* ChessWithDeath: One of Morty's earliest films is an army training film about VD, done in the style of ''TheSeventhSeal''. This very event happens in the movie.

''The Independent'' parodies real-life directors of mostly gimmicky and schlocky films, like Creator/RogerCorman and William Castle, and a variety of different ExploitationFilm genres, and a very specific parody of both ''Billy Jack'' and ''Film/HeavensGate''.

* RecycledScript: Morty would often remake the same movie several times in a row, as seen in a montage of ''the exact same scene'' - same actors,same lines, even the same music score - with only minor changes to the set and costumes.

* NumberedSequels: Morty makes a movie awkwardly titled ''World War III II''. He also claims to have invented the Roman numerals sequel thing, and that the producers of ''TheGodfatherPartIII'' and ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIITheNewBlood Friday the 13th Part VII]]'' stole this idea from him.

* ShooTheDog: Parodied in a scene from Morty's movie ''Whale of a Cop''. The in-universe story goes that the movie was scripted as a ''Free Willy'' rip-off, but the producers wanted the whale to be changed to a cop, so we see a scene from the movie where a kid has to let the title character (played by Creator/BenStiller) go "to be with the other cops". The cop is acting like a whale for much of the scene, then stands up and begins exhibiting human behavior...up until the point where he spits water like ''{{Flipper}}''.

Creator/JaneaneGarofalo appears as Morty's long-suffering manager/daughter. Jerry's real-life son, Creator/BenStiller, briefly appears in a fake clip from one of Morty's movies. Real life independent filmmakers like Ted Demme, Peter Bogdanovich, [[BlackCaesar Fred Williamson]], Nick Cassavetes and even Creator/RogerCorman (a subject of parody in the film's main character) appear as themselves. B-movie actress Julie Strain, and comedians Andy Dick and Creator/BrianPosehn also have appearances in the film.
