Whack Your... is a series of online Flash games that began with Whack Your Boss and has since grown to include a series of installments that usually share nothing except the core game mechanics: despite the series' name, the games are more about finding ways to kill or destroy your targets in extremely sadistic ways that are perhaps only slightly above Torture Porn. The games are billed as being made to bestow upon players a Catharsis Factor to release any pent-up anger and rage.

Some of these games are made by different creators (you can tell them apart by the art style). They are:

    Series Tropes 
  • All Just a Dream:
    • Doodie's Boss and Computer. With Boss, as mentioned below, it's all in the player's head. As for Computer, every time you finish destroying your computer, the scene reset shows that you're just thinking about it.
    • All of Box10's whack games also reveal that you're just dreaming in one way or another.
  • Asshole Victim: Aside from the art style and brutality level, this is what sets WhackIt's games apart from the others. Aside from the neighbor, every single one of the victims (burglars who don't hesitate to kill Patrick, creeps who get way too touchy-feely with Lisa, and if the next game's title is any indication, a freaking serial murderer) totally deserve their bloody fate.
  • Black Comedy: If you weren't playing to actually purge your angry thoughts, you were playing to get a laugh out of all of the bloody, gory madness.
  • Bloody Hilarious: You betcha.
  • Cleanup Crew: After each execution one of these guys resets the level so you can use a different way to kill your boss. For Boss, it's the Cleaner. For Neighbor, it is represented by windshield wipers.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Some of the more graphic and drawn-out kills can feel like they're bordering on this.
  • Deliberately Monochrome: Except for blood, intestines, and guts.
    • In Boss and Computer, electric surges are yellow. Also in Boss, the boss' face turns blue in one of the ways to whack him.
    • In Thief, electric surges are blue and fire is yellow.
    • In Teacher, the pesticide in one of the ways is colored green when used.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The entire point, really. Neighbor stands out though, since all the neighbor was doing was complaining about Patrick's dog pooping on his lawn.
  • Gory Discretion Shot:
    • In Boss:
      • Selecting the chair has you forcing your boss into your chair, duct-taping his mouth, and using your belt to tie him up. You then push him down the hallway and then let him fly through the window, but we only hear what's happening to him.
      • Selecting the wall has you beating up your boss behind said wall, with no indications as to what's happening besides sound effects, your coworker's horrified reactions, and stuff flying around. He does eventually crash through the wall, very much dead.
      • Selecting the computer and the fists will cause the player to beat the boss to death with said items just offscreen with only his feet visible.
    • In Burglars, selecting the basement door in the kitchen has Patrick kicking the burglar downstairs and beating him up offscreen.
    • In Creeps, selecting the toilet door has Lisa dragging one of the creeps into the toilet and beats him up and drowns him. At the end, blood and water flows out from the toilet.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be:
    • In Ex, this is a secret kill activated by clicking the line by the boyfriend's feet.
    • In Boss With Super Powers, this is what happens if you choose the lightsaber.
    • In Neighbor, selecting the iron hook and the car results in Patrick tying up the neighbor's limbs and then pulls them with the car, ripping him in half.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Starting with the umbrella, the pen, and the ruler in Boss, basically every game has at least one kill that involves impalement.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: A staple of the games.
  • Sadist: Most of the protagonists (with a few exceptions) seem to enjoy making their victims suffer.
    • Patrick, the protagonist from the Neighbor and Burglars games, enjoys putting his victims in torturous situations. With Neighbor, he can chain his neighbor to a tree where he slowly starves to death. Burglars has a similar situation where he locks the kitchen burglar in the basement for a month and then proceeds to beat the poor guy up.
  • Slashed Throat: With so many ways to end someone's life, this is bound to happen.
    • In Doodie's Boss this is possible with the scissors, resulting in High-Pressure Blood, coating every inch of the wall behind you (except the spot that you're standing in front of).
    • In Teacher, selecting the scissors results in this, though its portrayal is downplayed.
    • In Thief, after smashing the wine bottle over the thief's head, you then stab him in the throat with the broken piece.
    • In Neighbor, selecting the garden shears results in this.
    • Happens twice in Creeps on separate occasions, thanks to Lisa's hidden blade in her heels and a broken martini glass.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance:
    • As mentioned below, one of the kills in Doodie's Boss involve stabbing your boss' eyes with a broken vase to the tune of a happy music.
    • All the whack games by Box10 (Teacher, Thief, Boss With Super Power) constantly have Scott Joplin's The Entertainer playing in the background.
    • In Creeps, some smooth jazzy music plays in the background as you kill some creeps in several different ways.
  • Splash of Color: Besides blood and guts, everything is in black and white.
    • Ex has a pile of shoes being lit on fire; both the shoes and the fire are colored.
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: This series runs off of it.

