* Edmund Pevensie, from the ''ChroniclesOfNarnia'', is the EnsembleDarkhorse from all the protagonists and also the TroubledButCute {{Lancer}}, with a [[RavenHairIvorySkin pale skinned - dark hair]] complexion, hence he is shipped with practically ''[[LauncherOfAThousandShips everyone]]'', plus various made-up fan characters. By the way, the characters he is probably most shipped with are [[BrotherSisterIncest Lucy]] and [[HoYay Peter]]. [[{{Squick}} Yeah]].

** Also doubles as a great pun given her position as the commanding officer of one of Haven's biggest shipyards.

* Believe it or not, Sun Wukong the Monkey King is this for ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest.'' As far as Chinese fanfiction is concerned, he's been shipped with practically every important (and not so important) character, which is [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters a lot]]. The Monkey King has been shipped with his [[HoYay Master Tripitaka, his fellow pilgrims (Pigsy/Zhu Bajie, Friar Sand/Sha Wujing, White Dragon Horse/Yulong), Nezha, Master Puti]], [[FoeYay Erlang Shen, the Six Eared Macaque, nearly all his enemies (the White Bone Demon, the Spider Demon, the Bull Demon King, Princess Iron Fan, the Yellow Robed Demon, the Jade Emperor, etc.)]], ''himself'', [[CargoShip the golden cudgel]], original characters, crossover characters, and so on. Animals, humans, demons, deities, you name it, he's been shipped with it. There's even a pairing called All/Wukong, which pretty much speaks for itself.

* Daenerys Targaryen fills this role in ''ASongOfIceAndFire''. Common pairings include [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight Jon/Dany]], [[BrotherSisterIncest Viserys/Dany]], [[UnequalPairing Drogo/Dany]], [[BodyguardCrush Daario/Dany, Jorah/Dany]], [[CrackPairing Tyrion/Dany]], [[OneTrueThreesome Dany/Jon/Tyrion]], [[IncestIsRelative Dany/Aegon]] and [[LesYay Dany/any-of-her-handmaidens]]. To be fair, most of those have basis in canon. Viserys feels Dany up at least once, and their family has a good old tradition of incest, while one of the handmaids (Irri) takes it upon herself to [[spoiler:sexually service Dany when she's having a restless night]]. There are several foreshadows (Valyrian polygamy and the three-headed dragon) indicating that Dany could take two husbands in the future (although and she would find Tyrion completely repulsive). As for Khal Drogo, [[HappilyMarried well...]]

** Obi-Wan gets a bit of this as well, despite being a CelibateHero in canon. Anakin/Obi-Wan, Obi-Wan/Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan/Padme, [[Literature/JediApprentice Obi-Wan/Siri]][[labelnote:*]]That one's eventually established as a JustFriends relationship, with the pair admitting their feelings as Siri lies dying.[[/labelnote]], [[TheCloneWars Obi-Wan/Satine]], [[ComicBook/{{Republic}} Obi-Wan/Vos]] and [[CloneWarsGambit Obi-Wan/Bail]] are all popular pairings.

* ''Literature/ProtectorOfTheSmall's'' protagonist, Keladry of Mindelan, doesn't have any official love interest. So she's paired mostly with Neal, Dom, and Cleon, the three boys she crushes on...but it's not hard to find fics shipping her with, well, pretty much every character in the series, particularly the Yamani Ladies or other pages/squires.

* If the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' [[WMG/HonorHarrington WMG]] page is any indication Shannon Foraker is an extremely popular shipping target.

** Her nephew Aegon comes in a close second, with possible matches including Dany, Sansa, Arianne Martell, Margaery Tyrell, or even Arya. As a young man with a solid claim to the Iron Throne, Aegon is easily Westeros' most eligible bachelor.

* Percy Jackson from ''PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' has been shipped with every character in his titular series, including very minor characters. Especially since WordOfGod says that even though demigods' parents may be related, demigods themselves, even if they share the same divine parent, [[IncestIsRelative can fall in love and have kids]] [[IncestYayShipping with no issues]].

* The ''LeftBehind'' {{hatedom}}, in their exquisite BileFascination, has chosen [[TheAntichrist Nicolae Carpathia]] for this role. This comes most directly from Fred Clark's famous weekly blog detailing just how bad these books are, the comments section for which has officially branded Carpathia a MemeticSexGod who has canon chemistry with EVERYONE -- and they've set out to prove it too!

* MaximumRide has Iggy, who in fanfiction (at least, the fanfiction this troper has seen) has been paired with every member of the Flock (yes, even with 6-year-old Angel), Dylan, and Maya. And that's not even mentioning the sheer amount of MarySues and OCs the fandom comes up with. [[CrossoverShipping Or even the crossovers...]]
