When it comes to video games, Nintendo is sometimes excluded from the same conversations as Sony or Microsoft. On the bright side, it only spurred them to focus on building winning franchises and gaming mascots, turning them into one of the biggest first-party developers in the business.

Nintendo is never afraid to embrace its weirdest impulses, and this has resulted in some particularly bizarre boss battles on their game consoles, some of which are hard to believe are actually real. It was because of this that they created a voracious fandom that followed them through eclectic console experiences.

ten Paper Mario: The Origami King turns office stationery into killer enemies

The paper mario has become one of Nintendo’s weirdest entities, and seven titles have been released since its Nintendo 64 debut in 2000. paper mario newest title for the Switch, The king of origami, is a satisfying return to form for the series. However, the origami aesthetic results in some of the most surreal boss battles in the franchise.

The king of origami embraces an evil stationery theme, where many of the game’s toughest fights are against crayons, rubber bands, a hole punch, scissors, or a stapler. All of these desktop tools make for some bizarre fights, but Mario’s feud with a giant tape dispenser is by far the most unusual.

9 Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle introduces a terrifying new hybrid creature

It’s always exciting whenever Nintendo allows its more established characters to indulge in dumber experiments. The Rabbids branch of the Rayman was one of Nintendo’s weirdest series. Inexplicably, the chaotic world of Rabbids intersects with the Mushroom Kingdom in a turn-based tactical shooter.

Mario Kingdom Battle + Rabbids gets plenty of mileage from disturbing Rabbid variations of classic Mushroom Kingdom residents. In a few rare cases, this results in an increased boss battle, such as the one with Rabbid Kong. This Donkey Kong and Rabbid hybrid is hard to accept and a decidedly weirder variation than something like Dry Bowser.

8 The legend of the mystical ninja kashiwagi is a giant Kabuki robot battle

The Legend of the mystical ninja series has a Japanese sense of humor which the localizations thankfully do their best to preserve. The SuperNintendo mystical ninja the entries are all weird, but the franchise’s big Nintendo 64 upgrade ticks a high note.

RELATED: 10 Video Game Bosses Tougher Than The Final Boss

mystical ninja 64 is one of the best 3D action-adventure platformers on the console, and it rocks with several larger-than-life boss battles that look to the giant robot and kaiju genres for inspiration. Goemon fights in a giant mech, Impact, as he takes down other colossal threats. Kashiwagi looks like a kabuki performer, which only accentuates the bizarre nature of Mystical ninja.

seven No More Heroes Skilled Illusionist Harvey Moiseiwitsch Volodarski Turns The Tables On Travis Touchdown

The more heroes franchise is an over-the-top exercise in violence that debuted on the Wii and continues to build a special relationship with Nintendo. more heroes further reflects on its over-the-top boss fights, which are even the focus of some entries in the series.

There’s a case to be made for how each more heroes boss could qualify here, but Harvey Moiseiwitsch Volodarski is particularly odd. The magician pushes Travis out of his comfort zone with teleportation tactics, destructive homing doves, and clever stylistic tricks like flipping the screen upside down with his magic.

6 Super Mario RPG’s killer wedding cake causes more than indigestion

Super Mario RPG is a great combination of Nintendo Super Mario characters and environments with the pristine RPG gameplay that Square is known for. Super Mario RPG covers many classic Mushroom Kingdom antagonists as well as some intimidating new faces. A disastrous marriage turns a gigantic cake into a self-aware sentinel.

Bundt is really unusual, especially since he poses a legitimate challenge and has a fair amount of HP. It’s a particularly devastating blow to be defeated by a pastry so early in the RPG adventure. Any difficulty against Bundt stings even more after the fight ends abruptly, with Booster’s appetite getting the better of him.

5 Conker’s Bad Fur Day’s The Great Mighty Poo Tests Audience Limits

Rare had a reputation for building family franchises, which made it a perfect fit for Nintendo’s values. It’s all thrown out the window with Conker’s Bad Fur Day, one of the few titles to receive an M-Rating on the Nintendo 64. Conker’s Bad Fur Day embraces controversy with levels and characters filled with intense violence, sexual humor, and rude characters.

RELATED: 10 Tough Bosses That Can End A Game Early

One of the most ridiculous examples of this is the boss, The Great Mighty Poo, a sentient force of excrement who engages in a musical showdown with Conker until he’s hit with enough toilet paper. He’s a weird boss, especially for a Nintendo game.

