* In the webcomic ''Webcomic/TerrorIsland,'' one arc involving a competition to skateboard over a river ends with the alien baddie teleporting over the river instead; he wins, because "teleporting" is [[http://www.terrorisland.net/strips/257.html one of the few things ''not'' prohibited by the contest's rules]], as the people drawing it up [[PunyEarthlings couldn't conceive of it]].
* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'':
** A hilarious variation occurs, where the crew of the mercenary ship effectively avoid any litigation by becoming legally appointed bounty hunters, hunting members of the lawyer collective. They could still be sued if anyone apart from them used non-Collective attorneys, but Massey is the only non-Collective lawyer we've seen, and he's a member of the company.
--->'''Tagon''' (Having just shot someone's lawyer-drones): Get as mad as you want. You're going to have a hard time suing me.
** Presumably, after [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2006-09-06 this strip]] there's now a company policy regarding air vents, where there wasn't one previously.
** Tailor is a clothing fabrication robot given to Captain Tagon by his father. The captain hates robots, his father, and isn't particularly crazy about new clothes, so he refuses to agree to any fittings. Tailor freaks out about not being able to fulfill his purpose, until the company doctor points out that the captain is responsible for clothing the entire company--therefore, Tailor can fulfill his purpose by creating clothing for her.
--->'''Tailor:''' I'll have to padlock a couple logic gates, but I think it can work.
* Therkla invokes this trope to her advantage in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0562.html this page]] of ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''.
** [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0897.html More recently]], the IFCC used this trope to their advantage via their [[DealWithTheDevil deal]] with Vaarsuvius: [[spoiler: they never said their brief ownership of V's soul would take place ''after their death''.]]
** And [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots1000.html later still]], Roy exploits a loophole in the rules for the Godsmoot, allowing him to [[spoiler:attempt to kill the High Priest of Hel, negating the goddess's vote]]:
--->'''Wrecan:''' But the rules of the Godsmoot are unambiguous: [[spoiler:A bodyguard who raises arms against the priest of another god must be put to death immediately]]!\\
'''Roy:''' Are there any rules about what happens if [[spoiler:a bodyguard attacks '''their own''' priest]]?\\
'''Wrecan:''' ...No.
*** A little later, that loophole gets closed when [[spoiler: the High Priest of Hel transfers his position to another vampire as he leaves to dominate the Dwarven Elders. Since Roy wasn't designated as that vampire's bodyguard, he's not allowed to kill her.]] However, he quickly exploits another loophole to ensure that [[spoiler: Malak's staff]] doesn't fall into their hands.
---->'''Roy''': The Order of the Stick is not responsible for any damage that may occur during the delivery of unholy relics.
* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'':
** Red Mage would like to direct your attention to the [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2004/01/20/episode-374-so-many-valid-points/ Air Bud clause]] (Ain't no rule that says you can't use dice in rock-paper-scissors). This is also Black Mage's [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2003/12/04/episode-359-flawless-victories/ solution to an obstacle course]]: Ain't no rule that you can't just [[DungeonBypass blow it up]]!
--->'''Dwarf:''' Wow. No one's ever tried ''that'' before.\\
'''Red Mage:''' That's because they weren't Bearded Warriors [[ExactWords like us]].\\
'''Dwarf:''' That's a point.\\
'''Red Mage:''' Yes, and one with no veiled meanings, either.
** Also [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2009/07/16/episode-1153-federalist-interpretation-of-physics/ here]]:
--->'''Black Mage:''' We're going to grab the non-fabric of this anti-space time and rip it a new one.\\
'''Red Mage:''' Is that even possible? I'm not sure this place actually exists.\\
'''Black Mage:''' Then there's no rule that says we can't.
* In the webcomic ''Webcomic/BratHalla'', there ain't no rule saying that a god dueling another as a tie-breaker in the [[TournamentArc Pantheon Games]] can't call in his independently sentient, disembodied eyeball in a HumongousMecha to help him. For extra amusement, after t'other god tries to cite its absence in the rules, that there ain't no rule saying you ''can'', the eyeball in its mech comes in and cites the rule in question. [[http://brat-halla.com/comic/233-pantheon-games-an-eye-for-the-rules/ Linksky]].
* According to ''Webcomic/TheWhiteboard'', there is no rule forbidding the use of cross-country skis in paintball games. Doc checked ''very'' carefully.
