* ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' manages to routinely confuse its readership mostly through unusually high concentration of meta (it's a NoFourthWall MegaCrossover MetaFic with RecursiveReality for starters), but its ''"Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On" arc'' takes the cake. The best description the fans could come up with to date is: ''Film/{{Inception}}'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Theatre/SwanLake'' and also a [[DivorceAssetsConflict custody battle]] over TheFairFolk MonsterRoommate.

* ''Webcomic/FaceAllRed'' derives most of its horror from this.

* The final arc of the fifth book of ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'', "What Dreams May Come" focuses on a wish-granting artifact granting a kind of (extremely geeky) {{Instrumentality}}, apparently a metaphor for the afterlife. A few of the earlier and later introspective storylines could get a little MindScrew-[[BuffySpeak ey]], but this one (being the intended finale) was just plain ''insane''.

** While not really symbolic, Torg's flashbacks will freeze your brain. Mainly because we see things through his perspective so anything we read has already been warped by his screwy mind. Most of the time we don't even know he's flashbacking until the scene suddenly cuts to him in a completely different scene saying "And that's how..."

* The previous MS Paint Adventure, ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'', is actually a better example, given that it threw logic literally out the window right at the beginning. Over the course of the story, we have an imaginary universe that exists in all the characters' minds simultaneously, but physical objects can pass between the real and imaginary worlds. That's not even getting into things like mental transportation by hitting your head, valves, doors and clothes that change peoples' sizes and shapes, a robot walking through a portal into the building it's carrying on its back, or ''putting a window through itself''. It's mostly played for laughs, but still gets quite mindbending.

** The author admits to having been influenced by ''ALessonIsLearnedButTheDamageIsIrreversible'' which seems to be nothing ''but'' a MindScrew. Have [[http://www.alessonislearned.com/lesson013.html a look]].

* ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'', the Entire series was just one big MIND SCREW, unless you pay attention to every detail, you are going to get lost.

* ''Webcomic/GroundedAngel'' ([[http://www.drunkduck.com/Grounded_Angel/index.php?p=97579 link]]). Let me save you a couple of hours of mediocre art and predicable plot twists: the main character turns out to be [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic an angel]] who is being chased by demons and a cat-man who leads a cult, they want the power of a book that only she can open. And in the end when she gets to the book? Turns out humanity is not yet ready for the way she wants to use it, and [[GroundhogDayLoop she gets to return to the start and do it all over again]] with her memories of the whole thing erased; oh, and she's been doing this for 176 years. Yeah, everything in the story occurred ''at least'' 64,240 times.

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', there is lots of it. When done intentionally, usually involves [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2003-02-17 attempts to project the normal family tree]] onto [[OppositeSexClone Ellen]]'s case in several equally disturbing ways.
