1. There's a lot of shippings I like in video games
2. If I made a thread for just that said shipping/video game, it'd most likely die. :|
soooooo I made this
Feel free to discuss all the pairings you love from other video games! Whether it be couples from anything ranging from the Final Fantasy games, to the World Ends With You or the Mario series, discuss them here!
1. Follow all SPPf rules
2. Don't spam.
3. No one liners
4. Stay on topic
So basically, start posting and have fun!
the answer we're looking for won't be found easily,
but we knew that when we took the first step.
Oh, this thread is a great idea, considering very few game shipping threads could last for very long. I've got so many pairings to talk about!
Spoiler:- La Pucelle pairings:
Croix/Prier- I'm usually not as fond of canon pairings, but when it's made up of two oddballs like C&P, it's great! Preir is a stubborn and independent sixteen year old sister of a church (though her behavior is the exact opposite of anything a sister should act like), and she kicks total demon butt (did I forget to mention the church she works at also serves as a demon hunting facility?)! While on a mission to save her little brother (who's sensitive and ran away because of her yelling at him), she teams up with Croix, who's a few years older and a professional demon hunter for hire. After her brother is saved, Croix ends up getting hired by the church, and the two of them (plus misc. other characters) end up constantly working together, with a lot of flirting and witty banter going on. Eventually, when miss independent finally realizes that she's fallen for him, something horrible happens and he becomes public enemy number one! Of course, it turns out he's had a tragic past and a former lover (one who, much to Prier's dismay, had been pregnant when she died), but in the end, Prier and Co. save him from the evil inside him and he moves on and learns to love her, too (Actaully, I found this last part of the game and paring pretty lame, I mainly like them for their witty banter and Prier's flustered reactions towards falling for him).
Culotte/Eclair- These two are the babies of the group, but at the same time, are two of the most sensible. Culotte helps keep his sister in line, but he's also the most perceptive. He was the first to realize that Prier liked Croix, and even though he was originally against it, he wanted his sister to be happy, so supported her all the way. Eclair is constantly facing pressure, being the next Queen and a candidate for the Maiden of Light (the one who destroys the ultimate evil, the Dark Prince). She tries to hide her exhaustion behind a cheery and sensible facade, but Culotte is the only one who sees through it right away and worries about her. Prier is actually closer to Eclair out of the two siblings, and once she finally catches on to the fact that the princess is suffering, she worries considerably more, but her brother is still the first one to notice her weariness. Another small factor about these two is that whenever they notice something, the first person they tell is usually each other, signaling that the two are good friends (despite each having a crush on another person in the group). Considering the one Culotte loved was too old for him (and died...), it wouldn't have worked out, and Eclair and Homard's personalities do not go well together, despite them both being royalty. Culotte needs someone sensible and caring like Eclair, and she needs someone who always knows what to do when she's not feeling well; someone who will always be by her side, like Culotte.
Culotte/Alouette- I'll keep this one mildly short. The pairing was doomed from the start due to the age difference, but Culotte's complete and utter adoration and love for her (yes, actual love) won me over. I'm glad near the end, she didn't harshly reject him or anything (I absolutely love a certain scene in which he's worrying over her, and she kisses him for being so sweet, leaving him standing there blushing until the scene ends five minutes later after the rest of the group has come and gone).
Homard/Prier- Eh, this was mainly due to this fanfic idea I had that won't leave me alone, but I think their personalities suit each other. Homard may be a prince, but he fits his role of sky pirate throughout the story very well, and I like to believe he remains in that profession. Prier's a troublemaking powerhouse who actually does care underneath her cynical exterior. She'd make a perfect addition to Homard's crew, and his perfect match, too!
Spoiler:- Grandia series pairings:
Grandia-Justin/Sue- Sue adored Justin as far more than a friend, it was obvious. He saw her as nothing more than his best friend who he had to look out for because she was a couple years younger, but he still cared. Had the two not run into Feena and had Justin not fallen hard and fast for her, I think Sue may have had a better chance at getting her man; still, she wanted his happiness most of all, and did grow to love Feena as a sister. I admire her strength in being happy for the love of her life being with another.
