* GreyAndGrayMorality: No one in Crash Maul's universe is particularly good or particularly bad (though there are some sadists on RED team), just mercenaries who kill opponents and care for their teams.

* GreyAndGrayMorality: No one in Crash Maul's universe is particularly good or particularly bad (though there are some sadists on RED team), both teams), just mercenaries who kill opponents and care for their teams.

Added DiffLines:

* RasputinianDeath: After his team gets mown down, the (not yet Epic) BLU Scout gets one from the RED team. He gets shot by a Sentry, [[DestinationDefenestration thrown out a window by Heavy]] and breaks his arm on landing, and then {{kneecapp|ing}}ed by the Sniper when he tries to run. He agonizingly drags himself back to the spawn room, where he is met by the Spy, who shoots him twice in the gut and leaves him to bleed out. [[NiceJobFixingItVillain Thanks to the RED Scout and Demoman, he gets better... and then some.]]


* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: Twice done in "Rise of the Epic Scout", as a result of Epic Scout's habit of using the enemies' weapons against them. In particular, the RED Engineer is killed by his own Sentry and the RED Spy, who had been abusing his Dead Ringer during the final battle, has the tables turned on him when the Scout steals his Dead Ringer, and is then executed by his own Enforcer.



* SmugSnake: Most of the RED Team in "Rise of the Epic Scout", particularly the RED Scout, Heavy and Spy. Yes, they did start off against (save for [[OnlySaneMan the Scout]]) a team of idiots, and they're plenty capable in combat once push comes to shove, but they're also far too confident in their advantages and continually underestimate the Epic Scout, to their detriment.



* VillainousFriendship: The RED Demoman and Scout, the ones who taunted and tortured the Epic Scout before his rise, obviously have a genuine, almost teenage-like friendship with each other.

* YourHeadASplode: Epic Scout kills the RED Engineer by trapping him beneath his own Sentry, crushing his head between the Sentry's main body and the rocket launcher barrel as it tries to reload.

Added DiffLines:

*FingerInABarrel: Epic Scout does this twice in the series using his gun to prematurely set off explosives inside of the barrels.


* {{Badass}}: The Epic Scout is a OneManArmy who can effortlessly trample entire teams of elite mercenaries and The Rabid Heavy Taming Engineer is a revolver-wielding martial artist with a pet man-bear.
** BadassNormal: The Rabid Heavy Taming Engineer is largely a "Normal" mercenary, unlike Epic Scout and his nigh-unstoppable man-bear, and yet can go toe-to-toe with Epic Scout and ''tamed'' said nigh-unstoppable man-bear. Another example is the Samurai Demo who goes toe-to-toe with the Rabid Heavy and actually manages to cut off one of his gauntlets; it's not much, but he still fares much, ''much'' better than the rest of the mooks.

* HeroicMime: The Epic Scout is almost this, as he only has a one-liner or two due to the fact he's in intense combat 90% of the time.

* HeroicMime: The Epic Scout is almost this, as he only has a one-liner or two due to the fact he's in intense combat 90% of the time. The Coyboygineer as well, who isn't shown speaking at all.


Added DiffLines:

* LetsFightLikeGentlemen: The RED Spy tosses his weapons away before making this challenge to the Epic Scout. Of course, the Spy cheats by pulling out a second knife. Epic Scout returns the favor by swiping his [[FakingTheDead Dead Ringer]].


Added DiffLines:

* ShootTheBullet: The Cowboygineer deals with a Loose Cannon-wielding Demoman by shooting a cannonball fired by the Demoman, causing it to rebound into his face and explode.


Added DiffLines:

* UnorthodoxReload: You'll never see Epic Scout reloading a gun the normal way.
* VillainBall: Instead of just shooting the BLU Scout in the head and being done with it, RED Spy lowers his gun and shoots the Scout twice in the gut before leaving him to bleed out. Needless to say, this comes back to bite him when the same Scout later becomes Epic Scout.

* SuperReflexes / DodgeTheBullet: The Epic Scout can dodge barrages of close-quarters automatic gun-fire. This superpower of his is taken to comedic proportions at the end of "Rise of the Epic Scout" where he pretty much ''teleports'' behind the Spy and somehow stole his revolver in under a milisecond.

* TheJuggernaut: Rabid Heavy repeatedly rams into normally instant-kill obstacles and snaps them in half. He's still moving (Albeit ash-gray and with all his gear gone) after being an the epicenter of a massive explosion.
* TheNoseKnows: Rabid heavy can sniff out cloaked spies.



* RollingAttack: The Rabid Heavy mimics Kano from MortalKombat early on in The Fight for Sawmill.

* RollingAttack: The Rabid Heavy mimics Kano from MortalKombat takes on straight out of [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Blanka's]] playbook early on in The Fight for Sawmill.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperStrength: Rabid Heavy's primary advantage, on top of his sheer durability, is being illogically strong. [[OneHitPolykill He punches a Pyro hard enough to send his head flying into a demoman with enough force to send his head flying into a medic]] [[UpToEleven with enough force to send that head into a heavy, whose head is embedded into the wall]].

!!The creator's work provides examples of:
*Badass: The Epic Scout is a OneManArmy who can effortlessly trample entire teams of elite mercenaries and The Rabid Heavy Taming Engineer is a revolver-wielding martial artist with a pet man-bear.
*CoolVersusAwesome: "The Fight for Sawmill" is The Epic Scout, an utterly unstoppable OneManArmy, versus The Rabid Heavy Taming Engineer, a Revolver Ocelot-esque cowboy, and his ImplacableMan bear-esque pet.
*GreyAndGrayMorality: No one in Crash Maul's universe is particularly good or particularly bad (though there are some sadists on RED team), just mercenaries who kill opponents and care for their teams.
*HealingPotion: Apparently, some scrumpy and a can of bonk not only completely heals severe bullet wounds like a medigun, it also turns people into superhuman badasses!
**Somewhat Justified as bonk is a [[ILoveNuclearPower radioactive]] energy drink.
*HeroicMime: The Epic Scout is almost this, as he only has a one-liner or two due to the fact he's in intense combat 90% of the time.
*OffscreenTeleportation: The Epic Scout's reflexes are eventually humorously exaggerated to these levels.
*OriginStory: "Rise of the Epic Scout" is about your typical underdog Scout turned into a superpowered OneManArmy.
*TheRival: The RED Spy is the only remote threat to The Epic Scout in "Rise of the Epic Scout".
*RollingAttack: The Rabid Heavy mimics Kano from MortalKombat early on in The Fight for Sawmill.
