Glossary of Common Chinese Slangs, Gaming and ACGN Terms

Hi everyone, Selutu here. No, this is not another mass release, that will be in an unknown time in the future, most likely after we got a better server and everything so our site doesn’t overload from everything.

What I’m going to present to you today is a glossary of common Chinese slangs, gaming terms and ACGN terms. It’s something I decided to create in order to show interested readers as well as translators that find it hard to understand/translate these terms.

Even though I said that I created it, it is not completely true, I definitely couldn’t do it without Frozen (from Frozensama) , he pretty much wrote (rather, rewrote) all of the ACGN terms and moe characteristics section.

I hope everyone will find this useful and don’t hesitate to give us suggestions in the comments section.

In the mean time, I shall shamelessly advertise the Very Pure and Ambiguous – The Prequel Fan Art contest.

Glossary of Common Chinese Slangs, Gaming and ACGN Terms

You can find a list of the most commonly used Chinese Slangs, Gaming Terms, ACGN (Anime, Comics/Manga, Games, Novels) Terms, and other Miscellaneous Terms used in Chinese novels.

Please be reminded that the literal translations are just what they are, “literal translation”. They are by no means the correct translations.

Japanese Slangs
Term Literal Translation Meaning
ドキュン DQN / Dokyun Pronounced “dokyun,” it is a derogatory internet slang term that spread from, a Japanese BBS. It mostly means dumbass or idiot, but it can also be used to refer to delinquents and violent, rough, uncultured, uneducated, socially inferior people. Though it used to be just 2channel slang, the term enjoys more widespread use now, and is even used on some English-language discussion boards.
Chinese Slangs
Term Literal Translation Meaning
美眉 / MM Beautiful Eyebrows The term originated from a Taiwanese tv drama, in which an actor’s accent caused his pronunciation of 妹妹 (little sister) to sound like 美眉. The term has then grown to mean a pretty girl.
恐龙(妹) Dinosaur An ugly girl/woman
蛋疼 Egg hurt It’s the feeling you get when you feel very frustrated/annoyed/really pissed off about something (just like when your balls hurt).
卖萌 Act moe I think that’s pretty self-explanatory.
屌丝 Male pubic hair The original meaning of the term would be a ‘plebeian’. However, it is not often used as a slang for losers as well.
卧槽/我操/我艹/我靠/我擦 I f̲u̲c̲k̲ (your mom) Originating from “我肏你妈”, which translates to “I f̲u̲c̲k̲ your mom”, the origin phrase essentially means “f̲u̲c̲k̲ you”. On the other hand, when used by itself it just means “f̲u̲c̲k̲”. The reason this is used is merely to prevent censorship of 我肏.
次奥 Taken the pinyin of 操 (ciao), it is another way of saying “f̲u̲c̲k̲”.
尼玛 尼玛 as the same pronunciation as 你妈 (your mom). It’s meaning is the same as the previous as being a short form of “I f̲u̲c̲k̲ your mom”. Since 你妈 is often censored, this is used instead.
你妹 Your sister Short for “我操你妹” i.e. I f̲u̲c̲k̲ your sister. It has essentially the same meaning as “f̲u̲c̲k̲ you”.
意淫/YY Although the term originated from “Dream of the Red Chamber”, it has long since lost its original meaning. The current meaning is “fantasizing”, but it often also has a sexual undertone linked to it.
跪了 Kneeled It expresses the feeling one has when they would kneel, often when admitting a person is truly powerful; or to show admiration. At the same time, it can also be a way of saying that the person is unable to express the speechlessness. 跪了is roughly the Chinese equivalent of “orz”.
毁三观 Ruin three views The 三观 (three views) refers to “world view”, “view of life” and “view of value”. 毁三观 is basically used to describe those people or situation that goes against those views.
躺枪/躺着也中枪 Laying gun / Getting shot even when lying down The phrase originated from a famous line in the movie “Fight Back to School”, where a random soldier accidentally shot towards the floor, hitting a person that was pretending to be dead on the floor. It is used to express a person’s speechlessness / helplessness when they are uninvolved/innocent/retaining a low profile already. A typical example would be three friends are talking, Friend A and Friend B are insulting each other, then all of a sudden, Friend C got insulted by Friend A out of nowhere.
土豪 It refers to those filthy rich people that don’t think about spending and doesn’t have much taste.
坑爹 Pit dad This is a term that’s very hard to actually express in English. It can be used to describe when a person/situation screws someone over. A situation -when this is used is when there is a group of people playing a team-based game, but one person just keeps screwing the team over. In that situation, the team would describe him as坑爹 (Keng Die).
高富帅 Tall Rich Handsome Rather self-explanatory, it is a term to describe a man that’s tall, rich and handsome.
白富美 White Rich Beautiful Rather self-explanatory, it is a term used to describe a woman that has a light skin tone, rich and beautiful
基友 Gay friend Although it can be used literally, as a slang word, it just describes two close male friends.
打酱油 Hitting Soy Sauce It roughly translates to “passing by” or is used as a term to describe casual players in sports, games etc.
神马 Divine horse 神马 is the slang what of saying 什么 (what)
虾米 Dried Shrimp 虾米is the slang what of saying 什么 (what), it originated from the Hokkien pronunciation什么.

