Worst Anime Couples

Anime is full of couples that are very entertaining, but some just get on everyone's nerves or don't go well together. This is a list for the latter, bad couples from anime.

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Gohan & Videl (Dragon Ball Z) Gohan & Videl (Dragon Ball Z)

Why? I think they are a really sweet couple. - Goku02

Cutest couple in dbz

Videl acts like a bitch towards him before they got together. I think there was one part in the manga where Videl cuts her hair because she thinks Gohan finds short hair sexier, then gets mad at him for not noticing her hair or something. Why couldn't he have ended up with the nicer blonde girl (Erasa)?

22 Ryoga Hibiki and Ukyo Kounji (Ranma 1/2) Ryoga Hibiki and Ukyo Kounji (Ranma 1/2)
23 Ichigo Kurosaki and Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach) Ichigo Kurosaki and Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach)

Rukia always treated Ichigo like a kid, there wasn't anything romantic. Rukia looked like an older sister or a mentor.

2 characters that weren't in love with each other but this couple fans couldn't accept it.

Seeing fan arts of them as a romantic couple is very weird, it doesn't feel credible.

This is not couple material.

24 Kirito and Asuna (Sword Art Online) Kirito and Asuna (Sword Art Online)

Bland Marty Stu and his unfortunate love interest who always gets shelved for his development.

I hate them and when I see how people say they are the best couple it really makes me angry I mean A lot of great couple anime is out there why these two boring with zero chemistry are the best?! I would love the anime if these two never get together

Another thing is that all the girl in this anime fall for kirito what is that?

I think sauna can do better with someone older than her (I don't like those couples that boy is younger or is the same age with the girl, boy most be older the girl, it makes it hooot but not to old)

As long as Kirito isn't paired with Suguha (even if she wasn't his cousin, I still wouldn't ship them), I'm okay with this couple. But I will admit as a person who loves SAO that they're overrated. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Kirito is always making other girls vaginas wet.

25 Eren & Mikasa (Attack on Titan) Eren & Mikasa (Attack on Titan)

While Mikasa definitely shows interest in Eren, there is absolutely no hint of reciprocation on Eren's part. In addition, while it isn't actually incest, Eren views Mikasa as a sister. As in other stories with similar couplings (Mansfield Park by Jane Austen comes to mind,) it gives this coupling an incestuous air

Although not as bad as the incest in The Irregular At Magic High School, I don't really like this shipping even though Mikasa is an adopted sister. Plus, her romantic interest seems to be a potential disaster for the anime. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Mikasa and yuno are no match for eren and yuki. I can ship annie and eren

I don’t agree with this couple simply because:
1. Eren doesn’t seem to like Mikasa in that way
2. Mikasa is way too possessive
3. They are technically related!

That’s just my opinion thanks

26 Korra and Mako (The Legend of Korra) Korra and Mako (The Legend of Korra)

Korra and Mako are as terrible together as they are apart. There is little to no build up between their friendship or their romance and then they are so on and off again it makes me sick. Plus Mako is a no good cheat! This sequel to the Avatar series lacked in character relationship development between the leads. If you compare the original Avatar series those characters friendships and relationships were a lot deeper and more developed. Mako kept flipping back and forth between the 2 girls and lost a lot of respect from me. By the middle of the series I just wanted him gone and luckily he wasn't in as many episodes. Korra became more bearable later without Mako. It's such a shame. This series had some likable side characters but the romance between these two causes the whole series ratings to drop.

These two are just so...UGH! Korra KISSES Mako while he's dating another girl, and Mako KISSES BACK! Then, Mako breaks Asami's heart, and gets with Korra. AND THEY SPEND EVERY. SINGLE. SECOND. OF THE SERIES FIGHTING/ARGUING! damn!

Not another love hate relationship.

27 Ranma Sao-tome and Akane Tendo (Ranma 1/2) Ranma Sao-tome and Akane Tendo (Ranma 1/2)

Neither of them deserve to be forced to be together as a couple by their irresponsible, lazy fathers at all, do they? No they don't. They both need to move on from each other.

Wonder what's it like if Ranma was portrayed to be Sesshomaru and Inuyasha's younger/youngest half brother and his mother, Nodoka was Sesshomaru and Inuyasha's stepmother and the third wife/another wife/mate of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha's father so far anyway? Huh?

Neither of them deserve to be forced to be together as a couple by their irresponsible, lazy fathers at all

Great, just what we need, another love hate/hot and cold relationship couple….

28 Dan Kuso & Runo Misaki (Bakugan) Dan Kuso & Runo Misaki (Bakugan)

This couple's hard to like all because of the love hate relationship between these/those two, especially because of their constant bickering mostly. I dislike love hate relationships. They behave more like siblings, don't they? Yup.

29 Gray Fullbuster and Juvia Lockser Gray Fullbuster and Juvia Lockser

Definitely unhealthy and one sided. Gray has never shown any signs of liking Juvia, he always gets a horrified and disgusted look on his face whenever she tries to flirt with him or something. I have no idea why people ship this pairing so much... You might say it looks cute but it will end up badly.

