He was originally going to be white if you look at the concept art for him.

valve took an extensive trip to the middle east to study terrorists. the ullapool caber was actually a reference to suicide bombers, which are quite common in those ecosystems.

another fun fact is that if you use the "positive" voice command, you can actually hear him yell "assad!" in reference to bashar al-assad.

Ullapool is actually the name of a place in Scottland.

He's joking. Anyways, it was a hand grenade originally used by the German Army at the end of WWI and during WWII. Yes, it was thrown at people. Blowing it up in your hand would most likely lead to your demise as well.

The Demoman's voice actor, Gary Schwartz, also voices the Heavy class.

The beta prototype of the Demoman was supposed to have a stereotypically Scottish appearance, consisting of pale skin and red hair. It was later dropped for a black Scottish character both because the former lacked originality and because the latter was easier to differentiate from the other classes.

According to his biography, the Demoman lost his eye before being found by his real parents, but in the WAR! comic, there is a portrait of him with both eyes and his parents.
According to Bombinomicon, the Demoman lost his eye due to a magical spell to stop the Bombinomicon from possessing him. As this event occurred due to his mother asking him to get a job, it's likely this incident happened after he met his real parents.

The seal in the the portrait of the aforementioned comic states "In Regionem Caecorum Rex Est Luscus." In English, this is translated to "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king".

From what his mother has told him, his father lost both eyes by the age of 30 and maintained 26 jobs until his death.

The Demoman was originally going to have a pack of dynamite presumably instead of the Stickybomb Launcher, as referenced to in a 2006 trailer. The mechanics were similar to those of the MIRV Grenade from Team Fortress Classic.

The first BLU team Demoman resembled Alfred Nobel.

The emblem on the Demoman's arm was originally a bomb, which was later changed to a stick of dynamite. It is currently a sticky bomb as of November 19, 2010 Patch. Other in-game appearances of the logo, such as the 119th Medals or the Carouser's Capotain remain unchanged.

On several promotional posters, the Demoman features a blank patch without any logo on his arm. This can be seen on the Scream Fortress page, the Shogun page and the Australian Christmas page. This is also apparent in Meet the Demoman.

The Demoman's alternative dynamite logo is seen on the promo pages of Halloween 2009, the Demoman's page on the WAR! Update, and in Meet the Pyro.

In Poker Night at the Inventory, an image of the Demoman makes a cameo as the Jack of Hearts & Diamonds in the "Team Fortress 2" deck.

The Demoman's eyepatch and beanie make an appearance in Worms: Reloaded as one of the hats selectable for the player's worms.

The Assault class in Monday Night Combat has a promo item with the Demoman's eyepatch and beanie named "Eye Lad".

if you caber someone in mid air or just before hitting the ground after a sticky jump,
you gain so much forward momentum, you go faster than noclip.
