* Franchise/WonderWoman is poster child for this trope. Every attempt by writers to introduce a LoveInterest for her - from traditional love interest Steve Trevor all the way up to {{Superman}} himself - results in [[InternetBackdraft backlash]] from the fanbase.

* It ''cannot'' be happenstance that [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]] has never had a notable love interest. The creators are probably well aware of DryDocking.
* Given that the game allows players to pair their own [[AudienceSurrogate Avatar]] with any one character (thus effectively making DryDocking ''canon''), the ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' fandom is ''full'' of this. [[TheHero Chrom]] gets it the most out of any character, resulting in his various love interests (especially Sumia) being the biggest DieForOurShip magnets in the fandom.

* 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:

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
