What does "Balanced" mean?

People talk about “Unbalanced”, “OP” or “Overpowered” characters or monsters all the time, but there’s really no one standard for what that means. It can mean a few different things, in my experience. Spotlight Hogging The character in question is dominating the game, hogging the spotlight so that the other players feel left out. This is usually applied to characters that are way better in combat than the other characters, frequently one-shot-killing enemies that the rest of the group needs to spend several rounds whittling down.
