(adjective) Awesome, kickass, or otherwise positive. Can be used to refer to anything but is usually referring to a particular event or action. The most common usages are "epic win" or "epic failure," and some prefer to type it in all caps. Occasionally people use the phrase "Epic ___" as a stand-alone sentence or phrase, always following a story about something considered Epic.
Example 1: "He's a blackbelt in karate, so when this asshole came up to him, he totally kicked the dude's ass. You should have been there, it was fucking Epic."

Example 2: "I'm a blackbelt in karate, so this asshole came up to me and I kicked his ass. Epic fucking win."

Example 3: "That asshole from down the street got his ass kicked today."
"Really?"
"Yeah."

The most freaking overused word in the english language. It has in fact been used so much that there is really no reasonable definition for this word. Often used as a prefix to:

Fail
Win
-insert your choice of word here-
I BEAT HALO 3 IN 3 HOURS! EPIC WIN!

EPIC FAIL!

noun. Good, great.

adjective. Totally cool.

It used to refer to a very specific type of poem, like The Iliad or The Odyssey. Then came the movie version of Lord of the Rings, arguably an epic itself. The movie's popularity introduced the word to the ignorant public. Soon hack video game "journalists" were using the term as a synonym for "fantasy," which did not help preserve the original definition. After years of corruption, the word is now an even more annoying synonym for "totally cool, dude!"

The "not" of the 2000s. Something that is okay to say this year but if you say it next year will just get you looked at weird, like if you wear to go out in public with a fanny pack or wearing overalls with only one strap buckled. Used to approve of anything positively. Only momentarily, of course. Often piggybacked with "fail" as "epic fail". Another reason for other socities to despise the ineptitude of the human beings within ours.
