*** Pyrosharks: Pyros using the Neon Annihilator, which crits wet enemies, to lurk in bodies of water and surprise foes.



*** It may or may not be coincidence that in RealLife there's a missile launcher that fire miniature nukes known as the Davy Crocket.

** Trolldier: A Soldier using the Rocket Jumper (no damage but no self damage for {{Rocket Jump}}s), Mantreads (reduced knockback from damaging sources and a GoombaStomp), 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.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''
** Drood, Droodad, dr00d, DURID - Any Druid.
*** 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 could do a lot of burst damage but burned up mana doing so. Less often, Lazer Chicken or Nuklear Rooster. [=OOMkin=] has fallen into disuse since Wrath as they do not have mana issues in normal play.
*** 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).
** 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. Given new impetus in ''Legion'' when it was revealed the hidden skin for their artifact can be bought from a vendor right after acquiring it. (Most hidden skins require a great deal of work and/or luck to acquire.)
*** 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 [[strike:reasonably desirable or powerful]] item as [[MemeticMutation "hunter gear"]], even if hunters are incapable of equipping the item, or if [[UpToEleven 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/fel 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.
*** Summoning 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.
** Space Cow, Space Goat, Space Pony, Squidcow, Squidgoat, Squidhead, Big Blue, Blueberry, Smurf - Draenei. Named so because they have hooves, facial tendrils ([[BizarreSexualDimorphism well the males anyway, those of the females are behind the ears]]), blue skin, and arrived on Azeroth by means of [[{{Magitek}} an interdimensional vessel]]. (The list of nicknames is actually ''much'' longer than that, and not all of them are polite.)
*** Said facial tendrils are sometimes called "chintacles".
*** To add to the confusion, "space goat" is also used to mean "talbuk" (an Outland beast resembling an alien ibex) and "blueberry" can also mean "voidwalker."
** Nelfs/Belfs - [[OurElvesAreBetter Night Elves/Blood Elves]].
** Pally - Any Paladin. Belfadin refers specifically to Blood Elf Paladins. Also "Gayladin" for [[CampGay Male Blood Elves]] and "Beefadin" for Tauren paladins.
** Tankadin/Protadin - Paladins that focus on the Protection talent tree. Healadin for healing pallies, and Retadin (or the pejorative Retardin) for damage-per-second paladins (a spec that at least until Cataclysm had a bad reputation for requiring little skill to play). 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. May still be used for players doing damage in Holy spec.
*** Paladins have been given [[MemeticMutation many nicknames]]; some pointless, other less so; involving '-adin'. This probably started from VideoGame/{{Diablo}} higher on the list.
*** Wings and Ret bull for Avenging Wrath, a paladin signature for burst damage and healing. It shows as a pair of glowing wings, and has been the butt of no end of jokes.
*** Early in the game, the talent Reckoning became famous when a player showed it could be exploited to solo-kill raid bosses. This became known as the 'Reckoning Bomb', and was referenced by the game in a quest in Wrath.
** 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 "Spanky", coming 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).
** Rouge - A common misspelling of "rogue;" may be used ironically. [[MemeticMutation It should be noted that rouges are]] [[IncrediblyLamePun overpowdered.]]
** Thongbear - Furbolgs in general, as they are anthropomorphic bears. In thongs.
*** Furbies has often been used, sometimes. (Bloodscalp)
*** And Fuzzbutts.
** 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!"
** Cow, Moo-Cow, Bull - Tauren, for [[ALoadOfBull obvious reasons]].
*** 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.
*** 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 [[PlayerVersusPlayer 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 is a JerkassWoobie.
** King Grunty, Grunty [=McGruntypants=] - King Varian Wrynn, named largely for his Jerkass characterization.
*** Also "[[Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian Varian the Barbarian]]," "King Goku" (for his {{Animesque}} hairdo), "[[Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian Conan]] the [[{{Animesque}} Weaboo]]," "[[LanternJawOfJustice King Chin]]," and "Fighty [=McChin=]."
*** "Varian Chinn/Chynn" is another popular variant.
** Manduin - King Anduin Wrynn after Varian's death and Anduin took a level in badass in ''Legion''.
** Crotchbumtits - Valeera Sanguinar from the comic, due to the artist's tendency to... [[{{Fanservice}} 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 OvershadowedByAwesome 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 - [[TheScrappy 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 {{wangst}}y death knight roleplayer.
