            Shadow Fiend: Tichondrius? Firelord, recolored black

            nope there are 3 fields in the world editor for the 3 main colors

            red, blue and green which have a maximum number of 225... i think when they are at max the unit has a normal texture but if they are to 0 the units texture becomes black

            slardar's texture is too blue because the red field is lowered

              Shadow Fiend is totally a customization of the Firelord model though:


              (and the arcana uses this concept)

                    Wow, it really HAS been a while since I played WC3. I don't even remember there BEING Night Elf dragon units.

                    I should probably do something about that.

                      Spectre: Maybe THIS is the hero based on the Scourge Phantom unit? Maybe Bane is from Starcraft? Similar to Avatar of Vengeance (What does that even mean?)
                      Puck: I got nothing. Night Elf Faery Dragon unit (That was a thing?)
                      Jakiro: Dragon Whelp Neutral Creep? Night Elf Two Headed Dragon unit (This was added in the expansion pack, right?)
                      Spirit Breaker: He's that catguy, right? I have no clue where he's from Orc Spirit Walker unit (Not ringing a bell)
                      Weaver: Zerg unit Crypt Fiend (I should'a guessed, he has the exact same body plan and everything!)
                      Phantom Assassin: Scourge Night Elf Warden, Hero version (*slap*)
                      Silencer: Expansion Blood Elf Spellbreaker unit (That was like betting on [i]red[/r] on a Roulette table)
                      Lion: Burning Legion Modified Archimonde model
                      Rubick: No idea. Custom Model (Should I even be counting these?)
                      Razor: Also Burning Legion? Revenant (D'OH!)
                      Faceless Void: Demon/Expansion Faceless One (Oh yeah, I remember those guys now!)

                        Okay, this is just pitiful.

                        First off, THERE WERE NO LOST ONES IN WC3. IT'S WORLD OF WARCRAFT. WORLD OF WARCRAFT IS NOT A BLIZZARD GAME. IT'S A BLIZZARD CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY AND GOOD TASTE.

                        Second,

                        Lone Druid: Druid of the Claw Night Elf unit
                        Lycan: Druid of the Fang Night Elf unit
                        LD is Fang. Lycan is Kil'jaeden (for pretty much no reason). Claws are the Sentinel ranged creeps.

                        Clockwerk: Dwarven Mortar Cannon unit
                        He is a rather literal clockwork goblin. Spawns out of the default Tinker's pocket factory in melee. The mortar team is still to be used in any way, shape, or form.

                        Shadow Shaman: Orc Shaman unit
                        That'd be Bloodseeker. Shadow Shaman is Shadow Hunter. Orc (Troll) Hero.

                        Omniknight: Paladin hero unit
                        Arthas, to be exact. The Dota 2 version looks nearly identical to the default Paladin, however.

                        Sand King: Giant Scorpion neutral creep
                        Arachnid. Insistent terminology.

                        Luna: The basic Night Elf unit Malfurion's girlfriend was the souped-up Hero unit version of.
                        They weren't even that similar. It's the Huntress.

                        Skeleton King: King Leoric from Diablo
                        A common skeleton with a crown prop on top of his head.

                        Juggernaut: Orc Blademaster hero unit
                        Fel Orc version.

                        Dragon Knight: uhhhhhhhhhhhh... Human Footman unit
                        Human Captain. Campaign unit.

                        Sven: Orc Grunt Overlord Felguard (OK now I see it, but why'd the basic Human melee unit get in and the Orc one didn't?)
                        The basic Human unit didn't fully make it - see above - but yeah, this is bull, there was never a Grunt hero.

                        Chen: High Elf Priest unit Custom Model (NOBODY EVER SAID DOTA HAD CUSTOM MODELS IN IT, HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW?)
                        It's the Orc Hero Far Seer. Thrall is a pimped out version of that model. Who the hell even thought it was a custom model. There are custom models, but only for a few heroes.

                        Necrophos: Scourge Necromancer unit Soul Keeper Ghost (... Who?)
                        Kel'Thuzad's ghost, not Soul Keeper. Soul Keeper's got nothing to do with him. He is effectively a very poorly pimped version of the Necromancer unit.

