* The writers of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' are (not without basis) accused of teasing the incessant Zutara (Zuko/Katara) shippers, as traces of hinting can be found in the ''Avatar''-dedicated Nick Mag issue and within various interviews. Most notably, trailers for the second season teased a hookup between the two - they get LockedInARoom, and [[{{Deconstruction}} they don't go the route most characters go afterwards]] (despite ''her thumb on his mouth''). Followed in the same episode by a thorough and brutal ShipSinking.
** The four-part finale, in which the ship teasing is as brutally epic as the storyline itself, threw out more bait to the Zutara fans ''than the entire rest of the series combined''. It even includes such classics as [[spoiler:SheIsNotMyGirlfriend and TakingTheBullet, only to shoot it all down in flames with two heartfelt love scenes - Aang/Katara and Zuko/Mai - in the very last minutes of the last episode]]. (And they still have time to start a Toph/Zuko ShipTease.) The amount of ship teasing present in the finale actually confused many casual watchers as to the ending pairings, since [[spoiler:Katara and Aang don't interact except for the start and the very end of the finale.]]
** ''Film/TheLastAirbender'' somehow managed to make the Zuko/Katara fight at the North Pole full of even ''more'' Ship Teasing goodness. Probably because they skipped "The Waterbending Scroll".
** The writers teased the [[PortmanteauCoupleName Kataang]] [[OfficialCouple (Katara/Aang)]] shippers in an earlier episode, where they set up a TrueLovesKiss plot - but had the lights go out at the crucial moment, leaving viewers to wonder Did They Or Didn't They?
** The Season 3, part 2 trailer, which one Katara/Aang shipper described as "a giant kick in the groin," proved that the PR staff were still up to their old tricks, and the shippers ''still'' hadn't learned [[NeverTrustATrailer their lesson]].
** {{Lampshaded}} [[BetterThanABareBulb (like everything else on the show)]] in "[[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheEmberIslandPlayers The Ember Island Players]]". This also contained a legitimate ship tease, where Toph punches [[spoiler:Zuko]] in the arm and then says "[[SlapSlapKiss It's how I show affection.]]" (Which would make ''other'' previous moments where she punches her friends a ship tease...)
** The writers apparently enjoyed the ShipToShipCombat somewhat, as evidenced by their SuperDeformed Short "School Day Shipping."
** And they ''did it again'' with a marathon of ''Avatar'' reruns, with pop-up jokes and factoids appearing on the screen. (One pop-up quips "Love at first sight" during Aang and Katara's first meeting, and another teases "Zuko was originally going to be a love interest for Katara.") The guy who wrote these is the same one behind "Ember Island Players", so the odds of it being unintentional are probably nil.
** The Sokka/Toph moment in "The Serpent's Pass". "You can just go ahead and let me drown now" indeed.
*** In "Sokka's Master," when Sokka returns to the group, Toph dismissively says that the others missed him... and then turns around so he can't see her, smiles, and ''[[LuminescentBlush blushes]]''.
*** A small but notable scene in "The Western Air Temple" where Sokka actually picks Toph up and cradles her as he walks to camp.
** Most of the [[BrotherSisterIncest Azula / Zuko]] shipping can be chalked up to the fact that she's TheVamp and acts vaguely seductive toward ''everyone'' as opposed to intentional teasing, but the bedroom scene ''is'' a bit much....
* SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra,'' picks up ''right'' where they left off.
** No sooner than the ''second'' episode did they manage an obscene amount of ship teasing between Mako and Korra. This continued for a vengeance for multiple episodes, until [[spoiler:they become the OfficialCouple in the season 1 finale.]]
** For Korra and Bolin we have Bolin's attempts at impressing Korra, but most importantly his words to Mako after the latter berates him for bringing into their prep room another one of his fangirls (or so he assumes). Bolin tells him, "There's something special about this girl. I can feel it."