    Whack Your Boss 
  • Alas, Poor Villain: For the select few with some Video Game Caring Potential for the boss.
  • All Just a Dream: The game's ending, after you have found all of the ways to kill your boss.
    • In an updated version, the game's ending shows that the events were merely conceived in the blissful, meditative state that the protagonist returns to after each kill. Whether or not he was sleeping during this is left for the player to decide.
  • Angrish: The protagonist when trying to pull off the drawer door.
  • Artistic License: People like Jacksepticeye were prone to complain about how unrealistic the ruler death was.
  • Badass Bystander: Clicking the clock will have one of your fellow employees rip it off the wall and nail your boss right in the head with it from across the room. After finishing him off you then give the guy a thumbs up.
  • Badass Longcoat: The "cleaner", who comes to, well, clean up after each kill.
  • Big Bad: The boss.
  • Blood from the Mouth: After you drown your boss with the water cooler, he'll have a steady flow of blood coming from his mouth.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Selecting the ruler gives you the quickest and arguably cleanest way to kill your boss: you take the ruler, send it into the boss's forehead with a flick of the wrist, and go right back to whatever you were doing.
    • If you select the clock, one of your fellow coworkers will actually provide an assist by whipping the clock at the boss's temple, stunning him enough for you to come in and finish him off.
  • Broken Record: When you sit down and listen to music after killing your boss, all you'll hear is a female voice saying "No when, no want, no worry" over and over with the peaceful ambience of a beach scenery in the background with a seagull passing by.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The whole game, really.
  • Dissonant Serenity: You will have an oddly calm and relaxed look on your face as you're slamming a filing cabinet drawer on your boss' head to the point of decapitation.
  • The Everyman: The protagonist, which makes him all the more relatable to players.
  • Eye Scream: The broken bottle. It starts with you poking the boss in the eyes with it, then you put him in a headlock and viciously ram it into his eyes repeatedly.
  • Golf Clubbing: One of the deaths involves beating your boss to a bloody pulp with a putter.
  • Grievous Bottley Harm: The broken bottle death.
  • Karmic Death: Guess who.
  • The Many Deaths of Your Boss: 24, to be exact.
  • No Name Given: Applied to both you and your boss.
  • Nonindicative Name: While there is some whacking involved, the game's more about finding ways to outright kill your boss.
  • Not Quite Dead: After the protagonist hits the boss with the lamp a few times, he sits down and starts pulling out his music player, but sees the boss twitch. He then crawls over, takes off one of the boss's shoes and socks, puts the lamp over it, and goes to plug it in, electrocuting him.
  • One-Hit Kill: The ruler, the umbrella, the coat hook, and the scissors.
  • Overdrawn at the Blood Bank: The scissors death. Once you slit the boss's throat, he spews out so much blood that it completely covers the wall (except the spot you're standing in front of).
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: The boss will give you one when he walks in. It's your choice as to whether you actually want to listen. He also does this at the start of the filing cabinet selection.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance:
    • The broken bottle death, one of the most gruesome deaths in the game, is shown while happy, orchestral music plays in the background.
    • The game's ending features happy music playing over two scenes (depends on the version): either the protagonist spinning around happily holding the boss's head, or the protagonist in his meditative state recapping all of the different deaths in his head.
  • Suddenly Voiced: The only time we hear the protagonist speak is when he's letting out angrish when trying to pull off the drawer door.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: The keyboard, which has to be one of the most disturbing deaths in the game. Not only do you repeatedly whack your boss with the keyboard, but once a piece of it breaks off (leaving a sharp edge), you force it into your boss's mouth and repeatedly kick down on the boss's skull with the keyboard inside.
    • The cubicle wall death. You subject the boss to a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown, curb-stomping him while he's begging not to be hit by you, with a few employees running away for their safety while the cubicle gets trashed up. You then finally kill him by bashing his skull against the cubicle wall several times, before smashing him through it really hard.
  • Shout-Out: Using the scissors will result in an eruption of High-Pressure Blood from your boss' throat. Given how much more bloody it is in comparison to the rest of the game, it could be a reference to Sanjuro, with the infamous pump malfunction resulting in a lot more blood than intended. If nothing else, it uses the exact same sound effect at the moment of the attack.
    • Beating the boss with the suitcase and the stomping on it afterwards uses the sound effects from a beating scene in Goodfellas. The same sound effect also appears in Whack Your Ex and Whack Your Computer.

