Moira is just exceptional against Mercy as she can use her Biotic Grasp to drain the HP of Mercy instantly. In such scenarios, Mercy is totally helpless.

If however, Mercy manages to escape using her ability Guardian Angel, Moira can use the Biotic Grasp to catch her and finish the job.


Zenyatta for starters doesn’t have any self-healing abilities so, she’s not a match for the likes of Moira. If Zenyatta is low on HP, all Moira needs is to send a Biotic Orb to finish her off.
