctaScratch are exceptions.
O.O (Is it strange that I'm hetero and I like gay shippings? Someone please tell me!

I don't know... This is just a pairing... I only think that bonbon likes lyra, but lyra likes pinkie.

5 Twilight Sparkle and Flash Century

It's a good couple. Girl has crush. Guy secretly likes girl. He is in royal guard so he will protect her and can get close to her. Oh boy. This is obvious.

I like the idea of Twilight having a love interest, and I just wish they'd develop his character more, which would make this couple more awesome!

I love flash and twilight because they're so cute and I don't care what the haters say about them, my heart tells me that they're made for each other and I hope they go on date, get married and have kids.

I am such a fan of this ship (if it's the pony version) because if you watch carefully, he's ALWAYS shooting glimpses at Twilight when he's on guard duty. PLEASE GIVE US AN EPISODE WHERE THEY GET SOME TIME OFF TOGETHER!

6 Rarity and Applejack

I just LOOOOVEE them, and in EQG their interactions are just cute

Yes boi best one here. I love this since they are so good together and are simple the best characters

I love this ship! Wish it was more popular

In rollercoaster in friendship this was pretty much confirmed I ship this so much

7 Spike and Rarity

This should be 1! First of all Spikes little moments with Rarity are very cute. The Spike and Rarity episodes are the best! And Spike loves Rarity much more than Cranky loves Matilda. There a nice couple, too and should really be ahead of fluttershy and Big Mac.

I don't like this one... Spike has an unrequited love for her, but all Rarity does is exploit him for her own gain! So much for generosity. Spike would be better off with someone who would treat him RIGHT

I hope either Spike becomes a pony or we get some awesome dragon/pony hybrid!

Eh, I don't think it would work with the species and age difference

8 Rainbow Dash and Applejack

I ship it. Considering all the hate comments, I'm going to say something positive! Yes, they are both stubborn. Yes, they would fight a lot. But that doesn't make the relationship bad, it just makes it so that they won't ever bottle up their feelings with each other. Applejack would ground Rainbow when she gets too crazy, and Rainbow would make Applejack feel loved and taken care of, instead of Applejack having to always be the one to take care of others.

I don't like the ship honestly I hate it

Why just why just NO

Stop you hating. Your just jealous your not included in this couple.

9 Shing Armor and Cadence

DUR this couples perfect! There already married

I'm sorry, but I only put this up here for fans. I watched a video, and now I just don't like this couple.

Whoever posted this ship seriously needs to correct the title. Who the heck is "Shing" Armor? It's Shining Armor.

Of course! I mean they're married and now they have a little girl!

10 Princess Luna and Discord

I like how Luna never puts herself above discord, she knows she was evil once too, also Luna was really lonely too, being the only nocturnal pony

I think this pairing is cute but luna should be with sombra not discord

YES! OH MY CELESTIA, YES! *coughs* Sorry, my fangirl side just took over. I love LunaCord so much. A long time ago, I liked Fluttercord just because everyone did, but time flew... And LunaCord became one of my favorites.

LunaXDiscord FOREVER!

I agree. Luna was supposed with sombra, not discord.

The Contenders

11 Derpy and Time Turner

Laugh out loud, I think these two are good because they are always spending time together, and I think it would be adorable.

They're complete opposites, yet so perfect! I think it's kinda weird saying who should marry who, but this is fun. In 'A Slice of Life' I couldn't stop laughing at how Derpy wanted to touch everything when TimeTurner was explaining science

They doo spend an awful lot of time together

Laugh it love now it's a wedding time

12 Sweetie Belle and Button Mash

Young love is always cute! And have you SEEN the pictures of them?!

ADORABLE couple. I would love to see them talk more!

"Now we're strangers, but I miss you, oh I wonder if you miss me too..."

I know this couple is SOOO YOUNGER...but I think this ship is way more cuter than the others! Sweetie Belle and Button Mash are really perfect together! If they both married, I think they are going to name their kids "Sweetie Mash" and "Button Belle"

13 Fluttershy and Big Mac

This is cute, but, I'm not a fan. What did they do to prove they even ARE a couple? I love Fluttershy and Discord the most, because they are friends and they do show their feelings for each other! (I actually think Discord likes Fluttershy! )

Both of them don't talk as that much so this is the perfect ship

Don't like it. Big Mac is a work pony with limited vocabulary, and fluttershy is kind and takes care of animals. There is a difference between being shy, and not talking much. Bad ship, but I do like fluttercord. They write, and again and again, she stands up for him.

