** After the game decided to drop its colorful, ExcusePlot nature of its lore and began retwriting it to be more complex, as well as DarkerAndEdgier, [[TheArtifact some of the in-game depictions of older, un-updated champions have not aged very well]]. Hearing certain champions like Miss Fortune, Orianna, or Annie, [[CerebusSyndrome whose personalities and backstories have since been fundamentally redone]] can come off as unintentionally jarring.

* {{Narm}}: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Vy2zT47yLk Season 3 Championship series trailer.]] While the music is cool, the video is just a bunch of pro gamers running around an empty building with an overuse of AdrenalineTime that would make Creator/ZackSnyder blush.

Added DiffLines:

** Yasuo, for similar reasons. For all his talk about being determined to carry on until he finds his elder's killer, his voiced lines out of combat have no energy; the guy sounds physically and emotionally exhausted.

* EvilIsSexy: Evelynn, Katarina, and Morgana are prime female examples, with Jhin currently being the only male example. Though it's [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation debatable]] if Morgana's [[AmbiguouslyEvil actually evil]] however, ditto with Katarina due to Noxus' DarkIsNotEvil status.

Added DiffLines:

** Kayn, especially in either of his final forms. ''Shadow Step'' allows him to travel through walls and fire off his other abilities while inside. Once he's landed a hit on you, ''Umbral Trespass'' blinks him inside your champion and makes him almost impossible to escape from. If you see a glowing black spot on a nearby wall, chances are he's coming to ruin your day.

** No, Wukong is not based off of [[Franchise/DragonBall Goku]]. He and Goku are ''both'' based on [[{{Literature/JourneyToTheWest}} someone else]].

* FriendlyFandoms: Conversely to FandomRivalry above, fans of VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} have a much friendlier relationship with those of League, and the overlap between the two games has increased significantly since its official release. Part of this is due to VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} being somewhat inspired by League, maintaining its vibrant character diversity and lore, and mechanically similar play (an easily accessible [[MultiplayerOnlineBattleArena MOBA]] with FirstPersonShooter sensibilities), but a faster pace and a ''considerably'' less toxic environment. It's become a somewhat common sight on Reddit in whenever Riot sets off an InternetBackdraft, players will announce themselves jumping ship specifically for VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}.

** [[http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/player/NA/Jaredan Jaredan]], mainly due to the fact that he's the ''only'' person from Narrative who actually talks to the players. Plus, he promised lore updates, and better lore, and by god [[http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/site/bilgewater/ did they deliever]].

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Following the massive lore reworks, the game's story has somehow managed to get darker with every new bit of information added. The League itself, the one organization effectively keeping peace in Valoran, has been done away with; Many formerly heroic champions have been reworked into either [[{{Jerkass}} Jerkasses]], [[KnightTemplar Knight Templars]], or both; Every new villainous champion seems to be trying to be more [[CompleteMonster monstrous]] than the last; Most character-centric stories tend to involve random people dying horribly all over the place; And due to the nature of the game, it's unlikely that anything will get better for anyone, which can make it hard to care about what's going on in the game's story.

** Kayn's design hugely revolves around invoking this; he's such a blatant stereotype of badass, but laughably edgy {{Bishonen}} [[AntiHero anti-heroes]] straight out of [[{{Animesque}} shounen anime]] that he shoots the moon and goes back to being badass. His [[MechanicallyUnusualFighter interesting gameplay mechanics]] and [[Friendly Enemy banter with]] [[AxCrazy Rhaast]] also definitely help.

** NarmCharm: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX_IQkeXq9g Road to the Cup]] video made to promote the Championship itself did a much better job of making pro-gamers look badass both by being animated and by going ''completely'' over-the-top. Hilarious, but still awesome.
