* 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.)

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has an interesting instance of this between games. [[spoiler:The aforementioned Olivia's son Inigo turns up in ''Fates'' under the pseudonym Laslow]], and tons of [[spoiler:Henry/Olivia]] shippers pair him with Peri due to the similarities between their supports and [[spoiler:Henry/Olivia]].
** Oboro has a huge crush on Takumi, so fans that ship him with anyone else tend to pair Oboro with Silas or Niles.

* ''Film/PitchPerfect'' fics that feature the prevailing FanPreferredCouple Beca/Chloe will often dispose of Beca's canonical boyfriend Jesse be pairing him with LovableAlphaBitch Aubrey. Doubles as a wink to reality - their actors are married.

** Spinning from Batman, the different generations of Robins and Batgirls give way to this. The {{Official Couple}}s [[ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} Dick]][[ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey Babs]] and [[Comicbook/RobinSeries Tim]][[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2009}} Steph]] tend to go well together, though some shippers [[NotBloodSiblings prefer]] Tim[[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Cass]], with the latter case having the other [[PairTheSpares girl paired with]] [[ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws Jason]] or [[ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsBatman Damian]], or if they're fans of [[HoYay Cass/Steph]], Tim will be paired with either Jason or ComicBook/{{Superboy}}. Typically, because there's so many options and, with exception, its rare to find a Robin or Batgirl fan who doesn't hold affection for all the characters in spite of picking favourites, its very easy to find combos to work with.

** ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}×ComicBook/{{Mockingbird}} and ComicBook/BlackWidow×[[ComicBook/BuckyBarnes Winter Soldier]] is quite popular, largely due to a common enemy. Thanks to ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' popularizing Black Widow×Hawkeye, its brought a lot of new Black/Hawk fans who've became infamous for vicious DieForOurShip tendencies. As Widow is well liked by Hawkingbird shippers and Clint is liked by Bucktasha shippers, doing the reverse isn't quite as accepted, so in order to combat this ship without resorting to these tactics, sticking together has became a reasonable solution. That, or just have a [[OneTrueThreesome foursome]] if they're also into Bucky/Hawk or Bobbi/Nat. This is also greatly helped by the ''Black Widow: Deadly Origin'' miniseries, which showcased Bucktasha, while also depicting Hawkingbird as something of a minor BetaCouple.
* [[ShipToShipCombat When they aren't arguing with each other about it]], the ''Franchise/SpiderMan'' shipping community tends to go with a more civil direction: Pair the other girl with Harry Osborn. Either, MJ and Peter get to live happily while Harry and Gwen go out, or Peter gets to go with Gwen while MJ and Harry hook up. Especially common in the many Ultimate style AU fics that have been popping up for the last decade, and helped by the fact that both girls did at one point in the mythos date Harry, and that MJ [[ShipperOnDeck was very supportive of Gwen/Peter]] before she hooked up with him. It makes a well received alternative to the constant mud slinging.

* The fandom for Shane Acker's ''WesternAnimation/{{Nine}}'' has always had quite a bit of ''fun'' with shipping since its period of going strong rather than squabbling for the most part, but the shipping bases for two of the three FanPreferredCouple's of [[OfficialCouple 9/7]], [[HoYay 9/5]], and [[MentorShip 2/5]] coexist especially nicely.

** The thank to Sybok's coercive powers Scotty/Uhura pair barely hinted in [[Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier the movie every star trek fans wants to pretend it never happened, including Roddenberry]] is quite popular amongst Abramsverse Kirk/Spock shippers who use it as a pretext to break up the canon Spock/Uhura from the new movies or pair her up with someone, after in their fanfictions Spock breaks up with her in favor of Kirk. [=McCoy=]/Uhura also likes to tag along as well.

* In ''Series/LostGirl'', main character Bo is in a bisexual love triangle with both Dyson and Lauren. Most fans ship her with Lauren, not Dyson. Occasionally this causes a ShipWar. Most of the time though, it's not a problem because shippers far prefer Dyson with Bo's sidekick Kenzi.

* '''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' encourages this as many games have the bachelors and bachelorettes have "rivals". So, for example, many ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife'' fans who like Mark/Celia or Mark/Nami are quick to pair Muffy with her boss and ImpliedLoveInterest Griffin.

** Anyone who ships Rarity with anyone else tends to ship Fancepants/Fleur, going with the assumption that she's his wife. (Fancypants' first appearence and a few of his cameos hint at this, but it's never stated directly) [[PrecociousCrush Spike/Rarity]] fans have a tendancy to ship [[FoeYay Applejack/Rainbow Dash]] as well.
** For those who don't do [[OneTrueThreesome threesomes]] of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, they ship [[ToyShip two members]] together and [[PairTheSpares ship the third one to Spike.]] For example, many Applebloom/Scootaloo shippers like to ship Spike/Sweetie Bell. It is also very easy to find [[SettleForSibling Spike/Sweetie Bell]] shippers get along with Rarity/Applejack shippers.
