Worst Fairy Tail Couples

What is the couple you hate in Fairy Tail? Sadly I have to put every couple even the semi canon couples.

The Top Ten

1 Juvia and Gray

ALRIGHT! RANT TIME! So, after the series finished, I came to (kind of) accept the fact that Gruvia would most likely be canon. HOWEVER, I cannot stand every 'romantic', as Gruvia fans would call it, moment they share together. In fact, I visibly cringe when it shows on screen. It's just so, wrong for me. The relationship between Gray and Juvia is like, a person jamming a radio until it works. And that person is Juvia. Seriously, what kind of sane person would nag their crush until they like them back?

"Oh, but Gray cares for Juvia! " you might say. And, as much as I hate to admit it, you're right. But, in my perspective, in the same way for any other of his guildmates. As family. Their love for each other is just one-sided, not mutual.

Also, I don't know what's with Gray (yes, it's partly Gray's fault for why I hate the ship). If I were him (I pretty much have the same personality traits as him, so I could put myself in his shoes), I wouldn't even like her to begin with. ...more - MirajaneStrauss

She is a creepy stalker that forces herself and her feelings down his throat every time despite him not liking her that way. And he gets guilt-tripped by Erza and other characters for not naturally returning her feelings. When he rejects her, she won't take no for an answer and to her it means she "has to try harder". Gray isn't a tsundere, he has no problem showing how much he cares for Erza, Lucy, and the rest of the guild. At best I can accept the tsundere argument for Natsu, but it's mostly because they are rivals. Sure he cares for Juvia, but the same way he cares for Erza or Lucy: it's pure friendship. - Liinde

This! No offense, but Juvia is LITERALLY nobody outside of Gray, because every time she gets a bit of screen time, she just HAS to mention this guy.

What are her hobbies? Interests? Ambitions? I think no fan can answer any of these (and provide proof) without mentioning something with Gray.

Honestly, she has so much potential, but is literally just a satellite of a main character. If GruVia's gender were reversed, I doubt the pairing would've been as popular. She didn't even accept a no and just continued to shower him with affection. So why is Gray suddenly returning her feelings? It doesn't make sense at all and also doesn't give a good message to the fans.

Juvia is an obsessed stalker who only has eyes for Gray, who doesn't even like her.

2 Jellal and Kagura

I hate this ships more then anything! I hate that picture as well! Why the heck did hiro do this?! Kagura just kisses Jellal while he's out?! She looks like a disgusting kisser anyways! I hope the anime turns out different!

This ship suck D.

I feel like correct grammar is no longer important.

The only people that say this and bash the ship is butt hurt Jerza fangirls.

3 Natsu and Lucy

Kind of cliche and boring. Feels like they're shipped only because they're the main characters. I mean come on, they treat everyone in the guild the same way! - Liinde

It's the fans that make you want to hate them, not the ship itself.

I use to ship them but stopped because of the fans. I don't hate it though. I just get annoyed for a little bit then get over it. - BraveCrumb

The nalu fanbase is extremely toxic. I just don't ship them because I want no part in that - vegeta_erza_shisui

They are so adorable together and perfect!
I know the fans ruin it, but come just get over it they're meant for each other!

4 Natsu and Wendy

It's the age gap. Wendy is too little, and Natsu is too old for her. Their relationship is just like brother/sister. Wendy has said to Sherria/Cheria that she loves Natsu like an older brother...


5 Freed and Laxus

I don't like this because I don't like Gruvia


I hate yaoi. - Goku02

6 Natsu and Erza

I don't get why people couldn't ship it because "brother and sister". Isn't all the guild brother and sister too or other family-like bond then so you can't ship anyone in the guild! Oh, and they're not actual brother and sister. I don't like this couple, I mean him being terrified of her and her always beating him up doesn't scream healthy to me. But the "brother-sister" argument I will never understand. - Liinde

They're like elder sister and little brother. No romance at all. - Goku02

They are just like sister and brother Erza obviously love Jellal - akanichan

Erza is too mentally strong for natsu

7 Loke and Lucy

See. This would never work. He will never age or die. Plus the fact that they can't live in each other's world.

