* EVERYONE in ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' has been a LauncherOfAThousandShips at some point. EVERYONE. It helps given ''Kingdom Hearts''' universe where any crossover has at least the slightest bit of plausibility.
** Axel is the fandom bicycle: everybody gets a ride!
** And then there's Demyx. [[http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/negima_hyuuga/Demyx_pairings___KH2_comic_by_Keysh.jpg He's the Organization's bitch.]]
** Roxas get the most hetero pairings out of everyone, especially with Namine, Xion, Olette, and Kairi. Then there's the HoYay...
** Throughout the internet, there have been pairings for almost every combination possible between the members of Organization XIII sans Lexaeus/Saix, making 90 pairings.
** It's so extreme and ridiculous, that there are various "Random Pairing Generators" arount the Internet. Prince Charming X Sephiroth? Mulan x Larxenne? Sure, why not?
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'': Because the game has no OfficialCouple, Bartz gets shipped with everyone and everyone gets shipped with Bartz. The most popular seems to be Bartz/Faris, but really, he does get shipped with ''everyone.'' Naturally, ''Dissidia'' has added pairings.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' fans can throw Edgar together with anyone and everyone despite the fact that the poor guy couldn't get a date in-game, though he ''does'' have the best pick-up line in video game history.
** In the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' fandom, you've got Cloud, Tifa, Sephiroth and Vincent. If one adds in the endless flood of {{Relationship Sue}}s, a thousand ships is a very lowball estimate of Sephiroth and Vincent's fleets.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', Squall seems to be pretty paired with everyone [[YaoiFangirl who isn't]] [[DieForOurShip Rinoa]]. It's not like the game's entire plot revolves around them falling in love with each other or anything.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', we have Lightning. Two major reasons for this are the fact that she has no canon love interest, and the game has a not-inconsiderable amount of [[HoYay Les Yay]] between her and [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Fang]]. Then there's her "motherly" relationship with [[{{Shotacon}} Hope]]. If you want to go into {{Crossover Ship}}s, there's [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV Noctis]], and being a DistaffCounterpart of Cloud Strife you can pair her up with him or any of his love interests.
*** She's also paired with the other party members quite often. Snow X Lightning usually interprets their clashing personalities and Lightning's initial hostility as BelligerentSexualTension and takes it from there. Some Sahz X Lightning pair start with them talking about their parental experiences. Oh, and there is some Lightning X Vanille too. [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight She barely talks to Vanille ingame]]. Her crossover pairings more than doubled after DissidiaFinalFantasy.
** ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'':
*** It has [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Terra]], [[TheSmurfettePrinciple the only default female hero in the group]], as its biggest LauncherOfAThousandShips.
*** Following somewhat close behind her, there's [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Squall]], who for some reason seems to be paired a lot with several characters.
*** And in Japanese fandom, the one who stands head and shoulders above ALL of them is [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyII Firion]], for some inexplicable reason. He is paired with ''everyone''. It's the Rose. That rose has been in the hands of at least nine characters throughout the course of the two games. In fanshipping land this automatically means he is paired with everyone who has obtained it. People even ship him with Aerith for their mutual love of flowers, even though the two have never canonically met! However perhaps the only pairing that has any real basis in the events of the games is Lightning, due to their undeniably [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiBng6ju4mQ&playnext=1&list=PLE2A507B0C217B42F cute scene in the reports]] [[spoiler:(turns out he just wants that pesky flower back but still who wants to crush a shipper's dreams!)]]
*** Lightning's paired with a fair amount of men in ''Dissidia''[='s=] sequel (technically prequel), too. Mainly, Kain Highwind, Firion, and the Warrior of Light.
* ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' is still a new fandom, but already Neku's being paired with everyone. ''Minamimoto''/Neku? Where'd that come from?
** It came from [[ShipperOnDeck Josh]].
-->"Think he's got a thing for you, Neku? (...) Oh, please! The way he follows you around?"
** Minamimoto himself is paired with everyone. Neku, Beat, Konishi, Megumi, Joshua...''Especially'' [[AmbiguouslyGay Joshua]].
*** Every''one''? [[CargoShip MinamimotoxMicrophone]] is a popular pairing... unsurprisingly.
---->'''Minamimoto:''' Why, hello there! This mic is zetta sexy!
