D.Va, the MEKA Pilot, is a ranged warrior hero from the Overwatch universe. A former pro gamer turned ace mech pilot, D.Va jet-boosts through the Nexus, relying on her powerful cannons and defensive barrier to end skirmishes with a professional's flair. D.Va is a hard-to-kill Bruiser that can peel enemies away from her allies with high disruption.

Hana Song, also known as "D.Va," is both a world champion professional gamer and a burgeoning global icon. As a member of South Korea's elite MEKA unit, she fights to protect her homeland from the colossal omnic threat lurking within the East China Sea.

Background[edit | edit source]

Overwatch 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.

See Data Page for a table of scaled values at key levels.
Mech Mode Icon.png
Mech Mode
When D.Va's Mech is destroyed, she is ejected after 0.75 seconds and can continue to fight in Pilot Mode. Destroying D.Va's Mech only awards 50% of a normal Hero's XP.

    Attack area length: 3.75
    Attack area width: 2
Pilot Mode Icon.png
Pilot Mode
Each Basic Attack reduces the cooldown of Call Mech by 0.5 seconds. As a Pilot, D.Va only awards 50% of a normal Hero's XP upon death.

  • D.Va can Mount while in Pilot Mode.
Boosters Icon.png
Q
Boosters (Mech Mode)
Cooldown: 9 / 0.5 seconds
Increases D.Va's Movement Speed by 125% for 2 seconds. Enemies that are hit take 135 damage and are knocked away.
D.Va cannot be Slowed while Boosters are active, and each enemy can only be hit once per use.

    Type: Damage / Mobility: Dash
    Scaling: 4.00%
    Affects: Enemies
    Targeting: No target
    Properties: Knockback, Mobile channel, Movement Speed buff
    Cast time: Instant
    Knockback distance: 2
    Knockback duration: 0.1875 seconds
    Reactivate: Cancel Boosters - Cancels Boosters
  • The movement speed during Boosters is calculated after the 100% baseline, and therefore is 225%, instead of 210%.
Defense Matrix Icon.png
W
Defense Matrix (Mech Mode)
Cooldown: 10 / 1.0 seconds
Channel a defensive field in the target direction for 3 seconds, reducing damage dealt by enemy Heroes inside it by 75%. The Mech can move while channeling, but cannot turn.
Damage dealt to the Mech by enemies within Defense Matrix still grants the same amount of Self-Destruct Charge.

    Type: Damage modifier: Debuff
    Scaling: -
    Affects: Enemy Heroes
    Targeting: Point target
    Properties: Area of Effect, Clamping, Mobile channel
    Cast time: 0.125+0 seconds
    Offset range: 0.5
    Lenght: 6.5
    Inner width: 2
    Outer width: 6
    Reactivate: Cancel Defense Matrix - Cancels Defense Matrix.
  • Once cast the direction D.Va is facing is locked, but is otherwise able to move freely.
  • The debuff lasts 0.3 seconds, and is reapplied every 0.0625s (reapplying refreshes the duration). So if enemies walk out of your Defense Matrix and try to deal damage immediately after, the 75% damage reduction is still applied.
  • Defense Matrix reduces the damage of enemy heroes in the area at the time. All other times or areas are redundant. E.g. if an enemy Kael'thas cast Pyroblast, use Defense Matrix on Kael’thas when the pyroblast hits.
  • Defense Matrix does not work on percentage damage abilities, vehicles and non-heroic targets like structures, minions and mercanaries.

  • Can be activated while Boosters are active, and Boosters can be deactivated after leaving the Mech.
  • If Mech has taken fatal damage Self-Destruct can not be used, unless Boosters are active.
  • Successfully casting Self-Destruct reduces Call Mech's cooldown to 4 seconds and turns D.Va's Mech into an Unkillable Heroic Pet.
  • Ejected Mech can be affected by Crowd Control, including Polymorph, and Stasis effects like Stitches' Gorge.
  • Crowd Control effects neither delay nor suppress Mech's explosion, they can only affect its position. The explosion can only be delayed by the Time Stop effect.
  • Using Self-Destruct to eject from the Mech awards no experience to enemies.
  • Attacking multiple targets at the same time does not increase charge gained.

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.
    • She is also the second Overwatch warrior hero in the game.
    • She is also the fifth Overwatch hero in the game.
  • Fiery D.Va is reminiscent of Asuka and Eva-02 from Neon Genesis Evangelion (October 1995).
  • Major D.Va is reminiscent of the Major and a Tachikoma from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (October 2002).
  • Camo D.Va is reminiscent of Quiet from Metal Gear Solid 5 (September 2015).
  • D.Va's MEKAfall talent is a reference to the Titanfall franchise (March 2014).
  • 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.
  • Bunny Hop's internal name is "K-pop Ultimate".
  • Outside of her MEKA, D.Va's Hearthstone animation has her sit down, taking out a game controller and play a game while eating a bag of nacho cheese flavored tortilla chips. Her mane flies upward during this.
  • 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.[1]
  • Goliath D.Va's key-chain accessory is a CarbotAnimations Zergling from the StarCraft series.
