A "[=MST=]" (or "[=MSTing=]") is a type of satire performed by adding humorous running commentary on top of another work. "Humor" here can range between tongue-in-cheek commentary to outright vitriol, depending on the original work's quality.

The term "[=MST=]" was derived from the show ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' (often called "[=MST3K=]"), which did this to SoBadItsGood [[BMovie B-movies]], but was coined and popularized by [[FanFic fan fiction writers]], who applied it to an [=MST3K=]-style treatment of other fanfics. [=MSTers=] often targeted SoBadItsGood fics, though sometimes they chose genuinely good stories either as a personal challenge or [[ItAmusedMe just to have a laugh]]. And while [=MSTs=] weren't limited to fanfics (one of the earliest known text-based [=MSTs=] is of a Website/{{Usenet}} group post), they did become--and still remain--the primary target.

In the conventional text-based [=MST=], a [=MSTer=] quotes large chunks of the source material, then inserts their own snarky comments:

->> [Text straight from the fanfiction]\\
'''[=MSTer=]:''' Snarky comment or pop-culture reference!

Early examples of [=MSTings=] would utilize [=MST3K's=] cast as the required snark brigade; dedicated writers would include host segments and the Mads. Once the general stylistic conventions of fic-based [=MSTs=] were established, [=MSTers=] branched out by changing the characters commenting on the fic at hand: Sometimes they used characters from a fic's source material, sometimes they used random characters unrelated to the fic, and sometimes they used wholly original characters(often the author's forum persona and other members) while staying within some form of the [=MST3K=] formula. (Some fandoms refer to this as "sporking".)

Fanfic [=MSTers=] have a fairly elaborate CodeOfHonor that they follow before doing a [=MST=], which boils down to the following rules:

* A [=MSTer=] must never make a [=MST=] just to spite another author--especially if you don't like them personally.
* A [=MSTer=] must first ask for [=MSTing=] permission from the original author. Fan fiction being subject to SturgeonsLaw like anything else, a lot of authors may consider their work an OldShame--or realize there is NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity. If they say yes, go ahead. If they say no, respect their decision. If they don't respond or can't be contacted, go ahead, but tread carefully.
* A [=MSTer=] must always credit the original author of the work being [=MSTied=].
* A [=MSTer=] must try their best not to let their humor hit below the belt. SturgeonsLaw applies to [=MSTers=] just as much as it applies to the authors they target.

[=MSTers=] who didn't follow this unwritten code were often blacklisted by their respective fan communities. When enough writers failed to follow the code, a number of fanfic sites banned [=MSTs=] entirely rather than deal with further rousing of the rabble. Such bans--combined with the major [=MSTers=] of the form's late-'90s heyday moving on to other pursuits--led to a dearth of fic-based [=MSTings=] after the early 2000s.

When it comes to sex and violence (notably in regards to {{Lemon}}s), [=MSTers=] don't have a hard "rule" about how to treat such content. Many [=MSTers=] avoid reprinting the more {{Squick}}-y content while keeping "tamer" content intact, while others leave everything in.

Outside of fan fiction, this trope is referred to as "riffing" (not to be confused with [[EpicRiff the musical term]]). Text riffs generally work in a similar fashion to fanfic [=MSTs=] or sporkings; audio or video riffs will have snarky commentary running over the original audio.

Compare AlternateDVDCommentary, TheAbridgedSeries and TheHeckler.

!!Examples of [=MSTs=] targeting fan-fiction (divided by medium of original work):

