Top Ten Naruto Couples

The Top Ten

Sasuke x Naruto

Naruto and Sasuke had more ship moments. Naruto and Hinata's love was cute but lacked communication in the beginning. Sakura just seemed like some persistent fan girl. She chased and chased him. She did not bring Sasuke back. Naruto fought to go get that boy. If he did the thing that his brother did to him, wouldn't that put her in a sister relationship? If it had been Naruto, people would say it was. The girls really have an unrealistic love. The only real thing I see is the guys marrying them just for their abilities to make children and the fact homosexuality isn't accept. They both don't seem to be truly in love with their wives.

Come on people it obvious from episode one that this show is about them and their relationship. I mean those two, care for each other more than anyone else in the show... like seriously people half the show is about one chasing the other come hell or whatever. No one will go through that far for a pure platonic best friends and don't try to said otherwise because the amount of pains both physical and mentally that Naruto when through for Sasuke can only be justify by love, and not just any love because normal everyday love would have given up a long time ago, I'm talking about the delusional kind of love that thinks it can change a person. Plus the only name that comes out Naruto mouth more often than not is you guest it Sasuke. The only reason that they are not together is because the Author need to keep on milking the cash cow and needed Naruto to spawn in order to do it nothing more and nothing less. In reality Hinata is an easily replaceable character and the only reason they ...more

Hinata was the first person to acknowledge Naruto and the only one who brings him out of his despair when he feeling lost two times. There is a reason why they are together and it's because they love each other

I seriously never thought that I would ship these two as romantically but after the final fight you cannot possibly look at me and tell me you don't see the love between them. First of all Sasuke never broke his connection to Naruto he told the sage of six path that he has to cut Naruto down because he still considered him to be his closest friend and rewatching the fight after you see Sasuke feelings it's not hard to put the connection together I mean if some people consider Naruto to be in love with Sasuke what do you think now especially since you know that he felt the same way towards Naruto ever since they were young kids I mean really think about it without Naruto, Sasuke literally had no one else that he cares about, Naruto is the only one that stands in his path of being alone for eternity, He even told Naruto during the fight that he had to fight him because he had to cut him out of his life, Naruto is the one he couldn't stop thinking about when they were little and felt ...more

I feel like Sasuke and Naruto have a really strong bond. There is repeated imagery of the two serving as parallels to one another (like in the Shippuden opening in which Naruto is flung out of water whilst Sasuke is drowining); and as they're both orphans they understand each other's suffering pretty well.

These two always seem to grow stronger both apart, and together. And I feel like especially in Boruto; despite Sasuke leaving again- they remain in regular contact! Sasuke barely even contacts his wife or kid, yet he contacts Naruto? Maybe this is because Naruto is Hokage, but I'm not sure...

Though there were times in which their rivalry became really negative and dangerous- especially when Sasuke's jealousy got the better of him in the later series- and Naruto's desperate attempts to reclaim Sasuke lead to really unhealthy encounters... I still really support this pairing.

There were times within Shippuden in which Sasuke didn't really seem to react to, or ...more

Naruto x Hinata

They were meant to be together from day one and now they are married with kids!

Come on guys Naruto and hinata are awesome together!

I liked this pairing more in Naruto than Naruto Shippuden.

In Naruto, he motivates Hinata to move forward and start fighting for herself more; and she cares greatly for him, helping him out and being by his side. During the OG series, I was rooting for Hinata.

But in Shippuden, I really felt like the relationship became stale. Naruto had so many other things going on in his life (primarily chasing after Sasuke) and had goals, aspirations and dreams.
But what about Hinata? All I saw was her pining over Naruto. Yes, she had become much more strong and confident; but at the same time I felt like her character was reduced simply to 'LOVES NARUTO'.

This in my opinion, is a great shame. I would've preferred if she was an equal standing by Naruto's side, but instead she is chasing desperately after him; even using perilous situations as a means to get closer to him.

Hinata... You don't need to suffer this much for the guy you love. You can find someone who'll ...more

Lets see here, we have a girl who was not noticed/ really accepted by her father, almost got killed by her cousin, yet she is smart, strong, shy, kind, sweet, quiet, and pretty but has little screen time with her lover (but the relationship is still pretty clear) or to prove she is all of these things and a boy where he loves ramen, loud, super strong, went through a sad childhood with him having no parents, he is also cute, sweet and pretty funny. I think opposites attract and in this case they did! Hinata and Naruto are really meant to be here; I mean the creator of Naruto even said himself Hinata is one of his favourite female characters in the series(as well as mine! ). And Naruto is obviously going to end up with the creators fave female character; it's just commons sense. Plus I think if people got to see more screen time with them they would see that they are just really cute together! And Hinata is not a stalker- she is just super shy, you can't possibly mistake that for being ...more

Sasuke and Sakura

This is one of the worst anime shippings ever.

