* {{Conlang}}: [[https://dota2.gamepedia.com/Ozkavosh Ozkavosh]], a rudimentary language used by demons, which is spoken in-game by Doom, Shadow Demon, Shadow Fiend, and Terrorblade. Legion Commander will also speak the language while wearing the Blades of Voth Domosh arcana, (which itself was made by a demon and is heavily implied to be possessing/corrupting Legion Commander when she wears it).

** Slardar's abilities, all four of them, used to have very to-the-point names: Crush, Sprint, Bash, and Amp Damage. An update then later gave them more flavourful names (Slithereen Crush, Guardian Sprint, Bash of the Deep, and Corrosive Haze respectively).

*** Oddly, while the Radiant/Dire split is no longer present in the game itself, it's still maintained (as of the end of 2017) on the official Dota site's [[http://www.dota2.com/heroes/ hero page]]. Hilariously, it puts Dark Willow (who was released after Reborn and thus has no Radiant or Dire alliance in the game itself) on the Radiant side, despite being a BloodKnight ThrillSeeker who burned down her family estate because she found TheFairFolk's daily politics of murder and manipulation ''too boring''.

** The Heart of Tarrasque item's name and concept was clearly inspired a famously-ultimate DungeonsAndDragons monster name Tarrasque that, until 4th edition changed it, could literally regenerate from any short of death short of using a reality-warping spell to keep it down.

* {{Nerf}}: DOTA has an interesting philosophy towards nerfing: If a hero is overpowered, unless it's a true GameBreaker don't nerf the OP ability, nerf something else. This results in heroes that seem overpowered, but who also have rather severe weaknesses to go with the strength.

* FlamingMeteor:
** Invoker's Chaos Meteor deal damage-over-time when a foe touches the meteor. The distance of the meteor and the damage is based on his current power of Wex and Exort, respectively. It takes time for the meteor to land and move, so synergy with his other skills is necessary for maximum damage.
** The Meteor Hammer summons a meteor burning with blue flames after a few seconds which can stun and deal damage-over-time to units and buildings.

* ObviousRulePatch: Low Priority queue is supposed to be used to punish players who either troll other people or they constantly abandon games that are going on right now. Unfortunately, players still chose to troll other player by either griefing, or trash talking other and after number of games, they got out of it without consequences. So Valve gradually makes the Low Priority punishment harsher and harsher from requiring into a set number of games played, disabling co-op bots counting as a match, to requiring a set number of wins in order to get out of such queue.

** One of the changelogs for 7.07 is that a player can now only own 1 animal courier per game and are automatically upgraded after 3 minutes. Unfortunately that opens for easy griefing abuse when someone could just buy a courier but rather than activating it, they would just drop it and deny the unopened courier, causing the player to permanently lose the courier and can no longer obtain them for the rest of the game. This is eventually patched out by making the courier automatically summoned upon being purchased and just for further safety, make them unable to be destroyed or sold should a player purchased it outside the fountain.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Just as [[LightIsNotGood the Radiant heroes aren't necessarily good guys]], certain Dire heroes can be good people. Some of them, such as Abaddon and Clinkz, are almost purely heroic other than their creepy appearance, and others such as Sand King or Spectre are closer to neutral than evil.

* LightIsNotGood: Despite the use of light and bright colours compared to the Dire, the only thing that the Radiant is 'good' at is environmental friendliness, if the status of Radiant trees compared to Dire trees is anything to go by.

%%* DarkIsEvil[=/=]DarkIsNotEvil: This game is an example where being Dire doesn't always mean you'll always be some baby-eating bastard, when compared to the old one.
%%** On the obviously black scale of morality, there's Night Stalker who eats people and wants to bring TheNightThatNeverEnds, the 'Demon trio' taken straight from Hell: Shadow Fiend, Shadow Demon and Doom, and horrible demons on their own such as Terrorblade and Pugna. And then there's {{Eldritch Abomination}}s such as [[YourWorstNightmare Bane]] and [[EvilIsDeathlyCold Ancient Apparition]].
%%** On the light scale, there's Abaddon, [[TheSacredDarkness who is only dark in appearance, but noble in the most part]], Spectre who only wants to go back to her own home, Visage who is just keeping the dead, Magnus, Clinkz and Lycan who are better described as wandering victims of circumstance, and Arc Warden who wants to put an end to the war between the Ancients all together, either through the unification or destruction of both sides.
%%** On the middle of the scale, there's Broodmother who, while certainly villainous and probably slightly close to the black side of morality, only wants to protect her spiderlings and would leave the surface dwellers alone if she wasn't provoked, and Axe, who is really just seeking adventure and battle (and is also looking to sell books based off of said adventures).
