** Most of the humans (and part-human Celeste) in ''LastRes0rt'' are more Cynical than [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom their furry counterparts]].

* ''LastRes0rt'', being a {{Cyberpunk}} comic, accepts plenty of Cynicism... but the MoodDissonance with the otherwise bright settings and characters brings in the Idealism.

* In ''CityOfReality'' the titular city is so firmly embedded into "idealistic" end of the scale, it's actually [[http://cityofreality.com/2009/08/01/01-01-monsters/ kind of creepy]], to the point that you might think of it as a {{deconstruction}} of the concept itself. In fact, it's even noticed by some of the characters, and made into part of the plot. Later, however, they face inhabitants of the [[AlternateUniverse other worlds in the universe]], which tend far towards the opposite end of the scale, showing them just what they're fighting for. And ''against'', as their main opponents for Chapter Five turn out to be some of their own people, turned WellIntentionedExtremist as they attempt to protect Reality's way of life at any cost.

* In ''{{Harkovast}}'', a lot of the tension between the characters come from those that are more cynical (Shogun and Ki) and how their attitudes conflict with those that are more idealistic (Chen-Chen and Sit Muir).

* ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' plants itself firmly on the idealistic side with [[http://bobadventures.comicgenesis.com/d/20080722.html this]] encounter between Bob and WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Galatea.

* ''BasicInstructions'' is reasonably far over onto the cynical side, as it's full of snark and many characters are distinguishable by their flaws. In many ways, it's similar to ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}} in terms of cynicism.

* In a similar manner, The Game Master in ''DMOfTheRings'' is the only one trying to uphold some sort of idealism. This crumbles slowly as he becomes fed up with his extraordinarily-cynical players.

* ''WebComic/{{Precocious}}'': The characters of Max Zeit and Dionne Crup represent each respective extreme of the scale pretty well.

* ''Webcomic/{{Jack}}'' sits oh so very far on the cynical side, possibly up there with TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}. Half the premise is: "If life's not fair, why should the afterlife be?"

* ''{{Webcomic/Roommates}}'' is an interesting case. The characters are if not cynical but at least snarky and disillusioned. The world on the other hand is a ''WorldHalfFull'' that at least gives idealism a chance and where ThePowerOfFriendship actually works (finding friends being the harder part of the equation).

* Surprisingly for a webcomic set in a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] world, ''Webcomic/AMomentOfPeace'' is pretty idealistic. Despite the world being full of monsters, the main characters live very cheerfully wandering around, and they even befriend some monsters.
