* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'': Space monsters are known to exist. Not space aliens, space monsters. They're planet-sized and humanity prays they don't notice the Earth.
* ''Webcomic/BladeBunny''. People keep mistaking Bunny for some assassin named Rabbit or Hare or something. It's Bunny!
* The protagonist of ''Webcomic/{{Catena}}'' may be named Treiss, but as far as her housemate Bear is concerned, her name is Chinchilla. Full stop. Nobody really knows why, given that she's actually a snow leopard...
* In ''WebComic/CommanderKitty'', [[TopHeavyGuy Moose]] will have you know he's entered a ''contest'', not a [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2009/04/27/ow/ pageant]].
* ''Webcomic/DragonMango'' has Cherry who can [[spoiler:teleport]]. However, anyone actually calling it that will provoke a correction from her, where she insists she can "pfffft".
* ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'', Dycle calls it 'courting', expressing the desire to court one as beautiful and smart as Snad. Snad calls it wanting to fuck her.
* ''Webcomic/DubiousCompany'':
** Mary learned that around [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Marl]], elves and elfs are [[FantasticRacism completely]] different races.
** Also Elator's [[GirlishPigtails hair]] is '''[[RatedMForManly manly]]'''.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'':
** Even after Susan [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-05-21 gives up trying]] to distance the [[spoiler: Aberration she and Nanase fought in France]] from the word "vampire" she insists on referring to it as "the monster". Sarah and Grace continue calling it a vampire though.
** In one of the canon EGS NP side comics, Susan [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp.php?id=200 insists]] that a fairy doll she just received is an action figure despite the fact that such objects had been referred to as dolls on every prior occasion.
** Lavender, a US-born member of an extraterrestrial race, strenuously objects to being called an "alien," to the point that Mr. Verres threatens to send Wolf to sensitivity training for doing so.
* ''Webcomic/{{Galaxion}}'' has a reasonable example - the planet 76432-69-GM has landmasses exactly like Earth - the protagonists have to remind themselves they are, in fact, on an alien planet.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'':
** Othar Tryggvassen, '''GentlemanAdventurer!'''. It gets so ingrained that Krosp [[GotMeDoingIt once does the correction reflexively without Othar present]] (before stopping halfway and noticing to his horror what he'd just done).
** In TheRant rather than the comic itself, hyperlinks are always "elegant and finely-crafted".
** And the comic itself, which is a part of the Gaslamp Fantasy genre, most definitely not SteamPunk.
** Gilgamesh is ''very'' insistent that the little Heterodyne generator is not a lamp. [[spoiler:The novelisations state that it is in fact a lamp. It just happens to have other functions as well.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'':
** Rose's Pesterchum text isn't [[PurpleProse purple]]. It's ''velvet''.
** [[TeamMom Kanaya]] doesn't meddle. She ''helps''.
** [[ClarkesThirdLaw Eridan]] insists that he's not using fake magic bullshit and that you call his new weapon a science [[VerbalTic wwand]].
*** Hussie also insists that what he does isn't [[TrollingCreator trolling]], it's "doing jokes".
* In ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' Bigfoots prefer to be called Bigfeet.
* ''Webcomic/{{Inhuman}}''. They're not furries, they're aliens.
* In the fantasy theme of ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'', Mordekai is not a thief. He is a "lovable rogue."
* In ''Webcomic/{{Nedroid}}'' there are no vampires, only [[http://nedroid.com/2010/10/open-door/ Draculas]].
* ''Webcomic/PokemonX'': His name is Jim Gai, but you can just call him Gym Guy. Except when he randomly reverses this. It seems that whatever spelling he prefers is the one that the protagonists did not just use.
* ''Webcomic/RiversideExtras'': The tattoos that girls in the Roses get aren't "ink", they're '''brands'''. This is to distinguish themselves from their rival gang the Ink.
* [[TheFairFolk Jareth]] in ''{{Webcomic/Roommates}}'' insists on calling one of the memetic [[ChangelingTale bad habits]] of his species ''babysitting'' in ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'' he also insists on calling his pouting / sulking ''Glowering Ominously''.
* ''Webcomic/SamAndFuzzy''. If you're in the Ninja Mafia, does that make you a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Ninja Mafioso]]?
* ''Webcomic/SilentHillPromise'' doesn't have pages, it has '''screens'''.
* ''Webcomic/{{Unsounded}}'''s Duane Adelier is not a zombie, thank you very much, he'd much prefer you use the term Galit.(Which is basically 'zombie' in his first language.)
* In ''Webcomic/{{Vattu}}'': It's '''Lord''' Morrian.
