* ''WebComic/{{Sonichu}}'', just... ''Sonichu''. Half the reason the comic's become so controversial is that it's devolved into a vehicle to relentlessly bash anything its author doesn't like. Or anything that pisses the author off. Internet trolls have had a field day with this.

** It also had a joke about Red Mage's outrageously idiotic plan which included [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2009/07/04/episode-1148-nearly-every-contingency/ "the grossly suspect part"]] where Thief had to dodge ''explosions'' while he's ''in'' them. That's ''exactly'' how [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons D&D3]] Reflex Save works with Rogue ("Thief" in all previous editions) [[http://www.d20srd.org/srd/classes/rogue.htm#rogueEvasion Evasion]] ability: it allows to ''dodge completely unscathed'' being caught in any area effects with "Reflex for half" save, such as ''{{Fireballs}}'' and explosions proper (even [[http://www.d20srd.org/srd/spells/prismaticWall.htm some]] ''wall'' type effects).

** The ending of Brian Clevinger's Nuklear Age was meant to be a massive Take That at CerebusSyndrome.



** Well, this one is more of a TakeThat against people who link to us as opposed to forming their own opinions, as well as {{Unpleasable Fanbase}}s and the pure distilled awfulness of One More Day. It's hard to tell exactly how effective it is to "puppet" the opinions of a wiki which, after all, can be changed by anyone. [[note]] And in any case, he wasn't aiming it at this site, but someplace with the url tvtropes.'''com'''.[[/note]]

** Corey's personal BerserkButton appears to be people who don't think philosophy is a worthwhile field. There are a number of examples throughout the comics' run, but in particular, see [[http://existentialcomics.com/comic/190 this comic.]] Even more, also see TheRant beneath it. It appears Corey is...

Added DiffLines:

** Whenever Ayn Rand is featured in a comic, the afterword explanation can always be summed up as a subtle way of saying "her philosophy is obtuse and her books aren't very good." 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.

* [[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 Website/LiveJournal comment accusation against him.
