Top 10 Best Sonic the Hedgehog Couples

The Top Ten
1 Sonic the Hedgehog and Blaze the Cat

Blaze is a great partner for Sonic. She's dependable and independent, yet she is even better with a team. She is talented and tactful.

She's beautiful, strong, lithe, and flexible. She's the perfect partner for Sonic. Blaze can be just as cocky as Sonic, if not more so. She's not that different from Sonic.

In spin-offs such as the Riders and Olympics series, Blaze is shown to have become far more confident. Nearly all of her lines involve her bragging about how awesome she is, and she doesn't take losing well. This is not unlike Sonic, one of the main influences behind her character development. They have excellent chemistry.

2 Shadow the Hedgehog and Rouge the Bat

After Maria's death, Shadow had no one. Then, he met Rouge, and she was his only friend after Maria died. I think they work well together and that they should be more than work partners.

Shadow and Rouge fit much better together than Knuckles and Rouge. Knuxouge is fanservice. It might be funny, but Shadouge understand each other, and Rouge called him handsome more than once. She and Shadow actually get along. They genuinely like and care for each other. I just really love this ship, and I'm happy it's so far up. It definitely deserves its spot and higher.

3 Miles "Tails" Prower and Cream the Rabbit

Let's see... They're both children who are smarter than their "older siblings." They're both kid sidekicks (Tails is Sonic's sidekick and Cream is Amy's sidekick). They don't like to fight. They're adorable. Yeah, they definitely belong together.

They're both down-to-earth characters that share similar values, often trying to slow down their more headstrong "older siblings" with a softer and more heartfelt personality. They both try to make peace with others and avoid conflict, and they're almost blind with optimism. Despite them having different perspectives from their backgrounds (a girl who spends her time with flowers and baking. A boy who learned about mechanics and planes).

Cream is said to be curious and eager to learn, so she would be able to appreciate Miles as he takes his time to teach and show her things that open the world for her. Tails would also appreciate her because there really aren't many characters willing to understand and listen to him.

Really, it depends on how you view them, as there are reasons why this ship might not work. From Tails' Meta Era personality (look at Sonic Lost World and Forces), or Cream's patronizing attitude and inconsiderate tendencies.

I like to think of them as more humble, understanding that there's more at stake than their egos. They're both willing to learn and trust each other. Because for me, they honestly seem to be one of the healthiest relationships in the series. At least, that's what I got with the little interaction they have.

4 Miles "Tails" Prower and Cosmo

Number one forever, Tails and Cosmo share a genuine bond that betters each other, giving Tails the best character arc he ever had. Sonic X Tails is best Tails because Cosmo supports him, and he supports her.

Cosmo's sacrifice seals the end of their blooming love, but if you've seen the Japanese version, you know she'll come back. It's been over a decade, but it's still just as strong as yesterday. I still have faith that she'll come back one way or another and that she and Tails will be back together, offering an accurate representation of what a healthy, happy, and positive romantic relationship truly is in the Sonic universe.

5 Knuckles the Echidna and Rouge the Bat

They're like the Kelly and Ryan (from The Office) of Sonic the Hedgehog, and for that reason alone, I think they should be together.

Knuckles and Rouge are probably the most canonical out of all the ships. They canonically both like each other as more than friends, but at the same time, they are rivals, which makes the ship much more interesting. That's why it is my OTP.

The most consistent, two-sided ship with actual romantic hints in the entire franchise is Knuckles the Echidna and Rouge the Bat. This ship appears in games, anime, and comics. It's everywhere and it's canon. Both of their official Sega profiles even say so. Their chemistry in SA2 is very obvious. They literally have an almost-kiss moment. Even one of Knuckles' theme songs in the game is about his crush-in-denial. The message the writers were trying to send with these two is very clear.

