Backslash is an MMA (multiple martial arts) move where a fighter hits the wrong key on his keyboard. He/she may have been trying to hit Backspace to put an opponent on his/her back or it may have been an attempt to hit the Slash key to start writing a fanfic parody of the opponent.

Since backslash is an illegal move, the fighter gets a half-point deduction and is limited to C++ for the next five minutes. Sometimes this is used as a feint, making the opponent overconfident and allowing a fighter to bite his/her head off.
