Travesty
A travesty trivializes the importance of its subject by using not-so-serious effects. Anything that takes itself too seriously is vulnerable to the technique of travesty.
Exaggeration
To enlarge, increase, or represent something beyond normal bounds so that it becomes ridiculous and its faults can be seen. Caricature is part of exaggeration.
Parody
To imitate the techniques and/or style of some person,
place, or thing in order to ridicule the original. For parody to be successful, the reader must know the original text that is being ridiculed.

Invective
Harsh, abusive language directed against a person or cause. Invective is a vehicle, a tool of anger. Invective is the bitterest of all satire.
Sarcasm
A sharply mocking or contemptuous remark. The
term came from the Greek word “sarkazein” which means “to tear
flesh.”
