Hero Quote Audio
  • Zenyatta: Tell me your thoughts, my friend.
  • Bastion: *Various beeps*
  • Zenyatta: I believe that you could find peace. If you were to search within yourself.
  • Doomfist: What is tranquility but stagnation?
  • Zenyatta: It is good to fight alongside one of my brightest pupils.
  • Genji: And you, master.


  • Genji: I am grateful to be here, my master.

(or, if Genji has Oni or any Young skins equiped)

  • Genji : That was another life.

▶️ ▶️

  • Zenyatta: Even the teacher can learn from his student.
  • Zenyatta: I sense within you the same rage that once consumed your brother.
  • Hanzo: We are nothing alike!

▶️ ▶️

  • Mercy: Zenyatta, I must admit, I do not understand how your healing works.
  • Zenyatta: And I do not understand much of how you heal, Dr. Ziegler. I suppose we must all take some things on faith.
  • Moira: I must know how your technology functions.
  • Zenyatta: Existence is mysterious, isn't it?
  • Zenyatta: Do you have any dreams, my friend?
  • Orisa: I do not dream as humans do. But it is my desire to become the hero Efi believes that I am.


  • Orisa: Tekhartha Zenyatta, I wish to learn about the Iris.
  • Zenyatta: I would be happy to teach you. It is rare that I meet one with such an unformed mind.


  • Pharah: An omnic in my squad took his own life, rather than be controlled by an AI.
  • Zenyatta: A noble, but tragic sacrifice. I hope that you will honour it.
  • Zenyatta: Symmetra, you speak of law and of order, but you must know that life is chaotic by its very nature.
  • Symmetra: Hmph. To be lectured about chaos and disorder from a machine.
  • Symmetra:  What can you know of life?
  • Zenyatta: Only that which I have observed, experienced and processed. All is one within the Iris.
  • Tracer: Wow. It's an honor to meet a member of the Shambali. Mondatta was an inspiration to me.
  • Zenyatta: To us all. I miss him greatly.


Wrecking Ball
  • Wrecking Ball: *Squeaks*
  • Zenyatta: Indeed my friend, indeed...
  • Zarya: I've got my eye on you, omnic.
  • Zenyatta: And I will watch your back in turn.


Map Quote Audio
  • Zenyatta: So this is where you grew up? You must show me around.
  • Genji: That was another life
King's Row If only human and omnic could learn to live in peace here... ▶️
Turing Green. My brother's dream, but not to be. ▶️
  • Genji: Does the suffering of the omnics here trouble you, Master?
  • Zenyatta: It does. My brother, Mondatta, gave much to improve their lives, but it was not to be.


Junkertown (on defense) It is sad to see a place that might have known peace reduced to this.
Nepal It is good to return, but am I still welcome here? ▶️
I have not returned here for many years. I wonder if my brothers and sisters will be pleased to see me. ▶️
I can feel the embrace of the Iris so strongly here. ▶️
Numbani How wonderful! A place where omnic and human live as equals. ▶️
Oasis What a fascinating place! Can science alone unlock the path to enlightenment? ▶️
Horizon Lunar Colony An omnic on the moon is not so special. There are more robots than humans in space.
(looking through telescope) The damage doesn’t look as bad from up here. ▶️
Busan (Karaoke) The rhythm is in you if you search within.

Get down into the Iris.

Float to the beat. *hums*

Embrace the rhythm. Embrace the beat. Embrace the melody. Move your feet.

  • The line "I dreamt I was a butterfly" is a possible reference to the story "The Butterfly Dream", written by Zhuangzi, a Chinese Taoist philosopher.[1]
  • The line "Hello, world!" is a reference to the standard practice of writing this line to the screen by programmers working in a new environment or language.
  • The line "I think, therefore I am" is a reference to French philosopher, René Descartes' quote: Je pense, donc je suis. (I think, therefore I am.)
  • The line "Do I think? Does a submarine swim?" is a possible reference to the Dutch computer scientist, Edsger Wybe Dijkstra's quote: The question of whether machines can think, is about as relevant as the question of whether submarines can swim.[2]
  • The line "Death is whimsical today" is a quote from Kel'thuzad, a necromancer and lich, as heard in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. Both uses of the quote are references to a line in the 1994 film Leon: The Professional.
  • The line "Free your mind" is a quote from Matrix, pronounced by Morpheus to the main character, Neo.
  • The line "The damage doesn't look so bad from up here" when looking into the Horizon Lunar Colony telescope is a reference to C3PO in Star Wars: A New Hope.
  • The voice line "The greatest enemy, is that which lies within" (This voice line triggered after Zenyatta discorded an enemy) was secretly removed from the game after one of the patches. The reason for removing the voice line is unknown.
