* ''LastRes0rt'', being a {{Cyberpunk}} comic, accepts plenty of Cynicism... but the MoodDissonance with the otherwise bright settings and characters brings in the Idealism.
** Most of the humans (and part-human Celeste) in ''LastRes0rt'' are more Cynical than [[FurryFandom their furry counterparts]].
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' has eight main characters which allows them to run the gamut of the scale. However, [[DefrostingIceQueen Susan]] is firmly cynical and [[ChivalrousPervert Tedd]] is probably the most idealistic. Which makes their OddFriendship what it is.
* In ''CityOfReality'' the titular city is so firmly embedded into "idealistic" end of the scale, it's actually [[http://cityofreality.com/2009/08/01/01-01-monsters/ kind of creepy]], to the point that you might think of it as a {{deconstruction}} of the concept itself. In fact, it's even noticed by some of the characters, and made into part of the plot. Later, however, they face inhabitants of the [[AlternateUniverse other worlds in the universe]], which tend far towards the opposite end of the scale, showing them just what they're fighting for. And ''against'', as their main opponents for Chapter Five turn out to be some of their own people, turned WellIntentionedExtremist as they attempt to protect Reality's way of life at any cost.
* ''FanFic/ChessPiece'' is somewhere in the middle, veering either way, though characters themselves range from idealistic (Vlad, Kwan, Diligence) to in the middle (Sam, Doug, Skulker) to cynical (Doug again, Danny, Abe).
* In the first campaign of ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'', pretty much everyone (including the Game Master) are cynical and dangerously GenreSavvy. Annie (playing Anakin) changes that and wins points for the effort, but by the time the second campaign started rolling they've all been [[IncrediblyLamePun lured to the "dark side" of cynicism]].
* In a similar manner, The Game Master in ''DMOfTheRings'' is the only one trying to uphold some sort of idealism. This crumbles slowly as he becomes fed up with his extraordinarily-cynical players.
* In ''{{Harkovast}}'', a lot of the tension between the characters come from those that are more cynical (Shogun and Ki) and how their attitudes conflict with those that are more idealistic (Chen-Chen and Sit Muir).
* ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'' is usually quite idealistic, [[http://www.brawlinthefamily.com/?p=692 and Metaknight even points out that this is why [=DeDeDe=] is the]] DesignatedAntagonist and why [[DesignatedHero Kirby isn't]].
* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' appears to be one of the most unabashedly cynical things ever drawn. For example, Black Mage's super nuke attack, the Hadouken, is powered by love. As in: every time he uses it, the divorce rate goes up measurably. However, it's too silly to be considered either cynical or idealistic. The Light Warriors, BM especially, are the universe's {{butt monkey}}s and anyone they come into contact with gets hurt, but there are genuinely good guys in the comic (Fighter, WM, the four White Mages at the end), and it's all PlayedForLaughs.
* ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' plants itself firmly on the idealistic side with [[http://bobadventures.comicgenesis.com/d/20080722.html this]] encounter between Bob and WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Galatea.
* ''Webcomic/{{Jack|DavidHopkins}}'' sits oh so very far on the cynical side, possibly up there with ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. Half the premise is: "If life's not fair, why should the afterlife be?"
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' comes off as a mixture of both sides. On the one hand, the game of SBURB seems to award victory to those who grow up and face their fears and so on, resulting in a fairly typical {{coming of age|Story}} set up. On the other, for the trolls, 'coming of age' consists of succumbing to their innate bloodlust (and by NOT murdering each other they end up losing) , whilst the kids are stuck in a universe doomed from the start.
* ''BasicInstructions'' is reasonably far over onto the cynical side, as it's full of snark and many characters are distinguishable by their flaws. In many ways, it's similar to ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}} in terms of cynicism.
* ''Webcomic/AMiracleOfScience'' is on the far idealistic side. The whole point of the story is that [[ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder mad science]] can be cured without using any violence. Then there is Mars, which shines in idealism with its utopistic society, and even the crime-ridden Venus is relatively tame.
* In ''MandatoryRollerCoaster'' the superhero Depression Man firmly inhabits the 'cynical' side.
* Surprisingly for a webcomic set in a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] world, ''Webcomic/AMomentOfPeace'' is pretty idealistic. Despite the world being full of monsters, the main characters live very cheerfully wandering around, and they even befriend some monsters.
* ''{{Webcomic/Roommates}}'' is an interesting case. The characters are if not cynical but at least snarky and disillusioned. The world on the other hand is a ''WorldHalfFull'' that at least gives idealism a chance and where ThePowerOfFriendship actually works (finding friends being the harder part of the equation).
* ''WebComic/{{Precocious}}'': The characters of Max Zeit and Dionne Crup represent each respective extreme of the scale pretty well.
