During his default Heroic highlight intro you can see him play with a bird and his hero introduction screen shows him playing with a bird that rests on his shoulder.

Is there a name of his bird? Reminds me of Archimedes, the TF2 Medic's pet bird.


The name of Bastion's bird is Ganymede. This is found in a PDF file of it mentioned here and shown here. As mentioned by @Unionhawk, there is also a highlight intro of the same name featuring Bastion's bird. Also credit to @CloudyMusic, Bastion also has a spray that features his bird and has this name.

    There's a player icon called Ganymede as well. It's the bird. – GnomeSlice Jun 29 '16 at 3:07
  • There is now also a Ganymede plushie available in the Blizzard store, along the lines of the Pepe plushie from WoW :) – Doktor J Oct 29 '16 at 16:30
