Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Shipping beyond all bounds of sanity. There are official couples, there are couples drawn from more-or-less subjective subtext, and there are clearly non-canon pairings that still kind of make sense... and then there are pairings that make you go "What?" Characters who are shipped together despite barely even having a relationship in canon. Sometimes they haven't even met in canon. Sometimes they don't even belong to the same 'verse (that's what Crossovers are for, after all) or to the same species. Sometimes they aren't even both carbon-based lifeforms.
Crack pairings range from the making-you-scratch-your-head-in-puzzlement weird, to the gouging-your-own-eyes-out-with-a-fork weird. But they always leave you asking "WHY WOULD ANYBODY THINK THESE TWO BELONGED TOGETHER?!" But interestingly, some fandoms don't have genuine crack pairings — it's true that they end up with Foe Yay and weirdness, but none of their pairings seem to freak people out. This can be down to a small cast, or any pairing seeming plausible by now.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Reasons for writing crack pairing fan works varies. It might be in order to clean up romantic loose ends by bringing together characters left alone, or to erase the memory of a particularly squicky canon pairing. They might be the result of people genuinely searching for a good personality match, or drawing parallels between two characters for whatever reason. A good number are the results of freeform roleplaying. Perhaps they took it on as a challenge to prove they could make it work. Or maybe they did it on a dare. Most often, though, the insanity itself is its own justification, especially to poke fun at more hardcore fans. It can get worryingly serious though... like they actually believe it could happen...
Occasionally, when a fanfic writer gets hold of a crack pairing and makes it convincing enough, that ship gains a following and can even become very popular. It's even been known to influence The Powers That Be.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })While crack pairings may show up in crack fics, the two are not necessarily related. A Crack Pairing could very well be treated in a dead serious and realistic way, just like a Crack Fic can be gen, or only about traditional pairings.
Note that when characters are given some kind of relationship, no matter how unhealthy, insane, or weird their relationship is, it's no longer a true crack pairing. Contrast with Ho Yay, Foe Yay, No Yay, May–December Romance, Old Man Marrying a Child, Interspecies Romance, Did You Just Romance Cthulhu?, Twincest, Brother–Sister Incest, and even Parental Incest for examples of ships which you may find weird but which are not crack pairings as long as they have basis in canon.
For an entire LJ community dedicated to particularly squicky crack pairings, behold VeryWrongSlash, which needs no further explanation.
If one wants to create his/her own Crack pairing (or just wants to see some pairings that may not yet have been added to this page), use the Brain-Hurting Pairer Generator.
See Crossover Ship for shipping characters who don't belong to the same verse. See Cargo Ship for shipping objects. Compare with Ships That Pass in the Night, which is closely related but isn't quite a subtrope, as it's not at all uncommon for ships that have little basis to be played seriously, due to fans filling in holes or reading into subtext to guess that they'd hit it off. Generally, a Crack Pairing is one that makes no sense even if you assume they do know each other.
Examples should be limited to specific stories, preferably with links, lest the page be overrun with every pairing that has ever crossed anybody's mind.
Warning! There is a strong possibility that you may feel disturbed when reading these examples. Have some Brain Bleach handy, just in case, and don't say we didn't warn you.

Ralph×Vanellope in Wreck-It Ralph simply because they are the two main characters. This is a bad case of pedophilia — Vanellope is a full nine-years-old. Most of said shippers try to justify this by giving Vanellope an "upgrade", making her look older and less jailbait-y.

Clark Ashton Smith, one of Lovecraft's frequent correspondents and another of the original Cthulhu Mythos writers, also produced a "family tree of the gods" (which can be found here). Also, in Lovecraft's story The Dunwich Horror, Yog-Sothoth (an omnipresent superbeing which appears as a mass of spheres) has two children with a human woman. Squicky.

