Unlikely Friendships that Should Have Been

We all know (and love) the many friendships that are exhibited within a variety of shows: Han and Chewy, Frodo and Sam, Mega Man and Rocket, Blanka and your face, you get the idea. But sometimes those friendships are just not enough and we need to reach outside their respective genres for the friendship matches made in heaven. Here are our top 10:

  1. Calvin & Chewbacca

“You know, Chewy, some days even my lucky Millenium Falcon underpants don’t help.”

  1. Hermione Granger & Twilight Sparkle

They’ll form a group called S.B.E.W. (Society for the Bookworms of Equestria and the World).

  1. Edward Elric & Gimli

Sometimes dynamite comes in small packages and can explode at anytime, especially if you mention anything about being short.

  1. Tony Stark & Tali-Zorah

“Testing rocket boots, Day 11, Test 37, Configuration 2.0. For lack of a better option, Tali is still on fire safety.”

  1. Arya Stark & Toph Beifong

We just want to see these two take on an army together.

  1. Master Chief (John-117) & John the Baptist

“But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, one who wears the spartan helmet of salvation and wields the energy sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”

  1. Sephiroth and Scar

Scar would get some much needed perspective—“You wanna be king of a rock? Well I wanna destroy the world with a giant meteor”—and Sephiroth can stop being jealous that he doesn’t have a pet lion like the other side.

  1. Mal Reynolds & Doctor Horrible

So Doctor Horrible can’t be friends with Captain Hammer, but he can darn sure be friends with Captain Tightpants!

  1. Caprica Six & Seven of Nine

Separated from the hive collective with a strong desire to gain some form of humanity. It’s kind of true for both. Although Seven of Nine definitely has better taste in men.

  1. Jayne Cobb & John Casey

“Do you know what the chain of command is? It’s the chain I go and get to beat you with until you buy this washing machine.”

Certainly we missed a bunch. Which unlikely friendships would you recommend?
