** Due to the prevalence of DefeatMeansFriendship the fandom mostly avoids this trope, but two characters who haven't done so are [[{{Ojou}} Kaguya]] and [[WhoWantsToLiveForever Mokou]], who are still highly antagonistic towards each other and spent the previous several centuries repeatedly killing each other. Kaguya/Mokou is still one of the most popular pairings in a very ship-happy fandom, ranging from TastesLikeDiabetes [[{{WAFF}} fluff]] all the way to [[ImmortalLifeIsCheap incredibly bloody]] [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence sadomasochism]].

* There is fanfiction set after ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'' and ''Film/{{Elektra}}'' where Elektra Natchios is shipped, not with her canon LoveInterest [[TheHero Matt Murdock]], but the assassin Bullseye. This ignores, or accepts, that Bullseye is not someone who's attraction Elektra reciprocates [[spoiler:since he killed her father and her]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/SheRaAndThePrincessesOfPower'', the canon enemies of Catra and Adora get this quite a bit. They have a very close relationship both before and after [[HeelFaceTurn Adora defects from the Horde]]. Many scenes center around Catra's feelings of betrayal, Adora's lingering feelings towards her, and how they were inseparable as children. The two of them even have a romantic dance together at Princess Prom (seen in the video examples below). All of this was intentional on the part of the show's creators; both Adora and Catra are presented as AmbiguouslyGay, having other flirty interactions with women besides each other. Their relationship has been described in official bios as "complicated."

Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Asian Animation]]
* ''Animation/PleasantGoatAndBigBigWolf'': Some people ship the two main rivals Weslie and Wolffy. There's even a fan-made manhua where they make love (it can't be linked here for various reasons).

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' fans frequently pair up [[ActionGirl Kim]] and [[DarkActionGirl Shego]] ([[PortmanteauCoupleName "KiGo"]]). It's most likely the second most popular couple in the fandom, right after the OfficialCouple Kim/Ron.

** Mabel/Pacifica was originally small, but after "The Golf War" where Mabel and Pacifica have a mini-golf competition, it has become popular.
*** There is also one of the most famous ship, Dipper/Pacifica, that was started from "Northwest Mansion Noir".

* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' fans love pairing Zim and Dib, usually revolving around their shared status as universally despised outcasts among their species. Much less popular is Zim/Tak and Dib/Tak, as while the pairings themselves are popular most of time in fics Tak just switches to the side of whomever she's boning.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': Though neither show an interest in each other in the series, Danny Phantom and Ember [=McLain=] are [[DatingCatwoman a popular ship]] in the fandom. WordOfGod has suggested Ember is secretly in love with Danny, [[{{Tsundere}} but denies such a thing]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'': The rivalry between Kagura and Sougo is a lot of one-upping, arguing, and teasing, with several punches thrown in for good measure. Despite never once showing any signs of a crush, fandom tends to see a more romantic version: one's a feisty hothead voiced by Creator/RieKugimiya, the other's a pretty boy sadist who can get the girls fawning all over him. [[SlapSlapKiss You do]] [[BelligerentSexualTension the math.]]


* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': [[KidHero Danny]]/[[VillainWithGoodPublicity Vlad]] is most likely the second most popular couple in the fandom, right after the although divisive OfficialCouple Danny/Sam, despite Vlad being [[UnequalPairing literally old enough to be Danny's dad]] (Vlad and Jack went to college together).

* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'': Season 5 seems to have produced the [[PortmanteauCoupleName Merdred]] ship, thanks to a no-longer-a-kid Mordred and the show's famous copious amounts of HoYay. And that scene in 5x02 in which Merlin helps Mordred with his cloak.

** Kimber and Stormer are the third biggest couples in the fandom - right after the OfficialCouple of Rio/Jerrica and officially one-sided couple of Riot/Jerrica - despite being from rival bands. Stormer is the TokenGoodTeammate of The Misfits and got along [[LesYay extremely well]] with Kimber in "The Bands Break Up" but you can't forget all the times she's nearly ''killed'' Kimber. It was made into AscendedFanon in [[ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms 2015 comic reboot]].
