[[DieForOurShip Ship wars abound]] in anime and manga fandom. The presence of DFOS is almost guaranteed in any case where TheProtagonist has multiple love interests. Some shows have even gotten bad enough to warrant their own pages:

!!Other series
* Aoyama Masaya of ''TokyoMewMew'', Ichigo's [[OfficialCouple canon love interest]]. Fans who prefer Ichigo with the JerkWithAHeartOfGold or the StalkerWithACrush often portray him as either an unimportant idiot who is quickly discarded or an evil mastermind who is cheating on her with Miwa or Moe or both. (Or Minto in a double pairing derailment, if the shippers happen to come from the section of the fanbase that believes Yuri Is Ew.) Either interpretation completely ignores his kind, intelligent, loyal canon personality. He usually ends up run over by a semi.
** It gets so bad that fanfic writers change the continuity so that [[spoiler:Ichigo's MysteriousProtector, the Blue Knight, ''a.k.a.'' Ao no Kishi, turns out to be Ryou instead of Masaya]], despite this completely destroying the continuity. Then again, that's how [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] did it, too.
** Worse, Ryou/Ichigo shippers often call Masaya "boring" and Ryou "interesting" because of the latter's angsty past that Ichigo could "cure"... [[spoiler:completely ignoring that Masaya is secretly just as angsty as Ryou and twice as bitter -- [[StepfordSmiler he's just very good at keeping those secret]] -- and that [[LoveRedeems his relationship with Ichigo is what gets him to realize that not everyone in the world is selfish and deserves to die]].]] Did these shippers ''read'' the last two volumes of the manga?
** While it's not as bad as all the Masaya hate, some Ichigo/Ryou fans bash Retasu for having a crush on Ryou, as seen in some ''Website/YouTube'' comments. Nevermind that [[ObliviousToLove Ryou doesn't seem to be aware of her crush]] and that she is [[ShrinkingViolet way too shy]] [[CannotSpitItOut to tell him anyway]].
* Some of the less mature fans like to make Guido from ''Anime/SamuraiPizzaCats'' an abusive jerk because they see him as a threat to the Speedy/Polly pairing. This is ridiculous because Guido never shows any interest in Polly. For that matter, until the GrandFinale, neither does Speedy -- they only fought over the affections of Lucille until [[LastMinuteHookup Speedy fell for Polly at the eleventh hour]]. When Polly and Speedy do hook up, Guido is happy for them. The crazy shippers seem to hate Guido for being there, even though his lack of interest means that he's not an obstacle.
* Amagi Michal of ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'', a ClingyJealousGirl ''and'' IllGirl who is smitten with Kaito, gets this. Take out the clingy jealous part, and she's a lot like Tomoe Hotaru of ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' fame, but none of the latter's fans seem to realize this.
* This happens from time to time in ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi''. Shiori and Fujio are sometimes this for Hazuki × Yada fans and there is some decent-sized ShipToShipCombat between Kotake × Doremi, Akatsuki × Doremi fans, and Doremi-yuri-pairing fans. Imagine how the fans reacted when Aiko was given a LoveInterest in ''Naisho'' where she neither admitted nor denied attraction to him, causing an uproar from fans who paired Aiko up with [[LesYay Nobuko/Momoko/Onpu]][[SpearCounterpart /Leon.]]
* ''Anime/PrettyCure'' fandom is usually rather light on this trope, as most shows in the series have no canon pairings to begin with. However, when there ''are'' canon pairings, this trope can crop up. For example:
** Kouji and Natsu from ''YesPrecure5''. The fact that they turn into TalkingAnimal sidekicks Coco and Nuts spurred the hatred by providing {{Squick}} as a ready excuse. They eventually found fandom support, however.
** Joe Okada from ''Anime/DokiDokiPrecure'' was already unpopular with certain fans due to being both [[MemeticMolester uncomfortably creepy around the teenage protagonists]] and [[HetIsEw a male who could be shipped with the girls]]. And then episode 17 revealed that [[spoiler:he was Princess Marie-Ange's fiance, making him a ''canon'' obstacle to a rather popular yuri pairing (Ange/Makoto).]] The fans who already disliked Joe ''really'' didn't like him after that.
*** Still from ''Doki Doki'': ever since it was revealed that the movie is about ''Mana's marriage'', YuriFan began to hate ''every single'' potential LoveInterest of Mana. [[spoiler:Nikaidou, one of Mana's classmates,]] got it especially hard ever since one of movie trailers [[spoiler:showing him being all flustered when Mana gets close at him. And let's not get started on how he's treated in the last two episodes]].
* A minor example in the ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' fandom: Frequenters of the [=AnimeSuki=] forum would've known the infamous 300 YU-NANO AGAINST LEGION OF FEI-NANO FlameWar. And no, we're not talking about some [[ThreeHundred smelly old men]]. This FlameWar was mostly fueled by irritation that Yuuno was used as a plot device and not a character -- an 'out' for the writers in case they got too scared of Nanoha/Fate. TheThemeParkVersion of this irritation is Yuuno Hate (at least from the Legion). But PoesLaw and {{GIFT}} means there are people who will take it seriously or claim total seriousness.
** Even though [[TheOneGuy Erio]] has managed to escape the brunt of bashing due to being overtly [[PuppyLove shipped]] with Caro, preventing him from being a threat to the main pairings, he still gets "Erio must die" vitriol every now and then from HetIsEw fans who think his mere presence among the main cast ruins the perfect yuri dynamic of the ImprobablyFemaleCast.
* This is common in ''TenchiMuyo'', if for no other reason than the ''characters'' are usually already doing it themselves:
** Princess Ayeka is hated by the pro-Ryoko''/''pro-Tenchi x Ryoko fans. The reverse is also true, particularly those familiar with the AlternateContinuity ''Tenchi Universe'' TV series and movie ''Tenchi Forever'', which [[SpotlightStealingSquad show a slant in Ryoko's direction]]. Still, the hatred against Ayeka was practically there pretty much from the start, since some Ryoko fans deemed Ryoko [[RealWomenDontWearDresses as stronger and more worthy because she was less traditionally feminine]] than the more proper, moody and comically prissy Ayeka.
** Sakuya Kumashiro from ''Tenchi in Tokyo'' was added in as a third love interest, and [[ThirdOptionLoveInterest was actually picked over both Ryoko and Ayeka]], leading ''both'' fan segments to hate her, which leaves her with very few fans. [[spoiler:She didn't make it to the end of the series, though.]]
** Noike from the newest ''Tenchi'' {{OVA}} series is also hated for this, as well as for being both a CanonSue and a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute for the more popular AlternateContinuity character Kiyone Makibi.
** And all of this is incredibly ironic since the WordOfGod has stated that [[spoiler: Tenchi eventually just [[MarryThemAll marries them all]]]]. Of course, some people just ignore ''that'' as well.
*** Considering that the supplemental material, at least for North America (not to mention elsewhere), is not available, that is somewhat understandable. What makes things even funnier about Noike, is that she is both a [[spoiler:false suitor]], and later on [[spoiler:the only one of Tenchi's suitors who has a legitimate claim]].
* Nachi from ''Mugen Densetsu Takamagahara Dream Saga'' has a bit of this; she's also {{transsexual}}, and therefore has [[AcceptableLifestyleTargets more fuel]] for jokes at her expense.
* ExpandedUniverse example: Mana Kirishima, of the ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' game ''Girlfriend of Steel 1''. "[[RoleCalled Girlfriend]]" as in "[[Characters/NeonGenesisEvangelionCentralCast Shinji's]] girlfriend", which pisses off those who ship him with [[BelligerentSexualTension Asuka]], [[ShyBlueHairedGirl Rei]], [[CoolBigSis Misato]], or [[GayOption Kaworu]], and ''love'' to accuse her of being a RelationshipSue.
** Several Shinji/Rei shippers have managed to {{flanderiz|ation}}e Asuka from a {{Tsundere}} [[JerkassWoobie with deep-seated psychological issues]] to an outright [[{{Yandere}} psycho]]. There are also Shinji/Asuka fics in which Rei is either a soulless zombie or creepier than Kaworu.
** And while that may be closer to Anno's original vision for Rei than is the {{Moe}} icon whom the [[RunningTheAsylum fans have canonized]], there is no excuse whatsoever for turning Maya, of all people, into a secretly evil and psychotic member of the SEELE council who implanted Adam's embryo into ''her'' hand, just to facilitate Gendo/Ritsuko. Ignoring the fact that this twists [[NiceGirl Maya]] beyond all recognition, Gendo/Ritsuko is the one pairing Maya would ''break up'' if [[LipstickLesbian she]] [[PsychoLesbian were]] [[IfICantHaveYou evil]], making this CharacterDerailment ''of'' CharacterDerailment.
** There's a Shinji/Rei fic where Asuka not only turns out to be a {{Yandere}}, but [[ManipulativeBastard actively manipulates Misato's suppressed maternal instinct to turn her against them as well]]. Asuka dies, and Misato is carted off to a mental institute to be freed of the red-haired devil's indoctrination.
** [[TheWarOnStraw Asuka's counter-argument]] in many S/R stories is " what the hell does that ''doll'' have that I don't?!" To be sure, none of the source material sees Asuka making an eloquent case for pairing herself with Shinji, but give the girl ''some'' credit.
** There are fans, [[AmericansHateTingle primarily Western ones]], who maintain that Kaworu is an [[EvilAlbino evil]] ManipulativeBastard who deliberately [[HoYay got close to Shinji]] simply to [[SanitySlippage break him]] [[HeroicBSOD further]] with his [[spoiler: eventual death]]. Even if one ignores [[http://17th-angel.tumblr.com/post/11409385358/i-wanted-to-make-kaworu-someone-that-could-be supplementary material]] and ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' - which, to be sure, [[StealthSequel may]] [[ContinuityReboot or]] [[ShrugOfGod may]] [[MindScrew not]] have any relevance to the original series - Kaworu is the only person in the entire series to openly tell Shinji that he loves him (or perhaps just likes him - the notoriously ambiguous ''suki'' rears its head once again). However one may [[TheFourLoves interpret this statement]], it seems clear enough that Kaworu is at worst InnocentlyInsensitive for failing to realize the effect his words would have on a Shinji who was already a hair's breadth from shutting down completely.
** Finally, there is more than a hint of MisaimedFandom in treating this legendary DysfunctionJunction GenreDeconstruction as a straightforward HaremAnime in the first place. Shinji himself had the choice to turn the show into a harem series in the final episode - and he rejected it as a lie. This suggests that, in the show's own estimate, people who treat it as though it were all about the shipping are even more determined to run away from reality than Shinji himself. Creator/HideakiAnno: even when he's giving his audience exactly what it wants, he's still [[TakeThatAudience giving it the middle finger]].
* For ''SchoolRumble'', there's ongoing ShipToShipCombat between Harima/Eri and Harima/Tenma fans. Eri fans are adamant that Tenma is [[TheVamp a tease who was only playing with Harima's heart]] the entire series, when in reality, Tenma [[ObliviousToLove honestly did not know about Harima's feelings until the very end of the series]]; she never loved anyone other than Karasuma, and [[ShipperOnDeck actively SUPPORTED Harima trying to win his love over]] (despite her not knowing that ''she'' is said love) and [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl is good friends with Eri]] to boot. Tenma fans, on the other hand, insist that Eri is a SpoiledBrat RichBitch who doesn't really love Harima, while in fact [[{{Tsundere}} she really does love Harima but is very proud]]. Most of the war here comes from delusion and overreaction, unfortunately, especially since Karasuma/Tenma and Harima/Eri have been [[OfficialCouple all but canon]] throughout most of the series.
** And ''then'' you have the fans who just dearly ''dearly'' want the whole ObliviousToLove and CannotSpitItOut thing to resolve in canon, and hence will kill off an entire ''pair'' just so that their preferred canon pairing can get together faster. That or they just shove their preferred canon pairing into a room and dwell on what happens afterward.
* Back in the days of the ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' fandom, just about ''every single character'' had a squad of people out to get them for getting in the way of this or that pairing, most of which would never even happen, and even if it did, many of these victims would have no interest in breaking it up. The main triangles, though, were [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Takeru-Hikari-Daisuke]] and [[Anime/DigimonAdventure Taichi-Sora-Yamato]], one a very frequent ShipTease and the other involving an OfficialCouple. And before you ask, no, there was no specific popular combination of happy couple and evil rival; the combinations in each triangle were pretty much of equal frequency. Yes, counting the ''[[EveryoneIsGay yaoi]]'' [[GayOption options]].
** In the end Sora and Yamato got together. Which obviously pissed off Taiora fans. As for Daisuke, Takeru, and Hikari? None of them end of with each other but nameless and faceless characters. Pissing off Daikari, Takari, and Daikeru fans alike.
** Don't forget how Miyako took the brunt of the bashing in the [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Miyako-Ken-Daisuke]] pairings, [[spoiler:because she got Ken in the DistantFinale]].
** And not even the foreign Digidestined that appeared in maybe two or three episodes are safe from bashing. [[TheOjou Catherine]], the French blonde girl who helped Takeru and Taichi and got kisses from them in return, is often seen as an horrible threat to Taichi/Sora and/or Takeru/Hikari. In a similar vein [[TheWoobie Wallace]], who kissed Hikari, has got both Takeru/Hikari and Daisuke/Hikari fans out for his blood. Same goes to [[BrattyHalfPint Rosa]], the Mexican little girl infatuated with Ken, who's very much maligned by Daisuke/Ken fans: many after-GrandFinale rants took pot shots at lots of characters, and Rosa was the one-shot female who took the hardest ones (Wormmon didn't like her, so she ''had'' to be a little bitch).
* Asuka Tenjouin/Alexis Rhodes of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' is not only hated and called all manner of bad names for being the token female love interest and MsFanservice in a show filled past the brink with HoYay, but for vehemently refusing to get ''into'' a relationship with Manjyome/Chazz.
