Genji players have never been accused of an abundance of brain power. Their perception in the larger Overwatch community is one of twitchy, needy energy, and every once in a while that perception proves itself true in-game.

In this clip, posted to the Overwatch subreddit Tuesday by u/Crazy4Senpai, Crazy4Senpai was loitering in a between-games lobby as Pharah and bouncing on the jump pad on Chateau Guillard. An enemy Genji approaches and starts attacking them, but they decide not to return fire.

The Genji keeps jumping around and throwing shuriken, so Crazy4Senpai takes to the air. The Genji, desperate for the kill, uses their dash to hit Crazy4Senpai in the sky, but then falls off the side of the map. They scrabble ineffectually at the rocks on the shore, but can't quite escape, and plummet to their watery death without any input from Crazy4Senpai. A pure and true self-own.
