A scrub is a more derogatory form of the slang "noob", "nub" etc. and is primarily used in video games, particularly those which are multiplayer based.

Whilst a noob is generally considered one who is new to the game, and as a result not proficient, a scrub need not necessarily be new. It may imply that the person accused is forever a noob, regardless of how much they may practice.

Someone who thinks they are the best, who believes that everyone is in love with them no matter how broke they are, no matter how many people hate them, no matter how little they have. A scrub is a guy (generally) who thinks they are amazing, they have little to no chance of waking up and seeing that the universe does not centre around them. They are generally persistent motherfuckers.

Dude lets watch scrubs!

Julie: This drug is the best one on the market. The only side effects are nausea, impotence and anal leakage.
Dr. Cox: And, I'm getting two out of three, just from having this conversation

Turk: You know, I never get chocolate cake.
Elliot: Oh, right, cause you're diabetic. Boo hoo. You know Turk, if you want sympathy, get a disease people can see

Carla: What if we have a son and he wants to dance?
Turk: He can dance if he wants to. He can leave his friends behind. Cause his friends don't dance and if they dont dance then they're no friends of mine, (music plays) (Turks goes off dancing the safety dance)โ€

The Todd: Dude, I hear they have laws that make women completely cover their bodies when they're out in public. The war in Irak. Try the war to see rack.โ€

A scrub is a now generalized term used as a synonym for a "noob" or "newb," which is someone who is bad at a video game or activity in general.

Most of the definitions here, surprisingly, have nothing to do with the actual term. The original definition is related to a person who makes a mistake in a video game, which is such a bad mistake that it is clearly wrong, yet they persist in making it. The term derives from Street Fighter II, to describe some players that were so bad that they would mash their hands across the control pad, an act known as "scrubbing," because it relates to scrubbing a car or other object with a sponge. Thus they were deemed "scrubbers," or "scrubs" for short. Over time this term expanded throughout the gaming world, and then the real world, and lost its original meaning.

A scrub is a guy that thinks he's fly
And is also known as a buster
Always talkin' about what he wants
And just sits on his broke ass
A scrub is a guy that cant get no love from me
Hanging out the passenger side
Of his best-friend's ride
Trying to holler at me
Look at that scrub thinkin he can holla at me.