He is playboy nothing more nothing less - akanichan

8 Bickslow and Lisanna

This couple never made sense. They didn't even talk to each other. Mostly shipped because of some NaLu fans still threatened by Lisanna's mere existence, so let's force her in a ship that doesn't make any sense, just so she stops getting in the way of Queen Lucy! - Liinde

Honestly, people ship this because they like the feeling of Natsu only belonging to Lucy. This ship fills a Nalu fan's ever so growing belief that NaLu will -coughs- I'm sorry, IS canon. - MirajaneStrauss

I hate this ship so much they are not even talk to each other - akanichan

People only ship this because of Elfman and Evergreen or Mira with Laxus or Freed.

9 Wendy and Romeo

They don't even talk to each other except in a filler (the Ichiya thing), they are a bit young to be forced in a relationship, the only reason they are shipped is because they are the two children of the guild. That's it. - Liinde

They're just kids! - Goku02

Who cares if they are kids? Wendy is 13 by the why. I thought it is cute if kids date each other! - BraveCrumb

They are the greatest couples like the reason I like this is that, because there so cute togeather and there both 11 so... sorry I love them

They're only kids. - SkyDragon27

10 Gray and Erza

Like Natsu he is terrified of her, like does your dream relationship involves you being terrified of your wife who could threaten or beat you up at any time? No thank you. - Liinde

A pretty popular fanon couple. But like in NatZa's case, Gray and Erza are like younger brother and elder sister! No romance at all! Plus, Erza apparently loves Jellal so what's more to say... - Goku02

Someone in the Gray and Juvia non shipping article just said this would be better and have a better chemistry?!? really natsu erza and gray are like siblings I can't ship that...

Would be so damn weird

The Contenders

11 Mirajane and Laxus

They don't have much moments besides Mirajane sad for Laxus after he got beaten up by that demon from Tartarus. They don't really make sense. - Liinde

What is the most badass pairing doing here?

Never shown any affection or had a moment, Horrible ship - DiahAlaydrus

It makes no yet yet I still kinda ship it. Not sure why

12 Cana and Laxus


I don’t really ship this. Cana is extremely weak and laxus is an s class wizard.

13 Wendy and Doranbolt

I like Mest, but no offense he's like, I don't know exactly, 15? Years older than her, that's creepy. - Liinde

This ship scares me. Wendy is a precious, innocent little cinnamon roll and then we have this old dude here who messes everything up later in the show. No! Mest is a pedophile! Also, remember that one scene where Wendy was wearing a swimsuit, he looked at her and he BLUSHED! NO THANKS! And then the other scene where Erza was turned into a little kid and started imaging Jellal saying, "Sorry, I'm not into little girls.". Mest shows up after hearing him talking about liking little girls! Wendy is great and he is like 20 years older than him! NEVER, WENDY RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! - RandomPro0724

It's the age gap again people. - ErzaScarlet

I don't like his face though...And after what he did? The age gap too...Everything goes wrong with this - NicoleBaeB

14 Sting and Lucy

It's the Lucy self inserts that want to have her paired with all the attractive guys. Or because they are both blonde. I'm not sure. But either way, this ship doesn't make any sense, they barely ever interact and when they do, they don't show any possible attraction to each other in any way. - Liinde

I don't understand why this is a thing. I think some of the Fairy Tail fans simply ship Lucy with everyone! Literally almost every character! And this is one of those ships that I just cringe over with. One of the most impacting things that make this 'ship' a super bad thing starts of with Sting laughing and seeming to enjoy the torture Minerva was giving Lucy. Enough said.

I bet it's because they have blonde hair... - BraveCrumb

I don't know why people ship it they have no connection what so ever but they are kind of good for each other!

