Hanzo and Genji have spirit dragons for their Ultimate Attacks. But how can you explain these devastating moves from the Shimada Brothers? Are the Dragons magic? Or science? 🔔 Subscribe to TGN for daily video game videos: http://bit.ly/1KJq3G2 🔔 We love making gaming videos and we can only do it with your support.

Zenyatta has magic
USAGISHADOW (17 days ago)
i think it' Chi .... cuz if it' run in the family for generations .... maybe tec wasn't that advanced back then so ooo.

Maybe the creators want to add a bit of spiritualism to the whole science fiction that they have on, I wouldn't be against it, fwy that includes chi

Moira origin story
There is magic in overwatch it's called the iris
Dolciotti Leonardo (1 month ago)
I think Hanzo's dragonstrike is made by electricity, because it isn't solid and in hanzo's tatoo, he have some lightning drawn, or also in his skins (if i remember correctly)

Hmm I mean Zenyatta orb abilities don’t seem to have true explanation, I mean if Mondatta had zens abilities he could’ve just discorded widow or sumthin so until we get more zen lore maybe the spirit dragons could be linked to zen orbs
The magic zen's use is called the iris

The dragons are, as stated within the Dragons short, ONLY CONTROLLED BY THE *SHIMADAS*. The implication being that the dragons exist physically and the Shimada clan can call upon them as guardians to attack their enemies. The spirit world is described as a realm within our own that is beyond our perception and only visible to those who can reach inner balance and enlightenment. The Shimadas, likely being quite well versed in meditation, have learned to access the spirit world and the Dragons having chosen to align themselves with the clan. When summoned, the dragons cross over into our perception to cause damage but only to the enemies of the summoner. Thusly, you can describe the charge of the ultimates as focusing within the battle and finding the balance thru eliminating enemies. Yes, it seems overly complicated and insane but, that doesn't mean it doesn't have basis within ancient beliefs and practices that have carried on into the modern, and overwatch's future, era.

I have a question why does genji have one dragon and hanzo has 2
Origami Tesseract (1 month ago)
Perhaps thier tattoos have nano tech embedded in them. Nano tech that amplifies chi and turns it into hard light constructs. Which is a family secret and can only work with thier DNA as a biometric key. Genji's was stuck in his augmented body suite so the hard light had to be rerouted through it to his sword. The extra pressure had to be released through the valves on his shoulders. He probably times it with his jumps for extra push power which allows him to zoom around and leave those cool streaks behind his dashes.

I think that because the Japanese see dragons as gods, and because Genji and Hanzo's human life's perfectly mirrored the tale of the two dragons, that Genji and Hanzo are both Japanese Gods. If they were both gods, it would mean that their spirit dragons aren't magic, keeping Overwatch on the more scientific side of things.

You're right in the short dragons hanzo states only a shimada can control the dragons

The animated short should be a HUGE hint. Hangover and Genji are decendants of the two "dragon brothers " from back then who turned into human. Just saying

It was a nice video, and I believe that it is Chi indeed... As Hanzo said, "Only a Shimada can control the Dragons". Tis means that Nanotechnology and Hard Light is not the case, since almost anyone could control them. And if Hanzo knows that only Shimadas can summon the dragons, that must mean that there were more Shimadas before Hanzo and Genji that could summon the Dragons before them, like a century, or more? There was no nanotech or hard light 100+ years before the current events of Overwatch, but chi, chi could be discovered by a young boy, named Shimada, from a poor family 100+ years ago. That young boy used its powers to gain prestige and climb through the ranks, creating the Shimada clan we know and love today!

djwaglmuffin (2 months ago)
I theorized in a comic that Hanzo and Genji (Shimada clan) can harness a natural form of hard light and I don't think they're the only ones who can do it, either. I think under the right conditions, and with enough physical and spiritual fortitude, anyone can conjure some form of this energy. Symmetra can obviously achieve the same results, but through technology thus further summarizing that there is physics for it in the Overwatch universe.

I’m pretty sure it’s just magic
Umbra (2 months ago)
So this got me thinking on how zenyattas orbs work. I mean we know super fast cell regeneration exists in the overwatch universe but it seems to be different when it comes to zenyatta. I think the orbs could be connected to the iris. Bringing godly healing and sickness to whoever zenyatta puts an orb of harmony\discord on.We don’t know much about the iris other then the fact the omnics worship it. So maybe zenyatta being a monk of the iris would have that kind of power at his disposable. Being sort of a faith healer and wrath bringer of the iris.

is it magic that zenyatta can be immune to everything :O or is it science???
Destructor 101 (2 months ago)
Maybe the dragons are just radiation as Hanzo’s can pass through walls and damages enemies, and Genji absorbs his to perhaps give himself specific gene mutations that temporarily make him stronger.
Hanzo even said only a shimada can control the dragons

When i first saw it in the game, i thought about Gama rays. It could go through walls and through a human body and could enternally injure the body. I haven't thought it through but it could have a chance as a theory.

I feel bad I thought for hanzos storm arrow you had tap the trigger every time but I realized you could just hold it down so I’ve been abusing my R2 button for about 2 and a half weeks btw if anyone knows what’s faster taping or holding it down

uhm "all other abilities in the game are based on science an technology" geuss zenyatta transcending his physical body into spirit form to heal his allies has a reasonable explanation there right? obviously magic DOES exist in OW

If it’s hard light why does it come out of Hanzo’s arm and not the bow?

Here’s a theory: Hanzo and Genji are stand users.
