Background[edit | edit source]This section concerns content exclusive to the Overwatch universe.
D.Va is a former professional gamer who now uses her skills to pilot a state-of-the-art mech in defense of her homeland.
Twenty years ago, South Korea was attacked by a colossal omnic monstrosity that rose from the depths of the East China Sea. The massive, lumbering construct caused catastrophic damage to coastal cities before it was driven back beneath the waves. In response, the South Korean government developed a mechanized armored drone unit, called MEKA, to protect urban environments in future engagements with the omnic threat.
The government's fears proved to be well founded, as a disturbing pattern of attacks emerged. Every few years, the monstrosity would rise from the sea to assault South Korea and its neighbors. The omnic learned from these encounters, often reconfiguring itself in a different form and appearing with new weapons and capabilities. Each incident ended in a stalemate, with the monstrosity defeated but not destroyed.
As the omnic continued to adapt, it eventually disrupted MEKA's drone-control networks, forcing the military to place pilots in the mechs. Scrambling to find suitable candidates, the government turned to the country's professional gamers, who possessed the necessary reflexes and instincts to operate the mechs' advanced weapons systems. Top stars were drafted, including reigning world champion Hana Song, also known as "D.Va." Famous for her elite skills, D.Va was a fierce competitor who played to win at all costs, and she had a well-earned reputation for showing no mercy to her opponents.
Seeing her new mission as a game, D.Va fearlessly charges into battle alongside the rest of her MEKA unit, ready to spring to her nation's defense at a moment's notice. Recently, she has begun to stream combat operations to her adoring fans, and her growing following has turned her into a global icon.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- D.Va made her debut in Overwatch (May 2016).
- D.Va is voiced by Charlet Chung.
- D.Va hails from South Korea, and is 19 years old.
- D.Va was released on the PTR on May 8, 2017.
- Fiery D.Va is reminiscent of Asuka and Eva-02 from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
- Major D.Va is reminiscent of the Major and a Tachikoma from Ghost in the Shell.
- D.Va's MEKAfall talent is a reference to the Titanfall franchise.
- D.Va's dance animation uses choreography from the song "Cheer Up" by South Korean girl group Twice.
- D.Va's taunt animation uses choreography from "TT", also by Twice.
- D.Va's home screen music used part of a soundtrack from Overwatch's Year of The Rooster event trailer.
- Bunny Hop's internal name is "K-pop Ultimate".
- Lead Hero Designer Kent-Erik Hagman revealed that the mech portion of D.Va uses similar tech to Lt. Morales's Medivac. It was an easy, readily available method of attaching one hero to another. In hindsight, the developers wish they'd used the same method to link Cho and Gall together. D.Va's Big Shot heroic was different during playtesting: she had a Stun Gun in Pilot Mode, allowing her player to trap an enemy in a Self Destruct. In the end, that wasn't very fun.
