** "Bender's Game" feature several: First is Creator/GeorgeTakei's head ramming a ship into one driven by [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Scott Bakula]] and tells him "Thanks for [[DarthWiki/RuinedFOREVER ruining]] [[Franchise/StarTrek the franchise]]!". Second, there's the gratuitous take that to Creator/RobinWilliams when they run into "Series/{{Mork|AndMindy}}s" and kill them while telling them [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny they're not funny]] and need to shut up. Third, there's when they reach the kingdom of "Wipe Castle", where you can eat lots of burgers without gaining weight [[ArtisticLicenseBiology because they give you diarrhoea]].

* Bruce Timm's take on Harley Quinn in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueGodsAndMonsters Chronicles'' spun out of his dislike for some of the more {{Stripperific}}, DarkerAndEdgier takes on the character in the recent years. His response was to create the most Stripperific design imaginable (modeled after her ComicBook/{{New 52}} ''Comicbook/SuicideSquad'' look), and then make her into a horrifying [[WouldHurtAChild child-killer]] [[spoiler: who ends up getting killed horribly by Batman at the end]]. FanDisservice indeed.

* A minor character in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' is a warmongering Senator named "Halle Burtoni." Her name appears to be a nod to the Halliburton Corporation, an American oil company that was strongly criticized for [[WarForFunAndProfit profiteering]] off of UsefulNotes/TheWarOnTerror.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'' takes shots at the various new tech companies and billionaires that have sprung up in the late 2000s and 2010s that have made money through creating buzz about their products and generating investments (e.g. Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk) through new character Mark Beaks. Beaks is introduced as the founder and CEO of a company who's on his way to making a billion, just through the hype and buzz generated by a product that turns out to literally be {{Vaporware}} [[spoiler:(it's literally nothing)]].

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' fires one at the {{Media Watchdog}}s and MoralGuardians in ''Interdimensional Cable 2: Tempting Fate'' when Morty snaps at Summer for complaining about the violence in the tv shows:
--> '''Morty:''' Well, summer, maybe people that create things aren't concerned with your delicate sensibilities, you know? Maybe the species that communicate with each other through the filter of your comfort are less evolved than the ones that just communicate! Maybe your problems are your own to deal with, and maybe the public giving a shit about your feelings is a one-way ticket to extinction!
--> '''Rick:''' Geez, Morty. I take it Cathrine Hefflefinger hasn't texted you back yet.

** In another episode, Buster creates a self-aggrandizing cartoon based around his own imaginary adventures. Describing the premise to his friends, Arthur notes that the show is supposed to be "edutainment," which causes everyone to recoil in disgust.

** "Saturday Morning Fun Pit" is one massive Take That to 70s and 80s cartoons by emphasizing all the aspects of them that most people forget about due to NostalgiaFilter such as Creator/HannaBarbera's decline in quality, mediocre writing and animation, shameless [[MerchandiseDriven merchandising]], and excessive {{Bowlderisation}} and censorship by MoralGuardians for violence and lack of educational value.
