Oh, League of Legends, how you consume our lives and steal away our valuable time. We return to the Fields of Justice time and time again, to see our favorite champions -- and to kill with them.
As a follow-up to our hilariously popular "Top 10 Manliest Men in League of Legends" list, here is another list for the fairer sex. No, it's not about the hottest women, because if you know League of Legends at all, then you also know most of the women are unreasonably attractive. That would be way too obvious, anyway.
Instead, have this list of exceptionally deadly ladies. They may not be the most lady-like, but when has that ever mattered in battle?
1. Sejuani - Victory or DEATH!
What makes Sejuani such a terror? She's basically Tryndamere meets Olaf, with breasts. Sure, Lissandra's the ancient evil of the Freljord Trio, but unlike Sejuani, Liss is happens to be made of paper and doesn't ride around on a giant, pissed off boar.
When Sejuani and Bristle are coming at you, it can only mean one thing: YOUR ASS IS HERS. And as you get slowed or frozen in place by her icy attacks, you remember that the Winter's Wrath doesn't actually need her entire team at her back to finish you off. Nope, she can do that herself, even while she's built like a tank, and the woman's got ways of keeping you from running.
Sure, Ashe is supposedly the Chosen One or some garbage, but Sejuani's not going down without a fight. Who cares if the archer has Avarosa's bow? Sejuani and Bristle don't. And one way or another, she'll unite the Freljord under the Winter's Claw by dragging the other tribes kicking and screaming into the golden age.
2. Jinx - Pow Pow says, "BOOM!"
Jinx, appropriate nicknamed "The Loose Cannon," hasn't been in the League for very long. She hasn't needed much time to make an impression, though. When it comes down to it, Jinx is really just a young woman with too much time on her hands, and an overactive imagination ensures she'll spend it getting into all sorts of trouble in Piltover. If you're willing to look past her insanity and complete disregard for her fellow man, the girl is really quite charming!
In truth, we don't know a whole lot about Jinx, except for the clear fact that she loves mayhem. When she's not personally causing it, Jinx dreams about it -- explosions, giant monkeys, vandalism, and more explosions. The girl is like a smoothie of crazy, boredom, and giant guns. Really, is anyone surprised that she's such a headache for Vi?
Despite how unloved she is in Piltover (and a somewhat lacking backstory), Jinx is welcomed into the League with open arms, and most of us would never want to see her go. We're not sure how Pow Pow is so strong, but you better watch your ass, because he and Jinx are gonna mess you up.
3. Caitlyn - Leave the fuzzy cuffs.
Who hasn't been on the receiving end of "Ace in the Hole" and thought to themselves, "Shoot, I wish I hadn't already used Barrier." One minute, you think you've gotten away, but then a laser marks you for death, and no one on your team wants to take the hit for you. Boom, headshot.
Caitlyn is a simple kind of girl. She's straightforward, and doesn't need much more than her gun and wits to catch her targets. Thankfully, this woman is on the side of good, as one of Piltover's finest.
Her rifle, a custom-made work of art, hits about as hard as you might expect just by looking at the thing. With both range and firepower on her side, she's not easily evaded. And even when you think you might have gotten away, that bear trap you didn't notice before is suddenly keeping you still. Then, she knows exactly where you are. Don't feel too bad about getting caught. After all, Caitlyn only uses the most effective bait for her traps: delicious cupcakes.
So far, only one outlaw has been able to elude our sharpshooting detective. Time will tell if the mysterious "C" will ever show their face in the League.
4. Ahri - Dem ears, dem tails.
Ahri is a charming girl who thrives on the souls of men. Oh, right. That might be a problem. Like the fox spirits of Asian lore, Ahri is a cunning creature who seduces with ill intent. She kills her targets to feed on their spiritual essence, all in hopes of becoming fully human one day.
You wouldn't think a fox girl would be much of a threat, but her charms are at work even in battle. Able to draw a target closer against their will or chase them down for a quick kill, Ahri is easily one of the deadliest women in the League of Legends. Time and time again, we've seen that Ahri is more than a match for her fellow champions, capable of taking out even the toughest warriors in one-on-one duels.
Even if you do manage to come out on top in a fight, she'll be gone in the blink of an eye, leaving behind only her jeering laughter. That damn sly fox.
5. Elise - SPIDERS! Kill it with fire!!!
A spider queen? Only a matter of time before we saw one of those pop up. Elise preys on a very basic fear we all have, that which makes grown men shriek at the sight of something with eight legs or more. Despite looking like a woman, Elise is a monster, both figuratively and literally.
