Some people make a distinction between a noob and a newb, with a "newb" being a level-headed beginner who is polite, heeds advice, and honestly wishes to improve, while a "noob" is [[SmallNameBigEgo obnoxious, annoying, and overconfident]]. In other words, everyone starts as a newb -- you're only a noob if you don't grow out of it. The difference is described in [[http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20060823 this comic]].

*The term appears in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone'', though occasionally something else is used. Mattagandas refers to beginning adventurers as “newborns.”
**The four are essentially demigod-strength noobs. This is problematic for everyone, including themselves.

* The ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' community has a term for this player, [=F2P=] or "Free to Play". A [=F2P=] is a new player that doesn't have a premium account which means they're either extremely new to this game or they don't want to bother to get into it, both of which implies they have no idea how the game works[[labelnote:an example]]A Sniper trying to shoot through a window pane to no success but keeps trying anyway[[/labelnote]]. [=F2P=] also means any item a new player can easily get like [[https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Ghostly_Gibus "Ghostly Gibus"]], a worn-out old tophat. [=F2P=]s are [[SuffersNewbiesPoorly often held in contempt]] as they are seen at best endearingly incompetent and in need of help from more experienced players or {{Scrub}}s that should go back to Call of Duty/Battlefield. In general, [=F2P=] is thrown around as a catch-all term for a Noob/{{Scrub}}.

** The character Meg in the Player-Owned Ports is an in-universe new adventurer, though she behaves more like a "newb" than a "noob". Once a week, she'll ask you for advice on an adventure, take your advice to heart (whether it's [[VideoGameCaringPotential good]] or [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential bad]]), and give you a share of her loot after a successful adventure.

* A "Gamer's Glossary" segment of ''Webcomic/CtrlAltDel'' tackled the differences between a ''newb'' and a ''[[Letters2Numbers noob/n00b]]''. Neither know what they're doing at first, but a ''newb'' will learn from mistakes while a ''noob'' will never admit to any wrongdoing.

The newbie and noob also appear in other cooperative and competitive genres besides the MMORPG. In less-structured games, newbies may just get rolled over, insulted, and forgotten; noobs are the ones who have picked up on the [[ComplacentGamingSyndrome least-inspired or lamest strategies]] and earn the ire of those who are [[StopHavingFunGuys playing more "skillfully" and getting beaten]]. In teamplay-oriented games, the team often helps the polite newbie along, as it may result in their team winning more often; the noob will probably be the [[LeeroyJenkins guy crashing planes into individual enemies or charging into the enemy base carrying the flag]], and so other players will probably just try to steal the helicopters before they can. In cooperative games, the teams tend to be small and everyone's contributions important: the newbie is exasperating to have on your side; the noob is usually booted from the server very quickly.

* Lord En, of ''Manga/{{Beelzebub}}''. A preteen demon who loves video games, he is nonetheless horrible at them. So he gets his demon maidservants to help him out by altering the game (from activating basic hacks and glitches with magic to enabling things not available in a game so he can win). Notable, these maids know he is really a Noob, but since whenever he cries the surrounding area is drowned in a sea of fire, they don't let him catch on.

* Any form of the ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' online multiplayer will see this a lot, player will be called noobs for such things as using grenade launchers ("noobtubing") or random spray fire from the hip.
* In the {{MMORPG}} ''VideoGame/{{Runescape}}'', the term "noob" is often used as a very derogatory term--akin to calling someone a "knob"--regularly thrown about with no prior provocation. Players were reported for this so much, the rules now clearly state that use of the term "noob" (or any variant thereof) ONLY means "newb/new player" and is not a reason to report players. Try telling ''that'' to veteran players when they're called a noob...
