TF2 bizarre character mythos.
A rework of an old thread of mine.
Mythos: The shared elements, characters, settings and themes in a set of works
As we know, there are a collection of bizarre characters made by fans in the Team Fortress universe, such as the likes of Vagineer and Painis Cupcake. I would like to use this thread to document these characters. If you want to contribute, either link me to the video and I'll write a description, or you can write your own description. Either way I'll make sure to accredit you for your efforts.
Painis Cupcake(Thanks to Ramzuz for Jarate Cake Duck)
Painis Cupcake was created by a fellow called RubberFruit, starting with this video. Since then, Painis Cupcake has become a fad which at least half a dozen other bizarre characters have sprung from (such as Heavydile, Popin Dumbell, Soupcrock Porkpie, Weaselcake, Jarate Cake Duck, and the list goes on and on like that).
Characteristics of Painis Cupcake include moving in disturbing ways which are actually impossible due to bone joints, gravity and other factors. Every time he moves, a clicking sound can be heard. He mostly only says two phrases. 'I am Painis Cupcake', usually when he makes his first appearance in a video. He will often confront another character within the video, and will tell them 'I will eat you', followed by his mouth slowly widening to a large grin. Usually inside of a Painis Cupcake video, the theme from Donkey Kong called "Puzzles in the Cave" will be played. If Painis Cupcake is made angry, he can enter some kind of "angry" form where he is even more dangerous then before, as documented in this video.
Civilian Heavy(A big thanks to Bionic21)
Created by an animation bug, Civilian Heavy is a silent, gliding character, as depicted in this video. He also seems capable of moving through walls. Upon punching someone, they will explode into chunky parts and instantly die. He also does not care for either team, evidence in support of this is his murder of the Medic that ubered him.
Spy Crab(A big thanks to Bionic21)
An animation bug originating from Spy. When a spy pulls out his disguise kit and looks up while crouching, he will move in a crab like manner. Valve added a taunt where Spy clacks his disguise kit like a crab's claw. Since then, Spy Crab has become a meme among Team Fortress players. Spy Crabs are often depicted as an endangered species, Medics for the cause typically protect Spy Crabs by healing them and ubering them. Footage of the Spy Crab scrounging for food can be seen here.
Odd Scout(A big thanks to Bionic21)
A bizarre depiction of Scout originating from this video, Odd Scout is depicted to be Scout, except with an incredibly elongated neck, thin arms, a wide flat chest and short stumpy legs. He is comparable to Weegee in some of his abilities, such as his ability to turn other scouts into Odd Scouts like him by staring at them, and he is also capable of making people explode by staring at them.
Humping Sniper(Thanks to Imnotbanned)
A funny looking animation caused when sniper looks up with his sniper rifle while crouching and zooms in. Doing this in a repetitive fashion causes it to look like sniper is doing a crouch thrust, as noted in this video. Less well known than the Spy Crabs.
Pimpin' Demo(Thanks to Imnotbanned and Dazbme)
Yet another strange looking animation(we've got a couple of those now), I cannot quite explain it but take a look for yourself.
Vagineer(Thanks Nellis and HeavyMetal202)
A strange counterpart to our beloved Engineer that originated in this video, Vagineer's mouth has twisted to form a shape similar to a female reproductive organ. He can fire his limbs as projectiles and regenerate them by saying "Hurr". He also speaks completely in reverse lines, making anything he says a load of nonsense. He is also capable of shooting his glove hand like a grappling hook, retrieving items or people he seizes with it with a retracting action. It is advised that you do not feed him. Most of his abilities can be shown in this video.
A strange depiction of our beloved Sniper, he is a floating torso with his hands poking out of his rear end, his other limbs are missing. Snyphurr tucks his head inside of a compartment where his neck used to be. He flips over on his side right before he reveals his face. When his face is revealed, it is similar to Medusa, where the victim looking upon him turns to stone. He also has a Facebook account. Origin video and additional information can be found here.
The Spygineer(Thank you,Cyb3r_Bully and ForeverSoldier)
The presence of this wonderous beast marked a golden age in the universe of TF2.
Nobody knows how he found us or why he came, but for a brief period in time, the universe had come full circle, and this otherwise normal Spy captured the hearts of thousands, nay, millions, with his uncanny ability to build dispensers. Loved by many, and feared by all, the Spygineer cemented himself a unique place in TF2 history. If you are confused about the origin, this is about a bug that allowed Spy to construct dispensers. Video here.
