I realised this when I was remembering Diana's joke:

The "moon", something Diana worships and reveres in this case symbolises Leona; someone forever far away and unattainable to her. Diana's solitude still haunts her, but her chosen path of Moon worship means Leona and her can never be together.

But there are more examples!

Swain's joke shows his fear of losing his relevance on a field where grand strategy is less important than raw power, due to the League's massive political dominance. He jokes about it, but he's not getting any younger, either.

For those who don't know; Jayce prepares to fire his cannon, but shoots out confetti instead. This shows his burgeoning PTSD; he's been involved in two suprise attacks in short order, both attack and defending. He's trying to prepare his friends and collegues to be prepared for more; CONSTANT VILIGANCE.

What else can we dig up?

(Lore forums so serious atm that I thought I would make a more humourous thread)

I think that Rammus' lack of a joke clearly underlies severe trauma, perhaps caused by the crushing loneliness of being the only sentinent armodillo in Runeterra... Poor Rammus...

On the flip side of the coin though, I think you may be right. Serious conversations are abounding these days!

  • Diana's second joke was inspired by her memories of the Solari burning three outsiders at the stake for opposing their views.
  • Sejuani's boar, Bristle, is an undiagnosed narcoleptic and actually has no real control over his sleep cycles.
  • Given that he's held captive by the Institute, Renekton's joke "What? Do I have someone in my teeth?" raises a few questions about just what they feed him.

(It's a little ironic that a "more humorous" thread revolves around joking about how the Champions are all psychological messes, isn't it?)

Malzahar's joke shows his psychological trauma inflicted by the Void. His burp symbolises all the relief he felt when embracing the Void, although the relief was secluded in a bottle of pain and fear for the future of Runeterra. When he says that a voidling just came out, he metaphorically shows his mouth as a portal to the Void, and a small voidling shows all the dangers of this interplanar threat.

I have horrendous dental hygiene habits, and having all these teeth with no toothbrush is actually the source of my anger issues.

"I knew I should have sprung for that blade warranty!"

Here Riven displays how she is drowning in sorrow and regret. Her own action of breaking her sword now haunts her. What is broken will follow for the rest of her downtrodden life.
