This answer is kind of a bit late and i don't know anyway if anybody is interested in my opinion or if this is the right place to put it or if this even will be read by anybody, but here are my thoughts:
First of all I definetely like to think that fictional characters are real, just because it is a nice feeling to believe it. And I really like the idea to find those characters mirrored in reality in many aspects by persons that of course do not have the exact same story, but are similar in some ways.
But if I try to look at it very rational and let the scientist in me speak, I feel like a few things tend to be forgotten over the whole multiverse theory. The term „infinity“ is always interesting, hard to grasp and reaches the limits of the human mind, but infinite universes do not necassarily mean that there is every imaginable universe. There is only every realizable universe. Scientificly the laws of physics etc. would still need to apply.
And I won't say here, what is possible and what is not, because probably we still know not much about the universe, but I am certain, that there are things that are not possible. And since authors do sometimes make misstakes in what would be possible or just like to stretch reality a bit, there are quite a few stories, that would never happen in any universe.
In my opinion especially to video games there is a big contrast here, because they usually are not able and do not try to picture reality and the physics of it completely. (Especially I would think, that it would be more like the coincidence of a boy playing exactly what happens in our universe as a video game than him controlling any other universe. I would not like the idea of time just stopping forever, because someone got bored with us. The concept of time on the other hand is something for a big and long discussion itself.)
There are many things that could actually be possible, maybe there is the possibility of some form of vampires, but I believe that there are many impossible things, too. That would mean that many stories would never happen in any universe the way they are written. I don't want to be a spoilsport, but I feel like the idea of the multiverse is often connected with such enthusiasm that there is often exaggeration in what actually could be. I really like movies etc. that explore the topic, but sometimes the depiction is just terrible.
However, this was my scientific point of view.
Despite that I still just like the idea to believe in some of the protagonists being out there and I definetely love those integrations of the idea such as the mentioned reference of Billy Chase in New Kid in school. I really hope, I don't appear to narrow-minded here, I just wanted to try a realistic approach so that the topic is covered in a wide angle.
Anyway, those (physically) mysteries of the universe are really great to think about and can keep one busy for a long time. :)
