The series gives a new life to the mythical and animated characters that existed in the League of Legends universe. The first season of the show features Piltover and Zuan, and till now, it has featured a few League of Legends champions. In this article, we will be talking about the League of Legends champions in Arcane.
League of Legends Champions in Arcane
Arcane has to be one of the most epic video game adaptations as it has an engaging narrative and appealing art style. The show revolves around the elements and characters from League of Legends, and out of 157 champions, it features 9 in the first season. Given below are the League of Legends Champions you get to see in Arcane:

Vi is depicted as the main character in the show, and her story moves in synergy with her sister, Jinx. Earlier, many gamers used to speculate if Vi and Jinx are sisters. Well, yes, they are. The first scene shows Vi and Jinx, also known as Powder, as babies, and as the show moves along, they are delivered to head onto different paths in life. It is shown that Vi was born in Zuan and lost her parents at a very young age, and later was adopted by Vander. Eventually, Vander passes away, and Vi ends up in prison for a couple of years. Later in the show, she is freed by Caitlyn, who becomes her partner.
Jinx, also called Powder, is Vi’s baby sister and was adopted by Silco after Vi abandoned her. She is depicted to have a problematic childhood that she suffers through with her sister, Vi. Due to all of the childhood trauma, she develops some psychological issues. It is shown in the series that Silco teaches her to channel her rage in a way that helps her in defeating her enemies.
Ekko is usually known as Little Man and was featured in the first few scenes of the show. Later, he emerged as the leader of the Fireflies and became one of the main characters of the show. Without Ekko being in the picture, Benzo would have been irrelevant, and Vi would not have gotten proper information regarding every development to keep going on. Ekko gains powers through which he can easily manipulate time, and that has been very well-proven in the game as well.
Signed was featured in the first episode where he is shown performing science experiments for Silco on some forced participants. He also develops a drug named Shimmer that helps increase the force and violence of the consumer. Singed is portrayed as a villain who works for Silco, much more evil than Singed in the series. Even though Singed does not have an elaborate role in the show, he does leave a mark.
Caitlyn is a Cupcake Cop. She is portrayed as a brat in the show. Her being in the show is very obvious because if Vi was in the show, Caitlyn had to be there. Initially, she was shown as the person who believed in Jayce before the Hextech idea was implemented. Post time jump, she is depicted as a complex character in Arcane.
Ryze is known as the most powerful sorcerer in Runeterra and is on a quest to get the most potent artifacts and protect them from going into the wrong hands.
Ryze made a brief cameo in the first two episodes of Arcane. He is shown in a sequence where Jayce and his mother are stuck in a blizzard. Ryze uses his powers to teleport both of them to Piltover. Even though he is given a very small role in the series, his character has left a particular impact, and we are all hoping that we might see more of him in Season 2 of Arcane.
Jaye is considered to be the most competent person ever in Piltover. But in Arcane, he is shown like he is naive rather than arrogant, as shown in the League of Legends. He strives to make the life of the people better with his inventions and is also known as “The Man of Progress” or “Defender of Tomorrow.”
Heimerdinger is the main character in Arcane and makes sure that everyone is hooked to him. He is a Yordle and is the only non-human Champion in the show. Heimerdinger acts as a guiding spirit to the people of Piltover. He is intelligent and adorable at the very same time. But in Arcane, he does not add much impact to the scenes.
PS: Arcane never explained any significance or origin of Yordle in any of the episodes.
Viktor is a scientist with a story of rags to riches like Jayce but with even more hardships due to his origin in Zaun. Also, Viktor is not too lucky or does not have the good looks like the others in the show. But he is depicted as a brilliant man and an excellent inventor. Unlike what we all anticipated, Viktor has been shown as the main character in the show, where we get to see him flourish like Jayce, and we also get to see his backstory with Singed.
These are some League of Legends Champions in Arcane. While these are only 9 out of 157, we are anticipating that we might see a lot more of them as the show proceeds. Stay connected with omggamer.com for more gaming updates.
