A person or object doing something that is seen as futile and repetitive, usually taking a long time to finally get the satisfaction of completion. The term is in reference to the Greek myth of Sisyphus, who is punished by being forced to roll a boulder up a mountain, only for the boulder to fall back once nearing the top.
A: "I just finished my work and then my boss gave me more to do."

being a 9-5 wageslave. doing the same meaningless thing every single day, just to still be kicked out of your apartment because your boss decided to decrease the wage and the landlord decided to increase the rent. then the boulder rolls back downhill and you start again from the bottom searching for a job working a 9-5 and getting kicked out because your boss decided to decrease the wage and the landlord decided to increase the rent.

Bigger Badder and Radder version of bitch baby Minos Prime. Instead of Minos's charge up sequence where he has to be birthed from his flesh prison, Sisyphus kills his flesh prison (called the flesh panopticon) from the inside. bro is just built different... oh yeah, also instead of Minos's speech which was something like "thanks for freeing me, imma beat the shit outta you." was nice compared to Sissy's speech of (Imma beat the shit outta you, and god himself!" still got beat by a gro-pro with legs, skill issue imo...
(also this is a bit off topic but where are the souls going? does V1 just have some spare black soul gems in his inventory for prime souls? like are they going to extra hell? if we keep diving further are we going to reach that extra hell and meet them both? Maybe they combined into a combined Prime soul named "Sisyphos Prime" or something...)

From "Back to the Future" to describe the fate of Biff Tannen, marked by his repeated, failed attempts and subsequent punishment for his evil transgressions, muchly similar to Donald Trump.
We watched "Back to the Future" so many times, only to mock The Sisyphus of Biff.
