B.O.B. has become one of Overwatch fan’s favorite characters since his release along with Ashe at BlizzCon 2018, and now one fan has made him do highlight intros for all the game’s heroes.

As Ashe’s ultimate ability, B.O.B. flies out and lands in front of the hero before running in a straight line, hopefully towards a wall or enemies to break his stride.

But the lovable Omnic butler has become more than an ultimate ability to fans, players even successfully petitioned Blizzard to have B.O.B. included in Ashe’s golden weapon set.

Given his popularity, YouTuber GRZ NGT figured it would be a good idea to make a video of B.O.B. doing every hero's highlight intros, and it turned out to be a great plan.

Some of the intros, Bastion’s especially, look very odd and broken, simply because of the animation, but the Mercy and Mei highlight intros are pretty hilarious. There's something about B.O.B. hanging out with Mei’s robot Snowball just seems right.

B.O.B. isn’t a playable Overwatch hero, sadly, but the way he pulls off those Reinhardt and Orisa intros makes it seem like he’d do pretty well as a shield tank.

Currently, B.O.B. shows up in just one of Ashe’s highlight intros, but knowing Overwatch fan’s ravenous appetite for any and all things B.O.B., this certainly isn’t enough.

Considering all the attention B.O.B. gets compared to Ashe, you could say her sidekick is more popular than she is.

Although Ashe didn’t get any new highlight intros for Overwatch’s Winter Wonderland event, she did get a cool winter-themed skin that fans can get before the event ends on January 3, 2019.
