----

* After doing a series of ''Franchise/StarWars'' parodies, ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'' did [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/494.html this strip]].
** "Oh, and by the way, '[[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1458.html xkcq]]' is worth 8 more points than 'Webcomic/{{xkcd}}' in Scrabble, or a whopping 30 more if both are played optimally on a triple word score. Nyahhh."
* Antimony from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' has been compared a few times to [[Literature/HarryPotter that other orphan with strange powers who attends a strange boarding school]]. Tom Siddell is too much of a gentleman to make fun of another author, so guest comic author [[http://www.afterstrife.com/ Ali Graham]] [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=297 did it for him.]]
** Tom Siddell reserves his [[DeadpanSnarker snark]] for ''the Internet''. See [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=396 this page]] and the explanatory note below.
** [[http://images.wikia.com/gunnerkrigg/images//9/9d/437alt.jpg This]] alternative strip is a TakeThat at people who complained that the flashback wasn't made obvious enough.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0344.html once]] poked fun at ''{{Eberron}}'', for that ''DungeonsAndDragons'' setting's magical trains. It should come as no surprise, as the author's own proposed setting won second place in WizardsOfTheCoast's setting contest -- which Eberron won.
** Rich Burlew and Keith Baker seem to have what could be described as a [[http://www.bossythecow.com/genconphoto5.htm friendly rivalry]], so this is probably more of a ShoutOut, especially considering that Baker himself got a cameo in the second ''[[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick]]'' prequel book, "Start of Darkness".
*** See also [[http://www.giantitp.com/articles/gk7uKJeF296jRcx1NJw.html this article]] by Baker, on Burlew's website.
** The swipes at Harry Potter taken in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0253.html this strip]], on the other hand, are somewhat less friendly. In his commentary in the compilation book, he took a parting shot at the people who sent him hate mail over it: "...hey! Harry Potter fans who can't take a joke! I have a spell for you: ''[[CanisLatinicus developus sensus humorous]]!''"
*** In that same commentary, Burlew wrote that he likes the ''Harry Potter'' movies, and he makes fun of stuff he likes -see ''D&D'' and ''The Lord of the Rings''.
** And as for [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0258.html Celine Dion]], well, suffice to say EvenEvilHasStandards.
** [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0539.html Strip 539]] has an averted Take That at FoxNews.
*** As in, [[VisualPun news provided by a (non-anthropomorphic) fox.]]
** The few digs taken at VideoGames in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0619.html 619]] are more or less neutral on the nasty-humorous axis. Though the Bistro is named "[[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Blizzard's]] Restorant".
** The last three panels of [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0623.html 623]] can be seen as a TakeThat to the more obsessed readers.
** Much of [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0560.html comic 560]] and the first panel of [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0561.html 561]] reference Series/{{Lost}}. 561 is where it shifts from gentle poke to Take That.
** Burlew did a couple of minor ones at the fandom of [[TheBrute Thog]]. The MisaimedFandom was commented on InUniverse by Tarquin, an evil dictator has put Thog into an endless series of GladiatorGames and [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0788.html marvels at how the fans love Thog]] no matter how many horrible things he does or how many people he kills. [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0796.html A few comics later]] Thog kicks his opponent's sword into the stands, where it beheads a random Thog fan. No one in the crowd seems to notice or care.
* The webtoon ''Series/BonusStage'' is full of of Take Thats, roughly on par with ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', but its creator Matt Wilson ''really'' doesn't like his fanbase: he has levelled several Take Thats against Bonus Stage FanFiction, FanDumb and the fan wiki.
* ''PennyArcade'' took a swipe at ''CtrlAltDel'' with the side character L.H. Franzibald, a self-obsessed litigious pseudo-intellectual who writes books based on ideas plagiarised from Tycho. He talks in a slimy, [[WallsOfText needlessly wordy manner]], often explaining the joke of a strip in the last panel, or indulging in acts of pointless violence -- once, a comic with him in even imitated the [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/05/24.jpg four-panel format]] of ''CAD''. He wears a large pair of B-shaped sunglasses and his mouth is always only slightly open to give him the distinctive B^U look. To ''PennyArcade'''s credit, it's used as self-deprecating humour, too -- according to the lore, the accusations of plagiarism are very tenuous, and Tycho's resentment of Franzibald is repeatedly shown to be pointless since [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2007/04/11 Franzibald is still very successful]].