...WHY!? This couple makes no sense. In the first part 1 they made more sense (even then there wasn't much besides Sakura's pre-teen obsession like he was an Emo Justin Bieber) but come part 2 there was nothing. Literally, anytime they were on screen together he was either ignoring her, insulting her or attacking her. They are not a healthy couple from either perspective. From Sasuke's he has this girl that he hasn't shown much romantic interest because he had only one thing important to him. She's been obsessed with him since they were pre-teens for only shallow reasons and excepts something more from him when he literally showed nothing towards her and there is no reason for her to lovehim. Sakura's part she hasbeen chasing this boy who has been emotionally and physically distant from her for years and when she's with him, he shows that he couldn't care less if she lives or not. How is this healthy? How is this romantic? Why because he gives one apology after all the stuff he put ...more

Okay at first it was only for shallow reasons but it developed into more. And Sasuke had every reason to be "emo". I don't really feel like explaining to another person who probably didn't even pay attention to most of their moments but I would appreciate it if you could comment on something without insulting the characters just because you don't agree with it. I'll respect your opinion but you should learn to respect other people's opinion as well.

You know I don't think this ship is that bad. Sure it could've had more development and stuff but you can fall in love with someone for no reason at all. It just sort of happens. And Sasuke protected Sakura a lot, her childhood crush who she thought of as cute. He broke someone's arms for her and they've had their moments. That one chapter at the chuunin exams where she doubts herself, Sasuke reassures her. He also taught her not to be so childish and ignorant to other people's feelings when she blamed Naruto's behaviour on him not having parents. I believe it was little moments that made her fall in love with him. She noticed that something was up with him too when he was so angry and upset. And she has saved his life a couple of times. Sasuke also did care about Sakura, he was just going through some serious crap and romance didn't fit in his life at that moment. I believe he thanked her for all the memories she's given him and for loving him. Not all love is based on the guy being ...more

Sakura never loved Sasuke. She was obsessed with him. That's why when he left she talked about how SHE would be affected. How SHE would feel. How SHE would cope. She never considered Sasuke's feelings. Her bond was never as strong with Sasuke's like Sasuke's was with Naruto's. It's just a horrible ship altogether.

Minato x Kushina

Even though we didn't see this ship too much, all the scenes were so ADORABLE. Not just that, but Minato was always nice to Kushina and in general it is an amazing ship.

How is this not higher on the list! They're absolutely beautiful together! And just think, without them there would be nothing!

These two just have such a warm vibe. They're wonderful together.

How can you not love this couple?!?!

Temari x Shikamaru

The only Canon couple that made sense.

The only couple that felt natural sakura and Sasuke was toxic as hell Naruto and Hinata did the whole "girl has an obvious crush but the boy ignores it til the last second" which gets old fast and everyone got to together because reasons but these built off of mutual respect for one another which then blossomed into a great romance this honestly the only couple in serious that made complete sense in the end plus their kid is the only good part of boruto

These two are the only couple that made proper sense. They are like made for each other. Their relationship is so mutual and they also have really good chemistry. Another good thing is that the two of them are very good strategists and they can understand each other's ideas very well. Shikamaru hidden clearly brings out how well the couple are matched. They are AWESOME!

they pare up so well ones lazy and laid back while the other is hostile but caring. Its awesome and I love it.

Neji x Tenten

In my opinion I think Neji and Tenten are the CUTEST couple in Naruto. There always together. Wherever you turn you always find them next to each other. Tenten respects Neji a lot. When Neji was a jerk and always brought people down he didn't bring Tenten dreams down when she said she wanted to become like the Legendary Sannin, Tsundae. When Neji would always say women aren't as strong as men shonobi Tenten would always tell him he was wrong and he wouldn't fight back after she told him. I also don't think Hinata and Neji are a couple. Why? CAUSE THERE COUSINS that's WHY! ITS DISGUSTING. I also think Lee and Tenten aren't a couple because there like brother and sister. But Naruto and Tenten are not a couple. Just no. I also think Tenten deserves more screen time. She barely gets attention!

Beautiful they probably would have been married except Neji dies!

there team mates so they had a lot of time together and I just see it.

I don't know if it is just because I've never read the manga, but I've never seen these two together. Sure they spent time together but they were teammates. I feel like Neji and Tenten were more like friends and teammates.. The only solid evidence for this shipping is in the tsukuyomi dream she had, and that was AFTER Neji died. I don't know for sure though cause Tenten didn't get enough screen time, and what little she had honestly told us she could secretly love ANY character in the Naruto. But I do think tenten had so much potential as a character and I am sad that her only strong moments were in filler episodes.

