Fantastic Fan Art: K-ON! Parody Edition

What if the K-ON! girls were the Persona 4 girls? Or superheroes?... or ZOMBIES?

It's no secret that K-ON! is a massively popular franchise. In the crazy internet age we live in, this means one thing above all else... fan art. Badly drawn fan art, beautifully drawn fan art, and downright inappropriate fan art. In fact, there is so much K-ON! fan art out there, that it's spilling over into other franchises! Occasionally artists grow tired of drawing characters in their natural habitat and opt for entirely different scenarios and locales.

I've gathered a wide variety of such artistic endeavours, featuring K-ON! characters parodying all sorts of other characters. How many can you recognise?

Which do you like the best? Which universe would you put the K-ON! girls in?

The Mugi in the Blue Rose costume is a good one since it referencing the voice actor that plays both roles.

how the heck is the one with the people wearing the animal masks fan art of K-ON?

For context: the one showing different versions of Mio, shows what K-ON would possibly look like if it was make in the '90s, '80s, '70s and '60s.

They wore those masks when they were trying to recruit new members.

They're in my gallery for now, I'll add them to the correct character pages soon.

Far bigger fan of Persona 4 than K-On! but the best parody/AMV I've seen for it.

Cod BoPs made me laugh out load!

@Daroki: Oh snap, that explains where that image came from. That's awesome.

@CrazyCanuck: Yeah that's one of my favourites too, so great.

Mio looks great as a Strike Witch! XD

The Black Ops one could use some battle-wear.

Some cool fan art here, Newten. I'm not a K-ON fan so I have no idea who is who and stuff but there are some interesting parodies. Am I the only one noticing that Mio(?) is like half of the gallery? Do you have a thing for her Newten? I'm going to guess she has the biggest bust of the girls, which makes her more popular and more often used for art.

I love you Chie!

I did like the K-ON To The Future art, particularly because (in terms of subject matter*) it's most in keeping with the series.

Yep, hit the nail on the head.

This is why we can't have nice things.

Some good fanart here, some bad fanart here. I enjoy all the parodies I understand, though.

Waleson Sept. 20, 2011 at 2:20 p.m.

Really? A 'Slipknot' parody? I was not expecting that. I was expecting a 'Abbey Road' parody/reference since it is one of the more popular album covers of Rock and Roll.

Daniel_Newton moderator on Sept. 21, 2011 at 4:50 p.m.

@Wales: Huh, I could have sworn I'd included at least one. Ah well, here's some:
