* Despite him being an OfficialCouple with 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.

This is further helped by Akeno being the first girl in the harem that Issei goes out on a date with. Something worth noting is the near-total lack of any ShipToShipCombat for this one - according to both WordOfGod and the text, Issei/Akeno is [[MarryThemAll just as canon as Issei/Rias]], and Akeno gets a kick out of being the "mistress".

** 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. The ship is still going strong [[spoiler: despite ShipSinking that occured in the last chapter.]]

** Contrary to the games, Black/White is a much more popular ship amongst ''Pokémon Special'' fans than N/White, whose game counterparts are the components of one of the most popular game ships in existence. Ironically, the one thing that had ''Special'' fans dropping the N/White like hot potatoes was the one thing that made their game counterparts so popular. Can you say, "[[FerrisWheelDateMoment Ferris]] [[TraumaCongaLine Wheel]]?". Black/White exploded even further in popularity thanks to the [[TrainStationGoodbye train scene]] and the [[DownerEnding infamous ending]] of the BW arc, leaving both N/Black and N/White in the dust.
** Aside from the faction that chooses to see them as LikeBrotherAndSister, [[ChildhoodFriends X/Y]] is also more-or-less unanimously supported by the fandom.

* ''LightNovel/FateZero'': While quite popular in FateStayNight, its prequel bolstered Saber x Gilgamesh to the top. Though he is still twisted, Gilgamesh is ''much'' more humane and sane in this version and even gets a few PetTheDog moments. Interestingly, none of these softer moments are directed at her, and the pairing is hated by other fans for [[AttemptedRape certain reasons]].

** While Ken/Miyako (Ken/Yolei) wound up canon in the finale, there was very little actual development between the two other than Yolei mentioning her having a crush on him. Unsurprisingly, couplings of either with someone else usually have more fan support. Daikari (Daisuke/Hikari) and Takari (Takeru/Hikari) also ended up as this since they already had a large fandom from when it was a popular ToyShip in the first and second seasons.

*** Not that Takato and Ruki (or Ruki and Jian)[[note]]Okay, ''this'' guy has more SpellMyNameWithAnS going than simply having a different name in the US. His Japanese name, Jenrya Lee, is the Japanese way of writing the Chinese name Jianliang Lee.

And of course, there's FirstNameBasis being more intimate in Japan than in the west - "Lee-kun or -san is his most common ''onscreen'' Japanese name. So Henry, Jenrya, Jen, Jianliang, Jian, and Lee all refer to the same guy.[[/note]] ever got along too badly. And the {{Ship Tease}} with Ryo was mostly him hitting on her as part of their rivalry, and stunted by his few sporadic appearences in the latter third of series making it hard for most viewers to get attached to him.