**** Also calculators and math books.
** Joshua too. Although Neku is by ''far'' his most popular option, he regularly gets shipped with Hanekoma, Minamimoto, Kitaniji, and [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight Rhyme]]. Shiki and Beat are rarer but also exist, and he's a favorite for crossover ships.
* [[CanonName Yu Narukami]] of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' has been paired with every conceivable cast member of the series at one point or another.
** As was his predecessor in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', [[FanNickname Minato Arisato]] (and his DistaffCounterpart, Hamuko).
** Somewhat justified since both games included building relationships as a major part of gameplay, both games do allow for romantic developments with characters of the opposite sex[[note]]In ''4'', prior to the UpdatedReRelease, Yu could even get something of a harem going on, while the UpdatedReRelease for ''3'' added the option to play as a female protagonist who could get it on with all the boys[[/note]], and ''4'' includes a male ally strongly implied to be at least bisexual.
* ''RuneFactory 2'' has an ''official'' LauncherOfAThousandShips candidate in the form of Yue. When the main character marries a girl who was destined for another guy, that guy will automatically end up with Yue.
* Lloyd Irving from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''. Seriously, he's paired with everyone in the game, although he's frequently shipped [[ChildhoodFriendRomance with Colette]], [[FanPreferredCouple and Sheena]]. There are many who pair him with Raine or Presea. [[HoYay Maybe even Zelos]]. Or even [[FoeYay paired with Yggdrasill]].
** He has been paired with ''his own father''. Granted it's usually before TheReveal, but some even have the relationship continue ''afterward.''
** Because of the MultipleEndings, Lloyd is a ''canonical'' Launcher of a Thousand Ships.
*** It even continues in the sequel! ''Dawn of the New World'' confirms that Lloyd scores with whoever you want him to.
* [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld Emil]] seems to be this, too--he's been paired with a good chunk of the new cast [[spoiler:including [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Ratatosk]] and Aster (who Ratatosk killed about ''a year and a half before Emil even came into existence''.)]] Plus several of the original cast.
* As far as ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' goes, Luke/Everyone might as well be canon. ... Well, everyone important. At the very least you cannot deny that Luke/[[FiveManBand The Party]] (or [[FiveManBand The Party]]/Luke, as it is...) is very nearly canon.
** Guy gets this treatment too.
** Jade also has his fair share.
* If you are a ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' character, the fandom has decreed that you want to have sex with [[MemeticSexGod Yuri]] [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Lowell]]. Period. He's probably most often shipped with [[HoYay Flynn]], but Estelle and Judith aren't far behind...and then there are people who ship him with Raven or Duke or Rita or even Ioder, and, appropriately enough given the above, Yuri/Luke is a popular crossover pairing.
* Another canon LauncherOfAThousandShips is Vayne of ''ManaKhemiaAlchemistsOfAlRevis'', who has an [[MultipleEndings ending]] with each of the other party members. The ones that aren't clearly romantic are laden with subtext.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' has Roy. He has 6 possible wives, subtext with two girls he can't support, and can support with 4 other males, one of which is his milk brother (or male maid), and is obviously a target for Ho Yay/Bodyguard Crush. AND he was playable in Smash Bros. Melee...
** Roy's got some brutal competition for the "Pimp Lord of ''Fire Emblem''" from Celice in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy]]''--Celice can take to his side one of 15 possible wives (7 female children and 7 replacements, and then [[BrotherSisterIncest Yuria]]).
** Lyndis from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem 7]]'' already has 4 ''canon'' love interests (5 if you count [[LesYay Florina]] as one), Sain and Wil are considered extremely plausible, Karel/Lyn and Lyn/Ninian have niche followings in the fandom, and one author even managed to pair her with ''Renault'' and make it plausible. There's the infamous [[MarySue Lyn/Tactician]] fics.
*** We can probably just go ahead and comment that most of the cast is canonically a LauncherOfAThousandShips, and the fandom just goes ahead and takes this {{up to eleven}}.
** My Unit (or Chris) in the remake of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Mystery of the Emblem]]'' is an '''in-universe''' Launcher, capable of supporting with ''the entire cast of the game''. They don't have as many potential love interests as Roy or Celice, though; male MU has 3, and female MU has 5.