* Emily wins her first race in ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}''. Ain't no rule against driving 25 mph once you're ahead of your opponent!
* ''Webcomic/AkiAlliance'': There's a rule against wearing a headset to receive outside help during a Scrabble competition. Oddly enough, there's no rule against wearing a headset to give outside help to someone else during a Scrabble competition.
* Subverted in [[http://www.fantasycomic.com/index.php?p=c553 this strip]] of ''Webcomic/ChasingTheSunset'' where there ''is'' a specific rule about knocking out a minotaur and stealing its keys to defeat a magic trial. Because it has already been abused, and the very first rule was that whenever someone says there AintNoRule, [[ObviousRulePatch that rule is immediately added]].
* In ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}'' Sixx plans to win her bet with Butterfly by surrendering her title to Laura and becoming her slave so that she can take part in the contest directly.
* ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'': The Domain version of the Website/{{Facebook}} game Farmville [[http://www.kevinandkell.com/2010/kk0905.html apparently doesn't disallow players from raiding their own henhouse]].
* Website/GaiaOnline's four towns engaged in loophole abuse during the "Reject Olympics" plot, by recruiting nonhuman athletes for their teams.
** [[EvilutionaryBiologist Johnny]] K. [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Gambino]] was apparently forbidden from creating new [[ZombieApocalypse zombie serums]]. So for the Reject Olympics, he pulled an old prototype from storage instead.
* [[http://www.explosm.net/comics/2243/ In this]] ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'' strip, a character manages to get around the classic [[ThreeWishes three wishes limit clause]] ("A wish cannot be used to grant more wishes") by wishing for more genies.
* The Constitution didn't provide for insane bunny senators and therefore did not lay down a rule about what to do when one goes missing. In ''Webcomic/PricklyCity'', this matters.
* ''WebComic/EerieCuties'': The bonus story of vol.2's print edition has Blair trick Kade and Ace into playing a game of [[spoiler: [[StripPoker "Strip]] TabletopGame/TrivialPursuit"]] against Layla and Brooke, during which, he rigs the game so [[spoiler: he can see the girls naked]]. Layla guesses wrong on her next turn, leaving her no choice but to [[spoiler: take off her bra]]. However, Brooke saves her by [[spoiler: cupping Layla's breasts from behind]]. When the boys object, she counters:
-->'''Brooke: (smug)''' "Ha! You boys haven't won anything yet!"
-->'''Kad:''' "No fair!"
-->'''Ace:''' "That's against the rules!"
-->'''Brooke: (smug grin)''' "I'm technically made of snakeskin, so I [[spoiler: count as clothing]]!"
* Protoman in ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'' does this with his {{Three Laws Complian|t}}ce.
-->'''George''': You're a robot! You're not allowed to kill humans!\\
'''Protoman''': That only applies if I think he's a human, which I don't.
* Tristan pulls this in ''Webcomic/AngelMoxie'' so she can get away with a NonUniformUniform in the form of striped stockings. She [[http://www.venisproductions.com/angelmoxie/archives/4/8/486.html even recites the specific rule]], noting that while there ''are'' limits on what kind of ''socks'' can be worn, stockings are allowed as an alternative and there are no such limitations for them.
* Take one tabletop-gaming RulesLawyer from our universe and drop him into an RPGMechanicsVerse with the instructions to "grant our side victory ''by any means possible''". You now have the plot of ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}''.
** Some of the natives are extremely adept at this as well. For instance when Thinkamancer Maggie asks her thickheaded, jerkass overlord Stanley if she can give him a suggestion. When he says yes, he immediately takes a Suggestion spell in the face.
* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'':
** [[http://xkcd.com/115/ "There's no rule on the books saying a meerkat can't play rugby."]] Though, according to the AltText, there ''are'' rules against gorillas and [[Film/AirBud golden retrievers]].
** In one of Black Hat's schemes, he takes the observation that standard internet server racks and beehive frames are both 19 inches and have similar pitches and runs with it, noting that most web hosting [=TOSes=][[labelnote:*]]Terms of Service[[/labelnote]] [[http://xkcd.com/1439/ don't mention beehives]] in what's not allowed. The AltText calls back to the example listed above, noting that most [=TOSes=] also don't prevent dogs from playing baseball in the server facility.