** There's at least one fan that will vilify ''anyone'' who so much dares to speak of Judai hooking up with anyone ''but'' Asuka, especially if said hook-up is with TheAce Johan/Jesse. With the series over now, it seems they took the best way out and [[spoiler: had ''no'' ships resolved.]]
** Yubel is frequently bashed and vilified far beyond her actual canon obsessions when it comes to Juudai x Asuka fics. Oddly enough, she doesn't usually get that treatment in Juudai x Johan ones, and it's canon that she's jealous of Johan for having (supposedly) stolen Juudai's love from her.
* [[{{Shorttank}} Anzu]] [[TeamMom Mazaki]] of ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Yugi's childhood friend, not only has the misfortune of being one of the very few girls in the series and being the crusader of ThePowerOfFriendship, but is also involved in a LoveTriangle with two of the main male characters ([[SharingABody in the same body]], but still...). As a result, enraged yaoi shippers depict her as a [[TheDitz complete idiot]] or a [[HetIsEw homophobic harpy]] [[StalkerWithACrush who wants the bishies all to herself]]. She's usually [[MurderTheHypotenuse killed off horribly]] at the end of the fic.
** Gets even worse in the anime, where she has to compete with [[ChildProdigy Rebecca]] [[{{Meganekko}} Hawkins]] who has even more romantic feelings for Yugi and generally a better duelist than her.
** Mai is also sometimes depicted as a [[ChristmasCake sad]] [[MrsRobinson old slut]], usually when the pairing in question is Joey/Kaiba. Or Joey/anybody but her, really. Made even more annoying because Mai explicitly says [[CelibateHero she's got other priorities than romance]] - especially in the anime, where she ''did'' have the chance to marry a rich action star (a clear CaptainErsatz of Jean Claude Van Damme) but blew him off repeatedly and, [[HopelessSuitor when he wouldn't back down]], she defeated him in a duel.
** Tristan/Hiroto, when not [[ShipMates paired with Duke/Ryuuji]], is usually the Token Homophobe, especially in Joey/Kaiba and Yugi/Anybody. How vocal he is about it tends to depend on the level of {{Badass}}edness of the people involved.
** In some Kaiba/Shizuka(Serenity) fics, Joey quickly turns [[KnightTemplarBigBrother Knight's Templar Big Brother]] when he finds out about their relationship and then cranks it UpToEleven. This can happen on both sides if Serenity is paired up with Kaiba's little brother, Mokuba, sometimes resulting in StarCrossedLovers.
*** The opposite also happens sometimes in Joey/Kaiba fics, with Serenity being painted as the bitchy, ungrateful little sister who wants to steal her brother's one true love. And for some reason, she's also portrayed as a bitch in Azureshipper (Seto/Anzu) fics out to steal Anzu's true love.
* Divine of ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds''. Go to a horde of Yusei/Aki-fangirls, throw in this name and watch what will happen. It's definitely not fun. Despite him dying ''twice'', which also presumably kills off the possibility of a future development of his romance with Aki in the show, the fans just can't stop bashing him and depict him raping, beating and insulting the living daylights out of her. Usually he dies a terrible death at the end of every single one of their fanfictions. In the show, it was not only made pretty clear that he never would have abused her physically nor verbally, but also shown that even ''if'' he used her for her powers, he was in fact always very caring and protective, if not gentle towards her.
** Another idea very popular in Yusei/Aki-fanfiction was (and still is) Aki turning against Divine as soon as she finds out about his [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans evil motives]] and wanting him dead, killing him together with Yusei, or at least being happy about [[KnightInShiningArmor her hero Yusei]] having slayed him for her. This was completely {{jossed}} though in episode 42, when Aki actually did find out the truth and said that even if Divine used her for her powers, she still would always be grateful to him for accepting her and even that his existence was invaluable to her. Also she was ''pretty'' happy to see him when he [[spoiler: returned in episode 60]].
** The [[BodyGuardCrush Jack/Mikage]] shippers REALLY don't like Carly, and let's not forget how much hate [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Ushio]] gets from them.
*** Although to be fair, since [[AFriendInNeed Jack/Carly]] became far more popular, nowadays Mikage is probably the most hated female character in Yu-Gi-Oh 5d's for still sticking to her admiration for Jack.
** Recent episodes show numerous hints of Crow/Aki. Mention this and Yusei/Aki Fans along with the notorious Crow Haters will shout "CrackPairing" before you know it.
** Lately, [[BikerBabe Sherry LeBlanc]] fell victim to the Yusei/Aki-fans' bashing as well due to her increased interaction with Yusei and them sharing some [[ShipTease pretty ambiguous]] moments.
** In fact, Bruno gets this treatment as well. It's common for Jack as well from those wacky Faithshippers. They just kill everyone off while Yusei and Aki skip through fields of flowers and rainbows. Makes ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' seem good.
* Also happened to Souma Oogami of ''KannazukiNoMiko'', with fans likening him to an idiot or an overbearing bastard (of course, as nice as he is, he is choosing [[GirlsLove the wrong series]] to love his girl). This decreased considerably (but still didn't stop completely) when the series ended [[spoiler:with Souma [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy voluntarily stepping back]] after [[SchoolgirlLesbians Himeko and Chikane]] confessed their love to each other]].
* The tiny ''HellTeacherNube'' fandom ''really'' loathes the local ChristmasCake, Ritsuko Takahashi. At first, she's bashed and called "shallow" and a "bitch" for rejecting Nuubee's advances (which were in the DoggedNiceGuy league, so ''of course'' Ritsuko would've been weirded out) in a regular basis. And when she ''does'' fall for Nuubee after finally seeing his good side, she's bashed and called "third wheel bitch" for threatening the Nuubee/[[ClingyJealousGirl Yukime]] ship.
* Princess Amelia of ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' is widely hated, especially by fangirls who are Zelgadis/Lina, Zelgadis/Xellos, or Zelgadis''/''MarySue shippers. Generally, the mopey, callous, and bull-headed but still good-hearted Zelgadis would be glorified whereas the [[ThePollyanna naive yet kind-hearted]] and just Amelia would be turned into an immature, selfish princess with the intelligence of a fish and no fighting skills ([[HeroicSelfDeprecation she acknowledges her faults in the anime, even!]]). Zelgadis and Amelia would go up against Zelgadis and Lina (who is an OfficialCouple with Gourry). Those who do like Gourry/Lina severely tear down Gourry/Sylphiel (the latter having an [[AllLoveIsUnrequited unrequited crush]] on the former) and vice versa, citing Lina's [[ComedicSociopathy sociopathic behavior]] and extreme selfishness.
** Don't forget the bashing that WhiteMagicianGirl [[TheWoobie Sylphiel]] gets for "getting in between" Lina and Gourry. And often even ''Gourry'' gets bashed by Lina/Zelgadis fans -- when [[BetaCouple he isn't]] [[ShipMates paired off]] [[PairTheSpares with Sylphiel]], he tends to be either foolish, or a sexist monster that can only be defeated by Zel.
* In ''ShakuganNoShana'', the desire to see [[YamatoNadeshiko Yoshida Kazumi's]] soul eaten by a Tomogara in a painful way for getting between [[{{Tsundere}} Shana]] and [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Sakai Yuuji]] is extremely spread among the fandom. That Kazumi is presented as a fairly FlatCharacter at first didn't help her case any.
** Kazumi received a hougu from Pheles in season 2, allowing her to summon Pheles at the cost of her own life. Certain fans think that such a summoning would be a ''very'' good idea... Not to mention the reaction by viewers of the second season to her ''seemingly'' using that Hougu and fading away...only for the scene to be revealed as one that never actually happened a heartbeat later.
** Which is completely stupid, like many other fanfics of this kind, since she poses no threat whatsoever to Shana. Seriously, everyone knows by the end of the first episode that it's a 99% chance that it'll be Shana and Yuuji at the end.[[spoiler:It's 100% as of season 3. But if you're watching season 3, you can [[FaceHeelTurn see that there are.... complications]].]]
* Hikaru Hiyama in ''KimagureOrangeRoad''. It's true that TheMovie made her [[ClingyJealousGirl really fixated on Kyosuke]], but it's not like she was the ''only'' one to blame for the whole fuck-up either: Kyōsuke and Madoka were as guilty as Hikaru, and [[TearJerker the]] ''[[TearJerker three]]'' [[TearJerker suffered horribly]] because of it... but Hikaru is the ''only'' one who gets bitchslapped by fandom.
** Fanfic/RevengeRoad is one of the worst cases, as not only does Hikaru kill {{M|urderTheHypotenuse}}adoka and horribly torture [[IfICantHaveYou Kyosuke]] to death, she also tries obsessively trying to reach out to Kyosuke, and attempts to seize hold of a [[HopeSpot potential opportunity to break up him and Madoka]], only to find out that she was with an impostor.
*** Not to mention, the whole fic ''badly'' misses the point of the KOR movie it's based on: [[spoiler: that it IS possible to re-meet the guy whom you once loved and the friend who got his love... and recover their friendship, thus averting the "rebirth" of a LoveTriangle that separated you all.]]
* [[TheCutie Susanna]] [[ShrinkingViolet Marlowe]] from ''CandyCandy'' gets this so bad that women in their ''thirties'' and ''forties'' behave like whiny teenyboppers whenever reminded [[spoiler:of how Susanna got Terry instead of Candy, after [[HonorBeforeReason Candy decides]] [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy to give him up willingly]] and keep living her own life, since Susanna [[HeroicSacrifice almost got killed for him]] and ended up crippled and with her acting career in tatters.]] Also, they conveniently forget that not only [[PluckyGirl Candy's main goal in life]] is to become a self-made woman and '''not''' to just get a boyfriend... but that [[spoiler: Terry '''willingly''' chose to marry Susanna, whom [[PetTheDog he had a soft-spot for]] even while loving Candy]]. But [[DoubleStandard of course Susanna is a woman and a not very self-assured one]], so she's always to blame for everything while a male like [[spoiler: Terry]] is excused.
* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ''... [[ButtMonkey Yamcha]] often gets twisted into a wife-beater by fans of the [[GadgeteerGenius Bulma]] / [[TheRival Vegeta]] pairing. As long as we're on the subject, why shippers think that a wife-beater would be worse than an OmnicidalManiac is anyone's guess.
** Many ''Dragon Ball Z'' fanfics have had Yamcha cheating on Bulma with another woman as the impetus for Bulma to break it off with him and get together with Vegeta, who had pulled a HeelFaceTurn by the time the Frieza saga was over, though he was still something of an arrogant {{Jerkass}}. Yamcha being unfaithful to Bulma ''might'' have some canon basis, but Bulma wasn't exactly the perfect girlfriend to him either and he ''definitely'' wasn't an abusive boyfriend to her at any point. Again, this begs the question of how Yamcha cheating on Bulma is worse than Vegeta nearly letting Bulma and their son get murdered in the Android Saga by Dr. Gero and then Vegeta flat out saying that he doesn't care about them. Surely not caring if your girlfriend and infant son die is worse than cheating on your girlfriend, but not if you follow the shipper's logic.
*** You also have to consider that there is very limited evidence for Yamcha cheating on Bulma. Future Trunks had a one-liner where mentioned that Bulma dumped Yamcha for being a "playboy". However, Future Trunks is a third-hand source and incredibly biased source as well because he is Bulma and Vegeta's son. (You also have to consider that Yamcha is the guy who used to have panic attacks around attractive women.) We are never actually shown how Bulma and Yamcha ended up breaking up or how Bulma and Vegeta got together. And again, while Yamcha cheating on Bulma would be wrong if that's what happened, Vegeta not caring if Bulma and baby-Trunks got blown up is much worse. (While Vegeta does have some villainous qualities in the android saga, we are sort of supposed to accept him as a member of the Z Fighters and a "good guy" at that point.)
*** Demonizing Yamcha is even more ridiculous when you consider that Bulma and Vegeta are still together by the end of DBZ and have two children together, so it's not like Yamcha or anyone else for that matter poses a threat to the ship.
*** It's also interesting and by interesting I mean ridiculous that Yamcha is portrayed as abusive when Bulma is probably more prone to domestic violence. She once slapped Yamcha in Dragon Ball because he had a fanclub and other girls were flirting with him, even though Yamcha never flirted back and generally seemed uncomfortable with the whole thing, and then Bulma told him that she was going to wish for a better boyfriend. Meanwhile, Yamcha tries to make up with Bulma afterwards, even though he technically didn't do anything wrong. Bulma exhibits other controlling behavior in their relationship and has a double standard where it's okay for her to flirt with or eye up other men, but fangirls fawning over Yamcha warrants Bulma flipping out on him and accusing him of being unfaithful. This is in spite of Yamcha seeming to not flirt back with said fangirls and seeming to only care that Bulma likes him. Not saying that we should all write fanfics where [insert character here] rescues Yamcha from a dysfunctional and possibly abusive relationship with Bulma, but the fact is that nearly all the dysfunction in the Bulma/Yamcha relationship was because of Bulma.
** There's also the Trunks''/''[[FlatCharacter Marron]] ([[OvershadowedByAwesome Kuririn]] and [[ActionGirl #18's]] daughter) shippers who bash Pan, and the Trunks/Pan fans who bash Marron, neither of whom have done anything to suggest a romantic rivalry. In fact, Marron doesn't do anything ''at all''. Not to mention Pan and Marron are ''never'' shown to be romantically interested in anyone at all, let alone Trunks.
** Vegeta is often turned into a wife-beater by Goku/Bulma shippers, and their portrayals of [=ChiChi=], which, while not far off, still make her a victim of CharacterExaggeration. Likewise, the portrayals of both [=ChiChi=] and Bulma by Vegeta/Goku shippers can get downright ridiculous at times.
*** And Goku/Bulma fans insist and complain about Chi-Chi being a [[SatelliteLoveInterest shallow love interest]] and how [[StrangledByTheRedString she "stole"]] Goku from Bulma. Nevermind that Bulma seems to consider Goku more as a younger brother and only ''once'' commented on his good looks ... after not seeing him from years and being surprised that [[AdorablyPrecociousChild the cute little boy]] she knew [[SheIsAllGrownUp was now]] TallDarkAndHandsome. While Chi-Chi had already shown romantic interest in Goku [[PuppyLove when they were both children.]]