4 Big John from Viewtiful Joe 2 is a giant fire-breathing lizard

Originally finding life on the Gamecube, Capcom stylized Joe seeing it The beat-’em-up action series is long overdue for a sequel or reboot. The Joe seeing it the games turn to Hollywood for a devious, self-aware narrative that combines superpowers with spectacular stunts. Viewtiful Joe 2 is bigger and better in every way, including its boss fights.

Big John becomes a recurring nuisance throughout the sequel, and each feud against him grows more ridiculous. Big John is a rowdy fire-breathing dinosaur that goes the extra mile and packs explosive firepower. Big John takes the “bear with a chainsaw” idea and pushes it to incredible proportions.

3 EarthBound’s Giygas is an existential threat that forces the player to consider big ideas

The Mother trilogy is arguably one of the toughest and most ambitious RPG franchises to appear on Nintendo hardware. The Super Nintendos Earthbound received a healthy North American push, and the series’ mid-entry is in some ways the weirdest. The game’s final fight is against Giygas, a cryptic creature that defies belief.

Giygas’ nebulous nature makes for a confusing encounter, but the way the player defeats him involves praying to the world for help. It’s an odd tactic, though it beautifully amplifies the battle of good versus evil that’s at stake.

2 Super Mario World 2’s Prince Froggy Fight puts the player in the belly of the beast

the original Super Mario World helped turn the Super Nintendo into a 16-bit success story, and the game’s sequel, Yoshi’s Island, is somehow even better. Baby Mario’s mechanic isn’t for everyone, but it takes the standard platforming formula forward in undeniable ways. There’s a lot of creativity on display when it comes to the sequel’s boss fights.

Prince Froggy initially appears to be an average amphibian, only for Yoshi and Baby Mario to be consumed by the creature and fight the boss battle from its womb. It’s an unusual change of pace that makes Prince Froggy’s uvula Yoshi’s ultimate target.

1 Star Fox’s Galactic Slot Is The Weirdest Anachronism

the original star fox for the Super Nintendo is a groundbreaking experience that pushes console hardware to its limits. the original star fox is a quaint on-rails shooter that embraces its harsh polygonal visuals. Many star fox the bosses feel like random alien dangers, but none can compete with the game’s gigantic slot machine.

This obstacle bombards the player with enemy ships until they score a triple seven on this outdated machine. One would think that a game called star fox and features anthropomorphic animal assault fighters that might not shock its audience, but no one expects or understands the weirdness of the slot.

This is Hasbro's Megazord

Another day, another Mighty Morphin‘merchandise push. Power Rangers will probably never escape the shadow of his very first iterationespecially when it comes to toys, but Hasbro’s latest attempt to give fans something it’s been trying to do for a while: a classic Megazord toy that deserves to be the heart of a Rangers fan’s collection .

The “Ascension Zord Project” Dino Megazord is the first in a new line from Hasbro to attempt a more premium riff on its Power Rangers mechanical toys. There have been many attempts to bring a more modern version of the original Megazord to large-scale toys in recent years, from Hasbro’s more economical combiner to Nostalgia-charged Legacy Megazord a few years ago – recreating the iconic original toy, right down to the packaging – or even Flame Toys coming soon a more stylized version of the giant robot. But the ZAP Dino Megazord wants to strike a balance between something that looks more substantial and modern than typical Zord figures (largely limited by needing to be essentially five separate articulated robot figures as well as the whole Zord combined), while not as wallet-destroying as some premiums.

At $165, it’s still quite pricey, but what you get is mostly in that “just” window of feeling that’s worth it. Measuring just under 12″ tall when fully combined, the ZAP Megazord is bigand from the packaging to the ability to open the ports on each individual Zord to reveal a small cockpit with each Ranger molded inside (alas, unpainted – which, like the also included incredibly tiny team scale figures, feels a little weird for a “premium” toy, everything is covered in detail to make the mech look like his classic brightly colored self from afar, but more modernized and sleek the closer you get to her.

Image for article titled Hasbro's new take on the Power Rangers Megazord is big, chunky and above all brilliant

Photo: io9/Gizmodo

Unlike many older Megazords, especially those that can break down into individual mechs, the ZAP Megazord’s sleekness comes through in the surprising amount of articulation it has in its combined form. You won’t get mad poses as a dedicated figure of the Megazord might, given the nature of its components limiting what you can do, but there are enough points of articulation that aren’t so apparent when looking at the individual Zords that you can in achieve fun action poses that emphasize the giant robot as a heavy beast (it’s all plastic, so it’s not too bulky), rather than being particularly light on its animal-robot feet -prehistoric.