Grandia 2- Ryudo/Millenia- Millenia was part of the worst demon to ever come to life, and was supposed to be a heartless murderer, but upon her very first meeting with the crude Geohound (pretty much a hired hand who'd do anything for cash), she was intrigued by how much resistance he put up against her. At first, it was clearly just a game to her, tagging along with him occasionally and trying to get him to fall for her (she probably intended at first to let him have her way with him and then kill him), but, demon or not, she had a heart (probably due to the fact that she was sharing the body of a normal human girl, and so inherited more humane thoughts/feelings), and she ended up falling in love with him instead of the other way around. Ryudo, for the most part, continued to resist her charms (and why wouldn't he? He had a budding relationship with the girl who's body Millenia was 'borrowing'), but occasionally let her take control and have some fun. Much later in the game, Millenia reveals how desperate she is for him to love her back, and when he says he loves her and Elena, she takes matters into her own hands and kisses him before transforming back into Elena and pretty much ruining the almost-relationship between the two. Even later, she sacrifices herself to save Elena, because it's what she knows Ryudo wants, even though he's screaming at her to stop, to not do this to herself. After she dies, he doesn't even pay attention to Elena, he just cries (which is very unusual for him, because throughout the whole game, he's portrayed as rude, obnoxious, and uncaring, especially towards Millenia). In the end, Millenia gets revived and the two of them plus Elena defeat the ultimate evil (I've never actually beat the game, so I'm not sure what exactly happens to Millenia... either she turns into a human, or she disappears along with the other pieces of Valmar). Ryudo ends up Elena, much to my dismay. M&R's personalities fit so much better, really. He needs a strong, cynical and independent (she can take care of herself; she just likes to cling to Ryudo for fun) woman who can handle, return, and even enjoy his constant crude remarks and rude behavior, instead of a prissy school girl like Elena, who gets offended at every offhand comment he makes. Millenia needs someone who can match her power and wit and won't just let her do as she pleases; she needs a challenge like him.
Spoiler:- Final Fantasy 7 and spinoffs pairings:
Reno/Yuffie- Crazy, determined, sly and sneaky ninja girl on a contant sugar rush and a laidback guy who could kill a guy without blinking an eye and get any girl he wanted with a few good lines? Tell me this isn't the most amazing pair you've ever heard of. Yuffie would be like a never-before-seen challenge to Reno, accentuated by the fact that she hates his guts cause he's a Turk (an assassin for a corporation she hates, Shinra). The two would be lashing words at each other one moment, lashing weapons at each other the next, and lashing tongues on each other lastly (cause they're both animals underneath it all). Their relationship would be like a rollercoaster, full of ups and downs, going from some very erotic, kinky times between them, to pointing weapons at each other like it's a daily thing. It'd just be hilarious and amazing to watch, these two.
Zack/Cissnei- I loved watching these two flirt and interact with each other, despite Zack's budding relationship with Aerith. The two were clearly good friends and Cissnei so obviously liked him. She even let him escape from the turks because she didn't want him to die, not even thinking about what her betrayal would mean for her. Had Aerith not come into the picture, these two would definitely have gotten together.
Other pairings I really like but can't really explain right now- Zack/Yuffie, Zack/Tifa, Reno/Tifa, Reno/Aerith, Cloud/Aerith, Cloud/Yuffie, Reno/Cissnei, Vincent/Lucrecia
Spoiler:- Final Fantasy 10/10-2 pairings:
Tidus/Rikku- The two have good chemistry and moments. Tidus was her first non-Al Bhed friend, Rikku was his first friend in Spira, period. I love seeing her playfully bow down to him at Gagazet, and hearing their constant witty banter. Plus the two scenes in Guadosalem and Macalania based on affection levels with her were super cute. Seeing her hugging him tightly as he tries to ease her worries about her cousin, having him say he'd rather choose her than Yuna and her getting all flustered then saying (in Al Bhed so he couldn't understand) "Maybe someday!". Then she reveals all the personal details of her life to him, even talking about how she wants lots of kids when she gets married (subtling looking at him as she talks of marriage). They fit together better, two kids having fun.
Gippal/Paine- It's... hard to describe, considering there are no real in-game hints. The way I see it, the two were pretty close when they were in the Crimson Squad (he had to have spent a lot of time with her to teach her Al Bhed, and none of the others seem to no it, so that suggests that they spent a lot of time alone), and as everyone knows, Gippal is a total flirt, so there was bound to be something between the two of them. I love imagining how they would act around each other; I'm always thinking cynical remarks with disguised romantic implications.
