It’s no secret that D.Va, the 19-year-old Korean and former professional gamer, has been the main attraction ever since Overwatch made a first appearance in 2016. Unlikely enough, Hana Song was sought after by the community like many female anime characters. It’s not uncommon for anime fans or gamers to develop a harmless crush on a fictional anime character, but especially when it comes to D.Va, it’s not entirely appropriate for Overwatch fans to pine after her. After all, she’s 19. Apparently, Blizzard made the decision to give Hana Song a mature, grown-up, voluptuous model, so the blame can’t fall entirely on the audience, but after Kotaku reported that D.Va started appearing searches of Pornhub, it was safe to assume that someone, somewhere, might have taken things a little too far.

While D.Va finally achieved her dream of world fame, no one could have ever expected this, but anything can happen with Overwatch. On the one hand, there are technical issues that go beyond the launch, and on the other hand, D.Va has made history on Pornhub. Who will guess it?