Kakashi x Iruka

The arc in which Kakashi and Iruka argued over whether Team 7 should participate in the Chunin Exam or not gave me chills.
These two bond so well over the team, they're like Team 7's parents!

It'd be such a cool pairing...

This should be higher this is one of the cutest ships in my option

They have about as much sexual tension as Sasuke and Naruto

Perfect for each other...

Asuma x Kurenai

I liked the mature nature of their relationship. It's subtle but there are scenes in which their care for each other is apparent.

It's a shame what happened, I would've loved to learn more about these two!

This could be the first pairing I've seen from the whole Naruto series I have watched

They should be higher

This is so adorable.

Gaara x Rock Lee

I actually really like this couple even though Gaara would be better with Sasuke

Hypothetically they are good for each other. There may be a lot of opposites in their characters, but these two can make for a really cute ship.

Was this really a ship? I can't breathe! I don't know why but I think I like this ship

Such a cute ship oh my god. They go together too perfectly.

Naruto x Sasuke

I love the pair together an I still don't see why they aren't together in the series

Ha! I love how sasunaru is second most popular with a bunch of comments on it but when narusasu comes into play everyone's just like, 'nope.'

Hot pairing made even hotter with Naruto being the seme

It makes more because sasuke is not really the loving type, that is not really seme

The Contenders

Yahiko x Konan

YES, JUST YES! Even though there wasn't too much featuring in the series, every time it was featured, IT WAS SO FRICKIN ADORABLE. They both love each other,(even though they haven't really admitted it ;-;), and they've known each other since they were kids. I SHIP THIS SO HARD.

This is the most beautiful pairing in the entire series...why is it so down

This pairing is AWESOME.

Love his so much

Naruto x Shikamaru

Cute, because Naruto is so "troublesome! "

Upvote because any other ship with naruto is better than him with sakura. I hate the nice guy syndrome. People should be with who the like and truly understand as a person

Ummm... What? Is this really a thing?

Why, just why?

Boruto x Sarada

How are they not the perfect couple? They are a mixture between the top 3 pairs of the Naruto show! 1.The SasuNaru pairing- they have a relationship much like their fathers. Their different personalities cause them to clash and argue. Though just like with Naruto and Sasuke, the two protect each other and watch over each other. Their bond cannot be described with words. They bring out different sides to each other. The 2.NaruHina pairing- um, hello? Sarada actually did the whole watching over Boruto thing just like Hinata. She watches over him and when he accomplishes his goal, she gets really happy! That's what Hinata used to do. And in chapter 700, we see Sarada following Boruto once again.3. The SasuSaku pairing- when Sasuke was in the village, one thing you always saw, where there was Sasuke, there would be Sakura and vice versa. They were always at each other's side, fighting together and protecting each other. They stood together all the time. We see this with Boruto and Sarada ...more

I guess I mean let them for Naruto and Sakura the early season ship!

Awesome couple with better setup and chemistry than any others

I absolutely love this couple. They're my favorite so far. It's obvious they both like each other and their development so far is perfect. Also their characters are written well and their personalities actually go pretty well together. My favorite moment with them is when Boruto chases her on the ship. It's so cute. Like honestly so far it wouldn't make sense for them to not be together with all their moments and the little hints.

Shino x Kiba

My OTP in the series. They are just perfect for each other. Always beside one another. They should be higher on the list...

Naruto x Ramen

Have you ever read that book "The Giving Tree"? I think of Naruto and his relationship with Ramen quite like this. Ramen has such a significant role in Naruto's characteristics and without ramen, I doubt the Naruto we know would be the same.

Ramen was there by Naruto's side when nobody else was. Ramen lead him to Ichiraku, the one restaurant that didn't discriminate against Naruto for his tailed beast.

Ramen provides comfort for Naruto on such a deep and profound level.

Beautiful. Sasuke move out of the way ramen is here.

This made me happy. And I agree.

Tsunade x Dan

I think these two are just so perfect together. Tsunade was so sad after he died, and you can really tell they loved eachother.


Neji x Naruto

I only support because Hayate and his Anbu girlfriend aren't on the list and because I've seen Episode 3 of Rock Lee and his Ninja Pals.

Naruto has a thing for the hyuugas


Was this because of Naruto SD ep40?

Obito x Rin

its sad that Rin had to die and its even sadder that she friend zoned Obito because I really saw it.

So cute whyy did she have to die why did Obito have to be evil I mean he is good in the end but still

First of all, Kakashi is not stupid. Rin asked him to kill her. He was only doing what he was asked to do. He was heartbroken too so don't go blamin him. Blame the ninjas who surrounded them. Anyone BUT Kakashi-Sensei

ObiRin is the most romantic ship in the whole series. Obito did everything, EVERYTHING, just to see Rin again, and I don't think enough people understand what that means. And what was even more beautiful, Rin forgave him without a second thought.