** Goten/[[FlatCharacter Bra]] vs. Goten/Marron vs. Goten [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Palace/Paris/Valese]] is another popular shipwar. Palace-bashers accuse her of being "retarded" for not knowing how to eat ice cream and make her out to be either a brain-dead valley girl or a conniving witch who wants to ruin Goten's life. Marron is also hated and accused of being a "skank" by her detractors. And Bra wearing a skimpy outfit and being a bit of a primadonna? Must mean she's that mean girl in high school that spread her legs for everyone, if you follow the shipwar logic.
** Let's just say that Videl isn't exactly liked by Future!Trunks/Gohan shippers. Or Gohan/Current-Timeline!Trunks shippers. Or really, just expect some Videl-bashing from shippers who pair Gohan up with anyone who isn't Videl.
*** Piccolo/Gohan shippers either portray Videl as a horrible person or have her be the supportive best friend, depending on how old Gohan is in the fan fic.
* There appears to be quite a bit of animosity in the ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'' shipping camp between those deciding whether to pair Natsuki Kuga exclusively with Shizuru Fujino (Natsuki's most important person in [=HiME=] and her schoolgirl crush in Otome, a dyed-in-the-wool [[SchoolgirlLesbians Schoolgirl/School Supervisor Lesbian]] with an obvious crush on her) or Nao Yuuki (who [[FoeYay teases her]] [[HoYay like crazy]] in ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}''), with fans of one pairing painting the designated "third wheel" as an evil harpy deserving of death (despite ''both'' Shizuru and Nao being examples of DracoInLeatherPants).
** Ignoring the non-shippers who [[TheScrappy dislike]] male lead character Yuuichi Tate for being [[NonActionGuy largely useless]] (and [[SpotlightStealingSquad stealing the spotlight in the manga]], to the point that some fans have [[Discontinuity/{{Anime}} sworn off the manga adaptation entirely]] simply because he's in it), those who write him in fanfic at all keep [[TheHero Mai Tokiha]] the hell away from him [[FanPreferredCouple in favor of hooking her up with]] [[CuteBruiser Mikoto Minagi]]. This is complicated even further because of the constant [[HoYay Les Yay]] Mai and Mikoto share on-screen, and because [[spoiler:even though Mai feels like she'd be better as Mikoto's CoolBigSis, she actually tells ''Mikoto'' "I love you" ''before'' saying the same about Tate, even in the final episode's {{omake}}.]]
*** There's also some Yuuichi bashing by Shizuru/Natsuki shippers, since in the manga, Natsuki's pursuing him, and he's her Key instead of Shizuru ([[spoiler:Then again, Yuuichi ''also'' gets together with Mai in the manga]].
** Rabid Shizuru/Natsuki fans have also bashed [[TallDarkAndSnarky Reito Kanzaki]], vice president of the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil Shizuru leads. Oddly enough, he shows no interest in Shizuru [[PlatonicLifePartners aside of friendship]] and has a crush ''on Mai'' in canon, but the Mai/Mikoto fans are ''not'' out for his blood. [[spoiler:The fact that Reito is Mikoto's older brother as well as [[DemonicPossession the vessel]] for the BigBad doesn't seem to bother them that much.]]
* Speaking of ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'', many shippers of the [[BetaCouple Akane/Kazuya pairing]] (yes, they exist) would like nothing better than [[DarkSkinnedBlond Mahya]] falling down the stairs and breaking a leg or something, for the annoying "crime" of [[MomentKiller interrupting any romantic moment between the two]] and generally acting like Garderobe's "romance police". Mahya is not a romantic rival, to be sure, but she still ''does'' get in the way of the pairing.
** Shizuru/Natsuki fans who follow ''Otome'' also don't like [[PsychoLesbian Tomoe Marguerite]], and make up a large section of her [[TheScrappy anti-fandom]]. It doesn't help Tomoe's case that she actually ''does'' attempt to hurt/kill people [[spoiler:(even going as far as to willingly join the bad guys)]] so that she can be the only one to get Shizuru's eye/pants... though [[spoiler:[[IHaveYouNowMyPretty the kiss]]]] was likely the straw that broke the {{Nanomachine|s}}-powered camel's back.
* The tagline to the harem anime ''{{SHUFFLE}}'' is ''"Which girl would you choose?"'' Better pick '''fast''', because the {{Instant Fanclub}}s depicted in the show have carried over into the fandom, and they're just as crazy as on TV. ''Kitto Kitto Kaede'' (pro [[{{Yandere}} Kaede Fuyou]]) and ''Ai Ai Asa'' (pro [[{{Bokukko}} Asa Shigure]]) in particular have deep, ''deep'' vendettas against each other's characters.
* In ''RomeoXJuliet'', [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Mad Dictator's Handsome Son]] Romeo Candorebanto Montague has a [[RomanticFalseLead fiancee]] named Hermione. She's sweet, has an odd hairstyle, starts as a ProperLady but has an episode that features her as a momentary {{Yandere}}, and is in between Romeo's destined love with a Juliet portrayed as a mix of {{Bifauxnen}} and ActionGirl for plot reasons. Of ''course'', no matter how [[TheWoobie sympathetic]] [[RomanticRunnerUp she is]] in canon (which is rare for a RomanticFalseLead), a good part of the fandom sees Hermione as an evil, stupid slut who must die so the strong and cool Juliet can have her Romeo, [[LeetLingo kthxbai]].
* This is probably just a symptom of the fact that ''Anime/CodeGeass'' seems to have spawned one of the [[BrokenBase most bitter and divisive fandoms]] in recent memory. Absolutely anything seems a good reason for Geass fans to entrench themselves and blame the other side for all the fandom's problems (and for their own bad behavior). So it's not surprising that the shipping is this way too. If you think about it, the shipping is incredibly amusing/distressing when you realise that [[spoiler: until Lelouch got, er, "unmasked"]], not only was the harem ending supported by Divine Right Of Rulership and genetics (Emperor Chuck had 108 wives?), but by ''two'' prospective haremettes, [[spoiler:the not-entirely-in-the-closet Milly and the unappreciated Kaguya.]]
** If you're a more or less sane fan, do ''not'' mention the name Shirley Fenette in front of rabid Lelouch/C.C. or Lelouch/Kallen fans (and even then, it's probably best to isolate Lulu/C.C. and Lulu/Kallen fans from each other for a while). [[spoiler:Even after Shirley actually ''died'' for the ship.]]
** There's one message board where one poster insists that Shirley is an evil, heartless, manipulative bitch for using her father's death as an "excuse" to get closer to Lelouch, ignoring that she ''admitted'' it was selfish and apologized to Lelouch for it, and Lulu reciprocates her feelings to some extent. [[spoiler: Interestingly enough, compare the above to the BreakingSpeech Mao gives to Shirley in Episode 14 of the first season.]]
** Also, a good part of the hatred that sprung for [[spoiler: Rolo]] comes from [[spoiler: people being convinced that he killed Shirley ''solely'' out of [[{{Yandere}} psychotic love jealousy]].]] Forget that [[spoiler: Shirley had the bad luck of [[HeKnowsTooMuch saying the wrong thing at the worst moment]], Rolo killed Lulu's ONE TWU WUB solely to steal Lulu's heart for himself.]] Since he was a ''[[HoYay male]]'' after [[spoiler: Lulu]]'s heart, there's more than a whiff of fandom homophobia implied. Yes, [[spoiler: Rolo]]'s own actions are ''far'' from blameless, but he's more a complex JerkassWoobie than the monster some fans like making him out as to prove that [[spoiler: Shirley]] is "more worthy" of [[spoiler: Lelouch]]'s love.
** Kallen started getting LOTS of hate after [[spoiler: she kissed Lelouch]] in episode 22 of R2. When ''that'' happened, cue to lots of fans (and ''not'' only Lelouch/C.C. or Suzaku/Lelouch shippers) screaming "Bitch!" "Whore!" "Slut!" "Skank!" "Kallen is [[RealWomenDontWearDresses not cool anymore because she's acting like a chick]], OH NOES!"
**** Amusing because in canon, their shared feelings for Lelouch are the chief reason they ''[[LovelyAngels get along]]'', with clashes between them being purely due to [[{{Tsundere}} their differences]] [[SugarAndIcePersonality in personality.]]
** Gino gets a bit of this from the Lelouch/Kallen shippers, partially because he doesn't get a real lot of [[CharacterDevelopment development]] and while he seems to have a crush on Kallen, we don't really know how ''she'' feels about ''him'' at the end of series. The fact that Kallen/Gino is a popular PairTheSpares ship for Lelouch/C.C. and Suzaku/Lelouch shippers doesn't help.
* In regards to ''KaleidoStar'', [[NonActionGuy Kenneth "Ken" Robbins]] has a crush on [[GenkiGirl Sora Naegino]], the ''very'' femslashable female lead, but has so far escaped from the [[YuriGenre yuri fans]]' rage. But those who ship Sora with the second season's PrettyBoy Leon Oswald have ''huge'' hate-ons for Leon's partner, the arrogant and child-like AnimeChineseGirl May Wong, and deny her CharacterDevelopment to make her look like a bad, bad bitch.
* ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'' shippers can often behave just as idiotically as [[IdiotPlot the characters they're shipping]], if not more. Aside from the obvious Makoto-bashing ([[TheScrappy though it's not like he doesn't deserve it]]), Sekai fans call Kotonoha a "stupid, psycho, [[RealWomenDontWearDresses anti-feminist]] whore" for being Makoto-obsessed to the point of [[{{Yandere}} mental illness]], and in return Kotonoha fans just won't stop referring to Sekai as "prostitute", "traitor", "backstabber" and "hypocrite".
** It doesn't help that in the manga and some of the "bad" game endings, Sekai ''is'' seen as selfish and manipulative, instead of an impulsive and confused teen. What makes it ''even worse'' for her is that Kotonoha is ''genuinely'' crazy whenever she goes murderous or suicidal (seen by her DullEyesOfUnhappiness), but in at least two [=PS2=] game endings Sekai looks and acts creepily ''sane'' (or atleast somewhat more in control) when she does the same.
* Shippers in the ''Manga/DeathNote'' fandom have been known to come to blows over whether Mello should be with Matt or Near, despite the fact that Matt featured in all of ten panels in the manga, and his appearance in the anime was even briefer.
** Much loathing is also directed at [[PoisonousFriend Misa Amane]] for "standing in the way" of Light/L, even though Light sees ''both'' of them as obstacles on his path to world domination. Not to mention that by the end, [[spoiler:''all three'' of them are dead anyway]]!
** And then there's Halle Lidner. Having a ShowerScene in front of Mello and possibly flirting with him a few times? Apparently, canon proof that the lady is a complete tramp and absolutely unworthy of Mello's attention.
** At least one infamous Mello/Near shipper along with a small faction of fans were notorious for insisting Near was Mello's one and only and that Matt deserved to be offed just for that. It was a very confusing and baffling debate that ensued.
* No matter what your opinion of the ''IchigoOneHundredPercent'' ending is, you will be despised by an opposing shipping group, despite the fact that it's universally agreed that the lead, Junpei, is a loser. Possible proof that the entire theory about harem leads [[ThisLoserIsYou being losers so the audience can relate to them]] is true, as much as the fans hate them.
* Oh, ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' fandom. No matter how human she is, how much she hurts for being abused by her evil father [[spoiler: and her love interest when he turns evil]] and how she actually learns from her mistakes, [[{{Ojou}} Rue]] / [[DarkMagicalGirl Princess Kraehe]] keeps getting crap from rabid Mytho/Ahiru fans for stealing Mytho from [[PossessionSue the Sue-fied version of Ahiru]] they have in their minds. [[spoiler: Nevermind that later Ahiru bonds much more with Mytho's [[TheLancer companion Fakir]], and how Mytho ultimately ''chooses'' Rue as his Princess ''freely'', after she [[CallingTheOldManOut rejects her evil father]] and pulls a [[TearJerker heart-wretching]] HeroicSacrifice.]]
** Not to mention a datebook that explicitly states Ahiru's feelings for Mytho are actually those of admiration, and that [[spoiler:she's totally fallen for Fakir by the very end of the series.]]
* The ''MarmaladeBoy'' fandom, surprisingly, doesn't bash the people involved in the ridiculously huge LoveDodecahedron ''that'' much (outside of hating [[TheBrainlessBeauty Jinny Golding]] for pulling [[WhatAnIdiot something so stupid]] that [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone even]] ''[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone she]]'' [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone regrets it later]]... but the hardest, cruelest bashing actually piles up on handsome teacher Shinichi "Nat-chan" Namura, who's the love interest of Miki's best friend [[{{Ojou}} Meiko Akizuki]]. Yes, this is one of the cases where a HotForStudent situation is developed ''sympathetically'', but the fans who ship Meiko with [[ShelteredAristocrat Satoshi Miwa]] just will ''not'' stop calling Namura-sensei "pedophile" or "asshole who makes Meiko suffer for nothing". [[spoiler: Even after Satoshi sees he cannot sway Meiko away from Namura and pulls an IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy along with Namura's UnluckyChildhoodFriend, Ryouko-sensei.]]
* In a Ranka vs. Sheryl debate on a ''MacrossFrontier'' forum thread, Ranka gets criticized for being a "barely legal loli [[{{Moe}} moeblob]]", while Sheryl gets flak for her overly flirty attitude and [[RichBitch her somewhat selfish, overbearing personality]], even if onscreen, when both are not being rivals to each other about Alto, they have somewhat of a SempaiKohai relationship, and care for each other a lot (which has more than a [[HoYay Les Yay]] whiff, for some).
