What does GOATed mean?

Declared the best

Something that is GOATed is awesome or baller. This slang term transforms the acronym GOAT into a verb, which netizens use to declare various people and items the best of their kind.

Origin of GOATed

In the late 2010s, saying something or someone "is GOATed" became a popular way to label that person or thing the greatest of all time. Over time, GOATed's meaning softened a bit, as people used it to describe things that were top-tier but not the absolute "best."

GOATed resurged in popularity in late 2021 and early 2022, likely due to its inclusion in a popular Twitter copypasta. This copypasta gave rise to the phrase "GOATed with the sauce," which social media and forum users use to describe someone who has epic swag.
