* ''WebVideo/AvatarTheAbridgedSeries'' is, like its many brethren, at heart a fan series that isn't afraid to make friendly jabs at [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender the source material]]. While much of its humour is derived by ''changing'' aspects of the original show, a lot of it still comes for exaggerating character traits and pointing out the show's plot holes and illogical-ness. For example, [[OnlySaneMan Sokka]] points out some anachronisms in episode 10:
-->'''Sokka:''' Let me get this straight. You can invent tanks (invented 1915), jet skis (1973), and a gigantic freakin' drill (20xx). But the concept of a hot air balloon (1783) eluuuuuuudes you.\\
'''The Mechanist:''' Umm... yes.\\
'''Sokka:''' I hate this world and everyone in it.
* ''WebVideo/MyLittlePonyCamaraderieIsSupernatural'' literally invokes this as one of the Elements of Parody: "Faithfulness to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the Source Material]]."
-->'''Twilight Sparkle:''' The best parodies are those which positively build on the original work, rather than rely on things like gratuitous cursing and unrelated pop culture jokes. There's a reason the original show caught people's interest in the first place, and paying tribute to that isn't a cop-out... IT'S COMEDY!
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' proved this in Episode 50 with an immensely encouraging speech from Joey about copyright infringement but at its core showed how affectionate the series really is.
-->'''Joey:''' Yeah, I have a closing statement. Maybe we have committed copyright infringement. But you gotta know we've done everything in our power to support the ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' franchise! And if it weren't for us, I don't think the show would be nearly as strong as it is right now!\\
'''Johnson:''' And where is your evidence of such?\\
'''Joey:''' Look around, Johnson! There are more Yu-Gi-Oh fans now than ever before! And the more you try to stifle our creativity, the more we'll try to express our love for a show that's about more than children's card games! It's about fighting for what you believe in, and I believe in this show and its fans now more than ever! Because they believe in me!
* ''WebVideo/SonicTheGhettoHog'' The Creator truly loves Sonic, which is why he made a parody of it.
* ''WebVideo/StarWarsUncut'' is a parody remake of ''Star Wars'' using 15 second videos from people all over the world. Some are more faithful than others, but they parody it because they love it.

The VideoMode, "Flippy Ghost," ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'': Calvin's alter egos are often used to spoof their various genres. Tracer Bullet covers FilmNoir, Spaceman Spiff is a parody of''VideoGame/FlappyBird''.of Sci-fi adventure stuff like ''ComicStrip/FlashGordon'', and Stupendous Man... well, [[Franchise/{{Superman}} guess.]] Occasionally, the comics Calvin was actually reading would be used to give a not-so-affectionate critique of the ultraviolent [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks Dark Age of Comic Books]].
* ''ComicStrip/KnightsOfTheDinnerTable'' is essentially a good-natured sendup of tabletop gamer culture. The creators even produced their own licensed verion of the [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons 1st Edition AD&D rules,]] ''TabletopGame/{{Hackmaster}}''.

* Wrestling/{{WWE}} wrestler Wrestling/GregoryHelms's former [[InsistentTerminology character]], The Hurricane, was an Affectionate Parody of {{Superhero}}es, especially Franchise/{{Superman}} and the Adam West Series/{{Batman}}. His character previous to that was an Affectionate Parody of comic-book ''fanboys'', as he trotted out his encyclopedic knowledge of the Franchise/GreenLantern and compared situations from the comic to everything he came across in his wrestling career (in fact, his costume as Hurricane was heavily influenced by the costume worn by Kyle Rayner as the Franchise/GreenLantern).
* In 2005 Shocker, Máscara Mágica and El Terrible held a competition in mockery of competition based reality shows that had the same format as WWE's ''Million Dollar Tough Enough'' called "Guapos University" in which they searched for a new member of their Wrestling/{{CMLL}} group, Los Guapos.
* The Wrestling/LayCool characters were affectionate parodies of the AlphaBitch with them being fashion obsessed, finishing each other's sentences, their own BuffySpeak catchphrases and a whole lotta LesYay. And they were still some of the best written heels on Smackdown.
* Wrestling/DragonGate turned Wrestling/{{CZW}} wrestler Rich Swann into Swann Hanson, a parody of Wrestling/StanHansen. For the record, Stan is a "smash mouth" striker while Swann is a [[IHaveTheHighGround high flying]] {{garbage wrestler}}.

Depending on who you ask, the ''TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}}'' roleplaying game series is either an affectionate parody or a TakeThat at the selfish, loot-grubbing behavior of fan videos some gamers. Though it very likely is a both.
* The game TabletopGame/{{Illuminati}} is one of conspiracy theories.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Rocketmen}}'' is an affectionate
parody of ComicStrip/BuckRogers, and the whole superhero genre. Each episode is a therapy session of various heroes and villains from the Franchise/{{the DC|U}} or Franchise/MarvelUniverse (plus [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader and Palpatine]] in the last one), looking at their various psychological issues.
** "Two-Face Therapy!" also introduces a parody of Series/DoctorPhil replacing temporarily the usual therapist.

