Throw The Dog A Bone: Webcomics
  • In this Melonpool strip, Mayberry FINALLY gets to watch the one episode of Star Trek he never saw.
  • "Phoenix Rising" is so far the only story arc in Sluggy Freelance that ends with Oasis in a healthy emotional state. While she does leave behind the friends she made in Podunkton to Walk The Earth, she's at least on good terms with them and seems to have gotten some peace of mind. Beats the hell out of her previous appearances, which all ended with her either Left for Dead or locked up in an insane asylum.
    • However it's recently been revealed that after she left all her friends bar the old martial artist have been kidnapped and locked up by hereti corp, the source of all her problems.
  • In Ansem Retort, Riku spends the whole strip being The Chew Toy to a degree that makes you feel the Emo Teen qualities are justified. Then Yuffie comes along. There are exactly two official couples (Zexion/anything female does not count) and he's now one of them. Enjoy your bone, doggie. She eventually dumps him. For his own Future Badass self.
  • In Homestuck, Tavros is almost certainly the greatest woobie in a whole species of woobies: he was cripped by Killer Game Master Vriska For the Evulz, rendering him in a wheelchair on a planet that includes mandatory tests of physical ability as a requirement to merely survive to reach childhood, and is mocked cruelly by Vriska afterwards by shooting down his attempts at self-confidence and creating for him a house full of stairs. And then Kanaya intervenes, persuading her to do something nice, and she alchemizes a rocket chair for him to realize his dream of flying. D'awww.
  • Newshounds: Ferris the Rat, after years of wanting to sell an idea to Hollywood, finally does.
  • Basic Instructions: Rick beats Scott.
  • Precocious: Jacob, usually The Chew Toy, has had a couple of moments in the sun.
