* SequelEscalation: The original game (as ''VideoGame/TeamFortressClassic'') had nine basic models with one voice, weapons mostly shared with ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Quake}}'', and a text-heavy interface. [=TF2=] gave each class its own silhouette, voice, nationality, personality, game mechanic, personal HUD elements, and weapons (only two stock weapons are shared between multiple classes - Soldier, Pyro, Heavy and Engineer all have a Shotgun, and the Scout and Engineer share the Pistol) fitting into an all-encompassing art style.

** In ''Expiration Date'' the team's reaction to being told that [[spoiler: they'll die in ten days due to cancer-infested bread]] is surprisingly indifferent, suggesting that they're already used to dying repeatedly.

** The comics follow up on this by repeatedly implying that Spy is Scout's real father (which Scout refuses to even acknowledge as a possibility).

* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler:The ''moment'' Grey fires the Team, the local populace immediately start hunting them down (starting with Scout and Spy), because they're sociopathic murderers who have been terrorizing them for years, and now don't have Mann Co to protect them]].
** Subverted when it turns out that Mann Co.'s dubious health and safety protocols (and toxic water supply) already turned the town of Teufort insane. They're accusing the mercs for crazy stuff that they did themselves.

--> '''Engineer''': So we're fine, [[TemptingFate as long as nobody]] [[spoiler:[[ItMakesSenseInContext teleports any bread]]]]!
--> '''Soldier''': Question.
--> '''Engineer''': What is it, Soldier?
--> '''Soldier''': [[spoiler:I teleported bread.]]
...
--> '''Engineer''': How...much?
--> '''Soldier''': [[spoiler:[[OffscreenInertia I have done nothing but teleport bread for three days.]]]]

* SeadogPegLeg: The Demoman's "Swashbuckler's Swag" outfit includes a peg leg. It's a reskin of Ali Baba's Wee Booties, which bizarrely means having a pegleg ''[[ImprobableAccessoryEffect increases]]'' the Demoman's mobility while charging and health.

* RepeatedCueTardyResponse: In "Meet the Spy", the BLU Soldier has killed the BLU Spy because the latter was "obviously" the RED Spy.
-->'''BLU Soldier''': Watch, he'll turn red any second now. ... Annyyy second now...
