6) Sack Boy (LittleBigPlanet) & Pikachu (Pokémon)

Pikachu could be a girl, right? Couples don’t get more adorable than this. Should Pika let loose a stray lightning bolt, Sack Boy has plenty of practice jumping over obstacles.

7) Altaïr (Assassin’s Creed) & Elika (Prince of Persia)

Both hail from ancient periods in history and presumably we’d need a time machine (or maybe an Animus) to get these two in the same room. Even though assassins usually work alone, we think Altaïr would make an exception with Elika, one of the most likable game sidekicks ever.

8) Nemesis (Resident Evil: Nemesis) & Sheeva (Mortal Kombat 3)

Vocabulary isn’t either of these villains’ forté (he said: STARRRRRRZ!; she said: YEEEEEEAAHHH!). It goes without saying that any relationship between these brutes would be purely physical.

9) Daxter (Jax and Daxter) & Sunny Funny (Parappa the Rapper)

Daxter’s lame wisecracks rub most people the wrong way. Sunny Funny, a talking flower with a hearty sense of humor (her main squeeze is a rapping Dog after all), might actually enjoy his company.

10) Cortana (Halo) & EDI (Mass Effect 2)

The romantic options are limited for these two artificial intelligences, no matter how much they flirt with Master Chief and Commander Shepard. Their gift of gab makes them kindred spirits. They’re both ladies but we think they were made for each other.
