It doesn’t take much for gamers to get excited about a new Overwatch character. It takes even less for them to immediately notice if something is off about them. Sigma, the new Overwatch hero, has some folks on the internet in an uproar over his very naked feet.
Sigma is a recent member of Talon, the shadowy league of villains that often clashes with Overwatch. He’s also a scientist who messed around with black holes and gravity, and that, unfortunately, resulted in “severe psychological damage” but also gave him the ability to control gravity around him.
Sigma wears a pretty hefty set of greenish armor. He also seems to levitate wherever he goes, and that’s probably why he opts out of wearing any sort of shoes or socks.

You know us at the Daily Dot. We’re super supportive of almost any kink imaginable, including a good foot fetish. Sigma’s feet, however, have people revealing their complicated feelings on toes.
I CANNOT UNSEE THE FEET!— Stylosa (@Stylosa) July 23, 2019
Even Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan can’t help but point out Sigma’s feet.

Some folks are commenting on Blizzard’s unique streak of horniness with Overwatch characters.
Blizz progressively amping up the foot fetish in game lmfao— Kai₄ (@_kai_ow) July 23, 2019
Sombra's shoes with toes -> Dva's summer skin with bare feet -> Sigma who has bare feet by default
Of course, one has to wonder what other characters in the Overwatch universe think of Sigma’s feet.

Actually, it’s because Sigma breathes through his feet, and therefore he cannot wear shoes,— Hannah Dwan, brat apologist (@Hoeyboey) July 23, 2019

Of course, Overwatch is a bastion of sexual exploration thanks to its fan community. For example, the healslut movement is making room for queer, kinky self-discovery and Overwatch’s queer player community is speaking out against the “scraps” they’re fed when it comes to LGBTQ representation through characters like Soldier 76 or Tracer.
- Healsluts are challenging gaming to make room for queer, kinky self-discovery
- Overwatch’s queer fans praise Soldier: 76’s coming out—but they want more than just ‘scraps’
- Everything you could ever want to know about foot fetishes
