Top Definition
Receiving pleasure through others struggles, misfortunes, or suffering. Usually associated with the workplace, or other social settings involving co-workers or friends. Previously, there was no word in the English language for this situation, and the German word "Schadenfreude" was used as a loanword. The term is an antonym of envy.
"I love it when Jared has to clean up after us!"

"Stop being a Rixhard and help him."