** The FanDumb got to the point where a formerly well-respected member of a non-English speaking forum actually ''made up supposed facts to make the impression that one of the creators supported Alto/Sheryl over Alto/Ranka''. This was generally seen as fact until members of a different forum got suspicious, tracked down the supposed magazine where the information came from and found out that it was all a lie. (A FAQ with a summary of the events can be found [[http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?p=2585414#post2585414 here]].)
* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' fans love to pair off Spike and Faye. Julia can go die in a fire, according to them. Or better said, [[spoiler:she can get shot on a roof top. Well, that was canon, but it certainly didn't help Faye's cause if there ''was'' one.]]
* ''FushigiYuugi'' fans who would have rather seen Miaka Yuuki hook up with Hotohori or Tasuki often bash Tamahome or kill him off in their fics to make either of the former pairings possible. (Oddly enough, fans of the Miaka/Yui pairing have yet to resort to this.)
** Alternately, some fics have Miaka conveniently die in childbirth so that Tamahome and [insert male character and/or MarySue here] can not only hook up, they'll have a little family when they do.
** And Tetsuya, Yui's eventual canon love interest, is sometimes portrayed as abusive or unfaithful so that Yui and Suboshi can get together somehow, although one would think the fact that [[spoiler:Suboshi is ''dead'' by the time Tetsuya asks Yui out in the end]] would be the biggest obstacle there.
** Three (four if you count [[WholesomeCrossdresser Nuriko's]] [[AmbiguouslyBi confusing stance on his sexuality]]) of the seven [[TrueCompanions warriors of Suzaku]] are all canonically in love with the female protagonist, who is [[TheScrappy hated enough as is]], and supporters of all of them are at each other's throats. (The guys at least were savvy enough in canon to set petty love rivalries aside and focus on helping Miaka properly become the Suzaku no Miko) There is also [[WomanScorned Yui,]] who is either more deserving of Tamahome ([[OfficialCouple who winds up with Miaka in the end]]) or gravely hated for blaming Miaka for stealing away a man she only knew for several minutes.
** There are also numerous fights between pairings among the Seiryuu Warriors. Never EVER mention Soi and Tomo's common feelings for Nakago if you value your own life.
* Even the YuriGenre romantic comedy ''LightNovel/StrawberryPanic'' isn't immune to this. The Shizuma/Nagisa shippers and the Tamao/Nagisa shippers can get quite violent when provoked. There is also a very large body of fans were angry that Yaya didn't get Hikari, and would rather see Amane get StuffedInTheFridge.
** And they were that close from killing Amane off after she fell off her horse...she gets better to the disdain of every Yaya fan out there. Amane just made a lot of enemies in one fell swoop.
* The ''SorcererHunters'' sidestory novels introduced a character named Enzeru Fish, who fell in love with Tira at first sight. At least one rabid Carrot/Tira fan [[http://www.angelfire.com/anime3/mypuppycarrot/KillEnzer.jpeg was not too happy about that]]. Another fan bashed Chocolat for having a crush on Carrot as well.
** On the yaoi side of things, Carrot is often demonized into a homophobic {{Jerkass}} who would disown Marron for being in love with Gateau. Conversely, Gateau is made into a raping bastard for the sake of Carrot/Marron or Marron/Tira.
* In ''Manga/ElfenLied'', Lucy/Kouta fans hate TeamMom [[ClingyJealousGirl Yuuka]] with a fiery passion. Even when, well, she's not exactly the biggest threat to their relationship... but the fact that [[spoiler: Lucy murdered Kouta's father and sister]] ''is''.
* A somewhat surprising exception can be found in the ''VisionOfEscaflowne'' fandom. The one who gets the hardest and cruelest bashing from fangirls for getting in between [[HotBlooded Van Fanel]] and [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Hitomi Kanzaki]] is... ''not'' [[ClingyJealousGirl Merle]] the CatGirl. Though fans ''do'' complain about Merle, the one hated the most is actually [[OfficerAndAGentleman Allen Schezar]], the blond-haired bishonen with a convoluted love life prior to meeting Hitomi (don't ask), who is seen as "sexist", "control freak" and "traitor" [[spoiler: because he got to [[SacredFirstKiss kiss]] Hitomi in front of Van... when the three were in a sort-of weird MoreThanMindControl situation enacted by Folken and the twin catgirls and [[BatmanGambit staged by Dornkirk]]. That was ''not'' Allen's fault (and neither Hitomi's, nor Van's), but people still use that scene to woobify Van and bash Allen.]]
* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' fandom has the infamous "[[{{Tsundere}} Kaoru]] is soooo emotional and sweet and that makes her better for Kenshin than the ice cold MarySue [[EmotionlessGirl Tomoe]]" v/s "Kaoru is a stupid, [[ClingyJealousGirl clingy little bitch]] and Tomoe was a [[PuritySue perfect goddess]] who made Kenshin truly happy" wars. However, said fans forget that [[spoiler:Tomoe was dead long before Kaoru came into the picture]], which means that neither of them poses any threat to the opposing ship. It's as if the fans refuse to believe that Kenshin can fall in love more than once in his life.
** And if we go to [[HotBlooded Sanosuke]] / [[TeamMom Megumi]] fans... Argh. Their treatment of [[IllGirl Sayo]] is ''horrible''. Makes even ''less'' sense since [[spoiler: not only she's an anime-only character, but she ''dies''.]]
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'':
** Some Kyon/Yuki and Kyon/Mikuru fans just won't stop [[CharacterExaggeration overexaggerating]] Haruhi's [[{{Jerkass}} childish, sociopathic and impulsive]] behavior to downright evil and/or psychotic degrees and ''denying'' all the CharacterDevelopment she ultimately got, while turning the "rival" into a victimised PuritySue to "prove" how more "deserving" she is of Kyon's love. To them, Kyon doesn't care for Haruhi ''at all'' and ''ONLY'' puts up with her because he's forced to as a member of the SOS Brigade [[spoiler: (read: he doesn't want her to [[RealityWarper re-write reality]] without knowing it, but would ditch her ''immediately'' if he could).]] Nevermind that [[spoiler: Kyon ''does'' gently but clearly tell Yuki in the novels that he ''likes'' all the craziness Haruhi brings to his life, and that without her, Yuki and Mikuru wouldn't even ''be'' there, so it's thanks to "the evil Haruhi" that they even have chances to approach Kyon.]]
** Kyon/Haruhi fans aren't entirely innocent of this either. A number of the more diehard fans seem unable to accept [[OutOfFocus Haruhi's reduced role in the series]], and instead paint Mikuru as an evil, {{Manipulative B|astard}}itch who is actively attempting to steal Kyon away from Haruhi. Never mind that she's apparently required to not get into relationships when outside her time frame, which would make her a {{Celibate Hero}}ine.
** To a lesser degree than the others, [[DepravedBisexual Haruhi]] / {{M|oe}}ikuru and Kyon/Haruhi. Aside of the already mentioned incidents, Kyon gets bashed by [[HoYay Haruhi/Mikuru]] shippers for being a threat to ''both'' sides of their ship.
** And funnily, the Itsuki/Kyon shippers are just bitter about it all: Pages and pages of Itsuki [[TrueArtIsAngsty angst]], at times turning him into a [[{{Wangst}} complete]] [[DepravedHomosexual psycho]] concerning his inability to be with Kyon, especially because of God-Haruhi, though not [[BuryYourGays limited]] to it (albeit usually inside his head)... Though given his charade...
* The fanbase on at least one anime website is bitterly, bitterly divided on their opinion of {{Meido}} Siesta's overtures towards Saito in the anime ''LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima'' complete with rabid fannish gibbering for her death. Even though, as of the second season, Saito [[spoiler:is married to his "master", Louise]], making them a semi-official pairing.
** Which is incredibly confusing since Siesta is generally, and '''consistently''', kind and caring towards Saito while Louise has a HairTriggerTemper and will beat him into an inch of his life, well after she develops feelings for him.
*** There's quite a bit of DoubleStandard there, too. While Louise is flat-chested, moody, tempery and confused about what love and romance are, Siesta is well-endowed, sexy, aware of her good-looks and willing to use them for her own benefit. You know what that means: slut-shaming of Siesta BY THE WAZOO! (Paired with Louise over-glorification because, for lots of people, it's DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale.)
** It goes both ways really, pretty much every fandom that doesn't ship Louise with Saito will paint her as complete {{Jerkass}} with zero redeeming qualities that sometimes just abandons him outright for little to no reason; never mind the fact that not only does she deep down really cares for him and actually shows it sometimes, but that she literally can't live without him (something made extremly clear in the novels).
*** Which doesn't stop her form kicking his ass and abusing him on a daily basis... A sever overdose of {{Tsundere}}, that is.
* BoysLove version: In ''YamiNoMatsuei'', some [[DracoInLeatherPants Muraki]] / [[AlmightyJanitor Tsuzuki]] fans don't see Muraki's repulsive acts of villainy as the main obstacle to get Muraki into Tsuzuki's pants. The "evil pest" is actually Tsuzuki's partner [[spoiler: and Muraki's victim]], [[TheEmpath Hisoka Kurosaki]], therefore they bash the crap out of Hisoka and gleefully forget how Muraki is ''not'' your average OfficerAndAGentleman, but a cruel and sadistic mass murderer [[spoiler: who wants Tsuzuki not only because he's pretty, but to use his body to revive his evil half-brother Saki... and kill him as revenge for ruining his life.]]
** And if you go read some Tsuzuki/Hisoka fics, you might find hate towards IllGirl Tsubaki Kakyouin as well.
** Even Tsuzuki is not spared by this trope. In some Muraki/Hisoka fics, he's portrayed as a weak, whiny and self-loathing {{wangst}} machine who can't properly take care of Hisoka and thus has the latter running to his [[spoiler: murderer/rapist]].
** [[IllGirl Ukyou Sakuraiji]] gets hate too for being [[spoiler:Muraki's [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Victorious Childhood Friend]]]].
* While Ayaka and Noriko from ''{{Gravitation}}'' have received their share of bashing, despite Ayaka [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy willingly conceding Yuki to Shuichi]] and Noriko being HappilyMarried to a [[MayDecemberRomance much older man]] in the manga, the majority of fanfics simply don't bring them up at all. The ''guys'' don't get off as easily: either [[TallDarkAndSnarky Yuki]] is an abusive, heartless bastard who sends [[{{Keet}} Shuichi]] running off into the arms of someone else (usually [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Hiro]]), or Tohma is a [[StalkerWithACrush psycho stalker]] who gets in the way of Shuichi and Yuki's love. Granted, Yuki isn't the nicest person and Tohma ''did'' try to keep Shuichi and Yuki apart at one point, but neither of them is as evil as many fans would like to believe.
* Once upon a time, the ''Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}'' fandom had a buttload of this. TeamMom Francoise/003 was not only seen as "weak" [[RealWomenDontWearDresses because she didn't always fight]], but if you liked your yaoi (even if it didn't involve her being a "threat") it was a sort-of pre-requisite to hate her. And those who shipped her with Joe/009 fought back... by bashing the most obvious "competition", Princess Ixquic and [[Theatre/OedipusRex Carl Eckermann]] [[spoiler:alias Sphinx.]]
* While the Ship Wars have calmed down considerably, the ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' fandom spent some time being a major headache. The loudest were the Roy/Riza fans, who hated Ed, Havoc, Al, or anyone else who had even the remotest potential to break up their OTP, but every one of the Major Pairings had its rage-filled fans. And God forbid you were one of those who shipped multiple pairings that traded off characters, threesomes, or didn't like shipping at all.
** The weird thing is, there really isn't any need to do DieForOurShip with Roy/Riza because they make such good ShipMates with Ed/Win and Al/Mei - and in fact, that's the route most of those shippers usually go. It's just that there's always that VocalMinority...
** Winry can count herself lucky, since most of the Roy/Ed fandom doesn't bother to kill her in fanfic but just [[ShipMates pairs her off with Al]] so Ed can go be gay with Roy. They mostly ignore her completely if they ship the brothers together (or with their own alchemist MarySue). Riza is also usually spared by Roy/Ed shippers because it's easy to interpret her feelings as one-sided, cast her and Roy as PlatonicLifePartners, and/or ship her with Havoc or [[GirlOnGirlisHot another lady]]. That said, Winry- or Riza-hate is still unfortunately common in FMA slash fics involving Ed and/or Roy (who both mostly get shipped with dudes besides their "canon" female love interests).
** The first anime also had Ed/Winry vs Ed/Rose (and slight Ed/Noa). Ed/Win and Ed/Rose fans don't have much of a liking toward the rival character - and frequently bashed her or killed her off in their fanfiction - but both seem to dislike Noa (who is already TheScrappy). It doesn't help that Winry has an IdenticalGrandchild, and Ed is wearing automail, in an OVA; and that Winry most likely has an IdenticalStranger in the AlternateUniverse.
** Winry and Riza are likely spared because they are generally popular characters even for those who aren't into shipping them. Rose is a BaseBreaker to begin with - especially in the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]], the canon where she's important enough to be a "threat" to the other two main Ed ships - which is likely why she's the most popular candidate for DieForOurShip. She's simply less mentioned now because she had such a smaller role in [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist the manga and second anime continuity]] (which also has less BreakTheCutie in store for her), but when the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist first anime]] was still the most well-known work, she was a frequent whipping girl in Roy/Ed and (especially) Ed/Win fics.
* ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman'' is a refreshingly calm and wank-free fandom, but that hasn't stopped some authors from making [[CelibateHero Ken]] into an asshole as a set-up for the [[{{Tsundere}} Jun]] / [[DumbMuscle Ryu]] pairings, or one particular [[SlashFic Ken/Joe]] writer from demonizing Jun into a ClingyJealousGirl of the worst kind.
** In some cases, Ken may be bashed in favor of pairing Jun off with Joe. The second series even had episodes that had Jun seem closer to Joe than Ken, which gave ship tease for the Joe/Jun faction. It became magnified in the ''Anime/EagleRiders'' dub, where viewers bashed "Hunter" for being too whiny and emo as a leader and felt there was more evidence for Joe being a love interest for "Kelly". It didn't help that the ship tease and Hunter's whininess were {{Flanderization}} of the original points.
