* ''VideoGame/ThimbleweedPark'', developed by the minds behind ''VideoGame/ManiacMansion'', worked in plenty of jabs both at [[TakeThatUs themselves]], but ''especially'' at Sierra Online games, emphasizing that they felt their design philosophy was much better. A patch [[AuthorsSavingThrow cut down on this, after people started to get annoyed]].

* Take one look at the prices for refreshments in the Hollywood stage of ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}''. One big TakeThat to movie theatres (who massively overcharge for concessions) as well as bottling companies who charge a ''lot'' for water.

* Take one look at The menu for the prices for refreshments in the Hollywood stage level of ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}''. One big TakeThat to ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'' depict surprisingly high prices for the items (in the triple digits), with "Bottled water" being the most expensive. A jab at movie theatres (who massively overcharge for concessions) as well as their concession prices and bottling companies who charge a ''lot'' for water.bottled water prices.

* IRL example: Microsoft's various take that moments against the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3, such as crashing a [=PS3=] launch party by bringing a boat with a gigantic UsefulNotes/XBox360 banner into the background as cameras were rolling, or offering chairs for the patient people in lines outside stores waiting for their [=PS3=] -- the backs of the chairs contained a seemingly innocent URL which led to a site where Microsoft pretty much took the piss out of 360 having been on the markets for ages before [=PS3=] and how all that waiting must have been tiresome.

** Sega took this to such a length that Nintendo actually had to fire back, something they rarely did before and have almost never done since; including the below mentioned ''Yoshi's Island'' and ''Donkey Kong Country 2'' gags, they actually went as far as to take out a double page ad/WallOfText explaining how the Genesis and SNES were all but identical in most respects (and that the SNES was actually superior in some ways, namely graphics and, especially, sound). As WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd points out, ''every aspect'' of the SNES was more technologically advanced then the Genesis apart from its processor, which Sega used in their adverts as "Blast Processing" to try and make the Genesis look better. Even then, all that really meant was that the Genesis could display a few more sprites on-screen at a time without slowdown.

* Japan and Korea, historically, haven't exactly been the best of buddies. That said [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV a]] [[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive number]] [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} of]] practitioners of the Korean martial art of Tae Kwon Do in Japanese fighting games are either ChaoticNeutral {{Jerkass}}es or outright evil. There's really only [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters one]] well known aversion (and, even then, [[WrongGenreSavvy he has his occasional flaw]]).

* In ''FreddyPharkasFrontierPharmacist'', a "lost and out-of-place" [[VideoGame/KingsQuestV Cedric the Owl]] is eaten by vultures. This TakeThat is more directed towards the character than the ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'' series, which was also made by Creator/{{Sierra}} and is referenced several other times in ''Freddy Pharkas''; Cedric was ''hated'' by many players for his high-pitched, whiny voice and general uselessness.
