->''I adore Kairi from ''Kingdom Hearts'' but she's bashed by Riku/Sora shippers simply for living! Cut the girl some slack, it's not her fault that the main guy is in love with her.''\\

Yes, DieForOurShip even happens here and not just in the {{Dating Sim}}s.

Some sections have gotten so big that they were moved to their own pages:

----
* As quoted above, Kairi of ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' is rabidly hated by many [[HoYay Sora/Riku]] shippers despite being a kind-hearted princess type of [[TwoGuysAndAGirl a trio of friends]] without much overt romantic interest. Generally, she's portrayed by the shippers as a selfish homophobic bitch who hates Riku (usually due to one scene in which she expressed distrust toward him, which [[RivalTurnedEvil was eventually justified]]) and wants Sora for herself, and usually ends up dying in some over-the-top fashion. This is despite the fact that the significance of the interest in Kairi has absolutely nothing to do with who ends up with whom. The importance of both boys crushing on Kairi is that it binds the three friends to a child-like atmosphere in their otherwise dark experiences. Two friends competing over a girl (who is also a friend). What can be more heartwarming...
** There also exists a cult following for Sora/Namine that are positively vicious toward Kairi, making her out to be [[RonTheDeathEater dumb, selfish, and evil]] while insisting that Namine is [[PuritySue perfectly wonderful in every way,]] so she deserves to be with Sora. On the flip side, whenever Sora/Kairi shippers actually turn up, half of them seem to demonize Namine, saying that she messed with Sora's memories and tried to steal him away from Kairi, which she actually did do... under the orders of her [[AbusiveParents evil, abusive guardians]], and once they were defeated, she set things right with Sora. The big kicker to all of this? Kairi and Namine [[spoiler: are the SAME BEING anyway!]] Honestly, thinking about it too long is enough to give one a brain tumor [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy ("I'm a tumor, I'm a tumor, I'm a tumor...")]] [[Film/KindergartenCop ("It's not a tumor!")]]
** Namine even gets hate from rabid Roxas/Xion shippers.
** Speaking of Xion, Nearly every Axel/Roxas shipper hated her before the game was even released, and at least 75% of them ''still'' hate her now for getting in the way of their pairing.
** The Sora/Riku shippers are just as bonkers where Xion is concerned. The moment screenshots appeared of Xion and Riku sharing the same breathing space, the shippers went nuts and started vilifying her for getting in the way of the ship. The best part? Xion [[spoiler: is Sora's opposite-sex clone.]]
** The Organization (or, the "ORGY-nization" if you see all the pairings) XIII are all either hated or loved for various reasons in terms of fandom, but Larxene is often depicted as more of an evil, violent and sadistic bitch than necessary or just forgotten altogether in order to advance any of the [[HoYay yaoi pairings]]. Note that the ''Chain of Memories'' half of the Organization hasn't even really canonically interacted with the ''Kingdom Hearts II'' half on screen. This only ''encourages'' it by leading to [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight shipping at near-random]] and therefore, bashing of [[ShipToShipCombat rival ships]]. When you have people loathing Zexion for getting in the way of Xigbar/Demyx, who doesn't even appear in the same game as either of them, you know something is seriously wrong...
** Lexeaus to any ship. Save for [[PairTheSpares pairing him up with Zexion]], [[LauncherOfAThousandShips which is unlikely]], he might as well not exist as far as shipping is concerned.
* An especially ironic example would be [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Princess Zelda]], who is frequently [[FanDumb bashed and vilified in]] {{Slash Fic}}s [[FanDumb wherein Link is paired up with]] [[{{Bifauxnen}} her male-looking]] [[YouFailLogicForever ninja alter ego]] (who is promptly [[CanonDefilement retconned to actually *be* male]]), Sheik.
** This tendency toward Zelda-bashing has continued with the release of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', where the Link/Midna shippers keep creating ways to reopen access to the Twilight Realm, chuck Zelda through it, and bring Midna back (particularly absurd since Midna and Zelda are very close by game's end and that outcome would ''not'' be disirable to Midna at all)--if not outright have the sovereign Princess of Hyrule be the first victim of the next conflict. And let's not talk about Ilia, who gets it ''much'' worse....
** Zelink shippers aren't so innocent either. There were some very vocal sections who didn't take kindly to Midna, feeling very threatened by the fact that Midna spends most of the game with Link and is possibly implied to have feelings for him. (Meanwhile Zelda is a prisoner for most of the game).
** While most Zelink and Midlink fans get along, there is that immature minority who would make you think otherwise.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', which arguably added multiple love interests, depending on who you ask. Saria, Malon, Zelda, and Ruto all suffer. The older Nabooru, who has the most overt interest in him but also the least dialogue, gets much less negative attention, mostly because fans interpret her as being just a flirt with no romantic interest. Princess Ruto, who finagled a ChildhoodMarriagePromise, is ''the'' most loathed girl by the shippers. The hatred of Ruto doesn't even make a whole lot of sense, considering that Link clearly isn't interested and the ending makes it impossible for them to be together even if he were.
** While she doesn't get NEARLY as much hate as Princess Ruto, apparently if you ship Link with Zelda or Saria you must bash Malon.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]'' had only three significant female characters: One was Princess Zelda, the next (Medli) showed obvious attraction to another boy, and the third was... Link's sister. (There's also this weird fairy queen with the crush on Link, but hardly anyone ever remembers her.) Also, making Tetra an actual girl, instead of a girl pretending to be a boy, was probably a wise choice as well... At least, there are little to no ''Wind Waker'' [[ShipToShipCombat Shipping Wars]] out there, but even without them, the number of fanfictions involving Link escaping Tetra's fan-overblown controlling bitch personality and heading off to be with Medli are astronomical. (They, however, almost never kill of Komali, who is hinted to be Medli's love interest. They rather pretend that he [[FanonDisContinuity never existed]].) Also, the only ones the Yaoi Fangirls pair Toon Link up with are... [[ScrewYourself pretty much all of the other Links]].
** Oddly, original FairyCompanion Navi is mostly left out of shipping wars despite WordOfGod stating that she was in love with Link and was jealous of Zelda (though she didn't ''hate'' her by any means), and even despite her [[TheScrappy scrappy status]]. Might have something to do with her being only three inches tall.
** With ''Skyward Sword'', you now have three pairings that involve having to get rid of Zelda. The romance sidequest Link can start with the Item Check Girl, Peatrice. The new companion, Fi, who canonically does became emotionally attached to Link and, of course, [[FoeYay Ghira]][[HoYay him]], whose lines in the game practically ooze with desire on what he [[SexIsViolence wants to do to Link]].