That said, all is not perfect in the toy. The ability to combine the Zords is quite a tall order, even with included instructions in the vein of those from Hasbro. Transformers guides. The sheer size of the Megazord, combined with very stiff out-of-the-box articulation points, more often than not leaves you wondering if you might break something as you put it together – a problem you don’t want for something that costs $165 (even then I had some issues with parts jumping out if you look at them the wrong way, especially Kimberly’s Pterodactyl Zord on the chest). And even then, some of those points of articulation don’t quite fit under the mass of the Zords, leading to some shaky moments, especially in the optional Tank form where you can combine the Zords into, which is as bad as it gets at showing off and as much as it’s done in the past on Megazord toys.

There’s also the weird halfway point between offering something that feels premium and yet isn’t. enough quite premium. There’s a lot of detail and paint on the finished product, including a particularly nice chrome plating on the Megazord’s included sword, but there’s also plenty of closer unwashed detail. The lack of metal parts or more chrome plating like the sword keeps the Dino Megazord’s classic color scheme intact, but it also looks cheaper when the Zord is mostly flat plastic. Maybe appropriate for something that was just a man in a costume on the show, but for something marketed as a high-end “Ascension” on older Megazord toys, it doesn’t seem like it’s worth the asking price surface.

But if you are undecided, Rangers fans, click to see more photos of the Zord Ascension Project Dino Megazord in action – it should be available next month, and is in pre-order from Hasbro now.

5 Neon Genesis Evangelion begins with a brutal introduction to its world

Cartoon audiences have become so savvy that there are a growing number of shows that use genre staples as a way to deconstruct deeper issues. The colorful genre of magical girls is ripe territory for this kind of introspective subversion and Puella Magi Madoka Magica became the prime example.

The premiere of Puella Magi Madoka Magicaruns like a standard magical girl series with lots of low-stakes nonsense, but a creeping dread hangs over everyone’s actions. The full scope of the series’ horrors is still unclear, but the first episode still does a significant job of breaking the illusion and confusing audiences as to what they can trust.


3 Devilman Crybaby turns into a violent visual explosion

Go Nagai is a storytelling visionary who is responsible for several iconic franchises, but his transformative body horror saga, evil man, remains a popular title for the adaptation. Masaaki Yuasa’s modern update to the Nagai classic, crybaby devilmancovers the same tragic story as the original once an internal tussle begins in Akira over what to do with his newfound strength.

The crybaby devilman pilot is such a memorable start to the series because of the blood-soaked neon massacre that becomes its centerpiece. It’s a shocking display of visuals that becomes the perfect distillation of what crybaby devilman represented.


2 Elfen Lied begins in darkness and prepares the series for sadness

There is no shortage of anime series that intentionally create nihilistic worlds that drag the viewer into the depths of despair. elf lied is 14 episodes that become a heartbreaking meditation on abuse. It’s a series about breaking others down for their differences and fearing the worst instead of trusting the best.

There are certainly other versions of elf lied it could have existed where Lucy’s story is sanitized and Kota is actually able to build a happy ending for her. Instead, Lucy’s story is hopeless and this is reinforced in the opening moments of her moody pilot.


1 Pop Team Epic claims to be a totally different show for part of its premiere

Pop Team Epic is the closest anime to meme culture brought to life. The surreal series offers bite-sized comedic absurdism that weaves its two chaotic characters into mainstream pop culture. Pop Team Epic it always feels like he’s laughing at the audience and ready to reveal an unexpected, self-aware punchline.

Pop Team Epic’s the first episode plays into this energy with a long joke where the anime begins with “Hoshiiro Girldrop”, a fictional series of shojo idols that airs an open and title sequence before Pop Team Epic’s the characters tear it down and take over the programming. The “Hoshiiro Girldrop” content becomes a running joke in the series.

The mecha genre is one of the most famous in anime. Watching two giant robots fight each other is thrilling. Some mecha series are even considered classics. Mecha over the decades has proven to be a timeless series. Unfortunately, some have trouble sticking the landing in the final minutes.