Elise is much older than she looks, thanks to the sacrifices she regularly makes to Vilemaw. By feeding her loyal followers/cultists to the beast, she's free to drink its venom, thus granting her immortality for another unspecific period of time. The venom imbues Elise with more than just longevity, however, but also power. She can become a monstrous spider at a moment's notice, and spawns spiderlings to do her bidding. Hide all you want, her babies can still find you. Yeah, she spawns baby spiders. Gross. Grossgrossgross.
Like any proper spider lady, she can appear almost out of nowhere for to catch her prey. Anyone who tries to run gets ensnared in her web, to await whatever painful death Elise has in mind. I'm pretty sure she sucks out your insides first... Ew.
6. Vayne - Joke? What joke?
Ah, Vayne, once a naive and privileged young woman who went by another name. Sadly, she learned overnight that the world can be a cruel and terrifying place, and as a result, became the
Batman Night Hunter. When Vayne lost her family to a witch, she knew she could no longer ignore her father's warnings. With the money left to her, she took up arms and trained to become a killer, dedicating her skills to hunting creatures of darkness. That's pretty might why she's here in the League of Legends: Vayne want sto kill about half the champions.
With an exceptionally black and white view of the world, leading her to belief that the League must be "purged." Vayne goes into battle armed with a small crossbow, and the ability to disappear from sight. Don't let size fool you, however, because that crosshow hurts like hell. Couple its firepower with her deadly aim, and you'll have a dead target in no time.
Good luck trying to run. While her weapons don't give her the best range, the
Dark Knight Night Hunter has the speed and skills to catch up and kill you in a flash.
7. Annie - Have you seen her bear Tibbers?
Annie is an adorable little girl, but she's also well on her way to becoming a sociopath and arsonist. The little kid who abuses her godly powers with no remorse is certainly a cliché, but that doesn't make her any less terrifying. And if the power to shoot fire from her hands weren't enough, Annie can turn her teddy bear into a rampaging behemoth, and anyone who's ever been on the receiving end of that can tell you it's not fun. Aced? I think so.
Tibbers isn't just any ol' teddy bear either. No, he's actually a demon bear that Annie managed to tame when she was just two years old. And you thought being a Pokemon trailer was impressive. Go figure, this is what happens when a witch and a warlock decide to start a family together in a place called the "Voodoo Lands." Who the hell goes there thinking it'd be a good environment to raise your kid? No wonder she turned out to be such a little psychopath.
Kids, playing with matches is most definitely wrong. Don't do it.
8. Kayle - A vision of Utopia.
Poor Kayle. Even with her kickass design, Summoners just did not appreciate her at all. Not surprisingly, our fiery angel of justice was gifted with unearthly beauty, but you would never have guessed that just by looking at her. She hides her face beneath a helmet, and wears a full suit of armor into battle -- no boob cups, even. That, coupled with her then-underpowered and hybrid kit, put Kayle below the community's radar. She was, for a time, destined to fade into obscurity.
Then came three whole freaking remakes, and finally, League's very own archangel has risen in the ranks. She isn't exactly part of any meta, but when you're the only champion in the whole League who can completely nullify any and all damage, even for a few seconds, you're worth something. We've seen her as a counter pick against the many assassins who would otherwise wreak havoc across the Fields of Justice. She can save a life, and turn the entire tide of battle. And if you leave her alone, as so many players are prone to doing, then you'll find yourself dangerously close to death as she shreds your armor and resistance hit by hit.
And despite that pretty face of hers, it's not one of mercy. Kayle serves the side of justice, and she's the very dictionary definition of Lawful Good. If she won't hesitate in cutting down her own sister, I don't see her going easy on anyone else.
9. Ezrael - You belong in a museum!
Ezrael is a world-class explorer. The best of the best, in fact. He-... Wait a minute.
Well, the kid was a pretty good match for Taric. And just look at those lovely golden locks.
We should move on.
10. Lux - Double rainbow in the sky.
Also? Overly Attached Lux is a thing, and as much as Jinx will try to contest this, we will never forget that Lux came first and she's a total homewrecker. Once upon a time, many of us joked and laughed over Ezrael and Taric's not-so-forbidden love. Yes, it was funny, but after a while, that joke turned into a LoL meme, which made it feel pretty real. Then Riot decided Lux and Ezrael would be an official thing.
Now that Lux has her claws in poor Ez, do you want to be the one who tells her to let go? I wouldn't, and not just because she's so cute. If her maniacal, ear-piecing laughter is any indication, the girl's likely got a few screws loose in her head, and she can materialize a giant laser beam out of nowhere and snipe you across the map with it. You know, for an ult with such an obvious visual warning, you'd think it'd be easier to just sidestep. Then again, she could just trap you several feet away and laser your face point blank.