** Episode 5 can be summed up as an episode devoted to Ship Tease. Bolin and Korra end up on a date together, with Bolin clearly showing feelings for Korra, while Korra herself shows that she has feelings for Mako through the course of the episode, reaching a climax when [[spoiler:Korra kisses Mako.]]
** Episode 6 of Book 2 has a moment where [[spoiler:Asami kisses Mako]] after the latter says in a suggestive way "I won't give up on you" after admitting to having a falling out with Korra while the former had her life practically destroyed. It doesn't help that the Book before,they were dating
* ''KimPossible'', from day one, had all manner of Ship Tease going on between Kim and Ron. Certain exchanges ("If she saw us coming out of a date movie together, she might, you know..." "[[FlatWhat You. And me.]] On a date?" "Not that we, y'know, would or anything...") and certain scenes (the parody of the famous [[{{Film/Spider-Man}} upside-down kiss]]) littered various episodes, and "Emotion Sickness" was one big tease from start to finish, while simultaneously teasing Drakken and Shego. The ''first episode'' has Ron declare [[ShesNotMyGirlfriend "And contrary to popular belief, I am not dating Kim Possible"]] in what could be the quickest series-start-to-ship-tease since [[Series/TheXFiles Mulder and Scully]]. All of which inevitably lead to their RelationshipUpgrade at the end of season three.
** "Homecoming Upset" had its fair share of Ron/Bonnie teases.
** How can we forget Shego and Kim? The amount of ShipTease they get ALONE could take up a whole page...
* ''TheBoondocks'': Huey and Jazmine, in several episodes. They even have their own ShipperOnDeck in the form of Granddad.
* ''CodenameKidsNextDoor'' has teased Kuki and Wally fans repeatedly: for instance, in TheMovie, playing with DyingDeclarationOfLove by having one of them infected with TheVirus (and passing it on just in time for KissingUnderTheInfluence). The final episode's DistantFinale framing sequence hints at a LastMinuteHookup between Kuki and Hoagie, before revealing at the last moment that they were just sitting together [[spoiler:and having Wally berate Hoagie to take his hands of Kuki, his wife]].
** In the case of ''unresolved'' ship tease, we have [[TheLeader Nigel/Numbuh One]] and [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Rachel/Numbuh 362]]. The season 5 finale showed them as ''very'' close friends, with Nigel constantly trying to snap her out of her HeroicBSOD. Then came "Operation: G.I.R.L.F.R.I.E.N.D.", which has them on a FirstNameBasis and did everything short of waving a flag in your face saying "SHE'S MADLY IN LOVE WITH HIM!"
* In ''JusticeLeague'' Bruce Timm admitted to doing this with Franchise/{{Batman}} and Franchise/WonderWoman after shippers misintepreted a gesture of thanks as flirting in "The Brave and the Bold". Anybody who's familiar with the {{DCAU}} (specifically ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'') knows that Batman is going to end up bitter and alone...
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' had [[OfficialCouple Robin and Starfire]] ShipTease in spades...and that's not even getting into the PsychicLink between Robin and Raven. Or the constant [[SlapSlapKiss conflict]] between Raven and Beast Boy. Or Terra/Beast Boy.
** Some of that is ShoutOut to the source material. Dick and Kory have been on again off again since the BronzeAge. Geoff Johns had a bit between Gar and Raven on his run that didn't work so well. And then the {{Squick}} implications of the Terra/Slade stuff is worse when you've actually read Judas Contract.
*** They did tease Beast Boy and Raven in the ''ComicBook/TeenTitansGo'' comics, which were based off the animated series. They also continue to do so in the newer ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' series, which is loosely based on the previous cartoon.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'': Plenty of ship tease, but what crossed the final line was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pixB4kf_9I the song "I Need a Hand"]] during "Caveman's Best Friend". It's the end of the song, folks. When they're holding hands. Doesn't that scream "LOVE" to you?! I guess it does.
* There are numerous Ship-Teasing with Gwen and Kevin in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' .
