* Although generally pairing names are just portmanteaus (e.g. [=KaiMei=] for Kaito/Meiko, [=LukaGaku=] for Luka/Gakupo, etc), {{slash}} pairings in ''{{Vocaloid}}'' are more likely to get odd.

* In ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' fandom, if you even think about it, good luck on trying to find a pairing that doesn't have a "____{{Shipping}}" name attached to it, the blank space filled by a word or phrase that applies to both characters, or combines different aspects of them. For example, the first ship that started the show's naming phenomenon was "[=RocketShipping=]", which pairs Jessie and James of Team Rocket. Others include Pokeshipping (Ash/Misty), Advanceshipping (Ash/May), Pearlshipping (Ash/Dawn), Palletshipping (Gary/Ash), Orangeshipping (Tracy/Misty), Contestshipping (Drew/May), [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Ikarishipping]] (Paul/Dawn), Egoshipping (Misty/Gary), Wishfulshipping (Iris/Cilan), Imaginationshipping (Ash/Bianca), and many more. Most recently updated list [[http://shipping.bulbagarden.net/listaz.html here]].

* ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'': Percy/Vex is sometimes called Hunter's Hex, after their signature spells, Hex and Hunter's Mark, which have very similar effects [[labelnote:*]] Specifically, an extra 1d6 damage to one target whenever they hit it with an attack; they have, at least once, Hexed and Hunter's Marked the same quarry[[/labelnote]]. The slightly less common Percy/Keyleth goes by Guns n' Roses, because Percy is a gunslinger and Keyleth is a druid.
