Top Ten Underrated Shippings

Ever had a ship that it's hard to find fan art or fan fiction to? Or maybe it's just impossible to find someone who has similar interest when your ship is overshadowed by more popular ships. Then there are ships who you may feel just get unfairly hated/disliked. Here are some of my ships that I feel need more love.

The Top Ten

1 Sailorshipping (Pokemon Aqua Sapphire)

(Maxie & Matt) I feel this is overshadowed by Hardenshipping, but those two seemed so close! And two buff guys, how can you NOT like that? (okay guys don't answer... ) - Mariosprincessesfan

2 Firsttrainershipping (Pokemon G/S/C)

(Game! Red & Kris) Looking at Heartgoldshipping you'd think that maybe Kris would have a fair amount of fanart as well... but no. - Mariosprincessesfan

3 Brighttomarrowshipping (Pokemon X or Y)

I agree with the name making no sense.

But seriously there is NO artwork for this what-so ever but its relatively easy to find boutiqueshipping (which ship name makes no sense as well) and Calem went through the same fireworks scene but had extra dialog =/

Nope nope nope and did I mention nope? First of all the name of this ship makes no sense, secondly Calem and Shauna have had no sign of a relationship, and thirdly Calem is far too awesome to have a girlfriend. I hate this ship. - RiverClanRocks

(Calem & Shauna) just so overshadowed by Boutiqueshipping it's not even funny. On Calem's side she even gave him an extra line that Shauna doesn't give to Serena but it still isn't talked about and good luck finding fan art. - Mariosprincessesfan

4 Cinnaflame (Adventure Time) Cinnaflame (Adventure Time)

(Cinnabon & Flame Princess) Due to Finn's and FP previous relationship, this ship tends to be disliked as well as the problem with Cinnabon's appearance (I believe). But Cinnabon helped Flame have courage to face her father, Flame Princess has helped him become fully cooked, and he's devoted to making her happy! Too cute! - Mariosprincessesfan

5 LoverivalShipping (Pokemon R/S/E/OR/AS)

(Brendan & Wally) Brendan saw Wally grow though out the journey if you choose him so why isn't it more liked? - Mariosprincessesfan

6 Wishshipping (Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters) Wishshipping (Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters)

(Joey & Yugi) Overshadowed by Puppyshipping. They where so close and watched each others back. Yugi changed Joey from a bully while Joey always tries to help him out of trouble I mean he jumped off a boat for Yugi's cards! - Mariosprincessesfan

7 Finnceline (Adventure Time) Finnceline (Adventure Time)

(Finn & Marceline) They get along great and are themselves around each other. They go beyond for each other, but is overshadowed by Finnflame and Bubbline. - Mariosprincessesfan

8 NewRivalShipping (Pokemon R/S/E/OR/AS)

(Wally & May) Depending on who you chose, you get to help Wally and see him grow and develop throughout the journey. How cute it was if you where May that Wally looked up to her and got stronger due to her. And it seemed May was more shy, while Wally was a bit nervous so I think it would be cute. - Mariosprincessesfan

It's sad to see this on the list because (point the gun or flip the bird at me if you want) I actually like this a teeny bit more than hoennshipping. (I still adore hoennshipping )

9 Pedrew (Divergent)

When a pairing that isn't from animation (well, excluding the fan animation that is currently trapped in pre-production purgatory) makes it into the top ten on an animation-centered list, you know you've got something good on your hands.

Drew's drive to please Peter and his sheer devotion is neverending. They make an adorable couple but very few people write fanfiction for it and it is the most underrated ship in the entire trilogy. - IAMGRAPEDOGE

This pairing is so cute it should be illegal

10 Negaishipping (Pokemon Best Wishes) Negaishipping (Pokemon Best Wishes)

Mostly Hated due the the huge amout of Iris hate, but as the saga progressed, Iris showed to enjoy Ash's Company more (More so than Cilan's). She was as good of a friend as May & Dawn. Heck, I'd say she's BETTER than May & Dawn (With May only really seeing Ash as a Mentor, and Dawn not doing much with Ash aside from Train). They would often do stuff together with Cilan

(Ash & Iris) Due to Iris's hate, no one cares about Negai. But throughout Best Wishes Iris grew to enjoy Ash's company. They get along probably better than Ash and Dawn as they played and hangout with just the two of them and enjoyed each others company more than Dawn and Ash. - Mariosprincessesfan

I believe they got along very well too

Iris was a bit (a bit) of tsundere - Animefan12

The Newcomers

? Clerith (Final Fantasy 7)

Eh? It’s not really underrated. Plus it’s necrophila so gross. And please don’t say cloud should just kill himself to ‘be with his true lover! ’ Your basically approving suicide for that reason 🤮

? Powershipping (Ganondorf and Palutena)

That could actually work!

The Contenders

11 Kalosshipping (Pokemon)

I need to redo my comment because I made a mistake. It's my favorite but once again it's overshadowed by amourshipping. (Kalosshipping is the shipping with Calem and Serena)

It's my favorite but it's once again so overshadowed by amourshipping. The ship with Calem and Serena

12 Alphamalg (Undertale)

This is still, to this day, one of the funniest shippings of all time; just read the full compiled series for it and you'll understand. - xandermartin98

13 Fox McCloud and Krystal (Star Fox)

Even if it's a popular shipping, there are still some bratty, close-minded fans who don't want Fox and Krystal to be together, they often use the dramatic parts of Command's storyline of where Krystal leaves the Star Fox team as an excuse to hate the ship, thinks Lucy Hare is better for Fox than Krystal which is so wrong since Lucy never shown romance towards Fox and wants Fox to get back together with Krystal, and much worse, they even prefer crossover couples involving Fox or Krystal more than Fox and Krystal together, which is even more unlikely than even the worst same-series ships in the Star Fox fandom. The worst ideas for crossover shippings involving any of the two would be Fox with Cream the Rabbit (from Sonic) and Krystal with Shenzi (from The Lion King).

