** Peach gets it bad from Samus/Zelda shippers. Samus and Zelda often get shipped because they're seen as both being mature, [[TheStoic quiet]], and {{badass}}. Peach is in sharp contrast being bubbly and cutesy, though no less {{badass}} in the games themselves. In fanworks Peach gets mocked [[RealWomenDontWearDresses for being stereotypically feminine]], gets called stupid and a "bimbo" a lot, and often gets exagerrated how flirty she is. Peach isn't even competition in many of these works; they just enjoy taking shots at her for not being a LadyOfWar.

Peach also tends to be portrayed as homophobic, frequently erupting into tantrums and violence should Gay/Les characters so much as ''look'' at each other.
** Snake and Captain Falcon are often in competition for Samus. Expect one to be a no-nonsense, honorable warrior with the other being a lech who only wants her body. Sometime's they'll ''both'' be leches if the author wants to pair Samus up with someone different, usually in Samus/Zelda fics to demonstrate how Samus "shouldn't be with a man".

* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'':
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'': The slash fandom had it out for [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Rutee]] in the past, and more rarely for [[{{Meido}} Marian]], who got in the way of the popular Stahn[=/=]Leon pairing. Nevermind that [[spoiler: Leon died.]]
** Kyle, the lead from the sequel, STILL gets hate for simply ''existing'', because he is [[OfficialCouple Stahn and Rutee's child]], and thus invalidates the pairing.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' has this for Colette, the female lead who interferes with alternate pairings (both het and yaoi) for the male lead. She's detested by much of the fandom, mostly for being a BarrierMaiden despite, statwise and storywise, being an incredibly capable GlassCannon. This already bad situation is completely destroyed by the presence of Sheena, a female with obvious interest in the male lead who [[spoiler: has a tragic past and a CharacterDevelopment is seen as better than Colette's nevermind the BreakTheCutie that poor Colette herself goes through]], and to top it off, is portrayed as a fully-capable ActionGirl, which brings up [[WhatmeasureIsANonBadass the fangirls's misogyny]]. And this is despite the fact that, in real life, most people would probably love [[LoveFreak Colette]]. Including, in-universe, almost all of her romantic rivals.
** Zelos is loathed by some Lloyd/Sheena fans for his [[SlapSlapKiss canonical interest]] in Sheena, who take the worst of his HandsomeLech persona and turn him into a straight up JerkAss. While it ''is'' possible to both kill off Zelos ''and'' pair Lloyd up with Sheena in the game, you cannot do both at the same time, and if you ''do'' kill off Zelos, you've not only thrown off the canon altogether, but thoroughly [[OfficialCouple set Lloyd up with Colette]].
** At the shipwars' height, to people who shipped Kratos/Anna, Raine was a bitch and a slut stalking Kratos and trying to force him to forget the only true love he could ever have. To Kratos/Raine shippers, Anna was a blank NPC who Kratos didn't really love, but only felt sorry for. This was despite the fact that Kratos and Raine had fairly minimal subtext, that Kratos and Anna canonically had a child together, and that Anna has been dead for so long in the first game that she and Raine would never have needed to be in competition.
** Anna also gets the same treatment from some [[HoYay Kratos/Yuan]] fans, although they usually leave Raine out of it entirely. In this case, it also seems partly driven by HetIsEw.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'' also has this for Shirley, who, like Colette in ''Symphonia'', is the game's female lead. She interferes with alternate pairings for Senel (Senel/Chloe apparently being the [[FanPreferredCouple overwhelming favourite]]), especially since she and Senel apparently become "engaged" at the end of the Main Quest. But even so, it would seem that the vast majority of the ''Legendia'' fandom just generally [[TheScrappy wish Shirley to burn in the fiery depths of hell]] anyway.
** This is made slightly ridiculous by Senel being a ChasteHero, who shows no interest in anyone bar his dead ex-girlfriend Stella -- who's also Shirley's dead sister. Indeed, the two girls actually bond in one scene over the fact that he doesn't seem to have anything but friendship for either of them! (Despite Shirley being ''engaged'' to him, bizarrely enough.)
** Even more absurd is that both Senel/Shirley AND Senel/Chloe were already suffering by the point a love triangle emerged. Neither got together with him in the end, but their pining for him prior to that wore thin VERY fast. It makes one consider the possibility that perhaps any pairing with ChasteHero Senel isn't a good idea at all, and that perhaps Shirley and Chloe [[LesYay should just hook up with each other.]]
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'': Cheria, like the above examples, is both a straight scrappy and a victim of DieForOurShip from Asbel[=/=]Sophie and Asbel[=/=]Richard shippers alike. Not helped by her {{Tsundere}} behaviour towards Asbel, or being StrangledByTheRedString.

