* Superflat is a PoMo art movement that was started by Takashi Murakami who was inspired by Creator/HideakiAnno. It sometimes satirizes many aspects of Japan (particularly things sparked by {{Anime}}) such as consumerism, the prevalence of {{Kawaisa}}, {{Lolicon}}, and {{Fanservice}} along with the {{Otaku}} subculture that is the driving force behind all of them. However, since certain artists associated with Superflat are lolicon otaku themselves, it could also be seen as a form of self-parody. Furthermore, it should be noted that not all Superflat works are satirical in nature - Superflat Monogram, by Murakami and Mamoru Hosoda, for instance, is merely a Louis Vuitton commercial.

* When [[Series/TheLateShowWithStephenColbert Stephen Colbert took over]] ''Series/TheLateShow'' in 2015, he took with him his satiric roots. He did change his approach, becoming rather more Horatian (except on the subject of Creator/DonaldTrump), as he shed his "Stephen Colbert-the-right-wing-pundit" character and simply appears as someone more or like his actual self (a rather mild-mannered liberal and suburban dad of deep but unostentatious Catholic faith).

* ''Magazine/{{Punch}}'', a British magazine launched in 1841, was a groundbreaking satirical periodical, including satire of then contemporary society and politics. (It closed, a shadow of its former self, in 2002, having been fighting a losing battle to ''Private Eye''--for which see below--for at least 30 years).

* ''Series/TheDailyShow'' satirizes modern US and global news events, as does the SpinOff, ''Series/TheColbertReport''. Whether their satire is Juvenalian or Horatian depends on the subject: Creator/FoxNewsChannel? Juvenalian (particularly when it comes to GlennBeck). UsefulNotes/BarackObama? Horatian. UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush? Are we talking 2001-2006 or 2006-2009?[[note]]First period is mostly Juvenalian, thanks to the Iraq War, etc., while second period he was seen as more or less pathetic, and leaned more Horatian.[[/note]] The rest of the media? What are they saying now? Etc., etc., etc.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/FullFrontalWithSamanthaBee'': Hosted by another ''Daily Show'' graduate, Creator/SamanthaBee. Furiously Juvenalian, freely mocking everyone Bee regards as awful (and Bee regards a ''lot'' of people as awful). Carries on the ''Daily Show'' tradition of sending "correspondents" to conduct man-on-the-street interviews in which interviewees' responses to questions are made the subject of ridicule.

* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'': Itís done an excellent job with poking fun at Human Life in the Far-Future, from the most technological of devices and gadgets, to the futuristic of food and drinks ever consumed.

** ''Punch'' was, interestingly enough, an express attempt at replicating a French satirical magazine of the day, ''Le Charivari'', a Paris magazine that lampooned July Monarchy-era French politics and mores--as evidenced by the British publication's full title, ''Punch, [[EitherOrTitle or the London Charivari]]''. That being said, the actual ''Charivari'' of Paris stopped doing satire shortly after ''Punch'' started, turning into a lifestyle magazine, after falling afoul of Louis-Philippe's censors.
** ''Punch'' also inspired an [[TransAtlanticEquivalent American publication]] named ''Puck'' (which ran 1871-1903).
* The pornographic magazine ''{{Hustler}}'' uses satire to express Larry Flynt's beliefs and opinions. Almost always Juvenalian.