* Babs and Buster Bunny ([[RunningGag No relation]]) in ''{{Tiny Toon Adventures}}''.
* The ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' episode "Duck to the Future" was pretty Ship tease-y in the [[FoeYay Magica/Scrooge]] department, what with Magica embracing Scrooge when the two escape from the Hindenburg...and ''reaching down his shirt'' for his NumberOneDime.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'': The promos for the [[MilestoneCelebration 10th anniversary special]] "Truth Or Square" all focused on a scene where Spongebob and Sandy get married. In the actual episode it turns out [[spoiler:it's all part of a play. Fan reaction has not been too hostile (albeit it was disappointing for some), which is good because it would look really foolish considering it wasn't a ShipSinking.]]
* While ''{{Fillmore}}'' was mostly a NoHuggingNoKissing series, the writers definitely gave a ToyShip vibe between the two leading characters. Mostly because their dialogue had a tendency to sound flirtatious at times, coupled with all the subtext of a BuddyCopShow.
* ''TheFairlyOddparents'' special "Wishology" seems to finally lean the show in the Timmy/Trixie direction (and at the same time, gives the [[FanPreferredCouple Timmy/Tootie]] shippers [[ShipSinking reason to be very sad]]), but at the end, the ResetButton returns Trixie to her normal self.
** In the earlier special "Channel Chasers", there is a portrayal of Timmy's two GenerationXerox children: [[PaletteSwap One who looks exactly like Tootie but has Timmy's brown hair, and the other who looks exactly like Timmy but has Tootie's black hair]]. It was supposed to be unclear whether Timmy's children are Tootie's or Trixie's, Butch Hartman saying it could be either of the two. Given that both of these ships have rabid fans, that was probably a good idea. It didn't stop ''both'' sides from being furious about the outcome of "Wishology", though...
** Than the Live Action movie came along...shippers of Timmy/Tootie went crazy in a good way at the ending...
* The ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "That Sinking Feeling" has the two title characters try to help their friend impress a girl. Phineas later invites Isabella along ([[NotWhatItLooksLike but not in the way you'd think]]), providing plenty of this trope. The episode even occurs on a cruise ship.
** Phineas/Isabella gets teased a lot. For example, Isabella spends the whole episode "Out to Launch" trying to ask Phineas to a dance... only to have him misunderstand her and invite Ferb along as a third wheel. In "One Good Scare Ought to Do It", Phineas not only spends the whole episode trying to help her, but holds her hand practically through the entire song. Many smaller examples also exist.
*** An example that has shippers up on cloud nine occurs in "The Chronicles of Meap". Isabella spends the whole episode trying to get registered by Phineas's "Cute Tracker", to no effect. Then Phineas explains he already took her cuteness into account and set the device to ignore her from the start. When he resets it to stop ignoring her, it immediately shorts out. This promptly spawned a number of EpilepticTrees stating Phineas may not be as ObliviousToLove as he seems.
*** In TheMovie, Phineas seems rather pleased when [[spoiler:Isabella kisses him]], and makes like he's going to do/say something else, but never gets the chance.
** The episode "Vanessessary Roughness" does this for [[PrecociousCrush Ferb/Vanessa]], especially given the cheek-kiss at the end.
** The hour-long special "Summer Belongs To You" teased two of the three most prominent pairings in the show: Phineas/Isabella and Ferb/Vanessa ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and]] [[HoYay Buford/Baljeet]], [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar of]] [[SpaghettiKiss all]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny things]]). It didn't tease Candace/Jeremy however, [[spoiler:considering they became an OfficialCouple at the end of the special.]]
** "Phineas and Ferb's Quantumn Boogaloo" almost confirms the ship, while at the same time opening a new can of worms. While 20 years in the future Isabella is ecstatic to hear Candace's kids comment she looks like their Aunt Isabella, proving she must marry Phineas. Then past!Candace points out she could also marry Ferb and still be their aunt, prompting a look of shock from Isabella - and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny a point and a wink]] from the [[CovertPervert usually-stoic]] Ferb.