RWBY:
In the canon of RWBY, Taiyang Xiao Long is the single father of two of the protagonists, while Cinder Fall is the Big Bad of the first three volumes (and also develops a personal grudge on Taiyang's younger daughter after she scars her face with magic eyes). In the noncanon spinoff RWBY Chibi, they're matched up by a dating site... the strangeness of which is in fact commented on in universe.
Flame's Shade pairs together Yang and Yatsuhashi, two characters who haven't even talked in canon. It also ships together Weiss and Pyrrha, which is less cracky but is still a stretch due to their limited interactions.
A Healing Scoop of WeissCream is an AU of volume 4 where Neo teams up with Weiss. It's also a Neo/Weiss fic.
RWBY: The Pink Lemonade Compendium is a dating fic that pairs Yang/Nora, Ruby/Blake, and Weiss/Pyrrha, all of which are a pairing of characters that had very little screen time together.

Les Misérables has multiple crack pairings for most of the characters who are younger than 30 years old by the end of the book, not even getting into the slash pairings among Les Amis del'ABC. The most common crack ship here is Enjolras/Eponine; never mind if Enjolras' only passion is his country, and Eponine is in love with someone else.

The Harry Potter fandom is full of them. Pretty much every conceivable (and inconceivable) pairing has been done. Doesn't matter how biologically impossible, how minor the characters, or if they qualify as "characters" at all. If it exists, it will be shipped. Even Hagrid/Dobby makes comparative sense when compared with pairings such as Dobby/Giant Squid, Hogwarts/Shrieking Shack (yes, the actual buildings), or Snape and his own nose.
My Immortal is the undisputed king of this. It includes Hermione/Neville, Snape/Lupin, and Voldemort/Hedwig.
Harry x Dementors is a thing. Archive of Our Own offers a few of them: [1]
Draco/Hermione is a fairly popular ship, even though they hate each other in canon and Draco even hoped Hermione had died in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Giant Squid/Hogwarts Castle. In other words, Squidwarts. Here's a link.
J. K. Rowling/Giant Squid fic.
Harry/Fawkes. Part of a larger fanfic called 'Twas Twisted.
There is another.
The Hogwarts Castle/The Shrieking Shack.
Kingsley/Percy. The fic Trouble in the Ministry also features some Draco/Ron, Remus/Arthur Weasley and Snape/Neville.
Harry/Hedwig has been done. By a writer called yamigirl121. A tribute, perchance?
It's been done by more than one person.
There is Dolores Umbridge/Margaret Thatcher slash fiction: here.
Ladies and Gentlemen, may I introduce you to Hermione/Sorting Hat(warning: very disturbing! No really.)
Or perhaps Dobby/Sorting Hat.
Dobby/Hagrid. Warning: This might be the most disturbing thing you will EVER read.
Try Dumbledore/Mrs. Norris. Added bit of horror when you think about what the elder wand looks like.
The Dangerverse Alternate Universe series has mostly canon and OC pairings, but also contains Charlie/Tonks and Draco/Luna.
When Daniel Radcliffe hosted SNL they did a Harry Potter sketch set ten years into the future where Hagrid marries Luna.
From Mock the Week, "Unlikely Lines from the Final Harry Potter Book".
German fanfiction author Ramuthra has a penchant for these, as examplified by her various oneshots, which range from Snape/Neville to Dudley/Luna, Grindlewald/Marge Dursley and Goyle/Harry.
3 Slytherin Marauders has Snape/Rosemerta the barmaid, Lucius Malfoy/Petunia Dursley, Dudley Dursley/Padma Patil, and the young Tom Riddle from the diary/Nymphadora Tonks.
There was one fic that paired Ginny/Lavender with Buckbeak. And they got pregnant. Squick at its finest.
There is a thriving Ron/Ginny sub section of the fandom.
Tom Riddle x Sirius Black
Harry/Marcus Flint.
Violence Inherent in the System, in addition to its crossover main pairing, shipped a brought-back-to-life Moaning Myrtle with Dennis Creevey.
Uzumaki Harry has Harry/Moaning Myrtle and Harry/Cat Girl!Hermione
Ron/Millicent Bulstrode in Knowledge Is Power, and arguably Lupin/Professor Sprout.4
A Very Potter Musical features Lily/Cedric. They found each other in the afterlife.

