Most Overrated Fictional Couples


The Top Ten

1 Edward Cullen & Bella Swan (Twilight Saga) Edward Cullen & Bella Swan (Twilight Saga)

Terrible couple. - Goku02

As dbz fan this is my relationship goal

At least bella doesn't edowardo-kun

I agree this is a terrible couple. Vampires supposed to be bloodthirsty monsters who eventually get slain by a vampire hunter, not a sparkling pretty boy that captures the hearts of tons of insane fangirls.

Then again, I don't care for Twilight myself. Even though the author is just doing her job.

Also, great that you add images to every entry to this list. :) Keep adding more images.

2 Eren Jaeger and Levi Ackerman (Attack on Titan) Eren Jaeger and Levi Ackerman (Attack on Titan)

Why is this so popular?! There was never anything remotely romantic between them. Makes zero sense. And the fact some fangirls can ACTUALLY believe this can ever be canon is just absurd. - Tia-Harribel

Eren and Levi could NEVER be a perfect couple. I really don't know why exactly why they're so popular with fangirls but for whatever reason they have for this, they could possibly be wrong. This is illogical, and I bet a majority of people could agree.

Why can Ereri be so popular? I've watched Attack on Titan and I just don't get why anyone could like this ship. I don't like yaoi in general, furthermore, this ship makes literally NO sense. Like, at all. - Goku02

Ih sucks lets see if the obsssess with their downvote this with fake ips

3 Zuko and Katara (Avatar: The Last Airbender) Zuko and Katara (Avatar: The Last Airbender)

I see the huge amount of fans that still ship this pairing, and that they even really thought that it was going to be canon (how on earth could they have come to think this? ) and I'm astonished, and, again, I'm amazed at the self-deception of fans.

They hardly had any interaction until the last season and even so their fanbase shipped them since the start of the series.
It's a couple mostly based on the look of the characters. They wanted that Katara, their self-insert, was with a cool and attractive boy and not with Aang, who looks too young, even though he is only 2 years younger than Katara. I'm not an Aang x Katara shipper, I don't mind at all that pairing, but at least Aang relationship with Katara is a meanigful one, and not the superficial Zuko and Katara, that probably was given more screen time in the last season to pandering the fanbase. I detest the ships that become so popular when they are based on practically anything.

People can't accept the fact that kataang is canon

No. Just no. Aang and Katara were meant to be since the beginning! Their relationship grew as the series went on, and I could see Katara and Zuko as friends, but not a couple... Zuko was meant to be with the girl who crushed hard on him since childhood (I can’t remember her name...) also, why would you ship them? They barely interacted until the later seasons...

4 Ichigo and Rukia (Bleach) Ichigo and Rukia (Bleach)

Ichigo and Rukia, Zuko and Katara, Harry and Hermione, all of them popular pairings that were only in their fans's imagination, all of them with rabid fans who only mind about their pairing, all of them in the topten of overrated pairings, as expected. I would include Naruto and Sakura, but here at least Naruto had romantic feelings for Sakura.

They are just friends... And they've had their own families and children as well. - Goku02

Their fans really believe that Bleach is Ichigo and Rukia's love story, what

To know that its fandom is going to be salty forever is a very great satisfaction

5 Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala (Star Wars) Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala (Star Wars)

Most people don't like this couple. - clusium

I truly deeply love you...*facepalm* - RoseRedFlower

6 Naruto Uzumaki and Sakura Haruno (Naruto) Naruto Uzumaki and Sakura Haruno (Naruto)

Hate this! No-one deserves to be shipped with Sakura. They would have to suffer their whole lives. - Goku02

Why u delete my comments huh?

Get this bad couple to the top 3 where it belongs

If anything this couple is very underrated.

7 Harry and Hermione (Harry Potter) Harry and Hermione (Harry Potter)

I thought they'd get together when I first saw Sorcerer's Stone (this was before all the books came out mind you) but I never 'shipped' them. I just thought they would happen because he was main boy and she was the main girl. I'm glad JKR chose a different route, but the movies really ruined people's perception of their relationship. They should never have been a thing. The movies gave them way too many moments. I blame the writers (plus Dan and Emma had some chemistry and that's not really their fault but I digress)

They weren't even canon, but their fans suck. They were never even attracted to each other. I can understand why people ship them a little in the movies (to some extent) but in the book? Come on. Dan and Emma have chemistry but book! Harry and book! Hermione have nothing at all.

Man, I'd rather like the idea of Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny nothing more than only just friends and that's it. Them as couples are more like siblings ever since both Harry and Hermione are equally sibling-less while Ron and Ginny are siblings.

