** ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheFighters Sonic the Fighters]]'' originally had Honey the Cat, an original character based on the same character from ''Fighting Vipers''. She was DummiedOut in the original Arcade version of the game and the ''Sonic Gems Collection'' re-release, but she's now avaliable for play in the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 and Xbox 360 digital re-release.
* ''[[VideoGame/FightersMegamix Fighters Megamix]]'', aside from being ''[[VideoGame/VirtuaFighter Virtua Fighter 2]]'' vs. ''[[VideoGame/FightingVipers Fighting Vipers]]'', also features many weird and out-of-place characters from other Sega AM2 works, who were added clearly JustForFun. Including [[VideoGame/SonicTheFighters Bean the Dynamite, Bark the Polar Bear]], Akira and Sarah (from ''Virtua Fighter Kids''), Siba (a scrapped character from the first ''Virtua Fighter'') [[VideoGame/VirtuaCop Janet]], Rent-A-Hero, [[VideoGame/DaytonaUSA Hornet]] (yep, you can fight as a ''race car''), [[Main/OriginalGeneration Deku, Mr. Meat]] and [[CreatorCameo Palm Tree]] (A 3D version of the palm tree from '' Sega [=AM2=]'s logo!''). Needless to say, as crazy as this game and it's roster was, it was great because it was 100% grade A GuiltyPleasure.

* Among the original students that wander the school in ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', there's Pippi, the mascot of the rhythm game ''{{VideoGame/Osu}}''. She even plays ''osu!'' in the game! However, just because she's from another series doesn't mean she's immune to the wrath of the school's local {{Yandere}}...

** The [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Galactic Bounty Hunter]] costume will have Bayonetta use the Arm Cannon for gun attacks. When she uses Panther Within, she uses Samus's Morph Ball mode, and double jumping makes her use the ScrewAttack.
** Finally, the [[VideoGame/StarFox Star Mercenary]] gives off VideoGame/StarFox64 sound effects, and replaces Love is Blue with mini Arwings that shoot lasers. If you wear this costume in Chapter 16: Sovereign Power, you'll control and Arwing instead of a jet, and can fire Smart Bombs.

** Firstly, there's Cole [=MacGrath=] of ''VideoGame/InFamous''. He's then joined on the same platforms by two cats (Toro and Kuro) that are Sony's mascots in Japan. Plus [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Bad Box Art Mega Man]], and VideoGame/PacMan riding a [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Mokujin]] robot. The former three are avaliable from the start of the game, while the later two were released as free DownloadableContent. Needless to say, the five of them are major {{Base Breakering Character}}s.

** Also, following the story from this chronology, Ryo takes the mantle of Mr. Karate appearing in his 30s and changing his look. This older version of Ryo appears as secret character in the 3D reboot of first Fatal Fury (''FF: Wild Ambition''), representing Karate in ''VideoGame/BurikiOne'' (the only known character in a game full of OriginalGeneration), as unlockable character in ''KOF: Maximum Impact 2'' with a similar mask than his father Takuma (apart of using ''Buriki One'' look for Ryo's Another outfit) and ''VideoGame/NeoGeoBattleColiseum'' representing ''Buriki One'' instead ''Art of Fighting''.



** Truly a remarkable example because from one simple guest appearance, the entire ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' franchise was given birth (which is like "Guest Fighter: The Game", at least in its original design, as not only did characters from ''Fatal Fury'' and ''Art of Fighting'' appear on the roster but so too did non-fighting game characters from games such as ''VideoGame/PsychoSoldier'' and ''VideoGame/IkariWarriors''). ''[=KoF=]'' in itself has had a few guest fighters (particularly in ''XI'' where characters from fighting games like ''[[VideoGame/FuunSeries Savage Reign]]'' and ''Buriki One'' got to join the cast). And while it features characters from multiple universes, ''KOF '94'' can be considered the earliest cross-over fighting game.

** Clark and Ralf make appearances in ''VideoGame/MetalSlug6'' and ''7'', as well as one or two of their signature moves. Leona is an add-on character in ''Metal Slug XX'', the PSP re-release of ''Metal Slug 7''. Additionally, ''VideoGame/MetalSlugDefense'' has all 3 of them, plus Kyo, Iori, Benimaru, Goro Daimon, Mature, and Vice, as purchasable units.

** ''The King of Fighters XIV'' has a subversion: The Another World Team is a team seemingly loaded with this trope. Led by [[VideoGame/SamuraiShodown Nakoruru]], its members include two heroines from Pachislot series: Mui Mui and Love Heart. The subversion is that there is a high chance that they're not being temporary guests: Rumors has it that the BigBad of the game has the power to yank beings from another timeline/dimension into the current dimension, possibly forcing the team to take part in canon as opposed of being 'bonus'.
