  • After an extended demonstration period, the League of Legends Wiki is moving forward with its planned restructuring of Character pages.
  • Character pages will now be structured more similarly to the character pages of other Fandoms and will provide editor-written overviews of important stories and relationships.
  • A champion's Biography will now be found on a dedicated article - as with other story articles.
  • Lore and Relations trivia has been moved here from Neeko/Trivia, and should only be found here henceforth.
  • The League of Legends Wiki is stepping into new territory with these truly character-focused articles - so any and all contributions would be appreciated!

Hailing from a long lost tribe of vastaya, Neeko Neeko can blend into any crowd by borrowing the appearances of others, even absorbing something of their emotional state to tell friend from foe in an instant. No one is ever sure where—or who—Neeko might be, but those who intend to do her harm will soon witness her true colors revealed, and feel the full power of her primordial spirit magic unleashed upon them.

The Monster of Kalduga Outpost

By Matthew Dunn

Neeko was familiar with the shapes of humans, and while they had their quirks—socks for instance… why?—they never struck her as particularly strange. Not until the outpost at Kalduga.

Trivia

  • Neeko is a few hundred years old, but her maturity is at the level of someone in their late teens or early twenties.[2]
    • She may be about 180 years old.[3]
  • Neeko is NOT a Vastayashai'rei.
    • Neeko is not a pure Vastayashai’rei, but she is closer to it than most of the other vastaya. The Oovi-Kat tribe splintered off from the vastaya tribes very early and have largely lived in isolation, so their magic is more pure and ancient than other vastaya. There is very, very little human blood in Neeko’s lineage.[4]
    • It is revealed that Neeko being a Vastayashai'rei was a mistake in the script.[5]
  • The Oovi-Kat looked at the shedding tails as milestones in maturity, like birthdays. This does not occur annually, but is linked to growth in the spiritual realm.[6] Neeko is currently on her fourth tail.
  • The flowers on her head are actually beautiful glands, like the pineal gland, which allow Neeko to sense and interact with people's Sho'Ma.[7]
  • Her favorite food is cheese bread.[8]
    • This is a reference to pão de queijo, Brazilian cheese bread, because her voice actress is Brazilian.
  • Neeko Neeko is better, faster at shapeshifting than other Vastaya types thanks to her more powerful connection to magic and being attracted to an animal spirit that is good at changing. Neeko could change her appearance dramatically in 2 seconds and hold it for several days.[9][10] Neeko's size when shape shifting is only limited by the immensity of her shoma. She could become an exact replica of Galio Galio but wouldn't be able to hold it for long.[11]
  • Neeko has lines showing romantic interest in female champions and was confirmed by her writer, Matt "FauxSchizzle" Dunn, to be the first known lesbian champion.[12]
