BAMF = bad @ss mutha%$3@ aka Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler owns that title because of obvious reasons. Because he is a BAMF. The little things are dimension hopper things, I think.

it's the sound the vacuum that nightcrawler makes/fills when appearing/disappearing into his father's dimension makes.

I think you'll find Midnighter has yet to lose that title to anyone.

Bamf is the sound that Nightcrawler makes when he teleports, but they are also small interdimensional imps that resemble Nightcrawler.

Bamf! is the noise Nightcrwler makes when teleporting.

Oh, how I love comic book sound effects!

It's just the sound those little guys make when they teleport. So that is the nickname given to them. In ish 7 Starblood, the scientist that tries to kill Broo, says he knows what they are, but hits the ground before he tells you that.

IIRC they started off as creatures in a bedtime story Kitty told to child Illyana, then it turns out they are extradimensional creatures that met Nightcrawler and called him "dad" because he was a bigger version of them. Originally they are not him from another reality or his children, but of course that can all change.

It's a noise. Particularly a noise that is made when Nightcrawler teleports. Use your imagination on what that noise actually sounds like.

Bamfs are dolls stylized to look like Nighcrawler that X-men give to children and lovers.

check out Bamf and BAMF Doll for more details.

Those little guys running around in Wolverine and the X-Men are not Bamfs.

So there is no explanation or origin for those W&tXM critters then?

@knighthood: I think an explanation is coming up soon...they are tied to Nightcrawler and Azazel some how but that's about all we know...and they like whiskey

that's about the size of it. It was mentioned by Dr. Xanto Starblood in Wolverine and the X-men that,

"Ms. Pryde thinks you're Bamfs. I wrote my college thesis on the migration patterns of inter-dimensional gremlins. I've seen Bamfs. I've studied Bamfs. You, my friends, are definitely not Bamfs. You look more to me like--"

and then he gets teleported into the lawn or something, but either way, he seems to know what he's talking about. I imagine we'll find out in Amazing X-men what they really are, but apparently they're not Bamfs.

@mcklayn: Nightcrawler's soul sure loves a good drink.

which would not even be the craziest thing that's ever happened to Nightcrawler..