** [[https://xkcd.com/1086/ This strip]] has Black Hat repeatedly trying to go around rules on meta-wishes in very convoluted ways. None seems to work.
** "[[http://xkcd.com/1552/ There's nothing in the rulebook]] that says we can't kill and eat your dog."
** Played with in [[https://xkcd.com/1593/ #1593]], where Beret Guy [[GretzkyHasTheBall seems to believe]] that stealing a base in baseball is loophole abuse. His reaction is, "Everyone's real mad but I guess they checked the rules and there's nothing that says he can't do that."
* ''Webcomic/FruitIncest'' double-subverts this one in [[http://fruitincest.com/archives/rule/ "Rule"]]. There's no rule against a duck playing on the school soccer team, but there ''is'' a rule that every player on the team must be enrolled as a student. But there's no rule against a duck being enrolled as a student, either.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Rhapsodies}}'' the local office of the [[CelestialBureaucracy Department of Minor Nuisances]] is unable to covertly support the Circle Band due to rules and budget concerns. [[http://rhapsodies.wpmorse.com/?p=2571 Nothing wrong with doing it overtly though.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'': A vital survival skill for robots and other engineered intelligences, such as the uplifted wolf Florence Ambrose.
** [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2000/fc01962.htm For instance, to get into a showing that only allows dogs if they are helper dogs, Florence claims to be there in case Winston needs help differentiating subatomic particles. (The usher wishes they had quantum mechanics helper dogs when he was in college.)]]
** Another case: Robots are hard-coded to obey and protect humans. When one Jerkass boss fakes a heart attack in order to get to a meeting on time, this response forces them to abandon Florence in freezing water in the middle of a hurricane. With a few tips from Sam, [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff400/fv00343.htm the robots retaliate]] by "protecting" the boss from things that are bad for him, like coffee, sugar, and stress from meetings.
---> '''Sam''': I've never heard maniacal laughter from a robot before. It feels good to have brought something new and wonderful into the world.
* uu from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' does this to Calliope (UU) during their chess game by making his king and queen wear hats so UU thinks they're the opposite pieces. As he points out, there's technically no rule against it, and he never had either of them move in a way they shouldn't have... Calliope is, naturally, very unimpressed, and when she plays on only to lose to him she {{Rage Quit}}s rather impressively.
* Immortals in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' are only allowed to guide and empower mortals without risking the wrath of other immortals. Those are the rules, here are the loopholes:
** [[spoiler:Helena and Demetrius tricked consent from a younger Susan and Nanase by giving them the false impression that they were the only two who could stop a monster. This ended up causing Susan enormous emotional damage, which later deeply angered Jerry, another immortal, when he learned her story]].
** Chaos has twisted the rules into pretzels by [[spoiler:''forcibly'' empowering unsuspecting mortals and pumping enough power into them to make them susceptible to suggestion bordering on MindControl]]. Her son notes when explaining this, "even immortals have loopholes." We find out that this is an even bigger loophole later, because [[spoiler:Chaos wasn't the one who did that. Another immortal left clues that made her son think it was her, thus remaining hidden for months]].
** An immortal can only attack a mortal in self-defense, [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2010-06-28 but according to Jerry]] Grace is lucky he's a "wise and jolly" immortal ("Like Santa Claus!") because making a threat display, like the way Grace did, towards a more flinchy immortal would have been enough to make that immortal panic and attack the offender.
** An immortal is [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2107 "pushing guide and empower as far as they'll bend"]] by [[spoiler:appearing as a godlike figure in the middle of a crowded mall and lying to a creature convinced that immortals are forbidden from lying]].
** As it turns out, the rules aren't an agreement between immortals, but a sort of species-wide curse they cast on themselves. If an immortal breaks the rules, the other immortals don't decide to fight them. The other immortals automatically gain knowledge of what happened, and the power to work together to force the offending immortal to [[ResurrectiveImmortality reset]]. The immortals wouldn't have agreed to this if there was some way to break the rules on accident, so only the opinion of the immortal breaking the rules matters on deciding whether or not something is breaking the rules. This is why Chaos can get away with so much loophole abuse: She's crazy and thinks everything she's doing is within the bounds of the rules.
