Whackas are creatures known for their valuable Whacka Bumps. However, to obtain one from it, one must hit it with a hammer, hurting it. The bumps aren't infinite, and after some bashes, the Whacka disappears.
Paper Mario Edit
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Edit
In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, a Whacka can be found in Keelhaul Key, with the same function and purpose as the previous game. This game also confirms the endangered status of the Whacka, as the character Wonky remarks on there being only one Whacka left.
Super Paper Mario Edit
In Super Paper Mario, a Whacka can be found in the Downtown of Crag, and once again functions like its previous incarnations. After the Whacka disappears, a Cragnon named Norite is in his place. When spoken to, she will tell Mario that the Whacka was her friend.
Paper Mario: He's a Whacka. When you hit Whackas, they get Bumps that fall off. I heard that they're yummy. You know, I'm not normally into hitting Whackas, but once I heard of their tasty Bumps... I got the urge to whack' em!
Paper Mario unused:This is a whacka. That bump on this head looks like a donut hole. You probably shouldn't have hit him so much. He looks a little peeved.
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door: That's a rare Whacka. I don't think you see many of his kind anymore, nope. If you whack a Whacka, they drop a Whacka Bump. Those are supposed to be delicious. They fetch a high price in gourmet auctions, too. Yup, super-precious delicacies. Still, whacking a defenseless creature to get one... You'd never do that, right, Mario?
Super Paper Mario: That’s Whacka... It’s very rare to see one... It’s delicate and easily harmed... Don’t hit it or stomp on it...
- In Paper Mario, unused data for a Whacka tattle and battle can be found. This data has lead to the conclusion that Whackas may have been planned to be fought in battle presumably after you whack them.
- Whacka has also briefly appeared in Mario Party 6. This makes him one of eight characters to debut in a Paper Mario game and also appear in Mario Party.
