8 Video Game Character Cameos That Made You Go "What?!"

What are you doing here?!

Midway

When it comes to video games, crossovers, cameos, and nods to other franchises are par for the course. You can look at pretty much any title and find Easter eggs and references to other games as developers play a strange game of "who's got the best inside joke" going.

However, as you might expect with wildly different franchises meeting in the middle and throwing their keys in the bowl, this can have a wild and completely whacky impact on the title's tone and even their in-game universes. For example, did you know that the same island home to the outbreak of deadly dinosaurs in Dino Crisis appears in Ace Attorney?

That sort of information can cause your mind to unravel, your system to become overloaded, and for your mouth to utter that infamous saying: "What?!"

So let's take a look at characters who took a little journey from their titles or respective universes and played havoc with the internal logic of others. These are 8 Video Game Character Cameos That Made You Go: "What?!"
