** Pretty much any strip that involves [[CloudCuckoolander Beret Guy]]. Even in a series known for zaniness and little plot continuity, he and his train of thought are ''so'' over-the-top strange as to delve straight into {{BLAM}} territory.

* The KoreanWebToon ''Webcomic/{{Lookism}}'' ''begins'' with the main character [[LiteralSplitPersonality split into two bodies]] which he changes between each time he sleeps. How it happened, how it could happen, or if it's just a metaphor for "If you get confident enough, everyone will respect you no matter how you look" is unknown, it just happened. But there wouldn't be any plot without it, so it's okay.

* This was an unfortunate result of Dan of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' declaring that he's [[LighterAndSofter bringing silly back]]. One of the first tries involved Sarah calling for the Demonic Duck for absolutely no logical reason, leading to a bizarre exchange, that ends with the duck jumping out of the car, and the conversation picking up from exactly the same spot it left off, wasting a whole page, plus two panels on basically nothing.

* [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2000/9/13/ This strip]] early on in ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'' where Tycho is a giant turnip in a sweater. No comment is made about this, and it never happens again.

* The [[HalloweenEpisode appearances]] of the [[http://bobadventures.comicgenesis.com/d/20081031.html Halloween Monster]] in ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob''.
** Later no longer applies, as it becomes a tradition to use this monster every halloween, making it a running gag instead.
* Heroes Of Lesser Earth, on [[http://www.heroesoflesserearth.com/2006/10/hole_comic_2006-10-27gif this page]], Martin has swapped out his permanent flying ability for Animate Dead. It's played just once for laughs here, and he never uses it again.
* The random death metal comic from ''QuestionableContent'' found [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=666 here]], drawn to commemorate the 666th strip.

** Another BLAM occurs in ''QuestionableContent'' when [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1135 three characters, two of them female, appear with mustaches.]] This is not explained or referenced on the site, though the creator did later say that it was a reference to the fact that it was published on Cinco De Mayo.

** Some of the earlier flashes have a "Trickster Mode," where pressing certain keys will distort the flash into something else. Effects include giving John a [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]] outfit, [[VideoGame/EarthBound Ness and his buddies]] making an appearance in a secret room, going into Webcomic/ProblemSleuth's office, and a brightly-colored John with a lolipop stuck in his hair floating near the corner of the screen. [[spoiler:The candy-themed alternates specifically show up, as does the ''Final Fantasy'' room, but nothing else about them is ever mentioned again, and Trickster powers do not seem to have any connections with what is demonstrated on the mode itself. In fact, their design was even ret-conned to resemble Cherubim more]].

* In a comic that is otherwise a fairly ordinary retelling of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', we get to the boss batle with the two magitek knights in the Figaro desert. [[http://ff6comic.comicgenesis.com/d/20090928.html One of them]] appears to be... [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Cecil]]?
* TragicDeaths has one in the first story arc. It's even lampshaded by Petalklunk.
* In OurLittleAdventure, Julie sang about the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dL30lU26egw glory which is Megaman]] in order to prove herself and get the [[PlotCoupon pendant]]. This didn't work well, though she got the pendant anyway due to a much more efficient look through her thoughts.
* Another literal invocation from ''RegularGuy'' [[http://www.stillontheshelf.com/RegularGuy/?p=184]].

* ''{{Drowtales}}'' had [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=617 a random dwarf dressed as Santa Claus]] with "Merry Christmas Elven Bastards" carved into his cannon. Besides being a rather bizarre [[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth-wall breaking moment]] outside of a chibi page (where such things usually occur), he never shows up again after this page. WordOfGod is that it was a joke since the page was published around Christmas.

* ''WebComic/DragonBallMultiverse'': The beginning of the tournament's second day is celebrated with a musical performance by the ''Film/StarWars'' Cantina Band. Pan and Tapion enjoy the musical interlude, Bra, Frieza's Family and Babidi do not. [[spoiler: Zen Buu thought it was so bad that he demanded that they give their instruments to him so he could play.]]

*** The point is, if it's Homestuck, and it mentions 'Tricksters', then yes, it is this trope.

* In one strip of DarthsAndDroids (done on April Fools Day, that context can get lost when reading the entire series), during the ''AttackOfTheClones'' sequence, Padme "dies" in the desert. The scene then abruptly shifts to screencaps of the scene from ''Film/ThePrincessBride'' where the Grandson argues with Grandpa over Westley's death (only now they're arguing about Padme's). To make it even more confusing, Grandpa has the yellow speech balloons that indicates he's the GM, while the Grandson has the white speech balloons of a roleplayer. And the Grandson even calls him "Grandpa". (Is the GM a grandfather?!) Keep in mind, this strip is supposed to be about a bunch of players at a TabletopRPG.

** Later, [[AuthorAvatar Andrew Hussie]], being [[Letters2Numbers manipul8ed]] by Vriska, participates in a [[Film/TheNeverendingStory Neverending Story]] shout out by riding Falcor (who has rapidly cycling pool ball eyes for some tangentially plot-related reason), who then barfs on some bullies.
*** Strangely enough, this BLAM is actually a BrickJoke - the bullies were mentioned earlier, in a similar fourth-wall breaking interlude.
*** Got referenced later, with a comment that Falcor had to be put down due to rabies.
** And then it has Andrew Hussie mourning over the death of a character from ''Hook''. [[LampshadeHanging Which resulted in the largest "THIS IS STUPID" yet.]]
** Did Hussie [[spoiler:proposing to Vriska]] have any foreshadowing, despite being a meme? Granted, they mentioned it again, but, without the context of the meme, it seems to come out of nowhere.
*** [[spoiler: However, it seems as if [[ChekhovsGun the engagement ring has some importance.]] ]]
** And then there is Act 6: Act 5: Act 2, an extended MushroomSamba so bizarre that both the AuthorAvatar narrator ''and'' the BigBad narrator are left speechless, save for a few [[FlatWhat flat whats]].