The hopeless crush on Gray literally ruined Juvia's character! I want the badass S-class water mage back, not a creepy stalker! That being said, I still like Juvia now when she's not drooling over Gray. - Goku02

Very one-sided.

I just don't like the way she always stick around gray and stalk on gray and especially she always said "love rival" to everyone even frosch too! I mean hey... it just she's too overprotective on gray while she isn't gray's girlfriend

Incent. That's it.

Ikuto and amu forever...

31 Vegeta and Bulma Vegeta and Bulma

This is actually good. Did you guys see the way Vegeta cared for her in Battle of Gods? Any one who messes with her will die. Vegeta got so mad at Goku Black he overpowered him. Yeah, the way it started off was bad but it's pretty good now.

Their getting together is random, out of the blue and poorly-written, but I still like them. Not sure why. Maybe because they're awesome as individuals and they look good together. - Goku02

Dude, thank you. This is the worst pairing I have EVER come across. Toriyama only paired them up because he needed some random woman who wasn't already married to explain Trunk's conception. Recently, Toriyama likes this pairing for some reason, but it still doesn't change the fact that they were randomly put together.

This pairing is more like a horrible crack pairing out of some fanfic than an actual pairing to me. I mean come on, a crazy homicidal maniac with a boring Mary-sue like character? It's just so forced and feels unnatural, I mean yeah Bulma likes him because she likes badboys, but Vegeta's lack of interest in her makes it look one-sided. Plus I think an in character Vegeta would be too proud to put up with someone who tries to boss him around.

And later on, I can accept the fact that he generally cares about Bulma (in the same manner that he cares about his son), but there doesn't seem to be anything more than that. When the future version of his son gets ...more

Vegeta and Bulma (DBZ) = Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele (Fifty Shades of Grey)

And believe it or not, both of them are actually WORSE than Twilight!

The very fact that this pairing gets any recognition as a "romantic couple", even outside from the anime community, truly makes me sick. This pairing was never even meant to be a "thing", and at any rate, it's not healthy. If you think otherwise... I pray for your sake. I really do.

32 Zeref and Mavis (Fairy Tail)

How in the hell did Mavis give birth to a kid while she was "dead"? And they pretty much hate each other now.

33 Sinon and Kyouji (Sword Art Online) Sinon and Kyouji (Sword Art Online)

Yes, this is a terrible couple. I liked Kyouji at first, but then episode 13 happened. Sinon is a very forgiving person. - lavashooter

I have seen Sword Art Online 2 but from what I have seen, I don't think they were ever a couple to begin with. - SelfDestruct

No contest, this would be a terrible ship. He's a creepy stalker.

He's just as bad as Sugou, he's a traitor, he's ugly and he's creepy. Shino played into his hands so he get her, so lesson learned, make sure your boyfriend isn't a psychopath before you date him.

P.S there weren't really a couple

35 Inuyasha and Kikyo Inuyasha and Kikyo

Well, they're better than Inuyasha x Kagome. - Goku02

This couple is better than Inuyasha and Kagome anyway mostly all because I especially don't like love hate relationships at all.

I love this couple and their relationship never ever even deserves to change for worse nor for the worst at all, does it? No it doesn't. Naraku pitted those two against each other.

I rather like this couple mostly all because I dislike regular love hate relationships. Tragic couples are better than regular couples anyway.

Standing alone is better than standing with...STOP POSTING THAT GODFORSAKING CHAIN THING! - lavashooter

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

One word to describe this: INCEST! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

They are siblings right

38 Amu Hinamori and Ikuto Tsukiyomi Amu Hinamori and Ikuto Tsukiyomi

Some might say: Age is a just a number! Yeah right, and jail is just a building. Love shouldn't be pedophilic.

He's way too old for her.

She's only 12 and he's 17. How is that okay?

This couple is cliché (the sexy bad boy with the shy, whiny, annoying protagonist), overrated (so sick of Amuto everywhere) plus he's almost 18 and SHE'S JUST 14! But people ship it whatsoever. "Age is just a number","love is love" uh...and what if a 45 years old is with a 17 years old IS THAT A NORMAL THING?! Nope.

39 Tyson and Hilary (Beyblade V Force)

They're actually good together. - Haterssuck

40 Lelouch and Kallen (Code Geass) Lelouch and Kallen (Code Geass)

No. Just no.

I see Kallen x Lelouch(a.k.a Kalulu) as nothing more than a fanservice ship. In other words, a ship that exists only for fans. Kallen is one of my favourite characters, but not as Lelouch's love interest. And this ship lacks chemistry. Why did the Code Geass wiki even said that Kallen is Lelouch's "trophy girlfriend"(It says as that Kallen is the most complex love interest of Lelouch, which Isn't true). C.C will always be Lelouch's trophy girlfriend(no, since I said girlfriend, Nunnally and Euphy don't count). They had more chemistry and they don't need shoved in the face romance to be sweet and deep for a ship. - MLPFan

Why is this even a thing? Lelouch's heart was always C.C's...
Lelouch x Kallen is the worst joke told by Taniguchi. It is so bad nobody remembers he made this crap canon.
