Beyond The Impossible:
Events in Web Comics that are not possible.
Only list examples that fit this description
Glorious Chainsaw Method. This is Lampshaded in the comic by Black Mage. ''make your swords unto chainsaws'. It wasn't possible but he did it anyway.
How do you make an omnipotent wizard go "What."? You Dual Wield , long bows and then you dual wield the dual wield
Black Mage's Evilness. When the representation of all of your sins is yourself, because nothing else was quite up to the task, and yet you manage to be even WORSE than it, then RAPE IT, and EAT IT...
Also, Thief steals his own class change. From the future. At the worst moment possible, to boot.
Fighter uses this trope to prevent the Light Warriors from dying after a long fall. How? He blocked the ground with his sword. Don't ask him how he did it; somehow it will make sense.
Black Belt's No Sense of Direction breaks the laws of time and/or physics on a regular basis. For instance, crossing a tightrope that's only taut because he's holding one end of it.
broke the impossible way back when they encountered a Problem Sleuth Solve the Soup Cans puzzle so utterly impenetrable and difficult that the protagonist was forced to reload from a save-state made
after the puzzle was completed.
"Shit is more real than it has ever been or possibly ever can be."
For that matter, Homestuck continually goes even further.
At one point in the story, Jade promises Echidna to complete a task that she believes is impossible. That is, she must bring all the lands, denizens, consorts, and everything else with her when the kids escape the universe and the Scratch. At the end of act 5, after reaching the god-tiers, Jade shrinks the planets themselves into convenient travel-size, and makes it clear that the "impossible" is now trivial.
Cans can punch people into next week. Literally. He then punched someone
into the next calendar year. Sollux Captor once hacked Doc Scratch's typewriter.
The Autoresponder doesn't show off just by reciting pi to an excessive number of digits, but by claiming to have calculated the final digit of pi (four, apparently). This is obviously impossible (pi is an irrational number that has no end) and he's only saying it to screw with Dirk, as Dirk rightly points out.
During the end of Act 6 Part 3, Lord English kills the doomed versions of the Beta Kids and Post Scratch trolls and, for lack of a better word, breaks the afterlife. Absolutely no one is immune to being killed off by Hussie.
Not even . Hussie himself Bitter Sweet Candy Bowl David wanted a way to climb a cliff without actually climbing. So he shouted "SUPERRRR PANELLLL TELEPORT!" and was suddenly on top of the cliff. He was surprised it worked.
The Order of the Stick:
In strip #794, Elan seduced a succubus. As in demon who is, by her own admission, an evil incarnation of illicit sex.
Talking Is a Free Action in the OOTS world. This is the basis for jokes. However, Vaarsuvius once managed to take up a turn by saying something "particularly verbose".
Talking strategy to Xykon can put the undead sorcerer to sleep.
Xykon: Oh, sorry, I just fell asleep right in the middle of that. Redcloak: You're a lich, you're actually physically incapable of sleeping. Xykon: Which should just emphasize how boring that was.
Larisa in :
Sandra and Woo uses this trope to explain why Chihiro is the unofficial president of the Wibsy ( Girls Next Door Weirdo Boyfrend & Supernatural Stalker club): using Christine words "It's hard to trump dating a river." The others have at least human-shaped (a fae, a ghost and a vampire amongst others. Christine with her murderous deformed psycho is the most normal of them all.) boyfriends/stalkers, so this is impossible by their standards. in her defense the river
was in the form of a human boy that looked her age at the time she fell for him. Talerdo can travel Planeta Absurdo by violating time-space laws and travel long distances with only one step because he has No Sense of Direction.
A scientific impossiblity is achieved in Sequential Art: Gadgeteer Genius Scarlet makes a perpetual motion engine out of a Slinky Slanky
VG Cats shows Aeris aborting Leo from time. That's not what qualifies for this, however. What qualifies for this is that he .
recovered from it Legend Of The Hunter: Gwydian routinely accomplishes the impossible by demonstrating flagrant disregard for In-Universe laws of reality.
Mountain Time: There was even a time when Helen Hunt killed more people than live on Earth, and they all came back to life by the next strip.
L's Empire: It was stressed that the Master Stars can not change the angle they are viewed from and are unaffected by shading or photoshop effects, even remaining the same during art shifts. In his very first appearance, Dark Star manages to fade them into the page, but make them glow and turn them.
Freefall: At one point Sam and Helix go to return an authorized (as in, legally produced) autographed (as in, signed by the creator) copy of the The Star Wars Holiday Special. George Lucas considers the film such an Old Shame that he's taken steps to ensure that it will never be legally produced while he's still alive to sign it.
Sluggy Freelance During the stick-figure filler week in chapter 35, there happens a blackout so massive that it becomes dark during the day.
Riff's defence after his Epic Fail in trying to ride a motorcycle, sending it hurtling backwards through the air: "Okay, in my defense, that was physically impossible."
