10 Couples in Naruto Who Can Not Be Together

Couples in Naruto

Maybe it’s because their hearts are for each other or they can’t be together, but all of the couples in Naruto below look really good together.

Fan-favorite couples like Naruto & Hinata and Sasuke & Sakura are clear and predictable from the start. Couples like Choji and Karui have created a shock for fans.

However, there are also ninja pairs that have the ability to come together but not be a pair. Maybe it’s because their hearts are for each other or they can’t be together, but all of the couples in Naruto below look really good together.

Let’s explore these couples with Naruto Universe Blog!

Karin and Suigetsu

Karin and Suigetsu have always had an interesting relationship thanks to Taka’s passion. On the surface, Karin looks like she has a crush on her teammate Sasuke and hates Suigetsu.

Their constant bickering can be interpreted in a more romantic way. Contrary to Sasuke, who “butters” Karin and her love, Suigetsu never fails to attract Karin with friendly teasing. And after Sasuke goes to Sakura, it would be great if Karin goes to Suigetsu.

Kakashi and Rin

Although love seemed to be absent during Kakashi’s time leading Team 7, many of his teammates admired him and considered him a talented young ninja. Rin is one of them.

Despite Rin’s feelings, Kakashi still prioritized the mission above all else. Rin’s death was a wake-up call to Kakashi. He could have protected and cared for Rin more all this time.

If Rin hadn’t died, she and Kakashi would have gone beyond the usual comradeship.

Ino and Shikamaru

At the end of the Naruto series, Ino finds love with Sai while Shikamaru marries Temari. Although it is not controversial, but it would be very suitable if the two of the Ino-Shika-Cho trio became a couple.

In addition to being from the same clans with a long history, Ino and Shikamaru always work well together on the battlefield.

Shikamaru uses his genius to devise creative battle strategies and Ino specializes in mind-switching techniques. In addition, Ino’s strong personality will control Shikamaru’s laziness.

Neji and Tenten

By the end of Naruto, most of the ninja from Konoha 11 were married and had children. Except for some people like Tenten who never found interest in love and Neji died during the Fourth Shinobi War.

If Neji hadn’t died, things would have gone in a different direction. Like most of his teammates from Konoha 11, Neji will probably want a family of his own and Tenten is one of Neji’s closest ninjas.

Of course, the two would have become one of the couples in Naruto if Neji hadn’t died.

Konan and Nagato

Even though Akatsuki is the main antagonist of the series, the members of Akatsuki still deserve some love. Konan and Nagato are definitely one of them.

Since the Second Shinobi War, Konan and Nagato have always been together. They are orphans and friends trying to survive together.

After being trained and guided by Jiraiya, Konan and Nagato formed Akatsuki along with Yahiko to bring peace to the ninja world. Until death came to them, Nagato and Konan continued to fight for their shared dream of peace.

Tenten and Lee

If Tenten can’t find love with her lost comrade Neji, she can at least find another teammate – Rock Lee. Rock Lee has one child, Metal Lee.

There’s probably a good reason why Metal Lee’s mother’s identity is kept secret, and almost all of the speculation points to Tenten. But instead of giving Tenten and Lee a romance and support, Metal Lee had an unnamed mother.

Karin and Sasuke

Sasuke was once the guy every girl dreamed of dating. However, after he joined forces with Orochimaru and tried to destroy Konohagakure, not many people left him for a chance even if he became a hero in the Fourth Shinobi War. The only two kunoichi still willing to marry him are Sakura and Karin.

If Sakura disappears, then Karin – Sasuke’s comrade Taka will be the one the Uchiha cares about the most. Always obsessed with Sasuke’s figure, Karin became a descendant of the Uzumaki clan like Naruto. That means she and Sasuke will have a child with two Uchiha and Uzumaki bloodlines.

Anko and Orochimaru

In the past, Orochimaru has undeniably done some pretty gruesome things like assassinating the Third Hokage and performing unethical science experiments on other ninjas.

By the end of the series, however, Orochimaru found some redemption by siding with Sasuke and stopping his cruelty.

It’s good that the character who was once the villain settles down and finds love. A suitable candidate for Orochimaru is Anko, with whom he has shared a lot about his past.

As snake ninjas, the two can learn from each other’s troubled pasts and forge a future together.

Jiraiya and Tsunade

Although Jiraiya has bad habits with a tendency to spoil and Tsunade has found the love of her life, there is no denying that there is a very close bond between the two legendary ninjas. However, the two ended before being able to get together.

After Dan’s death, Tsunade abandoned both her village and her ninja life. Thanks to Jiraiya and Naruto, Tsunade finally returned to become Hokage and protect the village. Perhaps they would have been together if Jiraiya hadn’t died at Pain’s hand.

Sakura and Lee

Throughout the series, there have been many instances of unrequited love such as Jiraiya’s love for Tsunade and Naruto’s love for Sakura. One of them is Lee’s unrequited love for Sakura.

Admittedly, Lee’s initial infatuation didn’t matter much as Sakura didn’t even know who he was when she first asked her out before the Chunin exams.

However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that Lee repeatedly proves to Sakura that he will always protect and take care of her no matter what.