Sonic Team clearly ships it. Even Sonic himself has teased Knuckles and Rouge about their obvious feelings for each other. You know it's canon when an in-universe character, the titular character of the franchise no less, acknowledges it! Shadouge shippers are in serious denial and need to stop whining. I mean, even when I was a hardcore Shadouge shipper, I still acknowledged Knuxouge was definitely a thing and was cool with both ships. Because you cannot deny Knuckles and Rouge have a thing for each other.

6 Sonic the Hedgehog and Amy Rose

They're more realistic than other ships because it actually takes time for them to be together (mainly for Sonic to develop feelings for Amy). I may not be "obsessed" with them, but I think they are definitely good together.

I would say stuff, but everything is already explained. Amy is so sweet. In the Archie Comics, Sonic and Sally were together, but Amy helped them out anyway because all she wants is for Sonic to be happy.

In Sonic Boom, Sonic got all defensive when Knuckles suggested that Amy might be setting up for a date (Episode Fuzzy Puppy Buddies). How cute is that? And Amy's whole purpose for creation was to be Sonic's love interest. This isn't canon, but in the 1992 Sonic the Hedgehog manga, Eimi (Amy) and Nikki/Sonic were a couple, thus the creation of Amy.

Don't forget their color schemes! Blue and Pink, male and female, they totally work!

7 Sonic the Hedgehog and Shadow the Hedgehog

Yeah, Sonadow for the win! This is honestly the best Sonic ship ever. It's interesting. They have a great dynamic with their similarities and differences.

They are on the same level. No one understands them better than they do. Sonic loves to run, and Shadow is the only one who can run as fast as Sonic and is as strong as him. They both love their freedom and don't want to be chained down. They fit perfectly together, and no one can convince me otherwise!

This is a really interesting one. First, they were enemies, but after all they went through together, they both developed a mutual trust and respect for one another.

Plus, Sonic really does seem to flirt with Shadow a lot, and he never flirts with anyone, including his "girlfriend," Amy (Sonamy lovers, don't hate me)! I think they're really cute together, but because SEGA is obsessed with Sonamy, I doubt it will ever happen. Oh, well. I still love them!

8 Shadow the Hedgehog and Amy Rose

In Sonic Heroes, Team Dark and Team Rose never fought. Shadow also made a promise to Amy in Sonic Adventure 2, and she was one of the few characters who saw Shadow cry. The teardrop is barely visible. When Amy hugged Shadow by accident, he did not react negatively. In the game Shadow the Hedgehog, Amy says, "Shadow, I'm so glad you're here!"

If you help Amy on a mission in Shadow's game, he will say, "I arrived at the doctor's castle, and I ran into Amy. She was looking for Cream, who was missing. I didn't have any reason to help her, but since I was looking for the doctor anyway, I figured, 'Anyway, I've wasted enough time already. I need to track down the Doctor at once.'" Additionally, Shadow is one of the few who has not shown any dislike towards Amy.

9 Vanilla the Rabbit and Vector the Crocodile

They're a couple that have passed their teen years and are mature enough to decide who they want to spend time with. I also like the idea of how they'll bounce off each other, as this is a case of balance between differences and similarities.

One is a loudmouth who boasts about any amount of gain he's got, working for a poor detective agency, and at times, appearing to be a money-grubbing maniac. The other is a soft-spoken mother, who never really speaks up more than she needs to, living comfortably in her little home.

Yet, I think it's possible for them to work. Despite making a fool of himself, Vector has standards. There are jobs he wouldn't go for, payments he would willingly not take. He seems to have a standard, or a code he follows. He's loyal and knows when to keep his mouth shut and listen. He's even a believer in God in Knuckles' Chaotix. How wouldn't he have a code?

He's also very caring, as he's shown to do his job for free if his morality calls for it. And his love for his team, having such pride and confidence in them. Someone so boastful, yet disciplined with a good heart. That's something that could pique the interest of the old hare, maybe balance out her personality.

