** Captain Janeway/Dr. Crusher slash fics are surprisingly common despite the characters having never met in canon. Even when Janeway appeared in the TNG movie ''Nemesis''.

* Tom and Janna is somewhat popular in ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', even though the two have never met. They are actually somewhat similar, as Janna is interested in the occult, while Tom is a demon. The Season 3 intro shows them in the same place for the first time.

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'':
** There is a fanbase dedicated to Greed/Riza. Who have appeared in the same CHAPTER maybe all of twice.
** ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' fans sometimes ship Alfons and Alphonse (usually with [[OneTrueThreesome Edward]] [[IncestYayShipping involved]]), which is borderline [[ScrewYourself selfcest]] considering that [[spoiler:Alfons is Al's Earth counterpart from the other side of the Gate]]. The two never interact in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemistTheConquerorOfShamballa'' because [[spoiler:Alfons dies shortly before they can]].

*** Alternatively some like Giovanni and Jessie's MissingMom, Miyamoto, as it gives an excuse to why Giovanni keeps Jessie around and explains who her unknown dad is. Miyamoto was a Team Rocket member but is never seen interacting with Giovanni, though she was close with his mother.

** 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 [[CanonDiscontinuity was replaced]] with Kiara in ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'', 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 and 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.

* ''Literature/WarriorCats'':
** Scourge/Ashfur is one of the more popular slash pairings, but they have nothing to do with each other. The only time they might meet is in ''The Darkest Hour'', when Ashfur (then Ashpaw) is waiting, with the rest of the forest cats, for Firestar's order to attack Scourge's group. They certainly never single each other out.

*** 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 ([[AnIcePerson one whom]], humorously enough, Lance's [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons type specialty]] would put him at a great disadvantage against).

* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' is the first mainline ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' game to feature Pauline, Mario's original girlfriend from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'', in years. Pauline has been subject to ''a lot'' of DieForOurShip by Mario/Peach fans both due to being Mario's ex and due to her more provocative design. In ''Odyssey'', Pauline is the mayor of New Donk City and dresses in a red suit instead of a [[LadyInRed red dress]]. Fans didn't miss how well this matched with Peach's bridal outfit or how they're both women in power. Within a few days of the E3 2017 reveal, there was a lot of fanart of them together.



* ''WebVideo/DontHugMeImScared''. In the first one, a notepad sings about creativity, and in the second one, a clock sings about time and schedules. They have never officially met. At least a week after the second one was posted, the ''[[OneTruePairing entire fandom shipped them together]].'' Seriously. Each video contains a new BigBad but fans instantly thought the first two [[FoeYayShipping would have a good love-hate relationship]].

** [[DeadpanSnarker Craig]]/[[NervousWreck Tweek]] is the most popular pairing after Stan/Kyle and [[FoeYay Cartman/Kyle]]. Though the two are sometimes shown in the same group of friends, in 18 seasons there is only one episode where they directly interact (because the other boys trick them into [[FoeYay fighting each other]]). Eventually, TreyParkerAndMattStone became aware of this pairing and gave Tweek and Craig their own OhCrapThereAreFanficsOfUs episode, "[[Recap/SouthParkS19E6TweekXCraig Tweek x Craig]]." [[spoiler:It ends with them giving into peer pressure and feigning a relationship]].

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'' has Genny and Saber, who were often shipped in the original game despite having no interactions (granted, virtually nobody had any interactions with eachother in that game), due to Genny's ending mentioning she fell in love with a comrade and Saber's ending mentioning him marrying an unnamed woman. The remake [[ShipSinking sunk]] this somewhat: it revealed Genny is only 15 and Saber is 34, all [[OfficialCouple Official Couples]] from the original got support conversations while Genny and Saber didn't, and other characters now marry unnamed people in their endings making Genny's and Saber's stand out less. However, Genny does mention in an optional conversation that she LikesOlderMen, possibly as a reference to the pairing.
*** In the remake, fans who feel bad for Faye's unrequited feelings for Alm often ship her with other characters, most of whom she never speaks to. She's sometimes shipped with Catria, someone who isn't even supposed to be in the same party as Faye, and even if use the GuideDangIt method to get Faye into Celica's party, she and Catria still never interact.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'':Numbuh 86 and Numbuh 60 is a rather popular ship, despite the fact that they never really had any onscreen interaction. (The closest was Operation: T.R.A.I.N.I.N.G., when Arctic Base got a distress signal from Moonbase. And even that turned out to be just Father disguised as Numbuh 86.)

** Robb/Myrcella also get paired up - often as a BetaCouple in stories focused on his siblings - despite never having met and that their families are archenemies.
