* [[Webcomic/SomethingPositive R.K. Milholland]] says "TakeThat, TVTropes!" in the first line of [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust02132009.shtml this]] ''Webcomic/SuperStupor'' comic. Apparently this was the result of someone parroting "[[BlackComedyRape Rape as Comedy]]" in a DudeNotFunny LiveJournal comment accusation against him.

* ''Webcomic/ExistentialComics'': The author can fairly be judged as not {{Creator/Socrates}}'s greatest fan, given that every appearance of his is as an annoying gadfly. While even his fans and Socrates himself would probably agree with that to some degree, this isn't shown as really being used in a meaningful or substantive way. Sartre is also here shown mostly using his "radical freedom" concept for an excuse to do inane things, and ignoring reservations others have at his advice.

** In one comic, he calls Sartre's account of "bad faith" in ''Being and Nothingness'' "the worst example in the history of philosophy", citing how poorly it illustrates his actual point, and how it seems like he's criticizing a waiter for properly doing his job while he writes books and drinks wine. In a similar vein, he loves to make fun of how incoherent Hegel's philosophy is, with every single appearance and reference to him having something to do with that.

** Nintendo's investors also get hit with these from time to time, like in [[http://consolers.webcomic.ws/comics/pl/592514 this page]].

* Half the point of ''Webcomic/{{Consolers}}'' is doing this towards various game companies and their actions. Konami, from 2015 and onwards, seem to be an especially popular target.
** For non-game company examples, there have been [[http://consolers.webcomic.ws/comics/pl/406849 a few]] [[http://consolers.webcomic.ws/comics/pl/667027 against]] game analyst Michael Pachter regarding his general opinions on Nintendo.

* The ''Webcomic/TalesOfTheQuestor'' spin-off ''Webcomic/QuentynQuinnSpaceRanger'' has been the vehicle for many odd Take Thats, including one against pirates (according to the artist, due to the fact that at the time that arc was being planned out, people were going ga-ga over the ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean''). Includes a very heavy-handed TakeThat aimed at ''Franchise/StarTrek'', starting from their [[http://www.rhjunior.com/QQSR/00015.html strange designs]] and stranger [[NoOSHACompliance idea of workplace safety]], and [[http://www.rhjunior.com/QQSR/00017.html proceeding]] to poke fun at PlanetOfHats.