Gippal/Yuna- Mainly due to the fact that, even though she's supposed to be so hung up on Tidus, Gippal piques her interest- she even comments that he's not that bad! I think these two would have a positive effect on each other. Yuna's so serious and uptight, she needs someone laidback and flippant like Gippal to get her to loosen up. Meanwhile, a sweet and serious girl like Yuna might just manage to stop Gippal's playboy ways. I love all those scenes in which he gets all up close and personal with him and she geeks out. This would be an amusing pairing to see happening.
Other pairings- Gippal/Rikku, Baralai/Yuna, Baralai/Paine, Nooj/Paine, Auron/Lulu, Wakka/Lulu
Whew! Thats it for now, thankfully. I'll probably think of more later, but I'm tired of typing for now...
Garney x Shyst/Thyst
Reminds me of Naruhina a bit here. Shyst being timid and self doubting whilst Garnet is a bit any main character, determined. He demands world peace and they are good friends and I think Shyst would like to share piece with Garnet. hehe There was this adorable picture of them.
Spoiler:- image has spoilers:
Pearl x Dearl/Dale
Well it's easy to think Dearl is a girl, Ithought that at first until I noticed his name in Japan is Dale.
Peridot x Opa
The two are perfect for each other... seriously.
Spoiler:- spoiler images:
Tuff E NUff/Dead Dance
Limited characters but I loved the game and was hooked when I was younger, the music was great and that.
Kotono x Syoh - I think they would have been a good couple. I think they have the looks and the part, not mention it would be hot. I used to make fan fic ideas about these two in love when I was about 7. XD
Kotono x Jade/Jado - I have no idea why the US version changed Jado's name into Jade. XD But I think it's some fun random crack for the lols.
And there will be more coming up.

Yay, video game ships. I don't have that many, but yay.
In order of sanest to crackiest;
CharmyXCream (Sonic the Hedgehog) - Love this ship, just love it. They haven't interacted too often in the games (once), but when they did, they didn't to bear any hatred of each other (you'd understand more if you ever saw that 'once'). Sonic X had a lot more interaction between them, and they got on really well, moreso than Amy or the rest of the Chaotix. Aside from all that, I just think they'd suit each other. One is a polite and naive socialite girl, the other is a scruffy and hyper detective working for end's meet. They compliment each other.
Also, I know there is a Sonic the Hedgehog shipping thread, but I don't feel that it's worth it to put one ship down when you have three.
Tiny TigerXCoco Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot) - This one's always been rough, not least because I used to hate Tiny. He was just a dumb muscle man. In Twinsanity, his appearance made him look like he had a hidden intelligence to him, and that's where I started to really like him and looked at the possibility of this ship. Crash of the Titans came and there was even MORE fuel for it, so it became a fully-fledged ship. Basically, I imagine it like 'Beauty and the Beast', with Coco being the beauty and Tiny being the Beast. Coco could slowly discover the sensitive emotional side of Tiny, and Tiny could come to appreciate Coco. They've interacted enough for this to happen.
Now, let's make the jump from somewhat sane to complete insanity; it's a crack-crossover ship. And WHAT a ship...
Bowser Koopa/Gnasty Gnorc (Super Mario Bros and Spyro the Dragon, respectively) - Oh, this is a fun ship, not least because this is the one where you can get more gritty with the details.
Okay, this is more a similarities pair than anything else...but where do I begin with them? First, they were both the main bosses of the original trilogies (yes, Mario appeared in Donkey Kong/Mario Bros first, but they weren't trilogies). They both have used transformation spells in a prominent game of their history (Super Mario Bros 3 and the original Spyro). They both have had loyal armies of their species from the word go. They are both pretty much jokes now (shame). They have both been reduced to lackeys at some point (Superstar Saga and A Hero's Tail). They have both fallen victim to Dark collectibles (Bowser in Mario and Luigi: RPG 3!!!, Gnasty in A Hero's Tail). They both have a strange fondness of...um...filth (Bowser makes reference to it in Partners in Time, Gnasty's entire territory is a dump which he habitated after being banished there). And they're also very physical-orientated fighters. You just need to look at them in any game they've been in to see that.
I'm done. Hope no-one's brain has fizzled.