They returned for a short period of time during the 119th update, when the stars and shining planets aligned.
The Nopeineer(Thanks caber13 and chewburyjr)
Very little is understood about the Nopeineer and its strange powers, but its origin is known, however. From this video, the giraffe-like humanoid sprang forth.
The Yeahineer(Thanks caber13)
A creature that exists in polar opposite to the Nopeineer, this creature possesses turtle-like functions which causes it's neck to hide in its torso. The first encounter with this creature cannot be posted due to Steam censorship. View the previous video and check "Video Responses".
A genetically altered version of our beloved Sniper, Spyper is a Sniper/Spy composite that seemingly changes his personality by cricking his neck. He can be seen in this video here.
A scout that was corrupted by Vagineer, Vagiscout seemingly consumes items and converts them into cans of Bonk! Energy Drink. Example here.
Romantic Heavy(Credit to Piratespycrab for writing this)
In love with the scout, this socially awkward heavy is in a depression and is on the edge of suicide. However, he could be violent.
Heavy Giraffes(Cheers to Plaza)
Heavy giraffes are long necked humanoids that travel in herds. When travelling through the wild country of Dustbowl, they crush absolutely everything in their path, leaving a scar of destruction and empty minigun bullet shells. These creatures are known to have a migration pattern ranging from the first capture point to the final capture point of Dustbowl. Rare footage of the giraffe herd moving can be seen here.
A fad where a fellow known as See(mo)man says something about himself, then shows the viewer along with saying "See"? For example, "I'm in a soup can! See?" The original creator, a YouTube user called KernCore, then killed him by deleting all of his Team Fortress related videos. Seemoman was officially declared dead upon this horrible event.
Abstract Spy(Thanks BiO_MaN)
Hailing from this video, Abstract Spy is a strange mutation of Spy that has puffed up his torso and shrunk his legs. He speaks with Pyro's voice and has a tendency to float.
Scrumpy Bottle Heavy(Thanks BiO_MaN)
An experiment gone wrong, Scrumpy Bottle Heavy was created when Demoman attempted to craft Heavy's fists with a scrumpy bottle, creating a nightmarish creature that rivals even the works of H. P. Lovecraft. Originally created by Doctorheredoctor, here is the origin video.
Howard Babykiller(Thanks Ramzuz)
Another character that shared a similar fate to Seemoman, Howard Babykiller seems to be a psychologically damaged counterpart to our beloved Heavy. He carries with him a rubber duck that may possess strange powers within itself. He consumes people that disturb his duck. The original video has long been removed from the YouTubes, but you can see him here.
Alien Scout(Thanks Dr. Pineapple)
A mutated version of Scout originating from Mars, Alien scouts have broad chests and gigantic mouths, possibly adaptations to suit themselves to their hostile environment. They constantly demand dispensers. Video here(warning, long video).
Ghost Soldier(Thanks to BiO_MaN)
In a tragic event, Soldier passed away and his respawn timer broken, meaning he could never return.... in his fleshy form. Now Ghost Soldier hungers for souls. Video here.
Zombine Scout(Thanks to BiO_MaN)
Upon a mysterious respawning accident, Scout did not come back to life, but rather was mutated into a creature that hungers for brains. Video here.
Knucklehead Heavy(Thanks to BiO_MaN)
A morbid experiment by the medic, Knucklehead headpunches his victims to death. First sighting here.
Mr. Fantasheavy(Thanks to BiO_MaN and Cymen90)
A special heavy that was bombarded by cosmic rays, Mr. Fantasheavy has incredibly stretchy limbs, much to the dread of his foes.
Heavy Charger and Pyro Jockey(Thanks to Clocks(who is unfortunately banned, bless his soul))
Just when the zombie apocalypse was terrifying enough, along came a space/time rip where the Team Fortress characters became infected with the green flu. Footage of the outbreak strains can be seen here.
Limbo Heavy(Thanks to korkygov)
A heavy with an incredibly flexible back, Limbo Heavy is capable of finding spies regardless of whether they come from behind or front. Footage of him in action is here.