** And now we have ''Hyrule Warriors''. The game is not even out yet, but when a couple of things revealed, the claws came out already. With the news revealed Zelda and Midna are playable characters , naturally the Zelink and Midlink fans prepare their attack. Oh but not at each other, no. There is a new female villian on the block, [[VillianousCrush and she has a thing for Link]]. The [[VocalMinority immature sections]] of Midlink and Zelink shippers hate her already.
* [[EldritchAbomination Arakune]] from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''; it's not easy to find a [[RatedMForManly Bang Shishigami]] fan who doesn't want the critter dead for good. Bang's [[MisaimedFandom fandom]] logic for this is quite simple: the manliest man has to hook up with the woman he has his eyes set on, and it doesn't matter if she likes him or not at first; for them, Bang's passion '''will''' be corresponded no matter what. One can understand wanting Litchi to stop going through {{break the cutie}} deals for Arakune's sake, but these fans often act as if [[EntitledToHaveYou Bang had ownership and right to Litchi's whole persona]] because of his badassery, [[UnfortunateImplications which reflects a pretty... selfish and entitled view of romance as a whole.]] (And considering that Bang is a ChivalrousPervert, a [[GentleGiant rather decent guy]] and actually ''cares'' for Litchi's safety and well-being aside of liking her boobies, if he "knew" about such stuff, he would most likely be ''mortified''. See his reaction to [[ThinksLikeARomanceNovel Tsubaki]] trying to stage a ShotgunWedding in one of his joke endings!)
** And sometimes, it's even more, with these fans, they would shove away how Arakune used to be human and might deserve a second chance, to these fans, the fact that he's an amorphous blob that ate Kaka clans for his dietary means that he really should be killed ForGreatJustice for all, and that Litchi insists that he can be saved means that she's a fool, and is constantly being blamed for trying to dissuade her own grief like someone who was never a good person to begin with ([[spoiler:Joining NOL and aiding Relius in his would-be genocidal plan, despite unwilling, [[FanDumb will do such thing for this fandom]]]]), people would rather pity Bang for not getting the girl and would think that she no longer deserves Bang (so now she's pegged to 'die' because of refusing the ship! [[FlatWhat What]]). Never mind that [[HumansAreFlawed Bang himself also has a very flawed view on Litchi]], thinking of her like a perfect MarySue that can do no wrong, but apparently for these fans, Bang's manliness overrode all.
** And believe it or not, ''the reverse of this could hold true too''. Bang being some sort of BaseBreaker (either seen as an annoying IdiotHero or an EnsembleDarkHorse) means that some people would have him die so he'd stop pursuing Litchi already and leave her to her quest to save Arakune, because Bang could get annoying in some people's eyes. There's a reason why the Bang/Litchi pairing is [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff pretty much nonexistant in the Japanese fandom]], as they understood the values of tragic romance story, although they do not mind friendshipping between the two.
** Noel is quite hated, especially amongst [[HoYay Ragna/Jin]] shippers. There are also those who wishes Noel would fulfill her destiny of being killed to save the world, just so she doesn't get in the way of [[OfficialCouple Jin/Tsubaki]]. [[spoiler: Which is canonically Tsubaki's big problem, after Hazama [[MindRape takes a hold of her]].]] Of course, many of the rabid Jin x Tsubaki fans fail to realize that ''Noel herself'' is a ShipperOnDeck in favor of those two, that [[spoiler: she may or may not have stronger feelings for ''Ragna'' than Jin]], and took her job under Jin solely to aid her ailing family [[spoiler: courtesy of Hazama's machinations]]. If it weren't for that, she'd have held out for Tsubaki to have that role.
** Also, the anti Jin x Ragna shippers insist, and insist, [[RuleOfThree AND]] [[OverlyLongGag INSIST]] that ''any'' prospect FoeYay comes '''solely''' from [[spoiler: Yukianesa's MindControl]], and that the shippers are all a bunch of sickos. One can undestand [[NoYay being turned off]] by the ''[[BrotherSisterIncest BIG CATCH]]'' of the pairing, but sheeeeeesh.
* Amy Rose in ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' (and to a lesser extent, Sally Acorn in the [[ArchieComics Archie]] ''[[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Sonic]]'' comics) is forever reviled by Sonic/Shadow slash shippers, a prospect made easier due to her StalkerWithACrush status. The Sally and Amy fans also hate each other's characters, each blaming the other's chosen character for making the series JumpTheShark and {{Flanderization}} destroying theirs.
** Elise, Sonic's awkward love interest in ''Sonic '06''. She's widely hated by Sonamy fans. But then again, [[TheScrappy she's pretty much hated by everyone.]]
** Depending on what is supported, Shadow, Knuckles, and Rouge are subjected to this treatment, with Rouge being portrayed as an evil seductress trying to lure Knuckles and Shadow away from each other by the Shadow/Knuckles shippers, Shadow being portrayed as a gun-toting manic by the Knuckles/Rouge shippers, and Knuckles being portrayed as abusive and [[StalkerWithACrush obsessive]] by the Rouge/Shadow shippers. (And for the latter, this is if Knuckles isn't portrayed as wanting Rouge ''dead'' so that she won't be able to try to steal the Master Emerald anymore.)
** This is also the case with the Shadamy shippers, who usually portray Sonic as a {{Jerkass}} who doesn't want Amy until she's off with someone else.
** Many fanfics kill Sonic off in order to pair Amy up with... [[EvilKnockoff Metal Sonic]]. The real irony is that the first time Metal and Amy met, Metal kidnapped her.
** In the case of ''Anime/SonicX'', there is mutual hatred between fans of Cosmo/Tails and Cream/Tails. [[spoiler: Cosmo dies in the final episode anyways.]]
** Also in ''Sonic X'', Molly is bashed for trying to steal Shadow away from Maria. The ironic thing is that Maria is already dead by the time Molly is introduced.
** Within the Fleetway fandom there's a joke that Tekno and Amy are more then best friends. Cybernik is already TheScrappy due to his annoying behavior, but WordOfGod saying there's a romantic connection between Tekno and Cybernik just dug his grave even more.
