Worst My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Shippings

This list about all hated MLP couples due to uncanon. Just Mare X Stallion Pairings. So no Mare X Mare or Stallion X Stallion couples. Also no Couples such as Dusk Shine X Twilight Sparkle (that would be dating yourself).

The Top Ten

1 Rainbow Dash X Soarin

To the comment asking "Why is this even on here? ": I don't know where you got your info from. AppleDash has consistently been the top popular shipping since people started shipping characters in this show. You won't believe me, but that just proves your ignorance and/or lack of credible sources.

I like it because the both share the same interests dreams and personality. Not my number one, but still a good ship.

It is overrated...But I just think that Rainbow Dash saved Soarin so many times now. And has Spitfire dine anything OH LAST TINE I CHECKED SHE JUST SCREWED HIM OVER

WHY is this even on here? Rainbow Dash and Soarin are the top rated couple. Well the last time I checked it was AM I WRONG OH NO BETTER CHECK AGAIN.

2 Rarity x Sweetie Belle

What?!? People ship this!?!? They're SISTERS!

Why their sister you creeps

They are SISTERS for celestia's sake! Who the bucking HAY composed this!

This is so creepy. Kill this ship and let it burn in hell. This is just bad

3 Pokey Pierce X Pinkie Pie

Pokey Pierce does NOT go with Pinkie Pie. He is just a background pony that showed up at a party. Plus, Pokey pops balloons. And if you know Pinkie Pie, she would NOT like that at all! Cheese is a better match in my opinion.

They never talked to each other, he just popped a balloon at a party and I don't Pinkie would go out with someone who may destroy her balloons.

Yup. Never talked, was barely even a major part, just stupid. It isn't even one of those opposite attract, It's just a jerk with an overly silly pony. It will never work.

Yeah, you're right. They never interacted, so, why is this even a shipping?

4 Discord x Celestia

Okay, let me tell you something.. FLUTTERCORD IS A BAD SHIP! Discord looks old doesn't he? I mean if I'm the only person thinking that, then you guys are weird! Fluttershy is such a Dear! Why would people ship her that kind of Maniacal, kind of Animal THING? People shipping her with Discord because he has animals mixed with him. SO WHAT IF.

I do really love this ship and HATE FlutterCord. Discord only got jealous of Fluttershy because he never had a REAL friend before, and it made him think he didn't have a friend anymore. He would've done the same if his really close friend became Twilight, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, or Rarity. I just don't get FlutterCord at all and can't see why others like it so much.

FlutterCord is so much better than this old piece of #2! What did Discord and Celestia do together that makes them a ship?! Discord told Fluttershy that she’s worth more than all the magic in Equestria, and what did he do to Celestia? He just gave her flowers for 2 seconds. Seriously, Celestia is better off being shipped with her own sister!

No one ships this enough than it should be shipped

5 Rarity X Prince Blueblood

Prince blueblood only thinks of himself and doesn't care about Rarity at all! - MLPFan

Blue blood treated Rarity like a peasant and expected her to treat him like a prince. I don't think Rarity would be giving Blueblood any second chances any time soon, and it doesn't really look like he would want one either,

Blueblood treated Rarity like dirt the entire time at the Gala. Just...Why THIS?!

Yes, agree completely. Though Rarity does not really match up with anyone, her best match is fancy pants I think, because he was kind to her, and defended her more "uncivilized" as some may call it ponyville friends.

6 Rainbow Dash x Fluttershy

As much as I like both RD & Fluttershy, this wouldn't work in a million years. The only ship with RD in it that I like is Pinkie x Dashie. - RoseWeasley

Why do so many bronies think Dash is lesbian? She's just a tomboy! And Fluttershy? She is super girly! Why the heck is this does anyone ship these two?

I love this ship so much. It's too canon to even bee here.

There isn't any evidence that either of them are lesbian. Show me some evidence and then I'll take it a little more seriously.

7 Apple Bloom x Applejack

They are sisters! And applebloom is a child! So its incest and pedophilia! my god what goes throught these peoples heads!?


