* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', a hyperactive, ReferenceOverdosed parody of the HaremGenre in which a majority of the cast are the human forms of CthulhuMythos creatures (that Nyarko in the title? Short for Nyarlathotep). It tends to split its time between zany comedy and more serious moments, either gory battles with {{Cosmic Horror}}s or the emerging romance between the human Mahiro Yasaka and Nyarko.

* ''VideoGame/SaintsRow'' has slowly drifted into this. The first game was a dead-serious ''GrandTheftAuto'' clone; the second game decided to swing for the fences, and it's gotten increasingly bizarre ever since. Also, it's in the same universe as ''VideoGame/RedFaction''.

* The official ''Grand Blues'' web manga / comic of ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' which is accessible in-game counts as this, complete with many examples of CharacterExaggeration, AffectionateParody, and LampshadeHanging. Notably, this series served as the basis for the 2017 AprilFools event "Big Bad Shadow" - Grand Blues was stated to be an AlternateUniverse from the main game, with the manga version of Vyrn featured as the raid boss.

A comedic show specifically concentrating on [[SurrealHumor being humorous before any concern of plot, drama, or even comprehensibility.]] Noted for a complete lack of tact or pomposity on the part of the writers, and frequent [[PostModernism postmodern]] commentary. Can have occasional {{Fanservice}} which the series will openly acknowledge. The RuleOfFunny will be observed.

* [[Anime/NyanpireTheAnimation The Gothic World Of Nyanpire]]: The anime and manga, at first might sound strange to you. But just watching an episode of the anime can be very amusing depending on the episode. Since Nyanpire is completely different compared to classic vampires and Dracula.

** That said, it's roots as a gag series still shine through from time to time, with villains that do elaborate poses in the style of Super Sentai characters, or moments like Goku having to make his teacher laugh with corny jokes and catch his pet monkey as part of his training. The Majin Buu arc especially reads like a marriage between the silly and serious sides of the manga; Majin Buu is a fat, pink demon that goes around turning people into candy, but he's also a serious threat and slaughters entire cities. Goku and Vegeta do a silly-looking fusion dance that makes them even more powerful, and at one point they kick Buu's ass, ''after being turned into a coffee-flavored jawbreaker.''
