But sometimes it's a bit more mean-spirited than that. Whether it's because of a [[TheRival perceived rivalry]], [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy]], bitterness or {{pride}}, the mention will be derogatory and boastful. More often than not, rather than being a "Take that!" to the disparaged show, it'll reflect ''even worse'' on the joker making a good production turn sour, and a bad production look like a monumental act of hubris. It can be especially jarring [[HilariousInHindsight (and often hilarious for reasons the producers didn't intend)]] if the show being mocked goes on to win popular and / or critical acclaim, awards, and respect from its audience, while the show doing the mocking becomes widely reviled or forgotten. And even when that doesn't happen, a particularly nasty and/or unsubtle Take That can alienate fans of whatever it's targeting rather than making them laugh. [[TropesAreTools On the flip side]], however, a "Take That" which is well-done and on-point can be enjoyable and satisfying to watch (even if mainly in a ''schadenfreude'' sense), and if the creator is particularly skilled, then even the ''target'' might be willing to admit that the Take That had a point, or at least was ActuallyPrettyFunny.

Not to be confused with ThisLoserIsYou, nor with the [[Music/TakeThat British boy band]]. Nor the BigWordShout used by protagonists in the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series, nor the BoardGame mechanic where players directly make moves against others in the game. Often a SuperTrope of MuseAbuse.
