The Top Ten
1 Soarin and Rainbow Dash

"This is a kids show! They're straight"

You're insinuating that a same sex pairing would make it less of a kid's show. Many children have same sex parents. Many children are also attracted to the same sex, and get bullied and shunned because of it. Kids like those NEED to see something in a show they enjoy that supports them; something that says "It's ok to be who you are. We support you" The only reason ships such as AppleDash and Bon Bon x Lyra aren't fully canon, is because the writers are afraid to put same sex couples in the show, due to the stigma and reactions they may receive from it; even though such a ship like AppleDash is one of the most logical in the show. Both athletes, both competitive, both stubborn, and also their interactions with each other, such as Rainbow Dash resting on Applejack's back several times, and the many, MANY tail grabs. And most of The Last Roundup episode shows just how much Rainbow cares about her. And the cherry on the top, is their ...more

They are both Wonderbolts, dedicated to flying, and great athletes. Not good enough? Rainbow saved him multiple times, and it's pretty obvious she doesn't act the same around him. In Rainbow Falls, when he said she's the best, she says, "Aww, it was nothing" Totally not like the ego goof RD is. We can see she has a quick moment of realising what she just said, and then adds a boastful comment.

And then she literally wakes Soarin up standing on his bed. Seriously. And then she flirts with Soarin openly Of all the Wonderbolts, she chooses Soarin. And think about it- there is so much more to Rarity then her charm with stallions. She could have pretended to design the clothes or outfit of the Wonderbolts but no- she decides to FLIRT with a fellow Wonderbolt. Come on. It's obvious. Make it canon Hasbro

I dunno why, but I think, among all my friends I have in school, I'm the only one which likes this couple. Well, I didn't told them I like the couple thing Or thinking its fake but pretty much...a badass pony with a wonderbolt? Totally amazing

If my friends found this list, they would vote for flutter and big Mac. No offense, but I don't think they go together. I mean that I don't see them go together that much...dunno much but I think they went together at one time...and plus these 2 match! Somepony that wants to be a wonderbolt and a currently present wonderbolt. See any difference?

I personally like this ship, not because he's a wonderbolt, or because of color or anything, but because of the one party when he is at the gala and buys an apple pie. I know that seems dumb, but I can just see them enjoying eachother's company so much, and the fact that they enjoy the same activities doesn't hurt. I really hope this one will happen!

2 Fluttershy and Discord

They're perfect together but you don't want to make Discord angry by hurting Flutter shy if you do he will destroy you never mess the kind pony that's his friend!

You can't beat these two. They balance each other ever so perfectly. Fluttershy has become more confident and Discord became kinder. Discord is like her strength and Fluttershy is like his heart. I know Fluttershy will die and Discord will out live her but think of it like this. Surely they'll start a family and Discord will be alive to watch his family tree grow. He'll see his kids grow and have kids too. He'll be watching his grandchildren grow and have kids as well. How cool would it be to see all your relatives be born and grow. 1000 years into the future, if anyone related to Discord has questions about their family tree, I'm sure Discord would be more than happy to tell them their family history because he got to see it himself. And who says he won't be able to see Fluttershy? Most people believe when we die we become spirits and Discord is a spirit of Chaos. Maybe when Fluttershy dies she'll be a spirit in another dimension and Discord can visit her and tell her all about how ...more

Fluttershy and discord are perfect! I don't care what anyone says! The reason most people don't like it is that they find the age gap gross? Here's my outlook on it, fluttershy is discords best friend! Wether or not they ever end up together, is totally up to the writers! AND, on top of that! If one day/ ep. Feelings do blossom forth, IF discord is oh so magical, he could make himself age with flutters! I think it would be so. Romantic!... Still, that doesn't stop the haters. And by the way... Dislestia? WHAT? I can't even! Discord has never EVER shown feelings for celestia the way he has for flutters! I feel it's a love triangle! Celestia likes Discord and discord likes flutters! Case closed!

