- About anything and everything that's referenced in and is not part of 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.
- Tropic Thunder spoofed loads of moviemaking tropes and some war movie tropes.
- Everything Mel Brooks does.
- Since Soapdish is a parody of Soap Operas, many of their tropes also get spoofed: Back from the Dead (a decapitated character is brought back courtesy of Magic Plastic Surgery), Soap Opera Disease (the mysterious illness making a character mute is revealed as Brain Fever), Luke, I Am Your Father/Absurdly Youthful Mother (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 Soap Within a Show. The performers' personal lives include an unwittingly incestuous Love Triangle (an actress, her ex, and the daughter she bore him without telling him), Luke, I Am Your Father/Family Relationship Switcheroo (said actress told her daughter she was her niece until she unwittingly started dating her own father)... and more.
- Bad Boys II spoofed Flashed-Badge Hijack when Marcus waves down a car (driven by Michael Bay in a Creator Cameo), and Mike says that car would suck for a Chase Scene, so they should get a better one.
- Every Discworld novel ever written parodies a common fantasy trope or six.
- "Muffin the Vampire Baker", the most shameless parody to have appeared in Sluggy Freelance 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 Ratchet & Clank games do this quite a bit.
- The announcer banter in Ratchet: Deadlocked spoofs Think of the Children!, twice.
- Atop the Fourth Wall spoofs Totally Radical with the '90s Kid character.
- Kickassia is absolutely loaded with trope spoofs.
- The Nostalgia Chick spoofed Black Best Friend, with Nella, who's white but adopted.
- Dragon Ball Z Abridged 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 many many more.
- Kappa Mikey spoofs the Impractically Fancy Outfit 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.
- South Park of course makes fun of loads of tropes and plots from All Just a Dream to Zombie Apocalypse.
- The Simpsons, too, makes fun of plenty of tropes, and in fact one of its sendups of Retirony is where the trope name comes from.
- The Tick:
- About half the tropes in The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! are spoofed.
