*** That final episode ended with a LastMinuteKiss between Carly and Freddie, initiated by ''Carly'', and celebrated by Freddie. Despite this seemingly obvious TheyDo ending, the writers knew they had an upcoming SpinOff, named ''SamAndCat'', involving the now third wheel, and thus decided to keep teasing Sam/Freddie shippers in the hope they would keep watching the new show in the hope that Freddie would come back to that show to sink Creddie and confirm Seddie. In one episode, Freddie did guest-star, and there were a few teases, but it still remained unresolved. And with the sudden cancellation of the series, it'll appear to stay that way forever.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Arya/Gendry get a fair bit of teasing, despite their young ages, as they forge an incredibly close friendship, Arya checks him out when he's shirtless and [[spoiler: even tells him that he could "be her family", although the wording didn't make it clear whether she had deeper feelings for him or just didn't want to lose her only friend.

** The season three finale was basically a relentless stream of FoeYay teasing between the Doctor and the Master, ranging from the Master's orgasmic "I like it when you use my name" to the Doctor cradling the Master in his arms, sobbing, as he [[spoiler:begs him not to die]].

** The Eleventh Doctor and Amy was frequently teased, despite Amy's first episode ending on the night before her wedding. Before Rory became a companion too, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E5FleshAndStone Amy kissed the Doctor and tried to seduce him]], and while the ship appeared to be "sunk" in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E7AmysChoice "Amy's Choice"]], it was brought back to the surface when Rory died a few episodes later, only to be re-sunk when Rory came back to the life for the season finale. Even after Amy and Rory got married, there was still a ton of ship teasing, particularly in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E7AGoodManGoesToWar A Good Man goes to War]]", where it was implied multiple times that Melody Pond was the daughter of The Doctor and Amy.
** Clara Oswald and the Eleventh Doctor have bucket loads of ShipTease. From accidental hugging to hand holding to the Doctor calling Clara "perfect" to a Cyber-converted Doctor confessing his love to her to [[ItMakesSenseInContext the Doctor telling her to take her clothes off after a]] SuggestiveCollision. Utterly sunk (at least, so it appeared at first ...) when the Eleventh Doctor regenerated into a very alien, spidery old man who constantly insults her appearance (not that Eleven never did, usually in very obvious denial), but that didn't stop Twelve managing to add his own piece of ShipTease to the sunken Clara[=/=]Eleven ship when Twelve remarked to Clara that "he wasn't her boyfriend", but not in the sense that Clara thought that way - it was ''Eleven'' who made that mistake.

Amy. She wasn't, of course, and much of the previous ShipTease turned out to be just mistakes due to context. For example, Amy told the Doctor she was pregnant before Rory, implying that the baby might be the Doctor's. It's eventually explained that Amy knew it was Rory's, but the baby was conceived on the TARDIS, and Amy was worried what effect that would have.

From accidental hugging to hand holding to the Doctor calling Clara "perfect" to a Cyber-converted Doctor confessing his love to her to [[ItMakesSenseInContext the Doctor telling her to take her clothes off after a]] SuggestiveCollision. Utterly sunk (at least, so it appeared at first ...first...) when the Eleventh Doctor regenerated into a very alien, spidery old man who constantly insults her appearance (not that Eleven never did, usually in very obvious denial), but that denial).

