Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': The Story Lord from season 4 is a meta two-fold of this, in which his desire to farm Rick and Morty's "endless storytelling potential" and refusal to accept that there's a limit to them (Rick even says they'll burn out before he gets what he wants) is representative of executives that want to make the series their CashCowFranchise, while his desire to make the episodic show into an epic reflects fans that want that direction to the show despite the creators saying that is not the direction they're taking.

* ''Art/CivicVirtueTriumphantOverUnrighteousness'':
** The male figure itself is "[[EmbodimentOfVirtue Civic Virtue]]".
** The two female figures lounging by Civic Virtue represents [[EmbodimentOfVice "vice" and "corruption,"]] being [[EnthrallingSiren sirens]] who attempt to capture Civic Virtue, [[MinionWithAnFInEvil only to get trapped in their own nets]].

* The [[KnownOnlyByTheirNickname Butt Witch]] in ''WesternAnimation/TwelveForever'' is an allegory for the fear of adulthood. She has a full feminine figure she shows an excessive amount of pride in, seems incapable of moving without looking like she's modeling for the cover of a magazine and has a deep [[VocalDissonce male voice]] representing a child's voice changing. Everything she does is destructive and disruptive towards Endless's child wonderland, as Reggie sees adults as existing for little more than to ruin her fun, and she serves as a constant reminder even in her escape to Endless that Twelve will one day ''have'' to grow up.
