Added DiffLines:

* ModelDissonance: When characters' heads explode or [[OffWithHisHead are removed]], they actually shrink away into their necks (covered up with a gore effect and with a separate severed head object spawned if needed).

* According to an IC Interview with John Patrick Lowrie [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkSXpe6iaPY&feature=youtu.be]], the Sniper's first three girlfriends were sheep. He likes sheep. He doesn't like people. So he switched from shooting sheep to shooting people. Also, you can wash your car with a sheep after the date, which builds a special kind of bond.
** The Sniper also rather likes Bangkok prostitutes, because he can fit 57 cheap little Bangkok prostitutes in his mobile home.

** 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 Issue #6 is right up there with ''Half Life 3'' as Valve's longest delayed unpublished product, being ten months behind ''and counting''.

* FanNickname: More on the trope's page, and even more on the official wiki [[http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Player_terms here]].
** A Demoman wielding his melee weapon and shield is referred to as a "Demoknight" or "Sword and Board". "Targelander" and "Targe Demo" are also considered acceptable parlance for one with the Chargin' Targe and Eyelander. Likewise, a Demoman with a frying pan, Bounty Hat, shutter shades, and targe is called a [[MemeticMutation Demopan]].
** Bitter players have taken to calling the Pyro "W+ M1" (forward movement + attack) due to the (alleged) notion that the only thing you need to do to win as Pyro is charge forward.
*** His axe taunt has been called [[VideoGame/GuitarHero Guitar]] Pyro.
** Pick the Huntsman as your primary and prepare for the barrage of "Cuntsman", "Huntspam", or "Lucksman".
*** Same for "Fail-a-Nature" for Force-a-Nature.
*** The [=FaN=] is also sometimes called the "[=FaG.=]"
*** The [=FaN=] is also known as the Force-a-Knockback.
** The Direct Hit has been called the "Direct Shit" or "Direct Miss" for its [[DifficultButAwesome general lack of effectiveness in all but the right hands.]]
*** In similar fashion, the Loch-and-Load has become the "Lucks-and-Lolz" to some for its similar direct-hit-only damage style.
** A Soldier with the Frying Pan and Stainless Pot may be called a Kitchen Warrior.
** A Pyro with the Gas Jockey's Gear set and Detonator is a Det Jockey, while one with that set and the Flare Gun is a Flare Jockey.
** An Engineer with the Frontier Justice and Gunslinger is a Revengineer, named for his ability to deploy Mini-Sentries quickly, get some kills, then kill opponents with "revenge crits" after the sentry has been destroyed.
** Before the Enforcer's nerf, Spies that used the Enforcer and the Dead Ringer were known as Dr. (Dead Ringer) Enforcer Spies, since the Dead Ringer completely negated the Enforcer's original weakness.
*** When the Spy-cicle was released, Spies that used the Dead Ringer, the Enforcer, and the Spy-cicle were known as Dr. Enforcicle Spies, since the Spy-cicle had incredible synergy with the Enforcer and the Dead Ringer. This too died down with the Enforcer's nerf.
** Heavies that use Shotgun or other shotgun types as their main weapon rather than their miniguns are called "Fat Scouts".
** Engineers that build teleporter exits near the enemy base in a very hard to get to place is called a "Ninjaneer".
** Soldiers armed with the Rocket Jumper, Mantreads (or, more popularly now, the B.A.S.E Jumper) and Market Gardener are called "Trolldiers", due to relying on jumping around and landing on the enemy from above and killing them with the Gardener's crit, making the unaware completely unable to anticipate it. The loadout is also generally seen as a humiliation tactic, as it is far less effective than just the base rocket launcher, and only done when the player wants to "troll" people.
** Up until the Tough Break update removed its ability to roll for random crits, the Half-Zatoichi was known as the "Kritana".

** The fan-speculation about the Pyro's actual gender has been [[http://www.teamfortress.com/tf03_cold_day_in_hell/#f=22 lampshaded, very lightly]].
*** Two issues later, it gets poked at again. The Pyro from ''Team Fortress '''Classic''''' is a woman.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
