Grows in size and strength as battle ensues.
A curious being of animated stone, Tiny roams the world in search of his origins. Seemingly mild-mannered, the Stone Giant is nonetheless a force to behold as he brings down a multitude of Avalanches. He Tosses friends and foes alike across the battlefield, landing them on top of enemies and into the fray. Growing to tremendous size and strength as the battle progresses, Tiny's power can quickly become terrifying. Some have even claimed to witness the Stone Giant Wielding a Massive Tree, bludgeoning and Volleying Trees at a fortress until only rubble remained.

Tiny minimap iconTiny, the Stone Giant
▶️ "My enemies break upon me like surf upon the stone."
Coming to life as a chunk of stone, Tiny's origins are a mystery on which he continually speculates. He is a Stone Giant now, but what did he used to be? A splinter broken from a Golem's heel? A shard swept from a gargoyle-sculptor's workshop? A fragment of the Oracular Visage of Garthos? A deep curiosity drives him, and he travels the world tirelessly seeking his origins, his parentage, his people. As he roams, he gathers weight and size; the forces that weather lesser rocks, instead cause Tiny to grow and ever grow.

Tiny's gargantuan stature allows him to catapult even the sturdiest of warriors.

  • The tossed unit travels at a speed based on the distance between it and the target, capped at 2308.
    • The speed does not instantly adapt if the distance changes, but rather accelerates or decelerates at a slow rate.
  • Can toss any unit, except for Animal Courier Radiant minimap icon Couriers, ancient creeps, buildings, and wards.
    • Invisible enemy units cannot be tossed, but they can still take damage from a unit being tossed onto or near them.
    • Units in the Fog of War can be tossed if they are within the 300 grab radius of Tiny, but cannot be selected as a target.
    • Cannot target buildings, but they take 27/53/80/107 damage if within the damage radius.
    • Can directly target and toss the target towards runes, but cannot toss runes.

  • The tossed unit can be avoided by blinking or moving rapidly, but cannot technically be disjointed.
    • This means the tossed unit can fly up to 3000 range away when the target teleports far enough away.
  • Toss' modifier is hidden in the HUD.
    • It persists through the target's death, so it continues flying and still applies the area damage upon landing.

Tiny Tree Grab area

Tree Grab's damage area visualized.

  • The Tree Grab buff lasts until the charges are used up, the Tree Throw icon Tree Throw sub-ability is used, or until death.
    • The number of remaining attacks is visible on the buff icon. The buff is visible to everyone.
    • Remaining charges on the HUD are not reduced until Tiny loses the tree. Grabbing a new tree grants a new permanent status buff.
  • Upon cast, the mana is expended, but it does not go on cooldown. Losing the grabbed tree in any way starts the ability's cooldown.
  • Turns the caster into a Melee melee unit with 350 attack range until the Tree is lost.
    • This causes items that use different values for melee and ranged heroes (e.g. Manta Style icon Manta Style) to now treat the caster as a melee hero.
    • Attack range bonuses are not overridden and still work normally.
  • Tree Grab is a unique attack-based area damage that has the following properties:
    • The area has the following flags:
    • The damage is affected by damage block.
    • It fully stacks with other sources of cleaves, with multiple sources and working independently.
    • Applies its area damage upon attacking wards, or buildings, but not on allies and items. Wards and buildings are unaffected by the area damage.
    • Despite the visual effect, the area damage is applied instantly in the whole area.
  • The area is shaped like a rectangle with a semi-circle on top, and always starts in front of the attacking unit.
    • The rectangle has a length of 400 and a width of 400. The semi-circle has a radius of 200.
    • With the area damage length and width, the area damage can reach up to 600 range away from Tiny.
  • The building bonus attack damage is considered as a conditional attack damage bonus.
    • Although the attack damage bonus values are not displayed in the HUD, it is still considered and directly added to Tiny's attack damage.
    • It can be reduced only by flat reductions (e.g. damage block).
    • Since it is considered bonus attack damage, it is not affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions.
  • Reduces attack range, ability effects persist if Rubick loses the ability while still wielding a tree.

Even enemies can share in Tiny's arbor ardor.

  • Replaces Tree Grab icon Tree Grab until Tiny loses the tree.
  • The tree travels at a speed of 900.
  • When unit-targeted, the projectile homes in on the target, and hits the target upon fully reaching it.
    • The tree thrown this way does not provide vision while homing to the target.
  • When ground-targeted, the tree travels in a straight line up to 1200 range before it disappears.
    • The tree thrown provides 200 radius flying vision around itself while traveling.
    • The tree thrown has a 300 radius collision size. This means this way, the tree may hit the intended target before reaching the target point.
    • With the travel distance and collision radius, the tree thrown can hit units up to 1500.
    • The splash damage is centered around the first unit it hits, and not around where the tree was as it hit.
  • When the tree hits a unit, no matter if unit-targeted or ground-targeted, it provides 200 radius flying vision at its location for 2 seconds.
  • Cannot be directly cast on Animal Courier Radiant minimap icon Couriers.
    • However, the splash damage from ground-targeted throw does affect the Courier.
  • Cause Tiny to perform an instant attack on the targeted unit, or the first enemy it finds.
    • These instant attacks deal 20 (Upgradable by Aghanim's Shard. 120) bonus damage, they do not use Tree Grab's bonus damage values. It also applies splash damage around the target.
    • These instant attacks can proc any attack modifiers and on-hit effects normally. They have True Strike and ignore disarms.
    • The splash effects are based on the target's position, damaging a trapezoid area in the opposite direction where the tree came from.
    • If the caster is a Ranged ranged hero, the instant attacks do not use attack projectiles and are instant, but still count as ranged attacks.
  • Tree Throw first applies the slow debuff, then the instant attack and splash damage.
  • Although the tree thrown is a projectile and it may look like a ranged attack, the attack still counts as a Melee melee attack when coming from Tiny.
    • This means all abilities that use different values for melee and ranged heroes (e.g. Skull Basher icon Skull Basher) treat the caster as a Melee melee hero.
  • No longer can throw the wielded tree upon losing ability.
  • Only affects the primary target.

