1. A person who tries hard to impress or tries to be something they are not.

2. What somebody would say to anybody who does a little better than them while playing an online game. The person who calls them a "try hard" probably can't handle getting killed or not getting the first kill of the game so they use this as an insult to feel better.
"Wow look at Nick with his shutter shades, what a try hard!"

imcoollol69: "WOW just because you got the first two kills doesn't make you cool, TRY HARD!"
neoxxy: "Getting two kills doesn't mean shit. Can't handle it then don't play."

noun. "tryhard"

Used as an insult in online gaming to describe a player who attempts to use strategy, tactics, maneuvers, plays, etc. well beyond their own skill level (adj. "trying hard"). These players will often watch pro gaming streams and YouTube Let's Plays and attempt to copycat the person playing despite not having enough skill or technical prowess to be able to do so effectively.

Tryhards are not to be confused with bad players. The primary distinction is that tryhards will respond negatively to gameplay suggestions or criticism, and will frequently lash out against anybody who attempts to stray outside the established metagame.
Player 1: "I can't believe you picked that guy! He's a shit-tier hero! You suck!"
Player 2: "Calm down, I picked this guy because I like playing him. You should focus more on the game and less on me."
Player 1: "You're just a noob, lol. Everybody knows that pro players never pick that hero. Learn to play."
Player 2: "You're doing terrible this game, you fucking tryhard. You're the one who needs to learn to play!"

When somebody wants too much.
It can be in-game (LoL) or in real life.
There are many degrees of Try-Hardness.
Damn, this girl is a real Try-Hard, she wants Jonathan's dick that much.

A typical, so called Try-Hard, is somebody who thinks is realy good at a game that is being played, but in reality this person is most-likely the worst player (of the team), even though he\she is attempting to be the best and is putting the most effort into the game...
Basketball might be a good example for a Try Hard, this person makes a 3 pointer once in a while, but in general he\she is awfully bad\sucks at the game !

A person who trys their nuts off. Especially when you think they are only winning only because they are putting too much effort into something.

Often declared by hypocrites during long winded tantrums while playing video games such as CoD. They call out other people when they are in fact trying too hard and still losing.
Person 1: "Do you know Justin Earl?"
Person 2: "Yeah, I played MW2 with him last week. He's such a try-hard!"