Breeder of many Treeckos, master of none. (Currently breeding Totodile)
Well there's one power couple that I find completely awesome:
Spoiler:- Viewtiful Joe:
Joe x Silvia - Although at the start of the series there was no clear reason why they were attracted to each other you definitely saw some chemistry once Joe rescued her towards the end. And in the second game after being a damsel in distress for so long, she teams up with her boyfriend to kickass by using the powers granted to her from the first game. It even showed how geeky she was compared to Joe during the time she spent with him in the second game. I think they complimented each other well with brains and guts through out the second game. I hope they make a 3rd game which lets us finish from the cliffhanger in 2. A Goof with a heart of gold and a typical girl in every sense. Maybe it's cliched but eh I like it a lot.
Stahn x Irene: Unlike Rutee, Irene clicks well with Stahn. Her calm, patient, and mature personality balances out well with Stahn's hot headed and brash nature. It may have just been a crush on Stahn's part, but I think their relationship could have developed into something more had Irene lived. Personally, I would have liked for him to end up with Irene instead of Rutee. They were more compatible than he and Rutee are.
Stahn x Philia: Though I prefer Stahn with Irene, I would have still been satisfied if he ended up with Philia. She would have been a good match for him, since she is a kind hearted, sensitive, and gentle girl who could balance out his recklessness and impulsiveness. However, it never had a chance of happening, since Stahn never reciprocated Philia's feelings and Philia, being entirely selfless, gave up on trying to win Stahn's heart in order to make Rutee happy.
Tales of Eternia:
Meredy x Keele: I like their relationship. It is a case of opposites-attract in which the two characters' personalities mesh instead of clash. Overall, I feel that they are compatible and enjoy their interaction with each other. The way in which it was written was also well done. Keele and Meredy developed romantic feelings for each other over an extended period of time instead of falling for each other right away. Personally, I hate romantic pairings that are based solely on "love at first sight." "Love at first sight" is just the equivalent of initial infatuation, not love. Romantic relationships such as Keele and Meredy's which develop gradually over a long time period are more genuine, since the characters involved actually get to know one another and bond emotionally before they make any declarations of love. Furthermore, I like how his relationship with Meredy played a big role in Keele's character growth throughout the game.
Farah x Reid: They share great chemistry. Their personalities bounce off of each other well and they appear very comfortable around each other. I also like how they have been friends since early childhood. While it may be clichéd for childhood best friends to fall for one another, I personally like that theme, since characters who are placed in those types of relationships know each other inside and out. Therefore, their love tends to be more pure, since they know one another very well as opposed to knowing little about each other.
Ras/Rassius x Farah: I may favor Farah x Reid, but I do like this ship. Their interaction with each other was interesting and engaging.
Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World:
Alice x Decus: One of my OTPs. Not only are they both incredibly likable characters, but their romance is excellent. Growing up in the Hima orphanage, Alice and Decus were both tormented and abused. They sought comfort in each other's company and became very good friends. When Decus was about to be killed after being framed of murdering an adventurer and stealing his valuables, Alice made a pact with a demon to save his life. She used the demon's power to call upon monsters to destroy the orphanage and kill the people there who were going to murder Decus, including the real culprits behind the adventurer's murder and the theft of his possessions. Decus, grateful to Alice for saving him, pledged to serve and protect her for the remainder of his life. In the time they spent traveling together after the destruction of Hima's orphanage, his dedication to her took a turn for love and Alice herself developed romantic feelings for Decus. Overall, I consider their love for each other pure and genuine. Their personalities are also very compatible and their interaction with each other is enjoyable.
Tales of Legendia:
Stella x Senel: From what was shown of Stella in Senel's flashbacks, it was clear that they shared a genuine and unconditional love. It is a shame that she had to die. Personally, I think Shirley should have died in her place.
Chloe x Senel: The game insinuates at various instances that Chloe is similar to Stella in terms of personality. Like Stella, she is a strong willed, independent young woman with a soft side. Overall, I think she and Senel would make a good couple. They already share a strong friendship and are good partners on the battlefield. However, it will take some time for Senel to completely move on from Stella.
Shino x Haseo: Saving Shino was Haseo's motivation for wanting to acquire power to defeat Tri-Edge. Overall, I feel that his love for her is sincere. Her personality is also a great match with his. She is a calm, level headed, and intelligent person with a kind and compassionate air. Though it may be one-sided on Haseo's part, Shino might still hold some affection for him, as shown in the .hack//Roots anime.
