    Arthur, the Chosen 
"Courage, my friend. Courage!"

The first of mankind that rose up to challenge the darkness encroaching Athanor, the chivalrous knight Arthur rallied mankind in the darkest hour and faced off against Maloch and his hellish horde, allowing humans to become a respected race. The Valiant Order is built under his creed and teaching, and his undaunted spirit and dedication towards order and justice is followed by many, especially his successors, such as Thane.

Arthur is a Warrior/Tank hero who charges into the fray of battle and disrupts his enemies while withstanding what he enemies throws at him. He does not utilize mana, only depending on his cooldown.

His Ultimate, Deep Impact, makes him leap to a nearby enemy and stab his sword to the ground, creating a blast that knocks nearby enemies upwards and leaves a mark in the ground, those who stay there will take damage over time.
  • BFS: A big knight needs a sword as big as he is, and he has no problems swinging it.
  • Close-Range Combatant: Arthur always needs to get close to his enemies to start dealing damage. If the enemy tries to kite it, he can run forward to close the gap himself.
  • Expy: One can say he's based on Garen, since he has a speed boost + debilitating first strike buff and a constant spinning strike (though he doesn't personally spin himself) and an ultimate that involves stabbing the sword to the ground (although not an execute), and does not use mana at all. Then there's also the knightly motif. It's not that uncommon to see Arthur hiding in the bush waiting to strike, a strategy familiar enough for those who knows their 'Bushren'.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Since this is a MOBA, Arthur has no problems fighting alongside/against Thane, who was supposed to take prominence long after Arthur's era was done.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Arthur is fast, able to burst targets and also kind of durable. His versatility makes him a welcome addition to almost any team.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: He's a chivalrous knight with exceptionally good spirit, fighting for the safety of mankind.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Most likely his name is inspired by King Arthur, as he also shared the traits of wielding a Cool Sword, is The Paragon chivalrous knight that led humanity, although this Arthur has never been a King officially.

  • Difficult, but Awesome: He's not a newbie-friendly character, since Supes needs to juggle his two separate movesets, one which is only accessible by running around several times first, and then they're only aiming forward. Those who don't really understand Supes' gameplay will become easy feeder. However, if you get by that, Supes is a dangerous superhero who's faster than you and stronger than you with every punches he throws. He's constantly banned in ranked because a good Superman is a terror in the battlefield.
  • Flight: He can fly after he walked several distances. And this changes his moveset.
  • Flying Brick: The typical superhero with the power of flight, Super Strength and toughness... and literally hits like a brick too.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Superman is often a top tier character because he moves very quickly, and yet hits like a truck even on normal attack alone. And when you think you had him on the ropes, he simply shrugs off your crowd control and resume beating you up while hounding you.
  • No-Sell: Man of Steel have him shrug off every crowd control he has been inflicted with. Including stuns.
  • Not the Intended Use: Superman is designated as Warrior/Tank, but thanks to his flight making him an excellent roamer, he's more played as a Warrior/Assassin, flanking his enemies or invading jungles (but not jungling himself)

Her passive Amazon Shield has her throw her shield on every third basic attack, dealing additional true damage and slowing enemies hit, as well as restoring her own HP.

  • Blade on a Stick: He's using a very long spear to skewer his enemies.
  • Dragon Knight: Downplayed. While he can't transform into a dragon, he's a knight with heavy dragon Theme Naming on him. And he has dragon blood running in his veins.
  • Expy:
    • He's basically AOV's answer to Xin Zhao, a sticky spearman with good morals best used for jungling and capable to be a snowballing hero. Furthermore...
    • His personality of a straightforward honorable soldier with a spear draws similarity with Zhao Yun, incidentally also being the inspiration of the aforementioned Xin Zhao. Ironically, in Wangzhe Rongyao, Zhao Yun was there, but using the moveset of Zanis' Evil Counterpart Zephys.
  • Irony: When using Blood Wyrm, Zanis' quotes is more geared in preparing to kick ass. However, the speed buff he got means that the skill could be used to run away from a battle that went south, so he could be saying his Pre Ass Kicking One Liner while running away.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: While not as blatant as Arthur and Thane, Zanis has the 'chivalrous spear knight' personality to the tee.
  • Magikarp Power: The definition of a snowball hero. Zanis is encouraged to be in the heat of battle, killing enemy heroes or helping others secure a kill. With more kill points, Zanis can snowball into a hero that kills everything with a few touches.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: "Taste my spear!!", whenever he activates his first skill. He's either on the hunt to make sure his enemy does not escape his beatings... or just to make a hasty retreat.

