[[AC: ''Franchise/AceAttorney'']]
* ''[[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyShatteredGlass Ace Attorney: Shattered Glass]]'' mocks the fandom's usage of [[ScrappyMechanic super objections]] in some of the harder fan games.

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'']]
* ''FanFic/BringMeAllYourElderly'' is one long (hilarious) Take That against ''Film/TheLastAirbender'', with everything from the names to the [[BattleCry Battle Cries]] being mocked or parodied. Even [[spoiler: Shyamalan himself]] isn't safe, as he's portrayed as a no-talent hack with delusions of grandeur.
* ''FanFic/KyoshiRising'' also pokes fun at ''The Last Airbender''; Kyoshi's self taught Earthbending is very similar to the Bending in the movie, with plenty of arm motions and stomping to look big and impressive. However, this method only ever moves a few small rocks, and her Earthbending instructor says that excessive arm movement actually dissipates a person's energy.

[[AC: ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'']]
* ''Fanfic/BleachFanWorks'' has quite a few of the less intelligent in-story reviewers be fans of ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', and liking the poorly written [[ShowWithinAShow fanfics]] because they remind them of Twilight, even when they're not that much like it (although it often says more about the reviewers' intelligence). On the flip side, some of the in-story reviewers bring up resemblance to Twilight as a point against the fics they review.
-->'''Oshikko''': You're trying to mimic that shit Twilight. [[DamnedByFaintPraise You are successful in that but then... that isn't hard to do]].
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11021904/13/White White]]'' gives a quick one to the canon ranking of Espada. The Arrancar use a new system that tests battle effectiveness rather than just sheer power for ranking. Though oddly enough, Grimmjow, Ulquiorra, and Harribel all have the same ranks as canon. Despite Grimmjow being a Vasto Lorde instead of a mere Adjuchas as in canon, and Ulquiorra and Harribel both being stronger and more skilled than in canon due to training with White/Ichigo.

[[AC: ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'']]
* ''[[http://members.chello.nl/~jg.temolder1/stories/Chosen_to_Destroy.htm Chosen to Destroy]]'': In the author's own words it "sums up my opinion on the Buffy Finale: Chosen". The fic is basically an expression of the author's hatred and contempt for Buffy (and to a lesser extent Angel), having the First destroy the entire world, what should have been the best demon fighting team ever (Xander, Giles, Willow and Faith) fail to form, and the First Good itself try (and fail) to set Buffy up to die, all because of Buffy's stupidity and ego.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10652386/7/Buffy-the-Vampire-Awakenings Buffy the Vampire: Awakenings]]'' is a story where Buffy becomes a vampire after biting the Master before he killed her. At one point Xander calls her a Slaypire (the canon name for a Turned Slayer) only for Buffy to tell him the name sucks.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12146061/9/Memory Memory]]'' pokes fun at Spike getting his soul back as it turns out he wanted to have his chip removed and go back to being the vampire Drusilla sired. He even notes he wanted to be "what he was" and he'd never been an ensouled vampire. He's further irritated that the demon didn't go all the way and turn him human again.

[[AC: ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'']]
* ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'', being [[BetterThanABareBulb very]]-[[MediumAwareness self aware]], has a few.
** Among the scary things Calvin is shown in one episode include [[WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer Dora.]]
** "Wild Movie" starts with Calvin being disgusted by the mere prospect of a sequel to Film/TheIncredibleHulk.
** When terrifying Sherman in "Sherman Goes to the Vet":
--> '''Hobbes:''' The vet shall attack you, young Vermin! Be afraid! Be very afraid! Think of [[Film/BatmanAndRobin that 1997 Batman movie with]] Creator/GeorgeClooney! Terrifying! Not terrifying entertainment! Just terrifying!
** Calvin spends part of "Hypercube" complaining about the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels.
--> "Alternative title: Star Wars III: ''A Trip to the Dentist''."
** After encountering CreepyMonotone clones in "Electronic Invasion":
--> '''Hobbes:''' Are you all going to become Ben Stein stand-ins?
** From Klein's [[OverlyLongGag long speech]] in "Attack of the Monsters":
--> "...no pagers, no iPods, no iPhones, no iTunes, no PDA, no laptops, digital cameras, no video cameras, no mini-DVD's… In fact, no technology that essentially does the exact same thing, but Apple says are each incredibly different in a scheme to make money."
** Earlier than that, "Calvin Gets Professional Help" had jabs towards ''WesternAnimation/BarbieOfSwanLake'', ''Franchise/{{Bratz}}'', and ''Film/{{The Lost World|Jurassic Park}}''.
** Andy's story in "Tales of a Tiger" reveals that at least one of the authors isn't too fond of video games, and more explicitly thinks Bluetooths are really stupid (or at least make figuring out if someone's a loony harder).
** And Socrates' idea for making the fun house scarier in "Dark Laughter"? Having ''[[Music/LadyGaga Bad Romance]]'' play in every room.
--> '''Andy:''' Yep, after several failed attempts, they have succeeded in making her more terrifying than she already is.
* From [[Fanfic/TheCalvinverse the same universe]] as the above, ''Fanfic/RetroChill'' mentions that ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'' is available on VVV (which is shown to be a very painful means of watching something).

[[AC: ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberiumWars'']]
* ''Fanfic/TiberiumWars'' has a few of these, directed at the official {{Novelization}} of the game, including a choice jab at the novel's act of having a raw private dropping his loaded rifle and scoring a headshot at long range with a pistol - by having the same thing happen, except the man doing it is ''[[BadassGrandpa Havoc.]]''
-->''The Nod biker was a hundred meters away, with a dozen Nod soldiers between him and the man by Nigel's bike. A normal soldier, straight out of boot on his first day, would never have made that kind of shot with a pistol. Even an experienced target shooter might find it difficult.''
-->''But that was why they called him "Havoc."''

