Whoracle is the 3rd studio album by Swedish metal band In Flames, released on 18 November 1997. The title of the album is a portmanteau of the English words "whore" and "oracle".

Apart from "Everything Counts", which is a cover of a Depeche Mode song, all songs were composed and arranged by In Flames. The lyrics were translated by Dark Tranquillity guitarist Niklas Sundin, after Anders Fridén had written them in Swedish.

Whoracle is the final album to feature Johan Larsson and Glenn Ljungström. It is also the last In Flames release with Björn Gelotte playing drums, as he permanently switched to lead guitar in future releases. Fredrik Nordström noted that it was not easy to record at times, since the band members usually preferred drinking beer and playing Tekken 3.

In 2020, it was named one of the 20 best metal albums of 1997 by Metal Hammer magazine.
