* ''Anime/KillLaKill'' has a massive one to all {{Recap Episode}}s by introducing episode 16 as the "RecapEpisode"... and zipping through the entire previous 15 episodes worth of plot in ''one minute.'' essentially giving a big, fat middle finger to all other Anime that have put the plot on hold for an entire episode to go over the plot details of the previous 13 or so episodes.

* In the Creator/VizMedia re-dub of ''Manga/SailorMoon'', in the 7th episode, while Umino is crossdressing, he at one point does an imitation of the Brooklyn accent given to Naru (or as she was called in 90s dub, "Molly") in the original Creator/DiC dub of ''Manga/SailorMoon''.

* In ''Manga/MariaHolic'', Mariya chastises Kanako for mistaking a cross necklace for a rosary, describes what an ''actual'' rosary is supposed to look like and be used for, and points out that they're not meant to be worn as jewelery -- i.e. a series of swipes at ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru''. The manga also takes potshots at series like ''GhostInTheShell'' and ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara''.

* The overarcing theme of ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico'' is that it's alright to enjoy anime, even bad ones, [[SeriousBusiness but don't take it seriously and let it run your life]]. Unfortunately, this often gets misconstrued as an attack against anime period.

* One of the many interpretations of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is that it's a big TakeThat on otaku culture.
** Played with in the End of Evangelion, with Shinji's DudeShesLikeInAComa moment which is something of a BigLippedAlligatorMoment, and aside from a moment or two in MindScrew hell, never comes up again, making it ripe for WildMassGuessing about whether this was planned or an AuthorTract.
