The Imperial synergy is based around champions related to Noxus Noxus. The synergy focuses on bolstering offensive stats.



  • Dragons Dragons are a natural counter to Imperials with their high defensive stats and ability to inflict Grievous Wounds icon.png Grievous Wounds.
  • Katarina Katarina and Swain Swain deal heavy magic damage, a Dragon's Claw Dragon's Claw or Hush Hush can let an ally handle their special abilities.
  • Draven Draven deals a ton of physical damage. This can be mitigated in a few ways:
    • Blitzcrank Blitzcrank, and Gnar Gnar can move him and interrupt his special ability.
    • Thornmail Thornmail on tanks can make Draven regret ever hitting them, good champions for this are any Guardian Guardian, Gnar Gnar, Shyvana Shyvana, and most other tanky frontline champions.
  • Darius Darius, as the tank of the Imperials, mostly benefits from the heal he gets, because of that, Grievous Wounds icon.png Grievous Wounds shuts him down.


  • Demacia Demacia and Noxus Noxus are often considered polar opposites. This is notably represented in their respective traits, with Noble Noble being defensive, and Imperial being offensive.