[[AC: CrossOver]]
* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' occasionally - and gleefully - mocks and subverts any number of fandom conventions, namely, harems (repeatedly), the FandomSpecificPlot of Super!Harry and Lord!Harry (which usually involve him becoming mysteriously hypercompetent at everything, an inexplicable SexGod and completely different from his canon incarnation), the [[HetIsEw inexplicable slashing of every straight male character in sight]][[labelnote:*]]Which doesn't stop him writing at least one male/male romance into the fic, but the sexualities of the characters involved are previously established as "gayer than your average rainbow" and "bored by your quaint little categories".[[/labelnote]] and Harry/Hermione, among other things.
** The entire fic could be considered a TakeThat aimed at everyone who writes WishFulfillment Harry Potter fic, basically saying, 'this is how it's done properly'.
** The author also, in the A/N, harshly deconstructs ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheInvincibleTechnomage'', scathingly describing it as 'how ''not'' to write a crossover'.
** And takes shots at writers of RevengeFic, describing it as the mark of a childish and incompetent writer.
** And then there's the usual mockery of ''Twilight'', when Harry Dresden points out that in a world where vampires are very real and very dangerous, taking the book seriously is like hanging a 'please eat me' sign around your neck. He then adds that fatal vampire attacks have at least quadrupled since the publication of the first book and speculates that Meyer is TheRenfield to either the [[HumanoidAbomination Red]] or [[VampiresAreSexGods White Court]].
** During the chaos of the first book's FinalBattle, Dumbledore says that if it weren't for the presence of civilians, he'd let the rampaging demons currently destroying the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tate_Modern Tate Modern]] finish the job, considering it a service to British art and culture.
** It is also very hard to see the proclamation of General Lukin, one of the villains of the ''Forever Red'', that he's going to "Make Russia Great Again", something shown to be a vainglorious, foolish, and downright insane ambition, as anything other than a very intentional jab at a certain President of the United States.
* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime'' has this as a RunningGag with [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Holmes and Watson]] taking shots at certain elements of [[TakeThatAudience their own fandom]], or at their image in pop culture. [[OneOfUs Beth Lestrade]] occasionally lampshades this.
* The credits sequence of ''WebAnimation/DoubleRainboom'' shows Rainbow Dash and Buttercup playing what appears to be a parody of ''VideoGame/MyLittlePonyFightingIsMagic''. This can be seen as a Take That at the Mane 6 Dev Team: "Oh, your game got shut down for being too popular? Well, guess what: we did an animation and got away with it!"
* [[TheScrappy Matt Ward's]] [[CreatorsPet Creator's Pets]] do not fare well in ''FanFic/TheGodEmpressOfPonykind''; most of the Ultramarines are killed offscreen, and Kaldor Draigo is reduced to a smear by [[GeneralFailure Abaddon]] without much effort. The only notable Ultramarine who survived was Captain [[VideoGame/SpaceMarine Titus Endor]], who was a deliberate effort to defy Ward's vision of the Chapter.
* ''FanFic/FinishingTheFight'' has a scene near the end where Johnson and Keyes, who survived the events of ''{{VideoGame/Halo 3}}'' in this story, reminisce about how Keyes was able to successfully rescue Johnson from the Covenant because she ''didn't'' make [[TooDumbToLive the mistakes that got her killed]] in the game.
* At one point in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6272222/10 this]] WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy + Franchise/KingdomHearts FanFic: the bad guys blow up the world of [[WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest Johnny]] [[TheScrappy Test]].
* ''FanFic/MonstersInParadise'': In the first chapter, Remilia is told that a certain visitor to the Mansion is a newcomer from outside Gensokyo. Remilia is rather cross after being woken up mid-day, so she immediately complains about having to put on the "haughty ominous noblewoman" act and wishing that Yukari wouldn't drag in people from outside left and right.[[note]]This references a plot commonly seen in Touhou fanfiction involving original characters.[[/note]] Sakuya is quick to cut off the rant before she gets too far.
* ''Fanfic/NoHoper'' [[HateFic is a huge one against]] ''Literature/TheHouseOfNight'' series.
* The writer of ''FanFic/OriginStory'' really doesn't like the MarvelUniverse's Carol Danvers, and has gone on record as saying that she's unworthy of the name "Captain Marvel". (In his opinion, only [[{{Shazam}} Billy Batson]] has earned that moniker.) As such, Captain Marvel continually gets used as a punching bag by the story's heroine, Alex "Superwoman" Harris.
-->'''Dirty Jim:''' (during a radio interview) "So nothing bad about the Avengers?"
-->'''Alex Harris:''' "Well, Captain Marvel's a total [BLEEPED OUT]. Can I say [Bleeped Out] on the radio?
-->'''Russ Rollins:''' "Not technically, but we're running on a delay, so it'll get bleeped out."
-->'''Alex Harris:''' "Okay, in that case yeah, Captain Marvel is a complete and total [Bleeped Out] and I'm glad I kicked her ass. Twice."
* Minor example in ''FanFic/PaperMarioX 2'', where Link seems to be unaware of ''VideoGame/FireEmblem''. Keep in mind that nearly ''every single Nintendo game'' is connected in this verse.
** Although this may just be a jab at the fact that MarthDebutedInSmashBros, so Link most likely hasn't been to the Fire Emblem world yet.
* ''FanFic/TheReturn'': ''The Return'' takes several potshots at MagicalGirl series, and Franchise/SailorMoon in particular, {{tropes}} (FanService outfits, Flowery Speeches about The PowerOfLove and [[InTheNameOfTheMoon Catchphrases]], themed names. Did we mention it is Sailor Moon/Ranma FukuFic?
* ''FanFic/SpidersAndMagicRiseOfSpiderMane'' has a really satisfying take on Jameson. [[spoiler: Twilight buys out the Daily Bugle, and fires Jameson.]] This is something every Spider-Man fan really wants to happen.
* At one point in ''FanFic/TheStoryToEndAllStories'', the characters all shout [[spoiler:SHUT UP, LEMONY SNICKET!]].
* ''FanFic/ThousandShinji'' has one against the GainaxEnding of the original NGE:
-->"For those of you prepared to rant at me, there is one more chapter to this story, so unlike Gainax, you will actually get [[MindScrewdriver an explaination]] (sic) as part of the denouement."
* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7042941 Naruto Rend]]: While Gaara is giving Naruto, Hinata and Lee--all of whom were considered "failures" and "losers" in Part I of the series--a quick rundown of the situation between the Gotei 13 and Aizen, Naruto asks what Aizen's goal is. Gaara and Ichigo respond with becoming a God. Naruto asks with irritated sarcasm if Aizen has a Sharingan.
* The original ''FanFic/DantesNightAtFreddys'' criticizes the often fanatical and poorly written nature of fictional news headlines, including those of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' itself and one against WebOriginal/JeffTheKiller.
** The sequel features a couple as well, including that both Dante and his daughter hate [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic magical talking ponies]], and that The management of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza is glad that the animatronics killed a [[LetsPlay/PewDiePie Swedish weirdo named Felix]]
* The ''Literature/HarryPotter''/''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' story ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-30909-19/Cuautla+A+Jedi+a+Wizard+and+a+Scooby+walk+into+a+bar.htm A Jedi, a Wizard, and a Scooby walk into a bar]]'' throws in a dig against Hermione's habit of writing far more for her assignments than asked. When Xander becomes the Assistant Professor for History Of Magic, he notes that anything more than a certain amount above what he asks (such as blurbs more than three inches when he asked for two) was going to automatically get a zero, though he doesn't mention it's mostly because he doesn't want to read that much.
* [[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Louise]] hates the imperial system of measurement in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8753582/5/Overlady Overlady]]'' and declares that having 1,760 yards to a mile is stupid compared to much simpler 1,000 metres to the kilometre. Any system that requires memorizing such random numbers is ridiculous.
* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'':
** The fic takes numerous potshots at the "Tyrantestia", "Waifu Luna", and "New Lunar Republic" memes.
** Xenilla mocks the fact that ''Princess'' Cadance and before her ''King'' Sombra rule the Crystal ''Empire'', commenting that Empires are ruled by Emperors and Empresses.
** After several Flash Sentry haters complained about his brief scenes (including a cameo where he ''didn't even say anything'') and demanded he stop appearing in the fic, the author responded by giving him more scenes and promising to expand his role when the fic gets to the ''Rainbow Rocks'' timeline. The author also expressed displeasure that Flash became DemotedToExtra, stopped getting CharacterDevelopment, and was made to look like a total chump in ''Rainbow Rocks'' and ''Friendship Games'' just because of several fans complaining to Hasbro about him. The author pointed out that like Flash, Sunset Shimmer used to be hated by the fans, [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap but became popular]] ''because'' Hasbro chose to give her more screen time and CharacterDevelopment in the later movies.
** After several rude comments bragging that the Godzilla from ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'' would make mincemeat of the fic's version of the grown up Godzilla Junior and demanding Tarbtano replace the fic's version with the 2014 one, Tarbtano wrote a semi-canon blog of the MirrorUniverse's 2014 version losing to the MirrorUniverse's Godzilla Junior. Though to soften the blow to the 2014 creature itself, as Tarb's gripe wasn't with it but its FanDumb, the 2014 Godzilla did put up a good fight and the bout ended in a logical way.
** His words in the same blog imply Mirror Godzilla is one to the people complaining and demanding a DarkerAndEdgier Godzilla story. They got it: as the BigBad of a MirrorUniverse story.
** In the AprilFoolsDay special, where Pinkie Pie, Sonata Dusk, and Megalon travel the multiverse, when they get to a blend of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfTheTitanic'' and ''WesternAnimation/TitanicTheLegendGoesOn'', the trio are disgusted and call it an atrocity, especially the octopus and the rapping dog. When the trio arrives in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', Sonata calls the adults in that world irresponsible for letting ten year olds wander a wilderness full of creatures that could easily kill people unsupervised.
** The villain Jeog is a playful jab at the MagicalGirlfriend trope, as Tarbtano would like us to know, just because something is a hottie in mythology does ''not'' make it "Waifu" material.
* When Xander has to clone the Joker in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11206143/10/The-Plagiarist The Plagiarist]]'', his first two attempts spawn the ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' and ''Film/SuicideSquad'' versions. Alfred calls the first to be nothing like the original and the second "closer, but still a failure".
* At one point in ''FanFic/AShadowOfTheTitans'', Gadjo goes back in time specifically to RetGone ''WesternAnimation/PinkyElmyraAndTheBrain''.
** Later on, Gadjo eats (and badly digests) the pie containing Mother Mae Eye, thereby expressing the author's disgust at both the character and her episode.
* An original House-Elf in ''[[https://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-23251-5/BarefootXO+Time+and+Again.htm Time and Again]]'' is used to mock the idea of someone in Literature/HarryPotter earning the UndyingLoyalty of a magical creature/race through manners. When Hermione thanks Xander's personal House-Elf Ripper, he only gives her thanks as much attention as a normal person would, making her wonder why he "didn't immediately make a great show of how wonderful [she] was for showing him such kindness".
** There's also a quick shot taken at a scene the [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire fourth film]] when Hermione says the Unforgivables are called as such because "they're unforgivable". Xander tells her that merely repeating their description does nothing to explain ''why'' they're called unforgivable, and lets his students puzzle out that the reason they're called the Unforgivables is because you have to enjoy their results (MindControl, ColdBloodedTorture, and instant death) to successfully cast them.
* ''Fanfic/AManOfIron'': When Margaery Tyrell is introduced in the second book, Theon notes that the "duckface" she makes when upset is very unflattering. This is a jab at a notorious acting quirk of Creator/NatalieDormer's that the author can't stand.

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'']]
* ''FanFic/AccidentMonthOne'': In one single paragraph, Princessbinas managed to do this to ''all'' of [[Creator/MNightShyamalan Night M Shyamalan's films]], ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', ''Mystery Diagnosis'', and ''{{Literature/Twilight}}''.

[[AC: ''Manga/DeathNote'']]
* ''Fanfic/AllYouNeedIsLove'' has a take that at the ''Manga/DeathNote'' fandom when [[TheDitz Matsuda]] [[IWroteOurStory begins work on]] [[SoapWithinAShow a soap opera based on the lives of the Kira taskforce]] in which he "reimagines" Light's character as [[TheWoobie poor]] [[{{Wimpification}} wimpy]] [[ThisIsMyNameOnForeign Hikaru]] [[MemeticMutation Imagay]], the gay prostitute. Light is not amused:
--> '''Light:''' [[TranquilFury You know, this is excellent proof that I'm not Kira.]] [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou Ryuuzaki may be miserable and death-seeking but if I had been Kira then surely Matsuda would be dead by now.]]
* The SlashFic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/429058/chapters/723974 Cold Hearts]]'' has one against [[MemeticMutation Imagay]] [[NeverHeardThatOneBefore jokes]]:
-->''Naturally, the news that Yagami-san had a boyfriend had spread across the campus like wildfire and thus his esteemed peers had created a new nickname for him that had quickly became popular among idiots who thought they were clever.''
* In the [[AlternateUniverseFic AU]] fanfic ''Fanfic/TheFaceless'', in an instance of LeaningOnTheFourthWall, [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero Light is skeptical about having Naomi Penber, a woman, serving among his soldiers complaining that she might get pregnant and slow them down.]] Naomi counters that there was more of a chance of [[SlashFic Light getting]] [[MisterSeahorse pregnant]] than her.
* The SlashFic ''FanFic/FeverDreams'' has a Take That at BoysLoveGenre stereotypes:
-->'''L''': There's the cultural stereotype of the {{Uke}}, who receives blow jobs from the {{Seme}}, which is seen as a privilege for the {{Uke}}. In return, the {{Seme}} gets to enter the {{Uke}}, which is a privilege for the {{Seme}}. However, it's considered degrading and low-status to be entered by another man, so supposedly nobody wants to be the {{Uke}} and the blow jobs are seen as a way to compensate the {{Uke}} for that humiliation and entice him into his role. I think you view yourself as the {{Seme}} and me as the {{Uke}}.
-->'''Light''': But those are just stereotypes. No relationship is really that simple unless there's at least one idiot involved.
* In ''FanFic/KiraIsJustice'':
--> The rest of them consisted of security cameras, new channels, and re-runs of ''Series/SesameStreet'' (one with a previously-banned appearance of [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Taylor Lautner]]).
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6249718/1/L-s-Proof L's Proof]]'' is a big Take That against fanfic clichés involving [[KnightTemplar L's morally ambiguous investigation]], focusing on [[WhatTheHellHero the police officers reactions to the various ways L would "prove" that Light is Kira]] such as calling Light "Kira" when he's half-asleep or [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty when chaining him to the bed and having his way with him.]]
-->'''Aizawa:''' I think Light would have admitted to being Santa Claus at that moment. That really doesn't prove anything. Except that you're a pervert.
-->'''Matsuda:''' And a rapist. Did you hear Light-kun at the start? He was saying no!
-->'''L:''' Unconventional methods are sometimes necessary to get a confession.
-->'''Aizawa:''' Except we don't have any evidence pointing to Light being Kira, aside from your personal opinion.
* ''Fanfic/LightAndDarkTheAdventuresOfDarkYagami'' has one directed at [[Wiki/TVTropes this very site.]] Literally, "(AN: Take that, Tv Tropes!)"
** And one directed at ''Anime/CodeGeass'':
-->''"Suddenly a rocket WOOOSHED past and left a big line of smoke and a bang at the end where it missed but only the helicopter because it still hit another tower but it was okay because noone was in the tower except for that [[Franchise/CodeGeass leloosh guy]] (MORE LIKE LELOSER AM I RIGHT!) an d everyone hates him so its cool except he has a giant robot [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch and also ive never seen it]]."''
** And yet another one at ''{{Literature/Twilight}}'':
--> [...] but it [[YourVampiresSuck [the skin] wasn't shiny cos those vampires are lame]]
** The FanSequel Fanfic/LightAndDarkDEUXTheNewAdventuresOfDarkSoichiro gives one to Website/DeviantART, by claiming it is actually {{DevLantart}}, a site inhabited by 'freeks' who make 'krappy art'. It is also said that the site was invented to [[YourSoulIsMine feed souls]] to {{DevL}}.
* ''FanFic/ThingsThatCantBeUnseen'' is one against badfic, {{Rule34}}, anatomically impossible situations, very wrong pairings, and [[RougeAnglesOfSatin spelling errors]].

