Parodied Trope
Sometimes it's just fun to make fun of a trope. It's fun to screw around with it or find the humor in those tropes. Thus we have the Parodied Trope.

Writers can even spoof their own tropes as a form of Self-Deprecation.

Sometimes this comes in the form of an Exaggerated Trope, or even a Downplayed Trope. Sometimes it overlaps with Zig-Zagging Trope, Inverted Trope, Averted Trope, or Subverted Trope (if the context makes it clear the aversion or subversion is a joke). If the trope is called on by the author, but still used, it's a Lampshade Hanging.

Compare other kinds of Playing with a Trope, Satire/Parody/Pastiche, Parody, Played for Laughs, Spoof Aesop.

Not to be confused with Parody Tropes (a list of tropes that are parodies themselves).
