A fan (human) who devoted himself to a particulair brand/series, and hardly questions whether it was the best choice. It usually points at a fanboy favoring a certain gaming comsole like the Nintendo Wii and Xbox360 over the opposing brand, yet also reffers to otaku-like people who favor a certain anime series like Dragonball Z and
Yu-gi-oh, or Comic book brands like Archie and Marvel. Many other kinds of fanboyism excist, but these are the most common ones.

Fanboys have the reputation to hardly have a social life, run low on friends outside Massive Multiplayer, to take their fanboyism quite seriously, and to be the cause of flame wars on internet forums. Although this is quite stereotyphical, it's not entirly incorrect. Fanboys take it as a personal offense when someone (usually an opposing fanboy) ditches the other's favourite brand/comic/console/etc.. Whether he reacts or not is for the fanboy to decide.

Despite their reputation, fanboys are proud to be one, and it will take quite some dissapointment from the brand/system/anime/etc. to get the fanboyism out of his head. Not there is need to, since they prefer not to bother anyone, so they won't be bothered while feeding their obsession.
'You don't like Zelda? I take it you are a Halo fanboy?'
'Indeed, and at least Halo doesn't use the same story/characters time after time again. Face it, Nintendo is dying!'
'It's not, and Halo is just mindless shooting! At least Nintendo is trying something new, but Microsofties like you can't appreciate taste!'
'You mean waggling some TV-remote is cool? Must be hard to be you'
etc.

1. One who is overobsessed with a particular game, movie series, or anime, to the point of calling anyone who says otherwise about said franchise inferior.
2. See Sega Slayer.
3. See sonyroolz.
Those Nintendo fanboys won't shut the fuck up about how Sega and Sony's CEO's should suck each other's penises.

One who is obsessed with something and thinks people who don't like it are inferior.
That stupid Final Fantasy 7 fanboy stabbed me in the balls today for liking Final Fantasy X better.

A person who is very, very different than a normal fan. A fanboy is someone who has a disturbing obsession with a medium and WILL start verbal world war one if you attempt to point out a glaring flaw of their wonderful, precious,'1337', perfect thing that is SUPERIOR to your preference. Do not try to argue with one, you are only inciting an unwinnable game.
Fanboy: OMG OMG X is 1337!!1!!!111 ur so dumb u dum ugy faggottard fanboy!!11!

Fan of another medium: Actually, X has an extremely cliched plot and dull, invincible protagonists. Really, how many times in the history of movies has-

Fanboy: OMG UR SCH A-

*Fanboy drops several dozen f-bombs on Fan-of-another-medumland. This continues until Fanboy vomits on himself in pure, unadulterated rage.*

Anyone that says they are a fanboy in a sentence, or claims that he/she is annoyed with a board topic being created for the 200th time is a fanboy.
"Being annoyed with the fact that this is at least the 200th time this topic has been made hardly makes me a fanboy."

What most (not all) FFVII fans are.
Fanboy: FFVII is da shit! Sephiroth is the best villain!
Me: What did he do to be so good?
Fanboy: He killed Aeris and he destroyed Cloud's hometown!!
Me: So that makes him the best villain?
Fanboy: yes!
Me: Well, Kefka destroyed 3 villages, killed hundreads of people, almost entirely destroyed the world. And you're saying Sephy is the best?
Fanboy: Shut up!
