Theory of a Death Knight (be advised, the NSFW warning is for real) is a Machinima rock band set in the World of Warcraft universe. Imagine Spinal Tap meets Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain with a little Lady Gaga thrown in for flavor. They swear so much, they make the South Park kids look like altar boys. The series was written, directed, and edited by D.W. Hackleman, with voice and sound done by his brother Clint. The Hackleman brothers (and others) work under the name of Myndflame Productions, and are best known for their World of Warcraft machinima Zinwrath the Movie and the Illegal Danish series.
- Affectionate Parody: Up to Eleven. Their very name is a take-off of the rock band Theory of a Deadman, and the music style (and characters) are reminiscent of Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain.

- Ninja Pirate Robot Zombie: TREXBO (always written in all caps), the twin Vulcan-wielding Tyrannosaurus rex.
- Up to Eleven: To Memetic proportions.
