Trivia[edit | edit source]

Female Crusader seen in the short
  • At the beginning before the flashback, Brigitte can be seen talking to Reinhardt, although Brigitte was not revealed as a hero until 4 months after this short was released.
  • An unnamed female Crusader featured briefly in the short has a similar hairstyle to Johanna, a Crusader from Diablo featured in Heroes of the Storm, and is a possible reference to her.
  • The voice acting for the cinematic was done in three separate sessions. The first lasted seven hours. The voice actors of Reinhardt and Balderich did their sessions together.[1]
  • Two lines were cut from the script. The first has Balderich saying to Reinhardt that he is hiding behind his armor, and asks what heartbreak he has, to which Reinhardt responds that he has none. The second interaction has Balderich telling Reinhardt that if he was his child, he'd scold him, to which Reinhardt responds that Balderich has no children.[1]

Errors[edit | edit source]

  • The Overwatch coin Balderich was given changes size between when we see him with it at the tavern and when Reinhardt places it beside him on the throne. In the tavern, it is roughly the size of a small plate and is able to just barely fit the palm of Balderich's hand, but in the castle, it is now about the size of a coaster and could easily disappear under one of his finger tips.
    • Similarly, the German soldier's drink is first shown to be average sized when it is given to him by the bartender, but then practically triples in size between shots to fit Reinhardt's massive hands.
