* The ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'' fandom is bad at this, despite the fact there are [[ContinuityReboot three continuities]] that don't intersect with each other. There are the Spyro/Ember fans vs.
the Spyro/Cynder ones. Ember canonically has an unrequited crush on Spyro (though she ends up dating an armadillo eventually) while Cynder ultimately [[OfficialCouple gets with Spyro]]... in a completely different continuity from Ember's. There's no sign that either girl even exists in each others universe, but the fandom doesn't care. DieForOurShip behavior is ''very'' common. That's completely ignoring [[PairTheSpares Ember/Flame]] and the occasional Spyro/Flame. [[InterspeciesRomance Spyro/Elora]] rarely finds its way into the war despite Elora being an ImpliedLoveInterest. This warring often relates to the BrokenBase between "classic" fans and ''Legend of Spyro'' fans.

* In what is probably the most widespread example of this trope, the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fanbase is, ostensibly, nothing but a GIGANTIC NAVAL WAR. Marisa Kirisame is probably the most disputed, having no less than 4 even divisions. Most fans often have preferred ships but realize that in the world of ''Touhou'', [[Literature/BraveNewWorld everyone belongs with everyone else]]. Fan works often portray in-character ship wars as comedy. (i.e. Alice vs Patchouli for Marisa, Keine glaring at Mokou hanging out with Kaguya, and so on.) Oh, and the whole mess with Marisa is parodied [[http://safebooru.donmai.us/posts/320962 here.]]

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' fandom is split between Asbel/Cheria, Asbel/Sophie and Asbel/Richard fans, especially since Asbel's official love interest Cheria [[TheScrappy isn't very well liked]].
** The ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'' fandom is not large, but it sheds some blood over which couple is the OTP - [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Senel/Stella, Senel/Shirley]] or [[BattleCouple Senel/Chloe]], especially the latter two, considering [[spoiler: Stella dies.]]

** ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' ignited a firestorm of Shepard-centric ship warring, largely due to reduced screen time for the ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' love interests and the controversial way several of their storylines were wrapped up[[labelnote:spoilers]]Jacob will leave you for another woman, Thane will succumb to his illness, and the only way to keep Kelly from getting killed is to [[GuideDangIt convince her to change her name]] when that [[ChekhovsGun dialogue option is available]].[[/labelnote]]. Among Fem Shep die-hards, Shepard/Kaidan vs. Shepard/Garrus is probably the ugliest ship wars get in the fandom. In general, most Shepard-centric ship wars in the fandom seem to fall along the lines of humans vs. aliens, with accusations of favoritism by the writers across the board. Shipping is such SeriousBusiness in Mass Effect fandom that a fan survey was created on it and sent to Bioware.

* It may be a Creator/BioWare thing in general. ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' has one official ship for a male Revan, two (a het and GayOption) for female. Fans will either take them as a given, or spin off into other territories like F!Revan/Canderous. ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire'' has a smaller fanfic base, but the Spirit Monk's romantic choices are mostly a non-issue, even with the BiTheWay status of Sky and Silk Fox. In the case of both ''Franchise/MassEffect'' and ''Franchise/DragonAge'', Creator/BioWare, to varying degrees of success, attempts to not officially designate a character the 'proper' love interest--every player is free to choose who their love interest is, making any conflict inherently pointless.

** There's definitely some tension between fans of Cullen and Solas in [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition the third game]]. A lot of it seems to come down to how different the character and romances are. Cullen's romance falls into the Disney prince category, being very sweet and [[spoiler:ending happily]]. Solas' romance, on the other hand, is super angsty and [[spoiler:[[StarCrossedLovers tragic]]]]. Interestingly, both groups of fans are often accused by the other of ignoring their characters' flaws -- Cullen's past as a [[DoesNotLikeMagic bigoted]] [[KnightTemplar Knight Templar]] and Solas' {{Fantastic Racism}} and [[spoiler:[[UtopiaJustifiestheMeans plans to destroy the world]]]]. All in all the rivalry isn't too bad, but don't be surprised to see rabid fans saying Cullen is a boring pretty boy or Solas is a [[spoiler:genocidal asshole]]

** The ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' fandom, especially as of the second installment, seems to be comprised of two groups: those who regard shipping as SeriousBusiness, and those that ship for fun or to point at and laugh at the first group. The introduction of Organization XIII basically just gave the former group license to spark flame wars over the relative merits of the #### ship of the day (12 males that hang out in a castle all day? Why, it's like shooting fish in a barrel!). Oh, and never mention [=AkuRoku=] if you value your head.

