** Tobacco and alcohol companies, particularly in the early years of the magazine. Gaines had something of a BerserkButton when it came to smoking, particularly underage smoking. This was during the early Sixties, when alcohol and cigarettes were treated much more casually then today.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Pokeharmony (a Pokemon/EHarmony parody) depicts a female Hitmonchan pairing up with a male Machamp. Anyone who knows their Pokemon would know that it should be the other way around--Machamp has a 25% chance of being female, but Hitmonchan is an exclusively male OneGenderRace.

* TheyJustDidntCare:
** As expected for a parody of ''Series/{{The Office|US}}'', "The Clawfice" ends with a ThatsWhatSheSaid joke. However, it doesn't contain a DoubleEntendre.
-->Oh my God, it's Magneto!
** The [=DVDs=] don't have 16X9 enhancement.

Added DiffLines:

* GeniusBonus: While most characters in parodies are given a name that sounds a bit like their actual name, in the ''Film/DirtyHarry'' parody, the Scorpio Killer is named [[http://www.psychicguild.com/horoscopes_zodiac.php?sign=Libra Libra]]. For those who know their astrology, that's the ''last'' astrological sign one would associate with the character.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Much like most of Cartoon Network's past and present offerings, this show is packed to the brim with a lot of ParentalBonus and GettingCrapPastTheRadar moments that confirm that Cartoon Network's censors are either really bad at their job or this is all a part of CartoonNetwork's plan for more risque programming outside of Creator/AdultSwim.

* UncannyValley: Some of the characters that are animated in CGI can come across as this.

* CanonSue: The Grey Spy in ''Spy vs. Spy'' would always win whenever she appeared. In those strips, the Black and White Spies would [[FemmeFatale fall in love with her]], and out of respect for women, she had to beat both of them, but eventually, Prohias himself thought the concept was falling into this Trope, and she was PutOnABus. (She did appear later after other artists took over the strip.)



* GodModeSue: Fantabulaman.



** "[[StarWars I got the moves like Jabba,]] [[MaroonFive I like to move like Jabba,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_93QVNSCmg I want to moooooooooOOOOOVE, like Jabba!]]
** "''[[Music/CarlyRaeJepsen Your memory's been wiped]], [[Film/TotalRecall2012 Total Recall me Baby!]]''"

* ShallowParody: Most of the time this is averted (See Above) Manga/{{Naru|to}}[[BeverlyHills90210 210]] is an example. The writers apparently only saw the first three episodes of ''Naruto''. "Why do all these ''Naruto'' fights happen off-screen?" The relationship between the Genin, which is similar to a group of high school students' interacting, is also skimmed over.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: The CGI, whenever it's used. This appears to be deliberate though.

** ''Beauty Tips with Megan Fox''. And not just the scene where [[spoiler: Megan Fox [[Film/{{Terminator}} turns out to be a cyborg]] ]], but her overall appearance makes her look like she crawled from the deepest trenches of the UncannyValley. The photo cut-out head and cartoon lips and eyebrows look really bizarre.
