Marisa is also the inspiration for Lux if you didn't already know.
Oh, it's a series of games? That's interesting. PC platform? Damn, there are so many results on Google that I can't get precise info.

EDIT:

Nvm, got it on NyaaTorrents. Great site, btw, if you don't know it.

Diana does not give off that image. She looks like she's ready to kill. Zyra does not seem like that either, much like Diana she looks ready to fight. Katarina appears to be literally jumping in for the kill.

Basing things on looks, we have a lot of "badass" female characters. You're going lumping in certain champions based on knowing their lore and twisting it, not by their appearance or anything like that. Half of your female characters look like things we already have in League.
I'm also taking into account the lore too, and what kind of feeling it gives off to the player once they know the champion, and looks at the champion while keeping in consideration of the lore.

There's only so much grittiness to be had from a game series based on cute girls in frilly dresses shooting sparkly bullets at each other.

Not that that makes Touhou Project any less awesome for other reasons, just that it seems to be a strange example to give.
lol, i was surffing around the "badass" pool on danbooru, an awesome image site, but with an abnormally high number of NSFW and Touhou pics.

I think what league is missing is some vile looking women champions. The only problem is, which they've stated time after time again is finding a way to create such a character and making it mix with their "world" which they've created. Of course, there is never going to NOT be a new female champion that isn't beautiful or "sexy", for lack of a better term. It's just a lot harder to make characters that are "ugly" and have them fit in the world and battle grounds.

Sure, they could make some "ugly" female champions, think something like...a witch like woman, with different colored skin, maybe a big nose, etc etc. But the problem is, what does she do, who is she, where is she from, how does she work with the league of legends world?

As far as uniqueness, the question is whether or not it all makes sense, and meshes with what the community wants. I wouldn't fret though, they've heard your voices, and they've seen the threads about wanting more "grotesque" like female champs, and I'm sure they won't disappoint. Remember, they're making a game, and always producing more and more for us, and that's what they want. For us to be happy with what they make. It's been proven time and time again that they do hear us, by either remaking certain champs, nerfing others (to an extent), changing splashes, etc etc.

Again, don't worry, we'll get those female champs eventually, it just takes time to work out.
