I've removed Bizarre Alien Biology with the Nasus and Renekton examples. They're based on Anubis and Sobek of Egyptian mythology, not aliens. The same applies to some other characters in Lo L.

What would be the appropriate trope to list their odd parentage then?

To be clear, their official lore makes it very clear that they are aliens: http://gameinfo.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/game-info/champions/nasus/#champion-lore http://gameinfo.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/game-info/champions/renekton/#champion-lore

They may be based off Anubis and Sobek, but canonically they're aliens.

  • Massive Race Selection: Most champions are human with Yordles as the most common after them. The rest are a wide assortment of monsters and humanoids that range from animal-like humanoids to Eldritch Abominations, with a few "classic" creatures like trolls and minotaurs thrown in.

This trope was redefined and renamed. A game now needs to specifically have 6 or more separate species available in character/team creation to count as an example. I don't know the game, so I moved the example here until it can be verified for the new definition.

  • Humans
  • Yordles
  • Darkins
  • Trolls
  • Iceborn
  • Undead

All of the above have at least one champion, and each is an entirely separate race, even leaving out one-off characters like Evelynn of unknown race.
