From, the incel encyclopedia
The "Chad Stride" or "Virgin vs. Chad" meme portrays his clothing as kaleidoscopic and his frame as extremely muscular, with a hyperbolic mooseknuckle

A Chad or Chad Thundercock is a hyperbolic archetype and meme popularized on an anime-themed, hikikomori, online imageboard named r9k. The archetype refers to anyone who can elicit near-universal, positive, female sexual attention at will.

The archetype chad has sex with almost anyone he wants. In terms of personality, he is either your high school bully or sometimes an all-around good guy. He is now the guy who works on Wall Street, who gets on TV regularly, or who plays for a pro-sports team.

Upon getting access to Chad, women become Chadstruck and will sexually mistreat incels and normies such as tanners if rejected by Chad.[1]

Societies will often go out of their way to help Chads reproduce, for example by setting up "sex tents" for them.

Women Flock to Him, Not the Other Way Around[edit]

Contrary to popular opinion, chad doesn’t cockblock other men. He doesn’t need to. Chad has women coming to *him*. He opens his tinder and finds dozens of matches and messages just in the last week. Chad can say nearly anything he wants to a woman on a dating app and within a few messages get her number and a place/time to be intimate.

PUA copers commonly state that you have to be confident to get women IRL. However this isn’t the case for Chad. If Chad doesn’t approach the woman who desires him, she will find a way to make her intentions known, or even approach him herself.[2]

However, despite all these benefits, chads are not treated well by women, and experience the same sadistic and passive aggressive mind/power games from women that less sexually successful men do while in relationships. In general, relationships suck just as much for chads too.


A Chad from looks basically has an 8/10 PSL rating.

Common characteristics for a Chad born from looks include:

Above 6 foot in height, large frame, broad shoulders, 0-1 on the norwood scale, hunter eyes with little to no upper eyelid exposure, positively or neutrally tilted eyes, prominent high cheekbones, thick eyebrows, a large skull, compact midface, killer long chin, defined squarish jawline, long vertical ramus, gonial angle of approx. 120 degrees, forward growth of the mandible and the maxilla, a short straight nose, an ideal philtrum to chin ratio (with the philtrum being shorter), clean exotic skin, healthy bite with white teeth, and lastly, low body fat (below 15%).[3]

Origin of word[edit]

tld;dr the origin of the term and image of Chad came from online dating experiments which revealed what women on dating apps actually respond to

In Chicago, Illinois during the 1990s, "Chad" became a derogatory slang term for young, successful white men in their 20s and early 30s. On June 1st, 2006, Urban Dictionary user Mav Himself submitted an entry for "Chad," defining him as a guy who "goes to the bar to pick up chicks." On August 9th, 2013, Urban Dictionary user Dr. James Russell submitted an entry for "Chad Thundercock," which defined the character as a "stereotypical high school/college alpha male" who is "successful with women" (shown below).

On August 10th, 2013, the Chad Thundercock Tumblr blog was launched. On January 9th, 2015, BodyBuilding Forums user oogahboogah submitted a post titled "Going on Tinder as Chad Thundercock is beyond depressing," featuring screenshots of Tinder chat sessions using a fake profile. The user was disappointed that the archetypal jock image could get away with saying extremely direct and rude things that he could not do with his real pic without getting blocked (shown below).

On March 23rd, Redditor invicticide submitted a post questioning how Chad became "the default name for alpha douchebros" to the /r/ForeverAlone subreddit, to which Redditor ian_n cited the /r9k/ board on 4chan as the origin of the meme. On April 18th, YouTuber 4chan Sound Effects uploaded a video titled "Chad Thundercock Shows You How to Ree," in which a voice over introduces himself as Chad Thundercock and proceeds to make a loud "Ree" noise.

On May 21st, Redditor JayEster submitted a post to the /r/justneckbeardthings subreddit questioning what the female counterpart to Chad Thundercock was, to which Redditor Thepaladinofchaos replied "Stacy thundercunt. Shes a varsity cheerleader with a 4.0 gpa." On July 15th, Redditor whatthefuckisreddit submitted a screenshot of a gruesome 4chan post titled "Chad and Stacy fantasy" to the /r/4chan subreddit, where it gained over 4,100 votes (92% upvoted) and 190 comments in two months.

Atomic Blackpill[edit]

Eventually the science of Tinder experiments became so advanced that incels around the globe found out that women on dating apps literally won’t even care if a dude is a child rapist, as long as he looks like a muscular jock. Various media outlets such as a popular Israeli newspaper reposted the experiments[4]. This flew in the face of decades of gynocentric indoctrination which taught men that women are less shallow than men and need to be stingier with sex than men are in order to properly evaluate men’s character. One of these experiments was called the 'Atomic Blackpill' (Shown Below)

"The Atomic Blackpill"

Many other amusing experiments have been conducted demonstrating that Chad can be a open neo-nazi, an ex-ISIS terrorist, a North Korean agent, a proud domestic violence perpetrator and use extremely abusive language (e.g., by employing harsh racial insults towards non-white women he matches with) and still have many women extremely thirsty for sex with him.[5]

Evolution of chad[edit]

Certain aspects of Chad's physical appearance, such as a highly masculine facial bone structure and overall physical strength, may also have evolved in an evolutionary arms race between men competing for women, resources, and survival, rather than being directly attractive to women.[6][7][8]

Cross-culturally, there is little evidence that women prefer masculine faces exclusively, with men's facial masculinity seemingly mostly unrelated to their overall facial attractiveness,[9] though this appears to vary by ecological and mating context. In contrast, Chad's muscular body is nearly universally attractive to women. However, women's attraction to more muscular males likely falls within a goldilocks zone, with extreme levels of muscularity (such as what can be achieved via steroid abuse) possibly being detrimental to men's sexual attractiveness.

Status of chad in the manosphere[edit]

The founder of Oofy doofy theory, "Hugh La Traviata", claims that, "chad is dead, because women only select ugly and goofy men now".

The pro-male advocate, "Pro-male Vendetta", claims that, "Chad doesn't exist", because of the high number of false sexual assault allegations against male celebrities and other men who are high status. He also says this is further shown by the domestic abuse of such celebrities and asserts that no man is treated well by women.

Lookist theorists most notably claim that chad is still alive and well.
