Top Definition
(n), a tougher or more intense iteration of an idea.

The term comes from video games, in which there are often harder difficulty settings (or "hard modes") than the standard gameplay, intended for players looking for a challenge.

In MMORPGs, "hard modes" are triggered versions of boss encounters that cause them to become more difficult than usual, but offer better rewards.
Siberia is the hard mode of Russia.
