Which makes no sense, given if he had such strict adherance to the rules as Lawful Stupid requires, he would have turned Yuri in the moment he discovered Yuri's brand of 'Justice' despite their friendship. Instead he lets him go, multple times- They only fight after Yuri makes Flynn take the credit for fixing the world's problems.
"The Power of Christ Compels You" - moniker assigned to Estelle's Mystic Arte, given the fact that she starts rising up and the background shows a church, while she heals the party and attacks at the same time.
Bob - Hwoarang, where "Bob" stands for "Boy on Bike", due to people's difficulty spelling Hwoarang's name. Things changed when a character named Bob was included in the Tekken 6 roster. Nowadays, the "Bob" that is Hwoarang's Fan Nickname must be spelled with all caps, BOB.
EWGF - short for Electric Wind God Fist, an improved juggle standing uppercut that leaves trails of lightning (even when it doesn't hit). Owned by the Mishima Karate users (Kazuya, Heihachi, and Devil Jin). Normal Jin also has it, but since it's not an uppercut, it's called EWHF (Electric Wind Hook Fist). Note that this move doesn't appear in the command list (only the normal Wind God Fist is listed); therefore, fans came up with "EWGF" to differentiate the two.
Mystic Man Bentley/MMB - abbreviated honorific nickname for Heihachi Mishima, short for "Mystic Manly Heihachi MuthaF**kin' Mishima Bentley Jr."
B^U (pronounced 'b to the u') - Also the Sniper, thanks to his face (huge sunglasses, a pointed nose and a half-open drawling mouth). Developed from the use of the same name to make fun of the webcomic Ctrl+Alt+Del, for having limited facial expressions.
Engie - Engineer
Solly - Soldier
Pyro-kun/Pyro-tan - Pyro, due to the possibility that "he" might actually be a "she".
Also W+M1, because ever since the Pyro Update that improved the class's range, some players complain that's all the input the character needs to play.
Aero - Name used in response to patch responding to that which boosted the airblast but reduced the Flamethrower's direct and burning damage (which was mostly rescinded).
Flyro, a Pyro wearing their beanie hat unlock.
Hammer Bro: a Homewrecker-wielding Pyro. Especially to Engineers.
Pyros with the Homewrecker are also sometimes called Pybros (Pyro + bro).
CHAOS Pyro: A derisive nickname for poor Pyro players who run into a crowd, set fire to a few enemies and then die, thanks to their justification that they're contributing by 'sowing chaos'.
Recently, he has garnered nicknames like HAVY or HEBEE, imitating the spelling of a 6-year-old.
Hoovy and Hooby are also accepted nicknames.
Heavy itself is shorthand for Heavy Weapons Guy, although it's been canon for quite a while.
Scoot - Incredibly lazy nickname for the Scout. It stuck, though, probably because of how much it fits.
Also based on how Demoman pronounces the name in his thick Scottish accent.
Scout's mom is also often referred to as "Scootma"
Spamoman - A name given to the Demoman due to the amount of grenades and stickies he has and his overall spam-ability. Used by people who generally dislike that class.
Spamobot - The various Demomen robots, other than individual regular Demomen robots, since their sheer number and/or modified weapons let them spam grenades en masse.
Demospam - The actual act of spamming stickies and grenades.
Crocket - A critical rocket, pretty much a guaranteed kill on anyone other than a Heavy. Also known as Critrawket.
It may or may not be coincidence that in Real Life there's a missile launcher that fire miniature nukes known as the Davy Crocket.
Also, Heavy-specific achievement given for surviving a hit with a Crocket is called "Crock Block".
Referred to by name in the Soldier achievement "Crockets Are Such BS", for firing two crit rockets in a row without any boosting effects.
Soldier also had this unused line for killing people with critical rockets, driving the point home.
SKILL! - the...somewhat bitter nickname people have for those sudden, unexpected criticals.
Ambassaderp - Both an affectionate and also possibly derisive nickname for The Spy's Ambassador unlockable revolver. Started showing up when more than one critical per second became possible. Cries of "OP!" could be heard for miles.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMBASSADOR: A nickname given to a rare glitch that occurred after the Spy and Sniper weapons were introduced, and an update to the backpack system happened shortly thereafter. The glitch involved items overlapping in the backpack, which caused some classes to spawn with incorrect items on certain servers (Scouts with huntsmen, etc). The glitch receives its name from the fact that, if you ended up with the ambassador as an overlapping item, you'd be able to rapid fire bullets at a rate faster than the heavy's minigun with it equipped. As engineer.
