* Cranky Kong in the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' series does this all the time. His end quote in the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' manual translates to 'buy the strategy or just get better at the game', and his comments in the games themselves come down to 'stop dying and you won't have to buy all these expensive items'. Like ''Crash into too many things, and even this stuff won't save you''. Or ''Why are you falling into holes anyway?'' And that's not even getting into what he said when he took over Nintendo of America's shitter account.. ''Old enough to remember when falling in a pit in a platformer was called “lack of skill” and not “cheap.”''

* In ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'' Barclay acts like a gushing fanboy to Zephram Cochrane while Geordi and especially Riker seem embarrassed by this.

* The story of ''Urban Legend In Limbo'' could be seen as one for the part of the ''TouhouProject'' fanbase that sees Gensokyo as a utopia and want to live there and make friends with everyone (a very prevalent attitude, given the sheer number of "Gappy Stu" fanfics centered on obvious self-inserts who somehow end up in Gensokyo). Oh, you want to go to Gensokyo and have fun there, eh? Well, so did a young [[PsychicPowers psychic]] named Sumireko. In the process, she caused an incident, damaged the Barrier, angered absolutely everyone, and got brutally beaten by a bunch of the residents until she was left traumatized and terrified to the point of nearly '''destroying''' Gensokyo out of desperation. Oh, and she was also an UnwittingPawn of [[spoiler:the Lunarians, and helped set up an invasion.]] The takeaway is clear: [[EvilIsNotAToy Gensokyo is not your playground]], and if you tamper with it for your personal amusement, '''the locals can and will destroy you'''.

Admittedly, Sumireko does eventually start making friends in Gensokyo, but not before getting a harsh warning that [[NotSoHarmless regardless of what they may look like, these cute girls are powerful youkai, and youkai like to attack humans]].

* ''Anime/ReCreators'' uses it for satire to search for "deep meaning" in the anime, in the scene, when Alisteria abducts her creator and asks him what messages and meaning is borne by his manga, whose main character is Alisteria. When he can not answer, she realizes that the fans themselves have endowed his works with the meaning that Sota talked about in the episode earlier.

to:

* DownerEnding of ''Anime/SpaceRunawayIdeon'' can be viewed as a matter of fact as a very malicious mockery of the ideological optimism of MechaGenre's popular works, including a popular then story about how people enter the war with the aliens, but ultimately pacifism and PowerOfLove help end the war and all the differences. The message becomes even more symbolic, if you remember that the author of Ideon are Tomino, the person who created Gundam and thereby made the story that was ridiculed the most popular and basic for many subsequent works.

There is no need to say how silly and pathetic this point is being made by Sota and his speech from the previous episode, whom we should be treated as AudienceSurrogate.]]

* ''Series/DearWhitePeople'': Quite a few exchanges, particularly Sam's rants on her "Dear White People" radio show, can and are most probably meant to directly address certain [[HateDumb audience members]] of the series as well as those who [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch did not bother watching]] because of the title:
--> '''Sam:''' ''Dear white people... wow. Y'all really trying it. I get that being reduced to a race-based generalization is a new and devastating experience for some of you, but here's the difference. My jokes don't incarcerate your youth at alarming rates or make it unsafe for you to walk around your own neighborhoods. But yours do. When you mock or belittle us, you enforce an existing system. Cops everywhere staring down the barrel of a gun at a black man don't see a human being. They see a caricature... a thug... a nigger.''
