* NeverLearnedToRead: The Administrator and Pauling seem to believe most of them are illiterate. It's mostly an InformedFlaw, as all but Soldier and arguably Pyro seem to be capable of reading just fine (with the Heavy, the Medic and the Engineer even having [=PhDs=]).

* NeverLearnedToRead: The Administrator and Pauling seem to believe most of them are illiterate. Saxton Hale confirms in "The Contract", that at least four of them cannot read. There is some discussion about who the most likely candidates.
**
It's mostly an InformedFlaw, worth remembering that people who are ashamed of their illiteracy can go for years undetected by learning little tricks such as all but ''pretending'' to read books, repeating what they know to be written, and correctly guessing from pictures. They can even be quite intelligent in many other ways.
**
Soldier has been confirmed as being pretty much illiterate. Other guesses (not confirmed) include Pyro, Scout, and arguably Pyro seem to be capable of reading just fine (with the Heavy, the Medic and the Engineer even having [=PhDs=]).Demoman.

Added DiffLines:

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: A considerable number of the lines used in Valve's competitive matchmaking casually references the [=6v6=] format, like Demoman claiming he watched the scrim of the other team, and Heavy (not used in 6s outside of last point holds) claiming it's not his usual job.

** Zigzagged: the comics series repeatedly show they care little about each other as anything more than co-workers. The Soldier breaks the Scout's arms [[spoiler:(and killed Tom Jones)]] for no reason. The Pyro cuts off the Soldier's hand, (again) for no reason, the Demoman wanted to leave the Sniper behind, the Sniper wanted to ''torture'' Miss Pauling and kill her and Demoman (and she also injected him with poison when he captured her).

* {{Unscrupulous Hero}}es: Each team member has a few people whom they care for dearly (each other included) and a few spare [[EvenEvilHasStandards standards]], but otherwise won't think twice about doing dirty deeds for high prices. The single redeeming trait these otherwise sociopathic maniacs have in common is that they wholeheartedly care for their families, and loved ones.

** It should be noted that Hale didn't hit her not out of any moral qualms but more of a warrior's perrogative: she just wasn't a WorthyOpponent. He had no qualms in having his secretary and butler beating her up (too bad they did have a moral objection)