** Although Twelve would be caught dead before you'd get a compliment or traditional flirt out of him, due to both lacking interpersonal skills and an aversion toward empty pleasantries of any sort, there have always been subtle indications that he might [[AnchoredShip still harbor some of these feelings]], having merely chosen not act on them out of the cynicism born from seeing many generations of humans live and die during his stay on Trenzalore, or a mistaken impression that she didn't want him anymore. He's always trying to show off to Clara, tends extremely competitive when anyone else does, sends many [[LongingLook forlorn glances]] [[LongingLook her way]] whenever he's in a distraught mood for any reason, is ''very'' blatantly flattered when he mistakenly assumed that Clara is dating an Eleven-lookalike, frequent states that that he needs her, at one point outright referred to one of their trips as a "date" once she was out of earshot, and then there's the incredibly UST-filled "Mummy on the orient Express"... Doesn't help that the narrative draws parallels between their relationship, the romance between Robin Hood and Marian, the interspecies-marriage between Vashtra and Jenny, and Elizabeth and Darcy of "Pride and Prejudice", or that the showrunner described a spectacular act of UndyingLoyalty on his part as "He says 'I love you perfectly'" in a recent interview. While not necessarily indicative of anything romantic in and of themselves, their intense devotion to each other despite their frequent clashes, his habit of calling her "boss" or repeating her name many times over, and his teary-eyed reactions to both their temporary partings have certainly done nothing to deter the shippers.

* He learned to do this on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. The Xander/Willow ship was hinted at from day one. But then in Season Two, Xander was paired up with Cordelia (taking everyone by surprise, but none more so than Xander and Cordelia), and Willow got together with Oz. The Xander/Willow ship seemed dead...only to rise again in Season 3, where Xander and Willow had to deal with a sudden mutual attraction that eventually destroyed the Xander/Cordelia relationship, and inflicted serious damage on the Willow/Oz one. Joss twisted the dagger with the very next episode, which depicted an AlternateUniverse where Xander and Willow were together...as vampires.

** Speaking of the comics, season 10 seems to be teasing the [[FanPreferredCouple ever popular]] Spuffy pairing. Whether this means the writers are planning on hooking them up for real or are just doing it to bring in more readers is anyone's guess.

* All of the possible pairings between two members of the study group in ''Series/{{Community}}'' have at one time or another been teased. Gets pretty crazy when even Abed/Pierce is given scene time with a montage of private moments set to music.
** Jeff/Annie is at the start of Season Three, not even being teased. It's like a giant neon sign saying "these two will hook up some time this year". ''Geography Of Global Conflict'' has a big moment, but there was an earlier one where Jeff's dream sequence includes a line about finally sleeping with Annie. [[SubvertedTrope And then they didn't]]. At this point, after five years of teasing, and the events of the fifth season finale, if these two do not [[OneTrueLove finally]] [[RelationshipUpgrade get together]], Harmon may have a riot on his hands from the fans of the pairing.
** Of course, you'd assume that the Troy/Abed ship teasing would lessen once Troy and Britta [[RelationshipUpgrade got together]] (after they'd received their own teasing in Season 3). But no, if the first few episodes of Season 4 are anything to go by, the teasing has only gotten worse. "Conventions of Space and Time" takes a lot of the previous teasing UpToEleven.

** Parodied to the point of deconstruction in "Paradigms of Human Memory". Annie confronts Jeff about the "Jeff-and-Annie of it all", only for Jeff to look at her as if she's crazy and express no knowledge of what she's talking about. As Annie explains, we cut to a montage of apparently romantic moments between Jeff and Annie set to Sara Bareilles 'Gravity' (itself a parody of a then-popular fan shipping video on YouTube). Afterwards, Jeff protests that she's reading too much into things and that you could hypothetically do the same with [[CrackPairing Pierce and Abed]]. We ''then'' see a montage of clearly-innocent moments between Pierce and Abed put to the exact same music and presented in the exact same way. While the show (via Abed) does acknowledge that there is clearly something going on between Jeff and Annie, the point is clearly made that not every moment a shipper views as ShipTease actually is so, and it's very easy for someone so inclined to layer any given moment with unintended levels of meaning based on their own desires and preconceptions.

** Annie and Abed get some ShipTease, most notably in the season 2 finale when they actually kiss. However, since every moment of ShipTease between them involves Abed intentionally invoking Jeff's archetype (in the season 2 finale, he was specifically [[Franchise/StarWars Han Solo]]), it's less that there's any real possibility of Annie/Abed and more that he just knows how to push her buttons.
