They say imitation is the highest form of flattery, but sometimes it's nothing but a slap in the face.
~ Wizard & Boomstick introducing the DEATH BATTLE! between Deadpool and Deathstroke.
  • Parodies: Villains who are parodies of other Villains, Heroes and/or real-life figures. Parodies are done for comedy purposes and as such are not meant to be taken seriously. Considering their comedic purposes they can never be Pure Evil as they are for comedy and not seriousness. Deadpool, Fairy Godmother and Rick Sanchez are good examples.
  • Homages: Villains that pay homage to other Villains, Heroes and/or real-world figures. Unlike Parodies they are done respectfully or intensified. Homage villains are usually taken seriously, sometimes even more than the originals. These characters are NOT used for humor. In some cases they can be Pure Evil if heinous enough. The Operator, Sonic.EXE and Black Hiver are good examples.

It is important to note that in order to qualify a character must be directly and clearly parodying or paying homage to another character or character type (Dark Helmet and Darth Vader; Deadpool and Deathstroke; The Operator and Slender Man, etc). A character that simply shares similarities to another character is NOT a parody or an homage.

It's also important to know that just because Villain has a scene parodying or paying homage to another work that does NOT mean the characters themselves are Parodies and/or Homages (i.e. Nostalgia Critic and Eric Cartman parody or pay homage to scenes from other media but are entirely original).
