[[EasilyForgiven Easy forgiveness]] in webcomics.

* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'':
** Particularly in the early strips, the cast was surprisingly tolerant of Aylee's human-eating tendencies and Bun-Bun's general sociopathic tendencies. They do eventually put their foot down on Aylee eating people and convince her to quit, but Bun-Bun still gets a mostly free pass for all the violent and manipulative things he's done, does, and will do. Of course, that might just be because he'd kill them all if they tried to get tough with him. [[TokenEvilTeammate Better to keep the switchblade-wielding bully on their side]].
** There is a brief part in the Cannibals Anonymous Storyline in which, after Aylee upset Zoe by serving a human for Thanksgiving, Torg fired her, but later accepted her back after she worked on improving herself, in which the seriousness of her activities is mentioned to a degree.
--->'''Aylee:''' I suppose there are some things saying sorry can't fix.\\
'''Riff''': Like murder.\\
''[a moment of silence follows as Aylee reflects on this]''
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'':
** In [[ strip 125]] [[HeroicComedicSociopath Belkar]] is trying to kill [[SpoonyBard Elan]]. In [[ strip 126]] Belkar and Elan are chatting about multiclassing.
** Played with in [[ this]] and [[ this]] strips between Elan and Tarquin.
** General Tarquin [[ mentions]] that no matter how many people [[spoiler:Thog]] kills the [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall audience still thinks he's lovable]]. Averted when Roy shows that he isn't going to forgive [[spoiler:Thog]] so easily.
* ''Webcomic/MagickChicks'' has a mutual case. [[spoiler:Cerise grows so bitter towards Melissa's popularity and mistreatment of her, that she enslaves the entire school with mind control and attempts to murder Melissa and the entire student council. After a big fight, not only does Melissa forgive and apologize to her, Cerise happily accepts it and returns Melissa's hug. Faith is slightly less forgiving and {{lampshade|Hanging}}s it, but Melissa is able to use her new position as president of the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil to order the school to forgive her.]]
* In ''Webcomic/MitadakeSaga'', no-one really holds much of a grudge against Kazu, despite him killing someone. TruthInTelevision for those who play ''VideoGame/MitadakeHigh''; very rarely will anyone call you out for killing someone if you thought they were the killer ([[TheChessmaster or were pretending to]]). Although when this is averted, it is averted ''violently''.
* ''WebComic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'':
** Granted, given the circumstances (he had had [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami's]] head crudely grafted onto his body) it could technically qualify as a MercyKill, but much to Jonesy's surprise [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} Simon Belmont]] easily forgave her for putting a crossbow arrow through his neck, reasoning that it wasn't even the first time someone shot him and Romania has good healthcare anyway.
** When Jared accidentally dented Commander Badass's car, he just shrugged and said that it was easily fixed and finishing project cars take the fun out of them anyway, so might well hand them to a teen to damage.
* Amical from ''{{Webcomic/morphE}}'' is exceptionally charming and relies on this trope a lot. It's is especially apparent with how Tyler went from growling out death threats to Amical after getting shot in the shoulder to being the most vocal supporter of him by the end of chapter 3.
* ''WebComic/MuhPhoenix'': The Scarlet Witch has a much easier time being accepted as redeemed in this parody.
* Subverted in ''Webcomic/LsEmpire''. [[spoiler:Everyone forgives Phala for her actions as the Pixl Queen. Everyone except her daughter, who was the one person she wanted forgiveness from. However, Indx's inability to forgive her mother doesn't stop her from saying she still loves her.]]
* In ''Webcomic/ForestHill'' after [[BullyBrutality Benni almost kills Kaleb]], neither Kaleb nor his mother, Flora, hold any anger towards Benni. Flora agrees to become Benni's foster parent after she finds proof that he was being abused, and Kaleb is willing to defend Benni against his own best friend, because [[NiceGuy that is how nice they are]].
* Subverted in ''Webcomic/{{Sorcery 101}}'' with the vampire ComedicSociopath Seth. Danny shrugs off antics like Seth [[DisproportionateRetribution immolating]] a thief who'd left him ChainedToABed with only token objection, is only slightly annoyed with him for getting his friends' five-year-old daughter drunk and reading her horror novels, and even helps Seth out after he breaks Danny's arm and threatens him. Then he learns that Seth can control his mind, memories, and emotions at will. Once he has a PsychicBlockDefense put in place, his response flips to a retroactive YouBastard and a [[BlownAcrossTheRoom Force bolt]].
* Zigzagged in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': After Justin [[ receives]] an apology from Diane for [[ calling]] him a "defective male", he appears to easily forgive her with him claiming to not even remember the incident but accepting the apology anyway. The subsequent conversation with Nanase, however, makes it clear that he has ForgivenButNotForgotten; he just gave her credit for maturing ... credit that would be revoked if she ever regressed.
* In a story told to Rowan in ''Webcomic/BoyAndDog'', a troll puts a {{curse}} on some villagers and nearly starves most of them. Despite this, when he reforms, they invite them to their fondue party.
