SuperTrope index of all tropes having to do with referencing the nature of one's own medium, style and the almighty fourth wall to make a laugh or two.

Insert joke about the FourthWall of the wiki here while I go about linking to tropes that don't exist, and adding examples to the SelfDemonstratingArticle list.

!!Tropes involved:
* AffectionateParody
* AsideGlance
* {{Camp}} (occasionally)
* {{Deconstruction}}
* DeconstructedTrope
* DeconstructorFleet
* DescribeTopicHere (a quick self reference for a page here, that doesn't get in the way of the main description)
* HypocriticalHumor
* HypocrisyNod
* LampshadeHanging
* LeftItIn
* MediumAwareness
* NoFourthWall
** Some regions of the SlidingScaleOfFourthWallHardness
* PlayingWithATrope
* RageAgainstTheAuthor
* SatireParodyPastiche (and a little bit of all three)
* SelfDeprecation
* SelfParody
* SpoofAesop
* SubvertedTrope (sometimes)
* ThisTropeNameReferencesItself

--> The fourth wall here is broken so much, we're now owned by Home Depot!