** Subverted when Voltaire vows not to attempt to kill Elliot. Mr. Verres points out that if Voltaire ''successfully'' kills Elliot, it's not an "attempt." Voltaire disagrees, and thinks that's a really stupid loophole, but rewords his vow to close that loophole anyway.
** Chaos [[spoiler:increased the overall magic concentration in Moperville to incredibly high levels, allowing novices to use spells that they should never be able to. When Sarah learns of this, she immediately realizes that Chaos basically "empowered" the entire town. Furthermore, when Chaos realizes she has to fix what she did, she needs help from a mortal (which falls under the "guiding" rule), since she's not allowed to "dis-empower," even though she was behind the original empowering]].
** Magic itself is a quasi-sentient force that wants to be used and known about, but not widely known about or able to be used by many, which would seem to be contradictory goals since there's nothing stopping magic users from telling others about it ''and'' providing them the means to use it themselves, nor can magic simply go away. [[spoiler: But there's nothing saying magic can't change the way it works, so that previous methods of using it are rendered useless, and only a few rare individuals will be initially able to use it again. Chaos/Pandora witnessed the last time this happened several centuries ago.]]
* In ''Webcomic/BadMachinery'': [[http://www.scarygoround.com/index.php?date=20130116 Here.]]
-->'''Erin:''' I can't exactly tell [the police] there's a devil-man sucking up people's SOULS.\\
'''Lottie:''' Yeah, it does sound dippy. And also probably not even a crime.\\
'''Mildred:''' THE LAW IS AN ASS.
* From ''[[http://lolilovesvenom.livejournal.com/ Loli Loves Venom]]'', [[http://lolilovesvenom.livejournal.com/19503.html when the little girl comes home]] with the [[ComicBook/{{Venom}} Venom-symbiote]]:
-->'''Girl:''' Oh Moooom!... I found a new friend! Can I keep it, pleeeeaase?!\\
'''Mom:''' As long as it's not a dog.
* ''Webcomic/SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal''
** A strip involves a lawyer exploiting a loophole in the [[ThreeWishes classic genie rules]] by [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/?id=2740 renaming wishes to "splorks" and wishing that the rules only applied to the word "wish"]].
** Another strip does a similar joke, except tying it to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absolute_value the absolute value]] [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/?id=3279 of wishes.]]
** Parodied in [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/last-meal "Last Meal"]], where a convict asks for his last meal to be the executioner, and they have to comply.
--> '''Executioner''': "On the one hand I'm mad, but on the other hand ''wow'' what a loophole."
* Peonio, a power hungry fairy from ''Webcomic/FairyDust'', wants to bribe two trolls into staying on his island, where only tiny sized peoples live. When one of them says that he would stay if he had women of the proper size, using his friend as a standard, Peonio brings him women the size of a dragon hatchling that was given the same name as his friend.
* ''WebComic/DragonBallMultiverse'':
** Only two people can enter the arena at a time. Keyword being ''enter''. Meaning that Goten and Trunks can get away with fusing as Gotenks, entering the arena, and eventually defusing and competing as two people cause hey, only ''one'' actually entered the arena. [[spoiler: Which happened with ''two'' incarnations of Gotenks. This also accidentally happened to U9 Videl when her Z Sword broke and released the old Kai in it. Since he came from the sword he was ruled an ally and allowed to stay in the arena.]]
** [[spoiler: Much later, U3 Raichi takes this trope [[UpToEleven up to eleven]], where he summons the Frost Demons, all of Planet Vegeta AND the previously defeated combatants. Doesn't stop U13 Vegeta from instantly wiping a few of them out.]]
** A few characters have taken advantage of the rule made to prevent excessive hiding or leaving, that if the judges cannot see you for more than thirty seconds you forfeit. XXI uses it against [[spoiler: U16 Vegetto, trapping him in another dimension where time ran differently just to be sure]] and U18 Uub uses it on U11 Buu, vaporizing him down to one small final bit and then putting that bit in a container before he could reform. Technically the judges could not see Buu, and thus he lost.
* ''Webcomic/PvP'': Apparently, playing as the [[{{Series/DoctorWho}} Doctor]] in a medieval-themed LARP is [[http://www.pvponline.com/comic/2013/04/11/Fielddoctor absolutely possible]].
* The Chrome Cowboy discusses the concept with ''Webcomic/BladeBunny'' [[http://www.bladebunny.com/comic/book-16-page-5/ here.]]
