is a very harsh parody of all the most stupid aspects of Buttlord GT . The laser-precise humour, however, marks the author as someone who obviously watches it religiously.
Dragon Ball Z performs affectionate parody of all sorts: from George the Dragon fine art, to movies, to saturday morning cartoons.
Kristofer Straub's was a lovingly critical exploration of webcomics. His current project, Checkerboard Nightmare , embraces and skewers sci-fi tropes in equal measure.
Starslip is an affectionate parody of console (specially 8-Bit Theater ) and table top RPG's (the fantasy genre in general) that also contains an epic story line.
Final Fantasy I , of both Darths & Droids and Star Wars Tabletop Games.
used screencaps from the movie to show it as a tabletop RPG — complete with players whining about the DM's railroading and loquaciousness.
DM of the Rings is parody of Monster of the Week X Files with Mulder and Scully pointing out stupider aspects, but The Rant shows author is really fan of the show.
affectionately parodies the third edition of Dungeons and Dragons, as well as many Fantasy tropes.
The Order of the Stick does this quite a bit. Sluggy Freelance and Star Trek in Alien "The Sci-Fi Adventure", and Voltron in Star Wars "GOFOTRON Champion of the Cosmos", and other World of Warcraft MMORPGs in "Years of Yarncraft", in Harry Potter the "Torg Potter" stories, at least to begin with.
is a very insightful parody of The Noob MMORPGs and the people that play them.
is a Super Megatopia cheesecake laiden parody of every superhero in existence. Highlights include Ferret Man (a combination expy of Batman and The Punisher — Oh, Crap!), Buxom Gal (an expy of Power Girl, right down to the costume, except Buxom Gal's powers are tied to her ever increasing bust size), Avatar (she's a god/dess! She doesn't know which one she is at any given time, but she has alien technology to help her prove her point).
In addition, "Crushed: The Doomed Kitty Adventures" parodies sword-and-sorcery fantasy games in general, but on-line RPG gaming in particular (such as the Temple of Infinite Lives and Crushed having to trek back to her body to retrieve her gear).
, is an affectionate parody of Concerned: The Half-Life and Death of Gordon Frohman , as the title suggests.
Half-Life 2 parodies many MS Paint Adventures RPG and Choose Your Own Adventure tropes.
does double duty, poking fun at the convoluted puzzles of the Problem Sleuth Adventure Game and the convoluted plotlines, combat abilities and sheer scale of Limit Breaks of Fantasy RPGs.
continues the trend with the notorious Homestuck Inventory Management Puzzles. Later in the story, it becomes difficult to tell the difference between video game parody and actual plot elements. Also, as the page quote indicates, it likes to parody the hell out of individual fictional works like .
Con Air is an affectionate parody of Radiant Dumb and its various game mechanics. Occasionally, it pokes fun at the story of Radiant Dawn and Path of Radiance.
Fire Emblem Doing these was the whole point of the original run of , prior to its Zortic Cosmic Retcon.

Persona 4 San Peng Guo's Three Kingdoms Comics is this trope of Dynasty Warriors.
is a parody of Teh Gladiators , but a gentle, loving one.
World of Warcraft Living with Insanity sometimes goes this route, such as the Talent Scouting arc where David attempts to kidnap Lar De Souza of Least I Could Do and Looking for Group. While making jokes about him and Ryan Sohmer, the arc is much more a loving tribute and Herbert has stated he has a lot of respect for the pair and their work. However, Paul does sort of ruin it by not even bothering to draw them to look anything like the real people.
An American Nerd In Animated Tokyo is an affectionate parody of most Eastern RPGs and many shonen anime, mixed in with some Western Animation jokes.
Girl Genius parodies pulp 1940s serials, old-school science fiction, and every mad scientist trope in the book (the main characters all suffer from a trait which causes both madness and scientific genius ... and by "suffer", we mean they enjoy every minute of it.)
Looking For Group started as a parody of World of Warcraft, but eventually turned into a parody of the High Fantasy/MMORPG genre as a whole.
reveled in this in introducing an Voodoo Walrus entire team of overly muscled, gun toting mercenaries ala the comic anti-heroes of the late 80's and early 90's. The overuse of pouches and loud colors might suggest poking fun at Rob Liefeld's creations.
The "Legends of Celida" storyline of is a parody of El Goonish Shive series and deconstructs how Zelda's Sheik form works.
The Legend of Zelda The cast of occasionally do this, discussing what could've happened in Star Wars; or Gilligan's Island; or various commercials redone with historical figures. They even re-enacted the opening to a TV show.
Times Like This WelcomeToHereafter does this an arc with the sunism church and Christian/Jewish dogma — Jesus even lampshades it. What makes even funnier is that all (real) religions get a comedy treatment.
is a Moonstuck pony-centered parody of .
Homestuck La Mouette Noire is a parody of sex and violence in Video Games, by tuning them Up to Eleven and playing it all for comedy.
Humon's not-so- Affectionate Parody of James Bond, Agent 300, became a popular enough Breakout Character to get his own Original Flavor fanfic spinoff, .
Secret Agent Men The Cockeyed Comix series Cliche City is this to
Sin City parodies video game news and history with Consolers Anthropomorphic Personifications of video game companies.
is about as affectionate of a parody as you're going to find of The Last Days Of Fox Hound .