** ''VGCats'' also took a shot at ''CtrlAltDel'' for [[http://vgcats.com/cadaprilfools/ April Fool's Day 2008]].
** Jeffrey Rowland gave Buckley a kick in the pants with [[http://overcompensating.com/posts/20080804.html this]] ''{{Overcompensating}}'' comic.
** In fact [[{{Hatedom}} a lot of people have]], and for the sake of not turning this article into one, long [=CAD=] rant, we won't be posting any more.
** Not to mention the MemeticMutation that sprung up in the wake of his miscarriage storyline of people and other webcomic artists inserting the last panel where appropriate for maximum funnies. That was a small industry of {{Take That}}s.
** 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.
* A lot of ''UserFriendly'' involves attacks on Microsoft.
* [[http://www.adventurers-comic.com/d/0030.html This]] ''Webcomic/{{Adventurers}}!'' strip is a TakeThat at PC games in general and the notoriously buggy PC port of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' in particular.
** Then again, pretty much the entire comic is an AffectionateParody of games like ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' and their various clichés, so pinpointing one strip seems to miss the big picture.
* In ''TheKAMics'' [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/The_KAMics/4822963/ this comic]] gives the doomed guard the same name as another cartoonist who had done a comic trashing other comics characters & authors.
* After the ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' comic, ''Dark Legacy Comics'', had been on a storyline about {{NPC}}s overthrowing {{PC}}s for several weeks, the author got enough of forum-goers complaining about the unrealism of such a concept and did [[http://darklegacycomics.com/147.html this strip]].
** [[http://www.pvponline.com/2008/03/21/yet-another-letdown/ This]] ''PvP'' strip was similarly levelled at people who complained about the then-current StoryArc. Specifically, the strip was a response to [[http://www.the-whiteboard.com/autowb905.html this]] earlier TakeThat from the webcomic ''Webcomic/TheWhiteboard'' regarding his disappointment in the wasted potential of that StoryArc.
* ''{{Minus}}'' had a fairly gentle [[http://www.kiwisbybeat.com/minus13.html Take That]] against most of the criticisms you'd expect to hear aimed at the idea of a comic about someone with infinite power. For extra points, imagine it as a Comicbook/{{Superman}} comic.
* ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'', when not taking shots at Walky's own past exploits, takes the occasional swipe at [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20070416.html certain]] [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20070711.html newspaper comics]], and lots of jabs at the worst aspects of ''{{Transformers}}'' fandom and [[FanDumb fandom in general]]. And, sometimes, he manages to [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20071119.html combine the two]].
** and recently another [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20090219.html webcomic]]
** And another ''Transformers'' [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20090316.html strip here.]]
** And this [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20091103.html takes a shot at Macs, with the help of Transformers.]]
** Honestly, it would take up an entire page catalouging the number of times Shortpacked did a Take That against the worst parts of Transformers fandom.
** And obligatory kicking a [[Literature/{{Twilight}} dead, but sparkling horse]]: [[http://www.shortpacked.com/2008/comic/book-8/02-autumn/mummyonahorse/ Mummyonahorse!]] Did you know that the Mummies "shroud their glittering skin with flowing cloth to disguise themselves from jealous mortal humans"?
* ''{{Achewood}}'' took potshots at stereotypically mediocre fantasy and furry webcomics hosted at places like Keenspot in [[http://achewood.com/index.php?date=01172005 this strip.]] Their activities are so poorly conveyed.
* Kris Straub's ''{{Chainsawsuit}}'' has done multiple Take Thats against other comics in the span of a few updates. These include [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/04/16/strip-353/ Perry Bible Fellowship]] and [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/04/04/strip-348/ XKCD]]. [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/05/09/strip-363/ Twice.]]
