-->''The Tazmanian Devil is a real animal, not a copyright of a certain large corporation with lots of legal muscle. I can therefore mention it by name in this game. Unfortunately, if I were to describe a real-life Tazmanian Devil, you'd only be disappointed--they don't look like much. So, I won't describe the slavering beast before you. And if you assume that it has a boxy body attached to short thin legs, two large maniacal eyes set above a wide, drooling, sharp-fanged mouth, and brown fur all over, then YOU'RE violating copyright, not me.''

* ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW had an [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Owlbear]] appear, Luna briefly considering making it her pet before deciding that might be legally problematic. Ironically enough Luna was mistaken on that point, Hasbro own both properties and many other D&D monsters appear throughout the series.

** They actually took this to the point where it verged on parody in one scene: Konata and her dad were talking about Gundam... while avoiding any names, images blurred, and ''censor bars over their eyes''.
** Another episode censors ''LightNovel/CodeGeass'' and Lelouch's name. Ironically, Bandai would later get the rights to license both ''Code Geass'' and ''Lucky Star''.
** Also, the ImageSong "Yuuchou Sentai Dararenjaa" cut short a reference to ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz''. Also ironically, Bandai has the license to produce ''Franchise/KamenRider'' merchandise.

** Also, they referenced ''Dragon Quest V'' like above. "A childhood friend? Or a rich lady? One has lots of money... and the ability to cast Boho_mi and I___zun." (Bohoimi=Midheal and Ionazun=Kaboom)
* The ''HyperDolls'' manga has this when the GratuitousEnglish naming scheme for the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters Of The Week]] runs into an [[Franchise/{{Spider Man}} arachnid]] creature.
* Variations would occasionally be lampshaded by Kawachi in ''Manga/YakitateJapan''.
* Happens every five minutes in ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler''; Every single trademarked name is bleeped out, which leads to some pretty bleep-heavy sentences where {{otaku}} Nagi is involved.
** A particularly funny example shows up when Hayate is about to use a sword technique whose name starts with "[[Manga/RurouniKenshin Hiten-]]". His opponent cuts him off, saying they can't risk that kind of reference, [[NoFourthWall even with bleeps]].
** In the manga, this is even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in the one instance it was actively avoided - when the {{Sega}} game ''Mushiking'' was mentioned without editing, one character wondered aloud about whether it should be. It was pointed out that they got permission to use it, and thus [[ProductPlacement needed to repeat the game's name as much as possible]].
