look up any word, like ratchet:
In Japanese internet sites, Hidebu, and its variations Abeshi, Tawaba, and Uwaraba (characters from Fist of the North Star), are used as comical expressions of pain or violent death, in a similar vein to “pwned.” Though often connected to Fist of the North Star, it is not necessarily related.

The phrase is also a common feature in several Japanese blog posts. In one notable variety, the post includes several pictures of action figures fighting strung together with captions to create a narrative, with “Hidebu” and “Abeshi” as screams of pain.
