* Urf Day. Following the huge success of Warwick's Urf the Manatee skin, Riot donated the proceeds they had received during April Fools' to an organization devoted to the preservation of manatees.
* In the wake of the tragic 2011 earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan, Riot put Akali and her [[NaughtyNurseOutfit Nurse skin]] on sale and donated all proceeds from the sale of both to the American Red Cross to aid with the relief efforts. At the end of the event [[http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=7586489#post7586489 over 50,000 summoners had contributed and Riot made a donation of over $160,000!]]
* The story of Joe, a Ewing's Sarcoma patient who was invited to tour Riot through the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Riot then put Joe's favorite skin, Jaximus, on sale, with all proceeds going to Make-a-Wish. When Joe passed away, Jaximus got a unique new line. "Here's to you, kid!"
* Riot artist [=IronStylus=] was tasked with designing a female tank champion. He needed a strong woman to base her on... so he asked his wife to be the model. He [[http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=18556007#18556007 later admitted]] Leona's default art is more or less an unaltered portrait of his wife, just with her hair and eyes colored orange.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjxFWARqhus Reginald: Fear of Failure]] features Team Solomid's captain Andy "Reginald" Dinh and his tale of going from a troubled schoolkid to the leader of one of America's biggest teams. It's really inspiring and almost goes into TearJerker in a few parts.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dvYxkyQFZU Trials of the Poro]], a short movie about one of the game's mascot {{Ridiculously Cute Critter}}s getting caught up in a huge battle somewhere in Freljord while searching for Poro Snax. The heartwarming comes in when the terrified little poro is saved from an enormous RainOfArrows by a huge, cheerful, [[BaldOfAwesome bald]] warrior with a giant shield and a BadassMustache (actually the first reveal of upcoming champion Braum) who, after saving him, arranges his fur into a little mustache of his own.
-->'''Braum:''' Next time, you get ''my'' back, eh?
* Siv HD, who managed to raise [[http://kotaku.com/league-of-legends-player-raises-106-000-for-charity-in-1277236597 over $100,000 for charity]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVDN_G3u3dU in a single day.]]

* Who says that even fandom can't make a heartwarming story, even if it's probably non-canon? Take a look at [[http://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/ybjqx/lol_manga_she_who_is_like_a_sun_to_me/ She Who Is Like A Sun To Me]], which takes Pantheon's baker joke and Leona's protective instinct into a story of sweet friendship that may shed a lot more humanity on the war-worshipping Rakkor warrior, and launch the [[FanPreferredCouple Pantheon/Leona]] ship even further. [[note]]The summary: Pantheon used to be a ostracized Rakkor kid because of his baking hobby, with everyone else bullying him for that, and only Leona staying as his friend, driving away the bullies and enjoying his cakes. Even as he [[TookALevelInBadass became the paragon of Rakkor and their way of warrior]], and Leona became a member of the Solari, Pantheon will always see her in high regard.[[/note]]