8 Comet Tail X Twilight Sparkle

Ugh. Too overdone. Also, looks don't say everything. She could have been with a billion other ponies that loves astronomy.

Same Thing with Pokey x Pinkie.

Its just so bland

This couple is just uncanon and not creative at all on my opinion. Just because Comet Tail's design is similar to Shining Armor's and Twilight is an Alicorn like Princess Cadence? - MLPFan

9 Pinkie Pie x Limestone Pie

Grosser than gross. Why do so many of these ships involve incest?

Is that even a ship?

10 Spike X Sweetie Belle

This is on the list and Button Mash x Sweetie Belle isn't. What is wrong with you people?! Two characters that make sense because one is everything the other wants but would actually make more sense to be interested in them? Screw that, put it on the worst list! Two characters that never interact outside of fan content but appeared on the same screen for a second and a half so they're totally into each other? ALL OF THE SHIPPING! Seriously people, this is why LyraBon was stupid initially. I am disgusted with the brony community these days.

This ship isn't the worst and I kinda like it, but I ship Spike with Rarity and Sweetie Belle with Button

I don't hate it but Sparity makes more sense

This ship is terrible. Firstly, Sweetie Belle being a silver medal to Spike is just so wrong and depressing. The interpretation of how this ship would go out in most people’s eyes is just laughable to me. Like, why would he just randomly settle for Rarity’s sister if the said one does not accept his feelings for her? It also hurts in Sweetie Belle’s part because if this became a thing, she would just downgrade to a “last resort” kind of thing for Spike. I’m sorry for those who think this ship is a masterpiece but I just don’t see it happening at all. I’m no fan of Sparity but at least his crush on Rarity is somewhat adorable; but having Sweetie belle randomly being paired with Spike is unacceptable in my opinion.

The Contenders

11 Maud Pie x Marble Pie
12 Soarin X Spitfire

He should really be with Dash. She's saved him so many times now, and Spitfire kinda screwed him over in Rainbow Falls.

I ship rainbow dash and Soarin mostly, but I guess this ship would work better than some others on this list.

It is a reasonable couple, but to me spitfire seems too mature for soarin and Id rather see him with Rainbow Dash.

But I like this couple:(

13 Fluttershy x Discord

Fluttercord is literally the worst idea I've ever heard in my entire recorded life. Like, what the heck!? Discord is, like, a MILLION years old, and Fluttershy is a YOUNG ADULT! Discord and Fluttershy's friendship is NOT that kind of friendship! It's like shipping Wreck-It Ralph with Vanellope Von Schweetz, or the BFG with Sophie! They're friends, but they're not the kind of friends who can have crushes on each other, because it just doesn't work like that! Seriously, I just cannot understand how Fluttercord is the #1 Fluttershy ship of the fandom, because it is warped, and twisted, and just utterly mad! - PurpleWonderPower

Now I do not hate this ship, but I am a true Dislestia. One of the reasons I don't like this ship is because to me its not logical. Discord is thousands of years old and Fluttershy is what, 20 maybe? Not to mention if Discord can live forever what is going to happen to Fluttershy and all of their kids? Will Discord just slowly watch them all die out? If you ask me that sounds horrible. I get why people say that Fluttershy likes animals and Discord is a bunch of different ones, but besides that I don't see this working out too well. Wow I'm surprised you read all of this. Rant over.

There are very few reasons they are actually paired together mostly because people believe the false idea that opposites attract for relationships which psychology has shown that opposites only last for short term relationships and tend to be very toxic to both. Discord is also highly manipulative and controlling of Fluttershy which would lead to it being a further toxic relationship and based on Fluttershy being able to stand up for herself now she would break it off (let's face it there is NO way Discord would change, it would change his entire character). There of course is the idea of age which, a being that may be older than Celestia with a basically teenage pony, yeah that's super creepy, he even chooses to look old and his EG equivalent should probably look like he's at least 60 with a lot of gray in his hair; imagine a 60 year old with a teenager.

Besides this the only reason I've ever heard why people like Discord is because of the voice actor who plays him. Frankly ...more

It's so overrated and boring as hell. I don't understand why people love it and the fan service in the show is way too much.

