We really went all out this year. Here are 100 ships delivering the goods from all corners of all fandoms straight to your eyes. Yes, really. 100 of them. And that still barely scratched the surface. Did your OTP make the list?
Hello there fellow Overwatch fans! Welcome to hell! Now I’m sure if you’re in this fandom you’ve all seen your fair share of Overwatch ships. After all, the ship chart for this game looks something like this:
But let’s be realistic here; most of these ships are unpopular. The most common ones you’ll see are things like Mchanzo, Pharmercy, Reaper76, I could go on. The rest are brushed off to the side, reserved as people’s guilty pleasures. But you see, I am a naturally curious individual. I saw these ships hiding and the shadows and realized that this material should, nay, needed to be shared with the world! And thus I started out on my most perilous project yet.
I asked you, the community, to share with me your deepest, darkest ships, under the guise of a science project. And my god you people did not hold back. Your depravity knows no bounds. But thanks to your help I have compiled all of the data you gave me and put together a list. Yes, a list! And so I present to you, the fandom of Overwatch, a months worth of hard work. I poured sweat, blood, tears, god so many tears, into this mega shitpost, so I hope at least some of you enjoy it.
So…without further ado:
THE TOP 20 RAREST OVERWATCH SHIPS (part ½):
#20. Zarya X Lynx17
A fun little ship that no doubt came about after the release of the Zarya comic. Though Lynx17 isn’t an actual playable character it appears he still made an impression! An interesting ship indeed!
#19. Mei X D.Va
Our two favorite Asian women together at last! I don’t know what the official ship name for this is but I vote for SnowBunny!
#18. Mercy X Roadhog
Get ready to see a whole lot of Roadhog on this list, just FYI. Let’s ignore the massive proportion difference between the two in this picture. I would make a clever “when pigs fly” reference but I’m only 3 ships in and I’m already running out of things to say in these descriptions. Moving on!
#17. Reaper X Lucio
Death metal? Die Ribbit??? Yeah I can’t even imagine what the ship name for this would be. The most positive guy in the game matched with the most negative guy. Opposites attract and all that Jazz.
#16. Phara X Junkrat
I’ve seen both Phara and Junkrat shipped with a lot of people, but I’ve never seen them shipped together! ….And that’s all I have to say about that!
#15. Reaper X Symmetra
(She falls in love with the Reaper, not the man he was.)
The edgelord and the salt queen! Now this is what I call a power couple! Since the image quality is a bit low I went ahead and typed what the message said so you all could read it. I’ll make sure to do this with some of the submissions that are harder to read!
#14. Zenyatta X Sombra
Didn’t know this was a thing! Didn’t know a lot of these were things! It’s definitely been an….informative past month. The ever calm monk and the fiery hacker! Viva la Iris!
#13. Doomfist X McCree
Well well well. I’ve seen McCree shipped with a lot of people, and I mean a lot. But I’ve never seen him shipped with Doomfist! Really unearthing new ground with this project. As for not telling anybody…well I think it’s a bit obvious by now that’s not happening. I would say I’m sorry but I’m laughing too hard.
#12. Hanzo X Reaper
Dark and brooding meets…dark and brooding. Honestly these two characters are so similar I’m surprised I haven’t seen more of this ship before. A match made in Edgy heaven.
#11 Doomfist X Zenyatta
The keeper of peace and harbinger of war. I’ll admit the contrast some of these ships present are interesting in and of themselves.
This concludes the first half of this project! We’ve had some fun delving into odd ships, but shits about to hit the fan cuz we’re reaching the top 10! We’re exiting the realm of “rare ships” and getting into the “…wtf ships”! Hike your panties up ma bois we’re in for a rough ride!!!
TOP 20 RAREST OVERWATCH SHIPS (part 2/2):
#10. Roadhog X Zarya
We’ve hit the top 10! How exciting! I won’t lie, I’m tired of doing these descriptions! I’ll let you guys talk amongst yourselves on how you feel about this one. Moving on!
#9. Reinhardt X Widowmaker
Can we call this ship Iron spider? And yes that’s a Spider-Man reference. Shut up, I like Spider-Man.
#8. Hanzo X Winston
NO TAKE BACKS! I HAD TO DRAW THIS SHIT SO YOU HAVE TO SEE IT!!! FEEL MY PAIN!
#7. Moira X Tracer
The scientist and the new recruit! I’ve no doubt Moira would experiment on her a lot. Is that a double entendre? I’ll let you decide!
#6. Hanzo X Roadhog
(Scale and tusk…love them not as like a romantic ship but a platonic supportive one. I can see them building motorcycles together and drinking at a local dive bar with good food)
This ship has quiet the description to go along with it. It sounds like Hanzo has found himself an emotional support hog. Wether or not you see it as platonic or romantic, the concept is funny as hell.
#5. Bastion X Brigitte
(My rareship is called IRONCLAD. They look at each other in the hero gallery. She asked how he likes his new armor her father gave him. They keep each other safe in a fire fight, him taking on tanks and range, her taking on flankers and CQC. They are both self sufficient both in game and lore. So regardless if you consider them as friends, siblings, or lovers kinda like the McSombra ship can go any of those three ways, that’s my favorite.)
VERY long description attached to this submission! I honestly have nothing else to add!
#4. Moira X Hanzo
Yup, that makes no sense! But we’re not here to make sense, we’re here to make shit! Can you believe I spent a month on this?!
#3. Lucio X Torbjörn
I drew this. Yup. I sat down and I drew Lucio X Torbjörn. Are we all happy now?
#2. Moira X Roadhog
I legitimately only did this one because of the name.
Aaaaaaaaaand we’re finally here! We’ve made it to the number 1, the rarest, most wtf ship possible! But before we get to that I would like to recognize all the people who submitted but didn’t quite make the cut for this little science project of mine. So here are the…!
Sure hope you can read those pixels! Anyways, moving on to the star of the show, the NUMBER 1 RARE/WTF SHIP OF ALL TIME….
And there you have it folks! The top 20 rarest Overwatch ships! Thank you to everyone who played along and submitted to this project. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to lie down and never think about this post again. Thank you and goodnight!!!!
TIME for a little lady love!!! I think this is my favorite f/f ship in the series so far! (Again tho, I’m a huge multi shipper so most of the ships are adorable in my opinion.) ADDITIONALLY I ADORE Momo, I think she’s the character, personality wise (tied with Tamaki), I feel like I can relate to the most.
Maybe I understand if you do it when talking about smut but if you do it only when talking about a gay couple or when the couple isn’t doing anything actually sinful than please don’t. Stop associating being gay with doing something wrong
