Most Unrealistic Anime Couples

These are the couples that you just find too unrealistic to actually ever happen. They either have so chemistry together or are so bad to each other that it's baffling how they got together in the first place. And no these don't have to be canon, they can be absurd ships that you see on the internet. Please remember that this is my opinion on these certain ships. You're free to add in your own. I'll put in my ten choices and the rest is up to you.

The Top Ten

1 Sasuke and Sakura (Naruto) Sasuke and Sakura (Naruto)

It's impossible to believe Sasuke loves, or even likes, her, after not contacting with his supposed "wife" and daughter for 10 years, not even a call or a letter. They not even had a photo together, as a couple, Sakura had to use the photo of another women. Sasuke not even wants to kiss, or, at the very least, to show some gesture of affect to her, after being away for 10 years and going again to another travel.
And Sakura accepts all of this! And she still looks a retarded teenager in love with her crush. And its fans praise this Sakura's idiocy as if this means her love is very faithful. Her "love", and Sasuke and Sakura's relationship is, fortunately, unrealistic.

Who is this appealing to? Girls who like being rejected, insulted and beaten by a boy just because you have the hots for him? Boys who enjoy being chased around by an unwanted obsessive creeper begging him to like her?
If want a relationship like this you have serious mental issues. This is the worst couple on earth

Why? Why is this canon? Why does Sakura feel anything for this guy who tried to kill her? He ignored her for the majority of his life, so why does Sakura even like Sasuke? I just have so many questions, and there is no reasonable answer. Sakura could've done so much better.

In real life sasuke would call the police on sakura and get a restraining order on her

2 Light and Misa (Death Note) Light and Misa (Death Note)

Misa is supposed to be 'smart' but can't catch a clue that Light doesn't like her. All he has to do is give her a meaningless kiss and she's his damn slave. She'll be held kidnapped if it means protecting her dear Light, even though he uses her. And she doesn't mind that at all. - RoseRedFlower

He made it damn obvious to her that he was just using her. And like a retard, she listened to him - TwilightKitsune

Just a psycho and retarded girl, most couples today. except for you guys, I love you (doggy voice) - EliHbk

3 Aki and Sora (Aki Sora) Aki and Sora (Aki Sora)

What, lesbo is okay... but siblings! - EliHbk

All these two do is have sex and they're siblings. They have no chemistry outside of that. Oh and Aki rapes Sora. He clearly says no but she doesn't stop. It was disgusting and VERY unrealistic. - RoseRedFlower

4 Yui and Ayato (Diabolik Lovers) Yui and Ayato (Diabolik Lovers)

Subaru already gave her a dagger to kill vampires but she didn't use it

Diabolik Lovers is just bad in general. And it's about as romantic as dying children.

She's paired with many guys but Ayato seems to be the most popular one. This guy constantly calls her a bitch and tries to suck her blood. Yet Yui doesn't fight back against him at all? Any girl who found out they were in a mansion with a bunch of vampires, would run for their lives. Yui doesn't because plot. The male lead is a creep who assaults Yui within the first few minutes of the anime and Yui doesn't have the courage to ever stand up for his cruel actions. - RoseRedFlower

5 Levi and Eren (Attack on Titan) Levi and Eren (Attack on Titan)

I never have understood this pairing. First, there's the age difference. Levi is in his 30s while Eren is 15. Levi and Eren seem to really hate each other. Like that one scene where Levi beat the crap outta Eren. Also, Mikasa would never let this happen. She'd probably kill Levi.

This one is just confusing. I don't see how this one is so popular with the Yaoi girls. At least with certain anime, I understand why they ship certain guys or girls with each other. But these two have no interest with each other and don't have any chemistry to be a couple. And please don't send me hate comments of how I'm homophobic. I have friends who are gay, lesbian and are bisexual. I know there's nothing wrong with Yaoi or Yuri couples. This one is just puzzling of how it's so popular. - RoseRedFlower

I honestly don't why it's shipped so much. And isn't Levi 30? - TwilightKitsune

Is Levi gay?

I haven't seen any evidence myself to support that. He doesn't seem to have an attraction towards anyone to be honest. That's just my opinion. - RoseRedFlower

6 Kyouya and Erika (Wolf Girl and Black Prince) Kyouya and Erika (Wolf Girl and Black Prince)

I can't believe these two ended up becoming a real couple. If a male ended up treating his girlfriend like a dog, you would be disgusted by it. But in this anime, we're supposed to find it...charming? That's the vibe I got. Erika clearly hates being treated like this but doesn't stop him because she wants to have friends. And pretending to date Kyouya is the only way to assure that. Real sad and really unrealistic. - RoseRedFlower

7 Ash and Serena (Pokemon) Ash and Serena (Pokemon)

Ash has shown no interest of girls in his life and if he did, Serena would be the last person he would date. She's always whining, always gets herself into trouble, never stops fawning over him and she never shuts up. Would anyone want a girlfriend like that? - RoseRedFlower

8 Saito and Louise (The Familiar of Zero) Saito and Louise (The Familiar of Zero)

She dehumanizes him, treating him like an animal. She once made him go without food for a while, and made him sleep on straw on the floor while she slept in a huge comfy bed. He was taken from his world against his will and treated horribly. At least some of the other characters treated him better, and he goes and marries rage-aholic. Don't buy it, sorry.

