WesternAnimation has a surprising amount of {{Shipping}}, both in {{canon}} and out of it. So the DieForOurShip mentality can pop up here, too...

''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' and SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' [[DieForOurShip/AvatarTheLastAirbender have their own shared page.]]

[[folder: Die for our Het Ship]]
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'':
** Lizzie Devine, Numbuh One's girlfriend is often bashed. Numbuh Two is also often bashed for getting in the way of 1/5 even though he's not even ''in'' a relationship with Numbuh Five. (The latter case ''is'' no longer as common as it used to be.)
** It is hinted in The GrandFinale that [[spoiler:Numbuh Two may have married Numbuh Five when they grew up (despite his canon crush on 5's sister Cree).]] So, Two ''is'' as valid a target as anyone... Also, in the series, [[spoiler:Lizzie breaks up with Nigel willingly.]]
** Also, the [[RuleThirtyFour 3/4]] shippers (the name is often used intentionally) are constantly at war with the 13 and 45 shippers.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'':
** Terra was absolutely ''loathed'' by Beast Boy/Raven shippers after she appeared in season two. After her [[TheMole revelation as Slade's apprentice]], the hate magnified even more; many fics were written featuring Terra as a maniacal sociopath... which, ironically, fits the '''original''' [[Comicbook/TeenTitans comic version]] of her. The show's version is quite [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds different.]]
** Starfire, as part of the OfficialCouple, tends to get a LOT of hatred from Robin/Raven fans.
** Robin and Beast Boy occasionally get hatred from Beast Boy/Raven shippers and Robin/Raven shippers respectively. Robin will also sometimes get this from Raven/Starfire shippers.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'':
** Some fans are still upset that Daria got over her crush on the cool slacker Trent and ended up with the charming preppie Tom, even though Tom is ''[[DeadpanSnarker exactly]]'' like [[SnarkKnight Daria]], only male and well-adjusted and it's also made clear in the series that she would have been ''really'' unhappy with Trent. Perhaps some of this antipathy stems from the fact that, initially, it seemed like Daria "stole" Tom from Jane; in canon, the characters all eventually got past it and agreed it was unintentional and probably inevitable. The weird part is that Tom and Daria broke up at the end of the series anyway, so they're free to ship her with anyone else... and yet they still try to kill him.
** There's also a group of fans that believe Daria ''must'' remain single for eternity in order to [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses maintain her status as a strong female character]]. Therefore, any scene that depicted Daria being attracted to men, displaying a wish of having a fulfilling heterosexual relationship, or actually dating, is bashed for trying to "ruin" Daria's independence.
** Trent's on-and-off girlfriend Monique is also portrayed as an evil bitch in several Daria/Trent fics, despite her canon self being sweet and friendly.
** It should be noted that after a decade, however, the whole ShipToShipCombat in the fandom has died down a lot; the old fans have gotten over it and many of the newer ones went into the series knowing what was going to happen. These days, Tom-bashing is more a tongue-in-cheek joke than anything, and Daria/Trent, while still popular, is often seen as kind of cliché.
* In a rare pro-fem example, Sprx from ''WesternAnimation/SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperForceGo!'' has been through this. Though often it's just RonTheDeathEater here.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'':
** Josh Mankey was often vilified for standing in the way of Kim/Ron before Kim stated that they had drifted apart in the third season. He was usually depicted as womanizing, manipulative, or abusive. This, even though he was shown as caring and understanding the few times he dated Kim. Although, since he was simply a [[CharactersasDevice character as a plot device]] he was very poorly defined and thus open to wide interpretation with what little was shown of him in the show.
** Kim suffers from this in [[PortmanteauCoupleName Rongo]] stories that pair him with Shego. Often, Kim is transformed into a demanding, jealous bitch who treats Ron like dirt. One wallbanging fic had her [[EmoTeen slash her wrists]] after the pair were married.
** Ron is sometimes portrayed as a completely incompetent, useless tag-along who doesn't have any redeeming qualities -- that is, someone who doesn't "deserve" Kim. The more extreme shippers portray his friendship with Kim as little more than "generosity" (that is, pity) on Kim's part. He usually isn't killed by such writers, but he usually has his role reduced to little more than an annoying [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] everyone else puts up with. There's also the "Ron was just a rebound" plot device, which can go two ways. On one hand, it can be used against Ron so Kim can dump him for someone else the shipper prefers her with. On the other, it could be used to make Kim look like a bitch so Ron can run into the arms of another ([[{{Irony}} who presumably ISN'T a rebound]]) for comfort. To the point that one infamous fanfic had that "another" be ''Kim's own mother.''