    Whack Your Ex 
  • All Women Love Shoes: If you select the stiletto on the girlfriend's side, the boyfriend will bring a closet full of her shoes, dump them out, pour petrol fluid on them, and light them up.
  • Boom, Headshot!: The boyfriend at the end of the car death.
  • Eye Scream: When you select the girl silhouette on the girlfriend's side, a girl will appear and start making out with the girlfriend. A door then falls down, obscuring the girls from the boyfriend's view. He'll try looking through the keyhole, only for the girlfriend to stab him in the eye.
  • Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: Selecting the silhouetted girl figure on the girlfriend's side brings up another girl that the girlfriend makes out with, much to the boyfriend's satisfaction.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: The hidden kill. To obtain it, click the line beneath the boyfriend's feet.
  • Mood Whiplash: This game's got quite some.
    • The brick. The boyfriend builds a small brick fort around himself, with a small opening where the girlfriend looks in...only to get a rocket launcher to the face, leaving only her feet with bone visible.
    • The blue gift. The girlfriend opens the gift and puts on the boxing gloves inside before using the boyfriend's head as a punching bag. After a quick break, she starts beating him more viciously while simultaneously shitting on him.
    • The airplane. The boyfriend shows the girlfriend an airplane drawing a heart on the sky. Cue Record Needle Scratch as the airplane quickly crosses out the heart. The boyfriend then pulls out a chainsaw out of nowhere and starts grinding the girlfriend's face.
    • The sneakers. The boyfriend and girlfriend each exchange romantic gestures. When the boyfriend goes for a hug, turns out he's not going for the girlfriend, but for another girl. He then tramples and stomps the girlfriend's head, all while being watched by the other girl. It finishes with the boyfriend and the other girl running to the distance.
    • The chocolate box. The boyfriend presents a chocolate box to the girlfriend. When she opens, a spring-loaded pie smacks her in the face. Funny, until there's a second spring-loaded trap that chops the girlfriend's head off.
  • Ridiculously Fast Construction: Selecting the brick on the boyfriend's side has him building a small brick fort at an insanely fast pace.
  • Wham Line: In the car death, after an old man drives up in a nice car, whisks away the girl, and drives offscreen only to shoot the boyfriend in the head. "Dad?"

    Whack Your Computer 
  • Lighter and Softer: This is the only game in the series to have an inanimate object as the whack target, so don't expect any blood, gore or gruesome murder. In addition, all of the violence here is more cartoony and over the top than Whack Your Boss. (In the first game you could cause High-Pressure Blood with just a pair of scissors, yet in this game calling in an airstrike that destroys half of the building merely results in the player getting covered in some ash.

    Whack Your Boss 2: Fantasy Edition 
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: One of the kills has your character rip his boss in half vertically without touching him
  • Offhand Backhand: One of the kills feature the employee doing this to the boss' skeleton.
  • The Devil makes an appearance in one of the kills and in the ending.

    Don't Whack Your Teacher 
  • Chairman of the Brawl: One of the kills has the kid smacking the chair he sits on against the teacher.
  • Enfant Terrible: Considering what he's capable of doing to the teacher (and the thief in Whack the Thief), the kid most definitely qualifies.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: The teacher seems to be mean to his student, but when the kid pulls a Wounded Gazelle Gambit, the first thing he does is to see if he's alright.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: One of the kills has the kid pretending to hurt his leg. Then when the teacher comes over to check, he grabs the thermos on the table nearby...

    Whack the Thief 

    Don't Whack Your Boss With Super Power 

    Whack the Trump 
  • Lighter and Softer: There is no gore in the game and the "kills" tend to be cartoony and non-lethal, akin to Computer.
  • Take That!: The title should be a clue.

    Whack Your Neighbor 
  • Bloodier and Gorier: Oh yeah. In a series that is already based around violence, it manages to have killing methods so disturbing that many people who have played it on YouTube have commented on its excessive gore compared to the other games, which showcased that the Box10 games would most definitely be different from the Doodie.com games.
  • Flipping the Bird: Done by God of all people to the neighbor before he zaps him.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Patrick's dog Whiskey, who assists in a number of the kills in this game and Whack the Burglars.
  • Shout-Out: Selecting the brochettes will have you impale the neighbor's thighs, in which he will scream like Ace Ventura in Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls..

    Whack the Burglars 
  • Cherry Tapping: Sure, Patrick can dispatch the first burglar in a variety of graphic ways... or he can make a spider crawl out from his chandelier to send the burglar running off into the night screaming like a little girl.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: One of the kills has Patrick turn his TV to a channel with women twerking, distracting the burglar before killing him.
  • Harmless Freezing: When Patrick freezes the second burglar and then decapitates him his head is shown to still be alive in the separate ice chunk.
  • Press X to Not Die: Three-item combos (restricted to the first burglar) require the player to find the third item within a short time, otherwise the burglar produces a gun and shoots Patrick.

