* Showing that this sort of thing is OlderThanTheyThink, many sinners depicted in Hell by Dante in ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' were still living folks with more authority than he'd have liked. The Eight Circle of Hell contained three Popes who were alive during Dante's time, including the current one, and numerous other government officials and nobles. (Fortunately for Dante, Pope Boniface VIII was said to have something of a sense of humor, and when one such official complained that "Dante has put me in Hell", he supposedly chuckled a little and said, "sorry, I can't help you, I'm not in charge of Hell". However, this opposition to the Vatican only lasted as long as the White Guelphs - who shared his ideas - held power in Rome, which they only did until 1301. Even so, Boniface would have allowed Dante to remain in Rome, but he left on his own accord.)

* Lampshaded in issue #5 of the first ComicBook/SheHulk ongoing, where She-Hulk and several neighbors get TrappedInTVLand. One of the shows they visit is a parody of ''WesternAnimation/RobocopTheAnimatedSeries'', and the TagalongKid, who's seen [[Film/Robocop1987 the original movie]], starts complaining about how wimpy the cartoon is, only for She-Hulk to slap a hand over his mouth.
-->"Careful what you say, Paul. That's a ''Marvel'' show. Knocking it could be more than ''my'' book's worth!"

* As an opening gag to one of the ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' strip collections, the publisher ran a "headline" proclaiming "Jim Davis a Fraud!" The exposé "revealed" that Garfield himself had been drawing the strip from the beginning and allowing Davis to take all the credit. The accompanying illustration showed Garfield sitting at a desk and drawing a cartoon of Davis in the trademark ''Garfield'' style.

* When ODB declared herself the best wrestler in the Ohio Valley and [[StartMyOwn created her own]] OVW Women's title belt, she claimed to have won it during an event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This was a TakeThat to Wrestling/BuddyRogers "winning" the Wrestling/WorldWrestlingFederation heavyweight title in an imaginary tournament supposedly held in Brazil. What set this apart from every other company who mocked WWF/E for this was that WWF/E covered 30% of OVW's operating expenses and was using the company as a developmental program.[[/folder]]

* WWE itself has spent the past two decades greenlighting stories in which Chairman Vince [=McMahon=] and various other authority figures are bitterly criticized, mocked, and made to look like fools - usually with those authority figures' full complicity. This arguably reached its peak with the "pipebomb" of the summer of 2011, when Wrestling/CMPunk was made to appear to have gone off-script with his live TV rant, even though he really hadn't.

* The first issue of the 2015 run of ''Comic/HowardTheDuck'' had Howard going to Florida. Tara Tam thought they were going to Disney World, but Howard replies "Who'd want to see [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse a bunch of pantless ducks]]?" Which not only is a swipe at Marvel's owner Disney, but an in joke to Howard wearing pants exactly because decades prior Marvel was threatened due to him being too similar to Westernanimation/{{Donald|Duck}}...
