* [[BadassAdorable Lucky]]/[[TimeTravelRomance Rebecca]] and [[LittleMissSnarker Cadpig]]/[[HandicappedBadass Tripod]] are two notable examples in the ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' animated series fanbase.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** The episode "What Was Missing" caused an ''explosion'' in the popularity of Bubblegum/Marceline, and from there it grew until it almost dominated the whole fandom, with the largest chunk of fanart and fanfiction devoted to them.
** Another fan preferred couple would be the genderbent versions of Marceline and Bubblegum. Marshall Lee/Gumball.
** Finn is often paired with his genderbent counterpart, Fionna. Though just as many authors and artists depict them as either JustFriends or long-lost twins, usually the latter.
* [[BirdsofAFeather Tommy/Kimi]] and [[OppositesAttract Chuckie/Angelica]] are both fairly popular in the ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' fandom, the former because it is suggested that she might have a crush on him in one episode and the latter because of the surprising amount of chemistry they have as an OddCouple.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' Among the show's fandom, Gumball and Carrie ship remains popular even Gumball and his love interest, Penny, become official couple in S3. Interestingly, Ben, the creator of the show, finds the fans' pairing amusing.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** The Zuko/Katara (aka "Zutara") fanbase is legendary. The "Ember Island Players" episode [[FandomNod lampshaded this tendency heavily]] with a play that put Zuko and Katara together and having her refer to Aang, repeatedly, as [[LikeBrotherAndSister "like a little brother"]].
** Despite Sokka having a canon girlfriend in Suki, more people ship him with Toph (who canonically has a PrecociousCrush on him).
* In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' fandom, the majority of the fans go for Terry with his best friend Max or one-time girlfriend [[DatingCatwoman Melanie]]. Few actually pair him with his canon girlfriend Dana Tan, as she's [[OutOfFocus the least developed character of the three]]. In the Season One DVD Behind the Scenes featurette, it is discovered that Alan Burnett wanted to write an episode where Terry and Max ended up together, but Bruce Timm refused, as he'd originally intended the episode to have Terry and Dana stay together, and Terry ends up getting hitched to Dana in the future as shown in the JLU episode "Epilogue."
* In ''WesternAnimation/BenTen'' the preferred couple was definitely Ben and his cousin Gwen.
** ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', According to FF.net, four of five most favourited romance stories are Ben/Kevin.
** ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' introduced several possible love interests for Ben before settling with Kai. Unfortunately for Kai, she had two things going against her: 1) the shipping was heavily focused in the final arc, and the writers introduced [[KidFromTheFuture Spanner]] to actively ''force'' the pairing, and 2) Looma Redwind and Esther were very popular since their debut. Esther/Ben itself is the more popular het ship for Ben.
* Until well into 1990, ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''' preferred shipping was Dale/Gadget, pairing [[SmurfettePrinciple the only girl on the team]] with the fun-loving goofball rather than with the bossy workaholic. But then came "Good Times, Bat Times" and brought [[EnsembleDarkhorse Foxglove]] with it. She and Dale looked so cute together in what came closest to a happy relationship for a Ranger in the entire show that Dale was out of the LoveTriangle for many many Rangerphiles. FanFic and FanArt keep shipping the two, and [[ComicBook/ChipNDaleRescueRangers the Boom! Comics]] support this ship as closely to {{Canon}} as possible.
** This did make way for Chip/Gadget, but while they do have a whole lot of supporters, they're the reason for a case of BrokenBase: Despite [[SmittenTeenageGirl Tammy's crush on Chip]] ("Adventures in Squirrelsitting") and Gadget's potential crush on Sparky ("Does Pavlov Ring a Bell?"), the question isn't with whom to ship Chip and/or Gadget. It's rather [i]whether or not[/i] to ship Chip and Gadget. Among the fans, there are the Pros who support this ship and make it the second FanPreferredCouple, there are the Antis who oppose it, whether or not they have an alternative, and then there are [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Neutrals]] who keep themselves outside of the debate.
