* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda: Fanfic/TheLightOfCourage'' started as ostensibly an animation test from a new computer-animated ''Zelda'' cartoon from Creator/DiCEntertainment. 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 but sincere ''Zelda'' movie script made into an animated movie. Joe_Cracker himself was fooled at first, even voicing [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]] in the first episode, but the parody became less stealthy once he backed out.

Compare IndecisiveParody which is when someone involved in an otherwise-serious project mock it. See also ParodyRetcon, when a creator tries to claim a badly-received work was one of these.

* ''LightNovel/DoYouLikeYourMom'' is Dachima Inaka's take on LittleSisterHeroine stories, only punched up to Mother-Son IncestSubtext rather than Brother-Sister. Mamako's interactions with Masato are outright scenes you would find in any little sister story, complete with "We're related, so it's okay" justifications from Mamako.

* Some of the earliest {{fanfic}} Stealth Parodies come from the Franchise/StarTrek fandom. For example, the writer known as Fred, Lover of Wesley's Ass was the creation of three or four of the most influential [=DS9=] fanfic writers of the 1990s. "Fred"'s stories parodied everything from {{songfic}}s to DieForOurShip to the tendency to turn strong characters into {{Woobie}}s. Naturally, [[MisaimedFandom fans loved his stories]]. They even thought Fred was real, which in fact he was -- he was one of the parodists' ''dogs''.
** Likewise, the TropeNamer for MarySue was a Franchise/StarTrek fic parodying what would eventually come to be known as, well, {{MarySue}}s.
* Harry Potter fandom is [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2062945/1/Lassi_the_amazing_Enchantress full]] of this kind of thing.

Compare IndecisiveParody which is when someone involved in an otherwise-serious project take the piss out of it. See also ParodyRetcon, when a creator tries to claim a badly-received work was one of these.

* Music/PassengerOfShit, who is perhaps comparable to the former. Some take him at face value, some believe he is, in fact, a cleverly crafted attempt at taking the piss out of the hardcore genre.

** One of the notes was 'Mages: Fixed a bug which occasionally permitted Arcane Missiles to work.' Everyone with an IQ above room temperature knew they were taking the piss. Especially fans of PennyArcade, who had seen the same fake bug fix in a [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2005/11/28 comic a year earlier]].

** The problem with this is that it runs head first into PoesLaw (and not to mention UnfortunateImplications), considering the amount of cultural appropriation when it comes to black culture and music, something she didn't seem to account for. At best she ends up in the same controversial situation as Maklemore, and Lorde. And that's being accused of patronizing black people.
