League of Legends is a game for all types of players. For some, it’s a fun recreational activity, a great way to kill time or blow off steam. For others, it’s their profession — the source of their livelihood and the most reliable way to avoid starvation. Depending on their playstyle and personality, the in-game quotes from champions can illustrate this fact well.
“Never become a monster to defeat one.” – Karma
What It Means: Karma’s confident in her ability to do good and is frightened by the prospect of becoming something truly evil. She opts to fight the darkness with light — or, in this case, positive energy — instead of surrendering.
This quote shows that Karma is a peaceful creature, and she will do anything to protect her home, even if it means becoming a monster herself.
“I was once a golden child with hopes and dreams, just like you. I wanted to make the world better… but I got lost along the way. And now, what I have become… is here to stop you.” – Twisted Fate
What It Means: Twisted Fate used to be a champion who could make any shot and turn any situation in his favor by controlling fate itself. When he finally lost control of his power, he became a monster. This quote points out that someone fighting for a noble cause can be easily corrupted by power.
“I am the Weapon of the First Magic.” – Diana
What It Means: Diana is a woman with a unique sense of duty and loyalty. She’s determined to defend her homeland, even sacrificing her own life.
“I don’t think this is going to go the way we planned.” – Ezreal
What It Means: Ezreal has a great sense of self-belief, but he also knows when to be uncertain. He’s on a mission and will fight hard until he’s finished it. But he won’t be able to control every situation and will have some failures along the way.
“You know, I’ve got a saying: On each day, you must do something extraordinary.” – Fizz
What It Means: Fizz trusts his abilities, but he realizes that others are more powerful than him. He chooses to live life to the fullest and doesn’t let anything get in his way.
“To act a part, you must become it.” – Talon
What It Means: Talon loves staying in character. He finds every opportunity to transform into something else, a demon or avenger. His quote shows that even when not at work, Talon remains in character, depending on his mood or environment.
“There’s no guarantee in this world. That’s what makes life worth living.” – Twisted Fate
What It Means: Twisted Fate is a confident fighter who will do anything to protect himself and his friends. He knows he can’t always win but is hopeful that his efforts will at least make the struggle worthwhile.
“If I’m going down, I may as well go down protecting someone.” – Vi
What It Means: Vi loves being a part of a team and will do anything (even putting herself in danger) to help out her teammates. She’ll never give up on saving someone and is willing to fight for what she believes in.
“You don’t kill someone who is already dead.” – Yorick
What It Means: Yorick died once but could come back to life thanks to the power he received from the Maiden of the Mist. However, this time, he realizes that Death is inevitable, and someday, his ghost will be reaped by Death. He’s ready for it, though — he’s accepted his fate and only wishes for a worthy opponent on that day.
“We all make choices in life… some are just harder than others.” – Brand
What It Means: The brand doesn’t like being a monster but knows that sometimes there are no other options available. Even demons have their codes of honor. Whatever his past was — whether it was a life of a peaceful farmer, a thief, or a political leader — Brand won’t allow anyone to hurt him or any other innocent people.
“I don’t want to be just another pretty face in this world. I want to be remembered. And that’s why I’m going to become the greatest champion that has ever lived.” – Morgana
What It Means: Morgana is in it for the long haul. She knows that becoming great takes time, but she’s willing to put everything on the line until she gets there.
“When my kitten turned into a werecat, I knew it was time to go.” – Nidalee
What It Means: Nidalee is a warrior, and she’s always ready to fight for her friends. She’ll fight tooth and nail until she’s sure of victory or Death.
“We should be building bridges.” – Orianna
What It Means: Orianna is a peacemaker that wants a world full of peace and prosperity. She can talk with anyone but chooses not to use it because none of them are worth betraying. She’ll fight instead.
“We still have a lot to learn.” – Pantheon
What It Means: Pantheon knows how to fight but has a lot to learn about. He values friends and will do whatever it takes to protect them.
“Death is not the end of the journey, but merely a new path, until another is chosen.” – Karthus
What It Means: Karthus searches for the meaning of Death. He knows that Death is inevitable, but he also believes that if he can understand why people die and what starts after Death, he will be finally satisfied with his life.
“Arrogance may get you killed, but confidence will always save you.” – Lee Sin
What It Means: Lee Sin is a person that knows what must be done and is confident in his abilities. He’s been underestimated before, but he’s always ready to prove everyone wrong.
“I wish I could say that I had a plan for this all along… but I’m making this up as I go.” – Thresh
What It Means: Thresh has a broken mind and doesn’t quite understand the world around him. He’s been told that he’s evil and damned but doesn’t understand why. He may have a twisted past and be doing bad things now, but deep down inside, he wants someone to show him the right way to live.
“Every feint has a purpose. Every breath is a chance to change the world.” – Twisted Fate
What It Means: Twisted Fate knows that sometimes you must lie or trick others into achieving your goals. He knows when a lie is necessary and when the truth will work better for him.
“There’s always next time.” – Warwick
What It Means: Warwick is a werewolf that knows how to fight and survive in the world. He has been known to show mercy and even save his enemies’ lives, but he will never forget his past. He will fight for survival until he is sure of his purpose.
“First comes love, then comes marriage. Then come the kids. And then… Death.” – Warwick
What It Means: Warwick’s past is filled with tragedy and sadness, so it’s no surprise that he’s not one for romantic relationships or marriage. He’ll happily fight for friends and family but has no plans of finding love or a life partner (especially not another werewolf).
