* ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'': The book is one of the standard "Heroes have to save the world" plot, with some "bad guys" now having to save the ''universe'' from the "good guys" after they won. It also generally parodies many fantasy cliches, with the ''{{Literature/Dragonlance}}'' characters being more specifically parodied through one band of heroes who try to stop these {{villain protagonist}}s, along with borrowing the idea that if good wins, it must turn evil itself in the end.

* Brazilian group Os Trapalhões (also translated as "The Tramps") had this in a few of their movies, in addition to many parodies in their TV show - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGvgIc9OYSs one]] of ''Series/{{SWAT}}'' even became a full-fledged movie by [[TheBandMinusTheFace all but the leader]] during a short break-up. During the internet's popularization of foreign {{Mockbuster}}s, they got roped along the way: ''Os Trapalhões na Guerra dos Planetas'' (The Tramps in the Planet War) is ''Brazilian Franchise/StarWars'', ''Os Trapalhões no Planalto dos Macacos'' (The Tramps in the Plateau of the Apes) is ''Brazilian Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'', and ''Os Trapalhões e o Mágico de Oróz'' (The Tramps and the Wizard of Oroz) is ''Brazilian Film/TheWizardOfOz''.

A parody is a twisted imitation of another artistic work. An intentional mockery, though often a [[AffectionateParody loving one]], it imitates the style of the original in order to puncture its mistakes and point out its flaws. Some aspects may be exaggerated, and others downplayed. Usually comedic, but occasionally dark and [[DeconstructiveParody deconstructive]]. Can be sublime, or worse than the original. Sometimes an {{homage}} or ShoutOut doubles as a parody. And sometimes [[WholePlotReference the entire work gets parodied.]]

* A grand Italian tradition is that of redubbing, which consists in gag dubs of movies ranging from the sketches to full-length movies that may not share the film's plot or premise at all (sometimes with extensive new footage shot). Started with ''Film/{{Star Trek II|The Wrath of Khan}}'' way way back in the 1980s, making the gag dub OlderThanTheyThink. Lots of parodies can be found [[http://www.stevenworks.com here]] (naturally in Italian, and many of which are strictly in local dialects).

* ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' specializes in parodies, particularly those of movies and TV shows. Some also have satirical elements...but for some reason the magazine refers to ''all'' of them as satires, not parodies, so it's no wonder Keanu Reeves got confused.
