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

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 Pacman & Mrs. Pacman

Obviously! Pig don't fly!

10 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?

The Contenders

11 Commander Sheppard & Miranda Lawson - Mass Effect
12 Juliet Starling & Nick Carlyle - Lollipop Chainsaw
13 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

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.