Alkaid x Haseo: I liked the way in which Haseo and Alkaid became friends over the course of .hack//G.U. Volume 2. The way in which they bonded and connected was well written, as was the development of Alkaid's crush on Haseo. The game also insinuates during the Honeysuckle scene and the scene in which Alkaid goes into a coma that she and Shino share similarities (though Alkaid is more impulsive and hot-headed than Shino). If Haseo were to not end up with Shino, I think he would be happy with Alkaid.
Resident Evil Zero:
Billy x Rebecca: I enjoyed their relationship. The way in which Rebecca grew to trust and befriend Billy was well done. Overall, I feel that their personalities clicked well together and they shared great chemistry. I would like for them to come back in a future Resident Evil game. Maybe then they would begin to develop romantic feelings for each other.
Parasite Eve 2:
Aya x Pierce: Pierce is a much better match for Aya than Kyle. He is a kind hearted and sensitive person who would do anything to keep a smile on her face. Though one-sided now, it could develop into something more if Aya were to ever get over Kyle.
Holy crap, Puchi Carat pairings. o__0 I played the GB version and never thought there was really a following. For that game I'd actually like to see By/Peridot...I mean, they did used to be married back as humans. XP
To whoever mentioned it, Bowser/Gnasty Gnorc is win. XD When it comes to Spyro crossovers I like Sheila with Ripper Roo from Crash. XP;;
I have tons more misc. video game stuff....but I'll leave it at that for now.
Ah, half of my fandoms are video games! Well, I'll mention a few ones I absolutely adore...
Melt x Lezard (Star Ocean 3): I swear, the fervent way I ship these two would likely make a newcomer to the game think they were totally important to the plot. No, just two NPCs that you never technically have to see if you skip one of the PCs. This ship is my OTP to end OTPs--there is no ship I love more than these two twelve-year-old humanoid rivals. Both are probably smarter than most of the cast combined, but where Lezard is boarderline insane, Melt is calm and is more than capable to putting him in his place. I have a heap of reasons they're perfect together but I'll spare you. Just know that I obsessively got all of their dialogue throughout the game. Lezard talks about Melt. A lot.
Noel x Leon (Star Ocean 2): Another ship that I rank up there overall. As of the PSP remakes, this ship got real. Or, as real as you care to make it. Their ending together has Leon leave his home in a castle to live out in the woods--which he has spent the whole game complaining about--to live with Noel. Noel is totally okay with this. And they have a scene where Noel gets all nervous and asked to play with Leon's kitty ears. It's so cute I can't even explain it. They're two scientists with feline traits, so they've got that going for them too.
Kafei x Vaati (Legend of Zelda): I talked about this in the LoZ thread so I won't say much here except that I've devoted way too much time to a looooong fic about them. I must be devoted!
Cliff x Skye, Won x Rick, & Gale x Heath (Harvest Moon DS Cute/Friends of Mineral Town/Animal Parade): My three Harvest Moon OTPs. Now, I have OTPs for all the other games in the series too, but these three are the top of the top. CliffxSkye came about when I was thinking about how much they love curry and how if they got together Skye would make them curry dishes for every meal. XD WonxRick...I can't even remember exactly why I started shipping it since that was years ago now, but with as high-strung as they both are it's hilarious. GalexHeath is just too cute. Heath is so curious that I'm sure he'd want to know more about the mysterious wizard, and no way could Gale turn down someone that cute. <3
Kratos x Lloyd & Jade x Dist (Tales of Symphonia & Tales of the Abyss): My OTPs in the two Tales games I've played. For the former, yes. I know the spoilers. I knew them going into the game. No, I don't care. For the latter, I couldn't have been the only one to want to smack Jade a few times, right? ...Right? Well anyway, Saphir's devotion is amazing in a very sad way and, well, at least there's some great fanfiction to give them a happy ending.
This is getting long so I'll stop there. I'll probably post more later if I can.
Bishies: Luppi & Lady Bat|C.Bishie: Clopin|VG.Bishie: Gale|Pokemon: Ariados
Pratty/Sugar, Pratty/Razzy, and Pratty/Sanary from Summon Night: Swordcraft Story. :> The first two are part-canon in the game, and I used to be so obsessed with the last one I saw hints EVERYWHERE when I played it. Now, not so much, but it's still my top one.
