Best Sonic Couples
The Top Ten
A few fans might disagree with you when it comes to the idea of babies/children.
Heck, in the comics he was able to have a children with Mina Mongoose while Bunnie Rabbot was able to have a child of her own.
Never say never, but always say maybe.
Bloody hell, I don't seem to understand why it was ranked so low. I mean Cosmo gave her life to let the others live, including Tails. Isn't that enough to express her love for him. And all the agony he had to go through once she died. Tails did not have enough strength to cope with such an occurrence. BY THE WAY; Tails made the promise that he would let nothing hurt her (which is a bloody tall order) and Cosmo made the promise that she would return and always be by his side. Rethink things and revisit and revisit. Trust, a promise for life and two hearts that were meant to be embroidered together. Is that not love?
Tails and Cosmo forever. Sonamy? Please. Sonic has barely shown any affection toward Amy! Tails and Cosmo love each other! And it's not just because of the spell either, Tails loved her BEFORE that! Who could forget his "You're so... Beau-AH! " line?! And when Amy asks Cosmo about her and Tails? She just blushed away! I mean, come on, SEGA, did you just seriously kill half of the best couple you ever created? I'll admit it makes it more memorable, but seriously! You destroyed Tails' heart! Like... Like what is wrong with you?!
HE LOVES HER!
He makes it obvious! Tails blushed and almost said she was beautiful! He was to shy and just stopped.. Before he even said it, he was thinking about how special she is and that he wished he could tell her how he felt! AWWWWWW! Furthermore, Cosmo felt the same! In the ep. Planet of Misfortune, Amy asked her if she had crush on Tails and she blushed and replied that she didn't know what Amy was talking about! I'm not even done yet, I know anti Tailsmo believers LOVE to say that the only reason they're in love was because of the spell... WRONG! Actually, Tails loved her before that! When Tails and Cosmo went to complete a mission underground, they feel and she put a bandage on his head. Doesn't it prove that she cares about him at least? Plus, Tails even blushed. Moreover, in ep. 77, (Japanese Version) before she died, HE SHOUTED I LOVE YOU! In the English Version he didn't. In both versions, HE WAS BALLING HIS EYES OUT FOR HER!
I love shadamy it's my world but everyones hating on it...I mean... I-it makes me sad that people make fun of this... I know the ship is unrealistic and horrible... and I know that amy likes sonic and shadow doesn't care about amy... but I like the ship it's my favorite it's a cute ship... I respect that others hate this and love sonamy better but I keep my hold..
I'm not one of those people who wants to see Sonic and Amy as a couple. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see them together, but I'm perfectly fine with them the way they are now. Sonic is a unique character because he's so simple and doesn't have a back story. Also, he doesn't have the time for a relationship. He'd rather have fun. Putting him in a relationship with Amy would be a dream come true, but it would also ruin what is so unique about the character. I love this idea and both characters, but I'm fine with them as they are.
I would say stuff, but everything is already explained. Amy is so sweet. In the Archie Comics, Sonic and Sally were together, but Amy helped them out anyway because all she wants is for Sonic to be happy. In Sonic Boom, Sonic got all defensive when Knuckles suggested that Amy might be setting up for a date (Episode Fuzzy Puppy Buddies). How cute is that? And Amy's whole purpose for creation was to be Sonic's love interest. This isn't canon, but in 1992 Sonic the Hedgehog manga, Eimi (Amy) and Nikki/Sonic were a couple, thus the creation of Amy. Don't forget their color schemes! Blue and Pink... Male and Female... Totally work!
Sonamy is endgame because when Amy dies in the comics Sonic cries but the emaralds bring her back to life from true love. Basically he was told true love saves all. Amy would be dead if Sonic did not love her. Also people, WHY DOES SONIC LET AMY CHASE HIM AND SMILES WHEN SHE DOES IT. He thinks she's cute to keep around and so he likes the chase. Not only that, but Sonic was crying when Amy did not recognize him as a werewolf. He said she was his whole life and cried of a broken heart. Also, when Egg man was torturing Amy Sonic said take your damn hands offa her and started crying because Egg man was going to throw Amy into lava. Also, in Sonic Riders he smashes into Egg man for kidnapping Amy. Also remember that time Sonic cried because she said she wasted her whole life chasing after him for nothing and he said it wasn't for nothing it was for the chase in life and he gets on his knees and cries and she runs away he comes after her. Also he cried when Amy fell from chasing him saying ...more
I think Sonaze makes far more sense than any other Blaze or Sonic ship.
