Trigger Quote Audio

Moy praded govorit': "Ya imeju želanie kupit', no ne imeju vozmožnosti. Ya imeju vozmožnost' kupit' kozu, no ne imeju želaniya. Tak davayte že bypbem za to, čtoby nashi žepaniya sovpadali s nashimi vozmožnostyami"!

Cyrillic: Мой прадед говорил: "Я имею желание купить дом, но не имею возможности. Я имею возможность купить козу, но не имею желания. Так давайте же выпьем за то, чтобы наши желания совпадали с нашими возможностями"!
English: My grand-grandfather used to say: I wish to buy a house, but I cannot. I can buy a goat, but I don't want to. So let's drink to our desires matching our abilities!

(Quote from Soviet comedy film “Кавказская пленница, или Новые приключения Шурика” (lit. “A captive girl from Caucasus; or, The new adventures of Shurik”, dubbed “Kidnapping, Caucasian Style”) that is well-known and loved by many Russian speakers.)

In my world, bench presses you. ▶️
In Russia, march makes you. ▶️


  • The voice line "I was born in battle!" is taken from the Heroes of the Storm version of her, which could be heard sometimes if activating Personal Barrier (W) / Issuing orders.
  • The voice line "Hit me with your best shot!" is most likely a reference to Pat Benatar's hit single of the same name, which was released in 1980.
  • The voice line "I will break you!" is probably a reference to the quote "I must break you!" by Ivan Drago from Rocky IV.
  • One of her lines spoken in Volskaya Industries is a quote by Peter Trofimov, a character from The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov.
  • The voice line "In Russia, game plays you" is a "Russian Reversal," a type of joke commonly associated with Soviet-born comedian Yakov Smirnoff.
  • The final blow line "From Russia, with love," is a reference to the 1963 James Bond film of the same name.
  • The Summer Games voice line "It's only a game, why do you have to be mad?" is a reference to a 2007 interview with Russian ice hockey goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, in response to a Canadian journalist's question regarding a controversial player transfer.
  • It's possible that the voice line "You are a credit to the team" is a reference to the Heavy from Team Fortress 2, a large Russian man who says a very similar line after taking a teleporter.
