* The {{Suikoden}} series is headed this direction nowadays, but with original characters in an attempted re-invention. SuikodenTierkreis introduced the multiverse concept and the next game is said to be focused around this.

* Bringing the tradition into video games, ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse'' has a plot along these lines with {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} being somehow and involuntarily [[FusionDance merged]] ([[ComicBook/AmalgamUniverse for the]] [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited third time]]), now with Shao Kahn into an HumanoidAbomination who grinds the two universes into destruction just by ''existing''. Midway considers it an {{Elseworld}} for the DC side of the story, though they did write the ''Kombat'' side so as to implicitly fit in between ''VideoGame/MortalKombat3'' and ''VideoGame/MortalKombat4'' (as well as hand it a ContinuityNod in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'': the Training Mode description for Shang Tsung's M-rated CaptainErsatz version of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's gun fatality is "Shang Tsung has picked up a few tricks from previous opponents."). In real life, the crossover had the effect of WarnerBros., DC's parent company, being allowed to acquire Midway's ''Mortal Kombat'' division (now named Netherrealm Studios) when Midway went bankrupt.

* The blogosphere side of the SlenderManMythos has had a few. Some examples include the Winter Solstice story in ''Blog/ObserveAndTerminate'' and ''Blog/AHintOfSerendipity'', and the Wedding crossover from ''Take The Myth''.
* Franchise/TheFearMythos, a spin-off of the SlenderManMythos, had one early in its existence: The Birth of the Manufactured Newborn. It involved four different blogs intertwining their stories: ''The Hunter'', ''The Devil and God Are'', ''They Sought It With Thimbles'', and ''Blog/HiddenInTheTrees''. The crossover involved a conspiracy by the [[EldritchAbomination Fears]] to birth a new one into their ranks, while the human characters either try to stop them or try to help them.

* Similiary to the ''Kamen Rider Decade'' example above, ASCII Media Works celebrated the 15th anniversary of their Dengeki Bunko imprint of LightNovels with the NintendoDS RPG ''Dengeki Gakuen RPG: Cross of Venus'', where an evil organization is attempting to derail the storylines of eight of their series and so your [[HelloInsertNameHere not-so-nameless]] protagonist and [[LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana Shana]] must form a rag-tag group with their worlds' heroines to save their printed existences.

* ''Worlds Collide'' (1994): This was a major DC Comics[=/=]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 {{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 Phoenix Saga of the ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' animated series was a borderline example. Although there were no actual team ups, it used appearances of other MarvelComics characters to emphasise the seriousness of the whole thing. [[{{Comicbook.Excalibur}} Captain Britain]] and Comicbook/DoctorStrange were seen reacting to the Phoenix and {{Spider-Man}} (albeit only his silhouette and his hand) and [[ComicBook/IronMan War Machine]] were seen protecting civilians in [[BigApplesauce New York]]. In the sequel, the Dark Phoenix Saga, Doctor Strange briefly appeared again, along with [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]], a Watcher and Eternity.

* ''Literature/StarTrekDestiny'': An epic (and we do mean epic) trilogy of novels of the StarTrekExpandedUniverse, bringing together characters from ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]]'', ''[[Literature/StarTrekTitan Titan]]'', ''[[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Enterprise]]'', ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' and ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'' to tell the story of the apocalyptic final war between the Federation and the Borg.

* ''Bloodlines'' (1993): Whether you like this or not all depends on if you're a fan of UsefulNotes/{{the Dark Age|of Comic Books}}. This was a CrossThrough of all of DC's Annual series for 1993. A race of [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph-like]] parasites invade and start killing people by draining their spinal fluid. A small percentage of people, however, gained superpowers by this, leading to the creation of a new bunch of {{Nineties Anti Hero}}es. Nothing really changed and these new heroes were eventually reduced to [[CListFodder cannon fodder]] for ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis, or else ending up in ComicBookLimbo. The only notable result from this crossover being Creator/GarthEnnis' ''Comicbook/{{Hitman}}''. Aside from that, it's probably best remembered for crossing over with two far-better known DC stories at the time: ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'' and ''ComicBook/{{Knightfall}}'', due to featuring the four replacement Supermen and the Azrael-Batman for most of the crossover.