And this may ruin childhoods (I don't care), I like and have drawn Timber/Pipsy from Diddy Kong Racing at one point. 8D
Cyrus x Schala: Must be my Chrono Trigger OTP. Despite of the fact that the characters haven't met in the canon and that they are from deferent time spans, I think it would have some chance. You see, they both share similar pasts and fates. Cyrus was the most important knight of the Guardia Kingdom and was he hero of legend; the first warrior to bear the Masamune (since the first PERSON to bear the sword was Melchior, the creator...). Many people looked up at him and even Queen Leene (this is a popular fandom speculation) seemed to have something going on with him. Cyrus dies in the hands of Magus (Janus), King of the Mystics (Fiends); this was because he wanted Glenn (his squire) to run to safety and take care of the kingdom. Because Cyrus sacrificed himself, Glenn manages to survive, of course, having been turned into Frog. This means that Cyrus was a real hero who gave his life away to save his loved ones.
Schala is the princess of the Zeal Kingdom and she was was in charge of powering the Mammon Machine up; a very important fact of the game. Since her mother, Queen Zeal, had been possessed by Lavos (the main antagonist in the game), she had lost all of her sanity and made her people (the Enlighted ones, magic users) think that they were superior to the Earthbound ones (people possessing no magic. They were exiled to live in the Ice-Age lower land). However, Schala (and the Gurus) keep their kind personalities. Schala is threatened by her own mother; the queen says that if she doesn't cooperate, she will kill her and her loved ones. Because she has no other way, Schala is forced to work for her mother. When Crono and the party want to kill Lavos and destroy the Mammon Machine in the Ocean Palace, they fail and Crono is murdered by the beast. Just as the Ocean Palace is about to collapse (it is more than a thousand feet underwater!), Schala sacrifices herself; she uses her last amount of magic to save the remaining of the party and the Prophet (Magus in disguise; who is actually Schala's long lost brother, Janus) and stays in the crumbling palace not to be heard from again until Chrono Cross/an extra ending in the DS version of the game.
I think Cyrus and Schala would make a decent couple because both of them are noble, kind-hearted, brave and, like I said before, they share similar lives.
Frog/GlennxLucca: I will get eaten by the LuMa fans but I'm willing to take the risk .
I like this couple very much because their interaction in the game are so funny, dramatic and unique. When in the Cathedral in the Middle Ages, a Nagaette appears and attacks Lucca, sending her flying. Because she was wounded and Crono was too slow to take out his sword, Lucca's life was in danger. But then, Frog jumps in and kills the Mystic before it can harm Lucca. Lucca scream since she is scared by Frog's appearance (Lucca hates frogs Dx). However, they are forced to work together to rescue Queen Leene and rescue Marle. Once they return to the palace, Frog leaves; says that Crono is an excellent swordsman and that Marle indeed looks a lot like the queen but says NOTHING to Lucca. After he finally leaves, Lucca resents the fact that he didn't say goodbye to her and says "Froggy... Your weren't so bad afterall." (or something like that...).
During the whole game, if you keep them in the same team, their dialougues are pretty connective. And in one ending (if you decide to kill Magus and didn't revive Crono to fight Lavos), the rest of the gang and Gaspar appear in the timegate and Frog is Human again (Glenn). Lucca just stares at him and when she realizes that it was Frog, she begins to fangirl saying "Wow, Glenn! Who would've known you were such a dish?!"
MagusxFlea: Ok purists, I'm going to disrupt the canon here. For me, Flea will be a FEMALE and so, I'm gonna refer to Flea as such.
This is mostly because of fanfiction and I decided to agree with it. When little Janus (Magus) arrives to the Middle Ages via Time Gate, Ozzie kidnaps/takes him in. Janus was the prince of Zeal but knew NOTHING about magic. So, who taught him magic? many speculations say that it was Flea since she is a general in the Mystic army and she is a well experienced magician. Later, when Janus becomes Magus, and the king of the Mystics (Taking over Ozzie's role), Flea is sent to spy on Crono, Frog and the other party member (this one is optional; I mostly go with Lucca because I need fire magic) and disguises herself as a bat. Once she is defeated (in her true form, of course), Flea calls out Magus' name and disappears.
