* Franchise/{{Superman}} and Franchise/{{Batman}} are individually massive cultural icons. They're also members of the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}}, which consists of all of DC Comic's other major superheroes--including ones like Franchise/WonderWoman who are popular in their own right. So you may see these characters playing out individually, or as a combo of [[TheDCU the company's superhero line.]]

Sometimes a creator or company will strike gold. A work (film, novel, etc) may spawn sequels, adaptations to other media, and a bonanza of merchandise. Usually, it'll take place in its own distinct universe, the author having significant autonomy, or the time and place keeping it off limit for crossovers, like ''Franchise/StarWars,'' ''TheLordOfTheRings'' or ''Franchise/HarryPotter.''

* One of the more interesting examples at the Ride/DisneyThemeParks is the imagination-based pavilion at Epcot (Florida). After the ThreeDMovie ''Honey, I Shrunk the Audience'', a follow-up to ''Film/HoneyIShrunkTheKids'', proved a hit there in 1994, the pavilion was completely rethemed to its "Imagination Institute" setting at decade's end. In the process, it became a hub for live-action Disney science-related characters via [[EasterEgg Easter eggs]] or more obvious references. The works thus welded are the ''Honey'' films, ''Film/{{Flubber}}'', the Merlin Jones films from TheSixties, and the Dexter Riley films from TheSeventies...plus the ''original'' incarnation of the pavilion via the animated/Audio-Animatronic dragon Figment (a friendly {{Trickster}} figure in this incarnation, rather than a {{Sidekick}}). The pavilion is set for a complete overhaul in 2014; if anything remains, it will most likely be Figment.

** [[TheBeautifulGame Football]] goes one step further, since there's both a national league ''and'' continental confederation for any given team. So, for example, Real Madrid is part of the branding of both Spain's La Liga and UEFA's Champions League.

* Beginning with ''Film/FrankensteinMeetsTheWolfMan'', Universal Pictures started pitting many of their monsters against each other, to the point they formed, for the most part, one cohesive universe with most of the action taking place in Eastern Germany. For years after, on things like video collections, cartoons and even postage stamps would sport a ''Universal Monsters'' logo featuring Dracula, Frankstein's Monster and its bride, the Mummy, the Wolf Man, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. In 1999, StephenSommers remade ''Film/{{The Mummy|1999}}'', and upon its success combined most of the gothic monsters for 2004's ''Film/VanHelsing'', in the hopes of going through Universal's entire stable of beasties. It didn't work out, and neither did Universal's attempt to give another shot to ''Film/{{The Wolf Man|2010}}''.

** Creator/HannaBarbera once pooled them all for ''WesternAnimation/LaffALympics''. As both HB and Creator/CartoonNetwork were under the same banner, CartoonCartoons might also fit - WesternAnimation/DynomuttDogWonder appeared in ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', and WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo met among others Franchise/ScoobyDoo. (''Dexters''[='=]s characters also cameod in many other Cartoon shows, specially ''ThePowerpuffGirls'')

* {{Marvel}}'s a little more complex. They will often place things under the [[MarvelUniverse "Marvel Super-Heroes"]] banner. But unlike DC's stable, they don't always play well together, and many of their most popular characters aren't even major players in the company's Justice League analogue, Comicbook/TheAvengers. Thus, for the purposes of editors, movie franchises or toys, they may divide the Marvel Universe into different "corners", with Spider-Man and the X-Men most often being their own distinct franchises. However, this may be changing, with both Spidey and Wolverine now included as Avenger members.

[[AC:LiveActionTV]]
* The ABC television show ''Series/OnceUponATime'' is rapidly turning into the ''Franchise/DisneyPrincess Show'', as its references to fairy tales tend to be the ones that had been adapted by Disney, and include Disney-specific traits. Maleficent appeared in season one, the season two premiere brought in Fa Mulan, and season four will include [[spoiler:Elsa and other characters from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'']].

* The ABC television show ''Series/OnceUponATime'' is rapidly turning into Creator/{{Disney}}'s works as a whole can kind of be considered one giant uber franchise, with sizable subfranchises for the ''Franchise/DisneyPrincess Show'', as its references to fairy tales tend to be Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon and Creator/{{Pixar}}'s films, plus whatever else they own (like [[Creator/WaltDisneyPictures live-action films]] or the ones Ride/DisneyThemeParks) that had been adapted by Disney, they feel like throwing in. Disney now also owns ''Franchise/TheMuppets'', ''Creator/MarvelComics'', ''Franchise/StarWars'', and include Disney-specific traits. Maleficent appeared in season one, ''Franchise/IndianaJones'', making them sub-franchises to the season two premiere brought in Fa Mulan, and season four will include [[spoiler:Elsa and other characters from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'']].
Disney brand.



* The Franchise/DisneyPrincess brand, which is primarily focused on the royal heroines of fairy/folktale-derived films from the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon. While no canon work has presented the heroines together (a rejected concept for the "Pomp and Circumstance" segment in ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}'' would have done so), various direct-to-video productions, theme park shows, [=CD=]s, and so forth have.
** The Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon as a whole can kind of be considered one giant uber franchise.
** KingdomHearts also has most of the Disney Princesses as the Princesses of Heart. [[Disney/AliceInWonderland Alice]] replaced [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]] who was instead a GuestStarPartyMember.
** The Princess franchise's rival Disney Villains, actually [[LoadsandLoadsofCharacters takes this]] UpToEleven!
