General

  • Gnar, Elise OriginalSquare Elise, Jayce OriginalSquare Jayce, Kayle OriginalSquare Kayle and Nidalee OriginalSquare Nidalee are the only champions to be both Ranged role ranged and Melee role melee.
  • Gnar's concept is built on monstrous transformations in fiction coupled with the Fish Out of Water trope.

Development

Lore

  • Gnar is a prehistoric yordle, at the very least older than 10000 years, dating back to a time when there were no massive civilizations on land.
    • He was able to survive for millennia due to hibernation and being encased in True Ice.
    • Gnar is physically and mentally around 4 years old.
  • He is unaware that he transforms but that may change when he grows older.
    • He retains his personality as Mega Gnar.
  • The tribal paintings in 'Discovering the Link' depict Gnar and his family living in peace until a one-eyed entity with two horns/tentacles (speculated to be a Frozen Watcher or one of Vel'Koz OriginalSquare Vel'Koz's Voidborn species) attacked them. It knocks Gnar's family away, triggering his Rage Gene Rage Gene therefore turning Mega, and promptly fighting the entity to unknown success.
    • Apparently, defeated Anivia OriginalSquare Anivia encases Gnar for centuries in True Ice to preserve him and ultimately awakens him again to fight the Frozen Watchers on the brink of their return.[4]
      • Immediately after his escape, he's rampaging through the woods as Mega Gnar, with Rengar OriginalSquare Rengar hunting him down to take him as a prize.
  • Gnar learned to use a boomerang from and fashioned his after his father's.
    • The boomerang is hidden in Mega Gnar's fur when he transforms.[5]
  • Gnar is the only Yordle in modern times to have a tail due to his antiquity.
