* BreadEggsMilkSquick: One of the strips of ''DAMN.'' had Shadow annoyed by Tails constantly texting him. The options his phone gave him to deal with this were "Delete messages", "Block this user forever" and "Kill all humanity".



* InNameOnly: Wil's comic ''Mushroom Kingdom Hearts'' has very little if anything to do with KingdomHearts, and is merely, as Wil himself put it, "a ''VERY'' loose parody". (Emphasis his.)

* NamesTheSame: Magazine/ElectronicGamingMonthly made an April Fool's Day joke about a crossover between ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' and ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' titled ''Mushroom Kingdom Hearts''. Wil's comic started before that announcement.

[[http://fireball20xl.com/ Fireball 20XL]] is (or rather, was) a webcomic hub created and run by Bryon Beaubien, also known as [=SuperPsyguy=], Psyguy, and Psy. Rather than being a site that hosts comics, it's essentially a website that links to other comic websites, whose authors post on the front page of Fireball 20XL whenever they update their own comics. The idea is for people to be able to check for updates on all the different comic sites, without actually having to go to each site individually and check.

The idea is for people to be able to check for updates on all the different comic sites, without actually having to go to each site individually and check.



As well as managing the site, Psy has also done several (hundreds) of comics, both on his own and collaborating with others. Possibly the most well-known is his graphic novel, ''Chaos Diamonds 3'', a "fanfic gone comic" set in the Sonic universe, but featuring Tails as the hero, Amy as the love interest and Sonic as the villain. It has been drawn by several artists, with Wil Brendel having worked on it for the longest time. (One of the few comics that has actually been finished, the end giving a teaser for a sequel, ''Chaos Diamonds 5,'' though this never came to fruition.) Another of Psy's more famous works is his still-ongoing comic ''Greed'', a Zelda/Mario crossover featuring Wario as the hero and Link as his sidekick. Many artists have worked on this comic, too, Cailen Crow so far holding the record for longest time worked on it (though he eventually had to be replaced due to being too busy to work on it). ''Red & Black'', a comic that speculates and expands upon the death of Maria and just what happened on the Space Colony ARK 50 years ago, is also popular. (Drawn by Fooly, written by Psy, it was cancelled halfway through, but Psy released the complete script online so fans could see the ending.)

* TheAbridgedSeries: Psy's "Bastardized" series, which so far include ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 TMNT: Bastardized]]'' (four episodes), ''[[Anime/SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie Sonic Bastardized]]'' (six episodes) and ''[[WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie Transformers Bastardized]]''. They've been taken down from Website/YouTube, but some are still floating around the internet here and there.

* AllMenArePerverts - Mr. O.M.A. has been accused of this a few times, due to having considerably more female characters than male characters. O.M.A. has admitted it's because he finds women more "flexible" and easier to work with. He's also gotten a lot of flack for his interest in transformation art, despite repeatedly stating that it's only an INTEREST and not an actual fetish, again because he tends to use females in his [=TF=] art (which is also because of the aforementioned reason).
