* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' and ''WesternAniation/TheSecretSaturdays'' had a crossover episode called "T.G.I.S."(Thank Goodness It's Saturday)", where they joined forces to stop Dr. Amino and a resurrected V.V. Argost from raising an army of chupacabras. This episode was made years after ''Secret Saturdays'' ended and had no involvement from any of that show's production (only voice actor returned), making the events of this episode dubious canoncity for that series.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' takes this an extra mile by having the knock-off of the [[ShapedLikeItself Chinese knock-off of the family]] (the knock-off they're trying to teach a lesson actually being ''real'' in China) constantly copying every thing they do almost immediately. However, due to the country of origin disliking giving power to women (and the fact there is a law that prohibits families from having more than 2 children), they're able to get rid of them by having Anais lacking a counterpart of her own.

* ''[[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy The Grim Adventures of the]] [[WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor Kids Next Door.]]'' It makes no sense for this to be {{Canon}} because both shows have had different versions of SantaClaus appear, so they can't have a SharedUniverse, although that could qualify as a SeriesContinuityError.

* As a general rule, any game that has a CharacterCustomization feature can allow for this. Special mention goes to the ''VideoGame/{{Mii}}'' series of games that, thanks to the simplistic yet surprisingly flexible system, and ease of sharing Miis to others systems, has a near ''uncountable'' amount of [=Miis=] based on characters from ''many, many'' franchises.

* {{Martial Arts Movie}} titles may imply a crossover, such as ''Kung Fu Masters: Jackie Chan vs. Bruce Lee'', ''Bruce Lee vs. Jackie Chan'', or ''Jackie Chan vs. Jet Lee''; these are collections of separate movies. Movies like ''Cinema of Vengeance'', ''Top Fighter'' and ''The Deadliest Art'' may claim to be starring all of the main actors featured on the cover, but are actually documentaries full of StockFootage interviews and movie clips.
* An [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KOghs-hX7g advert for Sky Movies]] cuts together multiple ''Film/JamesBond'' {{car chase}}s to make them appear to be racing/chasing/killing off each other. Since canonically they're all supposed to be ''the same person''...
* In ''Film/{{Pixels}}'', the video game characters are not part of a crossover, as they are aliens appearing as video game characters.
* ''Film/KamenRiderG'' has a scene where [[Series/KamenRiderDecade Decade]] appears and calls in the other Heisei Riders to give G a pep talk. It's also a one-off special [[AffectionateParody Affectionately Parodying]] the entire ''Franchise/KamenRider'' franchise, so odds are it's not canon to any of the shows, especially considering the BigBad of ''G'' shows up in ''Decade'' as the BigBad of the [[Series/KamenRiderKabuto World of Kabuto]] arc with nary a reaction and G himself never appears in any crossover film gathering all Riders.
** Both Series/KamenRiderDenO and Series/KamenRiderFourze have met the cast of ''Manga/CrayonShinChan''; the former has Shinnosuke transforming into Kamen Rider Shin-O with the power of the Three-Assed Pig Imagin, while in the latter he turns into an Astro Switch that lets Fourze undergo a ToonTransformation.
** In regards to ''Kamen Rider'' as a whole, the annual ''Movie Wars'' films tend to fit this trope when it comes to the current show (for the cast of the previous show, it tends to be a [[PostscriptSeason Postscript Movie]] or more rarely a GrandFinale). The Rider will gain some kind of movie-exclusive SuperMode or item that never turns up in the series proper, and [[SupermanStaysOutOfGotham they'll never think to ask the Riders they met before for help]] when things start looking bad later in their own series. In a few cases, the movie completely clashes with the series' continuity or the characters' established personalities (the biggest offender being ''Series/KamenRiderOOO''[='s=] portion of ''Movie Wars Core''). ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' is a rare exception to this as Fourze does use the Super Mode he gained in ''Movie Wars Megamax'' later on in the series.

* The charity special "[[Recap/DoctorWho30thASDimensionsInTime Dimensions In Time]]" was a ''Series/DoctorWho''/''Series/EastEnders'' crossover.

(And before the new ''Doctor Who'' series established it as such, the Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novel ''First Frontier'' wrote it off as AllJustADream).

Allan Hawco played n'er do well ancestor "Jacob Doyle" on ''Murdoch'' while Yannick Bisson played descendant and Toronto cop "Bill Murdoch" on ''Doyle''. Both episodes ended with a climax at the same cliff in St John's, Newfoundland.
