So pick your favorite and start voting! Enjoy (:

The Top Ten

1 USUK- Axis Powers Hetalia

USUK is the best pairing I've ever seen. Long time ago, I think that history is boring and it's not worth studying. You know, but thanks to Axis Power Hetalia, I gain interest in history, and thanks to the pairing "USUK" I'm now in love deeply with this paring. They are just... something is just special about them. There is a very touching doujinshi call "From a new world with love" It's a real fact history doujinshi (USUK) it's very touching, I cried. I just love USUK. They belongs to each other, and without each other, they will be nothing!

I have liked many, many, many yaoi pairings throught my years of being a fan, but this couple has had the biggest impact! Not to mention it makes listening to WWII lectures in history class a little less boring!

They are a perfect couple in my eyes, and probably one of the best I've seen yet. I have yet to run out of ideas for fan-fiction involving these too, and the range of what they have been through allows for so many takes on stories.

Not to mention they are a ' sexy couple. o. ~

Because of this pairing, now I like yaoi XD

Ok, how many of these ships are actually CANON?! - PhoenixAura81

2 Sasuke Uchiha & Naruto Uzumaki - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha & Naruto Uzumaki - Naruto

Sexy it's like they are meant for each other in a gay yaoi way so hot!
Sasunaru is the most role played and placed together when most other yoai couple parings and that the mange even says the it's a lovetriangle between squad 7 because sakura loves sasuke, sasUKE love naruto. And naruto loves sakura people and also I believe that naruto and SasUKE are ment to be together. Just thing about it and read the mangas description and you will see what I'm talking about but the kiss in the manga and anime totally gave them the yaoi title. And also that sasuke didn't kill naruto also gave then a love show but I believe narutos going to forget Sakura and move or run right into sasuke's arms and live A loving yaoi life and Sakura gets lee or ino who knows I only think about the relationship between naruto and sasuke so just think about what I said and tell it doesn't sound like they where meant to be together from the beginning.

They are the best couple. It's not because they look good together (they do though), but it actually makes sense for them to be together. They both hold a big influence on each other. Naruto has dedicated himself to save sasuke above all else and is even willing to sacrifice his life alongside him as long as sasuke is free from his anguish. Sasuke has the hardest time refusing to acknowledge that naruto means anything to him but in the end he's the only one able to rile him up and have a change in his character. Even Itachi admits that the only one that can save/change sasuke is naruto. Sasuke has always rejected any girl who confessed to him and has even gone so far as to killing them just to have fun or because of they're a burden. Naruto has gotten two girls to confess to him and he has told one that he hates bull, and he hasn't even bother to acknowledge the other one. Naruto is always thinking of sasuke even while he's trying to save the rest of the world. Sasuke is shocked that ...more

Sasuke and Naruto is hands down the best couple out there. The dynamic of their relationship is like no other I've seen. It's true that Naruto seems to be more obsessed with Sasuke but I feel like Sasuke does have a reserved spot in his heart for Naruto as well. The way Kishimoto tells the story of similar life styles and how making certain decisions can change a person entirely. They complete each other in ways that none of the other characters can even compare. Naruto is the only one who can stand up to Sasuke and affect his emotions the way he does. Sasuke doesn't want to admit it but I bet he feels happy that Naruto hasn't given up on him. He is baffled that Naruto would spend so much of his time chasing after him but because of that, his trust and faith in Naruto doesn't disappear. He knows that everyone else out there has given up on him except Naruto. Naruto loves Sasuke to an extent that surpasses friendship. I mean, I love my friends to death but if they went evil, killed ...more

meh ship!

3 Germany & Italy - Hetalia

This is perhaps one of the most popular pairings in the fandom (besides USUK). I'm not sure why I like it more than USUK, but it just seems to be smoother than USUK's relationship. Italy can be a little annoying, along with America, and Germany and England are both so easy to set off. But if you think about it, Italy and Germany have so many canon moments that it's ridiculous. England and America have some, sure, but I've seen more evidence of FrUK than I have of USUK. GerIta has the most, however. Italy has asked Germany to kiss him, which he did, and Germany has said "Ich liebe dich, " which translates to "I love you" in English. They're constantly together, no matter how much Germany may want to kick Italy out (though that was mostly done when they first met).

Overall, it's canon. Get over it USUK shippers.

This really deserves to be Number 1, not Number 9. But then again, that's just my opinion.

Who can resist the sweetness of the smexy German? I've adored this pairing since I saw Hetalia, though I do love AkuRoku the most, this one is definitely second

Well, after the Bon San Valentino chapter, we know that Germany likes Italy. Nothing is more adorable than a serious German getting jealous over a clueless Italy's flirting.

Well, speaking as an open-minded Hetalian, I'm perfectly fine with any ship in the fandom except for Norway x Butter, and Iceland x Fridge. (Those pairings... *shudder* I'm happy to say that it's a ship I don't want to see sail.) Anyway, I think that GerIta is a cute ship. Germany's stoic personality and (North) Italy's carefree, charismatic nature balance each other out, and I truly think this couple should be number one.

4 Shizuo & Izaya - Durarara

At first, when I was about 15 episode I thought "How people can see them together?! They really hate each other, they just can't be together! " But now I'm just crazy about them. My favourite yaoi couple for ever!

When I first heard of this pairing, I became a little curious and started watching the anime. I was anticipating and waiting for the episode where they interact, so when I was on episode 2 (I believe it was) I laughed at how Shizuo threw a vending machine at Izaya and that was the first (I think) that he didn't dodge a throwing object at him until later on in the episodes. As it goes on, I became obsessed with the two because of the way Shizuo was so focused on killing Izaya that it came to a point where he can even smell him! I was even cheering and praising at Erika for pairing them up, despite them hating each other. I think my obsession peaked up when I came to the last episode where Shizuo was really intent on killing Izaya that he made a ruckus to the city because of the signs and vehicles. I really love the chemistry between these two and I always think that they're expressing their love for each other through hate to the extent where they want to kill each other. I'm a sucker ...more

This love/hate relationship is so canon, it's not even funny. They're perfect for each other! With all their fights and comments about each other, how can people not see how they are obvious together and meant-to-be?

