These are the pairings from Kingdom Hearts that I will ship, that I think are cute, that I enjoy shipping, or that I just tolerate. These are literally every single possible pairing I enjoy in KH.
Bolded are OTP for the section. (Or, if under not-ship list, the most loathed ship.)
Italics are special pairings that also deserve recognition. (If under not-ship, recognition for strongly disliked.)

- TerrAqua (Terra/Aqua) - Aqua’s side
- RokuNo (Roxas/Reno)
- AkuRokuNo (Axel/Roxas/Reno) - sharing Roxas
- AkuNam - Axel/Naminé - I think their relationship is extremely interesting. I love how he’s somewhat protective over her. I enjoy the sort of big brother/little sister relationship they have.
- AkuSora - Axel/Sora - I have mixed feelings about Axel and Sora. I loved their relationship in Chain of Memories. I think Axel was drawn to Sora because he was Roxas’s Somebody but their friendship developed because Sora was what Roxas wasn’t. Vivacious, very full of life and fervor, where Roxas was reserved and distanced. Sora fascinates him because he is Roxas, yet he’s a part Axel rarely gets to see. He cares for Sora, but it’s more friendly. Brother-like, sort of like with Naminé.
- XigDem - Xigbar/Demyx - They have an adorable friendship. I love listening to them in Days.
- MarLarx - Marluxia/Larxene - There is a special place for Larxene and Marluxia’s relationship in my heart. I have no doubt that they involved with one another somehow, but I don’t think emotions tied into it. I love the way they feed off of one another.
- AkuLarx - Axel/Larxene - Same with Axel and Larxene. They could easily be close friends in an AU. Their sarcastic and somewhat snarky and bitter personas catch easily with one another. I enjoy their friendship.
- HayRox - Hayner/Roxas - I love their friendship. Hayner’s sort of an asshole, but he balances out Roxas’s quieter, more-meticulous nature. With Axel and Seifer out of the picture, I think Hayner and Roxas would end up together.
Ships I don’t ship;
- AkuDem - Axel/Demyx - Do not and will not ever ship this. Sorry.
- AkuZeku - Axel/Zexion - Their friendship is intriguing, but Axel was dispassionate enough about him to have him killed. I don’t see any sort of possibility for this ship.
- RokuNam - Roxas/Naminé - Sorry, but no. Too cliché to me and also Naminé screwed Roxas over majorly in KH2. If she cares for anyone, it’s Sora, not Roxas; I don’t think she ever liked Roxas at all.
- AkuShi or AkuRokuShi - I just… I don’t see it. With the way Axel treats Xion in Days, and the tension between them… My theory is that either Xion wants Axel and Axel wants Roxas, or Xion and Axel both want Roxas. But I can’t ship all of them together - it’s either Roxas/Axel or Roxas/Xion for me.
- AkuLarx - Axel/Larxene - Love them as bros, but with the ‘hands-off’ way he treated her in Castle Oblivion, I don’t see much room for the ship to grow.
- AkuVen or LeaVen - Lea/Ventus - I mainly dislike this ship because people make AkuRoku a manifestation of it. Roxas isn’t Ventus, and Axel does not choose Roxas for a best friend because of Ventus. If anything, he would have chosen someone who looked like Isa, seeing as ISA was his best friend, not Ventus. They were hardly friends.
- Basically all of the Axel ships. :S