14 Flash Sentry X Twilight Sparkle

Flash Sentry and Twilight Sparkle is forced so hard that it makes me hate it. It's absolutely terrible, and makes no sense as a ship.

For one, Flash (the one she actually spends time with, from here on in called Brad) is a HUMAN BEING, a completely different species from Twilight. She may be human on one side of the mirror, but Brad is a human, and doesn't have the same experiences as a pony, it would be different if he were from Equestria as well.

Brad also has absolutely no character, and is nothing more than a cardboard cutout "cool guy". All we know about him is that he dated Sunset, and he plays guitar. That's literally it.

Absolutely not
Flash Sentry is the worst he deserves to die alone - Zombieworldcomix

I'm indifferent. I don't like flash's character, but the show is hinting at their relationship. Maybe since the ship was not created by viewers, but is a real thing is why people dislike it.

I really hope there's no more development for this pairing. Glad that it's only a pairing in the sin-off movies and not in the show itself.

15 Shining Armor x Twilight Sparkle

Brother x sister ships are really bad

Why isn't this any higher? This "ship", if I can even call it that is disgusting.

They are siblings you sickos! - lavashooter

Ugh! This ship disgusts me! Thank god it's on here!

16 Rarity X Fancy Pants

To me I do like and do not think fancy is so old, some people develop more hair and faster than others so maybe mustache left to look more sophisticated and refined, besides her voice seems someone with almost or more half a century old, I think it is rather close to the 30 years of age, 28 or so and Rarity has as 21-22. I do not understand why everyone says they are married, if they say Fleur, she does not appear on stage or 3 minutes total in the whole chapter. Besides that unlike others Canterlot ponies, Rarity not judged or his friends for being Ponyvilley, until defended and praised. Those two have a future.

DISGUSTING. Fancy Pants is too old has a mare friend/ probably even married for all I care. Rarity needs to find someone fresher.

This couple is really disgusting! It have a dead potentian, stupid and pathetic cliches, plus makes absolutely zero sense! Plus, the guy with the mustache is already married and too old for Rarity! Taking into account the status, it at least 50 (40 minimum)! Rarity maximum of 22! Rarity can find someone younger and more interesting than the old fart in the money! LOL!

Here is where I have to object. I do enjoy this couple. Though there is an age diff, what about spike and rarity? That is an even bigger gap. Also, they seem to enjoy each others company, and Fancy Pants stood up for her friends, saying they were charmingly rustic. Their interests suit eachother too. I really don't see the problem here.

17 Doctor Whooves X Twilight Sparkle

Flutter cord is awesome! But back to the topic, yes I agree. Their couple is shown in light in slice of life in which the doctor helps Derpy, and Derpy says he looks handsome. Besides, twilight is into magic, while he likes science. And like they just don't have the looks for a good couple either. -Sophie

Agree completely. Ditzy and the doctor just have this cute couple charicteristic that twilight and the doctor don't. But that's my opinion. It is like my all time favorite ship, flutter cord. I hate the idea of fluttershy and Big Mac, or celestial and discord.

The WORST! He should be shipped with derpy

Meh, Doctor Whooves is better with Ditzy Doo and Twilight Sparkle is better with Flash Sentry - MLPFan

18 Rarity x Trenderhoof

I hate trenderhoof period, so any ship with him is annoying in my opinion. Though its not as bad as rarity x sweetie belle...

I ship Trenderhoof with Applejack HATERS GONNA HATE

I hate trenderhoof

TrenderJack is a better ship.

19 Diamond Tiara x Blueblood

So, basically, this ship says that Prince Blueblood is a pedo? I mean, come on; Diamond Tiara is around nine or ten, and Blueblood is in his twenties - at least!


Wait what no

I NEVER EVER thought about this but..
If Diamond Tiara was older it would be perfect - msdot14

20 Pinkie Pie x Maud Pie

WHAT that's just wrong to ship them! What's wrong with people these days?!

