Added DiffLines:

* Made possible in ''TabletopGame/DarkHeresy'' by the ''Daemon Hunter'' sourcebook, which included rules for playing as a Grey Knight -- a super-soldier with psychic powers, armour that, combined with his natural toughness, will stop pretty much every weapon the rest of the team might be carrying, and a gun that can blow any normal enemy into chunky salsa. Unless the rest of the team is composed entirely of high-level psychics and tech-priests, pretty much every combat situation the team gets into will either be instantly settled by the Grey Knight, or instantly fatal for everyone ''but'' the Grey Knight.

* Parodied on the first episode of ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'', with the superhero team of BMX Bandit and Angel Summoner. BMX Bandit can ride a BMX ''really'' well, while Angel Summoner can summon and control a horde of invincible celestial superbeings. For obvious reasons, BMX Bandit feels he doesn't add much to the team.

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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