The Dark Knight Rises has Bane/CIA - as in, Bane and the nameless CIA agent at the start of the movie. This mostly arose from /tv/'s obsession with the scene in question, to the point of making videos celebrating the two's love, and that the CIA agent is played by beloved TV star Aidan Gillen.

Jeff Parker's Thunderbolts run has lots of hints of Moonstone / Man-Thing. Note that the former is a human Manipulative Bastard while the latter is a swamp monster that will burn anything that feels too much fear near it. Man-Thing used to be human but that doesn't reduce the Squick factor much. The weirdest part is that it actually manages to come off as kind of sweet.

In The Annotated Series, the riffers often pair up characters that they feel are suffering from Relationship Writing Fumble. The results range from kind of sensible to laughably insane:
Their most infamous and popular ship is easily King Hippo/Eggplant Wizard, based on the two being a Bumbling Henchmen Duo in Captain N: The Game Master. Worse yet, there's actually a stunning amount of evidence for it in canon.
When they riffed Darkstalkers, they shipped Henry (a 10-year old boy), Felicia (an adult catperson), and Morrigan (a succubus and one of the main villains) together as a parodic One True Threesome. This makes their other Darkstalkers ship (Pyron/the AI in Pyron's spaceship) look downright sane by comparison.
Their riff of Archie's Weird Mysteries has them shipping Betty and Veronica as a pair of closeted lesbians. This one's notable in that they shipped it largely out of spite; the riffers despised the infamous Betty/Veronica/Archie Love Triangle so much that they refused to accept Archie getting either of them.

Homestuck takes this Up to Eleven: the odd pairings supported by canon are numerous, and the pairings contained in fanworks are even more so. Homestuck's shipping chaos even includes art drawn by the author himself depicting the pairing◊ of Cal and Colonel Sassacre. (Better known as Sassacal.)
Many pairings that would have seemed like a Crack Pairing initially actually became canon (or at least had enough evidence that the story could clearly have been going that way at one point.) Examples include PM / Jack, Jack / Karkat, and Tezeri / Gamzee. Even Vriska / John—which was teased relentlessly and was sort-of canon for a while—would have seemed like a Crack Pairing when Vriska was first introduced, given that she was a mass-murdering backstabbing psychopath in another universe. Snowman / Spades Slick was canon, and her first introduction was her stabbing him in the eye. Although, a great majority of the ships listed here are actually based on hate (due to the romance system explained below); so violence is actually considered Ship Tease by the fandom.
Made even crazier by the fact that trolls have four different kinds of romance (explained here). This means you can pair one character off with multiple others and not have it be adultery, and that a very wide variety of things can become shipping fodder.
The trolls' dancestors (alternate-universe versions of their ancestors) have been encountered. Eridan/Cronus is one example that's canon-supported.
In canon, the aforementioned Colonel Sassacre was married to Betty Crocker, who in Homestuck is/was apparently the Troll Empress.
John and Gamzee. In one flash (which is mostly a humorous montage of random scenes in Homestuck, some old and some new), scribble versions of John and Gamzee kiss, and right after, a scene from a few acts prior is shown, with Jane making a weird face thinking "What the fuck?".
As one of the bonuses for the Homestuck Kickstarter, people who bought a certain reward tier were given two random embroidered patches associated with two random characters. According to the author of the comic, the pairing associated with the two random patches you receive "is your officially designated OTP". Naturally, this could result in the donor being locked into some pretty weird matchups like Jane/Eridan or Equius/Calliope, officially, forever.
Roxy/Dirk's Auto-Responder is actively referred to, by Dirk's Auto-Responder, as this.
"Laundry". Bro/Redglare (Terezi's ancestor).
Eridan/Roxy is somewhat popular due to their common interest in wizards.
This ships John/Meenah. There's a Running Gag in-comic in which every time John meets Meenah she impales him on her trident.
Multiple people ended up creating either crack pairing generators or fics entirely dedicated to crack pairings, one per chapter.