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZMh_nBSn-0 A Total Waste of 6 Min 35 Sec]] is a [[StylisticSuck deliberately awful]] AnimeMusicVideo that has pop-up dialogue making fun of itself.
* [[http://cardcaptor_schlueter.tripod.com/ Card Captor Science Theater 3000]], by [=CardCaptor=] Schlueter [[RunningGag (aka Syaoran-kun)]]. It mostly focuses on anime fanfics, with the riffers being [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Sakura, Syaoran, Tomoyo, and Kero]], and Eriol and his guardians replacing the Mads. Features many running gags, a semi-coherent story, and tons of living plushies. One tip: ''[[RunningGag stay away from the tea!]]''
* ''Fullmetal Alchemist'' has''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8974900/1/Truth-Revealed Truth Revealed]]'' where all the characters who help take down the homunculie get dumped in a room where alchemy doesn't work and told by a mysterious note that they are watching the future of how the country gets saved. This gets interesting due to where in the FMA timeline they got yanked from, and the fact that Scar is among the characters dropped in. It is highly implied to be Truth fault that this is happening, perhaps working with a future Hoenhiem, from the way Ed feacts to the second note.
* The sadly now-deleted ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8167375/1/The_Dramatic_Readings_of_Professor_Oak_ The Dramatic Readings of Professor Oak]]'' had a somewhat NonindicativeName, as it was actually the characters from the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime (and not just Professor Oak) riffing on various fanfics. Several of the fics mocked are technically well-written, but full of CanonDefilement or just character bashing.
* [[http://www.heavens-feel.com/elmer/ Elmer Studios]], which has original characters riffing on bad anime fanfiction. (Please note that the site is a mirror, since Geocites collapsed.) Recently [[http://elmerstudios.blogspot.com.au/ revived]].
* While not done in classic fanfic MST format, the unimaginatively-named ''[[http://www.sailormoonv.net/smv-review.txt Review of Sailor Moon V]]'' by Horosha (NSFW) holds to the spirit of the trope by portraying the [[Franchise/SailorMoon Sailor Senshi]] sitting around Hikawa Shrine one night reading copies of Troy "Silver" Stanton's fanfic series ''[[Fanfic/SailorMoonV Sailor Moon V: The Dark Adventures of the Sailor Scouts]]''. Unusually for this trope, the source material is actually really good, and the girls are rather impressed by Troy's work.
* On [[http://www.mindspring.com/~khabal/www/rst3k.htm The Satellite of Revolution]], the cast of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' gets snarky on horrible ''Utena'' fanfic. Also, Mikage as the mad professor is several kinds of great.
* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5118610/1/Yuugiou_Duel_Monsters_MCGT Yuugiou Mystery Card Game Theatre]]'' has original characters tearing into stories for all four series of the franchise.

* The many ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fanfics in which the Marauders (or any other combination of characters!) somehow get hold of one or more of the {{canon}} books and read through it, making snarky comments in a ScriptFic format.
** There's also a fic in which the Marauders get hold of My Immortal (found [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5914303/1/bMarauders_b_Read_bMy_b_bImmortal_b here]]).* [[http://the-department-of-mysteries.wikispaces.com/ The Department Of Mysteries]] is a newborn sporking community for Harry Potter badfics, started by Snowfox and the newbie Gamerex27, both Tropers on this very website.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The [=LiveJournal=] community [[http://community.livejournal.com/house_mst house_mst]] is dedicated to [=MSTing=] the very worst of ''Series/{{House}}'' fanfiction, using characters from House to comment on it rather than the original [=MST3K=] characters.


