Ever heard a Genji ultimate and wondered what it meant? Here is a list of what all the characters are saying in their native languages. I hope there are no mistakes but if any native speakers notice an error then please point it out. I have taken translations from Reddit and other places to compile them here. Some of the sentences are literal translations which sound a little strange. I have placed Genji and Hanzo at the top of the page as these are the most popular (in terms of wanting to understand them). The amount of people who ask “What does Genji say when he uses his ultimate?” has only been eclipsed by the amount of people asking the same thing about Hanzo.

I hope more native languages will be added as I feel it adds a lot of character and flavor to the game.,
