Greatest Video Game Couples


The Top Ten

1 Link & Zelda - The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Wish they had a relationship like this in Hyrule Warriors.

Nope not even close. This was the only game that shows they're in love - Gh_player

It's just really cute the way they hug and almost kiss the are the BEST COUPLE EVER! ZELINK!

Oh. Midna indeed was a bitch in the beginning but by analyzing the subtleties of her, she softens during your epic quest. If you were a person which lost everything, how would you act?. She is ruined by her past, aka the bitch behavior. Nobody will act as if nothing happened.

It's very interesting to see her grow and the sacrifice was not tacked on (except for the inclusion of ganondorf in the story or the bad development of him). The sacrifice felt natural because she was always interacting with the player (joking on you "flirting? ", giving you hints, helping in wolf form...) and, those scenes show something more than just friendship (the desert, the ending, before hyrule castle, not counting hyrule castle). And, Fi is a total failure in comparison, she is worst than navi and I don't get some people hating on midna. The goodbye of Fi IS what I would call a forced scene and some of the reasons why some people don't like companions in zelda games. There are tons of information ...more

2 Chris Redfield & Jill Valentine - Resident Evil

The first RE couple and the most original - Irina2932

Better than Chris and Sheva if you ask me.

3 Solid Snake & Meryl - Metal Gear Solid

I just finished mgs1 a few hours ago, and I have to agree that they deserve top three. The most unusual thing is that you can cause her death, which completely destroys Snake's first real love interest. This also allows the player to decide if they care enough for her to give up the sneak suit that you get for letting her die.

4 Johnny Cage & Sonya Blade - Mortal Kombat

My favorite couple in Mortal Kombat. Sonya is a little brutal but still very hot and sexy. Johnny is handsome guy with great fighting skills and wonderful humor. Oh yes, they have chemistry - Irina2932

They are a better couple than Liu Kang and Kitana and they remind me of Han Solo and Leia (Star Wars) and Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine (Resident Evil)

5 Mario & Princess Peach - Super Mario Bros.

They really are a cute couple. Wish so many people didn't hate Peach.

This couple is not "awful", and I see Caps Girl has found a new target. In any case, this is actually a very sweet couple and only gets hate because of the frightening about of hatred directed at Peach herself.

Okay first of, I rally love this couple it's my favorite. And bowser and peach did not make children the koopalangs were adopted except for he, but his mom is some other woman in the mario comic series. So peach and Mario are the best couple ever. Although peach can be irritating at some times, eh. That won't stop me from loving this couple.

This is a really nice couple, I will always be a Mario x peach fan

6 Liu Kang & Kitana - Mortal Kombat

Probably the most beautiful video game couple ever. Not to mention the fact that they both can kick anyone's... - Irina2932

They look lovely together

I love this couple

7 Leon Kennedy & Claire Redfield - Resident Evil

Many people hate this couple but I disagree. They look wonderfully great together - Irina2932

Better than Leon and Ada, and better than Claire and Steven. Anyway, both Steven and Ada died, so the best option is Claire and Leon, after all. - uoi

8 Dom & Maria Santiago - Gears of War
9 Vito Scaletta & Joe Barbaro - Mafia II

Nothing like a good old fashioned bromance. Joe and Vito look out for one another. Joe the wild loud and reckless one, Vito the calm and smart one. Go Vi-joe.

One of the greatest video game bromances around in recent memory.

The chemistry between these 2 mobsters is priceless. Who needs a short-assed Robin Hood wannabe and his bimbo princess when you can have 2 trash talking gangsters?

10 Pacman & Mrs. Pacman

Obviously! Pig don't fly!

The Contenders

11 Commander Sheppard & Miranda Lawson - Mass Effect
12 Luigi & Princess Daisy - Super Mario Bros.

I have second thoughts on that one. I always preferred them to be single but I'll ship - ParkerFang

13 Juliet Starling & Nick Carlyle - Lollipop Chainsaw
14 Fox McCloud & Krystal - Star Fox
15 Meryl & Johnny - Metal Gear Solid 4

These two are the perfect couple in the last game.

