Alistar: Thrall
Taric: WC3 Paladins
Jarvin: Arthus
Cho'Gath: Violator from spawn
Dr.Mundo: Dr.Jekel and Mr Hyde
Nocturne: WC3 Shade
Blitz and Rumble look like they're a reskined Shredder from WC3.
Master Yi: Blademaster from WC3

Who ever doesn't have a specific character attached to them is usually just a generic theme

Brand: Fire elemental
Zilean: Time Wizard
The 3 ninjas: Ninjas


The list goes on. I can't name what all of them are but i could do most but thats 70+ champions to list and thats just to big of a post.
You over generalize- Alistar has many differences from thrall: and all they have in common is that they were both made to fight as gladiators and later escaped.

How is Jarvan a copy of Arthus? They are both princes who fight? Is that really all you get from their stories?

Your basically taking anything like a champion in LoL and calling them rip-offs because they didn't reinvent the wheel.

(While ignoring what sets them apart.)

I'm certain that Rengar and Kha'Zix are based off Alien Vs. Predator.
I also think that Twitch is based off of Master Splinter from TMNT and Zed is based off of the Shredder. But Zed's skin looks like he's based off of Sub Zero from Mortal Kombat.

Ahri is based off the Nine-tailed fox from various eastern myths. <.<

Miss fortune is a rip on Bond Girls and fan service in general. While providing it at the same time

And of course theres the connection between the Mount Targon champions and the greco-roman gods of Mount Olympus. Its ridiculously direct in some of their cases others just draped in connected imagery, like 300.

Kassadin's design is very similar to that of Zeratul or maybe just a Protoss zealot in the Starcraft series

I'm guessing Diana is based off of Artemis the god of the wild who's roman name is "Diana" and is the goddess of the moon
