* Bjergsen counters Aurelion Sol. [[labelnote:Explanation]]During the 2016 Spring Split semifinals and during the Worlds later in the same year, TSM Bjergsen found himself facing Aurelion Sol in the midlane only for both matches to be interrupted and remade due to the champion presenting bugs. Thus, people claim that having Bjergsen facing Aurelion Sol will automatically cause the champion to bug and the match to be remade.[[/labelnote]]

* Syndra Outplays. [[labelnote:Explanation]]During the first half of the 2017 season on a number of occasions pro players using Syndra, a DifficultButAwesome mage that revolves around difficult manipulation of magic orbs, have simply killed opponents using GlassCannon characters by using her ultimate ability to send all present spheres to collide with the target for a huge burst of damage. This has resulted in casters and fans alike using the meme phrase to sarcastically overhype a boring play with little effort on an otherwise complex and demanding champion.

* Pocket Pick Lucian [[labelnote:Explanation]]TSM Doublelift's willingness to play Lucian was especially prevalent in the 2016 NALCS Summer split, being selected 21 times over TSM's 41 regular-season games, including an unbroken 13-game streak of only Lucian early in the split. Jokes eventually cropped up as fans noticed the trend, and fuel was added to the fire with Riot Games releasing a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsSlzDN2gIc video]] where Doublelift expounds his strategies and opinions on him. The meme eventual reaches critical mass in a dramatic championship-winning teamfight, where in the grand finals versus [=Cloud9=] Doublelift's Lucian is able to dodge several key abilities from C9, doling out nearly 11,000 damage in the counterattack to turn the tide for TSM.[[/labelnote]]

* Outplayed. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Syndra's ''Unleashed Power'' is one of the last remaining point-and-click ultimates left in the game, and it increases in damage with the number of spheres she has on the field. Meanwhile, all of her other abilities that summon or move spheres are skillshots, and so it is not uncommon for Syndra players to whiff all of their spheres, then simply cast the ultimate on an enemy to kill them regardless. "Outplayed" is thus uttered ironically, as clearly the Syndra player exemplified skill by pressing R on a target.[[/labelnote]]

* [[http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/fio954Ms0t0/maxresdefault.jpg Lucian stole my bike.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]An unfortunate side effect of the release of Lucian (the game's first undeniably "black" champion) was him getting labelled with every black stereotype out there. One of the more amusing ones was an adaptation of the "Nigga stole my bike!" meme from ''PunchOut'', portraying Lucian [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eICpR1tPbDI stealing his archnemesis Thresh's bike in petty revenge for Thresh stealing the soul of his wife.]][[/labelnote]]

* 200 IQ play [[labelnote:Explanation]]Once during his stream, pro player Pobelter [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TmQLXKyxRo claimed to have 200 IQ]]. Since then, "200 IQ play" is synonimous for "insane play" on the [=LoL=] community. [[/labelnote]]

* X coded as minions.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Once in a while someone finds a GameBreakingBug which is result of the game reading as a minion something that shouldn't, including but not limited to: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxKujLWJ4xo skillshots]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcTkMZ6X3sg turrets]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MT9IwoqPaME champions]]. Thus, people started to say that everything in the game is coded as minions. [[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:Addendum]][[AccidentallyAccurate This explanation isn't actually far off from the actual case;]] due to the game's coding foundation being built without today's massive mechanical complexities in mind, many shortcuts have to be made in order to increase efficiency (such as Jarvan IV's impassible wall ultimate being coded as minions since players can't walk through minions either).[[/labelnote]]

Added DiffLines:

** Azir disabled. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Azir is known as the most buggy champion in the game due to having unique mechanics involving his Sand Soldiers, being disabled right after his release and being a ridiculous GameBreaker that no one could play due to the bugs. As such, anytime someone complains about bugs or asks a feature to be added in game, someone is bound to comment that said change will cause a new bug on Azir and [[ForWantOfANail force him to be disabled]].[[/labelnote]]


Added DiffLines:

* 5 AD. [[labelnote:Explanation]] One infamous patch note during the Sated Devourer meta had Riot nerfing Kayle's base Attack Damage due to her being too good at jungle, while completely ignoring the fact that [[ElephantInTheLivingRoom Sated Devourer was the problem, not Kayle.]] 5 AD is now euphemism for quite a lot of situations on patch notes, such as Riot nerfing a champion instead of a broken item/mastery/mechanic or nerfing a champion's base stats when the problem is in their kit.[[/labelnote]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ON-6vYobie4 Xin Zhao]] [[RatedMForManly will make a man]] [[Disney/{{Mulan}} out of you]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Associating Xin Zhao in general with Shang from Disney/{{Mulan}} and his famous "Be a man!" training montage since they're both quintessential Chinese {{Badass}} manly men. The linked video (part of [[CholeraNinjaVideo Choleraninja's]] "I'm Bad At [=LoL=]" series) is one of the more famous propagators of the meme.[[/labelnote]]

* 1000 DEGREE CLAWS [[labelnote:Explanation]]Immediately after the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsnDbealN9E cinematic teaser]] for Warwick's rework was uploaded on the official League of Legends YouTube channel, comments comparing Warwick's new augmented claw to the "1000 Degree Knife" meme started pouring in.[[/labelnote]]

** [[IdiotProgramming "Spaghetti code."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]As mentioned with above's further addendum, copy-pasting properties that already exist with certain elements onto others usually makes for efficient shortcuts when you start, but can produce problems if things change, confusing both programmers and [[GoodBadBugs the]] [[GameBreakingBug game itself,]] which is bound to happen since the game is constantly being updated/changed. The game's programming has now been compared to "spaghetti" by both developers and fans; a giant, tangled mishmash of different, inexplicably connected elements that make changing individual strands of code tricky and bug-laden.[[/labelnote]]
