[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Couriers That Look Great

Courier, my sweet friend.

Within the hectic and intense battles, we tend to neglect by far the most integral part of the game, couriers! We usually overlook them as dumb or insignificant creatures but in reality, they are more than that! Couriers put themselves in trouble to fetch your precious items! They do not as for anything in return, nor do they steal your exploits! 

We have compiled this list so you can treat your couriers right and get the best skins available for them! Since every player has a courier, you better be showing off your shiny and trusty little companion!

10. Coral the Furryfish

If you’re into the flora and fauna of the deep seas like we are, you would love Coral the Furryfish. Her simplistic yet detailed and adorable model is well received and admired. Along with the model, her animations are quite cute as you see her flopping around, trying her best to deliver you your items! After level 6, you see her fly majestically as she reaches you!

9. Strongback the Swift

If you have played the game enough, you must have seen the normal courier which resembles a donkey. Well, Strongback the Swift is the cooler and more blinged-out version of the OG courier. Not only does he have extremely shiny particle effects, but the courier also has Omniknight and Crystal Maiden riding it! Talk about paying attention to detail! This courier is not everyone’s cup of tea but it manages to catch some looks as you may get complimented for it in-game!

8. Nilbog the Mad

We have an imposter here! This suspicious-looking dragon is actually a goblin in disguise! If you haven’t already figured it out, Nilbog is actually Goblin spelled backward! The model of the courier is inspired by the menacing Techies and they both were released together on the same day! There is some level of madness that has driven the creation of such a derpy yet hilarious courier. We don’t think this courier will scare your enemies away but it will surely do your job and deliver your precious items!

7. Faceless Rex

No, this is not an April fool’s joke, Faceless Rex is quite literally Faceless Void reimagined as a T-rex! Not only is this a badass courier, but it is a fresh breath from the lore strict couriers. Its release marked the remodel of Faceless Void as well. With the emergence of the metaverse, it's safe to say that there is a T-rex-shaped Faceless Void in some universe out there! It may sound terrifying until you see this cutesy little thing tumbling around and delivering items in-game!

6. Aghanim's Interdimensional Baby Roshan

Don’t let his looks deceive you guys, he knows exactly what he is doing! This interdimensional Baby Roshan is as terrifying as the adult-sized one! He manages to bend time and deliver your items on time! This version of the blinged-out Roshan was awarded to the top-scoring players in Aghanim’s Labyrinth event. This means that unfortunately, this adorable yet crazed baby demon is not available on the Steam Market. We can only sit and admire its beauty from afar!

5. Amaterasu

It's not every day that other companies decide to collaborate with Valve to promote their games! Amaterasu is a limited edition courier which was only available with the early purchase of Konami’s OKAMI HD. We are still sulking over the fact that this courier is not marketable or tradable, meaning not everyone has access to it! We can only admire its glorious wings and particles as it flies freely, without any troubles.

4. Butch

Does this seemingly normal doggo courier remind you of someone? Yes! Butch was one of the first couriers which were based on a hero, in this case, it’s Pudge! Just like him, our little guy is quite deadly with his stitches, intimidating looks, and terrifying demeanor! Butch is different from other couriers on this list as he does not have any particle effects, but does he really need them to be cute? It’s a hilarious sight to witness when Butch hits level 6 and gets wings to fly!

3. Dark Moon Baby Roshan

If you were thinking that Roshan isn’t terrifying, wait till you see this Baby Roshan! Its terrifying yet adorable gait is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face! Dark Moon Baby Roshan was available during the Dark Moon event! Don’t let his looks deceive you guys, he knows exactly what he is doing! His dark purple particle effects are quite appealing to the eye, and it only gets better when he flops his little wings around! He does look like he is about to throw your items away!

Unfortunately, we couldn’t find any listing of Dark Moon Baby Roshan on Steam Market.

2. Hakobi and Tenneko

If you love both cats and dogs then this is the right courier for you! Released during The International 6, the courier features Hakobi, the Shibe dog, and Tenneko, the Heavenly Cat! Along with the adorable models, you get to see so much attention to detail in this set, such as the well-done collar on Hakobi, the halo on Tennko, along with the dangling Healing Salve from their little bag! This is obviously a crowd favorite on this list!

1. Nian Courier

This shiny yet agile little creature is an adorable helper! Nian Courier was given during the New Bloom event during the Chinese New Year, players had a chance to obtain it by spinning the wheel! A rare chance as many may say but once you get your eyes on this cute courier, you can’t seem to look away! Also, is it just me or does the courier resemble Phantom Lancer?
