** Although shipping can get serious the one couple everyone seems to be behind is Cisco and Laurel. Not only do they have similar powers, but there was genuine chemistry between them when they first met.
** [=SuperArrow=], aka Oliver Queen/Kara Danvers. It initially started out a meme, as a joke ship people supported in response to their widely hated official ships on their respective show. Then came ''Series/CrisisOnEarthX'', where it became an AscendedMeme when it turned out that their Earth-X counterparts were married. Oliver-X and Kara-X had more chemistry than Olicity and Karamel ever did, and after the infamous ending to the aforementioned crossover, people started shipping [=SuperArrow=] ''seriously''.
** Inverted in the case of Olicity. Olicity in general got hit with such a powerful degree of AbandonShipping that the fans eventually stopped caring about who Oliver ended up with, as long as it was anyone ''but'' Felicity. Ultimately, the writers of ''Arrow'' weren't willing to go back on the pairing after pouring so much time into it, so after Guggenheim and Mericle were given pink slips, they settled for trying to redeem the pairing as much as they could so it would at least be tolerated when it became the endgame ship.