** Then there's Yori, Ron's {{Ninja}} friend who was clearly in love with him. Despite Kim's jealousness fans see her as no threat to their relationship, as Yori is perfectly fine with Kim and Ron as a couple.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'':
** Samantha "Sam" Manson (the one Danny ended up with) as this early in the fandom; she was hated, despised, and bashed in fanfiction written by Danny fangirls who paired Danny with the writer's OriginalCharacter. To this day, the worst of those stories are still archived in Quizilla. However, the hate for Sam toned down when [[WellIntentionedExtremist Valerie]] [[FallenPrincess Gray]] went through, not only CharacterDevelopment, but also a GondorCallsForAid episode in which she and Danny become friends, and eventually ended up in a DatingCatwoman situation. Since then, Valerie has been despised by a large part of the fandom (even though they broke up because [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies Valerie didn't want to put Danny in danger]]), since the two still maintained romantic feelings for each other. Although by the end of the series [[spoiler: it's hinted prior to his LastMinuteHookup with Sam that Danny got over Valerie,]] the hate is still going strong. It's not surprising to find a fanfic in which Sam is depressed over Danny and Valerie's relationship, and it turns out that Danny is only dating Valerie because he thinks Sam will never love him and never loved Valerie in the first place.
** Danny/Valerie shippers frequently claim Sam is some kind of manipulative shrew who thinks of Danny as a tool for her own agendas. It got even worse after [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend the finale.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'':
** Timmy/Trixie shippers end up bashing Tootie, and Timmy/Tootie shippers bash Trixie. It is mostly Trixie and Tootie fans who do the bashing... In one fanfic, known as "Trixie's True Self 2", Tootie even went to the evil side -- something she would never do on the show -- after Timmy started dating a new tomboy-fied Trixie. It is even said to happen [[ArmedWithCanon with the writers]].
** Missy (Timmy's new love interest in Season 9) has already gotten this. The fact that neither Tootie or Trixie have appeared in this season doesn't help.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'':
** The [[FanPreferredCouple Terry/Maxine and Terry/Melanie]] fans ''really'' hated Terry's canon girlfriend, Dana. Some even think that she's less sympathetic than the StalkerWithACrush who tried to kill her and/or that she deserved to die, just because she got fed up with being constantly StoodUp.
** Not helped when season 3 extra materials turned up a legit script of Terry/Max, that was not just given a simple rejection but given an automatic no by Timm (who had intended the episode to be Terry/Dana before Burnett rewrote it).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'':
** Fans have never entirely forgiven [[ActionGirl Angela]] for picking [[BigGuy Broadway]] over [[EnsembleDarkhorse Brooklyn]]. Some of them (the ones that don't kill him off) even derail Broadway from a GentleGiant into a wife-beater in their fics so that Angela can go running into the arms of Brooklyn.
** There's an in-show example too, as Demona ships herself with Goliath even in the 1990s. Thus, she particularly hates Elisa more than she hates the rest of humanity.
* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'':
** The hate against the {{Tsundere}} Jean Grey was a given because her "love rival" for Scott's affection was the very popular and {{wangst}}y {{Goth}} Rogue. Amazingly, Gambit is never usually bashed, and his fans don't tend to bash Scott either, both proffering to pretend the other doesn't exist. Lance, ''aka'' Avalanche, who thanks to CharacterizationMarchesOn became a TroubledButCute JerkWithAHeartOfGold with [[EvenEvilHasStandards strong lines he will not cross, and effectively the most moral of the Brotherhood, and even helped save the entire city of Bayville]] is usually bashed by the more rabid fans of [[PlatonicLifePartners Kitty and Kurt]]. If he is lucky, he will get paired off with Tabitha, Wanda, Pietro, or a new character. But sometimes he is made a rapist and girlfriend beater in their fanwork to favor Kurt. Kurt's girlfriend [[FanOfUnderdog Amanda Sefton]] can also be portrayed as an AlphaBitch who is mean to Kitty and treats Kurt like garbage.
