- If this comic is to be believed, getting slapped by a Pizza gives you bruises all over your body and a scratch.
- Girl Genius alternates between playing this straight for laughs (Othar Tryggvassen, Gentleman Adventurer! being thrown out of a zeppelin, and it's stated that he's survived worse) and subverting it for character consistency (this strip is Moloch von Zinzer playing the epic klutz, but the last panel shows Agatha looking shocked and worried, possibly because the last time they had seen one another they were pretending to be lovers).
- More likely, because Othar is the only person in the series explicitly Made of Iron (though the Jagermonsters come close - Dimo's severed arm is played for laughs, too). Moloch was lucky.
- Black Mage of 8-Bit Theater, first and foremost, as he is the universe's Butt-Monkey, Chew Toy and the Fall Guy in one person: He gets beaten up by White Mage and her giant hammer for being obnoxious numerous times, is used as part of a "Mage-Blade", accidentally learns a spell to eject his own entrails, is foolishly frozen in a block of ice and has his arms cut off and re-attached by crochet, has his lungs filled with taffy by Sarda as an example to the other Light Warriors, gets hit with Australia (Sarda at work again), gets hit with a tentacle monster, becomes the favorite target of Dragoon's spear, and lately seems to cling to life just to spite White Mage... the list is endless. Oh, and he's a bleeder.
- Occasionally Red Mage and Thief are subjected to Amusing Injuries, too, especially when Black Mage stabs Red Mage for being an annoying moron or sets him on fire for standing on his face. Red Mage (who is a Cloud Cuckoolander who delusionally believes he is a character in a game of Dungeons & Dragons) was once actually eaten by a tentacle monster and had his skeleton extracted through his mouth, but he "forgot" to die because he lost his pencil in the monster's innards and couldn't note down the damage on his character sheet. But then, this is the guy who thinks that being on fire gives him a tactical advantage...
- Fighter is usually oblivious to damage to the extend that he seems contractually invulnerable and mistakes Black Mage's attempts to stab him in the head for demonstrations of friendship because, as Fighter affectionately points out, Black Mage with his "weak little wizard wrists" can't stab hard enough to pierce Fighter's armor class anyway.
- ...and then there's the occasional instance (or hour) of unbearable pain for the Light Warriors when Sarda (a near-omnipotent immortal Jerkass) decides to screw with them for his own amusement.
- Gordon Frohman of Concerned (a comic based on, and made with, Half-Life 2) has survived just about everything that could possibly kill a player in that game, always played for cartoonish laughs. He was a zombie for a while, but got better then, too. Cruelly subverted at the very end of the comic, when he falls from the roof of the Citadel tower and is Killed Off for Real.
- This is because He had Buddha Mode activated the whole time and accidentally turned it off right at the end.
- Happens now and then in Sluggy Freelance, usually as a result of someone making Bun-Bun mad.
- Any harm involving Richard in Looking for Group. If he's the victim, expect a funny comment from him.
- Nodwick - Many strips begin or end with the titular henchman completely wrapped in healing duct tape (in lieu of actual bandages). It actually quite effective; his employers frequently use him as a projectile or monster chow, and most of the humor comes from lines like "Can you lift my head? I need to spit out my kneecaps."
- Averted in MegaTokyo. The writer specifically says he didn't want characters to be able to just shrug off injuries, regardless of how ridiculous they were, so early on Largo breaks his arm in a classic "funny injury" moment - and actually does spend six weeks in a cast.
- That being said, there is a scene early when Largo manages to top himself. While playing Mosh Mosh Revolution (DDR with punk music), he overcomes the broken leg he received after jumping out a window only to have the leg twist and break again, leading him to catastrophically face-plant the machine. Later on, he's seen getting around on crutches and, while we don't see his face, it is clear a few comics after that he's just fine.
- Then there's Ed. His pain is a Serial Escalation starting from having his face maimed to taking a fifty-foot turtle to the head to suffering an almost-kill from the TPCD's satellite laser. This is mostly brought on himself for his attempts to obtain Ping and, while it does appear that he's out of the game while he heals, it generally isn't for very long. Even though one return required him to be regrown from whatever cells Sony could scrounge after the laser incident.
- A general rule of thumb for Las Lindas is that Miles + pain = instant comedy.
- The end result of the Demonic Duck from El Goonish Shive jumping out of a moving car.
- Sometimes in Cyanide & Happiness, including awkward self-inflicted cases.
- The Cartoon Chronicles Of Conroy Cat does this. Kind of frequently, too.
- Frequent in The Order of the Stick, particularly with Belkar as the target. In particular, Vaarsuvius loves casting Explosive Runes on him.
- In 70-Seas, Nikol casually unsnaps a monk's neck after being informed that 'Think you could have messed that guy up more?' was not a request.
- Early on in Commander Kitty, a Teleporter Accident disassembles CK in transit, forcing Socks to put him back together like a Lego figure.
- Matchu has fallen through numerous floors, had a UFO land on top of him, got struck by lightning twice, got hit by a flaming Christmas tree shot out of a cannon through his window, got an anvil on the head, been launched from his bed into the wall, and caught up in a Noodle Incident involving a bank robbery, an escaped giraffe and a car fire.
- His love interest and Deuteragonist Amber fares no better, being elecrocuted, crushed and mummified in duct tape.
- Gone with the Blastwave is fond of seeing people get hurt for the sake of comedy, often at the expense of Pyro or one of the other Reds. Irresponsible gun usage is just the tip of the iceberg."Friendly fire you goddamn son of a b—"
