*** As of ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'', it has become popular to pair Taichi with Meiko, Koushiro with Mimi, Yamato with Sora, Takeru with Hikari, and Jou with his offscreen girlfriend to give love interests to the entire cast.



* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': Sansa/Sandor shippers tend to also ship Arya/Gendry, as well as Jaime/Brienne. Curiously, this doesn't seem to have anything to do with "taking out the competition", as [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters the members of this particular group characters]] tend to have very few interactions with most of the others outside of aforementioned pairings, and that there are no ([[RuleThirtyFour mainstream]]) rivaling "ships" between them.

* In "Series/{{Arrow}}" the Olicity (Oliver/Felicity) ship is often seen paired with Nysara (Nyssa/Sara) and Merlance (Laurel/Tommy). Additionally, Diggle/Lyla is near-universally accepted - not only were they canon in the backstory (and got back together), they coexist peacefully with every other pairing and pretty much nobody ships either of them with anyone else (the less said about Dig's stint with his late brother's widow, the better).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/BokuNoHeroAcademia'' has many due to a GottaShipEmAll situation and Midoriya's status as LauncherOfAThousandShips, it oftenly depends on whom do you want Midoriya to be with.
** To Todoroki/Midoriya you have Bakugou/Kirishima and Iida/Ochako to keep Ochako, Iida and Bakugou away from Midoriya. Bakugou/Ochako is a viable option for the same reasons. Yaoyorozu/Jirou also appears to keep Yaoyorozu away.
** Bakugou/Midoriya has Todoroki/Yaoyorozu to keep Todoroki to be shipped with either of them.
** To a part of fans who like to have many ships at the same time, the biggest group that can be seen is: Todoroki/Midoriya, Bakugou/Kirishima, Yaoyorozu/Jirou, Ochako/Tsuyu, Shouji/Tokoyami and Tooru/Ojiro.

* In ''Series/The100'', fans of the pairing Clexa (Clarke/Lexa) will often pair Bellamy off with Raven or Gina in order to prevent Bellarke (Bellamy/Clarke), the other hugely popular Clarke ship.

* The ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'' fandom has largely been spared ShipToShipCombat,[[labelnote:*]] as a testament to that, the shippers of the incompatible ships of Percy/Vax and Percy/Vex are actually quite friendly with one another[[/labelnote]] but it's safe to say that if one of the twins ends up in a ship, there will be an obvious compatible ship for the other. So people who ship Vax with his OfficialLoveInterest Keyleth (or with Gilmore) might also ship Vex with Percy. Alternatively, if you ship ''Vax'' with Percy, you could always ship Vex with Zahra and Keyleth with Kashaw.

* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'': The first wave of fandom had Isaac/Mia, Garet/Jenna and Ivan/Sheba. With the second game came along the pairings Isaac/Jenna, Felix/Sheba, Garet/Mia and Alex/Mia. Interestingly enough, you almost always find them in this order. It's almost impossible to find Garet/Mia that didn't contain Isaac/Jenna, and Garet/Jenna that didn't contain Isaac/Mia.

This was not followed by the sequels, which canonized Isaac/Jenna and nothing else.



** Now that Isaac/Jenna has been confirmed to be canon, the fandom is keeping a close watch for the same to be done with its shipmates. Since Mia has been confirmed to have had two children with no known relationship to Garet's son, things do not look good so far.

* ''Anime/YesPrecure5'', in multiple configurations. Nozomi and Rin are HeterosexualLifePartners, as are Komachi and Karen; stepping either pair up to SchoolgirlLesbians is made impossible by the {{Official Couple}}s being Coco/Nozomi and Nuts/Komachi. If you go for the HoYay and put Coco and Nuts together, then Nozomi/Rin and Komachi/Karen become so easy that it's difficult to support any alternate {{yuri}} pairings for any of the characters (well, there is some support for Nozomi/Urara).

* Even though ''TokyoMewMew'' {{canon}} gives equal support to Ryou/Retasu and Pai/Retasu, strictly canon shippers tend to gravitate towards the former, because Ryou/Ichigo is the biggest fandom threat to Masaya/Ichigo in existence besides DieForOurShip. [[{{Expy}} It helps if they're]] ''YesPrecure5'' [[{{Expy}} fans.]]
