One of the best parody games ever, Chess Maniac 5 Billion and One, endorsed by the National Lampoon), took the classic Battle Chess idea of animated chess pieces one step further with parodies of pop culture, from the sardonic HAL commentator (from 2001), to Star Wars and beyond. Unfortunately the AI doesn't live up to the game's funny bells and whistles, so those looking for a competent opponent should look elsewhere :)
