* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': The Oliver/Felicity fans have became ''infamous'' for this, as well as other bad habits (such as harassing Stephen Amell and other members of the cast and crew on their Facebook pages to demand Oliver hooks up with Felicity), primarily against Laurel and Sara. Laurel is a pretty big BaseBreaker who borders on being TheScrappy, so a lot of the bashing is, to some extent justified, but a lot of the demand for Sara's head or the declaration that Sara is a either a CreatorsPet or a SpotlightStealingSquad tends to come from resentment from fans of Felicity (and to a lesser extent, from Laurel defenders). While it should be noted that not ''all'' Felicity/Oliver fans [[VocalMinority act this way]], [[FanPreferredCouple there's a comparatively large number of bad ones thanks to how popular the ship is.]]

* [[StalkerWithACrush Olive Snook]] in ''PushingDaisies'' is an odd, inverted meta-instance of the trope. She considers Ned and herself the OneTruePairing and plots and connives against Chuck, whose arrival (and whose place in Ned's heart) intrudes on her romantic fantasy of ending up happy with Ned. However, early on, she comes to realise that her conniving would cause pain to others and drops her plans. She then becomes a good friend to Chuck while still having feelings for Ned; everyone knows about this, and the three of them act in a mature and rational way throughout the series, which is an uncommon occurrence... not that it stops the [[PortmanteauCoupleName Nolive]] shippers who seem to be somewhat upset that Lee Pace isn't having hot, steamy sex with [[Theatre/{{Wicked}} Galinda]].

* The official couple of ''{{Garo}}'' is Kouga/Kaoru, which leads to dislike of both for different reasons. On one side, Kouga gets some hate from those who would rather pair Kaoru with Leo or Rei, on account of [[spoiler:his initially using her as bait for Horrors, not telling her that she was going to die, and then in the second series not telling her that ''he'' was going to die.]] On the other, Kaoru gets bashing for being weak/inadequate/supposedly not good enough to be the hero's love interest, especially since [[{{Badass}} Jabi]] had feelings for him as well.

** Due to the amount of FoeYay in the series, there is a good portion of the fandom that would love to see The Doctor end up with TheMaster. Never mind the fact that The Master really enjoys making The Doctor suffer as much as possible and them being arch-enemies. The new series hasn't helped by, among other things, [[spoiler: introducing a '''female''' Master (Missy) in Series 8 who seems to have a one-sided crush on the Doctor, though in Series 9 she claims it's the continuation of a strange friendship that humans cannot understand rather than romantic love]].

* Riley of ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' catches an inordinate amount of hate from the fandom, and she's only been around for a few episodes. Her crime? Being a ''possible'' future love interest for John who ''may'' get in the way of the popular Cameron/John ship.

* The girls who have been teased romantically with either Stiles or Derek of ''Series/TeenWolf'' have received resentment from the more vocal Sterek (Stiles/Derek) shippers. These include Lydia (Stiles' intense crush), Jennifer (who slept with Derek), and Heather and Caitlin (who kissed Stiles). The latest in this list are Malia, who was very unpopular with both Sterek and Stydia (Stiles/Lydia) shippers after she made out/possibly slept with (it's ambiguous) Stiles and became his girlfriend, and Braeden, who entered into a relationship with Derek. After Derek left at the end of Season 4, hatred for Braeden largely cooled down, but the ShipToShipCombat between Stydia and Stalia (Stiles/Malia) fans continues unabated. The lone man singled out for DieForOurShip treatment is Deputy Parrish, who has a supernatural connection with Lydia, and is her first serious potential love interest since Season 3. Stydia shippers regularly turn him into RonTheDeathEater, which is especially hilarious given that Parrish is quite literally the equivalent of a BigFriendlyDog.

* Fan reaction towards Lavinia Swire and Sir Richard Carlisle was mixed in the second series of ''DowntonAbbey''. Despite Carlisle being the one of more questionable morals, Lavinia is the one that received the most dislike and in the end had to [[spoiler: die from Spanish Flu]] for the good of the Mary/Matthew ship. What made it most unbearable for non-shippers who liked Lavinia was the Christmas special when she sends a message from [[spoiler: beyond the grave through a Ouija board]] that she wants them to be happy.

* Sometimes this thing happens very nebulously when there are no true factions, especially in non-hardcore fandoms like those of sitcoms. Example: on ''{{Frasier}}'', most [[AmicablyDivorced Frasier/Lilith]] and [[BetterAsFriends Frasier/Roz]] shippers think [[LastMinuteHookup Frasier/Charlotte]] was a terrible pairing. On the other hand, they don't hate each other much at all. And then there's a group of fans, who have a small overlap with both the Frasier/Lilith crowd and the Frasier/Roz crowd, who commit themselves to despising every single GirlOfTheWeek Frasier has. Then there's those who think both the Frasier/Lilithers and the Frasier/Rozers are deluding themselves and take the potential of Frasier's [[ForegoneConclusion obviously doomed]] girls of the week too seriously, (especially Claire). It's nigh impossible to get any sort of lock on what the majority of the viewers is gunning for. Then again, Frasier was never part of the show's OfficialCouple anyway...
