** The fandom in general '''hates''' Neptune and his [[TheCasanova casanova]] ways, decrying all his ships except "Sea Monkeys" (a HoYay ship that pairs him with his best friend Sun). Ships like "Iceberg" (Weiss/Neptune) and "Combat Goggles" (Yang/Neptune) receive little support as a result.

** There is also a Shipping War between "Bumblebee" (Yang Xiao Long/Blake Belladonna) and "Eclipse" or "Black Sun" (Sun Wukong/Blake Belladonna) after the Volume 3 finale [[spoiler:had Adam refer to Yang as someone Blake loves and Yang act heartbroken after being abandoned by Blake]]. This gave hope to the shippers of Bumblebee, one of the most popular fan pairings, that they could actually beat out the seemingly obvious canon of Black Sun. Unfortunately, this lead to fans on both sides getting very defensive over their ship's chances and absolutely hating the other. Tensions rose when a volume 4 song "Like Morning follows Night" was released with the focus on Blake and Sun's relationship. Things get worse when the Volume 4's soundtrack contains a love song called "Bmblb", which is clearly titled with Blake and Yang's ship in mind, that hints to be written from Yang's perspective about Blake. However, the song was not originally intended for the show or soundtrack, but was added last minute as an injury delayed the release of Volume 4's soundtrack, allowing time to compose the song. Unsurprisingly this clarification has only poured more fuel into the fire.

** The Shipping War that erupted after the events of "End of the Beginning" between the "Arkos" (Jaune Arc/Pyrrha Nikos) and the "Lancaster" (Jaune Arc/Ruby Rose) pairings. The end of "End of the Beginning" had [[spoiler:Pyrrha kissing Jaune and then dying at the hands of Cinder Fall]], leading to the "Arkos" pairing to suffer a ShipSinking. Many of those connected to that ship bailed over to "Lancaster" as a response. However, despite this, many "Arkos" shippers are still defiant that their ship is still viable, that [[spoiler:she's not dead]], and that those who went over to "Lancaster" are traitors to the ship.
** Less brutally, Lancaster (as the current leading ship for Ruby and Jaune) is generally targeted by every other Ruby-related ship, most notably White Rose (Ruby/Weiss) and Nuts and Dolts (Ruby/Penny). Unlike with Arkos, Season 3's events had no effect on Nuts and Dolts, largely because ''nobody'' believes that [[spoiler: Penny's dead for keeps]].
