Why Sasuke and Sakura is the Worst Canon Couple Ever

It’s a mystery why this couple became so popular. It’s toxic, stupid, and makes zero sense. I get Naruto is a Shonnen anime, but even vegeta & Bulma was a less damaging couple than Sasusaku (even though it made less sense).

The Top Ten

1 Sakura Shows Nothing but an Unhealthy Obsession/Crush on Sasuke

At least with naruto and hinata we know they like each other because of their common struggles as kids and uplifting each other in dire circumstances.
The sad part is because sakura and sasuke were on same team unlike hinata there were more chances for her to see a reason to like sasuke but she just constantly chases him for no reason except for being a hot guy and randomly says she loves him. There was so much time to develop but it didn't. It was all just for plot sake just like her random ass powerups with no previous explanation during the war...which still made her so weak...

When sasuke was leaving Konaha in P1 Sakura literally said something along the lines of:
“You hate me don’t you? Please don’t leave me! I have family & friends, but I’ll be just as lonely as you if you leave! Stay with me, & I’ll make you happy! Or take me with you! Don’t go! I’ll scream! ” Like talk about stupid obsessed desperate fangirl! And he still left her, so yes Sakura he hates you. And Sakura supposably spent time with him, got to know the real sasuke, & ‘feel in love’ with him. If that is the case, why could she find nothing to say to even make sasuke consider staying with her? No. She was just a stupid fangirl all throughout naruto & naruto shippudden, except she got what she wanted in the end for no reason except most likely profit & baruto. I wish sasuke went to jail forever & Sakura ether got a f-ing brain & moved on from sasuke or just died.

Hinata has a reason why she feel for naruto (he’s a proud failure), naruto’s parents has a reason why they loved each other, jeria had a reason why he liked Tsunade,even f-ing Karen gave us a reason why she fell for sasuke. But Sakura’s only reason for liking sasuke only seems to steem from ‘hez so hawtt & misterus! 2! 2! 2! 1! 1! 1! 1’ - person5000

2 Sasuke Never Showed to Care for Sakura Beyond His Teammate

Sasuke tolerated her, and that's it. - evell

I actually think that this is a really forced relation and as sasuke was supposed to be naruto's rival and naruto ended up with hinata and got settled so sasuke had to be paired up with someone...and the most probable (actually may be only) girl would be sakura...😫

There are some times where sasuke showed to care about her well being, but that isn’t proof enough that sasuke is in love with her! Sakura has shown concern over naruto too, but again that doesn’t prove she wants to marry naruto! And Sakura isn’t even the only one he’s shown concern over, ether. - person5000

3 It Hindered Sakura’s Character

Everything Sakura did was about sasuke. She had no motivations in P1 other than sasuke. And it made her seem like a huge pushover & a huge hindrance having her ‘love’ sasuke. She sets out to kill him TWICE, but both times couldn’t do it. Still loving him, even when he stabs, Chokes, & shoves his hand through her heart. I thought she became a strong smart woman in Shippuden 🙄 - person5000

In part 2 during a important fight, sasuke was focused on important things, & she feels sad because “sasuke didn't notice her”. OH BOO HOO! YOUR IN A WAR! Maybe Sakura should get over it & do something useful! The beginning of P2 she basically fought sasori by herself as that granny’s strings got wrecked & so Sakura was dodging & fighting sasori herself. Why is she only able to cry about sasuke noticing her when sasukes around? And in buruto, if Naruto did what sasuke did & she was married to Naruto we all know Sakura would’ve divorced his @$$. And that time Sakura tried to get a kiss from sasuke but sasuke just left, if Naruto did that to Sakura we all know Sakura would send Naruto flying! If Naruto only spend 2 1/2 mins with her on a “date” she’d dump him! (Not a narusaku fan, just saying). Sakura is such a tool for sasuke. That is not how you are supposed to be for your significant other.

4 They Both Attempted to Kill Each Other

Sasuke maybe ‘darkeness influenced him’ or whatever. But Sakura gave up on sasuke & was set to kill him. & even if it was ‘darkness’ or whatever, it doesn’t make sense that Sakura would be so nonchalant about what sasuke did to them. - person5000

5 Sasuke Continuously Leaves Behind Sakura

Sakura bagged sasuke to take her with her and to not go in P1. Sasuke gave no fffs & knocked her out & left her @$$ on the bench in the middle of the night. So romantic 🙄

Then when they have a child he lies to her & forces her to take care of the child all by herself. Still don’t understand why she is still sticking with sasuke like glue at this point. - person5000

6 Sasuke Tells Sakura that She’s Annoying & Useless

In the original Japanese sasuke tells Sakura “you disgust me! ” which is worse lol.

Like Sakura told ‘sasuke’ that she didn’t like naruto because ‘he’s so annoying,’ sasuke told Sakura to her face that she’s annoying. This means he doesn’t like her personality (the most important thing, not looks people). Probably why he left her when he knocked her up, still found her annoying.

Plus there are plenty of times she also calls her useless. One in particular in P1 Sakura asked sasuke to train with her, & sasuke told her that she was weaker than naruto. It really hurt her, & yes people there is a thing called verbal abuse. - person5000

7 Sakura Attacked Their Child Because of Their Questioning Relationship

Sakura is crazy, she turned a mother that throws tantrums for simple questions. I feel so sorry for Sarada, she is a good girl who asked fair questions about her father and got mental and physical threatens in response. - evell

She got that angry because she was insecure about her own marriage. It shows that they really have a broken family and need to divorce at least for their child's safety

To bad sasuke doesn’t know about this, because if he knew, he’d probably would’ve come straight back home & actually achive of killing her this time. - person5000

8 Sausuke Never Even Tried to Help Out with Their Child

Sasuke tried to kill Sarada because he didn't recognize her, he had no idea how she looked nad never bored to visit her. This is really messed up - evell

Their child didn’t even knew what their dad looked like, & was depressed with that fact. - person5000

9 He always cared about Naruto more than her

It's true. He's always paid more attention to Naruto than her, and they have a much deeper connection. Sasuke even said that if Naruto was dead, then Sasuke was truly alone. Sakura never came close to anything those two had.