Demoknight: A name given to Demomen who use the Targe and sword/axe combo. May be be used pejoratively by those who think such players are not playing the character right.
Charging Tard is also used.
Now actually referred by name in the set One Thousand and One Demoknights
Turtlefort: 2fort for the enforced stalemate
Trade Fortress, Hat Fortress: the fact that it went from a team-oriented multiplayer game to, quote: "War-themed Hat Simulator" does not help.
AIDS: The Team Fortress Classic Medic's virus attack, now also used in the sequel to refer to the bleed effect from the Sniper's Tribleman Shiv and the Engineer's Southern Hospitality.
God Mode: A nickname for gunslinger engies, originating with this person.
Tunnel Vision: The "condition" of an inexperienced Sniper focusing exclusively on what's in his rifle's scope, leaving him as primo Spy bait. Not exactly exclusive to TF2 but used most frequently there.
Direct Shit: The Direct Hit, a weapon that's become rather despise by some people for how difficult the smaller radius of Splash Damage makes it to use.
Dr. Enforcicle: A Spy using the Dead Ringer watch, the Enforcer, and the Spycicle. Often said to be the one of the most overpowered weapon combinations, due to the Enforcer giving a damage boost for a downside that does not effect the Dead Ringer at all, as well as the fire-immunity the Spycicle temporarily gives (the Pyro is otherwise the Spy's biggest weakness and fire was one of the only three ways to track a Spy activating the Dead Ringer, the other two being single unlockables that can only be used once every twenty seconds).
Tommy Gruvich: A Heavy using the Tomislav minigun, the GRU (Gloves of Running Urgently) and the Sandvich. This combination is also generally thought to be overpowered, as it eliminates many of the Heavy's weaknesses. The Tomislav is a weaker, but much quieter and faster-starting minigun, so many players use it to ambush enemies, the GRU gives the Heavy (slowest class in the game) more running speed in exchange for health, and the Sandvich heals him. A Heavy can drop Sandviches for allies to pick up and heal themselves with, but most just dropped the Sandvich for themselves for an instant heal (which is why later was patched out, and it instead just gives the Sandvich back).
Trolldier: A Soldier using the Rocket Jumper (no damage but no self damage for Rocket Jumps), Mantreads (reduced knockback from damaging sources and a Goomba Stomp), and Market Gardener (like the shovel but gets guaranteed crits while in midair). This weapon combination is very underpowered, in contrast to the above two, but professional Soldier players sometimes use this loadout just to make the point that yes, they are so skilled at this game, they can do just fine even with an underpowered combination.
Flare-Punching: Common Pyro strategy where the Pyro shoots a flare at an enemy (which sets the enemy on fire, but does a paltry 30 damage), and then shoots another flare at the same enemy (which does a much more impressive 90 damage).
Giant Octo-(class): the giant robots being healed/übered by many Medics. Comes from this popular fan video of nine players with a sense of humor and too much time on their hands.
Revengineer: An Engineer that uses the Combat Mini-Sentry (which fast to build and costs only 100 metal) and the Frontier Justice (which gives a guaranteed revenge crit for every kill your sentry scored, once it's destroyed).
Skillstabs: For when spies pull more tricksy maneuvers in order to drive their knives into enemies' backs:
Stairstab: Leading an enemy to chase you upstairs, then jumping backwards over them and stabbing them.
Cornerstab: Doing the same with corners, with the expectation that the enemy will turn the corner as tight as they can, so you make a wide berth around them and stab them before they realize you came back.
Sidestab: Hitting an enemy on their side just close enough to their back that it still counts as a One-Hit Kill.
Facestab: Much more derogatory term for when players get unfairly backstabbed while facing towards the spy, usually due to lag compensation.
Brass Sentry: The Brass Beast minigun, since it slows Heavy to the point that he might as well be a stationary Sentry Gun while firing.
Chain Uber/Uber Chain: Two Medics using the default Medigun and Ubersaw, which allows them to keep ubercharging towards enemies and refilling their ubers quickly with the saws.
Piss Rifle: The Sydney Sleeper, which allows Snipers to bodyshot people more effectively and coat them in Jarate in exchange for headshot capability. Sometimes derogatory, since people claim it's a noob weapon for people who can't hit heads in the first place.
Pocket Medic: A Medic that only ever heals one teammate, no matter how badly everybody else needs it. The term became so popular, a cosmetic item even came out named after it.
"Touhous" or "The Touhous" plural, referring to the cast of the game.
