This article comprises a list of fictional crossovers that have occurred between different fictional characters/properties over different media.

General crossovers[edit]

Most of these crossovers can be assumed to be in continuity for one or both of the characters or universes involved, although the events of the crossover may not be mentioned afterward by either party. See fictional universe for more closely linked crossovers. Many spinoffs cross over with their parent series or originated as a one-time crossover.

Explicitly outside continuity[edit]

Gag cameo[edit]

A character appears only briefly in another setting, mainly for joke purposes.
