* Creator/TheBBC Radio 4 series ''Hordes of the Things'', by A.P.R. Marshall (Andrew Marshall of ''Series/TwoPointFourChildren'' and ''TheBurkissWay'') and J.H.W. Lloyd (John Lloyd of ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' and ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'') was a parody of ''LordOfTheRings''. It's notable because it was broadcast six months ''before'' the Radio 4 adaptation of ''LOTR'', and manages to predict some of the voice characterization to a spooky degree. (Or they heard about it in the canteen.)

* WebAnimation/HomestarRunner's "fake" and now {{Defictionalized}} Videlectrix had been producing parody games long before TelltaleGames ''VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople''. Since point-and-click adventures had become self-parodying since their early years, it was a natural format.

** Besides the aforementioned ''Pyst'', this has been the staple of Creator/ParrotyInteractive a subsidiary of Palladium Interactive. While they did produce games, er, novelty applications, which parodied popular fantasy and sci-fi franchises of the day, their efforts were short-lived especially as most of Parroty's titles were critically panned.

* ''VideoGame/{{Pyst}}'' is, on the surface, a ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' parody, but is more of a novelty application that [[ShallowParody barely even touched upon]] the original game and its surrounding fandom, with one reviewer likening it to a Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg spoof film in a somewhat interactive form.
