Crossover Combo Villain

Go To

When one creates a crossover, the issue of who the villain of the event should be comes up. Should it be a villain from one of the involved properties, a team-up, or something new altogether?

Sometimes, the best solution is to combine stuff from the crossing over universes to make a villain appropriate to both. Thus, the Crossover Combo Villain. It could be a character from one work utilizing an element from the other, a literal fusion of characters to create a single new antagonist, or something else entirely— so long as it combines elements from the involved works into a single antagonist, it qualifies.

Note that just having an original villain for a crossover doesn't count, they have to combine elements from the works crossing over in some way.

  • The titular protagonist of Kamen Rider Decade is an odd heroic inversion of the trope, acting as a villain to all previous Riders with the ability to transform into them.
  • In Power Rangers: "Reinforcements from the Future", the two-part crossover between Time Force and Wild Force, there are the "Mut-Orgs" - a group of surviving Orgs who were unsealed by Ransik in the year 3000 and used his mutant DNA to construct new, more powerful bodies for themselves.