    Wiro, 212 Warrior 
"Muridnya sableng, gurunya gendeng!"Translation 

During his infant days, Wiro Saksana was almost killed by the evil martial artist Mahesa Birawa who killed his parents shortly before. Saved by Mahesa's master, Sinto Gendeng, he was raised by her in martial arts and got rubbed by her crazy antics, eventually becoming known as Wiro Sableng (Crazy Wiro), who wandered the Earth, improving his martial arts and defeating evil wherever he went, and riling them up with his crazy personality. For some reason, Wiro stumbled onto Athanor and noticed that wherever he went, problems and evil would still lurk, and as usual, it's still his calling to squash them. Armed with his sacred axe, 'Kapak Naga Geni 212', and easily recognized with the 212 mark on his chest, Wiro is ready to kick evil's ass and drive them crazy.

Wiro is a Tank/Warrior hero that gets into his enemies' rank and wreaks havoc there. His passive, Sacred 212, not only gives him a defensive buff, but also allows him to come back from the dead after channeling for a few seconds, but he can still be hit by enemies, killing him and he had to depend on respawn timer after that. Allies can also tag him during the process, giving him more health for him to recover, and when he rises back up, he deals damage and debuffs his enemies while gaining buffs on his own. In his first skill, 212 Axe, Wiro buffs his next three attacks, the first two deals increased damage and the third one knocks surrounding enemies to the air. His second skill, Tornado Fist, gets Wiro to charge forward, with his fist enlarged by ki power and pushes enemies forward, if they hit a wall, they take extra damage and stunned for a second. Wiro can also deal damage to buildings this way. With his ultimate, Sunray Fist, Wiro charges up and a growing circle appears surrounding him. He can then release his inner power any time to deal massive damage and knock up enemies within the circle, which grows larger the longer he charges. If he cancels his skill or is interrupted by crowd control, the cooldown will be drastically reduced, so he can try again in a short time.
  • An Axe to Grind: The double-headed axe known as 'Kapak Naga Geni 212' is Wiro's Weapon of Choice and he sure swings it pretty hard.
  • Auto-Revive: If you kill him once, unless you take extra efforts to beat him down again, Wiro will just come back instantly like nothing happened.
  • Ax-Crazy: 'Sableng' is Indonesian for 'Crazy'. And with a name like Wiro Sableng...
  • Bilingual Bonus: Speaks in Bahasa Indonesia, although Tencent also prepared an English speaker somewhere.
  • Mythology Gag: One of his quotes, "Aku melangkah menyusuri dunia!"Translation , is taken straight from the lyrics of the theme song of his own TV Series show that aired during The '90s.
  • The Power of Friendship: Weaponized. When Sacred 212 is in effect, up to three friends can walk through the marks left by Wiro, and he gains more health to withstand more attack and get active again with more health.
  • Stone Wall: Wiro isn't the type to quickly kill his enemies, but he's a tough guy who will continuously disrupt his enemies' ranks and is particularly hard to kill when he's assisted with others.

Along the way, he has also fought against multidimensional threat. The Doomspear Zephys at one point stumbled onto Gotham and Batman fought him. The battle dragged him onto Athanor, where the Demon Hunter Valhein helped him drive away Zephys. Brought to Thane, Batman discovered the material known as Andura Stones, and its capabilities to unleash destruction through time and space. Despite being thrown back to Gotham afterwards, Batman made preparations to get back to Athanor and fight to secure the Andura Stones and the safety of the multiverse.

