    Chinese "dotaisms"

    After playing on the Chinese perfect world servers for a few months, I thought it might be fun to compile a running list of the silly/different names for dota heroes, items, terms used in China that I've encountered.

    Heroes. While many are simply called by their initials, such as SD for shadow demon, or first part of their name, such as VIP for viper, quite a few heroes have been given pet names. Here are translated names of the ones I know, feel free to suggest any I missed.

    大魚人 "Big fish dude"
    小魚人 "Lil fish dude"
    飛機 "Airplane" - if you fight with gyro then you get 打飛機 which is "masturbate" in Chinese
    ~ / 船長 "Coco" or "Capn"
    兔子 "Rabbit" cause good luck fucking catching him
    藍貓 "Blue panda"
    火貓 / 紅貓 "Fire/red panda"
    綠貓 /土貓 "Green/earth panda"
    冰棍 "Popsicle"
    电棍 "Electric stick"
    螞蟻 "Ant"
    蓝胖 "Blue fatty"
    大樹 "Big tree"
    主宰 "The dominator" or "BM" for blademaster aka jugg's model in dota 1
    屍王 "Zombie King"
    毒狗 "Poison dog"
    白牛 "White cow"
    猛犸 "Mammoth"
    水人 "Water dude"
    冰女 "Ice lady"
    大牙 "Big tooth"
    幽鬼 "wraith"
    白虎 "White tiger" or just "POM" with no T. “White tiger" apparently means pussy in Chinese, seems fitting imo.
    卡爾 "Ka'er" pronounced "Kah Arrr" aka "Carl" aka "Kael"
    火槍 "Flintlock"
    骷法 "Skeleton mage"
    狼人 "Wolf dude"
    小骷髏 "Lil skeleton"
    牛頭/小牛"Cow head" aka "cow chief" or "Lil cow"
    大牛 "Big cow"
    猴子 "Monkey"
    小黑 "Lil blackie"
    火女 "Fire woman"
    小小 "Small small" aka "tiny"
    小鹿 "Lil deer"
    小Y "Lil Y" because Y sounds like "crooked" in Chinese, and apparently walked dat crooked swagga' walk in dota 1
    半人馬 LIT = "Half horse dude" -> "centaur"
    黑鳥 "Black bird"
    龍騎 "Dragon rider"
    小狗 "Doggy"
    剛背 "Steel back" or "piggy"
    小人魚 "Little mermaid"
    大人魚 / 一姐 "Big Mermaid" or "Big Sis[ster]" since they used to think she's the strongest female carry
    空虛 / JB臉 Now called "void" used to be called "penis face"
    屠夫 usually called "butcher" now, but used to be called "fatty"




    Terms.

    Carry: 大哥 "Big brother"

    Support: 醬油 "Soy Sauce". Soy Sauce in dota has another meaning that describes someone who has done absolute jack shit all game.

    Mana: 藍 "Blue" ; instead of yelling oom when you're out of mana, you just yell "NO BLUE"

    Jungle: 打野 "The wild." I got laughed at once when I tried telling my team I was going into the "Jungle". Yeah.. they don't say "jungle".

    Ricing: 打錢 LIT: "hitting money"

    RR: 無腦打錢 LIT "no brain hitting money"

    Runes: 符 "Runes" but instead of picking them up, you 吃 "eat" them

    Feeding: 坑 "Burying". Usually they'll either say you're burying the team, or use "burying" as an adjective used to describe the feeder.

    Roshan: 肉山 "roushan" aka "meat mountain". People will also call him "BOSS", or R3 since 3 is pronounced San in Chinese and sounds pretty close to "shan".

    Eternal Envy: casters and pro-players all call him "EE Sama"




    Items.

    Force staff: 推推 "Push push"

    Wards: 眼 "Eyes"

    True sight: 真眼 "Real eyes". When people type this in a hurry, it always almost gets mistyped as 真言, spelled the same way, which means something like "real talk".

    Courier: 雞 "Chicken" although most people just say "J".

    Sheepstick: 羊刀 "Sheep knife"

    Blink: 跳刀 "Jump Knife"

    Mjolnir: 雷錘 "thunder hammer"

    Buriza /Daedalus: 大炮 "Big Cannon"









    Hey Reddit lol

    I knew that carry was big brother before from something but I can't remember what, something to do with that 'mentor' thing they have going.

    Do you know what that's all about? I see similar things in SEA and Chinese DotA where they attribute some legendary pro player as the mentor of someone else or something.

    Well you're missing my absolute favorite which is Invoker being called "Carl" (prob. just saying Kael with accent but that shits funny as hell)

    At one point Blink Dagger was called Jump Knife, not sure if that's still true but it tickles me

    Invoker is Carl in dota 2

    Haha yea, the Chinese transliteration of "kael" ends up sounding more like Carl than it does invokers' name

    And yea you're right about blink dagger. Added
