Top Ten Worst Fictional Canon Couples

Mariosprincessesfan
Canon is when it is what the author actually wrote (as in not fan-made/what actually happened). So what is the worst couple you believe was made real?

The Top Ten

1 Sasuke & Sakura (Naruto) Sasuke & Sakura (Naruto)

This was always one sided and in a very awkward way. They never had anything in common. Even after Sasuke went rogue, Sakura was still irrationally infatuated with him. Sakura also never fully appreciated what a great guy Naruto was and all of the sacrifices he made on her behalf. (Not that I support NaruSaku, because I very much don't) I have so many problems with the fact that this became canon. It's almost like Sakura's weird stalking was finally rewarded.

He abandoned her and their daughter, rejects and refuse to kiss her, also tried to kill her a lot of times. He promised that would go back to marry her but never returned, so sakura chased him, got pregnant, and gave birth in the enemy hideout cause she didn't want to stay away from him.

Never showed any interest in her besides getting to tolerate her more/see her as a friend, and they tried to kill each other. All this time as Sakura crushed on him it stopped her from fully growing up in my opinion, and Sakura would've been fine with Lee. - Mariosprincessesfan

Yes this even worse than Twilight

2 Edward & Bella (Twilight series) Edward & Bella (Twilight series)

How the hell is this only #9? For crap's sake, "Still a better love story than Twilight" is a common phase now! The worst romance ever, which sets a terrible standard for all readers, glorifies abuse and provides absolutely no real connection between the inanimate twits that pass for characters. No one should be voting for anything from Harry Potter or Avatar as being worse than Bella and Edward unless they've never read Twilight.

The most stupid canon ever

Edward and Bella is lower than Harry and Ginny?

Come on people. I don't even LIKE twighlight and even I know that this couple SUCKS. Edward just stalks the girl and she doesn't do ANYTHING to help the relationship at all.

3 Harry & Ginny (Harry Potter Series) Harry & Ginny (Harry Potter Series)

Harry just randomly started liking her and fantasizing about her and they didn't really show how it would be a good relationship. - Mariosprincessesfan

I never liked this. Ginny would be better with Luna or Neville. Maybe even Dean. I've never seen anyone I thought Harry should fall in live with. Moaning Myrtle? I really have no idea. - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

There are reasons why it's hard to like them as a canon couple, right?

Admit it, JKR is amazing at writing novels but not so much on romance.It literally came out of nowhere, Ginny was shy girl to Mary Sue, and it isn’t even romantic AT ALL.Ginny should go with Neville...Harry would take a while.Here are my ships(not too good either, I’m not spot-on expert):
-Harry and Hermione
-Ginny and Neville
-Draco and Luna(BENG ROGUE AND EVIL HERE)
-Ron and...?
-Scorpius and Rose
Sorry Hinny shippers...I just don’t feel hot romance between the two.

4 Aang & Katara (The Last Airbender) Aang & Katara (The Last Airbender)

The last kiss, or should I say make out, was rushed. I mean she was confused last time they kissed and it was so obvious it kinda became annoying. I wished they added little moments here and there than it being an overload of a 12 year old and 14 year old in a WAR having a confusing romance. Damn, that was a long rant.

This was a little awkward just because Katara was older and taller, but that's about it. Otherwise it was fine. After all, the little guy should win sometimes, right? Besides, there were other canon ships in Avatar that were truly awful! For example, why is this #6 and Korrasami didn't even make the list? But at least Zuko/Mai and Korra/Mako made it to the list.

This is just such a weird pairing. I don't know why Aang likes Katara, she seems very unlikable. - ClicheUsername69

People who like kataang are the kind of people who wanted Brexit

5 Mako & Korra (Legend of Korra S1) Mako & Korra (Legend of Korra S1)

Since LoK was supposed to be 1 season I'm counting this, and it was canon at one point so...

Anyways, they started out consistently fighting, not saying much to each other. Than SUDDENLY Mako goes ape over Korra when she was kidnapped when he was PERFECTLY calm when HIS ONLY BROTHER gets kidnapped. Afterwords they're all lovey-dovey. - Mariosprincessesfan

Mako is an idiot, he doesn't deserve either Korra or Asami - TwilightKitsune

All they did was argue :/

I think they were even worse in Season 2.

6 Ichigo & Orihime (Bleach) Ichigo & Orihime (Bleach)

I dunno, I just don't see the relationship properly developed at all. They have their moments, but it was always butchered by something else (mostly, by Ichigo who usually looks at something more important). Guess I'm not used to the Hero's significant other not being so significant after all.

Be mad charlie

Ship of hoes

inbreeding

7 Craig & Tweek (South Park)

No, no and no. Tweek and Craig were out of characters in Tweek x Craig. Also, Put it Down has seriously exaggerated their relationship, which make them cliche. Stan and Wendy never acted like that when they were together, and honestly, that wasn't that bad, because that would also be a cliche couple if they were like that.

