A person who takes actions for himself and not for others. He chooses to trust himself, have few friends, be self-independent, and prefers not to believe in faith, family, money, society, and popular culture. He highly values honor, merit, integrity, intelligence, and self-righteousness. He is not afraid to take risks, become hypocritical to his own self, make "the ends justify the means", betray his own people and nations, and usually has nothing to lose. Also prefers to associate himself with words like radical, renegade, and revolution.

See radical.

See renegade.

See revolution.
Me: Don't get me wrong here, I'll go out there and fight for my "dear little nation", but be rest assured that I will forever be a mercenary than a patriot.

A 'mercenary' is a person who takes part in an armed conflict, who is not a national or a party to the conflict and is motivated to take part in the hostilities by the desire for private gain. The term 'mercenary' is also used to describe the army itself.

The mercenary is a professional wrrior, who is often hired as a skilled defender or fighter. Mercenaries go out to the highest bidder, and lack any sense of honor, but they are very skilled at fighting, often relying upon their cache of dirty tricks to defeat an opponent. Mercenaries are not very trustworthy, and often will switch alliances in the midst of a battle.
Mercenaries swept across the land, only to be rehired by those once their enemies.

Dude 1: Heard you asked Trina out last week.

Dude2: Yeah, asked me if I owned my own home. I said "No", she said "wrong answer", and that I was "too poor".

Dude1: Whoa! That's harsh.

Dude2: Yeah, that bitch is a total mercenary. Thinks her pussy's made of gold.
