* ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge''. The author admits to wincing at [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/000502c this strip]] with a self-deprecating AuthorAvatar, even though he knows it's the first use, because it's been done so often since.
* ''DMOfTheRings'' deliberately invokes this trope in relation to ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'' and ''DungeonsAndDragons''. Since the latter borrowed liberally from the former, the players (who apparently never experienced Tolkien) are utterly bored by most of the proceedings, and spend much of the comic complaining about the generic plot devices and worldbuilding while demanding that the DM throw in some enemies that aren't orcs.
* ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'' as one of the first major GamingWebcomics and featured tropes like TwoGamersOnACouch and SnarkyNonHumanSidekick. While still well-liked now, most of the innovation of the comic has been imitated by anyone with a Wacom tablet and an internet connection.
