Affectionate Parody / New Media

  • In contrast to how Encyclopedia Dramatica is largely nothing more than a series of critical Take Thats, Uncyclopedia tends to veer in the direction of Affectionate Parody in its articles.
  • Pokebattles is a major affectional parody site. It parodies Pokémon, with a battle system identical to Pokémon Red. They always say "used" before attacks and multiple actions. They parody multiple other things including Star Wars; Luke is a character. Doompuff, the evil rabid Jigglypuff of doom, is The Juggernaut. A link to Red Version is [1].
  • The LOLCat Bible Translation Project. It's exactly what it sounds like. Some parts are more affectionate than others, depending on the "translator", but it's generally good-spirited, often hilarious, and occasionally surprisingly well-thought-out (see the lolcat "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God").
  • The Meathead Perspective consists primarily of affectionate parody of the band Nine Inch Nails and frontman Trent Reznor (especially the flash animations).
  • While Mystery Science Theater 3000 doesn't qualify, RiffTrax does in some cases. Notably their parody of The Lord of the Rings, which contains numerous references to J. R. R. Tolkien's writings.
    • Some if these you actually have to be fairly familiar with the writings yourself to even get. For example, in the intro Isildur's death is blamed on the ring's treachery, which causes Mike to remark that being a bloodthirsty tyrant may have had something to do with it.
  • Ray Larabie made affectionate parody fonts.