Batman is an Assassin/Warrior hero specializing in eliminating a single enemy, one by one. His passive is Caped Crusader, granting Batman bonus movement speed whenever he's closing in to an enemy hero. With his first skill, Forearm Strike, Batman throws a hook punch in a circle, damaging everyone in his range, and randomly chooses an enemy to receive double damage. His second skill is Batarang, where Batman threw his signature batarang to damage enemies in line and marking them and slowing them. The mark will explode and deal damage depending on the enemy's HP. And those hit by Batman with the mark will be stunned and heal Batman for a percentage of HP. His Ultimate, Dark Knight, enables Batman to enter Stealth and will not be revealed unless he attacks, get near tower or stays near an enemy for 3 seconds. While in this mode, Batman can recast the skill, where he will leap and execute a flying drop kick that massively damages everyone in his way. Once he exits stealth, Batman will gain increased attack speed temporarily.
  • Badass Normal: Athanor is full of magic, superpower, fancy weapons. So what does Batman needs to kick ass? Just his limbs. And a few batarangs. The usual.
  • Crutch Character: Amongst DC Heroes, Batman, while servicable, tends to be the lowest amongst the DC Heroes in tier list because of this. He's an ungodly terror in early game, but once the game go longer and shifts more into team fights, he became more or less irrelevant. A good Batman, however, makes sure that his team can snowball and win early by striking fear and shutting down his opposition before they could have time to grow.
  • Dynamic Entry: You were just minding your business, and suddenly there's a pair of white eyes icon above your head... And before you realize it, Batman suddenly appears, just getting out of the stealth and drop kicks you in the face.
  • Invisibility: One of the few heroes in this game that can go invisible.
  • Terror Hero: And why he's a Crutch Character. Batman works well in spreading terror to weak heroes, but when they grow stronger, Batman is not that terrorizing anymore.

After rejecting many suitors and only seeking companionship with those who had power, she ended up in the service of a warlord that liked conquering places and sought a way to defeat a terrorizing dragon and Diao Chan was ordered to learn magic to help his quest, something she mastered quickly. The warlord and his band of men eventually fell under the hands of a dragon-blooded warrior, the mighty Lu Bu, but Diao Chan became intrigued with him and her knowledge on dragon magic soothed his fury and they fell in love, traveling together and also combining their strengths to defeat Lu Bu's Dragon Father that threatened to separate them.

  • Adaptational Jerkass: Zig-zagged. As opposed to the source character from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel, Diao Chan here is a lot more confident, ruthless, selfish and haughty. On the other hand, some of her questionable traits like being a Manipulative Bitch is also omitted. The trope was played more straight before she got a lore update.
  • An Ice Person: She's the token ice mage of the game.
  • Expy:
    • Before her lore update, she's practically similar to "Romance of the Three Kingdoms' Diao Chan, only bitchier.". Nowadays, she has a different story, but it's clear that she's based on the novel's Diao Chan.
    • Gameplay-wise, Diao Chan is basically AOV's version of Crystal Maiden, the ice mage with area slow, a disable (Diao Chan's skill covers an area, however, instead of a single target) and a channeled ice storm ultimate.
  • Crutch Character: Diao Chan's skills does not scale very well damage-wise. In the beginning of the game, she can work well as a lane bully, but as time goes on, she is usually more geared for supporting her allies by disabling her opponents.
  • Femme Fatale: A lot of her quotes are attempts to seduce her foes or even the player, like asking to have some tea instead of fighting, or asking to go somewhere comfier with her. Of course, as a mage, it won't be long until she decides to freeze you to death.
  • Lady of Black Magic: She's an elegant lady that has several ice magic to control the battlefield.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's an attractive lady that shows off some of her breasts
  • My Eyes Are Up Here: One of her selected quotes, and not without a reason: She's got a pair of nice racks that are rather visible thanks to her clothes.
  • Official Couple: With Lu Bu, just like the original source, even if there were story changes.
  • Proud Beauty: One of her lines flat out tells others to bow before her beauty.

    Lauriel, the Archangel 
"Mercy is only for the deserving."

