Top Ten Overrated Shippings

Mariosprincessesfan
From any animation, game, book, comic or any other you can think of, what is a ship you believe gets too much popularity and people make it bigger than it is. Doesn't necessarily mean you hate or dislike the ship or anything, just that it shouldn't have gotten as popular. Shipping is wanting to see two people in a relationship.

The Top Ten

1 Amourshipping (Pokemon the series XY)

The biggest problem with amourshipping and amourshippers, is that they become stuck on thing that are obviously meant to catch their attention. "Ash and Serena's First Date" and "Ash and Serena getting one at the dance" it's literally JUST a gotcha title and it's representative of how Serena thinks. And they inflate every single instance without any rational thought. SHE considered her being alone with Ash as a "date." And then because he gave her a ribbon, one that wasn't even a real gift. They just take too many things out of context and it's ridiculous. If he talks to her, it's " amourshipping" if he saves her from falling off a damn cliff it's " amourshipping". It's just become incredibly unreasonable.

(Ash & Serena) The only thing it's got going for it in the whole series is the whole childhood friend thing and outside of Pokemon that's been done... a lot. But people make it bigger than it is saying Serena's the first to crush on Ash, but they push aside Macy, Anabel, and Angie just cause their side characters. It doesn't matter. Someone crushing on him won't make a difference as it didn't the first 3-4 times (depending if you want to count Misty). There is also the fact that he had ditched her twice already in the anime. Obviously, it's as one-sided as all the other females that crushed on him. - Mariosprincessesfan

They are not "childhood friends." Why does everyone say that? It's so ' annoying! Gary Oak is an example of an actual childhood friend. He and Ash have known each other since they were really little. Ash and Serena met at a summer camp ONCE for maybe a few minutes and never spoke to each other again. And of course amourshippers overlook the fact that Ash didn't even remember her! That is, until Serena decided to tracked him down like a dog on the scent! She is so pathetic.

I don't care about rants, amour is always my OTP.

2 Makorra (LoK) Makorra (LoK)

(Mako & Korra) From season one I did not like this... Makorra was horribly written I'm sorry. From the awful love-triangle mess to the breakup to the messing of Mako's character from finding his only bro to out over finding Korra to making Korra irritatingly pathetic I DO NOT want. - Mariosprincessesfan

Makorra was such a horrible ship and Mako was such a horrible person. He played with both Asami and Korra's hearts and Makorra was so random and badly written. Korrasami is way better. Why does anyone even like this ship?

Mako is so indecisive on whether to choose Korra or Asami even when he was with Korra

3 Ikarishipping (Pokemon) Ikarishipping (Pokemon)

Yep. The only reason this is shipped is because "opposites attract"

(Paul & Dawn) There was little interaction and even less a positive one - Mariosprincessesfan

What...How did this even happen. Pokemon was my childhood-SINNOH REGION POKEMON TO BE DIRECT. How did Dawn and Paul even become a thing?! - SeeU

Nope nope nope

The fact that this has SUPPORTERS is worse than the sometimes frustrating amourshipping fanbase (even though I support it myself)

Dawn is my favorite pokegirl, and paul? He's just... NOPE.

4 Inukag (Inuyasha) Inukag (Inuyasha)

Now, I enjoy the Like an Old Married Couple trope as much as anyone, but about half of Inuyasha and Kagome's time is spent fighting over tiny little things (seriously, you could make a drinking game over how many times they get into a stupid argument) and treating each other like crap. Exactly how they fell in love so quickly in the series is beyond me. Inuyasha insults and ridicules Kagome on a regular basis and doesn't care that she has a life outside of shard detecting, and yet she's swooning over him as early as episode 11. Inuyasha at least has the excuse that Kagome is Kikyo reborn, but considering how awful she can be to him (sitting him when he doesn't deserve it, berating and belittling him because he says or does something she doesn't like, expecting him to be the perfect boyfriend when they aren't even a couple), that doesn't seem like enough for him to fall like a ton of bricks for her.

So basically, we have a pairing that's touted as being the truest of true loves, ...more

That other imperfect couple, Ranma and Akane is worse than this couple or this other imperfect couple is worse than Ranma and Akane.

Rinne and Sakura are better than Ranma and Akane and Inuyasha and Kagome alongside all the other previous love hate couples.

Hot and cold relationships are insufferable, aren't they?

