I dreamed up jinx over a year ago now, I pitched her because there weren't any champions in LoL just yet who met my desires for a completely insane female villain champion, we have some ladies on the side of no-good but I really wanted a girl who is totally beyond any kind of reform or rehabilitation, I drew a lot of inspiration from the joker character (especially heath ledger's joker) and also gollum form lord of the rings, and a bit of helena bonham carter because she plays crazy people really well!

P.S. I also really wanted to introduce a different female silhouette & body type with jinx

Hope that helped!!

I think with jynx you nailed it on all accounts.

I really like her more slender physique playing on being flat chested tomb boy-ish type, sorta like tank girl. Big boobs are great and all, but I've always been more partial to the flatter fair.

As far as crazy goes - oh yeah she crazy XD

Im rather sure that a bit of the joker is in there and the similarities to tank-girl designs are also obvious

YES!!! Every time I saw someone post Shaco = Joker and Jinx = Harley Quinn I wanted to reply, "Actually, Jinx looks more like Joker and Shaco looks more like Harley Quinn" (but figured I'd get downvoted into oblivion by those who didn't see past the genders, so why bother?)

Also, thanks for the autograph on Zyra and Spirit Guardian Udyr at San Diego Comic-Con

She's not magical (is she?) Jynx seems to be heavily reliant on her guns, but where do the clones come from? For some reason this really bothers me, and some insight to your thought process would be great.


RiotTeaTime pls!

The clones there are placeholders basically - the model for the flame chompers isn't yet available on PBE. Gypsylord's sorting out an issue with them at the moment, they are indeed a trap like thing though.

I'll be honest, the Jinx clones are kinda neat. Thematically they don't fit, but it would be hilarious if they were like, miniature Jinxes with sharkheads.

@RiotTeaTime


So is this the champion from Zaun you have been working on? We've been teased with this info some time ago.
