Subjective Tropes for the GameShow ''Series/{{Whammy}}!''
----
* InternetBackdraft: Woe betide the fool who claims the redesigned Whammy to be superior to the original Whammy of ''Press'', [[NarmCharm no matter HOW impressively 3-D it may look compared to the original]].
* [[JustHereForGodzilla Just Here For The Whammies]]: The reason why some people watch.
* MemeticMutation: The show's title spawned a RunningGag of coming up with new "X! The All-New Y" titles, such as ''Bankrupt! The All-New Series/WheelOfFortune''.
* MomentOfAwesome:
** James Larson, who appeared on the "Larson reunion" special and wiped the floor with the same opponents his brother Michael famously beat nearly 20 years earlier.
** The '''one''' contestant who managed to win the car prior to the Tournament of Champions, although by that point the Big Board had several more Top Keys and Bottom Keys.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Most hatred stems from the round board, the presence of Double Whammies (which merely dumped objects onto the contestant in addition to adding a Whammy), and the overemphasis on prizes (over 100 of which were worth less than $300). There was also the fact that two pilots were made, one with Peter Tomarken and the other with Newton, and that the latter was picked over the former.
* WhatAnIdiot:
** One contestant early in the run thought that losing her third Whammy on her very last spin was better than having a score of $2,000. Had she taken the money, she would have won.
** "What type of vehicles are used in the legendary TourDeFrance?" A contestant rings in and says "[=SUVs=]."