** Some Lance/Kitty fans are getting just as rabid as Kurtty fans. Yeah, overall they're not as bad, but some are ''really'' [[HeWhoFightsMonsters getting vicious towards Kurtty fans, and even Kurt in general.]] Usually they tend to just stick him with Amanda or even Wanda, but now, well, he's just as likely to get bashed. Although some do it to defend Lancitty from attack, some do take it too far, and accuse anyone who doesn't ship Lancitty, no matter the reason, of just being narrow-minded Kurtty fans. All this fighting over little [[LauncherOfAThousandShips Kitty]]! Someone needs to drop her and write the much hotter Lance/Kurt.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'':
** As for Ben, Kai is often portrayed in fanfiction as a snobby RichBitch-esque character.
** Kevin/Gwen fans now perceive Charmcaster as getting in the way of their ship due to her seducing Kevin in her Alien Force debut episode. Michael Morningstar/Darkstar gets a similar reaction due to his constant flirtations toward "lovely Gwen". Sometimes there is no DieForOurShip, though, and Charmcaster and Darkstar wind up [[PairTheSpares paired with each other instead.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'':
** When Liz Allen came onto the scene, many viewers hated her for getting in the way of Peter/Gwen... but then this trope ended up becoming ''subverted'' when these viewers' hatred gave way to pity as it became clear that Peter loved Gwen and Liz was just a HopelessSuitor. It helped that her inevitable breakup with Peter was a TearJerker.
** A reversed situation happened with Harry/Gwen. When Gwen starts dating Harry, it's clear that she's doing so just because she feels sorry for [[TheWoobie him.]] Shippers agreed with her decision [[BreakTheCutie (Harry went through some Grade-A Shit last season)]] and they waited patiently for them to break-up so we could get to the Peter/Gwen. Just when the build-up to the fabled ship arrived, Harry found out Gwen's true feelings and became jealous. Then another woobie moment happens, and Harry decides to KickTheDog by manipulating Gwen into staying with him to "ease the pain," though it's evident he's just jealous of Peter. Shippers promptly went to war.
** And then there's the small contingent of Mary Jane/Peter shippers who want Gwen to die for the ship because, well, in the comics, she does. They're mostly pretty quiet, though.
*** In conclusion: ''Spectacular Spider-Man'' shippers are some of the sanest out there. And therefore the most horrifying. *shudder*
* A great number of fans of the movie ''WesternAnimation/{{Felidae}}'' are huge fans of the Francis/Felicity pairing even though [[spoiler:Felicity is [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath brutally decapitated]] only minutes after she's introduced in the film]] and [[spoiler:the cat Francis had sex with in the film is the one who becomes his mate.]] It probably has something to do with the fact that Felicity is set up as a sweet naive IllGirl [[spoiler:shortly before she dies]]. By contrast, [[spoiler:Nhozemptekh]] - exotically pretty as she may be - is unfortunately given little character development beyond being a NubileSavage in kitty form.
* Many shippers of the Jake/Rose relationship in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'' became irate when Jake flirted with a certain pink-hat wearing girl because she was a girl who Jake was attracted to and [[OneTruePairing who was not Rose]]. She was even speculated to be the "Siren" of a later episode and working for the [[BigBad Dark Dragon]]. As the show played out, however, the girl proved to be nothing more than an extra with a few lines.
* Phoebus, from the Disney version of ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame,'' gets this a lot from people who prefer Esmeralda to be with either [[TheGrotesque Quasimodo]] or [[LoveMakesYouEvil Frollo]]. Instead of being the wry, sensible man he is, Phoebus is portrayed as an abusive {{Jerkass}} (completely accurate in the novel, where Phoebus is the only main character without a single redeeming quality, but not in the {{Disney}} film). Quasi/Esme shippers especially seem to think that having Esme end up with Phoebus is [[BrokenAesop a betrayal]] of the film's "Looks don't matter" message.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'':
** Suzy Johnson is an odd example of this because she is Jeremy's little sister. However, she's violently opposed to him dating Candace and tortures her at every opportunity, making her highly unpopular with C/J shippers.
** Johnny occasionally got this from some [[PrecociousCrush Ferb/Vanessa]] shippers, though it largely subsided when it seemed he would just be a [[GirlOfTheWeek Boy of the Week]]. More than a season later he's back as Vanessa's [[OfficialCouple official boyfriend]] ([[HookedUpAfterwards in series]] of the Latin American version at least), and it's started up again.
