Question about Height

General Discussion
This may seem a bit oddball of a thing to ask, but I was curious--what is each character's height? There's several characters on the wiki that are missing this information and, for sake of completeness, I'd like to know. (I fully admit, this bothers me more than it probably should)
I demand a 4'10 non-dwarf character that I can relate to.
2.23 m/7'4" - Reinhardt
2.2 m/7'3" - Bastion
2.2 m/7'3" (upright) - Winston
2.2 m/7'3" - Roadhog
1.95 m/6'6" - Junkrat
1.95 m/6'5" - Zarya
1.85 m/6'1" - Reaper
1.85 m/6'1" - Soldier: 76
1.85 m/6'1" - McCree
1.8 m/5'11" - Pharah
1.75 m/5'9" - Widowmaker
1.73 m/5'8" - Hanzo
1.72 m/5'8" - Zenyatta
1.7 m/5'7'' - Genji
1.7 m/5'7" - Mercy
1.7 m/5'7" - Symmetra
1.66 m/5'5'' - D.Va
1.62 m/5'4" - Tracer
1.6 m/5'3" - Lúcio
1.6 m/5'3'' - Mei
1.4 m/4'7" - Torbjörn
Where's the Mei? Is she taller or shorter than Torb?

<removed for language>, Junkrat's taller than Zarya?! That slouch really hides his height!

And I'm not calling you a liar, but where did you get these numbers? I know the official reference kits in the media section has most of them, but I couldn't find a listed height for Ana, Genji, Mei or D.Va there.

Said reference kits also say McCree's 6'1 and Pharah's 5'11, meaning either you mis-typed or you got your number from somewhere else.

Why is Mei the only normal height female? And...woah D.Va (and pretty much everyone) is taller than I thought! I thought she was 5'0" or 5'1" around. Hanzo and Genji are around average for men while McCree is a tall tall Texan! :D

Normal is all relative and usually dependant on where you live.

The average woman in Bosnia and Herzegovina is 5' 7 1⁄2"
In the United States it is 5'5"
China it is 5' 3 1⁄2"
Bolivia, the shortest with information, it is 4'8"

All of the women and men in the game are exceptionally tall really, so it is no surprise that the woman are as well. Given all manner of things about the game, this should hardly be surprising though. Also I would point out this is a AVERAGE, not a maximum, as I would say the maximum is unknowable, but probably something closest to the Guinness world record held by a Chinese woman at just under 8' 2".

Taken from here, which uses Census and etc for information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_average_human_height_worldwide

Got 'em from Reddit, so they may not be accurate. I'll fix the McError.
Damn I'm the same height as my main! (Genji)
How tall is Sombra?
Sombra and Ana are 5'5
Dva out of mech is 5'1 or 5'2

This is from my own calculations, compared to various other characters against a wall
Dva out of mech is DEFINITELY not 5'5 lmao
I think to get the best scope of junkrat's height you would have to use his puppet emote because he stands up straight during that animation.

Does Zens height include the space under his feet? Also, is he in his normal squatting position at this height?

Which Reddit Thread did you get this from? Because in-game it looks like Genji is taller than Hanzo when you have them standing together. At least to me...

True, but when mercy and reinhardt are standing next to each other, they are also pretty much the same height so

It's based on lore not ingame balancing stats, junkrat would be the size of a tank if he was his actual height.

They are actually the same height most of them are estimations on the reddit thing but we have arrest pictures from way back when of junkrat and raodhog so we know their height and weight