Yes! FoxxKrystal deserves more respect. Especially after reading the previous comment.

14 Nyashipping (Pokemon Advance series) Nyashipping (Pokemon Advance series)

(TR Meowth & May's Skitty) TR Meowth used to have a crush on May's Skitty and cared for it so much that it tried to keep it out of Jessie's hands cause he knew that she be mistreated. Due to this selfish-less and sweet behavior I think he'd and Skitty be cute together. - Mariosprincessesfan

15 Diodeshipping (Pokemon) Diodeshipping (Pokemon)

It's actually kind of sad to see this ship overshadowed by AmourShipping. It's criminally underrated but absolutely adorable. (And yes, I ship it.)

I'm not against Gay, but Misty is Ash's true love.

(Ash & Clemont) Yeah so overshadowed by Amour but it's really cute

16 Jack and King (Cave Story)

I just finally wrote my second story for this pairing, and OH MY GOD it is so cute. - xandermartin98

17 Inukik (Inuyasha) Inukik (Inuyasha)

Just bratty inukag fans hate this because kikyo was in the way. Except kikyo treated inuyasha with more respect, kindness, and understanding than bitchome who lets shippo be a brat to inuyasha & scolds inuyasha for doing anything when shippo is being rude to him but doesn't do nothing to shippo who started it, throws a fit when he has feelings for another girl when they are not dating but goes around & flirts with koga & tries to hookup with hojo, never stands up for inuyasha and flip out when he gets upset over koga. Inuyasha should despise her I'm sure any resenable guy would with what the b***h has done to inuyasha and if she did it to them. A good ending to her awful story would've her dying a horrible death or being left lost by herself in the past while no one cared because she's an annoying, whinny, hypocritical, dumb, b***h.

Don't care for inikik, just that it's way better than the awful inukag

18 Asgore & Toriel (Undertale)
19 Sokka (AtLA) Sokka (AtLA)

(Sokka & Suki) Hated cause of Yui and overshadowed by Tokka. It WAS the best canon couple in AtLA. The ship developed and was rushed or sudden, they got along well and they fit perfectly.

20 Soarinfire (My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic)
21 Masato Inohara and Saigusa Haruka (Little busters)
22 Koharin (Inuyasha) Koharin (Inuyasha)

(Kohaku & Rin) It's extremely over Sesshomaru & Rin but those two are around the same age and had some good and cute interactions when they were together.

23 Wario & Captain Syrup (Wario Land)

Overshadowed by Wario and Mona but both are greedy and can see them working well together.

24 Crona (Soul Eater) Crona (Soul Eater)
25 Squidward and Squilliam (Spongebob Squarepants) Squidward and Squilliam (Spongebob Squarepants)

Squidward seems to always want to impress him and freaks out when he sees him and Squiliam likes to tease him so I think its cute

26 Ron & Harry (Harry Potter series) Ron & Harry (Harry Potter series)

Overshadowed by overrated Drarry Ron and Harry seemed to understand each other, get along well, and sacrificed so much for each other it's way better than Drarry.

27 Wario and Mona (WarioWare)
28 Conker and Rodent (Conker's Bad Fur Day)
29 SpecialJewelShipping (Pokemon Special/Pokemon Adventures)
30 Alphasgore (Undertale)
31 Tails & Zooey (Sonic Boom)

I so agree with this one. Tails and Zooey are perfect for each other. Cream should never be in a relationship and is a terrible character. Plus, Zooey is an awesome addition to Sonic Boom.

32 Barry & Dawn (Pokemon P/D/P)

You can't say that this isn't a cute couple.

33 Shadow & Rouge (Sonic) Shadow & Rouge (Sonic)

Often hated because people think KnucklesXRouge is canon (which it's not, Rouge is just a flirt who wants the Master Emerald and Knuckles hates her), or because they want Shadow to be ice-hearted, a complete loner who hates everyone, and bloodthirsty, which he is not the latter. Shadow and Rouge are perfect for each other, to be honest. They are always on the same team and they seem to have chemistry going on. And no, they're not brother and sister. Rouge flirts with Shadow too, for goodness sake. (Want proof? Play Sonic Battle's story mode)

34 Pearlshipping (Ash X Dawn)
35 Geekchic Shipping (Clemont x Serena) Geekchic Shipping (Clemont x Serena)

They are meant for each other, even if it doesn't show it.

36 Friendlyshipping (Clemont and Dawn)

They actually have a lot in common!

37 CaringShipping (Clemont and Dawn)

They have a lot in common, those two.
1. They're both great cooks.
2. They were the nicest companions Ash ever had.
3. They both have an obsession (AKA Clemont with Science, Dawn with Dancing).
4. They both saved lives (Clemont saved Ash and Serena, Dawn saved Piplup).
5. They had their relationships broken up (Clemont with Lillia, Dawn with Kenny).
See? That's PROOF!
