Truth Dragon Yasuo
- Release Date: October 21, 2021
Truth Dragon Yasuo is another legendary skin released as a part of the Dragonmancer 2021 skin line. While Dream Dragon Yasuo has a purple skin tone, Truth Dragon Yasuo has a yellow hue.
One thing that gives Truth Dragon Yasuo a slight advantage over Dream Dragon Yasuo is that when pressing his ultimate, Truth Dragon Yasuo straight up turns into Super Saiyan Goku. And just for that one reason, you should choose Truth Dragon Yasuo over Dream Dragon Yasuo.
Dream Dragon Yasuo
- Release Date: October 21, 2021
Dream Dragon Yasuo is part of the popular Dragonmancer skin line. And in that event, he not only had one but two legendary skins. Dream Dragon Yasuo is full of purple, and if purple is your color, this is just the right skin for you.
- Release Date: September 23, 2021
Based on his splash art, he seems to have both Dawnbringer and Nightbringer swords. However, Riot confirmed that he joined Dawnbringer which is the opposite of his brother, Yasuo, who has the Nightbringer skin.
“Prophecy dictates that the gods will destroy each other, ushering in the end of creation itself- but Yone is determined to defy fate. A half-mortal, half-god born of the clash between chaos and order, Yone wields the power of both night and dawn. He must rally his brethren, bring peace to the gods… or they will all perish.”
- Release Date: August 12, 2021
Evelynn has some of the hottest skins in League of Legends, and this Coven Evelynn skin raises the bar to a whole new level. Both her base and demon look utterly gorgeous with those dragon-shaped creatures on her back.
- Release Date: July 22, 2021
Sentinel Graves was part of the second part of the Sentinels of Light event, where he joined the crew to help take down Viego, The Ruined King. Sentinel Graves has a similar look and feel as Sentinel Vayne.
Sentinel Graves has two slightly different VFX kits. In the early game, the Black Mist is everywhere and can be seen around his Sentinel of Light energy. However, after reaching level 11, the Black Mist disappears, and his Light shines brightly, uncorrupted.
- Release Date: July 8, 2021
Sentinel Vayne was part of the biggest event of the year, the Sentinels of Light 2021 event. Sentinel Vayne has her iconic red glasses combined with Sentinel-themed white cloak, and her animations feel much smoother as well. Many believe it is way better than Project Vayne and one of the best Vayne skins in League of Legends.
- Release Date: May 27, 2021
PROJECT Mordekaiser has a red and silver hue that perfectly matches Mordekaiser’s model. For this Mordekaiser’s legendary skin, Riot went to a whole new level as based on animation and look PROJECT Mordekaiser has to have the best ultimate among any other legendary skins in League of Legends. And according to many, this might also be one of the best Mordekaiser skins as well.
- Release Date: May 27, 2021
Both the PROJECT Mordekaiser and Renekton skin were released on the same day and patch during the PROJECT 2021 event.
While the PROJECT Mordekaiser skin has a silver and red hue, the PROJECT Renekton skin tone is silver and orange. Just from the splash art alone, it seems Renekton is a cyborg creature who is ready to destroy all of his enemies.
The waking animation on this skin feels different than any other Renekton skin. Moreover, in-game his W animation also looks different. But overall, this is one of the best Renekton skins, for sure.
Space Groove Blitz & Crank
- Release Date: April 1, 2021
Space Groove Blitz & Crank was released during the Space Groove groove event. And here’s the skin bio:
“Blitz and Crank are Cat Planet’s fiercest warriors, and work together seamlessly (mostly) to pilot their mech, Blitzcrank. While Crank believes that he can overcome his lack of rhythm with the help of his exuberant copilot, Blitz is… well… he’s busy dancing to his own beat. Together they plan to take over Dog Planet and claim its sunbeams for themselves.”
Battle Academia Caitlyn
- Release Date: March 18, 2021.

5 Best Legendary Skins in League of Legends
Here are our picks for the five best legendary skins in League of Legends 2022:
5. Corporate Mundo
The pre-reworked Corporate Mundo was OK. But after the rework, Riot completely changed the look and feel of Corporate Mundo. The new waking animation alone is so swaggy that it made it to our top 5 best skin list.
4. PROJECT: Mordekaiser
Like we previously mentioned, PROJECT Mordekaiser has the best ultimate animation out of any skins in League of Legends. Moreover, it also has a great base model and some of the coolest emote. Therefore, it is our 4th best legendary skin in League of Legends.
3. Odyssey Kayn
Just buying the Odyssey Kayn, you will be getting three top-notch skin variants. The voice lines are perfect, and the interactions between Kayn and Rhaast are just priceless in Odyssey Kayn.
2. Nunu & Willump Bot
Nunu received his rework in 2018, and along with his kit update, Riot completely changed the Nunu & Willump Bot skin. The original skin’s voice was pretty great, but it went to a whole new level after the rework. Nunu & Willump Bot clearly has some of the coolest voice lines and interactions – full of memes.
- Dark Cosmic Jhin
Jhin has some of the best skins in League of Legends, but Dark Cosmic Jhin is just perfect. The base model looks great, spells feel super smooth where his ultimate literally has space into it. Many Jhin players think the Dark Cosmic Jhin feels more like an ultimate than a legendary. And according to us, the Dark Cosmic Jhin skin is the best legendary skin in League of Legends.
