* ''WebAnimation/TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool'' tends to fall onto the middle part of the scale, with a tendency to bounce back and forth depending on the scenario and the characters in said scenario. Enough people in this show are either jerks, idiotic, or both...however, there are enough good-hearted people and ideas to balance out the {{Jerkass}}ersy.

* It can be hard, a lot of the time, to figure out just where ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' is on the overall scale, but it appears to be more towards the cynical side due to the {{downer|Ending}} nature of the endings for the most part and the fact that fate itself seems to crack down on optimistic characters. Hero types usually get themselves killed, and even if they don't die right away they usually see all their friends die first. All escape attempts are brutally crushed, and even [[spoiler:hacking the system and putting in a powerful computer virus that basically destroys all SOTF systems from the inside]] doesn't work until it's too late for anything to be done. By v2, all damage has been fixed, and the systems have been changed so they're literally impenetrable.

* HomestarRunner is set in a largely optimistic setting with a select few deeply cynical elements and characters. Strong Bad and The Cheat are always committing petty crimes, Bubs always swindles his customers, Coach Z has a thinly-veiled disturbing background, and the King of Town is largely friendless. Oh, and everybody dies in Teen Girl Squad.
