** ''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)]].

* Readers of ''At Soul's Edge'', one of the numerous adaptations of the original plot of ''BaldursGate'', were apparently suggesting the heroine would make a good match with Edwin, who hadn't even appeared in the story so far. The author disagreed. So Edwin made his appearance - the characters happened upon his hanging, which was executed without interruption.

* In ''VideoGame/BaldursGate II'', there's plenty of interaction and fondness and loyalty between Imoen and the main character...and then, boom! Half-siblings. (Didn't stop some people, and was even referenced in-game.)

* The [[TeasingCreator creators]] of ''TigerAndBunny'' like to [[ZigZaggedTrope play around]] with this. Episode 4 reveals [[SmittenTeenageGirl Karina's]] crush on [[CluelessChickMagnet Kotetsu]], a CrusadingWidower with a kid. She doesn't find out about his wife and daughter until ep.9, upon which she seems to abandon pining for him. But following a LoveEpiphany in ep.14, she realizes she [[EatingTheEyeCandy can't help her feelings.]] The 25th episode shows Karina apparently deciding that she wants to [[RomancingTheWidow Romance The Widower]] after all (take a look at the picture on the trope's main page), but then...''the series ends.'' Kotetsu's utter [[ObliviousTolove obliviousness]] throughout the story frustrated a lot of fans, to say the least. However, the creators' later comments that "her crush was ''meant'' to be depicted as {{hopeless| suitor}}" did little to deter some shippers.

** The Sasuke/Karin ship has gone through several cycles of teasing, then sinking, and then raised again from the depths: First when Sasuke [[ShootTheHostage stabs through her]] to kill Danzo and as result Karin decides that she's through with him, but then during the Shinobi war, she [[EasilyForgiven immediately forgives him]] and has several ShipTeasing moments with him, but then, as it was mentioned above, during the finale [[spoiler: Sasuke is shown married to Sakura, with a daughter, Sarada, and Karin nowhere to be found.]] Should be the end of it right? [[spoiler: Wrong! In the PostScriptSeason, ''Manga/NarutoGaiden'', it is hinted that Sarada might actually be Karin's, not Sakura's daughter, a [=DNA=] test even seemingly confirms this, but in the end it is confirmed that Sakura is indeed Sarada's mother and Karin was actually the midwife. Karin herself states that [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy as long as Sasuke is happy she is happy too]] finally putting the ship to rest]].

* On ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutron'', Sheen/Libby was made official near the end of the series, but in the spin-off ''PlanetSheen'' they gave him a new love interest, [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Blue Skinned Space Babe]] Aseefa. He never even mentions Libby.

** Finn/Rey developed a small but devoted fanbase after the release of The Force Awakens, with fans interested in seeing an interracial couple depicted in a franchise as big as Star Wars. Despite the actors claiming more than once that Finn and Rey were only friends, it wasn't until John Boyega's [[http://variety.com/2016/film/news/star-wars-episode-viii-darker-bigger-john-boyega-1201774027/ Cannes 2016 interview]] that the ship was met with a quick death. Boyega clarified once more that Finn and Rey are just friends who didn't establish a romance in The Force Awakens. He added that the romance in the next instalment would not go in the direction some fans might suspect, prefacing with another reminder that Rey and Finn are ''only friends''. (That said, there is precedent for actors to make statements apparently sinking ships that end up being contradicted later on.)

** "The Return" and "Jail Break" also sunk the popular Lapis Lazuli/Peridot ship with the two not even interacting directly, Peridot not seeing Lapis as anything more than a prisoner, and [[spoiler:Lapis fusing with Jasper in order to trap both of them at the bottom of the ocean.]]

It helps that the two are now roommates living in Greg's barn.]]

* Louis and Lestat from ''TheVampireChronicles.'' After becoming super religious after a death in the family, Anne Rice had all Vampire Chronicles fanfiction removed from Fanfiction.net, had Lestat date the Queen for awhile, then pawned Louis off to a witch with Lestat's blessing. She also did this to Marius, who ended up with neither Armand nor Pandora.
* In Naomi Novik's ''{{Temeraire}}'' series, despite the vocal Laurence/Emily Roland shipping presence on Website/DeviantART, this ship is sunk when [[spoiler: Emily displays clear romantic affections for Demane in ''Crucible of Gold'']]. Not that the ship [[TheJailBaitWait wasn't creepy to begin with]].

* It almost seems like Louisa May Alcott wrote the first sequel to ''LittleWomen'' deliberately to sink the Jo/Laurie ship ("I won't marry Jo to Laurie to please anybody," she wrote in her diary); Jo March's marriage to Professor Bhaer in ''LittleWomen'' is a confirmed Authorial Take That to Jo/Laurie shippers. Alcott showed NO mercy to her fans' demands of having Jo marry Laurie -- a LikeBrotherAndSister speech, an IllGirl who chases all thoughts of other love from Jo's mind, Jo marrying her ''other'' best male friend and beta-reader (the aforementioned Bhaer) when she's "back", and a LastMinuteHookUp for Laurie with Jo's ''[[TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry little sister]]'' Amy. According to the Introduction to the Penguin Classics edition of the book, Louisa May Alcott wrote the following to a friend, Alf Whitman:

Added DiffLines:

** Due several changes that contradicted the books, Jaime/Brienne is slowly sinking in Season 6. Though the two are still in good terms, Jaime is [[BrotherSisterIncest still in love with Cersei]] despite seeing her flaws and is completely oblivious about her affair with Lancel whereas Brienne is shipped with Tormund after their small encounter at Castle Black in "Book of the Stranger".
