Allusions to Warcraft in Overwatch[edit | edit source]
- Tracer's Blink ability is a likely reference to a Mage spell of very similar functionality.
- One of the characters in Fighters of the Storm resembles Garrosh Hellscream.
- Goldshire Pictures is a reference to the town of Goldshire, infamous for being a common role-playing spot. The company also bears coat of arms of Stormwind as its logo.
- Some of Junkrat's quotes mirror those of goblins.
- Kilrogg-Vision 3D is a reference to Kilrogg Deadeye, chieftain of the Bleeding Hollow clan (and who, ironically, has only one eye).
- Torbjörn's Ultimate ability, Molten Core, is named after a volcano-themed 40-man raid instance.
- Rikimaru Ramen Shop has a sign resembling a murloc, a frog-like creature. When shot, the sign lets out sounds characteristic to murlocs.
- Various objects associated with children are often decorated with cartoony depictions of murlocs, such as Timmy's cast from the Cinematic Trailer, and Alejandra's coin purse.
- The sandcrawler the attackers spawn in on Temple of Anubis has a Murloc emblazoned on the side, along with some classic Mrglrglrlgl text.
- The Murloc pictured bears great resemblance to the Bluegill Warrior Hearthstone card, with similar colourings on it's body.
- Mei's mug is designed like the head of a baby murloc.