** [[WordOfGod Word of Rafei]] is that the ''VideoGame/SonicBoom'' iteration of Amy is going to have her Sonic {{stalker|WithACrush}} tendencies strongly dialed down. Of course, this doesn't stop her from spending a stage with Sonic (and another with Tails), nor does it stop her from befriending [[WildChild Sticks]]. We could be dealing with a new cold war, folks.
* ''VideoGame/StarFox'', with its predominantly male cast, naturally gets this, especially in the form of [[MsFanservice Krystal]] the blue vixen, who is both Fox's [[SatelliteLoveInterest love interest]] and the BaseBreaker of the series as a whole. A portion of fans shunt her aside in favor of [[HoYay Fox/Falco]] and [[FoeYay Fox/Wolf]]; there's also [[FauxActionGirl Fara Phoenix]] from the 1993 Nintendo Power comics based off of the SNES game as a replacement, even though she and Fox have little chemistry between them. [[{{Irony}} More precisely: As much as Fox and Krystal do.]]
** On the flip side, just about no one will even ''dare'' ship [[LatinLover Panther]] with Krystal: lo and behold, rabid fans burst like crazy.
** Fara's and Krystal's fans are constantly at each others' throats.
** And even the HoYay shippers as mentioned can go crazy on one another, especially with [[AntiHero Wolf]], who is often a victim of ShipToShipCombat with [[AxCrazy Leon,]] or even ''James.''
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' has this for Colette, the female lead who interferes with alternate pairings (both het and yaoi) for the male lead. She's detested by much of the fandom, mostly for being a DistressedDamsel, a situation that is highly agitated by the fact that, statwise and storywise, she's actually an incredibly capable GlassCannon. And she's ''still'' a DistressedDamsel. This already bad situation is completely destroyed by the presence of Sheena, a female with obvious interest in the male lead who [[spoiler: has a tragic past, giving her aspects of TheWoobie, and whose CharacterDevelopment is much more interesting than Colette's]], and to top it off, is portrayed as a fully-capable ActionGirl. And this is despite the fact that, in real life, most people would probably love [[LoveFreak Colette]]. Including, in-universe, almost all of her romantic rivals.
** Zelos is loathed by some Lloyd/Sheena fans for his [[SlapSlapKiss canonical interest]] in Sheena, who take the worst of his HandsomeLech persona and turn him into a straight up JerkAss. While it ''is'' possible to both kill off Zelos ''and'' pair Lloyd up with Sheena in the game, you cannot do both at the same time, and if you ''do'' kill off Zelos, you've not only thrown off the canon altogether, but thoroughly [[OfficialCouple set Lloyd up with Colette]].
** At the shipwars' height, to people who shipped Kratos/Anna, Raine was a bitch and a slut stalking Kratos and trying to force him to forget the only true love he could ever have. To Kratos/Raine shippers, Anna was a blank NPC who Kratos didn't really love, but only felt sorry for. This was despite the fact that Kratos and Raine had fairly minimal subtext, that Kratos and Anna canonically had a child together, and that Anna has been dead for so long in the first game that she and Raine would never have needed to be in competition.
** Anna also gets the same treatment from some [[HoYay Kratos/Yuan]] fans, although they usually leave Raine out of it entirely. In this case, it also seems partly driven by HetIsEw.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'' also has this for Shirley, who, like Colette in ''Symphonia'', is the game's female lead. She interferes with alternate pairings for Senel (Senel/Chloe apparently being the [[FanPreferredCouple overwhelming favourite]]), especially since she and Senel apparently become "engaged" at the end of the Main Quest. But even so, it would seem that the vast majority of the ''Legendia'' fandom just generally [[TheScrappy wish Shirley to burn in the fiery depths of hell]] anyway.
** This is made slightly ridiculous by Senel being a ChasteHero, who shows no interest in anyone bar his dead ex-girlfriend Stella -- who's also Shirley's dead sister. Indeed, the two girls actually bond in one scene over the fact that he doesn't seem to have anything but friendship for either of them! (Despite Shirley being ''engaged'' to him, bizarrely enough.)
** Even more absurd is that both Senel/Shirley AND Senel/Chloe were already suffering by the point a love triangle emerged. Neither got together with him in the end, but their pining for him prior to that wore thin VERY fast. It makes one consider the possibility that perhaps any pairing with ChasteHero Senel isn't a good idea at all, and that perhaps Shirley and Chloe [[LesYay should just hook up with each other.]]
* For ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' fandom, we have Kyo's girlfriend, Yuki. Sweet, outspoken, straight-A student... and absolutely hated by Kyo/Iori slashers, Kyo/Shingo shippers, Kyo/Athena fans of the self-projecting kind, ''and'' authors who want their {{Author Avatar}}s to hump Kyo instead of this unfortunate NaiveEverygirl who gets caught in the crossfire between Kyo and the Orochi clan [[spoiler: who want to sacrifice her to bring Orochi back into this world, since she's the last descendant of the legendary Kushinada sacrificial maid.]]
** To a lesser extent, this is also true of Athena; where Kyo is concerned, some fics portray Athena as either a StalkerWithACrush or a [[AllTakeAndNoGive manipulator]] who selfishly toys with Kyo (and/or Kensou's) feelings [[ItsAllAboutMe for her own gratification]]. Also, others seem to think that Kensou is ''entitled'' to Athena's body and feelings for being her DoggedNiceGuy, and thus bash her and call her "slut" and "ungrateful" since [[JustFriends she doesn't like him in that way]] -- nevermind that both Athena ''and'' Kensou have other sides to their personalities.
** [McNinja Andy Bogard]], in both ''The King of Fighters'' and its sister series ''VideoGame/FatalFury''. Andy took quite a beating from rabid fanboys who preferred [[MsFanservice Mai]] with their {{Author Avatar}}s, other male characters (like Terry, Joe, [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Eiji Kisaragi]], Iori, or even someone from a completely different, unrelated series), and/or other female characters (from ''Fatal Fury'', ''The King of Fighters'', and otherwise).
** [[ActionGirl Blue Mary]], [[BoisterousBruiser Terry Bogard]]'s later love interest. Too many authors resent her for being an obstacle for their {{Author Avatar}}s. Though the fact that many of them have only seen [[TheAnimeoftheGame the anime adaptations]] thus barely know she exists (also not knowing that the anime is the only place Terry has [[CartwrightCurse a "dying girlfriend curse"]]) may be a factor there.
