* There even appear to be those who quietly ship Lin with the acupuncturist from season three, even though he doesn't play a particularly big role. Seems those needles just lend themselves to the imagination.

** Aside from Dana, the most popular character to ship Maureen with is Dark Owl Records owner Michelle Nguyen, who has even less connections with her. ''The April Monologues'' however does give some ShipTease, where it's implied that Michelle has a little crush on Maureen (repeatedly talking about her coming to the store, and giving Maureen her 'hopcore' CD that Michelle previously said she couldn't imagine letting anyone else listen to it).

** Azula and Toph are starting to gain a small fanbase. The two only talk once, in "The Day of the Black Sun", when Azula proves she can get past Toph's LivingLieDetector ability. After being asked "Who is Lin's father?" one too many times, one of the writers decided that [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m41n0muX841rptk5lo1_1280.jpg it's Azula.]] That caused a boost in fans.

* Most ships in the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime fandom are nevermets, have something to do with filler characters, or with characters who have had little interaction with each other. [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Shipping:List_of_anime_shippings Here]] is a long list of the anime's ships, including "never-mets". Most of them, the characters only interacted during one episode; James saves Cilan once, James/Cilan is born; Max talks to Misty, Max/Misty is born; and so on.

** Also from ''The Lion King'' is Kopa/Vitani. It's one of the most popular ships in the fandom and they're not even in the same ''continuity'' together. The ship comes from the concept that Kopa, Simba's cub from a series of books that was replaced with Kiara in ''Disney/TheLionKingII'', was friends with Vitani (though this would probably make Vitani older than she should be if Kopa disappeared before Kiara's birth). It's a popular ToyShip though fanworks that don't have Kopa be killed as a cub often have them reunite as adults, and thus it's the popular [[ShipMates Ship Mate]] to Kovu/Kiara.

* Among the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' shippers, one of the most popular choice when pairing [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Bethany]] ([[IncestYayShipping when it's not with her brother/sister]]) is [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Alistair]], despite the two having, at most, one scene together (and it's ''not'' a romantic one).having only two or three (depending on how you count) scenes together.

Added DiffLines:

** For girl/girl ships, there is Rey/Captain Phasma and Rey/Jessika Pava (a female X-Wing pilot with maybe one minute of screen time). Rey is never in a scene with either of them, but this probably stems from the fact that she only directly interacts with are Leia and Maz Kanata who are both much older than her (and in Maz's case, a completely different species).

* ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'': Two fairly common ships that involve Intern [[spoiler:later Mayor]] [[MauveShirt Dana]] are Dana/Intern Maureen and Dana/Intern Vithya. There is very little connections between them aside from being interns at Night Vale Community Radio, they haven't interacted in the narrative itself, and Vithya was only in one episode.
** Shipping [[LittleMissBadass Tamika Flynn]] with Cecil's niece Janice occasionally pops up as well, though they have even less connections than the interns.