It’s abusive, but cute

5 Nezumi & Shion - No.6 Nezumi & Shion - No.6

These two are amazing! Now I already love the whole sweet uke and badass seme, but these two take it to the next level. This isn't the simple seme with a bad past sees light through a sweet uke. They balance each other out! Not only is Shion showing Nezumi light, but it's also Nezumi that's showing Shion just how cruel the world can be. However, Nezumi does it in a way that won't completely break Shion. Not only that, but it's not just a fact of having them save each other; it's simply the fact that the two just work together well. I just see them and I can already see a married couple! They fight and argue, but they also care about each other more than anyone else. I nearly died on the scene when Nezumi told Shion never to give him a goodbye kiss again, and I was out when Shion tried to kill that guy for Nezumi. I also just love how when Shion begins to lose who he is Nezumi is desperate to save him. All in all, the two are not only adorable and perfect together, but they're always ...more

There's something so captivating by this ship. It was displayed so naturally and then slowly grew into the beauty I see it as. Everything, from the cute little dance to the goodbye kiss, just seemed so natural and realistic. In just 11 episodes, it has managed to mesmerize me with its brilliance. Nezumi and Shion act like a couple already they share the same bed, argue, feed each other, and care for one another in their own different ways. They were complete opposites kuro-shiro appearance, one's life was filled with privilege, the other's was tainted with loss. But they're more than just your typical badass seme - naive uke combo, they balanced each other out in such a way, that they affected each other. Shion opened Nezumi's eyes with his resolve to find a compromise, and slowly destroying Nezumi's idea of "black and white." Nezumi showed Shion just how cruel the world could be. Shion's change was obvious when he took drastic measures to protect Nezumi by shooting to kill ...more

I love this pairing. I almost voted for others but then I saw this. They're love is so adorable since Shion is so pure and fragile yet Nezumi is so cold and harsh without meaning. Dispite that fact that Nezumi has hurt Shion so much Shion just smiles and forgives him, while Nezumi thinks he's no good for him and is scared to love him back. Then there's the fact that there love is doomed, it's like Romeo and Juliet. Nezumi wants to destroy No. 6 and Shion wants to save it. Dispite knowing, Shion can't bring himself to leave Nezumi because he loves him too much. Then there's the scene that dooms their love the most when Nezumi leaves Shion for good. I tear up when I think about them. It's bittersweet and you can't let go.

NO GO HOMOPHOBE FOR SHION AND NEZUMI

6 Sanji & Zoro - One Piece Sanji & Zoro - One Piece

If they aren't made for each other, I think the very foundation on which love is built would crumble. What they have defies all forms of conventional love, they share something very profound, something that's very very close to love and at the same time, is a million light years away from it. The amount of trust that the two share implicitly is something that can't be expressed in words. They claim to dislike each other and always find a way to pick a fight, but when times are hard, the person that each of them rely on the most, is the other. There's plenty canon proof for that. On top of that, they each have such distinctive qualities that bring about a uniqueness to the pair; Sanji with his kindness that's hidden within insults, curly eyebrows, cooking, lady-worship, black-leg style, double-breasted black suit, cigarettes, self-sacrificial attitude when things take a turn for the worse, and Zoro with his boundless determination, green hair, three swords, three earrings, trademark ...more

It's never a natural One Piece episode if these two don't fight or hurl insults at each other. They can't help but be focused on each other, making them probably the most popular pairing in the series (at least, fan-verse). Also, you might want to check out the Zoro's sacrifice episode. If you haven't shipped them yet, that episode will convert you.

They are so meant for each other. They always fight but they know that they can always count on one another in an important battle. They may not appear to get along but that is because the two of them are extremely stubborn and have difficulties expressing their feelings a lot of the time.

I love this pair since I was 13. I mean I never heard of Yaoi but I shipped them extremely! I love those Guys so much togheter. I hope I found more of them in Yaoi pages! (♡--♡)

7 Usagi & Misaki - Junjou Romantica Usagi & Misaki - Junjou Romantica

There are many interesting couples and it is hard to choose who is best because storylines are sometimes really different. However, choosing this couple, it can never go wrong.

They always boost up my mood, very funny and lovable couple.

Out of all yaois I've seen, I LOVE this couple more than others! No matter what this will always be the best in my book and others

Love this ships it is so cute

8 Sebastian & Ciel - Kuroshitsuji Sebastian & Ciel - Kuroshitsuji

So difficult to choose! >. < But I gotta say, Sebastian and Ciel. I love them to death. I love their dark, twisted relationship and I think it is incredibly cute how Ciel can't seem to live without Sebastian. I really think Sebastian cares for Ciel as well, in his own way.

Well the obviously shounen-ai hints are in the manga XD though it might ever officially be shounen ai. However the reader can definitely feel a connection between the two as more than master and servant. What I love about their relationship is that there's no romance going on but you can feel that they do care for each other. Of course Sebastian likes to see Ciel being frustrated or hurt but I think the only reason is that he likes seeing his master react and the same with Ciel.

I have just recently started watching Kuro, and I can say with 100% accuracy that Sebastian and Ciel have stolen my heart. I don't know when I started shipping them together, maybe around episode 2? But then Liz came in and well, let's just say I was part of the mob of people telling Ciel to just slap her! Elizabeth reminds me of Risa Harada from DNAngel, there's just something about her that makes me just... ugh. Now, I'm not trying to bash her or anything, but I just can't stand the thought of Ciel ending up with Liz or anyone else! I would rather have him paired up with no one. So, I know I've started rambling, but in conclusion: SebaCiel is my drug. I can't have a single moment where it's not somewhere in my mind.