China - Hong Meiling. When she first made her debut in The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, people weren't sure whether to read her name as Hong Meiling (the Chinese reading) or Kurenai Misuzu (the Japanese reading). Compromises were reached. ZUN later confirmed that it was Hong Meiling, but even he himself admits to calling her China.
Sometimes called Girl Scout, by those who see a resemblance between the old green Girl Scout uniforms and China/Meiling's outfit.
Zombie Reimu - Reimu Hakurei in Mountain of Faith. The in-game art depicts her with a peculiarly jaundiced skintone for no apparent reason, leading to the obvious conclusion that she is actually an undead zombie.
Sometimes she is "Raymoo".
The Drunk One - Suika Ibuki
Also used to refer to ZUN, who according to fans is, like Suika, never sober.
Peaches - Tenshi Hinanai, named for the peaches on her hat.
Also Rocky, because she fights with stones.
"Tenko" is another way of reading the kanji in her name, and is a popular nickname for her in both Western and Eastern fandom.
PAD-Chou ("Chief PAD") - Sakuya Izayoi, under suspicion of padding, er, a couple of her assets. Derived from the discrepancy between the depiction of said assets in Immaterial and Missing Power and the other games. She's also sometimes referred to as Sakuya Brando for her rampant (intentional) similarities with Dio Brando.
Knife Maid - Sakuya is the maid of the Scarlet Mansion, and fights by throwing knives and manipulating time.
Patchy - Patchouli Knowledge
Mukyuu-chan - Patchy again, due to her fan-created Catch Phrase.
Purple Bean Sprout - Used mostly by Japanese fans, though.
Remi - Remilia Scarlet. Sometimes used by Patchouli, suggesting some level of intimacy.
⑨, or Nine-ball - Cirno. Her meteoric rise to fame began with a game screenshot in the manual of Phantasmagoria of Flower View, in which her in-game sprite was labelled "⑨: Baka".
"The Strongest!" - another name for Cirno, based on her terribly inaccurate assessment of her level of power. note Ironically despite being a weak miniboss, fairies are considered Mooks so just being a miniboss is an impressive feat for a fairy. So in a sense she might not be THE strongest character in the entire series but she IS the Strongest Fairy. Used either endearingly or mockingly depending on the individual.
Sirkku - Cirno's nickname in Finland, partly because it's an actual and common Finnish name, partly because Finnish people can't pronounce "Cirno" or "Chiruno".
⑥, or Six-ball - Reiuji Utsuho, in honor of her ditzy naivete, heat-based, rather than ice-based powers, genuinely being one of the strongest characters, and being called a birdbrain by her friend Orin in the Subterranean Animism Extra Stage introduction.
Other nicknames include Chernobyl-tan and Nuke-tan (for her nuclear fusion powers), Bahamuko (for her Mega Flare spellcard), and Samus Unyu (the control rod she wears on her left arm is often depicted as an Arm Cannon, and "Unyu?" in her fanmade Catch Phrase/Verbal Tic).
Youkai Moe - Yuuka Kazami, from her bizarre character profile in the manual for Kioh Gyouku, a game for which ZUN composed the music and in which Yuuka is a playable character.
More recently applied to Kogasa as well, due to a massive number of Moe characteristics she has.
John Travolta - Iku Nagae, who takes a pose recalling Saturday Night Fever when summoning lightning.
"Bucket Ranka" - Kisume, who looks like Macross's Ranka.
Kisume actually more closely resembles Mikaze Honjou from Stratos 4, but that show's not as famous. But now you know.
Youkai Jesus - Byakuren, the buddhist monk who preached for peace between human and youkai, was sealed for a thousand years for her efforts and attracted the respect of a great number of youkai. Also known as the Youchrist.
CAPTAIN MINAMITSU MURASA - Minamitsu achieved Memetic Badass status following her theme music (Captain Murasa), and can now only be respectfully addressed as this.
Now, now. You got it wrong. It's CAPTAIN MINAMITSU MOTHERFUCKING MURASA, silly.
U.F. Owen - Nue's theme, Heian Alien, is reminiscent of U.N. Owen was Her?, the very popular theme song of Flandre Scarlet.
Tokiko - "Crested ibis child", an originally unnamed book-reading youkai from Curiosities of Lotus Asia.
Myon - Youmu Konpaku herself (in Eastern fandom) or specifically her ghost half (in Western fandom), after an odd bit of dialogue in the introduction to the Extra Stage of Perfect Cherry Blossom in which she asks what Yuyuko is doing in such a "myon" place.
Mannosuke - Rinnosuke, the only humanoid male in the entirety of Touhou.
