Similarly, another potential problem is their [[SuperWeight relative power]]. If one is vastly more powerful, the other will become TheLoad, so one or both character may have to undergo PowerCreepPowerSeep to avoid one being [[OvershadowedByAwesome made irrelevant]] while the other [[StoryBreakerPower becomes a god]]. This doesn't just happen when there's a wide difference on the scale of a character with the SuperpowerLottery and a {{Muggle}} teaming up; even a simple power like one way {{Telepathy}} can cripple a crossover. Imagine how ''MurderOnTheOrientExpress'' (or any other detective story) would go if Poirot was teamed up with a Telepath.

* The Muppets from ''Series/SesameStreet'' never broke character which created problems when Big Bird appeared on ''MisterRogersNeighbourhood''. Rogers wanted Caroll Spinney to break character, but he refused so they compromised by only having Big Bird appear in the Land Of Make Believe segments.

* While it can be done, mixing the different character types from '' TabletopGame/Exalted'' o''TabletopGame/WorldOfDarkness'' will also be...challenging.

* ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse'' solves this in one sense while being disadvantaged by it in another. The difference in powers between ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' and [[Franchise/TheDCU DCU]] characters is explained by mentioning that the universe merging directly affects the abilities of everyone involved, as well as spreading a HatePlague in order for LetsYouAndHimFight to ensue. However, DC's treatment of their intellectual properties meant that the ''Mortal Kombat'' side has to temporarily lose [[RatedMForMoney its extreme blood and gore]]... which, unfortunately for that series, is its entire selling point, period.

* A comic book actually featured a character from ''TheGuidingLight'' who had become a superhero, team up with Franchise/SpiderMan and ''Franchise/IronMan'', inspired by an episode where she gained [[HowUnscientific superpowers from an accident involving Halloween decorations.]]

* In ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', the LegionOfDoom consists of a time-traveling speedster (Eobard Thawne) and two trained assassins (Malcolm Merlyn and Damian Darhk). Thawne has no problem treating the other two like lackeys, outright bragging that he could kill them faster than they could blink. They eventually join forces to coerce him into an actual partnership - with a little "help" from [[spoiler: the Clock Roach hunting Thawne.]]

** 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.

* 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.
