* In the Disney Comics CrisisCrossover ''Dangerous Currency'', main villain Negaduck had a swarm of atom-sized versions of himself created, which together form a black inky substance known as the Slime. When another villain merges with the Slime, it turns them into an eviler, superpowered version of their original self, although it is also becomes compelled to obey Negaduck. Several villains can also merge with a single pool of Slime at the same time, which causes results closer to what this trope is usually about. For instance, four Beagle Boys merge iinto a four-headed hulking giant at one point.

** [[spoiler: The United Kingdom was once the separate countries of England, Scotland, Wales and part of Ireland. England eventually conquered Wales and Ireland, even as it merged the English and Scottish Crowns together. Most of Ireland eventually became an independent republic, although the provinces of Northern Ireland remain part of the U.K.]]

Compare CombiningMecha. Not to be confused with CompositeCharacter. See also MotifMerger and EquippableAlly (for a less intrusive method of combining two characters). This trope may sound like a literal version of MatingDance, but it's not.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', any Gem is able to perform fusion by (literally) dancing. Pearl and Amethyst can fuse into the four armed Opal, Garnet and Amethyst can fuse into the destructive Sugilite, Garnet and Pearl can fuse into the showy Sardonyx, and all three can combine to form Alexandrite; apparently any member of their species can combine with each other. Fusion is treated as a very ''intimate'' act based highly on the personalities on the gems involved.

** There's Chimeras, understood in-universe to be an Alchemical Composite fusion of two beings. ''Human'' Chimeras tend to be a Mixed Form Shapeshifter--if done correctly. Failed Human Chimeras result in a Composite-like fusion with the human half's soul and memories in control, but [[BodyHorror very much in pain]]. Successful ones retain their human forms, but can transform into a HalfHumanHybrid or gain powers reminiscent of the animal fused into them.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': The Avatar State is a Composite and Power Booster at once, with a bit of Switcher mixed in. It allows the current avatar to have the skills and knowledge of all the avatars before him. In moments of extreme danger or emotional distress, the Avatar State awakens by itself, and the current Avatar has no control until the danger/angst has passed. Additionally, in certain circumstances, the avatar can take the ''physical'' form of a previous avatar. Aang was able to turn into Roku while inside his temple, and Kyoshi while wearing her artifacts. Also, while not actually resulting in a fusion, Book 3 had an episode where Aang and [[spoiler:Zuko]] perform a fire-bending "form" that very much resembled the ''DBZ'' fusion dance at several points and was called the "Dance of the Dragons". This is likely a ShoutOut as the creators are anime fans.
** Additionally, other forces can use Aang's body and Avatar State to their own ends, such as the Ocean Spirit, La.

** Cell can absorb people by basically sucking up their entire body as one would suck liquid through a straw, but he can, was designed to, and does absorb Androids 17 and 18. They act as a Power Booster as they change Cell's appearance, but not to mimic their own.
** Buu absorbs a victim, gaining some of their physical traits, and having a personality change to lean towards the absorbee, also gaining knowledge and power. However, for Buu, this works both ways: Whilst absorbing Ultimate Gohan gave him a huge boost in power, absorbing a fat elder Kai not only added a fun-loving, playful shade to his personality, but also weakened him considerably.

own; he can, however, briefly manifest their voice or powers if the need arises.
*** Cell, as a biological creature, also counts as a Composite fusion of numerous characters already seen; he uses the signature attacks and shares the biological makeup of the series' strongest fighters, including [[EvilOverlord Freiza]] and [[SpiritedCompetitor Goku.]] This allows him to [[FromASingleCell survive impossibly deadly attacks,]] while [[CameBackStrong inheriting the Saiyan's racial ability to increase in strength after a near-death experience.]]

Once this aspect is removed, Buu is stated to be physically weaker, but [[ApocalypseHow vastly more dangerous]] without [[RestrainingBolt the Kai's peaceful influence.]] That Buu had already killed and/or [[BalefulPolymorph eaten]] the entire population of the world up to that point speaks volumes to his violent tendencies.

* In DeviantArt, this is quite common. Most of the fusions are between females however. If the fusion is between a male and a female, expect the result to be female or female-ish, but it's a rare occasion to find it ending with a male result, especially if the result is rather muscular.
