Pentakill is also a virtual band in real-life comprised of League of Legends champions which are performed by numerous musicians. Each member of the band has a skin corresponding to their Pentakill alter-ego, which is styled after modern heavy metal music.[1]


In a realm consecrated to dark and uncaring gods, where mortals clash in ceaseless, bloody sagas of metal, one band rose above all others: Pentakill, chosen of the Noisome Host. Now revered in temples and arenas across the land, their supremacy has become absolute-though a time of change is approaching, and the cycle may soon begin anew...
The Band

In a world where heavy metal reigns supereme, PENTAKILL are the undisputed masters of melting the face right off your head. Six members, two penta-platinum albums, and the chrome-fisted fury the gods themselves. It's time to rock!
  • Pentakill Karthus Pentakill Karthus
    Lead singer of heavy-metal sensation PENTAKILL, Karthus sings in the voice of a fallen angel made of freshly polished chrome and dynamite that eats other dynamite. His vocals explode the sun in the sky, igniting the flame of metal within the hearts of all who hear.
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Karthus Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Karthus
      All hail, Karthus, the Voice of Doom, and Chosen of Perpetuum! His songs are bleak murder ballads, a bitter reminder that all things must die. Though, perhaps, not him?
  • Pentakill Kayle Pentakill Kayle
    When PENTAKILL needed a female vocalist, the heavens parted and a literal angel of rock fell to earth, taking up her sword-mic for the eternal glory of heavy metal.
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Kayle Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Kayle
      All hail, Kayle, the Bringer of Woe! With the strength of a self-righteous angel, she claims justice and judgment soar on her wings of wrath. Surely, if any can rally the warrior host of metal, it will be her.
  • Pentakill Mordekaiser Pentakill Mordekaiser
    PENTAKILL's gigantic lead guitarist—and a titan of the old world—Mordekaiser rocks with the fury of an epoch lost to time. Bigger than a two-story house, his guitar overflows with heavy metal licks rebuking the gods themselves.
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Mordekaiser Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Mordekaiser
      All hail, Mordekaiser, the Master of Metal, and Chosen of Cacophoni! The brazen giant boasts of his legendary skill with the axe, for none who face its edge live to tell of it…
  • Pentakill Olaf Pentakill Olaf
    Good drummers have rhythm, huge body counts, and are accursed vikings with an insatiable desire to kill. PENTAKILL's Olaf is a very, very good drummer.
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Olaf Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Olaf
      All hail, Olaf, the Blastbeat Barbarian, and Chosen of Stentorus! As wild as a tempest, as brutal as an earthquake, he laughs in the faces of his enemies, his pounding drumbeats shaking the very foundations of the world.
  • Pentakill Sona Pentakill Sona
    Never tell Sona of PENTAKILL that keyboards aren't metal. Her instrument is filled with living barbed wire and a sonic scream loud enough to bring other, lesser musical genres crashing to their knees.
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Sona Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Sona
      All hail, Sona, the Silent Virtuoso! An artist's soul can change the world, and with the harmonious power of creation at her fingertips, she will prove that what is made can yet be unmade.
  • Pentakill Yorick Pentakill Yorick
    Yorick was resurrected with the undying soul of heavy metal inside him for the singular purpose of joining PENTAKILL and melting faces with his bass guitar. He can also summon an army of roadie ghouls, a handy trick for any seasoned stage performer.
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Yorick Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Yorick
      All hail, Yorick, the Four-String Fanatic! He bestrides the realms of the living and the dead, and knows the fate that comes to all mortal things. It pays to beware the honorable man...

Dissonance

  • Dissonance of Pentakill Viego Dissonance of Pentakill Viego
    Only the broken-hearted can know the true sound of grief, that yearning for perfection that goes unheard by all others. Viego exists in a world of ashes and shadow, when it ought to be filled with light, and now looks beyond these grey horizons for new sounds and visions to make it so...

"My rig doesn't just hit eleven. It ******* melts eleven." - Pentakill Mordekaiser Pentakill Mordekaiser
When a mountain fell on Mordekaiser, he took it as a sign from the Gods of Metal that his demonically-ordained task to bring metal to the masses was done, that he had achieved full metal. He knew he would one day be reborn, but as time passed, his wait became a slumber. The crushing mountain was an evil peak of black metal and cursed rock. Upon its highest summit, the gleaming, obsidian haft of a snarling axe protruded from the rock. Legends grew around this cursed place, legends that foretold whosoever drew the axe from the mountain would be the true herald of a new age of metal.

"Come what ever may, I'll be the death of you." - Pentakill Karthus Pentakill Karthus
Karthus embarked on a solo career in Bilgewater, earning a crust as a hooded reciter of funeral dirges. This had an unexpected health benefit to natives of Bilgewater, as people started looking after themselves rather than have to put their families through such an ordeal. Karthus made a career touring squalid dive bars to sing at the drunken wakes of murdered pirates instead - what with grim dirges being a vast improvement on sea-shanties.

"More bass. Turn the bass up. Turn the ******* bass up. More. More." - Pentakill Yorick Pentakill Yorick
Thinking he'd try something new, Yorick chose to vacation in the sun-bleached wastes of Shurima. Sunlight was something new to him, something he normally avoided for fear of people recoiling from a face not even a mother could love. His unique bass was the perfect tool to crush the soft rock of Shurima, but often had the side effect of liquefying the sand to a degree where many of the workers excavating distant tombs were buried alive. To many of these unfortunate souls, this was preferable to enduring another moment in the presence of a man who could literally bore rock.

"...!" - Pentakill Sona Pentakill Sona
Sona was consumed with the desire to craft soaring symphonic rock operas and tour the grandest temples of the world (and elsewhere) but no acoustics were powerful enough to satisfy her need for the most cosmically resonant sounds. Sona took ship with the doomed crew of the Serpent's Feast to a series of volcanic islands, and began to sculpt the island with sonic brutality. There she unleashed the music of creation. So powerful were her notes, they travelled between worlds and sank entire continents (indeed, a planned gig in Atlantis had to be cancelled).

"Get me a new china, toms, snare, double pedal, and cowbell. Yeah, basically a new set. Old one broke. Caught fire. Yeah I set it on fire." - Pentakill Olaf Pentakill Olaf
After surviving what he believed was to be his final performance, Olaf sought to drink himself to death with the deadliest booze of Runeterra. He ended up in the depths of Zaun, drinking potent sump cocktails, bragging of glory days and daring chem-jacked thugs to take them on. Olaf soon found himself embroiled in underground golem fight-clubs. Up against chem-powered giants, Olaf found his natural talent for pounding drums was also good for pounding mechanical automatons to pieces.

"Does molten lava, poured by The Brazen Gods of Metal, flow through your veins? Only then are you worthy of my time."- Pentakill Kayle Pentakill Kayle
A golden warrior goddess from a strife-torn world, Kayle arrived in Runeterra on the back of a glittering, serpentine dragon. She searches for allies to fight an epic war against the diabolical hordes of her faithless sister. Planet Earth had failed to produce warriors of mettle, so she travelled to Runeterra in search of warriors of metal. Communicating via grand, symphonic metal operas, the depthless sorrow of her arias pierce the hearts of all who hear them. Literally.