* Some ''Manga/{{FAKE}}'' fans bash {{Clingy Jealous G|irl}}uy J.J. for his obsessive crush on Dee, which to be fair ''is'' over the top but they also forget J.J. is a pretty good cop otherwise [[spoiler: and that he later gives up on Dee - getting together with ''Drake'' instead (sorta)]]. Others accuse Berkley Rose of being a rapist due to his attraction to Ryo (the most he ever did to Ryo was a ForcefulKiss, and [[KissKissSlap Ryo punched him in the face]] ''immediately afterwards'' for even trying that), and some extreme cases of HurtComfortFic have the fangirl ''creating an evil MarySue to rape Ryo [[RescueRomance just so Dee can come in and rescue him]].''
* This happens quite often to Keiko Yukimura in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', as fans either love her and think she's a great match with Yusuke or hate her and usually make her out to be a jealous bitch (or kill her) so that they can pair him with Kuwabara, Kurama, Hiei, or an OriginalCharacter. The same thing also happens to [[spoiler: Mukuro]], Hiei's [[spoiler: boss and potential love interest,]] who is made out to look like a man and be a power-hungry maniac, if she's mentioned at all, in order to facilitate his hooking up with Kurama. Which is a shame, as [[spoiler: the two share [[TheMasochismTango a sweet, if at the same time somewhat disturbing relationship]], especially in the manga.]]
** We can't forget the hate [[TheLancer Kuwabara]] gets for not being a bishie and turning into putty when he's next to [[AnIcePerson Yukina]], can we? Yeah, a good part of the hate isn't pairing based, but some Kurama/Yukina fans ''do'' have huge hate-ons for Kuwabara, so...
** Hiei/Kurama fangirls who were more into the manga than the anime also tende to bash [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Maya Kitajima]] ([[NamesTheSame No, not]] [[GlassMask that one]]), Kurama's [[SempaiKohai underclassman]] with a crush on him who got roped into his adventures once. Nevermind that [[spoiler: he erased her memories of him so she wouldn't be in danger again]], the fact that Maya got a tiny bit of ShipTease with Kurama made her an horrid bitch to Hiei/Kurama rabid fans.
* This happens to just about every female ''WeissKreuz'' character who's shown some kind of romantic interest in any of the [[EveryoneIsGay eight main characters]]. [[{{Ojou}} Ouka Sakaki]] probably comes off worst; despite the fact that she is both [[spoiler: Omi's cousin]] and [[spoiler: dead]], fanficcers are still capable of transforming her into an arrogant, shallow RichBitch who Omi only dated because he was too polite to tell her where to go. In fact, though none of the four HitmanWithAHeart regulars' love affairs last more than a few episodes and Aya's feelings for Sakura were no more than platonic, their would-be love interests are far too frequently bashed for getting in the way of the HoYay or a MarySue, with [[FailureKnight Youji's]] ex-girlfriend [[ILetGwenStacyDie Asuka]], who was dead before the series even ''began'', being about the only exception.
** Even in Asuka's case, some shippers (the ones who don't make her into a PossessionSue, that is) have suggested Youji only hung around with her in the first place in an attempt to prove he wasn't gay, or they sub in a MarySue to serve as his childhood sweetheart in her place.
*** All of this is made especially silly by the fact that canon depicts all of the main characters, especially the [[FourIsDeath four protagonists]], as terminal {{Doom Magnet}}s who are almost guaranteed to get [[DroppedABridgeOnHim a bridge dropped]] on anyone who gets too close to them.
** This trope often gets applied to ''Ken'' for no reason other than his [[VitriolicBestBuds close]] [[HeterosexualLifePartners friendship]] with Youji would make Youji's new love look less important. When he's not being ignored completely as a result he's written as a clueless moron, the [[StrawmanBall token misogynist homophobe]], jealously and obsessively in love with Aya who never so much as glances in his direction, or any combination of the above.
** And then Youji [[spoiler: gets amnesia after all the shit that happened to him in Gluhen, gets married to an HospitalHottie named Asuka Itou and by all accounts lives happily ever after with the girl]]. You can probably imagine how well the shippers took this. About the only positive is that [[FlorenceNightingaleEffect Asuka Itou]] usually gets ignored or railroaded into deciding (with ridiculous suddenness) that she [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy wants her beloved to be happy]] rather than suffering the wholesale character assassination most of the other women face.
** In the [[ThePsychoRangers Schwarz]] side... just mention either [[PsychopathicManchild Nanami aka Tot]] or [[DarkMagicalGirl Sally Schumars]]. You'll have hordes of [[TeenGenius Omi]][=/=][[PsychicPowers Nagi]] and [[ManipulativeBastard Schuldig]]/ [[PsychoForHire Farfarello]] fangirls screaming for their blood.
* Should [[ShugoChara Amu]] end up with [[TroubledButCute Ikuto]] or [[ShelteredAristocrat Tadase]]? Dare you even mention [[BigBrotherMentor Kukai]]? It appears that Ikuto/Amu is the runaway winner, with 90% of the fandom touting it as the deepest, greatest love story ever told and calling Tadase a homosexual (at best) and potentially evil (at worst).
** You forgot [[TheMole Kairi]], who canonically admited to having feelings for Amu. Oddly, he rarely seems to suffer from DieForOurShip, unlike Amu's other admirers. This is probably because he was PutOnABus in the middle of the series.
* [[{{Tsundere}} Naru Narusegawa]] of ''LoveHina'' is demonized by fans of [[FanPreferredCouple Keitaro/Mutsumi, Keitaro/Shinobu, etc.]] On the other hand, some Keitarou/Naru fans bash [[DefrostingIceQueen Motoko]] and demonize ''her'' behavior towards Keitarou, while failing to acknowledge that Naru can be just as bad when at her worst. In fact, the whole ''Love Hina'' example that used to be here actually fell victim to ShipToShipCombat mentality and had to go, unintentionally making it a great proof of the trope.
* The [[Anime/LuckyStar Konami]] ([[GenkiGirl Konata]][=/=][[{{Tsundere}} Kagami]]) fanboys can be so rabid, they have been known in the past to bash {{M|eganekko}}iyuki just for the act of being on screen for a few moments. If these fans were the majority, chances are that Miyuki would really die for their ship. It's perhaps a telling sign of the temptations of shipping and {{Fan Dumb}}ness that an anime ''satirizing'' anime tropes and conventions should itself suffer from shipwars.
* An alternate-universe OVA series for ''DaCapo'', in which the [[FanPreferredCouple fan-preferred]] Kotori wins, was released several years after the original series. In this series, [[spoiler:DieForOurShip is ''actually'' invoked: Nemu is shown to have died some time before the story begins.]] A number of fans were... quite happy about this.
* Probably the current #1 cause of dislike for Kaaya from ''Anime/TheTowerOfDruaga'', with many fans believing that Jil had more chemistry with Fatina than he ever had with Kaaya.
* Since a [[YaoiFangirl sizable chunk]] of the readership is into ''Manga/XxxHOLiC'' for the HoYay between Watanuki and Domeki, Himawari, Watanuki's ''canon'' {{Love Interest|s}}, has certainly gotten her share of hate. Remarkably not everyone hates her, but if it's not hate, they tend to pretend she doesn't exist at all, or that she doesn't count as a true love interest despite the fact she and Watanuki ''have'' actually said they love each other (most try to argue that 'it's just platonic'). It helps that ''she's'' seemingly into the said HoYay, too.
** Worth noting though, certain shippers actually ''like'' the idea of Doumeki's HoYay with Watanuki being [[OneSidedShipping one-sided]]. It's not so much that they ''like'' Watanuki/Himawari as that, in that way, Watanuki is completely clueless to Doumeki's feelings for him.
** Things got weird in this fandom when [[spoiler: Watanuki took over and confined himself to the wish shop]]. The result was Watanuki and Himawari (not very willingly, mind you) grew apart, but rather than him turning to Doumeki like many fans wanted, Watanuki instead started pining after Yuuko [[spoiler: after her sudden passing away]]. By this point, Yuuko was already so well-loved that no one could really turn their hate towards her [[spoiler: not to mention her being dead meant a) people didn't really consider her a threat and b) she had no control over Watanuki's actions]], and some instead started letting their frustrations out on ''Watanuki himself'' for being "such a moron" and basically not allowing their ship to come to fulfillment. To make things worse, the ShipTeasing with Doumeki didn't really stop either, which only made the Doumeki/Watanuki fangirls ''VERY'' bitter when, ultimately, their relationship remained one-sided to the very end.
*** Actually, most fans were *ahem*... [[{{Understatement}} dissatisfied]] with [[DistantFinale the]] [[DownerEnding series']] [[NoEnding ending]]... in major part because virtually ''every'' ship with some form of fan following got unceremoniously {{s|hipSinking}}unk to a certain degree.
*** Although as of the sequel starting, for now it seems like every ship has yet another chance given that things look to have gone back to how they were before Yuuko's death. Although, considering this is CLAMP, and there are some red flags that something's amiss, one must be wary that things are almost certainly not as they seem.
* ''Franchise/LupinIII'' fandom is small enough -- and the EstrogenBrigade portion of it especially so -- that people don't actively flame one another, for the most part. The Lupin/Jigen, Jigen/Goemon, Lupin/Goemon and Lupin/Zenigata shippers can often hold quite civil and mature conversations with one another. What they ''will not'' tolerate is Lupin/Fujiko. Or ''Anyone''/Fujiko, for that matter. Granted, she's devious as a cat and twice as manipulative, but you'd be hard pressed to find any named character on the show who ''isn't''. The Lupin fangirls hate her because she's "mean" to their cute little thief (who harasses every attractive woman he meets, including her); the Goemon fangirls don't care for her 'cause she seduced then dumped their man in the first season (the only really justified complaint on this list); the Jigen fangirls agree with their adorably scruffy gunman, that she's "trouble" (again, [[WeirdnessMagnet take look at the]] [[CartwrightCurse others' track records]]); and the Zenigata fangirls (yep, they exist) just think she's a [[RealWomenDontWearDresses vapid bimbo]] ([[ActionGirl who is capable of building an explosive device powerful enough to destroy a solid oak door]] [[TheSmartGuy but small enough to fit inside a high heel.]] This isn't even taking into account the number of times she's saved her male compatriots' necks by charming her way into serving as TheMole when needed. Or the number of times she's [[IWasJustPassingThrough freaked out at the thought of Lupin being in peril)]].
* ''CaptainTsubasa'' fandom, ''please'' stop bashing [[NaiveEverygirl Kumi Sugimoto]] for daring to have a crush on [[TheHero Tsubasa Ohzora]] and not being shy about it. She ''never ever'' hated [[{{Shorttank}} Sanae Nakazawa]] for liking him as well, and in the manga she went as far as to [[spoiler: confront Sanae on their common love for him (in a very apologetic and sweet way, gotta add)]], then [[spoiler: take Tsubasa's rejection ''and'' his love for Sanae with [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy incredible]] [[WiseBeyondTheirYears grace]], and [[ShipperOnDeck push him towards his soon-to-be]] VictoriousChildhoodFriend without any ulterior thoughts.]] Then ''why'' is she usually portrayed as an idiotic, cruel, Tsubasa-obsessed {{Yandere}} in fanwork?
* ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'': Gauron/Sōsuke shippers really don't like Kaname. Especially noticeable after the actions of Kaname in the later novels, where quite a few fans [[AbandonShipping Abandoned Ship]] and actually came to the conclusion that Sōsuke would have been better off continuing with being the [[TheStoic emotionless]], Assassin Saint Kashim and ending up with Gauron. In fact, there are actually numerous fans of the pairing that feel that Gauron ''loved Sōsuke and understood him more than Kaname''. Therefore, they "matched together better." This is, of course, ignoring all the [[StalkerWithACrush incredibly creepy]] and disturbing things that [[{{Yandere}} Gauron]] did, such as being a [[MemeticMolester pedophile molester]] that desired and obsessed over Sōsuke since the latter was ''[[{{Shotacon}} twelve]]'', killed (or attempted to) [[MurderTheHypotenuse all of Sosuke's friends / love interests]], laid waste to an entire city just so he could get off on seeing Sōsuke's [[HeroicBSOD depressed face]] one last time, and fantasizing about raping Sōsuke's corpse.
* Mainly averted with ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''. While Tsuna is in love with Kyoko, she is a bit of a SatelliteLoveInterest and most fans just ignore her existence or Tsuna's crush on her. Then again, there are [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys more guys]] with big parts than the girls in this series
* Any guesses as to why [[VisualNovel/{{CLANNAD}} Nagisa Furukawa]] is [[FanNickname nicknamed]] "Miss Cockroach"? A part of it comes from her HairAntennae. The rest... well, ask more than one Tomoya/(read: Tomoyo, Kyou, Ryou, Kotomi) shipper.
* Kaorin from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' is often portrayed as an evil, scheming {{Yandere}} bitch who will try to steal Sakaki away from Chiyo-chan... or Tomo, or Osaka, or whoever the preferred partner is.
* Crazy as it might sound, a fair number of [[Manga/OnePiece Zoro/Robin]] fans seem bitter towards Franky and tend to dismiss or bash him as immature and weird, which probably stems from how he's had a lot more meaningful interaction/character development with Robin than Zoro despite being on the same side for a shorter period of time. That's all. Seriously.
** And some Zoro/Nami fans have taken to bashing Tashigi due to being threatened by her ''possibly'' showing ''small'' hints that she ''might'' like Zoro and says she should inexplicably end up with Smoker instead. Painfully brainless when you consider it was never Tashigi's goal to be anyone's woman, and that she doesn't even NEED to end up with anyone at all (which leads to some UnfortunateImplications about what these fans seem to think the role of female characters ''as a whole'' should be.)
