There are no DotA ports. There are a few champs who can be considered thematically similar though. Blitz is analogous to pudge. I've always thought of Amumu as DotA's Rooftrellen because of the similar ultis (though nothing else is alike).

EDIT: Karthus can be considered LoL's Zeus because of the trademark ultis. Garen shares Soul Reaper's ulti.

But really though, aside from Blitz who has a hook + disable combo similar to pudge, any similarities to DotA heroes are based off of singular skills.

Ashe is sort of a mash up between Drow Ranger and Mirana

Nautilus, will be like Tidehunter.

Since his kit was pretty much confirmed, yes, I can say that.

None are direct ports. What LoL did was take 4 different skills from dota champs, and mix them into 1 champion. Zeus/TB ult into karthus ult. Torturer(hon name) ult into karthus aoe thing. Pudge/Dev hook for blitz, the list goes on forever. But the point is that none of the champs are directly skill for skill ported, which sucks in a way as I'd love to have Armadon/birtleback in this game, but also cool because it was more original.

After watching a favorite streamer play a great game of DotA2, WehSing, I came across the conclusion that Tiny and Chogath are pretty ****, yet subtlety, similar to one another... think about it.

Nothing....
Only HoN and obviously DotA 2 have ports.

Some may have a same mechanic/ability or two but that doesn't make them ports.