** The My Unit (or Avatar as s/he's called in the west) from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' takes this one step further. S/he can marry '''any''' player character (including the Paralogue characters [[spoiler:[[TheCaligula Gangrel]], [[TheConqueror Walhart]], [[EvilSorcerer Aversa]], Emmeryn, and Ike's descendant Priam]] and the [[TimeTravelRomance Child characters]] like [[spoiler:Lucina, Nah, or Yarne]]... and yes, s/he can have a kid with them), provided they're of the opposite gender.
*** Heck, the only ''Awakening'' characters this ''isn't'' canon for are ones like Say'ri, Tiki, Anna and the SpotPass characters. And even that doesn't stop fans from coming up with their own fanon ships.
** Ike in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius''. On the canon side? ShipTease with Princess Elincia, HoYay with Soren and another GayOption with Ranulf plus Marcia constantly calling him "handsome." And of course, Aimee's relentless chasing of him. The fans, however, added Mia, Geoffrey, Zelgius, Boyd, Tibarn, [[FoeYay Shinon]], Titania, [[HeroWorshipper Sothe]] and even [[PhysicalGod Yune]]. [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros "We Like Ike"]] indeed...
* [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]] is easily the video game town bicycle; he's paired with everyone from the eponymous Princess Zelda to... well, to the Shinto goddess Amaterasu as seen in ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', given that both were wolves recently. (If there were a Shinto Hell, whoever first did that would be going there. Nor is this the only strange ship involving Amaterasu, in [[CrossoverShip or out]] of ''Okami'' itself.) Link gains a new harem within each big game. [[http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs8/i/2005/322/d/3/Link__s_Harem_by_Scribbles02.png Ocarina of Time Harem,]] [[http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs41/i/2009/011/1/8/Links_Harem_by_Slush_A.jpg Wind Waker Harem,]] [[http://th06.deviantart.net/fs38/300W/i/2008/366/b/8/Twilight_Girls_by_justmeandmypencil.jpg Twilight Princess Harem,]] and much much more!
* LeagueOfLegends has over [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters 100 playable characters]] so it has thousands of ships by itself but two characters deserve mention, [[{{Adorkable}} Ezreal]] and [[MagicalGirl Lux]]. Despite Ezreal/Lux being [[ShipTease pseudo-canon]], these two get paired with too many different characters, friends, enemies, people they never talked, creatures...
* In ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'', ''everyone'' is a Launcher of a Thousand Ships.
** And then the '''Lighthouses''' are jokingly considered as such in both the phrase's literal and other metaphorical sense, thanks to the fact that more than a half of the non-crack pairings (and a few crack ones) get their biggest ShipTease in them.
*** And God said: "LET THERE BE [[VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn DARK DAWN]]!!!"
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' fan fiction's poster girl is Lady Jaina Proudmoore by far. She's often shipped with Arthas (pre- and post-undeath), Warchief Thrall (a pairing once characterized on the official Blizzard [=WoW=] General Discussion Forum as "Bow-Chikca-Lok'Tar"), a triangle between the three (and I'm sure a [[OT3 ménage ŕ trois]] has been done at least once)...every fan fic writer who writes about his own [=PCs=] will have them meet Jaina at some point.
** Jaina/Arthas (pre-undeath) actually ''is'' canon: they used to date when they were both teenagers.
*** And yes, they did sleep together. They would have married too, if not Arthas decided they both should finish their studies first. And when they were done with that, there was that whole undeath plague...
** Kael'thas Sunstrider! He canonically had a crush on her (although it was apparently unrequited).
*** Jaina ''was'' heiress to the throne of Kul Tiras before the fall of Lordaeron, and Arthas and Kael'thas were both crown princes of their respective allied kingdoms. Given how royalty is often married off to allied royalty, its not surprising that she'd have been socially introduced to every male heir in her age group from every ally Kul Tiras had.
** Thrall and Sylvanas fit this trope for Horde aficionados.
** Outside of canon characters, elves in general seem to fill this role. ''Especially'' [[{{Bishonen}} blood elves]].
** And as of Patch 5.1 and the ''Tides of War'' tie-in novel, Jaina is ''canonically'' hooked up with Kalecgos, who is literally a ''dragon''.
