TriviaEdit

  • Root's design (mostly his face) and name are possibly slightly based on Groot, the flora colossus from the Marvel franchise, and member of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
    • He also bears some resemblance to Maokai, from League of Legends.
  • The character itself shares a title with the Ancient Protectors from World of Warcraft, as well the some abilities from the Druid's Tree of Life Form; for example, his Blue Skill (Entangled), is similar to Entangling Roots.
  • Root's Ultimate Skill, Force of Nature, is possibly inspired by the game Plants Versus Zombies.
  • This hero is based on the Dota 2 hero Treant protector
