- See also: Fanfiction involving Creek
Craig and Tweek's first (and to date, only significant) interaction in the series was in "Tweek vs. Craig", where the boys, on account of a bet they had made, claimed to Tweek and Craig that each had insulted the other, and convinced them to fight. When it turned out neither of them knew how to fight, they had them trained for it. Craig was trained by Cartman, in Sumo wrestling and Tweek by Stan and Kyle, in boxing. After the fight, both boys were hospitalized and seemed to be getting along fairly well, but the kids fooled them into fighting again soon after.Despite their feud, the two seem to be friends again, as Tweek is occasionally seen with Craig's gang in episodes such as "How to Eat With Your Butt" or "South Park is Gay!". They are also often shown in the background together like Kevin. This has caused the pairing, despite it's original appeal as a love-hate relationship, to also attract those who prefer friendly relationships. Tweek is the fourth friend in Craig's group most often, subsquently beating Jimmy and Jason in sightings. Since Clyde and Token are best friends, many fans see Tweek and Craig as being best friends as well. Tweek and Craig can be seen standing side by side in numerous episodes including "Ginger Kids", where they are trapped in a cage together, and in "The Wacky Molestation Adventure", where they are on the same side of the town. Tweek and Craig can also be seen sitting together at school assemblies. In "Marjorine", they hide next to each other, behind the bushes. In "You're Getting Old", they sit near one another, at Stan's birthday table.
In "How To Eat With Your Butt", they appear in the background, shoving each other and fighting over a spot at Kenny's window, in spite of the fact that they could have easily pushed one of the other kids away. Fans believe that the scene proved they were really good friends and comfortable in each other's presence, due to the fact that Tweek chose to fit in next to Craig, before Craig backed away and went behind Tweek, letting him occupy the front spot. In "Make Love, Not Warcraft", Craig's gang plays a game outside Stan's house, and, while Clyde tries to snatch Tweek's ball, he passes it to Craig, who appears to be on the same team as Tweek.
Recently, in "Informative Murder Porn", Craig and Tweek (and Jimmy) came together to confront Stan, Kyle and Kenny, suggesting a group formation is intact. When Tweek and Craig began to individually talk, they looked at eachother, with concerned expressions, showing they listened and understood.
This implies that they are very close, or, at the least, friends, though some fans still believe there has been some sort of antagonism between them, since they fought in "Tweek vs. Craig". However, Tweek's limited role in recent seasons make it difficult to ascertain his relationships with other characters.
As far as the pairing goes, Craig tends to be portrayed as the dominant one in the Creek relationship due to the fact that he seems to be described as manlier, physical and personality likewise, generally being tougher and more down-to-earth than Tweek, who is emotional and fearful. The fact that Craig is implied to be taller and older also contributes to this.
However, lately, more and more occurrences of Tweek being dominant have been happening in fanart and fanfiction. This may be due to where Craig was announced 3 pounds skinnier than Tweek in "Tweek vs Craig", thus making him the "weaker" one due to the stereotype that the submissive ones are normally skinnier and smaller. The pairing is commonly referred to as Twig, and has been gaining popularity in recent months. However, dominant Craig still remains the most popular.
The couple is the most popular Crack Pairing and the most popular pairing after Kyman and Style with a rather large amount of fanart and fanfiction dedicated to it. On FanFiction.Net, most stories are dedicated to Style, followed by Creek, then Kyman.
