Meepo, the Geomancer, is a melee agility hero who is notorious for being one of the most difficult carries in the game to play effectively due to his heavy reliance on micromanagement. Meepo's defining ultimate, Divided We Stand, allows Meepo to create up to 3 additional clones of himself, (4 with the level 25 talent), each of which has its own mana and hit points, as well as individual cooldowns on Meepo's spells. The clones cannot use any items besides the boots that the main Meepo himself wears, but each clone can gain experience and gold additively with the original Meepo, allowing him to gain levels and gold extremely fast. This means that a well-played Meepo can gain experience faster than any other hero, capable of reaching maximum level extremely early into the game and overpowering his unsuspecting opponents; however, Meepo's greatest strength is also his greatest weakness, as the death of any Meepo, including the clones, spells death for all Meepos.
Individually, each Meepo is very weak, but by combining their strength and spells Meepo can overwhelm opponents with their nukes and disables. A single cast of Earthbind is little more than an inconvenience, but multiple Earthbinds chained together can allow a Meepo army to keep an enemy permanently rooted to the ground. Poof is a short-ranged area nuke by itself, but combined with the clones allows any Meepo to globally teleport to any other Meepo, and deal increasing amounts of damage when stacked together on the same target. Ransack steals a little HP with each attack itself, but combining the efforts of all clones, it can heal Meepo and all of the clones and deal heavy pure damage to a foe. With this skill set, Meepo can be everywhere on the map at once, and can group up on an unsuspecting victim in a moment's notice. Meepo redefines the power of numbers, and managed properly can overwhelm the enemy as a one-man army.
- The net travels at a speed of 900.
- Earthbind can hit units up to 720/970/1220/1470 range away (maximum cast range + radius).
- Roots the targets, preventing them from moving and casting certain mobility spells.
- The net provides 300 radius flying vision around itself as it travels. This vision does not last.
- Poof does not disjoint projectiles.
- Poof can only target self, clones and illusions of the caster.
- ↓↓ Double-tapping automatically targets self.
- Cannot directly target, but can still poof to invulnerable clones and illusions. Cannot Poof to hidden targets at all.
- When targeting ground, the Meepo closest to the target point is chosen upon cast (which can be the same Meepo who casts it).
- Poof deals its damage once at the cast location and once at the destination point.
- The damage from Poof stacks, so enemies within the cast location and destination point effectively take double the damage.
- This is how much damage Poof can deal (before reductions) when a certain number of Meepos casts it at the same spot:
to be unlocked.
- This ability is not available in Ability Draft, since is unavailable and Dig is bound to it.
- Applies a basic dispel on the caster upon finishing the channeling.
- Stuns the caster for the duration, and turns them invulnerable and unselectable.
- Any attack or abilities targeting Meepo which is already in its attack or cast animation gets canceled.
- Does not prevent Spell Reflection from reflecting abilities back at Meepo.
- Restores health in the form of health regeneration, increasing it by 10% of maximum health per second.
- Unlike most other ultimates, Divided We Stand can be leveled up at level 4/11/18 instead of 6/12/18.
- Upon leveling, the Meepo clones always spawn with full health and mana next to Meepo prime, even when leveling from a clone.
- Meepo and his clones are represented each by an icon with health and mana bars for each on the top left corner of the screen.
- When a Meepo is selected, its icon becomes brighter. When a Meepo takes damage, its icon blinks red.
- Clones benefit from talents bonuses, and from any attributes granted by items or buffs.
- However, they do not benefit from any other item bonuses (damage, health, armor, etc.).
- This also means that and the are effectively applied twice on Meepo clones.
- When Meepo prime loses attributes (to e.g. or ), the clones' attributes adapt.
- However, Meepo clones themselves are still subject to attribute loss and the other Meepos do not adapt to a clone losing attributes.
- When Meepo respawns with Reincarnation, all clones respawn next to the Meepo prime, and not at their death location.
- The level 25 talent automatically grants the extra Meepo clone and does not require Divided We Stand to be leveled.
- This ability is not available in Ability Draft.
- Experience gain
- Meepo clones only gain 30% of all experience, so that the remaining 70% are either lost or gained by nearby allies.
- This results in the following distribution of experience
- 0 Allies: The clone gets 30%, the remaining 70% are lost.
- 1 Ally: The clone gets 15%, the ally gets 85%.
- 2 Allies: The clone gets 10%, the allies share 90%.
