Looking for the best Akali skins to style on your enemies? You’re in the right place.

Akali, The Rouge Assassin, released in 2010, is one of the most renowned champions in League of Legends. Hailing from the region of Iona, Akali was a part of Shen’s Kinkou Order. After abandoning the order, she now roams her homeland as a rouge assassin hellbent on defending it from its enemies, one kill at a time.

In terms of gameplay, Akali is a hypermobile melee assassin who excels at taking out backline targets. Her abilities have tons of mixed AD and AP damage, which makes her very hard to itemize. Not only that, she can stealth in and out of combat, making her very hard to lock down.

In terms of lane, she is very flexible. She can be played as an assassin in the Mid-Lane, but she can also be played in the Top-Lane with a bruiserish build.

With the introduction out of the way, let’s talk about why we are here, to talk about skins. Akali has a total of 19 skins as of writing this. She ties in with Lux and Miss Fortune for having the send most skins in the game.

Compared to most champions, that is a big number. But not all her skins are that good. In this article, we will go through all the Akali skins and see which ones are actually worth buying.

Best Akali Skins

Now, we’ll rank each of the Akali skins released in League of Legends thus far. We will rate them by putting them from worst to best.

19. Stinger Akali

  • Release Date: May 11, 2010
  • Price: 520 RP
  • Chroma: 0

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model

Stinger Akali is probably the weakest skin in her skin collection. The skin only features a slight model change and no additional effects whatsoever. Unless you are collecting skins, there’s no reason to buy this skin.

18. All-star Akali

  • Release Date: June 24, 2010
  • Price: 975 RP
  • Chroma: 0

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model

Similar to Stinger Akali, All-Star Akali doesn’t have anything going for the skin. It has a very solid football-inspired model but doesn’t have anything else to offer.

17. Silverfang Akali

  • Release Date: November 29, 2011
  • Price: 975 RP
  • Chroma: 0

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects

Silverfang Akali tries to make Akali even more badass than she already is, but the lack of animations doesn’t really help the skin achieve what it set out to do. If the skin had been released with modern effects and animations, the skin would’ve fared a lot better.

16. Sashimi Akali

  • Release Date: September 7, 2016
  • Price: 750 RP
  • Chroma: 0

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects

In terms of theme, Sashimi Akali is pretty fantastic, but the execution is where Riot fumbled. The skin has a simplistic yet very solid model, and the skin has some neat effects. But the lack of any new animations hurts the skin a lot.

Imagine Akali slicing up fish instead of eating Ramen in her taunt animation, it would’ve made the skin a lot better.

Overall, a solid skin but there are far better.

15. Blood Moon Akali

  • Release Date: June 7, 2011
  • Price: 975 RP
  • Chroma: 0

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation

Blood Moon Akali truly makes her feel like a Ninja. The skin has decent animations, effects, and a fantastic model. But compared to the modern skins’ is simply lackluster, which is why this skin is placed so low on our list.

14. Nurse Akali

  • Release Date: January 4, 2011
  • Price: 975 RP
  • Chroma: 8

Nurse Akali currently has Eight chromas, and each chroma costs 290RP.

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects

As a skin, Nurse Akali doesn’t really have the best effects, animations, or model but what makes up for those things is how goofy the skin is. Imagine a notorious assassin dressed up as a nurse looking after patients; that’s what this skin ultimately is.

13. Headhunter Akali

  • Release Date: March 23, 2015
  • Price: 1350 RP
  • Chroma: 3

Headhunter Akali currently has Three chromas, and each chroma costs 290RP.

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation

Headhunter Akali is one of her earlier Epic skins. The skin has solid effects, animations, and a pretty good-looking model. But there are other skins on the list that are a lot cheaper and have better features and animations.

12. Infernal Akali

  • Release Date: May 11, 2010
  • Price: 520 RP
  • Chroma: 0

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation

Infernal Akali has to be the best value-for-money skin in the game. For a 520 skin, the skin has fantastic effects and animations. Moreover, the model for the skin looks fantastic as well. So if you are looking for a cheap yet solid skin for Akali, definitely pick up Infernal Akali.

