A nerdfighter is someone who fights to stop world suck and usually watches the vlogbrothers videos on youtube by: John and Hank Green. John Green described, "A nerdfighter is a person who instead of being made of, like, bones and skin and tissue, is made entirely of awesome."[1] The central goal of most nerdfighters is to decrease WorldSuck and increase awesome through various activities, such as charity work.[2]


The word nerdfighter originated in the February 1, 2007 Brotherhood 2.0 video, made by John, in a Savannah, Georgia airport. After seeing an Aero Fighters arcade game, John believed it read "nerdfighters" and remarked "That's my favorite kind of fighters."

Becoming a Nerdfighter

All that is neccesary to become a nerdfighter is to have the desire to become one, preferably along with the desires to decrease worldsuck and increase awesome. [3]
