* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'': In the WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail "rough copy", Strong Bad threatens to sue a sender named Malinko "into the Middle Ages" for drawing "a few comics" of Strong Bad and The Cheat. When Malinko's promised "rough copy" turns out to be [[TakeThatAudience a pair of crude scribbles]] that look nothing like Strong Bad, he and The Cheat dress up in balls of barbed wire in order to better resemble Malinko's terrible drawings. Unfortunately, Strong Sad shows up to point out that ''they're'' now the ones infringing on Malinko's "highly intellectual property", and "counter-sues" by throwing snow balls at Strong Bad and The Cheat.

* ''Fanfic/UltimateVideoRumble'': At the end of the second Rumble, after several [[EvilPlan Evil Plans]] result in massive destruction and injury across the Rumble node, the Rumble organizers are nonetheless able to break even by suing [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Rugal Bernstein]], as the deepest pocket available.
** Turnabout is fair play, and [[VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes Thanos]] ultimately sues the organizers for the loss of most of the Infinity Gems over the course of the third Rumble.

* Probably the best episode of the live action adaptation of ''Series/TheTick'' involved the eponymous character having a nuclear weapon excluded as evidence against Destroyo because he took it without a warrant.

* [[Comicbook/IronMan Tony Stark]] is renown for suing smaller, independent super teams over the use of the "Avengers" name. His victims include amongst others the ''Comicbook/GreatLakesAvengers'' and the ''Comicbook/MightyAvengers'' (vol 3 team). This bit him in the ass when through some convoluted events he lost the trade mark, which then reverted to the only other person ever applying for it... ''Flatman'' of the GLA, who was only willing to give it up if he and his team of SuperZeroes can be an official Avengers branch '''forever''', which leads to more hilarity suing as the Avengers[[TradeSnark ]]' long suffering layer tried to minimized the embarrassment caused by them.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', Harry is repeatedly being sued by talk show host Larry Fowler for allegedly damaging his studio during an interview. Fortunately, the suit never really gets anywhere, as not only does Harry have a good lawyer (thanks to the fact that he found the lawyer's daughter's lost pet), but the argument that "the wizard fried my studio's electronics via magic by being near them" likely earned a few stern glares from the judge. Sometimes, the ExtraStrengthMasquerade is ''useful.''
** ''Un''fortunately, Fowler just keeps trying, book after book. Even when Harry doesn't lose the case, all the court fees pile up.

'' Less fortunately, Fowler just keeps trying, book after book. Even when Harry doesn't lose the case, all the court fees pile up. Of course, given Harry's DestructiveSaviour tendencies he should thank his questionably-lucky stars this is the only thing he gets sued for.
