  • Mei: Bastion, you would make the perfect research assistant.
  • D.Va: Mei. I love reading your journal. I'm so jealous you get to go to all those places!
  • Mei: That's true. I guess you don't get to travel very much.

  • Mei: You're just a no-good bully. How can you even look at yourself in the mirror?
  • Junkrat: Oh, that's cold. OR
  • Junkrat: I beg your pardon, I consider myself a freedom fighter. A misunderstood one.

▶️ ▶️

  • Junkrat: Brrr. I get cold just looking at ya.

  • Mei: Hey, Cassidy, do you know what time it is?
  • Cassidy: Well, I'd say it's about... now I see what you're doing there!
  • Mei: Doctor Ziegler, I don't think you've aged a day since I last saw you.
  • Mercy: And neither have you, Mei.


  • Mercy: Mei, you haven't aged a day. What's your secret?
  • Mei: Cryostasis. But I'm not sure if I'd recommend it.

  • Mei: I suppose so, just keep that hammer to yourself.
  • Mei: Tracer, you're so amazing! You inspire me.
  • Tracer: Mei, you're the real hero.

  • Winston: That would be great! What's your opinion on the Toblestein's gravitational models?
  • Winston: Mei, if you don't have anything else going on, you should come celebrate the holidays with Tracer, Emily, Athena and me!
  • Mei: I'd love to! We could have hot pot!
  • Mei: Zarya? How can you even pick up all that weight?
  • Zarya: I lift as well as I lift because it cannot be avoided.
  • Mei: Zarya? I don't understand how you can fight in the cold wearing so little.
  • Zarya: I'll tell you my secret if you give me your coat.

Trigger Quote Audio
Datamined Whoa! That was going great... until the end. ▶️


  • The voice line Mei recites in Chinese at Volskaya Industries and Nepal is an excerpt taken from "A Song of White Snow in Farewell to Secretary Wu Going Home" by Cen Shen, a Tang Dynasty poet.
  • The voice line "You have to let it go." may be a reference to the song "Let it go" from Disney's Frozen.
    • In the German version this is replaced by Mei actually singing the final line of the "Let it go" chorus.
    • The voice line "You have to let it go." is replaced with "You have to let it snow." if the "Mei-rry" skin is equipped, which is itself a possible reference to the song "Let it snow" by Dean Martin, which is often associated with the holidays.
  • In one of Mei's voice lines she compares Winston to Sun Wukong. It is a prominent folklore character better known to the western audience as the Monkey King, or Son Goku.
  • The seasonal event Mei's Snowball Offensive exclusive elimination lines feature parodies of other heroes' lines. For example:
    • "One shot, one kill" is directly taken from Widowmaker's hero select line, presumably as an in-game reference.
    • "Cheers love, Mei's here!" is a parody of Tracer's hero select line "Cheers love, the calvary's here!"
    • "Simple Geometry" from the event is the same as Hanzo's callout for firing his Scatter Arrow.
    • "Too easy" may be a reference to one of Reaper's voice lines.
    • "Snowball delivered" is a parody of Ana's "Justice delivered" voiceline.
    • "It's only physics!" is the same as one of Winston's elimination callouts.
    • "I still love you" is the same as one of D.Va's elimination callouts.
  • "Those astronauts never found me!" - In Chinese folklore, Chang'e is the goddess of the Moon, who also lives on the moon with her rabbit companion. During a conversation between Houston Capcom and the Apollo 11 crew they mentioned her:
    • Houston: "Among the large headlines concerning Apollo this morning, is one asking that you watch for a lovely girl with a big rabbit. An ancient legend says a beautiful Chinese girl called Chang-O has been living there for 4,000 years. It seems she was banished to the Moon because she stole the pill of immortality from her husband. You might also look for her companion, a large Chinese rabbit, who is easy to spot since he is always standing on his hind feet in the shade of a cinnamon tree. The name of the rabbit is not reported."
    • Michael Collins: "Okay. We'll keep a close eye out for the bunny girl."
  • The voice line "I'm going to have to science the heck out of this!" is likely a reference to the 2015 film; The Martian, where Matt Damon's character, Mark Watney, says "I'm going to have to science the s*** outta this."
  • The voice line "我不是要针对你,别往心里去" (I wasn't aiming for you, don't take it personally.) may be a reference to the 1994 HongKong film 破壞之王 (Love on Delivery) "我不是要針對你,我是說在座各位都是垃圾" (I wasn't aiming for you,  I mean, all of you are rubbish.)
