While some works love PlayingWithATrope and others are so lacking in self-awareness that they play everything painfully straight[[note]] say it with me now, ''"cliii-cheee"''[[/note]], there are some gems that take delight in their {{trope}}s and then turn them UpToEleven. This is especially common in [[{{Reconstruction}} Reconstructions]], where all the narrative conventions that made the genre fun are present in full (and generally goofy) force, or parody works, usually of the [[AffectionateParody affectionate variety]], where the whole point is to laugh at as many {{trope}}s as humanly possible.

* ''FanFic/{{Fractured}}'', a ''MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[[spoiler:[=/=]''[=Borderlands=]'']] [[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover crossover]] and its sequel ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', are stuffed with tropes. They have pages here ([[CaptainObvious obviously]]), and [[WikiWalk reading]] TVTropes helped get the author started on fanfiction in the first place.

* ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero'' is a ''{{LightNovel/Haruhi|Suzumiya}}'' and TVTropes crossover. Yes, a series already on this list has been crossed over with this site.

* ''Fanfic/WeissReacts'' plays straight, averts, discusses, lampshades, subverts and zigzags as many tropes as it can and is itself crossed over with TvTropes through the TropePantheons. It helps that the author is also a troper.

* In a podcast, the ''Webvideo/LoadingReadyRun'' crew have expressed a desire to use every trope in the main TVTropes directory. Good luck to them.

-->''It�s an [[ExaggeratedTrope absolute distillation of the superhero genre]]. No plot lines, characters, emotions, nothing whatsoever. It�s people posing in the street for no good reason. It is people getting kicked, and then exploding.'' -- WarrenEllis

* ''Series/RemoteControl'', the {{MTV}} TV trivia GameShow that revolved around a [[PromotedFanboy TV junkie-turned-game-show-host]] and parodied just about every game show in existence and then some, naturally played with as many Tropes as it could get its hands on.

Added DiffLines:

* VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'', being a DeconstructorFleet on dungeon crawler tropes, accomplishes this with a wide variety cast of characters with unique personalities as well as throwing in many CosmicHorrorStory tropes that it can think of.

** Made even more hillarious by a real spy (Garak) accompanying Bashir in the holoprogram and lampshading how ridiculous the JamesBond elements are. Also, Garak's attempts to be a real spy in the simulation don't work because it's specifically designed to be SpyFiction.

* Pretty much the whole ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' could fit in the trope, specially after ''Symphonia''. They combine bizillions of tropes with some well-calculated unexpected twists and/or original ways of presenting those tropes. And, ironically, thanks to that they manage to pull off some great, hard-to-forget stories. In other words, in Namco Tales Studio know very well what they're doing.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', the Webcomic/{{MS Paint Adventure|s}} that is currently in progress, does the same thing for simulation games, fantasy, and sci-fi that ''Problem Sleuth'' did for adventure games, noir, and Anime-style action. Many time travel tropes, a jillion different kinds of AppliedPhlebotinum, video game themed {{technobabble}}, characters with increasingly bizarre traits, and a great big heaping of JustForFun/TropesOfLegend all mix together with a great soundtrack and whimsical art style into the one of the most Troperiffic things in existence. The main work page itself [[TroperCriticalMass became so long]] that the tropes listed had to be put into folders! In fact, ''Homestuck'' as well as other hugely Troperiffic franchises are in part responsible for some of the recent server crashes. They have so many tropes they are crashing the site.
