Added DiffLines:

** The anvil is lightened by some of the reasons for the cultural conflict between Callan and the orc tribes being very obviously irreconcilable: on the human side the knights are oppressive, violent, and have the actual authority to make legally binding rulings. On the orc side, necromancy is considered a normal magical practice and rape is a standard legal tool for compelling compliance. Dominic's family's wealthy, powerful, and generally privileged perspective is the viewpoint of the comic, and the reader is seeing [[UnreliableNarrator how he feels about the situation]].

* Invoked and lampshaded in ''Webcomic/PlanetOfHats'', when Kirk literally drops an anvil while delivering AnAesop in "[[http://www.mezzacotta.net/planetofhats/episodes/0072.html Let That Be Your Last Battlefield]]".

* ''IrregularWebcomic'' decide to drop the anvil of BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor in [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/2182.html this]] strip. Intentionally, with the link to this page.
* Tim Buckley's self insert into [[http://farm1.static.flickr.com/27/51840032_3281fe1467.jpg?v=0 this]] CtrlAltDel strip, where he rants at Jack Thompson. Also contains the irony that Tim is threatening Jack Thompson for saying that gamers are violent and that his video game obsessed main character performs acts of extreme violence on a regular basis (not to mention that his little spiel ends with the phrase "don't fuck with us").

* Made fun of in [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00772.html this]] ''Webcomic/NipAndTuck'' comic. Nip, a B-movie writer/star, talks about why he does not do romance in his movies. He explains how bad Hollywood romance plots are. He mentions ''MyFairLady'' and ''Theatre/TheTamingOfTheShrew'' and how a girl with nothing wrong with her is run through a "Magic Makeover Machine" which is supposed to end up with the hero seeing her true inner beauty. The illustration that accompanies the talk shows a simple caricature of a woman getting smashed by a hydraulic press with the word "AESOP" written on it.

* ''DominicDeegan'' drops numerous anvils of "intolerance is bad!" We know this because everyone who acts intolerantly is usually portrayed as irredeemably evil, not to mention the fact that something horrible will probably happen to them before the end of the arc.

* ''PastelDefenderHeliotrope'' was rather unsubtle to readers with ideas of the oppression of women and sexual identities and [[PathOfInspiration evils of religion]]. To make sure ALL the bases were covered, JDR reveals in the ending that the entire thing was started because some robots wanted to ask permission to do we're-not-sure-what but no one was around to ask. Just to make sure that she's striking out against [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil anti-piracy]] legislation in the most Anvilicious way possible.
