Worst Naruto Ships

Naruto is one of the most popular, and influential anime in America. Shipping (a romanticized couple) is one of the most popular things in the fandom. While some ships are great other will make you want to bathe in the nearest bottle of bleach, and here they are.

The Top Ten

1 Naruto x Sasuke

So, I probably triggered a lot of fangirls when I added this, but the ship makes no sense, so it belongs here no matter what people say. - XxembermasterxX

It is cringey. I don't think they actually have that kind of love for each other.

In my opinion your insane.. I would be ok with this but its number one WHAT!?!?!

WHAT?! I ship them so hard! This is scandalous!

You do know you didn't have to vote for them right? Just vote on another item then express your opinion on them. - XxembermasterxX

2 Naruto x Itachi

? This is ridiculous!

This makes literally no sense.

Do fangirls ship them just because they where in ONE scene? - XxembermasterxX

3 Naruto x Sakura

She's way too abusive. In fact, any relationship she has, may it be platonic, romantic or anything else with anyone is toxic because of her. Sakura with Sasuke, Ino and Naruto are the worst offenders. After everything Naruto's done for her, all she can do is repay him with a punch in his face or by trying to manipulate him and kill his best friend or by using him to bring the objet of her shallow obsession back. Never showed any gratefulness to everything he's done for her. I don't mind her not liking him romantically, but does she have to be so cold and condescending...? - Liinde

This ship was dead long ago.
Best boy Naruto and best girl Hinata confessed, dated and married and even have two kids now.
We love winners

I'm glad that he ended up with Hinata instead, I can only imagine how toxic and abuse this relationship would've been if it became cannon.

THis ship sucks die

4 Orochimaru x Anko

After all the suffering Orochimaru made Anko go through you still had to ship them? - XxembermasterxX

5 Itachi x Sasuke

This ship is incest first of all, and not cute. They had a great brothers bond at first but then Sasuke wanted revenge and wanted to kill him. So even if they were not related, it would still be abusive. It is a terrible ship, hands down

They're brothers for all of shipping's sake, and a Sasuke is probably 12 something while Itachi is 18 (talking about Naruto not Shippuden). - XxembermasterxX

6 Itachi x Ino

This is a thing, wow I never knew this existed until I explored the dark side of the fandom. - XxembermasterxX

But I think they will make a great couple don't you think? - Redrocky416

7 Sasuke x Sakura

She's extremely abusive, annoying, guilt-tripping and won't get off his fu cking back. She deserved to die alone to be honest. Regardless of what you may think of Sasuke, they should've never guilt-tripped him and destroyed his character just to make a pink trashbag happy. - Liinde

How did this happen? Since when did Sasuke like her? THEY ARE OPPOSITES.

This is a popular ship heck it's even canon, but it is here because it is abusive. - XxembermasterxX

8 Sasuke x Hinata

I don't understand why this pairing is so popular. Sure the Hyuga x Uchiha thing could be interesting, but even so it makes no sense. Hinata is way too obsessed and hang up on Naruto to care or consider anyone else. He never showed signs of liking her either. And just because she wasn't his fangirl like all the others don't make them a better couple (even if SasuSaku is worse, but I think SasuIno or SasuKarin had more potential in canon - even if I ship none). And I don't think Sasuke should be in a relationship. Some people don't need a wife to be happy. That's his case. - Liinde

Nothing between them. - XxembermasterxX

9 Hinata x Sakura

After all these nonsense yaoi ships why don't I add a nonsense yuri ship just to prove that the yuri fandom can be as bad as the yaoi fandom. - XxembermasterxX

10 Sasuke x Ino

Not gonna happen. - XxembermasterxX

The Contenders

11 Sasuke X Orochimaru

Orochimaru tried to take over Sasuke’s body by killing him...

12 Naruto x Hinata

If you had to rewrite his entire past, personality and character as a whole just to shoehorn this walking fanservice tool in his life because they had like three meaningful interactions in a 700 chapter manga, then maybe you should consider other pairings with him that make more sense. Or no pairing at all, which would have been miles better. But even so, there are other Naruto pairings that don't require to rewrite his entire character just to fit the other's. - Liinde

Absolute no development in the manga, the anime did a better job, but it still retcons everything and is an asspull

13 Kakashi x Iruka

Kakashi is about 10+ years Iruka's senior. Seriously? - killmenow

14 Kakashi x Naruto

How old is Kakashi? while Naruto is like 12.

Pedophilia.

15 Tsunade x Naruto

Incest ships... are really gross...

Unrelated to say. Since that, I saw and remember your comment, I shall say this since that I frankly quite don't have time and don't give a damn: Albert Einstein married his cousin as his 2nd wife. You do know that, don't you? - Kevinsidis

16 Gaara x Sakura

Just no dude...it triggers me and other gaara fangirls

I WAS UNAWARE OF THIS SHIP'S EXISTENCE AND ALSO UNAWARE OF HOW GOOD THIS IS

17 Kisame x Sakura

This needs no context. it is literally the worst.

18 Naruto x Ino

I don't even have words..r they even in one scene together just the two of them

19 Kakashi x Sasuke
20 Itachi x Sakura
21 Madara x Sakura
22 Naruto x Boruto

Um this ship makes me angry because Naruto is Boruto's dad!

23 Kakashi x Obito