* In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', there isn't a lot of bashing, but the majority of what there is is thrown against Iris, for ''daring'' to be [[spoiler: the twin sister of the CuteAndPsycho Dahlia Hawthorne ''and'' Phoenix's ex-girlfriend who dated him to save him from her evil sister]]. To some extreme Phoenix/Edgeworth shippers, this means Iris is "an evil, hypocritical, stupid CanonSue whore who keeps Phoenix and Miles away from each other." To make things worse, the case that introduced Iris also gave fuel for both Phoenix/Maya and Phoenix/Edgeworth shippers, making her something of a ThirdOptionLoveInterest. Fortunately, the series never resolves potential romances between the main characters, which keeps bashing to a minimum.
** Leona Clyde from the Takarazuka musical gets a ''lot'' of hate for taking the place of several canon characters in Phoenix's life and being his love interest to boot. Of course, much of the shipper hate is mitigated by the wonderful HoYay number with Phoenix dancing with/being assaulted by Edgeworth's backup dancer clones.
** In-universe example: Pearl Fey. Having seen many members of her family (including her mother) deal with broken marriages due to the matriarchal nature of Kurain, she's desperate for her beloved cousin "Mystic Maya" to have a happy and secure marriage with Phoenix Wright. This leads to her flipping out and slapping Nick on occasion if he so much as stands next to other women (including Iris, Pearl's own sister), despite the pair's constant recital of SheIsNotMyGirlfriend.
* Omitsu is the favored punching bag for bitter shippers in the ''VideoGame/GanbareGoemon'' fandom, as she is the sole love interest of the main series - a matter exacerbated by her lack of screen time outside of [[DistressedDamsel kidnapping plots]], leading her to be denounced as a useless cuckoldress or simply ignored as a result. To rub more salt into the wound, Konami has been making Goemon and Omitsu's romance more overt in recent times, and even threw in a couple of moments to [[ShipSinking sink]] the more popular [=GoeYae=] couple. (The fans of the aforementioned couple have the manga and ''Bouken Jidai Katsugeki'' to go on, but they're AlternateContinuity, so they "don't count.")
* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' fans who prefer Otacon over Meryl can actually kill her off ''in game'' [[MultipleEndings if they so choose]]. No, it's not canon, but it's better than nothing. They appear to have noticed this and provided ample evidence for both [=Snake/EVA=] and Snake/Ocelot, letting you choose which one you like better.
** ''Guns of the Patriots'' sets up a romance between [[spoiler: Naomi and Otacon, over which Snake shows visible signs of annoyance. Later on in the story, she commits suicide by deactivating the nanomachines that are keeping her alive]]. Since [[spoiler: Naomi]] has a list of KickTheDog moments as long as one's arm, it's probably for the best that she ''did'' die. Heaven knows what her standing with the fandom would be if she [[spoiler: had survived to get in the way of Snake/Otacon.]]
** The horrible treatment Rosemary gets from people who ship Raiden with the other characters, especially from the slashers. While admittedly annoying in ''Sons of Liberty'' with plenty of [[{{Narm}} narmalicious quotes]], people really took AccentuateTheNegative to extremes with her character. The sheer amount of vitriol sent her way would almost make the non-''MGS'' fan think she was the true villain of the series and more depraved than [[DepravedBisexual Vamp]] and more monstrous than Volgin. She ''did'' become [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap more likeable for some]] when ''Guns of the Patriots'' rolled around, though.
** Johnny "Akiba" Sasaki has recently received this treatment as well. In ''Guns of the Patriots'', he gets to [[spoiler: marry Meryl; since then, some pretty rabid Snake/Meryl shippers have ''brutally'' bashed his brains out too. As if [[ButtMonkey he didn't have enough troubles already]]...]]
* Even the ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]'' fandom suffers from this. Mario himself has been bashed and demonized in fanfiction for the sake of pairing Peach with Bowser or Luigi, and tomboyish Princess Daisy is bashed by people who want to pair Luigi with Peach and [[YaoiFangirl those hung up on Luigi being gay]].
** In the anime film ''Super Mario Bros: The Great Plan to Rescue Princess Peach'', Prince Hal from the Flower Kingdom comes under fire from this due to him being Peach's fiance. In other words, messing up the [=MarioxPeach=] ending. Thankfully for them, Hal is a CanonForeigner who will never show up in the games.
* There are countless ''VideoGame/{{Soul|Series}}'' series fanfics where the non-playable character [[TheBlacksmith Rothion]] gets killed off so they can pair his wife [[ActionMom Sophitia]] off with someone else, usually [[TheAtoner Siegfried]] or [[{{Ninja}} Taki]]. In [[http://darth.wikia.com/wiki/Sophitia_Alexandra one case,]] she's been paired up with ''[[Franchise/StarWars Darth]] [[GuestFighter Vader]]''.
** The degree of negative treatment Rothion gets is just ridiculous. In one fiction, he was killed, sent to [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Hades]], locked up in a bone cage, [[FateWorseThanDeath tortured for eternity]], and given regular, vicious {{Hannibal Lecture}}s by the gods. Why? [[LogicBomb Because he helped the injured Sophitia when Taki brought her home,]] thus seducing her into marrying him and disrupting what was apparently THE GODS' OneTruePairing. Sophitia then admitted [[WhatTheHellHero she never truly loved him anyways]] and goes off to have a three-way with Taki and [[IncestIsRelative Cassandra]]. That isn't even the WORST of the fic...This encompasses ALL aspects of fic-hood, from Western written ones to Eastern Doujinshi. Why is this? Well, the answer's quite simple: Sophitia is widely considered one of the most attractive women in a series full of attractive women, and her husband's some guy you don't see much, and who, therefore, [[http://www.cracked.com/article_14990_what-monkeysphere.html according to the worst parts of human nature]], is less of a person. ShowDontTell may be in effect.
** [[AloofBigBrother Hwang]]/[[ActionGirl Mina]] and [[CanonForeigner Link]]/Talim shippers who bash the hell out of [[HotBlooded Hong Yungsung]], either, though part of that is in reaction to the [[TheScrappy character's many other faults]].
* Even ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork'' suffers from this. [[TheChick Mayl]], in particular, gets all the hatred of the yaoi fans (not to mention a humiliating FanNickname) for daring to stand in the way of Lan/Chaud... never mind that [[spoiler: Lan/Mayl is the OfficialCouple, as the sixth game shows in the ending]]. And the ever-shrinking Lan/Mayl fandom tends to demean Dex, who has a huge crush on the pink-haired girl... Then there's the feud between Chaud/Yai and Chaud/Anetta fans.
* ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce.'' Two het pairings (Geo/Sonia and Geo/Luna) are all but canon and the first game has some heavy HoYay between Geo and Pat. Throw in any other oddball pairings implied from the anime or whatever and you start to see the problem. It's mostly contained to the two big het pairings, though - G/S shippers say Luna's too much of a ClingyJealousGirl and G/L shippers say Sonia and Geo are LikeBrotherAndSister.
** The third game even seems to acknowledge the ShipToShipCombat by giving Geo (during [[BeachEpisode the trip to Alohaha]]) the chance to recover a valuable keepsake of one (and ''only'' one) of his three close friends: [[BettyAndVeronica Sonia, Luna]], or Bud. While all three options result in rather tender moments, picking one of the girls has the other fuming, whereas picking Bud has Zack remark (much to Sonia and Luna's mutual ire) that Geo was essentially picking the lesser of three evils.
* ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}}'' fandom falls into this habit as well, with both [[OfficialCouple Nowe/Manah]] and [[FanPreferredCouple Nowe/Eris]] fans blasting the third side of the LoveTriangle for getting in the way on their OTP. Usually, it is Manah who gets the brunt of the hatred (which probably has something to do with the fact that she was the BigBad in the first game), but there are quite a few Eris-haters out there, too.
* Pity Anomen Delryn of ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'', a noble would-be paladin who is deeply flawed with pride and, to a degree, selfishness, despite his essentially honorable and kind nature. He arguably caused the npc modding community, and tends to suffer badly at the hands of the fanfic community, usually in favor of [[TheWoobie Xan]], [[SmugSnake Edwin]], or [[SympatheticSue Kelsey]]. On the other side of the gender equation, the naive and idealistic Aerie tends to be revealed to be a ClingyJealousGirl, secretly evil, or worse.
** Aerie as a ClingyJealousGirl is pretty much canon. Secretly evil, not so much.
** Anomen's real problem is less DieForOurShip than "die for ''any ship at all''". He is the one and only romanceable NPC if you're playing a female PC in an unmodded game, and struck a lot of people as whiny, grating, stupid, or all three. The presence of otherworldly bishounen Haer'Daelis as a ''very'' visible intended LoveInterest (he tries to seduce away ''your'' love interest, if you're a male PC) cut late in development just adds insult to injury for those who disliked Anomen already. Long story short: RevengeFic poured in from a wide range of interests, and with a large modding community to support it, got more than a little out of hand...
* Lili from ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' is often portrayed as a full-blown RichBitch or AlphaBitch, in order to accomodate relationships with people ''she's not even closely related with'' (e.g: Steve and Christie). And here, she's just being a normal {{Ojou}} who happens to like fighting... However, the idea of Lili/Asuka seems to be almost universally unopposed, if only because [[FoeYay the]] [[LesYay hints]] are laid on so thick by canon (especially from Lili's side) it's rather hard to go against it.
** Xiaoyu, [[DoggedNiceGuy Dogged Nice Girl]] to Jin and one of his only friends from his otherwise pitiable life, hasn't been unfortunate enough to actually be killed off in fandom works, but she does tend to be {{derail|ingLoveInterests}}ed from "supportive, [[TheDitz ditzy]], {{genki|Girl}} gal pal of Jin who wants to save his soul from evil" to something worse to make way for [[FoeYay his rival Hwoarang]], [[KissingCousins his cousin Asuka]], his [[TheDragon Dragon]] Nina, or even [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight characters with no ties to Jin in-canon]] such as Julia. This is in spite of [[WordOfGod Harada]] stating that Jin is [[CelibateHero as celibate as they come]] since he has cursed blood and doesn't want ''anyone'' else (Xiao included) to suffer what he's had to live through.
* ''SpyroTheDragon''. Yes, even this fandom has some nasty eruptions:
** Probably the worst flak is given to Spyro/Cynder, although [[WordOfGod Sierra]] themselves pretty much showed that they were the one true pairing. Many claims hold Cynder as [[MarySue a cliched character with a generic dark past]], leading to ridiculous flame wars with fans and non-fans. For added insanity, keep in mind that Cynder ''doesn't even exist in the same continuity'' as pretty much ''all'' of other dragons/beings Spyro gets paired with by fans.
** Then there are those who will fight about Flame/Ember and Spyro/Ember. (Despite the fact that, at the end of the final game in the classic series, Ember hooks up with [[InterspeciesRomance an armadilo named Bandit.]] Who, oddly enough, ''doesn't'' follow victim to this trope... Provided people even remember he ''exists''.)
** The ones who prefer [[InterspeciesRomance Spyro/Elora]] or that Spyro not be paired with anyone, period.
* ''BreathOfFire II'' saw a rather one-sided attack on Nina by fans of the Ryu/Katt pairing. And, yes, in fanfiction, her personality generally takes one on the noggin.
** Although they're less guilty of it, fans of Ryu/Nina aren't completely innocent of this sort of thing, either, as they tend to completely {{Flanderiz|ation}}e Katt into a brainless, unrefined, and violent idiot. The game's BlindIdiotTranslation doesn't help much in either case, giving very little canon insight into their personalities to begin with.
* ''NeverwinterNights2'' makes this actually possible, since under certain circumstances, the main character may have to kill [[DesignatedLoveInterest Elanee]], [[FanPreferredCouple Neeshka]], or [[EnsembleDarkhorse Bishop]].
** It helps that the companions' personalities change depending on the player's choices, so a dead Neeshka is quite likely to have joined the enemy of her own volition, while a surviving Neeshka is a steadfast and loyal companion who can beat BloodMagic with the PowerOfFriendship. It's also worth noting that Neeshka and Bishop were originally ''supposed'' to be romanceable, but the subplots got DummiedOut. Naturally the modding community has seen fit to repair this.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fandom has a lot of choices to work with, what with the main characters being virtual [[LauncherOfAThousandShips launchers of a thousand ships]] and no OfficialCouple in sight, so there tends not to be much in the way of hard feelings towards the other non-shipped characters... except [[{{Tsundere}} Alice]]. The [[CuteWitch Marisa]]/Alice ship being one of the [[FanPreferredCouple most popular]], some [[{{Miko}} Reimu]]/Marisa shippers have the tendency to portray Alice in the most negative light possible to drive Marisa away from her. For example, the "Touhou Seasons" quartet of {{doujinshi}} has Reimu and Alice both fawning over Marisa; while Reimu can be a little annoying, Alice is portrayed as barely being tolerated, with massive and bothersome {{nosebleed}}ing whenever she interacts in the slightest with Marisa.[[note]]If there's any doubt that the circle is Reimu/Marisa, compare their doujins "Touhou Kotatsu Gakari" and "Touhou [=AliMari=] Medical": "Kotatsu" has no Alice, and Reimu and Marisa being gently romantic; whereas "Medical" centers around Marisa trying to stop Alice's nosebleeds (because, again, it's annoying) and then fending her off when it goes wrong, with Reimu only showing up at the end to misunderstand the situation. The artist claims to like both pairings, but [[CopycatZero this troper]] doesn't buy it.[[/note]] Another doujin has, as its entire plot, Alice soiling and then embarrassing herself in front of Reimu and Marisa. And then there's the AlternateCharacterInterpretation of Alice as a creepy {{yandere}} doll {{otaku}}...