This is on my guilty pleasure ship list

9 Takano & Ritsu Onodera - Sekaiichi Hatsukoi Takano & Ritsu Onodera - Sekaiichi Hatsukoi

One of the best yaoi out there and its really cute!

I love how their heartbreak is real and how they're showing how it affected them... And now that they're falling in love with each other all over again (if they ever stopped loving), it's a lot more exciting!

I just love their love story. And it's funny too -in every way-. But definitely, cute and really heartwarming. I've never been in love, but this manga made me understand what true love is -and what it should be- and that it's just beautiful.

They're so perfect! The way that Takano is cold towards everyone except for Ritsu just shows how much he cares.

10 Lelouch & Suzaku - Code Geass Lelouch & Suzaku - Code Geass

I have many reasons to call this pairing my favorite. For one, the anime is one of the best I have ever seen. Lelouch is such a deeply emotional and complex character that clashes very well with Suzaku's own turbulence and their equally clashing views on how to handle situations make character development some of the best I've ever seen. Two, they both know they love each other dearly no matter what happens and it's proved once Lelouch makes his plans for Zero Requiem and Suzaku goes along with it to make the world a better place. And lastly, they are adorable together. Lelouch is the serious one with all the beauty and charisma of a true prince while Suzaku is loyal and devoted to him. (At least in the end. )

Their relationship is such an awkward one; with Lelouch being Zero and Suzaku wanting to kill Zero.

Definitely worth watching Code Geass for

This anime broke my heart couple of times, being your regular otaku I watched a lot of anime, I can totally say that this anime is extremely well made; from a forever twisting plot to a certain glasses wearing school girl humping a table. The ship Suzalulu is like a inferno compared most of the other ships in the anime world, Lelouch's personality is naturally deceptive while Suzaku is almost the complete opposite, always rushing into battles hardly ever worried for his life, they balance each other perfectly. Plus, in the end even after so much conflict Suzaku decided to continue following Lelouch's so they can create a perfect world, Lelouch trusting his life to Suzaku, all of that just shows no matter what happens they'll always get back together in this cruel world.

P.S. If you haven't already seen this anime yet, I highly recommend it, it is just too irresistible for me.

I love lulu and suzaku, they're perfect together. There's no need for more explanations.

The Contenders

11 Tamaki Souh & Kyoya Ootori - Ouran Highschool Host Club

Just... Yes. Have you ever noticed that, without Haruhi, the Host Club is a complete yaoi cycle? Kaoru and Hikaru, Mori and Hani, and... Tamaki and Kyoya. It's obvious! Though, I prefer Kyoya with Nekozawa (/shot), I also adore this pair.

While I wasn't originally into this paring, a friend of mine introduced me to it and I realized how adorable they were. Tamaki's enthusiasm and charm really balances out Kyoya's intelligence and aloof manner, and it's nice to watch them interact with one another.

This pairing is so cute! Tamaki's ridiculous, quirky actions matched with Kyouya's cold albeit laid-back nature is the sort of thing I look for in my yaoi couples. It's probably the only one where I would have Tamaki's personality be the dominate one. KyoTama all the way~

Daddy and Mommy are the best!

12 Naruto & Gaara - Naruto Naruto & Gaara - Naruto

My favorite Naruto shipping. It takes only one person to change another's life forever, and in this case, it's for the better. They understand each other better than anyone else could. Not that many have tried when they were growing up. I can see Naruto getting Gaara to loosen up and Gaara teaching Naruto the finer point of tactics...

I've always liked this shipping because to me, it has always been the most sweet and romantic. Naruto meets Gaara and changes his outlook on the world which makes him become more open. To me, they have a special bond incomparable to any of their other friendships.

Oh, come on guys this is real obvious with the two. Naruto and Gaara are destined for each other is real clear. I mean they both have a Fox spirit in themselves and both are hated by the people (not all however). And I think Naruto is a really cool seme and Gaara a Sweet Uke. Also, I think the couple is much better as SasukexNaruto. And really great is Naruto as a seme.

My favourite shipping of all time. I love the enemies turned lovers stories. Naruto works hard and gets through to Gaara. The similar backgrounds and experiences showing how a with a small change either could have ended up exactly like the other.
And if Gaara speech in shippuuden right before the war isn't a cannon love declaration I don't know what is - Deadelven

13 Light Yagami & L - Deathnote Light Yagami & L - Deathnote

While most people like to mention the handcuffs, I'll just say that the only reason L ended up dying was, basically, because he let Raito be his death. If he were not in love with him, he wouldn't have done that; Raito can also be seen as obsessing over L, even and especially after he's dead. He says that Near is below L, even when Near has proven himself to be a worthy opponent, and did end up winning. Obviously he places L on a higher pedestal than anyone else.

I've never been so in love with a paring. Most yaoi ships bother me because people "ship them just to ship them." But these two... They have a connection on such a deep and emotional level. It was so clear that they cared for each other. Even after l died, light proved multiple times that he has nothing but respect for L. Light kept going on about how "L is the greatest detective in the world." And don't forget how offended he was when he saw Near wearing L's mask. Light even ADMITTED in the manga that he got "too emotional for L". And that's when you realize, People say Light hates L, and that they don't belong together because "Light killed him." But think about it. If light was willing to kill his whole family if they found out about the death note, what makes you think he would hesitate to kill L, even if HE DID care for him? And what about them handcuffed together? Imagine all little events that happened when they weren't working? Such as, ...more

they are so cute and I considered L the more feminine on plus U have to admit that the scene where L dried lights feet was the best anime yaoi scene in the history of yaoi

U have my vote

14 Elliot & Leo - Pandora Hearts

Let's remember that Elliot literally died TWICE for Leo and he also killed his own family members who hurt/plans to kill Leo. His brothers were saying that they should "dispose" of Leo and then Elliot pops out of nowhere and killed them. Vanessa, his big sister, pushed Leo down the stairs and Elliot just beheaded her without hesitating, quite literally.

