Challenger Diagram

Unit card.png Units with Challenger can force any enemy unit on the board to commit a Keyword Block.png block against it when declaring an Keyword Attack.svg attack. When choosing units to declare Keyword Block.png blocks with, the enemy won't be able to change what unit the challenged unit is blocking.

Any enemy unit on the board can be forced to block, including ones that wouldn't be able to block it normally, for example: Keyword Can't Block.svg Can't Block units, non-Keyword Elusive.svg Elusive units to Elusive units, Keyword Stun.png Stunned units, and low-power units to Keyword Fearsome.svg Fearsome units.

Notes

  • This keyword has a wide range of thematic associations and gameplay purposes, but it by far has its largest presence in Demacia region.svg Demacia, and then Noxus region.svg Noxus.
    • In a general sense, Challenger units tend to, thematically, be those that can in some way pick their fights, assassinate others, or occasionally it can represent units that in some way hinder, stun, or trap, or those that are reckless.
    • Demacia region.svg Demacia
      • Demacia has a number of ways to grant Challenger, as well as having a number of durable and healthy units with square stats with the keyword, and cheap, 1 LoR Health.png Health and low LoR Power.png Power units with it. Notably, the region has LoR Champion Indicator.png3Fiora, who uses the keyword to help her Keyword Level Up.png Level Up condition, and then win the game through alternative means. Challenger also generally is used to fit the region's general theme of winning games and removing enemy units through the strength of your allies alone.
      • In Demacia, the keyword is largely thematically associated with the Laurent House Crest icon.png Laurent House duelists, as well as duels, duelists, and taking up fights in general, winged animals and beasts that assault, claw, and maul, and the reach, and confrontationalism of their Dragons, which sets them apart from Targon region.svg Targon's.
    • Noxus region.svg Noxus
      • The presence of this keyword in Noxus is generally in the form of high Power, low Health units, which can represent recklessness, and generally fitting this region's theme of having large damage and low defensive abilities, and encourages these units being used to kill others, rather than being used defensively, and as such these units tend to be Reckoners, hunters, or clingy and crawling creatures (which tend to have a low Power, but high ability to swarm).
    • Piltover & Zaun region.svg Piltover & Zaun
      • The keyword's precense in Piltover & Zaun is largely in the form of cheap, easy to bring to the board, 'disposable' units that exist to 'lock up' enemy units, to stop them from blocking other allies.
      • Thematically, in the region, the keyword is more often than not associated with small, fragile or volatile devices that distract, stun, or trap.
    • Runeterra region.png Other regions
      • Ionia region.svg Ionia's usage of the keyword is built around LoR Champion Indicator.png5Lee Sin and his card set, and so works with their general theme of spellcasting to support their units.
      • Freljord region.svg Freljord's usage of the keyword is mostly associated with species of Wolf, which take advantage of weak or Keyword Frostbite.svg Frostbitten units, and have lower Power than Health. There is also a small presence of the keyword in combination with Keyword Regeneration.svg Regeneration and high Health totals, for powerful units that can challenge enemies with little penalty; LoR Champion Indicator.png4Braum is notable for his usage of this in combination with having 0 Power, to fit him protecting his allies from large and assaults while being durable himself.
