But no seriously, Final Boss Veigar has a TON of great references!

docdrex:

His voice lines are riddled with them, as well as his skills and animations too! And I’m pretty terrible with video game history and I’m sure I’m missing plenty of them, but here’s the few that I noticed!

Some other things to note!

  • His usual gauntlet is replaced with the fabled Power Glove, an old famous NES controller accessory
  • During Final Boss Veigar’s recall animation, he plugs in the Konami Code onto his power glove
  • his /joke animation turns him into a pixel sprite very similar to those used in Final Fantasy I
  • Veigar’s “Baleful Strike” (Q) particle is modeled after Aghanim’s Fireball from Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Veigar’s “Dark Matter” (W) particle is modeled after Tetris blocks, changing configurations per cast

These are just what I’ve noticed and I’m sure there’s plenty more! Great job on the skin, Riot! <3

holy shit!
