* AcceptableTargets: Rule number one if you are Brazilian playing in any server other than your own: Do not, under ''ANY'' circumstances, say you are Brazilian, or ever say anything like "BR" and "Huehuehue." If you do? Expect ''MASSIVE'' {{Flame War}}s to break out and ''loads'' of UnfortunateImplications. [[note]]Except if you are trying to poke fun at Mordekaiser and his related meme.[[/note]] In fact, just speaking in Spanish or Portuguese (the distinction doesn't particularly matter to English speakers) draws fire, especially if the individual(s) can't speak a little English for the sake of important communications. This applies especially since the server splits, any encounters with the aforementioned speakers tends to get the reaction "why aren't you people gone already?".

** When Sion got reworked, one of his jokes with Urgot is claiming that they can't hang out as 'overlooked ugly old champions' anymore because he's reworked and cool now. At 2017, Urgot received a rework on par and probably better than Sion, so Urgot is now cooler and maybe Sion wants to hang out with him again now.

* MisaimedFandom: On almost every single one of Phreak's champion spotlight videos, there are people saying that his builds don't work that well or that he plays terribly. Despite the fact that these videos are to demonstrate the ''mechanics'' of a champion, rather than how to play them well. Possibly this is the reason he no longer recommends builds in spotlights.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHJ49zbGOW8&feature=youtu.be This]] video by the Riot Games Support channel is meant to warn players about free RP scams that pop up all over the place online, but since most people don't fall for them to begin with, many viewers [[DistractedByTheSexy pay more attention to]] [[MsFanservice Tristana]] instead.

** Although not so big as Teemo, Ezreal, while [[GermansLoveDavidHasslehoff famous in the Japanese community]] for his {{Bishounen}} looks, is a BaseBreakingCharacter AND an inverse (and literal) AmericansHateTingle example. Firstly, he's getting to be like an ADC version of Darius. Due to his skillshot-ladden skills, he requires precise aiming to be effective, in which to some players, translate as a way to entitle themselves as the 'best thing ever' and being a carry, they will be the cornerstone of many strategies and act very toxic if things don't go their way. And conversely, when one lacked the skills of proper aiming, Ezreal will turn out to be useless. Making matters worse is his design. It's not too infuriatingly cute like Teemo, but with his {{Animesque}} design of [[{{Bishonen}} a pretty boy]] (or if you also take account his possible MarySue elements above), Ezreal gets additional flack for 'not [[RatedMForManly being manly enough]]' and often used as a ButtMonkey for that reason. Of course, VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends IS a western game, and [[AmericanKirbyIsHardcore manliness]] [[ValuesDissonance is worshiped greatly there]].

*** A near-exact repeat of this happened again with Piltover's lore updates in late 2016, except this time, ''neither'' of the two were sympathetic, with Viktor wanting to turn humanity into robots at the cost of free will, being portrayed as a generic cartoon bad guy instead of the sympathetic WellIntentionedExtremist before, and Jayce is given more clear shades of being a flat-out {{Jerkass}}, but played up as yet another MartyStu. It seems they were trying to go for a GreyAndGrayMorality situation where BothSidesHaveAPoint, but the result just makes ''both'' of them unlikable, making the exact same mistakes as they did before they were fixed.

Thankfully, at least for Viktor, once his side of story is revealed, it turns out to be more faithful to the original version, winning him favors, though the same couldn't be said to Jayce.

** Warwick pretended to befriend Soraka so he could later betray her and get her (physical) heart to help stabilize a potion which turned him into the wolf creature he now and will cause him to lose his human mind if he does not. This forced Soraka to step out of the grove she lived in and ''sacrifice her very immortality'' by harming others with her powers to help him in a losing fight against supposed men who killed his "wife" - clearly, she did not think plainly of Warwick to do this. The possibility to interpret "heart" in the story in a metaphorical manner does not help.

** Warwick's Blood Scent lets him see enemies that have less than 50% health in a pretty big radius. If you hear howling and see a pair of evil-looking eyes above your head, you'd best call for backup. Or run.

Ever since his rework, Blood Hunt as it's now called instead gives Warwick a more emphasized movement speed boost....on top of an eerie ambience that EVERYONE in the game can hear.

** This also applies to pre-game preparation. Chances are, scaling runes are rarely ever used unless it's either scaling HP or magic resist; every other type of rune (normally anything AD-based, AP-based or armor) is all just flat stats when used by pros, as scaling AD/AP/armor runes offer too little for the early game in order to have safe jungling clears/laning phases despite their pay off. Flat armor runes in particular even had to be nerfed at some point due to how good they were cost-wise.

** Fiora's classic splash art and models being changed in her visual update also brought the ire of players. Her new appearance makes her look like [[Colette from Ratatouille http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/WesternAnimation/Ratatouille]].
