Kids Are Using “Hanzo Main” as an Insult in Schools
Overwatch is one of the most popular multiplayer shooters of our time. Developed by Blizzard, this game is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. There are a handful of characters to choose from and they are tasked to push a payload to reach a certain location and win the game.
It is simple and addictive which is why it has millions of players going through the same motions over and over. However, you can only win a game comfortably if your team dynamic and composition is on spot. Otherwise, you will have issues, Overwatch is a true team based game.
But there are those who prefer being the lone wolf or choosing a character that does not fit with the team’s composition. Such players usually select the same character for every match which becomes frustrating for the entire team. Selecting the same character as your main is referred to as “maining” in Overwatch. It is an insult to call someone a “main” e.g Tracer Main, Soldier 76 Main etc.
You expect some insults in the comments section within the game but recently something surprisingly hilarious happened at a child’s school.
A kid got her pencil stolen by another child; she got so mad but instead of pulling hair or hitting the other child, this girl used “Hanzo Main” as an insult to vent her anger. The teacher had no idea what that meant but she could understand that “Hanzo Main” is used an insult by the little girl.
Long story short, the little girl got in trouble at school for using “Hanzo Main” as an insult.
My daughter got in trouble for calling a kid who stole her pencil a Hanzo main. My husband and I have been laughing for half an hour. pic.twitter.com/Y1vDfGZZpA

If I ever had kids, this is what I want them to be like.