* [[http://www.nabiki.com/mst A MSTing For All Seasons]] is a website collecting the [=MSTing=] works of three separate authors, targeting everything from the infamous "Oscar" stories to a collection of UFO conspiracy theory postings. They may be some of the best examples out there.
** Specifically, prolific [=MSTer=] Megane 6.7, who's been riffing on fics for nearly a decade (including several [=MSTs=] done well after the zenith of the [=MiSTing=] community's output). Ever wonder who to thank[=/=]beat up for finding Oscar's fanfics? Go find Megane; he was the first person to riff "Artemis's Lover".
* The [=LiveJournal=] community [[http://community.livejournal.com/badfic_quotes badfic_quotes]] sporks multifandom fanfic and "professional" stories, with a particular love of poorly concieved summaries from The Pit (fanfiction.net), while [[http://community.livejournal.com/weepingcock weepingcock]] is the smutfic sporking equivalent, hunting down the worst descriptions of sex and body parts that will having you screaming for {{Brain Bleach}}. Particularly of note: the dark, dark world of Transformational Porn Fic.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7yIg3m2E8lDQxDn19dGt2g The Chongo Show]] has started a series called "What the Fanfic", a video MST with accompanied animated pictures to match what is being said. Most readings are blin and all comments are improvised.
* [[http://raetekusu.livejournal.com/ The Daily Insanity]], made by Raetekusu. As of now, he only has Chapters 1-11 of ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'' and a MST of an article comparing Stephenie Meyer to J.K. Rowling, but under planned [=MSTs=], he has ''Fanfic/MyInnerLife'', a Sue-fic from Kingdom Hearts, and a couple of more recent fics he's found.
* Blog/DasSporking has sporkings for ''sixty-four'' fandoms and counting, including both fanfiction and published works. It initially had a much smaller range of fandoms to be sporked when the only sporkers were Das Mervin and Mrs. Hyde (who of course could only spork for things they were familiar with or interested in), however the community eventually opened up to allow more sporkers, all of whom brought their own fandoms to the table.
* [[http://svamcentral.org/ewic/mstings.html Everything What Is Crap]], formerly "Shinji's Vault of Anime [=MSTings=]" or "SVAM", contains lots of [=MSTings=] of fics from anime, Western cartoons, and other forms of media. The site remains one of the largest [=MSTing=] repositories on the 'Net, but it went into archive mode in 2008 and no longer accepts new submissions.
* Fanfiction.net decided to ban fic [=MSTings=] at one point because they were "disrespectful" to authors. They have either changed their policy or stopped caring since then, as "FanFic/MST3kII" is still going strong.
* Website/{{Twitter}} account [[https://twitter.com/fanfiction_txt fanfiction_txt]] finds particularly bad lines from fanfiction of all media, and presents them without comment. Website/{{Tumblr}} account [[http://fanfictionimg.tumblr.com/ fanfictionimg]] then periodically takes some of the cream of ''that'' crop and creates little comics out of it, lampooning just how absurd the lines are if taken at face value.
* {{Tropers/supercomputer276}} brings you the [[http://supercomputer276.deviantart.com/gallery/34660801 Game Over MST]], starring his ''FanFic/GameOver'' series characters riffing ideas that could have turned out great if only they had a decent writer, ranging from ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' to ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}''.
* [[http://webspace.webring.com/people/cr/rivercityrandom/ It Came From English 101!]] does this with [[SelfDeprecation the MSTer's own English essays]], as well as fanfics.
* The Lardpirates' [[http://waggoner.lardpirates.com/d/section/12/heckles/ Heckles section]], which covers particularly bad webcomics (mostly Gonterman) to especially offensive fan fiction of ''Franchise/OnePiece'', ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' and ''VideoGame/PhantomBrave''. More are sure to come!
** Continued in the Aberration Arboretum section of spinoff site [[http://www.spoonshiro.com spoonshiro's stuff]], where they're currently tearing into the infamous Brazilian comic ComicBook/{{Novas Aventuras de Mega Man}}.
* The blog [[http://literarytravesty.wordpress.com/ Library of the Damned]] riffs on fanfics from a variety of fandoms, ranging from video games to children's TV shows.
* WebVideo/BennettTheSage on Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses does [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/bt/the-sage/fanfic-theatre Masterpiece Fanfic Theatre]] where he brings "the very best of the very worst of fanfiction" by reading horrible, usually NSFW, fanfic aloud, while every now and then white text pops up over the video as a snide comment in an MST fashion.
* [[http://www.keithpalmer.ca/msting-mine/ The MSTing Mine]] is an effort to archive every [=MST=] ever posted to the ''[=MST3K=]'' Usenet groups. This includes the earliest known [=MSTs=], posted to said Usenet groups in 1993.
* There is the relatively new [[http://thepdohf.blogspot.com/ Pocket Dimension of Horrible Fanfiction]], that covers such fics as ''Fanfic/MyInnerLife'', {{The Quest For The Holey Grail}}, and a couple of ''Kingdom Hearts'' fics in production or finished.
* The forum ''[[http://z4.invisionfree.com/Refia/index.php?act=idx Refia]]'' is dedicated to writing up new and fresh [=MSTings=] of both recent and classic fanfics, mostly of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' and ''Series/DoctorWho'' canon.
* FanFic/{{Retsuraed}} is described as "halfway between an MST and an AbridgedSeries". Besides the usual snarkyness, the people reading the fic often like to add additional "scenes" to it that poke fun at the blatant {{plot hole}}s and FridgeLogic in the fics.
* Fanfic/SoWhatColourIsYourToothbrush, handling everything from Manga/DetectiveConan and Literature/HarryPotter to ''Literature/WarriorCats'' and Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia.
* [[http://home.netcom.com/~mblackwl/ The Stephen Ratliff MSTing Archives]] include pretty much every Stephen Ratliff-based [=MSTing=] ever written. Also the [=MSTings=] of the infamous Peter Guerin ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' fanfics, such as ''Fanfic/TheMiserySenshiNeoZeroDoubleBlitzkriegDebacle''.
* Blog/ToplessRobot's ''Fan Fiction Friday Feature'' does this for fanfic. It moved to io9 with creator Rob Bricken, but similarly to the Fanfiction.net example did not last long due in part to the "disrespect" issue.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/WeHeartFanfics WeHeartFanfics]], an MST Youtube channel created by independent game developer Banov and some of his college friends.
* [[http://www.thoughtviper.com/gonterforce/gonterforce/gfindex.htm MSTings have also been done in webcomic form.]]
* The Polish blog [[http://niezatapialna-armada.blogspot.com/ Niezatapialna Armada Kolonasa Waazona]] focuses mostly on fanfiction (much of it for ''Literature/HarryPotter'') and on RealPersonFic (most of them about singers and boy-bands), though they've also reviewed published literature.
* [[http://www.nabiki.com/mst/megane67/mst/soh The Satellite of Hate]] is an interesting inversion of the usual MST: Joel is an evil villain who is imprisoned on the Satellite of Hate, and he is forced to read [[FanficRecs well written fanfiction]] in an attempt to rehabilitate him.

