* Probably a combination of being portrayed by Tom Hiddleston and how sad his StartOfDarkness is, but Loki has become this from ''Film/{{Thor}}''. A brief trip through FanfictionDotNet will turn up stories shipping him with Thor; Tony; Steve; Clint; Natasha; Coulson; The Hulk; Sif; Jane; Darcy; Angrboda; Sigyn; Fandral; Baldur; Tyr; Pepper; [[UnholyMatrimony Amora; Lorelei]] and even Nick Fury, along with many, many more.

*** Brought to the nth power after the release of ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier Captain America: The Winter Soldier]]'', for obvious reasons. There, [[ComicBook/TheFalcon Sam Wilson]] and [[ComicBook/{{Agent 13}} Sharon Carter]] were brought into the fold, while the amount of people who shipped Steve with [[ComicBook/BlackWidow Natasha]] went up significantly. Then there's ComicBook/{{Bucky|Barnes}}, where the amount of FanFiction and fan art shipping them together ''skyrocketed''.
** [[DeadpanSnarker Darcy]], with a healthy side order of ShipsThatPassInTheNight. She's frequently shipped with Loki, Hawkeye, Steve Rogers, Bruce Banner, Bucky Barnes, ''JARVIS'', and Coulson, only one of whom she's even ''met''. On the slash side, she and Natasha are getting shipped together increasingly more often. The Archiveofourown fic site even has a tag labeled 'ship Darcy with all the things' that currently brings up 343 stories. Next to Loki, she might be the biggest bicycle in the fandom. 'Darcy is the fandom bicycle and I love it' is nearing 150 fics as well.

''skyrocketed''. (As of late 2017, Steve/Bucky seems to be the most popular ship in all of MCU fandom, with Steve/Tony not far behind.)
** [[DeadpanSnarker Darcy]], with a healthy side order of ShipsThatPassInTheNight. She's frequently shipped with Loki, Hawkeye, Steve Rogers, Bruce Banner, Bucky Barnes, ''JARVIS'', [[RoboShip ''JARVIS'']], and Coulson, only one of whom she's even ''met''. On the slash side, she and Natasha are getting shipped together increasingly more often. The Archiveofourown fic site even has a tag labeled 'ship Darcy with all the things' that currently brings up 343 stories. Next to Loki, she might be the biggest bicycle in the fandom. 'Darcy is the fandom bicycle and I love it' is nearing 150 fics as well. Darcy even shows up frequently in CrossoverShip pairings, like Darcy/[[Franchise/DragonAge Anders]].

* Website/DeviantArt is filled with fanfiction and fanart pairing HeathLedger's Joker with Creator/CillianMurphy's Scarecrow, Creator/GaryOldman's Gordon, Creator/ChristianBale's Batman, Ramirez, as of yet unintroduced Harley and the Riddler, random Mary Sues, Creator/AaronEckhart's Two-Face, MaggieGyllenhaal ''and'' Katie Holmes's Rachel, and anything in the Nolanverse that moves. I haven't found a Joker/Alfred one yet, but I wouldn't be shocked. And that's ''nothing'' compared to what they do to poor Scarecrow...

* Here's a fun exercise: go to a ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' fanfiction site and try to find a story which ''doesn't'' ship Jillian Holtzmann with another female character, either from the movie or an original creation. Oh, and remember to take lots of water, otherwise you're likely to perish of dehydration before you find one.

* ''[[Film/StarTrek The 2009 Star Trek film]]'' gives us [[http://kittyjimjams.deviantart.com/art/Fandom-Bicycle-127313360 Pavel Chekov]], aka Ensign Jailbait. Along with Captain Kirk, naturally, but not to the same degree.

** On a similar note, [[Film/IronMan Tony Stark]], who, due to his relationships with all of them in ''Film/TheAvengers'', has been shipped, not only with his LoveInterest Pepper Potts, but [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Steve Rogers]], [[Film/{{Thor}} Loki]], [[TheIncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]]...

* Pixar's ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'' has Merida, the first Franchise/DisneyPrincess without a LoveInterest. The character is [[CelibateHero very much against the idea of getting married.]] However, this doesn't stop fans from all corners of the internet from pairing her with whoever they want. Fans tend to [[CompletelyMissingThePoint pair her with one of the suitors she outright rejected in the actual movie]], pair her with their [[OriginalCharacter OC]], or make up some CrossoverShip.
* Jim from ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' is the most shipped Disney male despite the fact he doesn't have a love interest in his film. He's been paired with almost every female Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon main character, many of the males, and in multiple non-Disney {{Crossover Ship}}s
* Being the protagonist, Tinkerbell from ''WesternAnimatio/DisneyFairies'' has been shipped with a lot of the major fairies. She's even paired with her twin sister, Periwinkle.
