The Top Ten

1 Akashi x Kuroko

Ok time to rant.

Akashi and Kuroko are opposites in many ways (except height but that's a taboo area for both of them). I believe that it's these opposite traits that they have make them so perfect together. They balance eachother out.

Firstly, Akashi is someone who simply can't be ignored. If he walks into a room all eyes fly to him. Akashi has a commanding presence that completely contrasts Kuroko's weak and almost nonexistent presence. Kuroko's weak presence causes him to more likely then not be ignored. Most people do not notice him at all until he actually speaks even if he is right next to them. Akashi is the ultimate light to the shadow that is Kuroko.

Secondly, their coloration perfectly balanced out. They are like fire and ice in both personality and looks. Kuroko always wears a cool expressionless mask while Akashi will be sure that you know he's annoyed and has already thought of thousands of ways to get revenge.

Thirdly, Akashi can always ...more

They truly are like ice and fire! Complete opposites, yet so closely connected by their love for basketball. I first began to love this pairing because it reminded me to heart of Ereri, but after I finished the show I grew to love this on a completely different league.

It saddens me that it does not receive the popularity it deserves. Akashi's fire and ferocity needs Kuroko's temperance and coolness to produce balance. Akashi was the one to help Kuroko nurture his basketball talent. I wish Kuroko nurtured Akashi's humanity in return.

Someday. Fanfiction.

I love how genuine Kuroko's and Akashi's friendship and relationship is. They are complete opposites but that never stopped them to fit in or simply belong to each other.

Remember the saying "Opposite attracts"? Well, it's rarely accurate but this ship is a 100% definite representation of it. Akashi and Kuroko, although they mildly interacted, their silent mutual respect and love (as friends or something of higher degree 😏, however you want to interpret it) is so adorable. Might I need to mention the way they silently communicate or how they understand each other without hearing or looking at one another is simply something we cannot over-look as being "teammates." More so, I really support this ship because of how un-tense both of them are: notice how Kuroko isn't as afraid of Akashi unlike the rest of the GoM? or how Akashi has a soft spot for the shadow? Truly, this ship is the best 🙌

2 Midorima x Takao

They're really compatible in both basketball and in a relationship (platonic or romantic). They have such a trusting and unique bond. I think they'd make a great and healthy couple! - KitsuneScarlet

Insert nosebleed here

These two are so cute!

They're my 4th favorite couples in KNB

3 Aomine x Kagami

The best ship ever

The best couples

4 Kise x Kuroko

Gives life a whole new meaning for me.

They're just so cute together. - RampoRampo

Kuroko considers Kise his rival.
Kagami considers Aomine his rival.
200% confirmed.


5 Murasakibara x Himuro
6 Aomine x Aomine

The only one who can love me is me

Because the only one who can understand aomine is himself..

7 Aomine x Kise

They share a friendship and bond no one else can come close to, other than kuroko and aomine. Kise looks up to aomine at the same time aomine sees kise as a great rival and strong player

I think the already have chemistry for each other and I really love this couple so much more than the other one..

They are very best pairing ever. I love them.

I love them so much teehee my OTP

8 Kise x Kasamatsu

Kasamatsu's words brought Kise into the zone. That's so sweet and moving! ;_;

Shipped them ever since the last episode of 1rst season. I love how Kasamatsu is such a good influence to Kise and the way they care thoroughly about each other's well being.
Also, you can see how Kise is an inspiration for Kasa to try harder in his studies and basketball.
Otp forever

Kasamatsu was easily the best thing that happened to Kise after his Teikou days.
Senpai (and Kaijo too, of course, by extension) brought Kise down to earth, after the boy lost himself in middle school.Thanks to his captain, Kise learnt the value of teamwork, experienced the desire of wanting to win with and for his companions, the will to sacrifice himself for his team and also learnt to respect himself, his teammates and opponents.
Kise matured so much thanks to senpai throughtout the series! And I think that Kasamatsu, in turn, developed a huge admiration and respect for Kise's efforts to better himself, haha.
I even think that Kise's fun personality could be a good thing for Kasamatsu, who is always so serious and has a tendency to overwork himself.

My favourite pair from this series!
Kohai and senpai, ace and captain.
They have such a cute deep relationship!
Kasamatsu can see through Kise's bright façades and fake smiles really well and Kise always ends up letting his masks crumble when he's with Kasamatsu.
Kasamatsu is always supporting Kise when he's at his lowest, always prioritising Kise's personal feelings and sense of loss over his own's; and Kise is also very considerate of Kasamatsu's feelings, especially over his losses ("I don't want to see him/them lose again" *flashbacks specifically of Kasamatsu everywhere*, aghdsfadgg), and singling him out in his head.
I'm not gonna lie, Kise's faces every time Kasamatsu makes one of his speeches give me a heart attack!
I would want a relationship like theirs for my own romance

9 Akashi x Mibuchi
10 Akashi x Furihata

The Lion and the Chihuahua >3

The Contenders

11 Kagami x Kuroko

I can't really ship them with anyone else but each other. They are the main bond of this series after all. The light and his fated shadow

They belong together.


12 Aomine x Kuroko

I love this ship so much...I have no words

They are perfect together, Aomine was Kuroko's original 'light', he made some mistakes along the way but I've always felt they belong together. Aomine's really aggressive and Kuroko can always calm him down, people might same that it's the same with Kagami but they were the original! I will go down with this ship.

My otp! I love them so much!

13 Takao x Mibuchi
14 Hyuga x Riko

22 Midorima x Akashi

They are always together in Teiko and I think that they are just so cute together
