[[TropesAreTools But like all other good things, angst can be overdone or done poorly.]] Wangst, a {{portmanteau}} of "whiny" and "angst," (or "wimpy" or "wah"... or possibly "wanky" in especially irritating cases) is essentially angst gone wrong. The intended [[TheWoobie Woobie]]'s AppealToPity end in an {{epic fail}}ure, and thus becomes a [[EmoTeen pathetically whiny character]] who insists on crying (often loudly and repeatedly) about a DarkAndTroubledPast instead of, you know, trying to move on with their life. People will end up surrendering in their efforts on sympathy and just question the wangsty character on "Why haven't you killed yourself yet?" Especially if said "trauma" doesn't come across nearly as tragic as the character thinks it does, [[MiseryPoker compared with other people trying to endure out there yet are still determined to solve the problem]], making his lamentations seem [[{{Narm}} way out of proportion.]]

[[TropesAreTools But like all other good things, angst can be overdone or clumsily handled.]] Wangst, a {{portmanteau}} of "whiny" and "angst," (or "wimpy" or "wah"... or possibly "wanky" in especially irritating cases) is essentially angst gone wrong. The intended [[TheWoobie Woobie]] attempts an {{epic fail}}ure at an AppealToPity, and thus becomes a [[EmoTeen pathetically whiny character]] who insists on crying (often loudly and repeatedly) about a DarkAndTroubledPast or event instead of, you know, trying to solve the problem. People will end up surrendering in their efforts on sympathy and just question the emokid on "Why haven't you killed yourself yet?" Especially if said "trauma" doesn't come across nearly as tragic as the character thinks it is, [[MiseryPoker compared with other people trying to endure out there yet are still determined to solve the problem]], making his lamentations seem [[{{Narm}} way out of proportion.]]

'''Note:''' Though Wangst is most frequently associated with characters whining over petty "tragedies," the trope is not merely sadness or angst; it is poorly written sadness or angst that comes off as unjustified due to poor writing, lack of an explanation, or exaggeration. It's not necessarily the scale of the tragedy that the character is reacting to that's the problem, but the way it's handled.