*** In "Minor Monogram", they break up because Johnny is more interested in a video game than her.
*** ...and then she hooked up with Monty Monogram. Here we go again...
** Vanessa isn't too liked by a small number of [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight Ferb/Gretchen]] shippers, or just people who find the idea of her and Ferb together---which seems sort of unnecessary, since she doesn't even ''know'' [[PrecociousCrush Ferb likes her]] anyway.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'':
** When [[PerkyGoth Gwen]] and Trent were an official couple, shippers who wanted to see [[DoggedNiceGuy Cody]] get the girl would often [[RonTheDeathEater portray Trent as a shallow, abusive jerk]]. The Trent hate abated after Gwen dumped Trent on the show, ironically for the opposite reason that he was too [[CrazyJealousGuy clingy, needy and jealous]].
** Another major [[ShipToShipCombat shipping war]]: [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Duncan]] / [[WellExcuseMePrincess Courtney]] vs. [[LauncherOfAThousandShips Duncan]]/Gwen. A rare example when the writers took away Duncan/[[{{Tsundere}} Courtney's]] canonical status and [[RelationshipUpgrade gave it to]] Duncan/[[{{Tsundere}} Gwen]].
** Sierra gets crucified for her massive crush on Cody, due partly to having [[StalkerWithACrush other undesirable traits]] and being [[TheScrappy poorly received in general]]. This was foreshadowed, in a way, when Beth kissed Cody on the cheek as he was voted off in Season 1 and got pilloried for it. Few people like Beth/Cody.
** Alejandro gets quite a lot of hate from Harold/Leshawna, Geoff/Bridgette and Tyler/Lindsay shippers, and anybody who ships Heather with anybody else. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] with [[OfficialCouple everyone but Heather]], because he never had any interest in those other girls and was merely toying with them for his own villainous purposes.
** Owen's [[{{Hatedom}} dislike-dom]] largely overlaps with those who pair Izzy with anyone else. It doesn't help that he once had a WhatTheHellHero moment when he pushed her in front of a serial killer to save his own life. The Owen-hate died down after Owen and Izzy's breakup on the show left shippers free to pair off Izzy without impediment.
** Geoff is an unusual example. Season 2 turned him into a massive JerkAss and nearly broke him and Bridgette up, but he [[HeelFaceTurn regained his moral compass]] by the end of the season and won her back. Shippers who want to pair Bridgette with somebody else sometimes use Geoff's Jerkass period as an excuse to create an AU where he remains a jerk.
** There are many reasons for ''Total Drama'' fans to hate [[AlphaBitch Heather]]. One of these is that she's seen as a threat to the semi-canonical Harold/Leshawna ship.
** [[LovableJock Tyler]] is the butt of many Trent/[[DumbBlonde Lindsay]] jokes.
** When the people who ship Dave with someone else found out that Sky [[spoiler:has a boyfriend back home,]] they hated her even more
* In ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' fandom, Powerpuff/Rowdyruff shippers are surprisingly vicious towards anyone who even touches pairings but the Girls and their color counterparts, even though the Boys are their [[EvilTwin Evil Twins]] and Buttercup had more sexual -- um, tension towards Ace than towards Butch -- and that's just for starters.
* The owner of the [[WesternAnimation/MuchaLucha Rikochet/Buena Girl]] Yahoo! group once ran a poll asking "Do you hate Penny Plutonium because her crush on Rikochet interferes with his relationship with Buena Girl?" Immediately following, he got responses voting for "Yes! Death to Penny Plutonium!"
* Jimmy/Cindy shippers in ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutron'' do not approve of the existence of Betty, or in some cases April. Though, for what it's worth, ''Cindy'' doesn't exactly approve of Betty either. Made weirder because Betty made it clear she ''didn't'' have any romantic interest in Jimmy and basically told Cindy that she could have him. Some fans just can't accept that Cindy is in the wrong with her behavior here.
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'':
** Jeremie Belpois receives this a lot from the Odd/Aelita crowd, he's usually portrayed as an abusive jerk who treats Aelita like his property or as simply caring more about his computer than her, many say Jeremie is simply too selfish and/or boring.
