Crossovers in video games occur 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:

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Developed by Capcom.
  2. ^ Developed by Namco.
  3. ^ Nissan revoked their licensing rights for the Sileighty from Initial D: Street Stage and Initial D Arcade Stage 4 (where it was branded as "Initial D") 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.
