* Season 3 of ''Anime/SpacePatrolLuluco'' features references to previous ''Creator/StudioTrigger'' works for four episodes in a row, each one more blatant than the last. Episode 7 confirms the existence of Life Fibers in the universe, features a planet named KLK-X, plays "Before my Body is Dry", and even has an alien that looks like Guts, but ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is not even mentioned once in the episode. Episode 8 takes place on the world of ''Anime/LittleWitchAcademia'' and features an extended cameo from Sucy Manbavaran. The first half of episode 9 is for all intents a purposes a sequel to ''SEX and VIOLENCE with MACHSPEED'', with Luluco shoved into the background. Finally, episode 10 reveals that ''WebAnimation/InfernoCop'' is a member of the Space Patrol.

* ''Anime/ProjectAKo'' features a blink-and-you'll-miss-it gag at the end of the original OAV, where A-Ko's mother is seen sewing something that looked suspiciously like Franchise/{{Superman}}'s costume. The gag (that A-Ko is Superman and Franchise/WonderWoman's daughter) is made far more explicit in the Creator/AntarcticPress adaptation, where her parents refer to each other as "Clark" and "Diana".

** Speaking of the crossover episode, when Billy wore his dad's "lucky" pants, which kicked off the entire episode [[ItMakesSenseInContext and nearly destroyed all civilization as a result]], the KND weren't even the first call he made. No, he called [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Eddy]] first, who ''then'' directed him to the Kids Next Door once learning that he's. [[OverlyLongGag And then when they show up at his door, he exclaims,]] "Hey, you're not WesternAnimation/ThePowerPuffGirls!" The episode as a whole has at least one character from every series produced for Creator/CartoonNetwork up to that point appear as cameos, and TheStinger features fake posters a number of joke crossovers (''[[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Ed, Edd n]] [[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy Mandy]]'', ''[[WesternAnimation/EvilConCarne Evil]] [[WesternAnimation/CampLazlo Camp]] [[WesternAnimation/EvilConCarne Carne]]'', ''[[WesternAnimation/Classof3000 Class of]] [[WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor Numbah]] [[WesternAnimation/Classof3000 3000]]'', ''[[WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey My Gym Partner's A]] [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory Mandark]]'', and ''[[WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack Samurai]] [[WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends Mac]]'').

* There's a one shot manga by Creator/OsamuTezuka about a company testing a robot SalaryMan, who proceeds to [[GoingNative go native]] and become a union leader, while at the same time seducing every woman on the staff. After his creators have him assassinated it's revealed all the women in the company have (somehow) had his babies, which confuses the hell out of his best friend, who wonders "What does a robot baby look like, anyways?" Cut to a delivery room full of baby [[Manga/AstroBoy Astro Boys]].

** As might the throwaway gag of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Archie}}'' gang throwing Homer out of a van and warning him to "stay out of Riverdale". He is later seen reading an Archie comic and muttering under his breath about "stuckup Riverdale punks".
*** A later episode "How Lisa Got Her Marge Back" had the Riverdale gang pulling a prank on Bart before mourning Archie (a reference to Archie's death in ''ComicBook/LifeWithArchieTheMarriedLife'').

** In another episode, Futuredrama, Bender from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' appears next to Bart and Homer after they travel through a time tunnel. Homer quickly proceeds to tell him to "get lost" and chucks him out of a moving vehicle.

* The ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' episode "Dad is Disturbed" had Mom interrupting Dad's golf game by talking on the phone with "Betty". Dad gets her to stop by going to the other end, revealing that Mom was talking with a modern version of Betty Rubble from ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''. At the episode's end, he goes back to the same house to watch the game with Barney.

* ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei's'' [[BrickJoke "Seven-year punchline"]], which started back in ''Manga/KatteniKaizo'' when a character is sealed behind a wall and doesn't appear again until ''Zetsubou'', when she busts out and introduces herself.

Added DiffLines:

* While it occasionally occurred in the original series, Berke Breathed has started using this trope a lot in the 2015 reboot of ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty''. Usually the guest is another comic strip character (most commonly [[ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} Garfield]] or [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Snoopy]]), but then you have strips like [[https://static1.squarespace.com/static/529f398ee4b0ee6848fe2724/55cb9e85e4b0a13f76699b0a/5813a279b3db2b2b3a925594/1477681787616/14859690_1342017192495697_9194809047025332943_o.jpg?format=500w this]] and [[https://static1.squarespace.com/static/529f398ee4b0ee6848fe2724/55cb9e85e4b0a13f76699b0a/5815fa10cd0f682fcb9efdca/1477835282678/ack+happens.jpg?format=500w this]].

* The crossover between ''WesternAnimation/UncleGrandpa'' and ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' ends with Uncle Grandpa reading a piece of paper listing characters from most of the other Cartoon Network shows.
* The ''Uncle Grandpa'' episode "Pizza Eve" has a segment in which Uncle Grandpa is giving out "Grampies", and many characters from currently-airing and past Cartoon Network shows are attending. As ones might expect when Uncle Grandpa is the host, he sweeps all the awards (including the "best ''Steven Universe'' episode" award)..
