Hero Quote Audio
  • Torbjörn: Ana..!? We all thought you were dead!
  • Ana: Well, I had to come back. I was worried you'd get bored not being able to stick your nose in my business.
  • Ashe: With a grumpy dwarf in a Halloween costume on our side, how can we lose?
  • Torbjörn: Watch it, cow lass!

▶️ ▶️

  • Torbjörn: Baptiste, was it? How did a mercenary like yourself come by such advanced technologies?
  • Baptiste: Oh, I just make use of what I find lying around.

▶️ ▶️

  • Torbjörn: I wish we could get that Immortality Field to work on my turret.
  • Baptiste: But then our enemies would have no chance!

▶️ ▶️

  • Torbjörn: I hate working with these talking tin cans!
  • Torbjorn: Bastion, I bet you haven't had a system check in years. Who knows what kind of weird behaviors you've picked up?
  • Brigitte: Papa, what do you think of my armor?
  • Torbjörn: Not bad, not bad! I'm glad you let me add a lil' something to it.

▶️ ▶️

  • Torbjörn: Your armor seems to be working well! I guess you were right about the core integration design.
  • Brigitte: I knew you'd come around!

▶️ ▶️

  • Torbjörn: Isn't it enough to be an engineer, Brigitte?
  • Brigitte: I felt like I had to do more.
  • Torbjorn: Cassidy, what happened to your arm?
  • Cassidy: I always admired yours, figured I'd get one of my own.
  • Doomfist: Retirement suits you.
  • Torbjörn: And I think a hammer upside your face would suit you!
  • Torbjörn: *laughs* Any chance you'd let me peek under the hood of your mech?
  • D.Va: Hey! Hands off!


  • Torbjörn: Whoever built your mech did a good job. None of that AI mess.
  • D.Va: Well, if you wanna give me some upgrades, I'm all ears!


  • D.Va: My mechanic Dae-Hyun does a great job on it. I bet he'd love to meet you!
  • Junkrat: Hey Torbs! can we trade arms?
  • Torbjörn: I dont think they're compatible.
  • Junkrat: How many of you overwatch people are missing an eye?
  • Torbjörn: How many of you scoundrels are missing a leg?
  • Torbjörn: Such intriguing sonic displacement technology.
  • Lúcio: Thanks, my dad invented it. You two would get along great!

▶️ ▶️

  • Torbjörn: I was wondering...If I could have a look at your little robot?
  • Mei: I guess, just keep that hammer to yourself.
  • Torbjörn: Doc, I've been having the worst headaches.
  • Mercy: I've always said you should get your head examined
  • Mercy: Reinhardt. I don't approve of you dragging that poor girl around on your adventures.
  • Torbjörn: Angela, you should know that no one could stop Brigitte from doing something she had her mind set on. She is a Lindholm after all.

(Winter Wonderland)

  • Mercy: *sighs* Torbjörn, I miss Ingrid's apple pie at the holidays.
  • Torbjörn: *chuckles* Well, it just so happens she has some saved for you.
  • Orisa: Torbjörn Lindholm, you are responsible, in part, for my creation.
  • Torbjörn: Why does that feel like an accusation?


  • Pharah: Hey, Torbjörn, check out my new suit. Mark VI, state of the art.
  • Torbjörn: *clears throat* Jump jets, concussion rockets. Umm...Well, yes it's looking pretty good.
  • Torbjorn: You know, Fareeha, I could take a look at fixing up your suit if you'd like.
  • Pharah: And mess it up with a bunch of scrap metal bolted on the side? No thanks. I like it the way it is.
  • Torbjorn: Fareeha, any plans for the winter?
  • Pharah: I'm flying home to see my dad.


  • Pharah: I'm going to head to Canada to see my dad.
  • Torbjörn: I sometimes wonder if all that armor slows your brain down.
  • Reinhardt: Ja. And I sometimes wonder if your height is why you're always in such a bad mood. (or)
  • Reinhardt: Ah, could you say that again? Sometimes it's hard to hear you all the way down there.

