Hellboy and Hellboy II Movieverse

Although the main canon pairing of Hellboy/Liz Sherman is popular, the slash pairing of Hellboy/John Myers is nearly as popular. Other pairings include: Nuala/Abe Sapien, John Myers/Nuada, Hellboy/Abe Sapien, Abe Sapien/Liz Sherman, John Myers/Abe Sapien and Nuada/Nuala. Although hinted in the first film, the pairing Liz Sherman/John Myers never quite took off. Nuada is sometimes paired with Loki in crossovers with the MCU.
