* The protagonist of the webcomic ''TheLounge'', Italy Ishida, seems to get a pretty large dose of this, cross pollinated with NoBisexuals.
* Matt in {{Concession}} went from being a shy and polite virgin Christian boy who happened to be bisexual into a sex obsessed, diaper wearing, cross dressing, BDSM junkie who has sex with transvestites behind his boyfriends back and uses dark magic to fight priests who are trying to save the world.

* In ''RedString'', the author suddenly fell in love with a different love interest for the main character, Miharu, and had a problem in that she'd invested a lot of time in the ''original'' male lead, Kazuo, and how they were destined to be (as in the red string of the title). Near the end of the comic, Kazuo suddenly devolved into a creepy, awkward loser that "couldn't let go" - but as he rightfully points out, Makoto is a terrible person and in the very scene where he says this, Makoto has literally yanked Miharu away from him and yelled at her for continuing to associate with him. Naturally, as people still persisted in hating the CreatorsPet that was Makoto and still expected her to give Kazuo a fair shake, Gina portrayed Kazuo as forcing himself on Miharu as a last ditch effort to appeal to her. She wrote in an author's note on the original page that she did so to portray the scene as having "consequences" for him. He had never been portrayed as being this desperate and the act was clearly intended to contrast negatively to Makoto. The backlash from the original page (which showed Miharu actually wiping the kiss off) was so powerful that Gina eventually tried to redraw the page, but most of the fans still saw it as the JumpTheShark moment it was. Note that Makoto, despite constantly forcing himself on Miharu while she was dating Kazuo, is brushed off even by the woman he cheated on for Miharu as him just being a "flirty goofball." And in the final slapped together epilog that the author only wrote to get people to stop bugging her about what happened to Kazuo? Oh, she shows him as ''happy'' that Miharu has completely blown him off...when mere hours earlier, he was declaring that he still loved her.

* PlayedWith in Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}, as [[ManipulativeBastard Terezi]] [[BlindSeer Pyrope]], a user of MoreThanMindControl, gets derailed by her defying the DoomedMoralVictor trope to maintain the alpha timeline. It gives her a very understated MyGodWhatHaveIDone with [[HeterosexualLifePartners Vriska]] and affects her on a deeper level, moving her from a ManipulativeBastard to a BrokenAce.

** A bonus story for the omnibuses that was written in the final year of the comic when full CreatorsPet status had set in for Makoto was noted as portraying Kazuo in a much more negative and awkward personality than he had previously been portrayed as in the start of the comic. Simulataneously, Makoto was shown as being a much nicer and kinder person than he actually was at that point in the comic. A lot of readers saw it as Gina trying to further retcon the characters to make the audience like Makoto more and Kazuo less.

* ''Marauder Shields'' hinges on the indoctrination of [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]], despite the third game making it perfectly clear that Shepard is not indoctrinated at any point. All this only serves to remove Commander Shepard as the protagonist in favour of [[FixerSue a non-controlled Marauder out of nowhere.]]