I just don't see any potential in this ship. It's just two boys forced to be together by these annoying draws. Plus, even if we have to collect them in the game, I even saw in a video Craig can be charmed by a raisin girl... So he is NOT gay!

Creek is hate, Creek is dead. Hate and dead also fit to the show really well, and not just due to Creek.

Tweek x Craig: Forced couple.
Put it Down: Cliche couple.
South Park: The Fractured but Whole: Stereotypical couple! (Watched a video on youtube. And of course, Mackey became PC here.)

I really hate HOW Trey and Matt keep insisting on this couple. They still don't get it there is TOO-MANY-PEOPLES who hate this couple! They keep making this couple worse if they abuse it!

8 Ash & Serena (Pokemon the Series x Y) Ash & Serena (Pokemon the Series x Y)

Kill Serena with fire! - FrozenHatingPokefan

That image is more than enough to make me hate both of them. On the bright side, at least the image is when Serena didn't have her stupid haircut. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Yeah I chose that picture because of what it represents. It shows Serena's arrogance and Ash's inability to understand the female gender lol. - RoseRedFlower

It's only half canon on Serena's side

KILL IT! KILL IT WITH FIRE!

9 Zuko & Mai (The Last Airbender) Zuko & Mai (The Last Airbender)

They got together so randomly. Ya so what when Zuko or Mai was like FIVE YEARS OLD he/she crushed on him/her. That was when they where kids.

Not only that, they fought consistently and didn't see each others side. It's no wonder they broke up constantly. - Mariosprincessesfan

I find their relationship toxic like crud. ick! - wariolady

Mai came out 8f nowhere in order to be Zuko's love interest.Meh!

Most items on this list(this one is a perfect example) don't deserve to be on the list

10 Ana & Christian (Fifty Shades of Grey)

I think this couple should be higher just because of the abuse! There is nothing sexy about this. The Dom on "Lost in Adaptation" perfectly stated why these two are horrible together and I agree %110. At least with Edward and Bella they were on common ground (sorta).

"as bad as twilight bet the book is just as 'good'" Funny you should say that- the book started out as a "Twilight" fanfic. The author later deleted it, changed the characters' names, and somehow got legit published and a movie deal.

I hate this movie & I hate Ana & Christian as characters. She's so stupid & a huge desperate slut. She just let this guy use her for the majority of the show, then throws a huge fit & finally completely leaves him when he finally does what she wanted him to do! Dumb, whinny, & so boring! Christian is so delusional seeing something 'special' in her. She's just a desperate boring girl. And mr. Gary Stu is no better. He's rich & has girls drooling all over him! And besides he's into BDSM there is nothing interesting about him. He is bland and has no personality besides maybe hotheaded. He's 'mr. Mysterious' like that hasn't been done before. Awful movie, as bad as twilight bet the book is just as 'good'

The Newcomers

? Cosette and Marius (Les Misérables)

I'm not saying Cosette and Marius are bad characters: they are amazing! However, if you have watched the musical, you know that they bump into each other and instantly fall in love at first sight just like that. Then they meet again at her (more of Valijean's) place a while later and confess their love and plan to marry soon afterwards. How long does this take? I believe it's only a few days or weeks or months. Either way, this couple lacks chemistry. Marius was better off with Eponine. (This is in the musical/movie, not the novel.) - listotaku17

The Contenders

11 Oliver & Felicity (Arrow)
12 Kazuma and Ayano (Kaze no Stigma) Kazuma and Ayano (Kaze no Stigma)

Agh Ayano for the MAJORITY of the anime complains about him, whines, is useless, and just complains. Why would Kazuma want to be with her? Later on they just forced the idea that 'they r perfect 4 each other! 1! ' for no reason, when Kazuma showed little to no interest in her and Ayano was just a whinny brat around him. - Mariosprincessesfan

13 Remus Lupin & Nymphadora Tonks Remus Lupin & Nymphadora Tonks

Out of nowhere, no real point to it (no, there was no real reason for them to have a baby either since the offspring didn't DO anything and the "Harry's godson" factor wasn't played up that much), what had been an awesome strong female was reduced to a weepy schoolgirl with a sudden insatiable crush, and clearly the other half's heart wasn't in it.

I kind of hoped that with the new book/play that this relationship would now have some valid reason for happening, that the kid everyone loves and defends so much actually had a significant purpose besides Harry claiming he'd be so much a better godfather than his own. Nope, had just as much purpose in "Cursed Child" as in the series proper i.e. none whatsoever. Tell me again why I should love this pairing and that baby.

It was just like:
Look, a new character! Let's shipp it! Wait... But with who? I got an idea! Let's put the names of the single characters in pieces of paper and then what is it she will be with. ~pick piece of paper~. Remus Lupin. Okay then...

