Bill Cipher

Triangle

(Despite this not being a Blizzard character, I still fleshed out the hero concept and details to make it a very interesting idea)
Bill Cipher is a being of pure energy that originates from a warped and twisted dimension. He is capable of most anything imaginable, but has no physical form. So his power lies in making deals with those who have a dominion in the realm they reside in. Before his defeat in Gravity Falls, he invoked the ancient power that he would return. And so he did, now seeking to being his party to the Nexus. Yroo Xrksvi Girzmtov!

Combat Trait

1
It's A Deal!
While in the mindscape, Bill can warp to an ally within a medium range and offer them a deal. Different deals can be obtained though talents. The ally must channel for 1 second to accept the deal. If they accept it within 5 seconds, an event will occur depending on the deal offered. Sometimes, the deal requires that Bill or the partner ally must pay a price. The deal's name will be displayed above Bill and is only visible to allies. If they don't accept, the cooldown is refreshed.

Primary Abilities

1
Laser Blast
Cooldown: 3 seconds
Range: 3


Bill channels a laser from a targeted point to another the targeted point within casting range. It deals 181 (+4% per level) damage to enemies.
(Can only be used with a Physical Form)
2
Bubble of Madness
Cooldown: 6 seconds
Range: 10


Bill summons a bubble of pure madness that travels slowly in a line. Any enemies it passes through are silenced and forced to dance for 1.5 seconds.
(Can only be used with a Physical Form)
3
Enhabit a Body
(Active)
Cooldown: 10 seconds
After 0.5 seconds, Bill takes over the body of a minion (enemy or ally) using it as his Physical Form. Upon entering a body, he substitutes the minion's health with his own, manipulates its stats, and can interact with objectives. Reactivating the ability ejects him back into the mindscape and begins the cooldown. If Bill dies without taking heroic damage, it doesn't count as a death.

Special Mount

1
Wander the Mindscape
(Passive)
Bill Cipher passively roams outside of the physical realm. Without a Physical Form, he is unable to attack, use certain abilities, or interact with objectives.

Believe it or not I had a similar idea in mind but I guess you beat me to it. Still I think you did a much better job than I would have done. Great

I appreciate the comment dude! I'm glad people seem to like my concept. I have lots of HOTS concept ideas that aren't from the 4 main Blizzard games.

I really LOVE this concept! It's very intresting choice of style for one of my favourite Gravity Falls characters! One thing I would change though is that his abilities, especially bubble of madness, doesn't really fit his character when he is not in the "weirdmageddon state". But great job!

I'm glad you like it! I did my best with his abilities. 1: I wanted to make it so he could do SOMETHING without his teammates. 2: MOBA concepts for cartoon characters are pretty hard.