Amy is sweet and a good friend, but she's obsessed with Sonic and he CLEARLY doesn't like it. Just seeing his reactions too, I feel like he wouldn't be into very girly girls. Amy likes shopping and cute things and keeps irritating Sonic with dates and the idea of marriage.
I feel like Sonaze has definitely been hinted throughout numerous games and media. And I can see why.
They've got different personalities but are still similar enough to have a good bond. Plus Blaze is a natural fighter and independent. She doesn't ever slow down, just like Sonic.
They also had such intense scenes in the Rush series, and even Percival in SATBK. I just think that they'd be a cute couple that could develop far better.
I love this ship! Sonic taught Blaze that it's okay to rely on friends, and that it's okay to open up. Sonic teaches her that she shouldn't make everything solely her responsibility, and that she "shouldn't put the world on her shoulders alone." They both have great speed and strength, they rival each other, bringing out that sense of achievement when one would impress the other. Plus, Blaze had even ONLY showed up to his birthday only for HIM. She went out of her comfort zone just to support Sonic. They are both independent, they wouldn't get in each others way either. Blaze enjoys adventure, and so does Sonic. Blaze would let Sonic continue his adventuring days and wouldn't cling onto him and make him settle down. Blaze is independent enough to take care of herself and her kingdom. Plus it's cute seeing Sonic get Blaze out of her comfort zone and interact with others! At the end of Sonic Rush, with Sonic and Blaze holding hands with each other as they depart, you can see Blaze ...more
Blaze is a great partner for Sonic. She's dependable, independent yet she is even better with a team, talented, and even tactful. She's beautiful, strong, lithe and flexible. She's the perfect partner for Sonic., Blaze can be just as cocky as Sonic, if not more so.. She's not that different from Sonic. In spin-offs such as the Riders and Olympics series, Blaze is shown to have become far more confident. Nearly all of her lines involve her bragging about how awesome she is, and she doesn't take losing well... Not unlike Sonic, one of the main influences behind her Character Development. They have excellent chemistry.
This wouldn’t work out for two reasons. One, Blaze was originally created to be a female Sonic from another dimension, which would make it kind of weird if they were together. Two, they’re similar personalities would make it hard for them to accept and open up to each other in the endgame. The stubborn and independent mindset of “I can tackle this all on my own” would drive a wedge between the two of them and would make it hard for them to ask help from each other. They also probably would try to be better then the other, as they both are competitive and unwilling to accept failure.
The most CONSISTENT, TWO-SIDED ship with ACTUAL ROMANTIC hints in the entire franchise. Games, anime, comics. It’s everywhere and it’s flipping canon. Both of their official Sega profiles even said so. Their chemistry in SA2 is WAY obvious. They literally have an almost-kiss moment. Even one of Knuckle’s theme songs in the game is him singing about his crush-in-denial. It’s very clear what message the writers were trying to send with these two. Sonic Team clearly ships it. Even Sonic himself has teased Knuckles and Rouge about their obvious feelings for each other. You KNOW it’s canon when an in-universe character (the flipping titular character of the franchise, no less!) acknowledges it! Shadouge shippers are in serious denial and need to stop whining. I mean, even when I was a HARDCORE Shadouge shipper, I STILL acknowledged Knuxouge was DEFINITELY a thing and was cool with both ships. Because you cannot deny Knuckles and Rouge have a thing for each other.
They're rivals, not a couple. Plus this ship makes Knuckles look stupid when he is supposed to be smart, not stupid. It is one sided and the whole "crush" thing is just Rouge being flirty.
SEXY! Knuckles must also have Rosalina from the Mario series.
In his Sonic Boom design, Knuckles might kidnap Princess Peach & take her to hell.
Knuckles and Rouge have a cute love hate relationship, Shadow only sees Rouge as a partner and nothing more.
There is no other ship that has more Canon Fodder than this ship. They're almost always together, and a few times, Tails has blushed in Sonic's presence. Whenever Tails is in trouble, who does he always hope saves him? Sonic! This needs to be a thing.
Ok who ever keeps saying "ew! " and other stuff to all the homosexual ones needs to bite his tongue, maybe that will show him, but as for the match up I think it's better than any other.. I mean really sonamy? Not likely but tails and sonic are amazing together!
Sonic x Rosalina (of the Comet Observatory) would work, too.
The couples would be great, especially in Western Canada.
