* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' had the "Please, Please, Please Get a Life Foundation", a support group for overly-obsessed fans, particularly of the Internet variety. What makes it even more disturbing is that it was largely based on a real guy, one Dennis Falk, the production team had encountered while working on ''TinyToonAdventures''. Not only that, it was significantly toned down from the real thing. TressMacNeille, Babs' voice actress had to cancel several convention appearances near his hometown because he had sent several very creepy fanletters that gave them reason to believe he would try to rape her.

* The ''NewKidsOnTheBlock'' cartoon, of all shows, had a character named Fanny. She and her friends were the very personification of NKOTB FanDumb of the time. Mind you, the ''only'' audience for this program were those very same obsessed New Kids fangirls, so we challenge our readers to find a more oddly-placed TakeThat. The various series and movies starring and NotQuiteStarring Music/TheBeatles also had mobs of [[GroupieBrigade screaming, insane fangirls]] - the thing is, none of them were established recurring characters. Most famously, ''A Hard Day's Night'' opens with the Beatles in full flight from a mob of their fans. The scene in ''A Hard Day's Night'' is actually a combination of TruthInTelevision and a subversion of this, as most of that scene was an actual stampede of fangirls which the quick-thinking Richard Lester told his crew to film.

* ''Series/AgentsOfShield'' did this towards Ward fans in Dirty Half-Dozen, taking several arguments Ward fans used and dumbing them down to be responded by May's "We all have our traumas". [[SarcasmMode Yes, because an adult's one bad day is just as bad and easily comparable to 30 terrible years from practically birth, through childhood, through teenager hood, all the way into adulthood.]] The fact that this obvious response or the fact SHIELD also killed two innocent to save one of their own was not addressed left many Ward fans unamused.
** The season finale was even more unsubtle, using a character as an obvious stand-in for Stand With Ward fans by having her quote the name verbatim while condoning him torturing someone because she is in love with Ward; never mind that most Stand With Ward fans are people who believe he can be redeemed and sympathize with him, not people who think his actions are justified or agree with what he is doing.

* A reoccurring character in the short-lived Podcast/{{Wisenheimers}} is Christian, an overweight 11-year-old boy who frequently obsesses over the focus character of WebAnimation/WackyGameJokez4Kidz, Mickey the Dick, prominently based on a listener who previously submitted fan mail to the show. Christian is subsequently Main/DrivenToSuicide after being rejected by Mickey on numerous occassions, only before returning in a later episode as a ghost.

* Due to Matt Wilson's CreatorBacklash, ''BonusStage'' had moments where he really hated his fans, especially [[TheWikiRule the wiki]]. The greatest example is probably in episode 80, "The Terror From Beyond Imageshack", in which a wide variety of actual art from fans were made into characters and mocked for their inability to make sense or original content. They were eventually all removed, except for "the Bonus Stage Wiki Guy" (who was admittedly a comedically accurate portrayal).

* Cracker's hit "Get Off This" was basically one long TakeThat from lead singer David Lowery to the fans of his old group, CamperVanBeethoven, who accused him of selling out. It characterizes said fans as "petty little ayatollahs" with "dirty hair and tittie-rings."

* {{Ween}} has a song they only perform live called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHAL6EG5kBM "Leave Deaner Alone"]] (warning: lyrics [[ClusterFBomb very NSFW]]), a song in which Dean Ween sings about his disdain for Ween's more obnoxious fans. Despite this, however, Deaner ''does'' seem to have an appreciation for most of his other fans because he keeps in touch with them on his blog when he's not touring and even favorited a couple Ween fan covers and fan-shot live bootleg videos on [[http://www.youtube.com/user/djankle his Youtube channel]].

* ''{{Smallville}}'' had an episode called "Action", where a fan of a comic book was sabotaging the set of a film adaptation because [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks he didn't think they were doing it right.]]
** In Season 8, after many years of saying "No, the [[WMG/{{Smallville}} Chlois Theory]] will NOT come true," the {{Smallville}} showrunners finally decided to have some fun spoofing this fan theory in the episode "Hex," to the annoyance of the Chlois theorists...but the utter delight of everyone else in the fan base, who were equally tired of the Chlois theory.

* ''{{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 [[YoureInsane grow up to become one]].
