A person in charge of some group or of some function, usually a male person. A Japanese word, often mistakenly thought to be of Spanish origin. In Japanese it's a term for a small-time yakuza gangster in charge of just a few underlings, but the underworld flavor has mostly been lost as the word has been adopted into English.

A suave boss whom moves with elegance and silence. Master of their mind and captain of their fate. Undeterred from others' opinions because they stay true to theirselves and the ones close to them. Every woman should want a honcho because they're often the "man" women are looking for.

Another word for a hundred dollars. I heard some hookers talking and one of them said "I gotta have at least a honcho".

To achieve something in a quick-and-dirty manner, or with brute force, when an elegant solution was impossible.
Man, it wasn't pretty laying out the bunting for the Holi-dazzle parade, but with that deadline I just had to honcho the sucker and get 'er done.
