* Emily from ''{{Pretty Little Liars}}'' seems to get paired up with a lot of people: Ali, Spencer, Aria, Hanna, Maya, Paige, Samara, even Toby (despite being lesbian.)

* Interesting thing on ''TheTudors''. Henry gets paired off the most times in the show (obviously) but as for pairings written or suggested… um, Katherine of Aragon. A popular theory is that people just want her to be happy, considering how things went for her on the show.

* Claire Temple from ''Series/Daredevil2015'', ''Series/JessicaJones2015'', ''Series/LukeCage2016'' and ''Series/IronFist2017''. Jokes abound about her being the Defenders' collective girlfriend after she had a romance with Matt, the start of one with Luke, and even a bit of mock flirting with Jessica. Some fans even felt that with ''Series/IronFist2017'', she'd actually completely the set with Danny Rand, and [[spoiler:she didn't]].

** The Doctor himself. Especially since the newer Doctors -- Eight, Nine, Ten and especially Eleven -- are a bit on the slutty side, and the Doctor has been written as bisexual ever since the ''Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures''. While the Doctor/Rose, Doctor/River, Doctor/Fitz and Doctor/Charley shippers are the most vocal (and have the most canonical ships), there's strong support for the Doctor/Martha (who kiss), [[HoYay the Doctor/Jack]] (who kiss), [[FoeYay the Doctor/the Master]] (who kiss), [[RoboShip the Doctor/the TARDIS]] (who kiss), and this is all just from the new series. Even from the old series, there's the Doctor/Romana (he kissed the first in a non-canon special, and the second in the books, and the actors were married in real life), the Doctor/Sarah Jane Smith, and many, many more. Really, you can just say Doctor/X Companion and there's probably someone shipping it.

** Jo Grant, from the Third Doctor era, lends herself extremely well to shipping. She went on dates with Mike Yates in the ExpandedUniverse, married the leader of a hippie commune in the TV series, and has met up with the Eighth Doctor (in the novels) and the Eleventh (in the Sarah Jane Adventures). Add to that the picture of actress Katy Manning posing naked with a Dalek, which was canonised in the IDW comic "Prisoners Of Time", as well as pictures like [[https://twitter.com/ManningOfficial/status/515757751432413184/photo/1 these]] with Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi…

* Blair from ''Series/GossipGirl'' has been shipped with everyone in the show, including men who only love Serena, straight girls, her worst enemy, and her boyfriend's deceased father. Apart from that she's also been paired with [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Edward Cullen]], [[Film/{{Harry Potter}} Draco Malfoy]], [[{{The Vampire Diaries}} Damon Salvatore]], [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Dean Winchester]], and ''[[Series/{{Glee}} Rachel Berry]]''. And many more.

* Duncan Macleod in ''{{Series/Highlander}}''. Aside from the canon Duncan/Tessa and Duncan/Amanda, there's a lot of Duncan/Methos, some Duncan/Joe and even some Duncan/Richie now and then. And Connor has likely been paired with him a time or two as well.

* The growing ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' fandom has most emphatically thrown Ben Wyatt into this role. While he and Leslie are the FanPreferredCouple (as well as the show's OfficialCouple in canon -- a rarity?), there's also fic for Ben/April, Ben/Chris, Ben/Ann, Ben/Ron… someone out there probably ships him with [[ButtMonkey Jerry]] (even if only for [[IncrediblyLamePun the pun]]). Probably helps that this is [[http://www2.pictures.gi.zimbio.com/Vicious+Kind+2009+Sundance+Screening+1fkf7kjMVNsl.jpg Adam Scott]] we're talking about here...
** The Ben pairings aren't just confined to ''within'' the ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' series either; if the NBC kink meme is anything to go by, people like to pair him up with Liz Lemon (''Series/ThirtyRock''), Annie Edison ([[Series/{{Community}} Community]]), and Casey Klein ([[PartyDown Party Down]]).

