A sister trope to the Deconstruction Crossover, this is what happens where a parody or deconstruction uses an official character from an earlier work with permission from the original creator. Often, but not always, this will be The Film of the Series.
Films — Live-Action
- The Casino Royale film of the 1960s as well as Never Say Never Again, although neither are canon in the sense that they were not made by Eon Films.
- The Dragnet movie.
- The Starsky and Hutch movie
- A Very Brady Movie in respect to The Brady Bunch
- OSS 117 Cairo Nest of Spies is a James Bond / Tuxedo and Martini parody movie based upon a series of French spy novels. It definitely gets into Deconstruction territory, as the protagonist is a jingoistic jerk and the movie shows him and his superiors as completely clueless of the public opinion in Europe's colonies.
- According to Word of God, the film version of Kiss Me Deadly is this for the original Mike Hammer novels by Mickey Spillane.
- Starship Troopers is a Deconstruction version, although it's more like Heinlein's novel was chosen as an outlet to satirize Patriotic Fervor and militarism, than that it was an attack on the novel itself.
- The 1930s series of Bulldog Drummond movies had one where Drummond is injured in a car crash and Jack Pennington (played by comedian Jack Hulbert) is forced to stand in for him. It is considered part of the official series.
- To an extent Wild Wild West, the Will Smith vehicle.
- Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein, and the subsequent A&C monster movies, are considered to be in-continuity with the classic Universal Horror films.
- Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger, while the very title notes that it is an unofficial Super Sentai, includes cameos from previous Sentai characters... though they're only in AkibaRed's mind.
