DOTA 2 hero Faceless Void is getting a visual overhaul. Today, Valve took the wraps off the final design. They also revealed a few other candidates that didn't quite make the cut. Prepare to be amused.

First off, Faceless Void's actual new look:

Looks good. Still faceless, vibrantly purple, and face-strainingly upset about both of those things and a million others. Kinda typical though. Valve just made him more detailed and, um, leggy. Now for some alternative options that went a bit further, plus Valve's assessments of each.

Faceless Elf:

Pro: Attractive. Chiseled abs. Great-looking hair.

Con: No one would want to play as any other hero

Faceless Rex:

Pro: Would be popular with sought-after archeologist demographic

Con: Is large purple dinosaur -- too loveable?

Awesome-to-11-year-olds-in-the-1980's Void:

Pro: Combines best parts of every animal

Con: Too subtle

Faceful Void:

Pro: Finally has a face

Con: Oh God what were we thinking

OK yes, Valve was likely joking on most of these, but I'm not sure if I've had this much fun finding out about a MOBA character overhaul in ages. A little humour goes a long way, as do peeks behind the curtain, brief though they might be. Also, please someone get on actually adding Faceless Rex to the game, or at least armour that resembles him. I can't offer you any reimbursement, but I could, like, write a couple sentences about you. There could even be adverbs.

    Faceful Void, his is the drill that will pierce the heavens.

    So we have Elven Void, Chimera Void and Gurren Void. Interesting!
