* MedalOfDishonor: There's an achievement for the Sniper called "Consolation Prize" that requires the player to get backstabbed 50 times.

** The Ullapool Caber is an unlockable melee weapon for the Demoman; all it is is a German WW2 stick grenade that explodes when it hits an enemy or a non-friendly solid object, dealing 100 damage to the Demoman and launching him high up in the air, likely to be finished off by fall damage. But it's capable of dealing upwards of 180 damage to any enemies caught in the explosion, and, if combined with the Chargin' Targe for a guaranteed melee critical... 400+ easily. Your team not able to keep the cart back? [[SuicideAttack Just charge in and clear out the entire thing and buy them some time]].

** [[AllThereInTheManual According to supplementary materials]], [[HuskyRusskie The Heavy]] helped his family escape {{the gulag}} which they were imprisoned in after [[YouKilledMyFather the Heavy's father was executed]] for [[GloriousMotherRussia counterrevolutionary activities]]; [[HerrDoktor The Medic]] is [[AllGermansAreNazis a stereotypical heartless and amoral German]] who is strongly implied to have grown up in UsefulNotes/NaziGermany, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial despite supplementary materials claiming that he isn't a Nazi]]; and [[PsychoForHire The Soldier]] was old enough to be rejected from serving in {{World War II}} because of [[AxCrazy mental issues]] and yet he still travelled by himself to the frontline, only stopping fighting [[TheRemnant in 1949]] when someone tracked him down in {{Poland}} to tell him the war was over.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Oktoberfest}}: The Medic is German, and of course has the stereotypical accent. [[MemeticMutation "Oktoberfest"]] is one of his taunts. Thankfully, he doesn't wear lederhosen, though he can put on a NiceHat. A Mann vs. Machine map brings the team to his hometown of Rottenburg, which looks to have situated itself as this for tourists.

* LessonsInSophistication: In the short "Expiration Date", The Scout takes lessons on how to be a proper gentleman from The Spy, in order to have a proper date with Mis Pauling before the Red team dies of [[ItMakesSenseInContext teleporter induced cancer.]] This being ''[=TF2=]'', HilarityEnsues.

* {{Jobber}}: The BLU team in the official videos. Since the focus is always on the RED team (except for "Meet The Spy", where it's a MookHorrorShow with the BLU team reacting to the RED Spy,) whenever BLU appears, they're usually getting their asses kicked.

to:

* JarPotty: The Jarate, a jar of yellow piss. Sniper can throw this to cause mini-crits on any poor bastard that gets hit and in conjunction with the Bushwacka, Sniper gets full crits at the cost of taking 20% more damage due to the knife. The jarate can also mark spies or extinguish team mates. It's Smisstmas version has a team-color ribbon, a cork, and sticker that says "Merry Smissmas, Mate!" to rub it in.

Even in the Competitive Mode trailer, BLU team loses to a gloating Red team.

Added DiffLines:

* MagikarpPower: A Level 1 Sentry is barely a hassle to the enemy team, with most classes being able to dispatch one with ease. A level 3 Sentry, on the other hand, can completely deny entire pushes without an Ubercharge or a Spy to disable it.
** The Eyelander starts off with giving the user 25 less max health and a slower melee deploy. Accumulate four kills with it, and you'll have 60 more max health and move nearly as fast as a scout.
** The Bazaar Bargain starts off with a slower charge rate, but becomes faster with every kill.
** The Air Strike initially has weaker rockets and a smaller explosion radius, but [[DeathFromAbove shoots faster while rocket jumping]]. It also increases in clip size with every kill, capping at four kills (8 rockets) for [[MacrossMissileMassacre raining explodey death upon your opponents]].

* LostForever:
** Between when Valve implemented the "Delete" button for unlockable items and the new method for unlocking items, there was no way to get unlockable items back after deletion.
** The website describing the "Classless Update" had a hidden page that awarded a medal to the first 11,111 players who found it (the medal itself is just a CosmeticAward for the Soldier). Players who missed that secret will never be able to get the award, so it is truly lost ''forever''.
** The Soldier/Demoman update featured the Soldier and Demoman fighting each other for one week. At the end of it, the Soldier class won the fight and received boots that dampen their own splash damage, which the Demoman will never receive.
*** Valve has since gotten into the habit of offering something for a limited time for doing something that usually has nothing to do with the game itself (such as preordering ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'', and later ''having'' ''Left 4 Dead 2'' by a certain date).
** The Golden Wrench, which led up to the Engineer Update, was only obtainable by a rare chance when crafting. Only 100 in total were given, not including the six drops.
** All the items from the [[http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Japan_Charity_Bundle Japan Charity Bundle]] cannot be crafted or traded. Since April 6, 2011, they are never available again.
** Notice how long the list of "All Class" hats is? Notice how cheap the crafting cost is compared to class-specific hats? That's because of that entire list of items, only a few are actually craftable. Namely, all of the ones you can craft under normal circumstances (i.e: not event or promotion related) can literally be counted on one hand (there are 5 craftable ones as of this entry, as opposed to the 30 in total, 33 if you count the prize versions of the three Tower pile of Hats.). The rest are all promotion or event related, and are quite possibly lost forever.
*** This has been altered greatly, with the introduction of giving items in Genuine quality for taking part in promotional material, and releasing basic (yellow-name) versions of the item into the drop and crafting system about a week later.
** Actively enforced as of January 10, 2013. Certain hats are now being "retired" meaning the item server will no longer give them to you from random drops and crafting, and there are plans to retire more hats as time goes on.
** Certain items have received the "Limited Quantity" marker, which refers to items that cannot be obtained any more through random drop, crafting, store purchases, or promotions. This includes the Golden Wrench, bread weapons, Festive weapons, many of the aformentioned items, any cosmetic items from the Limited Late Summer Pack, and several promotional items. [[https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Limited_Quantity#Limited_Quantity Here's the list.]]
