Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/PhantomInvestigators'' was for the most part pretty NoHuggingNoKissing among the four leads, with any romance with them only being crushes on one-shot or background characters that did not go past one episode. While the show doesn't have a large fanbase due to it's obscurity, many diehard fans of the show tend to ship Daemona and Casey. Doesn't hurt that many of their interactions could easily be read as ShipTease, such as Daemona wrapping her arm around him at one point in "Birthday Presence" and calling him adorable at the beginning of "Were-Dog".

* ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'': [[ManipulativeBastard Prowl]] and [[JiveTurkey Jazz]] might well embody this. In canon, regardless of cartoon or comic, they barely interact, and the few times they do, they generally dislike each other, and yet they have hundreds of fics on FFN. There are [[TransformersAnimated reboots]] where the two are on good terms, but most of the fanfics pairing them are about the G1 characters. There doesn't seem to be any base to the pairing other than "they're both white cars from the 1984 line" and "they could have chemistry, [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight theoretically.]]" It gets to the point where Prowl/Jazz fans can get [[DieForOurShip downright rude]] towards characters who ''do'' show affection toward Prowl (most famously [[ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye Chromedome]] and the [[ComicBook/TheTransformersRobotsInDisguise Constructicons]]).

** There are far more fanworks involving Lin and Tenzin than there are of Tenzin and his ''wife'' Pema. Tenzin is HappilyMarried with four kids, but a comment in an early episode caused fans to lean towards Linzin. In their youth Lin and Tenzin dated but broke up. Pema had a little to do with it, however the two were too different to work out anyway and had been growing apart even before Pema came into the picture. A large portion of Tenzin-centric works focus on his past with Lin, are outright [=AUs=] where they don't split, or have Tenzin cheat on Pema with Lin. Pema even gets hits by DieForOurShip and is sometimes depicted as a homewrecker.

* The Lion Guard fandom can't seem to make heads or tails on who to even ship Kion with. He has no less than 5 times the number of options for significant others than any other protagonist in the whole franchise has, so nearly everyone has a different preference.
** Kion and Fuli is a fairly popular ship, but it's often criticized for being an interspecies pairing. The select few who give them biological offspring typically get it worse than most.
** Seeing as Jasiri has come the closest to outright with flirting with Kion so far, shipping the two was a given from the start. Though, considering she ''is'' a hyena...

** This did make way for Chip/Gadget, but while they do have a whole lot of supporters, they're the reason for a case of BrokenBase: Despite [[SmittenTeenageGirl Tammy's crush on Chip]] ("Adventures in Squirrelsitting") and Gadget's potential crush on Sparky ("Does Pavlov Ring a Bell?"), the question isn't with whom to ship Chip and/or Gadget. It's rather '''whether or not''' to ship Chip and Gadget. Among the fans, there are the Pros who support this ship and make it the second FanPreferredCouple, there are the Antis who oppose it, whether or not they have an alternative, and then there are [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Neutrals]] who keep themselves outside of the debate.

** [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Fionna and Marshall Lee]] rocketed to a top tier ship thanks "Bad Little Boy" and hasn't looked back.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': Even with its BrokenBase status, it's undeniable that Starco was insanely popular from the get go. This includes Adam McArthur, Marco's voice actor, who is very openly shipping it. Fans were shipping it several months before the show even premiered.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', the main shipping of Danny and [[GranolaGirl Sam Manson]] is quite polarizing. Almost all of the criticism is directed at Sam, for her [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical morals]], all of the CharacterShilling she gets, the [[SeasonalRot panned third season]] kept teasing their attraction to each other and the AlternateCharacterInterpretation that Sam is in love with Danny ''Phantom'', not Danny ''Fenton'', as she fell for a boy who resembled Danny's ghost form and [[spoiler:was angry with him for giving up his powers]]. As such, Danny is often shipped with other characters, with the most notable being Valerie Gray and Ember [=McLain=].
