Stitches is a character from the Warcraft series. While a warrior-type character, he can be customized to take on a siege role.
Take care when traversing the shadowed trails of Duskwood... Ever since Abercrombie the Embalmer unleashed his abomination upon Darkshire, Stitches has wandered the road aimlessly, hungering for the flesh of low level Alliance players.

- Stitches was conceived within the first two years of the game's development.
- Stitches was present in the original Blizzard DotA mod. In his backstory in this version, he was summoned from the depths of Azeroth and modified with cybernetics by an unknown necromancer. However, he didn't know how to use most of them, so fell back on a more familiar ability: vomit. In the 2010 build, he was known simply as "Abomination."
- In this early build, he had a "good" and "evil" version, as did each character in the game. As a "good" hero, he was outfitted with CMC armor, whilst he was clad in ultralisk parts as an "evil" character. He was under consideration to be given an appearance that bore resemblance to the Butcher.
- A tough hero, Stiches gained benefit from strength items in this build. He was similar to DotA's Pudge. He had the following stats:
- Life: 5+
- Attack: 1+
- Abilities: 2+
- Speed: 2+
- And the following abilities:
- Disease Cloud
- Putrid Bile
- Unholy Carapace
- In previous builds, Stitches' hook could grab an enemy and pull them to him. If the enemy moved out of the way, the hook could miss. Stitches could even grab an enemy he wasn't aiming at.
- Stitches was chosen for inclusion by the game's art team. Due to his physique, he would be able to stand out.
- Stitches had a skin that was Diablo-themed, but this was rethought as it was too similar to The Butcher.
- Old skins