In DC Nation, Word of God states the entire in-game universe came about due to a crack ship. The universe started as a varient strand of Hypertime (the old DC concept of a multi-verse) that kept attracting variences and it was easy for characters to find themselves in alternate realities. Starfire found a lover in one of these off-shoot realities and brought him home. The lucky gent is a version of Hugo Weaving who had been fated to die in a car accident, but instead ended up in the equivalent of multi-verse's train stop cafe. After he arrived, the universe threw up its proverbial hands trying to make this strand of reality fit with mainline DC, thus creating its own world. (It also makes all those comic book movies that much more amusing to the players.)

Their riff of Archie's Weird Mysteries has them shipping Betty and Veronica as a pair of closeted lesbians. This one's notable in that they shipped it largely out of spite; the riffers despised the infamous Betty/Veronica/Archie Love Triangle so much that they refused to accept Archie getting either of them.

The Disney Ducks Comic Universe gives us the surprisingly popular Magicstone ship, which is to say, Scrooge's magical nemesis Magica De Spell and Donald's supernaturally lucky cousin Gladstone Gander. Fanfic of the two usually involves Magica kidnapping Gladstone in an attempt to weaponize his luck to get Scrooge's #1 Dime, but then they develop feelings for each other that they're both too caustic to act on.

The pairing of Tony Stark and Steve Rogers is a popular one among fans of yaoi, which often includes them as the adoptive parents of Peter Parker. Yes, we're serious.
They are actually married in Earth-3490 continuity where Tony was born as a woman (as Natasha Antonia "Toni" Stark). Due to this, there was no Civil War on that Earth.
Understandable when you consider the comics versions of Cap and Iron Man, who share considerable moments of Ho Yay together (they're even the page image for it). However, most depictions of this arrangement use the Marvel Cinematic Universe and The Amazing Spider Man Series incarnations, in which the first two are depicted as a pair of honest-to-goodness Headbutting Heroes, while the latter has basically been Exiled from Continuity.

Ménage à 3 has a cast mostly consisting of good-looking people, many of them bisexual, and Everybody Has Lots of Sex.

The Lord of the Rings:
Thanks to the groundbreaking work of the stupendous◊Phobs, Melkor x Sauron (or, as it is otherwise known, Angbang) is now all the rage with Tolkien fanartists. And it is◊ beautiful◊.
Treebeard/Bill the Pony. In horrific detail, at that.
Legolas/Treebeard. No, really.
Somewhere on Adultfanfiction.net a author has written two fics about a relationship between Faramir and Shagrat (an Uruk and captain of the guard of Cirith Ungol, the one who found Frodo in Shelob's lair). Actually, very well written.
Merry/Pippin/Treebeard and someone's horse/Treebeard.
A tongue-in-cheek theory cropped up in certain circles that the true identity of the Witch-King of Angmar was actually Tar-Míriel, the last Queen of Númenor. Not long after the theory was formed, people began shipping her with Éowyn.
Glorfindel/Erestor. Who's Erestor? He's an elf at the Council of Elrond, apparently the master of Elrond's house, who has about five lines in the whole book. His only contribution to the discussion is suggesting giving it to Tom Bombadil, which Gandalf and Glorfindel shoot down as a bad idea. However, between Erestor being an easy O.C. Stand-in (since all we know is that he's a fairly important elf), the fandom's love of elven nobles and courtly drama, and a desire to give an Ensemble Dark Horse a love interest that didn't get in the way of any other pairings, it became Glorfindel's default ship. This isn't a small ship, either; on Archive of Our Own, it's in fifth place for book canon fics, going above canon pairings like Éowyn/Faramir and Elrond/Celebrian, and even outclassing popular gay pairings with main characters and some level of canon support like Aragorn/Legolas, Aragorn/Boromir, or Merry/Pippin. Not bad for two characters so minor that they were Adapted Out of the movies.

Silencio has this as a Running Gag that basically anyone that Taylor-as-Marceau interacts with in public will be shipped with her/him. While most of these are just misunderstandings, the official couples include Taylor/Amy (a Fan-Preferred Couple, but they don't interact much in canon and have incompatible orientations), Grue/Purity (not only do their powers oppose, but Purity is older than Grue and is a former member of a white supremacist organization, while Grue is black), and Cricket/Parian (Cricket is an Empire 88 cape, Parian is a civilian fashion designer whose only interaction with the Empire in the fic is beating a few capes up with a stuffed gorilla).

