* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption2'':
** TeamDad Hosea spends most of Chapter 2 & 3 coaxing John into trying to form a real relationship with Abigail. He’s very proud once John actually starts doing it in Chapter 4. Though given that it’s a {{Prequel}} and they’re very HappilyMarried come the time of the [[VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption first]] game , this is a bit of a ForegoneConclusion.
** When Arthur goes and rescues his OldFlame’s brother from a turtle-worshiping {{Cult}}, one of the first things he asks if that means they’re back together.

Added DiffLines:

* Scorpion/Hanzo Hasashi in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat11'' of all people is quite supportive of his surrogate son Takeda and Jacqui's relationship. Most of his pre-fight dialogue with Jacqui and Jax shows him treating the Briggs family with respect and declaring any enemies of the Briggs become the Shirai Ryu's enemies as well.


** At the end of the ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2Remake'' [[spoiler: Sherry asks if Leon and Claire are boyfriend and girlfriend, Leon tells Sherry that [[HesNotMyBoyFriend he only met Claire the previous night]], though Claire with a telling look says if they were going out "[[ZombieApocalypse that would've been helluva first date]]". Sherry undaunted asks if Leon and Claire can adopt her, the whole exchange [[SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming is very sweet]] but it's also kinda heart breaking if you remember Sherry just [[ParentalAbandonment lost]] her MadScientist parents so in [[ShippingGoogles Sherry’s mind]] Claire and Leon being together is perfect [[ParentalSubstitute for her]].]]

** Luis from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' despite leching on Ashley earlier still supported Leon looking after her, saying Leon is better with the ladies.
** Sheva and Excella (''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'') and Jessica (''VideoGame/ResidentEvilRevelations'') suggest to Chris that his feelings for Jill is more than just comradeship, which Chris stoically denies in true ChasteHero fashion.


Added DiffLines:

*** In the same game Leon despite butting heads with Jake when he meets him and Sherry, still gives an approving smile when he sees Jake protect her.


** The ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar'' mangas bring up several of these, too. In the Oosawa manga [[HappilyMarried Ethlyn, Quan]] and [[ActionGirl Ayra]] ship [[KnightInShiningArmor Finn]] with [[spoiler:Lachesis]], while [[WhiteMagicianGirl Adean]] ships [[spoiler: her UnluckyChildhoodFriend Azelle with his ''other'' female friend [[{{Bokukko}} Tailtiu]]]], and [[CoolBigSis Annand]] ships [[BlowYouAway Lewyn]] with her little sister [[LadyOfWar Erinys]]. OTOH, in the Fujimori version [[{{Trickster}} Dew]] ships Adean ''hard'' with her bodyguard [[HorseArcher Midir]].

** In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'', Helena makes it clear that she knows there is [[DatingCatwoman ''something'']] between Leon and Ada. She tries to get him to open up to her about his feelings for Ada, and when this fails, tries to encourage him to leave her behind in order to go after Ada. In the closing scene of the game, Helena returns Ada's compact to Leon for when he sees "her" again.

* ''[[VideoGame/AmnesiaOtome Amnesia: Memories]]'' plays with this when it comes to Orion shipping the heroine with each route's boyfriend. She's already dating the boyfriend in the route, but the titular memory-loss leads to Orion initially wondering [[WhatDoesSheSeeInHim how and why the two are together]]. When Orion realizes that the boyfriend is genuine with his feelings towards the heroine, he's doubly motivated to get the heroine's memories back and see those two off into a happily continuing relationship.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', Ventus apparently ships Terra and Aqua in the Japanese version, as when Scrooge [=McDuck=] invites him to Disney Town and tells him to bring his parents, he brings Terra and Aqua. In the English version, this was changed to Scrooge telling him to bring "two grown-ups".

* Various party members will eventually become this for the Warden and his/her chosen LoveInterest in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. Wynne, in particular, initially expresses misgivings but in time changes her mind in support of the relationship. Morrigan, if her approval rating is high enough, may engage the Warden in a playful discussion about the matter; it's especially moving and also touching if the Warden is female and romancing Alistair - whom Morrigan otherwise loathes.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Merrill actively ships Hawke with any of their chosen Love Interests, while Isabela threatens a Hawke romancing Merrill with grievous harm if they hurt her (if female) or cutting [[GroinAttack their balls off]] (if male). She also apparently writes erotic "Friend-fiction" in her spare time; Varric finds it hilarious.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition,'' various NPC people hanging around in Skyhold's throne room will make shippy comments when the Inquisitor and his/her chosen love interest confirm their relationship. The remarks will vary depending on exactly what's happening in the romance.
** If his friendship is maxed, Dorian becomes very much a ShipperOnDeck for a female Inquisitor and Cullen, noting that he finds their relationship "adorable." Sera also seems to find it amusing, judging by her comments to the Inquisitor about "your Cullen-wullen."
** A male Inquisitor may approach Blackwall for dating advice, and Blackwall's supportive responses suggest that he is a very quiet ShipperOnDeck for his boss and the target of his affections.
** No matter who the Inquisitor romances, a number of the companions have become this by the time of the ''Trespasser'' epilogue. Cassandra has an adorably clumsy conversation in which she tries to give them advice about marriage (which is even funnier if the Inquisitor romanced ''her''). Vivienne sets up a spa day for the Inquisitor, and during the event will ask how the relationship is going and offer kindly remarks. Sera's diary in the tavern will contain at least one reference to the romance; it's downright hilarious if [[spoiler:the female Inquisitor marries Cullen.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'' has [[NinjaMaid Sharon Kreuger]] and [[DirtyOldMan Gwyn Reinford]] shipping Alisa, their little sister and granddaughter respectively, to [[TheHero Rean Schwarzer]] and thoroughly ask Rean as to how far the two of them have gotten.