** Combat is also going on between Edgeworth X Franziska and Edgeworth X Kay shippers in the Japanese fandom. And in the American fandom it's Edgeworth het shippers vs [[HetIsEw those who insist he's gay and don't take kindly to him being shipped with women]].
** Some [[HoYay Franziska x Adrian]] fans have been attacked by antishippers who think that either [[spoiler:Adrian's TrueLove was her deceased mentor Celeste Inpax]] or that Franziska x Adrian [[UnequalPairing is too co-dependent and unhealthy]], with Adrian probably seeing Fran as [[spoiler:a ReplacementGoldfish for Celeste rather than an actual girlfriend.]]

* Pretty much comes with territory, in regards to ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo''. While [[YamatoNadeshiko Lilly]] and [[ShrinkingViolet Hanako]] have the largest camps, every girl has a strong following. [[StudentCouncilPresident Shizune]] fans in particular can be downright militant in their support, largely as a result of having to constantly battle the {{Hatedom}} the character has developed since release due to the divisive nature of her route, and [[TheRival her rivalry]] with [[DieForOurShip the much adored Lilly.]] On the forums, it's fairly common for posters to rank the routes/girls in their signatures with ">" or "=" signs. For example, Favorite>Second favorite>Tied for third=Tied for third>Least favorite

* A rather interesting case: Normally, ''[[VideoGame/NavalOps Warship Gunner 2]]'' is about warships blowing each other up. But the unlockable Special missions seem to intend to instill this idea - one of them is in fact an Escort Mission where you travel around sightseeing, and the three "love interests" (two men - one of whom is an old man - and a German doctor who is a looker in her own right) actually dig out naval fleets with the intention of blowing each other up over the Player. [[OnlySaneMan Fortunately you put a stop to this.]]
* Surprisingly enough (especially for a game with one male and two female leads) ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' has almost none of this in its fandom. This is because the game neither sinks nor confirms the Vyse/Aika or Vyse/Fina pairings -- and unmissable dialogue with each girl indicates that she is in love with Vyse, but completely accepting of the fact that he loves the other girl (and they both get along very well). The fandom has as such largely accepted the interpretation that the game is hinting at a Vyse/Aika/Fina OneTrueThreesome.

** [[OfficialCouple Jin/Tsubaki]] fans often attack poor [[DieForOurShip Noel]], even though Jin/Noel was sunk in the port. Since ''[[VideoGame/BlazBlueContinuumShift Continuum Shift]]'', [[MoralityPet Jin/Makoto]] is gaining popularity as a pairing, but conflicts between fans of the two pairings are rare. ''[[VideoGame/BlazBlueChronophantasma Chronophantasma]]'' may simply end up igniting a cold war, however. Oh, and there's a portion of the community who prefer to TakeAThirdOption and leave Jin as a CelibateHero, instead supporting [[MoralityPet Hakumen/Tsubaki]], causing more friction. Finally, we have fans of Jin and [[ShyBlueHairedGirl Mai Natsume]], the protagonist of ''[=BlazBlue=]: Heart Remix'': a likely reasoning behind this is similarities between them and [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Ky/Dizzy]]. (Never mind that in the actual doujinshi, Mai, outside of getting a FirstKiss [[HoYay from]] [[BiTheWay Makoto]], has been {{Ship Tease}}d with three other characters [[note]]her roommate Cajun, fellow classmate (and relative of Kagura) Taro, and Mai's distant relative (who is unaware of the relationship at the moment)/other roommate/family assassin Shiori, with Taro currently the frontrunner[[/note]], none of whom are Jin.