* [[{{Miko}} Reimu]] and [[BlackMagicianGirl Marisa]] from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' games tend to have [[http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Relationshipping#Main_Character_Harems their own mini-harems]], most of their pairing options being {{youkai}}s [[DefeatMeansFriendship they've defeated in previous battles]].
** [[MarionetteMaster Alice Margatroid]] is also subject to almost as much pairing-off as Marisa. There's a notable fanartist who paired the dollmaker off to [[http://gelbooru.com/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=568241 nearly]] ''[[http://moe.imouto.org/post/show/64468 everyone]]'', and did fanart of ''[[http://gelbooru.com/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=396427 herself]]'' {{glomp}}ing Alice!
** Rinnosuke Morichika, being TheOneGuy, seems to get this treatment by default unless he's being portrayed as the MemeticMolester. If you scroll down [[http://dic.pixiv.net/a/%E6%A3%AE%E8%BF%91%E9%9C%96%E4%B9%8B%E5%8A%A9 this page]], you will see a chart that breaks down his ships with [[MemeticSexGod every character]] in the series by source material.
** Though specially Marisa, with more than seven ''frequent'' pairings, is who stands out in this trope. In some works to MemeticSexGod and [[{{Badass}} GAR]] [[http://genso.ws/post?tags=cho_marisa levels.]]
** Yuuka has quite a few ships too.
* ''Franchise/MetalGear'''s Snake tends to be paired up with almost everyone in the series, and outside of it - even before his appearance in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]''. It really doesn't help that he's the Prince of the EvenTheGuysWantHim trope ([[MemeticSexGod Big Boss]] being the king).
** In the ''[=MGS=]'' fandom itself, Otacon's probably earned this. He's been paired with Snake, Mei Ling, Raiden, Liquid, Grey Fox, Big Boss, Mantis, and [[Fanfic/{{Stray}} young Ocelot]], time paradoxes and plausibility be damned.
* Sonic and Tails in the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series go with everyone... even though they show the ''least'' romantic interest of the entire cast.
** [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Shadow]]. Although he's more commonly shipped with Sonic, Rouge and Amy (and occasionally Maria), he has gotten shipped with [[CrackPairing plenty of characters you wouldn't expect]].
** Really, almost ''everyone'' has been paired with everyone else in Sonic, regardless of gender, [[MayDecemberRomance age]], or [[InterspeciesRomance species]].
* ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'': Geo goes with everyone, mostly because the game and anime each drop plenty of scenes for him that could be interpreted as {{ship tease}}s - with several different characters. LoveTriangle with [[BettyAndVeronica Luna and Sonia]], HoYay with Pat and Ace, FoeYay with Solo and Jack.(And perhap maybe with "imagination"!)
* [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]] gets paired up with everybody, including [[ScrewYourself himself]]. There's the friendly neighborhood {{memetic molester}}s Gant and Gourdy (that's the [[TheCatfish Lake Monster]] in case you're wondering).
** Phoenix isn't alone. As one fan put it, "If it's breathing and in the ''Gyakuten'' series, it'll get shipped with [[StoicWoobie Edgeworth]]. [[MrFanservice It's inevitable]]."
** Actually, [[CargoShip it's gotten to the point where the quote should be,]] "If it exists in the ''Gyakuten'' universe, it will be shipped. [[CrackPairing No exceptions.]]"
** Apollo's working his way up to reaching his mentor's status.
*** Forget "working his way up," Apollo's sailed past the stars with the release of Dual Destinies in Japan.
** And of course, how could we forget the time ''Detective Gumshoe's trenchcoat x Detective Badd's trenchcoat was shipped?''
* Rudy Roughnight from ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 1}}''. In addition to all the females he gets paired with, ''{{Wild ARMs}}'' shippers also put him together with Jack and, [[CrackPairing for some reason]], Zed. This even gets referenced in ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 5}}'', where the main ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 1}}'' related sidequest has Dean resolving which one amongst [[{{Tsundere}} Jane]], [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Cecilia]], and [[ShrinkingViolet Mariel]] does Rudy eventually end up with.
* ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' has a rather small shipping base, in that most of its characters are only commonly shipped in one or two pairings each... the second pairing usually being with [[LittleMissSnarker Etna.]] Seriously, Etna gets paired with ''everybody'', including but not limited to: [[BelligerentSexualTension Laharl]], [[HoYay Flonne]], [[MayDecemberRomance Mid-Boss]], [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale Adell]], [[GirlOnGirlIsHot Rozalin]], [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight Axel]]... even ''[[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins the Prinnies.]]''
** ''Especially'' the Prinnies, given the release of [[VideoGame/PrinnyCanIReallyBeTheHero a certain game.]]
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' - The poor Scout doesn't get a break when paired up with any of the other classes, not even [[ScrewYourself his own]]. There's also the Pyro, who [[AmbiguousGender may be female]]. The Medic (usually a MemeticMolester) occasionally gets this kind of characterization due to his status as a Support class and the fact that he racks up points the fastest via assisting other classes, as well as the fact that his gameplay role is that of the WhiteMage and therefore {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s designate him as the de facto {{Uke}} when Scout's not filling that role.
* Poor, poor [[VideoGame/MegaMan Splash Woman]]. It doesn't help that she's one of the only two lady bots in a cast nearing 100.
** Looking at the fan art, Metal Man gets this treatment too.
** In general, ANY Robot Master, including the Rockman Killers and the Stardroids. Each of them have launched enough ships to make a tangled love web. Perhaps the most common: little Mega Man himself!
** Like their [[Main/RoboFamily brother]], Roll and Protoman also have launched their own fleets. Protoman is especially popular judging by the sheer volume of fan art and fiction that exists. In Roll's case, she's gets paired often so often for the [[Main/SmurfettePrinciple same reason]] Splash Woman does.
* [[VideoGame/HeavyRain Norman Jayden]], the only one of the four heroes without a canonical love interest, is consequentially paired with everyone in the game, from [[HoYay Ethan Mars]] to [[FoeYay Carter Blake]].
* Leon Kennedy, of ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' is a classical Type A, sometimes even to the point of EvenTheGuysWantHim among players. His canon love interest is Ada (and to a lesser extent, Angela, who appeared once and then was PutOnABus), but he's also regularly paired with Ashley, Claire, Jill, Steve, Chris, Wesker, Luis, Krauser, Hunnigan, Kevin, Manuela, Buddy, Helena, Sherry, and Mike the Helicopter Guy. In addition to the large amounts of zombie porn that affect all characters within the fandom and countless self-inserts. Admittedly, the fact that he almost always ends up with a female character for a partner and the fact that at least two of them seem to have crushes on him does not help, nor does his (failed) attempt to get Hunnigan's number.
** Claire Redfield, however, falls quite neatly under Type B as the "kickass everygirl" who has no special training and a kind heart, but still keeps up with the rest of the characters. Her ships includes Steve, Leon, Ada, Sherry, Alfred, Wesker, Jill, Rebecca, [[spoiler:Carla]], and her brother Chris, though many crack pairings exist for whatever character the author deems most attractive.
* As mentioned above in the discussion on Link, ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'''s Amaterasu gets shipped with far, far more characters than a non-talking wolf should ever be. Most of these rely on Ammy having a human form that we never see.
* This happened to Dawn and Lyra from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. ''Especially'' [[{{Moe}} Lyra]]. The most popular characters to pair Lyra with (in Japan, at least) are [[TheRival Silver]], [[MysteriousProtector Lance]], and ''[[MasterOfDisguise PETREL]]''. These are just the ''popular'' ones.
** In the west (and East at that), Morty and [[PsychoForHire Proton]] are also often shipped with her.
*** Silver himself is a shipping magnet, too, especially when you factor in ''[[Manga/PokemonSpecial Special]]''.
** With ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', we have the male protagonist Hilbert (more commonly referred to as Touya or Black), who's being paired with practically every female in the game.
*** [[MostFanficWritersAreGirls Only]] [[BoysLove females?]]
** N.
** Red gets shipped with everyone, Pokemon and people outside the Kanto-Johto games included.
** Karen, final Johto Elite Four member, got this treatment, mostly because of being the MsFanservice of the region's [=E4=]. She's been shipped with: [[LargeHam Sidney]], [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Lance]], [[PsychicPowers Will]] and [[TallDarkAndHandsome Grimsley]].
