* ''WebComic/TwoKinds'' used to have a SuperMode for keidrans, where they switched from PettingZooPeople to outright [[BeastMan Beast-men]]. It hasn't shown up in years. It also used to have devices called "towers", which looked like high-tech knockoffs of Barad-Ur, until they showed up in the Bastin Isles arc, where they look like ordinary wall turrets.

* An early Webcomic/OzyAndMillie strip had Millie trying to petition her parents. Not too long later she had a single mother.

** Also, Millie once asked Ozy to holler if anyone came to the girls' restroom while she was doffing her overalls (to dry them with the hand dryer). For most of the comic's run thereafter -- perhaps due to her {{Flanderization}} into more of a CloudCuckoolander -- she [[NakedPeopleAreFunny didn't need much of a reason to get naked in public]].

* ''Webcomic/ThinkBeforeYouThink'' is about Brian, a nice guy who's a powerful telepath but tries to keep his powers secret. In the first few comics, however, he shows off his powers blatantly and acts like kind of a jerk.

* ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' was originally set in the ForgottenRealms setting, and was a lot more explicit about sexuality, deliberately introducing [[{{Squick}} Squicky]] details about the drow sex lives to [[DeliberateValuesDissonance intentionally weird out the readers]] and showing Ariel as a more outright VillainProtagonist. Later on the first several chapters were redone to make the tone and setting more internally consistent with later story arcs.

* ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' got its start as a straight-up ''WorldOfWarcraft'' parody. It was much more cartoonish in both drawing style and narrative, with Richard burning Kale to ash in his first appearance, then having a conversation with him as a pile of ashes in a pouch while seeking out the priestess Ben'Joon ("Benny") to resurrect him. In the years that followed, the comic has developed its own unique world. It remains comedic but has lost its more cartoonish elements.

* ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' initially opened with it being quite clear that the characters were derived from the early MMO {{Furcadia}}, but then moved to being a more fleshed out world of its own, even if still retaining some of its old "MMO made real" elements Alexis' Banhammer became a magical greathammer, the Twinks become a "normal" organized crime gang, etc. And there are also other elements that linger a while before being more or less phased out for example, [[BewareTheNiceOnes Lorenda]] was introduced having saved Jyrras from muggers by eating them, got evicted because she'd ''eaten'' her neighbors and then proceeds to eat several door-to-door salesmen. While she was admittedly self-proclaimed as preferring not to eat people, and this was a common source of friction with her mother, it hasn't been mentioned for hundreds of comics. In fact, neither has her much more predatory mother's tendency to eat people.

* In the few years of ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'', it occasionally indicated the existence of fantasy creatures, including gnomes, the Tooth Fairy, and literal trolls. Since they did not appear (completely) onscreen, we could not tell whether they were as humanoid as conventionally depicted. The author later decided that his FurryComic was weird enough without them.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GuildedAge'': Early chapters had the characters engaging in a load of pop-culture references as casual dialog, Frigg more so than anyone else, when they weren't all living in a WorldOfSnark. This faded over time as the setting developed into its current and somewhat more serious state.

** The first time a troll (namely Karkat) is [[TheReveal shown onscreen,]] he is standing in [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003255 a room with light gray walls, with a twelve-paned window in an octagonal frame]]. When they get their proper introduction, Karkat's house (and troll houses/hives in general) take on their better-known appearance, [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003894 with frameless windows and dark gray walls.]]
