* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cakewalk Cakewalk]] dances performed in MinstrelShows by white dancers in {{blackface}} are a parody of a particular style of dance held by black former slaves on plantations. However, the type of dance they're parodying is itself a parody of dances performed by white plantation owners.

** ''Series/TheOfficeUK'' both parodies and invokes this trope; David Brent, the manager, fancies himself a genius comedian, but the very fact that his 'act' is basically limited to riffing on these kind of characters is a pretty big clue that ultimately he's got nothing.

** Similarly with numerous parodies of The Lonely Island's track "I'm On a Boat", ignoring the fact that the original song was itself a parody of materialistic hip-hop themed around ostentatious displays of wealth and luxury.

* A particular problem with British comedy shows in TheEighties was impressionists "doing" people like "Dame Edna Everage", "[[SomeMothersDoAveEm Frank Spencer]]" and "[[Franchise/ThePinkPanther Inspector Clouseau]]", completely ignoring the fact that these were already comedy caricatures created by Barry Humphries, Michael Crawford and Creator/PeterSellers respectively, leaving absolutely nothing left to parody.

* Andrea Martin of ''Series/{{SCTV}}'' once remarked that the only show they couldn't spoof was ''LaverneAndShirley'', because they couldn't come up with any situation that was more ridiculous than what the show already did.

* Music/RayStevens' song "Teenage Mutant Kung Fu Chickens" spoofed ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', which was itself a parody of FrankMiller's ''Ronin'' among others. There was also a whole genre of ''Ninja Turtles'' [[TeenageMutantSamuraiWombats parody knockoffs]] of which Stevens appears unaware when he made his own parody knockoff.

* The similar horror spoof ''Film/ShriekIfYouKnowWhatIDidLastFridayTheThirteenth'' received some of the same criticism. Sometimes mistakenly referred to as a parody of ''Scary Movie'' in turn ([[UpToEleven a parody of a parody of a satire?]]), it's actually an original spoof of ''Scream'' and similar movies which [[DuelingMovies just happened to have been created around the same time]].

* ''Film/TheSlumberPartyMassacre'' was written as a satirical jab at the slasher genre for its victimization of women and excessive nudity. Its ''directors'' took it seriously, filming it as a straight example of the genre. As a result it was known for having more gore and nudity than any other slasher up to that point. The sequels corrected this, but it became more of a general parody of slashers, than a parody of any particular element.
