Details Edit

While his ultimate ability is activated, Genji's Shurikens are replaced with his blade. Genji can swing once per second, and it takes 1 second to unsheath and resheath the sword. Both Swift Strike and Deflect can be used during this time; Swift Strike's cooldown is reset upon activating this ability.

Player-controlled Genji and an enemy Genji will shout "龍神の剣を喰らえ!" while an allied Genji will shout "The dragon becomes me!"

Trivia Edit

  • The Dragonblade is also known as 竜一文字, Genji's personal weapon, which no one else has ever been allowed to examine or repair.[1]
  • When Genji's skills were first introduced, the ability's shout was formerly "龍撃剣!".
  • Genji's Oni skin had a different ultimate quote which did not make it into in the game: "我に宿る龍よ!" [2]

Patch changesEdit

  • Overwatchemblem black April 27, 2017 Patch: Fixed a bug that gave Genji’s Dragonblade ability a slightly increased swing speed while at a higher latency. Dragonblade’s default swing speed has been slightly increased to compensate. Fixed a bug that prevented Genji’s Dragonblade ability from registering hits correctly
  • Overwatchemblem black September 1, 2016 Patch: Duration of Genji's ultimate has been reduced from 8 seconds to 6 seconds
