The Giant Bread Monster is the main antagonist from the 2014 animated short "Expiration Date", a promotional feature for the 2007 video game Team Fortress 2. It is a giant loaf of bread that was mutated by Soldier using Engineer's teleporter.


Using bread, Medic and the Engineer experiment on the teleporter and find that the teleporters create tumors in the bread. Soldier is angry that they cannot teleport bread, and engineer tells him that he can teleport as much bread as he would like, as they all likely had tumors and would die in the next three days. Engineer and Medic continue to experiment, and discover that hen bread is teleported repeatedly, the tumors mutate and bring the bread to life, creating feral, vicious monsters with sharp teeth. They eventually find out that the effects only happen to bread, that all of them are fine and healthy, and nothing will go wrong as long as they do not teleport bread. Soldier then says that he has done nothing but teleport bread for three days, resulting in the Giant Bread Monster: a massive, tentacled beast that attacks the base and tries to kill all of the mercenaries.

The mercenaries attempt to fight the Bread Monster, with Heavy and Medic attempting to gun it down, Engineer building a sentry gun, Pyro lighting it on fire, and Sniper shooting its tentacles. Scout and Miss Pauling are able to wire a bomb to destroy the monster. However, when the way is shut, Scout and Miss Pauling jump into the monster's mouth just before the bomb goes off, killing it and saving themselves and the base.
