* 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.

* ''Webcomic/ExistentialComics'': The author can fairly be judged as not 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.

** Perhaps Penny Arcade's most famous TakeThat was aimed at Jack Thompson, who offered $10,000 donated to charity if anyone who would follow his specifications for an over-the-top violent video game targeting the video game industry itself. [[ImOK Someone did.]] Thompson reneged on his offer and Penny Arcade stepped up to the plate, donating the $10,000 to the ''Entertainment Software Association Foundation'' charity in Thompson's name. Was accompanied by a short but sweet blog post generally seen as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for the comic and its creators:

** Several ''Penny Arcade'' strips make Take Thats at bad video games. One of the recurring Take Thats in earlier strips were directed towards John Romero, creator of the widely-panned ''VideoGame/{{Daikatana}}''. Earlier strips also made fun of the PS2's launch (one E3-related strip even showed Gabe urinating on PS2 equipment), but around the 2001 mark, they started to be more kind toward the console.

** Ladies and gentleman, behold what happened when ''Funny Junk'' tried to demand $20,000 in damages from The Oatmeal after he called them out for [[http://theoatmeal.com/blog/funnyjunk uploading his comics without permission.]] As payback he threatened to raise the money, mail photos of it to Funny Junk along with a [[YourMom nasty drawing of the site owner's mother]], and then split the money to donate to the National Wildlife Federation and the American Cancer Society. [[http://theoatmeal.com/blog/charity_money He raised over $200,000 and remained true to his word]].