Again ew and Yoshi and Sonic seriously I'd rather Daisy and Sonic and Daisy isn't a Sonic character
I think Tails and Cream are ADORABLE together. Their colors work well, their both young, and their personalities kind of reflect each other. And I Personally have never seen any sonic siries except Sonic Underground. But I looked up pictures of them and they ARE SO CUTE! If you don't believe me look it up right now. And Cosmo? Well... she really just doesn't look like she should be with Tails. (and please all you haters out there don't bother me about this. ) But she just seems like Tails and her would just not go very well together. (And right now I'm talking about VISUALS. ) So don't bring up "BUT THEY LOVE EACH OTHER" and I belive it when people talk about it. BUT SHES DEAD. He probably still misses her but he had to move on didn't he?
To be honest, 1. COSMO DIED IN SONIC X! Stop fantasizing! 2. Sonic likes amy ONLY as a friend, if he was shadow he would've killed her with chaos blast! Pfft... 3. Rouge only likes to mess with knuckles nothing more! 4. Shadaze doesn't even make sense! They don't even know each other! Same personalities-nothing else! And lastly, 5. Shadamy, shadow doesn't have time for love! Everyone thinks just because of Amy's one mistake for him being sonic they ship them. Even though cream is younger they're is a chance tails might get over Cosmo, I mean, not EVERY couple has to be the same age! Face the facts people! FACE THE FACTS!
Tails and Cream never shown any romantic feelings towards each other in any of the games, comics or shows, so this "ship" never existed nor even happened. Screw the fact that Tails and Cream complemented on their gear in Sonic Free Riders, it was only general interaction, not a romantic moment, people. I'm sure Sonic and Tails would say the same to each other if they liked each other's gear.
They look really good for each other, considering the fact that they are both sidekicks, they both have similarities, and other stuff. Sure cream is 6, but don't any of you know that Cosmo is 8? And sonic X decided to make it a canon couple? Speaking of which, Tails is also 8 years old, or at least in some of the series.. so I don't see why would you give out the reason "SHE'S JUST 6 YEARS OLD! "
This couple is amazing! They side, fight, and help each other together! A lot of people may think they are only work partners and nothing more. But they don't consider the scenes SEGA left for us.
One, Shadow always protects Rouge. He loves her as much as he did with Maria, as shown in Sonic Adventure 2, where Rouge was captured and he rescued her - He thought of Maria's death while at it, and realized he couldn't let that happen to the bat either.
Two, Shadow is one of the only few people Rouge cares about. When the ebony hedgehog was in an unconscious state in Sonic X, Rouge was deeply concerned for him, as Eggman even concluded, "I don't believe it! You're worried about Shadow, aren't you?! "
Three, in Sonic 06, after Omega warned Shadow he was to hunt him in the future, Rouge promised the poor hedgehog she would remain by his side, even if the whole world was against him.
Four, once Rouge released Shadow from the stasis pod, she had accidentally awoken ...more
They're my favorite! Best pairing for me. Shadow and Rouge are even named as a pun of shades of colors. It's like they are intentionally made to be a duo. I love their interactions, dynamic and team work. It's also fun to think that Sonic is Shadow's rival and Rouge is Amy's rival. It's like they are the opposite of each other.
While Sonic and Amy is viewed as a cute romantic approach, Shadow and Rouge's relationship is much viewed in a more mature context since they are older compared to the two. I think ShadowXRouge are created like that to appeal to a much mature audience while SonicXAmy is made to appeal to younger audiences. I really adore how these two were teamed up. Romantic or platonic, they make the best team along with Omega.
In addition, Rouge pretty much demonstrates a different feeling whenever she's around Shadow. She's much more reserved and more caring towards him and Shadow reciprocates that feeling when he's trying to protect her in his most subtle way ...more
I think this ship has some canon potential... Even if they're "just friends", you still cannot deny that Shadouge is hinted many times throughout the series. Why do so many people think it is a crime to ship Shadow with Rouge (who he is of legal adult age and the two interacted towards each other many times, not to mention that Rouge is a flirt), yet it's perfectly okay to ship Cream with Tails when both of those characters are too young yet Tails and Cream never shown any feelings towards each other in any of the games, comics or shows? I smell hypocrisy...
I like this couple because it's a couple that works and it's actually canon. Rouge is a really confident, strong female who's clever and flirty, and Shadow is more of a quiet, strong and reckless hedgehog. I love how they work together, their teamwork is amazing. And Rouge is one of Shadow's closest friends as well. Rouge once said, "Even if the whole world is against you, I will remain by your side." That shows how much she cares for him. Shadouge all the way!
