look up any word, like fleek:
The guy in your office who fantasizes that he is Tom Cruise in Top Gun. Having already watched the movie 500+ times, he continues to watch it daily using Netflix on his Iphone, while pretending that he is hard at work on his next project. He will vehemently deny his obsession with fighter pilots and flight suits, but wears mirrored "pilot" sunglasses, claiming that they are still in fashion. He constantly hums the tune to "Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins, but deep in his heart, knows he will never fly.
Employee #1: "Hey, is the new guy Scott a fighter pilot? Why is he wearing that flight suit in the office?"

Employee #2: "No way. He's never even been on a plane. He's just a Maverick."

A man/boy that is a complete player/hustler
They think themselves completely awesome and unbreakable hard nuts and total studs.

Leader of a large paintball organization that goes against the grain, promoting non mainstream styles of play. Players use pump action, or stock class paintball markers that require re-cocking for each shot. Members of this organization, sometimes called "Mavericks" are under gunned and use woodsman skills, tactics, and strategy to overcome opponents with superior firepower. They often upset other paintball players because they accomplish more with one or two paintballs than what takes others 100's. Maverick is an ego destroyer and is often under estimated.
"Yo we was shooting ropes down the snake at this Maverick and this other Maverick pops up from nowhere and gogs me with one shot"

"watch out for that Maverick on the other team, hes some kind of sniper or something"

A maverick is a wingman who is good at what they do but most of the time they hook their friend up with a guy or girl that the person does not want to hook up with.
If James tries to hook up John and a girl he does not like, James is a Maverick

n. A shower taken at a girls place who you are about to date, just met, or don't know very well.

Taken from Top Gun where Cruise asks to use the shower at; call sign = Charlie's place.
Dude 1 - "Good game bro. Dude, aren't you supposed to go out on a date with what's her face tonight?"

Dude 2 - "Shit! Looks like I'll be pulling a maverick."