Tree Volley icon

    • Fully benefits illusions, and is affected by every percentage-based base attack damage increasing or reducing effects.
    • TALENT
      This Grow bonus attack damage increases the base attack damage bonus to 70/154/238 while Tiny is holding a tree with Tree Grab icon Tree Grab.
  • Percentage-based attack speed loss is calculated after all flat attack speed bonuses and reductions.
    • Grow affects both Tiny's min and max attack speed values.

Recommended Items[]

Starting items:

  • Tango icon Tango keeps Tiny's health up in lane.
  • Healing Salve icon Healing Salve restores health to Tiny.
  • Iron Branch icon Iron Branch gives attributes, increasing health, mana, and damage.
  • Enchanted Mango icon Enchanted Mango's passive health regeneration helps Tiny stay in lane longer; the burst mana also allows Tiny to use more abilities.

Early game:

  • Magic Stick icon Regular Stick does nothing, so Tiny can sit around becoming one with his inner stone.
  • Boots of Speed icon Boots of Speed provides movement speed bonus so Tiny can get close to targets and use abilities on them.
  • Bottle icon Bottle gives Tiny regeneration to stay in lane and mana to fuel his abilities by storing runes, which can heavily improve his performance if roaming or going mid.
  • Bracer icon Bracer pads out Tiny's attributes, giving a cheap boost to both his damage for last-hitting and his mana pool for fighting.

Mid game:

  • Magic Wand icon Magic Wand gives useful bonuses to Tiny's overall attributes and increases its charge storing capacity to restore health and mana.
  • Power Treads icon Power Treads gives attack speed and appropriate attributes. Switching to intelligence sustains Tiny's abilities usage, while switching to agility grants more attack speed to complement his high attack damage.
  • Echo Sabre icon Echo Sabre's double attack compensates for Tiny's low attack speed and synergizes well with his high attack damage, adding even more burst damage to his arsenal. It also grants much-needed mana regeneration and is a reasonably cheap pickup.
  • Blink Dagger icon Blink Dagger facilitates Avalanche and Toss combo, causing massive burst damage to one or more enemy heroes.
  • Hyperstone icon Hyperstone can be a cheaper alternative to Echo Sabre allowing you to head for Moon Shard or Cuirass directly. Especially by delaying your first ultimate you may opt for a consistent attack frequency.
  • Arcane Boots icon Arcane Boots will provide enough mana to cast Toss and Avalanche multiple times without exceeding your mana pool. Alternative to Power Treads, catering to a gank-caster based gameplay.

Late game:

  • Assault Cuirass icon Assault Cuirass gives attack speed to increase Tiny's damage output and armor to help Tiny tank physical attacks. The aura lowers buildings' and enemies' armors, complementing Tree Grab's and Grow's bonus attack damage.
  • Daedalus icon Daedalus helps Tiny inflict massive critical strike damage, thanks to his absurd attack damage from Tree Grab and Grow.
  • Black King Bar icon Black King Bar gives strength and damage, as well as spell immunity to allow Tiny to move and attack enemies freely for several seconds, delivering consistent damage in team fights.
  • Moon Shard icon Moon Shard grants Tiny massive attack speed increase to complement his powerful attack damage and Tree Grab's splash. Tiny may also choose to consume the shard to gain some attack speed bonus but clear an inventory slot for another late game item. Alternative to Cuirass.

Situational items:

  • Soul Ring icon Soul Ring is an alternative to Bottle as a mana source, letting Tiny cast his expensive spells more easily for a minor health cost.
  • Phase Boots icon Phase Boots grant attack damage and movement speed so Tiny can better approach opponent before having Blink Dagger, suiting an aggressive playstyle.
  • Drum of Endurance icon Drum of Endurance gives attack speed, movement speed, and attributes for a low price.
  • Mask of Madness icon Mask of Madness gives a huge attack speed buff in addition to lifesteal for cheap, letting him smash teams apart with Tree Grab, and the armor loss is offset by Grow.
  • Sange and Yasha icon Sange and Yasha grants movement speed, strength, and much needed agility, raising Tiny's attack speed to increase his damage output.
  • Shadow Blade icon Shadow Blade, an alternative or a complement to Blink Dagger, supplies attack speed and attack damage bonuses. The active Shadow Walk grants invisibility, speeds up Tiny's movement to get in position quicker, and applies burst physical damage when attack out of Shadow Walk.
  • Heart of Tarrasque icon Heart of Tarrasque turns Tiny into a true tank, giving him lots of strength, health, and health regeneration.
  • Aghanim's Scepter icon Aghanim's Scepter gives Tiny even more area-of-effect damage to soften enemies up or kill fragile foes outright, especially if he already has his damage items.
  • Khanda icon Khanda deals massive burst damage thanks to Tiny's huge attack damage and is very easy to trigger with Toss and thrown trees.
