The West (or as it said W-essst)is a deadly and superstitious locale just to the west (it's namesake) of Stormalong Harbor. It is inhabited by burning ghost ships, monsters of all kinds, the infamous Westman, and the Edge of the World. It was featured in the episode How the West was Fun. In Stormalong Harbor, it is so despised by the denizens that all compasses on the island lack a W so that no one can endanger themselves by traveling there. Flapjack and K'nuckles sailed there because Flapjack believed that Candied Island lurked in its boundaries. The West can not actually be pinned down as one location, because if you sail West from Stormalong, you'll enter The West soon enough. While in the West, the mere mention of its namesake (west) causes monsters to appear. If one says West four times in the area, a giant Sloane Viperfish will appear and eat the three previous creatures.
Notable residents include:
- The Westman.
- A playful, chubby serpent with a head shaped like a shield. He was later shown playing in a bathtub.
- A large, sea turtle-riding Asian genie who offers French fries to all he meets.
- Two friendly large-sized mermaids, the female's name being Martha, while the male's being unknown.
- An over-sized Sloane Viperfish that will devour anything nearby, but only after the word West is spoken four times.
- Ironically, all of the creatures of the Wessst (except the Westman and the Sloane Viperfish) seem to be extremely kind creatures. One was seen offering a starving K'nuckles and Flapjack some food (more specifically, a French fry), though they turned it down.
- The seawater in The Wessst seems to be a severe Hallucinogen. After Flapjack and K'nuckles drank it, they started seeing strange images which became more awkward as it went. It started with Candied Island, then Candied Island fell into the ocean, the sail on their raft turned into the Westman, then the face Flapjack drew on his foot started to talk, then Flapjack and K'nuckles ended up in a giant bathtub, and then the chubby serpent was in the bathtub and unintentionally knocked them to their deaths. Suddenly, they woke up. Seawater in the real world causes dehydration, though.
