* The tribute concert to Cameron Mackintosh, "Hey Mr Producer", features a pre-taped segment in which StephenSondheim and Creator/AndrewLloydWebber parody their songs "Send in the Clowns" and "Music of the Night", while ribbing Cameron Mackintosh at the same time. It can be called the highlight of the show.

* ''Series/UltramanTaro'' for the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'', embodying [[SelfDeprecation every negative stereotype associated with]] ''Ultraman'' and Tokusatsu. It's got ridiculous plots (episodes have included such plot points as the characters playing volleyball against a giant monster), some of the goofiest-looking {{kaiju}} ever (like the buck-toothed Okariyan and the Pinnochio-like alien Piccolo), slapstick-like battles (in more than one fight, the monster attacks Taro by ''farting in his face''), defense team ZAT being outright lazy and incompetent (in several episodes, they ''refuse'' to deal with the MonsterOfTheWeek and complain that Ultraman Taro should just solve the problem for them), and a propensity for extreme MoodWhiplash (episodes could have characters acting like idiots in one scene, only for the next seen to depict brutal monster-on-Ultra violence or humans being massacred in kaiju rampages). This show was made as Creator/TsuburayaProductions' [[MilestoneCelebration 10th anniversary series.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'' light-heartedly pokes fun at a lot of the series' standards; for example, early in the game Zelda refuses to accompany you into a dungeon on the grounds that leaving the dangerous work to the heroes is "family tradition." And yet later on she takes on a much more active role than in every other game of the series to date.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', Matt Groening's head presents a pilot for his (presumably) animated series to an audience at Comic-Con, called Futurella. Set in the year 4000, the opening title looks exactly like Futurama's, and abruptly follows with a message that the show's been cancelled.
-->'''Matt Groening's head:''' Wow. Fox has really streamlined the process.

* The [[UndefeatableLittleVillage large number of]] [[EasilyThwartedAlienInvasion alien invasions fended off]] in Marvel comics got parodied as early as 1977 in ''Comicbook/XMen'': Shi'ar come to Earth and discuss whether the [[AlienNonInterferenceClause Prime Directive]] applies. When they realize that the locals have not only met the Skrulls, the Kree and the likes before but actually beat Comicbook/{{Galactus}} back four times, they panic, fearing that this one world may be as powerful as their own whole empire.

* ''Castle Greyhawk'' was a mega-dungeon adventure set in the ''TabletopGames/{{Greyhawk}}'' setting [[CaptainObvious (of course)]] written by Creator/GaryGygax himself, and was presumably something he had written up to playtest ''Dungeons & Dragons'' as a concept. The plot [[ExcusePlot (to use the term loosely)]] involved players going through the eponymous castle through comedic encounters that made no sense at all when viewed as a whole. Villains in the adventure were {{Shout Out}}s to a rather wide array of television, comic book, and advertising icons (players would encounter Driderman, The Inedible Bulk, and Da Ting in one room, and face Poppinfarsh the Dough Golem in the next) with weird places like The Temple of Really Bad Dead Things and the Honeycomb Hive). The FinalBoss was a nutty illusionist who spent all his time at the bottom level of the tower watching a giant tapestry which is basically a TV. (This was caricature of Gygax himself.) While some fans saw the adventure as SoBadItsGood, many accused TSR of doing it to purposely ruin Gygax's reputation (it was released after he left the company) while others just claim they thought ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime.