The wild card here is how you view Vanilla, as she's not often the forefront in Sonic stories. She's a satellite character, of a satellite character. We don't get to explore her personality thoroughly. But sharing a moral standpoint is a good spot for a ship to grow. Plus, it seems she's more his type. As his reaction to seeing Rouge was: "Who's this broad?" Says the guy who admires a rabbit mother.

10 Silver the Hedgehog and Amy Rose

Underrated and wholesome. This ship always gets overlooked because of Sonamy and Silvaze, and it's so much better and more interesting.

Such an underrated, cute ship. They both really like each other, and their personalities would fit so well together. I wish those two had more moments together.

Adorable! Amy was Silver's first friend. They are both jolly, friendly, helpful, and cheerful. Does that not sound good?

The Contenders
11 Silver the Hedgehog and Blaze the Cat

People often say this couple doesn't work out because 1: Silver is from the future, and Blaze is from a different dimension (and since Sonic 06 was removed from the timeline, they don't know each other) and 2: Their personality contrast wouldn't work out. The distance and difference between the two is actually what I like about that pairing. Silver is the emotional one, while Blaze is the rational one. Even in Sonic 06, that's what keeps them together. Given that they both freely go between worlds and timelines respectively, they can probably work something out to still be together. Keeping a distance relationship is a pretty good show of love.

And I doubt Blaze really gets to date anyone in her own world. She's royalty. Her parents are probably saving her for an arranged marriage to gain political power. Monarchy sucks.

Also, in the DS version of Sonic Colors, it shows that they both seem somewhat familiar with each other, and they're seen talking to each other at the end of Generations, so I think they could possibly be together.

12 Shadow the Hedgehog and Blaze the Cat

Both serious, level-headed (until provoked), determined, strong, and lonely souls. Shadow didn't trust anyone after his best friend died, and Blaze barely had any friends (besides Silver, who she thinks of as a brother, I might add) because they thought she was weird. The two would make a fantastic couple. I want a game about the two of them.

These two characters' personalities intertwine so perfectly that it's impossible for me not to agree with this pairing. Though they never interact in the games, that doesn't mean that it should just be thrown to the side as a fake pairing. This pairing is perfectly legitimate and has a reliable fan base to keep it going.

13 Metal Sonic and Amy Rose

I just really like the idea of Sonic's robot version having a crush on Amy while Sonic himself doesn't like her in that way. It would be funny if he was jealous of Sonic because Amy has a crush on Sonic and not him.

I know they are enemies, but it would be kind of cute if Metal Sonic had a crush on Amy. And I do love a good enemies-to-lovers trope.

I love this. They would make a nice couple. And Amy would probably be the only one who could turn Metal Sonic good.

14 Amy Rose and Blaze the Cat

Amy falling in love with a female alternate version of Sonic would be really cute, and I could see this happening. They could work really well together.

Look at these cute pink and purple characters. I don't actually know why I ship them, but it just feels right. Also, there are too many straight ships at the top. There need to be more LGBT ships.

I really like ships where one character is very calm and introverted, and the other character is extroverted and full of energy. I think they would make a cute couple.

15 Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles the Echidna

They have great chemistry, and Frontiers kind of made me ship it. They definitely had my favorite interactions in the game. I love how they make a competition out of everything and always tease each other.

Remember in Sonic X when Knuckles was staring at the moon and thinking about Sonic? Then he denied it and blushed. Yeah, he totally has a crush on him!

Man, Sonkux should be at least in the Top 20. It's such an underrated ship. Their dynamic is so good and interesting.

16 Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles "Tails" Prower

I used to think that Sonic and Tails were dating when I was a kid. I can't say it's the most deep or interesting dynamic, but you always carry a flame for your first ship. Admittedly, a lot of the art is very cute.

There is no other ship that has more canon fodder than this ship. They're almost always together, and a few times, Tails has blushed in Sonic's presence. Whenever Tails is in trouble, who does he always hope saves him? Sonic! This needs to be a thing.

