Legendary Skins in 2021
Currently, there are 4 Legendary skins that have been released so far in League of Legends 2021, and Sentinel Vayne Skin is scheduled to release in a few days. Leaks also suggest that there will be more skins in the coming months. Regardless, here are all the Legendary skins in LoL 2021: (we will update the list when there’s a new Legendary skin)
- 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 has a silver and orange skin tone. 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 definitely 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.”
- Release Date: March 18, 2021.
Battle Academia Caitlyn skin bio:
“A feared and respected second year, head of the Luminary Club, and class president of Labrys God-Weapon Academy. Caitlyn enrolled herself in the famously troubled school specifically to whip the delinquents there into prime fighting shape, hoping to one day become the greatest battlefield general in history. With her perfect record, she’s not too far off.”

5 Best Legendary Skins in League of Legends
Here are our picks for the five best legendary skins in League of Legends 2021:
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 after the rework, it went to a whole new level. Nunu & Willump Bot clearly has some of the coolest voice lines and interactions – full of memes.
1. 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.
