* The iPhone in ''Webcomic/TheWayOfTheMetagamer'' works perfectly within the Medieval world of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''.
* Inverted in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. The entire planet is [[ApocalypseHow destroyed by meteors]], the homes of the SBURB/SGRUB players are transported into the game itself, and yet the Internet still works fine.
* ''Webcomic/{{Mezzacotta}}'' has apparently been going for over ten million-million years [[note]]Not really, it's just randomly-generated enough pages to look like it has[[/note]].
