A gaming crossover (short: crossover) occurs when otherwise separated fictional characters, stories, settings, universes, or media in a video game meet and interact with each other. These may exist as a gimmick if two separate games in question are developed by the same company. Otherwise, they may exist as a gag from a rival company.

The following is a list of games in which crossovers appear in either the form of a cameo of any kind, a guest character, or the theme of "crossover" in general in a video game itself:

First and Second-party crossovers[edit]

This includes crossovers and cameos of characters from games owned by one company and close affiliates.

Minor Crossover[edit]

A character from another First or Second party franchise makes a brief appearance in the game or an object or item from another game is featured.

Major Crossover[edit]

A character from another First or Second party franchise appears as a playable character or boss in the game.

Third-party crossovers[edit]

This includes games which have crossovers from two or more separate companies.

Comic book/video game crossovers[edit]

Video games that have comic book franchise characters encountering or facing off against other comic book franchise characters or third-party video game characters in a crossover video game or as a guest character in a third-party video game include:

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Developed by Capcom.
  2. ^ Developed by Namco.
  3. ^ Nissan revoked their licensing rights for the Sileighty from Initial D Arcade Stage 4 onwards, and re-licensing it as a Nissan vehicle in Gran Turismo 5 instead due to lack of the manufacturer for the Sileighty in earlier Gran Turismo games.