I will never understand why people shipped this pairing, at least in the last books. It was so obvious they saw each other as just close friends, and that Hermione had romantic feelings for Ron since the fourth book

8 Ash Ketchum and Serena (Pokemon) Ash Ketchum and Serena (Pokemon)

This is totally one-sided. In the end, Ash is too dense to be shipped with anyone. - RisingMoon

This ship is nothing but complete retarded garbage. I swear, I hope those writers who made Serena kiss Ash in the final episode get sent to the Land of the Forgotten from the movie The Book of Life. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Question: would she be stuck at her current age for two decades plus just like Ash if they stayed together?

A dumb guy with a even stupider girlfriend

9 Sasuke and Sakura (Naruto) Sasuke and Sakura (Naruto)

F disgusting

Sasuke: I'm going to call you annoying twice, try to destroy your home, try to kill your friends, try to kill you and I'll leave you with my child for such a long time that I won't even recognize her.
Sakura: Kay. - RoseRedFlower

10 Spencer & Maeve (Criminal Minds) Spencer & Maeve (Criminal Minds)

Watched them and I just thought it okay. If we got more interaction out of them, maybe I would have liked them more. But we didn't. - RoseRedFlower

The only difference between that whole waste of half a season and the average "Mary Sue" romance fanfics was that it ended with her much-too-overblown "tragic" death instead of a lavish wedding or the birth of a baby girl/twins/quadruplets.

The Newcomers

? Nico Yazawa and Maki Nishikino (Love Live! School Idol Project)

The Contenders

11 Kirito and Asuna (Sword Art Online) Kirito and Asuna (Sword Art Online)

This is couple is shoved in my face


12 Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks (Harry Potter) Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks (Harry Potter)

If one more person insists this is true love I will get really violent

13 Jack and Rose (Titanic) Jack and Rose (Titanic)

The most annoying thing about this couple: those who love it cry too much over the fact that Leo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are not, never were, and likely will never be a couple in real life.

Isn't there enough room for Jack? And there are many people lying around there, so why don't climb on another raft instead? - Goku02

I fail to find anything romantic about this couple. It's just as cheesy as Titanic movie,itself. - Tia-Harribel

14 Wolverine and Jean Grey (X-Men) Wolverine and Jean Grey (X-Men)
15 Bucky and Steve (Captain America) Bucky and Steve (Captain America)
16 Anna and Kristoff (Frozen) Anna and Kristoff (Frozen)

This couple's nothing but Rapunzel and Eugene/Flynn Rider's inferior carbon copies but Anna's nothing but a Rapunzel clone and even Kristoff's a Eugene/Flynn Rider clone, right? This couple's also nothing but forced especially only all because Kristoff was thrown into the movie, Frozen only just to force Prince Hans of the Southern Isles to be a canon villain, especially just another prince charmless who was only just used as nothing but an excuse for those two so called sisters, Elsa and Anna to make up with each other when Anna and Elsa are far much better off without each other since that preferable, favorable brat, Elsa never ever even approved Anna's engagement to Prince Hans of the Southern Isles when that brat, Elsa herself was never ever even worthy to be Anna's sister and she never ever even deserved to be at all and worse, those insufferable, obnoxious rock trolls forced them to be together just like those lazy creators of Frozen did since the script called for it. Worst of ...more

This pairing's nothing but an insult to Disney romance anyway, especially the inferior carbon copies of Rapunzel and Eugene from Tangled, agreed with me?

Man, those writers of Frozen could've at least properly rewrote Prince Hans of the Southern as another canon anti hero like Elsa but no, instead they just had to be forcefully portrayed him to be a real villain, especially another prince charmless who's only just used as nothing but a wanted excuse for those two so called sisters, Elsa and Anna to make up with each other when those two so called sisters themselves are rather far much better off without each other since they're more like strangers to each other anyway….

17 Draco & Harry (Harry Potter) Draco & Harry (Harry Potter)

People ship this? - TwilightKitsune

18 Aang and Katara (Avatar: The Last Airbender) Aang and Katara (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
19 Oliver and Felicity (Arrow) Oliver and Felicity (Arrow)

Doesn't she go around kissing the flash in 'The Flash' T.V. series? - Undistinguished

20 Gray and Juvia (Fairy Tail) Gray and Juvia (Fairy Tail)

I have nothing against it, but I agree that it's overrated. No depth whatsoever, one sided, and can be regarded as boring. - Goku02

Crazy fan girl loves hot guy. That's it. - RoseRedFlower