5 Rocketshipping (Pokmon anime) Rocketshipping (Pokmon anime)

There is ZERO evidence for Rocketshipping, in the English anime of course. People misread a close, sibling-like friendship for something else. I HATE that about shippers! I'm like, really? It is no one's business who ends up in a romantic relationship with who! And they push it even farther by touting their little ship-religion and by trying to force it onto others. Anyway, when I first started watching the anime about a year and a half ago, trying to understand the characters and their dynamic with one another, I thought Jessie and Jame's relationship could possibly be romantic. But I quickly realized it definitely wasn't and now it irks me when I see anything Rocketshipping-related. Those idiot shippers can go on believing a lie, living in their little cuckoo land, and dreaming up disgusting fantasies. Let the stupid be stupid still!

James would "rather die" than marry Jessie and Jessie shows obvious interest in other guys, yet rocketshippers still insist this is a thing. Nothing romantic has happened the past 20 years (and no, the manga is not canon to the anime). But of course, any kind of affection between two characters is automatically taken as a sign that something romantic is going on. Jessie and James clearly care for each other very much, they're basically platonic life partners (i'm pretty sure James even said so himself in a Japanese-only mock interview). Another thing that irritates me about this ship? It either leaves Meowth out or the shippers act like he's Jessie and Jame's surrogate son. No. It's clear all three of them are on equal terms and they love each other like siblings. Jessie even called Meowth "dear" at one point. Anyway, Jessie and Jame's dynamic is very much like Sharpay and Ryan's from High School Musical. James is the submissive, slightly effeminate, younger ...more

To the person who says there's ZERO evidence, then you there's no way you've ever watched Pokemon at all. And why is this as high as second? It's one of the most underrated Pokemon pairings, you don't even know the meaning of the word overrated since it's this high on the list. Any Ash pairing are the most overrated as there's tons of art and fanfiction in comparison, Poke- and Amourshipping is the most overrated of them all. Rocketshipping is actually the most possible to become canon, they're both adults and has the chemistry. Ash pairings can only work if there's a time skip, kids don't get into serious relationships. That said, before you say something is overrated you need to learn what it actually means.

Noting has happened even though Team Rocket has existed for the past 18 years

6 Soarindash (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic)

As long as there's no Princess Twilight crap I'm fine - SeeU

At least Soarin is a better choice for Rainbow Dash shipping than Sonic, that's for sure. Yes to same-series ships! No to crossover ships! End of shipping wars! enough said.

I Personally Love This Ship, But It's Completely Fine If You Don't - JPK

7 Foxy and Chica (Five Nights At Freddy's)

They're robots. what?!

8 Wario & Mona (Warioware)

Honestly considering how rude disgusting and greedy Wario can be I doubt any relationship would work for him if he doesn't improve his bad manners. To me he's just a adventurous hoarder destined to live alone.

Mona finds him ugly and wants to be paid. How can that be a happy relationship?

Mona: It’s Wario’s game, so you’ll start on his stage. Spin the GBA until the hand is on his ugly mug (I hope he’s not reading this! )

So she thinks he's ugly lol how can she love him?
Then she contently worries about getting paid. While Wario is greedy why would you do that to her? - Mariosprincessesfan

9 Harry and Hermione (Harry Potter)

Hell no why would somebody include this on the list this is the best ship ever! - Pokemonrules101

Eh it would have been better than the canon couples jkr went with them... but in the end, they were good friends & nothing showed them of them interested in each other romantically. Just because they are good friends, doesn’t mean they should become lovers. It’s fine to have just a friend who is the opposite sex.

It also sucks that jkr paired up people in the same house. How boring.

10 Sans & Toriel (Undertale)

This is super overrated.

She is like a million years older than him.

I hate this ship!

At LEAST Nick x Judy from Zootopia makes SENSE! - SpyNaps

The Contenders

11 Waluigi & Rosalina (Mario Kart 8)

So I'm fine with paring the spares... We might have all done so once in our lifetime and as long as you're not purposely paring two people together to keep a person away from another person, no harm no fowl. My first was Luigi & Daisy...

But no. This paring has nothing to do with paring the spares, which I wished it did. But then why did this become so popular you might ask? Because they weighed the same in MK. Okay people. Go find someone who weighs the same as you and go end up with them. Can you see how stupid that is? - Mariosprincessesfan

This Shipping is as Worst as Blossrick (Powerpuff Girls)

People they never f-ing dated it's listed no were that they even are acquainted with each other at all anywhere so S T FU and get over it fan work doesn't make anything true so stop spreading BS!