** Let's take special note of the enmity growing between the Luffy/Hancock and Luffy/Nami fans. Dear shippers: Luffy values people period. He'd probably think you were a loser if you hated on either Hancock or Nami. Please reread the damn story to appreciate the fact it's mostly about camaraderie and these things aren't worth dwelling upon seriously. Thank you.
*** Some [[BoysLove BL]] fans deride Nami for being an "abusive control freak" (AKA, typical type A {{Tsundere}}) and Luffy/Nami fans sometimes claim Hancock has no right to behave the way she does because ''[[TooDumbToLive there's no way a 12 year old slave girl could ever be seriously abused sexually or otherwise''.]]
**** Let's state the bottom line that any example of this trope in OP fandom is uniquely insane for what should be [[NoHuggingNoKissing obvious]] [[ChasteHero reasons]] - even confirmed by WordOfGod.
* ''Manga/BlackButler'': Elizabeth. Not only is she a DamselInDistress [[spoiler: [[TookALevelInBadass for a while]] ]], but she's engaged to her [[KissingCousins cousin]] Ciel, which puts her ''directly'' into the way of the HoYay between Ciel and Sebastian. Yep, she never had a chance with the {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s. [[spoiler: Though now that she has revealed herself as a LittleMissBadass in the manga, Elizabeth has gained some more fan support.]]
** [[spoiler:Mathilda Simmons]] is hated by YaoiFangirls because [[spoiler:Sebastian]] had sex with her in episode 17. The same sort of thing happened when he had sex with Beast in the manga.
* ''AfterSchoolNightmare'''s Kureha Fujishiro. Yeah, she's a ClingyJealousGirl who finds solace in Mashiro's company because she DoesNotLikeMen, but still... ''Poor, poor'' [[spoiler:childhood rape victim]] ''Kureha''. It's only made even worse by the DracoInLeatherPants status granted to [[TheCasanova Sou Mizuhashi]], Mashiro's other love interest, even when he's kind of a BastardBoyfriend...
* The cast of ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' have all fallen victim to this. Because you can rationalise pretty much any pairing with Haruhi, fanfic writers will portray any characters percieved as being in the way as evil, controlling, abusive, and the like, particularly Hikaru in Kaoru/Haruhi and vice-versa, or Mori in Honi/Haruhi, and often Tamaki in anything. Because HoYay can also be seen in any way you want, there's always at least one victim, usually Haruhi or that character's [[HeterosexualLifePartners Heterosexual Life Partner]].
** The biggest victims are [[spoiler: Tamaki's arranged fiancče]] Eclaire from the anime and Reiko the PerkyGoth from the manga, loathed by [[spoiler: Tamaki/Haruhi]] and [[spoiler: Hunny/Mori]] shippers respectively. [[spoiler: In Eclaire's case not even her ultimate IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy saved her from the fangirl loathing, and in the second it's made worse by Hunny ''marrying'' Reiko in the end, sending the Hunny/Mori fans in utter hategasms.]]
* A sizeable number of ''VampireKnight'' fans utterly hate Kaname for his [[IfICantHaveYou attitude]] toward Yuuki. There are also [[SlashFic Zero/Kaname]] shippers who deride Yuuki as a CanonSue who doesn't deserve the attention of either boy.
* There are two reasons why [[{{Macross}} Lynn Minmay]] is hated. One is her being an IdolSinger. The other is this trope, because how ''dare'' she like [[AcePilot Hikaru]] when [[BrokenBird Misa]] likes him too. The one thing that makes this iron-clad FanDumb is [[spoiler:the fact that Hikaru DOES hook up with Misa at the end, when Minmay rather [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy graciously gives up]] on Hikaru and decides to stay friends with them.]]
* From ''NoBra'': [[ThirdOptionLoveInterest Mizuki]], that ''skank''. Also, some people would like nothing more than to see Masato pushed out of the picture so that Yuki and Kaoru can hook up after reading about [[spoiler:some certain revelations about the true identity of "Maa-kun"]] in canon.
** And of course the fans who hate anyone who could possibly endanger the Masato/Yuki ship.
* With regards to ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' fandom, although it's a fairly logical AlternativeCharacterInterpretation to see Anthy as [[spoiler:a [[BrokenBird completely disenchanted and bitter]] girl l until the end of the series]], it tends to come from Utena/Touga shippers an awful lot.
** Additionally, several Utena/Anthy shippers hiss at Touga for being a [[ReallyGetsAround slutty]] SmugSnake of a ManipulativeBastard, and at Saionji too for being an [[DomesticAbuser abusive]] {{Jerkass}}. While it's true that both those guys are terrible pricks in canon, it ''still'' doesn't excuse how some fic writers turn them into cardboard monsters whose sole reason for existence is to make Anthy and Utena miserable for the sake of giving the girls extra woobie points.
** And while Shiori is one of [[TheScrappy the most hated characters in the show]] to begin with, it's no coincidence that a good part of the bashing she gets comes from Ruka/Juri fans. Yes, Shiori is a [[BitchInSheepsClothing very]] [[JerkassWoobie flawed]] person, but the fact that those shippers make her out to be the scum of the universe while [[DracoInLeatherPants completely ignoring Ruka's flaws]] (and [[PoorCommunicationKills Juri]]'s, for that matter) is still rather much.
** The [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy pairing of Juri/Miki]] has recently come under mass fire simply for being {{het|IsEw}}erosexual. Many Juri fans on Tumblr have cried "queer erasure" despite WordOfGod never having stated that Juri is entirely lesbian, and many fans considering her along with the rest of the cast [[EveryoneIsBi bisexual]].
* Since the ''DGrayMan'' fandom has a serious HetIsEw mentality, the most prominent female character, [[ActionGirl Lenalee]] [[KickChick Lee]], tends to get this a lot. This is exacerbated by her close friendship with resident LauncherOfAThousandShips MemeticSexGod Allen, which, while it hasn't been definitively shown to go beyond platonic friends, has enough ShipTease that the crazier {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s, particularly those who don't like her for [[RealWomenDontWearDresses being too girly]], are prone to abusing her. They also beautifully showcase the DoubleStandard by calling her a FauxActionGirl thanks to a period where she was BroughtDownToNormal, while continuing to uphold the {{badass}}itude of [[spoiler:Allen]], who underwent ''the exact same thing''.
** More than one [[BloodyMurder Arystar]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Krory]] / [[BarrierWarrior Miranda]] [[ButtMonkey Lotto]] fan has expressed hate towards Krory's girlfriend [[{{Yandere}} Eliade]]. [[spoiler: Even when, you know, she ''[[ILetGwenStacyDie dies]]'' in Krory's introductory arc.]]
* ''{{Hellsing}}'' fandom is guilty of this, too. The most glaring example is the hatred against Integra in Alucard/Seras stories. One has her killing herself out of a broken heart. Others have her Seras almost murdering her with a plastic bag. Another has Alucard telling Seras to kill her. Seras's canon love interest, Pip Bernadotte? Doesn't seem to exist in manga based fics.
** Also, lots of rabid Integra/Alucard fans seem to think that Seras's initial insecurities about becoming a vampire and [[MsFanservice her fanservicy wardrobe]] [[RealWomenDontWearDresses make her immediately inferior]] to a more self-assured and {{Bifauxnen}}-like LadyOfWar like Integra.
* Ah, ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' fans. Some Shinichi/Conan x Haibara fans seems to ''really'' have this mentality going on in regards to Ran Mouri, huh? Ironically, the Shinichi x Heiji fans aren't as hateful towards her.
** The ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' yaoi fandom's peaceful in general, especially when compared to the het shippers. Try starting a poll on ANY ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' forum of ANY language debating which female character is their favorite, let alone choosing between Haibara and Ran. [[InternetBackdraft Within a couple of pages]], it becomes a ballot-stuffing match between Shinichi/Conan x Ai and Shinichi/Conan x Ran shippers, arguing that Ran is a whiny, {{chickifi|cation}}ed ExtremeDoormat that can't think for herself without Shinichi or how Haibara is just a [[{{Wangst}} wangsty]] SympatheticSue with only a few interchangable emotions. The Shinichi/Conan x Ai and Shinichi/Conan x Ran shippers are (depending on the forum) either kept to [[ThisIsMySide their own separate threads]] or couple discussion is banned completely.
** On the other hand, as a result, all female character polls would just not have Ai and Ran (In alphabetical order) in the options, calling them "minor female character polls."
* In the ''[[VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi Higurashi]]'' fandom it's best not to mention [[LoveTriangle Keiichi/Rena or Keiichi/Mion]] outside of fanart, [=AMVs=] (obviously not in comments, though) and fanfiction. Any other pairing is surprisingly out of shipping wars though, even ones relating to Keiichi (probably because they're considered not canon). Considering the series, within fan-creations the opposing characters typically do die.
* ''ShamanKing'' gets loads of ShipToShipCombat, and to list all of them would take up several pages of text (and it did). Many Yoh/Tamao and Yoh/any guy shippers bash Yoh's childhood fiancee Anna, and a couple of Yoh/Anna shippers bash Tamao because of her one-sided crush on Yoh. Additionally, rabid [=RenHoro=] shippers hate Kokoro for apparently sinking their ship when [[spoiler:it was revealed that she's actually the spirit of Horohoro's first love]] and Jeanne for [[spoiler:ending up as Ren's wife or girlfriend, or ''at very least'' as the mother of his child]].
* [[FoeYay Sakuragi/Rukawa]] shippers in the ''SlamDunk'' fandom are incredibly guilty of bashing [[CuteClumsyGirl Haruko]] [[ThePollyanna Akagi]], sometimes even for [[RealWomenDontWearDresses misogynistic reasons]].
** To a smaller degree, Akira Sendoh also gets bashed by Sakuragi/Rukawa fans. They tend more to [[ShipMates pair him up with]] DeadpanSnarker Koshino, though.
* Mira from ''BakuganBattleBrawlers New Vestroia'' is hated by Dan/Runo shippers.
* ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'': Ironically for a series where pretty much all the contenders in the respective {{Unwanted Harem}}s of Hayate and Wataru are remarkably civil toward each other, the shippings fandom tends to be given to bashing the competition. Especially prevalent now with the introduction of the [[EnsembleDarkhorse wildly popular]] first girlfriend of Hayate, Athena, coupled with the series cranking up the ShipTease UpToEleven. The end of Chapter 265 really threw the Hayate x Athena fans into a frenzy when [[spoiler: Athena pulls an IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy and decides to leave Hayate with his happy life under Nagi, with some ShipTease of Hayate/Nagi in the last page]]. Cue some fans threatening to stop reading the manga or that Nagi isn't good enough for Hayate. And this is forgetting that Athena and Nagi, despite not meeting each other, would probably get along well: Nagi [[spoiler: ''gave up her entire inheritance'' to enable Hayate to rescue Athena without the baggage of a SadisticChoice]] and she has shown that, while she may be jealous of other girls with interest in Hayate, she can consider them good friends -- like she does with Nishizawa. On the other hand, Athena has expressed admiration for [[spoiler: Nagi's sacrifice]] as well as approval of Nagi for giving Hayate a life where he could be happy.
** It is bit jarring since it's been shown time and time again that Hayate doesn't have any attraction for Nagi at all, viewing her as just a little kid. While it is outright stated that she [[spoiler: is the person he wants to protect the most]], it's more of a BigBrotherInstinct.
** On the other hand, shippers of all kinds (not only the Hayate x Nagi faction) pretty much started ''screaming'' the moment Athena entered into the picture, greatly increasing the ShipToShipCombat since according to them, Athena ''had'' to be a stupid and evil {{Yandere}} who completely ruined Hayate's life. Yep, her HiddenDepths came ''after'' a while, but sheeesh.
** Now that Nagi and Athena have met, [[spoiler: Athena does throw something of a challenge toward an oblivious Nagi. However, said challenge is mostly of the playful, friendly competition type and displays nowhere near the vitriol (heck, no vitriol at all, for that matter) the more extreme fans of either side purport.]] So, again, the characters of the manga prove to be much more mature about the whole thing than their shippers.
* ''MahouSenseiNegima'':
** The series is rife with ShipTease, but when the popular Negi/Asuna ship [[ShipSinking hit an]] [[LongLostRelative iceberg]], people started coming up with any excuse possible.
** [[CuteWitch Anna Yurievna "Anya" Cocolova]] was already seen as a bratty and bitchy {{Tsundere}} by Negi/Other Girls fans ''before'' the Negi/Asuna ship was damaged. Yes, she's a BrattyHalfPint, but she's not the Little Bitch From Hell!
** Of course, one probable reason for so little of this is the fact that most shippers' attention is focused on [[SchoolgirlLesbians Setsuna/Konoka]], and ''everybody'' hates the [[StalkerWithACrush major]] [[PsychoLesbian person]] trying to get in the way of ''that''.
* ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' being an extreme HoYay fodder, this treatment is usually typical for any of the ladies. Especially [[MsFanservice Yaone]], who on top of being a [[RealWomenDontWearDresses girly, assertive female]], also gets in the way between Hakkai/any of the Sanzou group, or [[FoeYay Goku/Kougaiji]].
* Tensions were beginning to peak in the fandom's hate of Haruna in ''ToLoveRu'' for getting in the way of other ships, notably Rito/Lala and Rito/Yui. The manga was cut short before the hate could truly begin to show, but it was most definitely bubbling under the surface and getting worse. Doesn't help that Haruna was ostensibly based on illustrator Kentarou Yabuki's wife before he found out she was cheating on him and the subsequent messy divorce which cut the manga short in the first place, even when that's not '''Haruna's''' fault.
* Go to the ''KonjikiNoGashBell'' fandom and ask whether [[GirlNextDoor Suzume]] or [[IdolSinger Megumi]] would be better for [[KidWithTheLeash Kiyomaro]]. You'll find yourself trapped between Megumi/Kiyomaro fans who scream that Suzume is [[TheDitz too brainless]] [[DamselInDistress and helpless]] for him and Suzume/Kiyomaro fans who yell back that Megumi is too much of a MarySue to deserve Kiyomaro's love.
