* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' is the one ''huge'' metaseries with literally ''tens'' of alternative continuities, explored in various TV series, [=OVAs=], [[AllThereInTheManual novels, mangas, doujinshis]] etc. It also includes other series and titles by the same author and studio, and even the works by the other creators with sometimes completely different premises. It was [[WordOfGod explicitly stated]] by its creator, Masaki Kajishima, that ''[[AllMythsAreTrue all]]'' [[AllMythsAreTrue these titles and interpretations are true]] and represent different aspects of the same Multiverse, and he doesn't mind sharing. On the other hand, he restricts himself to the ''[[TenchiMuyo Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Oh-Ki]]'' (that is, original [=OVAs=]) storyline and its spinoffs like ''TenchiMuyoGXP,'' and considers it the main and central storyline.

** After several cosmic upheavals, taking DC's number of universes from infinite to one to fifty-two, the DC Multiverse now consists of infinite universes grouped into sets of 'bubble' Multiverses suspended in in a larger structure that Creator/{{Grant Morrison}} refers to as the Multi-Multiverse, these bubbles each having a different number of universes within. The 'local Multiverse' that the main DC Universe is set in is made up of 52 universes, some of which are recognizable from various {{Elseworld}}s stories, some of which are wholly new creations or amalgamations of worlds from before the original Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths, [[spoiler: itself undone by the events of ComicBook/{{Convergence}}, restoring the infinite Earths destroyed there]]. Comicbook/{{Earth 2}} of the ComicBook/{{New 52}} deals with events that happen on one of these Earths, and Creator/{{Grant Morrison}}'s ''Comicbook/TheMultiversity'' series has six of its issues each dedicated to one Earth within the local Multiverse, plus a multiverse guidebook, with plans to explore these Earths and those beyond further in ''Multiversity Too''. These 'local' universes are:

*** Earth-10, a world where Kal-L was found by the Nazis, and grew up to become Overman. With the help of retro-engineered Kryptonian technology -- and, when he was old enough, Overman himself -- the Nazis won UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone In guilt over the Nazis' atrocities]], Overman turned his Earth into a pseudo-utopia; the last English-speaking rebels, [[Comicbook/FreedomFighters Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters]], fight Overman's New Reichsman.

* The Multi-Dimensional labyrinth concept described by the Anti-Spiral in TengenToppaGurrenLagann has the potential to incorporate all of Gurren Lagann's Parallel Works, as well as any and all forms of fan-fiction, as canon because the {{Alternate Universe}}s that make up the Multi-Dimensional Labyrinth are created the instant they are perceived.

* ''Franchise/WhenTheyCry'' uses and abuses this concept for its [[GroundhogDayLoop Groundhog Day Loops]]. The multiverse can be viewed only in the sea of kakera/pieces/fragments. In that sea, each fragment is essentially one possible path that the world can take. ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' introduces the idea of voyager witches, such as Bernkastel and Lambdadelta, who are the only beings capable of traveling the different fragments, and creator witches, who are the only ones capable of creating new fragments.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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''.
