* From ''Webcomic/JohnnyWander'': What do [[http://www.johnnywander.com/comics/62 trying to roast garlic]] and [[http://www.johnnywander.com/comics/50 drying peppers]] in the oven have in common besides the obvious? This. They even [[LampshadeHanging refer to the second incident]] as making homemade mace.

* Aaron Williams' ''Webcomic/FullFrontalNerdity'' has, among other delightful slices of Gamer Life and other nerd instances, the occasional example of truly epic fail, almost always by Lewis. Though he is usually a victim of his own impulses and poor planning, he is also cursed with truly awful dice luck. [[http://ffn.nodwick.com/?p=388 This]] is a decent example of how bad Lewis can roll. He has also jinxed a die so badly it infected other d20 with the "1" virus, rolled a "1" when it was buried, and started making "1" show up everywhere. Further, Williams even has a collection of Nerdity out titled the ''Big Book of Epic Fail''.
** In the newer strip Lewis try to achieve godhood through demonstration of his miraculous [[http://ffn.nodwick.com/?p=1254 bad luck]].

* The Ho'aku tribe in ''Webcomic/SurvivorFanCharacters'' was truly an epic fail, filled with a) weak and easily influenced members, b) jealous and power-hungry contestants who wanted to lead and voted out the first two leaders, and c) [[CanonImmigrant Russell Hantz]], who sabotaged their tribe. What happened was one of the worst losing streaks in the comic's history, with the Ho'aku tribe losing ten out of thirteen challenges, going to every single Tribal Council but one, and ultimately being whittled down to two members. [[spoiler:However, the tribe's plight is spectacularly subverted when a member of the Ho'aku tribe manages to go on an immunity run and win the game!]]

* In ''Webcomic/AnsemRetort'', Sora participated in a Vice Gubernatorial debate against Owl from Winnie the Pooh. Owl didn't speak English. And halfway through the debate, [=Red XIII=] killed Owl. Sora not only continued to debate Owl's corpse, but somehow managed to lose to it.

** Earlier, when they were captured, BM tried to kill his allies. It was in a small corridor, easy to hit them in, with reflecting walls. What happened? He hit something: himself. It was the same attack as the volcano.

* Cosette from [[QuestionableContent]] has a habit of this. First, she worked up the courage to ask Marten out only to find he had a girlfriend, then went to the coffee shop said girlfriend owned and ended up complaining to her about it, and ''then'' ended up being the waitress that served the two later that evening. Later, Marten attempted to set her up with his friend Steve, and she didn't call because she accidentally fell down the stairs while ogling his picture, and when they finally got together, their first date lovemaking was interrupted by a fire drill and then a pop in her injured neck, and when she sought a job at Coffee of Doom, it turned out that every past business she worked for shut down under less-than-reputable circumstances, from burning down, to the owners being arrested for criminal activity. It leads characters to believing that she's cursed to cause Epic Fail in those around her as well.
