* ''Webcomic/{{Hiimdaisy}}'' makes a joke at one point in the ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' comics about six-year-old Nanako spending all her time singing the Junes ad jingle to [[ParentalAbandonment make herself feel less alone]], which the protagonist finds disturbing. This would be funnier if that wasn't already something from the game - Nanako's loneliness, to the point the Junes commercials are the bright spot in her day, is a big point of her character.

* ''Webcomic/{{Hiimdaisy}}'' makes a joke at one point in the ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' comics about Nanako spending all her time singing the Junes ad jingle and Yu finding it disturbing. This would be funny if it wasn't an almost exact quote from the game. (Nanako's loneliness, to the point the Junes commercials are the bright spot in her day, is a major plot point.)

** In his review of ''WesternAnimation/EightCrazyNights'' during the Bum Biddy song, he complains about Davey singing, "But he never gave up on me", when Whitey did give up on him. Davey then says, "Till I told him he was useless and his sister was freaky".

* ''WebVideo/{{Smosh}}'' did a parody of ''Anime/DeathNote''. The joke is that the guy with the Death Note gets DrunkWithPower, develops a god complex, and becomes a KnightTemplar murdering anyone he doesn't like... which is the whole point of ''Anime/DeathNote''.

** Before them both ''Film/ScaryMovie'' was a parody of primarily ''Film/{{Scream|1996}}'', a movie which was already a satire of the Slasher Genre.

** He's also made a couple jokes about Literature/HarryPotter, imagining a version where Harry has some serious issues due to everyone acting like he's TheChosenOne. While the issue is skated over in the movies, its a huge theme of the original books.

* ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'' had a strip about Gabe's past obsession with KrisKross, an early '90s rap duo who wore their clothes backwards. The punchline is that it's hard for a guy to go to the bathroom with his jeans on backwards. Kris Kross' first album actually made that same joke in one of the spoken word tracks between songs.

* The reason why the creepypasta ''I HATE YOU'' ended up being so divisive is a combination of this and PoesLaw. The author, popular and acclaimed creepypasta writer Creator/{{Slimebeast}} intended it to be a parody of video game creepypasta, which are infamous for almost always using the same set of cliches, but did so in a way that essentially just used those cliches in a somewhat more ridiculous manner. Because it didn't really stand out as a parody, almost everybody that didn't see the original posting, where its author outright called it a joke, took it at face value. Its detractors took it as a serious, bad story, while Slimebeast's fans defended it as being good, with all of them on both sides missing the joke entirely.

* ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' has been subjected to its fair share of parodies since its heyday in the 1980s--as befitting one of the most popular multimedia franchises of the 20th century. Of course, as any fan will tell you, the cartoon was pretty damn tongue-in-cheek to begin with, essentially being a buddy comedy with action and sci-fi thrown in. Even when the Turtles debuted in a somewhat DarkerAndEdgier [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesMirage comic book]], the book was just as much an AffectionateParody of superhero comics as a superhero comic in its own right. The central premise (temperamental young mutants fight crime in New York City) was something of a take-off on ''ComicBook/XMen'', while their origin story (a runaway truck full of radioactive waste gives birth to superheroes with martial arts training) was a clear parody of ''ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}''. Even the Turtles' wise mentor "Splinter" was a parody of Daredevil's mentor "Stick", while their enemies "The Foot Clan" were based on Daredevil's "The Hand".

* Many different [[BlackComedy bloody and grotesque]] [[SongParody parodies]] of the popular children's song "On Top of Spaghetti" have circulated among children at least since the 1970s, most them beginning with some variation of the line, ''"On top of Old Smoky all covered with blood, I shot my poor teacher with a .44 slug..."'' (parodying ''"On top of spaghetti all covered with cheese, I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed..."''). As noted by [[http://playgroundjungle.com/2009/12/on-top-of-old-smokey-parodies.html Playground Jungle]], many of those children don't seem to be aware that "On Top of Spaghetti" is itself a parody of the American folk song "On Top of Old Smoky", which begins with the line ''"On top of Old Smoky all covered with snow, I lost my true lover for courting too slow..."''. This seems to be largely dependent on age: "On Top of Old Smoky" was once a legitimately popular song that played frequently on American radio stations, but many younger children now [[TheWeirdAlEffect seem to know the parodies much better]] (likely because they grew up with them).
