Official Parody

A sister trope to the Deconstruction Crossover, 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 The Film of the Series.

May be an example of The Man Is Sticking It to the Man.