** ''Harvest Moon'' has odd examples of this. The fandom is usually quite nice and pleasant but this can occur when referring to games where the same characters are paired with different people. ''VideoGame/{{Harvest Moon 64}}'' has the rival pairs as: Karen/Kai, Popuri/Gray, Ann/Cliff, Elli/Jeff, and Maria/Harris. ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonBackToNature'' has them as: Karen/Rick, Popuri/Kai, Ann/Cliff, Elli/Doctor, and Mary/Gray. Due to SequelDisplacement the [=BTN=] couples are most popular but it's not too uncommon for complaints about how well they go together.
** The most common ship war involves the protagonists and the bachelor(ettes). ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife'' fans are especially prone to this. Celia/Mark vs. Nami/Mark vs. Muffy/Mark, with the additional Lumina/Mark (which gets flack for Lumina being a teen) and [[{{Fanon}} Mark/Flora]] and occasionally the rival ships. Bachelorettes besides the one shipped either get made plain and boring (usually Celia) or outright get RonTheDeathEater treatment (Muffy especially). ''Another Wonderful Life'' gets less flame-bait as both Marlin and Gustafa get varying degrees of dislike for not being "cute" enough; Marlin is still preferred over Rock, though.

** Chara x Frisk has been more popular as of late - in time with the theory of [[NarratorAllAlong Chara being the narrator for the entire story]], whether on the Pacifist or Genocide route, has also been slowly gaining steam for quite a while. Also, Chara has been just as ambiguously gendered as Frisk. As such, this lead to some shipping the two, with multiple reasons given as to why it would work. [[spoiler: Since Chara had the same SOUL color as Frisk, many fans reason that what's left of Chara's SOUL would attach to Frisk's, and the two would speak and form a relationship. Some fans even think that Chara would be able to regain a body, or at least some kind of visible form. Many others, of course, think that Chara is still pure evil and would kill Frisk and everyone else in a heartbeat. This has lead to quite a few bloody wars over how Chara really feels, and the player's own influence in the Genocide route.]]

* ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' has Hajime Hinata/Nagito Komaeda (Komahina) vs Hajime/Chiaki Nanami (Hinanami), due to both Nagito and Chiaki being hinted to have romantic feelings for Hajime. On rare occasions, Nagito/Chiaki (Komanami) fans will sometimes join in on the fight as well, but again, this is extremely rare.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' continues the grand tradition by sparking wars between those who believe Joker belong with Ann vs. those who believe he belongs with Makoto vs those who believe he belongs with Futaba. The Futaba issue can get particularly heated, since fans who don't ship them tend to interpret them as LikeBrotherAndSister.

** There's quite a bit of animosity between fans of Sonic/Amy and Sonic/Sally. Somewhat odd because Sally and Amy mostly don't exist within the same series -- Sally does not appear in the games or ''Anime/{{Sonic X}}'', while Amy does not appear in ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM''. The only version of the franchise where both Amy and Sally exist is the [[Comicbook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Archie comic]], in which Amy has a large hurdle to getting Sonic's attention -- having a 10-year-old mind in a 15-year-old-body.

In the meantime it's best not to even try to suggest pairing [[TheLostLenore Metis]] and Aura with anyone but each other, while the [[LesYay [[HoYay Athena/Juniper]] shippers have wisely decided to stay in their corners.



** One game where it's particularly noticeable is ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', with Link alternatively paired with the traditional ([[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Princess Zelda]]), the newcomer ([[HeroesWantRedheads Midna]]), and the childhood friend ([[FriendToAllLivingThings Ilia]]). Of course, some people just ignore all that and jump straight for [[LesYay Midna/Zelda]]...or TakeAThirdOption and ship [[OneTrueThreesome Midzelink]].

