The TF2 Freaks, also known as TF2 Monsters (or GMod Monsters if made only in Garry's Mod) are bizarre creatures with incredible abilities that are made by various YouTube users from all around the world using the Team Fortress 2 models as the base.

Their history began with their debut on 31 December 2008.

A few of the most well-known TF2 Freaks pose for a portait. From top left to top right: Intelligent Heavy, Seeman, Weaselcake. From bottom left to bottom right:Christian Brutal Sniper, Painis Cupcake, BLU Vagineer.


While their appearance is often similar to the bog standard mercenaries of Team Fortress 2, TF2 Monsters are usually highly avoided by them for several reasons: most of them frequently exhibit their inhuman nature and special powers by bringing demise to the people around them (Painis Cupcake and Vagineer are infamous because of this). However, some Monsters will only attack if provoked or directly confronted (for example, Weaselcake), and others are actually rather friendly and well-mannered (such as Polite Spy or Intelligent Heavy).

Although, between the TF2 Monsters themselves it is a different story: some are actually minions of another (Snyphurr is the best known example), others hold an intense rivalry between each other (like Sewer Medic and Heavydile, both rulers of watery places), but some are also genuine friends, always lending a hand when necessary (Ninjineer and Heavy Sumo Guy, inseparable friends).

Most of the TF2 Monsters' origin in the TF2 Freak World is a mystery. Some, such as Soldine, have an arguably reasonable origin. Others are mutants or gene-splicing experiments, while some apparently came from another universe or dimension. And then there are the humans, with strange equipment, excellent fitness and/or unique skills who are considered TF2 Freaks too.

Freak or Monster?

There is a significant difference between these two terms when speaking of TF2-related creatures.

A TF2 Freak would be something that can be hardly conceivable in real life, like for example Christian Brutal Sniper, since he does not have any overtly unrealistic powers.

A TF2 Monster is something inconceivable in any realistic way, such as Weaselcake's misshapen posture and his various supernatural abilities.


Reception is very important for TF2 Freaks. Like any fictional characters they may be well-designed and popular or ill-conceived and ridiculed. The former usually succeed to become known, established characters who feature in several or more videos. The latter frequently are barely acknowledged and likely to sink into oblivion.

This wiki deals only with TF2 Freaks who are approved by the community. Poorly designed or obscure characters are generally unworthy of mention, and for good reason.

List of known TF2 Freaks

This is a list which includes recognized TF2 Freaks arranged in an alphabetical order:




























  • Vagineer is by far the oldest proper TF2 Monster - he had first appeared in a YouTube video on 31 December 2008, even though he was not properly identified and developed until several months later. Nevertheless, it was Painis Cupcake's epochal debut on 9 January 2010 which inspired the creation of a multitude of other TF2 Freaks.
  • Even though Spycrab was introduced 6 July 2008, about 6 months before Vagineer, he is not considered the oldest because his nature as a proper TF2 Monster is dubious.
  • There have been several attempts to establish a TF2 Freak ranking based on their combat power. However, given their capricious nature and extremely varied reception it is virtually impossible to create a fully objective ranking.
  • There are approximately 270 recognised TF2 Monsters.
