* The ''Fanfic/PrettyCureFanficFeatures'', due to crossing over a ''ton'' of stories on varying points of the Scale, tend to do this. If ''[[Fanfic/PrettyCurePerfumePreppy Perfume Preppy]]'' is in a feature with a bunch of casts from series that are as child-friendly as [[PrettyCure the source material]], no mention will be made of its various {{Family Unfriendly Death}}s and rather disgusting moments like [[spoiler:Ashley's cannibalistic mass murder spree]]. If ''[[Fanfic/PrettyCureHeavyMetal Heavy Metal]]'' is in there too, since it's even less child-friendly, the other fics in the pile will be made DarkerAndEdgier.

* ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soulcalibur IV]]'' features guest characters from ''Franchise/StarWars'' -- specifically Yoda, Darth Vader, and [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheForceUnleashed Galen Marek]] (referred to as "The Apprentice"). The problems are obvious; if their lightsabers worked the way they should then every character in the game would be [[LudicrousGibs sliced in half]] after the first hit. Instead, they're basically glorified clubs used to whack the opponents until they're knocked out.

** This becomes extremely obvious when the original work that the game is adapted from contains a plot-critical fight that the protagonists lose. Such as the Alliance invasion of Orb from ''SEED'' or the Mariemaia insurrection from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz Endless Waltz]]''. The protagonist team would almost always fail to change the outcome of the battle no matter how overpowered they are. One of the best examples is the ''Endless Waltz'' finale in ''Z3''. Despite having robots like [[Anime/ShinMazinger Mazinger Z]], [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Gurren Lagann]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Unicorn Gundam]], and [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Evangelions]] on their side, the protagonists are still wiped out by Mariemaia Army's Serpents [[CutsceneIncompetence in a cutscene]].

* Various ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' and ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' crossover has this as PLAGUE, considering the later's incarnation of eponymous Gundams is plain GameBreaker compared to the former. Common joke amongst those crossovers are Setsuna complaining that G-Project unit doesn't deserve the title of Gundam.

* The AdamWest Batman show had a crossover with ''TheGreenHornet'', despite the fact that the former is very silly and the latter is quite serious. Interestingly enough, this is actually considered one of the best TV crossovers ever made.

* It's difficult for ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' to have a genuine crossover with ''anything'' seeing as how they were only with WesternAnimation/Ameri characters for twenty seconds in an episode of the latter. As the show is itself notorious for the use of the CutawayGag (eight times per episode usually!), a lack of them would stand out if they tried to really incorporate the theme of any other show. The fact that many of these gags already have other fictional characters in [[LawyerFriendlyCameo Lawyer Friendly Cameos]] also hurts it.

* It's also very hard for ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' to have a genuine crossover with anything. It is arguably the most realistic animated show ever made and the inclusion of goofy looking cartoon characters would stick out like a sore thumb. The characters appeared for mere seconds in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. Even WordOfGod implied this was just a gag and there's no way to have a genuine crossover with the show.

* Jack Black on ''Series/{{Community}}'', as a parody of RememberTheNewGuy, turns into this. He upsets the group dynamic with his weird schtick eventually forcing Jeff to drag him out of the Study Room kicking and screaming.



** Inverted years later in the ''Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger'' and ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' crossover, where one of ''Gaim'''s {{Mook|s}} monsters grows to giant size (something they never did before or since) so the Tokkyugers can take it down with their giant robot.

The above can get complicated if one hero (like the {{Punisher}} above) routinely deals with his "RoguesGallery" by [[GottaKillThemAll killing them on sight]], while the other [[ThouShaltNotKill firmly refuses to kill]] or [[NonActionGuy doesn't even fight at all]] (like {{Archie|Comics}} above)[[note]]In [[ComicBook/ArchieMeetsThePunisher the crossover that provides the page image]], the Punisher makes a deal with the government that requires him to ''apprehend'' the suspect instead of killing him, and it's only because of Riverdale's innocence that he allows his quarry to live[[/note]]. If the relative pacifist has favor, the militant hero will be [[InverseLawOfUtilityAndLethality severely]] [[NonLethalWarfare nerfed]]; whereas if the militant one is shown right, it may risk invalidating the other's morals or making them seem irrelevant.

** Likewise, ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' solves the problem in a better way. The non-superpowered characters get ahold of special pills that make their bodies though enough to go against the superpowered ones. Granted, this still doesn't explain some of the fights that occur ''before'' they come upon those pills.
