Look at it this way: if a character is in Inazuma Eleven, there's a HoYay FanPreferredCouple for him.
** It helps there is only one OfficialCouple, and it has [[spoiler:two different out comes.]]
!! ''Inazuma Eleven''
* The scene between Someoka and Fubuki in the second season episode pictured on the right is the more glaring example.
** That's just the start. If one notices closer, they stand beside each other on nearly every single time they are shown on screen. And then there's their interactions and how much Someoka had to change after meeting Fubuki. Don't forget that[[spoiler: Fubuki joined the team to somehow replace Gouenji, therefore Someoka didn't like him from the beginning acting hostile until he got to accept him as a comrade. Someoka seemed to have a onesided crush on Gouenji because of this]]. And there was that Dark Emperor Match, where it sounds like they are dealing with a bad break up.
** Let's not miss the movie: ''The Strongest Army, Ogre!'' where Fubuki [[spoiler:who came from the future]] ends up wearing Someoka's uniform.
** Taken UpToEleven in Ares no Tenbin where Someoka [[spoiler: joined Hakuren after Raimon split up.]]
* Endou and Domon gets a moment as well, when they were talking about stars and planets and where Aliea Academy came from, cue both of them running together smiling at each other across space towards the Earth.
* The seiyuu seem pretty keen on it too!
** Kaji thinks of Kidou, Sakuma, and Fudou's relationship like a love triangle, with Sakuma being "the jealous girl".
** He also comments in an interview alongside Konno (in an article based on their characters) that "if Ichinose and Domon were a boy and girl, they'd make a good husband and wife".
* Continuing with Sakuma, he and Genda are pretty close, appearing in nearly every scene in the first season when not on the field together, especially [[spoiler:in the roller coaster episode 38 when Genda is holding Sakuma in his arms and calling out his name over and over again. He also seems to be looking at him strangely.]]
* Hiroto and Midorikawa. Saginuma sometimes is depicted in a love triangle with these two. Also, Burn and Gazelle.
** Hiroto/Midorikawa is fueled even further when Midorikawa appears in ''GO'' as Hiroto's ''personal secretary''.
* Tsunami and Tachimukai manage to appear in almost ''all'' of the official art together, normally hugging or touching; and in the anime they have plenty of ho yay inducing moments, mostly due to Tsunami acting as Tachimukai's BigBrotherMentor.
* Endou and Kazemaru are stated to be childhood friends. They also sit and stand together very often compared to other characters.
** In the show's second season [[spoiler:Endou was ''very'' affected by Kazemaru leaving the team]].
*** If you think about it, the only difference about the consequences of the first fight with Genesis in both anime and game was that in the game, [[spoiler:iKazemaru had to leave the team due to receiving a beat down]] while in the anime, [[spoiler:he had a heroic BSOD and left on his own.]] Endou only had the [[spoiler:Heroic BSOD]] in the anime. This implies that the only reason Endou was [[spoiler:too depressed to even touch a soccer ball was ''because Kazemaru left the team on his own free will.'']]
** Then there's also Kazemaru's constant sacrificial play for Endou.
---> ''"I have to do something, before Endou...!"''
** Then there's that whole episode on the Dark Emperors...
** In the show's third season, after they [[spoiler:won against Little Gigant]] Kazemaru was shown hugging Endou around the waist as the team yell in celebration.
* In the movie: ''The Strongest Army, Ogre!''; Natsumi comments that when Raimon first met Kidou [[ItMakesSenseInContext the only person he cared about was Gouenji]].
** Then later on in TheMovie those two preform what in now known as [[BlatantLies 'The most Heterosexual Hissatsu Shoot']], [[http://inazuma-eleven.wikia.com/wiki/Prime_Legend seriously, just look at it.]]
* What? Nobody mentioned [[spoiler:Dark Emperors!]]Max and [[spoiler:Dark Emperors!]]Handa yet? Did you guys even see Revolution V? This tropette nicknames it "Gay Tornado".
* Everything Gouenji and Endou do in the same frame together is shipping fuel. Literally everything.
** Taken UpToEleven in ''GO'' when every time they're shown it seems like they're dealing with a bad breakup.
* [[FoeYay Fudou and Kidou]] enter this realm shortly after Fudou's [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]]. Especially after Kageyama's [[spoiler:death]] when -- in the videogames -- Kidou gets a CryCute moment and Fudou seems to be comforting him.
** Then there is the moment when Killer Fields was created.
* [[spoiler: Aphrodi]] seems very interested in Fubuki when he joins the team. So much, that he plays an important role [[spoiler: in motivating Fubuki to get out of his HeroicBSOD later. Aphrodi gets injured during Raimon's match against Chaos, but Fubuki visits him in the hospital and thanks him for his help.]]
