** Also, the "Korean ships," [[ArrangedMarriage Hwang/Mi-na]] and [[SexyMentor Yun-seong/Mi-na]]. Never mind that Mi-na [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pt4UT19xkoc isn't even remotely interested in marrying Hwang,]] and she views Yun-seong as a ''[[AnnoyingYoungerSibling kid]]'' (the official chart relationship in ''IV'' plainly states her feelings for Yun-seong are platonic, seeing him more as [[CoolBigSis her surrogate younger brother]]) -- likewise, Yun-seong thinks of her as [[ChristmasCake an old lady]] who should butt out of his business. Both ships remain hugely popular and to this day exchange the occasional broadside even though they've both been [[ShipSinking officially sunk]].
** Present, but relatively milder in the case of two naval battles: Siegfried/Sophitia vs. Siegfried/Hilde and Mitsurugi/Taki vs. Mitsurugi/Setsuka. [[FanPreferredCouple Each pairing is a fan-fave in its own right]], with the former entries being established for far longer (as Hilde and Setsuka made their respective debuts in ''SCIV'' and ''SCIII'', whereas the other four were main characters in ''Soul Edge'', the very first game of the series); the inter-pairing rivalries can go anywhere from civil to [[DieForOurShip nasty]]. This is discounting the fact that Sophitia is HappilyMarried in canon (to Rothion, [[TheScrappy but nobody likes him]], perhaps simply ''because'' he's Sophitia's husband), Siegfried becomes a loner and decides that "no one would touch his heart" in ''IV'' due to his actions as [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Nightmare]], Hilde has two children in ''SCV'' that are apparently ''[[ShipSinking not]]'' fathered by Siegfried in spite of them becoming friends and traveling together, [[WifeHusbandry Setsuka was in love with her late master and caretaker]] and hates Mitsurugi for killing him [[spoiler:until she gets over her grudge by defeating him in a duel between ''IV'' and ''V'', whereupon she relocates to Istanbul under a new name and trains orphans in the way of the sword]], and Mitsurugi and Taki probably have no romantic designs whatsoever. (Taki and [[HeterosexualLifePartners her best friend]] Chie even become [[ParentalSubstitute maternal figures]] to her apprentice Natsu, one of the playable fighters in ''V'', suggesting a HasTwoMommies kind of dynamic.) Oh, and [[spoiler:both Sophitia and Rothion are dead by the time ''V'' rolls around]]. Some fans have come up with ways to reconcile all of this, such as portraying Sophitia and Siegfried as an item before Sophitia meets Rothion at the beginning of her ''Soulcalibur'' story (and before Siegfried becomes Nightmare) and then having Siegfried gravitate over to Hilde or creating a Taki/Mitsurugi/Setsuka [[OneTrueThreesome OT3]].

** 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.

** Since Frisk [[AmbiguousGender has no official gender]], Frisk can be essentially [[LauncherOfAThousandShips paired with anyone]], the most popular of which tends to be with Sans or Asriel with Frisk being a teenage-adult woman. While not terribly huge on wars, Asriel x Frisk shippers clash with Sans x Frisk shippers, with [[WordOfGod Toby Fox outright explaining Sans would be too lazy to ever commit to any relationship]], and Asriel not being a valid option [[spoiler:given he returns to being Flowey after you close the game]]

* ''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.
* Mostly averted with Franchise/DanganRonpa despite the fans loving to ship people together. However, there is one between Hinanami (Chiaki and Hajime) and Komahina (Nagito and Hajime). While it was not a huge one at first, Anime/DanganRonpa3 made things worst as it pushes heavily towards Chiaki and Hajime in which Nagito and [[spoiler: Pre-Izuru]] Hajime never interacted once within the anime causing a major one between the fans.

* In what is probably the most wide-spread 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 versus Patchouli for Marisa, Keine glaring at Mokou hanging out with Kaguya, and so on.) Oh, and the whole mess with Marisa is parodied [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/320962/hakurei_reimu-kirisame_marisa-patchouli_knowledge- here (site NSFW).]]

* There is quite a significant number of people in the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' fandom who point out that no relationships between Spartans can happen, but somehow there still seem to be fan pairings. [[ChildhoodFriends John/Kelly]], [[CargoShip John/Cortana]], John/Miranda, and [[InterspeciesRomance John/Thel]] being the most dominant in the fandom. The first three are easily the most popular, but the last one seems to be growing at a snail's pace. John/Miranda supporters were not held back by the fact that Miranda died in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', they just change the outcome of the battle to say that she survived. Really, ''none'' of these pairings could happen, because Spartans are engineered to have no sex drive. But the fans don't care.
** Actually, canonically they only have an extremely ''reduced'' sex drive, at least among the Spartan-[=IIs=]. The Spartan-[=IIIs=] (with the relationship between Noble Team's Kat and Carter) and Spartan-[=IVs=] (ODST-turned-Spartan Buck and ONI operative Veronica Dare) have canonically shown interest in romance, [[spoiler:and even the Spartan-[=Is=], as shown with Staff Sergeant Avery Johnson, don't shy away from it either]]. This mostly has to do with the changes in the augmentation procedures, but even then several Spartan-[=IIs=] have shown romantic inclinations: Two members of Spartan Team [=BLACK=] were romantically involved with a third jealous of the thing, and Spartan Fred has ambiguously flirted with one civilian [[TeamMom Veta Lopis]] [[spoiler:who went on to work with the Spartans]].

* 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 BaseBreaker 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

* Not the worst problem of the immensely BrokenBase of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'', but it pops up from time to time. See [[PuppyLove Tails/Cream versus Tails/Cosmo versus Tails/Marine versus Tails/Zooey]] for the tip of the iceberg, along with the mixed consensus on Sonic/Amy.
** 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/SonicTheHedgehog 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.

* 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.

* EVERY ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game gets this, to some degree. There is a reason why [=OT3=] shippers are coming out of the woodwork for this series. In many cases, they're the fans who have grown sick of the shipping wars and who have decided to TakeAThirdOption.

* ''[[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney]]'': There's plenty of Phoenix/Edgeworth shipping and lots of Phoenix/Maya shipping, both of which are hostile to other ships (Phoenix/Iris for starters) and each other. Yaoi is one of the main common ships, the figurehead being Phoenix x Edgeworth. If one don't ship that or instead has a het ship that '''isn't''' Phoenix x Maya, they'll probably face a nightmare of harassment and ridicule. Also it's best to keep an eye on Mia/Diego shippers, though most are friendly enough if the canonicity of their ship isn't questioned.

* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' has odd examples of this.

''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.
