* ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'''s success led not only to a swarm of gamer WebComics, but a swarm of gamer Web Comics starring TwoGamersOnACouch.
* ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'' and ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' did the same thing for sprite comics.
* ''Webcomic/DMOfTheRings'' was the the first "Screencap RPG Webcomic". Once it ended, ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'' creator [[Tropers/{{Dmmaus}} David Morgan-Mar]] took some of the words of Shamus and Adam Bloom as a challenge, and he got the Comic Irregulars to put together to create ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids''. Since then, at least three more Screencap RPG Webcomics have appeared, based on ''[[http://bloody-nipple.groboclown.net Conan the Barbarian]]'', ''[[http://sidewaysspa.lucidfox.org Stargate]]'', ''[[Webcomic/BendersAndBrawlers Avatar: the Last Airbender]]'', and ''[[FanFic/OnePieceGrandLine3Point5 One Piece]]''. All of them credit ''DM of the Rings'' as at least one of the sources that inspired them. There's now even one based on ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', ''[[http://friendshipisdragons.thecomicseries.com/comics/first/ Friendship Is Dragons]]''.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' inspired a lot of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''-based comics in general; often using "a compelling story [[RPGMechanicsVerse with Dungeons & Dragons physics]]" as the premise. Even the fans have been putting this trope to use going as far as creating such comics in Burlew's stick-figure art style.
** A good example of this is the webcomic ''Webcomic/AntiHeroes''.
** It also inspired ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation'', a stick-figure comic based on ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}''.
** ''Webcomic/ServantsOfTheImperium'' is another stick-figure RPG comic, based on ''TabletopGame/DarkHeresy''.
* Similarly, ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' has spawned a few more stick figure comics.
* It's also becoming popular for non-stick-figure comics to go stick-figure for fillers. "[[Webcomic/GhastlysGhastlyComic Shirt Guy Xom]]" appears to be a ShoutOut to "Shirt Guy Dom" (as ''GGC'' often riffs on ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'')... which, in turn, was a ShoutOut to "[[Webcomic/SluggyFreelance Shirt Guy Tom]]".
* ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' spawned quite a few fancomics such as ''[[http://project-future.xepher.net/ Project Future]]'' and [[http://www.ariannia.com/ The Foxfire Chronicles]]''... And somehow also inspired ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt'', at least in terms of the art style. The main difference is that both ''Project Future'' and ''The Foxfire Chronicles'' use Cubi outright as a central locus; ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt'', while having a few characters that appear Cubi-esque, considers these characters as a variant of Celeste, which have distinctly different powers and otherwise are very not-Cubi. (Also, evil.)
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' and ''Webcomic/{{Goats}}'' largely paved the way for WorldOfWeirdness webcomics like ''Webcomic/CollegeRoomiesFromHell'', ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', and ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja''.
* Fans from ''Webcomic/NintendoAcres'' are known to duplicate the premise as well.
* ''Webcomic/TheWotch'' is almost solely responsible for the creation of many, ''many'' GenderBender [[TransformationComic Transformation Comics]], some of which (or to others, all of them) are FetishFuel with very little in the way of actual plot besides men being randomly turned into [[AttractiveBentGender very attractive women]]. The good ones don't exclusively revolve around it, with the victim(s) also having actual ''lives'', problems and CharacterDevelopment. The others are the exact opposite, in which Gender Bender is the center of the universe which ''everything'' in existence revolves around, particularly anyone male.
* Parodied as a major running theme of ''Webcomic/CheckerboardNightmare''. Checkerboard Nightmare wants his webcomic to be a massive hit, so he constantly and shamelessly copies anything that catches his attention. Even his appearance and name were plagiarized from a guy he knew in school, Striped Reverie.
* ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'' inspired many to copy its interactive faux AdventureGame style; it was the GenrePopularizer for {{Interactive Comic}}s.
* The ''Webcomic/NerfNow'' strip "[[http://www.nerfnow.com/comic/749 Clone]]" mocks this.
* ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' is among the oldest of several "monster adventurer" comics, including ''Webcomic/RustyAndCo'' and ''[[http://bythebook.smackjeeves.com/comics/ By the Book]]''.
* ''[[http://www.mezzacotta.net/planetofhats/ Planet of Hats]]'' by David Morgan-Mar is a weekly, 12-panel, episode-by-episode parody of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', named after [[PlanetOfHats a trope assiciated with the series]]. It is openly and unabashedly inspired by Shaenon Garrity's ''[[http://www.shaenon.com/monsteroftheweek/ Monster of the Week]]'', a weekly, 12-panel, episode-by-episode parody of ''Series/TheXFiles'', named after [[MonsterOfTheWeek a trope assiciated with the series]].