** In-game, a lot of players ship [[{{Shapeshifter}} Ditto]] with everyone, due to its ability to [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction mate with (almost) any Pokémon]] and produce eggs.
*** There's a reason a why a lot of players name their Ditto "pimp".
* Haseo of ''[[VideoGame/DotHackGU .hack//G.U.]]'', poor guy, virtually has a harbor reserved for him. From Atoli to Shino to Ovan to Endrance to Skeith to even the Grunties, he's been stuck with EVERYONE. Find someone that he HASN'T been shipped with.
** Like Lloyd in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', Haseo is an actual canon launcher, since at the end of the third game, you can choose to "marry" ([[ItMakesSenseInContext the characters are playing an an MMORPG]]) any party member, regardless of gender or even age. When trying to do it with a man, usually it leads to a "best buddy" scene rather than marriage, but there are a few exceptions like [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Endrance]] or even [[spoiler:Azure Kite]] who want a little more than being friends...
* For some obscure reason, ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' Sun Shang Xiang is fair game with everyone in Wu [[BrotherSisterIncest including her brothers]], half the folks in Shu, and ''[[CrackPairing Sima Yi]]'' if you look hard enough. Although she may have to compete with her husband Liu Bei, honored with the [[http://community.livejournal.com/capslock_koei/profile Capslock_Koei]] tag "Shu mourns the loss of its bicycle." Bei's epic {{shiptease}}ry is [[Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms completely historical]].
* Chun-Li from the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series is also a fairly infamous case of this as well as she has been paired with Charlie, Ryu, Ken, and Guile (and to a lesser extent [[LesYay Cammy]]).
** Ryu gets his share, too, despite his [[ChasteHero lack of interest]] in love life, being paired with Chun-Li, Cammy, Sakura, Juri Han, Rose, Ibuki (?), Makoto (??), Ken ([[HoYay oh boy]])... and [[CrackPairing Bison]]? And maybe [[FoeYay Sagat]], that is, if he's not busy with his [[MemeticMutation cornflakes]].
*** Juri Han, being the [[DepravedBisexual depraved]] [[PsychoLesbian psycho]] that she is, gets this treatment too. It doesn't help that Juri [[MemeticMolester might be trying to make it canon from her side]] ([[FetishFuelStationAttendant the fans]] [[EvilIsSexy don't seem]] [[MemeticSexGod to mind]]).
*** Add [[VideoGame/FinalFight Guy]] to that list. While it's been established that Guy already has a fiancee, Rena (the DamselInDistress of ''Final Fight 2''), he has (to date) ''three'' additional partners according to the fandom. The first is Maki, Rena's younger sister who displays a very curious {{Tsundere}}-like complex towards her brother-in-law [[note]]this [[FoeYay "Rival Yay"]] is instead likely her desire to beat Guy and become the 40th Bushin Master; [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou if she doesn't, someone else could come up and steal the chance to do so away from her]][[/note]]. ''Super Street Fighter IV'' then added [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Ibuki]] and [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Rose]]. Whereas the former is more centered around the basis that [[ThemePairing both characters are]] {{ninja}}s, the latter is pretty damn close to a RelationshipWritingFumble. Most fans who have seen Guy's [[FightingYourFriend Rival Battle]] and [[ShipTease both his and Rose's ending cutscenes]] in ''SSFIV'' [[ShippingGoggles have been subsequently unable to see them as anything other than]] lovers or (at the very least) two very, ''very'' [[TrueCompanions close friends]] with a lot of [[UnresolvedSexualTension UST]]. Guy/Rose is shaping up to be a FanPreferredCouple.
* Ellis from ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' ends up with everyone. Although 90% of the time it's with [[YaoiFangirl Nick]], you can find him with his canon love interest Zoey, teammate Rochelle, [[{{Squick}} Coach]], the Hunter, the Witch, the Smoker and his friends that don't even appear in the game like Keith. Ellis will also usually be the target of any fanfic writer's OriginalCharacter.
