* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' has Merlin/Arthur. The couple was popular from the very first episode and it grew more and more until hundreds of fans began to watch the show for the main reason that Merlin and Arthur looked really good together. On every youtube that the two appear together in, most comments are about the homoerotic subtext in their relationship, about how they are secretly lovers/married, etc. This is sometimes extended to [[ActorShipping shipping their actors]], Colin Morgan and Bradley James. But while no one likes the OfficalCouple Arthur/Gwen, people ''do'' like Gwen herself, an so Lancelot/Gwen are another fan favourite, often appearing as ShipMates with Arthur/Merlin.

** As far as {{crossover}} ships go, the CrackShip Oliver/Kara, aka [=SuperArrow=], is the most popular ship in the fandom post-''Series/CrisisOnEarthX''. It initially started as a joke ship in response to the widely despised official ships on both character's respective shows. The meme was so prevalent that the writers made it an AscendedMeme during the crossover, by making Oliver and Kara's respective Earth-X counterparts a married couple. Said couple had more chemistry than Oliver/Felicity and Kara/Anyone ever did, which promptly made people start shipping it ''seriously''.

** As far as {{crossover}} ships go, the CrackShip Oliver/Kara, aka [=SuperArrow=], is the most popular ship gained a following in the fandom post-''Series/CrisisOnEarthX''. It initially Initially started as a joke ship in response to the widely despised some fans disgruntled opionions of official ships on both character's respective shows. The meme was so prevalent that shows, the ship became 'reality' when the writers made it an AscendedMeme during the crossover, by making Oliver and Kara's respective Earth-X counterparts a married couple. Said couple had more chemistry than Oliver/Felicity and Kara/Anyone ever did, which promptly made people start shipping it ''seriously''.during the crossover event.



Or at least, this ''used'' to be the case. Season Three onwards, the pairing's popularity started to drop due to a combination of Laurel being RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap, ShippingBedDeath, and Felicity becoming a CreatorsPet SpotlightStealingSquad, [[RomanticPlotTumor whose romantic melodrama with Oliver overtook the show during Season Four]] (widely regarded as the Franchise/{{Arrowverse}}'s absolute low point). While Oliver/Felicity still has a hardcore fandom (mainly on Twitter and Tumblr), the rest of the fandom has come to outright despise the pairing and prefer the original OfficialCouple of Oliver/Laurel instead (or ship Oliver with just about anyone else, including Nyssa, who is a lesbian in canon). Not helping matters is that when the writers actually started seriously entertaining the idea of Oliver/Felicity, the chemistry between the characters dropped ''significantly'', to the point that later fans started wondering why anyone shipped them at all.\\\
The final nail in the coffin was the 2017 crossover, ''Series/CrisisOnEarthX''. Part of it was the chemistry between the Earth-X [=SuperArrow=] couple, detailed above, but what really killed the pairing's popularity was the ending, [[spoiler:where Felicity hijacked Barry and Iris' long-awaited, impromptu wedding so she and Oliver could get married too. And this was after spending a significant portion of the crossover espousing how she didn't want to marry Oliver, including making a scene at the rehearsal dinner]]. This act was despised by nearly ''everyone'' who watched the crossover, including those who didn't watch ''Arrow'' and didn't care about Felicity or Olicity, and those who shipped Olicity themselves. Felicity became the biggest scrappy in ''the entire Arrowverse fandom'' for this, and Olicity became the most hated pairing in the fandom as a result.

* Go to FanFictionDotNet, and you will see that almost every ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles'' story is Jane/Maura. It's not hard to see why these two are constantly being shipped, with all the heavy-duty LesYay and whatnot.

* ''TheEvent'' has [[FoeYayShipping Vicky and Sean]]. Perhaps helped by the fact that Sean's fiancee is [[DamselScrappy Leila]], who gets herself captured at every concievable opportunity and gets more competent characters killed off by [[DoomMagnet being around her!]] The series itself implies that Vicky is attracted to Sean, so there is some basis for it.

* In ''SouthOfNowhere'' fanfiction, Kyla/Carmen is just as possible... or probably more than Kyla/Aiden.
* The show ''Film/TenThingsIHateAboutYou'' did plan on having Cameron and Bianca eventually getting together, but was cancelled before they could. Still you will find very little Bianca/Joey fanfiction. The fact that [[spoiler: they actually ''did'' get together]] in the [[TenThingsIhateAboutYou original 1999 movie]] doesn't hurt either.

** Karen Page / [[ComicBook/ThePunisher Frank Castle]] ships started popping up almost immediately after Season 2 dropped, quickly becoming the most popular Karen pairing. A major reason for this is their complete unfiltered honesty with one another, which was a breath of fresh air in a show full of people keeping secrets from one another (and especially from Karen). The confirmation of Karen in ''Series/ThePunisher2017'' also ignited this flame. With that said, Creator/JonBernthal and Creator/DeborahAnnWoll have sunk this pairing in real life, with Bernthal repeatedly shooting down fans at cons that try to ask him if this is happening and DAW saying Karen would never cross that sort of line with Frank since it would be disrespectful to the memory of Frank's wife. But then [[https://www.cinemablend.com/television/1729449/could-the-punishers-frank-and-karen-ever-get-romantic-heres-what-deborah-ann-woll-told-us this happened]] and the pairings popularity exploded, to the extent that when the show premiered on Netflix, itís tag on Tumblr was virtually nothing but Frank/Karen. Thatís one devoted fanbase.
