Dude, I was downing Kingmakers at that party last night and it kept me wired until 8:30 this morning!

A king maker is someone(often female) who pumps up a person's self-esteem so much they make a monster out of them. Victims of a king maker are often egotistical and lost of all past character as product of the incident, soon after they are abandoned by their friends because of their un-attractive attitude. King Makers are often naive of their effects and are most likely in-secure themselves. Beware their dangers.
