Trivia

The Wind Waker shares its name with a renowned and beloved item from the popular video game 'The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker'. The name 'Wind Waker' in Dota 2 seems to be a nod or homage to this iconic game, which features a conductor's baton known as the Wind Waker, used by the main character, Link, to control the wind and manipulate elements.
