Though a fanon pairing in existence for over a decade, on October 24th, 2015, SouthParkStudios.com acknowledged Creek's existence and requested Creek fanart from South Park fans. The episode "Tweek x Craig" possibly canonized the ship.
Craig and Tweek's first 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 in some later episodes, as Tweek is occasionally seen with Craig and Those Guys in episodes such as "How to Eat With Your Butt" or "South Park is Gay!", primarily during the fifth through seventh seasons, before Jimmy became the more common fourth member of the group. During the seventeenth season, these interactions suddenly resumed - in "Informative Murder Porn", Craig, Tweek and Jimmy came together to confront Stan, Kyle and Kenny, and in "Black Friday", they both pick the PlayStation 4 and side with each other. This has caused the pairing, despite it's original appeal as a love-hate relationship, like Kyman, to also attract those who prefer friendly relationships, such as Style shippers.
Some fans nonetheless believe there are may be lingering antagonism between them - they fought in both "Tweek vs. Craig" and the later "Tweek x Craig", and while they have appeared in the background, they have never interacted in detail in etween these episodes. However, Tweek's limited role in recent seasons makes it very difficult to ascertain his exact relationships with other characters in the series.
HintsTweek 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.
This ship was considered a fanon crack pairing until the Season 19 episode "Tweek x Craig", where the school's new Asian female students begin drawing 'yaoi' artwork of Tweek and Craig together, and they are showcased in the school and near Whole Foods. Though initially confused and disgusted by the assumption, Tweek and Craig eventually create a pretend relationship and a fake 'break-up' in order to stop the production of the pictures, only for Tweek to accidentally humiliate Craig by making him out to be a cheater, causing the school to shun the latter. The two eventually get back together and reconcile when they realize how upset the town is over their "break-up".The episode does not depict Craig and Tweek with Jimmy, Clyde, Token or other members of the gang, and their relationship between "Tweek vs. Craig" and "Tweek x Craig" is left to fandom interpretation, as they are only seen together reacting to the news of their 'relationship' and what it means. The two are both depicted both getting along and disagreeing at different points.
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 somehow 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 three 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 gained popularity. However, dominant Craig still remains the most popular version, as is reflected in the episode "Tweek x Craig".
The couple was the most popular Crack Pairing until it's subsequent canonization and the most popular pairing in the fandom 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. This now makes it the most popular Canon Pairing in the fandom (though it's canonicity is ambiguous).
