Are you

PECULIAR? (Sorry, I had to!)

My prefix is how @Duck eats(no offense),

Eats by PEC(king) at food.

My suffix is the most popular here,

As found by @PerpetualJ, this is LIAR.

My infix is a someone who does something wrong in Romania,

In Romanian, ECUL translates to "FAILURE".

A very peculiar riddle, this. @Yout Ried insists that they are in fact the peculiar one!

Partial Answer


Currently working this in chunks.

My prefix is how @Duck eats (no offense).

Ducks are broken down into two categories, dabblers and divers. Dabblers eat in shallow water, while divers, well, you get the point. The prefix could be dab, dive, or in the case of @Duck, since his photo is of a rubber duck, they typically eat water in the bathtub and thus the prefix could also be suck since they suck in the water through a hole.

This could also quite literally be eat since technically @Duck eats by eating.

My suffix is the most popular here.

- A Short Brutal Riddle by @Roland which is the most popular riddle here. The answer is liar.

My infix kills millions; My infix is a someone who does something wrong in Romania.

Previously I had war and time in which war was correct, but the puzzle has changed and this is now wrong.

I'm not sure but a criminal in Romanian is a penal. Combining this with the suffix yields no results.

Altogether is what I am.

    Good find on the suffix, @PerpetualJ!! :D – El-Guest Sep 19 at 15:57

Partial: infix

OD - millions of people die of overdosing.
POX - a plague that had millions of victims. Does not fit as much as OD imo, because 'kills' is in present tense but pox is more a problem of the past

  • Oh my oops my suffix was the wrong thing... oops I gotta fix that please check the updated version in a bit – Yout Ried 1 min ago edit – Yout Ried Sep 19 at 14:55
  • sorry, but you're not on the right track – Yout Ried Sep 19 at 14:58

A wild stab in the dark.

Are you:

Tableware?

My prefix is how @Duck eats

I don't know @Duck personally but maybe he eats off a TABLE?

My suffix sounds like an undefined place,

WARE sounds like "where" - an undefined place

My infix kills millions

Millions die in shootings where they get "blown away" - BLEW.
