[[caption-width-right:286:Nuuhhh....]]

A SliceOfLifeWebcomic that revolves around Ronnie, an awkward, geeky, easily-depressed, webcomic-writing ManChild. With him is his [[PlatonicLifePartners best friend and female roommate Agrias,]] Motivation Dude or M Dude; a [[AnthropomorphicPersonification physical manifestation of his motivation]] who makes it his job to make Ronnie's life horrible and Ronnie's [[spoiler:now former]] girlfriend Mei who likes him for reasons unknown.

!!''Whomp'' provides examples of:

* AltText: Or the "comic secret words," as the author calls it.
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: M Dude represents Ronnie's motivation.
* ApologizesALot: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2012/02/13/sorry-for-your-boss/ Here]]
* AuthorAvatar
* AxeCrazy: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2011/06/13/fool-of-kings/ King Stabs.]] Despite being a MonsterClown, notably manages to avoid being TheCaligula.
* BadassBeard: Ronnie has a beard which he is very proud of.
* BaldOfEvil: M Dude.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2010/12/29/genie-comics/ This]].
* BigEater: Ronnie, obviously, but particularly when it comes to chicken nuggets.
* BizarreAlienBiology: "Runnie's Replace." Among his oddities:
** His face looks like a collection of balls stuck together, except for his beard, which comes off.
** When he has a stomachache, it's quite clear that his abdomen is rectangular.
** He offers Agrias an "animo" tape he was keeping in his shirt by letting it slide out (without moving, mind you), which for some reason is covered in [[{{Squick}} mysterious purple goo.]] That makes her laptop BSOD.
** He floats down slowly when falling, as though suspended by balloons.
* BizarreAlienSenses: M Dude can only see people as entities of pure light, which glow increasingly bright depending on how pathetic they are. Ronnie, of course, is one of the brightest people he's ever seen- literally.
** The AltText says that he can't enter geek conventions [[TakeThat for fear of being blinded.]]
* BlessedWithSuck: Ronnie's "magic fat". Any shirt that Ronnie puts on that is not a Hawaiian shirt turns into a Hawaiian shirt (except, apparently, the one in this very page's image). In fact, ''any'' object that makes contact with Ronnie's torso is turned into a Hawaiian shirt... without changing size. A fly that lands on Ronnie's torso turns into a tiny Hawaiian shirt, for example. [[spoiler:Ronnie gets this from [[SantaClaus his dad]], who has the same problem, but with Santa outfits instead of Hawaiian shirts.]]
* BodyHorror: The [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2013/11/18/good-mcriddance/ McRib]].
* BrainBleach: Ronnie shares a dream he had where he and Agrias were a couple. [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2012/04/18/the-shipping-has-sailed/ Agrias doesn't take it well.]]
** "Runnie's replace" has a new replace for "Agrees." At least, [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2014/05/07/agree-to-dis-agrees/ in Agrias' nightmares.]]
* {{Calvinball}}: More like [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2012/02/29/job-decryption/ Calvinjob]]
* CatchPhrase: "I am Runnie's replace. He is feel unwell."
* ChubbyChaser: It's implied that Mei is only dating Ronnie because she has a fetish for fat men.
* CloningBlues: Ronald [=McDonald=] keeps trying to create clones of Ronnie for some nefarious reason...
** CloneDegeneration: ...but the clones keep disintegrating. Into piles of [=McNuggets=].
** [[spoiler:Ronnie also unconsiously creates "replacements" to serve his purposes, but they're highly unstable. Santa's had to put down most of them. M-Dude and "Runnie's replace" are the survivors.]]
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: Agrias is often forced into this role, as she's pretty much the only person who understands how Ronnie functions.
* CringeComedy: Much of the humor in Whomp is centered around the main character Ronnie and his debilitating social awkwardness, as indicated [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2012/10/15/peck-your-battles/ here]] and [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2012/11/07/the-gift-of-the-fat-guy/ here]].
* CryingIndian: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2012/02/01/one-mans-nugget/ Ronnie's reaction to seeing McNuggets thrown on the ground.]]
* DistinctiveAppearances: Ronnie's cartoon form appears to be based off of a circle.
* FatIdiot
* FearOfThunder: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2011/07/20/spongeron-roundpants/ "Spongeron Roundpants"]]
* FreezeFrameBonus: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2013/04/05/scale-inability/ "Scale Inability"]]
* GassHole
* GiveGeeksAChance
* GrammarNazi: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2011/06/24/text-dirty-to-me/ "Text Dirty To Me"]]
