Added DiffLines:

** ''WesternAnimation/OKKOLetsBeHeroes'', being one giant love letter to Cartoon Network's old Hanna-Barbera originals, naturally gets in on the action. One episode even brings in WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanet to help stop an eco-terrorist plot, and another shows that ''Webcomic/RPGWorld'' takes place in the same universe.[[note]]Not only does it get to have an overlap with its inspiration studio, but with its own studio's history as well; series creator Ian Jones-Quartey was behind both this and ''OK K.O.!''.[[/note]]

* Since most of Fujio Akatsuka's works take place in and around Akatsuka Ward, characters from his series would pop in and out of each others' stories every once in a while. While ''Manga/OsomatsuKun'''s Matsuno brothers and Iyami were frequent targets of this, characters from ''Tensai Bakabon'' and ''Moretsu Ataro'' often made brief cameos as well.

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfHearts'' raises this to a gameplay element; scattered through the game are artifacts that let you summon characters from every previous ''VideoGame/TalesSeries'' game to perform an attack for you in battle, from [[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Arche]] to [[VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence Ruca and Iria]], and Caius and Rubia from the otherwise all but disowned ''Tales of the Tempest''.
