** It's [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that it's not just the enforcers who have powers. Think about this for a moment: people who enjoy hurting others and/or hurting themselves, in possession of superpowers based on whether they are sadists or masochists (or both). And not just enjoying a little, either. People who literally GET OFF from either the pain they themselves feel, or the pain that others feel. Without someone to keep them in line, how is that NOT supervillains just waiting to happen?



** In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', the log header in John's dad's PDA declares ties to be Serious Business.
*** Speaking of Homestuck, [[ProudWarriorRace the trolls]] have a game called FLARP, which is the trollish equivalent of LARP (Live-Action Roleplaying). It's heavily implied that the "F" stands for "Fatal". A nasty CycleOfRevenge, involving one person getting killed ([[EyeScream among]] [[AnArmAndALeg other]] [[NoKillLikeOverkill things]]) was set off because of a FLARP session gone wrong [[spoiler: in which Vriska hurled Tavros off a cliff, crippling him]]. Trolls take their games ''seriously.''

* In ''Webcomic/DatingATeamMagmaGrunt'' Brandon challenges the Team Aqua grunt to a duel for making fun of his girlfriend. Silly, but standard for Pokemon. Using [[OlympusMons Primal Groundon]] is not standard.

* Mal of ''Webcomic/HeadTrip'' warns her siblings in the tone and posture of a [[DrillSergeantNasty drill sergeant]] (even using the words "troops," "soldiers," and "mission") not to talk or make any sound whatsoever while watching the final season of ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Galactica]]''. She is dumbfounded to find that they don't in fact give a rat's behind about the show.

* In ''{{Triangle and Robert}}'', cooking and food is serious business. Cuisine magic powers the comic's most fearsome warriors, several of the characters have some sort of mystical cooking skill, most of them are descended from ancient lineages of battle-cooks, and it is eventually revealed that the entire universe is made out of pudding.

* ''SomethingPositive'' features the Teddy Bear Liberation Front. Plenty of people in RealLife find the idea of plushie fetishism weird or disturbing, but as fetishes go, it's pretty harmless. The TBLF think it's so disgusting they kill and torture people who make, sell, or use "yiffable" plushies.

* In {{Nectar Of The Gods}}, bartenders are the general focus of the Webcomic, in the {{Tournament Arc}} bartending and mixing cocktails is very {{Serious Business}}! Where just drinking a specific type of drink can either fix a person's emotional problems in an instant or drive to induced suicide.
* In ''LasLindas'', Rachael feels this way about the fights in the arena. [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=964 She cuts herself off before she can use this trope by name]].

* Emeril [=LeGoinegasque=], a supporting character in ''{{Achewood}}'', is the president of a club dedicated to the made-up hobby of Trashspotting, driving around on garbage day and building up extensively detailed personality profiles of people they've never even met based on what they throw out. He lives and breathes trashspotting, his character blog (yes, ''Achewood'' characters get their own blogs) was all about his trashspotting exploits, and he even had a trashspotting forum for a while. To him and his club, if to nobody else on Earth, other peoples' garbage is serious business.
