* ''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=].

Almost all of the criticism is directed at Sam, for her [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical morals]], all of the CharacterShilling she gets, and a major problem with the [[SeasonalRot massively panned third season]] was because the writers kept teasing it their attraction to each other.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Peridot/Lapis is one of the most popular ships, being crack at first but getting a strong following as the pair interacted more and more. On Website/ArchiveOfOurOwn their pairing has the most fan fiction dedicated to it passing out the canon-ships like Rose/Greg and Ruby/Sapphire.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' has Stormer/Kimber. The ship spawned due to "The Bands Break Up", which involved Stormer and Kimber developing an incredibly LesYay laden RomanticTwoGirlFriendship. It [[StatusQuoIsGod never gets referenced]] after Stormer goes back to The Misfits and Kimber has at least two boyfriends during the course of the series, but that hasn't stopped fans from writing them as best friends or having Kimber end up with Stormer sometime post-series. The ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'' reboot outright made them an OfficialCouple from the start.

** 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.

** Mabel/Pacifica (Mabcifica) is very popular due to people liking how their personalities would work together. There's a good chunk of ShipToShipCombat between it and Dipcifica fans, though a SiblingTriangle is avoided in most fanworks.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': The Zuko/Katara (aka "Zutara") fanbase is legendary. The "Ember Island Players" episode [[FandomNod lampshaded this tendency heavily]] with a play that put Zuko and Katara together and having her refer to Aang, repeatedly, as [[LikeBrotherAndSister "like a little brother"]].

** [[ToyShip Pairing The girls with]] [[DistaffCounterpart their Rowdyruff Boys counterparts]] is ''the'' most popular shipping target of the fandom. This was lampshaded in season six's "City Of Clipsville", which was intended as a TakeThat to the shippers. [[MisaimedFandom It was actually embraced by the shippers]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Beast Boy/Raven shippers. The creators of the show repeatedly stated that Beast Boy/Raven would never happen, yet it was an increasingly popular to the point where it's considered intentional by a large chunk of fans and it's the [[ShipMates preferred complementary ship for Starfire/Robin shippers]]. At the very least a substantially large amount of people preferred it to the official canon couple of Beast Boy and Terra (the difference on FF.net is about ''twelvefold'' in the romance category), and popular enough to occasionally get a bone thrown at them in the mainstream comics. The animated comedy ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' has completly embraced the pairing, dedicating several moments and whole episodes to their relationship.