** For some reason, despite the [[InterspeciesRomance species difference]], the show loves teasing Doofenshmirtz and Perry.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' teased Arthur/Francine a few times with a SheIsNotMyGirlfriend episode at one point and a few glimpses into the future (which may or may not be {{Imagine Spot}}s) that imply both will eventually get married.
* Despite their relationship being [[JustFriends explicitly platonic]], ''MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' threw in some teasing for Brad and Jenny from time to time.
* ''IronManArmoredAdventures'' is loaded with this. Tony/Pepper, Tony/Whitney, and Rhodey/Whitney all get ship teases in the series, but that's just the intentional ones. Unintentionally there's hints of Pepper/Gene all over the place, though WordOfGod has it they [[RelationshipWritingFumble were meant to just come across as friends.]]
* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' is infamous for possibly the longest ever (still ongoing!!) never-resolved WillTheyOrWontThey between Fred and Daphne (if you're not counting the live action movies).
** Finally They Will in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' where Fred even proposes to Daphne. The first season finale [[spoiler:cancels their engagement to look for his natural parents.]]
*** Episode 51 had [[spoiler: Fred come right out and say he loves Daphne followed by a BigDamnKiss]]. However, after [[spoiler:the gang destroys the Nibiru curse and jumps the timeline into a different Crystal Cove, it's unclear if Fred's intentions were still valid at that point.]]
* Even ''TheMagicSchoolBus'', which was primarily an EdutainmentShow and aimed at little kids, managed to sneak in some hints between most of the kids. The most consistently teased pairings were the three cases of OppositesAttract: Ralphie/Keesha, Carlos/Dorothy Ann, and Arnold/Wanda.
** Arnold was a veritable ChickMagnet; he was also teased with Phoebe ("The Busasaurus") and Dorothy Ann ("Cracks a Yolk"), and a girl in another class named Tiffany ("Wet All Over"). One episode teased him with ''both'' Phoebe and Wanda at once ("Goes Cellular").
* On ''JimmyTwoShoes'', [[ThePollyanna Jimmy]] comes into [[MadScientist Heloise's]] room when [[ItMakesSenseInContext the rest of the town is in hibernation]]. After trying to wake her up normally, he looks into the book she's holding, reading that a princess was awakened by a kiss. He looks at Heloise for a moment, who has sparkles over her...then tosses the book aside, muttering, "You can't believe everything you read."
** Another episode focusing on HiccupHijinks had a doctor suggesting that Jimmy cure Heloise's hiccups with a slight obstruction of the air passage, such as ''a prolonged kiss''. Jimmy reluctantly decides to provide it. [[spoiler:In the [[HilarityEnsues ensuing hilarity]], Heloise ends up kissing Beezy instead]].
** Yet another episode ends with [[spoiler: Jimmy and Heloise fused together. They end up at the movies. When Jimmy asks when she'll reverse the process, she merely shrugs, saying "I'm in no rush."]]
* A season 4 episode of ''KaBlam'' featured Henry falling in love with a one-shot character, Dawn. June was mad. So were the H/J Shippers. Did the creators forget about episode 29? (Oh wait, never mind. They did.)
* During season 2 of ''TotalDramaIsland'' the writers loved to tease Duncan with girls other than his canon love interest Courtney. Mostly this was with [[FanPreferredCouple Gwen]] but he also ended up kissing Heather (as part of a challenge) and going on a 'date' with Lindsay (to deliberately infuriate Courtney). Then season three, the tease with Gwen became the truth!
** {{Crack Ship}}pers had a field day when Noah/Bridgette was thrown at them [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight out of NOWHERE]].
** [[TheSmartGuy Noah]]/[[ManicPixieDreamGirl Izzy]] seem to be just friends, but a lot of their interactions come off as cutesy or romantic. They also happen to be a FanPreferredCouple.