- 3 Allies: The clone gets 7.5%, the allies share 92.5%.
- 4 Allies: The clone gets 6%, the allies share 94%.
- Having multiple Meepo clones within experience range does not stack their share up, it always remains at 30%.
- However, the primary Meepo, who still gains 100% experience normally like other heroes, can take part of the remaining 70% experience as well.
- This results in the following distribution of experience if the primary Meepo and a Meepo clone are within range
- 0 Allies: Meepo gets the full 100%.
- 1 Ally: Meepo gets 57.5%, the ally gets the remaining 42.5%.
- 2 Allies: Meepo gets 40%, the allies share the remaining 60%.
- 3 Allies: Meepo gets 30.63%, the allies share the remaining 69.38%.
- 4 Allies: Meepo gets 24.8%, the allies share the remaining 75.2%.
- Experience sharing for the and their allies can be defined as:
- Meepo clones cannot pick up or drop any items. They can pick up and benefit from runes.
- Meepo clones only copy the primary hero's pair of boots, which inlcudes the following items (in order of priority):
- : The clones gain a whenever they copy Boots of Travel 2. Has no stack limit.
- : The clones gain a whenever they copy Boots of Travel. Has no stack limit.
- : The clones cannot use the active ability.
- attributes on the primary Meepo, effectively grant twice the attributes to the clones. : The clones cannot toggle the treads, but copy the current state if the main Meepo toggles it. Since the Meepo clones copy any
- : The clones cannot use the active ability.
- The clones do not copy neutral items, not even the ones that classify as boots ( , ).
- It is not possible to give a Meepo clone or .

- and do not target clones.
- steals strength from a single random Meepo within the area, not from all of them.
- and gain a single stack for dying Meepo clones, no matter how many of them were nearby.
's temporary intelligence steal does not work against Meepo clones.
- When killing Meepo, he permanently steals from the primary Meepo only.
grants the victory damage to the enemy only if the duelling Meepo is the one that gets killed. If the duelling Meepo dies due to another Meepo dying, the enemy does not gain victory damage.
- If a Meepo clone wins a Duel, they gain the victory damage as well, and keep permanently. The other Meepoes do not copy the damage.
- grants gold for each Meepo clone that got tracked.
- gains a stack for each Meepo clone that died to its damage on a single cast.

- grants attributes, especially Agility, to all Meepo clones. The illusions can be used as extra damage, decoys, or Poof targets, and will benefit from Divided We Stand's attribute sharing.
|Roles:||Carry Escape Nuker Disabler Initiator Pusher|
|Playstyle:||A scavenger's life is not easy. It was one thing to Earthbind a potential meal, but quite another to handle the Riftshadow crystals that, upon breaking, could splinter one's soul. They are valuable, though. And that's what matters most to Meepo. Seldom seen alone, Meepo commands up to five separate bodies, completing multiple tasks in record time. Tired clones are sent home to rest, and once refreshed, quickly rejoins his brethren with a simple Poof. Draining foes and Ransacking fortresses, a swarm of angry, shovel-wielding Meepos can overwhelm even the mightiest of heroes.|
- Several of Meepo's lines reference the Scout from Team Fortress 2, another title by Valve.
- ▶️ "Aww, didn't mean to hurt ya. Much." is referring to Scout's line "Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hit ya... No, wait, yeah I did."
- ▶️ "I'm not even winded.", ▶️ "Who's the tough guy now, tough guy?", ▶️ "Freakin' unbelievable.", ▶️ "This is a real freakin' embarrasment.", ▶️ "No, seriously, you all suck!" and ▶️ "Now that's what I'm talking about!" are direct quotes from Scout.
- His death lines ▶️ ▶️ "Hey, that hurt." are a reference to Scout's lines upon evading bullets while under the effect of his Bonk! Atomic Punch (as heard here and here).
- ▶️ "You suck!" is also a line used frequently by the Scout.
- In his anger lines ▶️ and ▶️, he's mumbling "You've got to be kidding me", another line frequently used by the Scout.
- His death line ▶️ "You punched out all of my blood!" is a quote from the Scout in the shortfilm Meet the Sandvich.
- With ▶️ "Ahh now that's the stuff!", he's also quoting one of the Demoman's lines, another character from Team Fortress 2 (as heard here).
- Meepo is named after the first kobold players meet in The Sunless Citadel Dungeons and Dragons 3.0 adventure.
