** The canon Finn/Flame Princess ship was sunk in "Earth and Water" when she breaks up with him for breaking her trust, and in "The Red Throne" FP once again rejected Finn and reiterating that she's no longer interested in him. It didn't help Finn's case that [[NiceJobBreakingItHero he caused all sorts of trouble trying to get back into FP's good graces, which basically involved acting very, very immature]] and [[spoiler:Cinnamon Bun]], of all people, ended up saving the day and declaring his (probably platonic) love for Flame Princess. At least, [[AmicableExes Finn and FP are back on good terms in "Bun Bun", though.

It may have been refloated just a smidge in "Bun Bun", though, as Finn and FP are back on good terms (never mind the fact the episode was a FixFic for the infamous "The Red Throne").

* In ''VideoGame/OverWatch'', the comics revealed that [[AcePilot Lena "Tracer" Oxton]] [[BadassGay has a non-combatant girlfriend named Emily]]. This sunk pretty much all the ships with her and any playable characters, specially with hwer ArchEnemy [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Amélie "Widowmaker" Lacroix.]]

*** Buffy/Satsu in the season 8 comics (despite the [[NoExceptYes mixed signals]]), since Buffy [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies doesn't want anyone to get hurt because of her]] and is [[NoBisexuals firmly stated be straight]]. She also starts having feelings for Xander. She eventually decides that the reason why she was interested in either of them was because [[SituationalSexuality there were few options available]], as she hadn't had much social contact with anyone other than her [[TrueCompanions friends/family]] and the [[ActionGirl other slayers]] for a long time.

** Takeshi Shudo, [[AuthorExistenceFailure a former chief writer of the anime]], managed to sink all Ash Ketchum ships from beyond the grave with his blogs. While it's not as if the current writers of the show are bound by that, the very nature of the show makes it unlikely to change.
*** This has recently been averted for the XY series. Serena/Ash shippers can rest assured that this ship is still very much sailing. [[spoiler: In the final episode, Serena kisses Ash. He doesn't seem too unhappy about it.]]

* In the trailer for ''The Passing'', an expansion campaign for ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'', Francis ([=L4D1=] Survivor) and Rochelle ([=L4D2=]) see each other; Rochelle randomly says that she hates stairs. Francis, who has a meme of hating everything, says [[ShipTease with genuine interest]] "Oh my god... you hate stuff too?". Rochelle says she hates various things, with Francis happily agreeing with her. Then she crosses the line and says "I hate your vest!", to which "I don't think this is gonna work out."
** This is subverted in-game, where they actually have a mutual attraction to each other.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' sinks FanPreferredCouple Batman/Catwoman, much to the displeasure of fans. The Dark Knight informs Selina that they can never see each other again, pretty much hammering the point home. [[spoiler: This is because he plans on FakingTheDead after his SecretIdentity is revealed.]] In a brief PetTheDog moment for fans, the two do share a kiss before departing.

** The episode "Emotion Sickness" could've been interpreted as a mockery of both Kim/Ron shippers and Drakken/Shego shippers -- [[WordOfGod Until it was revealed that Kim and Ron were supposed to have ended up together all along.]]
*** Drakken/Shego also end up together, making this more a case of HilariousInHindsight.

** The Buffyverse as a whole has a weird relationship with Buffy/Angel in that it keeps pulling out things to get in the way and make it seem more likely that they will never end up together, but still maintains that the two of them have a frankly invincible mutual attraction when in close proximity to each other. First, they have sex and Angel turns evil. Then Buffy kills evil!Angel and sends him to hell, just as he's transformed back into good!Angel. Then he comes back but can't stay with her because he feels like she'd be wasting her life with him, and so leaves town. Then, on ''Angel'', the two come to a very serious (almost physical) confrontation over what to do about Faith when she escapes to LA, seriously hurting any kind of lingering friendship. Angel arrives in Sunnydale with tension between him and Riley. Buffy and Angel make up, only for their to be a [[RomanticFalseLead immediate reaffirmation of the Buffy/Riley relationship]]. Over the next few years they barely interact and are paired off with other love interests. Despite all this, Joss teases the possibility of future Buffy/Angel in the Season 7 finale with a funny cookie metaphor. And in the GrandFinale of the Season Eight comics, [[spoiler:they are both endowed with superpowers by the universe so that they can have crazy, flying sex in order to create a new, "better" universe, which they then abandon to save their friends, but which comes back after them with a vengeance, [[DerailingLoveInterest possesses Angel, and makes him murder Giles right in front of Buffy's eyes]]. [Un-possessed Angel was being rehabilitated by Faith, and Buffy couldn't even bring herself to look at him.]] Later on in Season 10 Buffy [[spoiler: enters a serious relationship with Spike]] while Angel is sidelined with IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy and accepts them as friends. [[CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds This might have ''finally'' sunk the ship for good]], but who can really tell with these two.
