[[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]].

[[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.

[[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]] and Harry/Hermione, among other things.
** The entire fic could be considered a TakeThat aimed at everyone who writes WishFulfilment 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'.
* ''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 Mane6 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.
* ''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 + KingdomHearts FanFic: the bad guys blow up the world of [[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."
* ''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.
* ''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 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]]

[[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 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.
* ''LightAndDarkTheAdventuresOfDarkYagami'' has one directed at [[TVTropes this very site.]]
** 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 [[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 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: ''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: ''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...

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

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

[[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 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 on.

[[AC: ''Anime/GundamWing'']]
* 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 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: ''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 [[FailOSuckyname 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 this ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11136250/1/Rage]]'' 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.

[[AC: ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'']]
* ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled'' has a chapter which makes fun of 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/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.

[[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 [[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 FernGully! 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 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 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/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, Creator/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 [[TheBeautifulGame 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 [[BiasSteamroller 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: Multiple]]
* The entire OfficialFanfictionUniversity concept, as well as the 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'']]
* ''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 Twilight Sparkle go off on a long-winded speech about how the typical TCB plot element of Equestria just appearing in the middle of the ocean 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 a 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, particularly 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]].
** 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. For that matter, the names even sound 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 ''fool'' psych 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 setting 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 Male-To-Female transsexual who has a reputation for coming off as [[DoesNotLikeMen rather misandric]].
** On a meta-level, Canon!Celestia showing a distaste for eugenics is also 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.
** Canon!Discord makes a couple quick potshots at conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza and the notorious evangelist/actor Kirk Cameron.
* 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.
* ''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/MyLittleUnicorn'':
** 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/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 is basically a [[AccusationFic mouthpiece for every complaint fans of the show have ever had]], mostly regarding the actions of the Mane Six and Celestia. 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.

[[AC: ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'']]
* 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.
--> 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...
* An omake in ''New Chance'' takes multiple shots on the number of {{BrokenAesop}}s and other such complaints fans have about Naruto's story.
* ''[[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.
* 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.
* ''[[http://ficwad.com/story/231611 The Lemon Sage Presents: The Promise]]'' has one towards canon when Hanabi is worried about the lengths [[TookALevelInJerkass Hinata]] will go to break up her and Naruto. When she suggests Hinata developing a genjutsu to make Naruto fall for her, Hanabi cries that it'd probably also "turn him into the kind of scumbag that'd claim he only pretended to love Sakura because of Sasuke."
* 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.

[[AC: ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'']]
* 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 [[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 ''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 OnePiece 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 OnePiece 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/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: ''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 KingOfTheHill by having Benson and Skips mentally express their displeasure of watching the show. Pops, on the other hand, liked it.

[[AC: ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'']]
* In ''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.
* 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, [[{{Shotacon}} 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/TotalDramaIsland'']]
* 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 [[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 TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager

[[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?]].
Back to TakeThat.
