noun.

1. an excessive amount.

2. A lot.

This word is primarily used with great imprecision by inarticulate, pretentious college undergraduates who wish to express no more than "a lot," but want to do it with as many syllables and as annoyingly as possible.
Unbearable undergraduate#1: I just drank a plethora of coffee so I can study for the test today.
Unbearable Undergraduate#2: Dude, me too. I hope there's not a plethora of questions.

a superabundance. Many.
In the three amigos the bad dood asks the other dood if he has a "plethora" of pinatas and then gets mad that the bad dood #2 says yes when he doesn't know what a plethora is. So I have written a definition for idiot bad dood #2, even though he died, and even though he's a fake character. fook you.
