** "Craigslist" is a pastiche of the Doors (Ray Manzarek appeared on the song as a guest musician). It's so well done that sometimes people mistake it for an actual Doors song.

* Creator/RobertCrumb also enjoys making pastiches of other comics now and then, like ''ComicStrip/OmahaTheCatDancer'', for instance.
* ''ComicStrip/DeKiekeboes'': In the album "Vrouwen komen van Mars" the Kiekeboe family gets sucked into Marcel Kiekeboe's favorite childhood comic strip, which is a stylistic pastiche of many 1940s and 1950s Flemish comic strip series.

* "Film/TheArtist" is a huge tribute to silent films, as well as Hitchcock, Ford, and other early black-and-white filmmakers.
* ''Film/TheFifthElement'' was {{Creator/Luc Besson}}'s love letter to ''Metal Hurlant''. Two of his favorite artists, Jean "Moebius" Giraud and Jean-Claude Mézieres, worked as art directors on the film.
* ''Film/DownWithLove'' serves as a glorious pastiche of wacky 60s sex comedies. Most specifically the Doris Day-Rock Hudson ones.
* ''[[Film/KungPowEnterTheFist Kung Pow!]]'' was a stylistically great, but otherwise forgettable parody of 1970s Asian martial arts films.
* ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' movie is a pastiche of Victorian-era stories.
* Most films by Creator/MelBrooks also fit in this trope. The style, the setting, the characters, the camera work are all done with love for the genre he is trying to spoof.

* Some of author (and literature professor) David Lodge's books contain stylistic pastiches of well-known literary figures. Probably the most significant title for pastiche is ''The British Museum is Falling Down'', in which every chapter is written in a different author's style, including Creator/FranzKafka, Creator/ErnestHemingway, and Creator/JamesJoyce. His most important novel, ''Small World'', was in part a pastiche of [[Creator/GeoffreyChaucer Chaucer's]] ''Literature/CanterburyTales''.

* ''Manga/PhantomThiefPokemon7'' is a pastiche of GentlemanThief and PhantomThief fiction. It would probably be a stereotypical example if it weren't for the fact it was a Franchise/{{Pokemon}} spinoff.

A good pastiche can be a hard thing to pull off, and many an excellent artist has crashed and burned in the attempt. Using someone else's style is simply not an easy thing, especially without avoiding accusations of TheyCopiedItNowItSucks. In fact, it's often inevitable that good pastiches will still get this accusation. Nevertheless, a decent pastiche is enjoyable enough for both artist and audience that there is no shortage of artists willing to give it a try.
