*** Speaking of Elite Four members, there's the rather niche pairing of Lance and Lorelei. Despite being part of the Indigo League E4 in [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue the original games and their remakes]], the two have no interaction whatsoever (compare this to their ''[[Manga/PokemonAdventures Adventures]]'' counterparts), and while Lance goes on to become the Champion during [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver the three year interim]], Lorelei just vanishes with no official confirmation on her whereabouts. [[note]]''[=FireRed/LeafGreen=]'' implies she may have retired between games to defend her home, the Sevii Islands, from remnants of Team Rocket.[[/note]] Aside of being cool and somewhat arrogant personality-wise, fans of Lance/Lorelei simply think they look good together and like the idea of Lance with another strong Trainer (even though, humorously enough, Lance's [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons type specialty]] would put him at a great disadvantage against [[AnIcePerson Lorelei]]).

** But the biggest offender by far is Bickslow and Lisanna. The sum total of their interactions throughout the series is the Thunder God Tribe greeting her when she [[spoilerreturns from Edolas]] and when she happens to be watching the Grand Magic Games with said team. Fanon insists they're friends because they both enjoy [[ShipperOnDeck trolling Elfman and Evergreen]] (though [[CannotSpitItOut anyone with eyes does]]), but objectively, the ship is just there to PairTheSpares with Elfman/Evergreen and Laxus/Mirajane and as ShipMates to [[DieForOurShip keep her away from Natsu.]]

** Erika and Sabrina have fans.

** Lapis/Peridot is an oddly common ship given the closest they've gotten to interacting [[spoiler:before the third season, anyway,]] is being in the same shots. This is largely due to them being the only known [[spoiler:Homeworld gems]] for a while until Jasper showed up.

** Blue Pearl, Yellow Pearl, and Pearl never interacted - heck, Blue Pearl doesn't even speak! - however fans instantly began shipping combinations of them together.
** Greg/Jasper (termed "Grasper") is a somewhat common ship - not only have they never interacted, but one of them is an alien warlord with an interest in wiping out the other's entire species. It seems to mostly stem from a mix of PairTheSpares and Greg's well-established love of women with Jasper's build.
** Jasper and Pearl has a following despite the extremely minimum interaction between them in season 1. Many fans enjoy the contrast in their characters and their size difference.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/YonaOfTheDawn'': The characters of Lili and Tae-woo are shipped surprisingly often on Pixiv, despite that the characters have never met in canon. It may be due to their relation and similarities to the series' AlphaCouple of Yona and Hak; Lili being Yona's closest female friend and often being used to draw contrast to Yona's CharacterDevelopment, and Tae-woo being Hak's friend/little-brother figure, as well as the successor to his position as general of the Wind Tribe. It may also come down to the characters appearing to be (though not confirmed to be) the same age, and having similar blue-clothed/dark-haired aesthetics.

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' has Mila/Sara, the favorite ship involving women of the fandom. They have literally interacted once, very shortly in episode 9, but fans absolutely love them together. They are though, implied to have met before, since Sara is ranked 4th and Mila 3rd in women's Figure Skating.

*** Cynthia finds herself paired up with Diantha, the [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Kalos]] region Champion, for similar reasons, being cultured, graceful, elite-level Trainers with no overarching Type theme to their teams. (Diantha also has a pseudo-legendary in Goodra, though her signature Pokémon is actually Gardevoir.) Both women appear to share fashion styles, too, with Diantha wearing an all-white outfit to contrast Cynthia's black ensemble.

*** Same goes for several couples in later game. In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]'' in particular, ignoring whatever subtext might be present in supports (in addition to, again, RelationshipValues), one may have a tough time trying to find out why [[HotBlooded Hector]] would want to hook up with [[ShrinkingViolet Florina]], or figuring out whether or not if [[ILetGwenStacyDie Matthew]]'s feelings about [[GenkiGirl Serra]] really do change for the better, to list some examples.
** Merric and Linde are an extremely popular pairing in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia the Akaneia games]], despite the fact that, until the remakes, they never interacted with eachother. And in said remake, they get exactly ''one'' conversation together. It's often assumed that Merric is the one Linde is said to be in love with in her epilogue in ''Mystery of the Emblem'', even though said epilogue never mentioned anyone specifically.

** A fair number of people pair Stan's sister Shelley and Kenny's brother Kevin, most likely because they appear to be around the same age, have braces, and are older siblings of two of the main boys. These characters have had literally zero interaction and the number of spoken lines Kevin has had during 19 seasons can be counted on one hand.

** Kenny/Bebe is a surprisingly popular straight pairing (for either character), but in the show, the two never interact, because [[GirlsHaveCooties Kenny is only friends with boys, and Bebe only friends with girls]]. This is probably because Kenny is a LovableSexManiac while Bebe has a [[NeverLiveItDown reputation]] of being a slut.

** The only time Zexion and Demyx ever say a thing about each other was in ''3Days''. Zexion mentions Demyx is [[LazyBum being completely useless to the Organization]] and gives a mission for you two, later Demyx mentions that Zexion is annoying. That obviously meant they are not friends, but [[ShippingGoggles some shippers thought]] that was [[OppositesAttract just perfect]]. (Also, since the Organization members have numbers, it may help that Demyx is No. IX and Zexion is No. VI.)

** [[MsFanservice Karen]]/[[LargeHam Sidney]], both Dark-type specialized Elite Four members. Karen/Will is also pretty popular, and also Karen/Lance and Karen/Grimsley. It's pretty much said that [[LauncherOfAThousandShips everyone wants Karen]].
** Cynthia/Steven Stone is mildly popular in the fanbase. They both are/were Champions of their respective regions ([[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Sinnoh]] and [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Hoenn]]) and their signature Mons are pseudo-legendaries (Garchomp and Metagross), and that's it.
