* ''Comicbook/UnbeatableSquirrelGirl'' #8 has one for fans who refuse to accept Jane Foster as the new [[TheMightyThor Thor]]. When Comicbook/{{Loki}} is met by both Jane and the original Thor, he says it's nice to see the actual, ''true'' Thor instead of some wannabe, and then clarifies that the real deal he's talking about is Jane, not her predecessor.

* Likewise, there's an issue from Jane Foster's run as Thor where she fights the Absorbing Man, who is portrayed as a misogynistic JerkAss and parrots a bunch of the common talking points that Jane's detractors (and internet sexists) are fond of using in real life.
* Similarly, there's a ''Comicbook/HowardTheDuck'' back-up story where Howard meets two irate superhero impersonators who complain about how hard it is to be a white male in their line of business, because all those pesky [[AffirmativeActionLegacy women and minorities]] keep stealing all good superhero identities.

** "Death in Heaven" has {{Cosplay}}ing Doctor-fangirl Osgood who, despite being a wholly sympathetic character, gets murdered while wearing the Tenth Doctor's [[NiceShoes signature shoes]] and the Eleventh Doctor's [[IconicOutfit bow tie]]. Combine that with the scene at the climax of the episode when the Twelfth Doctor announces that he's not a good man (referencing the Eleventh Doctor's 'good man' arc) and that he's not a MessianicArchetype (like the Tenth Doctor was) but 'an idiot with a screwdriver', and it is a pretty solid urging for fans obsessed with the past two Doctors to move on.

** "Death in Heaven" has {{Cosplay}}ing Doctor-fangirl Osgood who, despite being a wholly sympathetic character, character and fan favorite from her previous appearance in "The Day of the Doctor", gets murdered while wearing the Tenth Doctor's [[NiceShoes signature shoes]] and the Eleventh Doctor's [[IconicOutfit bow tie]]. Combine that with the scene at the climax of the episode when the Twelfth Doctor announces that he's not a good man (referencing the Eleventh Doctor's 'good man' arc) and that he's not a MessianicArchetype (like the Tenth Doctor was) but 'an idiot with a screwdriver', and it is a pretty solid urging for fans obsessed with the past two Doctors to move on. (Note, however, that [[spoiler: there were actually two Osgoods by that point: the original and her Zygon double. One of them -- even the Doctor doesn't know which -- appears in the following season, gets to be his temporary companion, and even gets a new "sister" at the end]].)
** The Series 9 finale three-parter addresses complaints that Clara Oswald, the Doctor's companion from Series 7B onward, quickly became much too powerful/influential a companion starting in "The Name of the Doctor" and continuing into "The Day of the Doctor", "The Time of the Doctor", and "Listen", and that the Series 8 StoryArc was far more interested in ''her'' side of the story than the Twelfth Doctor's. In that three-parter, she's [[spoiler: been Killed Off for Real in a Senseless Sacrifice]] not unlike some of the Doctor's feats; in turn, he [[spoiler: prioritizes saving her from the grave as more important than reconciling with his people when he ''finally'' returns to Gallifrey]]. The result? [[spoiler: She ends up a functional immortal, traveling the universe with a TARDIS and companion of her own within the last moment of her original life, making her a Doctor in all but name]]. Clara haters were '''not happy'''.

* ''ShockTreatment'' (the disconnected sequel to ''TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'') parodies the only audience that would ever give it attention - Rocky Horror fans. The TV studio audience shouts in unison at what they're watching, seem hopelessly (and happily) glued to their seats, worship Brad and Janet's every move, and blindly follow the characters, even when they're all led into a mental institution. Subtly, they're also wearing costumes from Rocky Horror.

** In the episode "Squash and Stretch" the Titans decide to become ''more cartoonish'' in an attempt to [[MakesSenseInContext kill a squirrel]], and become Looney Tunes parodies. They then begin making remarks such as "The Teen Titans are way better as silly cartoons!" and "It feels good to not be weighed down by character development, yo!", further taunting older Teen Titans fans who lament the reboot's existence.

The episode that took the cake and ran with it, though, was [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail188.html SBEmail #188 "fan club"]], where it turns out that his loser brother [[TheEeyore Strong Sad]] formed an SB fanclub with Strong Mad and The Cheat called "the Deleteheads". He also mercilessly took a jab at {{Fan Fic}}s and {{Mary Sue}}s in the same episode.
