The game features many different skins, but players have yet to encounter most of the game's various types of skins. Then, very rare skins are either available for a limited time or are very hard to get.

Collector's Edition Skins

Silver Kayle

Black Alistar

Young Ryze

Three skins were released when League of Legends launched in 2009. They were rewards for pre-ordering the Collector's Edition, Digital, or Retail Editions. The Silver Kayle skin came with all Collector's Editions, while the Black Alistar and Young Ryze skins were exclusive rewards. However, Riot deactivated the redemption codes for these skins in 2014, making them unobtainable even if you buy the Ancient Collector's Edition.

PAX Prime Skins

PAX Jax, PAX Twisted Fate, and PAX Sivir are three rare skins in League of Legends. These skins were exclusively given to players who attended the Penny Arcade Expo Event between 2009 and 2011. Each skin has its unique theme.

PAX Twisted Fate


PAX Sivir

The PAX Sivir skin has a futuristic look resembling a science fiction movie character. The skin features a black costume with neon blue and red accents, and the character has white hair. The skin was inspired by the 2010 movie Tron and has many similarities to the characters in the film.

Players who attended the event could get all these skins with a code they received. Before 2014, players who missed out on the event could purchase the code online from someone who attended the event and then use it in the League of Legends store. However, it is almost impossible to get these skins through normal means. Players can purchase accounts with desired skins for $200-$700 - the only option now.

UFO Corki

The UFO Corki skin was a free reward for players who created their accounts before January 14, 2010. This skin was introduced to the game after League of Legends received the Readers' Choice Award from IGN and Gamespy. Unfortunately, once the deadline passed, the skin was no longer available to obtain.

The skin offered more than just a change in color scheme and weapons; it also replaced Corki's standard aircraft with a UFO ship with unique particle effects. Although players may not find this skin impressive nowadays, it was considered legendary back then.

Grey Warwick

Only a few players obtain this referral skin. To acquire Grey Warwick, you needed to persuade three friends to register using your referral link and level up their accounts to level 10 (obtaining the skin is now closed). Additionally, this skin could be obtained through progression in the honor system.

Medieval Twitch

Like Grey Warwick, the Medieval Twitch skin will soon lose its value and rarity due to the honor system, but at the moment, it is only encountered sometimes. To obtain this skin, players needed to attract 350 referral accounts. The skin has been unavailable for referral acquisition since 2015.

Riot Skins

Riot Blitzcrank

Riot Kayle

Riot K-9 Nasus

Riot Squad Singed

Riot Girl Tristana

Riot has released six unique skins: Riot Blitzcrank, Riot Graves, Riot Kayle, Riot K-9 Nasus, and Riot Squad Singed, Riot Girl Tristana. All of these skins are made in a riot police theme.

Players can't buy these skins in the game store. They can only be obtained by attending any official Riot event, and then the player will receive a promo code that activates the skin. But there is hope; these skins can be obtained through hextech crafting and loot boxes, so technically, players can still get them if they are fortunate.

Except for Riot Squad Singed. This is a unique skin; players could only get them with an event code in 2009, 2010, and 2011, but all of these codes were turned off in 2014.

Riot Squad Singed is currently the rarest skin in the Riot skin line, and there are no plans for it to re-release shortly, so it is one of the rarest skins in LoL in general.

King Rammus

In October 2009, League of Legends allowed some players to test their closed beta version. These players were gifted a rare skin called King Rammus as a gesture of appreciation. Since the end of the beta phase, it has been impossible to obtain this skin, making it a rare collector's item. Despite being older than the game itself, the skin only offers a cosmetic repaint of the character and does not provide any special abilities.


That skin was released on April 1, 2010, based on the canceled Champion concept named Urf the Manatee. The skin portrays Warwick wearing a manatee's corpse as an outfit. Initially, it was available for purchase for 5,000 RP, which made it the most expensive skin in League of Legends history. All the money raised from its sale was donated to a charity discouraging manatee hunting. The skin was later reintroduced to the game in 2017 but was still expensive, making it difficult to obtain.

Championship Riven

The Championship Riven skin was introduced to the game in 2012 to celebrate the World Championship. Players could purchase it for 975 RP or receive it as a gift to buy event tickets. The skin features blue and black effects instead of Riven's usual green spells and includes animation changes.

In 2016, Riot removed the Championship set, which included Riven and all the other Championship Skins up to that point. Nowadays, accounts with this skin can cost upwards of $500, depending on what other rare skins they possess.

Triumphant Ryze

Some skins are only available briefly and never return, while others may reappear later, albeit rarely. However, certain skins remain available for an extended period but are still challenging to obtain. This was the case for the Triumphant Ryze skin. To acquire Triumphant Ryze, players had to emerge victorious in a tournament sponsored by Riot in 2010.

Although numerous tournaments distributed this skin, and some still reward players with it today, finding a Triumphant Ryze on Summoner's Rift remains relatively rare.

Victorious Jarvan IV

The Victorious Jarvan IV has a remarkable history.

It was released in August 2011, yet never sold in the in-game store. Rewarding with this mount was done automatically to all qualifying. The conditions were straightforward: to have at least a gold or higher rank throughout the matches. Another thing worth noting: Victorious Jarvan IV is the first released at the season's ending.

Rusty Blitzcrank

This skin is one of the rarest in LoL and has yet to be sold long. This was released in November 2009, and Riot permanently removed this skin from the store within three months of its launch.

Riot never commented on why such a decision was made, but most League of Legends fans say that the textures are of such poor quality that it's a waste of RP.

The sudden removal of this skin is what made it famous.

Rusty Blitzcrank is not coming back to the in-game store. At least, that is what Riot says. On top of purchasing an account, your chances of getting that skin will be pretty impossible.

Judgment Kayle

In August 2011, a skin called "Judgment Kayle" was released in the game. It was awarded to players who had played at least ten games in Season 1. Since only a few players received it, the skin became extremely rare. Unlike other skins that depict Kayle wearing armor, in this one, she wears clothes. Her wings are silver-white, which represents the divine warrior. However, her wings take on a blue shade when she takes flight, symbolizing her darker side.


Which skin is considered the rarest?

It is uncertain who the answer to the question is, but it is believed to be Rusty Blitzcrank. However, Riot has permanently removed Rusty Blitzcrank from the game. Another possibility is King Rammus, a skin only available to players who participated in the beta test.

Which skins have been returned to the game at least once?

There is no exact answer, but is likely Rusty Blitzcrank because Riot has permanently taken him out of the game. Plus, King Rammus. This skin was present only for the beta testers.

Can players still get these skins?

Unfortunately, the only way to obtain one of these skins is by purchasing an account with one.
