* Nintendo fans tend to have a lot of overlap with ''VideoGame/{{Bomberman}} fanbase due to Hudson Soft's extensive history with Nintendo and Bomberman's presence on every single Nintendo platform (except the WiiU), and his starring role in Nintendo's first crossover with another company. Around the releases of Super Smash Bros Melee and Super Smash Bros Brawl, he was one of the most requested 3rd Party Characters to appear in the series (right up there with the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog) and the leak of the official roster for Brawl was dismissed by several Smash communities due to his absence.

* Wrestling/RingOfHonor and Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH, despite being based on two different continents. Even while NOAH had a deal with Wrestling/{{TNA}}, whose fans had long since stopped having such relations with the [=RoHbots=], the ROH history of the relevant wrestlers was still used to promote them. However fandom doesn't always carry over to official response, as ROH's new owners in 2011 were convinced NOAH wrestlers like Wrestling/{{KENTA|Kobayashi}} wouldn't draw.[[/folder]]

* Many fans of the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' are also fans of the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' and ''Franchise/{{Gamera}}'' movies. Beyond being the "Big 3" of Japanese {{Kaiju}}, there's also a lot of HeyItsThatGuy involved. Many who worked on one entry in one franchise have worked on another entry in another one. For example, Creator/ShusukeKaneko of the 90s Gamera Trilogy directed ''Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack'' and several episodes of 2005's ''Ultraman Max'' and Creator/IshiroHonda directed several episodes of ''The Return of Ultraman''. But most famously, the creator of the Ultra Series was the special effects man for the first batch of Godzilla movies - Creator/EijiTsuburaya.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', ''WesternAnimation/ParaNorman'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'', and ''{{VideoGame/Psychonauts}}'' have been developing into this. ''Gravity Falls'' is also commonly seen with ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' and ''TwinPeaks''.

* Giant monster fans of multiple franchises tend to get along very well, despite studio rivalries. {{Franchise/Gamera}} fans and {{Franchise/Godzilla}} fans are prime examples. Fan sites to one nearly always include the other and crossover fan-works are extremely common. In that vein there are plenty of people who love ''Film/PacificRim'' and ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'' for being big budget giant monster movies. They turn rival when one camp dislikes the tone or execution of the other.

* Similar to CLAMP and Studio Gainax, Creator/StudioGhibli fans tend to be "Studio Ghibli fans" rather than fans of individual movies. Fanartists and cosplayers enjoy crossing over as many Ghibli characters as possible.

* The VideoGame/GhostTrick and VisualNovel/AceAttorney fandoms. Mainly because, were you to make a venn diagram of the two fandoms you'd have a smaller circle (VideoGame/GhostTrick) inside of a larger circle (VisualNovel/AceAttorney). It helps that WordOfGod verified that both games are in the same 'verse. Furthermore, the VisualNovel/AceAttorney and Franchise/ProfessorLayton fandoms are practically hand-in-hand already. Imagine the glee when [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Professor_Layton_vs._Phoenix_Wright:_Ace_Attorney a crossover]] was announced...

* Howabout fandoms for two games that are still in the Website/{{Kickstarter}} phase? Both VideoGame/MightyNo9 and VideoGame/{{Shantae}} launched their Kickstarter campaigns roughly around the same time, and the fandoms for both series not only get along swimmingly but also cross promote each other! Exemplified in [[http://i.imgur.com/vRTqEnn.png this]] piece of art from one of artists at WayForward.

* Historically fans of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' and ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' have been bitter to each other. However, since the death of the UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast and the multiple games on Nintendo consoles, the two fandoms have gotten along pretty well for the most part. Until he was confirmed for Brawl, Sonic was the most demanded guest fighter for ''SuperSmashBros''.

* ''Film/TheEagle'' and ''Film/JupiterAscending'', owing to a shared Creator/ChanningTatum.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' and ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' fans are best buddies. They've also allied with ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' fans (oftentimes [[FandomRivalry against]] ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', although many ''Hunger Games'' fans also like ''Twilight'' due to StephenieMeyer's exuberant praise for the book). In any case, there are loads of "The Potter Games" and "District 9" pages with an emblem of an owl carrying a broom inside the mockingjay ring.
