* UsefulNotes/BarackObama and UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton is a surprisingly popular ''politics'' ship.
* TomFelton and EmmaWatson, who play DracoMalfoy and HermioneGranger respectively, have a close friendship, even after Emma admitting her "terrible crush" on Tom when she was twelve. Fans still speculate there is something between them despite the fact that Tom is happily involved with his girlfriend.
* Despite their banter on-screen as DamonSalvatore and BonnieBennett, IanSomerhalder and KatGraham display a close frienship in real life. Despite the fact each have their own relationships fans still seem to ship them.
* There is a staggeringly large demographic that ships UsefulNotes/ThomasJefferson[=/=]UsefulNotes/JohnAdams, despite them having both been married and Jefferson's long-term relationship with his dead wife's enslaved half-sister, not to mention the decades-long hate-on where they never ''saw'' each other (though that may only have ''[[FoeYayShipping encouraged]]'' said demographic) plus Adams and his wife having written some of the spiciest, raciest love letters ever to come out of American politics to each other. This example probably more properly belongs under theater as it's likely an outgrowth of ''[[Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix 1776]]'' the musical.
* As per the introduction, AliceAndBob. Probably because canon keeps using them to illustrate concepts instead of mining for the obvious romantic potential.
* Although they've been broken up for several years and have moved on to other relationships, Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas still have a large fanbase with a large of percentage of the Hannah Montana stories on Fanfiction.net consisting of this pairing (despite it being against site rules)
** Similarly Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez have a massive fandom.
* Oddly, many LetsPlay viewers seem to think LetsPlay/{{Lucahjin}} and LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun should be together.
** LetsPlay/{{MasaeAnela}} and LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}} are pretty popular, too.
* Go to any site that hosts One Direction fic. The vast majority will focus on Harry/Louis.
* Recently JenniferLawrence and Bradley Cooper. They're not dating and say that they won't in the future. But the chemistry is undeniable as they continue to act in movies together.
* Many fans of ''NeverMindTheBuzzcocks'' ship NoelFielding and PalomaFaith, mainly because they're both absolutely insane, and they really hit it off on the first show where they both appeared.
