Multi-system emulators focus on emulating many different systems under one program. They can be focused on a single company's systems because of the similarity of the systems or may have systems from many different companies.

To be defined as "multi-system" an emulator has to emulate two or more distinct systems. For the purpose of this list, Add-ons (eg. Sega CD, 32X) are not counted as a separate system.
