  • A MasterCard commercial featured several food mascots (from Count Chocula to the Pillsbury Doughboy) eating dinner — with Mr. Clean doing the dishes.

  • The Origin promo for Toonami Asia seems to imply this, as we're shown characters from Justice League Unlimited, Ben 10, and Generator Rex all existing in the same universe, before the end of the Age of Superheroes happened.

Mythology and Religion

  • The Argonautica (a.k.a. Jason and the Argonauts) by Apollonius of Rhodes (3rd century BCE) is one of the very first Massive Multiplayer Crossovers, arranged in what would become a fairly classic method — basically throwing one or two dozen heroes from various separate Greek myth cycles together on a boat with a common mission. This of course makes the Massive Multiplayer Crossover Older Than Feudalism.
    • Many of the same characters also appear in the story of the Kalydonian Boar Hunt - which, Depending on the Author, may occur before or after The Argonautica.
  • According to some religious studies texts, this has also gone on in many, many other myths: the most notable involve various saints meeting each other. This goes on even today.

New Media

  • The Machinima "Beans". Firstly, it crosses over characters from three different series and is made by three different machinima directors, then the storyline involves various internet memes... Oh. And it's made on Super Smash Bros.. Making it a crossover on a crossover.
  • Technically, any community-made Machinima will have this in spades. Want to see Duke Nukem appear together with some Daleks? It's been done.




Stand Up Comedy

  • There's a Star Trek-related comedy routine in which Mr. Spock, the HAL 9000 computer, and Obi-Wan Kenobi all appear on Jeopardy, in a mental variant of an Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny. Kenobi is declared the winner, but only because he uses the Jedi Mind Trick on Alex Trebek.

    • The Original Kings of Comedy
    • The Blue Collar Comedy Tour
    • The Comedians of Comedy