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'': Just about ''any'' non-canonical pairing involving Nigel Uno is more popular than his canon relationship with Lizzie -- though the most popular seems to be Nigel/Rachel (1/362), with Nigel/Abigail (1/5) as the second most popular.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'' has Jay and Alice, which is one of the reasons why the web series wasn't well received. Considering how much trouble Jay went through in season 2 to be with Alice (especially the next to last ep), you can't blame their reaction at seeing Jay trying to woo another girl.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'':
** Much of the fandom dislikes [[OfficialCouple Daria/Tom]] and would have preferred that Daria's one-sided crush on Trent eventually been [[ObliviousToLove noticed]] and requited.
** For some bizarre reason Jane also gets paired up with Mr. D of all people fairly often.
* ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'' has El Tigre and Black Cuervo. It was so popular 'Tigre + Cuervo Forever', a catch phrase for the ET/BC following, became the title of an episode. Meanwhile, Frida gets paired with either Dr. Chipotle Jr or Sergio a lot. Frida/Django is quite popular, too.
* [[HoYay Brian/Stewie]] from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' gets a lot of love, given how blatant Stewie's affection for Brian is and the amount of episodes centered around the two and their interactions. The episode ''Brian and Stewie'' is especially well-received by fans of [[PortmanteauCoupleName Brewie]].
* Although ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}'' was created as a NoHuggingNoKissing series, Fillmore/Ingrid have a fanbase of a rather impressive size. The shippers have a lot to base off of, since their buddy-cop conversations can often be taken as a subtle DoubleEntendre, sounding somewhat flirtatiously on more than one occasion.
* ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'':
** Despite the ShipSinking, the age difference, and Rex himself being a ShipperOnDeck for 6/Holiday, you'll still find [[MayDecemberRomance Rex and Holiday]] to be one of the most popular pairings in the fandom.
** There seems to be a good amount towards Rex/Breach.
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'':
** ''Gravity Falls'' gives [[{{Adorkable}} Dipper]] and [[GenkiGirl Mabel]], who fit pretty nicely into the SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl archetypes perfectly and are extremely close to each other. There's just one detail in that, [[IncestYayShipping they're brother and sister]], twins at that. [[ToyShip And they're both 12.]] No, this doesn't deter the fanbase one bit in case you were wondering. It even has its own PortmanteauCoupleName, Pinecest.
** One of the most popular ships in the fandom, despite their age differences, is Dipper and Wendy (Wendip for short) given their incredible chemistry.
** The other popular ship in the fandom happens to be Dipper/[[DefrostingIceQueen Pacifica]] (Dipcifica for short). Heavily teased by the creators during "Northwest Mansion Mystery" and [[spoiler:made canon (on Dipper's side at least) in a post-series book.]]
** Alternative circles of fans, like on the AO3, have Dipper/Bill as one of the most popular couples.
** Mabel/Pacifica (Mabifica) is very popular due to people liking how their personalities would work together. There's a good chunk of ShipToShipCombat between it and Dipcifica fans, though a SiblingTriangle is avoided in most fanworks.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'', There's a sizable fan community for Nick/Mina, who ship them because Nick is one of the nicest characters in the show and Mina is a long-suffering woobie.
** That said, everyone ships Laney and Corey, with the vast majority of fan art featuring them.
* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' is a NoHuggingNoKissing show, but still has several common pairings. The most popular ([[BrokenBase but also most reviled]]) is the perceived FoeYay between [[TheNapoleon Zim]] and his rival, [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Dib]]. For a straight example, Zim and Gaz (Dib's malevolent little sister) is also extremely popular, with Dib and Tak (a [[EnsembleDarkHorse one-episode wonder]] female Irken invader) being less popular than either of the aforementioned, but still a major presence in the fandom.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' has Stormer/Kimber. The ship spawned due to "The Bands Break Up", which involved Stormer and Kimber developing an incredibly LesYay laden RomanticTwoGirlFriendship. It [[StatusQuoIsGod never gets referenced]] after Stormer goes back to The Misfits and Kimber has at least two boyfriends during the course of the series, but that hasn't stopped fans from writing them as best friends or having Kimber end up with Stormer sometime post-series. The ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'' reboot outright made them an OfficialCouple from the start.