** It doesn't help that the series is pretty much devoid of men, which allows the yuri fanboys and fangirls to go '''wild'''.
* In the ''TokimekiMemorial'' Japanese fandom, there was back in the time of the Classic Kirameki Saga's boom in 1996 quite a backlash concerning [[BromanticFoil Yoshio Saotome]]'s pairing in the wake of the ''Motto! Tokimeki Memorial'' Radio Drama series, which is one of the pillars of the Classic Kirameki Saga's mythos: near the end of this Radio Drama series, a whole chapter (Chapter 9) was dedicated on how Yoshio and [[spoiler: [[{{Meganekko}} Mio]] [[IllGirl Kisaragi]]]] hook up. Since in the original game, aside from his best friend of a main protagonist [[CanonName Naoto]], and his little sister [[{{Kawaiiko}} Yumi]], the person Yoshio had the most interaction with was his friend [[spoiler: since Junior High [[GenkiGirl Yuko Asahina]]]], a good number of people took that pairing as granted ([[spoiler: despite the fact Yuko considers Yoshio as a ''kusare-sen'' friend, aka a person she doesn't really want to have as a friend but is inevitably a friend anyways]]) and were ''not amused'' at this shipping course change. The whole thing, of course, evolved as well into ShipToShipCombat with those who liked the new course. The mess has fortunately died down nowadays.
* ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheTwoThrones'' actually provides a ''canon'' example of this when [[spoiler: Kaileena is killed by the Vizier and becomes the Sands of Time, and isn't revived until the end (whereupon she declares that she will be leaving the planet so that no one can abuse her power again). This opens up the way for the Prince to court Farah again without having to worry about competition. Of course, since most fans liked Farah better, this was actually very well received.]]
* Not even ''MortalKombat'' is free of this. ActionGirl Sareena gets ShipTease with Sub-Zero and Noob Saibot... guess what happens to her.
** Wait, there's incestuous necrophiliac ''MK'' fanfic out there? Did ''not'' need to know that.
** No, it's usually not with Noob, [[{{Squick}} thank]] [[BrainBleach God]]. Sub-Zero usually tends to be paired with [[FoeYay Scorpion]], [[LadyOfWar Kitana]], and [[DarkActionGirl Mileena]]. And of course, a het ship involving the MrFanservice EnsembleDarkHorse tends to come under ''[[HetIsEw heavy]]'' fire from {{yaoi fangirl}}s.
* Most [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice Mao/Almaz]] shippers tend to use the Almaz ending for fanfictions, because Almaz's love interest, Sapphire, ends up [[spoiler: ''wanting to kill him'', thinking he is going to kidnap her if she doesn't stike back]], automatically getting her out of the way, and making her a pretty nice target. Nevermind that [[spoiler: ''Mao also wants to kill him for his title'']] in this ending.
** Vocal [[VideoGame/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten Valvatorez/Fenrich]] shippers aren't exactly thrilled with Artina since she possesses some CommonMarySueTraits and, initially at least, a rather sharp tongue. On the flip side, some of the people who ship Val/Artina are not exactly fond of Fenrich's JerkSue traits.
** Then there's the, thankfully very small, minority of Val/Fuka shippers who hate both of the other ships. This is in spite of the fact that FUKA ships both of them herself and even chooses to ''[[ShipSinking sink her own ship]]'' in her epilogue because she doesn't want to get in the way of Artina and Fenrich!
* Flora gets treated this way by some members of the ''ProfessorLayton'' fandom, because she's seen as an obstacle to hooking up Layton with his apprentice Luke. This is a particularly ''odd'' example, because 1) Layton's only known canonical romance was with a woman, 2) Flora is Layton's adopted daughter (though there are Layton/Flora shippers too), and 3) Luke is ''[[{{Shotacon}} thirteen]]'' to Layton's [[{{Squick}} 37]].
* ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory'' gets a lot of this between Claude, Rena and Dias; Rena/Dias shippers tend to turn Claude from a good-hearted but very lost teenager into a [[JerkAss weak, whiny jerk]] whose only purpose is to drive Rena into the arms of Dias, who is suddenly smooth, tender and [[ThePornomancer incredibly good in bed.]] In canon, Dias is [[IneffectualLoner very aloof]] and awkward with emotions, and he and Rena spend most of the game thinking of each other as surrogate big brother/little sister despite not being related. But most of the shippers never acknowledge that and go straight for the romance.
** The fan attitude towards Claude isn't helped by the fact that Dias only joins the party if you play as Rena, and the impression when playing as Claude is that Dias doesn't join due to Claude being a jerkass to him.
** Or else they make Rena into the whiny [[StalkerWithACrush jealous borderline-stalker,]] so that [[HoYay Claude can run off with Dias...]] or Ashton, in some cases, which usually involves bashing Precis the same way.
** The worst part of the ship wars in this fandom? [[MultipleEndings You can choose who ends up with who in this game!]] There is absolutely no reason for anyone to die for anyone's ship! Just pair them with someone else in the party, or have them end up alone if you prefer, and it's just as canon as everyone else's ship!
* While not ''as'' vicious as other fandoms, ''GuiltyGear'' has its share of charabashing based on pairings, and ''specially'' after some rounds of ShipSinking. The main victim is [[ChefOfIron Kuradoberi Jam]] (perceived as a shrill bitch who wants to keep Sol and Ky away due to her flirting with Ky in canon). Moreover, a scene in AC+ where she tried to ''poison'' Ky become another reason to increase the hate.
** (Curiously, Dizzy gets much ''less'' hate than expected after, you know, [[spoiler: becoming the Maiden of the Grove, ''marrying'' Ky and being the mother of his child, Sin.]])
