* The feature-length special ''Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July'' by Creator/{{Rankin Bass|Productions}}, which brought back several characters from all of their holiday specials and many of the voice actors from the previous specials as well. It involves Rudolph, Frosty, and Santa trying to stop an evil wizard named Winterbolt. It also contains a bounty of ContinuityPorn, with callbacks to other previous specials such as ''Santa Clause is Comin' to Town'', ''Rudolph's Shiny New Year'', and ''Frosty's Winter Wonderland'' (sadly, there are no callbacks to ''The Year Without a Santa Claus'', leaving the poor Miser Brothers snubbed).

** In 2011, Boom! Comics was losing the license to the DisneyAfternoon comics, so they went out with a bang. As such, ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' and ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' are crossed over for the last arc of the respective series, with various villains led by the Phantom Blot (from the ''Mickey Mouse'' comics, though the mouse himself doesn't appear) who himself [[spoiler: mind-controlled by Magica De Spell]].

** The 2017 event, ''Series/CrisisOnEarthX'' is even bigger. Whereas "Invasion!" was technically only a three part event (with ''Supergirl'' being just a [[RedSkiesCrossover tie-in]] to the main event), "Crisis" fully plays out over all four episodes, equally juggling the storylines of each show, as well as serving as backdoor pilot for ''WesternAnimation/FreedomFightersTheRay''. And it actually has lasting repercussions for the Arrowverse's future, as [[spoiler: Barry and Iris get married, as do Oliver and Felicity, while Martin Stein is KilledOffForReal]].

* Creator/KimNewman's superhero deconstruction "[[https://johnnyalucard.com/fiction/online-fiction/coastal-city/ Coastal City]]", about what it would actually be ''like'' to live in a typical comicbook universe, mentions that "once a year, there would be a crossover free-for-all, frequently involving something enormously powerful from another galaxy, and all the hypers would destroy the city while saving the universe."

* ''ComicBook/ForeverEvil'' (2013-14): Continuing off where ''ComicBook/TrinityWar'' left off, the Crime Syndicate, the Justice League of a [[MirrorUniverse universe where everyone is evil, 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, who leads Earth's native supervillains to stop the Syndicate from destroying what little they all value on Earth.

* 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.

* Creator/HannaBarbera once did this, combining ''WesternAnimation/{{Birdman}}'', ''WesternAnimation/TheGalaxyTrio'', ''WesternAnimation/MobyDickHannaBarbera'', ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost'', ''WesternAnimation/MightyMightor'', and ''The Herculoids'', among others. Sometimes, Boomerang would show the whole thing.

** The later ''WesternAnimation/SpaceStars'' series did this at the end of each show with a "Space Stars Finale" which features a team up of characters from two or more of the show's segments (Teen Force, Space Ghost, The Herculoids, and [[WesternAnimation/TheJetsons Astro]] and the Space Mutts).

* 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.