21 Pinkie Pie x Marble Pie
22 Shining Armour x Queen Chrysalis

Yes, since does when does brainwashing=love?

I agree completely

Since when did cheating exist in Equestria?

Uh...Just, WHY?

23 Babs Seed x Apple Bloom

They're COUSINS.

24 Applejack x Rarity

I have no problems with it, though I personally can't see any of the mane 6 as anything more than best buddies

This is my favorite lesbian ship, but it is hard for me to see the mane six as more than friends.

This ship is the best and I love it so much. It shouldn't even be mentioned here.

I loathe this ship

25 Granny Smith x Applejack

You know, some days I wouldn't touch Thetoptens with a 38 foot pole, but yet, here I am, witnessing my little pony ships while typing sentences with too many commas.

Are you guys crazy? You are telling me that you hate a straight couple the most (rainbowdash-soarin) and not this?

Why is this 37th one, its gross I mean come on dude!

Burn it with the fire.

26 Fluttershy X Big Macintosh

I can understand a little, why people shop this, but that doesn't mean I agree with it! Flutters and Big Mac just don't fit! Sure they might have a similar personality in reference to their shyness! But that's what's bad about it! They would literally have nothing to talk about there so shy it would be awkward and they wouldn't talk! Big Mac needs someone outgoing like cheerilee! And flutters needs someone outgoing to (coughs) discord.

Just because they are both shy doesn't mean they should be a couple

No it doesn't work marble pie x big Macintosh works better

Oh my gosh I hate this ship! The two of them haven't even spoken in the whole show! I'm glad that this is on here. I personally rather Fluttercord. I'm sorry, but it's just my opinion.

27 Applejack x Rainbow Dash

It's too overrated. All Rainbow and Applejack do is compete against eachother and fight. If they got in a relationship, their competing and fighting would only get WORSE.

This ship can burn

I think they are better as friends, is way more cuter

I love Appledash, but I'm seeing comments saying people like me insult all the other pairings, but, actually I love all the dash pairings and it was more down to a "I don't have any one else to ship Applejack with" when I made this the canon ship in my nextgen. - Warriorcatsfandom

28 Discord X Pinkie Pie

Again I can only see Fluttershy with discord. Not fluttershy with Big Mac, not discord with celestia or anyone else, not pinkie with discord, but I do enjoy cheese sand which and pinkie, much more realistic.

Most of the time, when they're seen together she is mad or upset with him and Flutters is the only one who gives him a chance

I mean, its cute and I don't have a problem with it, but I ship Discord with Fluttershy and Pinkie with Cheese

Doesn't look like a great idea - MLPFan

29 Rainbow Dash X Thunderlane

No, they haven't even spoken. This makes no sense.

...Eh? (There's also FlutterLane, which I also don't get)

HUH?! I don't know about this one. Isn't Rainbow with that Wonderbolt guy?

Aww I like this, imagine their babies! - PinkieDashLuver

30 Discord X Twilight Sparkle

I personally wouldn't mind it, but I'd need to see more interaction between them in the show - PoopyPants

That doesn't even make any since, twilight hates discord.

What kind of drug that had consumed the invention that?

I do kinda like this ship thanks to Glass Of Water

31 Cheese Sandwich X Pinkie Pie

People are saying "how can you not ship them they're so similar" but that's exactly why I don't ship them... at all. I just can't see it. I hate this ship with a burning passion and I hope it dies in a fiery abyss.

Sure, let's pair Pinkie with a character designed to appear in exactly one episode and then never be seen again. That worked great with Rarity and Prince Blueballs!

THESES TWO ARE SO SIMPLE! Cheese:Parties. Pinkie:Parties. HUH! We have a similarity that some people are to blind to notice! - sdgeek2003

And below this comment t there shall be four nimrods with no concept of good taste.

32 Twilight Sparkle x Rainbow Dash

I hate this shipping with a burning passion

This ship can burn in hell for all I care

Overrated. And it makes no sense. Ugh... - Zukram97


33 Octavia X Fluttershy

This is an actual couple? - Pony

I've never even heard of this ship until now. Who came up with this?