** Ulrich/Yumi shippers tend to take the flawed character aspects of alternate love interests Sissi (who is canonically outwardly annoying, but does show JerkWithAHeartOfGold depths) and William (a canonical StalkerWithACrush, but more dark than evil) and exaggerate them beyond recognition until there's ''no'' way they could threaten their beloved ship. Or the writers save themselves the trouble and kill them off, or pair them with each other. All of which is really unnecessary, since both Sissi and William are canonically {{Hopeless Suitor}}s (Sissi from the beginning and William once [[spoiler: he becomes BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]) Ulrich/Yumi is in much more danger from [[UnresolvedSexualTension Ulrich and Yumi themselves]] than outside forces.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'':
** Many Helga/Arnold shippers hate and despise Lila for Arnold's former crush on her throughout the last part of the series. Which is odd, because Lila did nothing but gently and repeatedly ''turn Arnold down'', and even ''helped'' Helga kiss him after getting her to admit her crush. Granted, it ''has'' been said by WordOfGod that Lila is really [[PlayingHardToGet subconsciously stringing Arnold along]] due to a repressed sexual side, but that still doesn't make her [[RonTheDeathEater the Evil Bitch from Hell!]]
** Ruth and Summer also don't get spared from this, despite the fact that Ruth was insignificant to Arnold after season 1 and Summer was just a one-shot character who was just using Arnold to begin with and already had a boyfriend.
* Dawn from ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam!'' probably gets a lot of hate from Henry/June shippers, when in her first (and probably only) appearance, Henry started flirting with her. [[ShipTease June was not pleased.]]
* One-shot character Kitka the Falcon from ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' occasionally gets hate from Skilene shippers. Said shippers also don't like seeing Marlene paired with Julien or Fred the Squirrel, either.
* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'':
** Bo Peep is constantly bashed on, sometimes for getting in the way of the [[RelationshipWritingFumble Woody/Jessie]] pairing. In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'', Bo is mentioned to have been [[PutOnABus sold to someone else at a yard sale]], leaving her out for good... But it's in the same movie that the [[OppositesAttract Buzz/Jessie]] couple becomes more apparent.
** The Woody/Dolly pairing has also become quite popular with some fanfic authors. There are at least a couple of AU human fics that have turned Bo Peep into an AlphaBitch so that Woody could break up with her and pair with Dolly, his artistic childhood friend.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'':
** Janine Melnitz often becomes the target because of her [[ShipTease love interest Egon Spengler.]] Usually vilified as either an over controlling harpy or a heartless slut. If the pairing is OC/Egon, then this can get especially bad. Doesn't help that Ramis wasn't too fond of Janine/Egon either in the original movies.
** The above ShipSinking of Egon and Janine's attraction in the movies had also led to Louis Tully getting a load of hate and revenge fic from Egon/Janine shippers, despite the fact that the animated Louis barely got to have much a chance with her.
* From ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** Marceline the Vampire Queen is not the favorite character of Finn/Princess Bubblegum shippers when she gets paired with either character. It's since died down after Finn and Marcie both [[ShipSinking sunk the ship]] in the episode "Go With Me" while most of Bubblegum and Marceline's interactions can be interpreted as [[WeUsedToBeFriends a friendship gone sour]] just as much as a relationship gone bad.
** And both Marceline/Finn and Finn/Bubblegum shippers [[ShipToShipCombat have been reduced to screaming messes]] after the appearance of [[ThirdOptionLoveInterest the Flame Princess.]]
** A non-romantic or shippy example: Many fans had this opinion about Lemongrab after Too Young. Never mind the fact that he's an obnoxious, unempathetic, mean jerk - the fact that he (unintentionally) prevented Finn from being with Princess Bubblegum was what got Fubblegum shippers to hate him!
** And let's not forget that in the end of "Red Throne", Cinnamon Bun admitted his love to Flame Princess. That led those who ship Finn and Flame Princess to become outraged. So outraged, many ragequit the show.
* [[spoiler: Lo]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Stoked}}'' is public enemy #1 for Reef/Fin shippers.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Transformers}}'' fans are often the ''embodiment'' of this trope, with Prowl/Jazz frequently serving as the poster child.
* Surprisingly, there's little to none of this immature behavior in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' fandom, despite the LoveTriangle between [[FieryRedhead Shayera/Hawkgirl]], Mari/Vixen and [[Comicbook/GreenLantern John/Green Lantern]]. Maybe it's helped by how, yanno, the three ''act more or less like adults'' in canon about it? [[spoiler: Then again, it ''is'' also canon that Rex/Warhawk is Shayera and John's KidFromTheFuture, so maybe the GL/HG fans don't feel ''that'' threatened since they know Mari will be out of the picture later without any need to derail her.]]