Alternatively, Trollosuke, for when Rinnosuke screws around (no, not that way) with the female cast in fanworks where everyone is Kourin-sexual.
Primeus - Unnamed Giant Catfish AKA Namazu, the villainous avatar of Taisui Xingjun, a God of Destruction in Hisoutensoku. Named after a MUGEN Joke Character by RicePigeon resembling a giant salmon, originally released under the name of "SSB Yukari". Nicknamed so due to, obviously, being a giant fish, and having made quite a few people go "What the heck is this crap?"
Unthinkable Natural Law - a nickname for Touhou Hisoutensoku (12.3) itself, since it was the first Touhou game without an official English title.
ZUN himself is referred to as "Kannushi" by some fans — literally "god master", the title of a Shinto priest.
Pyonta - Suwako's absurdlyNice Hat. When it's not depicted as being Suwako's actual form it is often depicted as an independent entity, either separate from Suwako or a parasite using her as a puppet.
A bunch for locations that never got any names: Rokkenjima proper, where all the murders occur, is referred to as the "chessboard," as that's where Battler's human chess game with Beatrice actually plays out. The place (EPISODE 2 spoilers) where Battler and Beatrice (and any other magical things) give their commentary on the game is usually referred to as the "meta-world."
Musou Rosa - Rosa Ushiromiya, after her awesome moment in EP 2 (musou meaning invincible)
Beato - Beatrice, the nickname derived from the romanization of her name.
Also, Beatroll, due to one of her expressions looking suspiciously like 4chan's Trollface, and because she trolls Battler. A lot.
Trollkastel - Bernkastel, once she starts smiling.
34 - Lambdadelta, her name equals 34 in greek
And Super Paper, after referring to herself as such in EP 2's Hidden Tea Party
Bronove - Ronove, due to his callous speech against Beato and good relationship with Battler
Moon-chan - Jessica, who is associated with the Moon tarot card
Magical Gohda Chef - Gohda, from a line in the Engrish "Happy Maria" song
Zeppeki-san - Lion, by the reasoning that if s/he is female, his/her chest must be flat as cliff
Shkanon, Shkanontrice - Used by fans who believe Shannon, Kanon, and/or Beatrice are the same person
[AuAu] - Featherine Augustus Aurora
Evatrice - Abbreviation for EVA-Beatrice
Sea Kittens - A pun on Umineko, which translates to Sea Cats
Derp Gun: The 152mm gun in the KV-2 turret. Slow to reload, not very accurate, but *deadly* with its HE rounds. This has since gone on to become a stock term used to describe any large calibre short length gun that relies more on blast effect and pure damage dealt.
LOLTractor: The tier 1 German Leichtraktor
Baby Maus: the French Hotchkiss H35 tank, because almost no tank at its low tier can punch through it's well-sloped, thick armor
Baby Tiger: the VK 3601(H). It carries the tiger's historical armament of the 88mm L56, and has the same frontal armour at a tier lower, allowing it to bounce shells better than the Tiger proper. Not only that, the Vk3601(H) IS basically the Tiger (H), just in its prototype form before it got the hull widened to accommodate the Tiger's larger turret.
The KV-1S has a couple just based on its name alone, some of which include:
KV-1 Sport, because of its higher speed then the KV-1 that precedes it.
KV-IS, because of the KV-1 hull, and IS turret.
The TOGII often gets called a battleship or land ship due to its large size.
Malinovka often gets called "Campinovka" due to the map layout, and the common tendency of many players to stay in the start positions.
The Bat Chation 25t is often called "Bat Chat" for short, although some call it "Bat Shit", especially when they've been killed by it.
Many of the 'cat' tanks often get called 'kitty' in chat by those that don't respect them. Considering that almost all of them have a fierce bite (the only exception being the VK 1602 Leopard Light Tank), these thoughts of 'weak tanks' are quickly thrown out.
Due to the sheer destructive power of the F V215b 183, it doesn't take long to figure out why people call it a Death Star.
To make it clear, with HESH rounds, the tank dishes out over 1900 points of damage, WITH a splash radius that's still able to knock off health even in cases where the tracks eat the shot. With a high damage roll, it can One-Hit Kill an E-100 or Maus, while a low damage roll will leave the target tank either dead, or wishing he was with several crew dead, the tracks gone, and several modules just wrecked.
The S35 CA is often referred to as the "Bathtub" because of it's odd shape which (obviously) looks like a bathtub on tracks with a gun.
