A large, heavy object dropped from a ship to prevent it from floating away. However, using anchors in the way they are intended to be used is just plain boring. Anchors are much more entertaining if they are dropped from the sky onto the head of someone you hate or generally dislike. In this sense, anchors are closely related to anvils and 16-ton weights. Though less common than its relatives, the anchor is favored by sadists for its broad, dull blade, which creates a spectacle that is generally much more gory than its broad-bottomed alternatives, which are known for creating simple splats or accordion effects.
Edgar hated John Doe. Edgar hated John Doe so much that dropping an anvil or weight on his head simply wouldn't suffice. So, Edgar dropped an anchor on John Doe. As a result, John Doe was splattered AND cleaved messily in half.

The final person on a team to flip in any given round of flip cup. The anchor is often a clutch position where the player must make up for the team's slack. Other times the anchor has enough time to show off with a flip under the leg or behind the back, or the always impressive one and a half.
We were about to lose the match, but Flynn was anchor and made a clutch one-flip for the game winner.

Brett was being a dick as anchor and decided to flip behind the back since we were so far ahead.