And let's remember that they are 2 boys at the age of 16, they touch each other a LOT of times, it's not even countable. And if you haven't paid enough attention to the manga then maybe you haven't noticed that whenever something that seems like danger is coming, they both try to protect each other. Elliot literally shields Leo with his own body in chapter 25 and he did it almost immediately when he saw danger coming in Leo's way.

Now that Elliot is dead, Leo is broken. Until the very end, Leo was always thinking of Elliot, and trying to move on but almost in everything Leo appears in, he always gets flashbacks ...more

They're two parts of a whole, and when one lost the other part he was embellished in complete and utter sorrows and emptiness. These two are meant no matter what way you see it. They see each other as equals. They fight with each other strongly, but fight for each other with more strength. They can understand each other with only a bat of an eyelash. And, most importantly, they complete one another. Without the one, the other falls to pieces. And that's exactly what happened to Leo. This couple always brings me to tears, and I wish they had just been together. But eventually they will meet again. After all, they need each other.

Man, if anyone has read the newest Pandora Hearts chapters (57 to 60) you should see why this couple is not only oh so cute but oh so tragic as well D:

Elliot is one of the most adorable and pitiful characters I have ever come across while Leo is a very interesting character himself. (You also have to feel bad for him after recent events- I mean come on, his screaming drilled a hole in my heart ;A;

There was also a Q & A corner for all the characters and in Leo's corner, the question was: If you could have one wish granted, what would it be? And Leo answered: "Ohhh, you could do something like that? Well then, bring Elliot back, come on, right now" and this absolutely broke me. EVEN THE AUTHOR SAID IT HERSELF THAT IF LEO WAS A GIRL THEN SHE WOULD HAVE PUT ELLIOT AND LEO TOGETHER AS A COUPLE UGGGHHH

15 Kotestsu Kaburagi & Barnaby Brooks Jr. - Tiger & Bunny

They deserve a better place than #42. Believe me I've read fanfics/doujinshis for 21 of the couples above and know some other ones too, but this one is by far the best I can say. Kotetsu and Barnaby cares deeply for each other and you can really tell from watching the anime. Their interaction in the last few episodes are pretty much what people who are in love would say and do to each other. Barnaby needs Kotetsu as much as Kotetsu needs him. They make a great couple and possibly a great family with Kaede as the daughter too. And they don't have creepy/unhealthy relationships where someone gets abused or sexually harassed or 'hate' each other so much they must be in love etc.

Don't get me wrong, some of the above pairings are my OTP too, but to say that they are the greatest... No I can't say they are because of the above reason. Although I must say JuubeixKazuki is great too. - dead_chivalry

THIS NEEDS TO BE HIGHER ON THE LIST! I'm so into this pairing I'm not even kidding. It's also nearly canon how they love one another and that their relationship is so far deeper than simple friends. This one is a true love to be sure. I mean, Barnaby princess carries Kotetsu three times in the anime! Friends usually don't do that. Also, the creator of Tiger & Bunny was asked about their 'relationship' and he said that they set it up so you can either take it that they have a heavy bromance, or they are "gay for each other." Actual permission. Sweet.

Mother of god this deserves such a higher place in the world. It's a magnificent pairing that stems from a mutual love for saving people and Kotetsu's nosiness. Oh Tiger and Bunny, why aren't you cannon. I would pay for one episode of cannon yaoi. I would pay so... So much.

The best

Definitely ADORABLE. The fan fictions of them are adorable. The pictures are hot. So cute, Itoki the cute, happy go lucky airhead and Tokiya the serious but hot singer.

Oh my glob, this couple is so cute and funny. I mean they can both be uke and seme, their personalities clash but that causes fireworks between them. If they were into all the same stuff, sure they'll get alibg easily but then it would be boring, I mean that's their relationship, we all can see it, theirs sparks between them.

They are so made for each other. Even though they are opposites, I think they can work it out♥

Cutest couple the blustering short older man and the commanding but gentle young lover are so cute specially now that Toshiba shows his adult form

MY Bleach OTP. They complement each other personality-wise and fighting style. It's like they're made for each other. Not to mention, they understand each other as far as wanting to protect those they care about and having lost someone important in their lives. I wish there are more fan fiction with this couple.

Some people just need to try and read a one shot about them. Its cute!

The opposite attracts couple.

20 Kageyama & Hinata - Haikyuu!! Kageyama & Hinata - Haikyuu!!

YES! YES! YES! I shipped them since I first started watching Haikyuu! Hinata saved Kageyama from hating volleyball and Kageyama is always angry and irritated, but he slowly warms up to Hinata. Hinata also prefers when Kageyama throws for him, and they're always obsessing over each other. It's seriously so perfect!

KageHina for life! (Sports anime are always full of gay ships)

With sports anime, I tend to ship everyone with everyone else but KageHina is my favourite ship for Haikyuu!. I love the journey that their relationship takes throughout the anime. They started out wanting to fight/play against each other and slowly began to work their way towards friends. Maybe they'll be more someday? I feel that they are perfect for each other.

As long as I'm here, you're invincible.

21 Victor Nikiforov x Yuri Katsuki - Yuri!! On Ice

I ship these two so much! They are so cute together! They had so many great moments like when Victor wanted to know more about Yuri and took his hand and they got really close to each other! It is undeniable the chemistry between these two. Also how they make each other better, like how Yuri lacks confidence but Victor teaches him how to be and how Victor kind of sucks as a coach like when he made Yuri cry but Yuri still supports him and teaches him to deal with people's feelings. Anyway they are always special moments like when they KISSED! ! They are always better together. They are an amazing couple!

I love them so much! They are so cute together! This should be higher! The chemistry between them is undeniable! They are meant to be with each other! Everyone can see how much they care for one another! This anime was truly amazing! I had so much feels! It brought tears to my eyes and happiness to my heart! No one can deny how much they change and better each other. Yuri became more confident in himself and he won second place in the grand pix finals thanks to Victor. Thanks to Yuri Victor doesn't have to be so closed off and feel like he can only accomplish things on his own. They really do belong together! They are so important to each other!