[[AC: ''LightNovel/DemonKingDaimao'']]
* On chapter 6.5 of ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8514012/16/Keena-the-Defendants-of-Constan-Magic-Academy Keena & the Defendants of Constan Magic Academy]]'', quite a notable use of this trope (and perhaps AuthorFilibuster, as well) about the current anime industry and pretty much Harem anime ''overall''. Here's just a taste of the rant:
--> '''Michie:''' No one wants to fucking see that. It's sexist, it's desperate, and the worst part is this shit always sells! It's sexist for BOTH genders! It's sexist for females because it shows how desperate they are just to get one guy and battle each other for him, despite the fact that there are more fish in the sea and at least learn to communicate with other possible males around, not just get one fucking guy! And it's sexist for males because the writers make it seem that if you're boring, generic and uninteresting; you're no doubt the perfect guy! That's a big "fuck you" for males who actually do have unique quantities, trying hard to even try to get a girl, no matter if they look ugly or pretty and have difficult lives!

[[AC: ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'']]
* In the Anime/DigimonAdventure02 fan fic ''FanFic/Digimon02TheStoryWeNeverTold'', Oikawa's password to [[spoiler: take control of the Armor-Digivolved Digimons]] is "Champions of the Digital World" which is a reference against the dub version of Brave Heart, "Hey Digimon". Haruhiko even embarrassingly admitted that it's one of his catchphrase back when [[spoiler: when he was adventuring as one of the five Original Digidestined]].

[[AC: ''Literature/{{Discworld}}]]''
* In the first chapter of ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fanfic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7044882/1/Whistle-and-I-ll-come-to-thee-boy Whistle, and I'll come to thee, boy]]'', a younger Mustrum Ridcully fires quite a lot of sideways digs at the Harry Potter/Hogwarts school of thought re: training young Wizards.
--> Give adolescents access to spellbooks and magic wands and things, and there's no tellin' what the little sods'll get up to. It'll all be School Houses with peculiar names, or just dam' silly ones, in competition with each other...

* In one installment of the ''Fanfic/SkyholdAcademyYearbook'' series, [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Dorian]] makes a crack about "Fifty Shades of whatever ghastly monstrosity against literature that thing was." Varric responds by growling and declaring, "We do not speak of ''that''."

* ''Webcomic/TheChosenFour'' includes a very clever Take That at ''{{VideoGame/Superman 64}}'', which is combined with FauxHorrific and SuckinessIsPainful: when the gang is traveling to Threed, the last thing the ghosts scare our heroes with is a copy of said game.

[[AC: ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'']]
* ''Fanfic/ZeroNoTsukaimaSaitoTheOnmyoji'' has one to canon's [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale relationship]] between Saito and Louise. While writing up a Master/Apprentice Contract, the two are told that the Deflowering Punishment[[note]]Which is exactly what it sounds like: the master raping their apprentice as punishment[[/note]] has to be included for it to be legal, they set it to "maliciously casting ten explosions at Saito within five minutes followed by beating him with a whip" to make it as unlikely as possible.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9421918/3/Soldier-of-Zero Soldier of Zero]]'' likewise takes a shot at Louise's canon abuse of Saito when the latter semi-jokingly asks if Louise would beat him with a riding crop if he admitted to lying about possibly being a noble. Louise quickly insists that such a thing would be completely unbecoming of her. No mage would beat their familiar and the fact he's human makes such a thing even more unacceptable.
** A more minor one is made about the idea of any romance between Louise and Saito. Regardless of anything else, they'd always be Master and Familiar which would complicate any relationship they had. Worse, if a relationship didn't work out between them, they'd still be stuck with each other for the rest of their lives.

[[AC: ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'']]
* ''Fanfic/FullmetalLol'' makes ''extensive'' use of this trope toward ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen''. And a particularly hilarious example involving [[spoiler: Music/JustinBieber]].

[[AC: Series/GossipGirl]]
* The story "Coming Home" has one where Rufus decides that dating Lisa Loeb sounds completely absurd. At the end, he ends up getting back with his ex-wife Alison instead.

[[AC: ''Series/{{Glee}}'']]
* In ''FanFic/HuntingTheUnicorn'', the Warblers ''constantly'' lampshade Kurt and Blaine's TastesLikeDiabetes relationship and [[ButNotTooGay lack of sex drive]]. It becomes a FunnyAneurysmMoment when we find out that [[spoiler: Blaine tried to invoke SexEqualsLove at ''sixteen'' and ended up [[TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest heartbroken]].]]
* In the story Never The Same, the main character Charlie tells Will that there are more than two kinds of performers than just KatyPerry and Music/LadyGaga and and that Katy is definitely not as family-friendly as the show wants you to believe.
* In the story ''Good Directions'', Faith is offered a chance to star in a movie remarklably similar to the latter half of Season 5. She mentions that she turned it down.

[[AC: ''Literature/HarryPotter'']]
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2205019/1/Harry-Potter-the-Azkaban-Parody Harry Potter & the Azkaban Parody]]'', ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, is a Take That against the usual Harry in Azkaban plot where everyone demands (not asks, ''demands'') that [[EasilyForgiven he immediately forgive them]] for wrongfully imprisoning him in Azkaban Prison for "one year, three months, two weeks, four days, seven hours, thirteen minutes, and twenty six seconds," killing his owl right in front of him, stealing from him, and destroying his property. And instead of taking him to a doctor or allowing him to recover from the effects of starvation and the Dementors they immediately force him back into school "where you will be constantly bombarded with all the people you don't want to see until you break down and forgive us." Needless to say, Harry is less than impressed.
* ''FanFic/HarryPotterAndTheSomethingSomething'' is solidly made of these, to every FandomSpecificPlot on FFN. To whit: Dursleys being jerks, Dumbledore being a KnightTemplar, hidden siblings, hidden parents, harems, OCs of every color, CrackFic, [[GenderSwap reverse-gender fic]], Harry in Azkaban...
* Chapter 9 of [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/393950/Deritine Deritine]]'s (canon compliant to book 6) fanfic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2862220/1/Warping_Circumstances Warping Circumstances]]'' explains that the canon series is actually the result of Harry's failure to defeat Voldemort (in the universe of the fanfic). The "Powers That Be" were going to replay the major players in the propecy repeat it with "karmic debt". As the explanation of what would happen to who and why, it quickly becomes clear that the PTB, and by implication canon, are both horribly unfair and needlessly sadistic.
* Many post-''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]'' fanfics that [[FanonDiscontinuity ignore the epilogue]] still manage to fit the name Albus Severus in somewhere and have someone comment on how awful it it would be to actually be named that.
** ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6763981/1/The-Dark-Lord-s-Equal The Dark Lord's Equal]]'' gives us a fan theory for [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude Albus Seversus's]] sucky name: Harry got drunk and began listing the names of all the people he hated in his life on his future son's birth certificate so the kid ended up being named "Albus Severus Tom Vernon Potter."
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5858832/1/HJG-The-Smartest-Witch-of-Her-Age HJG: The Smartest Witch of Her Age]]'' is a oneshot dedicated to tearing apart the popular fanon idea of Hermione being the smartest witch ever who knows absolutely everything.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11136250/1/Rage this]]'' AU of Goblet of Fire, the author went on record stating that Hermione's unsympathetic depiction is partially in retaliation to constantly seeing her propped up as the greatest thing ever by her fans, having found her less sympathetic upon reading herself.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11669575/5/For-Love-of-Magic For Love of Magic]]'' takes a few shots at various Harry Potter fanon such as magical cores (there's no such thing, magical ability is more about intelligence and willpower). Also the common insistence that Snape's Occlumency lessons were nothing but attacking/raping Harry's mind is thrown out as well. Such actions are actually the fast way of learning Occlumency: getting a Legilimans to attack your mind repeatedly until you instinctively throw them out.
** The occasionally done "Harry sues someone for writing fictional books about him" is turned on its head when the author in question is mortified and admits she never intended to publish said books until a friend talked her into it. She also immediately offers Harry 40% of all future profits along with a large sum for past ones. Harry ends up feeling rather uncomfortable when he realizes this.
** A mild one is given to the FandomSpecificPlot of arresting Harry for killing Death Eaters. Fudge thinks to himself that even if the families of said Death Eaters insisted it was a prank that Harry overreacted to, the public outcry would destroy anyone involved in such a debacle.
** The idea of a soul bond is brushed off as the idea of airheaded nitwits. The closest thing is The Joining which is basically brainwashing someone and making them addicted to you via sex magic.
** Harry snarks that Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey is basically a manual on how not to have a BDSM relationship, instead being the story of the emotional manipulation and breakdown of a very naive and inexperience girl.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11574569/1/Dodging-Prison-and-Stealing-Witches-Revenge-is-Best-Served-Raw Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches]]'' contains a dig against PeggySue stories where the hero tries to preserve the timeline so they can rely on their knowledge of the future. Death and Fate note that when they sent Harry's twin brother John back in time to fix things, he did it all wrong by trying to preserve the timeline despite needing to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong. When they send Harry back (because despite what John thought, they only give a single second chance to anyone), they insist Harry use every advantage he possibly can as soon as he possibly can.
* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12266465/3/Don-t-Be-a-Dobby-Downer chapter 3 of Don't Be a Dobby Downer]] takes a jab at evil!Dumbledore who wants things done his way. The dialogue below takes place after Harry transfers to Beauxbatons in his 2nd year:
-->Severus: (to Dumbledore) I'm surprised you aren't panicking.
-->Dumbledore: Sometimes I think neither of you give me nearly enough credit, he's {Harry} a boy and learned about our world, Beauxbatons is a fine institution, and he will be safe there, Madame Maxine is a careful Headmistress, they in fact have a better safety record than Hogwarts herself.
--> Minerva: It really doesn't bother you?
--> Dumbledore: [[SarcasmMode What should I do? Act like some stuck up idiot and try and force him to do things my way?]] [[RealityEnsues He's twelve Minerva, and I'm far too old to go wandering about political offices trying to get him to return to Britain. Even if I were to succeed, it would cost me many favors and much worse it would make the boy indignant.]]