Lauriel is one of the most devoted Servants of the Great Ones, assigned as the guardian of Temple of Light. She's the head angel of the Temple and commanded the legion of angels to fight against the demonic horde of Maloch and The Fallen. She's very sincere in her job, which granted her the domain of reincarnation as well as unrivaled power of light.

Lauriel is a Mage/Assassin hero, despite her mage specialty, she's encouraged to get right into the heat of battle and rip through the enemies with light and her own immaculate mobility. Her Passive, Divine Punishment, allows Lauriel to mark enemies hit with any of her skills, which can stack up to 4 marks, in the fourth mark, the enemies gets dealt with extra True Damage and slowed down while Lauriel heals her own HP. With her first skill, The Wheel, Lauriel shoots out a beam of light in the ground, damaging enemies hit with it, and the beam lights up again, damaging anyone that still stays in the line of fire. Her second skill is Blink, where Lauriel dashes to a direction, and then shoots out three orbs of light that homes to nearby enemies. The cooldown is greatly reduced if Lauriel manages to hit an enemy hero with it. Lauriel's ultimate is Smite, where she creates a circle of light that damages enemies when the circle is created and fizzles out. When she's inside the circle, her cooldown time for all skills are greatly reduced, allowing her to spam her skills with impunity as long as she has enough mana.
  • Angelic Beauty: She's an angel, and also an extremely attractive lady.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Just because she's one of the nicest ladies in the game doesn't mean you should try her patience, she's capable of single-handedly multi-killing a group of heroes when properly equipped.
    My patience runs thin with you.
  • Light Is Good: The Temple of Light can get a bit nefarious with people like Ilumia around, but Lauriel is still a good hearted angel that flings around the light for good cause.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's blonde and she's a serene, sincere soul.
  • The Fettered: Her power comes from her sincere attitude in doing good.
  • Magikarp Power: Lauriel's early game can suffer a bit, but she's usually known as a late-game monster that can jump to three or four heroes head on... and win (five heroes might need some allies, but she has a high chance to deliver the killing blow herself).
  • Ms. Fanservice: Lauriel shows that 'Good' is sexy too, what with her Stripperiffic outfit and attractive blonde.
  • Spam Attack: Her cooldown is generally low, and gets further reduced with cooldown reduction items and her ultimate, allowing her to blink around and dealing damage on others or shooting out light blasts repeatedly.
  • Stripperiffic: Basically wears a metal bra that bares her skin greatly. She covers up her legs with very long robes, but her Divine Grace skin shows her legs and... damn.

    The Joker, the Clown Prince of Crime 
"You can't spell 'slaughter' without 'laughter'! Hahahaha!!"

Batman's most notorious Arch-Enemy, an agent of chaos styling himself as a clown that makes deadly jokes, whose past were very difficult to decipher thanks to his preference of Multiple-Choice Past. Joker, formerly a small time crook and eventually transformed into Gotham's most vicious criminal, has terrorized Gotham and attempted to crush Batman's ideal, but the Dark Knight never faltered and always ready to apprehend him and send him to Arkham Asylum. In here, he encountered a man driven into madness after discovering a portal that would lead into Athanor. After 'befriending' and getting his secrets, the Joker once again escaped Arkham Asylum and made his way to Athanor, considering it a new place of beauty and order... to be corrupted as a grand joke.

Joker is an Archer hero that sows chaos into the battlefield and harasses his target until they die laughing. His Passive, Punch Line, makes Joker reload his gun everytime he exits battle, therefore the next shot deals bonus damage and have increased attack range and temporarily reduces his target's speed. In his first skill, The Killing Joke, Joker pulls a rocket launcher and shoots in a line, damaging any enemies in the path, but it will have a reduced damage for the next enemy hit. For his second skill, Pick A Card, Any Card, the Joker will remove all his movement speed debuff and gains a movement speed buff along with immunity to normal attacks (but not skills). His ultimate is Canned Laughter, where Joker will leap to his target, stuff them with laughing gas, and vault back to his position. The gas will stun the enemy and deal damage in a short time, and for a brief time, Joker will gain increased attack speed.
  • Arch-Enemy: Batman's, naturally.
  • Ax-Crazy: An evil kind of crazy, if you compare him with Wiro.
  • Knife Nut: He's carrying an endless supply of knives that he throws to the enemy as his normal attack.
  • Monster Clown: The Monster Clown. Despite the existence of the jester-ish Mganga, Joker remain as one of the most well known jesters.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Joker is the only supervillain amongst the DC characters.

