VS Whitty (more specifically VS Whitty Full Week Edition) is a Friday Night Funkin' Game Mod created by NateAnim8, KadeDev, and SockClip. The mod, once starting as just a single original level, evolved into an entire three song in-game Week developed by the trio. This mod in particular became one of the most popular ones for Funkin players, largely due to its design and professional development being so close to the vanilla game that it could fool players into thinking that it was an official Week made by NinjaMuffin and his crew.

This Week stars SockClip's titular original character, Whitmore (Whitty, for short), a Lean and Mean, hoodie-wearing, short-tempered, hot-headed, anthropomorphic-bomb-man-robot-guy who also happens to be an ex-rockstar, just like Daddy Dearest. Apparently he had some bad blood with Ol' Red Eyes and nowadays would just rather be left alone, a comfort soon taken away from him when Boyfriend and Girlfriend catch him in a back alley and decide to antagonize him ...for no particular reason. They're in for a nasty surprise, however, as Whitty's got a bit of a short fuse, and if they really wanna push his buttons... well, he'll just have to show them how much of a warhead he can be...

The mod had a full week completed, and additional content was being developed. Unfortunately, due to a controversy and harassment of the parties involved, SockClip has indefinitely ceased development and it seems likely that the game will not see additional updates. See the Trivia page for more details.

Well, with one exception. A separate mod intended for the expansion, and the only survivor of the pack, is The Date Week, a crossover with VS Carol that also cements the two as an Official Couple as well as a Grand Finale for Whitty, as his original mod will no longer be available for download from the source.

"Well, how bout you go list some tropes in a ditch instead?":

