List Rules Vote up those pairs who make a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts

Ranker Video The Best Duos of All Time

The greatest duos of all time can exist independently of each other, but totally shouldn't. These are combinations and famous duos whose whole value is greater than the sum of their parts. For instance, you can have cheese (and it will be glorious) and you can separately have ham (and it will be succulent), but put them together and boom: ham and cheese and delicious. These famous male and female partners in history, delicious food pairings, famous movie duos, and famous TV duos need each other like peanut butter needs jelly. You might even say the following pairs are dynamic duos who should never be separated. 

Some of the best fictional and celebrity couples that ever were find themselves among the best duos ever, but it's not just people that can make this list of the best pairings ever. Things like popcorn & movies, baseball & peanuts, and even Christmas & snow are all better together. Among some of the best sports duos, the top TV couples, and the greatest food pairings are the top duos of all time, and they've been compiled here in this list of the great duos for you to vote on. While fictional characters dominate the list, the tastiest food combinations are also competing for the top spot.  

Who are the top duos of all time? Many of the answers to this question can be found here on this popular duos list, featuring the best pairings ever. If your favorite combination/duo isn't listed, make sure to add it. (Then go vote for the best trios!)
