Syaoran/Sakura is the romantical ship for Syaoran Li and Kinomoto Sakura from CLAMP's work Card Captor Sakura. The ship is canon in both Manga and Anime versions of the series, and alternate versions of the characters even appeared in other CLAMP works, like Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle and xxxHolic.

Canon

Sakura and Syaoran start the series as rivals, competing to collect the most Clow Cards and eventually become their master, as well as having an unrequited crush on the same person. As the series progresses, they get closer to each other and eventually fall in love. The ship is even referenced in other CLAMP titles as canon.

Fandom

Sakura/Syaoran is a popular ship not only in the Cardcaptor Sakura fandom but among CLAMP works in general. As of September of 2021, it's the most popular ship on AO3 and is probably the most relevant rival to the Tomoyo/Sakura femslash pairing.

Sakura and Syaoran: are literally soulmates, have confessed their love towards one another, have promised to be together forever, have literally already been on a date
Also Sakura and Syaoran: too nervous to refer to one another as their boyfriend/girlfriend [1]
