2964 ratings | 97925 views
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.

If it’s not magic than how did gengi control hanzos dragon

Maybe Japan in overwatch has more advanced science than what we've known about in the world of Overwatch. Where using spirit energy to turn an arrow into a dragon, or channel a dragon through a blade.

mabye the nano tech is related to hard light teck. just a thought
hey guys its me (26 days ago)
Original genji katana is a regular katana, as we see in the sparrow skin, so it can't be an advanced tech device, and why dragon emerges from hanzo's arm

I agree with the nano tech theory. Another thing i came up with to confirm this is their health. They have two hundred health, same as people with better armor. Hanzo is usually wearing light clothing so the nano bots are hardening or maybe act as a sort of armor to help absorb more damage than He not all would, as well as using them for their dragons

I mean if some pseudoscientific explanation is going to satisfy u and make sense to you then why not just stick with magic
adam kruse (1 month ago)
the dragons are summoned by unleashing their soul power and converting it into a visible entity.like the dragons. thats my theory

As expected TGN taking the Overwatch way to seriously. Actually I'll #MeCooper's comment from the "Is Hammond the Worst Addition to Overwatch?" video. "Yes... A mutant hamster totally doesn't fit in a world with a giant ape, undead emo, cartoonish dwarf, several robots, a centaur robot, a giant magic elf lady boy, mutant bdsm giant manpig, a robot tank r2d2 and tons of other crazy crap. Mkay?" So yeah why would it not be magic and who really cares if it is?

you forgot 1 (maybe 2) things: torbjorn (he fucking drinks lava and goes ham on his enemies. thats probably not very scientific) and mccree with his deadeye (but theres argument as to whether this is magical or just really good aim)
Saimeren (1 month ago)
I haven't watched it yet, but my theory is Nanobots. Simple as that. Hanzo has a special arrow full of them. They're contained in the head and shaft and when he shoots it they unleash and form a dragon and bombard their enemy. Genji has them in his sword. You'll notice it has a trigger.. He presses it and they come out to help him murder his enemies easier.

CHI!!!!!
Doctor DemonTM (1 month ago)
the 3rd option seems like the most logical one i thought of as well. Until anything is confirmed by blizzard that seems like the most sense. I feel that overwatch is supposed to be portrayed as this future where science and technology is hyper advanced and i would like to add that maybe the shimada brothers have created software that is able to create these amazing dragons and only the shimada clan has access to this software and technology and refuse to reveal their software to anyone, maybe they even copy righted it or something.

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

Dolciotti Leonardo (3 months 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)
TLord (3 months ago)
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 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.

Origami Tesseract (3 months 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.

Zachary Wedel (3 months ago)
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.

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 (4 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 (4 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.

Destructor 101 (4 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.
