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 ParodiedTrope.

Writers can even spoof their own tropes as a form of SelfDeprecation.

Sometimes this comes in the form of an ExaggeratedTrope, or even a DownplayedTrope. Sometimes it overlaps with ZigZaggingTrope, InvertedTrope, AvertedTrope, or SubvertedTrope (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 LampshadeHanging.

Compare other kinds of PlayingWithATrope, SatireParodyPastiche, {{Parody}}, PlayedForLaughs, SpoofAesop.

Not to be confused with ParodyTropes (a list of tropes that are parodies themselves).
!!Tropes that are direct parodies of other tropes.

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* About anything and everything that's referenced in and is not part of ''[[{{Deadpool}} Deadpool's]]'' main, or more serious story arcs. A notable thing is that ''Deadpool'' not only spoofs and parodies every single comic book trope and cliche known to mankind, but anything that's pop-culture relevant, ''including'' pop culture itself is jabbed at.


[[folder: Fanfic ]]

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fanfic ''[[à Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'': Let's just say the author [[{{Parody}} parodied]] [[{{Hammerspace}} Hammerspace]] ''several'' times. From clothes to books to Death Notes to flowers, the characters' backs can store them all.

-->"It's alright Italia-kun. I always bring spare cosplays with me." He reached into some sort of secret compartment behind his back, pulling out an identical outfit to the one the brunet was currently wearing. Seriously, how do anime characters have such an ability?

--> Japan disappeared into a bathroom for a short amount of time before reappearing, now clad in a sharp black suit and tie with a white dress shirt and black pants, taking hexagonal glasses from his pocketóor wherever anime characters store all their stuffóbefore putting them on.

-->"Humph." The larger scoffed back. He then reached into the magical space all anime characters have, whipping out a book conveniently titled 'How to Catch a Runaway Italian'.

-->Both reached into the magical space all anime characters have, extracting black notebooksóJapan's having unidentifiable symbols on its cover as Italy's had 'Death Note' clearly printed on it in gothic lettersóbefore taking out pens and colored pencils as well, opening the pages before scrawling in them.

-->Giggling, the auburn reached into the magical space all anime characters have, an exquisite bouquet of utmost grandeur popping out from behind his back. "Tada!"

* ''Fanfic/ThoseLackingSpines'' loves to parody tropes as much as it loves [[DeconstructiveParody deconstructing them]].


[[folder: Film ]]

* ''Film/TropicThunder'' spoofed loads of moviemaking tropes and some war movie tropes.
* Everything Creator/MelBrooks does.
* Since ''Film/{{Soapdish}}'' is a parody of {{Soap Opera}}s, many of their tropes also get spoofed: BackFromTheDead (a decapitated character is brought back courtesy of MagicPlasticSurgery), SoapOperaDisease (the mysterious illness making a character mute is revealed as BrainFever), LukeIAmYourFather[=/=]AbsurdlyYouthfulMother (one character is revealed to be the mother of a character only a few years younger than her)... and those are just the ones parodied in the SoapWithinAShow. The performers' personal lives include an unwittingly incestuous LoveTriangle (an actress, her ex, and the daughter she bore him without telling him), LukeIAmYourFather[=/=]FamilyRelationshipSwitcheroo (said actress told her daughter she was her niece until she unwittingly started dating her own father)... and more.
* ''Film/BadBoysII'' spoofed FlashedBadgeHijack when Marcus waves down a car (driven by Creator/MichaelBay in a CreatorCameo), and Mike says that car would suck for a ChaseScene, so they should get a better one.


[[folder: Literature ]]

* Every ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ever written parodies a common fantasy trope or six.


[[folder: Live-Action TV ]]

* Music/LadyGaga spoofed {{Impractically Fancy Outfit}}s on a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' appearance.


[[folder: Theatre ]]

* ''{{Theatre/Wicked}}'' spoofs KickingAssInAllHerFinery by having Glinda wear a CoolCrown and PimpedOutDress (that even has [[FluffyFashionFeathers a white feather skirt]] in some productions) and try to use her wand like a kung fu staff. It turns into WhatTheFuAreYouDoing instead.


[[folder: Video Games ]]

* ''VideoGame/TotalOverdose'' parodies the HyperspaceArsenal in the opening scene, as Ram carries every single gun in the game in his arms, and a stick of dynamite in his mouth.
* The online roleplaying game ''VideoGame/ChampionsOnline'' includes a parody of the iconic Obama poster which reads "Trope"


[[folder: Webcomics ]]

* "Muffin the Vampire Baker", the most shameless parody to have appeared in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' up until that date, went so overboard for much of [[ one strip]] that the trope it was actually parodying has to be identified as ''parody itself'' (especially of characters).
* The ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' games do this quite a bit.
* The announcer banter in ''VideoGame/RatchetDeadlocked'' spoofs ThinkOfTheChildren, twice.


[[folder: Web Original ]]

* ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'' spoofs TotallyRadical with the '90s Kid character.
* ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'' is absolutely loaded with trope spoofs.
* ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick'' spoofed BlackBestFriend, with Nella, who's white but adopted.
* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' uses SpaceX far more than anyone has any right to. Some examples being: Space Duck, Space Skype, Space Austrailia (or more specifically, Space Brisbane. Go Space Broncos!), Space Frenchmen, Space Christ, Ole' Space Yeller, and [[RunningGag many]] ''many'' more.


[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* ''WesternAnimation/KappaMikey'' spoofs the ImpracticallyFancyOutfit trope in one of the last episodes, "Fashion Frenzy". Mikey and Lilly go overboard with all kinds of crazy clothing designs when trying to get their ideas bought by a well-known clothing designer. This included a cement dress and clothing made of garbage and food.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' of course makes fun of loads of tropes and plots from AllJustADream to ZombieApocalypse.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', too, makes fun of plenty of tropes, and in fact one of its sendups of {{Retirony}} is where the [[TropeNamer trope name comes from]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTick'':
** The show spoofed many SuperheroTropes, as well as a number of other tropes.
** Spoofed the LensmanArmsRace where the CIA made a sentient mustache, because "[[UsefulNotes/ColdWar The Russians]] were working on a ''beard''!".
* About half the tropes in ''WesternAnimation/ThePiratesInAnAdventureWithScientists'' are spoofed.
