Leeroy Jenkins is a World of Warcraft character who became famous for his reckless and disastrous charge into battle. In a 2005 video, Jenkins’ character charges into a group of powerful enemies, shouting “LEEEEEROY JEEEEENKINS!” before being quickly killed. The video quickly went viral and Jenkins became an internet meme.
The term “Leeroy Jenkins” is now used to describe someone who makes a reckless or foolish decision, often with disastrous consequences. It is also used as a verb, meaning to charge into a situation without thinking.
