Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' had a ship war between the 74th Class trio. Munakata/Juzo vs Munakata/Chisa vs Juzo/Chisa, being that there were heavy implications that Munakat and Chisa were an OfficialCouple, ultimately, with TheReveal that [[spoiler: Chisa was a Remnant of Despair who had been actively pushing Munakata into despair and took part in killing Chiaki]] and Episode 10 of Side:Despair revealing that [[spoiler:Juzo was in love with Munakata, ultimately, doing a HeroicSacrifice and saving the last participants of the Final Killing Game in exchange of bleeding to death]], becoming a fan favorite, Juzo/Munakata won by a landslide.

** A more extensive list includes:
*** Franky/Robin (due to them having been described as the "dad" and "mom" of the Straw Hat crew, numerous scenes of CharacterDevelopment they share; especially their recent Punk Hazard moments, and both being strongly connected to the MythArc).
*** Sanji/Nami or Sanji/Robin (his constant canonical swooning over both of them plays a role)
*** Zoro/Nami (due to their VitriolicBestBuds nature; fan artwork has even been dedicated to this one)
*** Zoro/Sanji (The whole rivalry between the two strongest and the fact that {{Filler}} has the two almost kissing...twice)
*** Chopper/Robin (largely because of a filler episode post-Alabasta that centered on his initial interaction with her)
*** [[LesYay Nami/Kalifa]] (because of how the anime portrayed their fight at Enies Lobby)
*** [[IncestIsRelative Luffy/Ace]] (due to their canonical closeness)
*** Crocodile/Robin (assuming the fanfics where this happens take place before her HeelFaceTurn)
*** [[HoYay Ace/Smoker]] (despite their very ''brief'' clash in Alabasta)
*** Zoro/Tashigi (because of her resemblance to Kuina, Zoro's childhood friend)
*** Luffy/Hancock (HopelessSuitor going after the ChasteHero)
*** Usopp/Perona (For those two being way too alike, and the fact Usopp has been the only man to tame her bossy personality)
*** Usopp/Kaya (Childhood Friends)
*** [[MayDecemberRomance Smoker/Tashigi]] or, to a lesser extent, Smoker/Hina (canonically he has a good working relationship with both of them, and Hina has a good understanding of Smoker's personality from their days at the Marine academy)
** ...yeah, the possibilities are endless.

** As the two primary main cast characters, Ichigo/Rukia is extremely popular among fans even though WordOfGod has stated they're [[PlatonicLifePartners "more than friends, but less than lovers"]]. The anime also supports this ship and inserts a lot of filler material to give them ShipTease that doesn't exist in the canon material.

* ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' is infamous for its ShipTease -- sometimes ''metric tons'' of it -- for couples that are not official at all. And that means basically all potential pairings, since there's exactly one OfficialCouple in canon to date... an off-screen hookup between a member of the supporting cast and a glorified extra. The fans have responded with {{Fan Preferred Pairing}}s for most of the main cast, particularly Nanoha/Fate, Suzuka/Arisa, Hayate/Vita, Subaru/Teana, Caro/Erio/Lutecia, and Vivio/Einheart. (That is, not counting the [[OneTrueThreesome harem theory]].)

* Amongst the ''Anime/KillLaKill'' fandom by far the most popular ship is [[FoeYay Ryuko/Satsuki]] that tends to have at least twice as many fanfics written about the two then any other pairing. TheReveal [[spoiler: that the two of them [[SurpriseIncest are actually long lost sisters]] doesn't seem to have petered most of the fandom at all, if anything [[IncestYayShipping it's actually made the pairing stronger]]]]. The popular Shipmates for the two seem to be [[HugeGuyTinyGirl Mako/Gamagoori]] (it helps that Gamagoori seems to have feelings for Mako InUniverse anyway). A lot of this was changed by the ending, however, when [[spoiler: Mako asks Ryuko on a date]].

* A ''lot'' of people who have read the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' novels are of the opinion that Kyon/Yuki is the perfect couple. This can be attributed to the 4th novel, ''Disappearance'', which [[ShipTease focuses majorly on Yuki and Kyon]], as well as the fact that Haruhi tends to go OutOfFocus, while Yuki becomes more focused on, all combined with an utter lack of any major Haruhi/Kyon hints. The fact that the author himself has said Yuki is his favourite character may also help. It may also help that Yuki is beloved by an enormous portion of the fandom, individuals at worst not expressing any interest in her, while Haruhi, though popular as well, has [[BaseBreaker acquired a significant force of haters]] due to the more abrasive and violent portions of her personality.

* Although by far one of the most popular couples in ''DGrayMan'', the mind-numbingly obvious pairing of Allen and Lenalee has accumulated a fair amount of haters. Most of the remaining in the fandom are proud [[PortmanteauCoupleName Yullen]] (Kanda/Allen) fans because of a "hate/love" appeal.

* Despite him being an OfficialCouple with [[RedHeadedHeroine Rias Gremory]] for around 10 volumes, the protagonist of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'', Issei Hyodo, gets shipped more often with Akeno Himejima than with Rias. This is partly due to their personalities being more or less in harmony: Issei is a LovableSexManiac with an eternal fixation for the female breasts, while Akeno is a [[TheTease tease-happy]] [[CasualKink sadomasochist]] - as well as a YamatoNadeshiko, and also has the largest recorded rack among all the girls in the series with an astounding 40". This is further helped by Akeno being the first girl in the harem that Issei goes out on a date with.

* ''{{Fruits Basket}}'' is a shipping goldmine! While many support the canical Kyo/Tohru, Yuki/Tohru and Kyo/Kagura complete the love triangle with a large fan base. On the yaoi side, Yuki/Kyo and Yuki/Hatsuharu are pretty popular too.

* Just a little over the first year of its serialization, fans of ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'' have already been pairing off [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl Akira Hayama/Jun Shiomi]]; the fact it can spark a TeacherStudentRomance fuels the preference further. Meanwhile, there's also [[VitriolicBestBuds Koujirou Shinomiya/Hinako Inui]], with many readers claiming the VolleyingInsults between as a sign of BelligerentSexualTension.
** In the case of [[TheHero Soma Yukihira]], ShipToShipCombat ensues as fans are split between pairing him with [[AlphaBitch Erina]] [[{{Tsundere}} Nakiri]] and [[CharacterDevelopment Megumi]] [[{{Deuteragonist}} Tadokoro]].

Similarly, the majority of the fandom likes to imagine there's a SubordinateExcuse for Ryou Kurokiba's loyalty to Alice Nakiri.

However, Erina tends to win out in the amount of fan works and forum discussions.