15 Lyon and Shelia

Lyon is like, 27 years old? And she's 15... That's kinda weird like Mest(Doranbolt) and Wendy. But it's still better than Lyvia, though... - Liinde

Lyon Shelia are amazing characters lyon-juvia and Shelia is my favorite character this ship makes me want to be sick I now want to see the best ships with lyon-juvia

Horrible idea who would ship this

I only ship this because if Lyon gets with Shelia (Or anyone else) He can back up and stop tryna sink the Gruvia ship... - NicoleBaeB

16 Lucy and Igneel

What? First of all, Igneel is a DRAGON! Why are people shipping Lucy with a DRAGON? Second, Lucy has been shipped with almost every fairy tail character, so this is getting really weird. Lastly, Lucy has barely even met Igneel, so how could they even be together? This ship doesn't even make sense!

Why the heck is this even here?

I'm about to cry because I'm getting so frustrated. First it Lucy with Gray, then Lucy with sting, some people are even like Lucy and Lisanna...But like how on earth do you get THIS? why? How? Next its gonna be like Lucy with a rock..Or Lucy with Deliora...OR LUCY WITH HER FATHER! - NicoleBaeB

I'm pretty sure some of the ships you said should exist somewhere... People ship anything with anyone. - Liinde

This is a ship?! - Liinde

17 Mavis and Zeref

I know it's canon, but I never liked it that much. It's pretty toxic and they hate each other for a good portion of the manga. - Liinde

They got married so...

18 Frosch and Rogue

Best friends, no lovers. Frosch is a cat and Rogue an human, how does that even work?! - Liinde

Saw this once, made me puke.

Frosch is a cat in a frog suit Rouge is a emo guy how the hel* is this even a ship

19 Gildarts and Cana

How many ships in this list that are either incest, have major age-gaps, or are just completely wrong in many ways we can't even count? - MirajaneStrauss

I feel like the person who made this list was like ordered to put more ships in so he came up with the most disgusting and irrelevant one's. - NicoleBaeB

Nonexistent and gross. - Tia-Harribel

I prefer proper relationships... gross

20 Ichiya and Erza

I hate this ship but I think it's HILARIOUS - TeresaIsRandom

21 Sting and Yukino

I seriousely don't like it. For me, it's Rogue and Yukino.

I HATE this ship!


22 Happy and Carla
23 Lisanna and Laxus

This, like Lisanna and Bickslow(or whatever you spell his name) and Lisanna x Freed etc, is just shipped by insecure NaLu faps that are too threatened by Lisanna's mere existence, so they have to shove her with random guys with no love on either part. - Liinde

This one should be on the list its just the characters have no connection to each other that there would be never be something between them

24 Erza and Cake

Erza loves cake but why is this even real

I have to admit this is a good joke ship though

25 Mirajane and Makarov


26 Acnalogia and Zeref
27 Rogue and Minerva
28 Natsu and Zeref

YES this is a ship. I just think that it's wrong in every way. Seriously. What has this world come to?

Are you serious? 1, it's incest. 2, Zeref's DEAD.

Zeref is Natsu's brother! This is also just gross. - TeresaIsRandom

This needs to be canon! - RandomPro0724

29 Zeref and Death

This ship actually KIND OF makes sense - TeresaIsRandom

This makes sorta sense and is hilarious!

This needs to be canon

30 Lucy and Laxus

I don't know why people even ship them they never even had a moment together or talked to each other Lucy is literally shipped with everyone and I just hate Lucy


31 Sting and Rogue

Honestly they are like brothers

32 Hibiki and Jenny

Hibki hits on way to many girls end of story.

33 Lucy and Freed

I don't know why but because of how stupid this seems, I kind of ship it lol.

34 Lucy and Gildarts

What the hell...