    Whack the Creeps 
  • Action Girl: Lisa, the main protagonist.
  • Bar Brawl: Not really a "brawl" so much as a series of brutal executions, but the events of the game take place inside a bar in Sweden.
  • Birds of a Feather: Lisa certainly shares Patrick's taste for violent Disproportionate Retribution.
  • Bystander Syndrome: The bartender doesn't seem to mind Lisa beating the crap out of two guys in front of him. More often than not, he'll even offer her a drink.
  • Chairman of the Brawl: Several kills feature Lisa using a bar stool to smack the creeps with.
  • Eye Scream:
    • If you select the pencil, Lisa will impale it into one of the creeps' eyes a la Joker from The Dark Knight.
    • The title screen and loading screen icon is an eyeball in a martini glass.
  • Groin Attack: One of the creeps suffers several of these over the course of the game.
  • Off with His Head!:
    • Selecting the hat will reveal that it is Oddjob's hat. You can guess what happens when Lisa throws it at the creeps.
    • The very last kill is Patrick kicking one of the creeps' head off.
  • Shout-Out: This is a whack game, so expect some.

    Whack the Evil Dead Thing 

    Whack the Serial Killer 
  • Action Girl: Lisa returns as the main protagonist, and she is still lethally creative when it comes to killing her enemies.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Due to Lisa's shirt possibly being torn at the bottom.
  • Bear Trap: Among the many nasty implements in the killer's arsenal which Lisa turns on him.
  • Chainsaw Good: The killer tries to use the chainsaw on Lisa when she selects it as her weapon, but when Whiskey makes him drop it, he falls on it and becomes Half the Man He Used to Be.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Some of Lisa's kills, particularly the ones that employ the torture rack or have the killer tied to Lisa's chair, get ugly as hell, the most disturbing of them being pulling out bits of the killer while he's on the rack, roasting them in the furnace and feeding them to the dog.
  • Groin Attack: The killer gets his genitals gnawed on by Whiskey and chopped off by Patrick in the final tag team kill.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Many of the implements that are in the chamber Lisa is trapped in were most likely used on the killer's previous victims (with the possible exception of the Lament Configuration and the evil toys), so Lisa gets to indulge in a bit of karmic payback.
  • Kill It with Fire: Selecting the propane tank has Lisa taking a propane torch to the killer's head. She can also tar and feather the killer and set him on fire.
  • Mugging the Monster: The killer thought Lisa was just another victim. Lisa proceeds to prove him wrong big-time.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Whiskey again, who not only helps Lisa escape her bonds in the beginning, but also assists in several of the kills.
  • Off with His Head!: Several of Lisa's kills (as well as the final tag-team kill with Patrick) have the killer losing his head as a finisher. There's even a guillotine as one of the weapons Lisa can use on him.
  • Serial Killer: Your whack-ee for this game, and much like the burglars, he is capable of killing you.
  • Shock and Awe: The electric chair kill.
  • Shout-Out: It wouldn't be a Whack game without some of these:
    • The infamous Lament Configuration from Hellraiser makes its appearance, with the killer getting the full Pinhead treatment when the puzzle box is solved.
    • The toybox contains not only the killer doll Chucky from Child's Play, but the four killer puppets from the Puppet Master series.
    • Freddy Krueger's razor-glove is among the many weapons Lisa can use to kill the serial killer.
    • The killer's aesthetic and his weapon of choice bring to mind Jason from the early Friday the 13th movies, though the killer is a lot less durable than Jason was.
    • Using the hacksaw has Lisa putting the killer into a situation right out of Saw. There's even a cameo of Jigsaw on a tricycle.
    • The final tag-team kill brings to mind several of Tarantino's movies — the gimp suit and the katana are straight from Pulp Fiction, while Lisa's vicious axe-kick on the killer brings to mind the scene from Death Proof where the second set of girls kicks the killer's ass.
  • Tap on the Head: Some of the more involved kills have Lisa having to take a board or a sledgehammer to the killer's head prior to placing him on the implement she wants to use on him.
  • Torture Cellar: After subduing Patrick, the killer takes Lisa into one of these, with plenty of murder weapons and torture implements he intends to use on her. Which makes things all the more satisfying when Lisa turns these implements on him.

    Whack the Cheater 
  • If I Can't Have You...: There are a few methods that involve the protagonist attacking or killing her unfaithful husband along with his mistress.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Most of the protagonist's attacks involve killing the other woman.
  • Woman Scorned: You play as a woman who wants to get back at her cheating husband.
  • Your Cheating Heart: The plot centers around the protagonist finding out that her husband is having an affair with another woman.