* According to the [[http://questfan.com/Page/Writer%27s_Bible.html Writer's Bible]] of ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'', the writers wanted to ShipTease Jonny/Jessie in the first season. When a new head writer took over in season 2, ShipTease was also planned for Hadji/Jessie while continuing the Jonny/Jessie teasing from the previous season, hinting at a possible TwoGuysAndAGirl LoveTriangle. The Jonny/Jessie teasing culminated in the second season episode "Ghost Quest" where Jonny and Jessie [[KissingUnderTheInfluence kiss while possessed by the ghosts of two former lovers]].
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers'' had quite a bit of this between Shane and Niko, especially if Chris Rowley was writing. "Scarecrow" is positively loaded. There's one scene where Shane was dancing with a local girl. Niko asks him later about his "girlfriend," and he remarks "She already has a date...and so do I." Then, there's the scene where Scarecrow busts into an injured Niko's room and attacks her. Shane breaks in and brawls Scarecrow, but is knocked against a wall. Before the Scarecrow can kill him, Niko grabs her {{BFG}} and shoots, scaring the thing off. As she swoons from the injuries she already has, Shane catches her, and says softly. "Easy, babe, sleep now." It was rather amusing when Rowley discovered the FanFic fifteen years later...
* ''HeyArnold'' does this with some of the lesser characters: Harold with both Rhonda and Patty, Sid and Rhonda (in the episode "Wheezin' Ed"), Sheena and Eugene. Phoebe and Gerald also count earlier on, but they're more or less the official BetaCouple by season 4.
* Used on several occasions with Odd and Sissi in ''CodeLyoko'', who share an almost SlapSlapKiss dynamic.
** Odd also gets a lot of ShipTease with [[BarrierWarrior Aelita]], calling her "Princess" and mentioning how pretty she is on more than one occasion. Aelita also seems to worry about him more often, usuaully running to help him every time he gets hurt in Lyoko, and prefers riding on the Overboard with him. [[spoiler:And then, of course, there's their kiss in season 4]]. According to WordOfGod, though, [[ShipSinking nothing comes of it]].
* There's actually been a pretty good amount of ship teasing in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' after only a season, including Cliffjumper and Arcee.
** The worst is probably "Metal Attraction", which deliberately plays with Bulkhead/Arcee, right down to Miko acting jealous (a tease in an of itself depending on you want to look at it).
** The biggest amount of shipping seems to be between Arcee and Jack. If only because the writers seem to like teasing nearly every type of relationship the two of them could possibly have.
* ''{{Chowder}}'': There are a few such moments between Shnitzel and Ms. Endive, even though Endive has a DoesNotLikeMen attitude and Shnitzel is TheUnintelligible of the group. [[spoiler: They are ultimately HappilyMarried in the GrandFinale.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'': Edd was teased for Edd/Nazz in "the day the Edd stood still." See the kiss scene which we ALL remember.
** Eddy gets a kiss from Nazz too in the movie. It's adorable.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' has the FoeYay variety of this at times between Him and Bubbles, Mojo Jojo and Blossom, Buttercup and Him, ''and'' Buttercup and Ace.
* ''XMenEvolution'':
** Being the OfficialCouple, it's only natural that Scott and Jean had plenty of ShipTease before their RelationshipUpgrade in early season 3. Remy and Rogue also had their share of ShipTease, likely as a reference to their relationship in the comics.
** Despite them both getting love interests in season 2, Kurt and Kitty had a lot of ShipTease throughout the show. There is some debate over whether the writers did this deliberately to please (or torture) the Kurt/Kitty shippers, if it's a case of RelationshipWritingFumble, or if [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Kurt and Kitty would have gotten together]] had there been a season five.
** Everyone had a ShipTease moment with everyone at some point, listing it all would be impossible but the fansite ''Beyond Evolution'' has a list of a number of possible couples. Each one lists the episodes that had a ship tease moment. It organizes the couples based on their possibility of existance. Some of the listed Ship Teases are with ShippingGoggles (Lance/Kitty in No Good Deed? They didn't even interact, Jean/Lucas? He kidnapped her).
