* Momo in ''ComicBook/{{Persepolis}}''. His arguments are actually refuted by Marjane, who has seen people find meaningful purposes for themselves despite the world's senselessness and cruelty.

* The one speaking Worg so far in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' seems to view life as essentially a meaningless exercise in gathering treats ending in horrible death.
-->'''Worg:''' Only certainty in life: when icy jaws of death come, you will not have had enough treats.

* [[https://esolangs.org/wiki/Nil Nil]] is an esoteric programming language based around the idea that your computer could interpret programming code as one. The interpreter in this programming language basically splits whole statements into pieces through a process that is known as "atomization". After that is done it determines that each part of the code is essentially meaningless. It then adds up all the meaningless stuff in the code and concludes that the entire operation is meaningless. It is therefore more expressive to implement an interpreter for itself, much more concisely than many 'proper' languages can and is very closely related to human language. Some even managed to process the entire old testament through this thing and it ended up barely comprehending it.

* The concept of a Straw Nihilist is parodied in ''WebComic/SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal''. The Straw Nihilist obsesses over the very concepts he deems meaningless and complains about it endlessly, while the actual nihilist spends his time amassing as much material wealth as he can.

*** Later he gets better, and comes to value each human life as unique and precious because of it's unlikelihood.

** Finally, we have the BigBad, who[[spoiler: only ''pretends'' to be this trope. In truth, Ozymandias can't bring himself to view the annihilation of humanity with indifference, and feels compelled to avert the apocalypse even if he has to murder millions of people to do it. In the end, only Dr. Manhattan is in a position to judge him, and in typically detached fashion, he declines to do so]].

** It's worth noting that there's a great deal less reverence or seriousness than this description implies, however. Kafuka's optimism is later revealed to be the result a minor brain defect that gives her dangerously high levels of serotonin, and most of the time Nozomu turns out to have been attention-seeking or being dramatic for the sake of it instead of genuinely suicidal.

* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'': Sensui, the rogue Spirit Detective. He went on to use [[BrownNote the Chapter Black]] to turn the people that would become his team into Straw Nihilist people as well.

* ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'':
** Cancer Lucrenian is disgusted with the world and her whole motive is to complete Project Omega so it can destroy it. She sees the world as self-destructive and full of lies, discrimination, and injustice. She wants nothing more than to create a new world without these flaws and, especially, one without hope.
-->'''Cancer:''': So naïve to the ways of the world, so full of optimism and hope. I, however, have seen the world for how it truly is. Despair is the only truth in this world of lies and hypocrisy. This world is not worth the dirt we walk upon. Unless it is destroyed and remade properly, it will remain that way, a diseased mire, and everyone humans, witches, and other creatures alike shall continue to dance like court jesters to its incomprehensible whims. If you live long enough, you shall see it sooner or later, even if ''[[HopeCrusher I]]'' must be the one to teach you that.
** Walena Devilana. She holds the view "The world has neither justice, god, nor order" and sneers that "It's all nothing but wretched extravagance."
