** Confirmed for D. Va with the release of her Academy skin in 2019.


* Additionally, to make this fair on both sides, the South Korean government may realize that D.Va may have inner problems with what they're doing with her, but they have no choice. After the Omnic Crisis, the people needed an icon of courage and optimism, otherwise even if the threat was quelled, the spirit of the people falls apart from the inside. So they make D.Va to be the ManicPixieDreamGirl to ensure that the people have a brave, cheery hero to look up to or idolize so their spirits stay intact even after the threat is gone for good someday. But even so, they know by conscripting Hana Song against her will, it's a NecessaryEvil and DirtyBusiness, thus both sides do have their own issues brought about the situation.

[[WMG: Tracer can hear the music]]
In reference to what Sigma deals with. We know that the experiment that messed up Sigma and made him hear music involved tampering with a black hole. Since the Slipstream malfunctioned and caused Tracer's Chronol Dissociation, the incidents seem similar enough that maybe Tracer can hear the music too (or maybe it's a different melody because time was messed up for her instead of gravity). I would also say that Tracer didn't end up as insane as Sigma because of factors like her disposition and the fact that Winston helped anchor her back in the present. Also, maybe the song doesn't bother her as much as it does Sigma.



to:

* Wrecking Ball: Players who buy lots of unusual skins



to:

*** With several new characters, we could actually do this, focusing on Talon:
****BigBad: Doomfist
****TheDragon: Widowmaker
****EvilGenius: Sigma, maybe Junkrat, Moira, or Symmetra
****TheBrute: Reaper, maybe Roadhog
****DarkChick: Moira



** Also explains why you are fighting on locations where important events happen, but after they occurred, or do something unrelated. The computer may be simulating future fights, or simply not have data to makes up a battle in the location's current condition.

* Sigma: Players after a long session, who are getting a bit tired and loopy.

[[WMG: Bastion's AI will eventually be revealed as having a female "gender".]]
Unlike that of Zenyatta, Bastionís bio info is not given any direct gender pronouns, leaving other data to fill in that identifier. Though lacking the curvy nature common to {{Fembot}}s, the characterís construction means the chest/waist/hip proportions are closer to human females (narrow waist, wide chest and hips) than human males (wide shoulders, narrow waist and hips). Bastion also dislikes fighting unless provoked and prefers wilderness to cities, and the character's [[https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/800px-bastionchar_3605.png most-used art]] is a classic Franchise/DisneyPrincess styled pose with a bird in their hand (nature/animal-affinity and pacifism are stereotypically-female traits). Bastion being female also would even-out the male-to-female gender ratio of the 12-character lineup, to 6 males and 6 females, rather than the current 6 males, 5 females, and 1 genderless.

* '''Jossed''', Bastion is completely genderless, unlike Zenyatta and Orisa.


[[WMG: At least a portion of Talon's members are former Overwatch agents]]
It was shown that at least one of the Talon agents could have personally known [=McCree=] in the recent comic starring him. The aesthetics of Talon (operatives are clad in black gear, everyone wears face-concealing helmets) also fits that of Blackwatch, Overwatch's covert operations branch that was led by Gabriel Reyes (AKA [[spoiler: Reaper]]).
* [=McCree's=] backstory mentions elements within Blackwatch trying to take over Overwatch, and it's mentioned that there was a rebellion inside Overwatch.

* '''Confirmed''' in the "What You Left Behind" short story. Several ex-Overwatch agents have turned to Talon for work after the organization got shut down.

* Confirmed, at least with the release of Sigma.

[[WMG: Theories why Tracer did not go insane like Sigma after being violated by time and space]]
Both characters were involved in experiments gone horribly wrong that sent them through the fabric of time and space. Why didn't Tracer lose her mind?
* '''Theory 1:''' Tracer did actually go insane but recovered thanks to advanced mental health care. Contrasted to Sigma's treatment which involved immediate containment and being used as a weapon.
* '''Theory 2:''' Same as above theory, but the amount of time she spent in limbo gave her time to calm down after losing her mind, to a point where her disorder is less noticeable or damaging.
* '''Theory 3:''' [=Gravity/Space=] manipulation is more brutal on the mind than [=Time/Space=] manipulation
* '''Theory 4:''' Sigma was already mentally ill to a weak point, though not requiring serious and immediate treatment. The experiment ended up multiplying whatever minor disorders he had exponentially.
* '''Theory 5:''' The Chronal Accelerator meant to staple Tracer to one time and place also has calming properties that soften any mental illnesses she might have. When Doomfist tore it off her she starts freaking out, which may be part "Holy-Shit-I'm-About-To-Disappear", part mental disorder.


Added DiffLines:

*** I'd also include Sigma as a GeniusBruiser.



to:

** Doomfist comic shows that [[spoiler: Reaper did indeed know exactly what Sombra was up to, but didn't interfere, because neither he nor Doomfist actually wanted her dead to begin with.]]


* Now that Doomfist is out, it's clear he's THE BigBad (or at least the closest thing to a BigBad so far in game), and with the addition of Moira, here's a FiveBadBand made solely of Talon members:
** BigBad: [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Doomfist]]
** TheDragon: [[MadScientist Moira]]
** EvilGenius: [[TheCracker Sombra]]
** TheBrute: [[AxCrazy Reaper]]
** DarkChick: [[ColdSniper Widowmaker]]

* There are different models of Bastions, like for underwater or camouflage, meaning that you're technically playing as another Bastion unit if you use a different skin. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming And different kinds of birds have befriended them too.]]

In a Q&A video on WIRED's official YouTube channel, Jeff Kaplan officially revealed the one thing that each member of the playable cast has in common: they all love pineapple on their pizza. Admittedly, this is probably just a joke that shouldn't be taken 100% seriously. However, it's worth noting that, at the time of writing this, the playable cast includes three omnics.

[[WMG: Other VideoGame/LeagueOfLegend names will be used for characters]]
Since we now have two different games in two genres with characters both named Ashe, we can expect there to be other characters with the same names that could fit in here.

* Jinx could still be a BombThrowingAnarchist who'd basically just be more of a GenderFlip of Junkrat.

[[WMG: Future voice actors to be cast into the game]]
As the game gets more characters, they'll start recruiting more VAs to fill in the characters. Fill in who you want to see here.