"Oncest" is perhaps the most infamous thing to come out of The Lorax, a pairing between the Once-Ler, the Villain Protagonist of the film's flashback portions, and... the Once-Ler again, after he went Jumping Off the Slippery Slope. More or less, it was the result of a character who had a major-league Estrogen Brigade immediately after the film's release, but also didn't have any good shipping options (and the fandom didn't care about any of the other characters in the film anyway), along with askblog culture being pretty significant at the time. Notably, it's not just a ship with a few followers, but a full-fledged Fan-Preferred Couple, and probably the first thing anyone remembers about the film's fandom.

In The Lion King 1½, Timon canonically proposes to Shenzi in a last-ditch attempt to keep her distracted. She, like Pumbaa, Banzai and Ed, is utterly repulsed by the idea. However, it spawned no end of videos, fanfics and art that take the idea more seriously.

A common crack pairing in the Thor fandom is Loki/Darcy Lewis. Probably helps that they're both deadpan snarkers.
Steve Rogers/Darcy Lewis is inexplicably popular in fic as well, despite the fact that they've never shared a scene—or been in the same movie.note Chris Evans' brief appearance in the second Thor film doesn't count as he was playing Loki shapeshifted to look like Steve

Warhammer 40,000 has an entire fandom based on Taldeer the Eldar and LIIVII the human cybernetic assassin. A self-acknowledged blasphemy to the setting of the series (not to mention half the pairing is an Original Character), yet a Guilty Pleasure to many. It's even gotten a Fandom Nod or two.
Apparently not completely blasphemy, as there are some old 2nd edition rule books describing a half-Eldar. Of course, 2nd edition has been almost entirely retconned by now...
The above could still never compare to the Macha/Emperor of Mankind ship that was spawned later, especially considering the whole thing is based on the Memetic Mutation that despite Macha's good looks she will never get laid, ever. It even spun out into the pairing of "Macha/a Callidus Assassin who screwed Macha while shapeshifted as the Emperor." Macha/Gabriel Angelos also picked up some steam, despite them being enemies turned uneasy and temporary allies.
In a similar vein to Love Can Bloom, there have been fans who ship Primarch Roboute Guilliman and Yvraine, the Herald of Ynnead (Eldar god of the dead). The fact that Yvraine helped heal Guilliman of Fulgrim's poison and the Eldar are mostly allying with the Imperium has added fuel to the fire despite the lore violation this would be.

Corporal/Classified is probably the strangest shipping you will ever find in the Madagascar fandom. Which is even weirder when you realize it kinda works... arguably, of course. Especially considering Classified clinging onto Corporal as they're forced to go through Dave's death trap and their dynamic. note Classified is the workaholic leader while Corporal is the laid-back sweetheart.

When they riffed Darkstalkers, they shipped Henry (a 10-year old boy), Felicia (an adult catperson), and Morrigan (a succubus and one of the main villains) together as a parodic One True Threesome. This makes their other Darkstalkers ship (Pyron/the AI in Pyron's spaceship) look downright sane by comparison.

Disney World of War has many crack ships, mainly because it is a massive crossover of the Disney Classics and Pixar. Some crack ships that are canon are Pangel (Patch from 101 Dalmatians and Angel from Lady and the Tramp 2), Scatani (Scamp from Lady and the Tramp 2 and Vitani from Lion King 2) and Berlielle (Berlioz from the Aristocats and Danielle from Lady and the Tramp 2).
The biggest crack ship, bordering on outright Squick, is Sarafina (Lion King)/ Reuben (Lilo and Stitch). There has been many debates on whether this is the work of a Troll or if Sarafina's player is just bonkers.

Fantasy of Utter Ridiculousness gives us several:
The first is Jamie and Patchouli. One's a deadbeat slacker who snarks at almost everything going on around him and brings nothing worthwhile to the table, while the other's a century-old, chronically ill youkai magician.
Patchouli's assistant Koakuma objected rather heavily to her boss getting involved with Jamie, but later—in a move that makes even less sense—gets distracted by the Jersey City junkman Goat, who doesn't have much of a life himself.