These two characters personalities intertwine so perfectly that it's impossible for me to not agree with this pairing. Though they never interact in the games that doesn't mean that it should just be thrown to the side as a fake pairing. This pairing it perfectly legitimate and has a reliable fan base to keep it going.
I think this is such a great couple... Blaze and Shadow would be perfect! It's a shame they've never gotten to really interact in the games. In the Archie comics, however, they have to work together and it's great! This is my favorite sonic couple!
For all those people not liking Shadaze because they don't know each other very well in the Archie comics they actually fight together to take down Metal Sonic (and also fought over the Sol Emeralds) but they make a really great team!
Totally agree. Plus, I like the idea that Shadow and Blaze are Silver's parents.
I think of them as Ying and Yang, I don't know WHY! It's not a good example but, I like the way Shadow's hair sticks up, and Blaze's hair sticks down :D They both don't smile () They both have a similar past, incredible power, and anti-social, BUT THEY WOULD ROCK! XDDD
You know, ship Sonamy is normal because Amy has a crush on Sonic but, in the same time Sonic has a crush on Sally. Sonally is corfimed in the comic so why not Shadamy?
Shadow is the classic guy that lives in bad memories and regrets, Amy is the opposite, she lives the present and she wants to become more than what she is.
She is the lightness and he is the darkness. I hope there will be many more scenes of them two, both in the cartoon and in the comics.
In the end, if you don't like this couple it's ok; but don't say that the fans of this couple are idiots!
A charming and lovely couple. Their personalities go well together and they have the chemistry and realism that I look for in a couple. Amy represents light and dreams and Shadow represents dark and reality. Ying and Yang. They have the emotional and psychological connection and they COMPLETE each other. So mysterious and passionate... But so tragic and beautiful.
Guys, Shadamy is unrealistic, and I understand that. It shouldn't be a reason to be mean to the supporters. Just like sonadow is unrealistic, it's still nice to make them a couple, because in the world of fandoms there is no facts and logic as to why a couple can't be a couple. I understand the way you think, and even though I support shadamy, I know it's never going to happen, but it's nice to picture them together.
Shadamy is a beautiful couple. In the comics Ian Flynn somehow supported the couple. This is because Amy and Shadow made Silver who will become a hero and save his future also Sonicx Sally King and Queen although there is a lot a evidence for Sonamy in the games and cartoons Sonic was only being friendly to Amy and saving because of the way she treated him but the comics is more info
Opposites attract. Take Batman and the Joker for example, they're very different yet completely obsessed with each other. I use them because I'm pretty sure everyone knows who they are. Seriously, though why should a personality/power difference destroy their relationship? They deserve to be number one!
People often say this couple doesn't work out because 1: Silver is from the future, and Blaze is from a different dimension (and since Sonic 06 was removed from the timeline, they don't know each other) and 2: Their personality contrast wouldn't work out. The distance and difference between the two is actually what I like about that pairing. Silver is the emotional one, Blaze is the rational one. Even in Sonic 06, that's what keeps them together. Given that they both kinda freely go between worlds/timelines respectively, they can probably work something out to still be together. Keeping a distance relationship is a pretty good show of love (and I doubt Blaze really gets to date anyone in her own world. She's royalty, her parents are probably saving her for an arranged marriage to gain political power. Monarchy sucks).
Also, in the DS version of Sonic Colors, it shows that they both seem somewhat familiar with each other, and they're seen talking to each other at the end of ...more
Blaze is Shadows girl. I ship them the same reason people ship Shrek and Fiona. Shadow is scary on the surface, but is truly broken, and mistreated at heart. Blaze is also quite serious, but she is friendlier than Shadow. I overall like the idea of Silver being the son of Shadow and Blaze from the future. I first heard that concept in a reply to a comment of a work I read on AO3, in which the guy spoiled for me when I thought something else was gonna happen. Shadaze for the win, with Silver as the son.
Silver and Blaze work so well together how could they not get together. There colors look great next to each other and they both have yellow eyes and there personalities are perfect for each other. They are like a match made in haven. Not to mention how cute they are together, you don't get any cuter then
Silver x Blaze
Ya, best one. Also, they should just fire Storm, after all, he is the one getting in the way of their relationship. For example, Jet and Wave were in their ship talking, then Storm storms in and tells them that e got defeated. At least Storm isn't in the Rio 2016 Olympics, but Jet and Wave aren't in the same sport together.
