* AcceptableTargets: 4Kids itself. Especially prevalent in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', where there is at least one TakeThat every episode.
* AnimationAgeGhetto: Due to 4Kids' censorship practices and some comments that effectively indicated their dead refusal to alter them (CEO Kahn, who eventually stepped down in 2011, said in a 2005 interview, "..if [anime fans] want this programming to come to the United States, then they're going to have to accept the fact that it's going to be available in two styles"), 4Kids effectively was one of the outlets enforcing the ghetto, potentially to the chagrin of Creator/{{Pixar}}, Creator/{{Disney}}, and Creator/DreamWorksAnimation. This effectively ended when the ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' licensing agreements fell into disarray, Kahn stepped back, alternate versions of animation arose, and Disney created a second Disney Renaissance.
* CutAndPasteTranslation: Their ''Anime/OnePiece'' localization is so reviled some fans have accused it of being this; the others too are subject to debate.
** Given quite a hilarious ShoutOut[=/=]TakeThat [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=145 in this VG Cats comic.]]
** Poor, poor season 3 of ''Anime/SonicX''...[[NeverSayDie by the way I do hope Shadow finds Maria again some day]].
* MemeticMutation: [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/what-if-4kids-got-x?full=1 "If 4Kids got X"]], which takes an anime, often one that is not child-friendly at all, and applies 4Kids' editing practices to it.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Pretty much any [[{{Macekre}} dub]] 4kids made.
** Ironically, when 4Kids lost the rights to dub the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, many fans were outraged at the new dub by The Pokémon Company USA and wanted 4Kids to continue the dub.
