Animated Comics are unquestionably the rarest comic medium. Only three contributers have made an animated comic, two featured in the DYOS series and one as a tech demo. This medium, like its cousin Cut-and-Paste, features other comic mediums being made into animated comics through the use of animation software. As of yet, there are no hand drawn animations. There have been Cut-and-Paste and Machinima animated comics.

Stylesrj gets in on the animation game
Several animated gifs have been made by Stylesrj to describe certain parts of the plot.
His first was a simple fading effect on Commander Laes after a Falcon Punch attack during a dream.
His second is his reaction to Kevin Rudd being ousted from power. He hears the news and goes into a rage, asking Rosalina to hand him a flamethrower to set the world on fire (a reference to Fallout)
Hitler on DYOS
On July 11, 2010 at 1:55 A.M. GMT, history was made with DRAW Your Own Story's first venture into the motion picture medium. Wondering why Thorvald hadn't made a comic in ages, Adolf Hitler had his cronies scour the threads, but their report was less than satisfactory. Thorvald promises it to be "[t]he first of many".