Once the gang return to the Middle Ages (side quest), and if Magus goes too, Flea gets very angry (as well as Ozzie and Slash). After the Mystic Trio is defeated (in my case, I never hurt Flea and let her run away because I'm a crazy fangirl like that...), Ozzie locks himself in an Ice shield, where he can't move a single muscle. There are switches to open the trapdoor underneath the imp, but before the party could guess which switch it is, a yellow cat just walks in, presses a switch of Ozzie's trap door and leaves. Many people like to think that the cat is Flea since she is the only one who can shape-shift (well, Yakra too, but Yakra was killed at the beginning of the game, so he doesn't count).
I mostly see this as one-sided, from Flea's behalf xD
Pokemon Games: Let me say that, since the playable characters have no personalities, I gave them my own, as well as some of my own fangirl changes/points of view.
Spoiler:- Pokemon games pairings:
StevenxMay: Also known as HoennChampionShipping. It is my pokemon OTP.
In pokemon Emerald, once May meets Steven, Steven immediatly asks for her phone number. If May keeps calling him, he says "I've met many trainers in my journey but you are one of a kind" (this is obviously said so the player could feel special but meh, it can count as a moment too!). After beating Norman and crossing that river, Steven meets May again and keeps asking many questions. Then he stops saying that he shouldn't do that and leaves. From then on, Steven keeps stalking her.
The tag battle against Team Magma made me a bigger shipper of this couple. After the battle, Steven INVITES May to his house (lol, pedophile) and keeps giving her many items. He also gives her a rare pokemon (Beldum) and leaves a letter for her. This whole letter thing was more dramatic in Sapphire/Ruby.
When he is a champion, and after beating him, Steven takes May into the Hall of fame but doesn't let inside.
I really love AdultxYoung ships in these games.
GreenxBlue/FRLG rival x FRLG heroine/ConflictShipping (I HATE calling her 'Leaf': I love their silly childish interactions in the game! Plus, I'm one to think that Green has a VERY small crush on her but denies it being the tsundere he is . Also, I think Blue is completly obvlivious to said thing and is annoyed by him whenever he shows up and bullies her; I also like to think that Blue is very immature and childish and whenever Green bullies her, she puffs her cheeks and wants to beat him up. It's all because of the comedy, ladies and gents !
LancexMarina/Lance x Crystal Heroine/CrystalChampionShipping (Once again, I HATE to call her 'Kris' or 'Crystal' >__>): I'm one to think that Marina shares her anime counterpart's obsession for Lance. It's all about the hero-worship. Only, I see game!Marina as a more reserved character (but not secluded. Just level-minded). I don't really have any good arguments for this ship. I just like it!
And I am STILL bitter about Marina being replaced by Kotone…
LucasxDawn: Or FortuneShipping. I just LOVE how Lucas is such a gentleman! And in my head, Dawn is a really aloof and serious character but has nothing against the boy. I ship this seriously hard!
Favorite moments (mind me, please. I’ve only played Diamond version. No Platinum…): The many double battles Dawn has with him. Also the fact that Lucas STILL helps her out even after beating the Elite Four.
CyrusxMars: (BetelgeuseShipping) One sided hero worship, I believe. Mars gets very touchy when Cyrus just vanishes from Mt. Coronet (ok, so I haven’t played Platinum but I have read the spoilers ). I love how tragic this is! It makes my heart very jumpy!
I have more shippings but in this fandom, it will take me forever to post them so maybe, some other time…
Sonic the Hedgehog: I will say this: I’ve only played up to “Shadow the Hedgehog”, so characters like Blaze, Jet, etc. are completely RARE to me.
Spoiler:- Sonic Pairings:
ShadowxRouge: Ever since I began to play SA2B, I just knew I was gonna love this pairing. And I still do! The many moments, the hints- Aaah! I’m getting fangirly again. Maybe what I love the most, is their interaction. When they first met, Rouge is just so flirty and Shadow is all like “hmph! Troublesome woman.” And ignores him. Then, Rouge gets locked in the island and Shadow just goes and rescues her. Despite of Shadow saying that he only went there to get the Chaos Emerald, it was really because he remembered his promise to Maria (about keeping every living thing safe). Of course, since it is SHADOW, he wouldn’t admit that to anyone, especially not Rouge. The bat knows something is going on and proceeds to ask him but Eggman interrupts (DAMN YOU EGGMAN!).