14 Finn & Flame Princess (Adventure Time) Finn & Flame Princess (Adventure Time)

They where awful when they where dating and only got together at love at first sight. Lame. All Finn did is lust over her while he rarely cared about her feelings. Not surprising she broke up with him. - Mariosprincessesfan

Yes, I dislike that couple. Their fans are bunch of idiots. - 05yusuf09

15 Goku & Chi Chi (Dragon Ball Z) Goku & Chi Chi (Dragon Ball Z)

How did she even get pregnant with Gohan let alone Goten?

Goku didn't even understand what he was saying when he agreed to marry her. They don't seem to see eye to eye on anything, and Goku seems to mostly anger chi chi than he ever gave her joy. Their relationship... just saddens me when I see them together. I mean, chi chi was at one point so upset at Goku, she didn't give a f that he was in a horrible state that he could die. Even if it is for 'comedy' I don't see how they are a 'happily married' couple... At all.

16 Knuckles & Rouge (Sonic) Knuckles & Rouge (Sonic)

They're just rivals and nothing more. Yet dumb fans think that Rouge's "crush" on Knuckles makes them automatically a married couple when they're not. She is just flirty and wants the Master Emerald.

Do we even have to bring up Sonic shippings? Wait, are they even fictional canon? You know what, I'm just gonna stop since this might lead to me sounding like a rabid Sonic fan who tries to look for what's canon and not canon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Everyone knows Rouge belongs with Shadow.

Knuxouge sucks... - TwilightKitsune

17 Inuyasha & Kikyo (Inuyasha) Inuyasha & Kikyo (Inuyasha)

Kikyo, the woman responsible for sealing InuYasha to a tree, still stalks and wants to be with him... what kind of logic is that? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

They did not trust each other at all.
And Kikyo wants to drag Inuyasha to the hell.
Great couple indeed.

Like inuyasha is all innocent? He stole the sacred jewel that kikyo was responsible for for himself. Why would kikyo let him get away? Inuyasha still wanted to be with her to, even when she sealed him to a tree (and was dead). They felt betrayed since kikyo thought inuyasha attacked her (wounds in which caused her death) & told her that he was never interested in her & was just tricking her. There was no way both kikyo & inuyasha could've known they where tricked besides the bs 'powerz of love! 1! 1! 1! 11! ' and once both found out it was all naraku & origomo doing, they both instantly forgave each other.

She doesn't even stalk him. Most the time she is doing her own thing & collecting the jewel shards on her own when the group bumps into her.

And it's not really better than inukag, since kagome is supposed to be a replacement for kagome. & stringing along 3 guys at once, forcing inuyasha to have no other feelings for other girls while she plays around with other guys, ...more

/sigh
This is only hated because of whinny inukag fans. Kikyo treated inuyasha with more respect than bitchome can ever comprehend.

Naraku got them both killed because origomo wanted them sepperated because he wanted kikyo & naraku wanted the shicon Jewel. Both where really hurt that they did that to each other. Of course they didn't do that to each other. But they had no way of knowing till 50 years later. That does not mean they did not trust each other though. If they didn't, l
Kikyo wouldn't have agreed to use the shard to change inuyasha into a human & inuyasha wouldn't agree to it to do it for her. Nor would he go to HELL for her.

The whinny bratty is the one that didn't trust inuyasha or puts his feelings of consideration of him at all. Inuyasha wanted to go to hell with her. Go & cry about that, inukag fans. Kagome was a controlling shellfish that she threw a fit because inuyasha still loved her even though he wasn't dating kagome. And her having to say ...more

18 Zane & P.I.X.A.L. (Ninjago)

Two robots in a codependent, Twilightesque romance. Lovely. It's so bad it's almost funny. Almost. Thanks for neutering my favorite Ninjago character, Lego. /sarcasm - eventer51314

19 Severus Snape & Lily Evans (Potter) Severus Snape & Lily Evans (Potter)

"He loved her his entire, sad, lonely life! " Which isn't cute, sweet, or romantic-- it's creepy! And no they did not "truly care about each other", he was willing to let both James AND Harry die so she'd be "available" again and only "died protecting her son" out of sudden years too late remorse. Not to mention he made a "sad, lonely life" out of obsessing over her instead of may be doing something else with that life. So no, those who don't think this is such a cute, great, wonderful couple aren't "MONSTERS".

Everyone acts like Snape's love for Lily suddenly made him a good guy. Wrong! It only proved that he still had a creepy obsession over a dead chick.

I like Snape but his romance with Lily is disgusting. He was very hateful towards Lily. If you're wondering why she chose James and not Snape...James apologized and through character development went from a bratty teenager to the love of Lily's life who actually cares for her - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

I just want to destroy every bit of merchandise showing a doe or Snape himself emblazoned with "Always".

20 Bruce Banner and Natasha Romanoff (Marvel's The Avengers) Bruce Banner and Natasha Romanoff (Marvel's The Avengers)

No chemistry whatsoever between the two. They were an unneeded pairing in AoU and romance could be written out easily.

I think I'm the only one who didn't mind this couple. - Tia-Harribel

So cringeworthy
