** The rejection of "[[WhatCouldHaveBeen Jetpack]] [[MemeticBadass Cat]]" [[https://www.gamespot.com/articles/overwatch-director-talks-abandoned-cat-hero-patchi/1100-6449176/ due to Blizzard considering it "probably too far"]] (despite the entire dev team loving it) became ''a lot'' more hilarious since the inclusion of the arguably [[UpToEleven even-sillier]] Wrecking Ball, a hamster piloting a rolling/swinging MiniMecha.

** In the opposite direction, the healer Heroes have big-time ButtMonkey status due to being under-picked and people playing them because they have to and not because they want to, and then [[SurroundedByIdiots having to maintain five players who won't get on the payload or objective, won't stay grouped up, spam their "I need healing!" lines without making an effort to come to their healers, and keep dying before they can be patched up]]. Cue fanart and memes of Mercy in particular [[INeedAFreakingDrink cleaning out a few glasses]] as a result.

** Hanzo is [[DifficultButAwesome a powerful hero in the right hands]], and [[TheLoad accomplishes virtually nothing of value]] in the wrong ones, which is to say, a ''lot'' of Hanzo players. This has led to the not-entirely-unfounded "Hanzo mains" stereotype: a player instant-locks Hanzo, claiming they "main" him, play very badly, and then [[NeverMyFault blame the rest of their team for things going wrong]], which consequently and unfortunately makes ''any'' Hanzo players easy targets even if they turn out to be good. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3W-9l-_XllM Even Jeff Kaplan himself is aware of this status]] [[https://youtu.be/3NQWP7npOSw?t=280 and occasionally pokes fun at it.]]

** If you're put to sleep by Ana's Sleep Dart, you can still use your character's voice lines, which is likely unintentional. One way to interpret this is your character [[TalkingInYourSleep talking in their sleep]].

** If you're put to sleep by Ana's Sleep Dart, you can still use your character's voice lines, which is likely unintentional. One way to interpret this is your character [[TalkingInYourSleep talking in their sleep]]. Also, if you use certain abilities just before being hit by a Sleep Dart, such as Lúcio's ''Amp It Up'', the hand motions associated with the ability persist from your point-of-view even after the dart has taken effect.


** Hanzo is such a crack shot with his bow that he doesn't need to actually hit you in the head for a headshot.


* MemeticBadass: A WhatCouldHaveBeen hero revealed at [=BlizzCon=] 2017 named Mama Hong, who appears to be a large Chinese older woman (who appears to be an {{Expy}} of the landlady from ''Film/KungFuHustle'') with [[BadassNormal no superpowers or super-gear other than her martial arts skills]]. And with her profile being cut off by the screen, only one out of her three concept abilities are listed, and it’s called [[ActionGirl “Manslaughter”]].

** From the pro scene, there's [=JJoNak=] whose playstyle turned Zenyatta from a peaceful support monk into one of the deadliest heroes in the game. To sum up just how badass he is: He often did ''more'' damage than healing, his immensely accurate aiming allows him to eliminate other players in a blink of an eye like what a good sniper would do, practically singlehandedly redefined how Zenyatta is played by causing many Zen players (even fellow pro players) to start deal more damage, and is blamed for causing a nerf[[note]]A 15% fire rate reduction on Zenyatta's right click ability[[/note]] on Zenyatta because he's ''too lethal''.


** After a disastrous reception to the first Anniversary event (viewed as being dedicated to getting players' money rather than thank them/celebrate Overwatch), the second iteration was much bigger in scope, allowign player to replay all the event modes, givign them access to all event contents for the Anniversary, makign ti truly feel liek a celebration of Overwatch's existence.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: After months of complaints about lack of healer variety following Doomfist's release, Blizzard released two healers - first Moira, then Brigitte - one after the other, alleviating a lot of them and placating many fans.

** Tracer's Anniversary-exclusive Lightning skin caught a lot of flack when it was revealed, mainly due to a lot of players finding it's blond fauxhawk hairstyle jarring and unfitting for Tracer's character design.
