* Played straight in ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8532906/1/iFightCrimeWithVictorious iFight Crime With Victorious]]'' when two of Miranda Cosgrove's characters, [[Series/ICarly Carly Shay]] and [[Series/DrakeAndJosh Megan Parker]] meet thanks to Megan's precognitive power. This serves as a plot point since Megan thinks that [[spoiler:she is seeing herself in her visions of the future, but the person in them is actually Carly]]. When they meet, Megan [[LampshadeHanging comments on]] how much their personalities contrast despite their similar appearance.

* Lets just say that the relationships between [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Spike]] and [[Series/{{Torchwood}} Captain John Hart]] really run the gamut from being the same person to being enemies, friends, lovers or basically anything else you can imagine.

** Plenty of fanfic also involving [[{{LightNovel/Slayers}} Lina Inverse]] meeting up with female Ranma. Or the latter and [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Rei Ayanami]]. There was even one with [[Manga/VideoGirlAi Ai Amano]]. Blame Music/MegumiHayashibara and her amazingly prolific career.

* There are umptynine ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'' fics that reveal that Sam Tyler is... in fact, [[Series/DoctorWho the Master.]]
* In ''Lost Ones'', a ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' crossover with the DC Universe, Gwen fights Slade, who remarks that [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans "You remind me of someone I knew a long time ago, she was a lot like you. You Even sound like her too...let's just say that someone with the power of Geokinesis used to work for me."]] Considering the fact that Creator/AshleyJohnson plays both Gwen and Terra, it's pretty fun, though they haven't met each other yet.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''Series/{{Firefly}}'' crossovers have at least three special variations unique to them, one where Xander initially panics upon meeting Mal Reynolds because of the latter's resemblance to Caleb, and one where cast members from ''Series/{{Angel}}'' mistake Zoe for Jasmine or Jayne for Hamilton.

* [[Series.TheSentinel Captain Simon Banks]] has been mistaken for the Immortal [[Series/{{Highlander}} Carl Robinson]]. Similarly, a certain [[Series/{{Highlander}} Really Old Guy]] either gets mistaken for or actually is [[Series.TheSentinel a certain serial killer]]. [[PeterWingfield Methos]] gets around a lot in general.

** There is a small niche of fan fics devoted to crossovers between Supernatural and ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' which writers find doubly fun to play with because Gilmore Girl character Dean Forester is also played by Supernatural's Jared Padalecki and happens to share a name with Padalecki's current character's brother, Dean Winchester. Dean Forester lives the "apple pie" life Sam Winchester always wanted so theories abound that during the period of pre-series where Sam ran away from home, he actually went to Stars Hollow and lived with a family while using his brother's name as an alias.
** There are ''Smallville'' / Supernatural crossovers in which the focus is on Jason Teague/ Dean Winchester interactions, as the characters share a single actor. It also makes sense as the Winchester brothers are from Kansas and might be drawn to a town in their home state that is rumored to be filled with super powered beings and strange occurrences.
** There is also a not insignificant number of crossovers between ''DarkAngel'' and ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' (because of shared actor Michael Weatherly) where Tony [=DiNozzo=] becomes Logan Cale or vice versa. Science magic is usually invoked to explain the timeline and/or the character aging in reverse.

* One short fanfic had ''Series/{{NCIS}}''[='=]s medical examiner Dr. Donald Mallard, better known as Ducky, mistake ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles''[='=] medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles for his friend Kate (he was involved in a small accident). It can be assumed to be Kate Todd from the first two seasons because Kate just happens to be played by the same actress who plays one of the title characters from Rizzoli & Isles. [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6162024/1/A_Resemblance Any guesses?]] Not the only thing involving Ducky Mallard, played by David [=McCallum=], there are fics out there of him either being related to or ''being'' Illya Kuryakin from ''Series/TheManFromUncle'', [=McCallum=]'s breakout role. Which is kinda weird since an ActorAllusion line early in the seris made reference to Ducky's resemblance to Illya.

* In the Operations Manual for West End Games' ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}: A Frightfully Cheerful Roleplaying Game'', published in 1986, contains an adventure titled "The Couch Potato," in which (assuming the players are using the characters from the movie) Dr. Peter Venkman meets a character named Dr. Hunter Panama. The manual notes right away that Doctor Panama is based on Dr. Hunter Thompson and suggests watching the movie ''Film/WhereTheBuffaloRoam'', in which he is played by Bill Murray (who, in case you can't guess, also played Dr. Venkman), to give you ideas on how to play the character. The manual also remarks that two Bill Murray characters playing off each other appeals to their schizophrenia.

* Crossing ''Film/BillAndTed'' with ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' due to Creator/KeanuReeves being in both isn't unheard of. In particular is [[http://www.billandted.org/stories/masakochan/matrixend.html ''An Alternate Ending to Matrix Revolutions'']], with a side of MindScrew.

Added DiffLines:

* Ryan Reynolds and Ben Affleck played characters in both the Marvel and DC universes. Reynolds plays Hal Jordan/Green Lantern in the DC universe with Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne/Batman. In Marvel, Reynolds plays Wade Wilson/Deadpool with Ben Affleck's Matt Murdock/Daredevil. Many Marvel/DC crossovers play off this.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/VeronicaMars'' share enough actors to make an arsenal of this, albeit most of them in minor roles in the latter. And that's without getting to the fact that Veronica dated [[Film/XMen Iceman]]'s identical twin and Mac dated [[Series/{{Smallville}} The Flash]]. It's superhero central, guys.
* Done in reverse, with the official ''Comicbook/XMen''/''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' crossover which featured Captain Picard meeting Professor Xavier, but came out before the first Film/XMen movie. Made even funnier by a character remarking that both share a likeness.

* HarrisonFord has such a career with fingers in the pies of so many fandoms that he is almost a too-obvious go-to person for this fanfic trope. What happens when Literature/JackRyan tries to rescue the president aboard Film/AirForceOne? What if [[Film/BladeRunner Lieutenant Deckard]] is chasing Film/TheFugitive? What if Franchise/IndianaJones found the wreckage of the ''[[Franchise/StarWars Millennium Falcon]]'' in the Northwest United States while looking for Bigfoot? (That one is an ''official'', non-canon comic story, mind you.) And most importantly, [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny who would win in a fight?]]

* Also, "What if Crichton met Mitchell" has been done ''many'' times. There are way too many Starscape fics. Also (but not so often) called Fargate. Even the SG-1 series itself did a Farscape parody (interestingly, Mitchell and Vala do ''not'' take the roles their actors did in the actual "Farscape.")

* Can happen in canon. Creator/KenjiOhba has played Retsu Ichijoji, the titular HenshinHero in ''Series/SpaceSheriffGavan'' and two Franchise/SuperSentai series, so naturally, when Gavan [[Film/KaizokuSentaiGokaigerVsSpaceSheriffGavanTheMovie crossed over]] with ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'', [[Series/BattleFeverJ Shiro Akebono/Battle Kenya]] and [[Series/DenshiSentaiDenziman Daigoro Oume/Denji Blue]] were along for the ride. Only fanboy Gai can tell them apart (and considers the differences ''obvious''). Funnily, Ohba had performed both his Sentai roles before in ''Gokaiger'': he played Oume in the ''199 Heroes'' movie, and Akebono in the ChristmasEpisode of the series proper.
