On the anime front, Ranma 1/2 is ludicrously good at combining with almost any other anime set in the modern-ish day. It's such an absurd kitchen sink of magic, crazy martial arts, curses, super-science, and badass normals that almost anything can be slotted into it and work. It's designed around loose and vague rules for comedic purposes that can easily be adapted to accommodate almost any other universe's unique powerset by incorporating it into it's own mishmash. It's very hard, after seeing Martial Tea Ceremony, Martial Fast Food Delivery, and Martial Overeating, to say that a given power doesn't work with Ranma's absurd range of types of combat.

Ranma's notable for crossing over so much with Sailor Moon that the term "Fukufic" was invented just to refer to that specific crossover. It perfectly fits into Full Metal Panic, gets along with Tenchi Muyo like a house afire (and make no mistake, a house will be afire after the Nerima Wrecking Crew passes through), and is commonly crossed with the modern section of Inuyasha due to having the same author; and Ranma and Inuyasha having similar outfits, personalities, love interests, and using the same voice actor.

Kinda notable that Ranma 1/2, on fanfiction.net, has 15K stories but 2K crossovers, nearly 1 in 7. Meanwhile Naruto comparably has 434K stories and 35K crossovers, less than 1 in 12. The now-defunct Anime Addventure began with Ranma and crossed it over with nearly every other show ever made from Star Wars to Naruto to Harry Potter to I Dream of Jeannie and they all worked. Very few shows have managed the kind of crossover power Ranma 1/2 has.

Man in the High Castle and the Draka series did have room for interdimensional hijinks, so there is a great deal of potential for WW2 themed crossovers in that regard... plus with other similar universes like that of Wolfenstein or the earlier Red Alert games or even stuff like Deep Blue Fleet or even Resistance with that Chimera invasion stuff.

I've thought about Starcraft and 40k crossing over quite a lot, as there's many small overlaps you can use to do very extensive canon-welding with the aid of the 20+ millennia of time separating them, while 40k's logistical issues allow Starcraft to get away with unbelievable amounts of shit because the setting's high-end enough to flat-out require 40k's elites to show, and can just pack up and go wherever in short order.

Add in Godzilla, as well. I've always thought that would be a good Crossover, given the more intense usage of atomic weapons in the Eurasian War and then having the Draka win the Final War just for Godzilla to come out of the depths supercharged and pissed off would be...fitting.

I’d like to see a squad of Enclave soldiers thrown into a completely different setting, like the walking dead, that’d be fun.

Speaking of Zombie apocalypse, I’d say a lot of them click with each others?

I like it too,but it is impossible for one reason:Orks.
Damn pets were elsywhere from 60.000.000 years,so if Starcraft was past of WH40 then orks must live then and di their usual things.
Not mention Eldars - they hunted human for sport before their Empire collapsed,so they would hunt them in Starcraft,too

Protoss, also Zerg, but mainly the Protoss. Lore wise they had a huge fleet, which was doing something to safeguard younger races. They never pulled their whole fleet into any of the conflicts durign the games until Amon hijacked it.

The Zerg for theit part are natural predators for the Orks, with the Creep being capable of eating up all the Ork spores. I don't think the Zerg are up to breaking the Old Ones's copy protection on Orkoid essence, so the Zerg wouldn't go out of their way to hunt down Orks for new and interesting gene sequences.

...You do realize the Protoss actually had a well-developed procedure for planet-glassing campaigns literally before they took the Zerg as a serious threat, right? As in the glassing of Mar Sara was something they pulled off a shelf from somewhere as an off-the-cuff answer to entire biospheres being devoured and replaced with hostile lifeforms, and they looked at this as not a big deal.

The Protoss dealing with Orks would explain a few incongruities rather well. And the Aeldari had been decaying over the course of dozens of millions of years, them having already left shit be for the Protoss' few millennia of realspace hegemony to seem important in ways it wasn't is trivially explainable.

The Xel'naga still being multiversal and unfucking a sizable chunk of the War in Heaven damage to the Aeldari's bemusement before realizing they dodged a bullet with Amon's murder-suicide plan having all sorts of Wrong-Context Magic involved that'd brutalize their arrogance is readily a complete footnote by 40k.

Not mention Eldars - they hunted human for sport before their Empire collapsed,so they would hunt them in Starcraft,too
I mean, it's hardly like they're going to be any more noticed or challenged than they were by DAoT!Humanity...

And abducting a handful of Protoss from a population center is able to cascade into the probably-powerscaling-defiling power shuffling behind their Xel'naga murder-spree. We see from the Tal'darim that the Protoss are capable of concentrating absurdly huge proportions of their population's power behind whoever they wish (the Rite of Rak'shir is actually mostly a popularity contest), meaning they have the ability to force millions-to-one odds on telepathic assaults that'd break 40k's power scaling and history all over the place for the mortibound Aeldari Dominion to competently defend against.

Destiny crosses over surprisingly effectively with any earth-based scifi, historic and/or technothriller setting. Just rule it as having taken place before the Traveler showed up, then have its characters resurrected as Guardians.

BattleTech is real good for crossovers with a number of settings, especially if there isn't too much focus on spaceships and more focus on mecha. For example, it goes really well with:
-Eighty-Six (bug mech Terminator apocalypse, basically)
-Brigador (Banana Republic in Space war crime simulator)
-Zoids (animal shaped mechs on another planet)

Star Trek, Stargate, and just about any space based setting where there's space/physics bullshit that allows for punting people into alternate realities is good for a crossover.

Stargate and any ground vehicle heavy setting, like Valkyria Chronicles go together like butter on bread.

If you want crack crossovers, Monster Girl Encyclopedia can go with anything, from fantasy to historical to present day to future scifi, although you'll have to tone down the lewds to post it in most places.