    Tel'Annas, the Ageless 
"Age is but a number."

Queen of the Elves and leader of the Forest of Shadows. Tel'Annas has fought the Lord of Darkness to protect the land for many millennial and shot a decisive arrow that mortally wounded them. However, the shot ended up inflicting a corruption within Tel'Annas, forcing her to seal herself and stave off the corruption. Maloch, successor of the Lord of Darkness, attempted to absorb the left behind dark power, but Tel'Annas' seal was too powerful. She awoke once more when Maloch initiated another invasion to humankind, once again defending humanity.

Tel'Annas is a pure Archer hero, positioning herself in the backline and shooting down her enemies dead with deadly marksmanship. Her Passive, The Morning Star, grants her bonus attack power as long as she's near a friend. With her first skill, Eagle Eye, Tel'Annas passively gains slowing effect on her attacks. When activated, Tel'Annas temporarily gains increased attack range, in addition of bonus attack power and speed. Her second skill, Penetrating Shot makes Tel'Annas shoot three arrows that damages anyone in its path, but has decreased damage for every next unit hit. However, it will also slow down any heroes hit with it. Her Ultimate, Arrow of Chaos, had Tel'Annas charge a bit and shoot out a long range arrow that damages and stuns everyone in its narrow path, and having increased damage and stun time the farther the arrow traveled and hit the target. In the same time, Tel'Annas will gain temporary movement speed bonus.
  • Archer Archetype: A calm, calculating archer queen.
  • The Ageless: Tel'Annas simply do not age, at all. She put herself in slumber, wakes up thousand years later, and she's still the same lady.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Tel'Annas is notorious that she absolutely has no reliable escape method, instead focusing on pure attack. She can wreak havoc if allowed to farm and gain her items, but if she's focused in a bad place, she almost have no means to escape.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Her arrow is imbued with the power of darkness, but Tel'Annas is a virtuous queen and has quotes to assure that her darkness is nothing to fear.
  • The High Queen: Queen of the Elves, anyone?
  • Magikarp Power: Pretty much the quintessential carry. She's extremely vulnerable in the beginning of the game, but if allowed to farm and gain her items, Tel'Annas can single-handedly turn a losing match into her team's victory.
  • Ms. Fanservice: A skin-baring, tough elven queen with pretty, long white hair? Yeah, Tel'Annas is one gorgeous queen.
  • Stripperiffic: Her clothes shows a copious amount of skin, including an Absolute Cleavage that shows a very noticeable pair of breasts.

    Valhein, the Demon Hunter 
"It's Valhein time!"

Deputy Commander of the Demon Hunter squad under the Valiant Order who took over the position after its former commander, Violet, resigned to become a mercenary. Valhein is young, optimistic and fearless in the face of danger, but hidden beneath his bravado is an immense willpower and dedication to defeat the demons of Athanor.

Valhein is an Archer hero who specializes in unloading a huge damage with his set of skills before letting his highly damaging normal attacks finish the job. His passive, Pocket Glaive, modifies every of the third attack he launched, signified with the color: Blue grants him additional mana recovery and cooldown reduction, Red deals splash damage, Yellow stuns the enemy. Throwing any of these grants him a Hunter buff that could be stacked and increases his speed temporarily. His first ability, Bloody Hunt, is similar to the Red Pocket Glaive, except with bigger damage and also gives him a Hunter Buff. His second ability, Curse of Death, is similar to the Yellow Pocket Glaive, but with bigger damage and gives him additional Hunter Buff. His ultimate, Bullet Storm, had Valhein shoot out multiple bullets from his crossbow and each hits will increase his movement and attack speed, allowing him to storm his targets to death.
