* While ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' fandom has a tendency to pair off all the characters, Marco gets it more than any other. I've seen him paired with every single Animorph plus some side characters. (And if Ax is paired with anyone at all, it's generally Marco. Unless it's Tobias, which is ''{{squick}}'', for [[IncestIsRelative several]] [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction reasons]].)
* Edmund Pevensie, from the ''ChroniclesOfNarnia'', is the EnsembleDarkhorse from all the protagonists and also the TroubledButCute {{Lancer}}, with a [[RavenHairIvorySkin pale skinned - dark hair]] complexion, hence he is shipped with practically ''[[LauncherOfAThousandShips everyone]]'', plus various made-up fan characters. By the way, the characters he is probably most shipped with are [[BrotherSisterIncest Lucy]] and [[HoYay Peter]]. [[{{Squick}} Yeah]].
** Caspian/Susan, Caspian/Lucy, Caspian/Peter, Caspian/Edmund...
* Daenerys Targaryen fills this role in ''ASongOfIceAndFire''. Common pairings include [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight Jon/Dany]], [[BrotherSisterIncest Viserys/Dany]], [[UnequalPairing Drogo/Dany]], [[BodyguardCrush Daario/Dany, Jorah/Dany]], [[CrackPairing Tyrion/Dany]], [[OT3 Dany/Jon/Tyrion]], [[IncestIsRelative Dany/Aegon]] and [[LesYay Dany/any-of-her-handmaidens]]. To be fair, most of those have basis in canon. Viserys feels Dany up at least once, and their family has a good old tradition of incest, while one of the handmaids (Irri) takes it upon herself to [[spoiler:sexually service Dany when she's having a restless night]]. There are several foreshadows (Valyrian polygamy and the three-headed dragon) indicating that Dany could take two husbands in the future (although and she would find Tyrion completely repulsive). As for Khal Drogo, [[HappilyMarried well...]]
** Her nephew Aegon comes in a close second, with possible matches including Dany, Sansa, Arianne Martell, Margaery Tyrell, or even Arya. As a young man with a solid claim to the Iron Throne, Aegon is easily Westeros' most eligible bachelor.
** Sansa Stark seems to be one of the most commonly shipped, despite being no older than thirteen at the end of the last book. The most popular ship is [[BodyguardCrush Sansa/Sandor]], but there's also [[LoveFatherLoveSon Sansa/Petyr]], [[ArrangedMarriage Sansa/Tyrion]], [[LesYay Sansa/Margaery]], [[CrackPairing Sansa/Jaime]], [[IncestIsRelative Sansa/Jon]], [[NotBloodSiblings Sansa/Theon]] etc.
** Roose Bolton seems on his way to becoming this in the LJ and Tumblr communities.
* Hermione Granger from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' has been paired with characters of every [[MayDecemberRomance age]], [[DracoInLeatherPants allegiance]], [[LesYay gender]], and [[CrossoverShip other realities and worlds]].
** Thanks to carrying a Time Turner around for a year, there are even stories where Hermione is shipped with temporally displaced copies of herself!
** Harry is frequently given a [[OneTrueThreesome harem]], while most girls at Hogwarts seem to be HotForTeacher when it comes to Snape...and Bellatrix will fuck AnythingThatMoves, even her own sister or nephew!
** Speaking of Harry, Harry has also been shipped with almost every character imaginable, especially [[DracoInLeatherPants Draco Malfoy]], [[HoYay Snape]], and [[HoYay Cedric]].
*** FanFiction wise, he has been paired with any named character (even those he never met) or [[{{Squick}} any creature]] you can imagine, and of course, a fair amount of [[OriginalCharacter fanmade stuff]]. There is also a susprising amount of pairings that use [[{{Rule63}} Harry as a girl]]. And a there is CrossoverShip too, most of them are with {{Naruto}} or {{Twilight}} characters.
** The Giant Squid is a joking example--any discussion of {{Crack Pairing}}s is bound to have somebody claim they ship Squid/the first character that comes into their head.
** Luna Lovegood has been paired with pretty much everyone (usually as a BetaCouple though). This is most likely because her CloudCuckoolander status may suggest certain [[BiTheWay flexibility]].
** Draco Malfoy has been shipped with anyone that is mention he has had eye contact with in the series.
* Bella Swan from ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' is a huge example of this. There are pairings of her with practically every character, including those of lesser importance.
** And the crossover ones, of course.
** There's even [[CargoShip Bella/Tyler's Van]]
* Percy Jackson from ''PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' has been shipped with every character in his titular series, including very minor characters. Especially since WordOfGod says that even though demigods' parents may be related, demigods themselves, even if they share the same divine parent, [[IncestIsRelative can fall in love and have kids]] [[IncestYayShipping with no issues]].
** Luke Castellan is like this as well. He's often nicknamed the [[ReallyGetsAround fandom bicycle.]]
** In the sequel series TheHeroesOfOlympus, Leo, the EnsembleDarkhorse, is even more extreme. Being the only character without a LoveInterest in-universe makes him in the fanfic available to every character mentioned.