The Archie Archie Comics' Sonic the Hedgehog comics had a joke scene where Omega acted like he was practically falling in love with Blaze after he saw her using her fire powers to blow stuff up (which also acted as his Funny Moment). Ian Flynn said that this was just a joke and there wasen't any possible relationship there. Unfortunately for Flynn, the fans fell in love with it. For context, Omega (full name E-123 Omega) is one of Dr. Eggman's robots bent on revenge against the doc, and Blaze the Cat is a princess from a dimension on turmoil with no time for romance. Archie would later publish a Valentine's Day varient cover◊ that depicted characters from the series, asking readers "Who do YOU ship?". A pre-drawn line already connects Omega to Blaze, much to her chagrin.
In an interview concerning the then-upcoming crossover between the Sonic comic and Archie's own Mega Man comic, Kotaku asked Flynn if there's "any animal/human kissing in the crossover". Flynn answered, "Yes. Hot Amy-on-Wily action." He, of course, admitted he was kidding.

Warrior Cats is a crack-spawning machine:
The most obvious example is JayfeatherxStick, which even has its own ship name. Other notable ones include Female!RowanclawxMale!Rowanclaw, Hollyleafxwarrior code, JayfeatherxBrightheart, Ashfurx Scourge, and many more.
Warriors Rewrite implies that Ravenpaw and Smudge might be attracted to one another. In canon, the two haven't met. Smudge isn't even a Clan cat.

Homestar Runner has a huge, active shipping community despite being a cartoon with a somewhat small main cast and a running gag about having "only one girl". Alluded to canonically here, with the pair being Marzipan x The Cheat. In the SBemail "montage", Strong Bad has a romance with a wagon full of pancakes. Another SBemail, "record book," had a "Cutest Couple" record, which went to Bubs. Just Bubs.

The MLP Loops: Considering the infinite varieties of "Groundhog Day" Loop the universe is going through, these are inevitable.
At one point Twilight wakes up married to Luna... who is a stallion. Like most variant loops, this kinda makes sense if you squint. Twilight's adoptive daughter Nyx (biological daughter in this variant) is a chibi version of Luna's Superpowered Evil Side, making her technically Luna's daughter too—though they normally treat each other as sisters.
In one "Daughters" loop (where Twilight is the mother of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, who are all princesses), Twilight realizes that Discord is their father. And she really wishes that the loop memories were less detailed.
For real examples between loopers, Trixie and Chrysalis stand out. They met a grand total of once in the show, Chrysalis was a villain, and they didn't even really interact with each other. Here, after Chrysalis starts looping, Trixie offers her some comfort to get over an impossible crush on Shining Armor, and then thousands of years later they're still together.
During the I Never game, it comes out that Fluttershy hooked up with Link when he briefly looped into Equestria.
Likewise during the I Never, Sweetie Bell reveals that she had sex with Sauron. Yes, that Sauron. He wasn't evil in this loop because Sweetie had already redeemed his father, but still. Not to mention that he was technically her adopted brother.

Fans of Don't Hug Me I'm Scared seem to be fond of "Padlock", the ship between the notepad from the first song in the series and the clock from the second song in the series.

IDW’s Transformers comics seem to inspire a ton of these, not helped by the fact that the franchise in general has a long history of it. The most notable are probably Rodimus/Thunderclash (Rodimus hates Thunderclash in canon to the point of being happy when he seemed to die), Tarn/Windblade (they aren’t even aware of each other’s existence and are opposed on every possible level), and Tarn/Pharma (their only interaction was Tarn driving Pharma to insanity through blackmail and psychological torture). Also not helping matters is the fact that the comics feature an awful lot of canon Crack Pairings that could probably never happen in any other continuity (Onslaught/Blast-Off, Cyclonus/Tailgate, Sparkstalker/Lightbright, etc.), as well as a few canon pairings that would be Crack if not for the fact that the characters never really had established personalities and relationships before (Chromedome/Rewind, Needlenose/Horri-Bull, etc.), and thus there was nothing saying they couldn’t be an item.
