Everytime I look at a champion in LoL it reminds me of a character from somewhere else. So far I've managed to create 12 ''posters'', each including 4 champions.

Please let me know what you think about them and also let me know if you find characters I havent found (cuz I dont know EVERYTING out there).

Note that some of these I've come up myself, some I was inspired from other threads, and others I was simply told by people I knew.

Sejuani could be a male version of the boar guy in Bleach. Only other character I know of that rides a boar.

It's JARVAN not JARVEN. And Ashe is more likely a drow ranger than anything else.

Here's a few more:

+Leona - Lenneth, Valkyrie profile.
+Renekton - Suchos (Sobek), egipcian mythology
+Olaf - Technoviking.
+Hecarim - Ghost rider + Riders of doom + BRADWARDEEENNNNNN.
+Heimerdinger - Albert Einstein.
+Lux - Vegeta + Sailor Moon.

Vayne=huntress?
teemo=boy scout. Honestly, listen to his taunt.
Master Yi=samuri

oh, and also, Valkerie title belongs to Kayle. Sorry Polly.
Cait. Girl with a gun. Have fun with your tropes.
Veigar- I personally think he's black mage from FFT, but that's just me.
Xin is Zhao Yun? Big spear, same name.
-note- look at the Chinese Nightblade Irelia artwork. Ezio anyone?
=note no. 2. fizz is more of a murloc than anything else.

Asterix! OMGosh, Asterix is a classic. Tintin, as well; although that's only slightly related.

nice!

idea though- edit the original post to include these. It's much easier so people don't have to go hunting around.

Oh, and you might want to make a post in the Fan Art section with these too. They deserve to be there =P

You know a lot of those are intentional right? I mean Cassiopea and Medusa are both Gorgons .

Also: Leonidas wasn't a figure of Greek Mythology. He was an actualy king. Fought the Persians at the battle of Thermopylae. He probobably didn't wear a speedo while doing it (cough 300 cough) but he was there, and historians agree that he was real. Also: it was the Oracle of Delphi. Delphi was a city devoted to the Oracle.

The only other comparison I can think of is Hiemerdinger. His name is a combinaiton of Opphiemer and Schroedinger, two very influential physicists.
