A character shrine generally refers to a small website dedicated to a single character. These were very common fanworks in online fandoms during the 1990s. Pairing shrines, devoted to a particular pairing, also exist.
A fan in 2006 asked: "Where ARE the character shrines? I haven't found any for my new fandoms: Dr. Who, Torchwood, SGA... Very odd. Maybe the time of character shrines has passed. Like the Jurassic Age. 
Some common characteristics of a character shrine are:
- A profile of the character, containing age, coloring, blood type, astrological sign and similar information
- Essays on the character's actions, attitude and motivations
- Discussion of the character's possible romantic relationships, both canonical and extra-canonical
- Screen captures or scans of the character, sometimes showing a specific event such as 'The Duncan's Tears Shrine'.
- Fanart or fanfic focusing on the character, or links to the same
- In TV/movie fandoms, information about the actor playing the character
- The Original Seiya/Starfighter Shrine 
- Raccoon Girl - A shrine to Kamiya Kaoru
- The Tasuki Shrine (archived)
- The Simon Shrine (The Sentinel)
- Star Riders - The Shrine of Alyt Neroon (Babylon 5)
- Nothing Personal (Atlantis: The Lost Empire)
- Puck Shrine (Gargoyles)
- Rogue: Shrine of the Green Goddess (X-Men)