Feral-combat druids get called "bears", "bares" or "baers" (if they're usually in their ursine warrior-mimic form in a fight) or "kitties" and "cats" (for those who favor the feline "rogue" form). Bear druids are known as "Winky tanks" on some servers. Restoration druids are "trees." As for balance druids...
There's also Polish nickname "Misiek" for bear form which could be translated as "Teddy".
OOMkin, Boomkin, Doomkin - The druid's moonkin form, which deals lots of damage but goes through mana very quickly to do so. Less often, Lazer Chicken or Nuklear Rooster.
Also Boom-Boom, Boomer, Critbird, Space Owl, Turkey. Pretty much any combination of "Laser", "Crit", or "Space" and "Bird", "Chicken", or "Turkey".
And with the addition of Wild Mushroom in Cataclysm, some are already being called Shroomkin.
Panzerkin - A druid who tanks as a Moonkin rather than as a Bear, the more obvious form. Largely abandoned as changes to the game have made Panzerkins far less effective.
Some people call them KFC (Kentucky Frying Chickens).
"OO Mkin" started to die off after the release of Wrath of the Lich King, since the changes to Moonkin form resulted in them being able to maintain their mana supply for much longer periods of time.
Rawrbomb, Bearbomb - A technique where a (feral) Druid shifts from flying form, midflight, into Bear form and using Feral Charge to jump the target while avoiding fall damage. This does not necessarily need to be done from flight form. It is a common tactic in Arathi Basin. A failed attempt is known as Rawrsplat.
Also Drop-Bear (used as a verb). Perhaps not entirely by coincidence, 'drop-bears' are a form of practical joke in Australia, where clueless tourists will be warned to watch out for 'drop-bears' that fall out of trees onto your head. No such creatures exist, of course.
Warriors can take advantage of this as well simply by attacking from their flying mount, often called "Warrior Slow Fall".
Huntard - A hunter who never learned how to properly pull, control his pet, or use traps — all essential hunter skills. The common joke is that the majority of Hunters are Huntards - and this joke is made by Hunter players.
Easymode = Beast mastery hunter.
Also "Auto-Shot Feed Pet" for the low-effort playstyle that most Huntards use - basically all they do is auto-attack and remember to feed their pet every now and then. A variant is "Feed Shot Auto Pet" for those who fail to grasp the class's base mechanics.
Hunter Loot - pretty much anything remotely of value, thanks to the Huntard tendency to constantly Need on Need/Greed rolls. To be fair, early in the game's life, the low number of melee weapons with stats appropriate for hunters led some to declare that any melee weapon with Agility on it should be left for Hunters, as nothing else was of any use to them. This devolved into the tendency for commenters on fansite databases to declare any reasonably desirable or powerful item as "hunter gear", even if hunters are incapable of equipping the item, or if it isn't even gear to begin with.
Raggy, Rags - Ragnaros, the final boss of the pre-expansion ultimate raid dungeon, Molten Core
Memegiver - Prince Malchezaar, the final boss of the Burning Crusade raid dungeon Karazhan. Referred to as such on Boulderfist because he drops Gorehowl, a weapon commonly spammed on Boulderfist's trade chat for reasons not quite clear.
Also, "Prince Hotpants" in more general use.
The obvious "Shammy" for shaman; "Healy" for their Restoration (Healing) spec, "Zappy" for their Elemental (caster) spec and "Bashy" for their Enchancement (melee) spec
The more prosaic abbreviations "Resto", "Ele" and "Enh" are also in use, each coupled with "Shammy".
Shamikaze - A shaman that maximizes burst damage at the cost of survivability.
Hell/lock cookies/candies - Healthstones distributed by a warlock. Sometimes come in an evil-looking jar, and said to be made of souls that the warlock as drained.
They have also been called boogers/crystalized boogers from their color. Also called gumballs and their summoning item as a gumball machine.
Fel candy is also a semi-popular name for them.
Summonsing portals are often called "Lock TV", due to looking a little like a television set. Also known as the Doom Closet, as they rise up out of the ground and open like a wardrobe.
Muffin Factory - At Blizzcon, during the announcement of the first expansion, one of the fans asked the panel, "Will mages be getting something for mass food distribution, like muffin factories?" This has led to this name being used.
Welfare Epics - Gear acquired for PvE use by farming Honour points in PvP. Used primarily as a source of derision; to speak of a player having 'Welfare Epics' in a World of Warcraft setting usually implies that that player is unskilled or otherwise didn't take any real risk to obtain the gear.
Tankadin/Protadin - Paladins that focus on the Protection talent tree, giving them almost stupidly high damage absorbtion.
