Finally, A Supercut Of Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Favorite Cuss

If you’ve played Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, then you know that the game has a particular love of a single, solitary cuss: maláka. It means something between “jerk” and “asshole,” and it apparently fits in nearly any situation. And now there’s a supercut to show off the plenitude of the curse word.

Youtuber user YouKnowWho has assembled a veritable smorgasborg of Kassandra and other characters yelling the word at each other, and it’s actually surprising how many use cases there are for it. Additionally, while I don’t know any Greek, ancient or otherwise, it is neat to pick up the tenses of “maláka” simply through watching all the ways that it gets used.

I've played all of the Baldur's Gate games.

Where I live, in England, there is a huge community of Greeks. Not a day goes by when I don’t hear Ela, maláka! shouted from a window.

I love the word! I know it can be used as an insult but in the years I’ve been here it’s always sounded friendly.