[[AC: ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'']]
* ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled'' has a chapter which makes fun of Creator/FourKidsEntertainment, claiming that if [=4Kids=] had been the company to dub ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'', the setting would have been {{Bowdlerized}} to the point of being a SugarBowl.

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'']]
* In ''Fanfic/TheNewAdventuresOfInvaderZim'', it's made clear that even Norlock -- an actual vampire -- hates ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', finding it an insult to his kind. Episode 12 even sees him attack a fan convention for a SerialNumbersFiledOff version of the franchise, taking the time to air a lot of the same complaints people have about ''Twilight'' in real life (though the story also takes the time to lampshade how petty some haters of the series can be).

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'']]
* During one of the [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind glimpses inside Jade's mind]] in ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'', the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Aspect]] representing Love is stuffed in a barrel and thrown overboard, because "things are complicated enough; we don't need lovey-dopey stuff in the mix." WordOfGod is that this is meant to be a statement against unnecessary {{Shipping}} making stories more complicated than they need to be.
* ''FanFic/AgesOfShadow'': The entire ''Anime/YuGiOh'' homage/parody StoryArc is full of these, lampshading said series' various plot holes, odd plot mechanics, and bizarre character designs. But one moment that stands out in particular is at the end, when Alonso asks Brenner about rumors that he's intending to start a [[Anime/YuGiOhGX school dedicated to teaching the card game]]. Brenner responds by stating that the whole concept is stupid, as how could you build a whole school year curriculum around a game?

[[AC: ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'']]
* In Fanfic/{{Reconciliation}}, [[OriginalCharacter Sho]] talks about the perks of his job as the publicist for Hanako, a successful novelist, resulting in a TakeThat at {{Twilight}}.
-->'''Sho''':"And I got to tell [[Creator/StephenieMeyer that woman]] who wrote those trashy teenage vampire novels how much her books suck."
-->'''Hanako''':"I-I... I.... I remember that. She… she tried to tell you that you just 'didn’t get it,' and... and y-you said..."
-->'''Sho''': “What’s to get? Vampires… don’t... s-sparkle! You hack!”

[[AC: ''Disney/TheLionKing'']]
* In ''Fanfic/TheLionKingAdventures'', a TakeThat is directed at ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Apparently, Death isn't a fan.
-->'''Death:''' It was all me, Simba! I've been laying traps for you all along – ready to bring you to this exact moment! It's brilliant! It's ingenious! Better than when I burned down WesternAnimation/{{FernGully|TheLastRainforest}}! Better than when I crushed the [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Powerpuff Girls]]! ''Better than ripping the heads off of all those annoying, colourful ponies who don't ever shut the hell up!''

[[AC: ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'']]
* ''Fanfic/InTheService'' is itself a subtle but fairly long TakeThat against the tendency of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' fanfiction to make the Time-Space Administrative Bureau even more MildlyMilitary than it actually is in canon, or to outright forget it exists in favor of AU or semi-AU [=NanoFate=] stories. It also delivers a few more direct ones.
** The offshoot story ''A Numbered Existence'' spends several chapters on the Huckebein from ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'', culminating in Jail Scaligetti's Combat Cyborgs curbstomping most of them in "What We Were Born To Do" and Veyron's belated acknowledgement that a large multi-planetary government has a whole lot more resources and people to throw at the Huckebein they could ever have dealt with in "Flipside".
*** A lesser but related example is Tre's taking one look at Cypha's oversized swords during their first encounter and dismissing them for being too easy to step inside the arc of. Tre then immediately demonstrates this problem by getting in close and nearly taking one of Cypha's hands off.
** The concept of MindlinkMates comes into play during a discussion of inter-Wolkenritter relationships, where it's revealed that because that trope would ensue the Wolkenritter can't have physical relationships with each other: no longer being an individual is ''scary''.

[[AC: ''Anime/MacrossDelta'']]
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12079838/1/How-Roid-s-Plan-Could-Backfire-Horribly How Roid's Plan Could Have Backfired Horribly]]'' is a series of one-shots making horrible fun of Roid's master plan by showing how things could have backfired on him, starting with the canon scene where Roid declares Windermere the heirs of Protoculture being interrupted by [[spoiler:a Zentraedi Main Fleet wiping out the planet in the odd chance he was right]].

[[AC: ''Anime/MaiHime'']]
* A few are in ''Fanfic/PerfectionIsOverrated''
** The entire fic is one against Mary Sue characters by virtue of deconstructing who they really are
** Mai gets one against certain shippers when confronting [[spoiler:Bachiko and Meiko]], denouncing the act of changing people’s personalities and memories so they get together with the right people.
** Makoto’s [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys superficial attraction]] to [[ManipulativeBastard Nagi]] and [[LoveRedeems belief that he’ll change]] is also a reference to the DracoInLeatherPants trope.

[[AC: ''Franchise/MarvelUniverse'']]
* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/427108/chapters/718178 Deeds (or To Be Worthy)]]'' Loki has this to say about Mephisto:
-->'''Loki:''' He is beneath me. His idea of villainy is [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay to play practical jokes on Spider-Man.]]
* ''[[Fanfic/UltimateSleepwalker Ultimate Sleepwalker: The New Dreams]]'' has a number of jabs aimed at things that bug the author:
** Rick and Cyrus are discussing the notion that Franchise/SpiderMan got his powers from a [[ComicBook/JMSSpiderMan spider-totem]], and immediately dismiss it as the stupidest thing they've ever heard. They then discuss the only things that could be even stupider, such as the idea of Spider-Man unmasking himself.
** Kenny criticizes Creator/MattGroening for allowing ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' for staying on the air years after it stopped being funny. He then proceeds to mock the (at the time) ridiculous notion that ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had gone downhill or was plagiarizing ''The Simpsons''.
** The villainess Lullaby, who's a bleach-blonde slut with an absolutely atrocious singing voice, is a thematic representation of Music/BritneySpears, Creator/LindsayLohan and Creator/ParisHilton. Her fellow villainess Spectra is a thematic representation of revolutionary whackjobs like UsefulNotes/CheGuevara.
** Red describes his ''List Of People I Want To Punch In The Face'' as including: Heather Mills, Jimmy Fallon, UsefulNotes/RichardDawkins, Creator/MichaelMoore, Ward Churchill, Ann Coulter, Creator/JohnKricfalusi and Alex Rodriguez.
** Both Red and Alyssa's father Elliot go on separate rants about Alex Rodriguez, giving him nicknames such as A-Fraud and A-Choker-In-The-Playoffs while ridiculing Rodriguez's absurdly bloated $25-million a year salary.
** While watching a [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball soccer game]] on TV, Red and Cyrus laugh at the notion that what they deem "the most boring game on the planet" has provoked everything from riots to murders to political upheaval to wars. When Cyrus asks why they're watching it, Red snarks that sometimes he likes to remind himself why America [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution seceded from the British]] in the first place.
* A notable subversion occurs in Ultimate Sleepwalker's sister series ''[[FanFic/UltimateSpiderWoman Ultimate Spider-Woman: Change With The Light]]''. Mary Jane Watson loves the ''[[{{Literature/Twilight}} Twilight]]'' novels and reads them on a regular basis, but this is ''not'' used as a TakeThat against the Stephanie Meyer series. The depiction of the ''Twilight'' novels is entirely neutral, mentioned in passing a few times and otherwise ignored.

[[AC: ''Franchise/MassEffect'']]
* FanFic/MassVexations has a few of these, given that it's a ''Franchise/MassEffect'' self-insert with quite a bit of AuthorFilibuster in its lampshading. The two most prominent are barbs aimed against a troll that attacked a large portion of WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda's fanfiction.net fandom [[FanDumb because he disagreed with]] [[{{Shipping}} a pairing used in one person's story]], and a barb at film critic Armond White.
** The sequel adds [[Film/TheRoom Tommy Wiseau]] to the list of people that have had take thats in the Mass Vexations universe.

[[AC: ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'']]
* In ''FanFic/WingsToFly'', a number of characters discuss the concept of a War To End All Wars; Lady Une regards it as foolishness, while Lucrezia Noin says they last a generation at most and cites her family's history with the World Wars; victory at Vittorio in UsefulNotes/WW1 and later defeat at Beda Fomm in [=WW2=].
** Ironically, Lady Une appears to have a very low opinion of Trieze Kushrenada for leaving others with the task of creating the world he envisioned and choosing to die rather than help make it happen. This is in sharp contrast to their canon relationship.
** The "total pacifism" doctrine espoused by the show is occasionally raked over the coals as encouraging the use of unrealistically simple solutions to complex problems.
*** The opening lines of the story offer a subtle yet damning indictment of the doctrine: a government is the entity that can maintain a monopoly on the use of force and punish those who infringe it. Mariemaia's coup actually succeeded because the ESUN had forgotten that definition of "government" and could not protect itself or its citizens.

