** [[spoiler:Caliborn]] enters Sburb by himself, rather than with [[spoiler:his sister Calliope]] as originally intended; since it is intrinsically a multi-player game, the game is forced to adapt by generating an almost unique variant: a [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast dead session]]. This session has much higher stakes, depending on whether you are a passive or aggressive player. For an aggressive player, you get the chance to gain [[spoiler:completely unconditional immortality, transcending the typical limited immortality of God Tiers]]; however, not only are the rules of the game completely different in a dead session, but the game becomes nearly unwinnable. [[spoiler:First, the game doesn't naturally generate a planet for you, so you're forced to transport your own entire planet with you into the game first. Then, you can't even unlock your quest until you've already done a bunch of messing around on your newly altered homeworld. Then, Skaia produces fifteen planets (resembling billiard balls) before collapsing into a black hole, which you have to shoot all the planets into in the correct order (saving the eighth planet for last) before each one is destroyed by a bomb at its core; if at any point you're too slow, you lose. Forever. And even if you manage all that, you're still up against a boss fight with Yaldabaoth, the single most powerful Denizen in all of Paradox Space.]] It's heavily implied that [[spoiler:Caliborn was only able to beat his session on account of being [[{{Determinator}} so damn stubborn]].

* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' has several in his "What If" column. To name just one: You really can build a jet pack from machine guns firing downward. The physics work out. (It's still not in wide use.)

* The flying uniforms in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' are useful for transport and getting into good positions, but the Toughs still do a lot of foot-slogging because being in the air makes you fairly obvious, and being obvious on the battlefield makes you a target.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'', Vashiel is an angel of punishment, so he gets a BigFuckingSword that ''flames'' and can ''smite evildoers in a second''. His brother, Rumisiel, is a filer, so he gets a multi-filing tool, with a recorder, web access, and other BoringButPractical things like that. Guess which one comes in handy?
