** The ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade Blazing Sword]]'' fandom was quite fond of Wil/Florina for a while.

to:

** The ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade Blazing Sword]]'' fandom was quite fond of Wil/Florina for a while. They ''do'' speak in the chapter where they're both recruited, and Wil acts friendly to her... but after that, they have no more interactions with each other.


Added DiffLines:

*** Also in ''Echoes'', people who dislike the canon Clive/Mathilda occasionally ship Mathilda/Sonya (if they don't like Mathilda/Clair). Like Catria and Faye, the two of them aren't even in the same armies, and there's no indication that Mathilda and Sonya even know that the other exists.

** Early on, the fandom seeme to ship Jesse with Quinn a lot, despite having only spoken once.

** Early on, the fandom seeme seemed to ship Jesse with Quinn a lot, despite having only spoken once.once (to be fair, at the time, he was calling her "the ghost of Grace Kelly," and it would have followed the PairtheSpares trope, since they are the spares to Finn and Rachel's pairing).

Added DiffLines:

* ''VisualNovel/MonsterProm'': The four playable characters have an unclear relationship with each other, and only interact very tangentially in special events during multiplayer events, but ships between them aren't uncommon, with Oz/Brian in particular having developed a solid fanbase.

** To be honest, even Korrasami started that way. Korra and Asami barely spoke through first two seasons, and it seems that Bryke noticed that too, making Korra and Asami good friends in season 3.

* You can count on one hand the number of times that Prowl and Jazz, in any version of ''Franchise/TransformersGenerationOne'', interacted in any significant way - and according to FFN, they're the biggest pairing in the whole franchise. It's at the point where, if one of them exists in a universe and the other doesn't, people will write fics that [[CanonImmigrant add a functionally-identical counterpart to the other one to that universe]] to facilitate maintaining the ship. It seems to arise from the idea that Jazz's personality (party animal) and Prowl's (TheSpock) might have some interesting interactions, and from the fact that they're both white cars from the same year.

For a decent period, the pairing had one of the most fervent listings on the HoYay page for ''Transformers''... despite having literally no actual examples.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}}'': For all the popularity that the Ōtengu and Yōko ship receives among the fandom, canonically they neither meet nor are mentioned in either's in-game recollections. In fact, due to the game's limited plotline yet [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters large cast]], many of the game's popular pairings never meet in canon.

** There's an incredibly large number of slash fic pairing [[InsufferableGenius Percy Weasley]] and [[LoveableJock Oliver Wood]] despite the two having no interaction in canon. They are both Gryffindor boys in the same year so it's probable they do know each other, but what kind of relationship they have (if any) is not part of any book.

* Some consider Heidi and Cartman's relationship, first developed in Season 20, as an example of this trope. While the two characters have a long list of small, incidental interactions in previous episodes, none of them contributed to the narrative, leading many fans to ignore these as coincidental or only retroactively significant. These smaller interactions, however, also lead to fans shipping them for over ten years before they became linked officially.

* ''Anime/OsomatsuSan'' fandom has Ichimatsu/Nyaa, who are put together based on [[ThemePairing cat theme]] alone. She also gets paired up with Choromatsu and Osomatsu a fair bit: the former since he goes to her concerts, the latter because he crashed a handshake event Choromatsu went to (and did a faux-declaration of love while he was at it). Nyaa hasn't talked to any of the brothers personally, and the one time she sees them after work is when [[spoiler:she prays for them at their funeral in season 2]]. She even goes as far as to lampshade it:
-->"I know I haven't hung out with you guys that much, but [[spoiler:I hope you find peace in the next world]]."
