* Brutally parodied to the extreme in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''. One vault was an experiment in seeing how people would put up with a political scenario where everyone had to vote for a regular sacrifice. As such, the walls are littered with attack ads.
--> "Vote for the other guy, not for me! He's a commie, and lazy too!"

* ''Film/{{No}}'': A plot point. The people behind the "No" campaign come up with a commercial that is all anti-[[UsefulNotes/AugustoPinochet Pinochet]], showing horrifying clips from the 1973 coup and citing the thousands that Pinochet has tortured, imprisoned, and killed. Rene, who's just hired on as their ad man, doesn't think that will sell, and instead comes up with a much happier, upbeat commercial for No.

* Played with in a fake campaign ad on ''TheState'': An announcer details dangerous, controversial, or just plain weird policies a candidate allegedly supports over ominous music... Then it turns out it's actually an ad ''for'' said candidate, concluding that while he's crazy, he at least doesn't need a colostomy bag like his opponent does.

* Following the 2012 elections, TheDailyShow covered the aftermath with a segment about the citizens of Ohio (a major swing state and a must win for Republicans in any race) picking up the pieces after a storm of attack ads. The entire segment played like coverage of then recent Hurricane Sandy coverage.

* In Creator/RosemaryWells's picture book ''Otto Runs for President'', the ads for as school election start about halfway decent, with Charles's side promising meat in the cafeteria and Tiffany's promising more mirrors in the girls' bathroom, among other things. They quickly descend into Tiffany insinuating that Charles is a cheater, and Charles insinuating Tiffany of spending class dues on hairspray, and soon become worse than insinuations. "TIFFANY: Wrong on hairspray! Wrong for Barkladelphia School!" Meanwhile, Otto ignores both campaigns, quietly speaks to everyone in the school about what they actually want out of a school president and what the school needs, then passes out cookies with his campaign platform. He wins the election.

-->'''Toomey Impressionist:''' I think he [Trump]'s a national embarrassment and a disgrace. [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs A disgraceful embarrassment]] who I am proud to support for President of the United States. Donald Trump is exactly what this country needs: [[BaitAndSwitch a man with no idea what he's talking about, a man with no respect for democracy or common decency. A man who is totally unfit for office.]] [[HypocriticalHumor And I am proud to support him for office.]] You're not. Yes I am. Am not! Am so! Are not! Am too! Shut up! You shut up!

* During the real 2016 race, Donald Trump's inflammatory rhetoric caused some Republicans up for re-election to unendorse him. However, pressure from the Trump Republican base caused some of those Republicans who denounced him to un-unendorse him so as not to anger those who might vote for him. Like Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey, whose indecisiveness prompted ''Jimmy Kimmel Live'' to create [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubEwHwdyTpY a parody ad]].
