** It is also very hard to see the proclamation of General Lukin, one of the villains of the ''Forever Red'', that he's going to "Make Russia Great Again", something shown to be a vainglorious, foolish, and downright insane ambition, as anything other than a very intentional jab at a certain President of the United States.

** [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/249531/fall-of-starfleet-rebirth-of-friendship This fanfic]], in turn, is a big one to the fic in general.
* In FanFic/PrinceStaghornsKnownWorld, [[https://www.fimfiction.net/group/199698/the-known-world/thread/271866/locations-countries-if-you-can-call-this-useless-jag-of-land-one-tricornucopia the Kingdom of Tricornucopia]], home of the amphibious tricorns, is one to FanFic/MyLittleUnicorn itself. Tricornucopia’s immortal Grand Ruler Celesto styles himself as a living god and “rightful master of all things under heaven”, ruling with absolute power over a country that presents itself as the greatest of nations, defended by a grandiose Star Fleet. In reality, Tricornucopia’s an isolationist North Korea-esque dictatorship centered on Celesto’s cult of personality, the country itself a useless jag of swampland on the coast of the Badlands, home to nothing of any interest (not even the weird fauna found everywhere else in the world) and with no imports or exports. Celesto is a coward and a bully, and both he and his country are complete non-entities in world politics (although Equestria maintains an embassy to help oppressed Tricornucopians flee their country), and Star Fleet is just Celesto’s most blindly loyal and ruthless soldiers. To add insult to injury, tricorns as a species are descending into nonsapience.

** The Clair Interlude has a potshot aimed at LightNovel/PocketMonstersTheAnimation, specifically at the idea of three losses in a row leading to a gym closing down. The Resetverse itself lacks this provision (too many losses are bad, but it takes a lot more than three in a row and is not unsympathetic to scenarios that affect performance), and when Clair jokingly suggests that the three losses rule is in place one of her uncle snaps, saying they "don't live in some silly universe where three straight losses would lose the family gym".

* ''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.

thing. [[BondVillainStupidity This is despite the fact that many villains and enemy mooks woudn't need to play a usually luck-based game]] to take out the heroes due to their power, particularly when they [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim don't need them alive anymore]].

This is despite said fans' theories claiming the protagonists stack their decks and rig their draws in their favor, which itself would be cheating.

* ''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.