Most Sonic fans ship Sontails. He's got his buddy in most fights through different timelines more times than anyone. Tails knows more about Sonic than Amy. To Tails, Sonic is his best friend, his brother, his mother, his father, and pretty much everything he needs in his life. Tails wouldn't have a better life if he hadn't met Sonic. And Sonic wouldn't be complete without Tails.

17 Shadow the Hedgehog and Maria Robotnik

I love Shadaria a lot, even though I know it will never happen. Guys, let's face it: Shadow loved Maria. His whole life, he's been consumed with trauma surrounding her death. Maria was the only one who knew how to communicate with Shadow.

And to those of you who say that people who ship Shadow and Maria and not Sonic and Elise should get this straight:

1. Sonic 06 was deleted from the timeline.
2. Elise was a whiny baby, and there was no chance for Sonic to return feelings to her.

This ship is fantastic, but now that Maria is gone, I ship Shadouge.

18 Silver the Hedgehog and Espio the Chameleon

It was so cute how Espio helped and comforted Silver when he was panicking. I hope they had more interactions because I love every single one of them.

I think they work really well together because of their personalities, and I can see it working. It would be interesting if it was more explored.

Sonic Rivals proved that they have a great dynamic and are very cute together.

19 Tangle the Lemur and Whisper the Wolf

I really love them! I think it's a great example of opposites attract (the stubborn extrovert Tangle and the calm introvert Whisper together is just PERFECT)! They deserve to be in the top 10!

Also, did I mention that they're one of the few ships on here that's actually CANON!?

Canon and real. They love each other so much. If the restrictions on romance are ever lifted, I just know we'll get a story focusing on their first date being crashed by Eggman or something.

They have such a profound and trusting relationship with each other. It's hard not to ship them. They were just made for each other.

20 Sonic the Hedgehog and Sir Lancelot

Love this one! Lancelot was so worried about Sonic at the end of Sonic and the Black Knight. I like the idea of Lancelot falling in love with Sonic before he left this world again, even if it's tragic.

I shipped Lansoni before Sonadow because Lancelot and Sonic aren't rivals and have a cute dynamic. Now I ship both, but Lancelot and Sonic will always have a special place in my heart.

I'm always melting at the cuteness of this ship.

21 Shadow the Hedgehog and Knuckles the Echidna

Those two have a lot in common if you think about it. Their relationship with each other should be explored more. It's too bad Knuckles has to constantly guard the Master Emerald now, and Shadow is not used much because of mandates.

I mostly ship it because of the Twitter Takeovers. They actually seem to like each other there, and I think they are cute.

I ship them because of the Archie comics. They had a really fun relationship with each other.

22 Espio the Chameleon and Rouge the Bat

I don't know, I think it would be interesting to see. Also, they seem compatible.

23 Jet the Hawk and Wave the Swallow

Yes, definitely the best one. They should just dismiss Storm, after all, he is the one getting in the way of their relationship. For example, Jet and Wave were in their ship talking when Storm storms in and tells them that he got defeated. At least Storm isn't in the Rio 2016 Olympics, but Jet and Wave aren't in the same sport together.

It's a nice couple, really. But I just found out they are brother and sister! Siblings, people! If you guys don't believe me, search it up.

It would have been funny to see Wave simping over Jet in one of SonicSong182's videos while the crew behind the channel are trying to stop her while in character. Since Bulma Bunny truly is that messed up as a person, just face it, it'll 50% happen.

24 Sonic the Hedgehog and Jet the Hawk

They are obsessed with each other and constantly bicker (flirt) with each other. Sadly, Jet only ever has small cameos. I bet there would be way more shippers if he appeared more often.

I'm glad more and more people are shipping this. It's an interesting ship!

The third-best rivals-to-lovers ship.

25 Sonic the Hedgehog and Zeena

Zeena makes a few flirty/teasing remarks towards Sonic, such as calling him "adorable", and telling him to call her in Sonic Lost World.
