Shelton: This simulation is a little unrealistic, isn?t it? Tinner: What do you mean? Shelton: Some enemy army invades the base? There's no way that would ever happen. ::That last quote basically sums up Darwin's Soldiers.
The Nostalgia Critic performs a lampshade in the Captain N episode. "I mean, who would be so lazy as to show nothing but a white background the entire time?" after a short silence to let the viewers figure out the joke, he adds "They'd be fucking idiots".

Also, one of this troper's favorite NC jokes. In his SNICK review, he criticizes an All That skit for assuming that, if the lines are shouted, then they must be funny:
Nostalgia Critic: Can you believe those silly writers for thinking something is funny just because you scream it? SCREAMING IN EVERY OTHER SENTENCE IS NOT! FUNNY! It is LOUD and ANNOYING.

"he spread his arms wide WOMP-CRACK!, and I really couldn't let you rush in and pull a Deus Ex, how lame would that be?" Sara glared as the boy leant against a tree, standing on a branch ten feet in the air, "This isn't some stupid story. Someone could be killed out there!"
Hat Trick as well, though one is a subversion... Genre Savvy for the win.
"Our creator knows about as much about World of Warcraft as Pixel Girl."
This parody Real Trailer, Fake Movie by the folks at Cracked.com, in which the Tropes used in every Academy Award-winning film ever (particularly those of the 80s-90s) are mercilessly lampshaded. A lot.
