The Internet Reacts To Hanzo’s New Skin

The Internet Reacts To Hanzo’s New Skin

Overwatch fandom is split on Hanzo’s new skin. Love it or hate it, they can’t stop drawing it and talking about it.

Hanzo’s new skin for the Overwatch winter event was inspired by a single panel in last year’s holiday comic, “Reflections.” Some fans were hoping it’d be closer to that illustration, or at least that he’d have an undercut and not a white beard. These people also take issue with the back of Hanzo’s pants.

Honestly, I am incredibly into this skin, arse dragon and all. Some of us in the Kotaku offices have been calling it “I Would” Hanzo, Daddy Hanzo or Hotzo. We are not ashamed.

Even if Hanzo’s skin is divisive, it’s a skin for a popular character in a very popular video game. The fanart and shitposts are plentiful, and here’s some of my favourites.


  • I like how his skin is named “Casual” after all the casual scrubs who pick him.
    Also the arse dragon looks like he had a massive accident that smeared the back of his pants.
    I still like it

  • Still baffled as to how Blizzard justified this skin to be a Legendary.

    It really should have been an Epic tier skin.

  • I said mole. Mole…… Mole…… MOLEY, MOLEY, MOLEY, MOLEY, MOLEY!!! My MOLEstake!! MOLE!! BLOODY MOLE!! We’re not supposed to talk about the bloody mole, but there’s a bloody mole WINKING ME IN THE FACE!! I’m gonna cut it off, chop it up, and make some guacaMOLE!!
