5. Evil Queen (Once Upon A Time) and Negan (The Walking Dead)

Imagine The Joker and Harley Quinn…but with actual strategy. Negan is crazy, and The Evil Queen is crazier. She’s THE Queen, and God help anyone who disrespects the Queen. Disclaimer: this pairing is strictly for the Evil Queen. Regina is officially her own person, and her relationship with Robin Hood is well earned. Assuming Negan managed to keep his heart inside his chest, he would make a deadly force to rule alongside the Evil Queen. Negan is a King in his own right, leading the Saviors. Admittedly, the Evil Queen might have some issues with the group’s name.

Negan controls his followers through power, intimidation, and punishment, most often leaving viewers in tears. On the contrary, you can almost hear the Evil Queen’s laughter and praises in the background. There’s no denying Negan’s looks – come ON Jeffrey Dean Morgan – and compared to Evil Queen’s current beau Rumplestiltskin, well, there’s no contest.

The fundamental difference between the two comes when people fight back. Where the Evil Queen gets angry and vindictive, Negan loves the challenge of resistance. Odds are, if Negan had been the Evil Queen’s huntsman, Emma and Snow White would have had very different fates. Plus, if Lucille was infused with dark magic…yikes.
