* Theatre/TheLeagueOfSTEAM, a fantastic steampunk comedy troupe. In addition to their live performances, they have a little collection of videos on their Website/YouTube channel -- including steampunk ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}'' parodies.
* In the ''Literature/ChaosTimeline'', Germany invents and deploys [[TankGoodness steam-driven tanks]] in this timeline's UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. [[spoiler:And wins.]]
* Tink and Clara of ''WebVideo/TheGuild'' find a steampunk booth at their game convention. Tink dismisses it as "Euro trash for nerds."
* ''Literature/StatlessAndTactless'' takes place in a steampunk setting apparently advanced enough to support cars and giant robots.
* The Rise of the Steam Soul from ''Wiki/TheWanderersLibrary'' plays it for horror.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQT6Bnqsvg0&list=UUDkqSAxY4vNKC2sdPjSlEaA&index=31 Arms Race: Escalation]]''[[note]]starting at the original ''Arms Race'' 5-minute short[[/note]] features an alternate version of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crimean_War Crimean War]], fought with steam-driven HumongousMecha and automatic firearms-including a man-portable, steam-powered [[GatlingGood minigun]].
* While not strictly steampunk, WebVideo/AgamemnonTiberiusVacuum ''is'' a goggle-wearing mad scientist popular in steampunk circles.
* In October 2013; Wiki/TVTropes briefly changed its logo to a holiday logo featuring old fashioned lettering and a [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pumpkin_03_2_4493.jpg steampunk jack-o-lantern]].

* ''Webcomic/BlackRose'', mixed with DarkFantasy with the main conflict being an corrupt, industrialized steampunk society versus a more rural territory where magic remains a dominant power.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' -- though its creators [[InsistentTerminology would rather you call it]] "Gaslamp Fantasy", as it has as much "luminiferous aether" and "elan vital" as it does steam, and the closest thing it has to "punks" are those gooftastic Jaegermonsters. What it ''does'' have is [[ForScience Mad Science]]. Which rules the world. '''''Badly.''''' From there, the rule is ''anything goes'', as long as some geeky MadScientist might possibly consider it [[RuleOfCool Cool]], [[RuleOfFunny Funny]], or [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Awesome]] enough. Seen to date are [[ClockworkCreature elaborate clockwork robots]], HumongousMecha, ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld, [[FrankensteinsMonster Frankenstein Monsters]], TimeTravel, and hand-held {{Death Ray}}s.
* ''Webcomic/SfeerTheory'' takes place in a [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Victorian-ish]] era culture where scientists study the workings of [[TitleDrop sfeer]] [[MagicAIsMagicA theory]] in imperially funded universities.
