How to Make an Apple in "Defense of the Ancients"

Shares & Saves

"Defense of the Ancients," commonly known as DotA, is a "Warcraft III" custom map that focuses on leveling heroes while advancing with auto-spawned minions through one of three map lanes. An "apple" in DotA refers to a unique ASCII symbol used in player names and in the multiplayer chat.

  • Press "Enter" to begin typing in the Defense of the Ancient's chat box. This code also works in the player name box.

  • Hold down your "Alt" key. Type "0239" on your number pad. Release the "Alt" key to create the character for the apple's stem.

  • Hold down the "Alt" key and type "0128." Release "Alt." This forms the body of the apple. Some players repeat this character twice to finish the apple symbol.
