* TheArtifact: Demo's Grenade Launcher has 6 barrels, but only holds 4 grenades. This is because Team Fortress 2 originally launched with Demoman having 6 grenades per clip, but this proved to be one of the reasons why pre-nerf Demo overpowered and it was reduced to four. The default Grenade Launcher weapon model has never been changed.

* FanNickname: One of the Soldier's weapon unlocks, the Black Box, is often referred to as the Crutch Box due to it restoring health every time you deal damage with it. The Sniper's unlockable Huntsman is also commonly called the Lucksman, as the arrow has a weirdly large hitbox that causes it to land hits more often than it should appear to.

** PromotedFanboy: Tony Paloma (AKA Drunken F00l), creator of the immensely popular [=SourceOP=] plugin and the infamous idling program, as well as (unjust) crafter of a Golden Wrench. He ended up being VAC-banned. Fast-forward to present day: Tony is now working for the [=TF2=] team, after being hired by Valve last summer.
** Valve often features fan works on [=TF2=]'s main blog as well.

** 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 Issue #6 is right up there with ''Half Life 3'' as Valve's longest delayed unpublished product, taking a total of 17 months to finish.

* PropRecycling: Noticeable in the interior of some maps are a pair of extension cords that go from one wall and plug into an adjacent wall. Playing [=PropHunt=] in different maps allows the player to notice familiar-looking props. The trope is averted with promotional items (even items that appear in another Creator/{{Valve|Software}} title such as Bill's Hat), as new models are created to fit the style of the game.
* RereleasedForFree: The game was originally commercial before it became a {{Freemium}} in 2011. ([[CrackIsCheaper The peripherals account for more than enough income as is]].)

** For Heavy's [[https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Table_Tantrum Table Tantrum]] taunt, the [[https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Bread baguette]] appears to be reused, though the can of sardines uses the same model (but different textures) as the bread ration.