Love this! - RandomPro0724

35 Laxus and Happy


36 Yukino and Angel

This is incest... - MirajaneStrauss

Love this! - RandomPro0724

37 Wendy and Jellal

To be honest I don't know why this ship is a thing I mean the age gap is SO FRIGGEN NOTICIBLE and also wendy is just a child

38 Gajeel and Lisanna
39 Gray and Natsu

Gratsu needs to be canon - RandomPro0724

40 Max and Broom

Needs to be canon! Wait... It already is! - RandomPro0724

41 Jellal and Erza

It's the ship out of the main 4 that I can tolerate the most, but it is just... I don't know what to say. They started good, then he got manipulated and "abused" her but because he was under manipulation. Then he lives with the guilt and lies to her about having a fiancee because he thinks he doesn't deserve her. That might sound like a tragic bittersweet love story, but it is not. Whenever they met, their dialogues seem so cold. They just talk coldly about the past. The problem is: they haven't moved on from their complicated past. I'm not saying they should, but that way a romance between them wouldn't work. He'd always think how he doesn't deserve her, and she'd always see the Jellal that "abused" her despite being under manipulation. I don't think they should become a couple at all. - Liinde

I hate it with all my might! Not a single man is perfect to Erza in this series, - ErzaYuri

Both of them are cool, awesome and powerful and their story is tragic, heartbreaking and great! - Goku02

So much is wrong with this pairing, especially after poor Simon's fate. Should've swapped Jellal with Simon and then things would have been a little better, as Jellal only grinded Erza's character development to a halt with still being alive after his villain role was resolved with a crap retcon.

42 Natsu and Lisanna

Sometimes the "shippers" make it worse for the couple. Natsu and Lisanna is no more, they haven't even interacted anymore after Lisanna came back from Edolas. They're only close when they were kids, Natsu is even closer to Lucy now and Lisanna doesn't even mind if it's going to be her with Natsu or Lucy with Natsu... So stop the "shipping" stuff and just let Hiro Mashima decide... It's okay to ship characters, but don't make it a fight...

I hate this ship - ThatEmoLoner

Lasagna deserves to be dead.

This was in the past.

43 Gray and Lucy

This is actually kinda cute... It's not as bad as Gray and Juvia to be honest. - MirajaneStrauss

Not as bad as GrayxJuvia, it has appeal.

I hate this ship so much. I it should die. HATE IT!

Always love it.

44 Gajeel and Levy

I don't really like GaLe because I feel like it downgrades both their characters. Gajeel was an interesting character with interesting dynamics with others in the guild, him turning into "Levy's knight in armor" annoyed me so much because he was a good character reduced to ship bait who isn't even allowed to have interactions with other characters anymore. As for Levy, she was pretty interesting too at first and also had a nice personality, but ever since she fell in love with Gajeel she turned into an annoying Tsundere (which I despise with a burning passion) love interest and an useless damsel in distress. She was never strong, but she didn't get into much trouble before meeting Gajeel, these moments happen just to have a "romantic" boy saves girl moment.

Basically, GaLe took two good, interesting characters and turned them into nothing more than ship bait, erasing all their depth, the good things about them and whatever made them interesting before. - Liinde

The sweet thing about this is that Levy forgave Gajeel. And after that Gajeel tried so hard to be a better person. GaLe is Life!

I kind of agree with Crucifixion because I mean, look when they first encountered each other, and now their just like shipped all the time with people in love with the ship. Smh.

Crucifixion... Enough said...

45 Panther Lily and Carla

I never liked this couple. I ship them as brother and sister, but not as a couple. They never showed any romantic relationship. Plus, Pantherlily is much older then Carla. They have a huge age gap. Carla was born when Wendy was little, while Pantherlily was shown as an adult when Mystogan was still a child.

Happy and Carla, on the other paw, have a lot of romantic moments which is why I ship them instead.

46 Eve and Wendy

This ship was fine before the time skip, but now there's too much of an age difference. Even though it was cute at first, It's a little too creepy...

Why do people ship this? It would have been OK before the time skip but now...


47 Miliana and Sting

Why...just...WHY. I know that she found lector and all but...just not meant to be

48 Juvia and Natsu

I hate how this is like a yin yang stereotype thing and how juvia uses water magic and natsu is a fire dragon slayer but this just cannot be. I mean, to start off they never had much alone time or a time to really get to know each other. Besides, juvia is in love with gray and now one else. I cannot even recall and conversation between the two of them. Enough said.

49 Leo and Aries
50 Jellal and Sorano
