I don't know. Why is it called Blackfire Torch? Does it make sense? No! Ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, it does not make sense. If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must acquit.

The flames are green because it works better with zoooombiiieee fire.
It's called "Blackfire" because it sounds better that way.

......probably.

Why is it called Black Cleaver? It's not black either.

And why's it called Infinity Edge? It's not infinitely long.

And what's the deal with airline food?

Black Cleaver is another good one! I just looked at it, and it's also not a cleaver. It's a Double-Headed Axe. (Below you will see a Double Headed Axe, then a Cleaver, then the Black Cleaver)

Infinity Edge is hyperbole, so I'm going to dismiss that one. It's like "damage TO INFINITY." A lot of items are hyperbole, so I can see logic in them. However, Blackfire Torch is clearly not black fire, and the Black Cleaver is neither a cleaver, nor is it black.

Well I don't get how we wield Trinity Force. That thing is like, a hammer, a sword, and then two swords. That could be too many grips for even Jax to count on his fingers.

Also how does Cassiopeia wear the boots.

It's too many real weapons!

Pretty simple explanation.

The item was originally called Nethertorch. We made the icon based on that name. Then we changed it to Blackfire Torch. I blame creative!

I demand nerfing of the name to Greenfire Torch or back to Nethertorch. Everyone knows that black fire is inherently better than green fire. I mean seriously, who's afraid of Green fire? Black fire doesn't even light up a room - that's some scary stuff right there. Also, it provides way too much Boron for the money and combine cost and the passive is way too green.

This needs immediate hotfixing.

Where's the parrot. We need answers.
