I've seen so many Overwatch/MLP crossovers, and yet all of them disappoint me.  YOU HEAR THAT BRONIES? YOU DISAPPOINT ME! I AM DISAPPOINT!

But don't worry, I forgive you.

Not really.  Go to your room.

Anyway, I'm not super into this game, but I do know a few things so I decided to give my two cents on a good crossover idea, and here we go! Bare in mind I'm working on limited information.

Twilight Sparkle - Symmetra
Both were child prodigies, both can be a bit obsessive compulsive, and both love order.  Doesn't hurt that Symmetra's work often involves the creation of barriers, defensive strategy, and conjuring turrets.  Symmetra also seems the most mage-like of the crew, so I decided this fit best for Twilight.

Rainbow Dash - Soldier 76
I don't know, something about the way Soldier 76 carries himself just seems to fit Dash.  Very tough, brazen, and kind of mercenary.

Applejack - McCree
I imagine you guys didn't need me to make this connection.  He's basically a gunslinger cowboy from an old western film, so I felt 'why not?' Also considered Reinhardt, but decided against it.

Rarity - Widowmaker
Graceful, precise, deadly, Widowmaker is almost like what you get when you combine the Sniper and the Spy from Team Fortress 2 into one character.  She just has that air of deadliness fitting for her theme of spiders, and I felt that fit Rarity just right.

Pinkie Pie - D.Va
Giant pink mech and the ability to make it explode? I don't know, this just seemed right for Pinkie Pie for some reason, though I admit I say this partially out of a lack of a better idea.

Fluttershy - Bastion
Bronies have told me I should focus more on Fluttershy's kindness in the crossovers, and I decided this time I'll give them what they want - Fluttershy as the single most peaceful character in Overwatch (incidentally, it isn't the healer).  Actually very proud of how Flutterbastion turned out!

There ya go!

I really don't understand why people haven't talked about how ADORABLE Fluttershy as Bastion is. I love that the most, out of the others in this pic.
That being said, this is overall an amazing work

I always think Pinkie Pie is better suit for Tracer,
Metal-Kitty's avatar
Not me, but then again I like Pinkie while I find Tracer generally kind of annoying.
DaemonBomb-Inc's avatar
They both can teleport and are both VERY unpredictable. Seems like a perfect match
Metal-Kitty's avatar
Pinkie doesn't teleport, Pinkie is just weird and gets around really fast as a rule of funny.  As for predictability, Tracer is much more predictable than Pinkie - indeed if it weren't for her time powers you wouldn't be able to call her unpredictable.

Well who do YOU think is fit to bet Tracer
DaemonBomb-Inc's avatar
Wow...... EXTREMELY ironic, because............... That's who I think is fit to be D.Va!
Metal-Kitty's avatar
I don't know.  If any of the Crusaders was D.Va, I'd think it'd be Sweetie Belle.

Poor Dash. She's going to be so busy healing everyone. Do these pones have no regard for team composition? What is this, Quickplay? xD

 pinkie should be the crazy explosions guy
Metal-Kitty's avatar
Oh I agree.  I did some switching around of classes later.

Junkrat! that's It [I don't play, more of a CoD fan]
Metal-Kitty's avatar
Don't care for CoD.  Love CoD Zombies tho.  Considered doing a crossover of that.

Fan Character Flufflle Puff should be McCree because the BAMF on his belt could be replaced by POMF.

Normally, I'd say that's too silly.

But that's exactly why I love it.

Still, official characters take priority (sadly).

Pinkie + Mech = Oh my Luna, we're boned.

Bulk biceps as Road Hog.
Metal-Kitty's avatar
No, too muscular and fit compared to Roadhog's chubbier nature.
MercenaryX's avatar
What about a changling as sombra?
Metal-Kitty's avatar
Ehh, maybe? I don't know, seems to me that'd be more Trixie's thing.
MercenaryX's avatar
True that, what about anna? Celestia?
Metal-Kitty's avatar
Anna? Personally, I'm thinking Zecora, admittedly in part because of the Junkenstein's Revenge thing making her the Alchemist.