[[AC: Multiple]]
* The entire ''Fanfic/OfficialFanfictionUniversity'' concept, as well as the WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum, was created to write Take Thats at bad fanfic. Depending on the writer, they can still be entertaining stories, but if you don't think making fun of spelling errors is funny or have a higher-than-nonexistent tolerance of SlashFic, they can also come off as a little mean-spirited. That said, the first one, ''Fanfic/TheOfficialFanfictionUniversityOfMiddleEarth'', ''is'' quite funny and endearing despite the Take Thats, which is probably why the concept took off.

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'']]
* In ''Fanfic/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', the lawyer Estermann and judge Mullan briefly muse about the possibility of the changelings abandoning their warlike ways and ''sharing'' their love instead of stealing it.... before breaking out in [[IWasJustJoking derisive laughter]] and beginning to analyse how that would make no practical sense. That's a TakeThat against the actual series' episode ''Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E26ToWhereAndBackAgainPart2'', where the changelings are convinced [[spoiler:by Starlight and Thorax to do exactly that and, as a result, undergo a [[BrokenBase rather controversial]] magical EvolutionPowerUp]].
* ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureau'' has inspired the HateFic [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/31216/The-Conversion-Bureau%3A-Thus-Saith-The-Lord Thus Saith The Lord]], an ''extremely'' blatant attack on the entire premise of the fic. And it's nowhere near the only one that was this blatant.
** In addition, there are many, ''many'' Conversion Bureau [[HateFic hate fics]] which either [[DeconstructionFic deconstruct the universe]] or just go KillEmAll on the characters.
* ''FanFic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'' is a long DeconstructorFleet of everything about the TCB genre, culminating in many unapologetic Take Thats.
** An early chapter has Prime!Twilight Sparkle go off on a long-winded speech about how the typical TCB plot element of Equestria just appearing in the middle of one of Earth's oceans is not only scientifically impossible, but would also result in many problems of its own. On top of that, there's numerous magical problems as well - according to Twilight, it would require such an impractically large amount of magic that she says it's impossible.
-->'''Twilight''': [[LetMeGetThisStraight Is that what you're saying?]] That somepony popped Equestria out of our reality and crashed it onto his? How's that even meant to work? [[SciFiWritersHave/NoSenseOfMass Several trillion tons of continent]] [[ColonyDrop does not make a gentle impact on another world]], [[RealityEnsues not without mega-tsunamis and earthquakes that would level entire cities, followed by a dust cloud that would blanket the world in an artificial winter lasting decades!]] [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse And what about the world we leave behind, what about Equus?]] [[NoEndorHolocaust Would it just carry on spinning without a care, despite having a hole several-thousand-miles-across gouged out of the planet's crust?]] Even if you didn't breach the mantle, creating a supervolcano that would pull the planet inside-out, the change in mass and absence of the Princesses would throw the sun and moon out of their orbits, causing them to collide, or even worse, to impact with Equus itself! [[FridgeHorror Anypony – anything, left behind would die, horribly!]] Every griffon, every dragon, zebra, reindeer, whatever!
** Discord, during [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment the gag version]] of the chapter "The Writes of Passage", breaks down the fourth wall and says, "If you want characters to suddenly start acting out of character like this, go read a Chatoyance fic!"
** Another pot shot is leveled at Chatoyance, specifically at her story ''The PER: Michelson and Morely - The Speed of Right'', where a side character named Victor Kraber reveals that his children were ponified at their birthday party by TCB!Pinkie Pie working with PER agents, and [[DrivenToMadness he was]] ''[[PapaWolf not]]'' [[ItsPersonal at all happy]] [[AdultFear to find out]] about this. In fact, subsequent appearances and references to Kraber make mention of him killing swaths of PER agents, including one incident where he and his friend Kagan Burakgazi stabbed a PER "squire" named Nutmeg Morely to death [[CruelAndUnusualDeath with a ceramic rat]].
** Yet another middle finger is shot at Chatoyance in the ''Case Files'' side story, where it's revealed the founder of the PER was a [[MisanthropeSupreme misanthropic]] [[MadDoctor doctor]] named Jacqueline Dionna Reitman. In other words, she shares the same initials as Chatoyance's real life name (Jennifer Diane Reitz). For that matter, the names even sound phonetically similar.
*** An unintentional example occurred in the chapter detailing the Human Liberation Front, where a former HLF member named Andrew Silas recounts having known a few trans people that ended up regretting going through with their sex change operations (while the newfoals ''never'' stopped telling other people how great ponification is no matter how long it's been since they were transformed). There is the fact that Chatoyance once infamously put up a "support" website for transpeople advising them to ''cheat'' on psychiatric tests that would determine whether they were real transsexuals and thus in need of surgery. [[FridgeHorror And there probably are people out there that took her advice to heart]]. Co-author Doctor Fluffy retroactively turned it into a straight TakeThat later on, [[AscendedFanon because he thought it was hilarious]].
*** The PHL chapter has TCB!Lyra as a mouthpiece against Chatoyance's depiction of Earth as a dystopia.
--->'''Lyra:''' (to Aegis) I've seen most humans, and I've visited many places all over Earth. Let me tell you this: they're not living in some dystopia where everything is owned by a greedy minority and every religion is some corrupt scam church like so many newfoals claim! Sure, it isn't perfect, but it's not as though they're riddled with kill-happy criminals, murderers, terrorist fanatics, and whatever else you can think of! They seem happy!
** The ''Starvation'' side story is set in a dirty dystopian version of Rio de Janeiro that's reminiscent of Chatoyance's dystopian vision of Earth in her TCB stories, complete with overpopulated slums, mass murders and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin rampant starvation]]. However, it's made abundantly clear that the [[AdvancingWallOfDoom barrier]] and the Solar Empire's campaign is very much responsible for turning Rio and many other places on earth into disease-riddled hellhole slums and {{Wretched Hive}}s.
** There's also the pony Catseye, a "white unicorn pony with an orange-pink mane and gold-rimmed glasses". This image is a dead-on match for Chatoyance's profile picture and her avatar on Website/FimFictionDotNet. Not only does she [[MisanthropeSupreme hate humans]] as well as [[AbsoluteXenophobe the other races]] living on Equus (to the point that [[FantasticRacism she considers only ponies to be pure and good]]), but there are also quick blurbs in her introductory scene in the main story that her prejudices extend to half-pony hybrids of other species, and that she herself is some kind of hybrid and [[BoomerangBigot hates that about herself]], taking great measures to keep her heritage hidden. This is a not-so-subtle reference to the fact that Chatoyance is a transwoman who has a reputation for coming off as [[DoesNotLikeMen rather misandric]].
** In one chapter, Prime!Celestia showing a distaste for eugenics is a subtle TakeThat directed at Chatoyance, where one story states that [[GodModeSue her Celestia]] actually used eugenics to [[OurElvesAreBetter make the ponies better]] by breeding out any "undesirable" traits.
** It's very easy to miss, but in "Training Days: The First Month", one of Catseye's followers considers using the word 'adamant' in their group's name. Chatoyance once wrote a story called ''The Reasonably Adamant Down With Celestia Newfoal Society'', a [[TakeThatCritics none-too-subtle potshot leveled at her critics]] and critics of the TCB universe in general.
** In "Training Days: Second Month", Prime!Discord makes a couple quick potshots at conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza and the notorious evangelist/actor Kirk Cameron.
** While it was completely unintentional on the author's part, the ''Last Train from Oblivion'' side story reveals that the ponification potion only recognizes the biological sex of the human converts (meaning a transwoman would get turned into a stallion and a transman into a mare). As co-author [[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/207968/last-train-from-oblivion#comment/5701150 Kizuna Tallis pointed out]], it could be read as a potshot at Chatoyance, herself a transwoman who's sometimes expressed {{Otherkin}} tendencies. Making this funnier (or more disturbing) is that the transwoman that this is demonstrated on was named Jason when she was male... which is widely believed to be Chatoyance's birth name. Author [=TB3=] later clarified that it was all coincidental, but Kizuna, Doctor Fluffy and Vox Adam all agreed it was hilarious nonetheless.
* The ultimate potshot is leveled at Chatoyance in the story "The REAL Conversion Bureau"; this is because a character named Cat's Eye is quietly removed from a position of power, drugged up to the gills and locked away in the rubber room for calling for the mass ponification of the humans that kept showing up thanks to a NegativeSpaceWedgie. After all, only a small fraction of them were dickish enough to warrant [[BodyHorror the process]]; all that needed to be done was get most of them to fit in was to change the gaudy art projects they called money into good, honest bits and send them on their merry way.
* The FanFic ''FanFic/TheConversionBureauWorldsWhereItWouldntWork'', involves "Xlestia" and the TCB going to other fictional worlds only for their attempts to convert the local population to end '''horribly'''.
** The first reader suggestions chapter end with a [[MoodWhiplash fairly jarring one]] to "Fall Of Equestria".
** There are many jabs at the very idea of the "Tyrantlestia" interpretation. Including, but not limited to, portraying her childish and hypocritical, comparing her to canon Celestia, and of course, having her plans [[EpicFail fail miserably]], get her and Equestria killed, if not worse, and/or having other characters telling her off.
*** The SeriesFinale is even a ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'', between Tyrantlestia and Canon!Celestia.
* ''Fanfic/ShinzakurasAllAmericanGirl'' briefly mentions a movie called ''The Converters'' made by the speciesist director named Catseye. To add further insult, the film is depicted as a common propaganda film for the Purehooves (a pro-Equestriani/anti-human hate group).
* Numerous examples in ''FanFic/DiariesOfAMadman'', from comments aimed at other works showcasing humanity negatively, to taking shots at the plot of the show itself.
* ''Fanfic/MyBravePonyStarfleetMagic'':
** Titan blowing up Equestria and the author turning the main cast into losers who can't do anything without the Unicornicopians' help may be one, taking the RevengeFic nature of the story into account.
** A more explicit example is given later on. In a flashback chapter, we see the Grand Ruler as a teenager being constantly bullied by a unicorn with the name Dusk Shine. Said character is based on someone who posted on fimchan and asked the author about various {{plot hole}}s.
** The entirety of Chapter 5 of Starfleet Magic 3 is a prolonged attack on all his critics.
** ''Fanfic/FallOfStarfleetRebirthOfFriendship'', [[RecursiveFic in turn]], is a big one to the fic in general.
* In FanFic/PrinceStaghornsKnownWorld, [[https://www.fimfiction.net/group/199698/the-known-world/thread/271866/locations-countries-if-you-can-call-this-useless-jag-of-land-one-tricornucopia the Kingdom of Tricornucopia]], home of the amphibious tricorns, is one to ''Fanfic/MyBravePonyStarfleetMagic'' itself. Tricornucopia’s immortal Grand Ruler Celesto styles himself as a living god and “rightful master of all things under heaven”, ruling with absolute power over a country that presents itself as the greatest of nations, defended by a grandiose Star Fleet. In reality, Tricornucopia’s an isolationist North Korea-esque dictatorship centered on Celesto’s cult of personality, the country itself a useless jag of swampland on the coast of the Badlands, home to nothing of any interest (not even the weird fauna found everywhere else in the world) and with no imports or exports. Celesto is a coward and a bully, and both he and his country are complete non-entities in world politics (although Equestria maintains an embassy to help oppressed Tricornucopians flee their country), and Star Fleet is just Celesto’s most blindly loyal and ruthless soldiers. To add insult to injury, tricorns as a species are descending into nonsapience.
* ''Fanfic/OfMaresAndMagic'' had some fun with the creepy fan-made game "VideoGame/StoryOfTheBlanks".
* The author for ''Fanfic/PinkPersonalHellAndAlteringFate'' has taken a habit to referring to Hasbro as "Ha$bro".
* ''FanFic/ThePowersOfHarmony'' takes a stab at a major plot point of ''FanFic/TheImmortalGame'' (Celestia manipulatively training Twilight to be the greatest warrior ever) when Luna asks Celestia if Twilight knows any offensive magic:
-->'''Celestia''': If she does, she didn't learn it from me. We covered a few theories on why certain spells have been declared forbidden, but it's not like I was prepping her for war. The next thing I'm going to hear you say is that I was secretly turning her into a brilliant military strategist so that she'd rise up and become the ultimate weapon.
-->'''Luna''': Now that’s just absurd.
* ''Fanfic/TheUnexpectedLoveLifeOfDuskShine'' contains more than a few, but probably the most notable are the two that Vinyl Scratch and Pipsqueak deliver. You see, Pipsqueak was raised by his parents to be a teen pop star, releasing a song loved by fillies everywhere that went by the name of "[[Music/JustinBieber Baby]]." And he hated it. Likewise, Vinyl didn't have the singing talent, so her parents invested in autotune to make a video of her singing "[[Music/RebeccaBlack Friday]]."
* There exist a ''lot'' of huge Take Thats to Cupcakes which the fandom ''hates'' it; it's a very hateable fic, ranging from the gentle (Fanfic/TheLightInTheDarkness) to most of the things described here:
** ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/10657/Cupcakes-A$$-Kicking Cupcakes A$$ Kicking]]'' is a ''massive'' jab at Grimdark fics and their writers.
** ''Fanfic/{{Progress}}'' makes a jab at the grimdark as fuck ''Fanfic/{{Cupcakes}}''.
** So did FanFic/RainboomsAndRoyalty's sequel [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/68962/1/hot-heads-cold-hearts-and-nerves-of-steel/chapter-1 Hot Heads, Cold Hearts, and Nerves Of Steel]], (Yes... it's a LongTitle) when the bushwoolies mention that they wanted to bake Pip, Alula, and Dinky into pastries. Pinkie's reaction borders on BerserkButton-pressingly angry:
--->'''Pinkie Pie''': “Trying to bake ponies into pastries? That's disgusting AND stupid! Who would ever even THINK of doing a thing like that?!”
** ''Fanfic/AllAmericanGirl'' mentions a "HumansAreBastards" horror film called ''[[Fanfic/TheConversionBureau The Converters]]''. The makers of which nearly got sued for libel.
*** The fanfic also includes a Take That at [[{{FanFic/Cupcakes}} a certain infamous gorefic]]:
---->'''Discord''': "Would you care for a cupcake? Never cared for them myself. Too bloody."
* ''Fanfic/{{Hands}}'': At one point, Andrew and Nurse Redheart are discussing literature, and Andrew states his hatred for ''Literature/TheCatcherInTheRye'', calling it boring and deriding the protagonist as a whiny hypocrite.
* ''Fanfic/TheRiseOfDarthVulcan'': The titular VillainProtagonist serves to [[AccusationFic point out flaws in the setting that fans of the show have ever noticed and complained about, as well as flaws in several versions of Equestria in fanfiction]], mostly regarding the actions of the Mane Six and Celestia, and how Celestia is perceived by the fandom. That being said, at one point he also takes the time to deride ''Literature/TheHobbit'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', seeing both as overrated and running on plot holes. That last part, however, is not the author's opinion, but the character's; the author is fond of Lord of the Rings, and the VillainProtagonist is an arrogant teenaged bully who thinks he's more clever and knowledgeable than he actually is, and his ignorance regarding why the Eagles didn't take the fellowship to Mordor may actually be a stealth jab against pretentious people that have levied those complaints before.
* ''Fanfic/TheTwoSidesOfDaringDo'': AK Yearling mentions a past adventure she had that closely resembles the plot of ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull''. When she published a Daring Do book about it, her fans thought it sucked.
* [[Fanfic/AftermathOfTheGames Integration]]: Sunset, both Twilights, and Dog Spike all react to disgust and horror seeing [[RuleThirtyFour fan art of Daydream Shimmer and Midnight Sparkle doing things to each other.]] Sunset also complained earlier that despite humans having every computer in the world connected the majority of people just use it to complain about tv shows, a certain example being not liking the newborn (an obvious take on the recent real life fan reaction to the birth of Shining and Cadence's daughter Flurry Heart).
* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/329176/the-origins-of-sentient-life-as-narrated-by-discord The Origins of Sentient Life as narrated by Discord]] briefly mentions that {{AOLon}} of ''ComicBook/{{Marville}}'' origin was destroyed. Discord comments that no one really should care that it was destroyed.

