* Flora gets treated this way by some members of the ''Franchise/ProfessorLayton'' fandom, because she's seen as an obstacle to hooking up Layton with his apprentice Luke. This is a particularly ''odd'' example, because 1) Layton's only known canonical romance was with a woman, 2) Flora is Layton's adopted daughter (though there are Layton/Flora shippers too), and 3) Luke is ''[[{{Shotacon}} thirteen]]'' to Layton's [[{{Squick}} 37]].

** Gency fans had a nuclear meltdown when a Genji/Mercy interaction was pulled from the Valentines patch and viciously blamed any other Genji shipper (Mccree/Genji, Genji/Zenyattta) for "forcing their ship down the writer's throats" despite a few other interactions, shippy or not, have also been pulled for various reasons.

*** The above was actually rather tame compared to what happened when those lines were still teased for White Day in January 2017. As one of the most popular ships in the fandom is Phara/Mercy, Pharamercy fans started aping on Genji and Overwatch writer Michael Chu on Tumblr and Twitter. Plenty of TakeThat pictures to Genji started appearing from Pharamercy fans on Tumblr, Reddit and other relevant sites. Ditto for when the lines were released on White Day.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' fandom has entered this trope when it was revealed that not only is Tracer a lesbian, but she has a canonical girlfriend named Emily. The fans who [[FoeYay ship Tracer with Widowmaker]] have easily taken the initiative with this trope.

** You could take a field day with all the DieForOurShip instances in the Overwatch fandom. Not only is the issue of fans butthurt with the reveal of Tracer's sexuality, but there's also a large section of fans who get into fights about which is the "better" ship. Most people look with disdain at the most popular heterosexual ships (like [[FlorenceNightingaleEffect Genji/Mercy]], [[AngelDevilShipping Mercy/Reaper]] or even crackships like [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl Lucio/D.Va]] or [[OppositesAttract Junkrat/Symmetra]], insisting for the characters to not be straight, and therefore these ships are "erasing their sexuality". It's rather ironic to see them get so militant about it, because aside from Tracer, Torbjörn, Ana (and maybe Widowmaker, not that that matters to Tracer/Widowmaker fans); we have no idea about any of the other characters' sexualities, so therefore any ship made between them is plausible.

** And let's not forget the ''massive'' hate that Sakura tends to get from both Rin/Shirou and Saber/Shirou fans, who tend to see her as a prospect SympatheticSue as well as [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass "girly]] [[RealWomenDontWearDresses and thus weak."]]

** While most Zelink and Midlink fans get along, there is that immature minority who would make you think otherwise. 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).
** Poor, poor Ilia just happens to be Link's ImpliedLoveInterest but gets bashed to hell and back by both Zelink and Midlink shippers, [[NeverLiveItDown usually focusing on her]] scolding Link for accidentally hurting Epona's leg (even though she apologizes later).

** And now we have ''Hyrule Warriors''. Before the game even came out, the claws were out. With the news that 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.
