* IntercontinuityCrossover: In a bizarre and unique example, the module RealityStorm produced a crossover between ''Champions'' and Guardians Of Order's ''Silver Age Sentinels''. The plot featured the two worlds crossing over in a manner that referenced virtually every CrossoverCrisis to date, complete with characters from both Game Universes meeting and fighting. As a bonus, the book also included a guide to converting characters from one system to another. This event is considered a part of the ''Champions'' continuity; the result is a lot of WritingAroundTrademarks where the event will be discussed, but none of the SAS characters or places involved will be explicitly named.

* DeadlyTrainingArea: The supplement ''Champions II'' had rules for [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Danger Rooms]]. If the [=PCs=] wanted to, it was possible to set the level high enough to kill the person (or people) inside. If super villains invaded the base, one suggested tactic was to lure them into your Danger Room and turn it on full power.