** Mario himself has been bashed and demonized in fanfiction for the sake of pairing Peach with Bowser or Luigi. Peach/Bowser fans in particular like to write off him as a JerkAss who doesn't like Peach, only the thrill of the chase that comes with saving her from Bowser.

** Rosalina is a huge BaseBreaker already, nevermind shipping. Many Daisy/Luigi fans and Peach/Mario fans are very wary of her because she has no love interest.

** And now we have ''Hyrule Warriors''. The game is not even out yet, but when a couple of things revealed, the claws came out already. With the news revealed Zelda and Midna are playable characters , naturally the Zelink and Midlink fans prepare their attack. Oh but not at each other, no. There is a new female villain on the block, [[VillainousCrush and she has a thing for Link]]. The [[VocalMinority immature sections]] of Midlink and Zelink shippers hate her already.

** This tendency toward Zelda-bashing has continued with the release of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', where the Link/Midna shippers keep creating ways to reopen access to the Twilight Realm, chuck Zelda through it, and bring Midna back (particularly absurd since Midna and Zelda are very close by game's end and that outcome would ''not'' be disirable to Midna at all)--if not outright have the sovereign Princess of Hyrule be the first victim of the next conflict. And let's not talk about Ilia, who gets it ''much'' worse....
** Zelink shippers aren't so innocent either. There were some very vocal sections who didn't take kindly to Midna, feeling very threatened by the fact that Midna spends most of the game with Link and is possibly implied to have feelings for him. (Meanwhile Zelda is a prisoner for most of the game).
** While most Zelink and Midlink fans get along, there is that immature minority who would make you think otherwise.

** Malon bashing increased much more when they revealed the timelines. Twilight Princess' Link is a farmer, starts with a horse, and knows Malon's mom song, and since he isn' a prince nor part zora/gerudo, it made the idea of Link/Malon much more likeable as canon. [[ShippingWars Of course the other shippers hated that.]]
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]'' had only three significant female characters: One was Princess Zelda, the next (Medli) showed obvious attraction to another boy, and the third was... Link's sister. (There's also this weird fairy queen with the crush on Link, but hardly anyone ever remembers her.) Also, making Tetra an actual girl, instead of a girl pretending to be a boy, was probably a wise choice as well... At least, there are little to no ''Wind Waker'' [[ShipToShipCombat Shipping Wars]] out there, but even without them, the number of fanfictions involving Link escaping Tetra's fan-overblown controlling bitch personality and heading off to be with Medli are astronomical. (They, however, almost never kill of Komali, who is hinted to have a one-sided crush on Medli. They rather pretend that he [[FanonDisContinuity never existed]].) Also, the only ones the Yaoi Fangirls pair Toon Link up with are... [[ScrewYourself pretty much all of the other Links]].

** Pauline quite possibly gets the worst of this of all. She gets bashed horribly by Peach/Mario fans. She's his ''ex'' girlfriend and they're just frriends now but shippers act like she's constantly trying to seduce Mario. There's also a great deal of SlutShaming due to Pauline's attire and makeup in comparison to Peach's PrincessClassic style.