* The Livejournal pages [[http://community.livejournal.com/heartless_fics/profile heartless_fics]] and [[http://snakesonasora.livejournal.com/profile snakesonasora]] are dedicated to the [=MSTing=] of ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' fics. The latter is named after a fanfiction in which Sora is eaten and vomited up by a snake version of Riku, and most of other fanfics are of a similar quality.
* A Youtuber named [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEb-B5rwUcI Margay77]] is doing this to a ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' TrollFic, ''FanFic/SwimmingInTerror''. When Margay found out it was a troll, she continued, saying all of her criticisms were for "MarySue authors in general."

* [[http://mftn.livejournal.com/ Mystery Fiction Theater N]] has riffed ''Faithful Hearts'' by legendary Suethor [[http://www.encyclopediadramatica.com/Disneyfan01 DisneyFan01]].
* The Fanfic/{{Ponyriffs}} archive is a relatively new MST archive that collects various riffings of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfics, including ones from [[Fanfic/PastSinsMST Fan/fic/]] [[Fanfic/TheConversionBureauMST Theater 3000]] and the now-defunct ''Mystery Pinkie Pie Theater 3000''. Visitors can also submit riffs of their own to the archive for safekeeping.
** The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfic ''FanFic/PastSins'' is getting its original version [[FanFic/PastSinsMST riffed]] [[https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uJ8FqW1zBIzsYZoe4M1ILS9H8wgk2zjEEGQqmgNsfIg/edit?hl=en_US here]]. And just so everyone knows, the author ''himself'' granted permission to let the original version get riffed, ''and joined in''.
** Infamous fanfic ''FanFic/TheConversionBureau'' now has an MST which [[FanFic/TheConversionBureauMST has its own page]].
** [[FanFic/FanficTheater3015 The group who riffed these fics]] also has it's own page now.
* The [=MSTing=] of the ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' FanFic ''FanFic/UnderTheBridge'' is quite an unusual one. Not only is a very good and famous story [=MSTed=], but one of the two writers of the [=MSTing=] is also the author of the story itself.
* Back in the day there was a well-regarded series called Mystery [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Puff/Ruff]] Theater 3000 by [=BoomerReborn=] (the current writer of ''Webcomic/PowerpuffGirlsDoujinshi'') which featured the Rowdyruff Boys and Powerpuff girls as riffers, but it was lost to the FFN purge.
* Parodied in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pngFbzqVrTo this]] video, which has Discord and Chrysalis attempt to do a MST of the trailer to ''WebAnimation/{{Snowdrop}}'' but eventually resulted in the two arguing with each other.

!! Examples of [=MSTs=] and riffs targeting other media:

* The DVDCommentary track for the anime ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'' consists of the characters [=MSTing=] their own show, with dialogue written by the original author.
* The cast commentary for ''The End of Evangelion'' trying desperately to fight off the incredibly bleak film by mocking it.
--> "Hey wait, that last guy's still alive!
--> * blam*
--> "Oh, no, wait, yeah, [[KillEmAll that's all of them.]]"
* Kyon of the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' series provides an in-universe example when he spends most of ''[[ShowWithinAShow The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina: Episode 00]]'' making snarky comments.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}'s text boxes have shifted from mere thought boxes to this role in the later years.
* For [[http://www.misterkitty.org/extras/stupidcovers/index.html Mister Kitty Stupid Comics]] the format is:
-->> Panel from comic book
--> Snarky comment!
* The Bongo Comics ''[[Franchise/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' series had a B-story where Bart and his friends turn up for the latest in the ''Space Mutants'' franchise, only for the movie to put on an old Troy [=McClure=] film called ''Gladys the Groovy Mule''. Bart and friends even cast distinctive silhouettes in the first row while they snark.
* The Creator/MarvelComics UK reprint of the comic book adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' episode "The Big Broadcast of 2006!" had a Simon Furman framing device in which the Quintessons denied it ever happened.

