* ''Fanfic/AManOfIron'': When Margaery Tyrell is introduced in the second book, Theon notes that the "duckface" she makes when upset is very unflattering. This is a jab at a notorious acting quirk of Creator/NatalieDormer's that the author can't stand.

** Grodus levels an unsubtle one directed at ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' by completely disagreeing with its opinion that a "children's card game" being SeriousBusiness is, by villain standards, a bad thing.
** Grodus levels yet another take that against fans who feel the heroes cheat just as much as the villains do by pointing out that his associates got their cards from evil sorcerers working from Graz'zt. In other words, what the author feels is exactly what characters like Dartz, Saiou, and the like did with their powerful cards.

* ''Fanfic/InTheService'' is itself a subtle but fairly long TakeThat against the tendency of LyricalNanoha fanfiction to make the Time-Space Administrative Bureau even more MildlyMilitary than it actually is in canon, or to outright forget it exists in favor of AU or semi-AU [=NanoFate=] stories. It also delivers a few more direct ones.

* ''Yu-Gi-OH: Legacy of the Sorcerer Kings'' treated atheists as AlwayChaoticEvil, including the BigBad who was only damned because he refused to believe in higher powers.

** There's also a big one to ''Literature/TheSalvationWar''. A war is fought between [[spoiler:the Tau Empire and their allies]] against the Chaos Realm of the Terran Hells. The allies are convinced the war will be a cakewalk as they are armed with modern tanks and energy weapons while the Daemons are armed with spears, bows, axes and other Iron-age weapons. [[RockBeatsLaser They are wrong in that assumption]].

* ''FanFic/YuGiOhTheThousandYearDoor'' and its ''[[TheRemake Redux]]'' have a few:
** The original version had Wanda Underwood, who was a fanmade sister to Weevil Underwood. The majority of her dialogue involved trashing the character, and every single conversation she was involved in ultimately led to Weevil being bashed.
** Chico considers the "Palace of Heart" card to be a bad remake of ''VideoGame/Splatterhouse''. He is embarrassed after saying that since the game had a remake that flopped.

* In one installment of the ''Fanfic/SkyholdAcademyYearbook'' series, [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Dorian]] makes a crack about "Fifty Shades of whatever ghastly monstrosity against literature that thing was." Varric responds by growling and declaring, "We do not speak of ''that''."

* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12266465/3/Don-t-Be-a-Dobby-Downer chapter 3 of Don't Be a Dobby Downer]] takes a jab at evil!Dumbledore who wants things done his way. The dialogue below takes place after Harry transfers to Beauxbatons in his 2nd year:
-->Severus: (to Dumbledore) I'm surprised you aren't panicking.
-->Dumbledore: Sometimes I think neither of you give me nearly enough credit, he's {Harry} a boy and learned about our world, Beauxbatons is a fine institution, and he will be safe there, Madame Maxine is a careful Headmistress, they in fact have a better safety record than Hogwarts herself.
