[[LampshadeHanging Lampshades hung]] in webcomics.
----
* Taken UpToEleven in Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}, Colonel Glass mentions not only the trope FacelessGoons, but the fact that there is a TVTropes page on it.
* ''Webcomic/TwiceBlessed'' hangs a lampshade on Cade Masters's description sounding like a MarySue on the [[http://www.twiceblessedcomic.com/?webcomic_post=2 first page]].
* ''Webcomic/GeorgeTheDragon'' hangs a lampshade on the mysterious absence of the [[http://www.drunkduck.com/George_the_Dragon/?p=690078 main character's wings.]]
* ''Webcomic/CheckerboardNightmare'' hanged a lamshade on hanging lampshades [[http://www.checkerboardnightmare.com/retro/20021206.shtml all the way back in 2002]].
* ''Webcomic/BittersweetCandyBowl'' does it periodically, particularly regarding the [[FurryFandom anthropomorphic characters' lack of clothing]] on the rare occaisions that they do show up clothed.
* ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'':
** David Morgan-Mar describes this trope and [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1718.html does it himself to the unfunniness of the comic]], thus applying Lampshade Hanging to Lampshade Hanging itself.
** [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1922.html He does it again in the "Space" theme]]. Actually, he lampshades lampshading -- and references us as well.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' lampshades TabletopGames tropes endlessly.
** [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0546.html Strip #546]] refers to LampshadeHanging by name (as seen in this page's image) and thus lampshades Lampshade Hanging.
** And it's not even the first time the comic did so. [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0471.html "Will you stop pointing out the repetitiveness of the B-plots and hurry up?!?"]]
** Here is [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0736.html another strip]] filled to the brim with lampshades, almost to the point of being an example of TropeName.
* ''TabletopGame/NinjaBurger'': In [[http://www.ninjaburger.com/nbcrew/85.shtml this strip]], Max ninja tell Steve ninja something every ninja already know about shadow clone technique. Steve ninja is understandably confused.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-11-26 "Now if you'll excuse me, I'm out of exposition."]]
** [[MediumAwareness "I thought you were out of exposition."]] ''"I am an'' '''''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny ENDLESS BARREL]]''''' ''of exposition!"''
** [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2004-02-20 "What kind of company would assign that?" "A Shady one"]]
** [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-03-15 "It doesn't look all that -- wait, where'd you get that map?"]]
** After Justin observes that a fire monster appears to be made of "solid fire that doesn't burn", [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-10-04 the action cuts to a student asking her physics teacher why he is crying.]]
*** Also, [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-10-11 "So... He wasn't fire...but water extinguished him...?" "The professor's crying again."]]
** [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2010-04-26 "Any writer who takes something no one was questioning and tries to explain it is a hack.]]
** [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2005-09-08 "Scientific logic has no place in these panels!"]]
* "Merciless" is the best word to describe the manner in which ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' applies this trope, usually while subverting or justifying the trope being lampshaded. See TeamPet and TheSmurfettePrinciple.
* Pretty much any comic by S. Sakurai (''Muertitos'', ''Webcomic/GorgeousPrincessCreamyBeamy'', ''Webcomic/{{Intragalactic}}'') will be so crawling with lampshade hangings that choosing specific examples would be pretty hard.
* Turns up plenty in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. Just take a look at [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=990812 this]] strip:
-->'''Torg:''' ''NothingCanSaveUsNow!''\\
'''Zoe:''' What was ''that'' about?\\
'''Torg:''' It's a classic cliché! In this type of situation, when someone says "Nothing can save us now," it's followed by someone showing up to save us.\\
'''Zoe:''' You mean like "[[TemptingFate It can't get any worse]]"?\\
'''K'z'k the Soul Collector:''' ''(suddenly appears)'' Hi kids!
** Or [[http://www.sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/20000528 this]] strip:
-->'''Riff:''' A dynamic character with an ability to survive certain death, and a questionable death scene leaving no corpse? Face it, we'll never see ''her'' again!
* T-rex of ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics'' explains in [[http://www.qwantz.com/archive/001425.html this comic.]]
* ''SomethingPositive'' hangs a lampshade on one of its longest-running elements in [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp03112009.shtml this strip]]:
-->'''Pee-Jee:''' How'd he get into your ice cream? That makes no sense.\\
'''Davan:''' He's a 30+ year old pudding cat who can travel through drains but '''this''' is where your ability to believe is gonna be taxed?
