** ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'' fandom has major battles between Jake/Gia and Gia/Emma. The former is the OfficialCouple of the series, but fans of the latter will loudly throw Jake under the bus and accuse him of being a stalker while taking both actresses' approval of the latter as validation.

The former is the OfficialCouple of the series, but fans of the latter will use the show's bad writing to loudly throw Jake under the bus and accuse him of being a stalker while taking both actresses' approval of Gia/Emma as validation.
** Dillon/Ziggy vs Scott/Dillon from ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'' gets a special mention for the fact that it got the actors involved. While
the latter had a few fans prior, the former was a juggernaut when Dan Ewing (who played Dillon) proclaimed how much Dillon/Ziggy just would not work and that he and Eka Darville threw in a bunch of little hints for Scott/Dillon. However, Milo Cawthorne apparently still ships Dillon/Ziggy so this is a ship war where the actors are just as validation.invested as the fans.

** For ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', there is the ever-infamous war between those shipping Tommy/Kimberly and those shipping Tommy/Katherine, mostly driven by fans of the former who hated having their ship sunk. This has, in turn, caused angry retaliation from the latter faction. Then oddly enough, you occasionally get Jason/Kimberly shippers that consider Tommy to have been a MartyStu that "stole" Kimberly from Jason. Tommy's reappearance for ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'' introduced Tommy/Kira shippers as a third faction in the combat.
** Back before it became the cool thing to hate, ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'' had the Rose/Mack and Ronny/Will shippers vs the Ronny/Mack and Rose/Will shippers. And to make things more confusing, both of their [[PortmanteauCoupleName couple names]] were "Rock & Roll". Then the SixthRanger added more ships to the battle with Tyzonn/Rose vs Tyzonn/Ronny, which were both sunk with the appearance of Tyzonn/Vella.
** ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury'' has Casey/Lily vs Theo/Lily and, despite the former being sunk early on, fans refused to quit because of the actors' real life relationship outside of the show. ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'' later added Casey/Emma and Casey/Gia to the mix.

R.J./Fran vs Dominic/Fran and R.J./Casey are a bit more friendly among the ''Jungle Fury'' ship wars.

** Funnily enough, averted with Willow/Tara vs Willow/Oz shippers who generally tend to get along just fine. In their mutual hate of the Willow/Kennedy shippers, that is (yes, all 14 of them). There's also the fact that Oz and Tara are possibly the two characters in the fandom who are the least hated. Granted, both received their fair share of vitriol in the early days ([[ReplacementGoldfish especially]] [[SuddenlySexuality Tara]]), but ''nowadays'' they are almost universally-adored by all fans. Not so much the case with Tara's replacement Kennedy - [[TheScrappy who virtually all the fandom hated.]]

** If admit that your ship is Buffy/Faith, most people in the fandom will shrug, say "I can kinda see that" and move on.

* This broke out in ''{{CSI NY}}'' fandom, though it was more of a case of "many ships against one ship" in the case of the Danny/Lindsay ship ([[HoYay Danny/Flack]], Danny/Angell, Danny/Rikki, and Danny/anyone-but-Lindsay vs. Danny/Lindsay). Claims of no chemistry, lack of believability, excessive screentime, were among the arguments flung against Danny/Lindsay by the anti-D/L faction, compounded by their general dislike for Lindsay as a character.
