** Especially in recent years with the release of the Compilation, this has become common in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' with [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Cloud/Tifa]] and [[TogetherInDeath Zack/Aerith]].

** Especially in recent years with the release of the Compilation, this has become common in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' with [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Cloud/Tifa]] and [[TogetherInDeath Zack/Aerith]]. Clout/Aerith shippers by contrast will pair Tifa with Barrett, possibly inspired by her acting as a [[ParentalSubstitute substitute mom]] to Barrett's daughter in ''Advent Children''.

** Here's a fun experiment: regardless of your Avatar's chosen gender, pair off Chrom with the nameless village maiden. If you selected the Male Avatar, this will leave all but two of the First Generation males attached to someone if you paired M!Avatar with one of the girls with a predestined child; if you married Flavia, Anna or Say'ri, then all but ''one'' of the males with a romantic option can be paired off, getting all the children. If you selected the Female Avatar, you can thus pair off every First Generation male with someone except Basilio, unless you pair ''him'' with F!Avatar (and thus leave another of the guys out in the cold). Also, while not possible in canon (as far as actual marriage goes, anyway), Basilio/Flavia is a [[FanPreferredCouple fan-favourite]] which can thus leave everything even ''more'' neatly tied up... Note that this is while disregarding [[spoiler:the SpotPass characters]], but in that category there's always [[spoiler:Gangrel/Emmeryn]] and its [[CrackShip impressively]]-[[MoeCouplet sized]] [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight fan]][[FoeYay base]].

* In ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' Zack and Maddie fans would pair Cody with London, their friendship in the third season further fueled this. In the Zack/Max fandom Cody and Maddie would sometimes end up together and vice versa. In The Suite on Deck Cody and Bailey fans put Zack with London after an episode aired where they were married for a class assignment, despite their relationship being more business based than romance based. This eased up a little after Zack got a girlfriend but some still exist. Zack and Bailey fans once again put Cody with London.
* ''SouthOfNowhere'' fanfiction almost exclusively sticks with the OfficialCouple of Spencer and Ashley. However some fans choose to reject the BetaCouple of Ashley's sister Kyla and ex-boyfriend Aiden and often put Kyla with Spencer's ex Carmen, who Kyla showed a degree of interest (albeit not romantically) in towards the end of the series

* ''ANime/CodeGeass'': Fans who don't ship Kallen with Lelouch will pair her up with Gino so that they can ship Lelouch with Shirley, CC, [[HoYay Suzaku]], or [[LauncherOfAThousandShips whomever]]. Suzaku will also be paired up with a girl (usually his canon love interest Euphemia [[spoiler:as long as the fic is set before her death]]) in the background of a Lelouch/girl fic in order to minimize the HoYay. Of course, [[spoiler: Lelouch is dead at the end of the series]], so it's all a moot point unless you are writing an AU.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':
** Shippers usually support Blake/Yang alongside [[FanPreferredCouple Ruby/Weiss]], likely because the main plot centers on the friendship these four share.
** Similarly, JNPR shippers usually pair Ren/Nora with Jaune/Pyrrha. The former are ChildhoodFriend[=s=] ''[[HeterosexualLifePartners juuust]]'' this side of canon, the latter has [[RescueRomance really]], [[UndyingLoyalty really]] heavy hinting that Pyrrha wants to make it official.
** Blake/Yang and Ruby/Weiss shippers also commonly ship Sun/Neptune, partially because some like the ship, partially because it breaks up rival ships Blake/Sun and Weiss/Neptune.
* 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 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.

* ''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.

* Almost all ''HeyArnold'' fans who ship [[OfficialCouple Arnold/Helga]] (which is pretty much all of them) also ship the BetaCouple [[BlackBestFriend Gerald]] / [[AsianAndNerdy Phoebe]], as per canon.

* In WordGirl, the shippers of Becky/Tobey seem to also favor Scoops/Violet. Inversely, supporters of Becky with anyone else tend to stick Tobey and Violet together.
* ''[[XMenEvolution X-Men Evolution]]''. Two words: Lancitty. Kurmanda. Goes hand in hand, and many who support them refer to it as 'supporting the canon couples of the show'.

* ''{{Victorious}}'': A common triple straight ShipMates fleet includes FanPreferredCouple Tori/Andre, the canon pairing of Jade/Beck and the [[FanPreferredCouple Fan Preferred]] BetaCouple Cat/Robbie. It avoids anyone having to DieForOurShip or even having to break the only canon pairing up.
