** [[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, Creator/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]]. However, by the episode "[[Recap/SouthParkS21E2PutItDown Put It Down]]." they've started [[spoiler:to have actually [[OfficialCouple began dating]]]].

* ''Manga/SoulEater'' has Crona/Death the Kid. Although they only interact twice in the anime and once in the manga, it's a rather popular pairing in the fandom. And then the end of the manga provides some kind of fanfic fodder by clarifying that [[spoiler: in a strictly technical sense they are rather similar, having both been raised for the specific purpose of replacing/counteracting the Mad God Asura. However, Kid and Crona never actually acknowledge this similarity (Death does so only to remark that he's as bad as Medusa), and Crona ends up trapped on the moon.]] So, the ship is actually no closer than before.

Although they see each all of three times, and never say a word to each other, a handful of strategically timed back to back shots of each other, a moment where they actually stand next to each other, a significant notice by Enjolras of her entrance into the cafe, and the shot of him sheding a tear as she[[spoiler: dies]] seem to have given the fan enough material for it to become one of the biggest ships in the fandom.

** The controversial fanfic ''FanFic/InThisWorldAndTheNext'' has a few examples. Oliver Wood winds up dating Penelope Clearwater after [[RonTheDeathEater Percy turns evil]] [[spoiler: He is kind of a dick to his family until near the end of the series]], though the two are in different houses and are unlikely to have known each other. But that pairing is downright normal compared to some of the other ones that [[ShipperOnDeck Harry and Hermione]] [[InvokedTrope create]]. In their zeal to ensure that Remus and Tonks wind up together so that Teddy can be born, Sirius Black ends up having some romantic moments with Charity Burbage. [[CrackPairing Even more ridiculous]] is that Neville somehow falls for Millicent Bulstrode, and the feeling is mutual. If ForWantOfANail were not in full effect, the two would most likely have hated each other's guts, assuming that they had any interactions at all.

** Lapis/Peridot used to be seen as this before the third season, the closest they got to interacting was just being being in the same scene.

** From ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', there is an absurdly high amount of fans that ship the male and the female protagonist together. That is impossible since they literally can't exist at the same time. The female MC is also paired a lot with [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} the next game's]] hero but that also would be impossible, [[spoiler:since ''Persona 3'' ends with the protagonist's HeroicSacrifice]]. Even in [[VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth the one game]] where [[RealityBreakingParadox a time-space paradox]] [[TimeTravel brings together]] the casts of both titles and the ''P3'' group ''isn't'' from a time after the events of their game (unlike the ''[[VideoGame/Persona4Arena Arena]]'' [[VideoGame/Persona4ArenaUltimax duology]]), the male protagonist is used to represent ''Persona 3'' instead of the female one.

** Erika and Sabrina have fans. They are both [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Kanto]] Gym Leaders (or at least Sabrina was until she became a Pokéstar Studios actress by ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' [[note]]though she's still counted among the Kanto Leaders in the Pokémon World Tournament; then again, so is Giovanni[[/note]]) but don't interact. The ship seems to have sparked due to Erika seeming AmbiguouslyGay to many players (has a female-only gym, gives out a rainbow badge, etc) and Sabrina is from the same region from her. OppositesAttract also applies to them.
** Partnering off Sabrina with Johto Gym Leader Morty, which appears to be the most popular of Sabrina's scant het options, is no better, rooted mainly in similar characteristics (PsychicPowers [[note]]presumably in Morty's case, as his title is "The Mystic Seer of the Future"[[/note]] and outwardly opposing but inwardly friendly personalities) and, possibly, a MythologyGag to the Haunter Sabrina befriended in the anime by means of Morty's Gengar.

** The ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]'' fandom was quite fond of Wil/Florina for a while.
** Most couples in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' are like this. Good luck finding evidence for why Dew got hooked up with [[ActionGirl Aira]], [[FanPreferredCouple or why]] Levin would go for [[GenkiGirl Tiltyu]] outside of the RelationshipValues. Hilariously, Finn/Raquesis is one of these, despite the fact it's heavily implied to be ''canon'' in the {{interquel}}. Things make more sense in the second half of the game, but that doesn't mean couples like [[MysticalWaif Yuria]]/[[BlackKnight Aless]] (or [[MysticalWaif Yuria]]/ANYONE besides [[BrotherSisterIncest Celice]] for that matter) don't happen.
** Same goes for several couples in later games. 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 each other. 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.
** ''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.

They are both [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Kanto]] Gym Leaders (or at least Sabrina was until she became a Pokéstar Studios actress by ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' [[note]]though she's still counted among the Kanto Leaders in the Pokémon World Tournament; then again, so is Giovanni[[/note]]) but don't interact. The ship seems to have sparked due to Erika seeming AmbiguouslyGay to many players (has a female-only gym, gives out a rainbow badge, etc) and Sabrina is from the same region from her. OppositesAttract also applies to them.
**
Partnering off Sabrina with Johto Gym Leader Morty, which appears to be the most popular of Sabrina's scant het options, is no better, rooted mainly in similar characteristics (PsychicPowers [[note]]presumably in Morty's case, as his title is "The Mystic Seer of the Future"[[/note]] and outwardly opposing but inwardly friendly personalities) and, possibly, a MythologyGag to the Haunter Sabrina befriended in the anime by means of Morty's Gengar.

** Guzma and the player character's mother in ''Sun and Moon'' occasionally pops up. They don't interact but many think they'd go good together or want to see Guzma as Eilio/Selene's step-father.

*** Same goes for several couples in later games. 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.

** Despitebeing friends in their source game, Aerith and Tifa have literally no interactions in ''Kingdom Hearts''. It's even vague whether Tifa is a physical person or a figment of Cloud's light. Still, Aerith/Tifa is a moderately popular pairing. Fans who shipped them in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' jumped ship due to the fact Aerith being perfectly alive and healthy means the ship can thrive.



* Due to PairTheSpares, Waluigi and Rosalina in ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' are often portrayed as a couple.

Due to PairTheSpares, Waluigi and Rosalina in ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' are often portrayed as a couple.couple. Mario has Peach, Luigi has Daisy, Wario has either Mona or Captain Syrup depending on the fan's preference, so who can Rosalina be shipped with? Waluigi obviously. The UglyMansHotWife and OppositesAttract trops also boosted them into popularity.
** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' is the first mainline 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.



* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'' has [[ProfessionalKiller Daud]] and [[SexyPriest Teague]] [[TheStrategist Martin]], who have never met in-game. Also, [[spoiler:Martin is dead by the end of the game and Daud ''could'' be dead, depending on the player's choices]]. Quite a few people ship them anyway.

* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', TheHero Touma and the Misaka's TeamNormal Saten get paired in a surprising amount in fanfics, despite the fact that they've never even met in canon. Probably because they're both normal (mostly).

* Strangely enough, one of the more popular pairings in Wrestling/{{WWE}} since 2016 Wrestling/SamiZayn and Wrestling/FinnBalor was this kind of ship. This was fueled mostly by their noncanonical real-life interactions on social media and at [[Wrestling/{{WWENXT}} NXT]] house shows, which would confuse ANYONE who just follows [[WordOfGod official WWE TV programming]]. Aside from sharing a stage with six other people and [[AndYourLittleDogToo Seth Rollins making a single throwaway remark at Finn about beating up "your little friend Sami Zayn"]], Finn and Sami have yet to cross paths in {{kayfabe}} as of mid- to late 2017.
