Trivia[edit]

  • The original team name Hangzhou Railgun was voted by fans at the official name suggestion vote poll started by the organization, but the name was rejected by Overwatch League.[32]
  • The team's logo is a reference to the character Mikoto Misaka from the anime and manga series A Certain Scientific Railgun.[33]
    • Building on this connection and in partnership with A Certain Scientific Railgun, on August 28, 2020 Misaka Mikoto was added as an honorary fictional member with jersey number 3.[34]
