Annie has a ton of skins to choose from. So, let’s find out which ones are actually worth your money.

Annie, The Dark Child, released in 2009, is one of the oldest champions in League of Legends. Orphaned at a young age, Annie, with her trusted teddy bear, Tibbers, now roams around the dark forests of Noxus in search of a playmate.

In-game, Annie is a mid-range AP Mage who is known for her simplicity. Her abilities are simple to execute; she has good crowd control and an ample amount of damage. Due to her beginner-friendly nature, she is the perfect champion to start learning the game.

Easy-to-play champions are usually most popular in League of Legends, as anyone can pick them up anytime. Skins for these champions also tend to sell pretty well, which is why Riot releases more skins for such champions. Annie’s huge arsenal of skins is proof of this.

That said, Annie’s skins have tons of different concepts, from a pink and light-themed Sweetheart Annie to a dark-themed Goth Annie and everything in between. So, if you are looking to buy a skin for Annie, you have plenty of options to consider.

How Many Annie Skins Are There in 2023?

As of writing this article, Annie currently has Sixteen Skins in total. That said, most of her skins are pretty old and lackluster, but she does have some pretty decent skins.

So, before we go into more detail about Annie’s skins, let’s first organize all of them using Riot’s skin tier system to understand their values better.

  • Timeworn or Classic (520 RP): 2 (Red Riding Annie, Prom Queen Annie)
  • Budget or Deluxe (750 RP): 1 (Sweetheart Annie)
  • Standard or Superior (975 RP): 4 (Frostfire Annie, Reverse Annie, Panda Annie, FrankenTibbers Annie)
  • Epic (1350 RP): 5 (Super Galaxy Annie, Cafe Cuties Annie, Fright Night Annie, Winterblessed Annie, Lunar Beast Annie)
  • Legendary (1820 RP): 1 (Annie in Wonderland)
  • Mythic (Special): 3 (Goth Annie, Hextech Annie, Annie-Versary)
  • Ultimate (3250/2775 RP): 0

Best Annie Skins

Now that we have a better understanding of the skins, we’ll rank each of the Annie skins released in League of Legends thus far.

We will rate them by putting them from worst to best.

16. Prom Queen Annie

  • Release Date: February 7, 2011
  • Price: 520 RP
  • Chroma: 0

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

  • New Model

Prom Queen Annie is one of her worst and, unsurprisingly, one of her earlier skins.

For 520 RP, you get different character models for Annie and her Tibbers, and that is it. Everything else is the same as the original skin. So unless you are collecting all Annie skins, there’s no reason to go for this skin.

15. Red Riding Annie

  • Release Date: April 27, 2010
  • Price: 520 RP
  • Chroma: 0

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

  • New Model

This is Annie’s second skin after Goth Annie. To be honest, this skin did not stand the test of time. It’s just Annie in a Red Riding Hood outfit. Although the price is meager, there isn’t any point in buying this skin.

14. Sweetheart Annie

  • Release Date: February 13, 2015
  • Price: 750 RP
  • Chroma: 0

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

  • New Model

This skin is cute, and Tibbers looks fluffy without any sharp claws for the first time. The price is also low. Still, I don’t think it looks that great. One or Two games with this skin are fine, but I would get bored if I played more than that. This skin has no new animations or anything to make the experience more fun.

13. Annie in Wonderland

  • Release Date: August 16, 2010
  • Price: 1820 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

Annie in Wonderland suffers from the issues most older Legendary skin has; the skin doesn’t have a new voiceover, no new animations, and not even a new Recall Animation. Compared to modern Legendary skins, the skin is pretty bland. So, unless you really like this skin, there’s no reason to buy this one.

12. Reverse Annie

  • Release Date: September 6, 2011
  • Price: 975 RP
  • Chroma: 0

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

  • New Model

The concept of this skin is simply brilliant. You get Annie dressed up in a cute teddy bear outfit, and her Tibbers is dressed up as Annie. But, unfortunately, there is not much to it other than this—no animations or sound effects to speak of. And the price is still relatively high.

11. Frostfire Annie

  • Release Date: May 24, 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

It’s pretty hard not to like Frostfire Annie. It’s a winter-themed skin with some decent animations, a pretty good model, and the blue fire looks pretty cool on Annie. Unfortunately, there is another winter-themed skin that does the same job but is a lot better.