* Oh God, ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts''. It was BAD. Youtube was the real warzone for a while, until one user put their foot down and put a stop to the bashing. It then moved to Fanfiction, up until yet another user put their foot down. The VocalMinority were basically terrorists, [[FanDumb claiming]] that the show has evidence (which was parodied in another Youtube video, which has just as much "evidence" as [[OneTruePairing Martin/Aviva]]). And poor Chris. Poor, poor Chris, who did nothing wrong, was [[DroppedABridgeOnHim victimized]], all for being Martin's brother. The only way to stop it is to fight fire with fire. The VocalMinority count is set to 4 total- that person created approximately 20 sockpuppets. [[BrainBleach Woe upon us all...]]
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Even the [[NoHuggingNoKissing romance free]] My Little Ponies aren't safe from this. Miss Cheerilee used to be a well liked background pony. Then the synopsis for the episode "Hearts and Hooves Day" said she would be going on a date with Big Macintosh. Since Big Macintosh was a LauncherOfAThousandShips, the fallout from [=FlutterMac=], [=TwiMac=], etc. shippers was ''vicious'', even in spite of the fact that (a) it was an episode about the Cutie Mark Crusaders setting up the pair, and everything they do is usually an adorable failure, (b) ultimately, the episode ended on a ''very'' ambiguous MaybeEverAfter, and (c) any other hints of a continued relationship between Cheerilee and Big Mac were never mentioned or spoken of for the rest of the season. However, a scene in the episode Just for Sidekicks shows Cheerilee and Big Mac walking side by side in the background, the latter of which is carrying a basket of apples and implying that the two are ''possibly'' forming a relationship. But try telling that to those wishing death on Cheerilee and calling her among other things, a scarlet woman (because according to the fandom, she is older than Big Macintosh).
** Princess Cadance and Shining Armor, one of the few canon couples in the show, get this a lot. Mostly Shining. Cadance's [[WhoWantsToLiveForever unspecified]] [[MayflyDecemberRomance mortal status]] as an alicorn may or may not actually justify it.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'': Flash Sentry was hit by loads of fandom flak before he even got a name (even before the movie came out, bringing with it every last ounce of ShipTease you'd expect). Just seeing official artwork of him standing next to Twilight was enough to spark enough shipping rage to last a decade.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'':
** In light of the recent timeskip for Season 2, "Invasion." Every {{Fangirl}} who has shipped Superboy and Miss Martian together are all up in arms over their breakup, and her being with Lagoon Boy. There is so much hate for poor La'gaan that it's starting to turn into [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks hate for the show in general]] as far as they're concerned. Those fans of the show who remember the MST3KMantra have started referring to them as [[FanCommunityNickname "Keezy Fem,"]] a derogatory term in [[WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperHeroes Interlac]], used InUniverse by {{Lobo}} in reference to WonderGirl and ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}, who were in his way on a bounty-hunting job in the first episode of Season 2.
** Also, while Nightwing is loved by just about everyone in the fandom, if you pair him up with either Wally or Artemis, some [[OfficialCouple Spitfire]] shippers can get ugly.
** Bette Kane's appearance in the tie-in comic and the revelation that [[spoiler: she and Nightwing had a one-night stand together (which Greg Weisman teased "could lead to something more")]] got shippers of Nightwing/Batgirl angry, as it was given as one reason why Barbara wasn't ready to settle down into a relationship with Dick just yet (between that, and his flirting with Rocket and Zatanna). To add to the distaste for Bette, she was portrayed as having forgotten Dick's name and not even remembering who he was.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'':
** Poor, poor Captain Rex. Anakin/Ahsoka shippers utterly LOVE to make him an abusive boyfriend or husband for [[LauncherOfAThousandShips Ahsoka]] so that she'll go to Anakin for help.
** Not that "Rexsoka" could really be a possibility anyway, what with Rex being a clone who would age twice as fast (if he wasn't older than her already).
** And not that ''Anisoka'' is really a possibility either, what with Anakin being Ahsoka's Big Brother figure and already married to Padme.
*** But the fandom loves to make Padme out to be a domineering, emotionally distant bitch to get Anakin to run to Ahsoka.
**** Unlike most shippers, [[ForegoneConclusion the "Die" part of Die For Our Ship is going to happen anyway.]]
** Boba/Ahsoka fans like to vilify Anakin.
*** So do Rex/Ahsoka fans. And Lux/Ahsoka fans.
**** Given that the entire point of the Prequel Trilogy was to show the downward descent of Anakin Skywalker, this is a tricky one to judge as there is a measure of JustifiedTrope in play here.
