* For some strange reason, in the first issue of ''ComicBook/HowardTheDuck Vol. 6'' (2016, for the record), the part of "Nameless Marvel Comics Redneck Conservative {{Strawman}} #4,451" is played by what is very clearly Soos from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''. Triply confusing: Disney owns both properties, so there was no need to alter his shirt design; it's unclear why they'd want their own property portrayed as an aggressive loser; and Soos isn't even remotely unpleasant in the source material, being a KindheartedSimpleton.

* Writer Steve Skeates famously began a story in an issue of ''ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}'' (published by Creator/DCComics), only to resolve it in an issue of ''[[ComicBook/SubMariner Namor]]'' (published by MarvelComics) after the former series was cancelled. The ''Namor'' installment contained a very brief BroadStrokes recap of the events of the previous issue, and thanks to the obvious copyright problems, Aquaman could not be named or explicitly shown. This resulted in only his hand being seen, and the narration itself refusing to identify the hero by name.

* ''VideoGame/TransportTycoon'' featured real-life vehicles in the original British release. Just to give a few examples, there were aircraft from Boeing, [=McDonnell=]-Douglas, and Airbus; road vehicles from British Leyland, Ford, and Volvo; train locomotives designed by Stanier and Gresley, and later in the game the Eurostar and TGV. For the American release, these were changed to fake companies to avoid litigation. These were carried forward into ''TransportTycoonDeluxe'' and ''[=OpenTTD=]''.

* Gary Gygax's own seemingly aborted version of the castle (of which only the top levels have been published due to [[AuthorExistenceFailure his untimely death]]) were a Lawyer-Friendly Cameo storm of their own -- many names and locations had to be changed since they were WizardsOfTheCoast IP, even though Gygax tried to keep as much of the Greyhawk feel so that canny [=DM=]s could fill in the blanks if they wanted to. In one section, he takes a brief TakeThat against TSR, talking of the corrupt city of Dunfalcon...

** Actually, Pokémon makes quite a few references. For starters, [[http://www.pokefarm.com/wp-content/rotom.jpg Rotom]] is based off of [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a9/Pulseman_box_art.jpg Pulseman]] and Volt Tackle is based off of his signature move. It helps that the creator of Pokémon also made Pulseman.
** A MemeticMutation has it that the Pokémon Yungoos looks similar to ''Creator/DonaldTrump'', as described [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/yungoos-trump here]].

Often used as part of a TakeThat, but just as often a [[AffectionateParody friendly]] ShoutOut. If the character being imitated is from RealLife, see NoCelebritiesWereHarmed. Compare WritingAroundTrademarks and CaptainErsatz.
