Shipper On Deck: Web Comics
  • Susan's suggestion in this El Goonish Shive strip probably qualifies.
    • While Sarah's various and relatively subtle attempts to influence Ellen and Nanase (putting them together for the pictures, seating them together for dinner, and maneuvering them into sitting side-by-side on the couch) definitely qualify.
    • The unnamed "Star Trek fangirl" ships Susan and Elliot to the point that she shows up at the video store to ask Susan about it, rather than renting a video. And just happens to be there for Sarah telling Susan about breaking up with Elliot. Cue Squeeing.
    • As of the Squirrel Prophet storyline, there's Sarah and Grace shipping Justin with Luke. Also serves to illustrate the different ideas of shipping they both have.
  • In Shortpacked!, Robin's fixation with Ethan and Thad, even after they'd both told her they weren't gonna do it... To the point where it got a little creepy.
    • A little? She tried to pass a bill through Congress to make them "do it"!
  • A bonus strip in one of The Order of the Stick books makes Elan into this. He not-too-subtly attempts to get Hinjo and Lien to hook up, out of the belief that they need to "repopulate the paladin race". They are not amused.
  • While Fox and Collin in Friendly Hostility are a canon couple, Derringer certainly qualifies by referring to them as his "OTP", and he's not afraid to defend it.
  • The main Love Triangle in Girl Genius.
  • Gabby successfully shipped Tipper and Chiachi together in Namir Deiter.
    • Falco, on the other hand, was not so lucky — her attempts to ship Tipper and Gabby just pushed the two of them apart for a while, even before outing Gabby.
  • Both Hod and Loki from Brat-Halla ship Thor and Sif. Loki mostly does it to cause Thor anguish. For Hod, that seems to be a bonus.
  • Megatokyo: Erika and Largo seem to ship Piro and Kimiko. Yuki's friends ship her with Piro at first, until they encourage her relationship with Kobayashi.
    • Yuki's mother obviously ships Erika/Largo. Not that it needed help anyway.
    • And Yuki herself is probably the biggest Piro/Miho fangirl in the series.
  • Nephilim from Fetch Quest: Saga of the Twelve Artifacts, despite being straitlaced compared to her twin sister, has this as her quirk. Or so Word of God says...
  • Questionable Content:
  • Though relatively passive about it, everyone in Red String ships Reika and Eiji. Multiple characters comment "havn't those two gotten together yet?"
  • Cloud's mother Ye Thuza and his younger sister Yuna from Sandra and Woo try to ship him with Sandra, in the most annoying way possible. He even lampshades their fandom.
  • Pretty much everyone in Bittersweet Candy Bowl tries to get Mike and Lucy together. While Lucy is all for it (though she hates the interference in her life, she does love Mike... probably), Mike has a long-distance girlfriend and rejects Lucy, leading to much angst. Complicated by the fact that several cast members have crushes on Mike or Lucy, but still want them to get together...
    • Yashy is especially egregious in this regard, particularly in the earlier strips. This is complete with viciously insulting any other girl who displays an attraction to Mike... which happens to be most of them.
  • PeeJee ships Davan with his current girlfriend Vanessa in Something Positive. Having coerced Davan into following up Vanessa's interest in him when he never would have bothered, she likes Vanessa and she's not going to let anyone mess up her Platonic Life Partner's happiness, especially not Davan himself.
  • Sister America and Sister Japan of Scandinavia and the World are both Yaoi Fangirls. Sister America's ship of choice is Denmark/Norway (with Sweden occasionally thrown into the mix) and Sister Japan's ship is Netherlands/Belgium. Although Sister Japan isn't above fantasizing about Denmark/Netherlands/(modern day) Germany; particularly since Denmark and Netherlands encourage it. Sister America does not approve.
  • Nepeta Leijon of Homestuck. She even has a wall cataloging all her ships. They cover every single person she knows, including herself.
    • Also, Hearts Boxcars. Yes, the Midnight Crew's huge brute [[]]
    • Karkat has his own variation on this, but it's more trying to avoid what Squicks him (Interspecies Romance) while taking in consideration what squicks the humans (Brother-Sister Incest). He even drew a diagram.
    • There have been a few chat logs/memos that suggest Sollux and even Vriska ship Karkat and Terezi.
    • UU has apparently written shippy fanfiction about the Alpha kids, but it's unknown yet what pairings she included.
    • There are indications that the AR may be trying to set up Dirk and Jake (hitting on Jake and telling Roxy that because of this Jake has gotten used to the idea of Dirk being into him, encouraging Dirk to confess, admitting that he has his own plots but assuring Dirk that they don't conflict with his, stressing that Jake play server to Dirk just as he suggested would help their relationship...) but his intentions, as of yet, can only be guessed at.
    • Even Gamzee has his moments.
    bro. SLOPPY M4K3OUTS. NOW. on the roof. H3H3H3 >:o]
    • Meulin goes beyond even Nepeta's levels of shipping obsession, even going as far as playing The Matchmaker with her friends. After all, she's a Flanderized version of Nepeta in general.
    • Squarewave's reaction to seeing Roxy kiss Dirk? "YEAH DOGG!!!"
  • Sara of Penny and Aggie spent a while convinced that the title characters were a rolling storm of lesbian Foe Yay. It turns out she was projecting, and she eventually comes to terms with her own sexuality. Later still, she turns out to have been right all along, and she couldn't be more ecstatic about it.
  • Beau the angel is a smirky kind of shipper in Catena. Not only is he evidently in favor of a match between Bryony and the Grim Reaper, but he's rather smug during those moments that indicate it will eventually happen.
  • Wildy San of Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures ships Abel and Jyrras (see last panel).
  • In what is perhaps the weirdest example of this trope, Spinnerette's bottom left hand ships her and Mecha Maid.
  • Velvet of Deer Me has this view in regards to her roommates Thomas and Viana. This is naturally lampshaded during the "Dog Daze" story arc when Velvet notes that not all of her matchmaking efforts have panned out, gesturing towards the two of them.
  • Uh, Kat and Jones from Gunnerkrigg Court , anyone? Jones, hands Andrew rose, nudges him to Parley? Kat, with that exuberant expression on her face as Andrew and Parley are about to kiss, then getting Annie out of the way as she is perpetually clueless to current affairs? Later she also pushes Annie herself into talking with Jack.
  • Girls with Slingshots has Jamie, who ships a new couple every arc. Best example here.
  • Syren of The Jupiter Palladium is pretty much made of this trope. There's a wallpaper of the face.
  • In Dumbing of Age, Joyce ships Billie/Walky—hanging a lampshade on her Shipper on Deck status in the process.
    • Meanwhile, Billie has been shipping Walky/Dorothy, if only to get the former out of her hair.
  • Raji is one for Yuki and Alex in Mahou Shounen Fight.
  • Magick Chicks had this as a popular pastime in Artemis Academy. "I am shipping those two soooooo hard!"
  • In Slightly Damned, Rhea's support of Kieri and Buwaro's relationship is obvious early on. The support of an elite angelic Seraph, the warriors skilled in exterminating Demons, was a bit of a surprise.
  • In Squid Row, Max aggressively shipped Randie and Ryan for a short time after Ryan returned from London.
  • In the Buildingverse even the Sentient Cosmic Forces ship Sarah/Jareth, not to mention most of Jareth's family (his sisternote  and fathernote  in Roommates, his mother in Girls Next Doornote ); also Sarah ships Erik/Christine in GND, who sadly weren't meant to be.
