Someone who frequently engages in debates, particularly online.

They are largely characterised by their ego and machismo.

A debate bro will often pressure others into debating them in a particularly obnoxious manner.

Get the Debate bro mug.
Term used by ppl who can't reason well but wanna feel like bosses, to indicate that instead of working to improve themselves, they'd rather lower the standard of discourse so they can compete.
Person 1: *makes a claim that they cannot possibly defend, and the reason they believe it is probably because of a bias *
Person 2: why do you think this?
Person 1: You are such a debate bro

Someone who has figured out how to make a living by appealing to teenage bros who couldn't tell what a sound argument looked like if it hit them flat in the face, as exemplified by the most popular entry on this page. Such youth believe that the more insults and taunts are crammed into a sentence, the more effective a refutation, especially when paired with WWE heel style self-praise and a loud, masculine voice. The movie Idiocracy inevitably comes to mind.
Debate bro fan - Brah, did you watch ToughCommieHooligan last night? He DESTROYED that liberal professor!
Educated youth - No. How did the professor lose?
- Well you know, TCH said he had a mosquito level I.Q. He also laughed very loudly every time the professor tried to respond. It was carnage!!
- Okay...

A spin off on the term ‘Frat Bro’ expect in context of academic debate. A ‘Debate Bro’ will out of their way to make sure everyone knows how smart they are at post-modern philosophy, international relations, deductive reasoning, and other obscure topics while simultaneously shaming other debaters for their lack of expertise in said areas. A ‘Debate Bro’ ruins the fun of academic debate for others and proliferates the toxicity of exclusivity, racism etc. within the space.
John “Dude, wtf you haven’t read DnG’s 1000 Plateaus? You should, you’d win so many debates with the information in it”
Jason “Dude, stfu, you went 2-5 last tournament, stop being a ‘debate bro’.

A synonym for sophist. One who argues in "bad faith".
Jimmy kept arguing that the Earth is a flat square made of cheese and used a priori axiomatic presuppositional post-rational empirical multivariate and fuzzy logic to justify his position. He must be a debate bro.
