Best Halloween Skins in League of Legends
The only remnant of the old, gritty, League of Legends we have now, is found in the Halloween skin line. We'll take it though.
The Halloween season is not celebrated in the in-game League of Legends lore as it is the case in our world. On the other hand, it does have an event as a reference, and many Halloween skins to boot. The event is the Harrowing, an event where the Shadow Isles attack Bilgewater and infect anything in its way. Here are the best of those dressing up as monsters, and those who’ve turned into monsters themselves.
We are starting off with one of the best Halloween skins League of Legends has to offer, in the form of a Brand skin. Or, at least, one of the most iconic ones, after all, there is no Halloween without a zombie. Zombie Brand is of the Zombies vs Slayers skin theme of League of Legends Halloween skins, along with Zombie Nunu&Willump and Zombie Slayer Pantheon.
The Zombie Brand skin was released on October 25, 2012, as a Legendary Skin worth 1820 RP. Nowadays, this skin is no longer available for purchase, unless the Legacy Vault opens, due to its Legacy status.
The champion itself received new skin features, such as new green particles, a new voiceover, as well as new animations, with the Zombie Brand skin. As far as Legendary skins go, Zombie Brand offers quality as well as a theme that fits.
Little Devil Teemo
Speaking of skins that fit the theme of their champion, we have the Little Devil Teemo skin. As a champion whose sole existence will cause an aneurysm to an average League of Legends player, Little Devil Teemo is not spooky, he is terrifying, as all Teemo games are, to be honest.
Teemo received his Little Devil Teemo skin on October 19, 2016, as an Epic skin, worth 1350 RP. It offers new VFX, new sounds, and some new animations.
The Little Devil Teemo skin is part of the League of Legends Halloween skin line, as well as of the Demonic skin line. According to the lore, he is the ultimate villain that will be summoned by Bewitching Tristana and Bewitching Morgana to destroy the world.
Bewitching Morgana Prestige Edition
Speaking of a Bewitching skin, we have Bewitching Morgana’s prestige edition skin, another skin that can not be bought in the game Client. The original Bewitching Morgana skin portrays Morgana as a witch, rather than a sorceress with divine power. As such, the Bewitching Morgana skin is more in line with dark than high fantasy.
Bewitching Morgana Prestige Edition was released on November 7, 2021, and is Morgana’s newest skin. This skin can only be bought using Prestige points and has no RP price.
As Riot Games created the skin’s design with a completely different theme in mind, compared to the usual high fantasy skins, Bewitching Morgana’s new animations, and particle spell effects are on a different level. unlike other Halloween-themed skins, the Bewitching Morgana Prestige Edition skin is not one of the spooky skins released by Riot Games. Instead, it is one of a benevolent witch in a dark game world.
Bewitching Miss Fortune
Riot Games are just looking for excuses to put Miss Fortune into a skimpy outfit. And with this Halloween skin, they’ve managed to do just that. With what the result is, we can’t be outraged too much. Besides, skimpy skins and spooky skins sound similar enough.
Bewitching Miss Fortune was brought into the League of Legends universe on October 24, the same day as Witch’s Brew Blitzcrank, 2019, and, though it is an Epic skin, it is one of the rare skins where we prefer the default rather than the prestige version.
Bewitching Miss Fortune is also tied to another one of the Halloween skins, namely Witch's Brew Blitzcrank skins. The Witch’s Brew Blitzcrank skin, in this case, is the cauldron Miss Fortune’s Bewitching skin herself uses. Why the skin is called Witch's Brew Blitzcrank, and not cauldron, we cannot say.
One of the champions that definitely don’t celebrate Halloween, the way Trick-Or-Treat Ekko does, is Headless Hecarim. This is one of the best Halloween-themed skins in the game, purely due to the mythology surrounding the actual legend.
Headless Hecarim is one of the Harrowing skins in League of Legends, and one where Riot Games actually make a monster champion even more monstrous. It was released on October 25, 2012, as a normal skin, but it has become a Legacy skin since.
Headless Hecarim is one of the best Halloween-themed skins as he truly embodies the spirit of both myths and pop culture. After all, he is a scary monster from the myths, with a pumpkin-carved jack o’lantern as a head.
Where Miss Fortune is a trickster and Morgana a spell caster, Bewitching Janna and Bewitching Elise are opposites as well. Bewitching Janna enjoys the witching hour for its existence, while Bewitching Elise abuses it to her own advantage, as Elise usually does.
Because of that, we find her to be among the best Halloween skins, of the Bewitching skin line. It has nothing to do with her ability to charm her victims, not at all.
Bewitching Elise was released by Riot Games on October 22, 2020. As a newer member of the Halloween skins, Bewitching Elise offers new animations, particle spell effects, and sounds to the base champion model.
At the end of the day, though, it is the Count Kassadin skin that has it all. The aura of danger he gives off, the looks, as well as the color scheme all, come together to make this into the best of the best Harrowing skins in the game. Unlike Trick-Or-Treat Ekko, for example, who only has his looks to get him ahead.
Riot Games really hit the nail on the head with this one, that is for sure. Count Kassadin was released by Riot Games on October 24, 2019, as an Epic skin.
And, though the Nosferatu Vladimir is a scarier and more true to myth skin, Count Kassadin still takes first place as the best Harrowing skin of the vampire variety.
And with that, we have the best way Riot Games have of monopolizing Halloween. Every spooky season, the sale of almost every Harrowing skin gets boosted, and new ones join the mix.
Of course, there are more League of Legends skins than anyone really needs. But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy them all.
