** The characters of BobAndGeorge know they're in a WebComic, but it only sometimes directly impacts the plot, and the characters' actual existence is never in question.

* NoticingTheFourthWall: The characters become aware they are fictional in the most terrifying way possible; the knowledge that they're only real in someone's imagination and will cease to exist when the story ends is used for existential horror.
