  1. Pusher: A pusher, pusher craft, pusher boat, or pusher tug is a boat designed for pushing barges or car floats. These boats are often called towboats in US English, but this term is used even in US English more commonly to refer to tugboats, which is why the meaning "tugboat" is usually listed first even in US dictionaries. Pushers are characterized by a square bow with steel knees for pushing and powerful engines. They are most often seen on inland waterways and western rivers where they can push more than 50 large barges lashed together into a tow of varying shapes and sizes. Pushers that travel long distances include living quarters for the crew.
  2. Pusher: A pusher is a worker who pushes people onto the train at a railway station during the morning and evening rush hours. When they were first brought in at Shinjuku Station, they were called "passenger arrangement staff", and were largely made up of students working part-time; nowadays, station staff and/or part-time workers fill these roles during morning rush hours on many lines. The term oshiya is derived from the verb "osu", meaning "push", and the suffix "-ya", indicating "line of work.
    • also known as Oshiya
  3. Pusher: In tennis, a pusher is a defensive player who "pushes" back any shot they can chase down, without deliberately hitting a winner. They can angle shots, aim deep, as well as produce effective lobs. Pushers are extremely quick and consistent, rarely making errors. This style of play, similar to a "human backboard", often tires and frustrates more offensive opponents. They will try to win games by eliciting unforced errors from the opponent, i.e. by waiting for them to make the first mistake and losing the point. Pushers love to "dink" balls back with sidespin or backspin, placing their shots at a disadvantageous locations for their opponents. The pusher's strategy also tends to involve a fair amount of psychological warfare.
