** There's a three episode long one of ''Franchise/ThePurge'', each episode addressing a part of the plot:
*** The first one has the character questioning about legal details of the purge, such as: if they get an illegal pet during they Purge, can they keep it after the Purge? If they have an illegal marriage (say, a polyamorous one), do they get to stay married after the purge ends? If someone they kill only die after the purge ended, can they be prosecuted? etc.
*** The second one parodies the CharacterArchetype of [[Film/ThePurgeAnarchy Leo]]. While he is a badass, he also shows signs of being somewhat of a AttentionWhore desperately trying to show off as a hero by making senselessly acts that seem brave.
*** In the last one, someone tries to kill their friend, but doesn't manage to do it before the Purge ends. The two have then an awkward confrontation, [[RealityEnsues related to how awkward the day after the Purge has to be when people are confronted with what they did to others]].
--->''That's so awkward. Confronting someone about their purge actions is like asking someone why they unfriended you on Facebook.''

** Of the [[WackyFratboyHijinx frat boy comedies]] Rogen starred in. Namely, it shows how reasonable people would act surrounded by characters from these movies, and how the frat guys are pathetic, petty [[ManChild Man-Children]] who are unwilling to accept maturity.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7Hoz2ZHYZM This fake ad]] by Creator/RocketJump parodies '90s commercials for kids' food and drink (specifically, a Capri Sun ad featuring morphing effects reminiscent of ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'') by showing just what would happen if three kids, after drinking [[WritingAroundTrademarks Not Capri Sun]], turned into metallic liquid. The answer: BodyHorror.

** https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CS7xDS24GGE This]]video deconstructs elements of the ''Film/HarryPotter'' series by moving the eponymous WizardingSchool to...[[CrapsackWorld the inner city.]] The teachers couldn't care less, the school's resources are thin, crime is implied to be ''very'' rampant, and series BigBad Voldemort seems to be some combination of a street gang ringleader and a FantasticDrug dealer.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{ParaNorman}}'' makes fun of pretty much every zombie cliche and horror movie trope in general, until the last third of the movie...

*** If "specifically mentioned several times" = "beaten like a dead horse", then yeah, that's fairly accurate. We find out fairly early on that the character Deety is actually going by her initials. Let's just say her parents ''really'' liked the Barsoom novels, and if you're familiar with them, you can probably guess what DT stands for. Oh, and her maiden name is "Burroughs". Guess what her husband Zeb Carter's middle name is. Go on, guess.

** Specific example: the series deconstructs Pascal's wager (the notion that it is existentially safer to believe in God than not to) by having Ventre, an Expy of Pascal, die and arrive in an afterlife populated by stick-wielding enemies of the deity he worships. Oops.
*** From Hogfather: When he died he woke up in a circle of gods holding nasty-looking sticks and one of them said, "We're going to show you what we think of Mr Clever Dick in these parts..."
** Also, Discworld/SmallGods is one of these for extremist religions, Discworld/NightWatch is one for Literature/LesMiserables, and the many of the Witches (and Tiffany Aching novels) are this for fairy tales in general.

* The ''SirAproposOfNothing'' books are like this of fantasy, part of the time. The other parts are a more of a straight deconstruction.
