"Why'd I go" is on point. If you happened to see the comment I posted earlier it kinda consumes the reason for doing things, leading to the inevitable "Why did I even come here?" type questioning. Along with other such things.

The Unanswered Question of “Why am I here? Why did I come here?” and the concept of “I am not why I am.” A creature of meaninglessness, meaningless inquiry, removing causal meaning from a situation and feeding off of it.

Whydigos can be seen in various places, particularly areas with treasure or monsters that the party may want to acquire or kill.  By consuming the boss, switch, key, or the treasure it removes the reason the party went into the dungeon in the first place which leads to moments of meaninglessness and forces the characters to reflect on said meaninglessness.
