LoR Skins: all references and easter eggs
07/13/22 0 comments
In this article you will find all references and easter eggs from all skins that were released in the game till patch 3.10.Edit Article
Zoe and TaricAll cards that appear in
Pool PartyZoe, including herself, are alongside Taric, in his level 2 art, so I only took his art and made the identification. Alongside Taric, we have Zoe and some followers: Sneaky Zeebles, Giddy Sparkleologist, Spacey Sketcher, Starry Scamp and Startled Stomper. As for
Pool PartyTaric level 1 art, we have Haley, from the card Mountain Sojourners and Tyari The Traveler, before becoming the celestial The Traveler.
HeimerdingerIn this art we have the presence of
Pool Party Syndra. The curious detail about it is that this champion hasn’t come to the game yet, but her skin already exists in League. Another skin that already exists in League is
Pool PartyGangplank, who also shows up here. As we know, Gangplank exists in LoR, but hasn’t received a skin yet. Maybe someday we will see this champion getting this exact skin? Another champion present in Heimerdinger’s art is Zoe.
FioraI love Fiora’s art! Here we have the presence of many LoR champions who still don’t have
Pool Partyskins, but are dressed with their bathing suits. They are: Lux, Garen, Darius, Katarina, Ashe and Tryndamere. The funny thing is Ashe’s face, ashamed about her husband Tryndamere, as he challenged Fiora in a duel (we all know no one can defeat her, right?). In her level 2 art from this skinline we can see the outcome of this scene, with Tryndamere being taken down by Fiora. Oh, and the only one who is in this scene who really has a
Pool Partyskin in League, outside of Fiora, is Leona, who shows up there in the left corner.
DravenI think this is the skin with the highest count of easter eggs! Let’s go, there in the left corner is The Leviathan and Orianna (who is also not in LoR yet, but her skin exists in League) and Syndra playing volleyball against Fiora and Graves, who also has a
Pool Partyskin in League, but hasn’t come at all to LoR yet. And in highlight we have many Noxus followers, which show up with more details in Draven’s level 2 art. However, I’ve already identified every single one of them in this art. They are: Kato The Arm, Shiraza the Blade, Minotaur Reckoner, Arena Battlecaster and Savage Reckoner.
Guardians of the SandsSkins
PykePyke and Ekko are the only ones who have skins from this skinline in LoR, so it was quite obvious they would appear in each other’s art, right? In
Sand WraithPyke’s level 2 art, we have the presence of
Sentinels x RuinedSkins
RivenThe Ruination event, which brought
Sentinelskins for some LoR champions, didn’t bring many references or easter eggs. The only one I found is in
SentinelRiven’s art. In it, the champion shows up facing
LeonaLeona is trying to eat in peace in the cafeteria, but there is a big food war going on and some of the people involved in this situation are two well known cards by us: Boomcrew Rookie and Zaunite Urchin.
KatarinaIn Katarina’s art we have not only existing skins in LoR (As is the case with Lux and Ezreal), but also skins which, for now only exist in League (
AcademyVladimir), and there’s
Battle AcademyAphelios, which for now doesn’t exist in any Riot’s games.
EzrealHere we have Ophelia Noradi, our dearest Crimson Aristocrat and Academy Prodigy, a Piltover and Zaun card which has never seen play, but considering its design, is quite coherent to appear in this skin’s universe.
CaitlynCaitlyn and Corina Veraza are rivals in any universe, right? Here they show up competing in a target shooting competition, in which, of course, Caitlyn is winning. And who is their teacher who shows up there in the corner? Graves himself. This skin of his already exists in League, but we don’t yet have Graves in LoR, however I believe sooner or later he will come, after all, he is already present in many of the game’s artworks.
LuxTo close up the references and easter eggs from the Battle Academia universe we have Cithria of Cloudfield showing up in Lux’s art.
JayceAlmost unnoticed in this art, we have Ferros Financier, who looks to be participating in quite an exciting conversation.
EkkoTwo cards well-known from Ekko’s follower set show up in his Gilded skin. I’m talking about Kay, from the card Practical Perfectionist and Shomi, from the card Dropboarder.
ViIn Vi’s art we have a card that doesn’t see much play, but they show up often fighting against this champion. The card is Midenstokke Henchmen.
Winter QueenAhri Here, alongside Ahri, we have Sai’nen Thousand-Tailed in a magnificent ice version.
Worldbreakerskinline, as she is responsible for waking up the titans that are going to destroy our world. In LoR, this champion didn’t get a skin from this line, but in League she has her
Sun Goddessskin, which shows up in this art from level 2
ViIn Vi’s level 1 art we have the presence of Caitlyn, with her look from the animated Netflix show (which is the same as Caitlyn’s Arcane skin, which exists in League) and in her level 2 art, we have Vi again facing the Midenstokke Henchmen.
JinxIn Jinx’s skin we have a reproduction of the scene from Arcane’s season finale! Right at the right corner we have the presence of Vi and Caitlyn. The curious bit is that Caitlyn shows up in both skins, but she didn’t have her Arcane skin released in LoR. Maybe it’s because she already has a lot of skins in the game? I don’t know for sure, but I suspect so.
Arcade x BossSkins
Battle BossZiggs’ art we have the presence of
ArcadeAhri, which hasn’t come to LoR yet, but exists in League.
NocturneBesides the presence of
ArcadeHecarim(which also came to LoR), in this art there are some follower cards from Shadow Isles. They are: Doombeast, Duskrider and Evershade Stalker. They are all fleeing from
Battle BossNocturne, who is one of the villains in this line.
QuinnBoth in this skin’s art and texts there are references to Pokémon. Yes, that’s right! Quinn is a Pokémon Trainer and in her level 1 art we have the moment that she captures Valor, here called Valorous. As for her level 2 art, we have both of them in a Pokémon battle, in which the scenery looks a lot like the Pokémon Leagues, which happen in the anime.
Miss FortuneHe appears quite small (SORRY, VEIGAR!), but we can perceive his presence, the
Final Boss, Veigar, in
ArcadeMiss Fortune level 2 art.
AniviaThis Anivia skin is a reference to a spaceship shooting game series called Star Fox. Anivia’s spaceship design looks a lot like Arwing’s, the ship in which the game’s animals drive.
InfernalKennen’s level 1 and level 2 art we have the presence of his followers: Ember Monk and Tornado Warrior.
Lucian and ThreshThe biggest rivals in the game, Lucian and Thresh, are also rivals in this skin line and they appear dueling each other in both champions skins’ artwork.
AkshanIn Akshan’s level 1 art, we have the presence of
PulsefireShen (the skin exists in League, but hasn’t come to LoR yet). Apparently, they are rivals. In Akshan’s skin text it is mentioned that Shen, in a timeline, killed someone dear to Akshan. This Akshan skin is very detailed and has a many new artworks, including one for Sandstone Charger: In this skin’s art for Warlord’s Hoard, we have the presence of the card Vekauran Safecracker:
Caitlyn and JhinThis is more noticeable when we watch the level up animations from both champions, but Jhin’s and Caitlyn’s level 2 artworks from this skin line depict the same scene. Both are facing each other and in the skins’ text there are lines from one character to another.
Rift Questskin line show up in each other’s artworks. But those of you with a keen eye must have noticed that there is one mysterious champion who didn’t get a skin, even though they show up in all other artworks. It’s
RuggedGaren, which wasn’t completed in time to come to the game alongside the other skins, but is already confirmed to come soon. Oh, and in this art that I put up there to showcase it, in its left corner, there are two characters that many suspect are Graves and Twisted Fate. I found them both, in fact, very alike the pair, but I’m not sure. What do you think?
