* ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'', back in the beginning, was a parody of the Japan that the Western geeks at the time were only just starting to experience - Largo's arc was about parodying ShonenDemographic stuff, while Piro's was more about the ShoujoDemographic. In other words, it was a time where such parodies were very few and far between. But now, where parodies of anime and manga are far more common, the older comics just seem like nothing but one lame joke after another, and [[https://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2004/04/26/here-he-goes-again-on-his-own it's massive popularity at the time]] seem nigh-unbelievable.

* ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'' as one of the first major GamingWebcomics and featured tropes like TwoGamersOnACouch and SnarkyNonHumanSidekick. While still well-liked now, most of the innovation of the comic has been imitated by anyone with a Wacom tablet and an internet connection.

* ''Webcomic/DMOfTheRings'' deliberately invokes this trope in relation to ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'' and ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. Since the latter borrowed liberally from the former, the players (who apparently never experienced Tolkien, possibly because LotR is the invention of the DM in their world) are utterly bored by most of the proceedings, and spend much of the comic complaining about the generic plot devices and worldbuilding while demanding that the DM throw in some enemies that aren't orcs.

* ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge''. The author admits to wincing at [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/000502c this strip]] with a self-depreciating AuthorAvatar, even though he knows it's the first use, because it's been done so often since.
