The process of sustained, fast leveling in computer role-playing games. Many RPGers dislike the practice believing that, as an attempt to "beat" an RPG, it misses the point of role-playing. Powerleveling can mean different things depending on whether or not other people are playing the game. Usually, a player that is of much greater power will assist a player of much lower power in defeating monsters that are far too powerful for the low level player. In general this is considered a form of cheating.