  • Adaptational Jerkass: Surprisingly, Boyfriend seems to be the one starting the conflict this time, with the opening cutscene showing him actively picking a fight with his opponent. Whitty just wants to be left alone and only sings just to make Boyfriend go away. It's unknown if Girlfriend approves of Boyfriend's actions, but considering how she does nothing to stop the fight from escalating, she's most certainly an accomplice to it. Although, considering Boyfriend is Intelligible Unintelligible, it's possible that he wasn't egging Whitty on and was instead encouraging him to battle or rap in a friendly manner and although it's a bit rude he had good intentions.
  • Ambiguous Situation: With how little dialogue and context we are given in the very brief cutscenes, it's a bit difficult to piece together the story and who provoked who. Although, Whitty upon realizing who BF and GF are says "Oh, you two.", implying that they have already met before or that Whitty recognizes them from somewhere.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: Whitty was originally created to be a doomsday device, with this ability leaking out during the cutscene before "Ballistic" where he breaks reality behind him. It also features in the failure animation in the Date Night songs, where failing causes Whitty to wipe out a city block by exploding.
  • Artificial Human: Whitty is a lab-grown genetic mashup of 20% Human, 80% Other.
  • Blatant Lies: During the credits that show off the several cameos from other mods, they say that Tricky the Clown is from Friday Night Funkin' invoked.
  • Boomerang Bigot: Subverted with Updike. See Hunter of His Own Kind below.
  • The Cameo: There's a whole heaping lot of them in the Date Week mod, most of them appearing either in the background or foreground. And these include but are definitely not limited to:
  • Cartoon Bomb: Whitty's head, of the sphere-with-a-fuse variety. His icon at the bottom of the screen makes it more obvious.
  • Continuity Cavalcade: The Date Week is this and then some. Almost every major mod is present in some way, shape or form, including fellow ex-mod Sky in the credits, as well as all non-Senpai/Spirit characters from the base game. In the cases of mods not done by either the Whitty team or bbpanzu, this doubles as a Shout-Out.
  • Crush Blush: Carol gets these from time to time in "Date Night," usually during harmonies with Whitty. Survive long enough into the song, and Whitty will get a pair himself as he gets more comfortable during the date.
  • Demoted to Extra: Boyfriend, usually the protagonist of most mods, settles for a few cameos in the credits in the Date Week.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Girlfriend once again, being blissfully carefree no matter what happens, in "Remorse", she is captured and cuffed with her hands behind her kneeling in the facility and yet she still bobs her head around smiling during the song.
  • Game Mod: It's a fan-made non-canon mod of the game but it's so amazingly polished that many thought this was an official week and character.
  • Heroic RRoD: Whitty explodes from the stress of screwing up his date when you fail a song in the "Date Night" week.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: The most notable thing about Whitty and Carol during the "Date Night" week is their height difference. Whitty is a very tall bomb-man while Carol is a short human girl.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: In a sense, Updike is this. Updike is the head of a taskforce that specialises in hunting "monsters" (any creature that isn't human), which is why he's hunting Whitty, and also why Girlfriend is handcuffed when Boyfriend faces off with him. Subverted, because Updike himself is fully human, despite looking like an anthropomorphic cloud-man.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Considering that both Boyfriend and Girlfriend are unintentionally getting themselves into trouble, it's possible Boyfriend didn't realize he was unwelcome and simply tried to ask someone famous he recognized to battle since he was starstruck and likely recognized Whitty from his career.
  • Knight Templar: Updike. He insists that hunting Whitty and handcuffing Girlfriend is for the greater good, even though neither of them mean harm to anyone.
  • Lean and Mean: Whitty to a T. He's about thrice Boyfriend's height and is most definitely someone that you don't want to piss off. Possibly Subverted as Whitty's wiry build is for him to fit better into the FNF Artstyle, whereas SockClip's Instagram reveals that Whitty actually has a Heroic Build. Also subverted during the Date Week, where he's considerably kinder.
  • Lighter and Softer: The Date Week as a whole is this to Whitty's original week, as unless you lose, this time there's no threat of him exploding like back in "Ballistic". He's also much happier with Carol than with Boyfriend. The closest thing to danger is during "Heartbass", when Updike is about to open fire at Carol and Whitty... but he gets blocked by the crowd before he can take the shot.
  • Limp and Livid: Whitty adopts this pose after he goes ballistic. His poses in this state make him look like he's being violently jerked around like a puppet by its strings, and by this point he practically screams his verses. For good measure, his fuse also lights up.
  • Meaningful Name: The song titled "Ballistic" is named after Whitty, well going ballistic and relentlessly slinging notes at you.
  • Musical Nod: The Date Week has a few to "Overhead", "Lo-Fight" and "Carol Roll" in "Whitroll", a brief mashup/nod of the latter two about a third of the way into "Perfume," and to "Ballistic" in "Heartbass".
  • Multiple Endings: In the Date Week, determined by your choice of difficulty at the start. Completing the week on Easy or Normal simply has the two happy about the date, but Whitty has to leave... forever. Completing the week on Hard, however, gives a full credits sequence, set to a backdrop of Carol and Whitty interacting with several mod and base game characters.
  • Non-Human Head: Whitty explicitly has a Cartoon Bomb for a head, complete with fuse. Unlike some other characters, it's not merely symbolic (though it is, representing his temper)—Whitty is literally a walking bomb, according to his character sheet.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: When Whitty hits the Rage Breaking Point, Girlfriend ends up shaking with a look of fear on her face for the rest of the section. At this point, she realized how much danger they're both in, compared to other times when Boyfriend faced off against an otherwise similarly dangerous foe.
  • Production Throwback: The sections of "Heartbass" in the Date Week that borrow melody from "Ballistic" use charting that harkens back to the original version of the base Whitty week, which was heavy with jacks (sequences where one would have to "jackhammer" on the same button) as opposed to the more stair-formation focused charting of the revised "Ballistic."
  • Promoted to Playable: Whitmore himself gets this treatment as part of his sendoff in the Date Week.
  • Playing with Fire: Downplayed; During the opening cutscene, Whitty disposes of the Daddy Dearest poster he rips apart by burning both halfs into nothing immediately after dropping them, but he never actually lights anything else on fire after that.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Whitty reaches this right before the third song, shaking violently before crushing his mic like a soda can, tossing it to the ground and unleashing one hell of a Skyward Metal Scream.
  • Reality Warper: For the third song, Ballistic, Whitty gets so mad that his anger splits reality in half, distorting his side with pulsating shapes most likely seen through the eyes of a madman.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Zig-Zagged - In game, Whitty is very hotheaded and short-tempered who sings with a powerful voice, fitting for a humanoid bomb; while BF is calm and collected and sings softly. In lore, Whitty is fairly timid and easily stressed from constantly being hunted by Updike and The Greater Good, while BF is a cocksure moron who performs to impress Girlfriend oblivious to any and all peril they're in. This is best seen in "Date Night" songs, where contrasting with Boyfriend's bravado in wooing Girlfriend, Whitty spends the whole date hunched over nervously until dancing with Carol at the end of "Heartbass."
  • Retired Badass: Whitty used to be an ex-rockstar, just like Daddy Dearest. The latter may have forced the former's retirement, however, as Whitty seems to hold a grudge with DD.
  • Scary Black Man: He is aggressive, standoffish, and has an intimidating voice and although his skin is pitch-black due to him having a bomb for a head, the creator of Whitty has drawn him as a human and when humanized he is depicted as a black man.
  • Shipper on Deck: Boyfriend, Girlfriend, Pico and Sunday are all working together to help ensure Whitty and Carol's date goes just right. In Sunday and Pico's case, this includes as bodyguards. However, unless you go through the mod's asset folders or see the true credits, you won't find this out.
  • Skyward Scream: Done by Whitty to signal that he is 110% done with The Boyfriend.
  • Slasher Smile: Ballistic Whitty gets a teeth-grinding one, with it clashing with his rage making it all the more terrifying, although it's more of a furious grimace rather than a sadistic grin.
  • Speaking Simlish: As per tradition, BF speaks in beeps and bops and we are introduced to Whitty who sings with a harsh electric guitar voice, which is actually the composer's voice heavily filtered.
  • Turns Red: Being a literal bomb with a short fuse, as the week progresses his songs become much faster-paced and aggressively filled with note strings and his voice becomes louder and angrier. This reaches a breaking point in "Ballistic" where he literally breaks reality and loses his composure where he limps forward and screams long strings of difficult notes which is notoriously one of the most difficult songs in the canon/fanon line-up of music. Fittingly, at this point his icon in the meter changes from a black one to a red one.
  • When He Smiles: If you do good during the songs in "Date Night," Whitty will eventually start smiling bashfully. Up to Eleven during the final stretch of "Heartbass" where, together with Carol, he's singing and dancing his heart out with a big smile on his face.
  • Wingding Eyes: Ballistic Whitty's eyes rapidly flashes through four shapes similar to the Playstation symbols.
  • Your Head Asplode: Whitty's head doesn't just look like a bomb - it IS a bomb, and can detonate if he gets too stressed (though he can recover, as it contains none of his vital organs). Failing any song in Date Nite ends with this as the result, with a mile-wide blast radius.

Alternative Title(s): Friday Night Funkin VS Whitty
