* ''Anime/ReCreators'' was never meant to be a comedy, but the show's staff clearly ironically portray the interaction of fictional characters with the real world, especially when it comes to genre psychology like the exposition of [=JRPG=]'s [=NPC=] Meteora or idealism of the light novel's heroine Celestia

* Erwin Schrödinger's famous UsefulNotes/SchrodingersCat was actually intended to mock the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum physics (it originally began with the line "One can even set up quite ridiculous cases"). It has instead had [[MisaimedFandom somewhat the opposite effect]].

** This kind of potshot at Post-Modernist Feminist "Research" was repeated in 2017 with a paper labeled ''"The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct"'' ([[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Yes really]]), which is equally as incomprehensible and even includes several generated papers as citations, among other things. A lengthy video analysis of this hoax paper has been created and is available [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0MLyFHTSu4 here.]]

** Several times sending impostors to take his place in interviews...and once even [[http://www.joeyskaggs.com/html/truth.html fooling]] ''ToTellTheTruth'' (and not just the panelists, but the entire production staff as well);

* ''[[http://youtube.com/watch?v=V6WP5GQ6iFo The Legend of Zelda: The Light of Courage]]'' is ostensibly an animation test from a new computer-animated Zelda cartoon from DIC. It's a parody, but given how bad some of DIC's cartoons have been, ''many'' mistook it for the real thing... It's actually a stealth parody of IGN forum user Joe_Cracker's futile attempts to get his awful Zelda movie script made into an animated movie. [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/people/joecracker.html Just read about his saga here.]]

Joe_Cracker himself was fooled at first, even voicing Majora's Mask in the first episode, but the parody became less stealthy once he backed out.

* One of the many theories about the origin of ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'', possibly the most infamous fanwork ever. Is it a brainless, overwrought angstfest starring a blatant MarySue AuthorAvatar or the self-aware work of somebody knowledgeable about early fan culture, lampooning the worst of the genre with a deft hand? You decide.

* [[http://www.p4rgaming.com/ Play 4 Real Gaming]] is a gaming website parody/satire in the same sense as Website/TheOnion, complete with ludicrous stories about the video game industry that you'd think people would realize were false (like 'most gamers can't beat first level of VideoGame/{{Super Mario Bros|1}} or 'Satanists give VideoGame/PokemonXAndY 6/10 for not recruiting Satanists well enough'). And just like The Onion, a whole bunch of people in the video game media and on forums have ended up taking it seriously and using it as a 'news' source, looking like right morons in the process.

* ''Literature/HappyAppy'' [[http://happyappy.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Dronian/Revelations was eventually revealed]] to be a TrollFic that deliberately [[ClicheStorm embodied many worn-out creepypasta cliches]] many years after its original publication. (More specifically, the author originally intended for it to be serious, but after a friend laid out all the flaws in the story before publication, he decided to turn it into a trollpasta and ran with it.)

* The above risk was exploited in a different manner by the notorious ''Pokemon'' fandom presence Farla. Using a pen name, she wrote ''[[http://serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=105650 Lucki]]'', a TakeThat aimed at both writers of [[MarySue Mary Sues]] and [[TakeThatAudience the fandom that enables them]]. She does this by writing a so-called "Middling Sue", not over-the-top in any particular way, who was not recognized as such by the forum community and was in fact praised and defended against her in-story critics. [[spoiler:The [[BlackHoleSue distortion of the world around Lucki]] is dispersed at the end [[PaintingTheMedium through the influence of an Absol]]]].

* ''WebAnimation/NekoSugarGirls'' itself is actually a Stealth Parody. It becomes blatantly obvious as the series goes on, as well as by looking at the video tags. In fact a lot of {{fanime}} tend to be parodies.

* The popular fan film ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power/Rangers Power/Rangers]]'' mocks TrueArtIsAngsty by applying the trope to ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' of all things and playing it with a straight face. The message is that making something DarkerAndEdgier doesn't automatically make it any less stupid and goofy; if anything, it just makes all the stupid stuff stand out even worse than it did before. Naturally, a lot of people didn't get the joke and thought the creators were seriously attempting to make a grim and gritty ''Power Rangers'' movie, mainly because the filmmakers really [[ShownTheirWork did some in-depth research into canon]] and [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome put a lot of effort into making the film look good]], in order to help sell the satire. Even Saban themselves fell for it, which led to the film briefly getting taken down for copyright infringement.