* An overwhelming majority of the ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'' fandom ships Jesse with Jonny. In the lead in movie to the ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'', Jonny and Jessie had mutual crushes on each other.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' fandom, the amount of [[LesYay Kim]]/[[FoeYay Shego]] ([[PortmanteauCoupleName Kigo]]) FanArt and FanFiction far outnumber that of the OfficialCouple Kim/Ron.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'':
** The series launched with a strong following from Korra, the main character, and Mako, as opposed to the starting couple of Mako/Asami.
** Korra/Asami was a small but popular crack ship alternative to Mako/Korra and Korra/Asami during book 1. Later on in the series, a good amount of the fandom eventually gravitated towards Korrasami due to [[spoiler:Makorra and Masami both failing]] and the [[LesYay chemistry]] going on between the girls. At the end, [[spoiler:Korrasami became the OfficialCouple.]]
** Within hours of their debut episode, Avatar Wan and Raava started getting shipped by a surprising number of fans. Helped along when one fan drew a humanized version of Raava that the newly christened ship's shippers immediately latched onto.
* [[WordOfGod Rob Renzetti]] confirmed that, had ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' continued, Jenny would have ended up with Sheldon... no doubt upsetting a majority of the fandom, who are Jenny/Brad supporters.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''
** Derpy Hooves and Dr. Hooves are very popular together, to the point of the Doctor being considered the father of Derpy's fanon daughter Dinky. The episode "Slice of Life" has the Doctor has the one pony Derpy turns to and one of the few ponies that does not view her as a walking disaster (the Doctor even let's Derpy walk around his "workshop" and play around without a care) and towards the end Derpy gives the Doctor a sweet hug. Let this ship sail!
** While the vast majority of the cast is shipped with everyone else, [[FanNickname Lyra and Bon Bon]] tend to be paired almost exclusively which each other. Case in point, do a search for either character and you'll get almost nothing but Lyra/Bon Bon pictures, whereas if you try a similar search with any other characters you'll probably get five or six different pairings before you get past the first page. There are outliers that pair them up with other characters, of course, but the pairing is so widespread in the fandom that in most fanworks its assumed to be the case unless it's explicitly stated otherwise. When the two met up at a Ponyville market in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E19PuttingYourHoofDown Putting Your Hoof Down]], their saddle bags had each other's cutie mark on them And ''then'' [[GoesToEleven sent over the top]] by their human versions' "love duet" performance in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks''. While "Slice of Life" had them constantly refer to themselves as 'best friends', their constantly looking at each other with bedroom eyes and having blatantly romantic body language has many in the fandom convinced that not only has their ship sailed it is on an around-the-world journey.
** Vinyl Scratch(DJ-[=Pon3=])/Octavia shipping is also extremely popular, with both of them being fan favorite musicians. The episode "Slice of Life" even canonized that the two are roommates.
** The introduction of the dragon princess Ember in Season 6 has seen a landslide of stories and art pairing her with Spike.
** While pretty much every main character is a LauncherOfAThousandShips and the main characters are paired in every combination, the most popular ships seem to be Dash/Pinkie, Dash/Applejack, Dash/Fluttershy, and Rarity/Applejack. These are in large part due to their chemistry and to their screentime together, especially in early episodes.
* ''WesternAnimation/PennZeroPartTimeHero'' let's face it, most of the fandom ships Penn/Sashi. They're practical canon, minus the canon part.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'':
** Ferb and Gretchen has become popular with those who have a hard time overlooking the age gap between Ferb and Vanessa (but have an easy time overlooking the fact that [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight Ferb and Gretchen have hardly interacted at all in the show itself]]). Yet the very second Monty is introduced as a love interest for Vanessa, Ferbnessa becomes more popular.