* As mentioned above, ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' has its share of this:
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'' has mostly the rabid [[HoYay Tatsuya/Jun]] shippers, who don't seem to take the existence of Tatsuya/Maya shippers kindly.
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' gives us all of Makoto/[[FanNickname Minato]]/the MC's possible pairings, with Yukari Takeba getting the bigger pot shots (Double if it's from MC/Aigis or MC/Mitsuru shippers). If we go to the [=FemMC=] route, it's ''not'' wise to mention how [[FanNickname Minako/Minami/Hamuko]] can get together with either [[spoiler:Ken Amada]] or [[spoiler: [[{{Delinquents}} Shinjiro Aragaki]] ]]; both pairings are known for rising HUGE hackles in the fandom.
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' has a particularly bloody war between those who ship the MC with either [[KickChick Chie]], [[LadyOfBlackMagic Yukiko]], [[MissionControl Rise]] or [[spoiler:[[TheGunslinger Naoto]].]] The latter is specially... complicated, ''[[InternetBackdraft and this is all we'll say about it]]''.
*** Got even more violent when ''[[UpdatedRerelease Persona 4: Golden]]'' came. Marie is a new girl in the game, if you follow her lovers route, Valentine's Day comes and [[spoiler:she kisses the MC! The worst part is that she kisses him even if you did NOT ask her out! Though at least she won't confess her love for the Protagonist in the extra ending if non-romanced.]]

''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' canonizing [[DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu the MC's dates with Elizabeth]] from ''[[UpdatedRerelease FES]]'' and explicitly confirming that Elizabeth also came to harbor strong feelings for him was tantamount to [[ThatOneAttack/ShinMegamiTensei dropping a Megidolaon]] on the fandom. By the time of ''[[VideoGame/Persona4ArenaUltimax Ultimax]]'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona Q|ShadowOfTheLabyrinth}}''[='s=] releases, it could be argued that Yukari, Aigis, and Elizabeth ''all'' have valid claims to being considered the male protagonist's ImpliedLoveInterest -- something that ''really'' riles up the more rabid fans. Not even [[spoiler:the MC's HeroicSacrifice at the end of ''P3'']] can quell the shipping wars, it seems.

** [[OfficialCouple Jin/Tsubaki]] fans often attack poor [[DieForOurShip Noel]], even though Jin/Noel was sunk in the port. Since ''Continuum Shift'', [[MoralityPet Jin/Makoto]] is gaining popularity as a pairing, but conflicts between fans of the two pairings are rare. ''Chronophantasma'' may simply end up igniting a cold war, however. Oh, and there's a portion of the community who prefer to TakeAThirdOption and leave Jin as a CelibateHero, instead supporting [[MoralityPet Hakumen/Tsubaki]], causing more friction. Finally, we have fans of Jin and [[ShyBlueHairedGirl Mai Natsume]], the protagonist of ''[=BlazBlue=]: Heart Remix'': a likely reasoning behind this is similarities between them and [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Ky/Dizzy]]. (Never mind that in the actual doujinshi, Mai, outside of getting a FirstKiss [[LesYay from Makoto]], has been {{Ship Tease}}d with three other characters [[note]]her roommate Cajun, fellow classmate (and relative of Kagura) Taro, and Mai's distant relative (who is unaware of the relationship at the moment)/other roommate/family assassin Shiori, with Taro currently the frontrunner[[/note]], none of whom are Jin. Or the fact that [[spoiler:Mai goes missing after graduation according to ''Chronophantasma'']].)
** Ragna [[LauncherOfAThousandShips is paired with practically everyone]], but the most common pairings are [[BelligerentSexualTension Ragna/Rachel]] and [[ShipTease Ragna/Noel]]. These two are the most aggressive of the fandoms, and battles wage constantly between the two. Not helped by the questionable nature of both pairings: on one hand, the age gap between Ragna and Rachel is ridiculous, and Rachel very youthful appearance wise. The games make it clear that she is an adult though this causes Squick for some. On the other hand, the fact that Noel is a clone of Ragna's sister [[{{Squick}} leaves a bitter taste in some people]]. Making matters worse, the game seems to hint at ''both''.

* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' fandom used to have '''very''' fierce ship wars in the second part of TheNineties, and sometimes these still pop out once in a while. [[TheProtagonist Kyo Kusanagi]] x [[TheRival Iori Yagami]] is one of the most famous/infamous cases of slashy FoeYay '''ever''' in any video game fandom, and whoever mentions Kyo's canon girlfriend [[GirlNextDoor Yuki]] or even ''hints'' that they ship Kyo with her... will likely be called "homophobe", "heterosexist" and/or "boring", with bonus "Yuki is a bland, antifeminist, MarySue-ish DamselInDistress and a TakeThat to fangirls from the creators so SHE MUST DIEDIEDIE [[InsaneTrollLogic for the sake of both feminism and yaoi]]" cat-calls in between. The few Kyo/Yuki fans that are still around may react via passive-aggressively accusing ALL Kyo/Iori fans of being "canon breakers", "shallow", "bitchy", "self-loathing misogynists who fetishize men but bash women for 'not being strong enough'", and/or of supporting a pair where the two men ''hate'' each other without any traces of mutual respect without any other basis than "they look hot."
** It's not much better whenever [[IdolSinger Athena]] [[ActionFashionista Asamiya]], who's hinted to have a crush on Kyo in some continuities, is mentioned. Kyo/Athena fans will whip out the "Yuki is WEAK and ANTI-FEMINIST and DOES NOT UNDERSTAND KYO ENOUGH, so Athena DESERVES Kyo's affections better since she's more interesting, stronger and prettier" argument, while Kyo/Yuki fans will either repeat the aforementioned "hey don't be canon breakers, Kyo and Yuki haven't broken up for all we know" argument or ask "if you think Athena is such a strong woman, [[UnfortunateImplications why are you making her worth depend less on HER and more on whether Kyo finds her pretty or not]]?" This will get more complicated if Athena's DoggedNiceGuy Kensou is brought up: some Kensou/Athena fans will just support the idea of a possible "double date", while others will accuse Athena of being an "ungrateful bitch who doesn't appreciate Kensou" and/or "a shallow slut who [[YourCheatingHeart throws herself at the feet of an already taken man]] while passing up the feelings of the guy who loves her and said taken man's girlfriend." (Never mind that Athena is an IdolSinger as well as a fighter [[ContractualPurity so she cannot go into dates]] ''and'' that she's totally dedicated to her career.)

** The most common ship war involves the protagonists and the bachelor(ettes). ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife'' fans are especially prone to this. Celia/Mark vs Nami/Mark vs Muffy/Mark, with the additional Lumina/Mark (which gets flack for Lumina being a teen) and [[{{Fanon}} Mark/Flora]] and occasionally the rival ships. Bachelorettes besides the one shipped either get made plain and boring (usually Celia) or outright get RonTheDeathEater treatment (Muffy especially). ''Another Wonderful Life'' gets less flame-bait as both Marlin and Gustafa get varying degrees of dislike for not being "cute" enough; Marlin is still preferred over Rock, though.
* In regards to ''Videogame/XenobladeChronicles'', there's the debate over who Shulk should be paired with. On the one side, there's the childhood friend [[spoiler:whose death sets the plot in motion]] (Fiora); and on the other side, there's the princess of a dying race (Melia).

** The game that seems to have the greatest conflict however, is ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. As usual, we've got [[BodyguardCrush Link with Zelda]], in addition to [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Link with Mipha]], [[HoYay Sidon]], and [[SmittenTeenageGirl Paya]].

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' has Budo/Ayano vs. Budo/Shin. One blogger was on team Budo/Shin and didn't want to do requests that involved Budo/Ayano. This led to haters sending her massive amounts of hate, and some even went so far as to send her pictures of dead animals. Considering that this spawned from a game where you kill people for your love interest's affection, it wasn't too out of place in a fandom like this.
