Tastes Like Diabetes / Webcomics

Go To

  • The Jinxlets of Starslip Crisis. The Jinxlets get nourishment through SNUGGLING.
  • Vinci from Vinci and Arty; consult your physician before attempting to read this webcomic. Occasionally lampshaded as the 24 year old male raccoon gets confused for a 10 year old boy or girl.
  • Chibi Miku-san. Oh mother of god, the whole of you will be disintegrated at everyone's adorableness there.
  • Lampshaded in this The Dragon Doctors. Oh, and then the author demanded someone put it on here. So I did.

  • This xkcd strip starts off appearing as a straight example, before diving into subversion so fast it'll set the air on fire.
  • My Milk Toof even has a ridiculously adorable title!
  • Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures
  • Tiny Kitten Teeth, especially the Tigerbuttah strips. It's enough cute to make your brain reboot.
  • Done (in a weird way) and lampshaded in this Something*Positive.
  • Homestuck
  • Parodied with an NSFW Comix April Fools' Day strip, then subverted the next day.

  • Slightly Damned's romance is cemented firmly in the diabetic range, which can grate against some of the less romantically inclined characters.
  • In El Goonish Shive, Susan began physically choking after Elliot and Sarah started flirting in the same room as her.
    • And then there's this. Justin's response two pages later sums up everything that can be said about that...
  • The Perry Bible Fellowship plays with this very often: lots of strips start too sweet, but end in some horrible bloody mess. Also, in the strip Suicide Train shows a character who has such an aversion to a too sweet world.
  • Narbonic passed into this territory for a while. It was lampshaded by the characters wondering if they were disturbing the readers by being all cutesy and flirting all the time. They then remembered that they were evil, so the readers could suck it.
  • Weregeek had little fun with vampire seduction. "This is why I hate hanging around the Blood Bond."

  • One character in Angel Moxie is so disgustingly cheerful she's creepy. Appropriately, her name is Candi Shugari.
  • The Boy in Pink Earmuffs has just the right combination of Puppy Love between two boys and pink that this happens. Tropes Are Not Bad since it works pretty well.
  • In The Order of the Stick, a flashback to young Durkon with his mother. At least in the opinion of a negative energy being.
