* The Black Dog Game Factory in ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'', a branch of [[{{Megacorp}} Pentex]], and the home of the ''Talespinner'' system (''Storyteller'') and ''World of Shadows'' setting (''[[TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness The World of Darkness]]''). Not only are all their games parodies of WhiteWolf products (''[[TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade Revenant: The Ravishing]]''; ''[[TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse Lycanthrope: The Rapture]]''; ''[[TabletopGame/MageTheAscension Warlock: The Pretention]]''; ''[[TabletopGame/{{Aberrant}} Deviant]]'' etc. etc.), but the names and some characteristics of the staff were strangely familiar, albeit all evil and/or insane.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' has joke sets Unglued and Unhinged. While a lot of the cards are just silly in general, many cards take potshots at both Magic's fans and its developers. For example, one card called "Look at Me, I'm the DCI" depicts a blindfolded Wizards employee making banning decisions with a dartboard.

* WeirdAl is known for food-themed parodies of popular songs, though this was more a staple of his early career. His album, Mandatory Fun, seemed to have another such song in "Foil" when describing how well it worked for containing foods. [[WhamLine At first.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' celebrates and mocks everything about the Sonic franchise in equal amounts, along with the periodic potshot at Sonic's UnpleasableFanbase. Shadow the Hedgehog embodies this, with his Boom version being as much of an edgelord as fans and nonfans alike have accused him of being.

* An accidental example of this is "Right Brain", a song from the 1994 New York Theatre Workshop version of Jonathan Larson's ''{{Rent}}''. Later becoming "One Song Glory", many fans who hear this old version of the inspirational song can hardly listen without feeling the need to vomit or burst into a fit of uncontrollable laughter.

* ''WesternAnimation/PibAndPog'' is a self-parody by Creator/AardmanAnimations, in which a pre-school kids' show featuring two cute claymation creatures rapidly descends into grotesque tit-for-tat acts of ultraviolence.

* Moose Toys managed to get on the map with ''Toys/TheTrashPack'', a gross-out collectible toy that grew very popular. Their next big venture was ''Toys/{{Shopkins}}'', which became even ''more'' popular, even surpassing ''Trash Pack''. When ''Shopkins'' was still hot and ''Trash Pack'' was gone, they created ''Toys/TheGrosseryGang''...basically a sickening ''Trash Pack''-style mockery of their own ''Shopkins'' line.
