** Now that Volume 3 has begun, it's widely agreed that ''this'' is the point where the series has truly come into its own. The animation has improved so much it's hardly recognizable as the same show, the voice work is now consistently outstanding, the pacing blows even the best episodes of the previous volumes out of the water, and the humor is much more even. The overall opinion among viewers is that ''RWBY'' now feels like a real, broadcast-quality show and not just an amateur web series.

[[spoiler: Latter half of the season contains the brutal deaths of several beloved characters and aversion of StatusQuoIsGod which marks a [[CerebusSyndrome turning point]] in the series to a more [[DarkerAndEdgier serious show]] with [[AnyoneCanDie life and death]] consequences.]]

* ''WebAnimation/TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool'': While season one was definitely funny, season two and ''especially'' season three is where the show really begins to showcase its storytelling abilities and its comedy.

** Episode 8 was the high point of Volume 1, delivering the show's first truly great action scene, a lot of good character development, and proof that the story was actually going somewhere.
** Volume 2 started off on the right foot, with the animation, dialogue, and voice work generally better than in Vol 1, but this season gradually succumbed to very poor pacing, overuse of comic relief, and an obviously rushed, unsatisfying finale.

* Season 1 of ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' relied heavily on internet culture references and fourth wall gags that, while funny on their own, was love it or hate it. Starting with Season 2 and the Namek Saga, the dialogue become a lot wittier, relied less on fourth wall jokes and references, and had such excellent edits for the sake of jokes that if you hadn't watched the actual show in a few year you legitimately wouldn't notice a difference.

* ''ImAMarvelAndImADC'' began as some somewhat amusing shorts, though it relied a bit on sticking to the Mac ad series, and the stopmotion was rather jarring. The series really got funny when it just picked up the concept of a dick-waving contest between the two giants and ran with it. In other words, the second RandomGuys Green Goblin showed up.
** Also on the dramtic side, it grew a dramatic beard the moment it revealed that Superman was missing, and the casual "After Hours" had suddenly become a CrisisCrossover.
*** Related to this was LexLuthor and {{Superman}}'s argument about erasing the marvel universe when viewers suddenly realized the series could also be incredibly deep.
** It grew the beard a second time, going from great to awesome, by adding one character - {{Deadpool}}. "Rorschach and Deadpoooooool. A nut and a fooooooooool."

** The real growing the beard moment came with the Recollections trilogy. Blood Gulch Chronicles was undoubtedly hilarious but there were arguably just as many shows out there that were just as good if not better. Then came the Recollections trilogy with EPIC!! fight scenes interesting plot/character development, surprisingly good acting, an awesome villain and a really gripping story, and it STILL managed to stay absolutely hilarious. All this served to finally cement Red vs Blue up there as the greatest Web show of all time, with quality on the level of the best of professionaly made movies
** Now, with the upcoming Season 10, Elijah Wood is signed on as one of the voice actors.

* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' first started off as a novel concept, but all but two of the actors were amateur, the sound was muffled and the overall pacing was slow. Season two picked things up immensely, but season three was really where Rooster Teeth got into the swing of things.

* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' The animation of ''HappyTreeFriends'' became more polished over time, while episode plots became longer and more likely to involve multiple characters. This is particularly notable in the TV episodes starting in 2006.
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'''s
first major cartoons (which have since been removed from its site) were fairly awkward and at odds in characterisation with later installments. Around the point of the Fluffy Puff Commercial or Where's The Cheat, the characters started off as a novel concept, but all but two of the actors were amateur, the sound was muffled and the overall pacing was slow.

* The first two episodes of ''ThereSheIs'' are great, but it isn't until the third episode that the story really starts to pick up. This is mostly because, while the first two are pretty much standalone stories, the last three episodes work as a trilogy.
