Under film: Invoked in Oh, God! by God himself: Jerry (reading from a list of questions): "'Is Jesus Christ the son of God?'" God: "Jesus was my son. Buddha was my son. Mohammed, Moses, you, the man who said there was no room at the inn, was my son."

Sounds more like god says he is the creator of mankind and the people that became known as buddha etc are his making. If there is part of the quote missing, it should be expanded, otherwise it should be deleted or moved to the right trope (don't know if there is one). Am i seeing that right?

So, this trope does not require that the "crossed-over" cosmologies be real-life ones, right? That is, they can be effectively unique to their stories, with little to no relation to real-life mythologies/religions?

I think so. For example The World of Darkness had abrahamic vampires, pagan/gaean werewolves, whatever the heck is up with Mages, Demons/angels who somehow confirm but don't abrahamic God's existence and see every other gameline's explanation of events true.

Do you think there could be a trope about how authors shy away from repreenting Abrahamic religions when using this one?

There probably could. If we have one already I can't think of it off the top of my head. You can swing this by YKTTW (you know that thing where...?) and suggest it.
