Removed Data
Sometimes things are better removed than saved. OP.TGA
To do:
As most of everything in this main page is wrong and/or too dated to be accurate at this time, it should be rewritten and have proper image rips.

Regional Differences

To do:
Get comparison rips.

A number of changes were made in the Chinese version due to various reasons:

  • Splash arts and profile icons are different with the latter using "chibi" versions of the champions.
  • Karthus's face was removed due to skulls being forbidden in media.
  • Free champion rotations are different.

Additionally, also present in Korean servers, are different lobbies.

Unused Images

To do:
Apparently there's more.

Old Corki Splash Art


League of Legends Corky Splash 0.jpg

For some reason his name is mispelled as "Corky".

"Web" Images

League of Legends Shen Web 0.jpg League of Legends Vladimir Web 0.jpg

Present in \deploy\assets\images\champions\ are two images that end in "_Web_0.jpg": Shen_Web_0.jpg and Vladimir_Web_0.jpg. Their purpose is unknown.


Present in deploy\assets\images\abilities are some unused icons for unused abilities. They are unlike other icons as they have multiple sizes within the image.

Tabu is a champion which was in development during the game's beta but was scrapped. Visual and gameplay similarities seem to indicate he might have been reworked into who is now Swain. His ability icons still remain in game files. Tabu is referred to as "48th Slave" in game's files, it is unknown why.
