* Many StarTrek fans cannot abide by any sort of canonical shipping between characters. Some of the more controversial ones (often controversial because they weren't the ships some fans wanted) include:

** Unfortunately for the writer, though, Creator/{{Valve}} doesn't agree and has her shifting between ShipTease with Scout and being asexual.

* Note that the YKTTW was originally called "Stay Away From [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Jack Sparrow]]".
* [[MarvelCinematicUniverse Loki]]. Once, [[Creator/TomHiddleston Tom Hiddleston]] commented that he'd like to see comic character Amora added to the movie cast. He didn't particularly put a romantic angle on it (though some articles quoting him tried to add one), but there was still fan outrage.
* Elsa from ''{{Disney/Frozen}}'', and to a lesser extent, her younger sister Anna. You don't need to go far into the fandom to find fans proclaiming "Elsa/me OTP" and doing more disturbing things that...will not be discussed further here.

* People of both sexes did not want Ross and Rachel on ''{{Friends}}'' to be together, so they could have that couple for themselves.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' fandom has "Stay away from the Doctor!", with a vocal contingent of fans who hate the idea of the Doctor being with anyone. Some to make him available in a romantic sense, but usually to make him available in a distant, idol sense. For much of the series run, there was no romance or love interest for the Doctor, as it was a family show in a chaste era. This eventually meant people felt the Doctor was above love and sex and even got to the point where one writer introduced a non-sexual way for Time Lords to reproduce--by "spinning" a fully grown adult into existence by the use of "looms". When the show was revived, this--or at least parts of it--were disregarded when it was clear there were Time Lord children and infants.
** Another rationale for this viewpoint is the more it's established that the Doctor finds any attraction to females, the harder it will be to sell the idea of the Doctor someday regenerating into a woman, which many want to see happen.

* This is somewhat inevitable in Creator/BioWare fandoms, considering the huge role {{Romance Sidequest}}s play in their games, and players often deep attachments to their created characters. Any suggestion that one of the canonical love interests hooks up with someone other than their own PC tends to drive [[FanBoy certain]] [[EstrogenBrigade people]] insane.

Any suggestion that one of the canonical love interests hooks up with someone other than their own PC tends to drive [[FanBoy certain]] [[EstrogenBrigade people]] insane. ''Franchise/DragonAge'' fandom is especially rife with this. Just a mere throwaway mention in a non-canonical AlternateUniverse DLC that suggested [[spoiler:Alistair and Leliana were rumored to be lovers]] in that timeline caused an InternetBackdraft from the rabid portion of Alistair fangirls.
** While it's only prevalent within the hardcore shippers of these ''Franchise/MassEffect'' pairings, there ''are'' people out there who are ''vehemently'' opposed to pairing Garrus, Tali, Thane and Liara with anyone else besides Shepard (fitting the trope, as Shepard -male and female- is a vehicle for the player). Garrus and Tali actually do pair up in the third game if both are still available.
** Similarly in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Fenris and Isabela can develop a friends-with-benefits relationship in Act 3, provided that Hawke has shut down both their romances by that point (either by picking the broken heart option or by romancing Merrill/Anders instead). Needless to say, this led to a lot of hate for Isabela from certain crazed Fenris fans.

* This is part the reason Flash Sentry gets [[TheScrappy a lot of flak]] in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'', as his role of being Twilight Sparkle's love interest set some fans on fire, going as far as calling Flash the "[[MemeticSexgod Waifu]] [[MemeticMolester Stealer]]".

* A misfired attempt at this in the ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' fandom led to this. After ''Expiration Date'' hinted a a budding relationship between the Scout and Miss Pauling (though with Scout being much more interested in her than her in him), [[https://mobile.twitter.com/jaypinkerton/status/612113790750961664 a fan yelled out to one of the writers on]] {{Website/Twitter}}: "better not make Scout x Miss Pauling canon bc she's MINE". Said writer then completely flipped Scout's (and the fan's) chances [[WordOfGay by revealing Pauling is actually gay]].
