look up any word, like hipster:
The single most annoying type of poser. %30 are poor white trash with supposed "dye jobs" that are probably the product of them coloring their hair with magic marker. They are also too poor to afford the overpriced ugly chain linked pants from Hot Topic so they usually wear goodwill jeans dyed black with some shitty band (slipknot, korn, ICP, Mandon) t shirt that is 2 sizes too big. Another %60 are spoiled suburban kids who think their lives suck even though mommy and daddy buy them everything they want. Usually sport better, but still shitty dye jobs because mommy and daddy pay for it to be done at the JC Penny salon at the mall. They buy extremely overpriced clothing from Hot Topic, but still shop at Goodwill, becuase goths are supposed to be poor. The other %10 have no specific social class, but still carry most of the previously stated characteristics.

All mallgoths whine about their 'shitty' lives. If anyone is mean to them about anything they automatically scream "DON'T HATE ME BECAUSE I'M GAWTHYCKCKC!!!! I'M NOT A SOUP CAN!" but will immediately turn around and make fun of a groups of girls for wearing American Eagle clothes, which makes them 'preps'. If a mallgoth is actually harassed for being 'gothic' they suddenly start crying because they are too pussy to really take the criticism.

Mallgoths will also come up with stupid meaningless nicknames for each other because they think it's cool.
These nicknames often change daily and a log must be kept to ensure currency. IE. Skittles, Sprinkles, Squeegy, Skippy, Muffin, Kitty, Pancake, Cupcake....ect.
Most are often considered to be 'ironic' because everyone knows that mallgoth aren't cute so it's clever to give them cutesy nicknames with no meaning behind it.

Mallgoths also listen to pop music or mainstream emo rock and assume it's goth and metal.

Faking mental illness and sexual orientation is often very common among mallgoths.
Mall goth: LAWLZ New Hot Topic pants? Cool! Come help me color my hair with this blue Crayola marker!

Mall goth: Hey KittyCakeSprinklePantsFace! Lets go take out meds and then go lesbian all over each other! We're so mallgoth we're goth!

Mall goth: OMGZ?!!! Did you just call me GAWTH? I'm not a soup can! Don't label me you stupid PREP!

Did you see that mallgoth swallowing Smarties in front of Hot Topic saying they were Anti-Psychotic drugs?

People, generally between the ages of 13 and 17, that think they are uber cool because they shop exclusivly at Hot Topic. Run around the mall in black jnco's, band shirts, bad make-up, and even worse homemade peircings. Truely believe that they are goth as fuck. See also- "poser"

These pricks hang outside of Hot Topic. Waiting for it to open so they can spend more of Mommy's and Daddy's money. They can be seen walking around the mall (obviously), looking down at the ground faking depression. sporting bad ICP make-up and wearing a Slipknot shirt. Laughing at Abercrombie, Cause obviously laughing and pointing at a clothing store is SOOO hardcore and rebellious. Age group for this abomination of a subculture is usually 12-15. Usually after 15 they grow up and realise how stupid they looked. But some people never grow up.
Mallgoth sarah: I HATE LIFE!! ::crying in the corner of her room::
Mother: C'mon dear, I'll give you money to spend at Hot Topic
Mother: But we always bought you everything you wanted. a Laptop, the pony you picked out, your stereo, you get a 100$ a week allowance..

Yuppy teens (or real stupid adults) that try too hard to look unique at the mall. But fail miserably since their mallgoth culture is manufactured as the alternative culture for those who act cynnical towards rap and pop, spawning a legion of pale faced losers and making Hot Topic rich.

Ironically Marilyn Manson, their God, is a marketed popstar as well.

Mallgoths lack knowledge about tr00 black metal and real goths, who were nomads during ancient times. They think you just have to listen to Marilyn Manson and shop at Hot Topic to be "unique" and "depressed".

At the mall (which they practically live in), they complain about everything, even about how commercial the mall is.
The mallgoth was depressed that his mommy didn't buy him a new over priced trench coat at Hot Topic so he locked himself up in his black room and listened to Marilyn Manson all day.

A person (usually a teenager,) who tries to follow with the new pseudo-goth trends (usually the ones they pick up at the mall) and try to show it off like it's some sort of uber-fucking evil religion.
Hot Topic is the mallgoth's place of worship. I don't recommend going there on weekends when schools out.

An individual calling themself "goth"/"gothic" that ,in actuality, is not involved in the subculture.
They listen to overhyped nu-metal/emo bands that they like for the simple fact that they believe it will make them 'cool',or more 'gothic'.
Usually between the ages of 12-17, they have a very blatant fashion sense; commonly wearing baggy, black pants with chains draped from them, spiked wristbands/collars, beanies, and especially Slipknot, HIM, or Korn tees.
Their chief source of fashion is Hot Topic (owned by Abercrombie & Fitch)
Some will don a depressed visage, never smile or speak, and others will don a moody, angry tone.
None of these 'goths' are generally 'gothic' at all. None of these people understand the origins, roots, or influences of the subculture, nor would they likely to be interested in any of its true aspects.
"You're indefinitely not involved in the gothic subculture; you would appear to be a mall goth."
"My friend only listens to HIM and Slipknot, and pretends to be depressed all the time; he's a mall goth."

Trendy kids who believe that they are "goths" when they have no understanding of the scene. Typically have baggy jeans, black dyed hair and trendy band t-shirts. Often associate their knowledge of HIM (who are a good band nonetheless) with connection to underground, when they have no real knowledge of real gothic music. While these people are often worthless as human beings, they can often be hot, and easily persuaded to do whatever you want them to for attention, particularly if they think you are "evil". They are also fun to scare the shit out of if you have an understand of real goth/black metal culture.
I have personally scared a mallgoth into a preppy by showing them a Countess album.
