* Creator/SteveDitko created Hawk and Dove, and characterized Dove as a total wimp, to screw with his hippie fans. It backfired though, as Hawk and Dove was the point at which Ditko started to lose his fanbase.

* Music/{{mothy}}. Holy shit, Mothy. Just name ANY of his work that doesn't contain PlotTwist, we dare you. Any analysis tried on his work will be destroyed by the next product.

* An interesting example happened with Series/TheShield around Season 5's finale. Some spoilers leaked that said Ronnie would die and Lem would leave and go to Mexico. These spoilers mentioned a lot of things that came through in the episode, but were totally wrong about the ending. That's because the creators themselves put those spoilers out.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'' famously had the episode "Fire Ant", which was a special half hour long episode (in a show where most episodes are about 11-15 minutes). Except that only the first 15 minutes are an actual episode. The last half of the show is just Space Ghost silently following an ant ''for ten minutes''. It's deliberately made to be as slow, tedious, and annoying as possible. There's one last joke at the end, if you're willing to sit through the damn thing.

A shorter version was later made to fit within the regular timeslot that cuts down the scene.

* Creator/StanLee specifically created ''ComicBook/IronMan'' as a conservative, capitalist superhero to mess with Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}}'s hippie fans. Tellingly, though, he only became really interesting when his life became a train-wreck or when (mostly through the influence of Robert Downey Jr.'s portrayal), he gained a sense of humor.
** Lee has said he made Iron Man the kind of character the hippie audience would utterly despise at first blush, but then make him so sympathetic and interesting that they would like him in spite of completely disagreeing with his politics and lifestyle.

* [=Cybersp0nge=] of ''Webcomic/NSFWComix'' got tired of fan requests to draw [[MsFanservice Becky]] nude, so he finally did so - and gave her a penis. When it turned out that the fans actually ''liked'' that, he immediately had her get rid of it. And then he wrote a short arc in which he flip-flopped on whether she did or not - both surgery and AllJustADream were involved. He finally decided on [[spoiler:yes, she still has one.]]

* The Beatles' deliberately nonsensical "I am the Walrus" was inspired by a letter John Lennon received about how his former high school were analyzing the lyrics to Beatles' songs in the classroom.

** The Renho arc helped introduce Sorachi's trolling style to anime viewers. It started off with a tear-jerking scene of Elizabeth leaving his friends behind, with a longer credit song to mark it as a saga, making it greatly resemble the Four diva arc.[[spoiler:.. Until the post credit scene, which shows that the Elizabeth that left is only a temp. Cue fans asking the Gorilla to return their tears.]]

** Same goes with Serena's crush for Ash. Many fans expected this to go in an unexpected route, they weren't expecting ''Serena to actually kiss Ash''. [[spoiler:The catch? While there's leadup to it that shows she's doing it, the actual kiss isn't even shown on screen! Even though Ash is shocked as a result...the kiss was still done right as she was leaving for Hoenn, either never to be seen again or not to be seen again for a long time. [[StatusQuoIsGod Status Quo really is their God]].]]

*** This has actually been a thing since as early as "Let's Get Serious", where the writers will make entire episodes directed to criticisms of the show such as "The Fourth Wall", "Finally a Lesson", and "Squash and Stretch". There's even an episode, "The Cape", that dubs over the first episode of the original WesternAnimation/TeenTitans, with the Go! Titans proclaiming it's "just as good as they remembered". Once again, review the RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement.
