The sentence: 悪い、拳 当たったよな リキっちまって…

In Oshi No Ko anime there's a scene where a guy punches the MC with force, despite it being supposed to be an act. I know that リキ here refers to the force/power, but where does the ちまって in 「リキっちまって」come from? is it a contraction of 行っちまって?

It sounds like a form of リキる, contraction of リキってしまって→リキっちまって, but I'm not sure that's a common word even as a slang. I would guess the meaning is the same as 力む - exerting extra/unnecessary force.

(If it was リキむ instead, the same form would be リキんじまって.)

  • Thanks, I was confused as I couldn't find リキる in a dictionary, but it's probably a pretty rare slang. Commented May 8, 2023 at 16:28
