This is the funniest post I've seen on the forums.

But in some seriousness, Riot does push the sexist stereotyping a little bit.

Consider: Name 5 female junglers or 5 Male mages.

Who knows, I might actually support if there was a Graves-like badass that healed. (yeah right)


A lot of Champions are very similar in look and feel (appearance, and skill-set) so a little out of the box ideas couldn't hurt. Therefore, girls might consider going top lane/jungle since they dont instalock ahri, annie, lux, sona etc.



On that note, I'm super excited for Vi (Franky, anyone?). I recall seeing a idea for a "boxer" champion somewhere on these forums, with very similar abilities suggested by a player.

moar diversity please

I can understand the confusion what with Taric and all, but have you met Leona?

Clearly manly is not unique to men because she is a BOSS. Also, she looks like the sun picked a spokesperson for beauty. Which is kinda accurate actually...

Shyvana, Sejuani, Diana, Evelynn, Kayle

Malzahar, Xerath, Twisted Fate, Viktor, Swain. I can name 5 more: Galio, Brand, Gragas, Ziggs, Karthus. And I can name another 5: Fiddlesticks, Kassadin, Mordekaiser, Rumble, Ryze. I could name more, but I think you get the point.

I can maybe sort of see your point with female junglers, there aren't much more than what I listed, but we have PLENTY of male mages.

EDIT: Proving the above poster's point, we have some overlap with our 5 selected female Junglers, but I went out of my way to pick 5 completely different male Mages

Ryze is also THE Mage of the League of Legends. He's like, the iconic mage in this IP.

EDIT EDIT: No fair, die4769

Yeah well played..... :/ how bout female top laners? Riven, Diana, Kayle, Elise, Poppy come to mind.

Can you guys help me think of any more besides these 5? Looked through all the champs but these are the only ones that came to mind.
