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:

 "That's a boy's name."

 "That is one dead baby."

 [[http://boxerhockey.fireball20xl.com/?id=171 "This is why everyone hates you, Skip! You're a homophobic, egocentric, back-stabbing, racist asshole!"

"Hey! I am not racist."]]

  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.
  • Un Cancelled: 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.
