Far be it from me to question the otherwise airtight logic of LoL's mechanics...

But why is Darius being played up as the gruesome champion? Vayne fires bolts at people so huge, they stick to the wall. Garen hacks at people with a sword bigger than his entire sister. CHO'GATH EATS CHUNKS OUT OF PEOPLE. But suddenly Darius is the guy that draws blood. What, did I miss some footnote somewhere that said Akali actually only attacks by using the handles of her kamas as clubs? That Katarina throws her knives handle-first? Cho'gath forgets his dentures?

I lol'd, Riot. Not out loud, but mentally. Ahahahahaa, said my mind. And I agreed with it.

Because that's his theme, his character. Kog'maw EXPLODES. It's nasty, but not tremendously gory because it doesn't need to be - he's still supposed to be cute. Darius's character is all about brutality and extreme, gory violence, so they play that up in his animations. Akali is a ninja dedicated to balance, so it would be pretty weird to have her dripping with blood and ripping out intestines. Realistically you might see it, but in a cartoon-style game with highly varied character design, it would be very out of place to make everyone that violent.

Far from being the literal stuff of nightmares, Nocturne actually daylights as the owner and operator the local Demacian Orphanage.
