* 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]].

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': The climax of the Falcon of the Millennium Empire arc results in this. When the Skull Knight tries to attack Griffith/Femto with his space-cutting attack, Griffith, having known he would try it, manipulates the attack so it instead strikes the face of the Apostle Ganishka; as Ganishka had descended into deepest parts of the Astral Plane twice, the attack caused a chain reaction that opens a fissure into the Astral Plane. The end result: the Astral Plane merges with the physical world and all mythical creatures and fell entities, including the rest of the God Hand, fully manifest in the physical world, turning what was already a CrapsackWorld into a literal HellOnEarth.

* ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'': During the Shanazar arc, Sonic and Robotnik are shrunk down and sent to Shanazar, a sub-atomic universe with an ArabianNightsDays flair. Near the end of said arc, Robotnik creates a Dimension Blender device, intending to use it to enlarge Shanazar until it occupied the same space as Mobius, merging the two planets together, with Robotnik planning to retake control of Mobius in the ensuing chaos. However, Robotnik's plan backfires when Mobius and Shanazar fuse together without any ill effects; instead, new Zones are added to the planet and portals to various worlds and dimensions on Mobius, including various points in time in Earth's history, are opened.

* Jack Williamson's Legion of Time is one of the earliest novels in which this trope appears as a (somewhat illogical) happy surprise ending. The alternative futures of Utopian Jonbar and Dystopian Gyronchi fight for existence. [[spoiler: The hero struggles to bring about Jonbar's future, but somehow his efforts cause a fusion of the two futures, with the best features of each - including a fusion of the two womem in them he loves, good girl Lethonee and bad girl Sorainya.]]

* Played with in ''FanFic/DigimonChildrenOfTime''. It's explained that the different versions of the Digital World as seen in ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure Adventure]][=/=]''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 02]]'', ''[[Anime/DigimonTamers Tamers]]'', ''[[Anime/DigimonFrontier Frontier]]'', and ''[[Anime/DigimonSavers Data Squad]]'' were all once one composite world, but were broken apart when the original [=DigiDestined=] defeated the darkness present during that time. After Tai, Davis, Takato, Takuya, and Marcus' respective groups saved each one, they have since merged back together into a single world.

* ''Fanfic/OutOfTheCornerOfTheEye'' kicks off with this, as the [[Literature/CthulhuMythos Outer Gods/Great Old Ones]] discover the ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' universe and superimpose their own on top of it. This causes them, and everything related to them, to be retroactively inserted into the JCA timeline.

* Done absolutely awesomely in OrsonScottCard's ''PastwatchTheRedemptionOfChristopherColumbus''. The plot is rather complicated, but suffice it to say it emerges that [[spoiler: our own timeline is the product of interference from ''another'' timeline, in which the Tlaxcalans of Central America conquered Europe and possibly the world. (The author does an excellent job of making it sound plausible). The people of ''that'' timeline viewed the Tlaxcalan invasion as the greatest catastrophe in human history, and so they altered their own timeline, by motivating Christopher Columbus to sail west (with a holographic God). Of course, in the story our own timeline appears to be headed for human extinction, so the characters make their own alteration, preventing both the Central American and European civilisations from wiping each other out. They are apparently more successful than the original alterers.]]

* In ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', this turns out to be the main motive of the BigBad, King Radical. [[spoiler:His homeworld, the Radical Lands, were drained of LifeEnergy by Sparklelord and gradually dying. He escaped to an AlternateUniverse, the Dr.'s world, which is a cross between our mundane world and the awesomeness of the Radical Lands. In order to save his own world, he manipulated a time portal to start merging the worlds together in order to save his people. Why is this wrong? Because the process would make every Radical Lander take the place of a normal person from Doc's world, effectively forcing them out of existence, which would ultimately kill billions. But by the BlueAndOrangeMorality of King Radical, there is nothing wrong with this because native radical residents would be spared, and boring people don't deserve to live anyway]].

* 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}}.]]

* In ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse'', the BigBad is Dark Kahn, a merged version of Shao Kahn and Darkseid, who starts merging the realities of Mortal Kombat and the DCUniverse, while feeding off the rage of the characters. He's also playing the heroes and villains of each world against each other, which think that the other is an invading army. Eventually, though teamwork, Superman and Raiden manage to defeat Dark Kahn and split the merged universe back into two and Dark Kahn himself back into Darkseid and Shao Kahn... who end up in each other's world and therefore powerless. Darkseid gets confined into the Netherrealm, while Shao Kahn gets banished to the Phantom Zone.
