Hayate no Gotoku is a foremost authority on parodies among manga, with them being laced throughout the entire series. Some are obvious, while most are hidden and hard to notice without the help of Translator Notes, and some even escape the notice of the skilled translators. Here is an extensive list to many, but most likely not all, of the parodies contained in Hayate no Gotoku.(Ignore the last sentence for now, as it will take some time to put them all up.