* In ''Webcomic/MMBN7TheWorldTournament'' [[spoiler: Dr. Hikari realises in his match against Ryu & Cosmoman that Cosmoman's Infinite Cosmos attack locates the enemy and fires off an infinite number of meteors at them, but Cosmoman needs to actually ''see'' the opponent for it to work.]]
* In the fantasy comic strip ''Webcomic/{{Yamara}}'', a toad familiar is tasked with bringing a newly-revived ex-vampire her first non-blood meal in centuries. The cleric forbids him from serving her meat, while another character threatens him with punishment if he offers her fruits or vegetables. [[TakeAThirdOption His solution]] is to serve her cream of mushroom soup.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Digger}}'', [[spoiler:Descending-Helix made a deal that he be paid for his work by making him and all his descendants immune to divine interference and prophecy]]. A few thousand years (and the laws of genetics) later, his great*n-granddaughter gets roped into that business anyway, thanks to the interference of a prophetic ''slug''. His ghost admits that he had neglected to fill that particular loophole.
* ''Webcomic/{{Paranatural}}'' has hitball, dodgeball under a different name so as to get around the dodgeball ban. In the game itself, a girl is covered with duct tape to avoid getting out, because you'd only be out if a ball hits you then the floor.
* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Mikkel pulls two of these in a row in Chapter 10, after Sigrun refuses to take him on a mission. He simply leaves on his own, claiming that Sigrun never told him not to leave the [[AwesomePersonnelCarrier Cat-Tank]], she just told him he couldn't go with ''her''. When Tuuri points out that there ''is'' a rule against leaving non-immunes without a guard, he indicates Lalli, who is both immune and a capable fighter... and is so deeply asleep that multiple people moving him around and touching his face has failed to wake him.
* In ''Webcomic/MenageA3'', Matt comes to believe that he's put Kiley off men for life by lying to her, which lead to them breaking up. So he swears to himself that he'll get her back, and that he won't sleep with other women from now on. However, he's bisexual -- so this ''doesn't'' put a stop to his ([[TheCasanova very energetic]]) sex life.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'', demons making a deal with mortals have to obey the terms of their deal to the letter, or they are revoked and the demon is horribly punished. When Saves a Fox and Dies Horribly are searching for the Orb of Bloodlight, they find that it is guarded by demons. One demon holds an orb and promises it in exchange for a mortal soul. Dies, knowing his MeaningfulName is going to have to trigger sooner or later, immediately agrees to the terms so that Fox can at least get the orb. Of course it's a fake. [[spoiler:Too bad for the demon, she agreed to give the orb in exchange for ''a'' mortal soul. Due to the artificial hand that Klik gave him, a bit carelessly, Dies Horribly actually now has ''two'' souls. So the deal is revoked, causing Dies to return to life ''with his [[ProphecyTwist prophetic death having already technically happened]]'', ''and'' the demon gets hit with a heaping dose of LaserGuidedKarma. Thus, the heroes ''accidentally'' abuse Loophole Abuse, canceling out deliberate Loophole Abuse.]]
* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'': When it comes time to choose a new Court Medium for dealing with the Forest, everyone is sure it will be Annie who gets the position, and Coyote has been not-so-subtly hinting that he wants it to happen as well. The Headmaster, however, wanting to curb Annie's behavioral problems, names Andrew the Medium instead. [[TheTrickster Coyote]] immediately turns it around on the Court and appoints Annie as ''the Forest's'' Medium for dealing with the Court, declaring her an honorary member of the Forest (as she had lived there for a summer). The Court has no right to interfere in Forest matters, so Coyote and Annie get what they want anyway.
* Webcomic/SkinHorse: The titular team provides services to non-humans, defined as "[[http://skin-horse.com/comic/will-be-provided/ individuals capable of identifying themselves as intelligent nonhuman sapients]]". A human brain wired to a helicopter is just as human as [[http://skin-horse.com/comic/prefer-doctor/ a human in a wheelchair]] -- unless he's capable of ''identifying'' as a non-human, in which case the definition applies. You may think this is silly, but [[http://skin-horse.com/comic/at-the-conclusion/ it doesn't matter what you think; all that matters is]] '''[[http://skin-horse.com/comic/at-the-conclusion/ It's written down somewhere]]'''. (So logic bows to paperwork / Of course. We're the government.)
