** There is also a Shipping War between "Bumblebee" (Yang Xiao Long/Blake Belladonna) and "Eclipse" or "Black Sun" (Sun Wukong/Blake Belladonna) after the Volume 3 finale [[spoiler:had Adam refer to Yang as someone Blake loves and Yang act heartbroken after being abandoned by Blake]]. This gave hope to the shippers of Bumblebee, the most popular fan pairing, that they could actually beat out the seemingly obvious canon of Black Sun. Unfortunately, this lead to fans on both sides getting very defensive over their ship's chances and absolutely hating the other. Things get worse when the Volume 4's soundtrack contains a love song called "Bmblb", which is clearly titled with Blake and Yang's ship in mind, that hints to be written from Yang's perspective about Blake and that pretty much added more fuel to the fire. Also from Volume 4 was "Like Morning Follows Night," which seems to be about Sun and Blake. Now both ships have songs about them....

Unfortunately, this lead to fans on both sides getting very defensive over their ship's chances and absolutely hating the other. Tensions rose when a volume 4 song "Like Morning follows Night" was released with the focus on Blake and Sun's relationship. Things get worse when the Volume 4's soundtrack contains a love song called "Bmblb", which is clearly titled with Blake and Yang's ship in mind, that hints to be written from Yang's perspective about Blake and that pretty much Blake. However, the song was not originally intended for the show or soundtrack, but was added last minute as an injury delayed the release of Volume 4's soundtrack, allowing time to compose the song. Unsurprisngly this clarification has only poured more fuel to on the fire. Also from Volume 4 was "Like Morning Follows Night," which seems to be about Sun and Blake. Now both ships have songs about them....fire.

Many fans {{ship|ping}}. Some of them have [[{{OTP}} a distinct ship that they like over all others]], while some of them support several, sometimes contradictory, pairings. Some of them like to debate a pairing while keeping in mind its status in {{canon}}, while some of them discuss it [[ShippingGoggles believing their pairing]] ''is'' {{canon}} (or, in the case of those who argue over what's going to happen like they think they're pooling money for a bet, will inevitably be). [[{{GIFT}} Now throw in the power of the Internet to connect everybody (and everybody's opinions) with everybody else…]]

** And now, from the first episode of Volume 5, we have two new ships: Rose Garden, which is Oscar/Ruby, and Changing Colours, which is Blake/Ilia. Meaning that the two people most subject to shipping, Ruby and Blake, now are ''both'' involved in a three way ship war. Dear Lord, this fandom has very little in the way of sanity.....

These {{Flame War}}s are known as Shipping Wars: [[FanDumb verbal arguments between people with different opinions about romantic relationships between fictional characters]], though sometimes it can include real person fiction. There are those who bash whoever doesn't like their ship of choice, those who bash whoever likes a certain ship, and those who do both, usually basing their attacks on how canon/{{Fanon}} the discussed ship is. The fact that most ships really aren't canon and will never be is usually ignored. Particular hatred for a pairing or a character who gets in the way of a pairing manifests in the form of DieForOurShip in fic, or accusations of CanonSue status in analysis. Alternatively, fans might pair that character with another character, getting him or her out of the way of their favorite ship. This creates "alliances" between different shippers called ShipMates.

Common victims include PlatonicLifePartners, HeterosexualLifePartners, and LovelyAngels. On one hand, [[ShippingGoggles lots of fans see]] {{Subtext}}, hints, and evidence [[AccidentalInnuendo where there really isn't]]; on the other, if there ''is'' some degree of subtext, other fans will adamantly refuse to see it and insult those who do. The DracoInLeatherPants also tends to be [[LauncherOfAThousandShips paired up a lot, and Shipping Wars erupt when deciding to whom he belongs.]] Often complicated by TheILoveYouStigma.