16 The Prince & Farah - Prince of Persia
17 Sean Devlin & Skylar St. Claire - The Saboteur

A pint and a shag was all Sean Devlin ever needed, and Skylar didn't dissapoint.

18 Nathan Drake & Elena Fisher - Uncharted
19 Cole Phelps & Elsa Lichtmann - L.A. Noire
20 Princess Zelda & Link - Legend of Zelda

One of the most unique original couples. Zelda is a great guardian and uses magical fire power. No other princess can. Sheik is awesome too.

21 Yuna & Tidus - Final Fantasy

I want this higher please!

What only 27 something is wrong her really wrong

22 Link & Midna - The Legend of Zelda
23 Anju & Kafei - The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask
24 Tifa & Cloud Strife - Final Fantasy VII

How is this a couple though?! Oh well I guess it is

Screw Cloud x Aeris

"Forever my mom and dad <3 "

25 Soap McTavish & John Price - Call of Duty Modern Warfare 1, 2 & 3
26 Andy Bogard & Mai Shiranui - King of Fighters

Sorry fanboys, but it's been made very, very clear who Mai's heart belongs to, and it's not you, your original character, or whatever other existing character (male or female, from KOF or anything else) you personally prefer over Andy.

27 Alphys & Undyne - Undertale

If you really need even more proof of this, just try to read the Alphys VS Undyne fanfic without laughing. Seriously, I DARE you - xandermartin98

28 Chrom & Robin - Fire Emblem: Awakening

Obviously this can only be canon if "Robin " (or whatever you named the character you play as) is female, but interpret what you will from the chemistry and interactions occuring even when playing as a dude.

It really, really adds to the story when these two end up in love/married. Too bad it can only happen if you're playing as a female.

Before any over-sensitive social justice Tumblrina types chime in, I'm pretty sure that previous comment was referring to the fact that Lucina still has to be born no matter who Chrom is paired with, and neither the game nor real life allow for mpreg therefore Chrom can only canonically end up with a female Robin/Avatar and Lucina can still exist.

29 Billy Coen & Rebecca Chambers - Resident Evil
30 Shulk & Fiora - Xenoblade Chronicles
31 Max Caulfield & Chloe Price - Life Is Strange
32 Scorpion & Mileena - Mortal Kombat
33 Leo Galante & Frank Vinci - Mafia II
34 Eddie Scarpa & Carlo Falcone - Mafia II
35 Luca Gurrino & Alberto Clemente - Mafia II
36 Roach & Ghost - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
37 Ness & Paula - Earthbound
38 Doug & Carley - The Walking Dead
39 Jack & King - Cave Story

It's not called being gay, it's called being FABULOUS - xandermartin98

40 Ike & Soren - Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

"they're just friends" Odd- I think that about Link and Zelda, Mario and Peach, Luigi and Daisy, and Cloud and Tifa. But since they are mixed-gender combos, no one ever invokes that argument with them.

I admit I thought Soren was a woman at first, but once I found out otherwise I didn't think any differently of this pairing.

It's just really, really sweet. And I don't usually ship two male characters together.

I think they're just friends - ParkerFang

41 George Hamilton & Cindy Lennox - Resident Evil
42 Tidus & Yuna - Final Fantasy X

Touching, likeable, and tragic.

43 Sonic & Sally - Sonic the Hedgehog

Pretty useful and cute!

Way underused unlike Amy. Amy is annoying and brags, screams, and humps Sonic. Ok, sonic even Paulina doesn't do that to Mario and she's still loves him. He loves peach. Sonic and Sally are way better if I knew who Sally was.

44 Spyro & Cynder - The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon

I'm surprised I haven't seen much of these two. The relationship they share is deep and unique in it's own way. Granted, the pacing of it in Dawn of the Dragon (and the pacing of the game itself) could have been better but they are still easily my favorite video game couple along with Link and Zelda, and Sora and Kairi.
