Ello! Thought I kickstart a Ships Happen refernece list. Any info you can contribute would be loved.

When helping me with a reference, please provide an evidence link ;v;

User Image Ships Happen - The RIG artwork references the Tumblr Dashboard

User Image O-Tea-P - References the term "OTP" meaning "one true pairing"

User Image Equine Broseph comes from the term "Brony", fans of My Little Pony

User Image Hatofowl - The dating sim "hatoful boyfriend" where one dates pidgeons

User Image Master Of The Universe - references both He-Man and This video

User Image Oppa Style - references "Oppa Gangnam Style", a Korean k-pop song

User Image
Princess Of The World - Refences Hatsune Miku's song "World Is Mine".

User Image Sweetest Petshop - references the Littlest Petshop toyline as well as Pancake Bunny

User Image Ai no Taisen -
This one references Hatsune Miku's "Love is War" song.

User Image References the Red String Of Fate

User Image Spellbound Shonen - References Syaoran from Cardcaptor Sakura, the description says "The suffering I get for listening to things that look like stuffed animals!" references Keroberos (stuffed flying lion) who Syao often picks on.

User Image Super Level Academy - References Ibuko Mioda from Dangan Ronpa.

User Image Admirable Antagonist - references the "anti-hero" archetype, Possibly references Fire Lord Zuko from Avatar The Last Airbender.

User ImageGuretera's Witch- is an Ib/Witch's House reference.

It's a combo of two popular indie horror games right now. The frame and the rose petals are a reference to Ib, where you get trapped in an art gallery and your health meter is a rose. Antagonists are paintings within the gallery.

And the storyline of Witch's House is there was a lonely girl who wanted friends. Turns out? She was a witch. s**t goes downhill from there as the house attempts to murder you

User Image Happy End - Possible reference to Yuno Gasai from Future Diary

User Image
Soundtrack of Love - reference to Olly Murs - Heart Skips A Beat

User Image User Image Balthasar the Bloody and Priscilla the Perfect - References "Mary Sues" and how they tend to be perfect, have more than one hair colour, have tend to be more than one race/species (halfbloods for example).

User Image Starish item refers to Uta no Prince-sama, the idol group that is formed, St☆rish

User Image Foe x Foe - name reference to Hunter x Hunter and the term "foeyay"/hateship when you ship two enemies together


User Image A New Year possibly references Rise from Persona 4, note the hair and how she refers to you as "sempai". It also comes from the tumblr meme "I hope sempai notices me" which caught fire quickly and spread.

User Image Rabu Rabu Bicycle - Refers to the fandom term "bicycle" a character that they ship with everyone because "everyone gets to ride them".

I'm pretty sure that red heart thread thing is based on a junji ito comic.
But maybe not.

Spellbound Shonen seems to me like it's referencing Syaoran (or whatever his name is) from CardCaptor Sakura.

But I can't be sure.

Well, the description says something about not taking advice from a thing that looks like a stuffed animal. And Sakura's little lion chibi thing...?

Anyway. That was just the first thing to come to mind when I saw it. I don't know a lot about anime anymore, so there's no certainty. No need to add it.