[[AC: ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'']]
* In ''Fanfic/ATeachersGlory'', combines this with an aversion of NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead, in which Asuma and Anko bash Kakashi, or better said, his potential teaching style (which is what he did in canon), who had just been accidentally killed by Team 7 during the bell test:
-->'''Anko''': Imagine Kakashi trying to deal with this bunch!
-->'''Asuma''': He'd have shown up late, given them minimal instruction, wandered off to read his porn, ignore the girl and the Uzumaki, and tried to pretend Sasuke was Obito as a young genin.
-->'''Anko''': And ruined the boy, alternating indulgence, attention, ignoring cries for help and applying misunderstood discipline. He'd been such a prodigy in his own that had no idea how normal kids develop. How many potentially good teams did he fail, five, six? He was a good jonin, and sometimes fun at a party. But he wasn't cut to teach anyone anything. Of his thousand stolen jutsus, how many would he have taught to his students, if he'd ever allowed any to pass?
* The {{Omake}} at the end of chapter 86 of the AU fanfiction ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7427510/86/The_Greatest_Thing_Youll_Ever_Learn The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn]]'' is one long Take That at {{Uke}}!Iruka, PurpleProse, GratuitousJapanese, {{Wimpification}}, PettingZooPeople, MisterSeahorse and YaoiFangirls. The last part also counts as SelfDeprecation, since the fic is written by a yaoi fangirl ''for'' yaoi fangirls.
* The entirety of the oneshot ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5249117/1/Incense Incense]]'' is how [[FauxActionGirl pathetic]] the kunoichi from the [[FanNickname Konoha 11]] are.
--> Impatient, I reached over and pulled down the quilt, revealing my stunning, immaculate, Adonis-like, statuesque, perfect husband. I wasn't quite sure when we had gotten married – probably about the same time I had gotten pregnant – but I was fairly certain we were married.
%%* In ''Naruto Veangance Revelaitons'', while describing Ronan, Ronan, who is the narrator, compares himself to JustinBieber, but says "i dont liek him tho [[ClusterFBomb FUCK HIM]] HE SUCKS [[AuthorTract ALL MODERN MUSIC FUCKING SUCKS]]". [[EstablishingSeriesMoment This scene gives you some idea of what the rest of the fic is like]] and it only gets worse from there...
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10574684/22/Naruto-The-Gamer-Filese Naruto: The Gamer Files]]'', when Sasuke reveals the genjutsu used to weed out the hopeless prior to the Chuunin Exams, Kin outright calls him a [[WhatAnIdiot complete dumbass]] for making more competition. After Sasuke gives his name and boasts about beating her in the exams, Kin insists his name is dumbass until he proves otherwise.
* ''Fanfic/NewChance'' has LOTS of them, but worth mention is an omake that makes extensive use of BlandNameProduct to point out all the plot holes and incosistencies in the manga that many fans complain about.
** There is one against Jiraiya when he's introduced, with Minato beating him for neglecting his duties as Naruto's godfather and not taking care of him all those years, as well as the poor training he gave Naruto during the timeskip in the original timeline.
** Kushina goes to great lengths (up to threatening to ''castrate'' the Hokage (Jiraiya) and Iruka) to make sure Naruto doesn't end up in Team 7 again. She considers Team 7 from the original timeline "an utter disaster".
** Also, when Naruto returns to Konoha after playing a big part in repelling the Iwa-Oto invasion, he finds the villagers outside and laud him as a hero. Kushina notes that this scene [[LampshadeHanging is similar to when Naruto defeated Pain in the original timeline]], except that "there is no Sakura congratulating Naruto with a punch while the girl who always believed in him has to watch in the background."
** When Naruto learns that [[ItMakesSenseInContext they made a(n admittedly campy) superhero show based on Shino]], Naruto wonders if he could convince the same producers to make a series about him, based on the data he has on the original timeline...but discards the idea, guessing that [[SpotlightStealingSquad the series would end up completely focusing on the Uchihas.]]
** Like ''FanFic/TheWorldsGreatestChuninExamTeam'' below, there's another one to the infamous ninth OVA in which Naruto is banned from using Sage Mode in the Chunin Exam. Before the last phase of the Chunin Exam begins, Jiraiya proceeds to ban not just Sage Mode, but Bloodline Limits, specialized clan techniques, summons, Chakra Gates, animal companions, poisons, weapons and tools other than kunai and shuriken, and bijuu powers, for the sake of having a "fair fight". After the initial shock, Jiraiya reveals he was just joking, and that only a retard who doesn't get the true meaning of the Chunin Exam (a war simulation between villages) would do that.
* ''[[http://ficwad.com/story/234226 The Promise]]'' gives a quick shot to ''[[Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie Naruto The Last]]'' when Hanabi talks about how obsessed Hinata is with Naruto.
-->'''Hanabi:''' I’m telling you Naruto, if there was a genjutsu to make you fall in love with her, then she’d use it in a heartbeat. It’ll probably make you into the type of scumbag that would say he only liked Sakura because of Sasuke or something. Even I wouldn’t want you to claim that.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10814551/1/Sorry-s-Not-Enough Sorry's Not Enough]]'' gives one to Naruto scolding Boruto for acting [[GenerationXerox just like he did as a child]] when his reaction to his son Haku trying to paint to Hokage Monument is to take the rest of the day off and spend it with his family. Being Hokage is important, but being a father and a husband is more important.
* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5193644/1/Time-Braid Time Braid]]'' has one to ''FanFic/ChuninExamDay'' in the form of Sakura's number one rule: Don't act like a psycho. Especially noting that "spending years cutting out Sasuke's eye every loop" violates her "Don't act like a psycho" rule.
* ''FanFic/TheWorldsGreatestChuninExamTeam'' gives one to a Filler episode where Naruto retook the Chuunin Exams but was banned from using Sage Mode and lost as a result, costing him a promotion. Not only does Tsunade immediately slam the idea of making a rule that only affects a single ninja, but also points out the precedent it'd set, potentially causing future exams to ban Bloodlines or Clan Techniques. Besides, even ''if'' Naruto lost, no one would deny an experienced ninja who's also a Sage and possibly the WorldsStrongestMan a promotion for failing to beat up a few genin.
** On top of the possibility of banning Bloodlines, Tsunade mentions that the Sharingan is way more overpowered than Sage Mode, as it gives its user [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands new powers whenever the user needs them]].
** There's also another one against the "Naruto retakes the Chunin Exam, but end up fighting surprisingly powerful opponents" FandomSpecificPlot. The story builds up a certain team from Kiri as a threat, who are more powerful than they look, and want to kill Naruto in revenge for Minato killing their parents during the Third Shinobi War. When they finally are about to fight, they reveal themselves and how powerful they are...only to be defeated by Killer B (one of Naruto's teammates) in less than fifteen seconds in a very anticlimatic way. Even if they were more powerful than the average genin, they had no chance to defeat an S-class ninja, much less three of them. To drive the point further, the author mentioned in a note at the end of the chapter how much he hates this FandomSpecificPlot as well as [[GodModeSue superpowerful OCs]], and the fact that he created these characters in an incredibly lazy way: he used a japanese random name generator to choose their names, as well as writing "Naruto OC" on Google Image Search to choose their appearance.

