IS HANZO MAGIC?! Well are the Shimada brothers magical?
I play A LOT of Overwatch, and I’ve been wondering about this for MONTHS!!
These two seem to be the only one who I can’t tie their abilities to science or technology. All the other ultimates/abilities in the game are based on futuristic-tech. There are a few outliers who come close to some metaphysical stuff, but I can “rationalize” to myself why it is not magic.
-Mercy: can resurrect, but we know thats nano-bot stuff.
-Reaper: He has a wraith form, but what I have read about him and Mercy, i can maybe assume its a by-product of the nano-bots? Apply that same weak logic to his teleport
-Zenyatta - With his transcendence, it seems very magical too, but at the same time there is clear tech that heals people. With Zenyatta being an omnic one can assume he is “built”/”born” with that ability. [/ul]
But for Hanzo and Ginji I can make no argument other than MAGIC!!
Mind you I am not a Magic hater, quite the opposite actually. I LOVE IT SO MUCH! A few months back I was day dreaming about one day getting a magic-based hero in Overwatch. But then I was like, oh there are no real superpowers or magic, its all rooted in tech… Hashtag le-sigh. No sooner did I slump in my chair when two GIGANTIC CYON DRAGON caught my eye. And I was like, “… wait a second, is Hanzo magical? IS HANZO USEING MAGIC!?”
I am trying not to get my hopes up because I know magic can really mess with story telling if there aren’t set “rules/laws” for it. So if magic is a “can of worms” Overwatch team doesn’t want to open I can 100% respect that.
But I would LOOOOOOOOVVVVVEEEE IT if someone could confirm or deny if Shimada dragon are generated by spirt-power aka magic? :D
