* Technically ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' is a MegaCrossover between, with a little bit of exaggeration, ''all fiction in existence ever'' which tends to run on ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve and also has a pretty loose definition of ''fiction''. So there are angels, demons and {{God}} (ala GoodOmens and {{Film/Dogma}}), TheFairFolk (from Scandinavian folklore, a Goethe poem, and a Jim Henson movie amongst others), {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s (thanks to the works of Creator/TerryPratchett and Creator/NeilGaiman, ''Film/MoulinRouge'' etc. there are at least 3 deaths running around), Norse gods (courtesy to Marvel and the [[Myth/NorseMythology original myths]]) etc.):

* Stephen Marley's ''Literature/ChiaBlackDragon'' trilogy ''Sorceress'', ''Spirit Mirror'', and ''Mortal Mask'', take place in 2nd century China, but there also appear Indian Buddhists, ancient Egyptians (in the back story) and a few Christians. It is suggested that the mythologies and afterlives of all four religions (Chinese, Buddhist, Egyptian and Christian) all exist. In addition to the Stephen Marley's own original myths and creatures, of course
* In K.A. Applegate's ''{{Everworld}}'' series, ''every'' god from ''every'' mythology gets together, and they create a parallel universe where they ''all'' rule. Complete with mythical creatures in addition to humans and mundane wildlife. This causes some problems when ''every'' god has an extensive cult, and they're ''all militant.'' Kill the heretic for worshiping Aphrodite and not Quetzalcoatl! Furthermore, several alien gods from other universes decide to crash the party, including the god-eating god Ka Anor of the Hetwan.
* In the universe of Creator/ChristopherMoore's books the First Nation TricksterGod Coyote is the younger brother of the Egyptian deity Anubis, Jesus plays poker with an upstart CargoCult deity and there are vampires, djinn and angels, among other things.
* In S. M. Stirlings ''{{Emberverse}}'', while not exactly working together the Christian, Celtic and Norse pantheons are all backing the [[CaptainErsatz Arthurtype hero]] in various ways against the ReligionOfEvil for {{Eldritch Abomination}}s.

* Creator/GoreVidal's ''{{Creation}}'' is an attempt to do this realistically. It's an epic story of a single man, Cyrus Spitama, Zoroaster's grandson and a student of Pythagoras whose long life allows him to visit near-contemporaries like Vardhaman Mahavir, Gautam Buddha, Confucius and Socrates, all of them living as near-contemporaries and coming up with ideas on ''creation'' at near about the same time.

* The animated Disney ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' [[RecycledTheSeries series]] frequently crosses over Greek mythology with others (especially Norse mythology); Zeus and Hera have dinner dates with Odin fairly often, Hercules stands in for Thor (''right before'' Ragnarok is put into motion, unfortunately for ''everyone'') and the three Fates also serve as Urd, Skuld and Verdandi. Some Egyptian gods appear in one episode.