This is my favorite ship of all time and the absolute best ship in mlp there ever was. I like it has number 2 spot. After I had watched the fan fic Bride Of Discord I fell in love with the ship and I realized how much the series hints at it. I really hope it happens. And as evidence, Discord only cared about Fluttershy. Whenever he hears something happened to the main six he is like, "whatever" and then turns into immediate anger when he hears that means something happened to Fluttershy too. He also has weekly tea parties with her. And once he nearly died to make his home suitable for a visit from Fluttershy. Fluttershy also decided to go against what normally likes to save him. It's a really nice ship, and it's practically confirmed already, so I want them to admit their feelings!

3 Pinkie Pie and Cheese Sandwich

HECK, this is the first good couple I saw on this list. Soarin and Rainbow Dash never even met, and they can't be together because Dash isn't a wonder bolt. Big Mac is with CHEERILEE, not Fluttershy. Flash Century is a Gary Sue boyfriend for Twilight. I guess Derpy and Time Twister are okay, but they haven't met, either.
But Pinkie and Cheese Sandwhich...
They are meant for each other. Cheese Sandwich was once a colt that was ignored and bullied by others until he found Pinkie, who taught him to be happy. They can both throw parties and stuff.

No pony understands a party pony better than another party pony! With each other there's no need to explain their randomness, no looks of confusion at the other's antics, no "it's just pinkie being pinkie", just understanding and love and PARTIES AND FUN AND ENDLESS LAUGHS!

They're similar enough to truly understand each other, but different enough that they aren't just clones of each other. Pinkie Pie is more open and friendly, more down to earth. Cheese Sandwich however has a louder, more bombastic party throwing style, but is a bit more detached and has a shy streak. They balance each other out! And despite being just generally perfect for each other, their relationship is not without conflict. Cheese Sandwich is a traveler, he has a literal wanderlust in the form of his cheesy sense, which takes him all across Equestria. Pinkie Pie is the opposite, she prefers to surround herself with close friends, she prefers to have a home. This adds a little bit of much needed conflict ...more

I LOVE this ship so much. When I heard that Pinkie Pie was supposed to be getting a boyfriend, I was disappointed when they said it won't be Cheese Sandwich. They're SO CUTE! Pinkie Pie is the reason Cheese Sandwich is who he is today.

They love party planning, had an outrageous contest just to prove themselves to each other, and they are off-the-walls cray-cray! Need I say more?

Bonus points for Pinkie being an inspiration in the first place.

4 Lyra Heartstrings and Bonbon

I think Lyra x Bonbon, Octascratch, and Derpy x Whooves are my favorite background character ships. And it will never change. So it give this ship a thumbs up. Love it!

I don't know... This is just a pairing... I only think that bonbon likes lyra, but lyra likes pinkie.

Look, whoever says "Oh, they're just friends, blah blah blah" NO. Anyone with a brain can see that.

Best ship ever! I'm not sure why this isn't canon. In slice of life they already act like a married couple

5 Twilight Sparkle and Flash Sentry

I love flash and twilight because they're so cute and I don't care what the haters say about them, my heart tells me that they're made for each other and I hope they go on date, get married and have kids.

It's a good couple. Girl has crush. Guy secretly likes girl. He is in royal guard so he will protect her and can get close to her. Oh boy. This is obvious.

My belief is that since the show indicated they had a crush, and it was not can made people dislike it. It is not a bad ship, but I don't like human flash that much.

I like the idea of Twilight having a love interest, and I just wish they'd develop his character more, which would make this couple more awesome!

6 Rarity and Applejack

They were my first OTP I've ever shipped and you just can't ignore the chemistry between them. Opposites attract, yet they still work great together and are best friends. They have so much shippy moments and quotes together. I love them so much.

Yes boi best one here. I love this since they are so good together and are simple the best characters

Rarijack was confirmed to be canon in "Rollercoaster Of Friendship" and I'm super happy about that. This is my most favorite ship in mlpfim and you can't change my mind

Too often they talk about things they share like traditions, and how they interact when story focused around them is too close for just friends...

