A poster on an Internet forum, (particularly 4chan) who expresses opinions which are either strongly nihilistic, ("life has no meaning," or Tyler Durden's special snowflake speech from the film Fight Club being probably the two main examples) or contain references to Hitler, Nazism, fascism, or other taboo topics which are deliberately intended to shock or offend readers.

The term "edgelord," is a noun, which came from the previous adjective, "edgy," which described the above behaviour.

Someone, especially posting on the internet, who uses shocking and nihilistic speech and opinions that they themselves may or may not actually believe to gain attention and come across as a more dangerous and unique person. Most Edgelords are teenagers trying to seem overly cool and/or over-casually apathetic.

An Edge Lord is the one kid in class that sits in the corner with ear buds in there ears. Edge lords usally wear black hoodys to cover there greasy hair. They use the long sleeves to there advantage by pulling it over there cuts. Edge Lords make lots of school shooting jokes but in reality they are to pussy to carry out the deed. Edge Lords mostly spend there free time listening to heavy metal, cutting, and occasionally vaping.
