The Top Ten

1 Link & Zelda

Link and Zelda should be first! Link and Zelda stand for much more than anyone from the Mario games because the Zelda games have so much more meaning. I mean, I can kind of see Mario & Toadstool (Peach) because they are the classic Nintendo couple, but how can Luigi & Daisy be ahead of either of them?!? They don't even belong on this list.

While Mario/Peach and Luigi/Daisy are confirmed couples for Nintendo, Link and Zelda's romance have only been minor upon in most games. However, the potential for a full romance to blossom is just undeniable. Their (romantic) relationship was even used as key plot points in Skyward Sword and Spirit Tracks.

Link and Zelda have the deepest relationship out of everyone in Nintendo... I mean hello, their connection spans over different worlds, different generations, different lifetimes... You know they're always gonna have that special bond, no matter what.

Link doesn't need to be with Zelda! Link is better off with Malon and Mipha! Zelda sucks and she's a whiny brat who probably needs to be scrapped if Nintendo doesn't make her a well-written stoic character! - Pinkarray

2 Mario & Toadstool

This is kind of like some fairy tales. The prince looks for the princess than marries her.

Mario's one heck of a dedicated boyfriend to constantly come to Peach's rescue lol! - HeavyDonkeyKong

This should be number 1

3 Luigi & Daisy

Ahh those 2 are so funny 2gether look on google 4 loads of pictures of them 2gether some of them even make me laugh they are meant to be 2gether and belong oon the list

There such a cute couple

Look, Luigi isn't showing interest in Daisy anymore. Plus she's not in any games. Luigi seems to like Eclair and Rosalina. - DCfnaf

4 Little Mac & Samus

Lil Mac Is Perfect for Her

5 Fox McCloud & Krystal

They're a great couple, despite what the idiotic haters say otherwise.

How is this couple only 11?! They're the cutest couple ever!

These two saved my life, they deserve to be together forever ;*

It is a great grouping, the tough fox and kind kristal. Love this couple, and this one should kick m/p or l/d

6 Yoshi & Birdo Yoshi & Birdo Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. He is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi and Mario franchises.

Yoshi and Birdo are the sweetest! Yoshi accepts Birdo for who she is and Birdo went from being a baddie, to join the good guys. I like to think it was because of him.

They have got to be the cutest couple

This couple should be number 1.

7 Samus & Captain Falcon

This is the only Smash Bros pairing involving two characters who otherwise don't coexist I can get behind.

What they never even meet beside in smash bros

8 Kirby & Jigglypuff

When I'm kirby on smash bros, and I put it to random, and one of them is jigglypuff, I start having these weird daydreams that I can't get out of. This should be number one!

Two adorable pink balls of joy! What's not to love!?

Man, rhese two look so CUTE. together. Why can't. They get Married?
They should get Married!

9 Pit & Palutena

I love these two! I could only hope that these two would be together when Pit matures physically

10 Robin & Chrom

Funny thing about this pairing: even when your avatar (Robin, unless you changed the name) is male (leaving Chrom to marry one of the four other eligible bachelorettes so Lucina can be born), Chrom still has more chemistry with him than anyone else.

If nothing else, just think of what it adds to the story when these two end up lovers/spouses, and how it effects their respective kids.

Male robin and Chrom because Nintendo should support gay couples

I married these two in my playthrough of Awakening.

The Contenders

11 Nana & Popo (Ice Climber)
12 Diddy Kong & Tiny Kong
13 Kafei & Anju (Majora's Mask)

They chose to die together, even when they knew that the end of the world was coming. ❤


14 Shulk & Fiora


15 Ike & Soren

Same commenter from earlier; I realized I'd accidentally left out some words. What I meant was: If you create a same-sex pair, and someone says they're "generally a het fan and ship several other het pairs even within the same game" yet still loves and can really see that same-sex pair, you've obviously done something right.

They're lovely, and I love them - Loveowls9

16 Reese & Cyrus

They're the pink and blue alpaca couple that run the resale store in "Animal Crossing New Leaf"

They're so adorable together.

Interesting fact: alpaca can literally die of lonliness. Nintendo had the right idea bringing in two at once.

17 Marth & Shiida

I know it's more customary to pair Marth with whatever other character in "Smash Bros.", but I always kept him with Shiida (or Caeda depending on the translation) as per his ACTUAL game of origin. It's a shame such a beautiful pairing is so overlooked if not outright hated just for the sake of inane "crack pairings".

They did marry at the end of New Mystery of the Emblem (third game in the series and second game they appeared in), and given "Awakening" had at least one child together.

18 Ness & Paula

Why isn't this at least 3? - Shulk

19 Wario & Mona

I wish this site wasn't so overrun with Captain Syrup fans. She and Wario are rivals, and contrary to what so many want to believe rivals only very rarely if ever become friends let alone lovers. As for Princess Shokora, she's actually dead so that's not going to work either.

This couple is simple but ok - DCfnaf

20 Diddy & Dixie
21 Pit & Samus
22 Mario & Pauline

That's probably true Game Theory fan. But it's the original couple so... - DCfnaf

Pauline is Mario's Mom

23 Roy & Lilina
24 Link & Midna

These two went through thick and thin with one another! In the end I feel like Midna and Link really had something going on. Remember what happened after the credits of Twilight Princess, yeah Link's face was the face of heart break, don't try denying it either.

25 Professor Layton & Claire

So sweet yet so sad

26 Snake & Samus
27 Eliwood & Lyndis

I personally prefer Eliwood/Ninian and Lyn/Hector over this, but each to their own. (As long as you don't ship Lyn in a crossover pairing with a character that isn't from the Fire Emblem series, that is)

28 Pit & Medusa
29 Young Link & Nabooru
30 Pit & Rosalina

Although they make a cute couple, I prefer Toon Link and Rosalina

It's Toon Link & Rosalina, not Pit!

This sucks - DCfnaf

31 Pit & Phosphora

Phosphora and Pit are both heroic characters with distinctive personalities, which makes them a unique potential couple. It's cute that Phosphora teases and flirts with Pit during their first encounter.

32 Link and Malon
33 Ephraim & Eirika

They're siblings, not a couple.

34 Quote & Curly

They're from Nintendo?

35 Jack & King (Cave Story)
36 Luigi & Rosalina Luigi & Rosalina Luigi is a fictional character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo. Created by prominent game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger but taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario more.

Look there are no official Mario couples except for Mario and Peach to be honest so this couple I prefer! It's really cute and even though Rosalina isn't the romantic type I can see these two together. Luigi is a coward who is scared and Rosalina is tragic and runs the universe. They'd want to get through it all together right? - DCfnaf

37 Donkey Kong & Candy Kong
38 Wendy O. Koopa & Toad
39 Pom Pom & Toad
40 Chucklissa &Luigi
41 Zelda & Pit
42 Pit & Daisy
43 Peach & Pit
44 Kirby & Wigglytuff
45 Kirby & Igglybuff
46 Rick & Pick
47 Kirby & Chuchu
48 Kirby & Ribbon
49 Birdo & Popple
50 Luigi & Birdo

No offense but this would be scary, not cute