* The ''Film/DungeonsAndDragonsWrathOfTheDragonGod'' DVD commentary is done by three actors portraying three iconic characters from D&D; Krusk, Lidda, and Jozan.
* The ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}'' DVD commentary even goes as far as adding silhouettes of the actors at the bottom of the screen.
* ''Film/{{Hellzapoppin}}'': The protagonists get a glimpse of the film they are about to star in themselves. They watch it and deliver sarcastic commentary. This is probably the earliest example of riffing on film.
* Creator/BrendanFraser does this throughout his commentary track on ''Film/{{The Mummy|1999}}'' DVD.
* Robert Benchley in ''Film/RoadToUtopia'' interrupts the film a few times for LampshadeHanging and sarcastic commentary.
* ''[[http://achievementhunter.roosterteeth.com/show/theater-mode Theatre Mode]]'', a Creator/RoosterTeeth production, is an ongoing series that directly follows the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' formula, in which members of Creator/AchievementHunter watch a bad film while superimposed in the bottom corner of the screen. Unlike ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', the riffs are completely improvised, the hosts can pause the movie if they want to hash out some strange aspect of the film, humorous graphics and chyrons are added in post-production, and there's plenty of adult content in the film and from the hosts.
* The intro and menus for ''Film/ThisIsSpinalTap'' DVD feature the original actors, in their Spinal Tap personas, commenting on the credits.

* ''Literature/DragonsLexiconTriumvirate'' has one on [[http://conjugalfelicity.com/dragons-lexicon-triumvirate/ ConjugalFelicity]], which can also be found on [[http://impishidea.com/tag/Dragons%3A-Lexicon-Triumvirate/ [=ImpishIdea=]]] along with another one [[OrphanedSeries that appears to have ended prematurely.]]
* OlderThanRadio: In Creator/CharlesDickens's ''Literature/GreatExpectations'', [[FirstPersonSmartass narrator Pip]] and several other crowd members riff on a particuarly bad performance of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''. "The ghost appeared to have died with a bad cough which he carried with him to the tomb."
* John Nowak and Matt Plotecher's [=MSTing=] of Literature/TomSwift's [[http://keithpalmer.ca/mst3k/favourites/tom-swifts-war-tank.txt War Tank]] tears into the original series' hallmarks of PatrioticFervor, [[EthnicScrappy Ethnic Scrappies]], [[CanonSue Canon Sues]] and the magnificent colossus of all-consuming stupidity that is [[TheDitz Ned]] [[TooDumbToLive Newton]]. It has its own tropes page, [[FanFic/TomSwiftAndHisWarTank here]].
* Creator/{{Kippurbird}} has done sporkings of every book in the ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'', as well as shorter ones of various other books.
* Creator/MarkTwain:
** ''Literature/FenimoreCoopersLiteraryOffences'' is some sort of [=proto-MST.=]
** In ''Roughing It,'' Twain gives ''Literature/TheBookOfMormon'' the same treatment after he is given a copy when he is travelling through Utah.
** He does a devastating critique of Christian Science which, along with taking apart its medical and religious principles, just plain mocks Mary Baker Eddy's writing in ''Science and Health, with Key to the Scriptures''.
* [[http://impishidea.com ImpishIdea]], contains several sporkings including one for ''Literature/{{Maradonia Saga}}''.
* The ''Literature/MaximumRide'' series has several; such as [[https://soulishexhortations.wordpress.com/tag/james-patcom/tag/james-patterson/ one on]] ''Soulish Exhortations'', [[http://impishidea.com/tag/Maximum-Ride/ one on]] ''[=ImpishIdea=]'' and [[http://das-sporking.livejournal.com/tag/series%3A%20maximum%20ride one on]] ''Blog/DasSporking''.
* Jeff Vandermeer's novel ''Shriek: An Afterword'' features the story's protagonist snarkily commenting on the narrator's work.
* The Polish SpeculativeFiction e-zine ''Fahrenheit'' has an occasional section named ''Zakużona Planeta'' (lit. "The Duzty Planet"), for sporking particularly bad submissions. It's a literature journal, so the comments focus mainly on explaining the flaws in writing, as opposed to simple mockery. They still tend to be hilarious, however.
* A proto-form of this kind of critique in Poland might be the writer Feliks Kres, who, in his magazine column "Galeria Złamanych Piór" ("Gallery of Broken Quills") once or twice published fragments of particularly bad reader-submitted stories, and commented on them this way. Kres quickly decided it was pointless, but many subsequent Polish sporkers cite him as an inspiration.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In ''Series/{{Community}}'' Abed and Troy apparently have a tradition of doing this to horrendous [[TheresNoBInMovie B-movies]]; Shirley, Pierce, and Señor Chang show up, too. (And yet Jeff, played by the one cast member who had guest starred on ''Podcast/RiffTrax'', does NOT show up.)
** Pierce attempts to compensate for his lack of ability at this by writing his jokes with a team of writers beforehand, like the actual ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' did after its first season.
* The DVDCommentary by the cast for ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' often features the cast riffing on the action or dialog. ''Especially'' Ben Browder and Creator/ClaudiaBlack. Their commentary together on the season one episode "Throne For A Loss" is particularly hilarious.
* [[Creator/{{GSN}} Game Show Network]]'s original series ''Faux Pause'' screened obscure, short-lived game shows, paused them at certain points, and riffed on them.
* [=FlirtyFroggy=] wrote [[http://archiveofourown.org/series/9322 a series of commentaries/reviews]] of ''Series/{{Hornblower}}''. Writing and characters are praised very often, but mocked mercilessly when it's deserved. As the author put it: "I mock because I care." It's very snarky, but also includes gushing about Archie Kennedy, because in the author's opinion, he's the cutest and coolest character on the show, and needless to say, this view is mirrored by many fans.
* [[http://www.glitterrock.org/gli.html The Glitterdome]] is an archive of [=MSTs=] for dozens of TV shows, done by taking screenshots and adding captions. It's mostly sci-fi and supernatural shows such as ''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]]'' and ''Series/DoctorWho.''
** [[http://www.hipsoda.com/caption/index.php Hipsoda's Caption Crack]] is another captioning site, where cappers (as they call themselves) can choose from an assortment of shows, movies, commercials, etc. and even "fave" captions.
* Some of the DVDCommentary tracks for ''Series/MadMen'' feature the actors riffing on the episodes. It happens pretty much any time Vincent Kartheiser (Pete Campbell) and/or John Slattery (Roger Sterling) are on the commentary, and there are a few episodes where they're together.
* ''Series/{{MASH}}'' did this a few times in its early years when home movies were being screened. Used to its funniest as Hawkeye, Trapper, Klinger, Radar and Henry were watching Frank's home movie of his wedding.
-->'''Hawkeye:''' (''as movie first shows line of wedding guests'') I've invited you all here today because I'm ready to name the murderer.
* In a case of MST being the regular narration, Creator/{{MTV}} Brazil used to broadcast ''Rockgol'', a [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball soccer]] tournament between musicians where the announcers were two comedians. Instead of doing a regular play-by-play, they frequently mocked the "athletes" ([[TheNicknamer including giving them nicknames]]) or [[{{Derailing}} took detours]] [[SeinfeldianConversation discussing weird topics]].

