** UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Allison's been in love with the same boy since first grade. After that boy turns her down because of personal issues and later moves away, she finds it very hard to date someone else. They get into arguments all the time and really are pretty incompatible, but she can't bring herself to break it off, feeling like she can't do better since the only boy she ever really liked turned her down. While they do eventually break up, she still feels really down over the fact that she can't be with the boy she really likes. Especially since that boy is really a [[{{Transsexual}} DMAB transgirl]] and [[IncompatibleOrientation she's straight as an arrow]].

** InnocentlyInsensitive[=/=]HaveIMentionedHowHeterosexualIAmToday: Drew, who attends catholic school and is ''very'' insecure about his sexuality and how people perceive him. He ends up falling for Ky, who is biologically female but seems to be genderfluid. For a long time throughout the comic, they try explaining to Drew how it works and seeing if they can make a relationship work. It does seem to go well whenever they're alone, but he doesn't seem to want to be seen with them in public when they're not presenting as a girl. He goes so far as to out them as a girl in front of his classmates and continually asserts that he's not gay. This obviously pisses Ky off and [[WhatTheHellHero even his friends tell him he shouldn't have done that if he expects to date them]]. Eventually, when discussing prom, Ky questions whether Drew actually likes them or just likes the idea of them; someone who can fit his confused view of himself. When he says he just doesn't want people to get the wrong idea, Ky brings up [[AbusiveParents their mother, who distanced herself from Ky after they came out because she didn't want people to get the wrong idea as well]]. In the end, Ky concludes that, while Drew isn't a bad person, the two of them may just be incompatible and that they should call it off. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone He definitely regrets hurting them afterward.]]

* ''WebComic/{{Rain}} deconstructs a few, especially those related to the LGBT community.
** IfItsYouItsOkay: Rudy, a predominant homosexual, and Rain, a DMAB pre-op transgirl, decide to start dating early on in the story. This leads to many people, such as Rudy's [[AbusiveParents parents]], believing he's been [[CureYourGays "cured" of his gay feelings]]. While the two of them get along very well, many start to question whether their relationship can survive Rain's intent to fully transition one day. In the end, they do eventually break up, but not because of any loss of feelings on Rudy's part. Rain enjoyed the attention she was getting from him, enjoyed his company, and saw dating a boy as a thing "normal girls" do. However, she doesn't experience any kind of romantic or sexual attraction toward males. While the two do remain good friends, Rudy takes the breakup a lot harder than she does and [[TookALevelInJerkass it does leave a noticeable bitterness in his attitude through the rest of the comic]]. Not to mention many of his friends and classmates consider him "sick" again.

** GenreSavvy is deconstructed with Tarquin. He sees everyone as nothing but plot devices [[spoiler:to the point that when he murders his own son Nale he considers it nothing more than the removal of a useless B-villain that Elan has outgrown.]]
*** [[spoiler:[[WordOfGod Rich Burlew]] goes one step further by revealing [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=318550&page=4 in the forum]] that being GenreSavvy and a capable fighter are Tarquin's only real talents.

** It also deconstructs TrappedInAnotherWorld. More like the other world cultivates the players and their parental figures/role models, sends them off to another planet, then starts throwing meteors at the planet once the players have hit puberty. Winning the game is pretty much the only way they can go back to some semblance of a normal, happy life. [[spoiler: And the trolls don't even get that.]]

** Belkar deconstructs the TokenEvilTeammate. While his [[CardCarryingVillain gleefully evil ways]] were initially played for laughs, lately they've proven to have realistic consequences, both on the world in general and his relationship with the rest of the party.

* ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'' deconstructs the InteractiveComic trope itself. The readers suggesting commands are not abstractions and are very real and powerful beings of an unknown nature according to WordOfGod.
