Nicktoons vs Cartoon Network (Abbreviated NvCN) is a hypothetical video game idea created by LeeHatake93. It would be a crossover of series from Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network, and would be released for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, and Nintendo 3DS. There would also be a second version that would include some characters from Cartoon Network's Toonami and anime from Adult Swim, in addition to all characters being re-designed in the anime stylings of Cartoon Network's FusionFall online game, as well as their original forms as alternate costumes. This version is called Nicktoons vs Cartoon Network: Universal Destruction.

The regular Cover for Nicktoons vs Cartoon Network


An unknown force deep within the the Multiverse would cause a dimensional imbalance. The sheer strength of this course would open up portals to many worlds, causing each to mingle with one another. In Bellwood, superhero Ben Tennyson notices the opening of a wormhole and goes to investigate. To his surprise, he comes into contact with a short alien and his robotic companion. The pair turn out to be Zim and GIR (from Invader Zim) and battle him. Once they settle their fight, Ben and Zim team up as dimensional imbalances begin to tear Ben's dimension apart, forcing the trio to leave as Ben's universe slowly deteriorates.


The gameplay would be similar to Super Smash Bros and Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion in which up to four characters can battle at once. The fighting would be on a 2.5D plane and each character would have an ultimate attack, as well as combo attacks between characters of different shows. Universal Destruction would have different gameplay, however. It would have two battle mechanics. Basic fighting would be similar to Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm where characters would have two supports and fight on a 3D plane. It would also include a battle mode with gameplay similar to Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3, which also allows up to four characters to battle on a 2.5D plane, but utilizes the controls of the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series.


The Cartoon Network roster is taken directly from Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion with extras that have been added. The Nicktoons are taken from the Nicktoons crossover games, with extras that are new to the series. An asterisk (*) marks characters that are only included in the original and are absent from the Universal Destruction expansion.
