** Since hair tends to darken with age, blondness does correlate with youth. Therefore, it emphasizes his youthfulness. Also, it's not a bad bet that he's really a virgin like Spy says, so that goes with HairOfGoldHeartOfGold. Then the fandom tends to misperceive him as actually ''innocent'', even though he's not, and blond hair goes with innocence, apparently. Plus, you can't really see his hair color much under that hat, and it's kind of a washed-out dishwatery color, so maybe people just can't figure out what color it is. Or maybe it's just because BlondGuysAreEvil.\\

** We have a trope for this: RealityIsUnrealistic. If their accents weren't obvious fakes and exaggerations, people wouldn't believe they're actually real and think they're faked. There was that Jamaican girl from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' who people thought was faking - despite that ''the actress was Jamaican''. I've seen people say that ''VideoGame/ForbiddenSiren'' for the Playstation2 had corny fake British accents despite ''that the voice actors are British'' - The publishers just took the already-English version and marketed that because voice actors cost money. (I hear several games that are released in America first just use the American English voice tracks to save money)

[[folder:Son of a *beep*]]
*Why do they bother censoring the f-words in the shorts, such as in Meet the Spy ("And now he's here to *beep* US!")? This is an M-rated game with people being blown to bits from explosions. I mean, I'm not saying that the game should have gone [[ClusterFBomb THAT route]], with f-words and s-words being shouted out left and right, but a few big swears not even included in the ACTUAL game wouldn't really hurt the game's cartoony atmosphere. Plus, it seems kind of moot to censor the Spy's swear when later in that very same cartoon, the Spy ''[[YourHeadASplode gets his head graphically blown off]]''.

*** They also have the vita-saw, where [[Creator/IrrationalGames IrrationalGames]] made it so that [[Creator/ValveSoftware Valve]] couldn't sell it on the Mann Co. store due to copyright.

** WebVideo/GameTheoryWebShow pointed out that given the evidence presented, Pyro is either a woman, or a homosexual man. A very flamboyant homosexual man.
*** He also skimmed over data that didn't support to his theory, and focused mainly on body types measured by pixels through a flame-retardant suit.
**** He also used a lot of data with UnfortunateImplications (like feminine man = homosexual) that aren't 100% indicators of anything.

*** The official wiki has the blurb "Wreak havoc on your opponent's mental state, psychological well-being and trust in the inherent goodness of his fellow man!". It may not be "lose the will to live", but it's the same principle. Besides, that still doesn't answer the question of why it affects the fully covered Pyro.
*** The power of tossing piss on people is so concentrated, it can disrupt even the Pyro's dreamland.
