What defines her as a character is the fact that she's a crazy over-zealous angel.

All the other characters don't let their gender define their character, it wouldn't be that way with Kayle.



One of the mark of good character design is making the character immediately identifiable.

Straw Feminism, super strong.

Most women in the United States average around a C Cup.

That's something I'd like them to incorporate into Nidalee.

That was never the entire extend of the argument. It was that not every female character should be oversexualized and that we should have greater diversity in the female design. To many female champions play to more of the succubus archetype.

The Champ Team has been working hard to up our variety in both art and mechanical design. We're just getting started....next year's line up is looking pretty wild!
Ohai, Pabro!

She gives off a very roller derby vibe, which I absolutely dig, just out of curiosity was this an actual influence on her style?

Also: Nami who?

I'm incredibly pleased with this champion.
I can only hope that Riot will keep her as she is and not add in any 'sexy' skins.

So long as their not MF/Sona big, I don't see the problem.

And so long as she's sufficiently kickass, I certainly don't see the problem. A woman who punches things the **** out with massive gauntlets? And you're thinking about her breasts?

Perhaps it's this kind of thinking that's ultimately the problem.

Normally I wouldn't throw my two bits in on something like this, but I think the Champ team really brought this one home. I've been pretty excited to see her rolled out to the public, and from a visual and thematic perspective it's awesome to see a girl who kicks so much butt and does it in a rough and tumble way.

Kudos to everyone who made her happen, from the awesome concept art all the way up to the finished product. Glad to see I'm not the only one that digs her!

Please, oh please, don't listen to people complaining about the short hair. Vi is looking awesome, and the more variety on champs the better.
