* [[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]]

* 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]][[NotHyperbole 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]]
** [[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]]

Added DiffLines:

* [[CrackFic Ezreal kissing Shyvana's leg]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Referencing [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext this bizarre shitpost asking]] [[https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/4ydkjm/what_would_shyvana_do_if_ezreal_kissed_her_leg/ "What would Shyvana do if Ezreal kissed her leg?"]] that inexplicably made it to the front page of the League subreddit, catching the attention of a few Rioters as well. Not only did this make [[CrackShip Shyvana X Ezreal]] a thing, but it also spawned [[https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/4yh8hn/fanart_shyvana_being_kissed_on_the_leg/ fanart,]] [[https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/4yga3l/shyvana_and_ezreal_continuation_of_my_snippet/ complex fanfiction,]] and even an [[http://imgur.com/KdF1aoX official in-client sale the next day for Shyvana and Ezreal skins]] [[AscendedMeme called the "Leg Day Bundle."]][[/labelnote]]
* ARH-WOOOOO [[labelnote:Explanation]]Based on [[https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/5bd458/i_love_warwick/ this random gush "shitpost"]] about [[SavageWolves Warwick]] that made it to the front page of [[Website/{{Reddit}} r/leagueoflegends]] for some reason, baffling even moderators. "ARH-WOO" has caught on the sub as shorthand for Warwick like wildfire.[[/labelnote]]

* X has Y, but Graves can't have his cigar? [[labelnote:Explanation]]The champion Graves originally had a cigar in his splash, but was later removed. As a result, anything that could be remotely adult or offensive in the game or supplementary material prompts the above response.[[/labelnote]]

** One of post-VU Gangplank's taunts to Graves is "Can't light cigars at the bottom of the sea."
** A more blatant reference was in [[https://youtu.be/RUVveKdiU_U?t=120 Yorick's Champion Spotlight,]] where while describing Yorick's Grave mechanic, Phreak notes "Also, none of the graves can have a cigar."
** In his Snow Day Graves skin, while tampering with his snowblower shotgun, he accidentally shoots a snowman head into his face, with a carrot as a cigar.

** The use of "throwing" a game is definitely not limited to League, but its usage is very popular. Teams that repeatedly blow advantages against each are said to be trying to "outthrow" the other team.
** On the other side of the spectrum, the term "carry" (originating in the DOTA scene) refers to a player or players that are performing extremely well and keeping their perhaps not-as-skilled teammates in the game.