It's a nice couple, really. But I just found out they are brothers and sisters! Siblings, people! If you guys don't believe me, search it up.
Jet is 14,Meanwhile Wave is the same age as Rouge: 18.
People don't forget about the others!
I adore this couple! It's been my OTP for a long time and I think that they're cute together! Vector seems to care a lot about Vanilla and Cream and I just hope that Vanilla gives him the chance to be her boyfriend.
Now a few of you might say that Vector and the rest of the Chaotix beat up Cream to get Cheese in Sonic Heroes, but honestly, it wasn't even their fault in the first place. All vector wanted to do was ask Amy a question and Amy, being the bitch that she is, immediately assumes that Vector wants to go on a date with her. Also, if you really think about it, Eggman was the one who told them to do that and we all know how persuasive he can be and really Espio was the one who told Cream to hand over Cheese.
Another thing that I can explain is when Vector takes Cream and Cheese (and Cosmo) home to their mother in Galactic Gumshoes. It looked to me like something that an overprotective father would do for his daughter and I just found that absolutely adorable, it ...more
I love these two together (with Cream and Cheese). The only sad thing about this relationship is Vanilla's voice actor in the English Dub of Sonic X, I would've liked it better if Emily Mortimer (voice of Sophie Hatter from Howl's Moving Castle) voiced Vanilla.
I really love this couple, a lot. I like how Vector acts like a second father to Cream. Vector is the perfect father for Cream, I also loved seeing Vector and Vanilla together in Sonic X.
No no no Vector is not dating Cream's mom that's weird.
They're awesome and super underrated
They look cute together and have chemistry and the two cutest children in the franchise
Very underrated couple
They should be way higher
Oh yes I love those two together!
I beg you! Think about it! Fiona and Scourge? That makes just as little sense as Sonic and Sally. Sorry. Scourge and Fiona do not go together! I prefer Scourge and Rosy. They are both hedgehogs and fit together perfectly. Even the character. They're both crazy. Fiona is a Fox and She and Scourge makes no sense as a couple
Come on people this couple is awesome all you guys are forgetting the real Sonic couples like this one this is my third time putting couples on this list
A great ship
Yeah no yuck.
Tikal is like the female version of Amy to knuckles but at the same time they are probably too much alike.
They are better than Shadow and Tikal
How about Tikal & Waluigi?
This couple is awesome. Much better idea than to pair Tails with Cream or Marine with Ray, that's for sure.
How is this so low? It should be way higher. Tails and Marine are so beautiful together. They have almost the same interests, and their colors match perfectly together. Marine is beautiful and shy and Tails is shy and quite handsome, when you think about it. They go tgether so great and were meant tobe together.
Third girl I would put with Tails but its ok
How about Marine the Raccoon x Yoshi?
Marine the Raccoon puts her big, bulbous thigh up Yoshi's giant, bulbous nose w/ eggs & snot overflowing.
My favorite weird couple! Marine seems to be the only thing that can tame the evil
Of Tails Doll and they nice couple. I got this couple from watching Sonic Paradox on
YouTube where Tails Doll and Marine came from on.
Marine having a Tails... doll would be funny.
I don't get this couple
Makes no sense.
Sorry, just Mind me a sec *squeals*
Ok, now that I'm finished fangirling, I just wanna say they go perfectly together! They are both hedgehogs, what could go wrong?! They are so hot together, so whoever says this is gay, is ridiculous. Who cares if they are two guys, they can love who they want!
SONADOW! 4! Ever!
Dude. What's wrong with rivals' attraction to each other? They're our favorite hedgehogs (not meaning for Silver to be left out) but COME ON. Don't go around hating every couple that's not your OTP. I accept every couple, and Sonadow just so happens to be my favorite.
The best ship of all of them. Their chemistry is just too good even though they argue a little bit.
All in all I like them very much as a couple but them being close friends is also enough for me.
Personally I don't see what you guys are so weirded out by, this is probably my favorite ship. So what if they are both males? Love is love no matter who is with who! Judging people by their actions is so saddening...
The reason people don't like this ship is not because it's gay, but because Sonic and Shadow hate each other.
Not a good couple. They never even met. Tails on the other hand, Marine met him, but she never met Ray anywhere.
It's a good couple
The second cute
This Is MY FAVE SONIC COUPLE IT'S PERFECT!
