Tokisaki kurumi Waifu is Internet slang for a fictional female character from non-live-action visual media (typically an anime, manga or video game) to whom one is attracted. The term is borrowed from Japanese ワイフ, in turn derived from the word wife.

The word was introduced to Western audiences in an episode of Azumanga Daioh.

The male version of the term is husbando.

The versions of the term for a fictional character whom one views as their child are kidfu, daughteru, or sonfu.
