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

The champion Nunu Nunu consists of two beings:

Abilities

Edit

Call of the Freljord

Call of the Freljord.png

Innate: When Nunu and Willump deal damage against an enemy Champion icon.png champion, large Monster icon.png monster or Turret icon.png structure, they and a nearby allied champion gain Call of the Freljord for 4 seconds, prioritizing the ally with Attack speed icon.png highest attack speed.

Call of the Freljord: Gain Attack speed icon.png 20% bonus attack speed and Movement speed icon.png 10% bonus movement speed. Willump's Basic Attack.png basic attacks additionally deal 30% AD physical damage to secondary targets in a cone in front of him.

Nunu and Willump cannot trigger Call of the Freljord from the same enemy again for a time. Successive triggers of Call of the Freljord will stack the duration.

Info
  • The splash damage will critically strike when the basic attack does, but will not deal any bonus damage.
  • Call of the Freljord range to be shared with allies is based on Nunu and Willump's location.
    • If no ally is prioritized based on their stats, it will be given to the one closest to them.
  • Enemies that can trigger Call of the Freljord have a marker overhead.
    • This marker isn't present on inhibitors or the nexus (because they cannot hold buffs and debuffs including the one that hosts this VFX), but they still trigger Call of the Freljord when attacked.

Edit

Consume

Consume.png

Active: Willump takes a bite out of the target enemy, dealing damage and Heal power icon.png healing himself. The heal is increased by 50% when he is below 50% maximum health.

Against Minion icon.png minions and Monster icon.png monsters he deals Hybrid penetration icon.png true damage. Additionally, if Consume would kill the target minion or small or medium monster, the target is Stun icon.png stunned and Airborne icon.png pulled towards Willump over the cast time.

Non-Champion Damage:
340 / 500 / 660 / 820 / 980
Base Healing from Non-Champions:
65 / 95 / 125 / 155 / 185 (+ 90% AP) (+ 10% bonus health)
Empowered Healing from Non-Champions:
97.5 / 142.5 / 187.5 / 232.5 / 277.5 (+ 135% AP) (+ 15% bonus health)

Against Champion icon.png champions he deals magic damage and the heal is reduced to 60%.

Champion Damage:
60 / 100 / 140 / 180 / 220 (+ 65% AP) (+ 5% bonus health)
Base Healing from Champions:
39 / 57 / 75 / 93 / 111 (+ 54% AP) (+ 6% bonus health)
Empowered Healing from Champions:
58.5 / 99.375 / 140.25 / 181.125 / 222 (+ 81% AP) (+ 9% bonus health)

Info
  • Icon border glows when he is within the maximum healing threshold.
    • This counts as an immobilization for triggering Immolate.
  • Spell Shield.png Spell shields will block the damage and the heal.
  • If the target becomes Untargetable icon.png untargetable, Death.png dies, or is too far away or no longer in Sight icon.png sight during the cast time, this ability will cancel but does not go on Cooldown icon.png cooldown nor pay its cost (if applicable).

Biggest Snowball Ever!

Biggest Snowball Ever!.png

Active: Willump Remove Scurvy.png cleanses himself from all Slow icon.png slows and Channeling icon.png channels for up to 10 seconds, becoming Ghost.png ghosted, Slow immune 2.png slow-immune and creating a rolling snowball snowball. Willump automatically navigates his movement and can steer the snowball with a slow turn rate that increases over time, resetting upon changing direction. The duo have their Movement speed icon.png movement speed reduced by 50% for the first 1 second, but after a delay they start gaining 14 movement speed every 0.25 seconds, up to a cap.

The snowball increases in size and power over 5 seconds. Biggest Snowball Ever! can be recast after 0.5 seconds during the channel, and does so automatically after the channel or if Silence icon.png interrupted.

The snowball explodes upon hitting an enemy Champion icon.png champion, Summon Tibbers.png large pet, medium / large Monster icon.png monster or terrain, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies, increased by 0% − 400% (based on charge time), Airborne icon.png knocking them up for 0.5 − 0.75 (based on charge time) seconds and subsequently Stun icon.png stunning them for 0 − 0.5 (based on charge time) seconds.

Minimum Explosion Damage:
36 / 45 / 54 / 63 / 72 (+ 30% AP)
Maximum Explosion Damage:
180 / 225 / 270 / 315 / 360 (+ 150% AP)

The snowball rolls over enemy Minion icon.png minions and small monsters hit, dealing 33.3% of the damage as magic damage.

Minimum Rollover Damage:
11.988 / 14.985 / 17.982 / 20.979 / 23.976 (+ 9.99% AP)
Maximum Rollover Damage:
59.94 / 74.925 / 89.91 / 104.895 / 119.88 (+ 49.95% AP)
Biggest Snowball Ever! 2.png

Recast: Willump releases the snowball, sending it rolling forward up to a maximum distance during which it will not grow any larger and will explode upon hitting an enemy.

    "This is gonna be the biggest snowball ever!"