** There is also a sizable set of Doofenshmirtz/Linda shippers, to the point that it's a YMMV/WMG that he is Phineas' father. Doesn't help that it's canon that they used to date.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'':
** Professor Utonium and Ms. Keane has a strong fan following. They were the subject of one episode late into the series, and it was thoroughly deconstructed [[spoiler:and eventually annulled by Ms. Keane's cat, with the Professor having an aversion to cats due to one being the BigBad of [[ContinuityNod an earlier episode]].]]
** [[ToyShip Pairing the girls with]] [[DistaffCounterpart their Rowdyruff Boys counterparts]] is ''the'' most popular shipping target of the fandom. This was lampshaded in season six's "City Of Clipsville", which was intended as a TakeThat to the shippers. [[MisaimedFandom It was actually embraced by the shippers]].
* While many ''WesternAnimation/RandyCunninghamNinthGradeNinja'' fans ship what seems to be the intended endgame of Randy/Theresa ("Fowlham"), even more ship Randy and Howard ("Weinerham"), probably due to the show having all of the usual questionable bro closeness without so much of the "no homo" that usually comes with it.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''
** T.J./Spinelli is incredibly popular, ever since their PracticeKiss in "The Experiment" and the confirmation on Spinelli's side in "Parents' Night".
** Also Gus/Cornchip Girl, the MoeCouplet of the series. The Japanese title for their episode, "The Army-Navy Game", is "Gus's Girlfriend".
** Vince/Gretchen also has a pretty big following, thanks to all the ShipTease.
* In ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', altough Thomas and CJ never met, [[PairTheSpares fans like pairing them together]], especially from the Mordecai/Margaret fans. Some are the reasons are [[ButtMonkey Thomas]] deserves a nice girl and it beats having the Mor/Mar fans [[DieForOurShip bashing poor CJ]]. But since it was revealed [[spoiler: Thomas' a Russian spy and went on the run,]] it's not known the current status if this ship.
* Even though ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower'' was mostly NoHuggingNoKissing, there's a large following for Twister/Reggie. It's the most commonly encountered pairing in ''Rocket Power'' fanfiction.
* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'':
** While the original '70s cartoon was NoHuggingNoKissing, most of the people at large assumed that Fred/Daphne were at least implied. Meanwhile remnants of Shaggy and Velma being siblings during the show's creation could have been interpreted as pairing of the two.
** In the 80s the subtle hints shifted over to Shaggy/Daphne with the two even sharing a long hug in one episode.
** Since then starting with ''Zombie Island'', Fred/Daphne started being played with more directly to a split base.
** In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', Fred/Daphne and Shaggy/Velma are actual pairings at the start of the show and even offers a moment of Shaggy/Daphne as a MythologyGag.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Sidekick}}'', Eric has a crush on Vana, but fans like him better with [[DatingCatwoman Mandy]] or Kitty instead, never mind the fact that Vana would take any opportunity to leave Eric for dead, and usually needs serious coercion to help save him.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'',
** [[TheEveryman Stan]] has a canon girlfriend, but the fandom seems to like his HoYay and HeterosexualLifePartners status with [[HotBlooded Kyle]] as a better romantic alternative.
** [[EnsembleDarkhorse Craig]] and [[NervousWreck Tweek]]; they are the second most popular pairing (after [[HeterosexualLifePartners Stan and Kyle]]) which is especially surprising considering that they [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight only openly interacted in in one episode]]. The creators eventually responded to this in [[Recap/SouthParkS19E6TweekXCraig an episode dedicated to the pairing]], which, [[AmbiguousSituation according to your interpretation]], [[spoiler: may have made them an OfficialCouple]]. Needless to say, the pairing's popularity has gone up even among fans who don't normally ship.
