It finally struck me who Neon Strike Vi is an homage to.

Anime kids... Sheesh...
Im sorry that the recall animation reminds me of Franky. I am deeply regretful that I have different tastes than you your majesty. I will remember to not do it again.

All right, the Franky recall is pretty obvious, just a little added joke. However, the overall theme of the skin seems like Jubilee, the goggles from her early appearance, the neon lights, and the suit from her de-powered Wondra persona.

Isn't her recall animation the actual motion/dance that Franky does though?

Not a one piece fan... but I've seen enough of the show to know that she is obviously a reference to Franky to some degree (Cyborg like character with giant fists, blue hair, passive icon and Q icon also looks like something directly from the manga, sunglasses and identical recall animation to motions the character does), however that does not mean her inspiration was not also drawn from Jubilee... the glasses are pretty iconic.

Huh... Interesting. Still would prefer it if Riot made Full Metal Vi

the recall had inspiration (rightfully so due to her massive gauntlets) to One Piece, but you are right about the other inspiration, damn, didnt think about it, forgot about her

I would prefer she got Steel Legion, at least it would make sense on her.

My point exactly. The recall and hair remind me of Franky. Rest is probably Jubilee (I didnt know the character existed before this thread, not really into comics). OP is too busy throwing a hissy fit over the fact that I happen to like something he doesnt.

Can't the skin be referencing multiple things?

Some of the people in this thread seem to be acting like it can be only referencing one thing :/