Let me just say this. When I first watched this I thought they were the cutest thing because you could see how Yuri depended on victor so much and how much he cared for him. Then Victor had always been closed off and thought that he needed to achieve greatness by himself, but he even said that after meeting Yuri that all changed. He is feeling all these new feelings just because of him. They are my OTP.

How can this not be in the top three, what

22 Axel & Roxas - Kingdom Hearts

I personally believe that this couple is much better than Sora and Riku, and there are probably other people out there who feel the same. I love Axel and Roxas; the chemistry between them is just so much different from Sora and Riku and I think its partly because of the fact that their "Nobodies" who lack hearts, and supposedly feel nothing. And yet, Axel DID feel a sort of attachment to Roxas and was sad when he left the organization. - Tentenxhinata

Honestly, I'm surprised this couple isn't in the top 10. In the game, it's obvious that they love each other. I mean the way Axel says "I just wanted to see Roxas... He made me feel like I had a heart. " And even when he says "Lets meet again... in the next life. " and Roxas nods and says "Yeah... I'll be waiting. " Honestly, I almost cried when Axel died and when Roxas became one with Sora.

The proof is always in the pudding. After trudging around the internet for various tidbits which show a strong bond between these two, no other pairing comes close, at least in regards to Kingdom Hearts. It is extremely difficult not to believe the great potential between Axel and Roxas when reading, playing, and reading some more of everything that has to do with Kingdom Hearts.

I wish they would just kiss in one of the Mangas if they did I would be like... Kyaa! Kawaii!

23 Spain & Romano - Axis Powers Hetalia

You gotta love this cheerful, passionate former conquistador and his troubled but cute Italian who was once his henchman. For all the unresolved sexual tension and 'will they won't they' moments from the anime and mangas, one can't help but wonder when will they admit their feelings and marry each other already! - dead_chivalry

These two are a match made in heaven! I say that this deserves to be at the top 10 as well!

Both their personalities complements each other making their relationship a beautiful harmony. Both are passionate, both are agricultural and had pasts that they could not escape, like Spain's conquistador days and Romano's Mafia days. Spain would always be there to protect Romano and Romano would always find a way to help Spain. True, they were pictured as either father-son or brother relationship, but anyone could see that the feelings are more deeper than that. They understand each other and knows how to push their buttons.

Spamano is just sweet, adorable, passionate, and maybe a bit dark...but it makes their relationship even more worth-while!

How can anyone not love these two? Spain is the only one who can can calm Romano down and is the only male Romano doesn't scream at. Not only that but their mutual love of tomatos and Spain's utter adoration of Romano makes them perfect.

You know this cute couple You got watch anime and you Will ship this couple very bad

Yuki and Shuichi are absolutely just the cutest, utterly dysfunctional couple. They've gone through so much together and honestly, if they weren't meant to be, then they wouldn't still be together. Their relationship is sprinkled with a lot of truism too, the fact that Eiri is hesitant at first, and the history that goes way behind. In fact, Shuichi is having a hard time balancing his career and love life.

Shuichi is incredibly dedicated, and also very clumsy and adorable. He knows that he's already fallen in love with Yuki, and doesn't bother to hide it much. However, he still has to make an effort to transition into Eiri's family. After all, his brother-in-law is Shuichi's boss. Eiri, on the other hand, slowly falls in love with Shuichi, and eventually realizes it, too. The moment Shuichi barreled his way into Eiri's life obviously changed... Everything,

The entire story of Gravitation is incredibly hilarious, and also very sweet. The fact that Eiri is having a harder ...more

They are THE classic couple. Gravitation is what brought BL to the spotlight. I mean, other animes had undertones of it but Gravitation was centered around BL.

OMG Shuichi is so adorable x3 and Yuki is just SO HAWTT lolool and then together they just make a classic and beautiful couple :3

I absolutely adore this couple! Shuichi loves Yuki despite his past sins, and Shuichi's the only person Yuki's given a damn about in years. It's so cute~

25 Trafalgar Law & Monkey D. Luffy - One Piece

This is one of my favorite yaoi parings

Hell yes!
I like a bunch of different yaoi pairings, but for some reason, this is my number 1. And I am pretty sure it will stay that way for a long while.

I absolutely love this paring

They are so cute!

26 Francis Bonnefoy & Arthur Kirkland (franceXBritian) - Axis Powers Hetalia

Canon. It's so fluffy and beautiful! It's like a big gay Pride and Prejudice! (That was a compliment). Wow, I'm rather sad that this has no votes. For what it's worth, the top pairing on this list is adoptive-incestuous. Which you may be fine with, but as a personal opinion... I find it a bit unsettling. Sorry.

I think FrUK is one of the best yaoi couples that I've seen in Hetalia and in my life. Even if you go and check out some real history you can see that this pairing makes a lot if sense. And in the Hetalia movie: Paint it white it said that they love eachother sexually. And they are seen together a lot throughout the series. This couple makes complete sense!

A bit of a thou doth protest too much in Arthurs case, It seems as though although they don't get along on the surface, there is a lot of unexplored tension. This makes the story more intriguing and is slightly canon so you feel a bit less odd for thinking it.

It's FrUk, I say no more

27 Zoisite & Kunzite - Sailor Moon

Why on earth isn't this higher? Their love is so beautiful! Zoisite is utterly devoted to Kunzite and Kunzite manages to calm Zoisite down and help him in missions for Queen Beryl. If only they could've lived. ;___;

These two are one of the classic yaoi pairs in my opinion. Such a cute contrast of cool/aloof and fiery/impatient.

Their love for eachother goes very deep. Even when they were apart they still loved eachother. Dead or alive they will do anything for eachother. What a relationship. Wish it could happen more often.

