* In ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' there 8 shippable main characters, none of whom anyone wants to leave out in the cold. Shipping in this fandom is quite the math problem, and there a few different sets of possible ShipMates combos. (Bonus points because the characters are all literally crewmates on a ship!)
** [[UnresolvedSexualTension Mal/Inara]], [[HappilyMarried Wash/Zoe]], [[RelationshipUpgrade Simon/Kaylee]], and [[FoeYay Jayne/River]] are the most common set of ShipMates. Jayne/River is the only one of these that isn't canon, and it's fueled partly by PairTheSpares, party by FoeYay.
** Supporters of [[BrotherSisterIncest Simon/River]] often take Kaylee out of the picture by pairing Kaylee/Jayne, and vice versa.
** Many [[UnequalPairing Mal/River]] shippers like to break up Simon and Kaylee in favor of pairing Kaylee/Jayne, and freeing up Simon to take Inara off Mal's hands.
** Another way of breaking up and repairing Simon and Kaylee is Jayne/Kaylee and Mal/Simon.
** There's always [[HoYay Simon/Jayne]] ([[WordOfGod which was apparently]] [[WhatCouldHaveBeen planned to be explored more in canon]]) and [[HoYay River/Kaylee]] (who had a rather close friendship thanks to Kaylee's relationship with Simon and her general friendliness).

* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' fanfics in which the main couple is [[BrotherSisterIncest Peter/Susan]] (yes, it's a Christian book, but that doesn't seem to matter anyway), also pair [[IncestIsRelative Edmund and Lucy]]. The same for vice-versa. And they are ''[[{{Squick}} common]]''.

** Since the Eleventh Doctor's appearance, the combination [[spoiler:Doctor/River and Amy/Rory]] is becoming popular. [[spoiler: Both became effectively canon in the series finale.]] However, [[spoiler:Doctor/Amy]] fans seem to prefer the DieForOurShip route instead, and let's face it, with Rory being [[SingleTargetSexuality Amy-sexual]] and [[spoiler:River being his and Amy's daughter]], we don't have much choice.
*** Though [=OT3=] ships of Doctor/Amy/Rory are fairly common, too.

* In ''{{Series/Firefly}}'', [[UnresolvedSexualTension Mal/Inara]], [[RelationshipUpgrade Simon/Kaylee]], [[HappilyMarried Wash/Zoe]], and [[FoeYay Jayne/River]] could all be considered ShipMates. Supporters of [[BrotherSisterIncest Simon/River]] often take Kaylee out of the picture by pairing her with Jayne, and vice versa. Additionally, many [[UnequalPairing Mal/River]] shippers like to break up Simon/Kaylee, pairing Kaylee up with Jayne and freeing up Simon to take Inara off Mal's hands. Some Jayne/Kaylee shippers who are into slash will often pair off Mal and Simon with each other. And in terms of pairing the spares in fandom, many fans like to pair Jayne off with River [[strike:despite]] ''because of'' their [[FoeYay rather antagonistic canon relationship]] and the age gap between them, or with Zoe following [[spoiler:Wash's death in the Big Damn Movie]].

* ''Series/{{Merlin|2008}}'' has several possible combinations. Merlin×Arthur is the most popular {{yaoi}} pairing and often accompanied by Morgana×Gwen or Lancelot×Gwen. If you're a het fan you're likely to ship Arthur×Morgana and Merlin×Gwen. Alternatively, Arthur×Gwen and Merlin×Morgana -- which seems to be the combination that the show is heading towards.

* In ''Series/GameofThrones'', especially with the budding friendship between the men of the two pairings in season 7, [[spoiler: [[KissingCousins (Jon/Sansa)]] and (Arya/Gendry), often called [[PortmanteauCoupleName Jonsa and Gendrya]],]] are friendly and often shipped by the same people.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}"", pairing Ann with Ryuji makes sense due to their interactions during the game, but it also frees up Joker to be with Makoto.

** Many fics featuring T'Pring/Uhura (for either TOS or the reboot) will have Kirk/Spock as the BetaCouple or just in the background, and likewise T'Pring/Uhura occasionally shows up as a supporting relationship in K/S.

(The 'occasionally' is due to the popularity of K/S versus the comparative rarity of T'Pring/Uhura - the former is the FanPreferredCouple and the latter ShipsThatPassInTheNight.)
