A low-level thug used in a fight mainly to increase numbers; an expendable no-name criminal; an unknown.

The concept of mooks is used in many action movies (particularly in kung-fu) and beat-em-up arcade games, where the hero(es) cut through wave after wave of enemies easily (these being mooks) until they reach the boss of the scene, who despite being possibly weaker-looking than the mooks, is usually much more powerful/elusive.
"Remember the Stormtroopers from Star Wars? How hundreds of them couldn't hit the broad side of a docking bay door? What a bunch of mooks."

A New York-ism, derived from the English/Irish slang, "moke," for donkey. A contemptible person capable of criminal behavior who is best avoided.
"You mooks gedda fuggouta heah or I'll lock ya's up."

A person who is full of themselves. A person who acts like they are better than anyone and super self-centered. No one really likes these people and they find them very irritating. They often can be found wearing popped collar polo shirts, backwards hats, and stone washed jeans. Further identifying marks are tribal tattoos and Cali stars. It has been believed that the mook population annually migrates to it's native breeding ground of New Jersey.
Rick: Hey what's wrong with that ET2 Delia, is he always a dick face?

Chet: Yeah he's always a fucking mook. Fuck him.

mook is an Italian-Americanism from the word "mucchio," meaning heap or pile.
"You're a mook!" as in you're a pile of shit
