mo fo

noun; clipping rhyming
This is a shortening of the phrase “mother fucker” used in the sense of a person who resembles James Bond- extremely hard-core, intense, unstoppable.
 
“Bourne is such a mofo; he does whatever the hell he wants.”
Etymology : This seems to be a clipping of the first two letters of the words in mother fucker, changing the /u/ in fucker to an /o/ to create a rhyming sound. Mother fucker literally means someone who has sex with other people’s mothers but in this case has the same sense as mofo. Mother is from Old English modor "female parent", from Proto-Germanic *mothaer, from PIE *mater- 'mother', likely based on the baby-talk form *ma- with the kinship term suffix *-ter-.
