* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' starts off with the usual WeirdnessCensor that is prevalent in works where TheMasquerade is in place. Unfortunately, as the comic progresses, it becomes obvious that, despite what the protagonists thought, random civilians who've witnessed supernatural occurrences don't suddenly forget they happened, they just try not to acknowledge that they did. From every time a MonsterOfTheWeek appears, to when the protagonists casually show off their superpowers, TheMasquerade has been breaking down, and the existence of magic is no longer a secret. Which leads to another RealityEnsues moment-- in TheUnmasquedWorld, where anyone can learn to use magic, what stops an amoral sociopath from getting superpowers? And becauuse PersonalityPowers is in effect, what kind of powers do you think that sociopath will get?

* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'': During the "Big Dumb Objects" arc, the research team has managed to translate an ancient Oafan star chart and pinpoint the current locations of several caches of advanced technology. Nearly all of them are long gone: over [[TimeAbyss the untold eons]] since they were established, they've either already been picked clean by other races or been destroyed by cosmic events. Of course they were. Someone was bound to find this stuff sooner or later. And no RagnarokProofing measures are perfect. If the sun blows up, there's not much anyone can do.

* In ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'', Amber, in her vigilante identity as Amazi-Girl catches someone vandalising a street sign and orders him to stop. The guy flat outvrefuses since Amber is not a law enforcement officer and the only way she could stop him would be to physically assault him, which would be a much greater crime than vandalism.

* When Quinn and Ellie in ''Webcomic/ShotgunShuffle'' discover they've been put on a voyeur site by Danny, Quinn immediately wants to call the cops. Ellie (whose dad is the chief of police) suggests that they not, since the media coverage would only make things worse and further embarrass them. Instead, they make a deal with Danny's equally outraged partner for compensation.

* ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'' features Parson Gotti, a CombatPragmatist general imported from Earth to an RPGMechanicsVerse. He favors outside-the-box tactics that his enemies don't see coming... up-to and including [[spoiler: using false surrenders to assassinate enemy leaders and launching massive attacks in the middle of parley, or launching attacks through neutral territory without their consent]]. While he sees this as just another metagaming technique, the other factions consider these war crimes just as they would be considered in our world. This means that when the situation starts to stabilize nobody trusts him or his faction enough to negotiate a cease-fire, and those few that do negotiate with him hold his side at arm's length.

Granted, Parson partially acts the way he does because he believes the parlays will be done in bad faith and that the Magic Kingdom's hostile attitude towards him makes him not have anything to lose.