RELATED: 10 Best Underrated Mecha Anime Every Fan Should Watch

Some mecha series start out great, but as the show progresses, they seem to go astray. Some shows come to the end and decide to kill everyone. Others go in a direction that makes no sense. Either way, mecha series don’t always end the way audiences hope.

9 Space Warrior Baldios ends in massive flooding

Baldios, space warrior was a 1980 anime that focused on changes in the environment. Scientists had found a way to cure the planet of its environmental problems, but a military enthusiast blamed the scientists for the death of the planet’s leader. The series itself resembles the mech dime-a-dozen anime of the era, although it had great action.

The series ends with Gattler, the antagonist, unleashing a huge tsunami. This triggers massive floods and wipes out almost all of humanity. The hero should have done something about it all, but the protagonist Marin sits idly by and watches the destruction of Earth.

8 Guren Lagann disappointed almost everyone

gurren lagann was one of the most popular mecha anime of the 2000s. It certainly caught fans’ attention with its over-the-top action and never say die attitude. The series was created to have a happy ending, but the writers had other plans.

At the very end, humanity revives on the surface. Simon, however, is a random homeless man who roams the streets. After the sudden disappearance of Princess Nia, Simon has just left Team Gurren and is now wandering aimlessly. Talk about a disappointment. The hero of the story doesn’t even get a share of the glory.


seven Gundam 0080 War In The Pocket is a depressing war story

Mobile Suit Gundam is no stranger to telling stories about the horrors of war. Creators like Yoshiyuki Tomino create stories that prove war is a horrible thing that no one should have to go through. Next Char CounterattackSunrise developed an OVA that told a personal story about a boy and his encounter with war.

RELATED: 10 Anime Series Too Sad To Watch Twice

war in the pocket is a massively depressing story that, while poignant, is not for the faint of heart. Protagonist Al changes from a carefree child going about his daily business to a saddened boy who has lost someone dear to him. Perhaps the saddest Christmas story ever told, war in the pocket shows viewers that Zeon pilots are just as human as the Gundam Meisters.


6 Aldnoah Zero has one of the dumbest endings in recent memory

Zero Aldnoah was a two-season anime about a war between Earth and an alien race. Plotted by General Urobuchi, Aldnoah takes some dark turns despite being mostly a fun mecha anime, if a bit generic at times. Things had been looking up for the show – or at least until the final two episodes.

Slaine, the main antagonist, finally takes the downfall that had been teased all along. However, the protagonist Inaho allowed him to live. Then, stupid decision after stupid decision by the writers in the final minutes led audiences to believe there was no point in the show. The ending just didn’t live up to the rest.


5 Code Geass had a bad ending for many of its central cast

Code Geass was one of the most popular anime of the 2000s. Its “Death threat meets Gundam“a kind of hodgepodge and the use of an anti-hero protagonist makes Code Geass one of the most gripping and cerebral shows of its time. The show had some momentum on its side in the final few episodes, but eventually slipped and fell in its final minutes.

Protagonist Lelouch is killed by Suzaku and events quickly unfold and lead to peace for Area 11. The characters are shown to have left life on the battlefield, but it’s the final seconds of the series that have shocked the fans. CC is seen relaxing and turns away from the camera and calls someone “Lelouch”. It made the whole finale totally pointless.


4 Macross pretty much ends in a stalemate for both sides

Macross Super Dimensional Fortress was a 1980s show that was a worldwide hit. Of course, it was part of Robotech series in the United States, but it still attracted legions of fans in the 80s. The battlefield love story touched so many people.

RELATED: 8 Mecha Anime Every Anime Fan Should Watch At Least Once

Unfortunately, MacrossThe ending is a disappointment. Earth and the forces of Zentradi have nearly annihilated. The peace talks only happened because both sides were so devastated. The series kind of ended with a whimper as Earth and the Zentradi learned to live together.


3 Mazinger Z ends with humanity on the brink of destruction

Mazinger-Z was a classic mecha show created by anime legend Go Nagai. This helped establish the Super Robot genre as well as popularize mecha well into the 1980s. Kouji Kabuto is one of the main protagonists of mecha and his show was so gory it was awesome.

The ending was a bit disappointing, however. Kouji killed Dr. Hell, but one of his other enemies, the Mykene Empire, destroyed a bunch of big cities afterward. They destroyed several robots, including Mazinger-Z. In the following Great Mazingerit was revealed that Dr. Hell had survived, rendering the entire original series utterly useless.