10 Sakura’s Shallow Reasoning of Destroying Her Friendship with Ino Cuz She Also Liked Sasuke

This right here made me root for sasuino, just to spite Sakura even though sasuke never communicated with ino & ino was pretty much just as annoying with her crush on sasuke as Sakura was. - person5000

The Contenders

11 Any Other Sasuke or Sakura Paring Seems Healthier

Lee and Sakura actually makes more sense. Sakura can move on from shallow fangirl obsession to liking a guy not for his looks but a good person he is like Lee. She did also give him flowers showed major indication of some feelings and he tried to save her from enemies they treated each other with lots of respect.

I like SaixIno, but even InoxSakura would've made more sense than Sakura ending up with Sasuke. Ino never tried to kill Sakura and at least Sakura wasn't brainlessly letting herself get abused with Ino, which also shows the ridiculousness of SasuSaku- Sakura is always rude, defensive, and disputing towards others, yet for Sasuke she lets more things slide by than Hinata, and even Hinata, in Boruto, has a moment that isn't of submissivness, while Sakura is never shown having even the skigbest of diagreemnt with Sasuke abandoning her and their OWN CHILD. Wooow...Kishimoto, what?

Practically any other character would’ve made more sense & less harmful to end with sasuke & Sakura. - person5000

12 Sasuke and Sakura are the Worst Parents Ever

I wouldn't say worst parents ever, considering that guys like Gaara's father, Kawaki parents exist, but for sure they are bad parents and the worst among their generation. Sakura is crazy and doesn't know how to deal with anyone that's not her crush, and Sasuke just abandoned his daugther and wife - evell

I mean common one leaves there daughter behind for 12 years or more and the other treats her daughter like crap.

13 They have a broken marriage

Sasuke and sakura had no affection and the result is a marriage that is broken and sakura struggles as a single mother and their own daughter suffers

14 Sasuke Tried to Kill Her 3 Times
15 Sasuke cares about Naruto much more than Sakura

I find it odd sasuke has time to see naruto & his kids, but he doesn't see his own daughter or wife for 10 + years or even write to them at the very least. =/

16 Sakura doesn’t know sasuke

She is extremely privileged girl who will never understand the struggles of living in a shinobi world so she makes fun of people with lesser means than her. She is just a horrible person who will never understand anything about sasuke's pain or his feelings and his actions. How can this couple work?

She is never able to convince him to stay with her, she didn’t know he was an orphan, NARUTO had to save sasuke from the darkness, she forgot he didn’t wear glasses ever, doesn’t understand sasuke doesn’t want to associate with the uchiha clan, & doesn’t understand how sasuke really feels about the forehead poke (like stupid sasusaku fans lol).

17 Naruto was required for it to happen

Sakura never convicted sasuke of anything & always relied on naruto to help sasuke, & was never able to help him out herself. Only naruto understood sasuke & was the only one who had any guts to talk to him when he was doing bad things. Sakura never understood sasuke & only acted selfishly for her crush... oops I mean ‘her love’

18 It gives a wrong view on what a healthy relationship is supposed to be

Don’t love a guy who calls you annoying & useless & refuses to kiss you & wont pay child support & never sees you or your child when he obviously can & has tried to kill you & when you have spent little time with him.

19 Sakura's confessions to Sasuke were always about herself

She never cared about his feelings or why she likes him. Its always "if you go I will suffer! " which is selfish and manipulative and forceful.

The worst part of her confessions is that it doesn’t show love at all, just desperation just for sasuke to “love” her. In part 1 confession for example, she cries out to take her with, when she knows sasuke is going to Orochimaru & she doesn’t agree with that decision (as her first choice was to convince him to stay). But since that failed, she then tried to go with him regardless, saying “she’ll do anything he wants”! Then when he brushed her off, tried to force him to stay by saying she’ll scream. Not caring about what he wants again, & just caring that she’s going ‘to be extremely sad’ with sasuke gone. So her confession don’t show love at all, just desperation from a pathetic fangirl who can never move on.

20 Sasuke abandoned Sarada and Sakura for 10 years
21 They didn’t spend much time together besides required missions


All the had was like a 2
& 1/2 min date. Really sasusaku fans like to brag how ‘realistic’ sasusaku is, if two people had a 2 1/2 min date they more than likely wouldn’t be married or even dating anymore.

22 Sakura acts like a fangirl instead of being herself around sasuke

Around other people, Sakura speaks her mind, doesn’t let others walk over her, is confident, isn’t a doormat, etc... However around sasuke she acts weak & stupid & lets sasuke do & say what he wants regardless of how she feels. Even KM says this. NO SAKURA! You are supposed to act like yourself & not have to be a different person around your S.O.!

23 Gives a bad name to anime shippings overall

Okay I hate shippings that absolutely don’t make sense especially this one not only is it forced but really toxic this gives people and writers the habit of shipping characters who are not meant to be

24 Sasuke deserved better

Sakura never understood his motivations. She only cared about how she feels. Its always Me me me. Sasuke just wanted to be left alone. He wanted peace. Not a forced marriage and unwanted kid who is an additional burden. He does not care about sakura. He only cares about itachi and his own family.

25 It is one-sided

Sasuke does not love sakura. If he was not her teammate they would not have even spent time as he does not want to hang out with her.

26 Sasuke refused to kiss Sakura for a goodbye after 10 years, and let her waiting
