* MemeAcknowledgment: Many players and forum posters pointed out at the first reveal of Saxton Hale that his name could be unintentionally rearranged into a very NSFW search term. This did not go unnoticed by the team -- in the Mann-Conomy Update, new Internet user Hale mentions that "the perverts at [=AnagramYourName.com=] should be ''ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES"'', and implies that he's either sued them out of existence or had them killed.

* WordOfGay: [[https://mobile.twitter.com/jaypinkerton/status/612113790750961664 Writer Jay Pinkerton confirmed on twitter that he wanted to make Miss Pauling a lesbian as part of an extended punchline.]] He never got the chance (and the actual canon paints her as a [[ChasteHero Chaste Anti-Villain]]) but many fans are either treating it as if it happened anyway.

** The seven-issue ''Mann Co. No More'' comic series was initially advertised as Bi-Monthly, meaning the issues would be released over the course of one year. In about one year's time, there have only been three issues released. This was hilariously lampshaded in the second issue's blog post, where the Valve team claimed to have spent the extra time between issues debating what 'Bi-Monthly' actually meant. This is taken to the extreme when they claim that Issue #4 is a 6 months early annual comic. Issue #6 is right up there with 'Half Life 3'' as Valve's longest delayed unpublished product, being ten months behind ''and counting''.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** '''Scout''': Nathan Vetterlein is the infected church guy in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead''. This got an ActorAllusion.
** '''Soldier''': The Soldier is voiced by Rick May, the voice of Peppy and Andross in Star Fox 64.
** '''Pyro'''/'''Spy''': Dennis Bateman also voiced the helicopter pilot who picks up [[VideoGame/Left4Dead the Survivors]] at the end of No Mercy; he recorded a set of unused lines for that character which would have added [[WhatCouldHaveBeen storyline continuity between the missions]].
** '''Demoman'''/'''Heavy''': Gary Schwartz also voices the radio voice at the airport runway in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead''.
** '''Engineer''': For the Nintendo players out there, the Engineer is voiced by Grant Goodeve, also known for ''VideoGame/StarFox Assault'' Wolf.
*** When you're playing ''VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon'', you'll eventually realize that Harlan Wade is one seriously disturbed Genetic Engineer.
** '''Medic''': Medic's voice actor is RobinAtkinDownes, or [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker Kazuhira]] [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain Miller.]]
** '''Sniper''': John Patrick Lowrie does Sniper and most of the random male characters in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}''. And he's married to Creator/EllenMcLain, who does the Announcer. Definitely Valve's go-to couple -- one or the other of them has been in ''every'' game Valve's put out since [=HL2=].
** '''Announcer''': Is voiced by Creator/EllenMcLain, who also does SelfDemonstrating/{{GLaDOS}}.
** Two new voices were introduced in the Halloween 2012 event: Merasmus and the Bombinomicon, both voiced by Creator/NolanNorth.
** Nolan North returned for the 2013 Halloween event, both voicing Blutarch & Redmond Mann.
** Creator/AshlyBurch voiced Ms. Pauling in the Expiration Date short and helped write it.

** Grenades in the style of ''VideoGame/TeamFortressClassic'' were almost implemented in the final version of ''Team Fortress 2'', but were taken out, due to the imbalance they posed. The only remnants are the cosmetic items on the Soldier's, Demoman's, and Pyro's sash.

* The [[MemeticMutation boolit]] the Heavy holds up near the end of "Meet the Heavy" is a [=7.62x39mm=] cartridge; the same kind of ammo used in the [=AK-47=] which like the Heavy, also hails from the Soviet Union.

%%* FreudianExcuse: She believes that everyone else in the world is a driveling idiot. Given that she [[spoiler:grew up in Teufort, where a chemical leak has tainted the groundwater and given everyone else brain damage]], we can hardly blame her.
%%No information on who "she" is. It's unknown whether you are talking about the Administrator, Miss Pauling or any other of the female characters.
