* One of the Activity cards in ''TabletopgGame/ChezGeek'' has your geeks playing a "Stupid Card Game" that's clearly supposed to be ''Chez Geek'' itself.

* It also backfired on Wrestling/JayLethal at ''Supercard Of Honor X'' when he claimed ROH giving that year's top prospect a title shot against him proved ROH were out of ideas ([[RealLifeWritesThePlot they were as far as sticking to what they had been advertising]], [[TemptingFate but they were not out of challengers for Lethal]])

* It seemed Wrestling/MattHardy, who was already announced to be challenging for the television title on a taping after Wrestling/RingOfHonor's eleventh anniversary show and called Matt Taven's match with Adam Cole an after thought, was making fun of the TrailersAlwaysSpoil ForgoneConclusion nature of pro wrestling. Truth Martini then hit Cole with his book, leading to Taven's victory and Hardy's [[NeverTrustATrailer abrupt removal from the title picture]] being the real joke.

* Wrestling/KurtAngle had fans chanting "YOU SUCK!" to the beat of his theme music, whether he was a {{heel}} or a {{face}}. During one HeelFaceTurn after neck surgery, he came out to those chants, declared "You have no idea how good it feels to hear those words again!" and then started leading the chants. The next night on ''[=SmackDown=]'', when his proteges [[Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin]] said they were sick of getting those chants themselves, Angle replied "You don't deserve to have these people chant 'you suck!' I ''earned'' it!"
* Wrestling/JohnCena posed for photos with fans wearing "I hate Cena" T-shirts after defeating Wrestling/{{Batista}} for the WWE Championship in Wrestlemania XXVI.
** Cena ''revels'' in being simultaneously the most loved AND most hated man in pro wrestling, as well as being the only guy who can get fans chanting stupid things like "Fruity Pebbles". From one post-injury-rehab promo:
--->'''John:''' I even miss that guy in section 26B telling me I suck!
--->'''Random Guy in the Audience:''' YOU SUCK!
--->'''John:''' ''[throws up his arms in victory with a huge smile]''

* In TheMusical version of ''Film/DirtyRottenScoundrels'', the song "Great Big Stuff" has Freddy is dreaming about all of the things he will buy (suck as "a mink track suit") when he becomes rich.

** Pastis goes so far as to draw himself smoking cigarettes ''despite the fact that he never smokes'', not because it looks cool, but because he thinks it makes him look like a loser.

Sure we all have egos to some degree, save for severe psychological problems, but sometimes you just may not feel like being self-centered, or ethnocentric or nationalistic. Sometimes you may just feel like cracking a joke that says, "Ha! TakeThat, Me[=/=]Us!" This is the essence of self-deprecation.

** Another run of strips had Dogbert as the charismatic leader of the vegetarian lobby. Since this was clearly a bit of an AuthorTract by the vegetarian Adams, he started off by establishing that the reason the vegetarians ''need'' a charismatic leader is that they're all "scrawny weaklings".
* ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty''
* In one strip, minor character Yaz Pistachio asks Opus to give her just one name worse than her own.

* Breathed also mocked his career a few times. In one arc where Opus became engaged, he realized he needed a better salary then what he made doing the personal ads, so he shamelessly begged the editor for a better paying position, saying he would do ''any'' job, no matter how demeaning. He got one as the paper's cartoonist. Also, in another arc, AmoralAttorney Steve Dallas wanted a better job than "getting rapists and serial killers off the hook". Opus suggested cartooning; Steve jabbed him with a pencil and shouted, '''"I have ''some'' scruples, dude!"'''

* StewartLee is very fond of this, mostly about his weight. One of his routines is about when he reappeared on TV after a couple of years' hiatus; with people not even knowing who he is yet still taking pot shots at how he looks.

No, sorry, not Mark Lamarr that other guy, the singer. You know, thatís it, Edwyn CollinsÖ but heís let himself go. No, not that man, but a 1930s newspaper cartoon of Tarzanís face, which has let itself go."''
