No he doesn't. He burst the carry down to 10% health and then either has to bail or die. But I do agree that a lot of not only the noxus assassins but assassins in general are more ninjalike than actual ninjas.

Talon and Kat, and even Rengar is ninjalike in that he hides in the bushes, jumps out to kill someone, and then trololos away.

And while we're on teh subject what's with making a fully armored Spartan an assassin? Pantheon is a Spartan which is a hoplite warrior and back in the day they WERE the tanks.


im sure you are one of those guys who builds warmog on talon.

"I'm a ninja"
*charges through 5 enemies, gets their attention and makes them attack him*
Seems like his skillset belongs to a warrior, not a ninja.

Shen is simply following the principals of Balance. It would be Unbalanced if he did Tons of Damage, so instead he Balanced his approach by charging you and instead of attacking you you attack him!

Demacia needs some new Lawful Stupid champions IMO.


Some sort of fanatic paladin/cleric type Damacian support champ would be cool

A ninja (忍者?) or shinobi (忍び?) was a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan who specialized in unorthodox warfare. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, and assassination, and open combat in certain situations.[1]

Not all ninjas are assasins. Not all assasins are ninjas.

Shen is the decoy ninja.

He's actually meant to draw attention. The bigger clans have members for this kinda thing. Cause it's smart.

And in a game like LoL, where everything is visible. Subterfuge is out of the question.

Shen is more like the janitor for ninjas. He simply cleans up the mess.
