Added DiffLines:

* 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]].

In one of the ''Nyaruani'' shorts, [[OnlySaneMan Mahiro]] stops Nyarko from saying "VideoGame/LovePlus" by saying "Didn't I just recently tell you not to piss people off?", and in the OVA episode he prevents Cuuko from saying "LightNovel/AccelWorld" by [[SlapstickKnowsNoGender bopping her upside the head]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/WalterMelon'' episode parodying ''Film/JurassicPark'', the heroine suggests the park may have been sabotaged by a rival theme park. Not wanting to get sued, the John Hammond {{Expy}} cuts her off before she can name whatever one she was thinking of.

* Series/LazyTown ''Series/LazyTown'' is a no brainer cause of the "evil dude"'s gallery resembeling resembling the back of the Power Rangers Zeo.Chamber from ''Series/PowerRangersZeo''.



** In real life, Saban DID sue the guys who made LazyTown for being a copycat to the Power Chamber display cases & won. So as a result, the "evil dude" later got an upgraded disguse machine where his disguses are projected one at a time instead of being shown in tubes all at once. The works of it stayed the same.