The only way this can be realistic is Stockholm syndrome

Would any male honestly date a girl who kidnaps you from home, takes away your meal privileges and beats you like a slave? I'm sure most would say no. Yet in the end, he chooses her to marry. Out of all the nice sweet girls, he chose her? Why? - RoseRedFlower

9 Makoto and Kotonoha (School Days) Makoto and Kotonoha (School Days)

What girl would take this guy back? He flat out dumps her, doesn't show up to see her when she needs and on top of all of that, he has sex with several other females. Why would she still think he's her boyfriend and forgive him after all the crap he's done? It's just out of nowhere and makes the anime even less tolerable. - RoseRedFlower

Not to mention the fact that she beheads her boyfriend after finding out she was cheated on, and cut open the stomach of his side chick, who claimed to be pregnant and that the baby was his.

10 Ichigo and Orihime (Bleach) Ichigo and Orihime (Bleach)

They're just so boring together

Cough cough, Rukia was the one, cough cough

This was an okay in my book.

Its really bad.


The Newcomers

? Todoroki and Yaoyorozu (My Hero Academia)

The Contenders

11 Gray and Juvia (Fairy Tail) Gray and Juvia (Fairy Tail)

This couple sends a horrible message. "If you stalk and constantly harrass your crush with your unhealthy, obsessive actions, they'll eventually grow to like you! " Just... no.

Of course... the most unrealistic couple. - cana_alberona

Best couple. Completely reverses expectation...

NO! NO! NO! This is not a ship. It will never be a ship!

12 Luffy and Nami (One Piece) Luffy and Nami (One Piece)

What? its one of the most possible pairings in One piece community, this shouldn't even be on the list lol - Shadowforce162


Any Luffy ship is unrealistic to be honest. Except meat of course - smill

What a stupid ship

13 Eren and Mikasa (Attack on Titan) Eren and Mikasa (Attack on Titan)

Mikasa was clinging to him the entire of season 1 whereas he just kept ignoring her. Very unrealistic pairing. - Tia-Harribel

If she wasn't his adopted sister, I would be fine with this couple.

They're not blood related and she wasn't adopted or anything, Eren's parents just let her live with them. And Eren clearly doesn't see her as his sister, so I don't see any problem - smill

14 Goku and Chi Chi (Dragon Ball Z) Goku and Chi Chi (Dragon Ball Z)

I don't like them that much - Kirishima

15 Zoro and Robin (One Piece) Zoro and Robin (One Piece)

Worst ship ever

Frobin (Franky x Robin) is a more pairing better and does make more sense than ZoroBin and other pair with Robin. Super! A true pairing/couple is supposed to be more than to look better and have some stuff in common

Ah, well! These two are the perfect example of a stupid and absurd couple that will never come true and how much people are so desperate to convince themselves otherwise!
"There will be no romance between the Straw Hat crew": where's the part that you fans don't understand?

They don't have any chemistry, sure Zoro saves her, but only as a nakama. Fans literally ship them just because they stand next to each other - smill

16 Tatsuya and Miyuki (The Irregular At Magic High School) Tatsuya and Miyuki (The Irregular At Magic High School)

They're siblings with no chemistry. Yeah, that's all I need to say. - RoseRedFlower

17 Naruto and Hinata (Naruto) Naruto and Hinata (Naruto)


18 Vegeta and Bulma (Dragon Ball Z) Vegeta and Bulma (Dragon Ball Z)

The way they got together is very unrealistic.

Hey! This couple's awesome! WAY better than Goku and Chi Chi!

19 Panty and Brief (Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt) Panty and Brief (Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt)
20 America and Belarus (Hetalia) America and Belarus (Hetalia)

Honestly, I will never understand WHY and HOW this freak of nature of a pairing came to be in the first place... It just doesn't make ANY sense. Even just visually, it makes me sick.
I'll tell it straight - it's the worst pairing in Hetalia, for me. - MarByz

21 Pico and Tamotsu (Boku no Pico) Pico and Tamotsu (Boku no Pico)

Kill me now.

22 Subaru and Emilia (Re:Zero -Starting Life In Another World-) Subaru and Emilia (Re:Zero -Starting Life In Another World-)

Eh... why unrealistic? it's a CANON couple you guys! maybe you guys are Rem fans (well, I am too) so that you dislike this couple? :( this is just frustrating - cana_alberona

23 Utau Hoshina and Ikuto Tsukiyomi (Shugo Chara!) Utau Hoshina and Ikuto Tsukiyomi (Shugo Chara!)
24 Shinichi Kudo and Ran Mouri Shinichi Kudo and Ran Mouri
25 Edward and Winry (Fullmetal Alchemist) Edward and Winry (Fullmetal Alchemist)
26 Takano and Ritsu Onodera (Sekaiichi Hatsukoi) Takano and Ritsu Onodera (Sekaiichi Hatsukoi)

Their relationship is just unrealistic! How the hell can Takano still be able to deal with a stupid and unlikable Tsundere like Ritsu? Ritsu, if you don’t want him, get out of his life! Stop distract him like everything is his fault, you little obnoxious bitch! - Angelatran

27 Momo and Touji (Peach Girl) Momo and Touji (Peach Girl)
28 Edward Elric and Roy Mustang (Fullmetal Alchemist)

I have no idea why this is popular. First of all, Roy is like in his 30s while Ed is 15, second of all, they both have a big rivalry. Ed hates his guts. Finally, Roy may care for Ed, but that's more of a father-son relationship than a couple. Now take it or leave it. This is the worst and most unrealistic couple. - TheDarkOne_221b

29 Nico and Maki (Love Live! School Idol Project)
30 Nowaki and Hiroki (Junjou Romantica)
31 Russia and Belarus (Hetalia)

Incest and Russia is scared of her