12 Dramione (Harry Potter) Dramione (Harry Potter)

They barely interact. People who hardcore ship them obviously can't distinguish between fiction and reality. Yes, there are good fanfics out there which is why they're so popular, but people have to realize there are some extremely fundamental problems with this ship. It's beyond problematic. It's like shipping a jewish person with a nazi. He literally hates her and her kind...

My sister loves this ship. Meanwhile, I don't get it. Draco and Hermione hate each other. There is no secret love between them. Quit acting like there is. - Elric-san

(Draco & Hermione) As much as I don't like Hermione, she deserves to do better. There wasn't even a single positive interaction with them. - Mariosprincessesfan

It's J.K. Rowling who should've had the whole entire Slytherin House go through proper character development back then before in the first place. She could've had the whole entire Slytherin House go through proper character development back then before in the first place but no instead she just had to left it unknown at the end of Harry Potter.

13 Nick x Judy (Zootopia)

This ship is just overrated. - Pokemonrules101

14 Knuckles x Rouge (Sonic)

They are rivals and Knuckles doesn't even like Rouge. The "crush" that Rouge has is only part of her being flirty. She would act like this to ANY male character honestly, even to Sonic himself. Plus, Rouge tries to steal the Master Emerald from Knuckles all the time. This shipping also makes Knuckles look dumb when the fact is that he's much more intelligent than Ed from The Lion King.

No offense to anyone who ships Knouge but Shadouge is much more hinted in the games and comics (and no, it has nothing to do with Shadow seeing Rouge as a sister. She flirts with him too for Mobius' sake).

The only 'hint' that really matters in the game is knucklehead's song where all he said was he found her attractive and that's it. Even further in the song, he voiced his disinterest about everything else about her.
Looks<personality. Even knucklehead is smart enough to figure this out kids.

Plus she flirts with knucklehead like she flirts with everyone else (besides shadow). To get what she wants (aka master emerald). That's not a good base to base a relationship on.

15 Revolutionshipping (Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters) Revolutionshipping (Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters)

(Atem & Tea) Remember that battle Yugi had with Seto in Pegasus's tournament? Yugi, or rather Yami Yugi (i hate his real name) was about to let Seto be an idiot and knock him off the ledge. If it wasn't for Yugi, Yami Yugi would've IGNORED TEA and done it. He didn't care how she felt, only Yugi himself FORCED him to go away.

Tea saw that negatively and didn't like the change in Yugi. Even after Yugi explained it to him, he still believed that it should've been done. Now if she didn't like that decision, why should she like the guy that came up with the decision?

And with most of the the other ships involving Yami Yugi, lets forget that he's a 3,000-5,000 year old pharaoh spirit that showed no interest in her what-so-ever. - Mariosprincessesfan

This ship is trash. I totally agree with Mariosprincessesfan! - Miauzer

hate this

WELL KAZUKI TAKAHSHI SAID IN AN INTERVIEW THAT THERE IS A LOVE TRIANGLE by the way YUGI ANZU YAMI he said those three have so much respect and care toward each other

16 Ereri (Attack on Titan)

This ship is the most popular. Why is that? Because fangirls think it's hot. I hate the ship. It's disgusting and it has NO chemistry nor evidence to back it up that it's canon.

They have no chemistry. Don't know why people obsess over them. - stormyskies

It is pedophilia.

Don't they have a 15+ year age gap?

17 Steve and Bucky (Avengers)

Aren't they brothers? that's a bit weird if they are to be honest - Purplederps

18 Kai x Lloyd (Lego Ninjago)

Creating ships is like saying "We the fans know better than you writers" just let the writers write.

Ugh, yes! This ship is such a disgusting insult to Ninjago.

19 Jay x Nya (Lego Ninjago)

ANY Lego ninjago shipping can be here, I mean KAI X LLOYD? , seriously? - VideoGamefan5

20 Sam Puckett x Freddie Benson (iCarly)

I like them better as frenemies it was funny when they argued - StayAlive

21 ContestShipping (Pokemon)

I support Contest, but this is overrated. Something like this, rivalry to become a popularity? So weird. I'm not calling this dumb - to be honest I called Drew and May dumb once - but still this is cute

This is possibly the worst ship (even worse than amourshipping). You guys have been brainwashed and you are spreading propaganda. You are no different than Joseph Stalin. Reasons: drew' confidence isn't the good kind, his confidence is basically arrogance and that is intimidating for anyone. How could may fall for such a thing. Even if she is that dumb, better date another dumb person (like you know who) than that playboy.

