Neeko is a champion in League of Legends.[1]

Abilities[]

Edit

Inherent Glamour

Inherent Glamour

Innate: Neeko has a collection of disguises to take on the appearance of allied champions. She can choose a new champion to switch her disguise or select herself to deactivate her disguise, placing Inherent Glamour on a 0.5-second cooldown. Taking damage from a Champion icon champion or Turret icon turret puts Inherent Glamour on a 2-second cooldown.

Standing by the nearest Sight icon visible allied or neutral non-champion non-structure unit while not disguised will gather its Sho'Ma over 2 seconds, adding its disguise to the collection. Activating this disguise places Inherent Glamour on a 1-second cooldown. Neeko can collect only one Sho'Ma, but can discard or consume it. She can store Sho'Ma from the following units:

While disguised, Neeko can use basic attacks while keeping her form. Her disguise breaks if her form takes lethal damage or if she becomes Stun icon immobilized, deals damage to a structure with a non-champion form, or uses a damaging ability, summoner spell, or item active.

Inherent Glamour's disguise is not deactivated from Pop Blossom Pop Blossom until after 0.5 seconds of its cast. Neeko cannot activate Inherent Glamour while she is unable to cast abilities.

Info
  • Neeko can store up the Sho'Ma of multiple units at a time.
  • Inherent Glamour's cooldown only prevents Neeko from activating disguises; she can still store and remove Sho'Ma while the passive is on cooldown.
  • If Neeko attempts to activate a disguise while near and for the trap, ward, or jungle plant she stored Sho'Ma for, she will leap to that unit's exact position over 1 second and then become disguised. If she does so for a monster and is near its respective jungle camp, she will leap to that monster's usual position in the camp.
    • She will fail to activate the disguise after the leap if she is affected by the same conditions that would break a disguise.
  • Neeko will copy aesthetics as well as superficial mechanical statistics. She will fake a number of readings:
    • Health bar (original's current amount becomes her apparent maximum)
    • Secondary resource - e.g. mana, energy or none at all (original's current amount becomes her apparent maximum)
    • Stats
    • Buffs and debuffs with their respective icons and VFX/SFX (there are exceptions)
      • Neeko sees the buffs that are actually applied to her, while enemies see the disguised champion's buffs.
    • Kill feed icon
  • A number of attributes she actually adopts are:
    • Base movement speed
    • The melee or ranged classification of the champion
    • Base attack speed and attack ratio
    • The projectile or non-projectile quality of their attack
    • Attack range (adopt the new form attack range)
    • Size (including size modifiers and base champion size)
    • Default transformation toggle (non-innate)
    • Voice lines
    • Character interactions (jokes, taunts, dances, laughs, toggle effects), as well as their Recall Recall animation
      • Neeko can copy Samira's Samira's taunt animation but she will not actually throw the coin via the Taunt Taunt ability.
  • Inherent Glamour's disguise is broken by the following spell casts:
  • The scoreboard's question mark of Neeko (which indicates an enemy is not currently visible to your team) will disappear, if the disguised disguised Neeko is visible. Therefore, it can be used to determine, whether a unit is Neeko or not.

    Original
    RP 975
    05.12.2018
    Hailing from a long lost tribe of vastaya, 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.
