* NeverMyFault: Averted. While [[SurroundedByIdiots he seethes at the fact all his robots are imbeciles]], he admits it's his fault for designing them, [[KneelBeforeZod and even claims that the "hailing circuit" was his one moment of weakness]].

* NeverMyFault: Averted. While [[SurroundedByIdiots he seethes at the fact all his robots are imbeciles]], he admits it's his fault for designing them, [[KneelBeforeZod and even claims that the "hailing circuit" was his one moment of weakness]]. Then he tries to fix his mistake by designing a MUCH smarter robot mini-boss.
* NotSoDifferent: Gray may be a genius, but he's still just a [[IdiotSavant Mann]]. His robots run on [[MoneySpider piles of cash]]. And he has a gravel company. And he invoked Saxton Hale's CEO fight-to-the-death, which turned out to be a stroke of genius but due to poor wording and incompetently-handled context almost got him killed by Australian punches ''while his robot army was ordered to stay still and watch''. Hell, after a year (in a non-canon comic) he's reduced to selling ''hats'' to get more funding.

* KnightOfCerebus: Much like Gray himself, the classic team is dead serious and much more competent and organized than their modern counterparts. Fitting, considering the tone of their game compared to that of ''[=TF2=]''. "Old Wounds" solidifies this with the fact that Classic Heavy eventually decides to kill Gray and take his the role of the BigBad.

** Also, he didn't plan for [[spoiler:Classic Heavy usurping him in the middle of his robot-army fortress]].

* EgomaniacHunter: He fully embodies the Egomaniac part of this trope to its fullest and beyond. How he passes the time? Reading his own literature, as in, books that he himself wrote.

** TrophyRoom: Parodied. He has the typical den full of exotic mounted heads, [[FateWorseThanDeath but all the wild game he's bagged was captured alive and kept standing on boxes behind the walls, so he can always "look into their hilarious defeated eyes"]].

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: His cunning rivals the Administrator's, easily outwitting both her and Saxton Hale.



* NeverMyFault: Averted. While [[SurroundedByIdiots he seethes at the fact all his robots are imbeciles]], he admits it's his fault for designing them, [[KneelBeforeZod and even claims that the "hailing circuit" was his one moment of weakness]]. Needless to say, the new Mecha-Engineers are where he once again shows he's ultimately DangerouslyGenreSavvy.

* OutsideContextProblem: Gray Mann is a DangerouslyGenreSavvy [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] on par with the Administrator herself, is relatively immortal and has a massive army on his side. ''No one'' was prepared for his sudden intrusion into the plot, and he has in fact nearly won several times; only some quick thinking by the Administrator and Miss Pauling have prevented his victories.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: They know that simply killing Miss Pauling and the modern mercs ''now'' won't bring the Administrator out of hiding, so they're watching and waiting until she reveals herself. They also appear to have already found some Australium, much to Gray's visible delight.
** Classic Spy managed to trick Ms. Pauling into revealing the Administrator's location by disguising himself as Modern Heavy, here to rescue them.
* DoubleTap: Goes with DangerouslyGenreSavvy above, Classic Sniper shot Sniper twice when they first met, killing him. [[DeathIsCheap Medic managed to bring him back later though.]]

Mayor Mike is a minor character from the comics. He's the mayor of Teufort, but surprisingly he [[spoiler:knows very little about what Mayors are allowed to do, resulting in him legally screwing things up for a lot of people.]] He's also quite DangerouslyGenreSavvy, almost getting half the Mercs executed until Miss Pauling comes to the rescue.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: [[spoiler:Despite being very GenreSavvy, it's later revealed that he (and almost everyone else in Teufort) is completely insane due to the contaminated water supply.]]
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: When he catches Spy and Scout in a safe, he immediately knows that if guards attack, Spy will kill them. So instead, he locks Scout and Spy in ''Scout's own safe.''

** StopHelpingMe: Sometimes you'll have the misfortune of getting a bomb head ''right before Merasmus decides to play [[TeleportSpam Prop]] [[VoluntaryShapeshifter Hunt]]''. All you can do in this case is hope that another player reveals him fast enough, because running into props with the bomb head does nothing, even if it ''is'' the one Merasmus is hiding as. This has since been patched; running into a prop with a bomb head destroys the prop and removes the bomb, but doesn't grant you the [=UberKritzSpeed=] boost.

* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]: Miss Pauling will lie, turn friend against friend, and put a bullet through her fellow employee's brains, all while maintaining a pleasant demeanor and a (relatively) cool head.

* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: Undoubtedly the crown queen of the trope out of everyone in ''Team Fortress''. While she fears the Administrator and is unamused by the wackiness of the mercenaries, she manages to keep calm and composed in all but the most dire of circumstances.[[note]]The only time this changed was when she realized the Spy is going to use a ''child'' to get them out of a jam in ''A Smissmas Story'', even if it ''does'' work without harm to the boy.[[/note]] "Ring of Fired" has shown that she's even grown used to the mercs, which is quite impressive.

* [[StraightMan Straight Woman]]: Given the [[RefugeInAudacity sheer audacity]] of pretty much every other relevant character in the ''Team Fortress'' universe, she winds up being this by default. This being the universe it is, [[{{Pun}} the token straight man is a lesbian]].