I love this ship, it's so cute^-^

28 Sweden & Finland - Axis Powers Hetalia

I have never found a pairing, yaoi or otherwise, that makes me go" Aww! " so often. They really do have an adorable relationship, especially since Sweden does anything he can to make Finland happy. It doesn't hurt that Sweden is the only character with a confirmed sexuality- homosexual, and he only acts that way towards Finland... And with Sealand as their son we have the entire fluffy family, no Mpreg required. SuFin is my OTP, without question. I love it.

These two are just adorable, and they have a lot of history together- after all, Swedish is an official language of Finland. These two wouldn't be the type to fight very often, and when you add in Sealand (whom Sweden adopted) you have a really sweet little family. I love it~

Sweden is a scary looking guy so pairing him up with Fin is not hard. I adore how caring Sweden is to finland and hope one day I can have a relationship like that

Yes! hands down, OTP.

29 Dave & John - Homestuck

Saddens me that homestuck pairings aren't higher. But I mean there are so many pairings that it would take up the whole page.

! I'm surprised this is still only 77! (not that I have any problem with USUK, but still. ) I love this pairing to bits, and it's almost canon! (almost. )

It's so close to being canon, it's practically canon already.
We all know the truth, John.

Yes homo.

31 Roy Mustang & Edward Elric - Full Metal Alechimst

Yeah, this was pretty much my first yaoi couple. I loved them because of the UST which caused them to lash out so often at each other. Also, I love them because Roy is very dedicated to caring for Ed, and the potential for this couple would increas enormously as soon as Ed realised all Roy does for him and began to allow himself to care about the man in return. Also, it is obvious to me that Roy was super-depressed when Ed left for Germany--he didn't come back until Ed had pretty much returned. And the look on Roy's face when he sees Ed during Shamballa... ! So good! Unfortunately, the amazingly unambiguous ending to Shamballa and the original anime series was not allowed to remain. By the end of the manga, and the new Brotherhood Edward has been successfully hetero-paired by the manga-ka. Not cool, mate. Not. Cool. You do your fans a great disservice when you cement the pairing so obstinately--like a big 'F you; you're wrong' to all us wishers. Plus, Winry totally belongs with Al. ...more

I tend to pick a yaoi couple I like for almost every series I get into, but this one is just so cute! Their relationship is really just a lot of screaming, but I live this ship to death!

This is the first yaoi couple I got obsessed with and it is still my favourite. I just love how they are both extremely stubborn, so they're relationship is always somewhat like a war. Yet, it is very cute how they both still show their affection towards eachother, and how because of the world they live in and their past, they deny their love at first but then it always becomes so strong they can't help it. They are so cute~! expecially with short-tempered, little edward, who always acts so strong yet hew still needs roy in his life. And roy, who is a very determined colonel who would do anything to reach his goals, but then edward, his only weakness (other then hughes), is someone he would give up his life to protect. I find that they are made for eachother, and that their relationship is one of the most intresting, akaward, amusing, and adorible relationships ever! SO KAWAII!

This would be really hot but I still don't think it’s enough for me to ship them. anyways, roy has hawkeye and edward has winry - 911

32 Gary & Ash - Pokemon Gary & Ash - Pokemon

The show Pokemon is for children, so they obviously will never be together. But the being for children doesn't mean that they can't flirt with each other. There are little hints in the anime that there might be somewhat of a crush going on between the two.

There are some hints if you think about it. I think they're perfect together! The producers will probably never pair Ash up with anyone, much less Gary. But a girl can dream right?

Realistically, I know it will never become canon. But, these two are cute together and the history they have is very interesting.

Please stop, ash is like 10 and gary is probably the same age or a year older than him. who in the right mind would ship these two?! - 911

33 Xerxes Break & Gilbert Nightray - Pandora Hearts

I think they would make a cute couple

They... I just don't even know how to describe how much I love these two! Break is always teasing, and that makes me so happy because GIL MAKES SUCH CUTE REATIONS!

I have to prefer oz and gilbert over break and gilbert. For one they have history together and two when I watche the second or first show I believe, when he gives oz the hat and break or shonan said they liked each other you can see the hurt in gilberts eyes.

I'm prefer Break being the uke but... This couple is cute as hell~

34 Ike & Soren - Fire Emblem 9/10 Ike & Soren - Fire Emblem 9/10

The best Fire Emblem Pairing in my opinion, and also in my opinion the past yaoi pairing. Considering you combine big, stong, muscular Ike with dainty, effeminate Soren, it seem to be a winning combo in my book for a good Seme /Uke combo XD - Seraphimchild

Their relationship is solid and emotional, and while I'm generally a het fan and ship several other het pairs even within the same game, this goes pretty far into the 'obviously not just friends' territory. The only lousy part is that Soren's usually ukeified pretty bad in fanworks.

Yes. Definitely one of the greatest pairs in the series.

They love each other

35 Kakashi Hatake & Iruka Umino - Naruto

The most popular pairing in Naruto, as shown by a massive survey undertaken in Japan. This was ahead of Sasuke/Naruto by about 270,000 votes. The defining moment of this pairing would probably be when Kakashi saved Iruka from one of the six paths of Pein during the destruction on Konoha. Also, in the spin-off series Naruto SD, Iruka's notebook had a love heart and a scarecrow (the symbol used for Kakashi throughout Naruto) on it. Iruka's caring personality and fits perfectly with Kakashi's troubled past. It's simply a match made in heaven!

I've always shipped this pairing and I've never really questioned it, unlike my other ships where I usually end up asking myself 'why am I so in love with this ship? ' I feel like this ship was just meant to be and that's probably why I never thought twice about it. Iruka's sweet personality just melds together with Kakashi's mischievous one in total synchornicity. I've always had a head cannon where they both adopt Naruto and they're this super cute, happy family that they all deserve. That probably cemented my love for this ship too actually. haha.

Now this is a original couple, they compliment each other, I mean Iruka is the blushing mother hen uke and kakashi is the mysterious super cool dad seme. I mean they could be canon so easily, we know iruka cares for and lovws kakashi sensei and kakashi loves his iruka sensei, they are just meant to be.

