An Allegory Adventure is a creative work in which the characters, plot, or both parallel those in another creative work. It isn't a WholePlotReference, because the reenacted story is acknowledged -- sometimes as fiction, other times as [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis a record of real events]]. In fact, there is usually an explicit connection between the two stories.

The characters in an Allegory Adventure might be [[CaptainErsatz clones]] of those in the story being imitated, or some of them might actually ''be'' those characters. In the latter case, expect to see the LiteraryAgentHypothesis in effect. In either case, the events in the Allegory Adventure are likely to be suspiciously similar to the the ones in the story being aped-- but don't expect anyone to notice.
