* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', Perry's secret passage to OWACA HQ involves going through a mirror, then falling down a rabbit hole where he passes the Mock Turtle and the Jabberwock. Major Monogram says it really freaks out intruders.

* Prisoner 775 from ''Ben10UltimateAlien'' is clearly a reference to the Cheshire Cat. It has the exact same pattern as seen in the Disney version, and is a chameleon that can blend perfectly with it's surroundings, except for its teeth. At one point, the teeth are all that you see of it.

* Accidentally done, according to WordOfGod, in ''VideoGame/WeirdAndUnfortunateThingsAreHappening'', as while Alicia does do into an EldritchLocation, Alicia wasn't named to reference Alice. Instead: "I've always liked the names of the two knights that work with Agrias and end up joining you in Final Fantasy Tactics. Their names are Alicia and Lavian. So that's where [Alicia's] name comes from XD;;;"

* MarvelComics has its own Lewis Carroll themed villain, the White Rabbit. At least for a while, she was written as [[HarmlessVillain an utter joke of a villain]], meaning she could be a TakeThat against other ''Alice'' inspired villains.

to:

* ''Manga/TheVoynichHotel'''s Alice has a few Wonderland elements surrounding her character. Besides her name, she invokes the same imagery as the original Alice by being an oblivious blonde-haired child in the middle of a war-scarred isle full of overall crazyness, having a sister who borrows her name from another of Lewis Carroll's works [[spoiler: ("Snark", who is a serial killer)]], and wearing a rabbit mask [[spoiler: that is actually a demonic tool obtained through said sister's DealWithTheDevil]].

* In several comics featuring ComicBook/DoctorStrange, the CosmicEntity Agamotto has appeared in a form similar to the hookah-smoking Caterpillar in Carroll's first book.



* Comicbook/DoctorStrange's mystical ally Agamotto appears to him as a giant caterpillar on an equally-large mushroom, smoking a hookah. Justified, since Agamotto assumes AFormYouAreComfortableWith out of Strange's memories of ''Alice in Wonderland''.

* The ''Franchise/{{Discworld}}'' has a minor character called Lady Alice Venturi, a noblewoman from one of Ankh-Morpork's great families, who led a sheltered life and then decided what she'd ''really'' like to do was to explore the Disc's {{Expy}} of DarkestAfrica. Unfortunately her sheltered life led her to be blissfully ignorant of a lot of the things the natives got up to; her sketches, paintings and descriptions of native fertility rites thus became best-sellers when she got home, recouping the costs of her expeditions many times over, attracting packed houses to her lectures (with lantern-slides), and several obscenity actions. Her passage through "Africa" was marked by groups of sniggering natives wondering how much more crap they could get past the radar, in the guise of newly-invented traditional fertility dances, before she cottoned on. Mainly meant as a parody of those GrandeDame Victorian women who went to Africa on solo journeys, and who got out alive by looking imperious and shouting ''very loudly'' at the natives, Creator/TerryPratchett slips in a concealed joke here: an innocent Victorian woman knowing nothing about sex and going "oh my goodness!" in a bizarrely strange place is, of course, ''Alice in [[DarkestAfrica Howondaland]]''. One thing of note about this ShoutOut in particular is that Terry Pratchett HATED Alice In Wonderland, so this would also classify as a TakeThat .
