Tree Grab
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 icon.pngTiny, 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.

    • The in-game tooltip includes the stun duration as well, showing a total duration of 1.5 seconds.
  • If a unit is affected by Toss, it takes 2 times the damage from Avalanche, which is 21/42/63/84 (Talent 43.4/64.4/85.4/106.4) per instance.

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.
  • 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 persists through the affected target's death, so it continues flying and still applies the area damage upon landing.
  • The target is fully disabled while tossed upwards and other units may pass below the tossed airborne unit.
    • Cannot target buildings, but they do take damage from the tossed unit landing within the damage radius.
    • Destroys trees within a 100 radius around the tossed unit upon landing.
  • Toss deals a total of damage at the following Grow levels to units and buildings respectively:

    • Level 2: 275/350/425/500 (Buildings 91.66/116.66/141.65/166.65)
    • Level 3: 375/450/525/600 (Buildings 124.99/149.99/174.98/199.98)
  • Can toss any unit, except for ancient creeps 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.
    • Can directly target and toss the target towards runes, but cannot toss runes.
  • Toss' modifier is hidden and not visible in the HUD.
  • The Toss requires no target Talent talent additionally grants the ability ground-targeting functionality.
    • When ground-targeted, its tosses the unit towards the targeted point.

Toggling Autocast off swaps this ability out with Tree Volley. Their cooldowns are separate.
Leveling up this ability levels another ability at the same time.
Both Tree Grab and Tree Throw are linked abilities.
Sticks and stones break all the bones, with structures sure to follow.


  • The Tree Grab buff lasts until the charges are used up, the 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.
    • With Aghanim's Shard icon.png Aghanim's Shard, 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 Grab buff is missing.
    • This causes items that use different values for melee and ranged heroes (e.g. Manta Style icon.png Manta Style) to now treat the caster as a melee hero.
    • Attack range bonuses are not overridden and still work normally.
  • Grants flat bonus attack damage, despite the tooltip stating otherwise.
    • The bonus damage is not applied when attacking allied units.
  • Tree Grab is a unique attack-based area damage that share some similarities with cleave, and it cannot be amplified with outgoing spell damage amplification and cannot spell lifesteal.
    • However, it can be amplified by incoming spell damage amplification.
    • Its damage can be reduced by damage block-sources.
    • Fully stacks with other sources of cleaves. Each source of cleave works completely independent.
    • 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 a semicircle on top of a rectangle, with the area always starting 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.

Even enemies can share in Tiny's arbor ardor.


  • Replaces Tree Grab until Tiny loses the tree.
  • The thrown 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 grants flying vision at its location for 2 seconds.
  • Tree Throw first applies the debuff, then the damage.
  • Cause Tiny to performs an instant attack on the targeted unit, or the first enemy it finds.
    • These instant attacks deal 20 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.
  • Enemies around the primary target are hit by splash damage, instead of instant attacks.
  • 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.png Skull Basher) to now treat the caster as a Melee melee hero with Tree Toss.

Sticks thrown from stones are like to shatter many bones.


  • Does not require Tree Grab to be leveled to be unlocked, nor relies on Tree Throw to work, once Aghanim's Scepter is acquired.
  • Throws trees in 0.4-second intervals, starting immediately upon cast begin, resulting in up to 6 trees being thrown.
    • The thrown tree travels at a speed of 1000.
    • Checks for trees in the same intervals. If no tree is found within the area, the channeling ends prematurely.
  • The trees within the tree grab radius are chosen randomly.
  • Causes Tiny to perform instant attacks based on its current level on all enemies within the damage radius.
    • Tree Throw instant attack notes fully apply.
