* Aside from the age and incest hurdle, Sasami from ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' is big with fans for being the most subdued and overtly normal -- or at least sane -- girl in the show (in ''very'' general terms). In fact, before the Archive/GreatCrash, this page was called "Sasami Syndrome". WordOfGod has it that Sasami ''will'' marry Tenchi eventually. Because ''[[MarryThemAll everyone else]]'' will, too. Even then, however, many fans feel that Sasami alone - or ''any'' of the girls - would be preferable to StatusQuoIsGod.

* ''Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote'': When Sunahara appeared in episode 5 (animating part of the fourth novel ''The Egg Hamburg Steak Knows''), the western viewers immediately picked up Sunahara X Aya and prefer it over the "default" Wakatake X Aya, reasoning that a NiceGuy like Sunahara is a better choice to introverted Aya than the HotBlooded, impulsive, and occasionally {{jerkass}} Wakatake. Although later on in the anime the direction does turn to Sunahara's side; Aya and Sunahara has mutually confessed (despite still {{Star Crossed|Lovers}}), while between her and Wakatake it's more of a case of an ambiguous JustFriends plus mutual {{Green Eye|edMonster}}ing.

*** Alain/Mairin is a huge one. People started shipping them from the moment their designs were revealed, and it only became more and more popular as the Mega Evolution specials went on, to the point where you'd have to scavenge the fandom to find someone who ''doesn't'' ship them. [[spoiler:Following the end of the specials, fans are left hoping for a happy resolution after their [[TearJerker heartbreaking]] last moments together.]]

* For the ''Manga/SgtFrog'' fanbase, you're more likely to find fanart of Giroro with Natsumi rather than her canon crush, Saburo.

* Roy/Riza ("[[FanNickname Royai]]") of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' seems to be of the "set it up as fan-preferred for extra credit when it becomes official" variety, with many [[ShipperOnDeck other characters]] [[EveryoneCanSeeIt acknowledging it]]. But the true Fan Preferred Couple of the series is Roy/Ed, which is unsurprisingly popular with slash fans (especially among fans of the first anime, where there was far less Royai build-up), even with Ed being in an OfficialCouple with Winry by the end of the manga/''Brotherhood''. ** Overall, the whole issue of shipping is one of the big divides between fans of the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist original anime]] and those of the manga/''Brotherhood''; fans of the latter overwhelmingly prefer the various [[OfficialCouple Official Couples]], whereas the former focused less on romance and had a more ambiguous ending, leaving fans to draw their own conclusions. (For example, part of the reason that Roy/Ed was so fan-preferred is that the first anime's {{Het}} shippers were [[ShipToShipCombat fiercely divided]] over whether Ed belonged with Winry or Rose, a much more important character in the 2003 anime continuity.) However, overall, Roy/Ed remains the most popular ship when one crunches the numbers on fanfiction and fanart sites, especially in the Japanese fanbase.

** Though shipping Edward with Winry was exceedingly popular for 2003 fans it's also very common to pair her with ''Sheska''. The same reasons above only made people ship it more, even some Edwins fans.

* Quite a few ''{{Genshiken}}'' fans would love to see Madarame and Saki at least try to get together. Sure, Madarame seems to have a disadvantage compared to Kousaka in the looks department, but he and Saki seem to be a much better match when it comes to temperament. They also like to tease each other a bit too much for comfort. * ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'', being a ReverseHarem series, has a lot of this:
