A Juggernaut Ship is a relationship that is so extremely popular within a fandom that it dwarfs all other pairings in the amount of fanworks produced. It could also be considered the majority pairing within a fandom.

In LiveJournal fandom in recent years, the juggernaut ship is likely to be a white male/male (slash) one.[1] This phenomenon is also known as White Cock. Sometimes the predominance of a particular ship makes other fans feel left out and bitter, leading to wank.

An extremely popular fandom (aka The Fandom That Ate Fandom) may also be a juggernaut; for example Harry Potter.