A build that was only possible much earlier in the game, which involving a glitchy talent called 'Reckoning'. The talent would give a chance for the Paladin to gain an extra attack when hit. However, if they never attacked, the extra attacks would stack up until they did, potentially doing a One-Hit Kill against enemies and players by a flurry of many sudden attacks in an instant. If out of range or otherwise stopped from performing an attack when initiating the auto-attack, the extra attacks would be lost inconsequentially, but the sheer amount of damage that could be done by the attack had it nicknamed the 'Reck(oning) Bomb'.
Contrast Healadin for healing pallies, and Retadin (or the pejorative Retardin) for damage-per-second paladins (a controversial playstyle, as the spec is difficult to play well, and played badly notoriously often). An older variation of Healadin was Clothadin, thanks to the fact that holy paladins usually performed better in cloth items (rather than plate) in raids in vanilla WoW. And "shockadins", an extinct form of half holy (down to holy shock) and ret, which basically made them powerful ranged casters as well as melee. Not viable anymore though.
Paladins have been given many nicknames; some pointless, other less so; involving '-adin'. This probably started from Diablo higher on the list.
Wings and Ret bull for Avenging Wrath, a paladin signature that increases the damage and healing of said paladin by 20% and gives him access to his most powerful attack without having to first lower his target to under 20% hp. It's shown as a pair of wings, and has been the butt of no end of jokes.
Rocky - The Elemental summoned into being by a shaman's Earth Elemental Totem.
Felpuppy - Any Felhound, particularly the ones summoned by warlocks.
Dorf - Dwarves
Funderstorm - the Eleshammy's Thunderstorm spell that is used for knocking people away from the caster, usually off a cliff where they would die from falling damage.
Also known as Thunderfuck
Blueberry - Warlock Voidwalker minion
Also, Volkswagen due to the shared abbreviation.
The Warlock Succubus pet is referred to as your "slut" or "whore" as much as "succubus", with "suck" being a popular in-between for obvious reasons.
Also "fel-slut," "fel-hussy," and so on.
"Spanky" is also a less derisive option while still calling attention to the fact she's a sex demon. The name comes from the fact when idle every minute or so she'll shake her ass then smack it.
Welcomebear - The Diseased Black Bears that loiter just across the border between the level-50+ Western Plaguelands and (Forsaken starting area) Tirisfal Glades. Fond of killing newbies that take the wrong turn out of Tirisfal.
Also used in reference to the similarly undead-looking Angerclaw Bears just past the border between Ashenvale (levels 18 to 30) and Felwood (levels 47 to 55).
Also potentially, Welcomespiders for the Plaguelands or Welcomewolves for Felwood. You may also see Welcome-Elementals for the otherwise unobstructed border between Redridge Mountains (roughly 15-20) and Burning Steppes (about 50-53).
Thongbear - Furbolgs in general, as they are anthropomorphic bears. In thongs.
Furbies has often been used, sometimes. (Bloodscalp)
Level FUCK - Running into an enemy who is 10+ levels higher than you, in which their level is displayed as a skull. The common reaction to it is, "I'm being attacked by a level — (gets attacked, dies) — FUCK!"
Holy Cow – The recently implemented tauren paladins and priests, collectively. You automatically get a free pass at calling a player this if their name is something same or similar to Retbull, Holycow, or Serhoofim.
Hell one of the Specs for paladins and priests is holy
Unholy Cow - Unholy-spec Death Knight Tauren.
Lagforge, Lagginforge, Ironlag - a now-deprecated nickname that was once applied to the dwarven city of Ironforge — in the first year of the game, Ironforge housed one of two auction houses in the entire game world, which caused every player who required their services to visit the city. Additionally, the bank, mailbox, auction house, and main entrance were all within 150 feet of each other which concentrated the players even more.
Lagrimmar - Orgrimmar; see previous.
Thrall-Mart - the Orgrimmar auction house.
Lag-rath - Shattrath City; see Ironforge.
DaLAGran, Lag-aran - Dalaran; see Ironforge.
Cybermoon - derisive nickname for Silvermoon City, largely on RP servers
Pornshire - Goldshire; see "Cybermoon."
Cutefase - A female troll character with the youthful, deadpan (or, alternately, stoned-looking) face — which happens to be the only one that isn't generally considered ugly or at least evil-looking, and is therefore the most popular. Especially when paired with the smallest possible tusks, a topknot, or both.
Less commonly, a female orc character with the young-looking face option.
A "Smoothfase" is a male draenei devoid of facial hair and tendrils. A completely bald Smoothfase is a "Cueball." A "Tailfase" (that's the polite term) is a male draenei with the single tendril and accompanying Fu Manchu mustache (ditto).
