* 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.
** Sabrina from ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonIslandOfHappiness''/''Sunshine Islands'' seems to get the worst of this from her massive Hatedom, especially when it comes to the Vaughn/Chelsea pairing.


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.

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

** 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.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' fandom and shippers of Sans/Toriel in particular love bashing [[spoiler: Toriel's ex husband]] Asgore, due to the in-universe fallout from Asgore's actions that he still hasn't been forgiven for, plus simply for ''being'' [[spoiler: Toriel's ex husband.]]

** Anomen's real problem is less DieForOurShip than "die for ''any ship at all''". He is the one and only romanceable NPC if you're playing a female PC in an unmodded game, and struck a lot of people as whiny, grating, stupid, or all three. The presence of otherworldly bishounen Haer'Daelis as a ''very'' visible intended LoveInterest (he tries to seduce away ''your'' love interest, if you're a male PC) cut late in development just adds insult to injury for those who disliked Anomen already. Long story short: RevengeFic poured in from a wide range of interests, and with a large modding community to support it, got more than a little out of hand...

** Xiaoyu, [[DoggedNiceGuy Dogged Nice Girl]] to Jin and one of his only friends from his otherwise pitiable life, hasn't been unfortunate enough to actually be killed off in fandom works, but she does tend to be {{derail|ingLoveInterests}}ed from "supportive, [[TheDitz ditzy]], {{genki|Girl}} gal pal of Jin who wants to save his soul from evil" to something worse to make way for [[FoeYay his rival Hwoarang]], [[KissingCousins his cousin Asuka]], his [[TheDragon Dragon]] Nina, or even [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight characters with no ties to Jin in-canon]] such as Julia. This is in spite of [[WordOfGod Harada]] stating that Jin is [[CelibateHero as celibate as they come]] since he has cursed blood and doesn't want ''anyone'' else (Xiao included) to suffer what he's had to live through.

* An especially ironic example would be [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Princess Zelda]], who is frequently [[FanDumb bashed and vilified in]] {{Slash Fic}}s [[FanDumb wherein Link is paired up with]] [[{{Bifauxnen}} her male-looking]] [[YouFailLogicForever ninja alter ego]] (who is promptly [[CanonDefilement retconned to actually *be* male]]), Sheik.

* Most [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice Mao/Almaz]] shippers tend to use the Almaz ending for fanfictions, because Almaz's love interest, Sapphire, ends up [[spoiler:''wanting to kill him'', thinking he is going to kidnap her if she doesn't strike back]], automatically getting her out of the way, and making her a pretty nice target. Never mind that [[spoiler:''Mao also wants to kill him for his title'']] in this ending.
** Vocal [[VideoGame/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten 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.