** And continued on:
-->'''Pee-Jee:''' Even so, there's a point where reality dictates--\\
'''Davan:''' How'd that woman at your job die again?\\
''(fact: she was eaten by a ceiling alligator)''\\
'''Pee-Jee:''' ... this ice cream could use sprinkles.
** And again:
-->'''Pee-Jee''': Goddamnit! Why does everything revolve around sex around here?
-->'''Davan''': ...bad writing...
-->'''Pee-Jee''': Huh?
-->'''Davan''': I'm sorry, I'm just reading John Grisham for the first time. This writing is awful.
* In ''[[AbeKroenen Abe&Kroenen]]'', Abe lampshades ''two'' of the comics' most common gags (characters pulling a stealth Batman-esque appearance and Kroenen's thick German accent) at the same time. [[http://abe-kroenen.livejournal.com/64278.html#cutid1 To be fair, he was pretty pissed off at the time.]]
-->'''Abe:''' Are you people in a ''club'' or something?
* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' does this on a regular basis, and even hung a lampshade on itself in May 2009 [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2009/05/21/episode-1130-so-close-yet-so-far/ courtesy of Black Mage:]]
-->'''Black Mage:''' That's it, I've had enough. This whole goddamn adventure has been nothing but pointless build ups toward pay offs that '''never happen.'''
** Epic lampshade hanginge: first, the other warriors claim they [[spoiler:[[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2007/02/06/episode-805-old-news/ have already taken the quest to find the wind orb]]]] -- which is taken as a joke, due to the life-in-a-game nature of the strip. However, 10 months later, the light warriors realize that [[spoiler:[[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2007/10/16/episode-907-animal-companion/ they can't find the wind orb because the other warriors have already taken it]]]]. Partly ruined by discovering that 5 months later, [[spoiler: [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2008/03/15/episode-967-tis-but-a-scratch/ Muffin the dragon had the orb all along]]]] - but still epic.
* ''Webcomic/RealLifeComics'' lampshades lampshading [[http://www.reallifecomics.com/archive/010911.html here]].
* ''IWasKidnappedByLesbianPiratesFromOuterSpace'': [[http://rosalarian.com/lesbianpirates/?p=2091 "It appears we're getting dangerously close to a plot hole. ...I mean black hole."]]
* ''SilentHillPromise'' lampshades SmokingIsCool as its protagonist [[http://greer-the-raven.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2sgf74 lights up]].
* ''AnsemRetort'' gives us this beauty.
-->'''Aerith:''' I feel like I'm in a bad [[ShowWithinAShow TV show]], which is ironic since I am in a bad TV show.
* [[http://www.itswalky.com/d/20000415.html This]] and [[http://www.itswalky.com/d/19980115.html This]] one from an early ''ItsWalky''.
* [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/memberimages/sh090827you_can_call_me.jpg "How did you even print those banners?"]]
* ''Webcomic/CuantaVida'':
-->'''BLU Spy:''' [[ClosetShuffle I seem to be spending a lot more time in closets since I got 'ere.]]
* ''BobAndGeorge'': "This ending ''sucks.''"
* ''TheLastDaysOfFOXHOUND'' does this a lot concerning the rather... [[YouFailBiologyForever Tenous... Grasp of genetics and biology]] found in the ''Franchise/MetalGear''-verse. Mantis or Naomi are usually the OnlySaneMan in this regard, but of course all these biologically impossible events keep on happening anyway.
* Sirkowski, the creator of ''Miss Dynamite'' recently created and sold "22 Fan Service panels that always work!!" An homage to [[http://boingboing.net/2006/08/18/wally-woods-22-panel.html Wally Wood]] that features several [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] to fanservice-related Tropes. Gems include [[http://www.missdynamite.com/gallery/spgm/gal/gallery2011/2011gal0002.jpg Absolute Cleavage]], ClothingDamage, [[UnderBoobs Under Boob]], [[http://www.missdynamite.com/gallery/spgm/gal/gallery2011/2011gal0011.jpg Erotic Eating]], BareYourMidriff, and others.
* ''Fans'', among many good examples: [[http://www.faans.com/books1-6/index.php?p=259 "By cartoon rules, we would be attacked as soon as I said 'That's a cartoonish way of thinking,' just to prove me wrong."]] The joke is that the attack which (of course) immediately follows is only a distraction from the main plotline, though it foreshadows a later plotline.
