How effective would it be to use an Android antivirus program to scan a number of files that came from a Windows OS (video, audio, office, images, etc.)?

Similarly how effective would it be to use a good in-built or third party macOS antivirus software on an Apple machine to scan a number of files that came from a Windows OS (programs, video, audio, office, images, etc.)?

I realize this is likely not ideal, however I am asking hypothetically how well this might work.
