- “So you like cats?”
- — Sam when he first meets T'Challa.
Captain America: Civil War
After getting captured by the United Nations, T'Challa, Steve and Sam are in a car. After some awkward silence, Sam asks if T'Challa likes Cats. Steve is about to stop him but Sam is confused by the guy who suddenly appears wearing a cat suit, since that's gotta raise some questions. T'Challa seems bemused by Sam's question, given the situation they're in.
Avengers: Infinity War
Sam, along with the other Avengers, travels to Wakanda by the generosity of King T'Challa, to get help for Vision. They fight side by side against Thanos's creatures and both are decimated by the snap of the Infinity Stone gauntlet.
A rare pair in fandom, the two were not expected to be shipped by most people. Those that do started to ship it after their interaction in Civil War. Specifically, Sam questioning T'Challa's Black Panther suit.
Their interaction spanned several possible comedic interactions. Mostly involving the two making fun of the other's animal theme. There's also fan art comparing the two to birds and cat's. Some also believe that Sam would get along with T'Challa's younger sister Shuri, and would team up in finding way to troll T'Challa.
On AO3, T'Chalcon is the ninth most written ship for T'Challa, and the eighth most written for Sam. It is also the twenty fourth most written ship in the Black Panther tag.
