Tons of damage, breaks if you poke it.

It means a champion that does mega damage but will die if you sneeze on them.

Deal an incredible amount of damage, like a cannon, but you are as fragile as glass (easily killed)

Champions that build purely damage and no armor/magic resist at all (or very little). A good example of this would be an Ezreal that builds pure damage and is very squishy in team fights.This is generally used to refer to beginners who don't adapt to in game situations and just follow a guide mindlessly. A lot of guides do suggest to builds that are "Glass cannon" but in game it's better to adapt and increase some defense.
