Overwatch Dog Names In Pop Culture
Barring Orisa's dog, canine iconography also has found its way into the game via the numerous amount of alternative costumes of "skins" that can be found in game. Hanzo Shimada, for instance, has two costumes that heavily feature canine imagery in their designs. Furthermore, these moves also give Hanzo a special ability that allows him to summon two gigantic spectral wolves that charge across the entire battlefield, dealing massive amounts of damage to foes caught in their path.
Another instance of doggy influence in Overwatch is the fact that one of the main characters in the game's story, an extremely intelligent talking gorilla named Winston, is named after one of the game designer's pet dogs. Dogs and wolves also are heavily featured in many sprays, emotes, and weapons that players acquire for certain characters and many members of the Overwatch fan base have surmised that players will eventually get to control a canine hero eventually, as new characters are consistently added to the game.