The Heavy Bull(Thanks to korkygov)
A heavy that has mutated metal horns, the Heavy Bull will relentlessly charge any who get in his way. Video footage here.
Soupcrock Porkpie(Thanks to AlonTavor)
A Painis Cupcakian character of the Demoman subvariety, Soupcrock Porkpie makes a continuous burping noise whenever he moves, and spins around while floating in air. He lives inside a bottle of scrumpy, and whenever he confronts someone, he tells them he is Soupcrock Porkpie, and that he is going to glue them. He also has a cat that lives inside his throat, that is equally as or more dangerous then he is. Origin video here.
Weaselcake(Thanks to AlonTavor and That_crabs_a_spy)
A Painis Cupcakian character of the Sniper subvariety, Sniper was turned into Weaselcake by a desperate experiment within the Red Team. He holds his hands on the sides of his face, and his legs stick out to his sides. He floats in the air, and is capable of removing and shrinking limbs, firing darts out of his mouth, consuming other objects and launching them as projectiles and he is capable of turning people into Jarate. He also unintentionally causes explosions by turning his head. Origin video here. He also has a friend called Odd Ball Heavy.
Demoshark(Thanks to Humanist and Techyworm)
The Demoshark is a Demoman that has somehow evolved to be suited to an aquatic lifestyle. It charges from the depths of a body of water and slices off the heads of people unfortunate enough to be near the edge of the water. Footage of the Demoshark in action can be seen here.
Fat Spy(Thanks to mogar18)
A morbidly obese version of spy, Fat Spy's fat continously ruins his grand plans. Footage here.
A angry medic that tells people to stay away from his sewer. When someone intrudes on his sewer, his head expands and he utters a cry that causes the intruder to explode. The origin video of this strange medic can be seen here.
Underground Scoot(Thanks msc204)
A mutant that lives underneath those wooden planks you keep seeing in dustbowl, Underground Scoot is an entity that is capable of extremely awkward speech. He also possesses an appetite for human flesh. Video here.
An aquatic dwelling creature of the Spy subvariety, Spyfish is thought to be a close cousin of the elusive Spy Crab. However, this species is in extreme danger because of rampant Jarate pollution in our water systems. See for yourself the carnage, and donate to help the plight of the Spyfish.
Christian Brutal Sniper(Thanks Zazier_fx)
A supposedly Christian sniper that is extremely brutal. He will kill anyone regardless of what team they are on, and he will then mutilate them, bleed them dry and make a gigantic mess everywhere. However, he seems to have a mutual friendship with one particular RED spy, and has yet to kill him. Video here.
Ooga Booga Demoman(Thanks The_crabs_a_spy)
A demoman that dances hypnotically to the "Ooga Booga" song, Ooga Booga Demoman is an extremely groovy Demoman that traveled forward in time from the 70's. His mind consuming dance can be witnessed here.
Seal Heavy(Thanks Humanist)
An extremely vicious aquatic life form, Seal Heavy absolutely decimates anything that is foolish enough to enter its territory. It can be seen here.
Heavy Sentry(Thanks BiO_MaN)
A heavy that was reverse engineered by the Engineer, it now serves as Engineer's faithful guardian. It can be seen here.
Spoys (Credit goes to Opraxius for writing this)
They can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8so1nnk8Ys
They evolved from Spycrab, and have lost their sentimental nature. Instead, they rely on aggressiveness, and they are quite territorial.
They have a strange mating procedure where they must lay their eggs in the Scoutslug which has a great interior for the Spoys' offsprings. In order to protect the offsprings even more, the mother will need to exterminate most lifeforms in a map's radius:
If you can contribute something, please don't shy away. More bios coming soon.

Vagineer can actually shoot his leg at someone, and quickly regenerate it by saying "Hurrrrr."
He speaks in reversed Enginer lines.
He can also shoot out his glove hand like a grappling hook.
AND DO NOT FEED HIM. EVER.
And don't forget the Humping Soldier. Look up and crouch over and over again with the Rocket Launcher.

Like Vagineer, he is our beloved Scout with a distorted face like a female's reproductive organ. It has no powers, it is only used to annoy.

Vagineer does one of two things to his victims. If someone has annoyed him, he will ♥♥♥♥ them and usually throw them against a wall. If he's caught offguard or he's eaten something, he will devour the victim whole or shred them to pieces THEN eat them.