[[folder:Miscellaneous/Multiple Media]]
* The fivers over at Website/FiveMinuteDotNet have some elements of an [=MST=] combined with an Abridged Series. It's a bit complicated; read the examples at the works page.
* Comic SJ Perelman would often mock plays or entire novels. He even had a special prefix for the times he mocked a book he had read as a child; "Cloudland Revisited".
* In a speech before the Reichstag on April 28, 1939, UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler went point-by-point through a series of demands addressed to him by UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt. The German dictator paused after reading each item to give his snarky/sarcastic answer, prompting his rubber-stamp parliament to roar with laughter. That's right, [=MSTing=] is [[HitlerAteSugar something Hitler did]].

* The Distressed Watcher (formerly on Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, now known as WebVideo/TheAmazingAtheist) had a series called [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/dw/sn Sour Note]] where he and his friend riffed on pop music videos.
* Canadian music channel [[Creator/MuchMusic MuchMusic]] has ''Series/VideoOnTrial'', a series which does it to music videos with a bunch of comedians.
%%* The Music/{{Genesis}} ConceptAlbum '''Music/TheLambLiesDownOnBroadway'' got the MST treatment [[http://www.solsburyhill.org/pre2010files/Lambopener.html here]]. %% Link's dead, Jim
* [[http://www.reocities.com/Hollywood/hills/1393/ninmst3k.html This 1994 MST-ing]] of Music/NineInchNails' "Closer" music video had director Mark Romanek convinced it was a real episode.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Although short-lived, Lynxara's ''[[http://rotnluk.com/lynxaradex.html Mystery Wrestling Theater 3000]]'' was a fun series geared towards wrestling fans. Instead of using the Bots and the Mads, Lynxara used well-known Wrestling/{{WWE}} and Wrestling/{{WCW}} stars as the riffers with Wrestling/VinceMcMahon and Wrestling/DwayneJohnson serving as their captors. While it did riff wrestling-related fics, [=MWT3K=]'s two longest (and most memorable) entries have nothing to do with wrestling: the horrific "Coming of Munihausen" (a crossover between ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' and ''Overfiend''), and the even-worse(!) "A sorcerer, a demon, and Emeralds" (an incredibly dark ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' fanfic).

