* ''VideoGame/BodyBlows'': In this more obscure series that was made for Amiga brand computers, Ultimate Body Blows (the third and final installment) had all the characters from the prior games on a single roster. Considering that Ultimate Body Blows came out in 1994 (four years before the TropeCodifier), it may be [[OlderThanTheyThink the earliest instance of this trope]].

** Played straight in the sequel ''VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureEyesOfHeaven'', though. The story involves the character traveling though time and universe between parts and meeting/fighting each other.

* The ''VideoGame/NBA2K series has been the mainstay of dream match sports titles that have seeped into other franchises such as ''VideoGame/JohnMaddenFootball'' where you can have the 72 Bucks, 96 Bulls, 99 Lakers, 80 Lakers, heck the actual DreamTeam of your choice complete with throwback and old jerseys.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Forza}},'' that's where. What can be better than seeing the rarest, most ultra-exclusive multimillion-dollar hypercars trade paint and battle for position? By making them the [[Series/DukesOfHazzard General Lee]] and [[Film/SmokeyAndTheBandit Bandit]], or slapping on your favorite motor sport team's colors, or competing with the ''Franchise/JamesBond'' cars, or take the cars from Need for Speed and have them go up against the ones from ''Series/TheFastAndTheFurious,'' or ''VideoGame/RidgeRacer'', heck Forza 6 actually did just that.

** Since its own ''Super'' upgrade, the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' sub-series has sort of become this, with a character cast that encompasses all five eras of the ''Street Fighter'' storyline (''I'', ''Alpha'', ''II'', ''IV'' and ''III''), including therein the complete cast of ''Super Street Fighter II Turbo'' by way of the addition of T. Hawk and Dee Jay (considering Cammy and Fei Long were in the vanilla version, albeit as console exclusives). This is taken to its logical conclusion in ''Ultra Street Fighter IV'' where Edition Select allows players to choose between all versions of the characters in a manner reminiscent of ''Hyper Street Fighter II'' and ''Hyper Street Fighter Alpha''. Also, despite missing some ''Alpha'' and ''III'' characters, ''Ultra'' has grown the game's roster to the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters largest in the series]], featuring a 44-character cast.

** Another rare canonical example would come from ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon Armageddon]]'', with 61 of the 63 characters hailing from previous games. The UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} version also features Khameleon from the {{Nintendo 64}} version of ''Mortal Kombat Trilogy'', [[PopularityPower back by]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse popular demand]]. The reason for ''Armageddon''[='=]s canonicity is that it was [[http://www.gamesradar.com/xbox360/mortal-kombat-8/news/next-gen-mortal-kombat-reaffirmed/a-2007100312233076023/g-20070205122339792042 supposed]] to TorchTheFranchiseAndRun with a "new generation" cast for the next game by killing off nearly everyone present at the conflict, but this idea fell through by virtue of Midway going belly-up. ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' does start with nearly everyone dead at the end of ''Armageddon''... only for a dying Raiden to push the ContinuityReboot button in an attempt to prevent Armageddon, thus TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, from even happening. The new cast would debut in the following game, ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX''.

* ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'', which does this with ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''. The scope of series representation here, however, is more limited compared to other ''Warriors'' games: outside of the recurring Link, Zelda, Ganondorf, and Impa (all of whom [[CompositeCharacter incorporate traits from various previous incarnations]]), only characters from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarine of Time]]'' (Sheik, Darunia, Ruto), ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' (Midna [[note]]with her true form as DLC[[/note]], [[UnexpectedCharacter Agitha]], Zant), and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'' (Fi, Ghirahim) are present, with the rest of the cast filled by OriginalGeneration characters. A later DLC pack and the 3DS port, ''Hyrule Warriors Legends'', rectified some of this with seven additional faces ([[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Tingle, Young Link, Skull Kid]], [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Tetra, King Daphnes, and Toon Link]], plus a DistaffCounterpart of Link's named Linkle who is vaguely inspired by his ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' and ''VideoGame/LinksCrossbowTraining'' self)--eight if [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Epo]][[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess na]] is counted, so time will tell if any other titles will see their day in the sun in-game.
