* Seventeen years in, and Pete Abrams still hasn't revealed just what "Webcomic/SluggyFreelance" actually ''means''. That hasn't, however, stopped him from dropping one of the two words without the other here and there like delicious, fan-baiting sprinkles. Recently (sixteen years in), [[http://www.sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/20130903/ three]] [[http://www.sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/131111/ different]] possibilities showed up, but it is still not clear what it ''means''.
** May 16, 2014: [[http://www.sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/20140516 The Title Drop]] finally appears.
-->"I quit! Sluggy's Freelance now!"
* Parodied in [[http://www.qwantz.com/archive/001218.html this]] ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics'' comic.
** [[http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=2009 This one]] advocates ending everything ever with a title drop. It actually works pretty well.
* Cameron Walden has quite the terrible case of ''{{Webcomic/Zoophobia}}''.
* In ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', chapter titles often get dropped as well in a visual gag, as in "Punch Dracula" (guess what the good doctor finds himself forced to do?) and "Revenge of the Hundred Dead Ninja" (appears on a theater marquee at the beginning of the strip)
* Used in [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2000-06-18 one of the first]] ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' strips. The name has not been used since.
** Until it was used as the name of the cartoon ShowWithinAShow about the Toughs.
** Then when the narrator mentions it [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2001-09-02 here]].
* The last two words of ''BetterDays'' were...well, [[http://www.jaynaylor.com/betterdays/archives/2009/05/chapter-25-bett-9.html just that]].
* It was the worst case of ''ChoppingBlock'' [[http://www.choppingblock.org/d/20010410.html he'd ever endured.]]
* ''AwkwardZombie'' has a veeeeeeery subtle one [[http://www.awkwardzombie.com/comic1-030209.php here]].
* ''BooksDontWorkHere'' does this [[http://booksdontworkhere.thecomicseries.com/comics/29 here]]. in the second chapter.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' lampshaded this by featuring a goon in one comic for this exact reason.
* In ''LeastICouldDo'', John does this and gets [[BreakingTheFourthWall bitchslapped]] [[http://leasticoulddo.com/comic/20090820 by the creator.]]
* ''SomethingHappens'' appears in the introductory strip and [[http://www.somethinghappens.net/d/20081119.html the final strip of book one]]. Not that Something couldn't Happen more often.
* Subverted in ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'', making reference to ''Webcomic/{{Roomies}}'' when [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20080910.html the main characters share a house]].
** And inverted in [[http://www.shortpacked.com/2008/comic/book-7/05-pedostache/sharpcheddar/#comments a strip where]] Amber's counterpart describes Shortpacked's [[MirrorUniverse bizarro twin store]] [=McAwesome=]'s as "'''overstocked''' on happiness!"
* The "Trying Human Chip" in the comic TryingHuman
* ''The Webcomic/CodeCrimson'' drops the the title of each issue at least once.
* [[MobTies "I gots me some Mob Ties!"]]
* [[http://www.lastres0rt.com/2009/12/and-scene/ Happens]] on ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt'' a couple of times.
* Referenced in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'':
-->Sometimes you feel like you are trapped in this room. Stuck, if you will, in a sense which possibly borders on the titular.
** Teased again when examining the Cruxtruder early in Act II
-->"Of all the places for Rose to drop the infernal thing. More than ever you feel...what's the word you're looking for?"\\
"Of course. Housetrapped."
*** The term "homestuck" does ultimately appear in the lyrics of the track [[Music/{{Homestuck}} Chain of Prospit]] from the Mobius Trip and Hadron Kaleido album.
** The titles of Homestuck's acts are all dropped with the exceptions of Act 4 and Intermission 2 (which doesn't even have any text, as it consists only of a single flash). Act 6 Act 1's can be found in a walkaround flash[[note]][S] Seer: Descend[[/note]] in Act 5 Act 2 as part of an item description, but is not dropped within the act itself.