* Creator/WilliamShakespeare's play ''Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream'' ends with a bumbling theatre troupe that plans to perform a version of "Pyramus and Thisbe" for Duke Theseus, his new wife Hippolyta the Queen of the Amazons, and some guests. The play is an extreme example of SoBadItsGood; meanwhile, the royal couple and their guests mercilessly riff on it. (It should be mentioned that it wasn't taboo to talk during the play in Shakespeare's time; and also that "Pyramus and Thisbe" had been adapted for the stage several times, always poorly.)
** Given the precedence, authors [=MSTing=] Shakespeare fanfics often use Theseus and Hippolyta.
* In the CommediaDellArte, there was a character called the Capo or Capocomico, ostensibly a narrator, but in some shows he would join the action, complain to the audience, and sometimes even freeze the action and physically move the actors.
* Just a few years after the Shakespeare example, it was included in Francis Beaumont's ''Theatre/TheKnightOfTheBurningPestle'' in the form of a loud middle-class couple that's supposed to be part of the audience. They decide they have a better view of the show if they sit on stage, then get in an argument with the guy reading the prologue, and soon berate him into changing the play so it focuses on the middle class--which, remember, was a pretty new class at the time--and also into making up a new character and subplot so that their servant-boy can be in the show. They never do shut up, occasionally interrupting the action to complain.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* [[http://www.1up.com/do/minisite?cId=3172944 Broken Pixels]] was a series on 1UP.com where three guys would play bad video games for comedic value. Featured Creator/{{Seanbaby}}.
** Broken Pixels received a spiritual successor of sorts called Shame Night, a live Ustream show shown every Friday. Unfortunately, that's now gone as well, due to co-host Scott Sharkey being laid off [[UsefulNotes/ConspiracyTheories under mysterious circumstances.]]
* Any given LetsPlay might be this, depending on the player's opinion of the game and the overall tone of their [=LPs=]. LetsPlay/{{Pokecapn}} and his crew (whether it's all four guys together or just any combination thereof) tend to choose games that are ripe for this sort of treatment, so naturally it's going to happen.
** Two notable examples are WebVideo/BrainScratchCommentaries and LetsPlay/HellfireCommentaries. Hellfirecomms mostly only has two or three commentators (Except in the recent Sonic comms, which have [=NTom=], FTA, Skyler and [=SonicMovies=]) but Brainscratch can have anywhere between four to six due to having a main cast of four members.
** The [=LaFave=] Bros, who first gained prominence through their [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3_MhxfXgHC7f8yMeyGsQmXXlNlXL0tt5 skits parodying]] ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2lVY3o_QmM3fmZhheJo47qm3bLb1UpT6 do this]] for the ''Oblivion'' game itself.
* ''WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay'' from [[http://www.youtube.com/user/TheSw1tcher theswitcher]] features [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin two best friends playing games]] with their [[VitriolicBestBuds insult-exchanging commentary over it]].
** They also did a "Two Best Friends Watch" with their friend Woolie of ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'' through the in-game Theater mode.
* In a curious case, the otherwise forgettable ''VideoGame/OffWorldInterceptor'' had MST-style riffs over ''their own cutscenes''. Presumably, they realized that they were [[{{Narm}} deeply terrible]] and figured that was the only way to redeem them.
* The series of ''Playstation Underground'' demo disks from the 90s once got in the actual ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' cast to riff on some of the video features from other disks in the series.
* ''[[http://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=imopnqh4llwkvfne Mystery Science Theater 3000 Presents "Detective"]]'' is an adaptation of the old, SoBadItsGood text adventure ''Detective'', with added humorous riffing by the ''Mystery Science Theater'' crew who comment on all the oddities and flaws of the game.

