A sister trope to the DeconstructionCrossover, this is what happens where a parody or deconstruction uses an official character from an earlier work with permission from the original creator. Often, but not always, this will be TheFilmOfTheSeries.

May be an example of TheManIsStickingItToTheMan.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Creator/MarvelComics parodied their own characters in several series, ''Brand Ecch'', ''Not Brand Ecch'', and ''What The--?!'' among them.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The ''Film/{{Casino Royale|1967}}'' film of the 1960s, although it isn't canon in the sense that it was not made by Eon Films.
* The ''{{Franchise/Dragnet}}'' movie.
* The ''Film/StarskyAndHutch'' movie
* ''A Very Brady Movie'' in respect to ''Series/TheBradyBunch''
* ''Film/OSS117CairoNestOfSpies'' is a Film/JamesBond[=/=]TuxedoAndMartini parody movie based upon a series of French spy novels. It definitely gets into {{Deconstruction}} territory, as the protagonist is a jingoistic jerk and the movie shows him and his superiors as completely clueless of the public opinion in Europe's colonies.
* According to {{Word of God}}, the film version of ''Kiss Me Deadly'' is this for the original ''Literature/MikeHammer'' novels by Mickey Spillane.
* ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' is a {{Deconstruction}} version, although it's more like Heinlein's novel was chosen as an outlet to satirize PatrioticFervor and militarism, than that it was an attack on the novel itself.
* The 1930s series of Literature/BulldogDrummond movies had one where Drummond is injured in a car crash and Jack Pennington (played by comedian Jack Hulbert) is forced to stand in for him. It is considered part of the official series.
* To an extent ''Film/WildWildWest'', the WillSmith vehicle.
* ''Film/AbbottAndCostelloMeetFrankenstein'', and the subsequent A&C monster movies, are considered to be in-continuity with the classic UniversalHorror films.
* ''Film/TheLongGoodbye'', being a deconstructive adaptation of the Literature/PhilipMarlowe novels.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/HikoninSentaiAkibaranger'', while the very title notes that it is an unofficial ("Hikonin") SuperSentai, includes cameos from previous Sentai characters... though they're only in [=AkibaRed=]'s mind. It's also HotterAndSexier, and comes with a disclaimer telling the "good kids" who normally watch Super Sentai to stay away.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoTheCurseOfFatalDeath The Curse of Fatal Death]]'', produced by Creator/TheBBC and written by Creator/StevenMoffat who is the current showrunner for the {{revival}}.
** ''Recap/TheFiveishDoctorsReboot'' started as a fan film from former Doctor Creator/PeterDavison, but it became an official part of the 50th anniversary celebrations when Steven Moffat found out about it. In addition to being credited as an executive producer, Moffat plays himself as the villain of the piece.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''{{VideoGame/Parodius}}''

[[folder:WesternAnimation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuyPresentsLaughItUpFuzzball'' and ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken Franchise/StarWars'', both endorsed by George Lucas.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb Franchise/StarWars'' due to Creator/{{Disney}} holding the rights to both.
* ''Robot Chicken DC Comics Special''.
* Appearances of DC characters on the ''WesternAnimation/{{Mad}}'' television series can be seen as authorized, as the show is run by DC Comics. ''Mad'' even got a slot on ''WesternAnimation/DCNation''. (This could theoretically apply to the magazine as well.)
* ''PhineasAndFerbMissionMarvel'', in which PhineasAndFerb team up with characters from ''AvengersAssemble'' to take on the RedSkull ... and Doofenshmirtz.
