* In the first ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984'', ''Film/TheEvilDead1981'' is seen on a TV, a ShoutOut to a poster for Creator/WesCraven's earlier film ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'' appearing in ''The Evil Dead'' (which was itself a ShoutOut to a poster for ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' appearing in ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes''). Then in ''Film/EvilDead2'', Freddy Krueger's glove is seen in the shed where Ash creates his chainsaw-hand. Averted in [[Comicbook/FreddyVsJasonVsAsh the comics]], there was an UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny between Freddy, Ash, and [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason]].

* A cross-media example: An ad for ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' appeared at the end of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros'' Season 5 premiere, with some of the mercenaries too distracted by Hank and Dean's antics to notice a Spy sneaking into their base. A little over a season later, Rusty and Sgt. Hatred were seen playing ''Team Fortress 2'' when they were supposed to be working. While both universes have appeared in the [[InnBetweenWorlds interdimensional bar]] known as [[VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory The Inventory]], they appeared one game apart.

Added DiffLines:

* In Terry Pratchett's ''The Science of Discworld'', the wizards create a universe containing 'Roundworld', where physics works but magic and narrative logic don't. The computer Hex tells them not to destroy is because "Recursion has occured".

This is a special kind of crossover trope in which the characters from Show A will enter the universe of Show B--both shows of which are "real" to us. In other words, neither is a ShowWithinAShow. In addition to finding out that they're trapped in the universe of Show B, the characters of Show A discover that they themselves are the subject of a Show A in the universe of Show B. The characters from Show A are, in essence, ''simultaneously'' TrappedInTVLand and a RefugeeFromTVLand. This isn't WelcomeToTheRealWorld, since both universes are depicted as being [[UpTheRealRabbitHole equally "real"]].

* In ''MadAboutYou'' there is an episode where Paul visits an old apartment of his. That apartment happens to be Jerry Seinfeld's and he runs into and has a rather poignant conversation with Kramer. But in a later episode of ''{{Seinfeld}}'' George is forced to suffer watching an episode of ''Mad About You'' with his fiancee Susan.

* In ''Series/StargateSG1'', Jack O'Neill makes several references to ''TheSimpsons'', Richard Dean Anderson himself, being a huge fan. In season eight, ''DanCastellaneta'' makes a guest appearence (even agreeing with Jack that Mr Burns is the perfect analogy for the Goa'uld). Just to make it more confusing, Anderson once appeared as himself in an episode of ''The Simpsons'' and, oh yes, they mention his work in ''Stargate SG-1''.
* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Cisco has worn a rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock t-shirt, based on ''TheBigBangTheory'', while Sheldon Cooper on ''TheBigBangTheory'' has worn Flash t-shirts and costumes.

* While most of the [[AlternateUniverse parallel Earths]] in ''InfiniteWorlds'' are the result of [[AlternateHistory diverging histories]], there are a few where characters "known" to be fictional on Homeline[[note]]the home timeline of Infinity, implied to be our world TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture[[/note]], such as KingArthur, RobinHood, and SherlockHolmes, exist as real people.

* ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' and ''{{Psych}}'' are both mentioned as TV shows in each other's universes, but unfortunately, that leads to a WhatCouldHaveBeen, because if ''Psych'' hadn't made ''Leverage'' fictional in their universe, WordOfGod says that ''Leverage'''s [[{{Crossover}} Eliot would've had an uncle named Henry]].

** ComicBook/{{Static}}, an AscendedFanboy, lampshades this; he drops his knowledge of PostCrisis Superboy's history, and explains "I read all your comic books! Don't ''you'' read all of ''my'' comic books? (Do I ''have'' comic books?)"
