* TheEmiyaClan runs on this. With a few exceptions (the Shonen Jump big three, Warhammer 40k, ''Manga/FairyTail'', DBZ, and a couple others forbidden by the community) every fictional universe is stated or implied to exist somewhere and in some capacity. As such, the possibility for shout outs and crossovers is huge. Whether through [[TimeyWimeyBall time travel]], [[DimensionalTraveler dimension hopping]], [[SpaceIsAnOcean space]], or [[AWizardDidIt magician relatives]], any idea can make an appearance so long as the authors approve it.

** An event called [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Shroud "the Shrouding"]] altered the nature of the Transformers multiverse, doing away with the concept of multiversal singularities and greatly strengthening the boundaries between dimensions.
** The Facebook incarnation of [[FourthWallMailSlot "Ask Vector Prime"]] notes that the Multiverse can occasionally interact with a larger Megaverse, and beyond that is the Omniverse, which consists of every reality imaginable, as well as some that aren't. (Admittedly, it's a bit more complicated than that, but that's the basic gist.)

* The setting of the ''Anime/MazingerZ'' franchise is this: ''Manga/ShinMazingerZero'' established that the original ''Anime/MazingerZ'' timeline and all alternate timelines and realities seen in the story are part of a multiverse which includes the universes of ''Anime/GreatMazinger'', ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'', ''Manga/GetterRobo'', ''Anime/KotetsuJeeg'', ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam UC Gundam]]'', ''Anime/{{Gunbuster}}'' and ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', among others.



* Though not confirmed officially, the ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evaverse]]'' is implied to use this trope between the various continuities and spinoffs. Kaworu appears to be aware of and/or remember ''every single one'', including the anime, the mangas, the games, even the ''[[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild]]'' films. If true, it means he's the [[NightmareFuel fucking creepiest]] StalkerWithACrush and MemeticMolester EVER since he's ''stalking his ([[YaoiGuys male]]) love across several universes''.

** ''DBZ'' indulged in this even earlier, where Future Trunks and Cell's attempts to time-travel turned out to be unintentional dimension-hopping. This series of events accounts for about three parallel worlds: The main DBZ universe, Trunks' timeline, Cell's timeline, plus a fourth speculated upon by official guidebooks[[note]]Which would be the timeline that the Trunks of Cell's timeline visited[[/note]].



* In ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' the eponymous Kamen Rider Decade must travel through nine Heisei-Era Rider Worlds to save the Multiverse...only to discover there are a lot more than nine. Decade also crosses over with ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'', a world without Kamen Riders. (Then ''other'' ''Franchise/KamenRider/Franchise/SuperSentai'' teamups would meet ''without'' saying that dimension-hopping happened. [[MST3KMantra It's best to not think about it]].)

* In ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' ''Franchise/KamenRider'' is an odd handling of this: The Showa era shows all seem to take place in the eponymous Kamen Rider same world, since veteran Riders would show up to help out the new guys, while the Heisei era shows all seem to be their own self-contained universe[[note]]Though ''Series/KamenRiderAgito'' is a little confusing; check its page for details[[/note]]. Then along comes ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'', which portrays every series as its own separate universe, with their own {{Alternate Universe}}s. In the final episode, a villain forcibly merges the universes together, then in the GrandFinale movie Decade must travel through nine Heisei-Era Rider Worlds performs a HeroicSacrifice to save preserve the Multiverse...only memories of the Riders, and from that point on all Riders seem to discover there are exist in a lot more than nine. Decade also crosses over shared universe as evidenced by the annual crossovers, not to mention the ''Super Hero Taisen'' movies where the Riders team up with ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'', a world without Kamen Riders.

** The Alternative Universe is further explored in Seasons 3 and 4, as both universes first suspect each other of trying to destroy the other and then team up to fight a common enemy. Two possible futures of the Prime Universe incorporated similar conditions as the Alternate Universe, in keeping with the idea that the evolution and decay of the Alternate Universe was slightly ahead of the Prime Universe. The show conveniently applied a red/blue color scheme to differentiate the "Red-Verse" and "Blue-Verse."

The most prominent difference is the color of the Statue of Liberty: green in Prime and bronze in Alternate. This was frequently used to show which universe was being shown.

* VasiliGolovachov's ''The Saviors of the Fan'' duology (made up of ''The Envoy'' and ''The Deliverer'') has a myriad parallel worlds some of which are similar to ours, while others vary wildly. And that's just those organized into a linked structure called the Worldfan, of which our world is a part, with the implication that there are countless other worlds. According to the protagonist's half-Japanese friend, some of these worlds may be familiar from folk tales or science fiction/fantasy novels, as information has a tendency to "leak" between the worlds, meaning all those stories are actually true in other worlds. There is a world where the mere act of moving alters the surrounding reality, or a world made up of a gigantic tree.

* Naturally part of the setting of ''TabletopGame/SentinelsOfTheMultiverse''. The final expansion of the game deals with the end of that multiverse (according to WordOfGod, this is why the sequel game, ''Sentinels Tactics'', doesn't include the word), and will see the heroes teaming up with alternate-universe versions of characters to stop an omnicidal BigBad.
