Zenyatta, the monk from the beloved game Overwatch, is a highly spiritual being who utilizes these powers to the very fullest. Arguably as popular a character as Chara and Flowey from Undertale, he is a harmonious healer who hopes to achieve a certain level of immunity to any damages that may befall him. He lives deep in the Himalayan Mountains along with a group of his exiled monk companions. As Zenyatta searches for a transcendental experience in his world, he spreads the lessons he learns with the viewers. Anyone who experiences Overwatch will learn more than they ever expected to and the quotes below are sure to demonstrate the wisdom that you’ll need in your own life.
Repetition is the path to mastery.
Never accept the world as it appears to be. Dare to see it for what it could be.
You must learn from your mistakes.
I wouldn’t drink the coffee; always tasted like boiled dirt. / Doesn’t feel right comin’ back here.
Open your mind.
Gaze into the Iris.
A closed mind is already defeated.
You have much to learn. (on Orisa)
In anger, you defeat only yourself.
Your weakness…is revealed!
Pass into the Iris. (hostile)
A glimpse of mastery.
Be consumed by the shadows.
There is disquiet in your soul.
Look, the people decided they were better off without us. They even called us criminals! They tore our family apart… But look around! Someone has to do something! We have to do something! We can make a difference again. The world needs us now more than ever! Are you with me?
I see a pattern developing.
Our enemies have been eliminated… but they will return.
A warrior’s greatest weapon… is patience.
Hatred is not strategy.
If you do not bend…you break.
Tell me your thoughts, my friend.
I ain’t much for waiting around. / Well, it’s high noon somewhere in the world…
Bask in the shadow of doubt.
I spent many an hour of my misspent youth here.
Time to ride off into the sunset.
The outcome is not preordained.
We walk in the shadows, my apprentice. (On Genji and If Cultist skin is equipped)
You refuse to learn.
Do not be discouraged, everyone begins in ignorance.
It’s an honor fighting by your side, ma’am.
Even old and worn, this armor can still serve its purpose. One day it may fall apart, but until that time, we will fight. Overwatch may be gone, but its legacy endures through us. We have sworn to carry on its ideals and restore hope to this troubled world, to seek out tyranny and evil wherever they take root, and bring the hammer of justice down upon the wicked. Such is our duty. Such is our righteous quest. Above all else, we will never run when people are in need, no matter how monstrous our enemies may be!
I know the doubts that plague you.
My family tells of an ancient legend about two great dragon brothers, the Dragon of the North Wind, and the Dragon of the South Wind. Together they upheld balance and harmony in the heavens. But the two brothers argued over who could better rule their land. Their quarrel turned to rage and their violent struggle darkened the skies, until the Dragon of the South Wind struck down his brother, who fell to earth, shattering the land. The Dragon of the South Wind had triumphed, but as time passed and he realised his solitude, the sweetness of victory turned to ash. For years, the bereft dragon’s grief threw the world into discord, and he knew only bitterness and sorrow. One day, a stranger called up to the dragon and asked “Oh dragon lord, why are you so distraught?” The dragon told him, “Seeking power, I killed my brother, but without him, I am lost.” The stranger replied, “You have inflicted wounds upon yourself, but now you must heal. Walk the earth on two feet as I do. Find value in humility. Then, you will find peace.” The dragon knelt upon the ground. For the first time, he was able to clearly see the world around him, and he became human. The stranger revealed himself as his fallen brother. Reunited, the two set out to rebuild what they had once destroyed.
Adversity is an opportunity for change.
Experience tranquility. (self and friendly)
Overconfidence is a flimsy shield.
The cycle begins anew.
Does the suffering of the Omnics here trouble you, master?
Consider only victory. Make defeat an impossibility in your mind.
The point is mine, you’re welcome to join me.
The enemy’s teleporter is no more.
Walk in harmony.
A temporary setback.
The turret is no more.
Darkness envelops all.
Be one with the universe.
It is good to fight alongside one of my brightest pupils.
A disciplined mind is your most dependable ally.
Pain is an excellent teacher.
We walk in harmony, my student. (on Genji)
I feel neither joy nor remorse amidst such death.
I sense within you the same rage that once consumed your brother.
There is chaos within you.
To hold a grudge is unhealthy… for you.
Time grows short. Do not let it go to waste.
We are as one, my friend.
One cannot survive on strength alone.
A lesson in humility.
A chance to focus.
My enemies fall like cherry blossoms.
The turret no longer exists.
True self is without form.
The universe shall embrace you.
You are your own worst enemy.
We are as one, my sister. (on Orisa)
Stop standin’ around and get on the point!
A closed mind is already defeated.
Free your mind.
