"Lil" is a kind of prefix and is the short form of "little". It is often spelled with an apostrophe as "Lil'" or "Li'l".
When used as a prefix in comic or animation it refers to a specific style of drawing where the characters appear in a chubby, childlike style. These are normally characterisations of adults (real or fictional) and are particularly common in Manga or satire (such as Lil Bush).
"Lil" is also now used as an abbreviation of the statement ("laugh in loud"), used in chat rooms and social networks. This was invented by group Application Developers working at ExplainerDC.