* Besides the apparent OfficialCouple of Mister Smarty Smarts and Octocat on ''WesternAnimation/{{Spliced}}'', there seems to be a preference for Peri/Patricia, for [[OppositesAttract one]] [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan reason]] [[BirdsOfAFeather or]] [[ThemePairing another]].
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'': Ahsoka/Rex ([[PortmanteauCoupleName Rexsoka]]) remains the most popular Ahsoka pairing, even though she has a canon love interest in Lux Bonteri. This is probably because Lux is comparatively new on the scene, and Rexsoka was already well-established in the fandom before his episode premiered in Season 3. Karen Traviss and Karen Miller's [[ShipTease teases towards Rexsoka]] in the novels did ''not'' help things.
* Reef/Fin from ''WesternAnimation/{{Stoked}}'' is ''easily'' more popular than any other pairing on the show, [[spoiler:even though Reef/Lo is the OfficialCouple as of season two]].
* ''WesternAnimation/SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo'' has a weird case of this. Hints dropped in the series originally seemed to show Otto/Nova as canon, but it seemed like almost everybody in the fandom shipped Sprx/Nova. Then hints of that started to show and eventually it became the canon. A comment from one of the voice actors mixed with that the creator does pay attention to the fandom seems to hint that the coupling was changed because of this, making the FPC the OfficialCouple.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'':
** Since the beginning, many fans have embraced the idea of Warden/Mistress (Misden or Wardess) getting together, most of the time [[FoeYayShipping being aware that they are foes]]. As of Season 3, this does not appear possible.
** Alice/Mistress shippers, even though the relationship would in likelihood be as one-sided as Warden's affections for Alice (as Alice seemed unimpressed at Mistress' change and remarked on forgetting how "needy" women can be).
%% * ''WesternAnimation/SushiPack'' has Ikura/Kani and Tako/Maguro.
* ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'': The pairing of Ilana and Lance (dubbed Ilanca by the shippers) has been favored since the very first episode, despite how in the show they're posing as siblings and have other potential love interests, and the show's creator Genndy Tartakovsky, has stated in interviews that he wants their relationship to be a platonic one.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Beast Boy/Raven. The creators of the show repeatedly stated that Beast Boy/Raven would never happen, yet it was an increasingly popular to the point where it's considered intentional by a large chunk of fans and it's the [[ShipMates preferred complementary ship for Starfire/Robin shippers]]. At the very least a substantially large amount of people preferred it to the official canon couple of Beast Boy and Terra (the difference on FF.net is about ''twelvefold'' in the romance category), and popular enough to occasionally get a bone thrown at them in the mainstream comics. The animated comedy ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' has completly embraced the pairing, dedicating several moments and whole episodes to their relationship.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', EnsembleDarkHorse Fifi la Fume is occasionally depicted as the target of a crush by Hampton J. Pig. In the fandom, very few acknowledge this, as most prefer to portray Fifi finding love with her male feline classmate, Furrball. This stems predominantly from the fact that Fifi having a crush on Furrball is canon to one episode (although it goes nowhere, Furrball's dislike of Fifi as a SmellySkunk has to do with her stench and he doesn't dislike her as a person), the fact that this would further Fifi's resemblance to her inspiration[[note]]Fifi is a {{Gender Flip}}ped expy of WesternAnimation/PepeLePew, whose running (if somewhat reluctant) love interest is the female Penelope Cat[[/note]], and the fact that Furrball is a [[TheChewToy sympathetically unlucky, unloved and abused]] UnpopularPopularCharacter and Fifi is an EnsembleDarkHorse with a lot of love to give.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'':
** [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Duncan]]/[[PerkyGoth Gwen]] was this to [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Duncan]]/[[WellExcuseMePrincess Courtney]], but then it became canon so the fan preference switched to Trent/Gwen and Courtney/Gwen instead.
