Cool, in a rugged wrong-side-of-the-tracks way. Comes from the S.E. Hinton novel The Outsiders. Oppose preppie, and differs significantly from tough.
You ain't tuff, and you never will be, ya preppie!

Tuff has the same meaning as 'tough.' However the word is spelt out t-u-f-f to emphasise how tough (hard, rough, strong, badass) something is.

Rebekah: "wow I love these shoes, they are so tough, I love that style. "
Camille: "No, they are TUFF, T-U-F-F, not just ordinary tough."

anyone who "dances" in the hardcore pit that can roundhouse at least one kid in the face, come up with a new move that integrates some type of "gangster" move, or wears camouflage pants. it's a spin-off from being scene or hardcore or metal. Also includes: size 2 plugs or below, nose ring, snake bites, black X's on hands, black sweater either by Metal Mulisha or supporting friend's band, in a hardcore band, a claim of having a pair of brass knuckles at home, military cap (preferably in camouflage print also), and is a member of the local StraightxEdge troop. One, many or all can apply for you to be considered "tuff". or xTUFFx.
Tuff Kid #1: Aw! Did you see those kids with their bangs and all that crap in their hair??
Tuff Kid #2: Yeah! And their tight girl pants!
Tuff Kid #1: Man! We should TOTALLY kick their ass!
Tuff Kid #2: Allright man! Next time *insert hardcore band name here... example: As Blood Runs Black* plays a breakdown, we'll two step all over them and completely anihilate them!
Tuff Kid #1: YEAH!
Tuff Kid #2: Hey but dude, are my camouflage pants the right hue of green tonight? I mean, they're new and I just didn't know...
Tuff Kid #1: Aw bro, they're dank man. Don't even worry about it.
Tuff Kid #2: Thanks man, thanks. I got your back anytime someone wants to mess with you.
Tuff Kid #1: Awesome bro! Hey, how's your girlfriend?
Tuff Kid #2: She's growing out her bangs but she cut the back shorter again. She's so hot. I wish I could screw her but I'm StraightxEdge...
