*** And to complete the ridiculousness, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOP3nlQBIgs at least one player]] has [[PoesLaw (satirically, but still...)]] shipped Robin with Corrin, his/her counterpart in the newest game, ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. [[spoiler: Never mind that in some canon supports, Corrin is implied to ''be'' [[ScrewYourself another incarnation of Robin]].]]

* Endou from ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'' seems to get paired up with every other major character in the series, both male and female, most likely because he [[AllLovingHero can and does become good friends with anyone and everyone]]. Then there's a bunch of {{Starboarding}} with Endou on the receiving end, since he's a [[ObliviousToLove completely oblivious]] ChasteHero. Plus there are some fans who jokingly ship Endou x Soccer (yes, as in TheBeautifulGame).

** This is inevitable for VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} once she was announced and it's becoming apparent.

** This is inevitable for VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} once she was announced and it's becoming apparent. For a dose of irony, the two earliest(and so far most prevalent) are [[Franchise/KidIcarus Pit and Palutena]].

* This happened to Dawn and Lyra from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. ''Especially'' [[{{Moe}} Lyra]]. The most popular characters to pair Lyra with (in Japan, at least) are [[TheRival Silver]], [[MysteriousProtector Lance]], and ''[[MasterOfDisguise PETREL]]''. These are just the ''popular'' ones. ** In the west (and East at that), Morty and [[PsychoForHire Proton]] are also often shipped with her. *** Silver himself is a shipping magnet, too, especially when you factor in ''[[Manga/PokemonSpecial Special]]''. ** With ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', we have the male protagonist Hilbert (more commonly referred to as Touya or Black), who's being paired with practically every female in the game (and [[MostFanficWritersAreGirls plenty of]] [[BoysLove pretty]] [[HoYay boys]].) On the opposite side of things, the female protagonist Hilda (aka Touko or White) has inspired plenty of pairings as well. *** The real winner of this trope, as far as Generation V goes, is N Harmonia. The fact that he's characterized as [[AmbiguousDisorder socially awkward]] has not stopped fans from pairing him with (drumroll): [[FoeYay Hilda]], [[HoYay Hilbert]], [[OneTrueThreesome both]], Nate, Rosa, Bianca, Cheren, Serena, Red, [[InterspeciesRomance Zoroark]], and '''[[IncestYay Ghestis]]'''!!

* Speaking of SuperSmashBros, [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Samus Aran]] easily falls into this due to not having any romantic interest in her own series (or more than a handful of characters per game other than herself, for that matter). [[VideoGame/{{Halo}} Master Chief]], [[Franchise/StarWars Boba Fett]], and ComicBook/IronMan are common choices due to [[PoweredArmor Shared concepts]], but she seems to pick a new one up every new game in the ''Smash Bros'' series: Captain Falcon in ''Melee'', Solid Snake in ''Brawl'', and now [[VideoGame/PunchOut Little Mac]], due to the latter's introductory trailer, even though it primarily involved him [[LoveAtFirstPunch punching the hell outta her]] for making fun of his height. ** Also, oddly enough, [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Pit]] and Franchise/MegaMan in the latter two games as well. We're not sure why parts of the fandom have deemed her a {{shotacon}}, out of all the characters.

Marth and Ike have especially been paired with everyone constantly since ''Melee'', though it's most common to ship them with Link, Zelda, Peach, or each other. ** This is inevitable for VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} once she was announced and it's becoming apparent. ** When it comes to the [[PuppyLove younger characters]], Ness is the most shipped.

* LeagueOfLegends has over [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters 100 playable characters]] so it has thousands of ships by itself but two characters deserve mention, [[{{Adorkable}} Ezreal]] and [[MagicalGirl Lux]]. Despite Ezreal/Lux being [[ShipTease pseudo-canon]], these two get paired with too many different characters, friends, enemies, people they never talked, creatures...

* ''RuneFactory 2'' has an ''official'' LauncherOfAThousandShips candidate in the form of Yue. When the main character marries a girl who was destined for another guy, that guy will automatically end up with Yue.

*** Tifa's case is simpler: fans are willing to ship her just about anybody... so long as it ''[[AntiShippingGoggles isn't Cloud]]''[[note]]You can find fanfiction dedicated to [[OfficialCouple Cloud and Tifa]], it's just the sheer amount of fanfiction and fan art pairing her with other characters far outnumbers them[[/note]].
