Poro is a group unique to a small set of cards which are present in all Runeterra region.png regions - usually one per region, many in the Freljord LoR Region.png Freljord.

The Poro cards represent the in-universe much-loved fluffy species of animal found across Runeterra Crest icon.png Runeterra, friends to Braum, Poros.

Thematically, they are associated with unexpected strength, strength in numbers, camaraderie, friendship, and love.


Strategy

  • Each region has a LoR mana icon alt.png 1|LoR Power.png 1|LoR Health.png 1 poro with a single keyword representative of that region.
    • The game plan of poro decks is to accumulate value by collecting keywords and stats.
  • Generally, Poros synergize well with the Freljord LoR Region.png Freljord, especially LoR Champion Indicator.png4Braum.
  • LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png6 Heart of the Fluft is a common (but not always essential) card in decks based around this unit group. This is due to the win-condition it provides these decks, turning the many small creatures into one formidable unit with many keywords.
    • Poros from across the regions can offer the LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png6 fluft keywords that can especially heighten its strength, examples being Keyword Elusive.svg Elusive (LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png1 Daring Poro), Keyword Overwhelm.svg Overwhelm (LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png3 Mighty Poro), and Keyword Fearsome.svg Fearsome (LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png1 Sinister Poro), all of which can either completely prevent units from Keyword Block.png blocking, or at least make the blockers considerably less effective.
    • LoR Spell Non-Slow Indicator.png3 Poro Snax are very high value alongside this unit, so long as they are used before it's Keyword Play.svg played, as it can effectively multiply the Power and Health the fluft receives.

Trivia

  • Freljord LoR Region.png Freljord has a thematic association with the species, hence it being the region the archetype is based around, despite their actual origin being unclear (For more on the origin of poros, see Poro).
  • The keywords of Poros from outside of the Freljord tend to be ones that their regions heavily feature, or at least has some association with, for example LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png1 Sinister Poro having Keyword Fearsome.svg Fearsome, one of the main keywords of the Shadow Isles LoR Region.png Shadow Isles.
    • These Poros also often represent in-universe thematics of the regions, similar to how Yordles do - for example, LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png1 Plunder Poro from Bilgewater Crest icon.png Bilgewater is associated with crime and piracy.
  • The Poro units in Legends of Runeterra icon.png Legends of Runeterra were the first time that a large number of Poros were sighted outside of the Freljord Crest icon.png Freljord, in media that's confirmed to be canon.