And the ending of the game… Omg, so sad! Shadow supposedly dies (he doesn’t of course.) and Sonic comes back with Shadow’s power ring. Rouge is the first one to ask about Shadow and Sonic immediately gives her the ring. Then, when Knuckles asks Rouge if she’s going back to her treasure-hunting, she says that she has something better to do (while looking down at earth; where Shadow fell.)
There are even MORE hints in the future games; each more shippy than the last one. But I won’t go on everything because of the lack of time I have…
KnucklesxTikal: Because Tikal is the ONLY person whom Knuckles doesn’t treat like garbage.
Also: Knuckles is very protective towards the Master Emerald. Tikal is, er, “locked inside” the emerald. Therefore, Knuckles is protective of Tikal! So there! Simple analogies, people!
Rune Factory #1
Spoiler:- Rune Factory pairings:
RagunaxBianca: well, I married Bianca in the game. .. ehehe, I’m so biased…
I love their interactions! At first, Bianca, being the little spoiled princess she is, treats Raguna like a lowlife. But once he just starts visiting her EVERY DAY, she starts to warm up to him, and even says that she enjoys his company (also, Raguna is the only real friend she ever had). Then (once the house is upgraded), Bianca asks Raguna why he cares for her and he says because she looked so lonely and he wanted to be her friend. Then he proposes and they get married. XD
IvanxRaguna: its’s incest I tell you! INCEST! Which I love xDDD. I just love how Ivan is so friggin fluffly and lovable towards Raguna. Full of fluff. Fluff is good. Ohohohoho~
IvanxBianca: Lol, crack ahoy! Okay, so in the canon, they are never seen interacting with each other because Bianca is forever locked in her house and Ivan only comes one day a week… But I kinda like to think about this couple. Ivan’s a wondering peddler and Bianca is a spoiled princess. If they ever got married, Bianca would be forced to travel back and forth, from one place to another, she would be forced to WORK, which I find very amusing. Ivan would not spoil her. He would still be very chivalrous towards her but would still force her to work and give her a taste of what life is . It amuses me greatly.
LaraxFelicity: well, Lara IS a nurse and Felicity is very sick. Both of them are real sweethearts and, just like IvanxRaguna, it would include so much fluff and sweetness. I love it!
I promise I would post more couples once I have time! Animal Crossing is next
Well, there are quite a few video game ships I'm on, but were I to list them all, there would be no end to it...
Anyway, here go some of my absolute favourites...
Netto (Lan) x Meiru (Mayl) - MegaMan Battle Network: My absolute favourite. I can't ship these two with anyone else. I love their moments together, how Netto always goes the extra mile to make Meiru happy (even when he's oblivious to love), and how Meiru is so patient with him. It just feels natural that these two develop from childhood friend to sweethearts, and I have to give my kudos to Capcom for such a well-handled romance.
Phoenix x Maya - Ace Attorney series: Don't ask. I know it's very improbable, but... heh, dunno, there is just this chemistry going on between the two of them... Of course, it can easily be construed as a brother-sister relationship but, well, I think it could develop into something more. Ignore the crappy Apollo Justice and give it a few more years...
Lloyd x Colette - Tales of Symphonia: Best. Tales. Pairing. Ever. PERIOD. Excellent background, buildup, chemistry, and above all incredibly sweet and heartwarming. I know Symphonia has relationship values, but, really... Colette is the only one I can ship Lloyd with.
Asbel x Sophie - Tales of Graces: There was a lot more development between these two, and their relationship would have benefitted the both of them... but nooo, Namco just had to screw up and saddle Asbel with the annoying Cheria, the worst Tales female character since the times of Shirley. Bah. Really, Asbel and Sophie just feels more natural and has a lot more possibilities for development.
Hwang x Seung Mi-Na - Soul series: Darn, these two HAD something between them in Soul Calibur, why did Namco just drop it all like that? Despite their age gap, I think it would have worked.
Nowe x Manah - Drakengard 2: Romance? In MY Drakengard? Why, YES! I liked how - among other things - their budding romance lightened up the apocalyptic mood of the game, and it was great that, in the end (I'm talking the third ending here, the others are all bittersweet) it all worked out for the best (Nowe and Manah holding hands in the field... <3). These two brought out the best in each other - Manah opened the naive Nowe's eyes to the world and gave him a reason to fight, while Nowe's love was a great support in Manah's redemption story.
There are a lot more, but these are my absolute favourites.
