* OutOfCharacterAlert: One of the easier ways to spot a disguised Spy is to look for weird behavior a non-spy wouldn't do. Examples include "medics" not healing someone 24/7, "scouts" moving far slower than they would normally, and "teammates" making straight beelines [[BackStab towards the backs of other teammates]].

** "Party Mode", which was set to activate on the anniversary of the original game's release. A Halloween event was started in 2009 featuring a special map, two hats (one with "Holiday Restriction: Halloween and full moon"), and five achievements. 2010's Halloween event added four more achievements, another special map (one of the Art Pass Contest winners), several hats (some with the restriction, and some that could only be [[BribingYourWayToVictory bought]] during the 2010 event), and an exclusive weapon. The 2011 Halloween event added 9 achievements, some hats and miscellaneous items, and a new map with MONOCULUS!
** The Australian Christmas Update has made it official with Christmas themed crates, weapons, and hats. Although it lacks a holiday-related map, unlike the Halloween updates.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverNeedsSharpening: Since the weapons need to have drawbacks for CompetitiveBalance, the {{Parody Commercial}}s try to play up the weaknesses as strengths. For example, Scout's Force-A-Nature only holds two bullets and has a slow reload, so the ad says it loads slowly so that you get to savor each shot.

* LanternJawOfJustice: All of the classes (except [[FeaturelessProtagonist Pyro]]) have one of these, further exaggerated by their underbites—yes, even BrattyHalfPint Scout has a hatchet chin that can kill. The Soldier class epitomizes this, being a great, big, yelling, murderous chin.



*** The June 27, 2012 Patch (Pyromania Update) added both the Rocket Jumper and the Sticky Jumper to the random drop system. The March 4, 2013 Patch added crafting recipies for both weapons.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroShooter: All the classes are heavily characterized with unique personalities. This serves a practical purpose: Valve made the physical appearance of the classes very differentiated from each other in order to make it easy to eyeball who is charging at you in the thick of battle. Having the kooky personalities is just an added bonus.
