  • "Blizzard games? That's so old-school!" is a reference to the creator and developer of Overwatch; Blizzard Entertainment.
  • "You hear me, baby? Hold together." is a reference to Han Solo's line in Star Wars: a New Hope, in the Tie Fighter attack scene.
  • "Boom shakalaka! She's on fire!" is a dual reference to the song "Fantastic Baby" by the K-Pop band "Big Bang", and Tim Kitzrow, the commentator from the NBA Jam video game series as well as NFL Blitz, MLB Slugfest, NHL Hitz and Mutant Football League.
  • The line "nallaganda / 날라간다" (when D.Va uses her boosters) is not strictly correct in Korean grammar. The correct version would be "nalaganda / 날아간다" (transliterated with a single L), but the other version is not too uncommon or awkward in everyday Korean conversations. In the Korean voice pack, however, the voice actress (different than the actress participated in the English one) does say "날아간다".
    • It is also worth noting that there's a difference in the tone each actress uses for the line. The English version may have a hint of "Watch out, Imma fly off!", while the Korean version is more like "Look at me, I'm flying!"
  • "A giant gorilla! Just like in those old video games!" is a reference to the classic arcade game Donkey Kong.
  • "Ready, player one!" is a reference to classic video game cabinets that would display this message when the player on the left side of an arcade cabinet had entered enough coins/tokens to play. Coincidentally, it also refers to the "Ready Player One" movie, which was released in 2018 (2 years after Overwatch launched), in which Overwatch character Tracer had a cameo.
  • Her pregame line in Hollywood is a reference to her appearance as an actress in Hero of My Storm.
  • "Remember me?" may be a dual reference to the song "피노키오 Pinocchio (Danger)" by f(x), and a line spoken by Furiosa, in Mad Max: Fury Road, before killing the film's villain, Immortan Joe.
  • Her interaction with Cassidy may be a reference to the movie "Back To The Future: Part III", that takes place on Old West. Marty McFly shows impressive skills at a shooting gallery. The owner asks "Just tell me one thing: Where'd you learn to shoot like that?", and he replies "7-Eleven" - In the 1980's, 7-Eleven stores (a convenience store) used to have 1 or 2 video games in the back of the store.
  • The "Master of Unlocking" quote is a reference to the original Resident Evil, which was said by character Barry Burton who advised Jill Valentine to take a lock pick when they were trapped in the mansion.
  • "Up up down down left right left right B A start!" is the "Konami Code", also known as the "Contra Code", which is a cheat code first used in the Konami game "Gradius," on the Nintendo Entertainment System. (Easter egg: This voiceline will play on playoverwatch.com when inputting this code with the arrow keys (except for start) on the website, along with multiple D.Va portraits of different sizes drifting down the screen.)
  • "Oppa's not my style." is a reference to PSY's song "Oppa Gangnam Style (강남스타일)".
  • "GG, GG. Baby, baby." is a reference to Girl's Generation's song "Gee".
  • D.Va's resurrection line "1-up!" is a reference to the 1-Up Mushroom from the Super Mario Series, which gives the player another life when they get a 1-Up Mushroom.
  • D.Va's karaoke line in Busan, "MEKA activated! Hit you with that PEW-PEW-PEW! With that PEW-PEW-PEW!" is a parody of BLACKPINK's 2018 song DDU-DU DDU-DU, where they sing "Hit you with that DDU-DU DDU-DU" in the chorus.
  • The "I'll see you at the finish line" voiceline is in the animated short Shooting Star when D.Va said that to her best friend, or her mechanic Dae-Hyun.
