* The climaxes of ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', ''ComicBook/ZeroHour'' , ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'' and ''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}''. DC Comics seems to be in a habit of doing this every decade or so.
* Franchise/TheDCU character Superboy-Prime wants to bring back his world, the "perfect" world... and he's willing to blow up every ''other'' world in existence to do it. Moreover, he has no problem killing anyone who gets in his way (or anyone who doesn't), because he judges them to be "stupid" versions of people who'd exist on his world. Yes, to some extent, he is [[TakeThatAudience a superpowered avatar of fanboy rage]]. Fittingly, he [[HumiliationConga eventually gets reduced to]] [[spoiler: an internet {{troll}}.]]
* Happens with the ''Creator/{{DC|Comics}}'', ''{{Creator/Wildstorm}}'' and (sorta) ''Creator/{{Vertigo|Comics}}'' universes at the end of ''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}''. After the Flash is revealed to have accidentally broken the timeline, leading to events in Flashpoint, Pandora merges the three universes together to fix the problem. (why she can't simply undo the damage and has to merge in the other universes is not explained) This leads directly to the DC reboot and the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'', with some Wildstorm and Vertigo characters and concepts being added to the DCU.
* Marvel's ''ComicBook/EarthX'' trilogy: Mephisto is continually [[DealWithTheDevil tempting people]] to change history for this purpose, when in fact it creates alternate universes--so even if the new universe is better, the old one is still there and [[CrapsackWorld just as terrible as before]]. Meanwhile the Elders of the Universe are trying to put all these alternate universes back together to recreate the original--and [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans never mind that this involves the effective death of trillions of people native to the new universes]].

* ''Comicbook/SecretWars2015'' is more or less Marvel's version of ''Crisis on Infinite Earths'', and it's been revealed that it will culminate in the merger of every single dimension in the Marvel Multiverse into... well first into Battleworld from which the ''Comicbook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' will arise at the end of the event, the most prominent being Earth-616 (Mainstream Marvel) and Earth-1610 (Ultimate Marvel).

* ''Fanfic/EarthsAlienHistory'': [[spoiler: It turns out the whole timeline only exists because the Time Lords are combining universes in order to give humanity enough challenges that they'll evolve into the perfect warriors needed to help defeat the Daleks and win the Time War.]]

* ''VideoGame/DistortedTravesty'': At first, our heroes Jerry and Jeremy are running around trying to find a way back home after being teleported into a videogame world. This goes out the window when they come across their own hometown within the game world, which is when they realize that the virtual and physical worlds have been permanently melded together. Separating them again is presented as utterly impossible.

** Similarly, the combining of the two worlds in the ''SuperMarioBrothers'' [[TheMovie Movie]] was a plot of the antagonists to rule them both.

* ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite'': Ultron and Sigma use the Space and Reality [[MacGuffin Infinity Stones]] to not only [[FusionDance merge themselves together]], but also merge the Franchise/MarvelUniverse and the various Franchise/{{Capcom}} universes together into one. At the end of the game, when Ultron Sigma is defeated, it's discovered that the Reality Stone was cracked during the struggle, meaning the merger cannot be reversed.

* In ''Webcomic/SupernormalStep'', [[spoiler:in ancient times, Fiona's mundane world and the Supernormalverse were one and the same. To prevent magic from going out of control and causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, a witch separated everything magical away from the main universe into a pocket dimension of its own, resulting in TheMagicGoesAway for the main universe. In chapter 22, the BigBad manages to overload the spell that separated the two worlds, causing the pocket dimension to collapse back into the main universe. The result is a massive, worldwide catastrophe as buildings from the pocket dimension end up in the same spots as buildings in the main universe. The fact that this also causes TheMagicComesBack makes the resulting chaos even greater.]]

** The author uses the same concept in [[Fanfic/GuardiansWizardsAndKungFuFighters another story]]; as [[WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures Shendu]] is being resealed at the end of the Demon World story, [[ForWantOfANail he chooses]] to spitefully destroy the Book of Ages, triggering a TimeCrash. Jade desperately scribbles onto a remaining fragment of the Book that they all survive, which it interprets by fusing the remnants of their universe with the ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' universe, retroactively making the JCA characters part of its history.

* A MarvelComics storyline had the ComicBook/FantasticFour aiding their [[HeelFaceTurn enemy-turned-ally]] Amazon Thundra to merge her LadyLand [[AlternateHistory Alternate Future]] of "[[MeaningfulName Femizonia]]" with the [[NoWomansLand misogynistic]] world of Machus to form a composite future of (theoretical) equality between the sexes. The men and women still fight each other constantly with deadly weapons, but Reed Richards just {{Handwave}}s that as the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race]] version of SlapSlapKiss. Naturally, Thundra finds this world boring and [[AlternateUniverse seeks out another version of Old Femizonia to settle in]].
