Simple-mindedly and transparently trying to appear tough or 'cool', for the sake of being provocative and/or offensive.

Usually, this is done to disguise the fact that otherwise, that person or thing is not at all - intellectually or otherwise - provocative.
The main protagonist of the video game DmC: Devil May Cry is a good example of an edgy character. Instead of allowing himself to be perceived as cool or tough by others through doing impressive things, he needs to resort to heavy cursing and macho posturing. In doing so, it becomes clear to the viewer that the character itself is probably trying desperately to seem cooler than they are.

In stark contrast, the protagonist of previous games in the series was considered cool because of his wit, carefree attitude, and refusal to be intimidated. If he too attempted to make himself look cool, at least those attempts were cloaked better, and didn't try to be overtly provocative.

A word that teenage internet trolls use to describe anyone that has more personality than a shovel. This includes anyone who likes any kind of music, movies, video games, books, art, fashion, as well as anyone who DOESN'T accuse others of being "edgy." Typically, the people who use this term have low IQs, and do not know the actual two definitions of the word. They use it to insult anyone who is not them, not realizing that one of the definitions is a compliment, and the other simply means "nervous."
"wow, dat bitch thinks she soooooo edgy cuz she lieks 2 watch horror movies even tho an overwhelming amount of peeps of all ages also like horror movies."

"u think ur so edgy cuz you like 2 draw."

"u were professionally diagnosed with schizophrenia? wow, u must think ur so edgy."

2. The resulting cry from said look-out, announcing that teachers/police/law-abiding citizens are approaching.