* [[Manga/FruitsBasket Tohru Honda]]. Not only is she attacked by ''Fruits Basket'' fans for [[RealWomenDontWearDresses being too "weak" and "stupid"]] or "a PuritySue", but she also comes under fire for getting in the way of [[HoYay Kyo/Yuki]]. And let's not forget the hate and CharacterExaggeration [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Kyo]] gets from rabid [[ShelteredAristocrat Yuki]]/Tohru fans because [[spoiler:Tohru chose Kyo and not Yuki]] even though it's also established that [[spoiler:Yuki's interest in Tohru [[LovingAShadow stemmed from him viewing her as a mother figure]]]].
** We cannot forget the terrible hate that [[StoicWoobie Isuzu "Rin" Sohma]] got for being Hatsuharu's [[BrokenBird harsh yet well-intentioned]] girlfriend, thus meaning she was "cockblocking" Haru and Yuki. Even worse, ''they were sexually active''. Fans were so bitchy towards "Rin the slut" that they ''cheered'' when [[spoiler: she was tricked by Ren and then ''horribly'' mauled by Akito]], since that "meant" she was getting "what she deserved"... [[spoiler: Until Akito turned out to be a girl, too, thus the same fans who bashed Rin [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap took pity on her]] - and then started bashing ''Akito'', after [[DracoInLeatherPants cheerfully praising her terrible actions]] [[DoubleStandard when they thought she was a boy]].]]
* ''TowardTheTerra'' is largely [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys too free of any potentially interfering female characters]] for this trope to prevail. But Artella takes a hit from it for demonstrating clear romantic interest in Tony (and actually being in a relationship with him in the manga) when fans prefer to pair him with [[TheHero Jomy]].
* [[IllGirl Ill Boy]] Takaaki in ''Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ'' took quite the heat from Bubbles/Boomer shippers, not to mention the general Powerpuffs/Rowdyruffs shippers who migrated to the series in hopes that the girls would hook up with their evil counterparts. Any other male that the Powerpuffs showed interest in also got skewered hard, as they weren't as "edgy or interesting" as the Rowdyruff Boys. That is, the same Rowdyruff boys who were barely major villains to begin with and only appeared in two episodes of this adaptation.
* In ''{{NANA}}'', while it is true that [[spoiler: Sachiko]] ''did'' get in between [[spoiler: Hachi and her boyfriend]], it still sucks that she's the one who gets almost all the shit. Same can be said for [[spoiler: Reira]] and [[spoiler: Yuri]] in later chapters.
* In the ''NabariNoOu'' fandom some Yoite/Miharu shippers call Thobari a pedophile, construing his loyalty and affection for Miharu as [[HopelessSuitor him just wanting to get into Miharu's pants]].
* A few Lotor/Allura shippers in the ''{{Voltron}}'' fandom demonize heroic Keith into a boorish bastard who just wants Allura for sex, or a crazed StalkerWithACrush who would sooner kill her than let her be with anyone else.
* Riho Yamazaki of ''NightWalker'' is assaulted on all sides by Shido/Cain and Shido/Yayoi shippers.
* ''{{Durarara}}'' is starting to get some of this, among Shizuo/Vorona and Shizuo/Izaya fangirls. Damn ShipToShipCombat! Just from the few stories written about either pairing, Vorona is portrayed as a [[TheVamp selfish slut]] that doesn't care for Shizuo and wants to lure him into false security so she can kill him. As for Izaya, while not bashed outright, he goes through BadassDecay and is defeated by Vorona in a one on one combat easily so she could end up with Shizuo. Fans are forgetting that Izaya is the only character besides Simon that can fight Shizuo one on one when Vorona clearly ran away the first time she came in contact with Shizuo.
** Kida's girlfriend Saki Miyajima has recently been getting the same treatment from [[MindGameShip Izaya/Kida]] (or anyone with Kida) fans. Most of the time, she's portrayed as a leech that is zapping the life out of Kida or a useless slut that can't do anything and clings to Kida to make her pain go away. Bonus points if this is the reason that the two break up in the story.
* The ''EfAFairyTaleOfTheTwo'' fandom is very small, but there ''is'' quite the hate towards [[{{Tsundere}} Kei Shindou]] for getting in between [[ReclusiveArtist Hiro Hirono]] and [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Miyako Miyamura.]]
* It's hard to determine who is hated more for "getting in between" [[TheWoobie Ritsuka]] and [[ManipulativeBastard Soubi]] in ''Manga/{{Loveless}}'': [[HugeSchoolgirl Yuiko]] or [[ChristmasCake Hitomi-sensei]].
* The ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' fandom is certainly a clear example, the main ShipToShipCombat is shown between Index and Misaka Mikoto, with the later fandom willing Index to die since Touma spends most of his time cohabitating with her, who lives in the same room on his bed and most of the AccidentalPervert moments are related to her with Touma. Of course this isn't where the hatred ends after reading a while the most common "arguments" to justify their flawed reasons are: "She is a nun" (when in this series is clear that NunsAreMikos and despite she is supposed to be at training never acts as one); "She is more like a little sister for him" (Touma oftenly gets embarrased for her on most of his AccidentalPervert moments and that he is always afraid that Index will leave him if she manages to know he actually lost his memories).
* Being a middle schooler does NOT protect Fuuka Matsui of ''Manga/KodomoNoOmocha'' from being bashed ''heavily'' by rabid Sana/Akito fangirls. Sana's [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Unlucky Childhood Friend]] Naozumi isn't exactly liked, either.
* In ''MiraiNikki'', Yuno Gasai loves Yukiteru "Yukki" Amano. Then, Akise Aru also falls for Yukiteru. Yukiteru's feelings are more directed to Yuno than Akise, who happens to be [[HoYay male]] like him, and Yuno is the most popular character of the series due to her ''[[{{Yandere}} strong]]'' feelings, [[DarkActionGirl her fighting skills]] and [[MsFanservice her physical beauty]]. Guess what, Akise is ''loathed'' by the fandom, and Yuno/Yukki fans even ''cheered'' [[spoiler: when Yuno killed him.]]
** It goes both ways, actually. The Akise/Yukki shippers hate Yuno for the reasons mentioned above and claim that Yukki being with Akise is a much healthier relationship than with {{Y|andere}}uno. This is backed up by [[spoiler: Akise getting killed and proving that Yuno plans on killing him just to start the whole game over.]] Fortunately, this ShipToShipCombat only shows up in relatively few fandom circles.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': After episode 7, [[spoiler: Hitomi Shizuki]] started to get LOTS of hate for [[spoiler: confronting Sayaka on her feelings for Kamijou, and ''confessing'' to him a little later. Which, unbeknownst to Kamijou and Hitomi, kickstarts [[TheWoobie an already VERY unstable and traumatized Sayaka]]'s [[DespairEventHorizon fall into despair]] [[FaceHeelTurn that ultimately led her to become a witch]].]] She had no idea that such actions would bring that horrible mess, never finds out what's going on ''and'' is said [[spoiler: to fall into depression when Sayaka's lifeless body is found]], but since a part of the fandom seems to believe that [[spoiler: Sayaka's healing of Kamijou's arm apparently means she's "his owner" and that he is ''required'' to become her prize-boyfriend]], the girl is "a traitor bitch who is completely to blame for our {{Woobie}}'s suffer for [[spoiler: stealing her man away]]". Which brings MASSIVE UnfortunateImplications since it invokes the idea that a woman's worth as a whole person is bound to [[spoiler: [[UnrequitedTragicMaiden acting selflessly]] to the point of being a LoveMartyr in regards to a LoveTriangle]]; since [[spoiler: Hitomi]] defies these harmful ideas and [[spoiler: refuses to give up on her own happiness when Sayaka doesn't take her chance to ask Kamijou out]], she is to be hated and slutshamed and blamed for everything that went wrong.
** Interestingly, they seem to hate [[spoiler:Kamijou]] too, with most preferring to see Sayaka hook up with [[LesYay Kyoko Sakura]], who only [[TookALevelInKindness Takes A Level In Kindness]] while Sayaka [[spoiler:is obviously going crazy... which happens ''after'' Kamijou doesn't notice her feelings.]]. Not to mention the fact that [[spoiler:Mami specifically ''warned'' Sayaka against healing Kamijou's arm to make him "owe" her.]]
** {{Yuri fan}}s aren't much better, since in some circles, [[CoolBigSis Mami]] takes lots of heat from [[DarkMagicalGirl Homura]] / [[AllLovingHero Madoka]] fans. While this has been around almost from the beginning, it has been specially hard after Episode 10's revelation about [[spoiler: the Mami from the third timeline crossing the DespairEventHorizon and trying to kill everyone to spare them from becoming witches]], which apparently means she's a "psychotic" and "weak" bitch and "inferior" to Homura. \\
** It's also extremely annoying to see Homura/Madoka fans compare Sayaka unfavorably to Homura and say that because Sayaka [[spoiler: fell into despair for, among many other things, a ''male'' like Kamijou]] whereas Homura [[spoiler: became a hardened shell of her old self almost exclusively for a ''female'' like Madoka]], the first is "shallow", "offensive" and "slutty" while the second is "a beautiful and feminist woman in love". [[DoubleStandard What]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass the]] [[InsaneTrollLogic HELL?!]]
** Some of the Kyouko/Mami shippers are rather disgruntled towards Sayaka to the point of bashing her for being a "whiny, overly emotional trainwreck who doesn't deserve Kyouko's kindness." [[ShipToShipCombat The results aren't pretty]].
* Are you a ''{{Kizuna}}'' fan? That's good. Do you ship the OfficialCouple of [[{{Tsundere}} Ranmaru]] [[HeirToTheDojo Samejima]] and [[HeroicBastard Kei]] [[TallDarkAndSnarky Enjouji]]? Great! But please, ''please'' lay off [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling Kai]] [[HotBlooded Sagano]]. Don't bring up bashing to this kinda peaceful fandom, damn it.
* While the ''Manga/SoulEater'' fandom isn't as loud with this as most other series, it still has its share. There are few cases that whenever a shipper pairs Maka up with other characters-Kid, Chrona, or even Asura- it seems that they find the need to give Soul hell. Some fans have Soul being an abusive boyfriend, a cheater, or just the {{Jerkass}} that they see him as- even though it is clearer than anything else that Soul is more devoted to Maka than most other characters could ever be and that the last thing he would ever do to her is leave her.
* The ''BubblegumCrisis Tokyo 2040'' fandom really likes their [[OfficeLady Linna]] x Priss [[HoYay Les Yay]]. It'd be better if they didn't bash the everloving crap of the closest that Priss has to a male love interest, [[FairCop Leon McNichol]]. He's not an idiot, he's not pure DumbMuscle, and damn it Priss ''does'' develop a soft spot for him and all, so he cannot be as "horrible" and "stupid" as {{Yuri Fan}}s paint him.
* Eleanor Campbell from ''VictorianRomanceEmma''. Is it her fault that William Jones and Emma are in love, or that her {{Jerkass}} father the Viscount is pressuring her into marrying William to save their wealth? Nope. She's not ''as'' hated as other people here, but she still gets pot shots from time to time.
* Yoshiki from ''VenusVersusVirus'' gets a hand full of this; he's the boyfriend of the protagonist, Sumire. It makes sense, since he's the love interest of the protagonist in a GirlsLove series. It helps that [[spoiler:he turns out to be a villain in the manga and anime, especially the manga.]]
* Yasuna from ''KashimashiGirlMeetsGirl'' is generally disliked by the fandom. She's the love interest of Hazumu for most of the series, and gets the most attention from her. She's a passive girl who Hazumu deeply cares about, but the most popular couple is Tomari and Hazumu. It helps that in the, more popular, anime she has different characterization and takes things the wrong way causing an AssPull.
* In the ''LightNovel/{{No 6}}'' fandom, Safu is rather hated for supposedly getting in the way of [[YaoiGuys Shion/Nezumi]] -- despite the fact that [[spoiler:Shion/Nezumi is the OfficialCouple and Safu's romantic feelings are unrequieted]].
* Shannon in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', for getting in the way of Battler and Beatrice's true love. Nevermind that [[spoiler:Shannon IS Beatrice in the first place. Sort of. It's very complicated.]]
* Though relatively new the [=KyoheixHibino=] shippers of ''KamisamaDolls'' can be excruciatingly vile. Don't believe it? Check out the comments for episode 11 from Crunchy Roll's stream, [[spoiler: despite the fact that it is an FromBadToWorse FlashBack featuring Kyohei, Aki and Mahiru taking on a PoweredByAForsakenChild Kakashi that is seeking one of ''them'' to be its next battery, barely surviving the encounter and doing permanent damage to each of their psyche]]'s the most common comments were about Mahiru interfering with their ship, calls for her head and a desire for her to [[SarcasmMode Get a Life...]]
* The ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum'' fandom is showing baby symptoms of this, as a side-effect of the ShipToShipCombat among Himari/Kanba and [[spoiler: Shouma/Himari]] fans. [[spoiler: Shouma]] is the one that is starting to take the worst, ''specially'' after episodes 19 and 20 reveal him as [[spoiler: Himari's soulmate]] - which has sent a good part of the [[spoiler: Himari/Kanba]] fringe into huge hategasms, as they think he's [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass "a pansy"]] and "less worthy" of [[spoiler: Himari]] than [[spoiler: Kanba.]]
* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** Lisanna Strauss gets this a lot from militant Natsu/Lucy fans, especially after [[spoiler: it was revealed that she actually isn't dead and is now back with the main cast]], very often being portrayed as the epitome of RonTheDeathEater to justify everyone suddenly hating her and deciding she needs to die. This is completely ignoring her canon personality of being an absolute sweetheart, and the fact that [[ShipperOnDeck she has actually instructed Lucy to stick close to Natsu as well]]. This may be due in part to the anime, which added a ''lot'' of ShipTease to Natsu and Lisanna's relationship as children. In the manga, the only hint of romance between them came from Lisanna jokingly asking if she could become his wife when they grew up.
