* You remember ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''? The movie that [[NeverTrustATrailer advertised itself as a cute animal movie]], but then pulled the rug underneath the audience's feet by the second half with [[FantasticRacism dark real-world social commentary]] [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids complete with racism, corrupt bureaucracy, and even illegal substances]]? Well, it's back to being a cute animal movie again, and for one reason and one reason alone: ''[=WildeHopps=]''! As in, the [[ShipTease potential romance between Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps]].

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Colour as a form of personal, artistic expression is so important in the story, wars have been fought, and the four main characters were introduced in prequel advertising trailers by their colour themes. As a result, shipping names always take an individual's colour theme and combines them. For example, "Rainbow" is used for [[{{Polyamory}} everyone/everyone]] ships and a [[http:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JpinKp5XW6htsPAri0kRMGKrxQwi458YU6HY734wuwE/edit#gid=0 fan-made chart]] exists to capture all the shipping names. The show's creators have acknowledged the fandom shipping names by using them as attack strategy call-signs in the show itself.

** Some refer to Kaito/Len as 'Banana Split', due to their respective character items of ice cream and bananas (although it does make one wonder if the former is a {{Shotacon}}, Len being 14 with Kaito at an estimated 21, and is somewhat parodied in the aptly named ''Shotarella''). In addition Kaito/Gakupo is referred to as "naisu", a clever merging of "nasu" (eggplant) and "aisu" (ice cream), and Kaito/Gakupo/Len as OT3 often has "bananaisu".