Crack Elf - Any blood elf, due to their magical addiction and occasionally jittery mannerisms.
Also, Blood Elves get called "fabulous" as often as possible, due to the males and females both being rather feminine.
Also commonly used to describe the Wretched, a subspecies of High/Blood Elves that have completely succumbed to magical addiction. ("crackelf" is even the actual name for their in-game model.)
Shamadruidin - Hybrid classes in general.
Quantumdruid/quantumshammy/quantumpally - used in reference to hybrid players who will respec at the drop of anything resembling a hat, for they are in a state of constant flux.
Ganklethorn Hell - used on PvP servers for Stranglethorn Vale since it is technically a high 20's ~ mid 30's zone with a high traffic of high level characters through it.
Also "Stranglepwn Vale" and any number of other variations.
Hillspwn, Ganksbrad, Hellsbrad, Hillsbrad Foothell, and any number of variations on those themes - Hillsbrad Foothills, for the same reason.
Baron Pants - Baron Rivendare from Stratholme; named for his droping the Dungeon Set 1 Legs. His horse was nicknamed "Trousers" for similar reasons.
Sylvie W - Derisive nickname for Sylvannas Windrunner due to her tendency to be depicted as a Woobie in fanfiction and RP. Hint: she isn't.
King Grunty, Grunty McGruntypants - King Varian Wrynn, named largely for his Jerkass characterization.
Crotchbumtits - Valeera Sanguinar from the comic, due to the artist's tendency to... focus on these body parts.
Ras Crossdresser - A boss called Ras Frostwhisper due to him appearing to wear a dress
Amnennar the Crossdresser - Another lich boss, for the same reason.
Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Dramaseeker, Dramafury = a legendary one-handed sword that was called such by some guilds who were destroyed by fights over people who wanted that drop.
Sulfuras, the Hand of Drama - A Legendary two-handed mace that also had caused people to argue over wanting it.
Ashkandi, the Sword of Drama - An epic two-handed sword dropped by the final boss in Blackwing Lair. Again, caused people to fight over it.
Also known as Ass Candy.
Vendorstrike - A polearm called Thunderstrike and Shadowstrike that was dropped by a boss very late in Molten Core that was Overshadowed by Awesome and thus commonly disenchanted or vendored.
Later also called Nexusstrike, after the Nexus Crystal that could be acquired from disenchanting one.
Molten Bore, Borewing Lair, Ahn'Boreaj, Haxxrammas - People who had grown tired of raiding these dungeons referred to them with names like these.
Toolhelm, Asshat, Asshelm, Dickhelm, Standral Faghelm - Fandral Staghelm, Archdruid of the Alliance and all-around jerkass.
One name that's popped up as of Patch 4.2 is "Majorhomo"
Crazy Cat Lady — Auriaya, a boss in the Ulduar instance. She is accompanied by four guardian panthers, will summon another panther guardian if you kill the four original ones, and periodically summons a swarm of cats (actually more panthers, but they are much smaller than her guardians) to come attack the whole group. Two of her attacks are "Horrifying Screech" and "Sonic Screech." When she is killed, she screams like, well, like a crazy cat lady.
Donni Anthania is the vendor of all of the companion pet cats for Alliance players. Her in-game title is "Crazy Cat Lady."
Death Knoob, Deathtard, Dork Knight, Dunce Knight, Fail Knight — Similar to "huntard", a poorly-played death knight.
To get more specific: a Griptard is a death knight who is willfully unfamiliar with the proper use of the Death Grip ability, while an Emo Knight is an obnoxiously wangsty death knight roleplayer.
Lavaman - Highlord Bolvar Fordragon after getting seriously messed up from both flesh-melting-zombie-virus and subsequent incineration, followed by torture he withstood despite it being so hardcore that it snapped the son of the Warcraft-universe equivalent of Chuck Norris almost immediately, possibly because his skin now looks as though it's covered in molten lava.
Actually the name came from "lavaman" being the official name for that sprite in the games text files. In fact the first time people saw it all they knew was that name. (Though some did guess at it being him.)
Monessa: A female troll. From the trollish habit of addressing everyone as "mon," plus a feminine suffix.
A resto shaman's Chain Heal gets called "banana beams", "Jesus Beams", or "healing lasers" due to their yellow, beam-like appearance.
Soda machines/Coke machines: The large machines in Gnomeregan that dispense Essential Artifacts (needed for a quest), named because they resemble vending machines.
