What Does E-Boy Mean?

E-Boy means "Electronic Boy."

E-boy (or "e boy" or "eboy") is a term that originated on social media platforms, particularly on TikTok and Twitch, to describe a certain type of online persona. E-boys are often characterized by their alternative fashion choices, which typically include oversized or tight-fitting clothes, chains, beanies, and dark-colored clothing. They may also have dyed hair, piercings, and tattoos.

E-boys are often associated with certain music genres, such as emo, punk, and rap, and are known for their love of gaming, anime, and other aspects of internet culture. They may use social media platforms to share their music, art, or gaming streams.

The term e-boy has taken on a wide range of meanings, and some people may use it to refer to anyone who adopts this style or persona, while others may use it in a derogatory way to describe someone who they perceive as seeking attention or being fake online. However, the term is not necessarily negative and that there is a diverse range of people who identify as e-boys, each with their own unique personality and interests.
