** [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Steve Rogers]], partly because he's played by [[MrFanservice Chris Evans]], and partly because he's either viewed with a lot of "uke" traits (being younger, old-fashioned, and relatively innocent compared to his fellow heroes) or a paragon of manhood who can be strong, protective, and sensitive to other people's imminent emotional breakdowns. His portrayal depends on whoever he's being matched up with (i.e., [[LoveInterest Peggy Carter]], [[Film/IronMan Tony Stark]], [[HeterosexualLifePartners Bucky Barnes]], [[DracoInLeatherPants Loki]], [[MentorShip Howard Stark]], [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee Phil Coulson]], etc).
*** 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''. (As of late 2017, Steve/Bucky seems to be the most popular ship in all of MCU fandom, with Steve/Tony not far behind.)
*** Case in point: [[Website/ArchiveOfOurOwn AO3]] now boasts nearly 100K fics tagged with Steve Rogers (for comparison, Tony appears in 80K fics, Bucky in 60K, Loki 30K.)

* Website/DeviantArt is filled with fanfiction and fanart pairing Creator/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, Creator/MaggieGyllenhaal ''and'' Creator/KatieHolmes'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...

* 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 Website/FanFictionDotNet will turn up stories shipping him with [[IncestYayShipping 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.
** He's even shipped by some with his own actor. That's what happens when you say your character needs a hug...
** On a similar note, [[Film/IronMan Tony Stark]], who, due to his relationships with all of them in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', has been shipped, not only with his LoveInterest Pepper Potts, but [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Steve Rogers]], [[Film/{{Thor}} Loki]], [[TheIncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]]...

** [[DeadpanSnarker Darcy]], with a healthy side order of ShipsThatPassInTheNight. She's frequently shipped with Loki, Hawkeye, Steve Rogers, Bruce Banner, Bucky Barnes, [[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]].

** Following ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', Wanda Maximoff is shaping up to be this with her current ships being [[Main/AllLoveIsUnrequited Clint]], [[Main/OldSchoolChivalry Steve,]] [[Main/RoboShip Vision]] and... [[Main/IncestIsRelative Pietro]], although the last one has [[{{Squick}} very small support]]. Probably because she is such a massive [[TheWoobie Woobie]] even comparing to her [[spoiler:fellow Avengers]] that people just want something goes right in her life for once.
** Just about every character in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse is this. Even Coulson himself.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' features TheHeroine Rey, who has subsequently become the source of many ships. Although she is mostly paired with [[FoeRomanceSubtext Kylo Ren,]] it is also common to see her paired with Finn, [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight Poe, Rose,]] and more [[CrackPairing obscure]] characters such as Jessika, Kaydel Co Connix, and even Captain Phasma. Not to mention her involvement in popular OT3 ships such as Finn/Rey/Poe and Rey/Kylo/Hux.
