A unit card with keyword Keyword Nightfall.png Nightfall.

Keyword Nightfall.png Nightfall is a keyword in Legends of Runeterra icon.png Legends of Runeterra.

EditWhen you have already Keyword Play.svg played one or more cards in a round, it is night.

Unit card.png Unit: Nightfall effects happen Keyword Trigger.svg when the unit with it is Keyword Play.svg played, if it's night.



Spell card.svg Spell: Nightfall effects happen when the spell casts, if it was night when they were played.
Spells that only have a Nightfall effect can only be played and cast if Nightfall would trigger.

Notes

  • Day and Night is not a binary state of the game. It is still possible to trigger Nightfall when LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png5Rahvun, Daylight's Spear is active.
  • Nightfall, in Targon region.svg Targon, is thematically associated with the divine power of the 03MT004-full.png Lunari faith, the shift of power towards them, the moon, subtlety, assault under the cover of night, and subterfuge.
  • In the Shadow Isles region.svg Shadow Isles, the keyword is largely associated with LoR Champion Indicator.png4Nocturne's use of shadow magic, and the associated dread and nightmarish creations.
    • Because of the large link to dread and fear, the cards that use the keyword in the Isles have a large link to Keyword Fearsome.svg Fearsome, and attacking with large swarms. This thematic is also, secondarily, linked to Keyword Drain.svg draining small amounts of life.

Development

"When we first tested, I had people come up to me afterwards to say how awesome/flashy Keyword Daybreak.png day was, but they were nervous about the difficulty of using Keyword Nightfall.png night, while a second group approached me to say how clever night felt, but day was too obvious. This convinced me of both mechanics."

  • Riot Eyebrow Poro has spoke about how Nightfall cards' design is intentionally "clever" and "difficult", in direct thematic contrast to Keyword Daybreak.png Daybreak.

Trivia

  • Nightfall is mostly present on Keyword Burst.svg Burst Spell card.svg spells and Unit card.png units. LoR Spell Non-Slow Indicator.png2Unspeakable Horror is the only exception as of LoR Set 3 icon.png Set 3.
    • In addition, cards that are designed to be synergistic with Nightfall, particularly in Targon region.svg Targon, tend to be Keyword Burst.svg Burst, such as LoR Spell Non-Slow Indicator.png1Duskpetal Dust. This allows for it to become night and for a Nightfall card to be activated in the same turn.
