New video game femme fatale D.Va now leading Pornhub’s search trends


A video game character is currently one of Pornhub’s most popular searches.

Two weeks after the long-awaited Overwatch 2 dropped, one of the game’s female heros, D.Va, has found a new audience on the porn site.

Early Tuesday, according to Kotaku, the character — who creator Blizzard praised for “her nimble reflexes and quick thinking to pilot a state-of-the-art mech in defense of her homeland” — temporarily outranked adult film stars like Valerie Kay or Nina Kayy.

To be clear, the trending search is actually spelled out as “overwatch dva,” as users were seemingly too eager to include the period in her name. The searches lead to pornographic videos of either live actresses dressed up like the character or of manipulated CGI clips of the character having sex, made by third parties.

D.Va also topped niche search topics, such as “Tesla” and “pumpkin” earlier on. But at the time of publication, has bumped back down to fourth place.

The sequel has been quite popular on the site since its troubled release, with videos featuring look-a-likes of other female characters Brigitte and Ashe also showing up.

The game’s Oct. 4 release was plagued with long queue times, a chat bug that randomly purchased skins, and its then-mandatory two-factor phone authentication that kept players with prepaid phone plans from playing the game, Kotaku reported.

Overwatch has existed on adult sites since 2016 but the sequel’s release of the free-to-play sequel seemingly contributed to its revival.

Last year, D.Va came in at number two for top searched video games character, shortly behind Lara Croft, who stole the top spot.