Gaara x Ino

Honestly, I think this couple is one of those illogical couples where you're just like, "Whaaa?! "

Gaara is a boy who never knew what love is and ino is a girl who has a crush on sasuke they are completely different but they look so good together this is my favorite couple

This is the best couple ever because gaara don't know what love is and ino is in love, they are completely opposite of each other yet they make such a good looking couple

They would have made a great balanced couple. Would have loved to see this blossom. Sounds a bit odd, but I think this could have happened.

Sai x Ino

The handsome and The beautiful

They get married!

Should be arleast no.5

Cute couple

Shikamaru x Ino

This would make sense

A lot cuter with ion than temari

Nah Ino's better with Sasuke

Nah ino better with gaara

Kakashi Hatake x Mei Terumi

Both of them would be a better couple. Hope both have feeling to each other.

They would be hot couple

They should be higher here! I really wish they were canon

Aw I wish this was cannon

Naruto x Sakura

To be honest, I had been constantly hoping that this ship would become canon. I see from other peoples point of view of why Naruhina happened but it just didn't seem right at all.

First of all Hinata and Naruto barely even communicated with each other, so I don't understand why they got together in the first place. Sure maybe Hinata had a crush on him for like forever, but he showed no signs in returning her feelings.

Secondly, the paring Naruhina seemed to sudden for Naruto to just suddenly return her feelings like that. I mean like there is no way that it's possible for someone to love someone one minute then to change their love interest the next.

Thirdly, even though in the beginning Sakura was obsessed with Sasuke, Naruto was still in love with her and didn't pay enough attention to it to make him lose hope. I don't believe Sasuke deserves Sakura after all he put her through, I really believed he would get with Karin but sadly that didn't happen.

I ...more

My opinions.
1) I personally don't care if Hinata is shy or not, but her and Naruto had almost NO CONTACT in the beginning of the series and suddenly they should get married?
2) Naruto was in love with Sakura(who totally deserved him because of how long he'd been there for her) but then just decides to give that up for another girl?
3) Sauske has treated Sakura terribly. This is showed in the way he treats her and just blows her off like she is nothing more than a fly.
4) Sakura and her obsession over Sauske is like my obsession over bieber when I was like 7, complete and utterly stupid.
5) Sakura and Naruto should've gotten together especially since they have been together for practically the WHOLE ENTIRE SERIES, your telling me that they don't have feelings for each other?
6) I feel like the creator is trying to make up for it by putting the pairings in Boruto, but by now it's honestly too late, I believe the series took a turn for the worst.
7) I know it's a ...more

I really hate how people are saying Naruto deserves better... what Sakura doesn't, Sakura was annoying and not too strong at first and was obsessed with Sasuke. Though she then became strong mentally and physically, in the end Sasuke and Sakura ended up together but don't you think she deserves better Naruto... Naruto was always there for her If she would have opened her eyes she would have realized it before it was to late. I feel Sakura x Naruto is better than Sakura x Sasuke because she also deserves better Sakura is the same as many girls not perfect. Besides whenever Naruto and Sakura fought it was funny. Though I argue with all this they are NOT my number one ship.

Sakura: Naruto does not love sakura
Kishimoto: Naruto does not love Sakura.
Naruto: I love Hinata
It is in canon he doesn't love sakura and never did. whats there to make an argument if this is just a plain fact?
His "crush" was comedic there was nothing deep. He faced numerous rejections. Did he cry? NO Was he depressed for days? NO. he didn't care. It was not important to Him. Sakura has always loved sasuke. She stated it numerous times. She cries for him always wants his attention ONLY. This couple does not make sense. Thet have zero chemistry.
I would like to advicr these people that sharing panel time does not mean development because they share panel time being put on the same team by the academy. There's nothing special about it. Naruto and Hinata Had Exclusive romantic development. And they should also re read the manga because all their so called development is just talking about sasuke.
Naruto nerver said he loves sakura like these fans claim. Actually sai ...more

Pein x Konan

I love Konan. Being the only female akatsuki member she was bound to have lots of pairings, but I think Peins the best because he's so mysterious, yet they seem to get along fine, and it seems that she's the only one that understands him.

They should be higher too, I mean they're connection was real powerful and cute I mean I cried when they all died

Konan is the best Naruto girl, and Pain is so handsome and amazing! They're perfect couple!

You mean yahiko and konan right cause they should be in the top 3.

Sasori x Deidara

Their debates over the 'true form' of art were so amusing. These two had a really fun dynamic.

But Sasori's like almost 20 years older than Deidara. (look it up I'm not kidding)

They're beautiful. I was so heartbroken when I saw sasori's death. Literally the cutest couple. I SHIP! And it shall sail.

It was just adorable how they fought like a married couple
