Batu is a powerful goblin shaman. His ability is seeing omens (which affect the orcs' future), being a skilled diplomat and speaking with the spirits themselves. Batu's omens have saved the orcs a lot of times from becoming slaves to the "Steel Men" ever again.
- Battle Cry Freedom: Batu predicts that it would be ideal to fight against slavery, which the orcs agree to.
- The Cup of Thunder: Batu translates to Kunyak there is a cup which controls waves.
- While Batu does not appear in Might & Magic: Heroes VI, a Dynasty Weapon, named Batu's Totem, is a reference to him.
