A portmanteau[[note]](pronounced \pȯrt-ˈman-(ˌ)tō\ or "port-man-TOE")[[/note]] is a new word formed by joining two others and combining their meanings; "smog" is a blend of "smoke" and "fog"; "motel" is a portmanteau word made by combining "motor" and "hotel". Essentially, the written equivalent of {{Frankenstein}}'s monster.

The word itself is an obsolete term for a kind of suitcase that opens into two hinged compartments. It was first used to describe blends of words by Creator/LewisCarroll in ''[[Literature/AliceInWonderland Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There]]'', when Humpty Dumpty explains to Alice the word "slithy" from the poem "Literature/{{Jabberwocky}}":

->"Well, ''slithy'' means ''lithe'' and ''slimy''... You see, it's like a portmanteau -- there are two meanings packed up into one word."

Before first-letter acronyms were standard, this was thought to be just fantastic by up-and-coming political movements in the '30s, which is why we have the words [=StuKa=], [=NaZi=], [=GeStaPo=], [=StaSi=], [=GULag=], [=ComIntern=] and [=SovNarKom=]. Consequently, fictional totalitarian governments often use them to play on these connotations. Portmanteaus are still common in Germany to this day, unlike America where three letter initialisms are the standard. In countries that don't use alphabets, like Japan, this is also still the standard, which is why PortmanteauSeriesNickname is full of anime show examples.

Incidentally, the original French word "portemanteau" is a portmanteau. "Porte" means carries and "manteau" means coat, so a portemanteau is something that carries your coat. In modern French the word means coat hanger instead of a type of suitcase, and the literary equivalent is called a "mot-valise", or "suitcase-word".

* ''RODTheTV'': Joker's codename is a portmanteau of his real name ('''Joe Car'''penter). (Well, or maybe Joe Carpenter is a pseudonym derived from the codename...but either way, portmanteau.)
* In the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''[[note]]"Pokemon" itself is a portmanteau of "pocket" and "monsters"[[/note]] episode "Short and to the Punch", Clayton the martial artist insists on giving portmanteau nicknames to everyone and [[{{Crunchtastic}} coining abbreviations for common phrases]]. For example, Ash and Buizel are referred to as Ashbui. This trait was carried over largely unchanged from [[PortmanteauSeriesNickname the Japanese version]].
** Many, [[WorldOfPun if not all]], of the Pokemon names are portmanteaus. Bulbasaur is "bulb" and "dinosaur". Charmander is "charred" and "salamander". Squirtle is "squirt" and "turtle". And we're not even past the starter choices of the ''first'' game yet!

* As one might expect, The TropeNamer, ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', is chocabloc full of portmanteau words, at least one of which, chortle, made it into common usage. The poem "Literature/{{Jabberwocky}}" is practically a compendium of portmanteau words, (brillig, slithy, wabe, outgrabe and that's just the first stanza) most of which did not make it into common usage, unless someone is feeling arch and wants to show off their vocabulary.
* In ''Literature/FeliksNetAndNika'' robots in Institute are named by portmanteaus of their functions.

[[folder:Prestling (Pro Wrestling)]]
* {{Edge}} and {{Christian}} were infamous for doing this sort of thing. The best example was ramipercussions, a combination of ramifications and repercussions. Also, due to the TripleH-led [[TheCorporation Corporation]] / DGenerationX alliance being alternately called the "[=McMahon-Helmsley=] Faction" and the "[=McMahon-Helmsley=] Regime", they called it the "Fac-gime".
* Some tag team names are Portmanteaus, such as [[LayCool [=LayCool=]]], comprised of Layla and Michelle [=McCool=].

* The Clans from ''TabletopGame/{{BattleTech}}'' shun the use of contractions, yet will combine other words like ''quaiff'' (query affirmative) and ''quineg'' (query negative).

