  • Only increases base damage and that provided by attributes. Attack damage bonuses are not increased.
  • The bonus damage does not apply when attacking friendly units (i.e. denying own creeps).
  • When the owner's attack type changes to ranged or melee, the attack damage bonus adapts immediately.
  • Elder Dragon Form icon.png Elder Dragon Form's splash also splashes the increased damage when attacking a creep.
  • The damage Moon Glaive icon.png Moon Glaives bounces are not increased, since they are based on the attacker's attack damage value.
  • Psi Blades icon.png Psi Blades will spread the increased damage when attacking a creep.

Starting Radius: 150

  • The complete area is shaped like an isosceles trapezoid in front of the attacking hero.
  • Fully stacks with other sources of cleaves. Each source of cleave works completely independent.
  • Despite the visual effect, cleave damage is applied instantly in the whole area.
  • Ranged units cannot cleave.

Recommended heroes[edit]

Anti-Mage icon.png
  • Anti-Mage minimap icon.png Anti-Mage needs Battle Fury to farm, since he is terrible without items and has trouble farming fast without it. Combined with Blink (Anti-Mage) icon.png Blink, he can flash-farm the jungle and quickly build his much needed items if not ganked.
Phantom Assassin icon.png
Phantom Assassin
  • Phantom Assassin minimap icon.png Phantom Assassin does not necessarily need it, but it helps her farm and build items quicker. This will reduce her ability to get early kills since she would have to farm in times she could fight.
Juggernaut icon.png
  • Juggernaut minimap icon.png Juggernaut can farm really fast with it when combined with his base attack time. He can pick up the Ring of Health icon.png Ring of Health and Void Stone icon.png Void Stone at the side shop during the laning phase, allowing him to use his abilities more often and ignore harassment.
Ember Spirit icon.png
Ember Spirit
  • Battle Fury is a must for a physical damage-built Ember Spirit minimap icon.png Ember Spirit, since almost his entire damage output relies on Sleight of Fist icon.png Sleight of Fist, which can deal enormous damage with Battle Fury but little without it. Ember Spirit is also the most reliable carrier of multiple Battle Furies, since each one greatly increases his damage and unlike other carries, he stays safe during Sleight of Fist icon.png Sleight of Fist while it greatly weakens the survivability of other carriers by having multiple Battle Furies.
Tusk icon.png
  • Tusk minimap icon.png Tusk can get Battle Fury if he is built to get the most out of his Walrus Punch icon.png Walrus PUNCH!, which you will see many do. Battlefury gives him the ability to damage more than 1 enemy with his punch, giving "Carry Tusk" more teamfight presence.
Troll Warlord icon.png
Troll Warlord
  • Troll Warlord minimap icon.png Troll Warlord can get Battle Fury, but this is very situational. Troll Warlord can be a melee hero and can farm the jungle much more efficiently with Battle Fury, but he needs items which help him fight and deal damage such as Daedalus icon.png Daedalus and Monkey King Bar icon.png Monkey King Bar. Furthermore, Battle Fury's cleave will not work while you are ranged, so you will lose the cleave effect when attacking opponents from range.


  • The Battle Fury is great tool for farming but a poor choice for mid game skirmishes owing to its low damage per gold. Avoid it if the enemy team plays aggressively and your presence is required in team fights early.
  • Effective against illusions, summoned units, jungle stacks, ancient stacks and mega creeps.
    • A Battle Fury allow to farm faster than a Midas for a melee hero. You can get this item after boots start with a ring of regen if you are laning or get damage if you are jungling, then get a mobility item like Blink Dagger to reach camps faster.
  • The cleave benefits from critical hits, including those from items and ignore the armor value and evasion.
  • Having Battle Fury can help greatly against an enemy Nature's Prophet minimap icon.png Nature's Prophet, since some carries have little means to escape his Sprout icon.png Sprout without it (the most obvious being Juggernaut minimap icon.png Juggernaut and Sven minimap icon.png Sven)
  • Melee heroes with high attack speed can push far more effectively with Battle Fury, even in late game. Critical hits help too.
