Both anime pull legendary heroes (Fate takes those from world history and lore while Re:Creaters takes those from otaku media) from other worlds into one and seemingly duke it out with each other.

Basically the only anime close enogh to give you what Re:CREATORS is doing.Both are great underrated gems (especially Re:CREATORS) which focus on the creation and impact of stories. Recommend both mostly to artists and writers (creators basically lol). You can think of Shirobako as a spiritual prequel to Re:CREATORS as Re:CREATORS explores in a fresh new way (with the bonus of really cool action scenes...which I know aren't the focus..but an epic addition nonetheless..not to mention it's META AF damn!)
Attention to detail is key as well. If you catch onto info quickly, you'll have a blast

Both have main characters crossing worlds and being confused about it.

Re:Creators has a really original premise: fantasy chars appear in modern Tokyo, not knowing they were watched by Otaku as anime/game characters, and now have an opportunity to find their writers and animators and beat them to a pulp if they want; one young otaku gets an accidental prime spot as an improvised "Japanese host" for the girls (after some sketchy events ofc), then a plot appears and there are fights between those characters everywhere!

Gate has the Japanese SDF cross a gate to a fantasy world, face its armies and after  read more

Same scenario but flipped. Normal person is sent to fantasy world. Conflict drama and a varying amount of true seriousness with humor.

- creatures made by humans appear in the real world
- main character is also creating a character, who is also getting real
- main character fights against the "evil" creatures, because they wan't to destroy the real world (the world of their creators)

Both Re:Creators and Fate/Stay Night UBW are about people summoning important figures from history/literature into the real world, where they fight each other.
Both follow a story of a highschool boy who accidentally meets one of the important figures (Saber/Selesia).

Both series are about... characters from different universes united in a world, where they fight each other. The only difference is that one is more darker, gory and includes real people that once existed on this planet such as Nobunaga Oda and Joan of Arc, the other has fictional characters from anime series and games.

Both have characters who have crossed over into another world being confused by the unknown environment. Both have legendary heroes

- several heroes from history (F/A)/games, anime and PVs (RC) got spawned in the real world and must fight
- heroes are divided into 2 major teams
- similar fighting systems; involving magic and sword combat

A group of strong characters from different places gathered in one place. They're not familiar with each other, but they have the same goal (to defeat the Demon god in Rokka no Yuusha/to find the creators in Re:Creators). But, instead of achieving their goal, they just fight each other to prove that they're on the right side.

The reality for some might not be holding all the truth, that is the premise of both manga. Either madoka or re:creators show to the public a different kind of history involving mahou shoujo. The only thing important to mention is that in re: creators the mahou shoujo plot is well developed but it still is only a small portion of the main theme presented.

-Similar setting with dark theme.
-Both have characters who have supernatural powers (Celty in Durarara!!, The "Creations" in Re:Creators).
-Main Protagonist are kind of similar: they looked like a normal high school boy, but they actually hiding something that will make a change to the story.
-Both have a lot of dialogues. If you like dialogues in anime, then you'll probably like both anime.
-IMO, Magane is like the female version of Izaya lol.

Both of these shows explore the nature of storytelling and the relationship between the creator and the created, with self-aware writing and meta use of character tropes.

Both have the same interdimensional beings coming in from another world, whom were causing chaos and running amok, it also involves one characters that binds the good and another one that binds the bad.
