* Creator/HannaBarbera did this with the "Council of Doom" storyline in ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost and [[WesternAnimation/DinoBoyInTheLostValley Dino Boy]]'' (the only time no Dino Boy shorts were included), with Space Ghost eventually meeting ''WesternAnimation/{{Birdman}}'', ''WesternAnimation/TheGalaxyTrio'', ''[[WesternAnimation/MobyDickHannaBarbera Moby Dick]]'', ''WesternAnimation/MightyMightor'', ''Shazan'', and ''WesternAnimation/TheHerculoids''. Sometimes, the Cartoon Network (and later, Boomerang) would show the whole thing.

* Invoked in-universe in ''Anime/ReCreators'', where in order to empower the [[RefugeeFromTVLand Creations]] against [[BigBad Altair]], the government formulates a plan to have their creators make a crossover event film in which the characters join forces to defeat Altair due to the fact that the Creations' power-ups rely on the [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve general public to accept and embrace them]].

* ''Worlds Collide'' (1994): This was a major DC Comics[=/=]Creator/MilestoneComics crossover, which had to be handled carefully, since the DC characters were comics in the Milestone universe. It was a scintillating series in that the differences between similar characters such as {{Superman}} and ComicBook/{{Icon}} were examined. Perhaps the most entertaining was the relationship between Comicbook/{{Hardware}} and ComicBook/{{Steel}}, who had the same abilities and skills, but were on opposite sides of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. Since then, Milestone was folded into the DC universe, which seems even more poignant after the passing of DwayneMcDuffie.

* The now-defunct EclipseComics got into the act with ''Total Eclipse'', written by Marv Wolfman. The story involved a villain named Zzed[sic], who was born many millenia ago during an event called the Total Eclipse (all the planets and moons of the Solar System aligned with thousands of planets, moons and stars across the galaxy). As a result, he has been [[WhoWantsToLiveForever cursed with immortality]], and seeks only his own death, which he can only achieve by destroying all creation. [[OmnicidalManiac He has no problem with that at first.]] Unique in being the only CrisisCrossover to feature appearances by Miracle Man, ComicBook/{{Airboy}}, Ms. Tree and Beanish of ''Tales of the Beanworld''.

When a comic slaps a big, visible "Crisis Crossover" logo on the cover, but only has a token ShoutOut to the Big Event that only peripherally affects the plot of the issue in question, that's a RedSkiesCrossover. When a {{Crossover}} occurs that involves a couple of characters and their support, but doesn't necessarily affect the large universe, it's a BatFamilyCrossover. When the various sets of characters do not interact with each other but still deal with a universal threat, it's a CrossThrough.

* ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'' (2009): Following on from the events of the epic ''ComicBook/SinestroCorpsWar'' storyline that [[EnsembleDarkhorse proved to be infinitely more popular]] than the Countdown event that was happening at the same time.) the culmination of a prophecy first mentioned in an Creator/AlanMoore penned back-up strip in "Tales of the [[GreenLantern Green Lantern Corps]]" back during the 80s. The best way to describe it is as SpaceOpera [[XMeetsY meets]] ZombieApocalypse. As dead super heroes, super villains, and their families and friends are brought back to life by Nekron, the various color corps from Geoff Johns' run on GreenLantern must put aside their differences and fight to protect all life in the universe. While being heavily GreenLantern[=-centric=], it crosses over with the entire DCU. Most books had at least one issue involved with the event.\\
