Greatest Video Game Couples


The Top Ten

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

So good it's on here twice. No, seriously. Scroll down, it really is on this list twice.

If by "disgusting" you mean "literally timeless" and by "sucks" you mean "is awesome", then yes.

So disgusting together? Sucks? You're looking for Samus/snake, darling.

Literally transcends time

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

Yes! Now forget that Snake/Samus malarkey!

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 Mario & Princess Peach - Super Mario Bros.

What has Peach done that caused people to hate her? Sure she's a damsel in distress but she's a sweet girl. - Pinkarray

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.

5 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)

Too bad they got divorced

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 Pacman & Mrs. Pacman

Obviously! Pig don't fly!

8 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

9 Dom & Maria Santiago - Gears of War
10 Commander Sheppard & Miranda Lawson - Mass Effect

The Newcomers

? Kate Alen and Mr. EAD - F-Zero

The Contenders

11 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?

Vito and Joe have been BFFs since childhood.

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

Play Star Fox command and you will know it is true.

15 Nathan Drake & Elena Fisher - Uncharted


16 Meryl & Johnny - Metal Gear Solid 4

These two are the perfect couple in the last game.

17 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.

18 Yuna & Tidus - Final Fantasy

I want this higher please!

What only 27 something is wrong her really wrong

19 Sean Devlin & Skylar St. Claire - The Saboteur

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

A pint and a shag was all Sean Devlin needed and Skylar didn't disapoint.

20 The Prince & Farah - Prince of Persia
21 Anju & Kafei - The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask
22 Cole Phelps & Elsa Lichtmann - L.A. Noire

Yes Elsa was German whore in the world of L. A Noire but she wasn't a Nazi. Cole Phelps had a thing for her which ultimately cost him his family.

23 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.

24 Link & Midna - The Legend of Zelda
25 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.

26 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 "

27 Billy Coen & Rebecca Chambers - Resident Evil
28 Soap McTavish & John Price - Call of Duty Modern Warfare 1, 2 & 3
29 Shulk & Fiora - Xenoblade Chronicles

Honestly my most favorite couple in all of video games. This should be way higher but Xenoblade Chronicles is such an underrated game.

30 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

31 Ness & Paula - Earthbound
32 Quote & Curly Brace - Cave Story
33 Max Caulfield & Chloe Price - Life Is Strange
34 Ike & Soren - Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

If they're not "together", explain why the Spirit battle with Soren in Smash Ultimate involves Ike.

Ike cares an awful lot for Soren, and Ike is the only person Soren cares about at all.

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.

35 Leo Galante & Frank Vinci - Mafia II
36 Eddie Scarpa & Carlo Falcone - Mafia II
37 Luca Gurrino & Alberto Clemente - Mafia II
38 Roach & Ghost - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
39 Sora & Kairi - Kingdom Hearts
40 George Hamilton & Cindy Lennox - Resident Evil
41 Scorpion & Mileena - Mortal Kombat
42 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.

They definitely deserve eatchother

43 Doug & Carley - The Walking Dead
44 Jack & King - Cave Story

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

45 Tidus & Yuna - Final Fantasy X

Touching, likeable, and tragic.

46 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.

I agree I'am the one who posted Sonic and Amy

47 Yuri & Alice - Shadow Hearts
48 Meat Boy & Bandage Girl - Super Meat Boy
49 Toriel & Asgore - Undertale
50 Fei & Elly - Xenogears
