Portal brings us "Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee[bzzt]", "Peppy Music" and "Calming Wind".

* ''Webcomic/UserFriendly'' had some 'interesting' sounds for coffee brewing: "sizzle", "congeal", "fold proteins", "curdle", "sprout". Of course, given that previous coffee-brewing efforts have intentionally created a brew that has the properties of [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]] acid-for-blood and one that was made with parts of [[Creator/HPLovecraft Hastur]], this may indicate a success.

* ''Framed!!!'' used effects like "walk" for walking.



* ''Badass Muthas'' does [[http://badassmuthas.com/pages/comic.php?7 this]].



* [[http://pasteldefender.com/222.html Here's a variation from ''Pastel Defender Heliotrope'' (panel 4)]]



* [[http://www.alessonislearned.com/index.php?comic=6 This]] ''Webcomic/ALessonIsLearnedButTheDamageIsIrreversible'' comic uses "GASOLINE". Others used include "MOONROCK" and "COMBINE".



* ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'':

** [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/2249.html This one]] includes "Silence!" as a lack-of-sound effect.

* ''Webcomic/AxeCop'' uses them; in "Axe Cop Gets Married", the fight with the final boss involves him transforming around into different forms, and all get their own written sound effects or unsound effects like "VINE!" (when he transforms into a plant), but when he transforms into a house with big long legs, even unsound effects fail and we get "?!?!!".
* ''Badass Muthas'' does [[http://badassmuthas.com/pages/comic.php?7 this]].