* HumanoidAbomination: "[[http://www.whompcomic.com/2013/03/29/dip-replacement/ Runnie's replace]]", as it calls itself. A tall... ''thing'' with BizarreAlienBiology, a face that appears to be made of balloons and talks in horribly mangled English. Sometimes it shows up when "Runnie is feel unwell" and does nothing except a weird mockery of Ronnie's daily behavior (except that one time [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2014/01/27/hit-the-ground-runnie/ it tried to kill itself]]) and creep the hell out of Agrias. Absolutely no explanation is ever given about what it is.
** [[spoiler:The Halloween 2014 comic provides an answer: he's a "replacement" unconsciously created by Ronnie.]]
* IHaveNoSon: His father [[spoiler:who happens to be SantaClaus.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: M Dude.
** JerkassFacade: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2011/09/19/dullard-blind/ Sometimes...]]
* JustFriends: Invoked and averted- Ronnie and Agrias really are just friends, and any hint of a romantic relationship is instantly shot down by one or both of them.
* KlingonScientistsGetNoRespect: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2011/08/01/the-smartest-klingon/ The Smartest Klingon]]
* TheKrampus: [[spoiler:He serves as Santa Claus's equivalent of M Dude. Santa is slightly better at keeping Krampus under control than Ronnie is with M Dude.]]
* LifeEmbellished
* LikeFatherLikeSon: [[spoiler:Ronnie gets a lot of traits from his dad Santa. His rotund figure (and the "magic fat" that comes with it) and a "motivation creature" (Santa's is the Krampus) are the two big ones.]]
* LimitedWardrobe: Ronnie's Hawaiian shirts, thanks to his "magic fat", as explained above.
* LiteralMetaphor: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2011/01/24/how-to-live-to-eat-by-ronnie/ Which was proven wrong.]]
* LoserProtagonist: Not quite at Al Bundy levels, but close.
* LovableNerd: Ronnie (for varying values of "lovable").
* MadeMyselfSad: Ronnie multiple times
* MagicCarpet: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2011/10/03/tragic-carpet-ride/ "Tragic Carpet Ride"]]
* ManChild
* MesACrowd: [[spoiler:The 2014 Halloween comic reveals that Ronnie unconsciously makes replacements to serve his purposes. Both M-Dude and "Runnie's replace" are such replacements.]]
* MistakenForGay [[http://www.whompcomic.com/comics/2011-02-23-Preconceived-Emotions.jpg "Preconceived Emotions"]]
* MoodSwinger: Ronnie often, as well as [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2011/03/14/i-lovehate-the-nineties/ this girl.]]
* NerdGlasses
* NervousWreck: Ronnie is constantly paranoid about what other people think about him, going to great lengths to save himself from embarrassment (although this often backfires and Ronnie ends up humiliated anyway). He's also easily startled by loud noises and tends to get emotionally overwhelmed at extremely trivial shortcomings. Even [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2013/08/23/blame-it-on-the-pain/ thinking about something sad]] will reduce him to a cripplingly-depressed (and [[NakedPeopleAreFunny naked]]) puddle.
* NoodleImplements: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2012/06/18/coming-this-downfall/ "Not the bucket!"]]
* NotSoDifferent: Agrias and Ronnie. They share the same love for comics and video games. And while Ronnie is far more socially awkward, Agrias can prove herself quite weird, if not disgusting, too. She gets to [[FridgeHorror realize]] this in [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2011/01/17/gone-with-the-rent-part-5/ this strip]].
** Ronnie and [[spoiler:his father, Santa Claus]] too.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Agrias' real name is Li Ming Chiu, but she goes by her nickname almost exclusively.
* {{Otaku}}
* PlatonicLifePartners: Ronnie and his female roommate Agrias.
** On at least one occasion, Ronnie has crossed the line because he confused mundane etiquette and kindness with romantic affection. Agrias wrote him a note to remind him.
* PreviouslyOn: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2012/03/30/things-got-serious/ This]]
* ProudToBeAGeek
* RetGone: [[spoiler:Krampus does this to the entire McDonalds franchise. M Dude convinced him to do it. Fortunately Santa makes him undo it.]]
* SliceOfLife
* SurpriseCreepy: The comic tends to take sudden unsettling turns.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Ronnie's Chicken [=McNuggets=].
** Or "chikky nuggz", as his donate button refers to them.
* [[UglyGuyHotWife Ugly Guy Hot Girlfriend:]] Ronnie and Mei. Why she's attracted to him is anyone's guess.
** [[spoiler: And now she's [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2012/09/10/alone-in-the-park/ dumped him]]. For someone [[UpToEleven even fatter and more pathetic]]. It seems she has a type and she sticks to it.]]
* VorpalPillow: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2011/04/25/fight-for-your-right-to-slumber-party/ "Fight For Your Right To (Slumber) Party"]]
* XanatosGambit: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2014/07/04/murdering-with-kindness/ M Dude employs a small one]].
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]: Mei's hair is violet [[MulticoloredHair with a streak of pink.]]
* YourHeadASplode: [[http://www.whompcomic.com/2012/01/25/cookie-ronster/ "Cookie Ronster"]]
