* Also worth mentioning are 1988's ''Atlantis Attacks,'' which made its way through Marvel's summer annuals for that year to celebrate the ComicBook/SubMariner's [[MilestoneCelebration 50th anniversary]], as heroes fought off an Atlantean invasion; ''Fall of the Mutants,'' earlier that year, which was mostly confined to the X-Books; ''Evolutionary War,'' in 1989, again running through the Marvel summer annuals and featuring the High Evolutionary; and other X-Book X-Overs like ''X-Cutioner's Song'' and ''X-Tinction Agenda,'' each of which made significant, if not always lasting, changes to the X-Status-Quo.

* Creator/HannaBarbera once did this, combining ''Birdman'', ''The Galaxy Trio'', ''Moby Dick'', ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost'', ''Mightor'', and ''The Herculoids'', among others. Sometimes, Boomerang would show the whole thing.

** This is followed by ''WorldWarHulk'', the follow-up to the ''Comicbook/IncredibleHulk'' storyline ''PlanetHulk'' where, days before ''Civil War'' happened, Iron Man and Mr. Fantastic shoot Hulk into outer space (because, frankly, the conflict was gonna have enough problems ''without'' having to deal with the Hulk). He ends up on a hellish gladiator planet, which soon explodes due to the ship Hulk was sent on blowing up. Needless to say, Hulk is pissed and fans get five issues of Hulk delivering karmic beatdowns towards Iron Man, Mr. Fantastic, and just about anyone else who gets in his way, as well as crossover issues in or with Comicbook/TheAvengers, Comicbook/GhostRider, [[ComicBook/LukeCageHeroForHire Heroes For Hire]], Comicbook/IronMan, ComicBook/AntMan, Comicbook/ThePunisher, and the ComicBook/XMen, not to mention a Prologue issue with a story that features the ComicBook/MiniMarvels filling in the background.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fire From Heaven'' was a 1996 Creator/ImageComics crossover with ''Backlash'', ''Deathblow'', ''[[ComicBook/Gen13 Gen¹³]]'', ''Sigma'', ''ComicBook/{{Stormwatch}}'', ''Wetworks'', and ''ComicBook/WildCATS''. Publishing delays lead to a confusing plot and reading order.

* 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 ComicBook/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.

* ''ComicBook/ForeverEvil'' (2013-14): Continuing off where ''ComicBook/TrinityWar'' left off, [[spoiler:the [[MirrorUniverse Crime Syndicate]] has arrived to the prime Earth and knocked the three Justice Leagues out cold in a bid to TakeOverTheWorld]]. [[EvilVersusEvil Not every supervillain is happy about this new development]], least of which is ComicBook/LexLuthor.

* In {{Wargames}}, characters and factions beating the crap of each other is their entire point, but sometimes events in the story get too out of hand and several facions are drawn into the ensuing conflict. These wars are commonly told in special supplements commonly named "Campaign Books". These books usually include the background of the conflict, special rules and scenarios to replicate in the tabletop the battles of the mentioned conflict and the rules of units, soldiers and characters who got involved in said conflict, regardless of faction or allegiance. Sometimes, these camapigns and their resolution gets it's way into the story itself and becomes a part of it, specially in the ficitional wargames.

* Since Season 3 of ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', it and ''Series/TheFlash2014'' have had quite a few crossovers that start on ''Flash'' and end on ''Arrow''. The biggest one so far is the "Invasion!" story in 2016, which is between the entire Franchise/{{Arrowverse}} -- starting in the final moments of a ''Series/Supergirl2015'' episode, then continuing through ''Flash'' and ''Arrow'', before concluding on ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''.

* 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.
