I think that Genji is superior to Hanzo because of many reasons. First, Genji has a double jump, so he has WAY more air mobility then Hanzo. Next, Genji has his Japanese Shurikens, which travel a farther distance then Hanzo's arrows. Thirdly, Genji has his Blade Dash attack. This attack is very useful when fighting an enemy. If your enemy has low health, then you can just use his Blade Dash to finish him. Even better, if you kill an enemy, it automatically recharges.


Well, unfortunately you have not provided a basis for the debate to start from.

" Who's better: Genji or Hanzo? "
Comparative to what? In which aspect? I presume you're talking about gameplay, so not taking into consideration design, personality, voice, factor of coolness, etc. So what are they competing for? Killing? But from afar or close? Quantity of kills or how easy it is or how important the character they kill is? Better survivability? Well, on which map? And would we be talking about the match overall or each phase of Attack and/or Defense?

Because right now you're comparing a hammer to a saw. They are completely different tools that should be applied in completely different situations.

And not only that, you have not provided a case for why Genji is better (set to an unknown comparison), but you have only cited the abilities that he possesses, and not how they are better than Hanzo's for a specific purpose.

Well Genji is better in many of those categories. Gameplay, Genji is used more often and is a good choice for clutch kills. Consideration Design, Hanzo clearly got the short end of the stick. Genji is a Cyborg-Ninja-Assasin. Hanzo is just a human assasin. Personality wise, I think that category goes to Hanzo because he has a better backstory. Voice wise i think that Hanzo's voice actor did a beautiful job, but Genji's voice actor just did a slight bit better. Factor of coolness, Genji is way better because he is again, a Cyborg-Ninja-Assasin, but also he has 2 twin Katanas, Shurikens, and was taught by an awesome mentor, being Zenyatta. Genji is better at close for killing, while Hanzo is more of a sniper. Genji is one of, if not THE best counter to annoying Bastions. Genji has more survivabliity than Hanzo does because he is faster, can deflect gun shots and even ULTIMATES!!! At close range, Genji can deflect ultimates such as Tracer's, McCree's, Bations, Pharah's, Mei's, even Hanzo's


You claim that Genji is better in gameplay. But again, in which aspects? Surely you don't mean all of them, right? Because Genji is not a rival to Hanzo in terms of gameplay. They do not fill the same role and should not be used interchangeably. You should be comparing Genji to other Attackers such as Tracer, McCree, etc.
At the very least you've named a few things, so I will address them.

"[...] Genji is used more often [...]"
You have failed to provide a source for those statistics, so I will.
However, how often people use a character is only a sign to how easy to use they are, and/or how effective they might be compared to other characters who fill that role.

"[...]and is a good choice for clutch kills."
Where's the evidence for that?

And as for the design aspects, those are completely subjective and up to each person. I prefer a traditional Samurai who mastered the Yumi (Japanese Bow), so I like Hanzo better. This is a fruitless topic to debate.
