The species of the worlds of League of Legends are numerous and diverse. From the bipedal vastaya to the winged tiger-like protectors, from magical of to the unremarkable.

For easier navigation, the species are divided into 4 distinctions: Sapient, Sentient, Non-Sentient, and Other.

Sapient

Unlike Earth, Runeterra has a large number of sapient species. These sapient species can range from being able to use primitive tools to one's advantage to god-like feats like forging literal stars.
