* ''AnotherCenturysEpisode 3'' features a "save both worlds" plot, as some AppliedPhlebotinum that exists in both worlds creates a dimensional rift, pulling the two Earths together due to gravitational forces. Also connects to ''Eureka 7'' pretty significantly, since it's an IntercontinuityCrossover.

* Most of ''[[YoungWizards So You Want To Be A Wizard]]'' by Creator/DianeDuane is spent in an alternate universe where the [[BigBad Lone Power]] has already put out the sun. At the climax, the protagonists make it back into their own universe, but the Lone Power follows them through the worldgate and they have to stop it...

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds'': Link starts out trying to save Hyrule, but soon finds that its counterpart, Lorule, is in even worse shape. [[spoiler:In the end, it looks as though Hyrule will be saved at the expense of Lorule, which would make this a subversion... but Link and Zelda then wish on the Triforce for Lorule's Triforce to be restored, saving Lorule, and making this DoubleSubverted]].

* ''Outcast'': Opening the portal between the two worlds creates a black hole which will swallow up the Earth... unless you enter the alternate universe to figure out how to stop it. It turns out the alternate universe needs to be saved as well.

Added DiffLines:

* The Twin Worlds of Stark (i.e. our familiar Earth) and the magical Arcadia in ''VideoGame/TheLongestJourney'' have been one and the same twelve thousand years ago, and the biggest danger they face is an uncontrolled collapse back into each other. In this regard, April isn't saving Arcadia only to learn that she also has to save Stark--much rather, she is saving Stark, only to learn that in doing so, she also saves Arcadia.
* Similarly, Amy from ''VideoGame/ZanZarahTheHiddenPortal'' saves the world of Zanzarah from the dark forces, but in doing so, also restores magic to her own mundane world, which had lost it long ago.

* In the ''{{Everworld}}'' books, it would be a bad thing if the gods crossed over into the world of our own, or if aggressive human men with guns crossed over into the world of Everworld. Both of these dangers threaten to happen over the course of the stories.
