Valve's Courier: Morphling
Arcana Courier = oldschool dota1 courier in a sense.
The courier starts out as a mini Morphling, as big as the shitty wizard mounted on top of that donkey.
BUT WAIT! THERES MORE!
Its the only courier that has extra buttons, namely "Morph Forward" and "Morph Back"
which will cycle to EVERY DOTA2 CHARACTER.
This will require intense amounts of "flying" version for most of the heroes
that doesnt have a flying state or isnt inherently flying, thats why only
Valve can do this courier.
If you ever make one Valve, please give me one, for free <3
I love you, thanks.
EDIT: I just realized the in-game resources that would be needed to
load all the scaled down versions of the heroes, which is practically just
loading all 110+ heroes like in a normal game, which will suck.
I suggest limiting it to only the 10 heroes selected in the game,
which would significantly reduce things resource-wise.
But still, flying animations, right? like rubick riding his staff like a broomstick
or tiny flapping its stony arms, or naga/medusa just wading in the air,
or regular jakiro/lina flying, or dragon knight in dragon form when upgraded,
or flying trio of brewmaster bears, or strom spirit just becomes a ball of lightning
when on courier speed burst, or axe spinning his axe into a whirly helicopter
blade of death, or elder titan spirit form just flying around, or lone druid riding
his flying spirit bear, or the barrel member of techies having propeller on its top
while theyre holding him by the legs, or clockwerk using his flares as rockets,
or ember spirit in his ethereal jumpy form, or vengeful spirit being flown around
by skywrath mage, or skywrath mage holding vengeful spirit by the hand while flying
or sandking riding a sand tornado, or pugna riding viper, etc etc etc.
EDIT EDIT: btw, you can gift the courier to me at http://steamcommunity.com/id/ghostface619/

ehh no. would cause more confusion for newer players
theyre cute mini heroes. no one would be confused.
i guess youre not a dota1 player for even considering that aspect
i actually like the whole idea but i'v seen people mistake silencer for DK, razor for lich etc, newbies would get confused seeing smaller hero's :<