** The New Mutants had a truckload of it. From Iceman making an ice ballerina spin for Jubilee, to everything Sunspot and Wolfsbane did in "Retreat", to how much time Cannonball and Magma spend together.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': Between Robin/Artemis, although they end up [[spoiler: Sharing a BigDamnKiss with Wally and Zatanna respectively in the first season fanale, with Artemis and Wally becoming an OfficialCouple]].
* Depending on the episode, Gadget from ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' was either interested in Chip, interested in Dale, interested in someone else (usually a oneshot character like Sparky), not interested in anyone, or unaware of the concept of romance. Trying to figure out which viewpoint has the most support, however, is the hottest and most divisive topic in the fandom, and bringing it up is either the fastest way to start a FlameWar, or the fastest way to get someone to step in and change the subject.
** Then you also had other one-shot teases like Dale and Foxglove, which carried over into the brief comic revival by Boom! To a lesser degree you have Tammy and Chip, although this was rather [[StalkerWithACrush one-sided]] on Tammy's part.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'', Cheetara is teased with both Lion-O (they spend an episode psychically linked, he's been shoved into her, and she has a throwaway line in the pilot about how handsome he'd become) and Tygra, who she eventually gets together with in the tie-in comics.
* The writers of ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'' have [[http://tv.ign.com/articles/117/1176532p2.html decided]] to take the original concept above and ''[[InvokedTrope run with it]],'' making Tygra Lion-O's adoptive older brother, giving them a longstanding, deep-seated SiblingRivalry and a [[SiblingTriangle shared]] attraction to Cheetara. They're now all ''teenagers'', which adds to the moodiness. So far:
** In "Omens Part One", TheCharmer Tygra openly flirted with Cheetara while she's clad in [[FullBodyDisguise priestly vestments]] that leave only her ''eyes'' visible.
** In "Song of the Petalars", Lion-O had a moment holding hands with Cheetara as she comforts him during a moment of grief... promptly [[MomentKiller killed]] by Snarf's glomping his face.
** In "Journey to the Tower of Omens", Lion-O is a bit ''nervous'' over Cheetara's HandsOnApproach towards coaching him in the Sword of Omens' use, (which Wilykit notices, and merrily mocks with smooching noises) while Tygra later [[LongingLook gapes]] over Cheetara's SuperSpeed, to which a smirking Panthro quips:
-->'''Panthro:''' Close that mouth; you're drooling.
* Despite the theme of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' being, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin friendship]], it does have a number of these moments:
** The episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E10SecretOfMyExcess "Secret of My Excess"]] was basically one big Spike/Rarity tease. In the next episode where they're actually shown together[[note]]Aside from a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E15TheSuperSpeedyCiderSqueezy6000 "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000"[[/note]]]], [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E21DragonQuest ''Dragon Quest'']], Rarity is ''extremely'' affectionate towards Spike. It should be noted that this is the only case in which one of the parties involved (Spike) is canonically [[PrecociousCrush in love]] [[LittleBoySeeksBigGirl with the other]].
** During the PhotoMontage in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 "A Canterlot Wedding Part 2"]], Rainbow Dash is seen with Soarin' (one of the Wonderbolts), Rarity with Fancy Pants, and Spike dancing alongside Sweetie Belle. A [[EarWorm catchy]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEJ8CzAD4TE love song]] is playing when this happens.
** In "Rainbow Falls", there are a few moments that look like Fluttershy is flirting with [[GentleGiant Bulk Biceps]] of all ponies.
