A new YouTube video claims to have uncovered a “hidden” D.Va dance emote tucked away in Overwatch’s game files, but isn’t available in the game itself.

D.Va already has a dance for her Mech, but she only has one emote she can pull off when outside of it – but based on this new video, that could change.

YouTuber GRZ NGT uploaded a video of D.Va’s secret dance and it’s definitely unlike anything she has available right now.

Why are we just now finding out about this?

GRZ NGT said in the video that D.Va’s out of mech dance was added sometime between the 2018 and 2019 anniversary events.

“But for some mysterious reason they did not add it into the game,” the YouTuber said. “It is in the files, but not accessible during gameplay.”

The YouTuber was able to bring D.Va’s hidden dance to life by assembling the code outside of the game, and the results are incredible.

There definitely seems to be a K-POP influence working in the new dance, which makes sense, since D.Va is a pop star as well as a famous pro gamer and MEKA pilot.


Baby D.Va’s hidden dance would be a huge upgrade from the current “Heart” emote, which as we said, is the only emote available to her out of mech in Overwatch.

Why the heck is this not in Overwatch yet?

According to GRZ NGT the emote was added sometime between the last two anniversary events, which begs the question: why wasn’t it included for Anniversary 2019?

Blizzard does like to take their sweet time before releasing new content in any of their games, but the new D.Va dance looks ready to roll, so why it hasn’t been released to Overwatch remains a mystery.

After all the hardship and nerfs D.Va players have gone through in the last year, they definitely deserve this awesome new dance emote to become available for their favorite hero.