%%* [[http://cry-some-more.demon-sushi.com/ "Faps"]] erases most of the text from bad YaoiGenre webcomics or mangas and replaces it with either completely random text or commentary from the characters. The text that isn't erased always has a riff (which these are referred to as) and there's always mention about the bad artwork. %% ...are we sure this is even kosher for linking? It sounds inordinately porn-related. Also, the link doesn't work.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', Dirk [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006340 MSTs a Pony Pals book]]. As the story goes on, he starts going OffTheRails, blacking out and rewriting entire chapters, keeping only the chapter titles. According to Jane, it becomes "a tough, emotionally draining read. But it's cathartic, in all the worst ways possible."
** This MST has since been [[{{Defictionalization}} defictionalized]] by sonnetstuck, and even has [[FanFic/PonyPalsDirkStriderEdition its own page]]. A lot of times, it goes deep into a philosophical discussion of the very essence of literature and writing, including the author's all-powerfulness in their work, originality and even etymologies of various writing- and retelling-related terms.
* Tough ''Webcomic/TheGutters'' usually is content with criticizing the comics industry by the way of {{parody}} and {{satire}}, in [[http://www.the-gutters.com/comic/482-jim-mcmunn/ this two]] [[http://www.the-gutters.com/comic/483-jim-mcmunn/ parter]] they emulate the [=MST3K=] style, taking a shot at a controversial real life speech, with the creators playing the parts of the [=MST3K=] crew.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* WebVideo/TheAnnotatedSeries does this to many SoBadItsGood videos, mostly targeting [[TheAnimeOfTheGame video game cartoons]].
* Blog/TheComicsCurmudgeon is basically this style of commentary with NewspaperComics as the target. Though usually in the form of an unaltered comic strip, followed by comments, sometimes it splits the comic into multiple parts for the sake of comedic timing, posts a side-by-side comparison to another strip (usually [[DidntWeUseThisJokeAlready when they feature the same joke]]), or the like.
* WebOriginal/FeedingTheTrolls does this with YouTube {{Troll}}s.
* WebVideo/NonBronyCommentary features the reactions of a cynical Jerkass to WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic.
* MachinimaCommentaries does this for {{machinima}}, although the [=MSTers=] are not assuming characters.
* ''WebVideo/TheAnnoyingOrange'' gang does this with movie trailers (and the ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'' trailer, though that was probably because it was requested so much).
* The Literature/WhateleyUniverse has a story "Tales of the MCO", in which the students are watching the aforesaid anti-mutant show and [=MSTing=] it the whole time.
** The Kimbettes [=MSTed=] the first assembly of the Fall '06 term.
---> ''What do we do with witches?''\\
''We'' burn ''them! Sorry Nikki!''
* An old document named [[http://www.johnromero.com/lee_killough/humor/doominsa.shtml Doom Insanity]], a collection of humorous e-mails and Usenet posts about ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'', contains also a [=MSTing=] of a (perhaps fictional) Usenet posting which claims that ''Doom'' [[EverybodyIsSatanInHell is an evil game which opens you to demonic influence]]. The characters here are the ''Doom'' marine and two monsters from the game.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "New Kidney in Town" has Peter, Quagmire, and Joe watching ''Series/CharlesInCharge'' on a TV at the Drunken Clam and riffing over the show's intro in this manner.
-->'''Quagmire:''' I heard the show's sweater budget was like $200,000.
* The 1988 WesternAnimation/MightyMouse episode "Mighty's Tone Poem" had the hero making four of his arch-foes watch his home movies of clips from first season episodes. As the film rolls, they make commentary on it:
-->'''Oil Can Harry:''' I'd walk out of this movie on an airplane!\\
'''Petey Pate:''' I've seen detergents that left a better film than this!\\
'''The Cow:''' If this were any more of a dog, it'd have fleas!
** The episode "Scrappy's Playhouse" has Scrappy going to a theater showing old Terrytoons and doing commentary. He's eventually thrown out talking too much.
* [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/MSTF MSTF]] is an annual event at Botcon, a big ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' convention, which involves giving the [=MST3K=] treatment to ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'', and in later years various other episodes of ''Transformers''.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtIleohgKTfpbt3D6GjWqqpVYhJkeXbs Mystery Brony Theater 4000]] is four bronies riffing on ''MyLittlePony'' G1 and G3.
** In a similar vein, [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL99C29CC6F1CFC2ED Mystery Pony Theater 20000]] is two bronies riffing on ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episodes.
* When WesternAnimation/{{the Powerpuff Girls}} were reluctantly forced by the Professor to watch an old silent film in an old revival theater, they began to spout wisecracks and make fun of of the movie. They even sit in the same position at the same silhouette angle of ''[=MST3K=]''.
* The episode "Remembrences" of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' has members of the cast riffing on particularly disliked moments in their own show in a ClipShow format. The third act in particular goes off the rails and becomes an AbridgedSeries that's one CrowningMomentOfFunny after another.
