General

  • Jhin was partially inspired by Simo Häyhä.
  • Jhin is the first champion to feature a takedown animation on his Classic skin, via Beauty in Death Beauty in Death. It should be noted however that the passive effect is not solely for cosmetic purposes.
    • Despite being the only one seen in-game, the rose is just one of the many things he sees when killing someone.[1]
  • The violin for Jhin's theme (followed by a chorus) can be heard while the player is channeling Curtain Call Curtain Call.
    • The people in Spectator Mode can also hear it, though allies and enemies cannot.
  • Occasionally when playing as Jhin, at the start of the game (between your team spawning at the fountain and then minions doing so at nexus) you can hear a version of the map's theme that fits the style of Jhin's own.
    • He will always hum and laugh to it.
      • It reverts to the regular music at about 45 seconds.
  • Jhin has some degree of innate magic, as he is able to put magic into his bullets. The gun itself, Whisper, is already magical due to being hextech.
    • It has been confirmed by a rioter that his bullets shapes his victims flesh into his choosing or make it move as well as other effects.
      • Examples would be the four champions(Sona, Garen, Vi, and Zed) chosen to be in his teasers.
  • If Jhin is killed with MordekaiserSquare Mordekaiser's Children of the Grave Children of the Grave and enter ghost form he will never run out of bullets. 

Development

  • Jhin was the first champion released in 2016 as well as being the product of the need for a brand new Marksman.
    • His first designer was Jordan 'Wrekz' Anton but his initial concepts ended up becoming the stepping stones for Kindred Kindred.
      • Jhin was in production for seven months (the usual timeframe is one year)
  • The words Jhin and Deadeyed were first datamined from the game's website.
    • The Virtuoso's name (albeit misspelled) was even spoken by a Rioter before his reveal.[2][3]
  • His production name and title were 'Jin, the Artisan Killer'.
    • The H was added after being deemed prone to confusion with Jinx Jinx, another of August 'jinxylord' Browning's champions.[4]
    • In universe, his name means "Golden Excellence", as Jhin derives from Mandarin jīn 金 "gold"[5].
  • At one point Whisper Whisper's fourth shot was able to one-shot a Zed Zed at full health.
  • Dancing Grenade Dancing Grenade used to be able to be recast from an enemy's location but the burden of knowledge was deemed too high.
    • It also used to bounce an unlimited number of times. [6]
  • Deadly Flourish Deadly Flourish used to reveal marked champions for a few seconds even through fog of war.
    • Its tooltip implies Jhin uses Whisper Whisper's barrel as a walking cane, which he actually does when not 'performing'.
  • Due to miscommunication during production Jhin differs between artwork and in-game.

Lore

  • Jhin shows traits consistent with obsessive-compulsive disorder focused on the number four.
    • His login theme is built around 4-note motifs / written with a 4/4 time signature (each bar is separated into 4 distinct beats)
    • His name and title themselves have four letters and four syllables respectively.
    • IIII is the archaic and uncommon alternative writing, using tally marks, for the Roman four IV, which uses subtractive notation.
      • The tally marks engraved on Whisper Whisper might be referencing this notation.
    • When he 'performs' in any given nation he makes four people 'beautiful and perfect'.
    • In Chinese and Sino-Xenic pronunciations, 四 "four" sounds like 死 "death" (albeit with different tones, except in toneless Japanese & Korean), leading to avoidance, though unhistorical. Examples:
      • Mandarin Chinese: 四 vs. 死;
      • Vietnamese: tứ 四 vs. tử 死;
      • Japanese: shi 四 & 死;
      • Korean: sa 四 & 死.
    • He is four years older than Zed Zed.[7]
    • Whisper Whisper can hold up to four bullets/fire up to four times before Jhin having to reload, with the fourth shot being the deadliest.
    • Dancing Grenade Dancing Grenade can bounce up to four times.
    • Deadly Flourish Deadly Flourish marks a target for four seconds.
    • Captive Audience Captive Audience reveals units for four seconds.
    • Curtain Call Curtain Call can fire up to four shots, with the fourth being the deadliest.
    • During his joke Jhin drops Whisper Whisper and it fires all four bullets.
  • 'Mind of the Virtuoso' depicts how 'artistic' Jhin sees his 'performances'.
  • Before the Kashuri armories granted him Whisper Whisper Jhin used to 'perform' with blades powered by chi techniques passed down from his father.
  • Underneath the mask Jhin has a fully functional face.
    • And without his usual outfit he doesn't stand out in a crowd.
      • His favorite food is dumplings.[11]
  • As revealed in a "Did you Know" message, Khada Jhin is just a stage name, and Jhin's real name remains unknown.

Relations

  • Jhin has some resentment towards both Shen Shen and his father Kusho for imprisoning him.
    • Since Kusho was killed by Zed Zed (whom he also resents for denying him a performance) Jhin will have to make do with killing the Eye of Twilight.
      • He is forcing them to work together so he might kill them both where they caught him years before.
  • Jhin has some interest in killing SonaSquare Sona for being a very famous Ionian artist who is taking the spotlight away from his 'performances'.
    • He also has a passing interest in killing Master Yi Master Yi since the Wuju school dwarfed the success of Jhin's father's martial arts one.[12]