These pairing is so popular that I can't BELIEVE THE RANKING! Like duh, they have the cutest doujis ever! Cute, as in very fluffy! My earliest pairing that got me into yaoi couples!

36 Yukito Tsukishiro & Touya Kinomoto - Cardcaptor Sakura

This pairing was the start of my yaoi adventure. I watch CCS when I was quite young, but I never questioned why Yukito's only love was Touya. I suppose even then I appreciated how much they love each other. Yukito was the only one Touya tolerated and Yukito had no eyes for anyone else. This pairing needs more appreciation and love. They are also the reason I love CLAMP so much. This sweet pairing taught me, from a very young age, that love is love no matter the gender. That love is a rare commodity and that it comes in all forms of sizes and appearance. Yukito's open and sweet attitude just complimented Touya's protective closed attitude, they melded together perfectly filling each others vices and virtues. perfect synchronicity.

This one? This is my first yaoi couple. This pair made me realize very early on in my childhood that men can love men and that love is beautiful.

I think this pairing was what really got me interested in yaoi. They're really sweet together and compliment each other really well.

This pairing is my number 1 favorite.

I mean they are both gorgeous and handsome. Heck I don't even mind if they're like kissing or smthg. You can obviously see from both anime and manga that they really like each other even. I just wonder how they came to like each other though, the writer didn't write anything about it.

But truth to be told, I only started to like them a few years before. I start watching CCS when I was still in my, what? 6,7th grade I think. (Just to remind you, I still don't know anything about love or anything when I first watch CCS.) So I don't really workout that the two like each other. I just think that they look good together. Just, inseparable.

Well a~nyway, if you don't like yaoi pairings, just watch this anime. Trust me, you will start to think that yaoi might not be that bad at all.

37 Kaname & Zero - Vampire Knight Kaname & Zero - Vampire Knight

Such a sexy pair! When zero sucked kaname's blood it was like ACK! A cute pair that is worth mentioning. A very sexy pair. Look at the fanfiction. The only couple probably that will be both seme and uke. I prefer Zero as the uke though.

Now, I'm not a fan of this anime, but I will watch it for this couple, I absolutely hate yuky yuki, that's my opinion. Zero is totally Kaname's sliver haired uke and Kaname us the pureblood seme. All the fighting is sexual tension, and I swear kaname got aroused after zero drank from him, they do love each other, its just that stupid yuki in the way!

In the last episode when Zero points his gun at Kaname, he tells that he would kill Kaname next. Kaname tells that he knows that but also says that Zero can never pull the trigger. And in some scenes they are so close. That I thought this anime wads yaoi but sadly it's not. That stupid Yukon came in the way. Oh, both of them are so cute together.

38 Joey & Yugi - Yugioh

They do anything for each other and went through great leanghs each other & got so far & grew thanks to each other.

39 Eren Jaeger & Levi - Attack On Titan

This IS in my top three yaoi, I absolutely LOVE Eren and Levi together they make a perfect damaged couple. They both have crazy bad pasts but they still manage to come out on top, they are simply amazing together. I really don't know how this is not in at least the top ten of yaoi ships. I will love them forever.

A huge fandom, how is this ship this far back?

One of the biggest anime yaoi ships and it's not already on here. How.

love em

40 Tetsuhiro Morinaga & Tatsumi Souichi - Koisuru Boukun

In Challengers, when Moringa finally declared his love to Souichi Tatsumi, Souichi never run from him, it's more, he decided to kiss Morinaga (to help with that) he stay by his side.
In Koisuru boukun (the tyrant who fall in love) after be violated by Morinaga, Morinaga gives Souichi a call, in which he apologizes swears to never appear before him again. The proceeding disappearance of Morinaga throws Souichi, who still depends largely on Morinaga, into a frenzy. When Souichi finally finds Morinaga again, Souichi lets slip exactly how worried he was about Morinaga's disappearance, and he accept have sex with him for the purpose of Moringa can stay by his side.
I love his dysfunctional relationship which develops slowly into a romance over the course of the series

Number 1 favorite yaoi couple of all time. I watched the anime first (it was the first anime I'd ever watched) and instantly fell in love with it, and read the manga immediately after (my first manga and yaoi manga too). It made me love anime. I will ship this couple to the grave. Morinaga is so perfect, so relentless in chasing after Souichi it's so cute. And Souichi is so clearly in love with Morinaga but he's such a tsundere. Their relationship is very realistic (most of the time, lol) with Morinaga worrying constantly and being so insecure and Souichi just being so perfect and seriously, this needs to be higher up on the list.

Favorite till my dying day. Never seen hotter love scenes than in The Tyrant Falls in Love, especially in volume 4, right after their house burns down. Souichi not only INITIATES the love-making, he actually kisses Morinaga's wounded arm! I literally had tears streaming down my face.. I will always remember that scene.

Just No. 26? They deserve to be in the Top Ten! Jeez, read the manga and come back to this page. This pairing SHOULD NOT be all the way down here... ಠ_ಠ

41 Allen Walker x Yuu Kanda - D. Gray-man

Come on they connect to each other it's almost like they try to hide there feelings I mean if allen fell in love and demanded kanda to call him by his actual name and anyway there like cute names to push allen away but allen will keep pushing in tell he breaks the barrier iv been reading through the manga and I see that ether Lena lee and allen will go together kanda will be alone or allen and kanda wile Lena lee and Lavi are together.

This couple is just, I can't put it into words. They prove that relationships aren't perfect all the time, they just attract each other, a bit like opposites. They also show that not everyone shares the same perspective and they go through character development with each other. - 64crazy

The way Kanda really starts to fall for the poor bean sprout really melts your heart. Even through rough times, he still seems to warm up to him, and the way he calls out to him in the last volume is just... Ah, the way that it's written is just so heartfelt, this couple really taught me how to love.

I prefer Tyki x Allen but it’s ok-

42 Akihito & Asami - You're My Loveprize In Viewfinder

I really really feel this manga is underrated by many people. The plot is so so good and reasonable, the drawing part is undeniably beautiful. Plus, the manga builds Akihito as a strong character, not just some uke sits there and waits for his seme to do something.

