* Strangely inverted, or maybe an example of LampshadeHanging, in ''Film/TheCalamariWrestler'', a Japanese ''live action'' film about a woman who falls in love and [[{{Squick}} has sex with]] a guy who is trapped in the form of a squid. I believe he turns back into a man in the end.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' lampshades this with Krieger's anime collection, which includes such titles as ''Fisherman’s Wife'' and ''Fisherman’s Wife II: The Retentacling''. It is also worth noting that Krieger has a [[VirtualGhost holographic]] [[RobotGirl girlfriend]] designed in anime style.

Parodied. When Anime/SpeedRacer joins NASCAR, he's sponsored by the creators of Japan's number one {{anime}} series, which is apparently a Naughty Tentacles {{anime}} (it's censored, so we're to assume it's very smutty) with a LampshadeHanging for a translation of its name.

This {{trope}} began in the 80s, on account of the release of {{anime}} such as ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' and ''Urotsukidouji'' in the west. Since most purveyors of imported media back then were either undersexed, nerdy collectors specifically seeking out "mature" fare, or huckster distributors looking to make a fast buck on said collectors, the more "shocking" examples of the medium tended to be the ones that got priority for localization. Most {{hentai}} is actually vanilla sex, basically heterosexual porn. Glorified rape stories are easily the most visible and due to Japanese chauvinism [[GirlOnGirlIsHot lesbian porn]] is actually quite rare and generally featured alongside straight sex...or rape. Naughty Tentacles were mostly a fad around the end of TheEighties and early TheNineties, and currently they're at best a throwaway joke on some FanService shows.

* The ''MADMagazine'' feature "If Truth in Advertising Laws Applied to Comic Books" described a Japanese imported series as "something to do with a boy who fights a giant squid." The illustration showed a boy with an enormous grin standing in front of a bunch of girls, all with [[PantyShot panties exposed]] due to being grasped by tentacles.
* ''DorkTower'' once had Ken [[CharacterFilibuster ranting]] to Igor and Carson about how [[SturgeonsLaw most]] {{anime}} is absolutely terrible and he has no idea why it sells...at which point he was enlightened by the phrases "let's all take our clothes off now" and "where did all these tentacles come from?" emerging from the TV. It does have to be said that [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny this was several years ago.]]

* ''{{MST3K}}'' has made joking references to seedy gas stations having "Violent Animated Asian Porn" videos for rent a few times. The jokes really ramped up when they'd get their hands on a Japanese movie: "Oh no, so is this gonna be a super-violent porn cartoon?" "Heh, they're swinging in for some violent porn comics."
* In ''YesDear'', when Greg's father becomes a comic book fan, the normally prudish Kim asked, "[[AnimationAgeGhetto Normal comics like for kids?]] Or those Japanese porno comics like ''[[{{Urotsukidouji}} Overfiend]]'', where young women are taken against their will by demonic monsters?" Later in the episode, it's stated he should hide his Japanese porn better.

** Another snide little comment from ''The Onion'', this time in their ''PrincessMononoke'' review, contends that Miyazaki is the only Japanese animator who has avoided the "unsavory excesses of his {{anime}} counterparts." Notable in that, while the other examples listed here are typical of the publication's nothing-is-sacred, pull-no-punches brand of humor, this review comes from its AV Club site, which generally strives to be a bit more serious.

* There are two parody {{anime}} trailers on [[GTARadio the radio]] in ''GrandTheftAutoIV''; one is HumongousMecha, the other, ''Princess Robot Bubblegum'' is this. However the full episode of the later, which is viewable in the ''Ballad of Gay Tony'' DLC, is more of a general parody of shōjo and seinen shows.
