As the title of the blog post describes, Genji deflects various energy bullets from the gigantic Null Sector Mech in the Overwatch 2 Animated Short, "Zero Hour". Causing it to literally explode in the mech's face, creating a large hole in the mechanical shell of the robot.

Due to the vapor seen when Tracer jumps into the hole, I'm going to use vaporization values for the destructive values, with the high end being the vaporization value of Steel and low end being the one for Titanium.


  • Comparing Tracer's height to her foot
  • Tracer's foot width compared to the region destroyed by Genji's deflection
Comparing the Null Sector robot’s destroyed region to Tracer's foot, which I scaled to her height of 162.56 cm tall or 5’4’’.

Using this calculator for an ellipse,

A Value: 67.777777777 cm B Value: 64.7222222215 cm

Area: 13,781.313698908 cm ^ 2

Height of the hole: 8.33333333325 cm

Volume: 114,844.280823 cm ^ 3

Due to the blast blowing up both plates in between the hollow shell of the Mech’s armor, multiply the value by 2 to get 229688.561646 cm ^ 3


Density of Titanium is 4.51 g/cm ^ 3

Mass equals 1035895.41302 grams or 1035.89541302 kilograms

Latent Heat Vaporization Value for Titanium equals 8878768 joules per kilogram

Total energy equals 9197475044.47 joules or 2.198249293611377 Tons of TNT (Large Building level)


According to this website, Vaporization Energy for steel = 60117420000 j/m ^ 3 or 60117.42 J/cc

229688.561646 cc * 60117.42 j/cc

13808283729.7 joules or 3.300259017614723 Tons of TNT

Final Results

Low-End (Titanium Value): 9197475044.47 joules or 2.198249293611377 Tons of TNT (Large Building level)

High-End (Steel Value): 3808283729.7 joules or 3.300259017614723 Tons of TNT (Large Building level)
