* In ''ElevenEyes'', Kakeru comes to the realization late in the game that every one of the chosen ones was drawn from another, slightly different, reality since memories and information don't match up. Everyone worries that [[spoiler:they have to die because of Liselotte's soul in them and]] when the battle is finished, they won't be able to see each other again. [[spoiler:Kukuri heals the world back to normal.]] Everyone ends up staying together in the same world, a composite of all of theirs. They'd become such a tight group of TrueCompanions that it would be too cruel to split them apart. * Used mildly in the [[http://www.onemanga.com/Tsubasa_Reservoir_Chronicles/69/05/ Shara/Shura]] [[StoryArc arc]] of ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle''. In this case, the main characters don't even realize they are time traveling, but their actions do result in friendlier interactions in the original world. Not that there aren't consequences....

* PiersAnthony's ''Literature/ApprenticeAdept'' series eventually merges the two worlds into one; as the characters are explicitly paired across both worlds (mirror-universe twin kinda thing), each pair merges into one being, and each pair has to time-share their body. Substantially easier for the heroes than for the villains, since heroes are used to putting the needs of others on par with or ahead of their own.

* Happens with the ''{{DC}}'', ''{{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 ''{{New52}}'', with some Wildstorm and Vertigo characters and concepts being added to the DCU.

* Marvel's ''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]].

* The objective of the villain in ''{{Noein}}'' is to converge the infinite possible universes into one world, which he thinks would be free from suffering. It also comes at the cost of all individuality ceasing to exist.