* ''AvatarTheAbridgedSeries'' is, like its many brethren, at heart a fan series that isn't afraid to make friendly jabs at [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender the source material]]. While much of its humour is derived by ''changing'' aspects of the original show, a lot of it still comes for exaggerating character traits and pointing out the show's plot holes and illogical-ness.
** For example, [[OnlySaneMan Sokka]] points out some anachronisms in episode 10:
-->'''Sokka:''' Let me get this straight. You can invent tanks (invented 1915), jet skis (1973), and a gigantic freakin' drill (20xx). But the concept of a hot air balloon (1783) eluuuuuuudes you.
-->'''The Mechanist:''' Umm... yes.
-->'''Sokka:''' I hate this world and everyone in it.
* ''MyLittlePonyCamaraderieIsSupernatural'' literally invokes this as one of the Elements of Parody: "Faithfulness to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the Source Material]]."
-->'''Twilight Sparkle:''' The best parodies are those which positively build on the original work, rather than rely on things like gratuitous cursing and unrelated pop culture jokes. There's a reason the original show caught people's interest in the first place, and paying tribute to that isn't a cop-out... IT'S COMEDY!
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' proved this in Episode 50 with an immensely encouraging speech from Joey about copyright infringement but at its core showed how affectionate the series really is.
-->'''Joey:''' Yeah, I have a closing statement. Maybe we have committed copyright infringement. But you gotta know we've done everything in our power to support the ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' franchise! And if it weren't for us, I don't think the show would be nearly as strong as it is right now!
-->'''Johnson:''' And where is your evidence of such?
-->'''Joey:''' Look around, Johnson! There are more Yu-Gi-Oh fans now than ever before! And the more you try to stifle our creativity, the more we'll try to express our love for a show that's about more than children's card games! It's about fighting for what you believe in, and I believe in this show and its fans now more than ever! Because they believe in me!
* ''WebVideo/SonicTheGhettoHog'' The Creator truly loves Sonic, which is why he made a parody of it.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' features many affectionate parodies in its various cartoons, mostly of things from the creators' childhoods. A prime example would be ''Cheat Commandos'', a parody of merchandise-driven kids' TV shows such as ''GIJoe''.
* ''WebAnimation/BarbieLifeInTheDreamhouse'' serves as an Affectionate Parody of the entire ''Franchise/{{Barbie}}'' franchise, poking fun at everything from her [[NewJobAsThePlotDemands her ridiculous job history]] to the fact that [[ComicBookTime she's remained]] [[VagueAge vaguely twenty-ish]] [[ComicBookTime for over fifty years]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPGUpAWFZPgpT9zbCLZYwhX8I9DLOzuON Wronchi Animation]] has uploaded a series of ''WebAnimation/TheDota2Reporter'' videos that parodies the entire gameplay of Dota 2 and even lampshades any RealityIsUnrealistic moments with "You'll just have to accept this and move on".
* ''WebAnimation/ResidentEvilMusicals'' has every character from the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' franchise dumbed down and singing to musicals. It features a side-series called ''Resident Evil: Survivor'' which is both an affectionate parody of the ''{{Series/Survivor}}'' reality show and ''Resident Evil'' itself.
* ''WebAnimation/The30SecondBunniesTheatre'' pokes fun at movies by reenacting them in thirty seconds with cartoon bunnies. Most of the time these are [[LighterAndSofter slasher movies]].
* ''WebAnimation/PonyDotMov''. The series' over-the-top art style and CrossesTheLineTwice sense of humor may suggest the opposite kind of parody, but its creator has stated on his Tumblr blog that he's a legitimate fan of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the show it makes fun of]].
* The ''WebAnimation/{{Ducktalez}} Animations'' make fun of Franchise/ResidentEvil (episode 2), Manga/DragonBallZ (episode 3), Franchise/TheMatrix, WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant (episode 5), Film/TheDarkKnight (episode 6), the Franchise/{{Terminator}} series, and more.

* Wrestling/{{WWE}} wrestler Wrestling/GregoryHelms's former [[InsistentTerminology character]], The Hurricane, was an Affectionate Parody of {{Superhero}}es, especially Franchise/{{Superman}} and the Adam West Series/{{Batman}}. His character previous to that was an Affectionate Parody of comic-book ''fanboys'', as he trotted out his encyclopedic knowledge of the Comicbook/GreenLantern and compared situations from the comic to everything he came across in his wrestling career (in fact, his costume as Hurricane was heavily influenced by the costume worn by Kyle Rayner as the Comicbook/GreenLantern).
