Overwatch Heroes from YOUR country


#1

What do you think of the heroes from your country? Are they an overblown stereotype? Or do you feel they fit nicely?

I’ll start: Solider 76, Ashe, and McCree are fun heroes if you were going to make some kind of American Western Japanese Anime, but from a practical stand point, I have to say they don’t really represent the USA very well.


#2

If were going based on nationality, I have no hero from my country unless you kind of consider Norway to be a part of Sweden (Ew). Italy? Yeah no heroes either. Oh, there are also no heroes from NY for the country I was really born in.


#3

Tracer’s nice, and I really love what lore they’ve given her.

I just wonder why they got a fantastic British actress and asked her to do a mockney voice.


#4

That’s okay, you are kind of in a unique position, what can you tell us about the heroes from the countries/cultures you are familiar with, do those heroes do a fairly good job representing those said people?


#5

*crying in Canadian*

and don’t you dare say Pharah is Canadian, almost nothing about her screams Canadian.


#6

I’m somewhat naive to British accents, but is Tracer’s accent a London accent?


#7

McCree is a true American by being decked out in true all American gear.

What you talkin about?


#8

Yeah because I see men walking around dressed like McCree everyday. lol. Not even Texas do you see that.


#9

Roadhog’s not too bad for a Kiwi.


#10

i hate everything about zarya from character to VA.


#11

norway has no defense.


#13

McCree and Ashe are outdated country stereotypes. Soldier is also an American military machine stereotype, but got elevated to groundbreaking status recently so woo-hoo. Reaper is a typical edgelord, which doesn’t really have anything to do with American culture. I wish they’d give us more info on his pre-Overwatch life in LA but whatevs.

Honestly, for representing a country with as much diversity as America does, the characters we have are so wack in that department that I instead relate more to the Brazilian.


#14

I dont think anything cuz they dont exist!


#15

Except those native American skins. Also, what about her isn’t Canadian? Her skin is brown?

I’m also Canadian and I consider Pharah as such. She’s of mixed race which is literally what North America is known for, being extremely multicultural.


#16

Sombra has a decent spanish although the accent is a bit overdone at times, theres nothing else from her in particular that represents our country that couldnt apply anywhere else, since there are good hackers all around the globe


#17

The fact that only the punk skins for tracer make her say tosser and wanker is silly. any respectable English individual says those words 10 times a day.


#18

Well, there’s no Belgian hero yet (missed potential btw), so the closest is France with Widow, I guess? Well, I don’t really think that she’s really a French stereotype; no dislikable chauvenism or an extraordinary love for baguettes (outside of fanfcomics, that is). :man_shrugging:


#19

They could atleast give her some lines using rhyming slang. Let her call opponents Hellene Hunts :smiley:


#20

Well, her hairstyle is typically traditionally Egytptian and she has a wadjet painted on her face. Not very Canadian imo.


#21

But what is Canadian?

She is expressing her native culture openly and happily. Does she need to have a can of maple syrup and end her sentences with “eh”?
