10+ cringe VALORANT duo names

E-daters, am I right?

Whether you and your partner flocked to VALORANT as a staple of your long-distance relationship or met in the game itself, you’ve probably given some thought to the possibility of having matching names.

An influx of these matching gamer tags usually pops up around Valentine’s Day. So, here are some of the most fun but also cringy duo names we’ve seen yet.

Every year around Valentine’s Day, you’ll more than likely see a frustrated VALORANT player head to social media to complain about a recent duo they came across named “I miss her” and “I miss him.” This naming combination is common and has transcended into a known meme among gaming communities.

Since then, the VALORANT subreddit has been flooded with posts from other players who have spotted countless other duo names in the wild. Piling on with their own love-filled but otherwise cringeworthy findings, we can now report an extensive list of the best (or worst) duo names.

  • Her Jett + His Sage
  • Her Mod + His Kitten
  • Her Dog + His Treat
  • Her Predator + His Prey
  • Her Meatballs + His Spaghetti
  • Her Toaster + His Bathtub
  • Her Charger + His Wall Socket
  • His Lilypad + Her Frog
  • Her Vent + His Imposter
  • Queen Of Hell + King of Hell
  • His Loss + Her Profit
  • Heartthrob + Heartbreaker
  • Lady + The Tramp
  • Sugar + Spice
  • Trash + TrashCan
  • Joker + Poker

Many of the reported duo names not listed here were sexual, which is surprising since “vulgar” words are not allowed in VALORANT, according to Riot Games Support. This hasn’t stopped duos from using an abundance of innuendos. Still, others were offensive in other ways, referencing the 9/11 attack or the Holocaust.

One reported five-stack of players was Never, Gonna, Give, You, and Up. Some players found these names super cringe and repetitive. “99 percent of them are 13-year-old kids,” one player commented. “They still think they are edgy and funny by copy-pasting something others have done a million times.” One player even said he has preconceived notions about being put on a team with someone named “His Sage.”

“I suggest that if there is a Sage and a Jett with said username, mentally prepare yourself not to get a heal for the whole game,” they commented. Others said the names are ironic and making fun of gamer couples or couples who haven’t met in person.

No matter the reason behind the abundance of goofy duo names, it doesn’t look like they are slowing down any time soon. If you have a friend or partner, it may be time to come up with something clever before your next VALORANT match. Remember, you can only change your name once every 30 days, so don’t break up before then!


There you have it! You have now witnessed some of the cringiest VALORANT duo names. Enjoy!