Plus they are such a cute couple

7 Spike and Rarity

This is my fave couple forever! They are awesome together! First off just because they're not the same species doesn't mean it won't happen! So what she's aa pony and he's a dragon! He loves her and she is sweet! They can work it out! Besides I'm sure Twilight can use her magic to turn him into a pony cause lets face it I don't think Rarity will want to become scaly! After all she is the neatest and cleanest of all the ponies. I <3 THIS COUPLE!

This should be 1! First of all Spikes little moments with Rarity are very cute. The Spike and Rarity episodes are the best! And Spike loves Rarity much more than Cranky loves Matilda. There a nice couple, too and should really be ahead of fluttershy and Big Mac.

I don't like this one... Spike has an unrequited love for her, but all Rarity does is exploit him for her own gain! So much for generosity. Spike would be better off with someone who would treat him RIGHT

If Spike was a pony or Rarity was a dragon I would probably like this couple. But since ponies and dragons cannot mate this ship can't become canon.

8 Rainbow Dash and Applejack

I ship it. Considering all the hate comments, I'm going to say something positive! Yes, they are both stubborn. Yes, they would fight a lot. But that doesn't make the relationship bad, it just makes it so that they won't ever bottle up their feelings with each other. Applejack would ground Rainbow when she gets too crazy, and Rainbow would make Applejack feel loved and taken care of, instead of Applejack having to always be the one to take care of others.

I feel that both of them share quite a few loves (mostly sports) but I think AJ has a bit to much responsibilities for a relationship at the moment. But I think they have their moments.

Why all the hate on this ship? Is it because it's lesbian? Deal with it guys this ship makes so much sense and it's adorable!

I think that they'll end up fighting a lot, due to their competitiveness.
I don't despise it or hate it... I just think it won't work out. :P

9 Shining Armor and Cadence

I love them too much that I think they could of appeared more and they are the fearless couple as they defend but cadence gets annoyed to easy.

I... This one's a little iffy for me, just like FlutterMac is. I know that they're married and all that crap, but I'm more for TwiArmor and ShiningShy. Hate me all you want, but that's my opinion, and I'm sticking to it.

Whoever posted this ship seriously needs to correct the title. Who the heck is "Shing" Armor? It's Shining Armor.

I'm sorry, but I only put this up here for fans. I watched a video, and now I just don't like this couple.

10 Princess Luna and Discord

I have read fanfics and seen episodes, plus I am making a fanfic for these two. They are both misunderstood, and both deserve a second chance. I do not believe believe that these two are bad, and they just need another chance.

I love this pairing, but the show accurate Discord looks a little old. I like to stylize him so he looks like a teenager. ;) If I could find one good, "young" picture of Discord, I would be happy. Lunacord forever, rock on.

I love this pairing, no one else really does, but hey, I do. I think it goes together well, in a way.

Erhm this is ok, but I would like it more if my favorite ship wasn't fluttershy and discord.

The Contenders
11 Sweetie Belle and Button Mash

I know this couple is SOOO YOUNGER...but I think this ship is way more cuter than the others! Sweetie Belle and Button Mash are really perfect together! If they both married, I think they are going to name their kids "Sweetie Mash" and "Button Belle"

This is my favorite young couple! and sweetie belle blushes when button takes her hoof in don't mine at night!

It's so cute! And there a super cute song for it called don't Mine at Night!

Young love is always cute! And have you SEEN the pictures of them?!

12 Derpy and Time Turner

They're complete opposites, yet so perfect! I think it's kinda weird saying who should marry who, but this is fun. In 'A Slice of Life' I couldn't stop laughing at how Derpy wanted to touch everything when TimeTurner was explaining science

I adore this one. Mainly because it has Derpy and Doctor Whooves in it. But mainly because of Derpy. Then again, who doesn't like Derpy?

Laugh out loud, I think these two are good because they are always spending time together, and I think it would be adorable.

Does this mean Doctor Whooves? Because I love Derpy with the doctor.

13 Starlight Glimmer and Sunburst

Sunburst is really having a crush et her. Here are the clues.
1.Blushing in th episode "The Crystalling".
2.Quote:I mean, if you'll have me.
3.Since Sunburst gets hired as Vice Headstallion l, he will never lose touch.

This appeared! Totally voting for this!

They're so perfect together!