** ...[[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/09/17/strip-65/ turning to]] ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' movies, [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/09/18/strip-66/ and]] ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' and [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/11/25/strip-114/ Obligatory]] ''Franchise/StarTrek'' joke. [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/09/19/strip-67/ Also]], GeorgeLucas, [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2011/08/31/star-wars-is-for-toddlers-now/ his remakes]], [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2011/09/07/more-fun-with-george-lucas/ more]] of Lucas, and [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2011/10/05/georgie-luke/ his retcons]]. [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/08/20/strip-45/ Then]], ''VideoGame/{{Braid}}'', a [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/10/14/strip-84/ certain fastfood]] [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/10/23/strip-91/ and]] Creator/ConanOBrien as well [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/11/03/strip-98/ as]] ''LawAndOrder'' [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2009/01/12/strip-144/ and]] ''Series/{{Dateline}}''. Also, [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/12/15/strip-128/ poked fun]] at PaedoHunt and trolled unfunny [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/10/16/strip-86/ political]] {{troll}}s (see the next page), [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/11/26/strip-115/ parodied]] GreenAesop spam, "[[http://chainsawsuit.com/2009/02/13/strip-161/ Disastorm]]" GlobalWarning and LetsMeetTheMeat [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/12/03/strip-120/ ads]].
* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' has parodied ''PennyArcade'' twice. The two comics are [[http://xkcd.com/50/ here]] and [[http://xkcd.com/160/ here]]. But from the ending of the second and the AltText of the first, they definitely go into AffectionateParody rather than TakeThat.
** [[http://xkcd.com/739/ Also]], TheOtherWiki. Again, see AltText.
** And [[http://xkcd.com/756/ news]] (you know the drill). And [[http://xkcd.com/768/ Texas Instruments]].
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-11-13 Take THAT Science Fiction!]] from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''
** ''That''? In comics with "[[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-08-04 An Evil Monkey]] [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad -American]]"? And "Does [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2003-09-17 This]] [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Remind]] You... [[CrystalDragonJesus Of Anything]]?"
** "GeorgeLucas: TakeThat [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2005-11-09 Is Back]]!"; "[[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook/?date=2009-06-19 Vampire]] [[Literature/{{Twilight}} sparkling]]: [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp/?date=2009-10-29 what exactly]] is a big FetishRetardant".

** Sketchbook [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook/?date=2003-10-12 got]] Miss Sensorshep.
* ''[[Webcomic/EightBitTheater 8-bit Theater]]'' once did a comic in which is, effectively, Black Mage making a pee joke and everyone else reacting with confusion and mild disgust. The name of the strip? "[[VGCats VG Mages]]".
** 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).
* ''Two Lumps'' has taken several pot shots at ''Garfield.'' [[http://www.twolumps.net/d/20040405.html This]] is one of the more blatant examples.
* [[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.
** 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]]
** This isn't the only case of TakeThat that Milholland has ever done, of course. For example:
---> '''Davan''': [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp12032009.shtml I think I read the "Excited" entry on]] [[TheOtherWiki Wikipedia]] right before some idiot had it deleted for [[Administrivia/ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability relevance]].
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' once had the cast [[http://ads.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=980208 go to war]] with ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' and kill off every single character from that strip. Their reasons? "Dilbert just really ticks us off!" The news media also came in for a lampooning in that one.
** [[http://www.sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/090830 This (spoilerly) comic]] was a remarkably civil TakeThat to those who still insist that a certain character is still alive.
* In response to people who demanded faster updates, suggesting a sacrifice in art quality to achieve it, Thunt of {{Goblins}} offered [[http://www.goblinscomic.com/comics/20090310c.jpg this]] to appease them.
* ''LeastICouldDo'' launches one huge TakeThat against overblown [[CrisisCrossover Crisis Crossovers]], ComicbookDeath, [[WomenInRefrigerators Wasp Fridge Stuffing]] and [[RetCon sloppy retcons]]; starting [[http://leasticoulddo.com/comic/20090326 here]].
