Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony''
** The series takes a couple of jabs at ''WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft''. In the comment section below "The Penny and Clyde Show", Wacarb clarifies that he does it out of professional rivalry rather than actual ill will. "If you're wondering what I feel about [=FiW=], they are ok, I only really make fun of them because they are the most popular competition."
*** In "One Joke To Rule Them All", Twilight, as a "new joke", takes up saying "Talk about eye candy!" at random occasions. Which nobody finds funny.
*** "I stole all these jokes from Friendship Is Witchcraft. And by that I mean there are no jokes this episode". The episode in question indeed contains no jokes (see OutOfGenreExperience).
*** "Pega, Please" has one that's either much more subtle or just a coincidence. Twilight says that the dragon is "dra''gone''", which Spike finds [[IncrediblyLamePun incredibly lame]]. ("Dragone Baby Gone" is the title of another ''Friendship is Witchcraft'' episode.)
** In "Pega Please!" Pinkie encourages Fluttershy to think of "that famous basketball player" to help her jump across the ravine.
-->'''Fluttershy:''' Shaquille O'Neal!\\
'''Pinkie Pie:''' No, not that one!\\
'''Twilight:''' Never, ever, that one, Fluttershy.
** In "Little Miss Montage", DJ Scratch Vinyl 3-Pones plays "Hamster Dance", which prompts Hoity Toity to comment, "Oh, now that's just poor taste in music. Still better than {{dubstep}}, though."
** In "The Best Episode Ever":
-->'''Spike, as narrator:''' And so they all left, with nothing at all being achieved. Making the meeting about as effective as the United Nations.\\
'''[[SelfDeprecation LOL LOL CLASSY POLITICAL HUMOR LOL LOL]]'''
** "Faith to Faith" has a jab at how ReferenceOverdosed ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' can be.
-->'''Pinkie Pie:''' Time to make Little Kuriboh proud! "[[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Shut up and take my money!]]" \\
''[The crowd has a good laugh at this.]''\\
'''Random pony:''' Your low standards of humor are why no one tries to make legitimate comedy anymore!
** In "The Longest Engagement", Fluttershy introduces a bird she befriended, a bird who sings with the voice of Music/NickiMinaj.
-->'''Twilight:''' For the love of Celestia, make it stop!\\
'''Fluttershy:''' Sorry. Some birds just ain't cut out for singing.
** Combined with SelfDeprecatingHumor, at Shining Armor and Princess Cadance's wedding Celestia notes that:
-->'''Celestia:''' Marriages are like abridged series. They're usually offensive and don't last very long.
** In the video description for "UFP sings Take On Me", wacarb writes "I'm better at butchering the classics than George Lucas."
** In a few season 3 episodes, Wacarb's treatment of the source material gets more bluntly negative than usual. His video description for "Join the Club" reads, "Hey, at least things couldn't get worse. I'm not kidding this time, this is the actual pits." In "Wolfenspike 3D", Twilight attributes a specific plot hole to laziness, and Applejack replies, "I frickin' hate season 3." And in "Discord and Me", Celestia defends a plot hole by saying "It's season 3, Twilight, try not to think too much about it. The writers certainly didn't!"
** The video description for "Ponyville Noire" reads "A video of still images, monotone voice work and slowly decreasing quality of humor? What is this, [[WebVideo/MyLittlePonyTheMentallyAdvancedSeries the Mentally Advanced Series]]?"
** In "Saturday Morning Ponies", the video description reads "Some of the worst synth music you'll ever hear. Still better than [[WebVideo/ScootertrixTheAbridged Scootatrix]] at least."
** In "On Your Mark", Sweetie Belle says "Yeah, Applebloom, scooter trick sucks". This was a response to a "Take That!" from Scootertrix.
** The entire Season 4 Finale is essentially a long series of affectionate "Take That!"s between Wacarb and Jack Getchman (the creator of ''WebVideo/ScootertrixTheAbridged'', who voices Tirek in [=UFP=]), and, naturally, a ''lot'' of SelfDeprecation.

** ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' also delivers a well-deserved TakeThat to [[JerkAss people who flag YouTube videos]], as happened to the series - "I'm flagging Website/YouTube videos [[CompensatingForSomething to compensate for the fact that I have a very small penis!"]]

** The third Season Zero Abridged episode is essentially one long TakeThat at the numerous times Website/YouTube took LK down for copyright violations.

* The ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' video for [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/108-Webcomics July 2nd, 2008]] is one enormous TakeThat at webcomics in general but ''Webcomic/CtrlAltDel'' in particular. Which seems sort of redundant considering he's already done a review of it.

* The LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} have had many a TakeThat over the years, often targeting films they dislike. One of their more blatant ones, however, would be in their ''[[Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries Shadow Of Israphel]] Animated'' videos, specifically [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYjUrX6macY&channel=BlueXephos this one]], in which Israphel tries bypassing LetsPlay/LewisBrindley and LetsPlay/SimonLane, in this case acting as guards for [[VideoGame/PapersPlease Arstotzka]]. After initially being rejected for not having a matching passport, he tries disguising himself as WebVideo/GameChap [[note]]who was thrown out of the Yogscast for rude behaviour and has since been bashed many times for what the group perceives to be sexist content[[/note]]. He ''immediately'' gets laughed at and denied entry for being "a creepy bastard". It is worth noting in this case that while the Yogscast did not design the animation for the sketch (a fan did that, with [[LetsPlay/HatFilms Trott and Ross]] adding their own dialogue later), they did upload it on their channel, thus approving it.

** Abridged Series do this all the time, even the more obscure ones. Hbi2k and Khenpoe actually justify the existence of their ''WebVideo/{{Berserk|Abridged}}'' and ''Bleach'' series by saying they were tired of watching crappy parodies; Bennett The Sage called ''Code Geass'' a pussy abridged series; and Megami33 proclaimed [[WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged her series]] the only good one on Website/YouTube.

* ''WebVideo/TheHappyVideoGameNerd'': In the stinger to his ''Final Fantasy Mystic Quest'' video, he deliberately pronounces "NES" as both "Enn-ee-ess" and "Ness" just to "piss everyone off".

** And one to the C&D of ''VideoGame/MyLittlePonyFightingIsMagic'' via a ParodyCommercial for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation4. In the commercial, Applejack and Twilight play the game on an XboxOne. The console then reports it for copyright, causing the library to explode.
