** The some-odd Ranma[=/=]Manga/InuYasha crossovers where Ranma invariably turns out to be Inuyasha's reincarnation. They're up in the article itself for a reason. In addition, the two actually encountered each other semi-officially in an animated promotion for ''It's A Rumic World,''[[note]]A compilation of short works by Creator/RumikoTakahashi; the short used the main characters of her three most famous series: ''Manga/InuYasha, Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', and ''UruseiYatsura''.[[/note]] which once provided the page illustration. Inuyasha even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades this trope]] by demanding to know [[Creator/KappeiYamaguchi why Ranma has his voice]].

Added DiffLines:

** There is a small niche of fan fics devoted to crossovers between Supernatural and ''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.

* Rare canon example. In "Diagnosis Murder," Dr Bentley has a Contest Winner Cameo on Young and the Restless, and there are frequent references to Bentleys resemblance to Victoria Rowell. (who was on both shows)

* A target of frequent fic speculation is voice actress Creator/KotonoMitsuishi, whose incredibly broad portfolio of roles offers a vast range of possibilities: imagine, if you will, an intersection of any two or more of [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Misato Katsuragi]], [[Anime/DragonHalf Mink]], [[Anime/SailorMoon Usagi Tsukino]], [[Anime/ExcelSaga Excel Excel]], [[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive Christie]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny Murrue Ramius]], [[Anime/KaleidoStar Cathy Taymor]], [[Manga/FullMetalAlchemist Gracia Hughes]], [[Manga/FruitsBasket Kagura Soma]], [[Anime/{{Noir}} Mireille Bouquet]], [[Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena Juri Arisugawa]], [[Anime/OruchubanEbichu Ebichu]] and [[Anime/BirdyTheMighty Birdy Cephon Altirra]] -- just to name a ''few''.
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' parodies this anytime [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Misato Katsuragi]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Amuro Ray]] show up in the same game. Why? Because they're [[Anime/SailorMoon Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Kamen]]!

* ''Manga/BusouRenkin'' fanfic writers like to crossover with ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', usually making Kazuki into Kenshin's son.

* Can happen in canon. Creator/KenjiOhba has played a HenshinHero in ''Series/SpaceSheriffGavan'' and two Franchise/SuperSentai series, so naturally, when Gavan [[Film/KaizokuSentaiGokaigerVsSpaceSheriffGavanTheMovie crossed over]] with ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'', [[Series/BattleFeverJ Battle Kenya]] and [[Series/DenshiSentaiDenziman Denji Blue]] were along for the ride. Only fanboy Gai can tell them apart (and considers the differences ''obvious''). Sadly, Creator/HiroshiMiyauchi has never gotten to do this in a TV series or movie: on the two occasions that ''Series/JAKQDengekitai'' and ''Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger'' have wound up in the same place, Miyauchi only played his ''JAKQ'' character, Big One, with Aoranger being just one more suited stuntman doing chop-socky in the background. In the ''Let's Go Kamen Rider'' megacrossover, neither Series/KamenRiderV3 ''nor'' [[Series/KaiketsuZubat Zubat]] ever appeared out-of-costume, though both were voiced by him. Still, in-universe, Miyauchi's characters have met a few times now, though only one at a time got what most consider a full appearance. The only time Miyauchi did get to meet himself was in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmCKR3UiEJw an ad]] for the video game ''VideoGame/SuperHeroSakusenDaidaruNoYabou'', in which V3 and Zubat appeared in their civilian forms.

Creator/KenjiOhba has played a 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 Battle Shiro Akebono/Battle Kenya]] and [[Series/DenshiSentaiDenziman Denji 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.

* In the ''Series/AdamAdamantLives'' fanfic "[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/3999313 A Romantic Or A Rogue?]]", the villain is a thinly-disguised Nelson Gabriel from ''Radio/TheArchers'' -- who, like Adam's valet Simms, was played by Jack May.
* In [[http://hermit.org/Blakes7/Library/DispStor.cgi?SR=59649&ST=0002&COUNT "Rebel Quartet"]], a ''Series/BlakesSeven'' story, Orac meddles with the teleport and fetches back not one Blake, but four (all played by Gareth Thomas). There's Blake, the Rev. Griffiths (''Literature/HowGreenWasMyValley''), resistance leader Owen Edwards (''The Knights of God''), and magician Blaze (''Merlin: the Quest Begins''), who promptly sets Orac on fire. All four are rebels against oppression, none of them can agree on anything, and Avon, who hasn't been bothered in weeks, has never been so content in all his life.

* There are a few ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' and ''DarkAngel'' crossover fics. Their ubiquity isn't surprising, as Jensen's characters in ''Dark Angel'', the twins Ben and Alec, were genetically engineered, and thus could conceivably be clones of Dean. In light of that, and the TwinThreesomeFantasy trope, it was probably inevitable. However, ''Dark Angel'' is set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture. So, if Dean isn't going to be in his forties, time travel or alteration to canon is necessary. Or heck, they could be parallel universes. One form of fic which is surprisingly common despite messing '''heavily''' with the timeline is the story in which Alec left Seattle after "Freak Nation" and became Dean.