* Dante of ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' fame gets this, mainly due to his status as an ActionHero. Not only is he paired with his {{implied love interest}}s from the first three games (i.e. [[FreudWasRight Trish]], [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench Lucia]], and [[BelligerentSexualTension Lady]]), but {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s just love to pair him up with [[CainAndAbel Vergil]] (''[[{{Twincest}} his own brother]]''), [[WorthyOpponent Nelo Angelo]] ([[spoiler:who ''is'' Vergil]]), and [[RedOniBlueOni Nero]] ([[spoiler:who may or may not be Vergil's son, and thus, ''his nephew'']]). People also love to CargoShip Dante with his Devil Arms (''especially'' [[HornyDevils Nevan]]). Very few notable characters are excluded from Dante's "harem"; [[ParentalIncest Sparda and Eva]], [[WomanInWhite Kyrie]] (Nero's [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Victorious Childhood Friend]]), the side characters from the second game and novels, [[MagnificentBastard Arkham]], [[HeroAntagonist Credo]], [[CrystalDragonJesus Sanctus]], and [[{{Satan}} Mundus]] seem to be untouched, but it would be no surprise if said pairings had their own niche. Finally, there's the {{Fan Preferred Couple}}s of Dante and VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} (his DistaffCounterpart and FetishFuelStationAttendant) or [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Morrigan]] (you can mainly thank ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 MvC3]]'' for this one). Naturally, some ''epic'' ShipToShipCombat ensues.
* Kasumi from ''VideoGame/{{Dead or Alive}}'' has ships for every base, ranging from the fairly mainstream [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Ryu Hayabusa]], the more [[YuriFan yurilicious]] Hitomi or Christie, all the way to straight up [[BrotherSisterIncest incest]] with her half sister Ayane or her brother Hayate. It would seem that whoever the favorite character is, shippers generally feel they go nicely with [[HeroesWantRedheads the cute redhead ninja]].
* Jin Kisaragi from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''. Aside from him being coupled with his older brother/rival [[IncestIsRelative Ragna the Bloodedge]] and childhood friend [[OfficialCouple Tsubaki]], Jin has been coupled with almost every character from the series even if it's almost impossible to happen. Despite him being a total [[{{Jerkass}} asshole]], this must be just a huge turn-on for the fandom.
** He has never been coupled with [[AnimeChineseGirl Litchi Faye-Ling]], though. [[FanFic/BlazBlue3RP A Web Works made it happen instead, though not in a romantic way]].
** Ragna himself enjoys a fairly substantial shipping base as well, having, in addition to Jin, been paired with Noel, Rachel, Taokaka, Nu ([[StalkerWithACrush kinda]]-[[{{Yandere}} sorta]]), Celica, and several characters who aren't even from the same franchise.
** Carl Clover also enjoys a fair amount of popularity amongst shippers as well, ranging from Noel and Makoto, to Litchi and his own sister, Ada, and, like Ragna, with several characters who aren't even from the same franchise.
* Atsuki Saijo from ''VisualNovel/LuxPain'' has a good amount of ShipTease with everyone.
* ''[[VideoGame/NintendoWars Advance Wars]]'' has three. You have Eagle who gets all the good guys, Hawke who gets all the bad guys and some of the good guys, and Andy who gets it up the butt from everyone. ESPECIALLY Eagle and Hawke.
* Endou from ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'' seems to get paired up with every other major character in the series, both male and female, most likely because he [[AllLovingHero can and does become good friends with anyone and everyone]]. Then there's a bunch of {{Starboarding}} with Endou on the receiving end, since he's a [[ObliviousToLove completely oblivious]] ChasteHero. Plus there are some fans who jokingly ship Endou x Soccer (yes, as in TheBeautifulGame).
* Hawke as either gender in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' bounces from person to person in fanfics like a ping pong ball.
* Despite the {{meme|ticMutation}} "Everyone is [[FurryFandom furry]] for Krystal," [[note]]the BerserkButton of all who are not, especially those who have gone furry for [[ComicBook/StarFox Fara]][[/note]] Krystal from ''VideoGame/StarFox'' is not the most prominent example of this trope from the series. Instead Fox tends to be paired with most of the other characters, [[HoYay yet he is rarely paired with any of the female characters aside from Krystal.]]
** While Krystal is being shipped with AnythingThatMoves.
* [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] goes with everybody. It's not just limited to female characters, either. [[IncestYayShipping Luigi]] is sometimes paired with him, and so is [[FoeYay Bowser]].
