The Top Ten

1 Link & Zelda

Link has been shipped many times with other characters in the whole Zelda series. But if you think about it that would just defeat the whole purpose of the game. Then Link would not want to go waste his time on Zelda. In Breath of the Wild, Link literally wakes up from a 100 year slumber and does not remember anything! And if it wasnt for Link to save Hyrule, then Hyrule would just turn into ashes. Once you defeat Ganon, Zelda is saved and so is Hyrule ( a happily ever after.) Lets say he fell in love with another character in the game now do you think he would save Hyrule? And even if he did I'm pretty sure Zelda would be devastated. What a crappy game that would be! And for those of you that are thinking no Link should 100% be with so and so. I respect you this is just coming through my personal opinion. Nintendo did a great job of a bunch of diffrent choices Link could be with. Zelda well she literally is in the title of all of the Zelda franchise names. And they clearly love each ...more

This pairing literally transcends time! How many couples can say that?

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

Best ship to be honest

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

EWWW, these two do NOT make sense together!

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

Fox and Krystal are my favorite characters in Star Fox and they are a great couple that I love.

They look really cute together in super Smash Bros Ultimate!

UGH! Fox is so ugly, and so is Krystal! They are the ugliest things EVER! UGHHH!

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

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

This couple sucks

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 Diddy Kong & Tiny Kong
12 Nana & Popo (Ice Climber)
13 Shulk & Fiora


14 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.

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", you've obviously done something right.

They're lovely, and I love them - Loveowls9

15 Kafei & Anju (Majora's Mask)


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

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

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.

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".

18 Ness & Paula

RE why this isn't at least number 3: that Samus/Little Mac fanboy who remixed this list, that's why.

Why isn't this at least 3? - Shulk

19 Diddy & Dixie
20 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

21 Pit & Samus
22 Mario & Pauline

Is true. Relationship started in Donkey Kong game back in 19th century.

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

Pauline is Mario's Mom

She isn't?
Pauline calls Mario her "old friend", meaning that she sees him as one of her good old friends. - starryrcad

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 Donkey Kong & Candy Kong
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 Kirby & Ribbon

They kiss at the end of Kirby 64

33 Link and Malon
34 Ephraim & Eirika

They're siblings, not a couple.

35 Quote & Curly

They're from Nintendo?

36 Jack & King (Cave Story)
37 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

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

No offense but this would be scary, not cute
