* KarmaHoudini: Unsuprisingly, the [=PKing=] pros kill almost everyone without repercussions. Interestingly enough, the devs included Limb-Loss (a parody of Stat-Loss as was used in a [[UltimaOnline real game]]) for [=PKers=] when they were killed as a form of karmic retribution. This is the reason Fred the Dread has a hooked hand. And Drakoola had killed so many players before dying himself, he is literally only a nose by this point.

* ShoutOut: Directly to ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' at one early point. Not to mention that in many ways Clichequest seems to share a little too much in common with ''UltimaOnline'' and ''VideoGame/EverQuest'' to be a coincidence.

''[[http://www.thenoobcomic.com The Noob]]'' is yet another gaming {{webcomic}}, which sets itself apart from most others by focusing almost entirely on parodying {{MMORPG}}s. The story originally revolves around Ohforf'Sake, the PlayerCharacter of an [[TheEveryman Everyman]] gamer who [[WalkingTheEarth wanders aimlessly]] and [[IdiotHero cluelessly]] around the world of [[EverQuest Clichequest]], [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a brutally stereotypical fantasy MMORPG]] and gets into and barely survives ([[DeathIsCheap or not]]) all kinds of shenanigans.