This ship doesn't have anything to back it up. People are only shipping them together because they're both shy and I have to admit, they make a cute couple. I don't have anything against this ship, but... Big Mac and Marble Pie are much more obvious.

14 Twilight Sparkle and Rarity

They would be adorable together. Spike's too young to be with Rarity. Sorry Spike.

This one was a surprise at first but now that I think about it, it seems like a really good pairing.

Spike is only too young because if he grew up... Well, just watch "Secret of my excess"

They both get each other if u know what I mean.

15 Celestia and Discord

No, absolutely not, they have shown no actual feelings towards each other in any episodes, plus I don't really see them as a couple. Discord clearly has a crush on Fluttershy and I totally ship those two. Sorry, I'm not a dislestia fan, I'm a Fluttercord fanatic!

I totally agree
And I always thought that Celestia hated Discord

As a Delistia shipper, I believe it is time to accept our defeat. Face it, we're dieing out as I type. Will these ships go on in our hearts and Fan fiction with fan art. Congratulations to Fluttercord shippers, it's been a wild ride, fighting and debating which ship would be canon and more popular and better. Results don't lie. Even Discord x Luna has beaten us. It's been a fun 9 years and I'm glad I was a part of it.

This was the original Discord ship back in 2011. Before the dark times, before the fluttercord shippers. Ah yes that was a better time.

How are these guys not higher up! Just look at the fan art for them!

16 Starlight Glimmer and Sunburst

Awesome couple. Totally vote for this! SO OBVIOUS that Starlight likes Sunburst!

This appeared! Totally voting for this!

I can see them getting married

Obviously these two

17 Princess Cadance and Shining Armor

I don't see why this couple is so disliked in the fandom, cadence and shining are a loving couple cadence cares very much for shining, and he wants to protect her.

Married after all. Really good for Twilight.

No! To be honest, I ship Flash Sentry and Shining Armor.

I do not like this. I hate this and this is so awful because they have no chemistry.

18 Trixie Lulamoon and Starlight Glimmer

Only # 42? This should be number one easily. They have such a great dynamic and make an absolutely adorable couple. I even had a custom commission plush wedding set of these two made, that is how much I love this ship.

Don't just ship them, marry them!

It is actually an good idea

OTP! Should be higher

The Starlight I love... -Trixie

They both have bad past and love magic.

19 Vinyl Scratch and Octavia

Why is it so bad? I give it 10/10

Too perfect they harmonize each other in every way

Is cute and they are all way next together

This *ship is awesome.

20 Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash

What I'm wondering is why this couple is so far down on the list. If you think opposites attract this should number 3. If you like alike couples this would be number 5. The egg head and the athlete, two daring do fans. TWIDASH ALL THE WAY!

Why isn't the ship somewhere at the top of this list?! I mean come on!

I love this ship

They are more alike then most people think and to me, they always shared a special bond together. TWIDASH forever!

21 Queen Chrysalis and King Sombra

According to the Lost Crystal Princess Theroy, they ruled side by side,

They are both evil so I can see them sympathize with each other. Chrysalis used to rule over a entire kingdom and so did Sombra

I love it some people say they used to rule together!

Cool ship dudes

22 Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie

Why is PinkieDash so low on this list? They're *pouts* so cute together! Besides, this ship is SO much better than CheesePie and SoarinDash.

Ship names:
Flying Balloon
Pink Rainbow

They are the most underrated fictional couple in media history. They should get together more often when season 5 comes out.

Rainbow dash and pinkie pie are a weird, but cute couple because pinkie pie is funny and rainbow dash is the opposite.

23 Lyraheartstrings and Pinkiepie

Laugh out loud, I have always thought that these two liked each other, or at least lyra likes pinkie. If only pinkie would open her eyes and realize love is closer than she thinks.

I think Lyra and Bon Bon are a better match

They both break the 4th wall

Never thought of this Ship :D. It sounds cool though, and I can imagine it.

24 Applejack and Caramel

This is the first couple that I like. Caramel who is a worker of sweet apple acres has a crush on AppleJack. How cool is that? Best Applejack shipping. I like their fanfics.

Oh... Apples plus apples into big apples!

They seem perfect for each other.

My favorite couple

25 Rarity and Braeburn

NO! For one thing, Rarity is very ladylike. Braeburn is a pony that watches Applejack in Rodeo shows. Rarity would die if she was forced to marry Braeburn. Seriously.

Braeburn is a gentleman to her

Who the hell put this here? braeburn is gay
