Chen "Hao" Zhihao is a professional Dota 2 player, who is currently inactive.
Chen 'Hao' Zhihao, nicknamed General Hao by the Chinese community, is known to be one of the most aggressive players in the scene. Having joined teams such as Nirvana.cn, TyLoo, Pandarea, TongFu, Invictus Gaming, Newbee, and Vici Gaming, Hao is no stranger to LAN competitions and is also known to be extremely fervent during matches. As a carry player, he has the urge to kill which can be seen in games where he dives countless times for kills. His risky plays defines his character, and the polarizing rewards or setbacks from the outcome of his aggression can make or break the team that he plays in.

"Hao the Hand Cutter (砍手豪)", because of the words he said when he faced RoX.KIS in 2010: "Pick Spectre for me, I will cut off my hand if we're not the winner."
"Walnut (核桃)", in Chinese pop-culture, because walnuts are shaped like brains, it's believed they calm your brain when you eat them. And because he's so aggressive in-game at all times, they tell him to eat some walnuts to calm his mind.
