Doomfist[edit source]

Started up a preliminary Doomfist article now that there are enough details to clearly mark the identity and recent history of the current bearer of the title. Even though it's all but certain that Akande Ogundimu is "the Successor" and is the Doomfist who was defeated by Winston (as it's clearly his guantlet -- the gauntlet he reclaimed from Numbani -- on the poster), I've used the phrase "presumably" and "possibly" until it's overtly confirmed that Ogundimu is indeed the Successor.

Nice work! :D - TheModster (talk) 21:28, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

suggested switching two icons to match in-game descriptions.[edit source]

The icons for Doomfist's Seismic Slam and Meteor Strike are different on Blizzard's official hero page and on this wiki page than they are in game. I would switch the two icons so that they match what appears in-game, and not on the page.

Icon on homepage[edit source]

Isn't the icon his in-game model when it should be a crop of his concept art? -superduper

The icon looks like it's taken straight from the PlayOverwatch website. Blizz usually uses the concept art for these icons, but this is the first time they used the 3d model. We usually try to stay consistent with the official site, so I'd rather not try to crop the concept art just yet. - TheModster (talk) 22:16, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Other VAs[edit source]

Could someone add the non-English Va's to the "Voice" section, please?

"Shield"---->Barrier[edit source]

I suggest adding Barrier concept to Lucio's and Doomfist's instead of "Shield" and at "Hit-Points" page.

Why?: 1. Barrier don't stack with shield or armor. 2. Barriers stack together. 3. Unlike shield, Barrier has decay over time. 4. Ingame, Barrier has a diferent colour on health bar than shield and armor. 5. Barrier take damage even over shield. 6. Shield can be healed, Barrier can't. 7. Shield and armor (except Brigitte Repair Pack) are permanent, Barrier temporary. 8. Despite there is a temporary armor, Brigitte Repair Pack, it works like a bonus armor and disappears instantly when expires. As mentioned above, Barrier has decay over time.

Doomfist Fight[edit source]

Okay, I checked again. Signs that it's Numbani:

  • Architecture and aesthetic is the same.
  • Axiom is present (which so far is only known to operate in Numbani and Sydney)
  • Definitely not Japan (there's a "National Museum" in the background - I doubt a national Japanese museum would use non-kanji writing). There's kanji writing underneath it, but it's not the main sign. I also doubt that Japan is overflowing with palm trees.
  • There's one Japanese sign, and in the next frame, we have "Seafood Restaurant." Then some more Japanese, then "Meteor." Then "Sigma."
  • Going back over Numbani, Numbani has "Sigma," "Axiom," and a museum. Granted, this is the "National Museum" not "Numbani Heritage Museum."

Basically, there's all the signs of it being in Numbani, ranging from the architecture to the signs. I certainly can't see it being in Japan, because while there's some kanji, the amount is dwarfed by the English writing. And while not evidence in of itself, there is the fact that Numbani has the 'Doomfist theme,' so to speak, holding exhbits on the Doomfists, as well as storing his gauntlet.--Hawki (talk) 23:29, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
