Sun’s ability to clone himself is the center of his skill set. It amplifies his damage output, and at the same time, confuses the enemies. These clones serve as a decoy that becomes the target of enemy attacks, making it harder for players, especially the new ones, to focus their offense towards the fighter hero.

Worry no more! This guide will teach you how to identify the real Sun from the clones.

Once Sun is within your hero’s attack perimeter, his portrait will appear just above the skill buttons. Tap this and a cursor will point where the real Sun is regardless of the clones he produces. This will also lock all your attacks and skills towards the enemy monkey.
