* ''Series/{{Castle}}'' introduced a [[RomanticFalseLead rival for Castle in the form of Robbery Detective Demmings]]. As of "Overkill", Demming has now been told this by the fans (99.99% of them shipping Castle/Beckett) [[spoiler:because he kisses Kate at the end of the episode]].

* ''Series/{{Castle}}'' introduced a [[RomanticFalseLead rival for Castle in the form of Robbery Detective Demmings]]. As of "Overkill", Demming has now been told this by the fans (99.99% of them shipping Castle/Beckett) [[spoiler:because he kisses Kate at the end of the episode]]. However, ultimately this was short-lived as Demming was only around for a couple of episodes at most and the producers had a tendency to cheerfully lampshade that Demming was a too-perfect-to-be-true RomanticFalseLead at every opportunity, meaning that he ended up being fairly hard to hate.
** Beckett's later boyfriend, hunky surgeon Josh Davidson, came in for a lot of this, however. To the point where a popular meme throughout the series was to blame Josh for every single bad thing that ever happened ever.

* ''Series/Victorious'' surprisngly saw the protagonist Tori get a lot of fandom hate from the get go as the canon Beck/Jade proved very popular early on, despite some initially thinking the ShipTease between Beck and Tori were signifing they would soon be the Official Couple (perhaps leading that possible ship to being (mostly) abandoned by the end of season 1).

* ''{{Friends}}'': Many love interests of Ross and Rachel suffer this, most obviously [[{{DerailingLoveInterests}} Paolo and Emily]]. Interestingly Julie, Ross's first RomanticFalseLead, avoids the hate simply because she was so adorably sweet. The writers admit they couldn't even write a break up scene between her and Ross, and she gets her own happy ending with Ross's SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute.
** Richard, despite being a NiceGuy in canon, gets this from some Monica/Chandler fans (though only the extremists, most Monica/Chandler fans - who are pretty much the entire fanbase - are reasonable and don't stoop to this level). To be fair Richard declaring his love for Monica when Chandler was trying to propose and [[{{InsecureLoveInterest}} Chandler's]] in-universe jealousy of him doesn't help. Many fans admit that they liked Richard and his early relationship with Monica but disliked him after the hugely popular Chandler/Monica ship set sail.

** Anyone who is or feasibly could be shipped with [[TheWoobie Kurt]]. His canon boyfriend [[NiceGuy Blaine]] gets [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] into an emotionally and physically abusive jerk. His StalkerWithACrush Karofsky gets turned from an aggressive, sexually confused bully into a psychopathic rapist. Hell, his [[WhatCouldHaveBeen once-intended boyfriend]], Sam gets this as well. Each faction engages all others in all out ShipToShipCombat for the right of Kurt's affections. The [[PortmanteauCoupleName Klaine]] shippers are the most plentiful, though the Kurtofsky and [[UnfortunateName Kum]] shippers make up for their lack of numbers with [[VocalMinority sheer volume]]. All three have their fair share of batshittery, but Klaine fans are decidedly the more prone to psychotic insanity, including creating tumblrs just to insult kurtofsky shippers and telling them they should die and fabricating false news about Creator/MaxAdler, the actor who plays Karofsky, just to spite his fans. Max seems to also be one of their primary targets, since in an interview for Billboard about his character's attempted suicide in ''[[WhamEpisode On My Way]]'', he commented about having received tweets from people saying they hoped Karofsky could end up succeeding in his attempt and dying so Kurt and Blaine should be together.
** New character [[SmugSnake Sebastian]] is getting this big time from Klaine shippers due to his pursuit of Blaine, going from an aggressive flirter to an outright stalker and rapist who needs to be shot. This despite the fact that his behavior has been relatively mild and not even close to the actual ''canon'' stalking of Karofsky last season. His actor, Grant Gustin, has stated in interviews that he has received ''actual death threats'' from rabid shippers.
** Hardcore Brittana shippers launched a full scale war against Bartie and the ravenous Bartie fandom that [[WindmillCrusader doesn't exist.]] Creator/KevinMcHale once commented on the angry tweets he received from hardcore Brittana shippers, emphasizing that [[IAmNotSpock he isn't his character]].
** Finn gets this treatment from rabid St. Berry fans who distort him into an Evil Abusive Boyfriend holding Rachel back from achieving her dreams and being with the much more sensitive and talented Jesse.

** In contrast to the above, Mike has also been portrayed in equally abusive ways in the tartie fandom.

* ''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.