* [[NobleDemon Crowley]] from ''Literature/GoodOmens'' fandom along with the FanPreferredCouple [[{{OTP}} Aziraphale/Crowley]] he is also shipped with [[FoeYay Hastur]], [[CrackPairing Pollution, adult Adam Young, the angel Gabriel]], [[CargoShip his Bentley]], and in CrossoverShip [[ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}} John Constantine]], Franchise/JamesBond, Franchise/HarryPotter, [[{{Squick}} Olympia Black]]...and anyone else. Being mistaken for an [[HornyDevils incubus]] seems to be a [[FandomSpecificPlot common plot thread]]. {{Lampshaded}} in one fic [[http://library.good-omens.com/viewstory.php?sid=179&chapter=1 ?Do I look like a sodding *** toy to you??]] DontAnswerThat.
* Although everyone in ''Literature/WarriorCats'' has had this to a certain degree, Firestar probably takes the cake. He has been paired with Sandstorm, Spottedleaf, Cinderpelt, Tigerstar, Scourge, Graystripe, Mistyfoot, Bluestar, Silverstream, Ashfur, Echosong, Leafstar, Cinderheart, Morningflower, Onestar, Blackstar, Brackenfur, and a ''[[CompanionCube stick]]'' ([[CargoShip though most of the fandom seems to think the stick is a better match for]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jayfeather]]). This list is riddled with HoYay, FoeYay, and [[CrackPairing crackships]].
** ...and ''three'' that are actually canon.
** His grandson Lionblaze is the same. He's been shipped with Heathertail, Cinderheart (both canon), Icecloud, Hazeltail, Honeyfern (who already has a canon mate), Twist, Sedgewhisker, and Whitewing.
* The ''LeftBehind'' {{hatedom}}, in their exquisite BileFascination, has chosen [[TheAntichrist Nicolae Carpathia]] for this role. This comes most directly from Fred Clark's famous weekly blog detailing just how bad these books are, the comments section for which has officially branded Carpathia a MemeticSexGod who has canon chemistry with EVERYONE -- and they've set out to prove it too!
* [[LordoftheRings Frodo Baggins]]. Especially in the wake of the 2001-3 films, Frodo got paired with every conceivable hobbit, many big strong Men, and an Elf from time to time. Oh, and Gollum. Most of this was generated by women who found Elijah Wood's portrayal seriously attractive. Then again, he is the protagonist.
** And Legolas, oh so much. Because he is pretty and an elf, and Fan-Girl-Authors really like those things. Legolas/Aragorn, Legolas/Every male elf (including his father Thranduil), Legolas/Gimli, Legolas/Faramir, Legolas/Most of the self-insert characters, Legolas/Sauron, Legolas/Gandalf, and so on and so forth.
* The ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' tends to have at least one per era.
** In the prequel era, Anakin's SingleTargetSexuality doesn't stop all the Anakin/Obi-Wan, [[{{lolicon}} Anakin/Ahsoka]], Anakin/anybody who's not Padmé fics.To say nothing of [[NoYay Anakin/Palpatine...]]
** Obi-Wan gets a bit of this as well, despite being a CelibateHero in canon. Anakin/Obi-Wan, Obi-Wan/Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan/Padme, [[Literature/JediApprentice Obi-Wan/Siri]][[labelnote:*]]That one's eventually established as a JustFriends relationship, with the pair admitting their feelings as Siri lies dying.[[/labelnote]], [[TheCloneWars Obi-Wan/Satine]], [[ComicBook/{{Republic}} Obi-Wan/Vos]] and [[CloneWarsGambit Obi-Wan/Bail]] are all popular pairings.
** In the Rebellion and New Republic eras, it's Luke. It would be Han (because he's sexy), but everyone likes the Han/Leia ship too much. This doesn't stop Luke/Han slash, though it's overshadowed in the fandom by Anakin/Obi-Wan.
** In the Literature/NewJediOrder era, it's Jacen and Jaina. Not together. Usually. (They're also sometimes paired, or even {{OT3}}, with [[DeadGuyJunior Anakin]].) But Jacen and Jaina are paired with anybody who isn't related to them.
** In the ''ComicBook/{{Legacy}} era, Cade. He'll do AnythingThatMoves, so...
** As the ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce'' / ''Literature/FateOfTheJedi'' era goes through, it's turning into Ben. Oh, so much.
** Quinlan Vos is this in the ''ComicBook/{{Republic}}'' comics (though usually he's shipped with Mace, Obi-Wan or Aayla).
* The GONE series by Michael Grant has a huge ensemble cast, but for the most part it's averted this trope by the main characters only tending to have one canon love interest...And then there was Lana Arwen Lazar. She's been paired with him (and fanned with by big groups too);
** Sanjit, her official boyfriend and a manic pixie dream boy whose only significance to the plot is "fixing" her.
** Quinn, with who she has many a UST moment with and there's still loads of sexual attraction between the two.
** Cookie, who she used her power to heal in the first book and now he literally only lives to serve her. (kinky).
** She's been shipped with the gaiaphage, and unfortunately, due to their disturbing "bonding time" spent together in the first two books, it can be considered canon.
** She was even paired with Edilio in the first book, although he came out as gay in FEAR, which made Lana...A beard?
** Seriously, the only other character with multiple ships is Brianna, who has two canon ships (with Computer Jack and Dekka), although some argue Dekka doesn't count seeing as it's a one sided crush.
* MaximumRide has Iggy, who in fanfiction (at least, the fanfiction this troper has seen) has been paired with every member of the Flock (yes, even with 6-year-old Angel), Dylan, and Maya. And that's not even mentioning the sheer amount of MarySues and OCs the fandom comes up with. [[CrossoverShipping Or even the crossovers...]]
