* In ''Webcomic/CheckPlease'' the fandom for Jack/Eric is a juggernaut compared to the others. For an idea, on the AO3 site, about 70% of the fics are about them. As of the end of the second year, [[spoiler: They are also an OfficialCouple]]

* Shive conducted a Twitter survey to determine which ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' non-canon pairing was most popular amongst fans. The result was Elliot/Justin.
** The OneTrueThreesome of Tedd/Grace/Sarah was also popular enough to get [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2201 acknowledged]] in a [[FourthWallMailSlot Q&A strip]].
* Depending on you and your god, Faye and Marten from ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''. Of course, one can say Dora is the better choice for the first five hundred strips, but recent events all but silenced Marten/Dora supporters.

* In the ''SomethingPositive'' fandom, Davan/Pee-Jee continues to be one of most popular ships, despite being repeatedly [[ShipSinking sunk]] by [[WordOfGod the author]]. (Even Davan's marriage to Vannessa isn't enough to silence them). His own opinion is that they could never work, but that and any amount fan appeals are trumped up the real-life woman who he based Pee-Jee on insisting that he didn't. It doesn't help matters that the majority of their canon love interests are either [[{{JerkAss}} jerks]], insane, or [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs insane jerks]] and given R.K. Milholland's [[TrollingCreator fondness for twitting the more annoying members of his fanbase]] (as he sees them) and his general lack of concern for collateral damage among the remainder, it's not terribly surprising that the Davan/[=PeeJee=] ship sails on.

* The ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation'' fans have proudly declared their support for the LesYay pairing of [[LovableSexManiac Marena]] and [[PerkyGoth Secret]]. Jukashi has been known to [[ShipTease tease]] the shippers on occasion.
** [[ActionGirl Karen]]/[[WeakButSkilled Ten Winds]] is rapidly gaining on them.

occasion. [[ActionGirl Karen]]/[[WeakButSkilled Ten Winds]] is rapidly gaining on them.



** It's often hard to tell when this is going on in Homestuck as there is a very high amount of ShipTease and relatively few actual {{Official Couple}}s. However, there's a pretty straightforward example with the post-scratch kids - Jane/Jake is clearly being worked towards, but Dirk/Jake and Roxy/Jane are much more popular.
*** Hussie is aware of and may have responded to this by having Jane's confession to Jake [[CannotSpitItOut backfire]], Jake revealing he is [[BiTheWay rather open-minded]] (and aware of Dirk's feelings), and making "cotton candy" - the FanNickname for the Roxy/Jane pairing - an AscendedMeme.

* ''Webcomic/OtherPeoplesBusiness'' has [[HoYay Fox Maharassa/Morris Hathaway]], aka Hatharassa. Sandra herself has said emphatically that it '''''will not happen''''', but she throws bones constantly to keep us all happy. She's good like that.

* ''Webcomic/{{Lackadaisy}}'' has Zib/Mitzi, otherwise known as "Zibzi". This would appear to leave Mitzi's canon squeeze Wick out in the cold, but he's got a backup in the form of his maybe-maybe-not romantic tension with assistant Lacy a well-liked ship in its own right.
** There's also a good number of fans who prefer Viktor/Ivy to the canon Calvin/Ivy.

* Many ''Webcomic/{{Gaia}}'' fans started shipping the thief Viviana and Ilias due to the fact that she kept conning him, much to his chagrin. It only intensified after their dynamic set into a friendly one as she [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/gaia/2012/11/30/shadowdancers-067/ pretended to be his fiancee]] for [[UndercoverAsLovers a heist]] and [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/gaia/2013/03/26/shadowdancers-092/ gave him a kiss]].

* John/Dave is probably the most popular ship in the ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' fandom. To give an example: Archive of Our Own has, as of February 2014, ''2500'' fan fics with that pairing despite being sunk over two years prior to that date with the [[InternetBackdraft still somewhat infamous]] "i am not a homosexual" quote, ''1000'' above the second leading couple (Rose/Kanaya, which, by the way, ''is canon'').

** It also helps that, due to the sheer number of different alternate timelines, Hussie has officially declared that "every ship is canon".