11. PROJECT: Akali

  • Release Date: August 1, 2019
  • Price: 1350 RP
  • Chroma: 9

PROJECT: Akali currently has Nine chromas, and each chroma costs 290RP. The Ruby version of the PROJECT: Akali chroma can be obtained by purchasing the PROJECT: Akali chroma bundle.

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • Voice Filter

PROJECT: Akali is what Headhunter Akali wishes it would have been. Both the skin has a similar futuristic theme, but in terms of everything else, PROJECT: Akali simply edges out.

However, the skin does have some problems; the helmet of the skin looks really off, and the hair feels really awkward in-game; other than that a solid skin.

10. Crime City Nightmare Akali

  • Release Date: August 26, 2021

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • Voice Filter

Crime City Nightmare Akali is supposed to have a sort of mafia vibe to it, but the more I play with it, the less mafia vibe I get. The skin makes Akali feel like a demon in disguise rather than a mafia member. Other than the skin is actually decent. It has solid chromas and the new voice filter makes her sound even more demonic.

9. True Damage Akali

  • Release Date: November 10, 2019

  • Chroma: 7

True Damage Akali currently has Seven chromas, and each chroma costs 290RP. The Ruby version of the True Damage Akali chroma can be obtained by purchasing the True Damage Akali chroma bundle. The Freestyle version is event-exclusive.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation

True Damage Akali presents Akali in a more modern street-style aesthetic, which flows really well with the music from True Damage. All her abilities also have effects that match her new style. Overall, if you like this sort of aesthetic, you are going to like this skin.

8. K/DA ALL OUT Akali

  • Release Date: October 29, 2020

  • Chroma: 8

K/DA ALL OUT Akali currently has Eight chromas, and each chroma costs 290RP. The Ruby version of the K/DA ALL OUT Akali chroma can be obtained by purchasing the K/DA ALL OUT Akali chroma bundle. The BADDEST version is event-exclusive.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation

K/DA ALL OUT Akali is a very solid skin. It has a very beautiful-looking model and has great animations. But what makes her better than most of her other skins in the list are the sound effects. The skin has some of the best sound effects of all her skin.

But unfortunately, there is another music-related skin line that outdoes the skin in almost all departments.

7. K/DA Akali

  • Release Date: November 3, 2018

  • Chroma: 0

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation

Out of all her music-related skins, K/DA Akali has to be the best. It’s unique style, neon effects, fantastic animations can’t be beaten by even the newer music-related skins. Maybe its the nostalgia speaking, but I feel like K/DA Akali still remains one of her best skins.

6. Coven Akali

Coven Akali is the newest skin added to her skin collection. The skin features Akali in occult attire, with masks, feather dresses, and adornments to match. It feels like what Crime City Nightmare Akali actually could’ve been.

5. Prestige K/DA Akali

Most earlier Prestige skins are regarded as many as glorified golden chromas. However, the golden aesthetic really suits Akali, and pair that up with updated effects of the base K/DA Akali, you’ve got yourself a formula for a fantastic skin.

4. Prestige K/DA Akali (2022)

Unfortunately, the skin is no longer available for purchase.

3. DRX Akali

DRX Akali was given to DRX Zeka for his fantastic performance in Worlds 2022.

This skin was released in 2023 and is one of her best skins. Akali, in this skin, dawns a light blue attire with blue armor pieces, which fits quite well with Akali. DRX Akali also comes with a new VFX, a new model, and a new recall animation with added DRX flair.

2. Prestige Coven Akali

So, if you like playing Aklai definitely consider picking up this skin.

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation

It was pretty hard choosing between Prestige Coven Akali and Star Guardian Akali, but ultimately, Star Guardian Akali slightly edges out on top. The skin has a ton of changes compared to all her skins; she has a new voiceover, new model, and the effects are also new. But what makes her better than Prestige Coven Akali are the chromas. Each of the chromas are very good-looking and can help with the skins customization.