[[AC: ''Series/{{NCIS}}'']]
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8935062/1/Shards-To-A-Whole Shards To A Whole]]'', when Tony and Ziva officially [[TheyDo get together]], Tony asks Tim (who enjoys an active if [[CasualKink mildly kinky]] sex life with Abby) for advice when Ziva mentions that she is interested in "ropes and things". When Tony mentions "this book they're making into a movie soon," Tim immediately replies, "No, don't go reading ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey''," saying that he and Abby read it and found it unintentionally hilarious but not even remotely sexy.
** This becomes a BrickJoke in a subsequent chapter set about 2 years later (the story's a bit of a DoorStopper), when Tim is decorating a "harem" themed bedroom for himself and Abby.
--->'''Tony''': So what, Palmer and Breena have the real bedroom and this is your 'red room'?\\
'''Tim''': I told you not to read the book.\\
'''Tony''': I didn't. Watched the movie. Waste of eleven dollars.

[[AC: ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'']]
* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': [[http://forum.evageeks.org/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=8478&sid=a172da98a74a80f53a68a227b0c60163 Chapter 6]] devoted a loooong paragraph to explain that Gendo's strategy used to fight Bardiel in canon was ''incredibly'' stupid:
-->''Shinji gripped the controls harder. He didn't like this. They wouldn't give him any information about what they were about to face, and worse, he couldn't even see his friends. His father had ordered them to deploy in a line, not across the axis of advance, but parallel to it, ensuring that they'd meet the enemy one by one instead of together. They were out there in front of him, somewhere, hidden from his sight behind the small hills and ridges of the area, but in such a way that none of them could cover the others until they'd fallen back from where they were located now. For all the cover and supporting fire he could offer, Shinji might as well have been back in Tokyo-3. He knew he was no general, but it made no sense to him. He really wished Misato was in command. Asuka was at the front of the line, in the position of maximum danger, and he couldn't even see her, much less support and protect her in a fight.''
* The fic ''New Champion Evangelion'' is one long truly {{Facepalm}}-inducing TakeThat against Shinji as a character, intended to show [[FixFic what would happen if]] a "[[GodModeSue MANLY NON]] [[JerkSue PUSSY guy]]" took his place. A more specific example when Ramiel (which is never named) is described as "A HUGE BLOCKY THING IT SEEMD KIND OF LIKE A REFRENCE TO THAT [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey SHITTY MOVIE]] FROM THA 60S THAT WAS REALLY FUCKING BORING I THINK IT WAS DIRECTDED BY THAT GUY [[Creator/StanleyKubrick CUBICROCK]] OR SOMETUING"
* ''FanFic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K'' contains a TakeThat against ''Fanfic/NeonExodusEvangelion''.
-->"I wanted a Shinji that could go; DJ Croft? Who's that?"

[[AC: ''Manga/OnePiece'']]
* In ''Fanfic/MarieDSuesseAndTheMysteryNewPirateAge'', there are quite a few, especially against MarySue characters and ''One Piece'' fanfic cliches. For example, Mar goes up against Hana and Slashfang, two obvious {{Parody Sue}}s who are obvious copies of Luffy and Zoro, and who [[FreudianExcuse are driven by]] a desire to prove that their AbusiveParents were wrong about them. Even though the two are overpowered by ''One Piece'' standards and Mar has virtually no combat potential whatsoever, Slashfang dies because his Devil Fruit power is impossible, and Hana is knocked overboard, with her Water Devil Fruit powers not overriding the SuperDrowningSkills granted by the Devil Fruit.

[[AC: ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'']]
* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has several in story, in omake, or in expanded universe.
** During the Whitney Oneshot, Whitney fights a Muk with one of her Miltank and harshly defeats it, stating that she'd never lose to a Muk. The Author confirms this was a potshot aimed at Ashes of the Past, though he does clarify he likes the fic overall.
** The Author also commented during the Gary oneshot that he believes Pokemon Anime XY was better than Shudo's run.
** One omake has a potshot against the ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' series for its excessive reliance on multiplayer.
** In an omake from the Ketchumverse, Bloodline Ash and Ranger Ash arrive in the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' universe, which is explicitly stated to have the rule of "everything must revolve around Bella Swan." Since the two of them don't worship the ground she walks on and can't be punished for their "transgression" by the laws of the universe, their presence causes a reality-breaking paradox which results in the place falling apart. No points for guessing what the author is trying to say about the series.
** The Argenta one-shot is a rather big one towards competitive battling (which in the more recent years features less and less variety, with most players using only a handful of Pokemon with the same moves), and Smogon in particular (for encouraging this mindset). Though it's softened somewhat in the end with the message that everybody should be free to choose and use their preferred Pokemon, even if it's from the strongest tiers.
** Belladonna was partly based on an incarnation of Franchise/HarryPotter from a fanfiction called "The Ilvermorny Champion". This version of the Boy Who Lived had a bad habit of doing some awful things to those who hurt his friends and family, so the author created a character with a similar mindset whose actions are portrayed as wrong.
** The Falkner oneshot has a very subtle one towards the use of [[OlympusMons Legendary Pokémon]] in competitive battling (and most likely Tobias as well): when Satsuki asks Falkner what does he plan to do once he catches Ho-Oh and Lugia, he assures her that he won't take them to the Pokémon League and "use them to crush the dreams of some hapless kid half [his] age".
** Many jokes of the first chapter of the Wild Boy For Sinnoh take potshots at Bidoof.
** The first Ketchumverse Omake suggests that all the Worlds where the Pokemon Coma Theory is a thing have been taken over by 'the Ashs of Darkness' as part of a evil Multiversal Empire.
** The first part of Ash's DreamSequence in Chapter 24 has a TakeThat towards Betrayal-fics that are common in the Pokemon fandom.
** The April Fools 2017 chapter takes its time to be a TakeThat against ExecutiveMeddling.
** Giselle Interlude contains one against those who insist that you don't capitalize Pokemon Species names.
** The Clair Interlude has a potshot aimed at LightNovel/PocketMonstersTheAnimation, specifically at the idea of three losses in a row leading to a gym closing down. The Resetverse itself lacks this provision (too many losses are bad, but it takes a lot more than three in a row and is not unsympathetic to scenarios that affect performance), and when Clair jokingly suggests that the three losses rule is in place one of her uncle snaps, saying they "don't live in some silly universe where three straight losses would lose the family gym".
* ''Fanfic/AProfessorAndAStudent'' has one aimed at the infamous G.S Ball, referring to it as 'The premier example of a failed research experiment'.

[[AC: ''Franchise/PowerRangers'']]
* ''FanFic/PowerRangersGPX'' has several, some of them humorous, some of them not so much. There's one bit early on where the main characters trash the pizza they're eating and ''Anime/CodeGeass'' as well. The fic also takes shots at the franchise it was inspired by, calling the show a "[[MerchandiseDriven twenty-minute toy commercial]]".

[[AC: ''Anime/PrettyCure'']]
* In ''FanFic/PrettyCureHeavyMetal'', Shugo brings up the words you can't say on TV, ArsonMurderAndJaywalking-style: "The only words that can't be spoken on television are the Seven Dirty Words, Goddamn, and [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Muhammad]]."

[[AC: ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'']]
* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/4924735/chapters/11300059 Prelude to Caribbean Rim]]'', none of a Mexican bar's patrons care when Madoka pulls out a gun "because, seriously, it’s Mexico".

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'']]
* The fan fic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8021691/1/Potty_Mouthed_Pops Potty Mouthed Pops]]'' did a not-so-subtle jab at ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' by having Benson and Skips mentally express their displeasure of watching the show. Pops, on the other hand, liked it.

