About

Mimi-Sentry is a player model and ragdoll for Team Fortress 2 designed as an anthropomorphic, female version of the mini sentry turret. The model, designed by Steam user Mochi, was originally posted to the Steam Workshop in February 2023 and became increasingly popularized among Source Filmmaker and Garry's Mod creators over the following months, also inspiring fan art and other content.

Origin

As early as 2020, several artists online began creating anthropomorphic versions of the mini sentry from Team Fortress 2,[1] a sentry turret dropped by engineers, often depicting it as a robotic female character and referring to her as "mini sentry chan," "sentry girl" or "mini sentry tan."[2][3][4] On May 17th, 2021, Newgrounds[16] user Flyingpiggles10 posted artwork of an anthropomorphic sentry girl named Mimi, garnering over 300 views in two years (shown below).

I like to image Engie bulit sentry girls not because of wanting a wafui, but because he wants to be a dad. However scout wants that sentry to be his wafui and engineer becomes the overprotective dad or rather him going "NO scout, you can't date and have sex with my robot daughter!"