Obviously these two

14 Trixie Lulamoon and Starlight Glimmer

Only # 42? This should be number one easily. They have such a great dynamic and make an absolutely adorable couple. I even had a custom commission plush wedding set of these two made, that is how much I love this ship.

Don't just ship them, marry them!

You can see miles away there is more than just friendship!

They both have bad past and love magic.

I just ship these as friends.

15 Princess Cadance and Shining Armor

I don't see why this couple is so disliked in the fandom, cadence and shining are a loving couple cadence cares very much for shining, and he wants to protect her.

I do not like this. I hate this and this is so awful because they have no chemistry.

Married after all. Really good for Twilight.

Why is this ship repeated?

16 Twilight Sparkle and Rarity

This one was a surprise at first but now that I think about it, it seems like a really good pairing.

They would be adorable together. Spike's too young to be with Rarity. Sorry Spike.

I have read fabrics, and I think these two should be together, however I am sorry if I offended any rarity X spike fans.

Spike is only too young because if he grew up... Well, just watch "Secret of my excess"

17 Fluttershy and Big Mac

The big, strong, silent stallion, with a shy, self-conscious mare, its just absolutely heartwarming. I feel that if they got together it would be a relationship with a long lasting foundation of trust and quiet companionship. Fluttershy likes to hide during things like thunderstorms and Nightmare night. Who better to sit beside her with his big strong presence and make her feel safe. Big macintosh has a fear of not being useful enough and who will make him feel more needed than delicate soft spoken Fluttershy. Yes Fluttershys best friend is his sister but really does it matter? I think Applejack might want them together because she Loves Fluttershy and Big Macintosh. So she would want someone similar for the other. I.E. Each other. Plus Cheerily only liked Big Macintosh because of the CMC's love poison. They were both embarrassed by what they had done and only "Flirted" if you can call it that. In front of the CMC's to embarrass them and shoot the point home that what they did was ...more

This ship doesn't have anything to back it up. People are only shipping them together because they're both shy and I have to admit, they make a cute couple. I don't have anything against this ship, but... Big Mac and Marble Pie are much more obvious.

This is cute, but, I'm not a fan. What did they do to prove they even ARE a couple? I love Fluttershy and Discord the most, because they are friends and they do show their feelings for each other! (I actually think Discord likes Fluttershy! )

Don't like it. Big Mac is a work pony with limited vocabulary, and fluttershy is kind and takes care of animals. There is a difference between being shy, and not talking much. Bad ship, but I do like fluttercord. They write, and again and again, she stands up for him.

18 Celestia and Discord

As a Delistia shipper, I believe it is time to accept our defeat. Face it, we're dieing out as I type. Will these ships go on in our hearts and Fan fiction with fan art. Congratulations to Fluttercord shippers, it's been a wild ride, fighting and debating which ship would be canon and more popular and better. Results don't lie. Even Discord x Luna has beaten us. It's been a fun 9 years and I'm glad I was a part of it.

All Fluttercords are saying they've "Helped Eachother Become Better Ponies" and crap, but, I've NEVER seen Discord help Fluttershy with anything. I just see Fluttershy as a kind of mom to Discord, and she helped Discord in the first place BECAUSE OF CELESTIA! SHE was the one to tell Fluttershy to make Discord a better pony, she didn't decide to take it upon herself to help him, Twilight didn't tell her to help him, not Luna, but Celestia! So you Fluttercords can BUCK OFF!

No, absolutely not, they have shown no actual feelings towards each other in any episodes, plus I don't really see them as a couple. Discord clearly has a crush on Fluttershy and I totally ship those two. Sorry, I'm not a dislestia fan, I'm a Fluttercord fanatic!

OMC (oh my Celestia) YASSS! Sorry gimme a second. I LOVE this ship so much. And it actually makes sense, chaos and harmony! Also Celestia and Discord are both immortal and can live together forever! If fluttercord was to happen (which if it does I'll probably leave the fandom, dig a giant ditch, and just cry while trying to bury myself) what hapoens when fluttershy and their kids all die? Is discord just forever alone? WOW just wow. Clap for all the fluttercords.