** And ''{{Overcompensating}}'', in defense of the webcomics whose characters were used without credit, [[http://overcompensating.com/posts/20090402.html retaliated]].
* [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_484.php This]] [[DanAndMabsFurryAdventures DMFA]] strip.
* [[http://hipper-reed.deviantart.com/gallery/ The Good Witch]] is an extended TakeThat against aspects of ''TheWotch''; [[http://hipper-reed.deviantart.com/art/Ch-2-pg-28-123857299 this strip]] in particular gives the idea.
* ''UGMadness'', a ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' webcomic, has done a few Take Thats against ''Franchise/YuGiOh''.
* ''SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' does this regularly. Besides the ones on religion: Take that [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=1472#comic art community!]] Take that [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=1472#comic sitcom platitudes!]] Take that [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=1522#comic imaginary government bureaucrats!]] Take that [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=1583 nerds!]]
* ''DuelingAnalogs'' did [[http://www.duelinganalogs.com/comic/2008/02/11/the-control-alt-delete-theorem/ one]] to the {{Hatedom}} of ''CtrlAltDel''.
* ''QuestionableContent'' had Sven and Faye starting up a Karaoke TakeThat against each other for three comics, starting [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1072 here]].
* ''BetterDays'' artist Jay Naylor once frequented [=FurryMUCK=], an online roleplaying environment for furries; during his time there, there was a specific section that he visited regularly, but when his behavior started to get on people's nerves, the owner of the "building" called him out on it in a rather public manner. So what does Naylor do? He leaves [=FurryMUCK=] '''and''' makes [[http://www.jaynaylor.com/betterdays/archives/chapter-16-lucy-black/ an entire chapter]] of his comic a prolonged TakeThat, turning D'anna into what is essentially the BigBad of the chapter.
* The announcement that the long-running ''PowerRangers'' show would end with its current incarnation ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'' has led to all sorts of fandom reactions, including [[http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/5449/advensckm0023.jpg this rather belated one]] from the Franchise/KamenRider-themed ''Soucha-Koma''.
* ''TalesOfTheQuestor'' [[http://www.rhjunior.com/totq/00590.html takes a jab at sparkly unicorns.]]
* The ''TalesOfTheQuestor'' spin-off ''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.
* ''VGCats'' did numerous of Take Thats, but one of the best is [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=145 this]].
** For those who love this smell in the morning - [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=147 carpet]] [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=148 bombing]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' these from time to time -- [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1700/fc01608.htm a typical example]].
** Or [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff600/fv00526.htm this]]. Or [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2000/fc01950.htm this]] (it's as if [[Literature/{{Twilight}} some]] horses were born for post-mortem kicking).
* A TakeThat [[http://umop.com/hamsterdunce/046.htm against]] ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' in the ''WebAnimation/RetardedAnimalBabies'' guy's webcomic.
* ''WebComic/DeadOfSummer'' did a TakeThat against the [[GeorgeWBush Bush Administration]] [[http://www.deadofsummer.org/2007/06/18/comic-249-press-conferences-gone-awry/ here.]]
* [[http://sexylosers.com/231.html Strip #231 (Bonejerk Homework)]] of ''SexyLosers'' takes a swipe at fans of ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo''.
* ''HijinksEnsue'' exists almost solely to hurl {{Take That}}s against various people and companies, most frequently {{FOX}} for their habit of picking up {{geek}}-centric shows (''{{Firefly}}'', ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', etc.) only to [[ScrewedByTheNetwork cancel them prematurely]]. The very first strip was a TakeThat against ''{{Spiderman}} 3''.
* ''TheWotch'' was at one point attacked by ''Website/SomethingAwful''. A few weeks later there came a minor plotline where Anne was besieged by a giant {{troll}}; Miranda West saved the day by banishing it to a dimension named Sapoe.
