look up any word, like pussy:
I see a lot of definitions for "Scrub" but not many are right. Sure everyone has heard that song "I don't want no scrub, a scrub is a guy that cant get no love from me, hangin on the passenger side of his best friends ride, tryin to holla at me, etc etc." However this isn't an accurate description. A scrub refers to people who have a combination of these characteristics: Poor, cheap or ghetto clothes, little friends, not with an "in" crowd, grungy, grimy, dirty, ugly (in a lot of cases), has no job or car (also many cases), at the bottom of the food chain, uses drugs (also very common), often hanging out in the streets, criminalistic personality (often), a loser, hangs out with shady people, etc. Now I've seen many scrubs of all shapes, sizes, and colors but most of them have been white (not trying to be racist or stereo-typical at all but there's sometruth in it, i myself am white.) There's plenty more qualities but to put it in simple terms without having to list all the traits, scrubs are human rats. It's not a bad thing though schouldn't be viewed as bad but scrubs are most commonly at the bottom of the food chain aside from underground scenes, criminal scenes, large cities, etc. This is what gives the scrub a bad name. If this offends anybody know this though, I myself am a scrub and I'm damn proud to be one. Why? one may ask? Because being a scrub doesn't mean you're not cool or aren't good looking or even dirty and poor etc. Being a scrub just means you know that you're one of socities' many rats and not meaning a snitch, that just lives a different lifestyle that has been given a name. That's all. That's all the knowledge ya need to know to understand what being a scrub means.

A derogatory term for males losers with no direction in life, used in the chorus of a 1990s Top 20 hit song.

Ritalin-junkie "gamers" who were probably born in the 90s use it in place of "noob" without realizing how it makes them sound like a valley girl. Because they're too young to remember valley girls.

No one with a life uses either term, except in jest.

As described by David Sirlin in his e-book "Playing to Win"

A person who plays a competitive game with a personal set of rules that the designers game and the tournament community don't recognize. Usually these rules prevent the scrub from having to put forth the effort to to learn to beat tactics that are above his skill level in a game.

Scrubs will feel that those that don't follow their personal rule-sets as if they were cheating, and complain incessantly attempting to peer-pressure others into following their personal rules for the game.

Scrubs can be recognized by the cry of "That's cheap!" in most player vs. player, competitive video games.
Playing Street Fighter:
Scrub: "You just threw me, that's cheap as hell!"

Competitive player: "Stop being a scrub and learn how to tech throws..."

Playing a Trading Card Game:
Scrub: "Using deck lists off of the internet is unoriginal, and takes no skill since all of the cards are expensive..."

Competitive player: "Whatever, do you want to go best out of 6 now that I've beaten you three times in a row?"

A scrub is a more derogatory form of the slang "noob", "nub" etc. and is primarily used in video games, particularly those which are multiplayer based.

Whilst a noob is generally considered one who is new to the game, and as a result not proficient, a scrub need not necessarily be new. It may imply that the person accused is forever a noob, regardless of how much they may practice.
