Cancelled/Unreleased Heroes

Roles

Main Article: Hero Roles

There are roles and specialties within the game but there is a distinct difference between "Roles" and "Specialties". In order to have a well functioning team throughout a game, it is important for players to know their role and their specialties within the heroes they use, as well as the differences between the two.

A role or class is a category that your character will play throughout the game. A total of 95 heroes is available at this moment in both original and advance server, which come from 6 classes – Tank Tank Icon, Fighter Fighter Icon, Assassin Assassin Icon, Mage Mage Icon, Marksman Marksman Icon , and Support Support Icon. Each of these classes has their unique stats and ability, but some of them are stronger than others.

Note: Some heroes are called hybrid or classified in 2 classes but it doesn't mean they are stronger than single classed heroes.

Tank Tank Icon

T
Tank Icon
anks
are durable, front-line champions that help lock down enemies and start fights. They're usually found leading the charge, choosing the right times and situations to initiate aggression. Many tanks can also protect their more fragile teammates by stunning or pushing around dangerous foes and limiting their damage potential. In mobile legends, most classes of heroes are really versatile in terms of abilities and with the item crafting variations a "tank" can be played as a DPS if you choose the right equipment. Usually, tanks are laning on the bottom tower. Tank has high defense and hit point, but low damage. Their high durability usually be used to pin the enemy in the center of the battlefield.


Fighter Fighter Icon

Fighter Icon
Fighters are close range combatants that possess a mix of offensive and defensive capabilities. While they don't have as much utility as a tank or as much damage as an assassin, a fighter's damage will add up over time to make it a major threat. Each fighter has a unique blend of mobility, damage, disruption and durability. Fighter is an intermediate melee heroes, between Tank durability or Assassin damage, hence make fighter serve as multi purpose combatant, such as Semi Tank, Crowd Controller, or Tank and Assassin.


Assassin Assassin Icon

Assassin Icon
An assassin is an agile champion that specializes in killing or disabling roaming targets picking them of as they try to replenish HP. Focused on infiltration, deception, and mobility, assassins are opportunistic hunters who find favorable moments within a fight before jumping into the fray. Regardless of the size of the enemy team, assassins specializes in positioning and artful killing. They strike when the time is right – no sooner, no later. Assassins are more suitable to be played by experienced players as they have low HP and a high burst of damage they are ideal to take out opponents easy, but easier to kill due to bad positioning and wrong timing.


Marksman Marksman Icon

Mark
Marksman Icon
sman
is a type of role that has a high attack/damage and critical and distance. This type is commonly referred to as carry/ADC [Attack Damage Carry]. Marksman plays an important role in the game by defeating enemies from a distance. When using this hero, be smart to keep the distance with the hero of the opponent, because this type of hero usually has low durability and mobility in the early game. Marksman heroes always rely on Tanks. When using this type of hero, you should use gears that increase your attack speed, because in addition to kill the enemy, Marksman can also destroy the tower quickly.


Mage Mage Icon

Mage Icon
A magician, (commonly known as Mage in most MOBA games) is a magic damage dealer and an important role in any team composition. Their strengths are in their abilities and not usually their basic attacks. They, however, tend to be squishy and are a priority target in team fights due to their burst damage and crowd control abilities.


Support Support Icon

The Sup
Support Icon
port
role is to aid and help protect your allies in any situation. Your role is is to shield or heal them, to tanking some damage or sacrificing yourself to keep others alive. You are often giving up the glorious kills in the game to support others, but in the end its usually the support to secure the true MVP award. Support heroes usually lane with the marksman in top lane or at mid lane in order to be able to travel quickly where they are needed.


Hero Specialty

Main Article: Hero Roles

Hero Specialty is the expertise of a hero they greatly excel in. There are 9 kinds of specialty, namely Regen, Crowd Control, Reap, Charge, Push, Damage, Burst Damage, Poke, and Initiator.

Regen

This specialty allows heroes to regenerate HP only themselves or the whole team.

Crowd Control

This specialty allows a hero in disrupting the crowd or controls the battlefield through slow effects, stun, knock up and other effects. Heroes that have this specialty are usually tanks, fighters, and mages.

Reap

This specialty helps a hero in harassing and preventing opponents from farming and pushing. Most of the heroes that have this specialty are the marksmen and assassins. This specialty helps in finishing off fleeing enemies. Spell vamp is best suitable for heroes of this specialty.

Charge

This specialty allows a hero to catch an enemy or start a team fight with blink skills like jumping. This specialty is usually for fighters and assassins.

Push

This specialty helps in pushing turrets through their skills because they can deal high damage to turrets, so they push alone. This specialty is used by fighters.

Damage

This specialty helps a hero in dealing damage in a longer period of time than Burst Damage. This is good at harassing enemies, reducing HP's opponents consistently, bit by bit. This specialty is very superior in the laning phase, where everything is still cautious in exchanging attacks and is usually used by mages.

Burst Damage

This specialty is practically the same as Damage but within a shorter period of time. This specialty is good in ganking enemies as they can finish them off in a short span and is usually used by mages and assassins. Heroes with this specialty is suitable to fight enemy heroes who have a small HP because the hero is able to kill off enemy HP quickly in a short time.

Poke

This specialty helps heroes to harass enemies, dealing little damage. This specialty is usually used by mages.

Initiator

This specialty is almost the same as Charge but is owned by those in charge of opening the fight, usually by tanks and fighters.

      • It was said that Nana had feelings for Harith, though the latter rejected and insisted that she stay clear of him in worry of her safety.
    • Carmilla Carmilla / Cecilion Cecilion (Lovers)
      • They have their unique ability when the couple heroes are on the battlefield in which Carmilla blinks to Cecilion and Cecilion with a unique shield. But it can be rejected using, Break-Up Potion similar to Jawhead.
  • Zilong Zilong, Baxia Baxia, Ling Ling, and Wanwan Wanwan are the members of Oriental Fighter.
  • In 2020, Clint Clint, Tigreal Tigreal, and Zilong Zilong's model were tweaked. White hair and small hats for Clint, Remodeled shield for Tigreal, and hairstyle for Zilong.
