* Flame and Ember from ''[[SpyroTheDragon Spyro: A Hero's Tail]]'' are almost always shipped together, despite the two never showing interest in each other, and Ember's [[StalkerWithACrush crazy obsession]] with Spyro. This is mainly because Spyro gains a canon love interest, Cynder, in ''The Legend of Spyro'' reboot series, even though Flame and Ember don't exist in that continuity.

* The ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' franchise doesn't have an awful lot of romance and relies a lot on ShipTease. Doesn't stop it from dividing up most of it's characters into pairs based on relationships, making this a partial example.

* Mostly nonromantic example - in ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'', at the end of the Bad Boys' Love route, the characters who were most significant in each others' plotlines are shown talking to each other - [[spoiler:brothers Sakuya and Yuuya, FoeYay couple Kazuaki and Shuu (who have a relationship to which "attempting to apply ethical guidelines is completely futile"), and VictoriousChildhoodFriend Ryouta with Hiyoko]]. San and Anghel, who barely interact, are shown together too, simply because they're both the two characters too weird to coexist happily with anyone else (Anghel is either LongingForFictionland to the point of madness, a RealityWarper who can't perceive the same reality as anyone else, or a full-blown TalkativeLoon with extremely vivid {{Hallucinations}} [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation depending on interpretation]]; San is a throwback to before birds were fully {{uplifted|Animal}} and thus is TheDitz. The ending portrays them as getting along due to Anghel being too crazy to notice San's stupidity and San being too stupid to notice that Anghel is crazy.

* [[TroubledButCute Satoshi]] and [[SchoolIdol Risa]] in ''Manga/DNAngel''. Its begin as anime-only hints in the end ([[ShippingGoggles that exchange of looks and smile can't be platonic, really]]), and become a popular ShipMates ever since. The existence of the pairing is acknowledged by the manga ([[ShipTease sort of]]) with them having a lot of screentime together and truckload of romantic vibes and chemistry (though ''Manga/DNAngel'' as a whole tend to tease [[LoveDodecahedron everyone x everyone]] so whether they end up with each other in the end is [[ScheduleSlip still questionable]]).

* Chapter 84 of ''Manga/{{Horimiya}}'' had a case of pairing the spares of the spares when it starts teasing Yanagi and Sakura. The two of them were originally interested in [[BetaCouple Yuki and Tooru]], who in turn were originally interested in [[OfficialCouple Miyamura and Hori]]

*SubvertedTrope at the end of ''Film/IncestTheMusical''. Mark--the female lead's DisposableFiance--goes over and sits down next to Jenny--the male lead's AbhorrentAdmirer--and puts his arm around herů and she {{Defie|dTrope}}s the trope by telling him to get lost.

* In ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings," author J.R.R. Tolkien originally wrote Eowyn as the love-interest for Aragorn, before he revised the story to include Arwen; therefore after he did so, Eowyn becomes rather hastily paired with Faramir, and a chapter is dedicated to their growing relationship.

See ShipMates for when the fandom does this in FanFic. Compare SexualKarma, LonelyTogether and BetaCouple.

BetaCouple. If the 'spares' were originally after the same love interest, see PairTheSuitors.