The Ben pairings [[CrossoverShip aren't just confined to ''within'' the ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' within his own series either; either]]; if the NBC kink meme is anything to go by, people like to pair him up with [[Series/ThirtyRock Liz Lemon]], [[Series/{{Community}} Annie Edison]], and [[Series/PartyDown Casey Klein]].
** Leslie herself has been paired off with Ann (due to the huge heaps of LesYay between them), Andy, Ron, April, and in the case of {{Crossover Ship}}s, Trevor from ''Series/TheGoodPlace'' (due to him sharing [[Creator/AdamScott the same actor]] as her canon husband Ben), [[Series/DoctorWho the Tenth Doctor]], and
Liz Lemon (''Series/ThirtyRock''), Annie Edison ([[Series/{{Community}} Community]]), and Casey Klein ([[PartyDown Party Down]]).(due to the close real life friendship between their actresses).



* Sherlock Holmes from, well, ''Series/{{Sherlock}}''. The FanPreferredCouple appears to be him with John, but he's also paired with Molly (who canonically [[StalkerWithACrush has a one-sided crush]] on Sherlock), Irene Adler (a lesbian until Moffat decided to contradict his earlier 'not wired that way' anti-John/Sherlock statement), Anderson and Donovan (both of whom hate Sherlock), Lestrade, Mycroft (whom Sherlock hates), and nemesis Moriarty. Season three will most likely see him paired with Mary Morstan (John's wife) and Charles Augustus Milverton (the new BigBad).

* Rachel from ''Series/{{Friends}}''. Helped by the fact she was roomates with Monica (up until early season 6), Phoebe (season 6), Joey (seasons 6 to 10, intermittently) and Ross (briefly during 8 and 9). Several subtle (and not so subtle) ship teasing between her and the other girls (notably in some fights and "what if?" instances), some with Chandler (especially in early seasons) and she dated the remaining regulars. The character also, at some point, [[spoiler: kissed every other person in the main cast, including the girls]]. Joey also qualifies ([[spoiler:he also kissed all of them]]).

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Sansa. Sansa/Sandor as BeastAndBeauty, Sansa with PrinceCharmless Joffery, BrotherSisterIncest with Sansa/Robb, Sansa/Jon as brother/half-sister incest, later KissingCousins, RomanticTwoGirlFriendship with Sansa/Margery, NoYay of Sansa/Ramsay, Sansa/Theon (ASharedSuffering), Sansa/Tyrion (ArrangedMarriage), Sansa/Dolorous Edd, Sansa/Stannis, Sansa/Littlefinger... It's far quicker to list the characters the poor girl isn't shipped with by fandom. Even without the fandom, she's been engaged to Joffrey, planned to marry Loras and Robin Arryn, actually married to Tyrion Lannister and Ramsay Bolton, and attracted the attention of Sandor Clegane and Petyr Baelish.
** Brienne. She's been shipped primarily with Jaime and Tormund, but
also qualifies ([[spoiler:he also kissed with Podrick and Sandor. She was actually in love with [[IncompatibleOrientation Renly]], is [[ShipTease all of them]]).but confirmed to be in love]] with Jaime and [[AmazonChaser Tormund]] is completely besotted with her.

** Other male Mighty Morphin' Rangers have their fair share of shipping fanfics, notably Billy since he is considered the [[NerdsAreSexy Lady's Man]] of the team albeit being a nerd. Alongside pair-ups of him and his crushes in the show, some of the favorite fan ships of him include: Billy/Kimberly (affectionately labeled KimBilly or Billery by fans), Billy/Trini, Billy/Aisha, and Billy/Kat.

* Jack Harkness of ''Series/DoctorWho'' and ''Series/{{Torchwood}}''. Of course, he'd almost certainly flirt with everyone listed on this page. There is a ImageMacro series out there pairing him with (among others) [[TheWestWing CJ Cregg]], of all people.

** Fitz has been getting in on it too. Not only is he shipped with Simmons and Ward, but come Season 2, his budding friendship with [[SixthRanger Mack]] is causing many fans to hope for a little BiTheWay action (though Mack could very well be gay for all we currently know).
