At first, I thought that Annie and Amumu were friends from the JoJ and from the chinese artwork for Little Knight Amumu (and from the LoL wiki)

“Amumu is my favorite champion. He’s never mean like some of the others, and he is always willing to make friends. We play sometimes after matches. I like him very much. I hope he likes me too! I guess everyone thinks he’s gross because he’s undead, but they never say that in front of Tibbers.”

But then I saw:

Now I'm not so sure.

Is this a retcon or just Annie being a pyromaniac?

Annie and Amumu are indeed friends.

This started way, way back in time (oh god, two years or more).

Unfortunately, the earliest known reference (that I know) contained a bunch of drawings... and those have since disappeared due to Riot's yearly-ish timer on forum attachments.


This concept eventually unfolded into Almost Prom King Amumu and Prom Queen Annie, being the first known connection between the two (note: while skins aren't 'canon,' they can definitely represent or reinforce it)

Maybe Annie's not very good at pep talks ... teddy bears can cheer people up, but Tibbers probably isn't very huggable.

Yes, annie and amumu are friends. I think Skribbles intentionally put in the fire thing as a reference to the JoJ. If you remember, in the JoJ, Annie tells the interviewer that Amumu is away somewhere getting "rebandaged". Probably after a cheery little demon girl tried to cheer him up the same way that cheers her up... Setting things on fire.

Annie won't date Amumu.

Because he's dead.

Who said anything about dating?

Annie wasn't the one who told the interviewer that Amumu is "visiting Bandle City to be re-bandaged." The interviewer said that.
