 The Whammer is a villain of WordGirl. He once was a sidekick and now a solo Super Villain. He is equivalent to the Shocker from Spider-Man.


Being one out of five that have super-strength, with the others being Wordgirl, Eileen, Nocan, and Miss Power. Showing his power in ‘Sidekicked to the Curb’ (2008), by moving to monster trucks by tying them to his waist, and next lifting two yachts out of the water. In ‘Theme park WHAM-page’ (s2009), he crushed a whack-a-mole style game with his fist and lifted a Ferris wheel. In ‘Wham Up’ (2010), he skipped a stone from the dock and hit a small sailboat, sinking it instantly. He has showed another power as well as strength, the ability to create sonic waves from his fist by ‘whamming’ them together. The best representation of this power is the episode ‘Crime in the Key of V’ (2011), where the Whammer creates a very destructive wave called “The Whammer ‘s Wham-chorder” by tapping his index fingers together. The attack of course missed hitting the target (Wordgirl), but instead hit a satellite with bacon wings. The episode ‘Gift Pony’ (2012), the Whammer tries to take down Wordgirl with two large metal fists that create super waves greater than before.  


The Whammer is one colorful character when it come to clothes. He is usually clothed in a blue leotard with a large grey collar and shoulder pad like top. A wrestling belt is always around his waist and red shorts are under the leotard. He always wears brown cowboy boots, and Celtic warrior "not a Viking" helmet. A purple and orange mask as well as purple and yellow gloves are another part of his attire. Under his helmet is a neon green mohawk. In ‘A World Without Wordgirl’ (2012), he is shown as one of Chuck's cops. He is no longer wearing his mask and outfit. His helmet has been changed to have ketchup and mustard tubes instead of two horns. The Coach once thought he was a professional wrestler instead of a super villain.


The Whammer eats large amount of food, especially when it comes to hotdogs. He likes yellow mustard on his hotdogs ‘Thorn in the Sidekick’ (2008). And soon it changes to hotdogs with chocolate, ‘Theme park Wham-page’ (2009). He never finishes any of the foods that he gets, as seen in ‘Whammer Anniversary’ (2011), when he orders The Ark, a giant sundae made with “two scoops of every flavour of ice cream, covered with a bucket of hot fudge, covered with a bucket of cold fudge, and a barrel of strawberry sauce, flanked by two giant bananas, then is garnished with enough nuts to last a village of squirrels all winter, and finishing touch is a mountain of whipped cream so high that you’ll need a ladder to reach the top.” He got so far as to eat the coldest scoop from the back freezer until he got a brain freeze twice. Soon he makes a pie for the Coach’s class ‘Villain School’ (2008), but the entire pie is made of butter stucks, which, when he pulls the pie out of the oven, finds that the butter is not melted.


The Whammer is often seen as sidekick to many major villains.  He has teamed up few villains from his long run on the show, from Chuck ‘Thorn in the Sidekick’ (2008) and ‘One Last Sandwich’ (TBA).  Joining the Butcher ‘Too Loud Crew’ (2010).  Getting Amazing Rope Guy tangled in his own rope ‘Sidekicked to the Curb’ (2008).  Trying to help Wordgirl find Capt. Huggy-face ‘Wham up’ (2010).  Worked in the same copy shop as Beatrice Bixby only to be let go for blasting the store in an excited Wham, ‘Wham up’ (2010). In the same episode, he tries to work for the Baker, only to be fired for licking the cake he was to make for a child. Which he wrote “Happy Wham Day, Whammer”. Soon tried to be , and the use of the pun, “second fiddle” to a professional violinist, only to play the violin as a guitar.

House and Home

He is shown to live in an old gym ‘Escape Wham’ (2010), that is decorated by old gym equipment. His phone is also shaped like a dumbbell weight.  In this case dumbbell also is a term that insults someone’s intelligence, making it a double entente, since a dumbbell phone also marks his strength, it being a tool for building muscle. In other shows, ‘Villain School’ (2008) and ‘Too Loud Crew’ (2010), it shows that he also lives in an old apartment which is used by the Coach for his seminars. The Whammer has a softer side, when it comes to pillows and plush animals. The first episode that he appears in ‘Thorn in the Sidekick’ (2008). It shows that he loves pillows that are consequently called Whammers. They later appear in ‘Escape Wham’ (2010), when the Whammer sits on his bed to call Chuck the Evil Sandwich Making Guy to check on him in jail. In ‘Too Loud Crew’ (2010), he teams up with the Butcher to steal a meat-filled pillow, which he then punches the meat out of it from excitement. Soon he gets a few plush animals from ‘Theme park Wham-page’ (2009), the first being a stuffed doe, which he cuddles and hugs, along with an octopus with a top hat and a large mouth bass, that soon disappears when he is on the Merry-go-Round.


  • It seems like the word he uses is “Whammer” and speaks in 3rd person, but many episodes, he uses “I” and “Me.”
  • He has a somewhat country accent, which sounds more prominent in “Whammer Anniversary” (2011) when he asks for the ice cream to go.
  • He likes ice cream a lot. In ‘Escape Wham’ (2009) he steals an ice cream sandwich from the museum. And next time we see him, ‘Wham up’ (2010), he uses an ice cream cone analogy to represent his heart, and soon “Whammer Anniversary” (2011) he orders the large Ark sundae.
  • His verbal tic of “Wham” has become worse over the episodes, and he has gotten louder.
  • The first time we see him, he is able to calm down and speak quietly in a villainous way. Only to be changed to be a more comical character of the show.
  • It has also been revealed that The Whammer loves clowns.
  • It was also Revealed That The Whammer was afraid Of bubbles in the Episode Silence of the Whams But wordgirl helped him to Conquer his Fear
