* ''GetBackers'': One-sided [[PsychoForHire Takuma Fudou]] → Ban Midou. Definitely a messed up, AxCrazy ship... but then again, the manga itself makes Fudou's homoerotic obsession with Ban pretty much canon (along with Ban's nonchalant, annoyed attitude towards Fudou). It probably doesn't help that Fudou actually even comes out and says that he's pissed off that Ban only has eyes for Ginji, and that he wants Ban to [[GreenEyedMonster notice and pay attention to him instead]].

** Almost anyone in Lelouch's UnwantedHarem → Lelouch seem to apply, too, depending on other shipping preferences.Gino → Suzaku is popular too. **Nina → Euphie is canon and Rolo → Lelouch pretty heavily implied. On a more squicky note, [[spoiler: V.V. → Charles]] is a popular interpretation.

** There's another faction that believes the opposite, with Dean--the series' [[TroubledButCute troubled]], [[HeroicSelfDeprecation self-loathing]] [[ExtremeDoormat family doormat]]--pining after the [[TheStoic emotionless]] [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angel]] Castiel. It was made murky later on when Castiel slowly turns human and actually gains emotions, but once [[StatusQuoIsGod Castiel is re-"angelfied" and his faith in God restored]], he sees no problem in leaving Dean to fly off to Heaven. In Season 6, he only appeared when he needs something from Dean, and Dean does not seem to have forgiven him.

** As of season 10 it's also become quite common for people to see Crowley as having an unrequited love for Dean, who may have a mutual love with Castiel. Despite initially seeming like a CrackShip, the show definitely portrays Crowley's reaction to Dean [[spoiler:becoming human again after her was a demon, and then outright choosing to partner with Castiel over him later on]] as being comparable to a dumped lover, and the triangle is paralleled to the Abbadon->Cain/Colette LoveTriangle with Crowley associated with Abbadon.

* ''XMenEvolution'': The [[TheSnarkKnight Rogue]]/[[TheStoic Scott]] pairing is sometimes written this way. This one's got canon support, though: Rogue's one-sided crush on Scott as seen in the show was seen as being much more interesting than Scott and Jean's relationship.

*** [[spoiler:As of the finale, though, Sasuke/Sakura and Naruto/Hinata subvert this and become canon. Naruto/Sakura becomes firmly ShipSinking.]]
** And then there's the people who ship Sasuke → Hinata for the sheer irony of it.

* In the ''InazumaEleven'' fandom, several pairs of the form "<character> → Endou" seem to be quite popular, probably because 1) multiple characters in-series have been on record constantly musing about the positive influences he's had on their lives and 2) Endou is a [[ObliviousToLove completely oblivious]] ChasteHero who [[AllLovingHero gets along great with everyone]].
* In ''{{Rift}}'', WordOfGod has hinted that [[RebelliousPrincess Uriel]] [[PerkyGoth Chuluun's]] [[LesYay crush on]] [[ProfessionalKillers Kira Thanos]] is canon. Whether or not Kira reciprocates, on the other hand, is a matter of debate.

* It's highly recognized in the ''Mega Man'' fandom that Ciel of ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' has very blatant feelings for the [[{{Badass}} eponymous hero]], regardless of her being human and his being a [[strike:Reploid]] highly-advanced robot. It's also generally accepted that most of it is probably unrequited due to Zero's ''[[IronWoobie very]]'' [[IronWoobie broken past]] (although there're shades of [[ChasteHero chastity]] there, too). However, there's still the fact that Zero's very willing to ''die fighting for her ideals,'' [[spoiler:and ''he does''.]] [[TheWoobie You can't help but feel sorry for the poor girl...]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' [[DiscoDan Milla]] [[FriendToAllChildren Vodello]] is hinted to have feelings for [[TheSpock Sasha]] [[TheStoic Nein]], and a cut scene involves Milla fantasizing a makeout session with him, but within the game there is no evidence that he sees her as more than a friend and colleague.
** It's unclear whether that's a fantasy or a memory...
