* Creator/GoNagai is responsible for one of the biggest take thats in the history of manga if not one of the biggest take thats in general. After PTA forced Shonen Jump to end his debutant series ''Shameless School'', Go Nagai finished the series by having the titular school attacked by the PTA; all of the main characters died fighting the evil forces of censorship.
** Not the only time Nagai fired back at criticism: upon being told to dial the contents of his works down because it was supposedly a negative influence on children, Go created ''The Abashiri Family'', which had more violent and overtly sexual content than anything he had done before.

* Earlier chapters of the ''Manga/SgtFrog'' manga feature swipes at numerous Japanese politicians.
** They also take swipes at the last US president and former Vice President Al Gore.
** In episode 19 of the English dub, Angol Mois, after watching the ratings on the Keronians' radio show drop at a supersonic rate, exclaims "We're losing more listeners than Music/AmyWinehouse!"

* The first episode of ''Nurse Witch Komugi R'' (a reboot of the original ''Anime/NurseWitchKomugi'' OAV from the 2000s) features a MonsterOfTheWeek in the form of a camera creature that turns people into other characters. It targets Komugi and says "[[http://8bitwalugi.tumblr.com/post/137061299598/yatterman-tatsunoko-you-made-yatterman-night I'll turn you into something embarassing]]", however it misses her and hits a cardboard cutout of the villains from ''Anime/{{Yatterman}}'' instead. It gets turned into an advertisement for ''Anime/YattermanNight'', the series made for the Time Bokan series' 40th anniversary. Especially strange since all three shows are made by Tatsunoko.

* Many fans interpreted ''Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam'' as a Take That by creator Yoshiyuki Tomino to Bandai/Sunrise and the ''{{Franchise/Gundam}}'' series as a whole. In reality, ''Victory Gundam'' being a FranchiseKiller is a [[GodNeverSaidThat false rumor]]; Tomino's real motivation was his frustration at the ExecutiveMeddling his projects were always subjected to (as was the case with ''V Gundam'' itself at the start, naturally).
** Another case in ''Gundam'' came up in ''Anime/GundamBuildFighters'', which was the first ''Gundam'' material to reference the extremely unpopular movie ''Film/GSaviour'' in nearly 14 years. Said reference consisted of the G-Saviour showing up in a battle and gets destroyed in a single blow less than ten seconds in.

* In the same vein Kagurazaka, a one-shot [[DittoFighter Ditto Dueler]] from ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' is meant to be a jab to the TCG players that try to win duels by "net-decking", copying a Championship-winning deck in the hopes of achieving a cheap, effortless victory.
** As another "take that", when copying one such high-powered deck against Sho, who is supposed to be one of the weaker characters, Sho beats him handily and admits he was inspired by how Judai beat the deck's original user. Which is pretty much how the TCG goes, once someone figures out how to break an overpowered deck, everyone follows suit and the overpowered deck becomes an underplayed deck.

* 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''.
