* ''Manga/SgtFrog''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvks5APtYSs Umm...]] WildMassGuessing? JhonenVasquez was SeparatedAtBirth from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mine_Yoshizaki Mine Yoshizaki]]. MagicPlasticSurgery was involved. As were {{Human Popsicle}}s. Along with ridiculous amounts of whatever the Japanese put in their candy. Turn of the millennium, they both decided to make weird series about {{Ineffectual Sympathetic|Villain}} {{Alien Inva|sion}}ders. EagleLand, being so lame they're lame, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork killed]] WesternAnimation/InvaderZim after two seasons, despite its fanbase. Japan, which prides itself on being geek Mecca, has made ''seven'' seasons of this madness, along with '''twenty''' volumes of manga - there are entire shelves of Keroro swag, '''''[[RealityIsUnrealistic just like in the opening sequence of the first series!]]'''''

** ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdman'', a show with the eponymous superhero-turned-lawyer as its protagonist. Many of his cases are based around jokes referencing old, sometimes obscure American cartoons.

* ''Ippatsu Kiki Musume'' - Literally meaning "Sudden Danger Girl", sometimes translated as "Miss Critical Moment". A short-format anime series where an AnimeChineseGirl wakes up to find herself facing imminent death (such as [[SaunaOfDeath being locked in a sauna]] or [[SwallowedWhole halfway down a python's gullet]]), tries to save herself (which fails either due to her employing InsaneTrollLogic or because [[CosmicPlaything the universe hates her]]), and is ultimately rescued by complete coincidence.

** ''Film/TheLure'' is a Whippet ('''W'''eird '''P'''olish '''T'''hing) about two mermaids winding up in [=1980s=] Warsaw, Poland and joining a band that plays at a dance club. One falls in love with a musician, and the other one's a cannibal. It took Sundance Festival by storm... and the Polish critics are confused why. CompletelyDifferentTitle must have helped, though.

** The films of writer Charlie Kaufman, who started with ''Film/BeingJohnMalkovich'' (the [[Creator/JohnMalkovich actor in the title]] reacted to receiving said script with IsThisAJoke) and didn't dial down anywhere down the line. That movie's director, Spike Jonze, indulged in WHAT before with his music videos (putting the Music/BeastieBoys in a cop show and Music/{{Weezer}} on ''Series/HappyDays'', making Creator/ChristopherWalken dance madly - and eventually ''fly'' - to Music/FatboySlim), and his movies took one step further - after ''Malkovich'', there was ''Film/Adaptation'' (another Kaufman script), ''Film/WhereTheWildThingsAre'', and ''Film/{{Her}}''.

* ''[[Anime/KinnikumanNisei Ultimate Muscle: The Kinnikuman Legacy]]''. It's a parody of ProfessionalWrestling, except the wrestlers actually have superpowers. Same goes for its predecessor, ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}''.

* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'': [[CthulhuMythos Nyarlathotep the Crawling Chaos]] takes the form of a [[GenkiGirl hyperactive]] {{Otaku}} teen girl and comes to Earth ostensibly because of her job as a SpaceCop, partly because [[{{Otaku}} she]] wanted easy access to {{Anime}} and {{Toku}} goods, but primarily because she fell in LoveAtFirstSight with OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent and Creator/HPLovecraft fan [[OnlySaneMan Mahiro Yasaka]] and wants to be his ManicPixieDreamGirl wife ([[LovableSexManiac with lots of sex involved]]). [[{{Tsundere}} He]] responds with {{Slapstick}} and {{fork|Fencing}}s. They're later joined by Nyarko's old classmates Cthuguha the Living Flame (who has an equally obsessive lesbian crush on Nyarko) and Hastur the Unspeakable One (who's a CuteShotaroBoy with a crush on Mahiro), all culminating in a parody [[HaremGenre harem]]-slash-[[LoveDodecahedron Love-Dodecahedron]] with '''[[ReferenceOverdosed LOTS]]''' of pop culture references. And that's just the base premise; we haven't even touched on the plot yet...

* ''Ultimate Girls'' combines {{Magical Girl}}s and [[HumongousMecha Giant Mecha]], throws in a robotic, talking [[FreudWasRight phallic symbol]] for a mascot, and every episode is chock full of [[DoubleEntendre innuendo]].