** On the other hand, a small number of [[BrokenBase TestamentxDizzy fans are sour]] with [[TheCharmer Ky Kiske.]] They think that Ky stole Dizzy, the only person left in Testament's world.
* Particularly convenient in {{Persona 3}} [[UpdatedRerelease Portable]], where fans who dislike [[FanPreferredCouple FeMCxShinjiro]] insist that [[spoiler: his death is the canon path.]] And they'd be right, considering that [[spoiler: even if she saves him from the gunshot the supressants would still kill him eventually]]
** Aside of this, the fact that the [=FeMC=] can be paired with [[spoiler: the [[{{Shotacon}} 10-year-old]] Ken Amada]] is rather... polemic on its own.
* Feron of ''Franchise/MassEffect'' fame is slowly becoming a target amongst the hardcore fans of Any!Shepard/Liara (particularly Female Shepard), especially after WordOfGod suggested that Liara ''may'' have had feelings for the drell during the prequel comic tie-in to ''Mass Effect 2'' (regardless of her relationship status with Shepard). Because it's totally [[SarcasmMode healthy to not move on even a little after your S/O supposedly died right before your eyes]], right? It ''is'' worth noting that Liara never acts upon those supposed feelings: if you continue the romance, Liara says she only saw Feron as a good, platonic friend and nothing more. It doesn't stop the more hardcore fans from invoking this trope on him.
** If asked about how she feels in Lair of the Shadow Broker, Liara says that Feron is too emotionally damaged after his torture for a relationship, and if Shepard romanced her, she will say she pointed out that she was "taken". Interestingly enough, it is possible to indirectly kill him by not completing Lair of the Shadow Broker.
** Despite there being no overt references or hints of romance between Kal'Reegar and Tali ([[ShippingGoggles not that it's ever stopped anyone]]) in game, Kal'Reegar fares no better with the hardcore Tali/Male Shepard fans. While [[spoiler: he can die in-game, most just kill him off on Haestrom anyways]], this doesn't mean this trope plus RonTheDeathEater doesn't seep in from time to time too. The hate has gone down somewhat, seeing as how [[spoiler:the poor guy gets [[DroppedABridgeOnHim killed off-screen]] if he ''did'' survive the second game]]. Somewhat.
** Some people don't like that [[spoiler: Tali and Garrus]] can hook up, this is completely ignoring that [[spoiler: it only happens if neither party is romanced or dead]]. Then again, this is the reason why [[spoiler:you cannot start a romantic relationship with either in 3]]. It's worth noting that virtually no one who hates this pairing bashes [[spoiler: Garrus]] over this, even Male!Shepard fans (the ostensible "competition"). [[spoiler: Tali]] seems to fare much worse among Female!Shepard fans who hate the pairing.
** Can also be invoked in the first game; Want to romance Ashley as Male!Shep, or Kaidan as Fem!Shep? [[spoiler: Well, then the SadisticChoice on Virmire just got significantly easier... but don't tell the [[KilledOffForReal one you're not dating]].]]
** Then there's Kaidan who gets blasted by the more rabid Fem!Shep/Garrus (or Shakarian) shippers for either being an abusive asshole who emotionally manipulates Shepard into staying with him and very viciously blasts Garrus for siding with Cereberus alongside Shepard or the complete reverse, being generally just a bland and boring guy. Some shippers have even gone so far as to write fanfiction wherein the entire Normandy crew emotionally or physically abuse Kaidan simply for being there and daring to show interest in Fem!Shep.
** Liara is hit with this from people who ship Shepard with pretty much anyone else, largely due to perceived creator favoritism, treating her as a StalkerWithACrush and a {{Yandere}}. It didn't help that Liara, among other things, pulls Shepard's armor from his body and enshrines it in her apartment. Liara faces particular ire from fans of Kaidan or Ashley who blame Liara for all of their distrust of Shepard. While that was a [[PoorCommunicationKills severe communications failure]] on Liara's part, some have interpreted it as Liara deliberately keeping them in the dark so that she could have Shepard all to herself. The fact that Liara canonically kept quiet about Tali's feelings for Shepard to improve her own chances with him isn't exactly a point in her favor.
* Before the [[spoiler: Garrus/Tali]] pairing in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', a significant number of Fenris fangirls similarly lost their minds over [[PairTheSpares Fenris and Isabela hooking up]] in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', despite the fact that, similar to the Mass Effect example, it only happens if neither party is romanced by the player. Isabela is frequently trashed as being slutty and amoral (being canonically promiscuous doesn't help) and not good enough for Fenris. Some go as far as to take the option to give her up to the qunari at the end of Act 2. As an interesting contrast, fans that don't bash the pairing have a tendency to TakeAThirdOption and ship Hawke/Fenris/Isabela instead.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Aveyond}}'', the Dameon hate is extremely strong due to fans preferring [[FanPreferredCouple Rhen/Lars]] to [[OfficialCouple Rhen/Dameon]].
* The ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' fandom is completely dedicated to shipping; the games are more-or-less DatingSim's with farm elements to most fans. Of course there's going to be shipping wars, usually related to TheRival of certain characters. IE; in ''More Friends of Mineral Town'' related fanfics related to Claire/Kai, Popuri's already flanderized in [[VideoGame/HarvestMoon64 canon]] personality gets flanderized into having no redeeming factors and just being a ClingyJealousGirl to Kai.
** Sabrina seems to get the worst of this from her massive Hatedom, especially when it comes to the Vaughn/Chelsea pairing.
** In Tree of Tranquility/Animal Parade, the three most popular guys to marry are [[{{Tsundere}} Gill]], [[DeadpanSnarker Chase]] and [[TheFool Luke]] (and the fourth would be Wizard but he has no love rival). Their love interests [[TokenMiniMoe Luna]], [[BigEater Maya]] and [[AttentionWhore Selena]] ARE NOT liked at all. Special mention to Luna and Selena though as in Animal Parade, if you tell them you like Gill or Luke, their worse personalty comes out and to be fair, Luna and Gill ''aren't really a good match''...and neither is [[FourthDateMarriage Luke and Selena.]] At worse, Luna is seen as a stupid brat that doesn't understand Gill's feelings at all even during their rival scenes and Selena is seen as a whore who basically seduced Luke in the first place. Maya gets the least amount of flak out of the three but she's bashed for getting a hot guy like Chase.