                        Clinkz: Scourge Skeleton unit Burning Archer (I have no recollection of this guy.)
                        A special kind of neutral creep. Differs from the Scourge spell version only in tint and size - you were technically right. The icon is the only thing that's different.

                        Phoenix: Phoenix neutral creep Archmage Ultimate Summon (OK, so maybe I didn't play as much WC3 multiplayer as I should have...)
                        Blood Mage ultimate summon.

                        Obsidian Destroyer Undead Unit (There was a thing in WC3 called that? Really?)
                        He's from the expansion. Obsidian Statue into Obsidian Destroyer if you research the upgrade. They were a bit rare.

                        Zeus: ...Yeah I have no clue where this guy came from. Mountain King hero unit (I was wondering what had happened to that guy. Did he REALLY have nothing but lightning abilities? I thought he was more varied.)
                        Avatar version to be exact. Had nothing to do with lightning (aside from Storm Hammer and Thunder Clap) before DotA.

                        Anti-Mage: ...ALSO a Blood Elf unit from the expansion? Illidan Stormrage pre-corruption. (I'm used to thinking of him AFTER he was corrupted, OK?)
                        AKA your usual Daemon Hunter Night Elf Hero.

                        Bounty Hunter: uh, some unit from the Mercenary Taverns? Custom Model (Ugh.)
                        Not even remotely. He's Akama, the Draenei leader from TFT. Apparently they are "Fallen Ones" now because Blizzard want to retcon everything that isn't marketable.

                        Abaddon: Death Knight Arthas
                        Just a Death Knight, AFAIK. Used to be Arthas for no reason at all. Not anymore. They kept the Frostmourne ability, though... urgh.

                        Shadow Fiend: Tichondrius Firelord (What is that, a boss level Fire Elemental? I don't remember this one.)
                        Tavern hero from TFT. Got added with a late update. Never featured in campaigns.

                        Night Stalker: ALSO Scourge Gargoyle unit? Dreadlord (Oh, he's the Dread Lord...)
                        Tichondrius version to be exact.

                        Undying: ...Definitely Scourge... Custom Model (*thud* *thud* *thud*...)
                        Normal Zombie, sized way up. Not very custom. May have been slightly changed to make him not go blurry once he got resized, but he's a normal zombie.

                        Bloodseeker: Neutral creep of some sort Orc Shaman (Wait, they used Orc Shaman twice?)
                        See above.

                        Viper: Neutral creep of some sort Nether Dragon (Nether Dragon?)
                        Draenor neutral creeps.

                        Spectre: Maybe THIS is the hero based on the Scourge Phantom unit? Maybe Bane is from Starcraft? Similar to Avatar of Vengeance (What does that even mean?)
                        It IS the Avatar. The model that's used for the main summon that is.

                        Puck: I got nothing. Night Elf Faery Dragon unit (That was a thing?)
                        Jakiro: Dragon Whelp Neutral Creep? Night Elf Two Headed Dragon unit (This was added in the expansion pack, right?)
                        Spirit Breaker: He's that catguy, right? I have no clue where he's from Orc Spirit Walker unit (Not ringing a bell)
                        All of them, yes, the expansion.

                        Weaver: Zerg unit Crypt Fiend (I should'a guessed, he has the exact same body plan and everything!)
                        A Nerubian reskin of the Crypt Fiend, actually. Can't tell which one, my memory isn't perfect.

                        Lion: Burning Legion Modified Archimonde model
                        ...
                        Fel Orc Warlock, unit-but-not-really-used-in-the-end-version.

                        Rubick: No idea. Custom Model (Should I even be counting these?)
                        He's Medivh. Campaign unit.
                        Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

                        THE DOTA 2 LORE MEGATHREAD IS TO BE UPDATED BY JULY 5TH

                          It's still canonical, like it or not.
                          Possible solution to foreigners issue
                          In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war.

                              Did you try and guess which WC3 models they were based off, without actually looking up the original models themselves?
