* The unofficial mascot for Stanford University is the [[PlayingATree Stanford Tree]]. The current tree creates the costume for next year's incoming tree, and invariably the tree costume is made to look as stupid as possible, featuring googly eyes, buck teeth, a stupid smile, and an overall disheveled, thrown-together appearance.

* Wrestling/RingOfHonor advertising spots are usually quick and to the point. But [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfn2Kwq3yiY that wouldn't do justice to Cheeseburger]].

* At the beginning of the [[NewWorldOrder nWo]] angle, WCW produced a series of deliberately cheap commercials with the disclaimer, "the following announcement has been paid for by the nWo." They were all in black and white and often featured recordings of Hogan yelling taunts, selective editing of the bad guys wiping out heroes, and sometimes action figures being destroyed.
** Likewise, the first Souled Out, billed as a PPV financed and organized by nWo, was also deliberately cheap.
* Generally, one of the ideas behind the concept of a jobber is that they are sub-par wrestlers in their respective league. When promoters want to show off the in-ring prowess of a certain wrestler that they want to turn in to a star, they put them in to easily-won matches with jobbers, who are designed to look mundane and easily beaten in comparison to the hopefully soon-to-be star. This makes the wrestler than the promoters are trying to, well, ''promote'' look like a competent and powerful character by having him handily dispose of the sucky wrestler.
** Some jobbers aren't portrayed as actually being "sucky wrestlers" as much as they are "wrestlers hopelessly out of their league". Some explicitly are shown to be terrible however. Also, when an onscreen non-wrestler personality (like a dastardly manager or an evil executive authority figure) is thrust in to the ring with an actual wrestler, the non-wrestler will play up being clumsy and just plain bad. Behind the scenes though, they usually have a bit wrestling training or even be former wrestlers; Wrestling/CaptainLouAlbano (former tag team champion), Mr. Fuji (who was a champion in several promotions) and the legendary Bobby Heenan are good examples.
* WWE's revival of Wrestling/{{ECW}} began with 2005 and 2006 ''ECW One Night Stand'' pay per views, both serving as ECW reunions. True to the original ECW, they were extremely lacking in the special effects and gigantic elaborate stages that WWE was known for. To add to this, it was held ECW's old stomping ground: the Hammerstein Ballroom, which is a tiny venue capable of seating capacity a mere 2,500, whereas most WWE PPVs are held in arenas that accommodate roughly 10,000). In 2007, One Night Stand would entirely drop the ECW theme for good to become a standard WWE pay-per-view with extravagant production values and conventional matches in a much larger arena; JoeyStyles remarked on camera that it seemed inappropriate.
* MickFoley as Dude Love. To drive home how different this persona was from Mankind and Cactus Jack, Foley would make his performances as Dude Love as boring as he could. One way included repeatedly putting his opponent into [[RunningGag headlock after headlock after headlock.]]
** Dude Love's Titan Tron was a perfect example of so bad it's good, and it was entirely intentional.

* Matt Smith of Music/{{Theocracy}} fame once recorded a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]] [[TakeThat "tribute"]] to Metallica's St. Anger, using a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_3ieuItPC0 folding chair for a snare drum and deliberately singing off-key]].

* In ''Anime/KimiToBoku'', the boys try to make an amateur manga for a club activity. They draw a page and the quality keeps on changing. One of the twins draws a very good adventurous page, while his brother made the knight wear a t-shirt and jeans because his costume too complicated and killed off the other two characters. Shun's page is very shoujo-esque with huge eyes which the others mock, and he inexplicably introduces a love interest. Chizuru just right out [[GenreShift changes the genre]] from a fantasy to a school drama, [[HerNameWasCodenameMarySue blatantly self inserts]] himself and his crush as the main characters, and has them randomly get married. Kaname's art skills are [[TerribleArtist just so bad]] that the others can't even focus on the sappy ending where they [[BabiesEverAfter have a kid]].

* ''{{Genshiken}}'''s ShowWithinAShow, ''Anime/KujibikiUnbalance'', was intended to be like this, a ClicheStorm that contained every absurdity ever to appear in anime. Then they actually made a few episodes of the show as an {{Omake}}, and real viewers loved it so much it became a real, full length series.
** Sadly, the full length series diverges quite a bit from the one within ''{{Genshiken}}'', both in art style as in plot.
* ''[[Manga/MartianSuccessorNadesico Nadesico]]'' had the ShowWithinAShow ''Anime/{{Gekiganger 3}}'', which has become somewhat legendary among fans.
** The dub adds an extra layer by intentionally [[HongKongDub mismatching the character's mouth-flaps]].

* ''Anime/RozenMaiden'' features a puppet crime show with anthropomorphic animals and plots vaguely inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novels, ''Detective Kun-Kun'', which is quite unexceptional and bland (complete with exaggerated acting, stiff, low-budget puppets, weak twists), yet all the dolls living in Jun's house are enthralled by it, screaming to warn the character of traps or betrayal, and genuinely shivering when a "scary" scene is happening, to the point of having Shinku in love with the title character, a pipe-smoking dog dressed as Sherlock Holmes (Jun even uses it to win an argument); yet this might also be to show that despite their age and occasional wisdom they all are little girls, and react as such, to tone down the many creepy and downer moments of the series.

* Pretty much the entire "169th Friends Concert" in ''Manga/TwentiethCenturyBoys''. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by the protagonist.
** Made even more obvious in the live-action movie adaptations, where you actually have to ''hear'' "Ai Rock Yuu" in all its horrific sucky glory.
* In episode 183 of ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'', the opening is redone to look as though it was drawn in MS Paint after an in-universe example of AuthorExistenceFailure leaves the show without an animator.

* ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'' contains many references to the fictional show ''Series/StormSaxon'' - a misogynistic, racist and homophobic action/adventure series, as well as the opinion news show "Voice of Fate" (which was eerily prescient of [[TheOReillyFactor Bill O'Reilly]]).
** The filmmakers appear to agree with that last point, since he's a clear parody of Bill in the film.

* In the ''Manga/IchigoMashimaro'' manga, Miu tries her hand at making a {{Shoujo}} manga herself. Her style is not that much inferior to the original, which is actually pretty good for a twelve-year old. Her storytelling leaves something to be desired, though.