* Gouenji confronts Fubuki near the end of Aliea Arc at the riverbank and [[spoiler: he (somewhat) comforts him when Fubuki is frightened by the thunder but afterwards leaves him alone.]] He later tries to make Fubuki understand, much like [[spoiler: Aphrodi]] did [[spoiler: during the match he hits Fubuki with a soccer ball and tells him that he doesn't have to feel alone if he knows how to trust and rely on his teammates]] a few times. [[spoiler: They also come up with the new hissatsu wazza Crossfire instantly in the final game against Genesis after they combine their power to stop a shot, being a powerful combo in the games.]]

!! ''Inazuma Eleven GO''
* There is Tsurugi's "interest" in Tenma which starts out as FoeYay [[spoiler:until he makes a HeelFaceTurn]]. After which Tsurugi can almost always be seen next to and of near Tenma and he generally cares about him to the point where he [[spoiler:helps Tenma release his [[SuperMode keshin]] and is very satisfied with the results. Tsurugi also chose Tenma as his partner in the Fire Tornado Double Drive hissatsu, as he believed Tenma was the one to change him.]]
** Not to mention Tenma ''loves'' glomping Tsurugi.
** Since Tenma and Tsurugi are the {{Expy}} of Endou and Gouenji, everything that they do altogether in the same frame altogether is also a shipping fuel.
** In the Holy Road finals, [[spoiler:Tsurugi [[FirstNameBasis stops referring to him as "Matsukaze"]] in the decisive shoot]].
** The last parts of ''GO Galaxy'' had this all over, what with Tsurugi [[spoiler: pulling off a temporary FaceHeelTurn,]] pushing Tenma to more desperate lengths to get Tsurugi back.
* Also there is Taiyou and Tenma [[spoiler:which doubles as FoeYay only without the animosity]]. Taiyou had been interested in Tenma ever since he [[LoveAtFirstSight first saw]] Raimon's match on TV. It was implied he and Tenma were similar to each other in their love for soccer. [[spoiler:Tenma had a HeroicBSOD after he realized [[IllBoy Taiyou]] was [[ICanStillFight risking his own life]] to play against Raimon.]] After the match against Arakumo, [[spoiler: Tenma and Taiyou hold hands, promising to each other that they'll play together again someday]].
** In the game, there was a scene [[spoiler: where Tenma saves Taiyou, who collapsed and fainted on the sidewalk]] and later at the hospital, Taiyou gives encouraging words to Tenma.
** In the anime when they [[CrashIntoHello first]] [[SuggestiveCollision meet]].
** KMC (one of the singers for the opening themes of the series) has even written a song dedicated to their relationship titled "Me and You and the Wind and the Sun".
* [[HeterosexualLifePartners Shindou and Kirino,]] they are almost always [[ThoseTwoGuys together]] and Kirino is always concerned about Shindou's well being [[spoiler:especially after Shindou is hospitalized.]]
** Nearly everything Kirino says in the game is related to Shindou in some way. This is not an exaggeration.
* Kirino and Kariya, after they get over the FoeYay. They seem to cooperate quite nicely.
** In ''Chrono Stone'' [[spoiler:Kariya easily reads Kirino's mind on how he's jealous of Shindou's strength]]. He later [[spoiler:gives up his seat for France to Kirino (when Daisuke wouldn't normally change his mind) by claiming he had a stomachache]].
* Hayami and Hamano, who hang out often and also balance each other out in personality. The one running shop even found it odd when one afternoon she saw Hayami fishing but not with Hamano.
** Also at one point Hamano slaps Hayami on the butt, which is not something you would expect from HeterosexualLifePartners .
* The word-for-word intent of Mahoro when he avoided Amagi all those years ago: [[spoiler:he wanted to protect the smile of his first friend]].
** When Amagi was troubled about not knowing anything, Kageyama Hikaru comes up to support him and continues to be concerned about his senpai during the Genei match.
** Hikaru continues to comfort him in the rain when he is surprised to see that Mahoro is the captain of Gen'ei [[spoiler:and completely different then the childhood friend he remembers]] and holds an umbrella over him and helps him find a way to excert his pent up stress ([=AKA=] screaming) and it was adorable.
* Tenma and Shinsuke became best friends so quickly you'd think they've known each other their whole lives.
* Yukimura's reaction when he thought Fubuki betrayed him makes it look like he has [[HotForTeacher a crush on his coach]].
* Minamisawa and Hyoudou. They often [[ThoseTwoGuys appear together as a pair]].
* Kurama and Minamisawa, although this is more of a case of [[FanPreferredCouple what the fans want]] as they don't have much interaction in the anime (more in the game, however).
* Tenma and Fei in Chrono Stone is oozing with this particularly in the last arc of the show.
** What's interesting to note in here is that one of the new hissatsus Tenma made when he played with Fei for the first time is called [[HeartbeatSoundtrack Aggresive Beat]].
