* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': gives us Ronaldo in "Rocknaldo" where he asks to join the Crystal Gems and has even designated himself as "Bloodstone", parodying fans' tendency to create Gem versions of themselves, or Gemsonas, for fun or for RPing. Unfortunately, he also becomes an extremely CausticCritic of practically everything Steven and the Gems do, mirroring the harassment the Crewniverse receives from certain segments of the fandom whenever they release episodes or side material that those segments don't like. Steven ends up telling him off for this.

* In BabySittersClub ''Mallory Pike, #1 Fan,'' Mallory is this for her favorite YA author. First she sends her letter after letter after letter, growing angry when she doesn't respond to it ''personally,'' tracks her down to her home and makes herself the author's assistant...and then later gets angry at her because not all the events in her FICTION series actually happened to her in real life, and thought her a bad writer and a liar for it.

* Kenny King, Rhett Titus and Caprice Coleman tried to make their Cabinet's campaign to "Make Wrestling Great Again" look more popular than it really was by employing "fans" to chant for them at Wrestling/RingOfHonor events. The actual ticket buyers were [[IntendedAudienceReaction not amused]].[[/folder]]

* Davan and Jason's meeting the {{catgirl}}s of ''WebComic/SomethingPositive'', complete with long rant by [[AuthorAvatar authorial stand-in]]. Randy probably just wants to scare away the 'bad' audience (as opposed to the good audience, which he's adamant is most of the readers). Milholland also created a strip in ''Webcomic/SuperStupor'' about a superhero whose power is essentially {{retcon}}ning, and used that to take a jab at [[RunningTheAsylum comic book creators who try to force the comics to be like they were when they were young]], ''[[JoeQuesada Joe]]''. The strip also decried people who get their opinions from a site called [=TVTropes=].com (most likely a knock-off of our great and glorious wiki) rather than forming their own. There was another poking fun at some of ''Franchise/HarryPotter'''s older fans taking things too seriously (Based on a real incident about a midnight release costume contest)

* ''{{Pokemon}}'' has been doing this since the ''Gold/Silver'' days. The Pokemaniac and Pokefan trainer types (among others) are usually given dialogue that cements them as parodies of some of the franchise's more unhinged fans. The most recent games took this a step further by including a class of young trainers who all cosplay as Pikachu, and claim that their lifelong dream is to [[LoonyFan grow up to become one]].