** Several of [[Music/{{Homestuck}} Homestuck's albums]] have titles based on in comic quotes, such as [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004975 Heir Transparent]], [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005530 At the Price of Oblivion]], and [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006044 coloUrs and mayhem]].
* ''NoNeedForBushido'' does this at least twice, once very early in the comic and once a hundred or so strips in.
* ''HarkAVagrant'' does this [[http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=132 here.]]
* ''Boobs Ahoy!'' pulls one [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Boobs_Ahoy/index.php?p=709142 here]]. The only surprise is that it took this long.
** [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Boobs_Ahoy/index.php?p=334319 Guess what?]] It happened a lot sooner than you think.
* ''[[VGCats Super Effective]]'': [[{{Pokemon}} CHARMANDER used METAL CLAW!]] [[http://www.vgcats.com/super/?strip_id=33 IT'S SUPER EFFECTIVE!]]
* In ''{{Harkovast}}'' this happens on the very first [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Harkovast/index.php?p=473700 page]] and again [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Harkovast/index.php?p=722223 here.]]
* In ''SecondEmpire'', a ''Series/DoctorWho'' comic centered on the Daleks, a multi-page exchange between two Dalek characters [[http://www.cg-lair.co.uk/daleks/secemp182.htm incorporates practically every episode title]] of Dalek-centric stories from ''Series/DoctorWho''. For a TitleDrop, it's about as subtle as being hit upside the head with a bag of hammers, but ''SecondEmpire'' holds its tongue very much in cheek.
* ''MoonOverJune'' does it [[http://moonoverjune.com/go/173 here]]. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]].
* Parodied, along with so many other things, in ''IWasKidnappedByLesbianPiratesFromOuterSpace''. OnceAnEpisode the main character informs someone, sometimes herself, that she has been kidnapped and by whom.
* ''{{Fans}}'' occasionally dropped their title into the story, notably in [[http://www.faans.com/books1-6/index.php?p=1610 this strip]] toward the end of their first GrandFinale, before the {{Revival}};
-->'''Rikk:''' People might call us crazy, and once in awhile me might almost belive them. But we're used to that. We're ''{{Fans}}''.
* ''FanFic/ACompleteWasteOfTime'' does this so often, and in response to events which are, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a complete waste of time]], that it's become something of a RunningGag.
* ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'': [[http://www.explosm.net/comics/121/ "What's it made out of?"]]
* ''HannaIsNotABoysName'' gets this in the second strip (which runs continually from the first), when [[SupportingProtagonist the narrator]] first meets [[GenderBlenderName Hanna]].
* Done on ''PlusEV'' [[http://plusev.keenspot.com/d/20060908.html here.]]
* At the beginning of ''TheNoob'', Ohforf meets a level 75 character who [[http://thenoobcomic.com/index.php?pos=4 calls him a noob]].
* The first chapter of ''DarthsAndDroids'' is called ''[[ThePhantomMenace The Phantasmal Malevolence]]''. 828 episodes later, in the middle of ''[[ANewHope A New Generation]]'', we get [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0828.html this]]:
-->'''Clone Trooper 2''': Do you think he's dangerous? This... phantasm?
-->'''Clone Trooper 1''': He's malevolent, you mark my words.
* "[[http://asofterworld.com/index.php?id=3 In the caves behind my house I found]] {{a softer world}}"
* ''WebComic/{{Precocious}}'': [[http://www.precociouscomic.com/archive/comic/2011/02/11 Here.]]
* In WebComic/GirlGenius: "I mean, if they ever write this down, they ain't gonna be calling it '*boy* genius.'" (April 7, 2014)
* In one of WebComic/SomethingPositive's [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp03152002.shtml early strips]]:
--> "Davan, this has to stop, okay? You're always so negative and angry, and it really worries me. You're not nearly the bad person you think you are, and things WILL get better. You've got to go do something positive with your life. I say this as a friend who cares about you."
** Bonus points for being the title's meta-origin: in RealLife the author started the comic because his friend Clarine, [[WriteWhoYouKnow who served as inspiration for Aubrey's character]], gave him this same speech, "something positive" included.
