A painful swelling, normally in the thigh, caused by a punch or quick blow. Bruising and discoloration tend to follow dead legs and leave the victim with a numb leg that is hard to walk on. Normally occurs between guys but rare instances of girls giving guys dead legs have been discovered. Also known as a Charlie Horse.
