* [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]][=/=]MarzGurl was sunk for good when Lewis's girlfriend, Iron Liz, became a part of his show. Though most fans seem to like Liz, so this isn't the [[DieForOurShip problem]] it would be in other fandoms.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' fans always treated Madoka/Homura as the capital ship above and beyond all others, and were delighted by the mountains of ShipTease ''[[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion Rebellion]]'' provided. Until the ending, when [[spoiler:Homura's ProtagonistJourneyToVillain is completed and she imprisons Madoka]], making any likelihood of them getting together extremely slim.

Furthermore, [[WordOfGod Gen Urobuchi]] has stated in an interview that Homura's feelings for Madoka are platonic rather than romantic.

** The final chapter sinks [[spoiler:Ichigo x Rukia]] while making [[spoiler:Ichigo x Orihime and Renji x Rukia]] canon. The ship had already been sunk [[http://tumblrhalix.tumblr.com/post/65221770745/ichinoue in some past interviews]], and it was further torpedoed [[https://pepperrikka.tumblr.com/post/152761199129/httpstwittercomjumpolicestatus79447710019118 in a TV show]] where one of Kubo's editors referred to [[spoiler: Rukia]] with the word ''aibou'' (implying non-romantic partnership) and to [[spoiler:Orihime]] with the word ''heroine'' (used in Japan to refer to the LoveInterest)

** A suversion. "The Return" and "Jail Break" initially 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.]] However, the pairing has gained a bit of a second wind in the wake of [[spoiler:Peridot's HeelFaceTurn and Lapis being freed from Malachite. It helps that the two are now roommates living in Greg's barn.]]

** One particular and prominent ship, [[spoiler:Naruto/Sakura]], was sunk in a spectacular fashion in the finale. First when it was revealed [[spoiler:that they ended up hooking 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/OneYear'', not only are all pairings between [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Yu and Yukiko]] (and later, [[BetaCouple Kanji and Naoto]]) and people besides each other ruled out by their becoming couples, but a few pairings are sunk apart from that.
** Yu reveals that when Nanako made him accept her ChildhoodMarriagePromise in the ending, he'd been put on the spot, and hoped she'd grow out of it.
** When Chie learns that Kou likes her, she admits that she's flattered, but notes that there's no way the relationship will work out if Kou can't even talk to her.
** Rise's career as an IdolSinger, which preludes anything that even ''suggests'' that the idol is in a relationship, essentially precludes any possibility of them having a relationship.

* 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, especially with her ArchEnemy [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Amélie "Widowmaker" Lacroix.]]