Info
  • The initial cast and the manual recast count as ability activations for the purposes of on-cast effects such as Sheen item.png Spellblade and Force Pulse Force Pulse.
  • The movement speed reduction the duo receive from initially casting Biggest Snowball Ever! is not considered a Slow icon.png slow, thus it will not be resisted by their Slow immune 2.png slow immunity.
  • There are 3 stages where the turn rate increases from the original one:
    • After turning for 1 second, the turn rate is increased to 175%.
    • After turning for 3 seconds, the turn rate is increased to 250%.
    • After turning for 6 seconds, the turn rate is increased to 325% where it caps.
  • The time threshold to begin gaining bonus movement speed may be bugged, as Flat Bonus MS increases the time while % Bonus MS decreases the time.
    • The formula appears to be (X ÷ 100) - Y, where:
      • X = Total Flat MS after caps
      • Y = 0.1 per 1% %MS
    • The delay is not modified from its initially calculated value on-cast, even if additional movement speed is gained.
  • Nunu and Willump keep all increases in movement speed at time of cast for the duration of the charge.
  • Nunu and Willump's movement speed always increases in increments of ~14, reaching the greater value between 「 Total MS + 85 − 255 (based on level) 」「 Total Uncapped Flat MS + 85 − 255 (based on level) 」 (click to toggle).
    • This takes 6 increments to reach the Total MS + 85, but may take more to reach the Uncapped Flat + 85. Due to flat bonuses increasing the time threshold, it is possible for the ability's effects to end before reaching the total uncapped movement speed.
    • The bonus movement speed ignores the movement speed cap.
  • If Nunu turns continuously he will create a 600 unit circle, increased with bonus movement speed, striking the same point up to 3 times, for a maximum of 180 / 225 / 270 / 315 / 360 (+ 300% AP) magic damage. The damage can be further increased by detonating the snowball, for a total of 360 / 450 / 540 / 630 / 720 (+450% AP) magic damage.
  • Ryze's Ryze's Realm Warp Realm Warp will only teleport Nunu and Willump, leaving the snowball snowball behind.
  • Hovering the cursor on the HUD (e.g mini map / champion portraits) does not affect the cast and steering of Biggest Snowball Ever!.
  • Nunu gains a slightly larger field of view during Biggest Snowball Ever!.
  • Biggest Snowball Ever! is disabled for the first 15 seconds of the game.
  • Unstoppable icon.png Displacement immunity will not resist the application of the Stun icon.png stun.

    Snowball Barrage

    Snowball Barrage.png

    Active: Nunu swiftly throws a volley of 3 snowballs in the target direction over 0.4 seconds that each shatter upon hitting an enemy, dealing magic damage to enemies in a cone.

    Damage Per Snowball:
    16 / 24 / 32 / 40 / 48 (+ 10% AP)
    Damage Per Volley:
    48 / 72 / 96 / 120 / 144 (+ 30% AP)
    Total Magic Damage:
    144 / 216 / 288 / 360 / 432 (+ 90% AP)

    Enemies hit 3 times are Slow icon.png slowed for 1 second. Champion icon.png Champions and large Monster icon.png monsters hit once are marked Snowbound for 4 seconds, refreshing on each hit. Snowball Barrage can be recast twice within 3 seconds at no additional cost and with a cooldown in between casts.

    Slow:
    30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50%

    Recast: Nunu hurls another volley of snowballs, mimicking the first cast's effects. An enemy may only be Slow icon.png slowed once for being hit by snowballs.

    After 3 seconds from the first cast, Snowbound enemies near Willump take magic damage and are Root icon.png rooted for 0.5 − 1.5 (based on level) seconds.

    Magic Damage:
    20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 (+ 80% AP)

    Info
    • Each cast volley of snowballs counts as an ability activation for the purposes of on-cast effects such as Sheen item.png Spellblade and stacking Force Pulse Force Pulse
      • Each volley of snowballs is also a separate cast instance, allowing Snowball Barrage to trigger Phase Rush Phase Rush on its own or trigger 6 stacks of Conqueror Conqueror.
      • Snowbound consumption does not trigger on-cast effects, neither does it count as a separate cast instance (e.g. for the purposes of Conqueror Conqueror).
    • The three snowballs are thrown independently from one another over the 0.4 seconds and their direction is determined from Nunu & Willump's position at any given moment.

    Edit

    Absolute Zero

    Absolute Zero.png

    Active: Nunu and Willump Channeling icon.png channel a blizzard for up to 3 seconds, gaining a Hybrid resistances icon.png shield and Slow icon.png slowing nearby enemies by 0% − 95% (based on channel time).

    Shield:
    65 / 75 / 85 (+ 150% AP) (+ 30 / 40 / 50% bonus health)

    Absolute Zero can be recast after 0.5 seconds during the channel, and does so automatically when the channel ends by any means.

    Absolute Zero 2.png

    Recast: Nunu and Willump explode, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies, modified to 0% − 100% (based on channel time). Affected enemies will remain Slow icon.png slowed for 0 − 3 (based on channel time) seconds and any of the duo's remaining shield will decay over 3 seconds.

    Magic Damage:
    625 / 950 / 1275 (+ 250% AP)

    Info
    • The initial cast and the manual recast count as ability activations for the purposes of on-cast effects such as Sheen item.png Spellblade and Force Pulse Force Pulse.
    • The affected area is hidden if the duo is not Sight icon.png visible to the enemy team.
    • While it's unlikely to happen normally, it is possible to deal zero damage with Absolute Zero if canceled as soon as it's started.

    Original
    RP 260
    21.02.2009
    Once upon a time, there was a boy who wanted to prove he was a hero by slaying a fearsome monster—only to discover that the beast, a lonely and magical yeti, merely needed a friend. Bound together by ancient power and a shared love of snowballs, Nunu and Willump now ramble wildly across the Freljord, breathing life into imagined adventures. They hope that somewhere out there, they will find Nunu’s mother. If they can save her, maybe they will be heroes after all…