2 Neon Genesis Evangelion got deconstructed in a corner

Neon Genesis Evangelion is a divisive anime. Some people love its sci-fi-inspired deconstruction and hail it as a hallmark of postmodernism. Others see it as rubbish that has no real meaning. In both cases, evangelization is one of the most popular mecha anime out there. Around episode 18 or so, fans could tell the series is off the rails.

Everything looked dark and there seemed to be no signs of hope for the heroes. Then, the last two episodes arrived. The last two episodes are nothing more than a psychoanalysis of the characters. On top of that, the animation budget was nearly exhausted, so the visuals were less than appealing. The series was found to be useless and was only corrected at the Rebuild movies.


1 Zeta Gundam proved Tomino’s reputation

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam was the direct sequel to Mobile Suit Gundam. It continued the Universal Century timeline conflict and had a great action. Kamille is a memorable protagonist and a brilliant pilot. It’s just a shame he ended up in the end.

Towards the end of Zeta, Kamille loses almost all of her relatives during the war. As a result, he breaks down and loses sight of what he was trying to accomplish. Zeon, the villains of Mobile Suit Gundam, becomes a formidable nation again. It signifies the fate of the Earth.

Ring of Elden sold 16.6 million copies by the end of June. The game took the world by storm when it was released in February. It has shown unusually high stamina for a single-player title and continues to enjoy healthy player counts.

Elden Ring is on track to be the best-selling game of 2022

Bandai Namco’s financial results were released yesterday and show just how successful Elden Ring continues to be for the company’s video game sales. The game has contributed to a 55% increase in year-over-year profits, which only continues to rise as more and more copies are sold.

Despite the good news, Bandai Namco remains realistic. The company forecasts an overall profit decline of 24.5% for the fiscal year due to a lack of other big game releases. This is no surprise as game sales are down globally due to economic instability and other factors.

Unfortunately, Bandai Namco’s financial report did not include any details about the company’s future plans. We know that FromSoftware has several games in development, including one that is almost complete, and the Elden Ring DLC ​​is likely coming soon. However, no details are yet available regarding these projects.

Opinion: FromSoftware’s next title should be Armored Core 6

Jason writes: Most people know FromSoftware from its Souls games, but it previously developed a more diverse line of games. Among them was the Armored Core series, which is about as far as you can get from Elden Ring when it comes to subject matter. I wish FromSoftware would go back to their roots and create a mecha game to fill the void in my heart.

There hasn’t been a decent mecha game since the release of Gundam Breaker 3, and FromSoftware has the chance to reboot the genre. It will also prevent the studio from being branded as a developer that only makes Souls games.

In other news, Embracer has purchased Lord of the Rings, and Dead Island 2’s release date may have been revealed.

When magic and technology can alter the fates of individuals, their loyalties and identities become blurred, adding another layer of complexity to personal and political relationships. An overconfident megalomaniac, Emperor Dornkirk, manipulates Gaea, Escaflowne’s Visionof the world, to obtain his idea of ​​utopia by any means, which caused conflicts all over the world. Although this conflict is on a large scale, its main messages and motivations shine through two siblings: Van and Folken Fanel and Allen and Celena Schezar.


Folken Fanel leads Emperor Dornkirk’s industrial Zaibach empire while the elite troops are led by a manipulated and controlled Celena Schezar. Celena is experimented with becoming a super soldier, losing her identity and emerging with a different, maniacal male personality: Dilandau Albatau. Celena’s lost identity and Folken’s loss of humanity epitomize the negative aspects of Dornkirk’s utopia.

RELATED: Spice and Wolf Featured Economics Instead of Stereotypical Fantasy

The Fanel brothers are driving forces and symbols for opposing sides in the conflict, with Van as a symbol of hope or potential freedom and Folken as a symbol of despair and colonialism. When Van realizes that his brother is alive and has been a guiding force within Zaibach, the Empire that demolished their homeland of Fanalia, it makes the conflict extremely personal. Their story turns to tragedy as Folken’s motives are revealed.


Like most members of the Zaibach Empire, Folken found himself convinced of Dornkirk’s vision for utopia after being saved by the science of the Empire. Folken is endowed with a prosthetic arm which comes to symbolize his initial corruption and his separation from the traditional values ​​of his land. Folken’s initially adversarial role gives way to a fittingly brotherly stance as he awakens to Dornkirk’s corrupt methods of obtaining utopia.

