** Moore's ''ComicBook/{{Providence}}'' is an attempt to do this for all of Creator/HPLovecraft's story or at least the different cycles. Much like ''League of Extraordinary Gentlemen'', Moore is using Lovecraft's fiction to merge different stories and events into a single coherent verse. This includes ''Cool Air, The Horror at Red Hook, The Shadow over Innsmouth, The Dunwich Horror, The Color Out of Space, The Dreams at the Witch-House, The Thing on the Doorstep''.

* The [[Franchise/TheDCU DC]] and [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse Marvel]] universes were born from this trope; originally, the titles published by each company did not overlap, but over time, cameos, {{Crossover}}s, and inside references combined to form the comic books into one big, interconnected web. That's not even counting the Amalgam universe.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'' Jay Sherman once showed up to judge the ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' Springfield Film Festival, though Matt Groening was so against the idea that he took his name off the opening credits for that episode.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'' Jay Sherman once showed up to judge the ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' Springfield Film Festival, though Matt Groening was so against the idea that he took his name off the opening credits for that episode. The welding is a bit awkward, since it's established that ''The Simpsons'' are a cartoon in Jay's world, but he appears twice more in Springfield. -->'''Jay:''' ''(in a straightjacket)'' It stinks! It stinks! It stinks! -->'''Springfield psychiatrist:''' Yes, Mr. Sherman. Everything stinks.

* The ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise started off with only the Universal Century timeline under the auspices of creator Creator/YoshiyukiTomino. When he stepped away from the franchise in 1993, Sunrise introduced the concept of {{Alternate Universe}}s to allow new creators to explore their vision of Gundam without creating a ContinuitySnarl, resulting in the [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Future Century]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing After Colony]], and [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX After War]] timelines. Then Tomino returned for the 20th anniversary and created ''Anime/TurnAGundam'', set in the Correct Century timeline, which was eventually revealed to be the DistantFinale of ''all'' of Gundam, including the [=AUs=]. Afterwards came more Alternate Universes ([[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Cosmic Era]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Anno Domini]], and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE Advanced Generation]]), with WordOfGod confirming that they're part of the timeline created by ''Turn A'' as well. Tomino's latest work, ''Anime/GundamReconguistaInG'', takes place in the Regult Century timeline, which is explicitly stated in-series as being the era that came after the end of the Universal Century. The sole exception to the rule is ''Anime/GundamBuildFighters'', which takes place in a TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture setting where ''Gundam'' is a popular anime franchise. Presumably the same applies to ''Anime/ModelSuitGunplaBuildersBeginningG'', which is ''Build Fighters''[='=] SpiritualPrecursor.

** Mind, Marvel started this with the first issue of ''ComicBook/SpiderMan''. And even before that, Marvel started this 21 years earlier in the Timely Comics era, when Human Torch faced off against {{Namor}} the Submariner for the first time. They teamed a few more times over the next few years, and some of the less prominent characters occasionally got involved. Then, in 1946, Timely launched the All-Winners Squad, teaming up existing characters like ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, the Human Torch, and the Sub-Mariner (among others).

** Dredd has also had crossovers with other ''2000 AD'' strips whenever the writers felt like it, most notably ''StrontiumDog'' and the story Helter Skelter (where Creator/GarthEnnis basically crossed ALL his favourite strips over with Dredd).

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' have already been listed, but deserve special mention here; in the '80s, it was broadly hinted that the original cartoon shared a universe with the ''GIJoe'' cartoon, and not-quite-as-broadly that the same was true for ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Inhumanoids}}''[[note]]''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends My Little Pony]]'' was close to being the same universe with a couple scenes scrapped from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie''.[[/note]]. This has been taken much further in the 21st century, where not only were the previous hints confirmed, but now ''every'' Hasbro cartoon from the time period has been stated to be part of the same universe, and pretty much every other Hasbro property exists within the Transformers multiverse. ** Even more extreme, thanks to Hasbro acquiring the IP to the characters '''[[WesternAnimation/ChallengeOfTheGoBots the Go-Bots]]''', one of the ''Transformers'' franchise's most infamous rivals, are now part of the TF multiverse. Further, the official fan club's long-running comic storyline and some new toys mean that Hasbro has pretty much retconned the Go-Bots into being just another ''Transformers'' show, with the Go-Bots having their own universal designation (something reserved for actual TF series) and Gobotron being retroactively declared as an alternate form of Primus.
