** 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, Reinhardt, 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.

* 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.

* There's not too much spite surrounding ships for the ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' games (the original, ''FES'', and the PSP version), surprisingly. The ships that get smacked around the most are arguably the MC/[[RobotGirl Aigis]] and MC/[[TheResenter Yukari]], which are the closest two "canon" pairings that the game offers. The latter is usually the most bashed pairing by fans, even those who don't really ship, due to Yukari's [[DefrostingIceQueen initial]] [[{{Tsundere}} behavior]] in the game. More often than not, in both shipping ''and'' normal fics, expect Yukari to be warped into a high-tier AlphaBitch and a ClingyJealousGirl (the latter being something she can become when the MC romances her during her Social Link, but only to a degree, and there are arguably worse love interests in that regard that get far less flak for it) .

** In ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonBackToNature More Friends of Mineral Town]]'' fanfics related to Claire/Kai, Popuri's already flanderized in-canon ([[VideoGame/HarvestMoon64 compare her in 64 to BTN]]) personality gets flanderized into having no redeeming factors and just being a ClingyJealousGirl to Kai.
** Sabrina seems to get the worst of this from her massive Hatedom, especially when it comes to the Vaughn/Chelsea pairing.

Kai. Also Mary, for being the rival of the most popular bachelor, Gray.

Added DiffLines:

** In the spin-off game ''VideoGame/RuneFactory'', The main heroines of the franchise receive a lot of heat for the way that the game favors them and tries to nudge you in their direction. Mist is much more regularly involved in the plot, images of Kyle and Mana hanging out hog the mass majority of Rune Factory 2's first OP, the second OP of ''Rune Factory 3'' shows Micah running up to Shara in her wedding dress and twirling around with her while holding hands regardless of who you actually married, they get flirty dialogue very early, etc.

** Vocal Valvatorez/Fenrich shippers aren't exactly thrilled with Artina since she possesses some CommonMarySueTraits and, initially at least, a rather sharp tongue. On the flip side, some of the people who ship Val/Artina are not exactly fond of Fenrich's JerkSue traits.

Added DiffLines:

** Spyro/Cynder fans take Ember's crush on Spyro and crank it up to obsessed stalker levels so that Spyro can run to Cynder.

** 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.