The Naked Truth In Hong Kong series was perfectly dark and romantic - SUCH a great Manga and SUCH a great couple.

I have a feeling that not many people love this pairing, but I don't know! I love them so much! I love the anime and the manga for this! I can't help but love them together!

I think not many people have watched the anime or read the manga, which is a total shame. The couple just works. No matter what they're there for each other.

43 Canada & Prussia - Axis Powers Hetalia

They are so adorable. Everyone ignores poor Canada but honestly Prussia is one of the few who probably doesn't forget him. I have to mention that there is a New Prussia in Canada. I wonder how that happened...

My all time favorite, who better to go with the not noticed nation than one who is slowly being forgotten himself?

I love this couple because they are complete opposites but at the same time are perfect for one another

Is it weird for me to feel uncomfortable with this ship because I'm from Canada? - ThatZuhoStan

44 Jack & King - Cave Story Jack & King - Cave Story

Actually, I wrote another story with this pairing in it. It's called "Toroko Got Fingered", and you should read it because it's seriously one of the best-written, funniest and most importantly most underrated fanfics of all time.

At first, this may seem like a bizarre couple (and don't get me wrong, it kind of is), but then you realize just how perfectly these two mix with other. Their roles in the story are as follows:

Brains (Jack) and Brawn (King). It's almost like the two of them were literally MADE for each other. Also, it shows a certain especially soft side of King that you never really see in Cave Story proper. Aww - xandermartin98

However, this is also the hardest one to actually get right, unfortunately. Which is why it isn't higher - xandermartin98

45 Kira Yamato & Athrun Zala - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED
46 Harry x Draco - Harry Potter

Okay, here I go. Draco Malfoy was like Harry Potter's paparazzi that held a grudge. All he wanted was to be his friend and I can tell he totally adores him. Even after all this fighting, Draco does it for his attention, he wants him to notice him. I can only imagine he gets neglected 24/7 by his friends and family and he has nothing better to do but seek for attention. The poor boy thrives for it. Because he's a 'Malfoy' 'Slytherin' 'Death Eater' 'The One Voldemort Chose' and everything he has ever done. Do people not know that behind every villain and twisted character there's a huge, tragic backstory? I don't even want to know but I just think Draco really needs someone to pay attention to him. - ShadowPuppet2013

Harry potter is not anime!

Harry potter is not an anime? - 911

If this pairing isn't almost cannon I'm not sure what is.
Love at first sight. A declaration of friendship. rejection. And years of doing anything to be in contact with eachother including fighting. They are always worrying about what the other is doing and making a huge impact in each others lives - Deadelven

47 Haruka Nanase & Rin Matsuoka - Free!

The two have been together since they were children, so we're already at a good start! Not only do these two share history, but Rin and Haru have always been pulled in by each other. Rin always so desperately wanting to race with Haru nearly right after meeting, and Haru gave the 'ok' to Rin-something he probably wouldn't do for most people. Even after growing up they're connected in their own way. Always wanting to race each other, and-despite how Rin was-always wanting to be with each other. They're the only ones that can send each other's bloods racing like there's no tomorrow, and to them there'll be no tomorrow if they can't race each other and stay together. They're wonderful and I love them! Oh, and they did have to share a bed already!

I love this pairing! The look in Haru's eyes when Rin told him he'd never swim with him again said it all.

They are in love. They're so obsessed and attracted to each other and you can tell by the look in their eyes there's so much chemistry. When Rin never wanted to Swim with Haru again, Haru got heartbroken. They've been in Australia together, everything. You can tell they're in love and they're my OTP

its good - 911

48 Yamamoto & Gokudera - Katekyo Hitman Reborn!

The manga is full of hints! One panel shows Gokudera wearing a ver non-Gokudera like shirt... That looks somewhat similar to one Yamamoto was wearing in a previous chapter. In another panel, Yamamoto was seen wearing a belt/chain type thing on his pants. He and Gokudera disappear together... When they come back, said item is now on Gokudera's pants. Hm. Plus COME ON, they always seem to be around each other! Yes, I'm a total fan girl... So shoot me laugh out loud.

YES YES YES! 8059 5EVER! This pairing should rank more! They are perfect together there are like subtle moments between them in the anime and manga, they're always together even though gokudera claimed he despise Yamamoto and their personality just matched so well. Yamamoto is cool, positive, and happy go lucky while gokudera is opposite, he's loud, hot headed and rash. Yamamoto is the only dude that can handle gokudera, THIS PAIRING IS REAL! They're ONE OF MY TOP YAOI OTP OF ALL TIME

Umm... What I want to say yah.. Well, I think this yaoi couple will success and they're so cute together, I love to read story out of this couple

YES! I guess - nao

49 Akashi & Kuroko - Kuroko No Basuke

They complement each other so well. Akashi is fire, Kuroko is ice. Akashi is proud, Kuroko is humble. Akashi is intense, Kuroko is low-key. Akashi draws attention, Kuroko goes unnoticed. In my opinion, these two would be a wonderful match. Not only for their opposites attract -component, but because Kuroko also defies and challenges Akashi - which, I think, is exactly what Akashi needs.

I've been skimming the pages just to find this couple- they have so much angst, so much potential, so much for us to work with.

They look like brother or twin but it's better if they're a couple

So beautiful... one of my favorite pairing

50 Dirk & Jake - Homestuck

I absolutely love this pairing not just because they are incredibly sexy but both of them could be SEME or UKE

I came onto this website not knowing Homestuck (about a year or two ago), and now I do know Homestuck I love this pairing so it has my vote for sure

Since this ship is the most canon of all the yaoi ship, I think there is no need to debate over it, also they're just so cute together, and we know that they actually were together, so...

I ship this hard! - SamuiNeko

Ehh overrated if you ask me but I still ship it. - ShadowPuppet2013
