The Menpo is a promotional miscellaneous item for the Soldier and Demoman. It is a fearsome black samurai mask with team-colored details on the chin and the bridge of the nose with the mask strap and other decorative elements fashioned out of cord.
It has four styles which add various facial details. "Yuurei" has team-colored striping running on both sides of the face from the nose to the cheekbone. "Obake" adds a false mustache. "Youkai" is the plainest with no additional decoration. "Azukiarai" adds a blood splotch on the left cheek.
- The Menpo was added to the game.
- The Menpo is set up for paint to be applied, but the ability to do so is disabled.
- Menpō is a particular type of Mengu or facial armor which covers the lower half of the face, specifically the entire nose and chin.
- Yūrei, Obake, Yōkai, and Azukiarai are various otherworldly spirits and phenomena from Japanese folklore.
- The Menpo's description is a reference to the film The Last Samurai in which the protagonist behaves similarly and a similar event occurs in the plot.
