* AcceptableTargets: 4Kids itself. Especially prevalent in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', where there is at least one TakeThat every episode.
* CutAndPasteTranslation: Their ''Anime/OnePiece'' localization is so reviled some fans have accused it of being this; the others too are subject to debate.
** Given quite a hilarious ShoutOut[=/=]TakeThat [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=145 in this VG Cats comic.]]
** Poor, poor season 3 of ''Anime/SonicX''...[[NeverSayDie by the way I do hope Shadow finds Maria again some day]].
* MemeticMutation: [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/what-if-4kids-got-x?full=1 "If 4Kids got X"]], which takes an anime, often one that is not child-friendly at all, and applies 4Kids' editing practices to it.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Pretty much any [[{{Macekre}} dub]] 4kids made.
** Ironically, when 4Kids lost the rights to dub the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, many fans were outraged at the new dub by The Pokémon Company USA and wanted 4Kids to continue the dub.
