The world has shrunk drastically in this modern world where technology dominates over natural factors. Luckily, there are now no language barriers. And, the distance between two places is not a problem anymore, thanks to the internet. Thus, the spreading of language and dialects are easier now as compared to the 90s and 80s.
Recently, gen z has come over through many slangs and dialogues that have developed by themselves. Usually, such dialogues are extracted from either a TV show, movie, reality show, or some famous personality. However, the gaming industry has also contributed a lot in the same. Some famous slang like GG (Good Game), OP (Overpower), AFK (Away from the keyboard), etc., have origins in the gaming industry and are popularized by famous gamers.
One such term used widely among teenagers is “Sussy Baka.” Let’s glimpse some important details of this term that every teenager should know.

The actual meaning of Sussy Baka
Being a common phrase in social media, this term is getting a position in the daily conversation of the masses, especially the youth. They use this cool slang in almost every place, from the comment section of social media to normal conversation.
The term consists of two words i.e., “Sussy” and “Baka”. The word “Sussy” is taken from the word “sus,” which is an abbreviation of Suspicious, “which means something you cannot trust upon”. Thus, Sussy means suspicious.
On the other hand, “Baka” is a Japanese word that means idiot or a fool. Hence, the whole meaning of the phrase is “suspicious fool”. According to many social media users, the word first came into existence when a normal Tiktoker, Akeam Francismm, used this word in his several videos. Initially, he only used “Baka” in his videos, but later it was accompanied by “Sussy Baka,” which instantly got viral on TikTok and was liked by audiences.
“Sussy Baka” gaining life.
It all started when on March 9, 2021, a TikTok, Nyatsumii, posted a video featuring another TikTok user, akeamfrancis2, which was a live stream. In this live stream, the TikTok used the word “Baka” while taking deep breaths. This video crossed almost 1.7 million views in just a month and literally broke the internet.
The clip was about an anime character named Izuku Mirdoriya from My Hero Academia. This trend also attracted many content creators to do the same; the engagement in the same was impressive. The word “Baka”, became pretty famous on social media. In fact, it then became a trend on TikTok. Many popular users, including Francis himself, use this phrase.
Later, the trend spread across other social platforms like Instagram, youtube, and many others. Thanks to this, it made a huge fan base for this word. However, it eventually turned into a meme from a popular phrase.
The game which made it famous
The first game associated with “Sussy Baka” was Among Us. It is a multiplayer game in which ten players follow instructions on the ground. This ground typically can be an alien spaceship., sky headquarters, or planet base. Every player is assigned a role. For example, it can be a crewmate or an imposter. The game is an online video game you can play on Android, IOS, and windows.
The main aim of the players in this game is to complete the task that every player receives. For example, in the group of 10 players, there is an imposter who looks like a normal character but has a different task from the other players. Imposters have to stop the crewmates from completing their tasks and have to kill them one by one.
Every time a player dies, all the crewmates look for the imposter. They try to find it with the number of votes. This way, the most suspicious character gets the highest number of votes. Thus, there is a big chance that they are the imposter.
Generally, when voting for the imposter, the player tends to determine the most suspicious or “sus’ player. The term “sus” is now gradually becoming “Sussy Baka,” which refers to a player who can be an imposter.
This game gained great fame during lockdown due to Covid-19. Players from around the globe started using this term during their gameplay. Many esports gamers and social media influencers also add fuel to the fire of the trend. This resulted in a great explosion of the slang.
A lot of people use this phrase in various ways. While some say, “He seems to be a sussy Baka,” others say, “What a sussy Baka are you?”. However, the term seems to be cool, only when you use it to disrespect your friend or game mate. However, many residents of Japan are confronting the use of “Baka.” That is because they do not want you to call a random person an idiot directly because of his lack of gaming skills.
Even so, this phrase has made a great impact on the popular game ‘’Among Us,’’ and anyone who is a fan of this game is also a fan of these phrases.
Does it have any connection with Anime?
An anime is cartoon series which have its roots or origin in Japan. Putting in similar words, a Japanese cartoon series is usually termed Anime. In a couple of years, the craze of anime has skyrocketed among the people of different countries. Its amazing storyline and cool animation accompanied with drama and action put together have done wonders. Animes have broken many records of western cartoons and have surpassed them in fandom.
Even though many people watch anime and love the Sussy Baka phrase, it still does not link any connection between them. Though, indeed, the slang was first used for an anime character, but just because it is Japanese doesn’t mean it has anything to do with anime.
On a concluding note, various terms have gone famous due to the social media and gaming industry. While the meme culture also has a significant role to play in the spreading of “Sussy Baka.” However, most of the slang is not toxic, but it should be your responsibility to know about the phrase you are using.
Sometimes, unintentionally you may hurt someone’s feelings which can cause you big trouble. So, always pay attention to what you see and use on the internet.