Login Dragon: Sindragosa, since she is the first thing the player see in Wrath of The Lich King login screen, especially when everyone had yet to learn her name.
This title now applies to Deathwing since the release of Cataclysm, although due to proper marketing, more people know his actual name.
Frogger: A hallway in Naxxramas just after the fight with Patchwerk that is patrolled by several rows of infinitely respawning slimes, which inflict heavy damage and nearly kill most players in one hit if they merely get close to them. They move across the width of the walkway, and players must avoid them like they do the cars in Frogger. This is somewhat notorious because people tend to die fairly often on this part.
Done again in Ulduar, just before Mimiron, with a racetrack of explosive mini-cars that surround Mimiron's "workshop".
And again in an Icecrowl Citadel hallway between the fourth boss and the Upper Spire, where players must time their movements to avoid what looks like fog, and so it is often called Fogger.
3d: Shorthand for referring to a group that is attempting to kill Sartharion in Obsidian Sanctum without killing the Twilight Drakes (which there are three of, and so, 3 drakes or 3d), which makes the fight much more difficult, but grants three achievements and the chance to win a Twilight Drake mount.
Lightbulb: Lord Victor Nefarius, the boss of Blackrock Spire, named after Vic Fontaine, the holographic entertainer from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, whose first line in the series is 'I know what you're thinking: sweet pipes for a light bulb.'
Chocobo: the Blood Elf hawkstrider mounts, after the Final Fantasy bird of that name.
That Retarded Horse, Sparklepony, Spony: the Celestial Steed, the first mount to go on sale at the Blizzard cash store.
Lootship: Nickname for the Gunship Battle, by far the easiest boss encounter in Icecrown Citadel.
RP: A term that applies to cutscenes between lore characters that raid members have to sit through before beginning battle or getting at loot, such as the 40-second dialogue between Tirion Fordring and the Lich King at the start of the Lich King encounter.
Captain Planet: The Elementium Monstrosity, a raid boss in Bastion of Twilight that is the fusion of the elemental Ascendant Lords Feludius, Ignacious, Terrastra and Arion, a combination of all the elements that made up Captain Planet (except heart).
Commander Skipvale: Commander Springvale, an optional boss in Shadowfang Keep. Since he's more difficult than many of the other Heroic bosses, drops little in the way of good loot, and a major exploit to draw him away from his adds has been removed, many groups choose to walk past him.
The high-level Priest spell "Leap Of Faith" is almost always called "Life Grip" due to being the exact opposite of the Death Knight's "Death Grip". (DG pulls an enemy towards you at high speeds, Lo F/LG pulls a friendly player towards you at high speeds.)
"Driving"- The name for a single player telling the melee what direction to turn Rhyolith so that he steps on the volcanoes and does not reach the edge (which causes him to wipe the raid). "Drunk driving" is a term used for especially poor driving, usually if he hits the edge.
Elevator Boss - The elevator in Blackwing Descent. If you're not quick enough, you miss the elevator and fall to your death.
PokéWoW - The Pet Battle minigame planned for inclusion in the Mists of Pandaria expansion.
Farmville - another Pandaria minigame, where one faction lets players grow vegetables on a farm.
Bruced: A term for what happens to a player who dies to Bruce, the first opponent of the Brawler's Guild, who has relatively little HP, and only one major attack, which simply requires running away from his mouth before he finishes his cast.
Looking For Retards: One derisive name for the Looking for Raid feature, given by those who don't like being grouped with incompetent and/or under-geared players.
"Auto-pillock", for Artificial Stupidity in starship guidance (e.g. ship's autopilot has trouble avoiding an immobile asteroid several kilometers in diameter). "Bug-splatting" is a subtype where an NPC freighter (for instance) doesn't turn soon enough to avoid an oncoming player-piloted capital ship and gets run over.
"Ionized flak" is when you take a capital ship and combine Cluster Flak Arrays with Ion Disruptors in the same gun battery. The Ion-Ds can use the shrapnel from the CFAs to jump between targets, greatly increasing the weapon's range. Ionized flak is prone to friendly fire.
"Pirate Alley", also called the "Pirate Highway", is a cluster of pirate sectors in the northwest region of the universe map in X3.Specifically Farnham's Legend, Bala Gi's Joy, Olmancketslat's Treaty, Split Fire, Brennan's Triumph, Danna's Chance, Nopelios' Memorial, and Hatikvah's Faith Fleets clash there all the time, and scooping up random drops is a good source of income in the early game.
WWE Attitude - WWE 13 in reference to the Playstation game WWF Attitude.