** "I sent it to a troll dimension, he'll like it, full of trolls"
* ''LivingWithInsanity'' indulges in these occasionally. Be they an AnimalWrongsGroup [[http://www.livingwithinsanity.com/index/?p=235 like here]], [[http://www.livingwithinsanity.com/index/?p=353 annoying customers]], [[http://www.livingwithinsanity.com/index/?p=327 emos]] and even [[http://www.livingwithinsanity.com/index/?p=348 David attacking himself]].
** The [[http://www.livingwithinsanity.com/The_Author/comic/fatman-returns-the-finale/ Finale]] of [[http://www.livingwithinsanity.com/The_Author/comic/sleeper_agent/ The Authors]] Fatman Returns saga is a blatant TAKE THAT at another website that accused the creator of plagiarism. The other "Fatman" site accused the creator of stealing ideas, and posting them on his site before they got a chance to post it on theirs. The (hilarious) accusation was unfounded since the other site was set up 5 months after The Author started his Fatman sagas.
* The bug of ''Webcomic/{{Bug|Martini}}'' sometimes [[http://www.bugcomic.com/comics/protesting/ really]] [[http://www.bugcomic.com/comics/bug-theaters/ dislikes]] Creator/MichaelBay.
* ''Webcomic/TheWhiteboard''
** Doc broadsides journalists who claim paintball is a war simulator by saying that the college courses seem to narrow their vocabulary.
** [[http://www.the-whiteboard.com/autowb417.html The password to Doc's e-mail account]] is "[[http://www.pbnation.com/ pbn]]suxxors".
* {{Ret-Conned}} took a [[http://www.ret-conned.com/archives/47 shot]] at Grant Morrison, after his shocking reveal in Batman & Robin #12.
* ''Webcomic/HeadTrip'' did a lot of this, mostly to ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' ([[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20080505.html itself]], [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20100401.html its fans]] and [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20100614.html its author]]), [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20100219.html The]] [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20100312.html Last]] [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20100705.html Avatar]] and brainless [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20060319.html TV shows]] ([[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20070420.html scare]] included).
** Though [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20070211.html Boston Mooninite Invasion]], [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20060629.html Emo Potter]], [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20061204.html Childfree]], [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20100217.html Otherkin]], [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20060514.html Sailor Moon]], [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20060904.html Cosplayers]] and [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20061218.html one very special abortion of the fashion]] also earned "honorable" mentions... plus [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20060908.html a handful of others]] who didn't even deserve a separate strip.
** Sets the [[http://headtrip.keenspot.com/d/20120326.html right baseline]] to appraise Creator/MichaelBay's version of TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles.
* ''AmazingSuperPowers'' [[http://www.amazingsuperpowers.com/2008/10/go-to-jail/ on certain legalisms]]. And [[http://www.amazingsuperpowers.com/2008/12/six-million-dollars/ one]] for ''Franchise/{{Robocop}}'' (see the name and AltText).
* ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'' [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=655 to]] ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''. And Creator/UweBoll. Of course.
** [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=546 Martians]] (''[[foldercontrol]]

* ''Luke Surl'' launched a [[http://www.lukesurl.com/archives/2279 many-pronged one]] (see AltText).
* In [[http://www.blipcomic.com/252/ this]] ''{{Blip}}'' strip, three friends, a witch, a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]], and a {{cyborg}}, watch a marathon of ''Film/HarryPotter and the Order of the Phoenix'', ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', and ''{{Terminator}} Salvation''. Their reactions are ''[[BileFascination priceless]]''.
* Now even ''{{Mezzacotta}}'' [[http://www.mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=1569-02-14 pokes fun]] at TVTropes!
* ''ExterminatusNow'' [[http://exterminatusnow.co.uk/2004-12-31/comic/non-storyline/randoms/we-interrupt-your-scheduled-comic-for-an-important-news-announcement/ had]] [[http://exterminatusnow.co.uk/2006-01-13/comic/facilitating-your-demise/derogatory-deviations/ some]] [[http://exterminatusnow.co.uk/2006-02-10/comic/non-storyline/randoms/clay-feline-shooting/ good]] [[http://exterminatusnow.co.uk/2006-02-17/comic/non-storyline/out-of-continuity-comics/what-does-the-scouter-say-about-his-power-level/ ones]].
