Someone who's entire purpose in life is to min-max out the perfect performance and win at all costs at whatever video game they're playing. Takes priority over all other considerations.

Gives the impression they don't even care or are even aware of any other aspects of the game, beyond playing it like a calculator or spreadsheet. "Try Hards" only care about the ends, not the means. For example, if that requires them to build an "I win!" character and spam one move over and over and over and over again, that's what they'll do if it gets them the almighty results of "winning."

Probably a compensation for real-life lack of fulfillment. Also results in overly defensive definitions listed on this website for 'Try Hard' by would-be gaming Try Hards.
"That Gaming Try Hard raid-leader called me a nub because I didn't use this or that ability at the exact perfect micro-second of the boss fight!!!"

"LOL that Gaming Try Hard sent me a PM during PvP and said "Git gud, scrub. I just beat you!" (But they failed to mention they use a FOTM EZ mode toon, spamming 2 moves over and over and over)

The phenomenon where a person (usually dude) who might appear somewhat athletic or muscular at a cursory glance... but upon closer inspection, you see they have no muscle whatsoever, and instead, have fat that lays in such a way that deceptively makes them look pseudo-muscular. Similar to how "skinny fat" people aren't really skinny, Fake Fat Muscle people aren't really muscular.

There are several proofs to this: 1) the person has no vascularity, or even any actual muscular development, and if they were to flex or strain or lift a weight, they still don't actually look different. Why would they? It's all just fat. There's no muscle there to flex.
2) The person doesn't actually workout. Sometimes they go to the gym, but it's a pretense. Their workout amounts to nothing. They could instead lay on the couch and they would have the same end result appearance. Fake fat muscle types are at most, weekend warriors.
3) Similar to skinny fat and ILS (imaginary lat syndrome) this person is presenting themselves dishonestly, and in keeping with that, they'll often wear either tank tops, muscle tee, or shmedium T-shirts to try and accentuate their fake fat muscles.

These pretenders shrink in the presence of real men, and usually do a subtle scurry out of the gym when the real lifters arrive, so as to not be exposed as frauds by comparison.
I thought that dude had a decent physique until I took a second glance and realized it's all fake fat muscle.

The embarrassing and nubish act of doing biceps curls, while standing in a squat rack. This is pure whitebread.

The squat rack is the only place in the gym one can specifically do squats, as the rack serves as the spot / safety.
However standing bicep curls can be done practically anywhere. Thus to do curls in the squat rack not only reveals one's own know-nothing idiocy, it takes up a station that could properly be used by a legit gym goer.

The sort of thing you'd see at Planet Fitness or your average community rec center. Done by people who get their training advice from Dr Oz.
I was going to break my PR in front skwats today, but that scrawny noob over there is hogging the equipment and doing curls in the squat rack!

People who believe, act, and promote for a higher power who's interests are actually against that very person.

That power sees that person as a "useful idiot." The powers-that-be exploit the Useful Idiot to carry out their own wants and needs. They often use the hate and fears of the useful idiot, to manipulate them into acting against their own best interests.
That tRumptard redneck rube voted to give tax cuts to the rich plutocrats! It's cute how he pretends the rich create jobs. The rich see him as a useful idiot. And tRump thinks he's trash. But they know the useful idiot can be manipulated with hatred and fear to vote against their own best interests.