19 Vinyl Scratch and Octavia

Nope. This ship must die. In a fire. Along with Nicki Minaj. That's how bad this ship is.

Ok ship. It's good cause they live together, and there's lots of hints they love each other.
But I agree, RiverClanRocks, that Nicki Minaj should die in a fire, and also RiverClan does indeed rock, my oc, Moltentail, lives there.

They're the same, yet opposites!

I think they are sisters

20 Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash

Whether you're against same gender relationships, this is a fan favorite. On fimfiction, the Twidash group has close to 2,000 members. Leaving AppleDash and other mane six pairings in the dust. The only thing I've seen more members for a couple was TwiLuna, with 3,000 members. A lot of the community believe Twilight and Rainbow Dash are the
Most shippable characters! And the romance between the two ponies are bound to be mostly adorable. Disagree to agree, the community loves these two.

I don't know why this is so far down the list, to me this should be cannon. Have you noticed that Rainbow dash only falls into Twilight, and is otherwise a perfect flyer. #TWIDASH

They are more alike then most people think and to me, they always shared a special bond together. TWIDASH forever!

Why isn't the ship somewhere at the top of this list?! I mean come on!

21 Queen Chrysalis and King Sombra

They're both a Match Together. And the villains of MLP,

Queen Chrysalis: Can turn into the same pony like Cadence by using Chrysalis like Butterflies

King Sombra: The king of Shadows, Celestia and Luna battled this Shadow in some episodes or some thin'

Differences: Queen Chrysalis is an Weird Alicorn while Sombra is just a Dark, Black Unicorn.

They are both evil so I can see them sympathize with each other. Chrysalis used to rule over a entire kingdom and so did Sombra

I love it some people say they used to rule together!

No, Luna and Sombra for life!

22 Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie

I honestly think I might have thought that Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie were actually sort of cute! And I really ship it now. I understand why people might not like this ship but it doesn't mean you need to judge!

In the show, I feel that Pinkie is obviously showing her feeling towards her (she is very clingy), and Rainbow is too oblivious to notice...

They are the most underrated fictional couple in media history. They should get together more often when season 5 comes out.

Rainbow dash and pinkie pie are a weird, but cute couple because pinkie pie is funny and rainbow dash is the opposite.

23 Gallus and Silverstream

I find this ship really cute. Sure it's sort of in the fantasy cliche of a poor boy falling in love with a rich princess that's out of his lead. But I can accept that because of the amazing fanfictions I found about this ship. Also there's like only two ships with Gallus. Gallstream and Gallbar, and sense I find homosexual relationships terrible and anyone who supports a homosexual relationship I see that person's existence to be a sin. because of that if it came to a male griffin and male horse or a male griffin and a female hippogriff. I'll gladly take the male griffin and female hippogriff relationship any day. Seriously I don't get why people aren't seeing the sins that hide in a male on male relationship.

Find it a bit funny how these two are the more popular young six pair. I would've thought Yona and Sandbar would be more popular since they are confirmed. But I can see why these two are higher up. They have the Disney or fairytale feeling going on. Silverstream being related to royalty and Gallus growing up in the streets as an orphan. That alone screams Aladdin. Then we have Gallus who is more experienced of living on the streets, has seen a lot in the world and being a trouble maker while Silverstream is this giddy girl who was forced to stay in one place because she was trapped by the Storm King. That's Tangled right there. And now we have Silverstream being a merpony and is fascinated by the world above ... 😂 do I need to say more? Little Mermaid is a classic.

I like how the young six were basically paired up since the beginning. Sandbar and Yona, Gallus and Silverstream, Smolder and Ocellus.

24 Lyra Heartstrings and Pinkie Pie

Laugh out loud, I have always thought that these two liked each other, or at least lyra likes pinkie. If only pinkie would open her eyes and realize love is closer than she thinks.

25 Rarity and Braeburn

NO! For one thing, Rarity is very ladylike. Braeburn is a pony that watches Applejack in Rodeo shows. Rarity would die if she was forced to marry Braeburn. Seriously.

Braeburn belongs with Soarin'!