* ''TheOatmeal'' artist/writer Matthew Inman expresses his 14 years of agonizing frustration as a web designer [[http://theoatmeal.com/comics/design_hell with this strip]]. No wonder the dude quit to make web comics.
* ''{{Sinfest}}'' is full of this. Got a [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=3705 good one]] to ToonTown and MickeyMouse. And [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=3735 Bread and Circuses]] mini-arc (see also the previous page).

* ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'' reminds: [[http://yafgc.net/?id=1986 be thankful for small gifts of Fate]] (hey, at least they don't [[{{Twilight}} sparkle]]).
** [[DisneyPrincess The DinSea Princess]] [[http://yafgc.net/?id=2200 visits]] Drostardy and "Um... How can I put it politely? ...I can't. There's no polite term for it". Also, the huge cloth box is [[PrincessesPreferPink pink]].
-->'''Goldie''': [[DumbBlonde Wow! Look at all the trees! I wonder, if this is the forest!]]
* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' had [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2006-02-19 an arc]] involving an {{expy}} of ''Series/WhatNotToWear''. The host had a misfortune to accost a [[SuperSoldier boosted]] and Elf in a rather irritable mood. Naturally, it wasn't long before she "[[YouPutTheXInXY put]] ''assault'' back in ''Glamour Assault''".
* Calliope and Caliborn of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' are widely believed to be jabs at two sectors of the HS fandom. Calliope represents the fans who obsess over it, doing fanart etc. and trying to drag their friends into reading HS. By contrast, Caliborn represents the impatience and rage of fans whenever [[AndrewHussie Hussie]] ''dares'' take more than 24 hours to update, as well as spluttering intolerance of the fans represented by Calliope.
** Taken UpToEleven as the most recent updates have Caliborn living out many of the complaints: he removed the [[WallOfText pesterlogs]], gets right down to action, introduces characters ''much'' sooner... [[StylisticSuck all in the most shitty way conceivable]].
* [[http://www.mezzacotta.net/garfield/?comic=1319 This]] ''Webcomic/SquareRootOfMinusGarfield'' takes a potshot at ''Music/{{Nickelback}}''. It's even titled "Take That" and has a link to the main TakeThat page to boot!
* A playful one in Webcomic/CommanderKitty has CK [[CharacterBlog tweeting]] to DaisyOwl and HomestarRunner and asking if he [[https://twitter.com/CommanderKitty/status/20631620913 could have]] [[https://twitter.com/CommanderKitty/status/20632147305 their audiences]] [[ScheduleSlip if they were done with them]].
* Among a few other TakeThat strips, as well as a few points of SelfDeprecation, ''CompletelySeriousComics'' has made [[http://completelyseriouscomics.com/?p=431 two pretty]] [[http://completelyseriouscomics.com/?p=640 harsh jabs]] towards ''JeffDunham''.
* From the exceedingly well done comic TheAbominableCharlesChristopher, comes this:
-->'''Patient''' (a ferret): What's the word for when you can't stand being in big crowds?
-->'''Psychiatrist''' (a cockroach): Agoraphobic.
-->'''Patient''': Well then what's the word you can't stand ''anything''?
-->'''Psychiatrist''': '''''Critic'''''.
* ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'' has taken its share of potshots at pop culture. One notable TakeThat against the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels took place during the storyline "Three", where Rikk, Aly and Rumy had dinner together for the first time since becoming a [[OT3 triad relationship]]. After a couple of attempts to get Rikk and Rumy to open up(the two of them were only speaking in two-word sentences), [[http://www.faans.com/books1-6/index.php?p=1679 Aly asked, "What, George Lucas is writin' y'r dialogue now?"]] This leads to [[http://www.faans.com/books1-6/index.php?p=1680 an ice-breaking discussion of what was wrong with the prequels, especially the Anakin/Padme romantic subplot.]]
-->'''Rumy''': Lucas makes me afraid. [[ProtectionFromEditors He's what happens when artists stop seeking criticism.]] Promise me you'll tell me when my work is bad?