[[AC: ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'']]
* ''Fanfic/{{Emergence}}'':
** After Sam comments that he doesn't think the show RWBY is that good, Cliff points out Sam loves ''Film/TheExpendables'' and proceeds to blast its shallow plot and over-reliance on action and explosions.
** Blake uses the alias Bella in high school, only for her classmates to laugh at her for having the same name as the main character of ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''. Blake is annoyed as she doesn't like Twilight either. Later, Weiss says it is a piece of shit.
** After watching Season 2, Weiss finds Neptune repulsive and doesn't understand why her animated counterpart likes him.
* In ''FanFic/WizardOfShips'', Ozpin takes a jab at the popular fan theory that he let Jaune into Beacon Academy because he 'saw his potential'.
-->''[in response to Jaune suggesting it]'' Ozpin burst out laughing. "Hahahahahahahahaha *snort* Ahahahahahahahahahahaha! Oh, dear Monty, I haven't laughed like that in a long time. Thank you, Mr. Arc, I needed that."

[[AC: ''Franchise/SailorMoon'']]
* In FanFic/BeautifulDestroyerSailorMoon, Ami draws a picture of a female Ranma Saotome [[FukuFic dressed as a Sailor Senshi]], declares that it is stupid and immediately destroys it.

[[AC: ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'']]
* Netraptor's DoorStopper series of ''SonicTheHedgehog'' fanfiction [[http://www.netraptor.org/fanfiction/viewseries.php?seriesid=1 "The Netraptor Sonicverse"]], contains a few generally subtle ones, generally towards the [[FanDumb Sonic]] [[BrokenBase fandom]]. Perhaps one of the more notable examples would be Amy's subplot in "In Pursuit of Revenge", where she attempts to play OperationJealousy by attemting to go out with three different people, Tails, [[EnsembleDarkhorse Shadow,]] and [[CrackPairing Metal Sonic.]] Tails goes on one awkward date, but really is more interested with machines than anything else. Shadow lets her stay with him for awhile, but is far more busy with his own subplot and quickly grows tired of her. Metal Sonic (who had long since performed a HeelFaceTurn), turns her down on the spot, albiet in the least rude way of the three, as he is far more interested in his subplot and taking care of [[MoralityPet his chao.]]
* ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' has several examples in both its setting and its prose.
** The ''entire Angel Federation'' is a ''[[UpToEleven truly enormous]]'' TakeThat to Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. Especially the Emirate of Mecca, which is basically a damning insult against Muslim theocracies in general and Islam itself as a whole. It's such a huge TakeThat, in fact, that it sometimes [[UnfortunateImplications crosses into borderline racism]] - the Jews and Muslims are depicted as groups of FuturePrimitive brown-skinned HumanAliens who prefer fighting each other all the time over petty tribal squabbles, for example. All three countries represent the author's beefs with their religions, even though the recent rewrite balanced their depiction by [[BlackAndGrayMorality making them the gray to the Demons' black]].
** The pre-rewrite versions had numerous TakeThat moments towards 4Kids Entertainment, who originally dubbed ''Sonic X''. With the recent bankruptcy of 4Kids Entertainment, the author decided the insults weren't needed anymore and removed them.

[[AC: ''Franchise/StarTrek'']]
* ''Fanfic/BaitAndSwitchSTO'' mentions that the USS ''Bajor'' has a completely redesigned warp core whose ejection system relies on the deadman switch principle, referencing the inevitable FailsafeFailure in the canon shows.
* ''Fanfic/TheHeadhunt'':
** Eleya is overheard ranting at somebody who wants to have the ''Bajor'' be used as the set for a movie, which meant to poke fun at one of the other prompts in the literary challenge ''The Headhunt'' was written for. The author mentioned in a forum post he couldn't see any of his characters letting that happen.
** A pair of them directed at the VocalMinority wanting to see ''Constitution''-class and ''Miranda''-class starships playable at endgame in ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'', an idea to which the author is vocally opposed on the forums. The fact that the ''Miranda''-class USS ''Brisbane'' is still in one piece despite being over a century old is described as miraculous, while the USS ''Bajor'', a ''Galaxy''-class starship launched in 2409, delivers a massive CurbStompBattle to [[spoiler:the USS ''Enterprise''-A]], even after letting the enemy shoot first.
* ''Fanfic/ReimaginedEnterprise'': A few aimed at the canon ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' for which the work is a FixFic.
** The rest of the crew can't stand this "Faith of the Heart" song Rocia listens to...
** In "The Giant's Foot", Mayweather pretends not to know the name Rigel in order to get a rise out of Al-Hamdani, who points out it is one of the most well-known stars in Earth's night sky. This being a reference to how the canon pilot episode "Broken Bow" bizarrely seemed to think Rigel was an ''alien'' name that none of the human crew had heard of before.
* "Fanfic/ShakedownShenanigans" aims one at ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'' regarding how stupid it was to launch an unfinished starship.
* "Fanfic/SolaereSsiunHnaifvdaenn" has one aimed at another ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' Literary Challenge author, for writing his captain stealing a Hazari vessel that responded to her distress signal. Tovan tells Jaleh in passing that the ''Eireth nnea Ortaimai''[[note]]lit. "Authority of Justice"[[/note]] just issued an arrest warrant on charges of piracy and war crimes, and Jaleh derisively wonders aloud [[InsaneAdmiral who the hell made that guy an admiral]].

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'']]
* In Fanfic/KeepersOfTheElements, the author makes jabs at Literature/{{Twilight}} and Music/RebeccaBlack more than once. She also has one that takes a jab at the show JonAndKatePlusEight.
---> '''Deanna''': Yep. My boys Tony, Adrian and Eric are identical triplets. After that experience, what sane person would want more?
---> '''Heather''': Jon and Kate?
---> '''Deanna''': Like I said- what ''sane'' person would.

[[AC: ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'']]
* ''Fanfic/{{Luminosity}}'': Edward and [[AlternateUniverseFic rational]]!Bella discuss what to name their child. They want to root her to the family, since she's going to be so rare a species that she may only see someone else like her once. The obvious way to do so is to combine Bella and Edward's mothers' names, but they decide that [[Literature/{{Twilight}} any combination of Renée and Esme]] sounds like a Franchise/{{Pokemon}}.

[[AC: ''TheVampireDiaries'']]
* In first chapter of "The High Road", Damon says Katherine is like [[Series/JerseyShore Snooki]]...with fangs
** Later in the same chapter, upon learning Caroline is watching Jersey Shore, Jill notes how it could be something worse like ''Series/TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager''.

[[AC: ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'']]
* In ''FanFic/TheAgeOfDusk'', there's a fair few to both the parent work and other works:
** ''Warhammer 40000'' writer Matt Ward takes a few whacks courtesy of ''The Age of Dusk''. One of the more notable examples is having [[CreatorsPet Kaldor Draigo]] become of the highest Angyl Princes of the Star Father (the God-Emperor who has died and become a [[GodIsEvil ruthless]] [[EldritchAbomination Chaos God]] [[LawfulEvil of Order]]) while the other Grey Knights oppose the Star Father, claiming he is an affront to the Emperor and all he stood for. Oh, and the famous saying that Matt Ward only created Draigo because he wasn't allowed to bring Roboute Guilliman back to life? In this story, Roboute Guilliman does just that, [[spoiler:gives Draigo the asskicking of a lifetime and then banishes his sorry ass back to the Warp]].
** One of Matt Ward's other poorly-received creations also gets this treatment. The Dreadknight was a sort of HumongousMecha introduced in Codex: Grey Knights, and while powerful, the model was mocked for having an exposed head for the driver. In this story, [[spoiler:Brother-Captain Stern]] is killed piloting one with a single headshot from a lasgun, probably the weakest weapon in the entire setting.
** There's also a big one to ''Literature/TheSalvationWar''. A war is fought between [[spoiler:the Tau Empire and their allies]] against the Chaos Realm of the Terran Hells. The allies are convinced the war will be a cakewalk as they are armed with modern tanks and energy weapons while the Daemons are armed with spears, bows, axes and other Iron-age weapons. [[RockBeatsLaser They are wrong in that assumption]].[[

[[AC: ''VideoGame/{{X}}'']]
* The ''Xtended Terran Conflict'' GameMod for ''[[VideoGame/{{X}} X3: Terran Conflict]]'' has a story on its InUniverse news agencies about a new cult of [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Split]] who believe that "the Eve" is coming, an apocalypse that will cause the collapse of all governments and start people [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder constantly murdering and backstabbing each other]] without a second thought. Though partly a reference to the canonical shutdown of the games' PortalNetwork after ''X3: Albion Prelude'', it's also a swipe at ''VideoGame/EVEOnline'', whose player culture draws intense dislike from ''X'' fans.

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/YinYangYo'']]
* [=PenGator3=] has Michael Eisner attacked savagely on three separate occasions so far in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5626292 Re: Yin Yang Who?]].

[[AC: ''Franchise/YuGiOh'']]
* ''FanFic/YuGiOhTheThousandYearDoor'' and its ''[[TheRemake Redux]]'' have a few:
** The original version had Wanda Underwood, who was a fanmade sister to Weevil Underwood. The majority of her dialogue involved trashing the character, and every single conversation she was involved in ultimately led to Weevil being bashed.
** Chico considers the "Palace of Heart" card to be a bad remake of ''VideoGame/Splatterhouse''. He is embarrassed after saying that since the game had a remake that flopped.
** Grodus levels an unsubtle one directed at ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' by completely disagreeing with its opinion that a "children's card game" being SeriousBusiness is, by villain standards, a bad thing. [[BondVillainStupidity This is despite the fact that many villains and enemy mooks woudn't need to play a usually luck-based game]] to take out the heroes due to their power, particularly when they [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim don't need them alive anymore]].
** Grodus levels yet another take that against fans who feel the heroes cheat just as much as the villains do by pointing out that his associates got their cards from evil sorcerers working from Graz'zt. In other words, what the author feels is exactly what characters like Dartz, Saiou, and the like did with their powerful cards. This is despite said fans' theories claiming the protagonists stack their decks and rig their draws in their favor, which itself would be cheating.
* ''Yu-Gi-OH: Legacy of the Sorcerer Kings'' treated atheists as AlwaysChaoticEvil, including the BigBad who was only damned because he refused to believe in higher powers.

Back to TakeThat.
