Hanzo is one of the eight heroes in the game Overwatch. His abilities are shooting arrows
through space, which can kill enemies and pin them to walls. Hanzo’s ultimate ability,
Dragonstrike, sends out a dragon-like creature that Hanzo can control. When he activates his
ultimate on enemy players, he says “What do you know?” which means that nobody said
anything about him activating his ultimate. This is because Hanzo temporarily puts the enemy
team into silence after his ultimate has activated. What does this mean? The effects vary from
person to person depending on what character they are playing as and what ultimate type their
character has (if any). Here are some possible effects:
-The enemy team will also be unable to use emotes while Hanzo is controlling the dragon.
-The dragon’s retreat speed increases by 30% for both Hanzo and his teammates (this is for all
players on his side). The return speed does not change, which means attacks will still pierce
through the dragon.
Note: These are only suppositions based on popular legends regarding different ultimates; these
may or may not be true depending on various other factors such as the current game mode, time of day, etc (which has huge implications).
There isn’t any background information about Hanzo as the Overwatch website hasn’t revealed
much about him, and players can only know more about Hanzo’s background by themselves.
This is why the voice lines of different heroes and his Emotes also include hints, which may be
related to Hanzo’s background. Here are some of them:
To view all the voice lines including those meant for Hanzo himself , you can visit this Youtube
video (which will be updated frequently).
One of the hints is that he was an “assassin” in his clan before Widowmaker assassinated him
in Vienna. One of his Emotes, Forehead Shot , also hints at this.
Another hint is that he was once known as the “most-wanted terrorist” in China, according to
some players. The sword is also meant to represent this clue.

Zhang Yang also wrote a strange letter in his blog, saying “I have been confused about the
answer to this question for a long time.” In his letter, he included a piece of paper with strange
marks on it. After Zhang Yang’s post was published, many players from all over the world
submitted their own opinions regarding Hanzo’s true identity.
Below are the views of some players who have submitted their opinions about Hanzo’s identity,
focusing on the mark on the piece of paper.
“I believe that who is to hear this voice belongs to someone in Overwatch.” Says @KUKANICK
“The answer must be within Overwatch, I think.” @adadadadini
“Besides Blizzard, there would also have to be an additional person to hear this voice.”
“Regarding why Hanzo says ‘What do you know’, I think it has something to do with his name
(Hanzo), ‘What do you know’ is basically asking others what they don’t know. I think that the
reason Hanzo is saying this is he does not have an answer to his own question or it’s his way of thinking.” @Ominous_Ares
“Hanzo could also be Legion, a member of Overwatch. When he was speaking to reporters, he
would tell them ‘What do you know’. It could be something like that!” @chickenchaser
“The answer will be revealed in the comic book.” Says @阴间的小可怜
Below are some Chinese players’ efforts to solve the mystery of Hanzo’s identity. These are
Zhang Yang’s puzzle solutions. what does hanzo say when he ults
“This is a puzzle in which the question asked cannot be answered by anyone in Overwatch, not
even Hanzo himself. The answer to the paradox is that there isn’t any.” Says @百鬼夜行_阿尔法_卡姆
“After investigating and researching, I came to a conclusion: Hanzo and Genji are the same
person. This person is someone who had been living for over 200 years. The reason why Hanzo
and Genji look and sound similar and feel and think similarly is due to this person having lived
for more than 200 years. This person had been trying to find a girl who had the same name as
him, who had also lived for more than 200 years. The girl he wanted to find was actually his
girlfriend/wife/ mother, who had the same name as the person he was looking for.” Says
