** Uryuu/Orihime took off in the Soul Society arc once they teamed up for their journey through the Seireitei, liberally aided by InnocentFanserviceGirl jokes to embarrass TheStoic Uryuu. That the pair characterise well together and balance out the other's quirks helped cement the ship. This continues into the Arrancar Arc, especially after Ichigo leaves Orihime in Uryuu's care while he fights Ulquiorra. Orihime's canonical LoveConfession to an unconscious Ichigo was not popular with these shippers.
** The Arrancar Arc kicked off an extremely controversial but popular [[TheStoic Ulquiorra]]/[[MessianicArchetype Orihime]] ship. As her kidnapper and captor, Ulquiorra's scenes with her are interpreted by shippers as MindGameShip due to the canon plot line being based on using Orihime's gentleness to teach EvilCannotComprehendGood Ulquiorra the value of human emotion and compassion. Due to how popular the Orihime pairings with Uryuu and Ulquiorra are, it's hard to know which is the dominant one, but the Uryuu pairing is viewed as the more acceptable, less squick-inducing, pairing.
** The major slash pairings are Ikkaku/Yumichika, Kyouraku/Ukitake and Yoruichi/Soifon. Canonically, the first two are both HeterosexualLifePartner examples and the third is a mentor/student UndyingLoyalty relationship. However, both the fandom and the animators love shipping them together and find any excuse to do so.

shippers, although Orihime never expressed any romantic interested in Uryuu before that either.
** Pairing Uryuu up with [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Nemu]] was also quite popular, especially as her father is Uryuu's ArchEnemy and yet Nemu still treats Uryuu kindly and Uryuu himself seems concerned for her welfare and is horrified by Mayuri's treatment of her.

** Kiyone and Tenchi is extremely popular with fans too, for same "overtly normal or at least sane" reason as Sasami without the incest and pedophilia problems. Unfortunately Kiyone appeared only in spinoff media, ''Tenchi Universe'' hinted heavily towards Tenchi liking Ryoko, ''Tenchi in Tokyo'' ended ambiguously without a WordOfGod, and, most importantly, Kiyone was the only girl, perhaps in the entire franchise, who showed no romantic interest in Tenchi, which just made fans want it more.

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' On the HoYay side, the most popular pairing would be Midoriya/Todoroki, after the Sports Festival Arc due to [[spoiler: Midoriya becoming a WarriorTherapist to help Todoroki deal with his DarkAndTroubledPast.]] After that, Todoroki's life does a 180º change, becoming able to [[spoiler: visit his mom in the hospital and working with his father(not forgiving him yet)]], after that and during the Stain Arc, it's show that they become friends and both hold each other in high regards.

** Rider/Waver is so popular that it is virtually canon given how many ShipTease moments it gets. WordofGod states they most likely [[IntimateHealing replenished prana ''that'' way]] and one of Rider's followers seen in his Reality Marble bears a striking resemblance to an adult Waver[[note]] due to the Throne of Heroes existing outside of time, this stranger could actually be Waver himself[[/note]].

There was even an April Fool's Day manga about an otaku Rider and a female Waver falling in love.

* Daikichi and Yukari from ''Manga/BunnyDrop'' are this. They have their ShipTease and fans find the idea of two single parents up together adorable, however come the manga {{timeskip}} and [[spoiler:and it turns out it didn't work between them due to the fact Rin and Kouki end up dating.]] The manga's OfficialCouple is Daikichi and [[spoiler:''Rin'', the kid he's been raising since she was six.]] Both the anime adaptation and LiveActionAdaptation [[CanonDiscontinuity ignore]] the manga and leave open endings with plenty of implications that Daikichi and Rin will end up together.

** There have been some similar LesYay debates over ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', mainly involving ShrinkingViolet Sakaki. The most popular Fanfic pairings for her seems to be with Kagura.

* Despite the NoHuggingNoKissing tone of ''Anime/HaibaneRenmei'', and slight ShipTease between Reki and a childhood friend of hers, Rakka/Reki is the most popular ship.

* In the ''Anime/{{Nightwalker}}'' fandom, there are those who would ship the main character, Shido, has a FriendsWithBenefits relationship with his colleague Yayoi, and his evil vampire dad [[StalkerWithACrush really wants to get back together with him.]] Plenty of fans prefer either one, but the show goes for a surprise LastMinuteHookup and pairs Shido with either Yayoi or Cain.his adoring, high school-aged vampire daughter.

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' fans often pair [[TheHero Midoriya]] with EnsembleDarkhorse Tsuyu Asui rather than his canon crush, Uraraka. They started being paired after Tsuyu pulled a BigDamnHeroes moment when a group of villains attacked Yuuei Academy's training course, and it was further helped when Miroriya started honoring her request [[FirstNameBasis to refer to her by her first name]].
** Uraraka herself also has a good amount of shippers that pair her with [[AntiHero Bakugou]], mostly due to their battle in the sports festival arc, where he was shown to respect her, protesting when their classmates called her "delicate". After the battle, she even became one of the few people he actually reffered to by [[TheNicknamer name.]]

Bakugou/Kirishima is also extremely dominant, due to being the only relationship involving Bakugou that can be considered friendly.

* Surprisingly, even with all those ship tease between Ako and Shou, the most popular ship of ''Anime/ThrillerRestaurant'' is [[{{Lolicon}} Anko]]/[[{{Squick}} the Garçon]]. It must has something to do with the ED and [[spoiler:the implication that they really have met before]].