** Lucy herself is never killed off by Lisanna fans. It's much more convenient for them to claim Lucy was just a replacement for Lisanna all this time and have Fairy Tail kick her to the curb or otherwise ignore her and drive her to leaving the guild once Lisanna returns. This is helped by a {{Filler}} scene added to the anime that suggested Lucy was a lot like Lisanna and that Natsu, who in other filler scenes is shown to be really attached to Lisanna, may have been drawn to her because of that (whereas the manga only has Lisanna tease Natsu a bit when they're really young and Gildarts jabbing at him when he comes back from a job, and no comparison between her and Lucy ever).
** Juvia Loxar, while she's a generally popular character and doesn't get as much pairing-related heat as Lisanna, does get some flack for liking/being in love with Gray. Canonically, while she ''is'' a ClingyJealousGirl around him and people (read: women and oddly, [[spoiler: Lyon]]) close to him, all in all, she's a sweet and caring person. Also, most, if not all of her antics concerning him, are pure comic relief, and later on in the manga, she ''does'' tone down her obsessive behavior. But that doesn't matter to some non-Gray/Juvia shippers (mostly Gray/Lucy fans) along with the facts Juvia is actually ''friends'' with other women (''including'' the ones she thinks are her "love rivals", such as Lucy) and does care for the guild and all its members. [[RonTheDeathEater They just zero in on her obsessive part of her personality]], and slam her for being a total creepy bitch who won't ask Gray out like a normal person (completely ignoring how she attempted to hang out him with a couple of times after she joined Fairy Tail and asked him out to lunch) and needs to die. Or get together with [[spoiler: Lyon Bastia since Sherry is (conveniently and blessedly) out of the picture]].
** On the subject of Juvia, almost all [[spoiler: Lyon/Juvia]] fics paint Gray as neglectful or abusive. There are plenty of other girls in the guild he has good relationships with (Lucy, Erza, and Cana stand out), and really, is it that hard to have Gray let poor Juvia down gently?
*** On the flip-side, some Gray/Juvia fans paint Lyon as an obsessive stalker who just wants to steal Juvia away from Gray. Granted, Lyon's personality did deteriorate quite a bit after he developed his crush on her, but he eventually pulls an IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy and stops pursuing Juvia after he sees that she cares too much about Gray to ever leave him.
** Natsu himself sometimes takes some hate from Gray/Lucy and Loke/Lucy fans.
** Not quite as numerous any longer, but for a while it was fairly common for Gajeel/Levy shippers to bash Jet and Droy in their fics. Jet and Droy have monster crushes on Levy, who rejected both of them and sees them only as her two best friends and teammates. In fact, they ''do'' react badly to Gajeel joining Fairy Tail - but only because the first time they met him, he brutally beat the hell out of them and Levy. They become friendlier to him after he saves Levy's life, but apparently some fans missed this.
** Jellal is something of a BaseBreaker to begin with, but he gets a lot of crap from some Natsu/Erza fans, who like to ignore the tiny little detail that all the horrible stuff he did in the beginning was while he was under the influence of brainwashing and possession by an evil spirit after being horrifically tortured.
* Within the ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' fandom, there is a radical minority of fans who never seem to give Casca, the female lead of the story, [[RealWomenDontWearDresses a break]]. They either hate her because they claim that she's less of an ActionGirl after becoming Guts' {{official|Couple}} {{Love Interest|s}}, or because [[OneTruePairing she's not with Griffith]], OR because she's getting in the way of [[HoYay Guts being with Griffith.]] Pay close attention to her relationship with Griffith, as some fans are so steadfast at making them the OneTruePairing to ''disturbing'' degrees, the highest degree which would involve [[spoiler: downplaying the fact that Griffith sold out his friends to become a demon lord and as his very FIRST action upon become one, he horrifically rapes her to a very sadistic degree in front of Guts out of spite, which proves to rob her of her personhood, her sanity, nearly three years of her life, and to top it off, her unborn child. It's taken up a notch when some fans argue that she ''enjoyed being raped.'']] Still, some are confident that Casca well regain her senses - meaning that she will realize that she's in love with Griffith, not Guts. And if [[FaceHeelTurn Casca can't be with Griffith]] upon getting cured of her insanity? Well, [[KilledOffForReal she's of no use then.]]
** And of course, concerning the [=GutsxGriffith=] shippers... Casca is ''definitely'' not in the picture here.
* Rei Miyamoto from ''HighSchoolOfTheDead'' not only gets slammed for being a borderline FauxActionGirl ''and'' daring to [[TheMourningAfter be troubled over her boyfriend Hisashi's death]], but for being in between [[AntiHero Takeshi Komuro]] and [[LadyOfWar Saeko Busujima]].
* You know CLAMPSchoolDetectives fans are way too invested in HoYay shipping (even for ''is'' Creator/{{CLAMP}} fandom standards) when they pour hatred on ''a kindergarten girl'' like Nagisa because Suoh likes her romantically when he could be more invested in Nokoru. Her best friend Utako manages to mostly dodge hate, but mostly because she's paired up with Akira in canon and thus she takes him outta the picture.
* ''SakamichiNoApollon'' is starting to get this. Because how ''dares'' Ritsuko be a cute girl and catch Kaoru's romantic attentions when, according to some {{yaoi fangirl}}s, there's only HoYay making out with Sentarou to be done!
* In ''Manga/AirGear'', asking who should be Ikki's love interest is like asking for a bloodbath. The sections that support [[{{Meganekko}} Ringo]], those that prefer Simca and the third ones supporting [[WrenchWench Kururu]] shall NOT meet each other, lest we'll have massive flame wars. And this doesn't count [[HoYay/AirGear the Kazu and/or Ak/g/ito fans]]...
** Akito's ClingyJealousGirl Yayoi Nakayama seems to be the one attracting more hate, though. It got so bad at some point that rabid Akito fangirls ''actually put up online petitions to try pressuring Creator/OhGreat into killing off Yayoi so Ak/gito would be "free" from her''.
* Are you into ''AquarionEVOL''? Please, never ask whether Amata should've chosen Mikono or Zessica. Many Zessica fans (with some of them tending to use her as a PossessionSue) will immediately bash/slutshame Mikono for catching Amata's attention ''and'' call Amata an UngratefulBastard [[spoiler: for rejecting Zessica's love declaration and choosing Mikono over her]]. In the meantime, Mikono fans will likely retaliate via slutshaming Zessica and calling her "weak" and "shallow" for being overly depressed over [[spoiler: Amata's rejection and getting body-jacked by Mykage afterwards.]]
** Don't forget how some Kagura fans are ''pissed'' at Amata for being the dude Mikono loves despite also being Kagura's MoralityPet, and thus they also call Amata a tool and an asshole who stole Mikono from Kagura. Because for these fans, the fact that Mikono is the NiceGirl whom Kagura is obsessed with means that Mikono automatically owes Kagura pussy and Amata is a cockblock who steals her away from him, huh?
* Miraculously averted ([[TemptingFate by now]]) in ''Manga/KurokoNoBasuke'''s English fandom, where Momoi and Aida (who'd normally get hated and slutshamed to Hell and back) are mostly ignored but safe (and often [[PairTheSpares paired]] [[LesYay up]]). It's actually the ''Japanese'' fandom that indulges into this: the most common victims are Kagami for the avid Aomine/Kuroko shippers, and Kuroko for the Kagami/[[spoiler:Himuro]] shippers.
* Ren Kougyoku of ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'', in addition to getting flack and hate for [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass being girly and/or for not being (supposedly) as badass/strong as Morgiana or other girls]], [[KickTheDog separating Ugo from Aladdin]], and being a Type A Tsundere and a Yandere (temporarily for comic relief), is also bashed (usually by [[HoYay Sinbad x Jafar]] and [[FoeYay Sinbad x Judal]] shippers) for having a crush on/falling in love with [[MrFanservice Sinbad]] and is seen as pathetic by the very same shippers for being obsessed with/in love with someone who isn't interested in her. This ignores the fact that [[spoiler: [[UnrequitedTragicMaiden she knows and admits]] that Sinbad doesn't return her feelings and she likely doesn't have a chance with him]] ''and'' how she has [[LonelyRichKid severe]] [[IJustWantToHaveFriends and genuine]] [[NoSocialSkills issues]] as well.
** Not to mention this can be seen as a DoubleStandard as Kougyoku is despised for, supposedly, being obsessed with Sinbad, meanwhile Judal, the {{Bishounen}} ''male'' villain, who is actually, [[InLoveWithYourCarnage psychotically, and completely obsessed with the handsome king]] not only is adored for his fixation (in spite of it being canonically murderous), he's frequently shipped with him.
* Being a harem series, ''{{Sekirei}}'' is not immune to this even with strong themes of TrueCompanions and the stated desire of the MarryThemAll solution. Musubi gets this for being the primary heroine, an IdiotHero, and supposedly in the way of whichever member of Minato's harem is preferred. It isn't unusual to find fanfiction where she is killed off, written out of the harem, or completely ignored. The other primary target is Mikogami Hayato, because he is a very real stumbling block to the FanPreferredCouple of [[FoeYayShipping Minato and Akitsu]]. Discussion of his impending death and Akitsu running off to join Minato's harem occurs literally every single time a new chapter is released.
* In SensualPhrase, the lead female of the manga ''and'' [[BastardBoyfriend Sakuya's]] canonical girlfriend [[NaiveEverygirl Aine]] suffered a SEVERE case of DemotedToExtra in the anime. In the meantime, Sakuya was seen [[CompensatedDating accepting dates]] from an AloofDarkHairedGirl named Missa, who often snarked at him. When Aine was brought into the anime plot not only she was seen as a MarySue by the fangirls, but she was loathed by those who still shipped Sakuya and Missa.
* Parodied by [[http://definitelynotjean.tumblr.com/post/52981555837/i-just-want-to-clear-something-up this post]] from the Manga/AttackOnTitan fandom, which sounds a LOT like stuff that bashers from all fandoms say ''completely seriously''.
* Defied by the Anime/{{Free}} fandom. When the anime was announced, [[http://liebeliebe.tumblr.com/post/45581730711/hetamushitama-liebeliebe misogyny-based hate]] [[http://frozenviolets.tumblr.com/post/48933996829/sugarkitty-chan-sonjanevermind-i-hate-this against any theoretical female charas]] was spotted soon. However, both back then and when the girls (club manager Go Matsuoka and club counselor Miho Amakata) showed up in the first episode, [[http://doitsutheshizzle.tumblr.com/post/54533691413/trapruka-its-called-swimbros-stop the fandom quickly started to shoot the whining down]] and defend both Go and Miho. Not to mention, right after [[DarkSkinnedBlond Mikoshiba]] appeared and [[LoveAtFirstsight started crushing on Go]] ''hard'', the [[ShipMates fans rushed to ship them]] - both because of the {{Adorkable}} potential ''and'' to keep Gou safe and away from the other guys.
** However, ever since episode 6 the fandom plays it straight... in regards to Go's ''brother'' Rin. After [[spoiler: his less-than-graceful reaction to defeating Haruka in a race]], the Makoto/Haruka shippers have been screaming for his death. The Rin/Haruka fans have retaliated by accusing Makoto of being boring (at best) or codependent/clingy (at worst)
** Gou's school friend Chigusa Hanamura has gotten occasional pot-shots from Makoto/other guys fans after Makoto praised her cute looks once. [[http://fyeahcontroversialcharacters.tumblr.com/tagged/Chigusa-Hanamura The fandom has reacted accordingly]].
** The apparition of Sousuke Yamazaki re-ignited the shipwars, with fans on both the Makoto/Haruka and Rin/Haruka sides shaking and crying at the possible "threat".
** There is a rather famous scanlator/translator who has been accused of being extremely biased towards Rin/Haruka and hating the Hell out of Makoto for being "the other woman". i.e., she would intentionally post snippy comments abnout Makoto ''in the Makoto tag and in his birthday'', whine about how codependent he's to Haruka, and then [[http://wankgate.dreamwidth.org/30125.html?thread=109745069 post supposed "translations"of the novels]] [[http://fencer-x.tumblr.com/post/90687457109/trigger-warning-for-makoto-seemingly-trying-to-commit proving how obsessive he is]] to make him look bad.
* {{Hamtaro}}: There are some Hamtaro/Bijou shippers that tend to write fanfictions that portray Boss as the bad guy, and sometimes even make him act very out of character either in a StalkerWithACrush persona, or a CrazyJealousGuy persona, or a combination of the two based on a kind of LoveMakesYouEvil way of thinking. While the "real" Boss (i.e. non-fanfiction written) does tend to get jealous at times due to his crush, it's unlikely that it would lead to such a drastic FaceHeelTurn that would make him the unlikable and unsympathetic villain that he becomes in some of these fanfictions.
* While ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' had a healthy ShipToShipCombat among the fans of the nine {{One True Pairing}}s introduced in the series (refer to the [[YMMV/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows YMMV page]]), by the time [[WhamEpisode FLAG 267]] (the penultimate chapter) came rolling in, almost every shipper of the Goddess Hosts (particularly most Keima/[[PatientChildhoodLoveInterest Tenri]] fans) wanted [[spoiler:[[TheGenericGuy Chihiro]]]] out of the picture, notwithstanding the MaybeEverAfter ending the chapter after.
* In ''AkameGaKill'', there are quite a few fans who would like [[TheSocialDarwinist Esdese]] to MurderTheHypotenuse [[{{Tsundere}} Mine]] ([[spoiler:which, given the recent events and the AnyoneCanDie nature of the story, might actually come to pass]]) and have [[TheHero Tatsumi]] all to herself. Keep in mind that, while certainly humanizing, Esdese's love for Tatsumi is still extremely selfish, as she doesn't care about Tatsumi's opinion and want to impose her own feelings upon him. The fact that Mine's crimes amount to being a {{vigilante|Man}} who kills despicable criminals, in contrast to the craploads of good people Esdese mercilessly slaughtered, doesn't seem to hinder the Tatsumi/Esdese shippers in any way.
