Best Aatrox Skins in League of Legends 2022: Every Skin Ranked from Best to Worst

Aatrox has quite a few of them when it comes to skins, although we wouldn’t mind a few more in the future.

Aatrox is one of the few Darkin champions in League of Legends. Darkin are ascended warriors traumatized by void war and self-inflicted by blood magic. All Darkin were imprisoned in weapons, unable to regain their own form. A long time ago, the Darkin Blade, Aatrox, took control over his wielder.

Aatrox got his rework in Season 8, giving him a very different kit than he used to have. After the rework, Aatrox found a lot of popularity in the professional scene and received four new skins. He has been a strong top laner for quite a few seasons now.

In total, Aatrox has seven skins at the time of writing this article. But I’m sure Aatrox mains would love to have a few more skins that are really gorgeous with unique animations and visual models. So if you are looking to buy a skin for Aatrox, we will help you with some options to go for.

All Aatrox Skins in League of Legends

Justicar Aatrox

  • Release Date: June 12, 2013
  • Price: 975 RP

Although this is the oldest Aatrox skin, many Aatrox players consider this skin to be the best. This skin shows Aatrox in an entirely different light, turning him from evil to something angelic. The blue and gold color scheme adds a royal feel to him. Although the animations are pretty basic, the price is also low. Overall this skin is excellent certainly worth the price tag.

Mecha Aatrox

  • Release Date: July 23, 2014
  • Price: 1350 RP

This is another one of the good Aatrox skins. The animations and particles are different, and the Q animation feels very smooth. But the base model and ult animations could use some touch-up. Also, the splash art makes him look like a massive transformer, but the in-game model looks more like a Lego figurine.

Sea Hunter Aatrox

  • Release Date: July 22, 2015
  • Price: 750 RP

Though Aatrox doesn’t have very high-end skins, almost all his skins are well designed. Sea Hunter is the cheapest Aatrox skin in the entire lineup, but still, this skin has a lot going on. Though you get no animations or anything, the visual model looks really cool. The pirate theme with a bizarre head and blue wings make this skin lowkey fire.

Blood Moon Aatrox

  • Release Date: January 10, 2019
  • Price: 1350 RP

Just look at that gorgeous splash art. I got a little disappointed with the in-game model as I expected a lot more seeing the splash art. But still, it is one of the best Aatrox skins in the game. The color theme of the Blood Moon skin line fits very well with Aatrox. He looks badass with red wings on his ultimate. You get all the bells and whistles as well with this skin.

Blood Moon Aatrox Prestige Edition

  • Release Date: January 10, 2019
  • Price: Limited, 100 Prestige Points

You would think that the prestige edition would be better than the regular version. But sadly, that is not the case with this skin. Yes, the prestige edition skin is rarer, but you have to consider the cost as well. You can get so many better prestige edition skins with 100 prestige points than this one. The Blood Moon skin is perfect, but the prestige edition is just a recolor of that skin, and honestly, it doesn’t fit very well. The white wings are a nice touch, though.

Victorious Aatrox

  • Release Date: November 21, 2019
  • Price: Not Available anymore, Rank Reward for Season 9

If you have this skin, good for you. But if you don’t, you aren’t missing much, to be honest. The sword and wings look nice. But from the front, this skin looks atrocious. They have Aatrox wearing something that looks like a sweater. It doesn’t look good at all to me. The animations are decent, and the angelic look could have worked well only if the model was good enough.

Odyssey Aatrox

  • Release Date: October 15, 2020
  • Price: 1350 RP

Yes, you are right; Aatrox kind of looks like Thanos in this one. Even his gloves resemble Thanos’ gloves, and the whole galactic theme fits well. Also, his wings during ultimate have similarities to his Mecha skin. Overall this skin is not bad at all. It is the newest skin of Aatrox, so the animations and the character model are more detailed than other skins.

LoL Best Aatrox Skins in 2022

  • S-Tier (Best): Justicar Aatrox
  • A-Tier (Good): Blood Moon Aatrox, Mecha Aatrox
  • B-Tier (Average): Odyssey Aatrox, Blood Moon Aatrox Prestige Edition, Sea Hunter Aatrox
  • C-Tier (Not Recommended): Victorious Aatrox


Justicar Aatrox is, in my opinion, the best skin right now. Being the oldest skin also brings a legacy vibe with a reasonable price of 975 RP.


Blood Mood Aatrox and Mecha Aatrox on our A-tier. Some might even consider these two to be the best as they have more animations to them than Justicar Aatrox, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Any of these skins is good to play Aatrox with repeatedly.


Odyssey Aatrox is good but not at the level of the previous three. To me, the Blood Moon Aatrox Prestige Edition was a downgrade from the regular version with a very high cost. So they sit at B tier for now along with Sea Hunter Aatrox, which is the cheapest Aatrox skin. But it is good enough not to be in Tier C.


Victorious Aatrox didn’t appeal to me at all because of the design of his front side. It completely ruins the game’s immersion when a badass evil Darkin warrior is wearing a nerdy sweater vest.
