The first 17 champions that came to League of Legends are still in the game; they have undergone many modifications since then. However, the essence remains the same.

Starting to play League of Legends is a before and after for anyone. Riot Games’ MOBA has a long history. And it makes sense because it was born in 2009. Over the years, many players have joined this video game to which we are all addicted. Surely at some point, you have heard someone say they would never play LoL, and right now, they may be playing a ranked game.

DOTA may have influenced some players, while others have listened to their friends and been encouraged to try it. On the other hand, members of the LoL player community have been attracted to the game after watching many content creators spend hours and hours playing. After watching the Arcane series, some people have even been attracted to the game.

However, many people are not familiar with the beginnings of League of Legends and its earliest champions; that is why today we talk about the first champions of the game.

The first 17 LoL champions, arguably the original champions of Riot Games’ MOBA, we first saw a little over 13 years ago. While the names remain the same, they have changed significantly since then. After all, the game developers have tried to update all the champions, their appearances, and their skill kit. Without further ado, these are the original LoL champions:

  • Alistar
  • Ashe
  • Annie
  • Jax
  • Fiddlesticks
  • Kayle
  • Morgana
  • Master Yi
  • Nunu
  • Ryze
  • Soraka
  • Sivir
  • Sion
  • Teemo
  • Twisted Fate
  • Tristana
  • Warwick

Some champions have undergone so many modifications that they are essentially new characters. At the same time, others maintain their essence and stand out for their aesthetic improvements while retaining almost all of their initial abilities. The League of Legends developers have shown that this is just the beginning; all game fans have plenty of time to continue enjoying hours of gameplay in Summoner’s Rift.

With the arrival of the Arcane series, the public posed an intriguing question – who would be the main character in League of Legends if it were a TV series or movie?
