arkajalka, pelkuri


Explanation:
Sekä "chicken" että "wuss" kuvaavat turhia pelkäävää ihmistä, eli siis arkajalkaa tai pelkuria. Ilman tekstiyhteyttä en ole varma, mitä sanat tarkoittavat yhdistelmänä, eli onko kyseessä joku erillinen termi.

Nössö/nössökkä


Explanation:
Pelkuri on todellakin hyvä sana kuvaamaan "(chicken) wuss":ia, mutta kun on kyse tietokonepelistä, kyseessä on ehkä enemmänkin sanan slangimaisempi käyttö, jolloin "nössö" tai "nössökkä" olisi sopiva vaihtoehto.
