I think some of the examples are more a case of "And You Were There", the tricky part is that both tropes are very similar. The main difference as I understand it at least, is that in this one each installment (whether movie or episode) is an entire new universe even with the same cast, whilst in And You Were There the characters are playing different roles in a fantasy or dream, which includes the characters imagining a story been told. If no one opposes I think is a good idea to make a clean-up and pass some of the examples to the latter.

In my mind I've imagined both a Super Smash Bros. themes Star Wars parody, and a Zelda themed LOTR parody. But I'm to lazy to actually write them down.

Seriously, we had to change the name of Commedia dell'Arte Troupe?! Something that's not a reference to a specific fandom, but a common-use term found on even The Other Wiki? How dumb do we expect our readers to be?

Pointless bitching over now. It's just that someone had to say it.

I...kind of agree. Commedia dell'Arte is a common and culturally significant enough term for the west that I think an English language wiki such as this one would only benefit from having it name an article. However, this page as already been thoroughly rewritten for the current title. That said, the current title is clear, concise, and somewhat witty, which puts it miles ahead of some of our other titles. So, a part of me thinks that it would be a waste to relegate it to a redirect.
