He leído mucho este término en muchos foros de discusión en ingles, quisiera saber si saben que término en español podría ser un buen equivalente a este. Ojo, en los foros lo utilizar con su acepción de 'buscapleitos", "provocador", "atrevido", "rudo", "bravucón" y también con la acepción de "vanguardista".

As fuck se suele utilizar para enfatizar el adjetivo anterior.

Awesome as fuck, cool as fuck, rich as fuck

En la jerga española diría que es jodidamente bueno, jodidamente aburrido, ...

Edgy significa inquieto, tenso, nervioso, su significado y sinónimos en merrian:

Synonyms: aflutter, antsy, anxious, atwitter, dithery, edgy, goosey, het up, hinky [slang], hung up, ill at ease, insecure, jittery, jumpy, nervy, perturbed, queasy (also queazy), tense, troubled, uneasy, unquiet, upset, uptight, worried

Así que edgy as fuck lo utilizaría como jodidamente inquietante, extraño, oscuro, nervioso pero como lo inquietante a su vez provoca controversia también puede ser que despierta curiosidad ya sea por ser muy vanguardista o provocador.

I don't like the adverb "jodidamente". It is very used on media to translate "fucking", but in actual speak I almost never heard it. I think some other expressions are more natural like "raro de cojones". – Flamma Jan 19 '14 at 18:15
@Flamma for me is quite common, maybe another regionalism? – Laura Jan 24 '14 at 12:15
@Laura Where exactly? I have lived on many places on Spain and I never heard it on a real life conversation (only in TV and movies dubs). – Flamma Jan 24 '14 at 15:53

I'd say "bravo como ninguno". There's no translation (that I know of) for "as fuck"...
