Sorry Blizzard, Overwatch Porn Did Dr. Ziegler Earlier AND Better

Mercy's new Dr. Ziegler skin is pretty hot, but there might be a very good reason for that.

Mercy

The new Dr. Ziegler skin for Mercy looks awfully familiar.

Earlier this week, Overwatch announced a new event to try and maintain its relevance after the news of Overwatch 2’s impending arrival. The event, called “Mercy’s Recall Challenge,” will provide players with new sprays and skins after getting wins in Quick Play, Competitive, or Arcade.

Win 3 games and you’ll get the Dr. Ziegler player icon. Get 6 wins and you’ll unlock two Dr. Ziegler sprays. But win 9 games and you’ll get the real prize, the legendary Dr. Ziegler Mercy skin.

We’ve seen Mercy in this guise before, but it’s always been in the comics before her time in Overwatch. As a doctor, she has the usual lab coat, stethoscope, eyeglasses, and nametag. Pretty much exactly how you’d picture a hot doc.

However, those that frequent a different type of website might recognize this skin from a different source. In fact, the two skins look so similar that Blizzard may have been inspired by this extremely not-safe-for-work website.

As usual, we have Pornhub to thank for bringing us this explicit version of Dr. Ziegler, which came out in 2018. Of course, we’re not able to display the video itself, but you can find it with a quick search. A helpful Twitter user has made a safe-for-work comparison.

Digging a little deeper reveals that this still image is actually from a larger set of three videos where one particularly randy Overwatch fan went to painstaking lengths to animate an anatomically correct Mercy model. Furthermore, simply searching “Overwatch Mercy” on Pornhub reveals 1,613 different videos featuring the Overwatch support healer.

Some of those are undoubtedly duplicate posts, but even if half of them are doubles, that’s still a lot of people making graphic Mercy porn.

The real scandal here is how closely the two Mercy’s appear. We’re not accusing Blizzard of plagiarism, but perhaps the creator of the original Dr. Ziegler skin was paid fairly for the use of their model in the real Overwatch a year later.

Or maybe it’s just a coincidence. Either way, enjoy the new skin!