特麼 / TM His Mother 特麼 has the same pronunciation as 他妈, a Chinese slang that literally means f̲u̲c̲k̲ you.
草泥马 Grass Mud Horse The Grass Mud Horse or Cǎonímǎ (草泥马) is a Chinese Internet meme widely used as a euphemism for the cursing phrase cào nǐ mā (肏你妈). It is a wordplay on the Mandarin words cào nǐ mā (肏你妈), literally, “f̲u̲c̲k̲ your mother”, and is one of the 10 mythical creatures created in a hoax article on Baidu Baike in early 2009 whose names form obscene puns. It has become an Internet chat forum cult phenomenon in China and has garnered worldwide press attention, with videos, cartoons, and merchandise of the animal (which is said to resemble the alpaca), having appeared.
撩阴腿 Basically, it means “kick the t̲e̲s̲t̲i̲c̲l̲e̲”.
弓虽女干 R̲a̲p̲e̲ The original word is 强奸, which means r̲a̲p̲e̲. It is separated into four Chinese Characters in order to avoid censorship.

Dantian are the “qi focus flow centers”, important focal points for meditative and exercise techniques such as qigong, martial arts such as t’ai chi ch’uan, and in traditional Chinese medicine.

6的不行 Top Quality 6 is slang for being 一流 or the best
装13 Flexing 装13 = 装B = 装逼 = to act like a pretentious prick
七七四十九 7749 There are many variant of this, such as 5525, 7749, 8864, and 9981, but all of them has one thing in common, the last two numbers are the multiplication of the first two. Writing out the times table is a common Chinese idiom to emphasize the last two numbers.

争夷大将军 / 征夷大将軍 Shogun The Shōgun (将軍, Japanese: [ɕoːɡɯɴ] (About this soundlisten); English: /ˈʃoʊɡʌn/ SHOH-gun) was the military dictator of Japan during most of the period spanning from 1185 to 1868. Nominally appointed by the Emperor, shōguns were usually the de facto rulers of the country, though during part of the Kamakura period shōguns were themselves figureheads. The office of shōgun was in practice hereditary, though over the course of the history of Japan several different clans held the position. Shōgun is the short form of Sei-i Taishōgun (征夷大将軍, “Commander-in-Chief of the Expeditionary Force Against the Barbarians”), a high military title from the Heian period. When Minamoto no Yoritomo gained political ascendency over Japan in 1185, the title was revived to regularize his position, making him the first shōgun in the usually understood sense.

百鬼夜行 Night Parade of One Hundred Demons Hyakki Yagyō, variation: Hyakki Yakō, (百鬼夜行, “Night Parade of One Hundred Demons”) is an idiom in Japanese folklore. Sometimes an orderly procession, other times a riot, it refers to an uncontrolled horde of countless numbers of supernatural creatures known as oni and yōkai. As a terrifying eruption of the supernatural world into our own, it is similar (though not precisely equivalent) to the concept of pandemonium in English.

In Japan the red spider lily signals the arrival of fall. Another popular Japanese name for Lycoris radiata is Manjushage (曼珠沙華, Manjusha-ge or Manjusha-ke), taken from the name of a mythical flower described in Chinese translation of the Lotus Sutra. It is called by over 1000 other local names in Japan.
豪族 Prominent Clan Gōzoku (豪族, lit. “prominent clan”) is a Japanese term used to refer to powerful and wealthy families. In historical context, it usually refers to local samurai clans with significant local land holdings. Some were almost locally independent, and held strong ties to important commoners such as wealthy merchants. Unlike the vassal samurai of the greater lords, gozōku may or may not have held court rank or served directly under a liege. They tended to be financially secure and, if under a liege, less dependent upon him for income.
绳文 Rope-patterned The Jōmon pottery (縄文土器, Jōmon doki) is a type of ancient earthenware pottery which was made during the Jōmon period in Japan. The term “Jōmon” (縄文) means “rope-patterned” in Japanese, describing the patterns that are pressed into the clay.

About Us

Re:Library is a translation and original novel hosting site founded by Silva on October 26, 2013. Previously known as Silva’s Library, the site started out as nothing more than a mere hobby site to share Silva’s favorite anime and manga.

At the year of 2015, Silva became absorbed in reading web novel and found an interest in Close Combat Mage, a web novel translated by Fernando and Taffy from Pika Translations. He was just so eager to read the next chapter that he thought he might as well translate the next chapter for himself. It was then Silva became a part of Pika Translations.

It was on July 08, 2015 that Silva decided to pick up his first solo project, the World of Immortals. At first, Silva was co-hosting that project on both Silva’s Library and Pika Translations, but after Silva’s Library had been approved by an advertising network to serve ads on the site, Silva had decided to host his project solely on Silva’s Library.

Following that, Silva started sending invitations to various translators and authors to host their work on Silva’s Library, the first one to join us was none other than Raltzero, who was translating Bu ni Mi at the time, then followed by Selutu and many others.

It was on September 21, 2016, that we had an encounter with HayateButler, who convinced us to move to a self-hosting site. It was then Silva’s Library had been renamed to Re:Library.

Re:Library had gone through its up and down since then, with most of the translators and authors going MIA in 2018. The site started gaining life again in late 2018 when Silva came back with a new project, the Demon Sword Maiden. And that was the start of Re:Library’s new legacy.

Project Gender Bender had been initiated in late July of 2019, and since then, new Gender Bender webnovels were steadily added to the shelves of Re:Library, starting with Dragon Princess, Female Knight & Dark Elf, and more to come.
