Danil "Dendi" Ishutin is a Ukrainian Dota 2 player currently playing for Natus Vincere in the mid-lane role. He has spent over five years on the team and has been considered the most successful professional Dota 2 player in the world by fans.

Dendi began playing professionally DotA: All-Stars in 2006 with Wolker Gaming (abbreviated to WG). He was a part of the Ukraine team that finished 3rd place in the MYM Prime Nations the same year. A few months later, WG made it to the grand final of the MYM Prime Defending, one of the more prestigious DotA tournaments at the time.

On September 5, 2008, Wolker Gaming merged with KingSurf to become its international squad Ks.int. He joined DTS-Gaming one month later, but returned to Ks.int on March 18, 2009. Three months later, he jumped back to DTS-gaming which helped them secure their 2nd place finish at ESWC 2010, losing to EHOME in the grand finals. On November 14, 2010, Dendi acquired his biggest success so far in his DotA career by placing 3rd in the World DotA Championship, considered to be one of the most stacked tournaments at the time.

Dendi transferred to Na'Vi on December 25, 2010 after rumors of a "million dollar tournament" for the Dota 2 became a reality. Na'Vi won The International at GamesCom in Cologne, Germany in 2011, and continued to win many tournaments through 2011 and 2012 due to the stability of their roster compared to other teams. They placed 2nd at The International 2012.

Near the end of 2015, Na'Vi announced that their Dota 2 squad had disbanded after a disappointing season. However, a few days later they announced that Dendi and SoNNeikO would be returning to form their new Dota 2 squad.

Dendi was one of three Dota 2 players features on in the 2014 documentary "Free to Play", which covered his story leading up to and including The International 2011.