** Then there came Steela in the Season Five Onderon arc. Cue fangirl jabs about her being a "cougar" (because she's got a crush on a guy a few years younger than her), in addition to the usual accusations of "bitch" and "slut". This died down at the end of the arc, when she turned out to be a RomanticFalseLead who [[spoiler: actually did die]]. Cue the hurt/comfort Luxsoka fics with Ahsoka consoling Lux over this development.
*** And also cue a few of the more outspoken Luxsoka shippers cheering at [[spoiler: Steela's death]] and pretending she never existed in the first place.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' fans who pair Brian with Jillian hate Derek Wilcox.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'': ''Alice'' is not even immune to this, as a vocal minority of Warden/Mistress fans have invoked this trope on her for allegedly "stealing" Mistress from Warden, and for Warden having an (unrequited) crush on her instead of having feelings for the Mistress. In some cases, she gets hate for being in the way of shipping Warden with OCs, even though it's repeatedly shown that she doesn't feel the same for the Warden as he does for her. Less commonly but most egregiously, transphobic comments wind up leveled at her for not being a "real woman" for Warden to lust over.
* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'': Aisha/Nabu fans HATE Roy. Especially now that it seems the writers are making him her new love interest.
* Fans of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' really hate Casey. They didn't even wait for him to make an appearance before bashing him. They started hating him because they were worried that he'd ruin their Apritello pairing. Even though WordOfGod says that Donnie's crush on April is PlayedForLaughs, the fans take the crush ''seriously''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Die for our Ho Yay ship]]
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'': The [[RuleThirtyFour 3/4]] shippers (the name is often used intentionally) are constantly at war with the HoYay-obsessed 14 shippers.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'':
** There are the bitter LesYay shippers who are still convinced Tom was invented for the sole purpose of ruining their fantasies. This despite both Daria and Jane (''especially'' Jane) constantly showing interest in and pursuing men.
** It should be noted that after a decade, however, the whole ShipToShipCombat in the fandom has died down a lot; the old fans have gotten over it and many of the newer ones went into the series knowing what was going to happen. These days, Tom-bashing is more a tongue-in-cheek joke than anything.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'':
** A good portion of Kigo writers portray Ron as a completely incompetent, useless tag-along who doesn't have any redeeming qualities -- that is, someone who doesn't "deserve" Kim. The more extreme shippers portray his friendship with Kim as little more than "generosity" (that is, pity) on Kim's part. He usually isn't killed by such writers, but he usually has his role reduced to little more than an annoying [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] everyone else puts up with.
** Kigo writers have a habit of taking Drakken to one of two extremes to get him out of the picture. One has him be a bigoted {{Jerkass}} who can't stand to see Shego with anyone else (especially not a woman); the other has him be a worthless loser who couldn't tie his shoes without Shego and is holding her back from being successful.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'': Ben's LoveInterest Julie is not liked by the Kevin/Ben shippers.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'':
** [[PandaingToTheAudience Peter]] isn't too well liked by the [[FoeYay Perry/Doofenshmirtz]] shippers.
** Isabella gets this from time to time for her crush on [[CheerfulChild Phineas]], especially from [[NotBloodSiblings Phineas/Ferb]] shippers.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Balto}}'': There is an obnoxious tendency on the part of Kodi/Dusty shippers to kill off the characters Ralph and Kirby; in the first case Dusty/Ralph is ''canon'' according to WordOfGod with Kodi/Kirby just being a consequence of mild HoYay. And don't think about shipping Kodi/Dusty ''and'' Kirby/Ralph; it's a ticket to the afterlife. That said, many people also kill [[TheScrappy Stella]] (the female goose from the second sequel, which is also from where all the characters mentioned in this paragraph come from), and whereas they pair Boris with someone else or not is irrelevant.
* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'': Jessie gets it a bit from the Buzz/Woody shippers.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' Janine Melnitz gets it from the Egon/Peter fans.
* Leela from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' often gets shafted in Fry/Bender fics as [[RonTheDeathEater a cruel, snobbish, manipulative, ungrateful bitch]]. Stories like this often culminate in Bender protecting Fry from Leela, leading Fry to realize that Bender is his true love, and [[LoveMartyr his (Fry's) longing for Leela is unhealthy]] because she, unlike Bender, doesn't give a damn about how much Fry loves her and/or is extremely abusive towards him. This despite the fact that Bender is canonically ''far, far'' more [[{{Jerkass}} physically and emotionally abusive]] towards Fry than Leela is, not to mention ''canonically'' [[LivingEmotionalCrutch manipulative and needy]] [[{{Yandere}} and near-psychotically possessive]]. Since [[DysfunctionJunction everyone in Futurama is royally screwed up]], having Leela being mildly abusive (but far less abusive than Bender) towards Fry would be acceptably in-character—it's only when Leela manages to top Bender in abusiveness that signals that this trope has come into play.
* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'': Margaret and Eileen]] are hated by the Mordecai/Rigby [[YaoiFangirl Yaoi Fangirls]] (and some Fanboys)
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Sidekick}}'' fandom, Kitty and Vana are despised by the Trevor/Eric [[YaoiFangirl fangirls]] for obvious reasons.
* There are the type of ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' fans that believe Abigail gets in the way of their favored slash ships, even though she did not show as much interest in Pickles as he did for her. She still gets hate regardless.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Being a highly popular show, will naturally have fans(besides the het examples above) hating characters for their Les/Ho Yay Ships as well. Miss Cheerilee is less then liked by the [=CarMac=] or other Big Macintosh/anyone else fabs.
** There's some of this between people who ship Rainbow Dash with Applejack and people who ship her with Pinkie Pie.
*** [[TheLongList And people who ship her with Twilight and people who ship her with Fluttershy and people who ship her with Spitfire and people who ship her with Gilda.]]
** Oh hell. If you dare to ship any two (or more) ponies that aren't [[FanPreferredCouple Lyra and Bon Bon]], you'll get hit by some fire.
** Strangly enough, Princess Cadence is usually well loved by almost everyone in the general consensuses. However, on the Rule34 side of the MLP FiM fandom, she is loathed by most of the yaoi fans, incest fans, and especially fans of pairings of Shining Armor with any pony (e.g Shining/Trixie, Shining/Big Mac, etc) but Cadence. As of late, the Shining Armor/Cadence pairing is one of the least popular (ironically enough, the pairing is well beloved by almost every fan of the series) in shipping. In fact, most of the time the reason why Shining Armor would die for their ship is more because of the implied MayDecemberRomance.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'': Flash Sentry was hit by loads of fandom flak before he even got a name (even before the movie came out, bringing with it every last ounce of ShipTease you'd expect). Just seeing official artwork of him standing next to Twilight was enough to spark enough shipping rage to last a decade.
* Despite what some people think, the ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarepants'' fandom does have shippers, and more than enough of the ones that pair Spongebob with either Patrick, Squidward, or some other male character from the show have a blinding hatred for Sandy Cheeks and those who support the Spongebob/Sandy couple for having the nerve to think Spongebob likes her. Surprisingly, there doesn't seem to be much argument between those who ship other slash pairings, nor do they seem to do the same with Pearl. (Then again, [[TheScrappy it's Pearl]] and not too many people ship her with Spongebob anyway.)
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'':
** In the Total Drama Fandom, most Noah/Cody shippers absolutely despise Sierra due to her extensive stalkerish crush on Cody.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'':
** Infamously, it also has cases of Ho Yay ships that invite hatred towards any female characters that are deemed to "interfere" with male-on-male pairings. It is incredibly rare to see male characters hated for interference with female-only ships, due to the show's SmurfettePrinciple:
** The Mistress received some very over-the-top hatred from fans that preferred shipping the Warden with Lord Stingray, or that felt she was getting in the way of any of their pairings (despite the fact that she and Warden were ''not'' an official couple). The bashing died down a little after season 3, mainly because her sleeping with Alice and becoming a hippie in need of no men seemed to have momentarily killed the possibility of her "cockblocking" slash. However, as Mistress has now been reported to go through yet another change and with the ShipToShipCombat that already exists, this too may fire up again.
** Charise is generally accepted as Jared's love interest, but some of the Warden/Jared shippers would rather she die or disappear for their pairing to be made more possible.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'':
** shippers of the [[KissingCousins Ben/Gwen]] pairing have, more than once, bashed [[PsychoForHire Kevin]] for getting together with Gwen in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce''.
** Ben's LoveInterest Julie is bashed for this reason as well.
* Many of the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' shippers will sometimes bash on Princess Cadence for "getting" in the way of the [[BrotherSisterIncest Shining Armor/Twilight Sparkle]] relationship to a point where certain fanfics and certain fanart (though rare) depict her [[RonTheDeathEater as a manipulative bitch, a battered abuse victim or otherwise an apathetic wife]] just to serve as a conflict of those stories.
