* The Toxic Avenger Musical is particularly gleeful in its bashing of New Jersey. The villain song is called "Jersey Girl", and it describes the mayor of Tromaville to be evil and slutty. Then there's the opening song that establishes the setting.

* In ''DecadesOfDarkness'', much of the action during the North American War takes place in New Jersey, which serves as an analogue to [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI the Western Front]]. That's right, even in an AlternateHistory New Jersey is ''still'' [[WarIsHell Hell on Earth]].

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse:'' Steven and Lapis fly over Jersey (this isn't a shortening of "New Jersey", it's just called "Jersey" in their world). The place itself is complete with smog, traffic in the Turnpike, and people with a stereotypical Jersey accent.

*** Subverted in one episode that takes place in NJ itself, Jersey is depicted as boring but pleasant suburbia, which small-town raised [[MinnesotaNice Minnesota]] NiceGuy Marshall immediately falls in love with, while Ted and Lily come off as slightly elitist jerks in their unabashed love of NY. And Ted's hatred of New Jersey comes across as somewhat hypocritical considering that he didn't live in New York until after he graduated from college and is originally from UsefulNotes/Cleveland (the only place in the US that many consider more of a PlaceWorseThanDeath than NJ).

* ''Full Frontal with Samantha Bee'': in a segment about Syrian refugees living in New Jersey, Samantha pokes fun at the fact that they actually find the place quite delightful (the fact that it's not ground zero for an apocalyptic holy war might have something to do with that), observing with mock pity that they're so new to the country that they don't know they're supposed to hate it.

# [[PlaceWorseThanDeath The Armpit of America]], where people's hopes and dreams go to die. {{Suburb|ia}}s, [[TheMall malls]] and smokestacks dominate the landscape, most of the kids are either vapid {{Alpha Bitch}}es, {{Jerk Jock}}s or guidoes (see above), and the adults [[AdultsAreUseless aren't much better]]. [[PoliceAreUseless The cops are inept]] and more concerned with DWB (Driving While Black) than with the dude beating his wife just down the street. [[EmoTeen Our]] [[JadedWashout heroes]] are forced to have "fun" by loitering in convenience stores or malls, going to [[AmusementParkOfDoom Action Park]], and moping around to either a hip indie[=/=]{{emo}} soundtrack or '80s {{power ballad}}s (preferably BonJovi or [[BruceSpringsteen The Boss]]). The highways are jammed with broken heroes on a last-chance power drive. You can only wonder why 8.7 million people choose to make New Jersey the most densely-populated state in the nation. This is arguably the most popular portrayal of New Jersey in the media, and will be played either [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]] or dead seriously.
