Prompting web archives to also archive some links?

Is it possible to get a web archive to crawl and archive a layer of links? All i have found is to follow the links and make new archives and documents which i’d rather not do.

I ask because its not uncommon for me to want to archive a research article and they may link away to references like graphs etc that are common for context, and should those links rot, the original archive isnt as useful.

there are tools that can do this, eg curl and whether. Are you aware that webarchive is deprecated?
