Overlaps with MassiveMultiplayerCrossover when more than 2 works are involved. If the characters end up in a relationship instead of fighting, it's a CrossoverShip. Characters discussing other characters in one of these battles is a HypotheticalFightDebate. Compare to CharacterTiers and GuestFighter. See also CoolVsAwesome. Contrast with StoryBreakerTeamUp.

Such bouts between characters from different works will often involve [[TrappedInAnotherWorld one or more of the fighters being pulled into a different continuity]], [[LetsYouAndHimFight the strangers fighting for no logical reason]] and [[PowerCreepPowerSeep handicaps or caveats being introduced to make the fights more interesting]]. Also usually ends with [[PopularityPower the most popular of the combatants winning]] frequently due to the opponent conveniently not using his [[ForgotAboutHisPowers powers]] or [[ForgottenPhlebotinum resources]] to the fullest. Far more often, however, [[EvasiveFightThreadEpisode no one winning at all]] in order avoid ticking off the loser's fanbase; this is typically accomplished by a common enemy appearing and thus allowing both characters to save face.

* The SeriesFinale of ''FanFic/TheConversionBureauWorldsWhereItWouldntWork'', pits {{Fannon}} character Tyrantlestia, against Cannon Celestia in ''Screw Attack's Death Battle'' style fight. [[spoiler:A decently written character, beats a GodModeSue.]]

* ''[[VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefront Star Wars Battlefront II]]'' has this as a mode on one map. In normal gameplay, a lucky player can become a HeroUnit such as Obi-Wan or Darth Vader. Mos Eisley offers an Assault mode, which is usually only seen in Space battles. This version has every single Hero Unit duking it out on one map. Every. Single. One. Yoda, General Grievous, Ki-Adi Mundi, Boba Fett, if he or she appeared on another map, he or she'll appear here.
* Thanks to the VideoGame/PuzzleAndDragons collaboration series, players can send a team consisting of [[Anime/DragonBallZ Goku]], [[Franchise/FinalFantasy Cloud]], [[VideoGame/AngryBirds Red]], [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Shinji (and Unit 001)]], and [[Franchise/HelloKitty Hello Kitty]] off to fight [[Creator/DCComics Darkseid]]. Unfortunately, while both Goku and Superman are in the game, neither appear in the dungeons for the collaborations (most of them are villains only). So that showdown is avoided.

** About halfway through the campaign mode, shortly after the Grand Army of the Republic turns into the Imperial Army, there's a sequence over a few missions where the player takes on a group of hiding Jedi, a reactivated army of battle droids on Mustafar and then another army of clone troopers on Kamino before the Rebellion gets off the ground.

* [[TropeNamer The trope is named for]] the song and flash animation "[[Music/TheUltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny]]" by Music/LemonDemon, in which many famous fictional character, pop culture icons and historical persons come together for the sole purpose of knocking the living crap out of each other. (The last one standing is [[spoiler:[[Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood Mister Rogers]] in a bloodstained sweater]].)

* ''[[ComicBook/BatmanVampire Batman and Dracula: Red Rain]]'': finally put to rest an age-old debate: The Dark Knight or the Prince of Darkness? Dracula and Batman fight over Gotham City to find out who the true master of fear and deception is. [[spoiler: They both lose. Dracula is killed and Batman becomes an irredeemable vampire.]]
* Dracula vs. Superman: By hypnotizing Lois, Dracula actually gained the upper hand and succeeded in drinking Superman's blood. However, Superman is solar powered, and seconds after drinking his blood well... [[YourHeadASplode imagine eating a grenade]].

* Then there's one in ''ComicBook/SupermanBatman'' issue 78, which handled the subject masterfully. The fight happens, but suddenly you see a narration, or rather, two narrations arguing against each other. Eventually, it is shown that two kids, one a fan of Superman and the other a fan of Batman, arguing who wins. After much {{Ass Pull}}s done with each argument, [[spoiler:the two kids agreed that the two are friends and would not fight each other]]. Towards the end, we see Superman and Batman observing the kids. Superman wonders who would win and asks Batman on what he thinks, but Batman just flies away. [[spoiler:Batman believes Superman will win]].
