  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Boxer Hockey is a webcomic created by Tyson Hesse, starting in 2006. It updates Biweekly on Wednesdays and Sundays, and follows a team for a fictitious sport called Boxer Hockey. The comic mostly focuses on the team's lives outside the games, but also has the games in separate arcs.

Tropes used in Boxer Hockey include:

Rittz: "Did anyone else feel like this week lasted like... three years?"

  • Throwing the Fight: Billy believes Skip threw the game against the Australians.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Rittz. He's barely functional, really. He falls for tricks that only sometimes work on dogs.
    • The coach manages to destroy a plane and a life-raft both in the same day through smoking despite Skip telling him to knock it off.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: Skip, when he and Rittz were a child, until Rittz made him promise to be good if they were going to be friends. He stops dragging Rittz into things but doesn't really reform, setting up the conflict within the team when Billy finds out.
  • Trigger Phrase: Rittz reacts to play-calling like this.
  • Uncancelled: For a while the creator was contemplating ending the official storyline comic after the Australia story arc wrapped up, but after a short hiatus came back to continue the story.
  • Virginity Makes You Stupid: Sexual naivety is just part of Rittz's general naivety.
  • Webcomic Time: Lampshaded in strip #97: "Did anyone else feel like this week lasted like ... three years?"
  • What You Are in the Dark: Skip is forced to face this in a dream. Billy is intent on making him face it in real life to destroy him for what he's done to the team.
  • Write What You Know: The first story arc has Team MekPen visit Japan. Author Tyson Heese has lived in Japan before and is fluent in Japanese.