** "Hearts and Hooves Day" is essentially an extended ShipTease between Big Macintosh and Cheerilee. The two of them spend most of the episode under the effects of a LovePotion, but when they come out of, it's left [[MaybeEverAfter thoroughly ambiguous]] whether there are real romantic feelings between them or whether they were just trolling the CMC. The two are seen walking together in a later episode, and in "Filli Vanilli", Cheerilee swoons at Big Mac's singing (though it isn't actually Big Mac singing; he is just lip synching).
** In ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E25TwilightsKingdomPart1 Twilights Kingdom Part 1]]'', a few of Fluttershy and Discord's moments show them being very close, plus the passing mention of the two having a get-together for tea. When confronting Tirek, Discord tells him he's only capturing him for Fluttershy's sake. He also has a photo of him and Fluttershy together.
** In ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E26TwilightsKingdomPart2 Twilight's Kingdom Part 2]]'':\\\
If you look closely at the captured Mane 5 after Discord is drained, you can see Spike holding Rarity.\\\
Near the end, Discord gives Celestia a bouquet of flowers and winks at her. It does seem like a possible acknowledgement of the fan idea that the two of them [[FoeYay had a thing]] once.\\\
The Discord/Fluttershy tease is still going strong - Discord softly apologizes to her, and she forgives him. And then there's this little exchange:
-->'''Fluttershy:''' ''(to Twilight, on her HeroicSacrifice)'' We're not worth it!\\
'''Discord:''' Oh, but ''[[YouAreWorthHell you]]'' are, Fluttershy. You're the pony who taught me that [[TitleDrop Friendship is Magic]]. I had magic ''and'' friendship, and now, I don't have either.
** Since ''Equestria Girls'', Twilight Sparkle and Flash Sentry. Even though Flash Sentry has made a couple appearances so far.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** The two-parter "Mortal Folly"/"Mortal Recoil" is filled with [[PrecociousCrush Finn/Bubblegum]] teasing. Even beyond Finn defeating [[VileVillainSaccharineShow The Lich]] with the [[ThePowerOfLove The Power of L-l-liking Someone a Lot]] thanks to the sweater Bubblegum gave him, and Finn's subsequent ineffective attempt at admitting this to Bubblegum, the two-parter ends with Bubblegum [[PuppyLove turned thirteen years old]] and giving Finn a congratulatory hug. "Too Young" continued this teasing with a vengeance, only to swerve into a ShipSinking ending.
** Intentionally [[RelationshipWritingFumble or not]], "What Was Missing" is seen as one colossal tease for Bubblegum/Marceline, the pinnacle of which was either A) a song that hinted at some incredible emotional pain in their past relationship with all the subtlety of a mountain, or B) that Bubblegum's stolen treasure was a shirt Marceline gave her (directly paralleling Finn's stolen treasure; a wad of Bubblegum's hair). [[http://www.scribd.com/doc/77248876/What-Was-Missing-Storyboard The publically released storyboard]] reveals that originally there were even ''more'' hints planned.
*** "Sky Witch", holy crap. The episode literally opens with Bubblegum ''sensually sniffing'' the shirt Marceline gave her, and the end reveals that said shirt has more emotional significance attached to it than ''Hambo'' (Marceline's stuffed animal, the only thing she has to remember her ParentalSubstitute after [[spoiler:he became the Ice King]]).
** "Go With Me" is odd in that it seems to be both teasing and [[ShipSinking sinking]] Finn/Marceline at once--the whole episode makes a point of showing how they get along better than either does with Bubblegum, but Marceline [[TheNotLoveInterest pointedly turns Finn down]] when he seems to be asking her on a date. When it turns out to be NotADate she goes, and they bond over their hatred of romance in the most romantically platonic way possible.
** "Hot to the Touch" is dedicated to nothing other than teasing Finn and the Flame Princess.
*** And "Burning Low" caused a veritable explosion in the Finn/FP shippers, what with [[spoiler: Jake calling Bubblegum out as being jealous that Finn likes FP, and the [[TheBigDamnKiss huge kiss]] and heroic rescue at the end.]]