* In TropeOverdosedTheWebcomic, Bob [[http://tropeoverdosed.pcriot.com/?p=42 lampshades]] the fact that he lives in a SchizoTech universe.
* In ''Webcomic/GastroPhobia'': [[http://www.gastrophobia.com/index.php?date=2011-04-01 "Check it out, those guys are fortuitously discussing subject matter pertinent to our current task."]]
* In ''{{Sheldon}}'': Arthur, a talking duck, [[http://www.sheldoncomics.com/archive/061116.html says]] to the non-talking animals that, in a piece of fiction, "If one animal talks, they all gotta talk. You gotta keep it consistent."
* ''DarkLegacyComics'' [[http://www.darklegacycomics.com/297.html asks]], "What do you think this is, some kind of badly written melodrama?!"
* Often done in [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Chrono_Redux Chrono Redux]] in part to make fun of the comic itself, but also to make fun of the game "Chrono Trigger" when these sorts of things happens in the game. These are usually brought up by Chrono in internal monologues because he's mute.
* In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', it's a frequent plot point that [[DarkIsNotEvil creatures who look evil turn out to be actually nice]]. So when Blue [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=991 summons]] [[EldritchAbomination a Gol-shogeg]]:
-->'''Antimony:''' You - you're trying to ''summon'' it? But it's very dangerous!\\
'''Student 1:''' Ah, don't worry!\\
'''Student 2:''' It prob'ly looks mean but turns out ta be a nice guy!\\
'''Student 3:''' Yeah, dat always hap-\\
''[CRASH]''
* ''{{Spacetrawler}}'': The narrative regularly juggles three or four subplots, often timing the transitions between subplots just in time for gratuitous cliffhangers. There's also a FramingDevice that Nogg is telling the entire story to Mr. Zorilla--and Mr. Zorilla eventually gets just as ticked about these shifts as the readers do. [[http://spacetrawler.com/2011/11/13/spacetrawler-185/ On this page]], just as a major mystery about spacetrawler construction is about to be cleared up...
-->'''Mr. Zorilla:''' You're going to change to another storyline aren't you.\\
'''Nogg:''' Meanwhile, back in Kppfing.\\
'''Mr. Zorilla:''' I hate you.\\
''[On the next page, Mr. Zorilla has forced Nogg out of the car.]''\\
'''Nogg:''' Okay ''okay!'' I'll continue telling you about how spacetrawlers are made.\\
'''Mr. Zorilla:''' Alright. You can get back in.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' is utterly rife with visual and verbal {{callback}}s. Late in Act 5, Doc Scratch calls attention to the fact that these keep happening, and names the phenomenon "circumstantial simultaneity" (as opposed to mere temporal simultaneity). Then, in Act 6, [[spoiler:Dirk Strider]] lampshades it again:
-->'''TT:''' I feel like you've said something like that before.\\
'''TT:''' Different statements, but in that exact syntax. \\
''[...]''\\
'''TT:''' That actually sounds familiar too.\\
'''TT:''' Are you sure you haven't said something like that before?
** Homestuck tends to hang lampshades a lot notably on its use of AshesToCrashes and OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank.
* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' the Jägergenerals [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20120518 comment]] that crashing airships explode only "in dose cheap novels". [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20120528 A few strips later]], General Khrizhan blows one up with a [[MoreDakka huge machine gun]].
* Too many to count in WebComic/CommanderKitty, but none stand out quite as much as Nin Wah [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2010/05/09/freaky-things/ lampshading how Mittens and Socks]] [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal don't wear clothes]].
-->...Which brings up ''another'' freaky thing about this ship!
* Used to [[http://outthere.keenspot.com/d/20130208.html subtly celebrate]] ''Webcomic/OutThere'' passing 2000 strips.
* In Episode Two of ''Webcomic/{{Space Kid}}'' , '''Pizmo''' points out to '''Dr. Conquest''' the unnecessary complexity of his plot to destroy a city with a giant robot squid.
* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' isn't prone to such self-awareness, but does lampshade Gary's ExtremeDoormat status in strip #795 (September 24, 2013, marginally NSFW); "It's like he has no will of his own." For an added twist, this recognition '''also''' immediately reinforces Gary's CluelessChickMagnet status, as he becomes a target for seduction -- by a rather scary {{dominatrix}}.
