A passive effect is an effect that is applied as a part of a larger action, or is present throughout the game. They grant added bonuses, some of which directly increase base stats, and may require activation or a condition to be met.

Passive abilities are champion abilities with only passive components.

There are several different types of passive effects, aside from the usual defensive, offensive or utility. These mainly are:
