And then regular, though less frequent, comic updates returned in 2015. It's only "irregular" in the sense that it has [[FourLinesAllWaiting numerous mostly-separate storylines with no concrete swapping schedule.]]

* ''Webcomic/GirlsWithSlingshots'': The two main characters are still female, but the Slingshots in question are drinks. The Slingshot is the specialty beverage of a drag bar where Jamie and Hazel went once, and had one Slingshot each. Neither the bar nor the beverage has been mentioned since.
** Furthermore, the title was originally conceived when the comic was going to be a comedic "superheroes" story, with Jamie and Hazel wielding slingshots as their heroic weapons.

* Thoroughly zig-zagged by ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}', that being both a title reflecting the state of the protagonists at the beginning and a reference to Videogame/{{Earthbound}}, as the protagonists are very often stuck in places which could be considered home, but not always.

* ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'' {{averted}} the trope when the originally planned comic failed and the Mega Man sprite comic, originally used simply for filler, proved more popular by merging portions of the Bob and George plot, including characters, with the Mega Man sprite comic. Bob and George were even given PlotArmor as long as they were in the title, which lead to a joke of a character "dying" thus leading to his name being removed from the title.\\

* Played with in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': Outside of being written by Dan Shive, the title is [[WordSaladTitle meaningless]]. However, long after it started, there was a gag strip with a ''[[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2003-08-13 single panel]]'' featuring a goon - and this was said to completely justify the title, even though he [[http://www.ookii.org/Egs/Statistics?character=HiredGoon#HiredGoon has never appeared again]] and most probably never will.

** ''Bob and George'' is a very interesting example. The Mega Man sprite comic originally had no mention of the title characters at all; according to the author's notes for the first few hundred comics, he hadn't planned on making Bob and George characters at all once the strips became 100% Mega Man sprite comics. But he realized that he already had a developing fanbase and it was too late to change the comic title, and he didn't want to keep a title that was irrelevant to the story, so he added Bob and George, completely changing the story. So he tried so hard to avert this trope that he ended up drastically changing his comic and adding in two characters that ended up being way more important than Mega Man.
* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally]] going to feature several video game parodies, an idea abandoned by Clevinger when the Final Fantasy comic became popular; hence the title which seems to suggest more 8-bit stories that were never made (and never will be).
** This was slightly averted by the brief side comic Field of Battle (included in the 8-Bit archives [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2005/08/01/field-of-battle-chapter-1/ here]]), which features the sprite comic style but is otherwise unconnected to ''8-Bit Theater''.

What the title actually meant is a bit of a RunningGag during [[BreakingTheFourthWall Fourth Wall Breaking fillers strips]].
** Finally given meaning when it's revealed that [[spoiler: Bun-bun used to be a god named Sluggy, but he declared, after a near-apocalypse, that he was going freelance]].

* ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' was originally conceived as a ''WorldOfWarcraft'' parody, and the name was fitting. But over time, the series began moving away from ''Warcraft'' by parodying other fantasy franchises and developing its own universe. Nowadays, the strip is more of a {{Dramedy}}, and parody gags of any kind are few and far between.

* ''Webcomic/TheWhiteboard''. Although the comic started as doodles on a whiteboard, it stopped after only ''five'' "strips", and there was one later on to celebrate a holiday, for a grand total of ''six'' -- less than 3 ''permille'' [[note]]10 permille is 1 percent[[/note]] of the now 2000+ strip {{archive| panic}}.

* Deathbulge used to be about the misadventures of the eponymous metal band, before eventually drifting into a more surreal, disconnected joke of the week format.

* ''PolkOut'', where polking out (Named after James K. Polk) is a phrase the Polkster coined to refer to pulling out when the job is done. This was to refer to the rotating comics which have long since stopped doing any rotating. It just ''might'' apply again [[WordOfGod in the near future]].
