Knivehand is a RED Spy cyborg TF2 Freak created by YouTube user HalBuzzkill.

His idle theme is SA Stage 4 Boss - Satori Komeiji's Theme - Satori Maiden ~ 3rd eye.

Personality and Behaviour

Knivehand is an extremely territorial TF2 Freak who is very committed to protecting the RED intelligence briefcase. Whereas he usually interacts with others in a normal manner, anyone who attempts to steal the briefcase will be targeted for immediate execution.

Generally he does not attack unprovoked, unless he spots someone on the BLU team. Moreover, he has a rivalry with Spy Krueger, which is in fact so strong Knivehand may temporarily abandon his usual activities in order to confront him.

Powers and Abilities

Due to the significant degree of robotisation, Knivehand is physically superior to regular humans, with his strength and durability greatly enhanced when compared to a normal Spy.

Half of his brain has been replaced with an advanced computer, bestowing him with increased intelligence.

His weapon arm is very flexible, allowing a considerable level of dexterity. Moreover, his knives have diamond-reinforced edges, making them capable of cutting even extremely hard materials.

Knivehand is in possession of some degree of automatic passive self-repair as evidenced in the Spy Krueger VS Knivehand tennis, wherein he repaired his nearly severed neck joint without having to actively handle it.

Faults and Weaknesses

  • Due to being mostly a machine, Knivehand is very vulnerable to electricity and electromagnetic fields.
  • He is rather slow, so agile and fast opponents may dodge his attacks relatively easily.
  • Knivehand is so determined about protecting the intelligence briefcase that when it is in danger of being stolen, he will ignore everything else whilst attempting to retrieve it.


  • Whilst Knivehand's bladed hand is the left one and conists of 5 knives welded together, Spy Krueger wears a bladed glove on his right hand. This serves as both a distinction and a similarity, and is actually a factor contributing to the rivalry between the two Spy TF2 Freaks.