Adorable! Amy was Silver's first friend they are both jolly, friendly, helpful, and cheerful - Does that not sound good?!
I don't know I like this couple but it just my big brother like this couple. So I follow him..
This is my favorite couple they are so cute!
Better than Sonamy! Plus, Amy needs therapy.
Thanks for the opinion appreciation accepted for number 7 the reason I don't like charmyxsaffronn is because not there a bad couple I just don't like saffron I feel the only reason she's in the comics is to be for charmy cause there both bees I also this saffron is bland and has little development
anyway thanks appreciate your opinion
These 2 would be cute together this is why
1 there the same age
2 I don't like tails x cream I like tails x cosmo
3 there both pretty energetic kids
4 BOTH ARE SO CUTE
5 they both can be annoying
6 there both so underrated
7 I also don't like charmy x saffron
8 and last but not least both characters need more development and this would help
Agreed to 1,2,4, and 8 (especially 2(disagreed with 7, I have no straight opinion on those 2.))
This is only for the sake of Tailsmo!
If Tikal ever returns as a main character with a major role in anything sonic related I hope to god that she interacts with Shadow to a degree in which both of them will be very curious of one another with how similar they are to someone they loved who passed away, such as Tikal realizing how Shadow is has almost the same world view as her father Pachamac and depending what kind of scenario or conflict in which they are involved she might see Shadow as her second chance of successfully convincing someone who is willing to resort to violent solutions for every problem that such actions will bring more harm than good and there is always another way to resolve conflict without spilling blood or for Eggman's case, sparks or oil. Tikal can also help Shadow cope with his bottled up emotion by helping him find peace with himself and the world around him especially if Shadow becomes concerned over how naive she is due to her strict pacifism since he sees that has weakness that will get her ...more
I honestly prefer Knuxikal. They are more similar, and Shadow's got other business.
I think Knuckles is better with Tikal but its ok
They have no stinkin' chemistry or anything! How?
This couple makes me sick! Maria is a human shadow is a hedgehog bestiality is gross, I'm going to do a little role play ok here's a moron and what they think,
stupid person: aww this is so cute! I love this couple.
Me: I don't like this couple because Maria is a human and shadow is a hedgehog bestiality is gross.
Stupid person: but they love each other!
Me: Maria is dead.
Stupid person: but in the fan fiction I'm reading Maria didn't die!
Me: that's fan fiction SEGA in tend Maria to be shadows best friend and to show the lost and pain in shadow's life when she die.
Stupid person: but he's sad about her death that proves that they were in love!
Me: no it doesn't who wouldn't be sad if they best friend died?
Stupid person: shut up! You don't know what you're talking about!
Me: SEGA isn't going to bring Maria back they only made her to show you what happened in shadow's life.
And that is why I hate this couple.
I'm sorry 2 say but sega has 2 make a maria the hedgehog. I mean shadow is a copy of a real hedgehog so they should really do the same 4 maria. AND SHADAMY IS SO FAKE. So what she saw the tear maria is a sensitive subject 4 him and shadamy is fake because shadow never showed any love 4 anyone after maria, also I'm gonna agree just because Amy mixes up shadow, sonic and silver, ( Amy they look nothing alike get glasses) doesn't mean there a cuople not saying anyone's stupid or anything but shadamy is so stupid it's not even funny. Shadow and maria 4 ever. If anyone can get ahold of sega bring up this idea. please and Thxs
They are endgame people. And stop with the bestiality crap. They are humanoid animals. They are presented as humanoids. They walk and talk like people and act like them too. They wear clothes and everything so yeah no it's not far fetched.
Shadaria, is one of the cuttest couples I have ever seen. She was literally the reason he was created.
They shared a really close relationship. They were always together, no matter what happened, and Maria even gave her life to Shadow, so he could survive!
Some people say that because of Maria being dead, this couple wouldn't work. But she can still come back to life if you see any fanarts or fanfictions.
Other say it's because of other couples, but they barrely see one thing. Shadamy: why does Shadow likes Amy? because she reminds him of Maria. Shadouge: why does he likes her? because she reminds him of maria. Shadikal: why does he like her? (even though they never met) because she reminds him of Maria. And even sonadow! Why does Shadow likes Sonic? Because he reminds him of Maria!
every couple you find, that has Shadow in it, will bring you exactly to Maria. everything, brings back to Maria
And this couple is the cuttest couple ever!