** Lavaman - [[spoiler: Highlord Bolvar Fordragon]] after getting seriously messed up from both [[spoiler: 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.)
** Garrosh Hecksqueak, Durrosh Failscream, Garrosh Hecksqueal, Garrosh Heckwhimper, Derposh Hurrscream, Squeal: [[CreatorsPet Garrosh]] [[JerkAss Hellscream]].
** Monessa: A [[CuteMonsterGirl 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.
** Heffalump, Shoopuf: The draenei elekk mounts, after (respectively) the beasts from Franchise/WinnieThePooh and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''.
** Lapdogen: Female worgen, due to their alleged greater resemblance to Chihuahuas or some other toy breed than wolves.
** Chinwing, Deathchin: nickname given to the new BigBad, Deathwing, [[LanternJawOfJustice for obvious reasons.]]
** WesternAnimation/{{Captain Planet|AndThePlaneteers}}: The Elementium Monstrosity, a raid boss in Bastion of Twilight that is the fusion of the elemental Ascendant Lords [[MakingASplash Felu]][[AnIcePerson dius]], [[KillItWithFire Ignacious]], [[DishingOutDirt Terrastra]] and [[BlowYouAway Ar]][[ShockAndAwe ion]], a combination of all the elements that made up Captain Planet (except [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway he]][[HeartIsAnAwesomePower art]]).
** 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.
** Wrath Baby: Derisive term used by more experienced players on those who joined during [[ItsEasySoItSucks Wrath of the Lich King]], and who feel that [[SuffersNewbiesPoorly such players are not prepared for difficult content]].
** The high-level Priest spell [[http://www.wowhead.com/spell=73325 "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, LoF/LG pulls a ''friendly player'' towards you at high speeds.)
** Lord Random- Lord Rhyolith, a boss in the Firelands, due to [[LuckBasedMission the chance of success being largely determined by where the volcanoes spawn]], as making him stomp on them reduces his armor, but leaving them up increases the damage the raid takes.
*** "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.
** Green Jesus, Thrally Sue, Super Jesus, Orc Jesus - Derogatory names for Thrall since his [[CreatorsPet sudden importance in Cataclysm]].
** [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} [=PokéWoW=]]] - The Pet Battle minigame planned for inclusion in the ''Mists of Pandaria'' expansion.
*** VideoGame/{{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 [[WarmUpBoss 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.
** Fistweaver/Fistweaving: The healing specialization of the Monk class is called "Mistweaver". There are two ways to heal allies as a Mistweaver: simply casting healing spells like a conventional WhiteMage/ [[TheMedic medic]], or smacking the enemy with your fists and feet and letting the passive "Eminence" effect (half of all damage you do automatically heals an ally within 20 yards) do the healing for you. This second style is humorously called "fistweaving".
** Slutmog: A {{Stripperiffic}} set of armor used for transmog purposes. Bloodscale plate and Black Mageweave are particularly popular.
** Dadgar: Khadgar on the Broken Shore uses almost nothing but [[IncrediblyLamePun Dad Jokes]] whenever players complete a world quest.
** Fat Owl: A derogatory name for the new druid flight form which resembles an overweight owl.
*** Wilford Brimley: An alternative to the above, based on [[http://i.imgur.com/EoQ1JJ8.png a supposed resemblance]].
** Knaifu and Baeblade: [[TalkingWeapon Xal'atath]], [[EvilWeapon Blade of the Black Empire]], the Shadow Priest artifact weapon. Her dialogue is [[EvilIsSexy full of uncomfortable innuendo]].
** Dave: The ox summoned by the monk talent ability "Invoke Niuzao, the Black Ox." The pet is in fact named "Niuzao," and is supposed to be an effigy of the August Celestial of the same name, but that name is kind of hard to remember or pronounce (at least for English speakers), so "Dave" took over. The origin of the name isn't clear, but it may originate from the "PETA" episode of ''Series/PennAndTellerBullshit'' that featured a bull named Dave in the intro.
** Leggo: Legendary items, primarily ones introduced in ''Legion''.
