Tiny the Stone Giant is a hero from Dota 2. He is a Strength Radiant hero.
Coming to life as a chunk of stone, Tiny's origins are a mystery on which he continually speculates. He is a Stone Giant now, but what did he used to be? A splinter broken from a Golem's heel? A shard swept from a gargoyle-sculptor's workshop? A fragment of the Oracular Visage of Garthos? A deep curiosity drives him, and he travels the world tirelessly seeking his origins, his parentage, his people. As he roams, he gathers weight and size; the forces that weather lesser rocks, instead cause Tiny to grow and ever grow.

Tiny is a strength hero with amazing potential. At first, Tiny is quite squishy, not having much health; he also has a pitiful mana pool (Blink Dagger is amazing on Tiny now, because it no longer uses mana). So, you've reached level 6. You should have a bracer, boots of speed (Which, depending on if somebody else has already bought Arcane Boots, you should build into Tranquil Boots later on), and maybe a bottle (Only if playing mid, especially against mana-burning heroes such as Anti-Mage, or Nyx). You should have helped your team get 1 or 2 kills, or maybe even have gotten them yourself. Now, you upgrade your ultimate. Last hits become a bit harder here, due to the attack speed loss from Grow, but you move faster and gain a damage boost of 50, which scaled up to 150 later on. Also, you grow bigger. You shed your little tiny hill skin and grow into a larger hill. Later on you'll go from your large hill into a small mountain, and then a rocky behemoth. Your mana pool should be enough to sustain a combo or 2 without any more mana gain. Using avalanche followed by toss should mostly finish off a hero. You should have a hyperstone by now, to offset your attack speed loss; build that later into Assault Cuirass to reduce the enemies' armour, and then aim for an Aghanim's Scepter. Now, the Scepter is a very environmentally friendly item, causing Tiny to brandish a tree to smash the other team (The tree does cleave damage and extra damage to buildings, and the Scepter also adds extra percentage of damage to toss. With Aghanim's, a successful combo can do over 1000 damage, and then you can finish them off while they're stunned).
His Avalanche is a good stun to initiate, and then toss will usually finish off any escaping heroes in a mid to late-game teamfight. Utilizing Blink Dagger effectively isn't too hard, you simply teleport in front of them and smash them to bits. Tiny's pure mountain-like badassness just makes him an incredibly fun character to play.