** And in ''A Wonderful Life'', hardly anyone likes Muffy. Fanfics that pair up [[PlayerCharacter Jack]] with one of the other bachelorettes (usually Celia) often derail [[LookingForLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces Muffy]] into being a slut. And then you have people who dismiss Celia as being [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses "a boring housewife."]]
** Another example in the ''Wonderful Life'' fandom is Marlin. In canon, he has a tendency of being a little overprotective of the people he cares about. However, in just about every Jack/Celia fic, Marlin's protectiveness gets Flanderized to StalkerWithACrush levels.
* In VideoGame/TeamFortress2, the Medic's wife gets this from slash ficcers, despite the fact ''she's only mentioned in one line'' (where an enemy Demoman claims [[IBangedYourMom he is sleeping with her]]).
* Shizune Hakamichi from the VisualNovel ''KatawaShoujo'' seems to have suffered the misfourtune of being pratically set up of this. First, her route is very much an aquired taste, relying more on intellectual nuance, {{Foreshadowing}} and subtext than the "[[{{catharsis}} feels]]" that are common in other routes. Meaning that [[RewatchBonus you need to play it a few times in order to truly get it]]. (The fact that it is the most linear route, [[spoiler: with only one choice]], as well as a SliceOfLife narrative structure that not everyone appreciates, doesn't help matters.) Second, she is a SpiritedCompetitor to a degree that [[BaseBreaker one either finds charming and endearing or obnoxious and annoying]]; she can also can be rather blunt (justified in part because she is deaf-mute). Thirdly she is TheRival to Lilly who is by far one of the most adored characters in the game and whose route is seen as much smoother and sweeter [[spoiler: except for the end, but that one also ends up well]]. Lastly, her best friend Misha is an EnsembleDarkHorse who doesn't have a route of her own [[spoiler: and is, in fact, in unrequited love with Shizune herself - which is what triggers THE single choice in the Shizune route]]. [[HateDumb You'd think people would not be able to pour so much hate at an eighteen year old deaf girl.]]
** Interestingly enough, in Lilly's route, Shizune [[spoiler:reconciles with Lilly, and initiates the process]]. And instead of competing with the other girls over Hisao, Shizune, along with Misha, is a ShipperOnDeck.
** Lilly herself gets some of this trope from fans of the other route, who resent her for being the most popular girl. She is also sometimes accused of being a MarySue, [[spoiler:although this, like other tropes, is [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]], when Hisao finds himself relying on her too much, doesn't challenge her decision to go to Scotland until almost literally the last second, and realizes that she has flaws of her own, such as hiding her emotions]].
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' has had a very strong shipping base since the first game, but it was the third game when people really got violent about it. When it was made cannon that Isaac and Jenna got married, and were the main protagonists parents, the hate fics began to flow like water. Many fans had been a fan of shipping Isaac and Mia, as well as Garet and Jenna. The takes of these fics have been from Isaac being detached and a jerk, Jenna cheating on him with someone else (freeing him up) or simply stating that one half of the couple is dead already.
** The second game caused an odd inversion of this. [[HeroicMime Felix]] is often paired, not with the [[DeadpanSnarker girl he jumped off of a tower for]], but the [[WellIntentionedExtremist antagonist]] that he actually killed in the late game. Sheba doesn't tend to get killed off, just paired with [[BrattyHalfPint Ivan]], but the reasons for reviving Karst jump around.
* Franchise/ResidentEvil has multiple examples:
** Ada Wong often gets this treatment from more militant "Cleon" fans. This is in stark contrast to how the Raymond Vester is treated. To wit, they both save people who showed them kindness, both [[spoiler: steal viruses and sell them off in some extremely morally questionable dealings]], and possibly [[spoiler: work for the same organization]]. This may be due to how Ada has a kiss with Leon in 2 and their interactions throughout 4, which could then interfere with Claire/Leon as a pairing, whereas the one Raymond is shipped with on a regular basis is Parker, who himself isn't paired off with other characters in the game by the fans.
*** Then again, it doesn't exactly help the fact that in Leon's second scenario in ''2'', his romance with Ada is shoehorned in with no warning.
** Steve Burnside is often vilified and treated as a rapist or wife-beater so Leon can rescue Claire from the relationship.
** But the inverse happens with Cleve fans in fanfiction, where Leon ends up a rapist or wife-beater, so Steve can rescue Claire.
** Jessica Sherawat is hated for many reasons, one of which being how she flirts with Chris so much. Some of the more rabid Valenfield (Chris/Jill) fans hate her for that reason alone. Because, clearly, [[spoiler: being a traitor, trying to kill a guy twice, hitting another guy who got in the way and leaving him to die, destroying major pieces of evidence, etc.]] is somehow forgivable if the character doesn't in the way of your ship.
** Curiously, Parker gets harsh treatment from Valenfield shippers as well. This requires ignoring some HoYay some fans see he has with Raymond and how Parker [[ShipperOnDeck implies that Chris and Jill are together and tries to get Jessica to stop bothering Chris]].
* In ''VideoGame/ShiningForce 2'' Princess Elis gets bashed a lot for taking Bowie (the main character) away from the healer Sarah who spends the whole game crushing on him. Bowie chooses Elis at the end of the game despite her having about two minutes of screentime, if that. [[FanPreferredCouple There's a large consensus on the hatred of Elis, however.]]
* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': Rabid [[TheFightingNarcissist Gilgamesh]]/[[LadyOfWar Saber]] shippers bash the crap out of [[{{Determinator}} Shirou]] for his supposed "sexism" in initially not wanting Saber to fight, never mind the fact that it's made blindingly clear that Shirou doesn't want Saber fighting due to [[ChronicHeroSyndrome his hero complex]] and because he doesn't want to see the girl he loves hurt or killed. [[SarcasmMode Apparently, a socially awkward, impulsive teenager with a tendency of putting his foot in his mouth is much more horrible than a guy trying to kill a girl, trying to force her to marry him, and all but saying he wants to rape her.]]
** Rin gets plenty of hatred from Shirou/Sakura shippers for "stealing" Shirou from Sakura in Unlimited Blade Works. Saber also gets some bashing, mostly because she's the most popular heroine and Shirou and Saber are [[FlipFlopOfGod more or less]] considered the OfficialCouple by Type-Moon, but not nearly as much as Rin.
** And let's not forget the ''massive'' hate that Sakura tends to get from both Rin/Shirou and Saber/Shirou fans, who tend to see her as a prospect SympatheticSue as well as [[WhatmeasureIsANonBadass "girly and thus weak"]].
