A nerf herder keeps watch over a herd of nerfs.

"Why, you low-down, stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf-herder…"
"Who's scruffy-looking?"
―Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo[src]

A nerf herder, also spelled "nerf-herder" or "nerfherder," was someone who herded nerfs on various planets throughout the galaxy. As it was perceived as an occupation for lower-class beings, the term "nerf herder" became an insult used throughout the galaxy. Nerf herders were often somewhat simple, but as a result of living outdoors and fighting off anything that interfered with their herds, they became quite capable.

Behind the scenesEdit

A pop-punk band derived its name from this phrase.
