As the title should tell you (WHAT?!), this trope is about yelling (WHAT!?) a ridiculously long, loud "WHAAAAAT!?" ([[OverlyLongGag WHAT!?]]) Usually uttered when the character is confused (WHAT!?), annoyed (WHAT!?) or just plain ol' shocked (WHAT!?). May be used in the form of (WHAT!?): "You WHAT?"

If it gets cut off, it's more likely to be a FlatWhat for some reason. ([[SelfDemonstratingArticle WHAAAAAAAAAAT?!]])

A SubTrope of BigWordShout.

Compare FlatWhat, DefensiveWhat, BigNo, BigWhy.

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', this is how Sora, Donald, and Goofy react to two major revelations, both one after the other: first when [[spoiler:they learn that Ansem, the BigBad of the [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts first game]], was in fact the Heartless of a man posing as an entirely different character named Ansem]]; and again when [[spoiler:they learn that the fake Ansem's Nobody is the current BigBad]].
** They do it again (this time with backing from Riku, Mickey, and even ''Yen Sid'') in ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance KH3D]]'' in response to [[spoiler:Lea nonchalantly ''summoning a Keyblade'' (and only giving a bemused "Oh" as a response) at the end of the game.]] Suffice to say, the collective fandom was pretty much doing the same.
* [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Nanakase Yashiro's]] DeathCryEcho is an [[LargeHam over-the-top]] "NANI?!"
** Preceding the above Bison example, K' belts out a "Nandato!" as his K.O. cry in ''The King of Fighters XI''.
** Kensou also has one in ''The King of Fighters 2002: Unlimited Match'', screaming out "NANI YA?!"
** Sylvie Paula Paula's DeathCryEcho on the final round is a CuteButCacophonic "NANDESUTO?!" (a more formal variant of the above "NANDATO?!")
