* On ''{{Frasier}}'', Niles/Daphne was always infinitely preferred to Niles/Maris, even though Niles and Maris were married. This preference was largely due to the reason Maris remained TheGhost throughout the show's run: her actions were so horrible and psychotic, and her appearance so bizarrely described that the writers deemed it impossible to ever write dialogue for or cast a character of her level of monstrosity. (Niles and Daphne eventually became the OfficialCouple). To give you an idea how much the fans preferred this couple,[[spoiler: Niles leaving his second wife days after they eloped and Daphne abandoning her fiance at the altar]] were viewed as positive things because it meant Niles and Daphne were finally getting together.

* This was much the story for Mason and [[TomboyishName George]] from ''DeadLikeMe'', even though Mason acted [[BigBrotherInstinct like a big brother to George]] and was interested in [[AlphaBitch Daisy]]. They ended up, with the end of the series, just being [[BetterAsFriends better as friends]].'

** ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' had a lot of fan support for the pairing of Takatora Kureshima with Kouta's sister Akira - even more so after the show's BittersweetEnding, since it would finally give the characters a bit of happiness. Even some yaoi shippers like it, due to the idea that Takatora would be attracted to Akira's [[SettledForSibling similarities to her brother]]. In canon, [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight they don't interact on-screen until the final episode]], but with the show continuing via ''Gaim Gaiden'' straight-to-DVD specials, fans of the ship are still holding out hope.

Both Rumbelle and Outlaw Queen were intended to be canon from the start.
* ''Series/OnceUponATime'': Judging by the response of "Skin Deep", Rumpelstiltskin and Belle. Much like on ''Series/{{Lost}}'', side couplings end up more compelling than the show's primary romance. Lesson: {{OTP}} can't be forced. Rumpelstiltskin and Belle (commonly known as "Rumbelle") narrowly missed winning the most popular TV couple award for 2013. This was against popular fan couples, as well as canon couples.

** And as of Season 3, the pairing of Regina and Robin Hood (Outlaw Queen) are getting pretty popular as well.

* In ''{{Psych}}'', [[FoeYay Shawn/Lassiter]] used to be the biggest pairing a few seasons back. But now that Shawn/Juliet is the OfficialCouple, it's lost some of it's popularity. Though sites such as LiveJournal still continue to have devoted [[PortmanteauCoupleName Shassie]] followings.

* Damon/Elena from ''TheVampireDiaries''. However, the producers of the series have repeatedly said that Stefan/Elena are the true love story of the show and always will be, implying that Damon/Elena do not have much of a chance to be a couple or endgame, much to the Damon/Elena fans dismay. ** Even though after Season 4, Klaus moved to another show and both he and Caroline are getting an incredible amount of ShipTease with other characters, the majority of the fans still want to see these two together. ** Damon/Bonnie (known as "Bamon"), whereas they had a lot of ShipTease in the books, the TV series refuses to acknowledge any hint of romantic gestures between the two, despite the fact that the writers and producers never turn down the idea over the years. Fans believe this is because they are only trying to keep viewers from turning away. However, this does not stop the fanbase from continuously hoping. The biggest threat to this couple is Damon/Elena; however there is heavy suggestion that Stefan/Elena will be endgame, therefore Damon would be free to explore other options.

* ''{{Scrubs}}'': JD/Cox is the most popular ship in the fandom, despite the fact that JD [[spoiler:and Elliot end up together]] and Dr. Cox has been in a stable relationship with his ex-wife since Season 2. It's also kind of ironic because canon-wise, JD and Turk are the ones who have a lot of HoYay.

* The title character in ''Series/{{Jessie}}'' is with Tony, but fans like to pair her with [[LittleBoySeeksBigGirl Luke]] or [[BirdsOfAFeather Officer Petey]], or for LesYay, Emma.
