* ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfTotalDramaIsland'' (LTDI) is a pastiche of ''[[Literature/ArabianNights The Book of the Thousand and One Nights]]'', specifically the Mardrus & Mathers translation. Although ''The 1,001 Nights'' is a prose work, some of the component stories have a good deal of poetry. LTDI somewhat duplicates this feel by insertion of (mostly famous) poems at various points where they fit or enhance the scene's mood. These poems are usually part of the narrative, but characters occasionally recite them in-universe.

*** "Countdown to TV Action", a short story from ''Short Trips and Sidesteps'', is a {{Pastiche}} of the ridiculous, [[TheyJustDidntCare canon-inaccurate]] TV Comics ''Doctor Who'' strips. Complete with the character being named "Dr Who", being [[{{Jerkass}} gratuitously sexist and mean]], making staggering and implausible {{Bat Deduction}}s "because he's a scientist", and the generally cosy and childish tone.

** In the ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'' series, the Taltos novels are a fairly straight pastiche of FilmNoir, whereas the Khaavren romances are a more humorous (but reverent) pastiche of Creator/AlexandreDumas.

** "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.