This shipping is stupid and overrated, so overrated that if you go against them they will hunt you down and kill you

Oh no...DON'T START WITH MAY, DREW OR WHATS-HIS-FACE (Harley I think his name is) - SeeU

22 MakiNico (Love Live!)

NozoEli deserves to be more popular than this ship. - PerfectImpulseX

23 Sasusaku (Naruto)

Sasuke treated Sakura horribly and tried to kill her and it would've been much better for her to move on from him

Worst and most delusional ship ever

Also, saucegay seemed to care very little about b her through the series he barely saw her as a friend and seemed to only tolerated her cause she was his teammate

This ship is bull****. Sakura did NOTHING to save Sasuke from the Curse of Hatred and he couldn't care less about her anyway

24 Ruby & Sapphire (Steven Universe)

Ruby and Sapphire are already in love, so... - SeeU

I pretty sure I'm one of the only people who doesn't find it very interesting. - TwitchandVinegar

Does it count as shipping if the pair is canon?

This is already canon, but to me their relationship is kind of awkward. They’re too clingy and passionate in their relationship. I get that they’ve been through so much together which is fine, but they can’t stand apart from each other for ONE second. I’m sorry, but their relationship to me is very weird - MarioNinja101

25 Edward & Bella (Twilight)

Bella just started obsessing over him when she puts down all the other guys. Then she tries to commit suicide for him. Though he makes her get rid of her friends and family and watches her while she sleeps... never mind they are perfect for each other

Who says they are 'perfect' for each other? It is a toxic relationship. Bella is too dependent on Edward and Edward is possessive of her. Bella is a selfish, needy bitch. Edward is a creepy stalker who literally sees Bella as a piece of meat. And don't get me started on all the abuse. Their relationship is NOT love. It is lust.

And that's why they're perfect for each other. Jacob deserves better than some stupid, whiny, needy, b***h, and why torment any other girl with the controlling d-bag Edward? I'll agree it is toxic and bad relationship, but out of that crappy saga, I can't think of a better pair.

26 Alphyne (Undertale)

tru that

27 Shinji x Asuka (Evangelion)

Screw love hate relationships. I can't stand love hate relationships. I dislike love hate relationships. Love hate relationships are insufferable.

28 Hayate and Hinagiku (Hayate the Combat Butler)
29 Roxas and Namine (Kingdom Hearts II) Roxas and Namine (Kingdom Hearts II)

I hate Roxas x Namine!

Worst couple in the games xddd

How I see Roxas & Namine, at best siblings, worst... the same...
All the Nobodies looked almost exactly (same hair color, eye color, etc) as their sombodies, except for, you guessed it: Roxas AND Namine. We also know that Sora took Kari's heart when she lost it on Destiny Island, and that he lost his heart when he used the keyblade on himself, so he can give back her heart, meaning he also lost it as well. Namine & Roxas have the same hair and eye color, despite Namine being Kari's nobody and she has Purpleish hair (Roxas also doesn't look like Sora, but that's because he had Ven's heart). There's also more proof in that guys report supporting that Namine & Roxas is ether clones, or at the very least brother and sister.

Read Secret Ansem's Report 12 (KH2). Namine is Kairi's nobody, but was created by Sora's body & soul while Roxas was the opposite. But the sources is the same.

The reason Namine helped Roxas in the first place is because Xion had told Namine to look ...more

30 Noco (Total Drama)

There is no logic on shoving Noah and Cody together. Yes, there was the accidental "kiss", but Noah was in his sleep, and it was on the ear!

Also, it's one of the weirdest ideas I've heard. Won't work. - Turkeyasylum

31 Shadow & Rouge (Sonic)

People only hate Shadouge because they want him to be asexual, ice hearted, emo, bloodthirsty or a Blood Knight which is too cliched for a rival/dark counterpart to the main hero (Sonic in this case) and not acceptable. I rather see Shadow flirt with Rouge than to be a creepy serial killer with no remorse.

Rouge and Knuckles won't make a better shipping because it is completely one sided; The "crush" is just Rouge being a flirt, and heck, Knuckles doesn't even like Rouge.

Shadow and Rouge make a much better shipping than Knuckles and Rouge. Heck, Knuckles doesn't even love Rouge. He loves the Master Emerald instead and is trying to protect it from being stolen by her.