** Because ''Total Drama'' has [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters so many major characters]] and an active {{Crack Ship}}ping community, this trope happens a lot for the less popular couples--for example, [[CloudCuckooLander Izzy]] is paired more with [[DeadpanSnarker Noah]] or [[HomeschooledKids Ezekiel]] than her canon boyfriend [[BigEater Owen]], while [[IronButtmonkey Tyler]] gets ignored so [[DumbBlonde Lindsay]] can wind up with Trent instead.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'':
** [[OneTrueThreesome Sam/Alex/Clover]] ship. It doesn't help that most of the boys the three are interested in tend to be [[GirlOfTheWeek one-shots]], bar [[RecurringCharacter their fellow spy Blaine]].
** Sam and [[DatingCatwoman recurring villain Tim Scam]] also seems to be a popular ship among the fans, given that it takes up a good chunk of the ''Totally Spies'' archive on FF.net.
* ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'': [[ManipulativeBastard Prowl]] and [[JiveTurkey Jazz]] might well embody this. In canon, regardless of cartoon or comic, they barely interact, and the few times they do, they generally dislike each other, and yet they have hundreds of fics on FFN. There are [[TransformersAnimated reboots]] where the two are on good terms, but most of the fanfics pairing them are about the G1 characters. There doesn't seem to be any base to the pairing other than "they're both white cars from the 1984 line" and "they could have chemistry, [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight theoretically.]]" It gets to the point where Prowl/Jazz fans can get [[DieForOurShip downright rude]] towards characters who ''do'' show affection toward Prowl (most famously [[ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye Chromedome]] and the [[ComicBook/TheTransformersRobotsInDisguise Constructicons]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'':
** By far the most popular pairing is Knock Out/Breakdown, despite Breakdown having shown interest in Airachnid.
** [[RoboShip Jack/Arcee]] is quite popular as well, even though WordOfGod denies any romantic feelings between them. But due to the RelationshipWritingFumble, it gets hinted alot that there may be some deeper feelings between them, which only gives the fans more fuel.
* ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' has Beck/Paige due to the less than subtle FoeYay.
* Plenty of ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy'' fans ship Dudley/Kitty. This is actually supported by WordOfGod.
* Given the rampant amount of HoYay between them on ''WesternAnimation/UglyAmericans'', Randall/Mark is pretty popular in fan-art.
* So far there is no Love Interest for anyone in ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'', but Wander/Lord Hater is already being hardcore shipped.
* ''WesternAnimation/WordGirl'': While neither couple is official, Becky/Tobey is easily more popular than Becky/Scoops.
* ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' gives Raimundo and Kimiko a bit of ShipTease, but never follows through with making them an OfficialCouple. The fandom near universally ships them anyway. Fans of HoYay also have Chase/Jack.
* In ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'', while Scott/Rogue was a favorite of many of the shows creators (and had a large fanbase to speak of), fan support for Gambit/Rogue was so popular that eventually the writers gave an entire episode devoting time to the possibility, and the last image of the series suggested they were together. Interesting fact is that the writers, in the first scene Rogue and Gambit shared, had apparently intended to insinuate a ''past'' relationship between them (or so it is claimed); fandom was strong enough that if this plan was ever in the cards, it was ''dis''carded in favour of actually developing their chemistry onscreen, even if just for one episode.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' fandom has Artemis/Robin (due to him having more interaction with her than any of [[ReallyGetsAround his four actual love interests]]); plus, while Artemis gets a RelationshipUpgrade with Wally, a number of fans disliked it due to the cliched BelligerentSexualTension and [[StrangledByTheRedString a perceived lack of chemistry]], though of course this opinion isn't universal. Slash fandom also shows a strong preference for [[HeterosexualLifePartners Dick/Wally]], which isn't hurt by the fact that [[spoiler:Wally's death leads to Nightwing taking a leave of absence from the Team due to grief.]]
* There are no pairings in ''WesternAnimation/TheZetaProject'', but fandom loves Zeta and Ro together as a pairing. It's actually a challenge to find fanfics that ''aren't'' Zeta/Ro.
