** ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' sinks nearly every single ship involving Shinji, after delivering piles of ShipTease for them. [[spoiler:Rei is confirmed being his mom's clone and Shinji is aware of it, Asuka would sooner kill him or leave him for dead for setting forth the events that destroyed Berlin and her left eye, and Kaworu dies rather horrifically.]]

[[spoiler:Rei is confirmed being his mom's clone and Shinji is aware of it, Asuka would sooner kill him or leave him for dead for setting forth the events that destroyed Berlin and her left eye, says he is just a kid, (due to now being technically twice his age) and Kaworu dies rather horrifically.]]


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'', Rei's chances to hook up with Shinji or having a three-ways relationship with him and Asuka went away when [[spoiler:an EldritchAbomination possessed her and forced her to rape Asuka.]]

** The canon Finn/Flame Princess ship was sunk in "Earth and Water" when she breaks up with him for breaking her trust (admittedly, Flame Princess is not in the clear, either, having made a very hasty judgement call), 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, which has shippers up in arms. It is often accepted that Finn and FPs has three possible outcomes: 1) Finn and FP get back together, 2) Finn and FP become enemies, or 3) Finn kills Flame Princess, whether in cold-blood, self-defense, or because she has gone evil and has to be put down.
*** Despite the break-up, other media, such as video games and comics, continue to depict them as a couple. The canonicity of these are disputed, but it possibly means that they have information not available to fans.

** One particular ship, [[spoiler:Naruto/Sakura]], was sunk in a spectacular fashion. First when it was revealed in the final chapter [[spoiler:that they ended up with Hinata and Sasuke respectively]]. Secondly it was later revealed in a [[Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie canon movie]] that [[spoiler:Naruto's [[LovingAShadow crush on Sakura]] was just another facet of his rivalry with Sasuke, the guy that Sakura had a crush on, and it ultimately never went beyond {{Platonic|LifePartners}} [[LikeBrotherAndSister Friendship]]]]. Thirdly, with the revelation by the anime voice actors of Team 7 that [[spoiler: they knew that Sakura would end up together with Sasuke since the first airings of the anime because [[WordOfGod the author told them about it]]]]. The final nail in the coffin comes with [[WordOfGod an interview with the author]] stating that[[spoiler: Naruto marrying Hinata]] was planned from some time ago and that all hints pointing otherwise were a [[FauxShadow deliberate mislead]] [[TrollingCreator made to pull the legs of the shippers]].

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' indicates that [[spoiler:Severa, Owain and Inigo didn't get married in ''Awakening'', as they show up in ''Fates'' under different names as eligible bachelor/ettes, sinking all ''Awakening'' ships with them (unless one were to pair Severa with Owain or Inigo, naturally)]]. It also makes it probable that [[spoiler:Chrom is ''not'' Inigo's canon father, as, [[https://www.reddit.com/r/fireemblem/comments/494g3r/who_do_you_think_the_fathers_of_the_awakening/ among other reasons,]] he mentions being unable to perform the Awakening if you give him the Emblem Shield (which all of Chrom's lineage can do), and the only ones who talk about the Brand of the Exalt are Odin/Owain and his daughter Ophelia.]]

* ''Fanfic/NobodyDies'' sinks Shinji/Rei in VERY short order when it's made clear that this Rei is...not all there, and was raised by Yui and Gendo, technically making her Shinji's half-sister (a fact never stated in the story).

** Finn/Huntress Wizard was sunk in all of one episode, "Flute Spell", due to Huntress Wizard's fear of becoming soft, a fear Finn completely understands. An onscreen kiss, though, sent shippers into a tizzy.

* ''Literature/BridgetJones'': Anyone hoping for Bridget to end up with Daniel Cleaver had their ship sunk at the end of the second book, where Mark Darcy asks her to move abroad with him. Bridget/Mark was then sunk by the ''third'' book where Bridget is Mark's widow after he died five years previously ([[spoiler: and by the end of the book, Bridget is common-law married to another man and has adopted his children]]), causing fans to become furious when the news leaked on the internet before the book's release.

* Aragorn/Éowyn got torpedoed in ''[[TheLordOfTheRings The Return of the King]]''. Éowyn's LadyOfWar and [[DoggedNiceGuy Dogged Nice Girl]] qualities are no match for Arwen - LoveInterest, WorldsMostBeautifulWoman, and InterspeciesRomance. Unlike most modern ShipSinking, this torpedo is vital to the plot:: [[spoiler: Aragorn himself says she's LovingAShadow as he's trying to heal her massive injuries, and he's proved right when she doesn't wake up from her subsequent coma when Aragorn calls out for her, but hearing her brother Éomer call out for her is what brings her back since she knows him well and loves her like the kind brother he is, instead of loving ''an image'' of him like in Aragon's case.]] Also, [[spoiler: she ends up [[BetaCouple falling in love with]] Faramir once they get to know and love each other for the persons they actually are.]]