** Peach, too, especially when she followed TheSmurfettePrinciple back in the day. It doesn't help that she's a [[ChickMagnet Dude Magnet]] in-universe. [[RescueRomance Mario]], [[WeaknessTurnsHerOn Luigi]], [[CrackPairing Wario]], [[StockholmSyndrome Bowser]], [[LesYay Daisy]], [[LesYay Rosalina]]... {{Crossover Ship}}s based on ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' hook her up with [[LadyAndKnight Marth]], [[LesYay Zelda]], [[LesYay Samus]], [[CrackPairing Kirby]], the list goes on and on.
** [[EnsembleDarkhorse Rosalina]] is one in a very similar way to Peach. And now that she's being introduced to ''Franchise/SuperSmashBros''...
* [[Franchise/MortalKombat Sub-Zero]]. [[VideoGame/MortalKombat2 The younger one, anyway.]] Canonically, the closest thing he has to a girlfriend/partner/lover is [[VideoGame/MortalKombatMythologiesSubZero Sareena]], whom he enjoys a hefty amount of ShipTease with. But thanks to the magic of ShippingGoggles, all of his friendships and rivalries are misconstrued as possible ships. HeterosexualLifePartners with Smoke and [[VideoGame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance Kenshi]]? HoYay. Former archnemesis of Scorpion? FoeYay. [[DeceptiveDisciple Former pupil]] Frost is [[FoeYay eerily-obsessed with him?]] MentorShip. Not even his older brother, Elder Sub-Zero/Noob Saibot [[IncestIsRelative is safe from being paired up with Subby]] (it doesn't help that there's a LoveTriangle-esque relationship between them and Sareena, as Sareena also had feelings for the original Sub-Zero). [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight He also tends to be paired up with females he's only acquaintances with at best.]] Sub-Zero/Kitana, Sub-Zero/Jade, and Sub-Zero/Mileena have all popped up before on several occasions, and all are popular in their own right. Smoke (in most titles) [[RoboShip is a cyborg]], whereas Scorpion and Noob [[GhostShipping are undead]] and Sareena is [[InterspeciesRomance a demon]] [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction in human guise.]] It doesn't hurt that he's also [[MrFanservice fangirl bait]], so expect the female fans to create [=OC=]s to jump Sub-Zero's bones as well.
** Reptile seems to be working his way up, too. Although the only character that shows romantic interest in him is probably [[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 Khameleon]] (due to the whole AdamAndEvePlot thing), he's additionally paired with [[VideoGame/MortalKombat2 Mileena]] and [[VideoGame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance Nitara]] on a somewhat regular basis. Apparently, the lizard man has moxie.
* Chell has been paired up with nearly every character in ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}''. Wheatley is paired with almost as many. And Chell/Wheatley is the most popular ship in the fandom.
* As the only female character in ''VideoGame/LiveALive'' who can be brought to the final battle, and hence the only one who can canonically meet the protagonists from other eras, Li has been shipped across time and space. Popular love interests include Akira and [[FoeYay Odio]], but Masaru and Oboromaru are also occasional fic subjects, as is Yuan in the {{Fix Fic}}s where [[spoiler:they both survive.]]
* [[KnightInShiningArmor Ky Kiske]] and [[TheIngenue Dizzy ]] are the biggest ship launchers in ''GuiltyGear'' then [[spoiler:they became the OfficialCouple]].
* Speaking of SuperSmashBros, [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Samus Aran]] easily falls into this due to not having any romantic interest in her own series (or more than a handful of characters per game other than herself, for that matter). [[VideoGame/{{Halo}} Master Chief]], [[Franchise/StarWars Boba Fett]], and ComicBook/IronMan are common choices due to [[PoweredArmor Shared concepts]], but she seems to pick a new one up every new game in the ''Smash Bros'' series: Captain Falcon in ''Melee'', Solid Snake in ''Brawl'', and now [[VideoGame/PunchOut Little Mac]], due to the latter's introductary trailer, even though it primarily involved him [[LoveAtFirstPunch punching the hell outta her]] for making fun of his height.
** Also, oddly enough, [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Pit]] and Franchise/MegaMan in the latter two games as well. We're not sure why parts of the fandom have deemed her a {{shotacon}}, out of all the characters.
