* In the ''VideoGame/SuperMario'' franchise, one popular ShipTease is Yoshi and Birdo, probably because they're both dinosaurs who are about the same size with one being male and the other being female. Birdo's gender is actually debatable since some sources say Birdo is actually a guy who thinks he's a girl, but there are many fans who believe her to be female, and most of those said fans love to ship her with Yoshi. When this shipping started, the jury's still out on it, but some say it was ''Mario Tennis'' on the Nintendo 64 that started it.

* ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' features Mario getting kissed by each of his female party members (we're assuming that [[spoiler:Vivian [[ShesAManinJapan is female]]]]) and no less than four times by Ms. Mowz (which makes Goombella jealous).[[note]]Ms. Mowz can also learn a special skill that allows her to kiss Mario ''at any time'' for [[IntimateHealing HP recovery]].[[/note]] [[spoiler:Vivian]] almost makes a love confession to Mario in the ending, but decides that [[ShipperOnDeck he and Peach would be a good couple]], and Goombella is about to tell Mario something she hadn't been able to express to him before in her last e-mail, but decides to save it for later. Peach has an almost romantic bond with TEC, especially when [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove educating him about human feelings]], and by the time [[spoiler:Grodus has him deleted for helping her get classified information for Mario, he declares his love for her just before shutting down (he gets better)]].

** Because Mario/Peach tends to sit in a strange place between OfficialCouple and ImpliedLoveInterest, the sheer number of ship teases between the two are too almost numerous to list. Luigi/Daisy is similar, but not as prominent.

*** Zelda acts very VideoGame/{{Tsundere}} towards Link in the beginning, because she resented [[spoiler:how he was chosen to be TheHero long before her powers could develop]]. Her diary states she does feel guilty for snapping at him, though it only makes her more angry with herself. After Link rescues her, [[RescueRomance she looks at him as though seeing him for the first time and soon starts getting to know him, realizing she was wrong to act distant and the two became inseperable]]. A sidequest reveals that she actually is in love with Link, as she turns down someone's love and tells them that she is already in love (with Link). Her love for him also [[spoiler: activates her dormant powers]]. This also ends up appeasing a bunch of Zelda/Link Shippers.

** However in the latest lead-up to the Sion remake, Riot has released a surprising amount of ShipTease between LeBlanc and Swain. Although hints of their association/relationship has been present in the lore since LeBlanc's League Judgement, this is the most highly visible reveal of their relationship directly by Riot. As if to make this association between the two champions more explicit, the latest skin for Leblanc is called Ravenborn Leblanc - featuring various elements that resemble Swain, including feathers that resemble his raven form's, a figurehead on Leblanc's staff that resembles Beatrice, and having new green particles that match Tyrant Swain's green coloring. This is also likely the only example of a champion skin being themed around another champion.

** ''Smash Bros WiiU / 3DS'' gives even more teasing, such as Peach and Zelda fighting over Link, [[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} Shulk]] smashing Link away to play with them ''both'', or [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Ike]] offering a flower to [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising Palutena]]

* Appears from time to time throughout the ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'' series. An interesting case of TarotMotifs are often at work for teased pairings: expect Persona-users of the [[TarotMotifs Lovers Arcana]], which are always female, to hold some sort of romantic interest in the Protagonist. Both [[TokenMinority Lisa Silverman]] (''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'') and [[IdolSinger Rise Kujikawa]] (''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'') have overt crushes on their respective leading characters (Tatsuya Suou and Yu Narukami, respectively). The same can be said for [[TheResenter Yukari Takeba]] (''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''), but in-story events of that game actually make her ''P3''[='s=] protagonist preferred love interest. This carries over in ''P3 FES''[='=] playable epilogue, "The Answer", where her feelings for him makes her want to turn back time and [[spoiler:bring him back to life]], despite the risks that would be involved. Aigis' feelings for the Protagonist also get a lot of attention within the main story, particularly in "The Answer."
** In ''P4'', [[AmbiguouslyGay Kanji]] and [[WholesomeCrossdresser Naoto]] get a fair amount of ship tease, which is added to in all the spin-offs. However, it ultimately goes nowhere, as [[ShipSinking all of it is one-sided on Kanji's part, and Naoto is completely oblivious to Kanji's crush on]] [[SweetPollyOliver her]].
*** Yosuke and Chie also have their fair amount of ship tease, given that despite their VitriolicBestBuds tendencies they're shown to understand each other quite well and get along swimmingly when they aren't bickering. This isn't lot on the cast either, as Rise and Yukiko tease that the two of them are perfect for each other, and the player even has a chance to point out that they're a pretty good match. [[AnchoredShip But of course, Yosuke still has lingering feelings for Saki,]] and [[ShipSinking Chie remains completely against the idea of dating him, and will quickly and cleanly shoot down anyone who tries to convince her otherwise.]]
** And in ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'', there's... something going on between [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman Teddie and Labrys]], what with him [[DeclarationOfProtection proudly declaring himself as her knight]] and conversing her in a way that he normally doesn't with his other female friends. The same can be said about the FriendlyRivalry with Chie and Akihiko.
** In regards to ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'', [[CoolBigSis Maya]] is admired by both Suou brothers, with [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Katsuya]] canonically having a crush on her and [[spoiler:Tatsuya is given the choice to kiss her at the end of ''Eternal Punishment.'']] During Innocent Sin, when Maya and Tatsuya are talking in the bunker, he even blushes! WordOfGod states that Maya was Tatsuya's first crush. Although, he was a kid, so it may have been more of a PrecociousCrush. WordOfGod leaves it up to your imagination if Tatsuya's protectiveness for her in Eternal Punishment is due to [[spoiler: her death in the Other Side]] or deeper feelings. It is established in the ending narration that '...so too has her love, retreated to a world beyond her reach.' Also, the amount of ship tease for Tatsuya and [[TheQuietOne Jun]] is outright legendary, from their exchange of personal gifts to [[AudioAdaptation their interactions in a CD drama.]] In fact, the scenario designer came out and said that if he had full control of the script, he would have had [[WordOfGay Tatsuya and Jun as an official item from the get-go.]]

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'' has this between Seimei and Yaobikuni, especially the latter's introduction when she tells him that she has been waiting for god knows how long for her "fated one", who is none other than Seimei, to arrive andů [[DeathSeeker kill her]]. A heart icon even popped up next to her during that moment in order to further drive the point home. Unfortunately, fans [[FanPreferredCouple like to pair]] Seimei with Hiromasa or ''yōkai'' characters instead.