** "Gotcha!" teases Lumpy Space Princess/Finn, oddly enough, with the episode revolving around LSP trying to charm Finn and Jake only to fall for Finn's kindness and sincerity ("His hot lumps are on the ''inside''!"). Near the end, LSP even admits that she thinks Finn is "hot".
** Ever since "You Made Me" aired, fans have shipped Lemongrab with his clone. In what can only be described as something straddling the line between a ShipTease and full-blown WordOfGay, Adventure Time writer [[WordOfGod Thomas Herpich]] once drew a picture of the Lemongrabs smiling and hugging each other... while [[http://sphotos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/311281_299606876817451_1503856371_n.jpg butt naked]]. And in "All Your Fault," the Lemongrabs actually ''have children together''.
** "Too Old" refloats the Finn/Bubblegum ship to tease it briefly, only for Bubblegum to harshly shut down Finn towards the end of the episode, followed by Finn seemingly learning for the final time that the age difference between the two make them incompatible.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': [[PuppyLove Stan and Wendy]] are an OfficialCouple, but he does have some ShipTease with his [[HeterosexualLifePartners best friend]], [[FieryRedhead Kyle]]. Kyle, in the meantime, has some pretty thick FoeYay subtext with [[ManipulativeBastard Cartman]], who has in turn been teased with Wendy before.
** While not necessarily played straight (it's more a parody of shipping, if anything), ''Cartman Finds Love'' makes Cartman's only previously implied [[FoeYay intimate relationship]] with Kyle [[OfficialCouple canon]]. [[GossipEvolution Kind of]]. Cartman obsessively ships Token/Nichole, [[TokenMinorityCouple since they're both black]], and when he hears that Nichole likes Kyle, he tells her that he and Kyle are in a relationship, so therefore she can't date him. She then procedes to get together with Token. Kyle, in the mean time, learns about Cartman's rumor about the two of them and demands he tell the truth, but Cartman convinces him to keep quiet so he won't ruin Nichole's happy relationship. Nichole, however, dumps Token when she fears they're only dating because they're both black, and once Cartman learns Kyle is taking Nichole to a basketball game, he follows them, gets on the megatron, proclaims his love for Kyle (complete with singing him a love ballad and calling him "babe") in front of thousands. Kyle, who was an unwilling participant in Cartman's plan since he did really like Nichole, storms out angrily.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' episode "Summerween", Candy Chiu hanging on to Dipper after the Trickster's threat was enough to send some shippers into fits of squeeing. There were already Candy/Dipper shippers before, but this was the first remotely shippy real interaction they could grasp.
* ''{{Archer}}'' has unimaginable amounts of [[EveryoneHasLotsOfSex everyone on everyone]] but in the current season 4 episodes, the most prominent is Archer and Lana, who have plunged into the WillTheyOrWontThey category. They used to date but since Archer's an unrepentant asshole, Lana has no desire to be in a relationship with him. However, they've slept together at least once since the break up and Archer is showing signs of actually caring about her while she flip-flops between hating his guts and realizing he isn't a total JerkAss.
** This is taken even further in Archer: Vice. Along with comforting her several times whenever things got too dire, Archer has tried his damndest to be the [[spoiler:father figure he feels Lana's unborn child is going to need.]]
* Lots of this in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012''. The writers are using Donnie's crush on April as comic relief, but some fans are taking it seriously. They detest the OfficialCouple, Casey and April, and desperately want April to end up with Donnie for once.
** Despite this, the writers do include some ship tease for Casey and April.
** On top of that, Leonardo has a variance of DatingCatwoman with Karai. They seek each other out for fun, they both care about the other's well being despite technically being enemies, and their battles absolutely reek of sexual tension.
* In the kids show ''WesternAnimation/PAWPatrol'', the main ship tease is Chase/Skye. In the episode "Pups Save the Sea Turtles" he gets worried about her, even gushing to her how worried he was. This happens again in "Pups Save the Camping Trip" but this time, Skye replies by calling him very "sweet".
