An intimidating word you use when you want to shake down or scare someone who actually isn't really a friend.
"Call it. Friendo." - A remorseless hitman to a simple store-owner in Texas, from the film "No Country for Old Men." He wants him to call the coin he just flipped. If the store-owner calls it wrong, the hitman will kill him. If he calls it right, he'll let him live. A real friend would just let the guy live regardless.

an example of tough-talk. Adding an "O" onto the end of a name is a way to further familiarize that person, like Jacko or Danno; the same goes in Spanish by adding "-ito" to the end of names- Pablito, Pappito, etc. however, because the word being used here is "friend", the resultant "friendo" is intended as sarcasm. as in the stylistic flim "No Country..", which popularized it, the antogonist using it clearly has no concern for his subject, evidenced by the fact that on a whim, (a coin-toss), he could instantly kill his muse. Similarly, using the word bucko, buddy, or pal while addressing someone can imply a slight threat to them, given the context. Clint Eastwood was a master in this camp.
Mind lowering your music there, friendo, it's getting a bit unnerving. (Implying) If you don't, I may have to do it for you.

See related term frienda

A friend of the male gender. The English language had previously made it too easy for men to make their girlfriend or whatever girl they were chasing at the time jealous by telling her he's "out with a friend". Back then, for the next several hours after receiving that "with a friend" text from him, her mind would go from convincing herself that the friend is a dude from his gym, to thinking that this "friend" is a 5'9" bikini model named Natash with insane legs who invited herself to his apartment. And back and forth between those thoughts. In reality, it was his childhood friend, Brian, that he was with, studying, but he knew what he was doing when he said to her "a friend" just to make himself cooler in her mind as she would for sure imagine this "friend" to be a woman and at least an 8. And he knew she wouldn't ask the sex of this friend, or she would appear to be a jealous psycho. And she is still trying to play it cool.
Women should demand that men clarify frienda or friendo so that they don't have this easy "with a friend" method of instilling jealousy into women's minds.

Example 2:

Girl: where are you?

Boy: I'm home waiting for a friend to come by to get something from me.

Girl: (imagining friend means some slut and something means sex). "What! Who is this bitch"
Boy: no, it's a friendo he's picking up some tickets from me.

Girl: oh! you should've said so to begin with! If only men would use friendo instead of he neutral "friend", it would save us from hours of looking through your Facebook friends list to see which of these bitches you may be with...