[[folder:Vidgas (Video Games)]]
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Diablo}} Diablo II]]''
** The strategy guides and developer comments refer to the Amazon character as a "spearazon" or a "bowazon", depending on which skill tree the player specializes in.
** Paladin builds do much the same thing, from the Hammerdin (Paladin who uses Blessed Hammer), Auradin (Paladin who uses auras) and the Vengadin or Avenger (Paladin who uses Vengeance). There's also a build using Holy Freeze and Zeal which is called (appropriately) the [[IncrediblyLamePun Freezealot]].
** Assassins are primarily grouped into Kicksins (those who use kung fu) and Trapsins (those who use traps).
* ''WorldOfWarcraft'' also has the Healadin and Retadin paladin builds.
** In the Beta and Vanilla days there were dozens more, but they fell by the wayside as online resources (such as wikis) started standardizing information and slang from the smaller crowds started merging. Truid (Tree + Druid), Dammy (DPS + Shaman), Ironwind/Stormforge (Merging two nearby starting city names to differentiate them from Darnassus, which was significantly farther away) come to mind.
* ''{{Pokemon}}''
** Most Pokémon names are Portmanteaus. Example: Treecko = tree + gecko.
** "Pokémon" is in itself a Portmanteau. (Pocket + Monsters)
** It's all over the {{Metagame}}, a fan tendency to combine Pokemon names with moves or abilities. Snorlax with Curse=Curselax, the rare event Bagon/Shelgon/Salamence with Wish is Wishgon/Wishmence ect.
** ''[[VideoGame/PokkenTournament Pokken]]'' = Pokémon + {{Tekken}}
* The game ''[[VideoGame/{{Worms}} Worms 4: Mayhem]]'' uses poxels. Poxel is a portmanteau of polygon and voxel, which is a portmanteau of volume and pixel, which is a portmanteau of picture and element. In other words, it's a polygon volume picture element.
* The Gymnatorium from ''[[BackyardSports Backyard Basketball]]'' is a portmanteau of gymnasium and auditorium.
* ''SamuraiShodown'' is a sort of half-example: "shodown" is meant to be a combination of "showdown" and "shogun," but the end result is phonetically identical to one of the words that make it up.
* ''{{Somari}}'' is what you get when you combine Franchise/{{Sonic|TheHedgehog}} and {{Mario}}.
* {{Carmageddon}} (Car+ Armageddon) is a graphically violent vehicular combat 1997 PC video game.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has (in-universe) ALMSIVI, for Almalexia, Sotha Sil, Vivec (the three gods of Morrowind's Tribunal). [[spoiler: By the end of the game and expansions, two of the gods are certainly dead, and one goes missing not so long afterwards (to leave it ambiguous if he was killed or not), so the term has fallen out of favour by the time we get a closer look at Dunmeri culture again.]]
* Shoot-em-ups eventually came to be referred to as shmups.
* ''VideoGame/{{Jardinains}}'' = "jardin"[[note]]French for "garden"[[/note]]+"nains"[[note]]French for "dwarf"[[/note]]. It's probably a reference to the garden gnome-like creatures in the game that want to make your life miserable, but burst into powerups if you bounce them enough times.

The Strong Bad Email "dictionary" even hangs a lampshade on this fact by creating a dictionary of Strong Badian English, introducing several new portmanteaus in the process. Their [[http://www.hrwiki.org/wiki/Portmanteaus wiki has a list]]. And the mash-ups of various phrases, such as: "All contestants will receive a year's supply of our home game."

Flavors include Shockolate, Rawberry, Manana, Fizzbitch (?), Juice Springsteen, "Godberry: King of the Juice," and [[OddNameOut Gun]]. (And don't forget, it's energy for men... MENERGY!

-->'''Mellisa:''' Yes.
-->'''Jason:''' Or 'plizzness.'

* Real life has an equivalent called "compound words". However, letters are not taken out of the words themselves, they are just slammed together. Some examples are "lifetime" (life time), "pickpocket" (pick pocket), and "windmill" (wind mill).
* Oxymorons are like compound words, except the words are the ''exact opposite'' of each other. However, the words have nothing to do with the context of the word itself. Some examples are "ballpoint" (ball point), "begone" (be gone), and even the word "oxymoron" (oxy moron, from the Greek words for "sharp" and "dull").
