** 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]].

** Kog'Maw's [[PreciousPuppy "Pug'Maw"]] skin treads this line, [[BrokenBase resulting it in being one of the most contentious skins.]] While people were generally for the idea, many players [[http://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/2017/05/dev-state-of-skins/ and even developers]] found that applying a pug-like face onto Kog'Maw's bizarre, alien silhouette was unnerving, [[https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-rcYtCYrZNW8/WMOhbkLTZZI/AAAAAAAAfzk/CWPIUnY3iRE-ZOLOwjtPDN3hj2twWWIoQCEw/s1600/kog%2B3compare.jpg and the textures had to be significantly altered on the PBE a few times]] for being both aesthetically out-of-place and just feeling too realistic to be cute.

* UncannyValley: Deliberately invoked with [[RobotGirl Orianna]], but has unintentionally occurred in a few splash arts, most infamously the original [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/eVtmlNImLgY/hqdefault.jpg Lollipoppy splash art]] until it was updated with her rework and subsequent splash art remakes.

* UnwantedAssistance: Several Champions in the game possess abilities that, when used correctly, are devastating and clinchers, but when used poorly, can save an enemy from death or make their efforts at killing your allies easier. This has become a bit of a meme in the community, usually to the tune of "I'm _________! I'm '''helping'''!" To name a few;
** Alistar's Headbutt
** Anivia's Crystallize
** Aurelion Sol's Voice of Light
** Bard's Tempered Fate
** Blitzcrank's Rocket Grab
** Gragas' Explosive Cask
** Janna's Monsoon
** Jarvan IV's Cataclysm
** Kindred's Lamb's Respite
** Lee Sin's Dragon's Rage
** Reworked Poppy's Keeper's Verdict
** Singed's Fling
** Tahm Kench's Devour
** Tristana's Buster Shot
** Urgot's Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser
** Volibear's Rolling Thunder
** For the record, sending an enemy carry flying toward your team so that they can dispatch him/her is ''good''. Doing the same for an enemy initiator, tank, or anyone who *wants* to get closer is ''bad''.

** Janna's ultimate has gained some notoriety for just how easy it is to screw one's team over inadvertently by repositioning enemies to where you really, really don't want them to be.

* HellIsThatNoise:
** The BLIP! of a turret that just targeted you -- if you can move freely it means GET THE HELL OUTTA THERE NOW, if you're stunned it means YouAreAlreadyDead.
** The shriek Ghost Bride Morgana lets out as part of her recall animation is blood-curdling.
** The sound of Nocturne and Fiddlestick's ultimate abilities, ''Paranoia'' and ''Crowstorm''. The sound clearly conveys ''someone'' is about to have their day ruined. It also helps that both of them are ParanoiaFuel Champions post-6.
** Sion's [[RuleOfThree ultimate post-rework]] also has a double dose of this. Upon casting his ultimate ''Unstoppable Onslaught'' a loud metallic clang is heard by all players to signify he's charging somewhere. The second part? Well he has ten different audio files that are specifically for his ultimate. Which can, for example, lead to enemies hearing....
--> '''Sion''': [[http://images.wikia.com/leagueoflegends/images/3/3a/Sion.R9.ogg *Sion bellowing*]] or ''[[http://images.wikia.com/leagueoflegends/images/7/7f/Sion.R4.ogg "Dieeeeee!"]]''
** This is even worse for the enemy team. The sound is only heard by the enemy team ''when Sion is visible to them''.
** And now we have the addition of Rek'Sai. Her ultimate depends on the tunnels she can spawn across the map, immediately dashing to it so she can maul the living crap out of whatever is on the other end. Luckily these tunnels can be found and quickly destroyed, limiting her movements. And then you hear a blood-curdling "SKREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!" meaning YOU MISSED ONE.
** More benignly, an allied Illaoi's recall quotes are broadcast across the entire map, leading to brief moments of confusion every time she goes back as people try to figure out who's talking.



** Sion post-rework has a notification sound whenever he uses his ultimate, Unstoppable Onslaught, that both teams can hear. It is a [[HellIsThatNoise loud, deep metallic bang]]. ''HOWEVER'', the enemy team will ''only'' hear it when they can see him using his ultimate. In short: They likely won't be aware of the unstoppable [[TheJuggernaut juggernaut]] barreling towards them until it's far, far too late.

** This is in fact one of the main criticisms of ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'' players against LOL: DOTA's metagame is very fluid, flexible and changing, whereas LOL's metagame is so rigid and constant it is possible to tell a DOTA native from a LOL immigrant because the former will always do lots of different things depending on what the situation asks for, whereas the latter always farm on early game, always push on mid-game and always fight on late game.

** Some players also hold the theory that simple champions are sometimes more difficult than complex champions, because simple champions force you to face all kinds of situations with nothing but a few basic moves.

** A milder example is one of Corki's passives, [[MacrossMissileMassacre "The]] [[BigBulkyBomb Package."]] This might only be a little snicker-inducing on its own [[DoubleEntendre if you have a filthy mind,]] but it's led to a few times during professional games where shoutcasters accidentally blurt out ''[[InnocentInnuendo really]]'' [[InnocentInnuendo suggestive]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOXhKVZn0i4 things while providing a live play-by-play.]]

*** Unfortunately, following the post-lore retcon, this is actually much more of a canonical interpretation, since Stanwick apparently no longer exists, Viktor's motivations are clearly on his own volition and more heinous (he actively wants to take away free will, mind you), and Jayce is being portrayed as an unlikable [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark-esque]] {{Jerkass}} who ends up defeating Viktor and is deemed a hero for it.