10. Panda Annie

  • Release Date: February 8, 2013
  • 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

This is a pretty good skin with some solid animations and effects, although very subtle. You also get a new recall animation. The champion model looks good as well. For 975 RP, this is definitely not bad skin.

9. FrankenTibbers Annie

  • Release Date: October 19, 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

This is a brilliant Annie skin. Annie looks excellent with the new hairstyle, and Tibbers steals the show looking like Frankenstein. The fiery green effects on her abilities also go perfectly with the skin. Though we would love new animations, sadly, there aren’t any. Still, I love how this skin looks in-game; definitely worth the price.

8. Goth Annie

  • Release Date: October 27, 2009
  • Price: 975 RP (Digital Collector’s Pack)
  • 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

Goth Annie was the first skin released for Annie, and surprisingly, the skin holds up pretty nicely. The skin has a decent model, new sound effects, and visual effects. Unfortunately, it’s part of the digital Digital Collector’s Pack, so you might need to pay a little extra for the skin.

7. Hextech Annie

  • Release Date: March 15, 2016
  • Price: 125 Mythic Essence
  • 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

Despite being part of the notorious Hextech skin line, Hextech Annie is surprisingly decent. The skin has good animations and effects, but most importantly, Tibbers looks awesome in this skin. So, if you have Mythic Essence to spare, consider picking it up for 125 ME.

6. Lunar Beast Annie

  • Release Date: February 4, 2021
  • Price: 1350 RP
  • Chroma: 7

Lunar Beast Annie currently has Seven chromas, and each chroma costs 290RP. The Ruby version of the Lunar Beast Annie chroma can be obtained by purchasing the Lunar Beast Annie chroma bundle. The Vitality version of the Lunar Beast Annie is a Limited-time chroma.

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

This skin shares some resemblance with Panda Annie, but this skin looks a lot better. New animations, sound effects, and even a new recall animation are there to give you a wholly unique experience. Overall, it is a very colorful and fun skin.

5. Super Galaxy Annie

  • Release Date: October 16, 2017
  • Price: 1350 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

Despite being released in 2017, Super Galaxy Annie remains one of Annie’s best skins. The model for Mecha-Tibbers looks awesome. Annie’s model looks minimalistic but cool, and it has really solid SFX and VFX. Not only that, the skin has one of the best recall animations of any Annie skin.

The only thing that holds this skin back is the lack of Chromas.

4. Annie-Versary

  • 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

This skin was part of the League of Legends’ 10th-anniversary promotion event. During the event, this skin was given to all players for free. Unfortunately, Annie-Versary it is now unobtainable.

3. Winterblessed Annie

  • Chroma: 9

Winterblessed Annie currently has Nine chromas, and each chroma costs 290RP. The Ruby version of the Winterblessed Annie chroma can be obtained by purchasing the Winterblessed Annie chroma bundle. The Wreathguard version of the Winterblessed Annie is a Limited-time chroma.

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

If I had to describe Winterblessed Annie, it would be “Frostfire Annie but Better.” Similar to Frostfire Annie, it is another winter-themed skin, but it features vastly superior effects and animations. It even has nine chromas.

So, if you liked Frostfire Annie, you are definitely going to like this one.

2. Cafe Cuties Annie

  • Chroma: 8

Cafe Cuties Annie currently has Eight chroma, and each chroma costs 290RP. The Ruby version of the Cafe Cuties Annie chroma can be obtained by purchasing the Cafe Cuties Annie chroma bundle.

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

In terms of model, Cafe Cuties Annie probably has the best model of all the Annie skins. It is incredibly detailed and looks very cute. In terms of effects and animations, it’s no slouch, either. Definitely a must-buy if you are looking for a good Annie skin.

1. Fright Night Annie

Fright Night Annie currently has Eight chroma, and each chroma costs 290RP. The Ruby version of the Fright Night Annie chroma can be obtained by purchasing the Fright Night Annie 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

Fright Night Annie takes inspiration from The Addams Family and resembles the character Wednesday Addams.

References aside, Fright Night Annie is definitely one of her best skin. The skin takes the eerie aspects of Goth Annie and cranks it up a notch. Not only that, but its effects are fantastic, and the model is very spooky. Overall, it’s a solid skin.