This, *sputter* what? This makes no sense. They're just partners

Shadow doesn’t care, he has other things to worry about. He’s too depressed about Maria’s death and is very independent, I don’t see why people like this couple so much when they wouldn’t be good together - MarioNinja101

32 Kirby x Jigglypuff (Super Smash Bros)

Just because they're pink and soft, really? - VideoGamefan5

33 Finnflame (Adventure Time)

Yes it was Canon once but that was that was a horrible relationship going on there flame has moved on and is not interested in pursuing the relationship anymore and the whole relationship was pretty shallow as they fell in love at first sight.

34 Sonic x Amy (Sonic the Hedgehog) Sonic x Amy (Sonic the Hedgehog)

It's like people only care about Amy side sonic find her revolting and I don't want to leave blame her she's like an annoying stocker that just assumes things and won't leave him alone like they're barely friends. Or maybe because all they're both hedgehogs they should be together that he at this ship is so popular. Add rather them both end up both alone then the ship happening

Makes more sense than Shadouge, at least they actually have a connection - MarioNinja101

Amy is just an annoying minipulitive whinny stalker that sonic barley tolerates. I mean, how is it good I'm a relationship where one FORCES the other to do what they want? Sounds like as good of a story as twilight 😩

I'd much rather have Sonic with Amy instead of Sonic with Fuli from The Lion Guard, that's for sure.

38 UlquiHime (Bleach)

/vomits
Like seriously, ichiruki shippers u have to keep your disgusting pattern of necrophila then add abuse since u hate orihime? She doesn’t suck, it’s u people. If you don’t want ichihime (too bad for u whinny freaks it happened lol), at least pair her off with someone who doesn’t actually wants to kill her. Chad? Urha? Ichigo’s pervert friend or stupid whinny friend? Any of those is so much better than this cr@p pair.

39 Klance (Voltron: Legendary Defender)
40 Burningleafshipping (Pokemon FR/LG)

People only like this because of hero X heroine thing. I don't like it. They look like siblings and clones of each other. Leaf and Red can never exist in the same universe. There is no appeal to it yet I see billions of fan art for it. This is really overrated.

(male trainer & female trainer) I just find this ship weird as I can't see it as anything else except gender bent selfcest - Mariosprincessesfan

They NEVER meet in canon. Leaf is not canon. People can argue that this is a good looking pairing and all, but they have no chemestry. They can never exist in the same universe. This is like shipping siblings.

People only like this shipping because of the hero X heroine factor. It is ridiculous.

This ship makes absolutely no sense! I mean, ship it all you want but I see no chemistry at all. I ship red x green [rival] because they both have chemistry in the anime + manga + sun and moon. see for yourselves, if you disagree then I won't stop you. red x leaf/blue is just a no no for me. in the manga, they have a brother and sister relationship. - lowkeysavage

41 Roxas & Xion (Kingdom Hearts 358/2) Roxas & Xion (Kingdom Hearts 358/2)

Besides Xion is a puppet and doesn't exist anymore... At the end of the game, it TOLD you she was a CLONE just so they have two keyblade users. And there's the fact I never understood why people who are basically have the same personality and seem just the same as a couple. People who are exactly alike aren't interesting. She came and acted the same as Roxas when he came in. Didn't talk much, always did as told. And Roxas treated her the same as Axel did, only because he found someone like him. They seemed more like twins, and that's why they where so close.

THEY ARE BETTER THAN ROXAS AND NAMINÉ. I don't know Xion, but Roxas love she. One year with she, Naminé only 10 minutes.

42 Clemont & Ash (Pokemon X and Y)

This ship is bad. Very very bad. - RiverClanRocks

what?!

This ship is not overrated. barely, people ship this at all because they make no sense. ash basically has no interests other than pokèmon - lowkeysavage

43 Shinichi x Ran (Detective Conan)
44 Gray and Juvia (Fairy Tail)
45 Rey and Kylo Ren (Star Wars)

This makes no sence, they share no love interest with each other- watch the force awakens for all of the proof. - Purplederps

This is an actual thing? this makes no sence- to star off, they both show no love interest in eachother, don't belive me? watch the force awakens for yourself then

46 Stiles and Lydia (Teen Wolf)

I don't like the love story or chesmitry. And people go on and on about how she used to ignore him, and now they're friends. to be honest I think it'd be cuter if she never ignored him