▶️ ▶️

  • Torbjörn: Reinhardt. Least number of eliminations buys the post-mission drinks?
  • Reinhardt: *laughs* Let's show these kids how it's done.


  • Reinhardt: Agreed. Let the best men win!


  • Reinhardt: You always did take good care of my armor!
  • Torbjörn: Yeah, well, try to keep it in one piece this time.
  • Torbjörn: How's Brigitte doing? Keeping everything in working order?
  • Reinhardt: A knight could not ask for more from his squire!
  • Torbjörn: You need to stop telling those ridiculous stories, Reinhardt. No one believes they're real.
  • Reinhardt: Ridiculous stories?! My tales of adventure and glory are all true!
  • Torbjörn: Even the one about the mad doctor and the witch?
  • Reinhardt: Especially that one!

(Winter Wonderland)

  • Reinhardt: You know, Torbjörn, you would make an excellent Santa Claus! Ho, ho, ho!
  • Torbjörn: Maybe this year you can be the elf. I think Ingrid's been working on something.
  • Torbjörn: Reinhardt! You'd better not be filling my daughter's head with stories.
  • Reinhardt: Ah, she hardly listens to them anyways.
  • Torbjörn: Hehe, there's something on your dress.
  • Symmetra: No, there isn't.


  • Symmetra: Armor? How positively medieval.
  • Torbjörn: Last I checked, I didn't ask for your opinion. / Everyone's a critic...


  • Symmetra:  I am impressed. I would not think such crude creations actually function.
  • Torbjörn: Why, thank you! I must admit I'm surpris-...hey!
  • Torbjörn: Winston, still using that feather duster of a gun? How's that working for you?
  • Winston: Why don't you come over here and ask that again?
  • Zarya: The suffering of my people rests heavily upon your shoulders, Torbjörn.
  • Torbjörn: *sigh* Believe me, I don't need reminding.
  • Zenyatta: I hear that you have taken in an omnic, Torbjörn.
  • Torbjörn: I don't want to talk about it.

  • Several of Torbjörn's voice lines are idiomatic expressions used in Sweden (although translated to English). They generally hint at that you should always be prepared before doing something. They are:
Voice Line Swedish Meaning
You're making a chicken out of a feather. Du gör en höna av en fjäder. You're making things look much worse than they really are.
Don't get caught with your beard in the letter box. Fastna inte med skägget i brevlådan. Don't get caught (red handed/unprepared/unaware).
Let's not buy the pig while it's still in the bag. Köp inte grisen i säcken. Don't pay for something unless you can be sure you know what you will receive.
They're like a cat walking around hot porridge! De är som en katt som går runt het gröt! Taken from the Swedish idiom "Gå som katten kring het gröt – To walk like a cat around hot porridge." Trying to avoid talking about an embarrassing or difficult topic.
  • The second to last is based on a supposed situation from which the phrase 'let the cat out of the bag' came, in which people would purchase a 'pig' kept in a sack, which would turn out to instead be a cat.
  • The Halloween exclusive voice line "If you build it... they will die." is a possible reference to Engineer's achievement of the same name in Team Fortress 2. Both reference the line "If you build it, they will come" from the 1989 film "Field of Dreams."
  • "I'm giving it all I've got!" may be a reference to Scotty's catchphrase "I'm giving it all she's got!" from the original Star Trek series, as both Torbjörn and Scotty are engineers and are typically clad in red.
  • "You hear me baby? Hold together." is in reference to a line from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Han Solo says it as the Millennium Falcon is being pursued and fired upon by TIE fighters as the main characters escape the Death Star.
  • The voice line "Everyone get in here" is reference to the Hearthstone card Grim Patron
  • The voice line "Everything is awesome" references the theme song of The Lego Movie (2014)
