The Heroes Wiki is an off-shot of the "Villains Wiki" and is designed to be a comprehensive database of heroes from all media - ranging from cartoon shows of old to epic dramas, movies and video-games. Heroes are an ancient traditional spanning across almost all cultures and capturing the imaginations of young and old - this wiki seeks to pay homage to those childhood fantasies as well as characters who continue to inspire us well into our adult life.
The Pyro is a mysterious mumbling pyromaniac of unknown origin in Team Fortress 2. With an unknown gender and nationality, the Pyro is undoubtedly the most arcane of the mercenaries. Judging by how this mercenary is displayed in their Meet the Team video and how the mercenaries of both teams fear this individual, the Pyro can be considered an individual/weapon that could either save or destroy the planet as far as anyone can tell.
Thanks to the fact that this entity wears a gas mask and a fire-retardant suit, little is known about this individual, save for the fact that they have a strange liking of fire at first glance. Due to their delusional behavior, the Pyro almost certainly suffers from schizophrenia, a mental illness that makes this entity fail to realize what is real and what is not.
The Pyro specializes in fighting enemies at close range using a homemade flamethrower. While its firepower is not overly impressive, the weapon does have a lasting effect, leaving enemies suffering from afterburn damage for a descent amount of time after being exposed to the flames.
Although categorized as an offensive class, the Pyro brings a few sources of utility to the battlefield. The Pyro's flamethrower is also capable of deflecting and reflecting certain projectiles such as rockets and arrows back to their senders via an action known as a compression blast (or air blast). The Pyro is also the best class for detecting enemy Spies, as the afterburner from the flamethrower exposes their invisibility cloak or even their disguise as an unsuspecting ally.

Before contributing, please read our rules and abide by them.
NO REAL WORLD EXAMPLES - in order to keep our wiki as neutral as possible we will no longer be allowing the creation of "Real World" articles, unlike fiction the real-world is rarely black and white in terms of morality and one man's "hero" can be another man's "villain" (no matter how noble they may appear). As such we have decided to stop the practice of adding real-world articles to this wiki and are now catering exclusively to fiction, folklore and theological figures.
NO FAN-FICTION - We do not allow fan-fiction on this wiki. Original content is to be kept on your user page. Only notable "fiction" (NOT OF ONES OWN MAKING) is allowed. If something is not found on KnowYourMeme.com or does not have videos on Youtube not made by the original author then it will be deleted on sight. You can create this kind of stuff on the Heroes Fanon Wiki.
Plagiarism - Any article added to this wiki must be of your own making. Articles found to be taken from other sites without permission will be deleted without warning.