This is a thing?


34 Pipsqueak x Sweetie Bell

So, this is on here but not Button Mash x Sweetie Belle? Double standards much?

Button mash x Sweetie belle would be better

It's not because they're 'too young' but it's because it's plain uncanon. I prefer Button Mash X Sweetie Bell. - MLPFan

Meh. I prefer button with sweetie and pip with Apple bloom

35 BonBon x Sombra

Wha..? This ship is so random! - PoopyPants

Uh...This ship EXISTS?

Isn't Lyrabon cannon?

Who's BonBon?

36 Luna x Big Mac

I don't really have a huge problem with this (or any) ship, but it just seems like a crack-ship on so many levels.The two have never spoken to each other, and (in my opinion) their personalities don't really go together in a romantic pairing. In all cases I have seen it, it just seems as if their love is a little forced. I can see this ship work in a platonic way really well (They both can feel ignored by others, they both are pretty chill, etc.), but as a romantic/sexual relationship? It doesn't make much sense to me.

I think luna is too old for big mac and they never really talked so...

I like it in the comics... But that's it


37 Applejack x Big Mac

Ewww they're siblings! People shouldn't ship them but some people do.. *barfs* - PoopyPants

38 Apple Bloom x Big Mac

Even worse than AJ and Mac.. *shudders* - PoopyPants

39 Marble Pie x Limestone Pie

They're SISTERS.

40 Diamond Tiara X Applebloom

I adore this shipping

This ship is adorable

:0 WHY?

If it wasn't for DiamondSpoon, this would be my first favorite DT shipping

41 Trixie x Snips

While I enjoy ships involving Trixie, pairing her with her loony fan sounds rather creepy. She is also an adult, while he is still a child.

Fanboy love lol


Don't get me wrong, I like both of them, but WHY IS THIS SHIPPED? I mean, I know Snips has a crush on her, but the age difference makes this a little weird.
I prefer Trixie x Starlight Glimmer, and I haven't decided on who to ship Snips with.

42 Rainbow Dash x Applejack

This was already on the list... - gizzmokids

I feel like that would end in domestic abuse.

Kill it with fire

Hate this ship

43 Big Mac x Cheerilee

Yeah, Big Macintosh and Cheerilee never REALLY liked eachother. It was because of a SPELL, of which NEITHER of them AGREED upon. And remember that one scene when Big Mac got friendzoned by Cheerilee?

44 Princess Cadence x Shining Armor

Why...They're married, and who else would you ship with Shining OR Cadance?!

They're so cute together!

I love this ship.
Their married


45 Pipsqueak x Applebloom

Ask the crusaders agrees

It's my favorite Apple Bloom ship

Cutest ship ever

SweetiePip is actually more canon than this for reasons?

46 Discord X Treehugger

Why would anyone ever do this?

Does this even exist? I've been seeing couples that I've never even heard of.

They're hardly even friends. How could they end up as a couple?

( vomit noises )

47 Applejack x Caramel

Unless someone can actually write a non-cliche story over this, this remains one of the most hated couples. Typical, clumsy guy. I prefer seeing Caramel with Sassaflash.

I like this ship, but I also like Caramel with Sassaflash too.

I love this ship...Probably because Applejack doesn't have many stallions to love other than Caramel, Trenderhoof, and Flim. There might be others but I don't know

I do ship Applejack with Caramel, but Caramel with Sassaflash is, like, wut? 'Cause in that one episode they were nose muzzling, and then in Magical Mystery Cure, They looked ticked at eachother, whichever comes first. I do like both though.

48 Rainbow Dash x Flash Sentry

No not really


I have no idea what to think about this pair... It just came to me😐

49 Shining Armor x Luna

I hate it when Shining Armor or Cadence is paired with someone other than each other, Chrysalis being an exception because she was literally disguised as his fiance, they're married for ponys sake

! shining married cadence!

Shining is married to Cadance already, and their love is too strong for divorce.

50 Twilight x Trenderhoof

Someone explain to me why ships are so screwed up now?

What has become of society these days?

They really never met!

What the heck?
