Background Information

Cast Ship: Zenton

Runther (R/ocky and G/unther) is the love pairing between Rocky Blue and Gunther Hessenheffer. The supporters being known as the "RuntheRockerZ".

In Shake It Up, Gunther and Rocky are currently frenemies, although many fans see a great potential in this shipping.

In lots of Shake It Up episodes, such as Model It Up, Break It Up, Auction It Up, Shake It Up: Made in Japan, Vatalihootsit It Up and Hot Mess It Up, they are seen as being friends. For example, Gunther giving his compliment to Rocky saying she is the smartest girl at their school and Rocky happily accepting the compliment in Vatalihootsit It Up showing that they can be friendly at times. In the show, there are also many signs of Rocky and Gunther caring for each other. In Break It Up for example, Rocky injuring her foot and Gunther being the first to take action to help her. Gunther has also been seen comforting Rocky, as in trying to tell her everything would be alright. Also, In Shake It Up: Made In Japan, Gunther called Rocky (as well as Cece), for help after Tinka has been arrested, she quickly came and comforted Gunther and tried her best to help him get Tinka back. This love/hate relationship is supported by most of the DeCe, Tynka and Deucina shippers, and multi-shipped by most of the Rogan shippers.

Throughout the show, Rocky and Gunther show few signs of affection. They also tend to stand close to each other at times. It is possible that they might hold feelings for each other. The RuntheRockerZ have been showing their support to this couple to the Shake It Up writers, and we know they clearly are aware of the Runther fanbase. Therefore, it is possible that they may consider making it happen.

They are portrayed by Zendaya and Kenton Duty

Rival Pairings

Rocky's Opinion of Gunther

Rocky thinks that Gunther dresses and acts weird (Hot Mess It Up), but she is still nice to him. She is the one who usually tells CeCe to do something nice to/for Gunther and Tinka. She also likes that Gunther (and Tinka) thinks of her as the "boss" of the duo, not CeCe. Rocky was willing to give up Katy Perry tickets to go
Runther mi viene da piangere2
to celebrate a special holiday with Gunther (And Tinka) and that shows she wants to be friendly to him. (Vatalihootsit It Up). CeCe never invited Gunther to her birthday party and she asked Rocky to tell Gunther his inventation for lost in the mail, but instead of doing what CeCe said, Rocky invited Gunther anyways hinting that she didn't want him left out. (Surprise It Up) In Auction It Up, Rocky thought Gunther (And Tinka) were nice, caring, and good friends. Also In Made In Japan, Rocky recieves Gunthers text for help to get Tinka, and she rushes to him. She is also seen trying to comfort Gunther by putting her hand on his shoulder, which shows that she really cares for Gunther and doesn't like seeing him upset.

Gunther's Opinion of Rocky

Despite his apparently ego-centric personality, Gunther thinks Rocky is the smartest girl in t
Rocky gunther runther shake it up loove4
heir school (Vatalihootsit It Up). He thinks, with Tinka, Rocky is the real "boss" of the duo, while CeCe is her "little red sidekick" (Vatalihootsit It Up). Also, Gunther thinks Rocky is a sort of "witch" because she guessed the Mystery Guest really quick. (Kick It Up). Gunther seems to enjoy teasing Rocky, but he also is friendly to her at times. In Break It Up when everybody heard Rocky yell in pain from stepping on a broken bottle, Gunther was the first to take action by getting a towel to rest her feet on. He also was trying to comfort her while she was hurt. This shows that he cares for Rocky. In Shake It Up Made In Japan, Gunther texts Rocky asking her to meet him somewhere because Tinka has been arrested. This hints that Gunther can trust Rocky to help him.
