** Let's not forget that [=McCree=] has also been paired with quite the number of characters. He's been paired with [[FanPreferredCouple Hanzo]], Reaper, Genji, Mercy, Junkrat, Lucio, Soldier: 76, Ana, Pharah, and Mei.

* Dante of ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' fame gets this, mainly due to his status as an ActionHero. Not only is he paired with his {{implied love interest}}s from the first three games (i.e. [[FreudWasRight Trish]], [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench Lucia]], and [[BelligerentSexualTension Lady]]), but {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s just love to pair him up with [[CainAndAbel Vergil]] (''[[{{Twincest}} his own brother]]''), [[WorthyOpponent Nelo Angelo]] ([[spoiler:who ''is'' Vergil]]), and [[RedOniBlueOni Nero]] ([[spoiler:who may or may not be Vergil's son, and thus, ''his nephew'']]). People also love to CargoShip Dante with his Devil Arms (''especially'' [[HornyDevils Nevan]]). Very few notable characters are excluded from Dante's "harem"; [[ParentalIncest Sparda and Eva]], [[WomanInWhite Kyrie]] (Nero's [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Victorious Childhood Friend]]), the side characters from the second game and novels, [[MagnificentBastard Arkham]], [[HeroAntagonist Credo]], [[CrystalDragonJesus Sanctus]], and [[{{Satan}} Mundus]] seem to be untouched, but it would be no surprise if said pairings had their own niche. Finally, there's the {{Fan Preferred Couple}}s of Dante and VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} (his DistaffCounterpart and FetishFuelStationAttendant) or [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Morrigan]] (you can mainly thank ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 MvC3]]'' for this one). Naturally, some ''epic'' ShipToShipCombat ensues.

** Though specially Marisa, with more than seven ''frequent'' pairings, is who stands out in this trope. In some works to [[{{Badass}} GAR]] [[http://genso.ws/post?tags=cho_marisa levels.]]

** [[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. Pikachu/Samus was a popular crack ship during ''Brawl'' but it usually wasn't presented too romantically. 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.

* [[Franchise/MortalKombat Sub-Zero]]. [[VideoGame/MortalKombat2 The younger one, anyway.]] Canonically, the closest thing he has to a girlfriend/partner/lover is [[VideoGame/MortalKombatMythologiesSubZero Sareena]], whom he enjoys a hefty amount of ShipTease with. But thanks to the magic of ShippingGoggles, all of his friendships and rivalries are misconstrued as possible ships. HeterosexualLifePartners with Smoke and [[VideoGame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance Kenshi]]? HoYay. Former archnemesis of Scorpion? FoeYay. [[DeceptiveDisciple Former pupil]] Frost is [[FoeYay eerily-obsessed with him?]] MentorShip. Not even his older brother, Elder Sub-Zero/Noob Saibot [[IncestIsRelative is safe from being paired up with Subby]] (it doesn't help that there's a LoveTriangle-esque relationship between them and Sareena, as Sareena also had feelings for the original Sub-Zero). [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight He also tends to be paired up with females he's only acquaintances with at best.]] Sub-Zero/Kitana, Sub-Zero/Jade, and Sub-Zero/Mileena have all popped up before on several occasions, and all are popular in their own right. Smoke (in most titles) [[RoboShip is a cyborg]], whereas Scorpion and Noob are undead and Sareena is [[InterspeciesRomance a demon]] [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction in human guise.]] It doesn't hurt that he's also [[MrFanservice fangirl bait]], so expect the female fans to create [=OC=]s to jump Sub-Zero's bones as well.

* [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]] is easily the video game town bicycle; he's paired with everyone from the eponymous Princess Zelda to... well, to the Shinto goddess Amaterasu as seen in ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', given that both were wolves recently. (If there were a Shinto Hell, whoever first did that would be going there. Nor is this the only strange ship involving Amaterasu, in [[CrossoverShip or out]] of ''Okami'' itself.) Link gains a new harem within each big game. [[http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs8/i/2005/322/d/3/Link__s_Harem_by_Scribbles02.png Ocarina of Time Harem,]] [[http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs41/i/2009/011/1/8/Links_Harem_by_Slush_A.jpg Wind Waker Harem,]] [[http://th06.deviantart.net/fs38/300W/i/2008/366/b/8/Twilight_Girls_by_justmeandmypencil.jpg Twilight Princess Harem,]] and much much more!

* Due to vagueness of the character interactions in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' most characters are shipped with about four other characters. Somehow some characters avoid being shipped in general (Bastion, Torbjorn, and Winston) or are just so ooverwhelminglyg shipped with one certain character that no one seems to even ''think'' about shipping them with someone else (Hanzo and Zenyatta).
