vulcher

derivation; noun; slang
In an online video game, a player who seems to always steal kills off of another player by being the last one to damage the victim when he dies.
 
The term is derived from the word vulture, and is normally used to negatively describe a person in-game. It could possibly be characterized as a creative misspelling of vulture. Just like the vulture waits for its prey to die before feeding on them, the analogous vulcher in-game waits for his teammates to damage an enemy heavily before taking the kill.
Etymology : Derivation from vulture 'predator', from Anglo-Fr. vultur
Source : While a friend of mine was playing Team Fortress 2: "That bastard! He stole my kills again! What an annoying vulcher."