RELATED: Grimgar of Fantasy Ash is Still One of Isekai’s Best Anime

Folken’s attempts to manipulate fate with Dornkirk shortened his lifespan and blackened his wings. When Van realizes his brother’s condition, it motivates him to stop Dornkirk’s machinations. Van and Folken’s rivalry stemmed from different perspectives. However, as their family ties reignite, they rediscover their shared quest for a peaceful world, allowing them to push beyond their limits and defeat a much greater adversary.


Brother Schezar’s situation is even more complicated than that of the Fanels. Allen’s sister is assumed to have been dead for years, only to be revealed to be alive but living as a different person, Dilandau Albatau. Zaibach altered his identity and appearance to create a super soldier who would lead a high-tech mech in Dornkirk’s war.

RELATED: Sailor Moon’s Starlights Embody Trans, Non-Binary Fantasy

Dilandau is a terrifying example of Dornkirk’s alteration experiments. Dilandau and Celena exist as separate beings in a shared body, both struggling to retain their sense of identity and self. However, human experimentation with fate altered Celena to the extent that the other entity within her became intense rivals with her brother Allen.


The rivalry between Allen and Dilandau is forged with chivalry and honor as Allen despises Dilandau’s methods. Dilandau’s deep-rooted fear of being alone leads to stealthy or underhanded tactics to keep him and his crew alive. The experiences that shattered Celena’s identity leave her alternate personality incomplete and in tatters.

RELATED: My Isekai Life Episode 3: Yuji Is Saitama’s Fantasy Version of One-Punch Man

After a severe loss, Dilandau returns to Celena and reunites with Allen at an old family estate. Allen’s commitments change when he realizes the truth about Celena and Dilandau. Diladau’s identity fades in the final battle after Celena and Dilandau’s guardian sacrifices himself to save their lives. Allen later protects a reborn Celena from Van, who is unaware of Dilandau’s complex identity.


As these two sibling rivalries dissolve, Zaibach’s hold on Gaea dissipates. Folken and Celena’s connection to their true selves or siblings can overcome Dornkirk’s manipulations. Sibling rivalry has become a central part of EscaflowneThe war that further solidified Van and Allen’s belief in tearing down the Zaibach Empire. Escaflowne beautifully establishes the potential for a family to defeat an internal or external adversary, even when family members start on opposite sides of a conflict.

Which champion skins received the most love in H1 2022 from the Inven community?

A champion skin in League of Legends has many different meanings. Not only is it an aesthetic aspect of the game that makes players see champions in a different light, but it also provides a storyline based on skinline, against other champions who may not have had previous relationships in the tradition. In addition, rare skins also have collectible value.

So what skins released in the first half of 2022 received [from January to June] most loved by gamers? We decided to compile the list of top 5 skins that Inven KR community members have rated the highest in the Inven KR skin gallery. Please note that there were skins that had the same score; in such cases, the skin with more community members voted on it was chosen.


5th place: EDG Aphelios

Worlds skins are made to commemorate the team that wins Worlds each year. After Edward Gaming won Worlds in 2021, Riot released EDG Skins to celebrate their victory in 2022. Among Worlds skins, EDG Skins were praised for their polished quality and the colors used to craft them.

Among them, EDG Aphelios was ranked the highest among Aphelios skins. Created for EDG’s bot laner, Park “Viper” Do-hyeon, users can even find Viper’s signature in the splash art.

As a champion, Aphelios has that mystical theme going for him, and EDG Aphelios elevates such a theme to the next level. In terms of how he functions as a champion, he has a very unique mechanic on how he plays, so he has a bit of a ceiling. However, some users in the Inven KR community said they would buy this champion even if they don’t know how to play it.

Still worth buying even if you can’t play Aphelios? The quality is top notch among all the skins in the world

4th place: Crystal Rose Janna

The Crystal Rose/Withered Rose skinline made an appearance in 2021. The champions who received skins from this skinline this year were centered around the new champions. Zeri’s release skin was Withered Rose Zeri, and Akshan also received a Crystal Rose skin.

However, the real gem of the recent Crystal/Withered Rose line of skins was Crystal Rose Janna. With a white and cyan color theme, Janna is almost depicted as a fairy, especially because of her pointy ears. From its beautiful splash art to its high quality gameplay model, this skin beat out Star Guardian Janna and Bewitched Janna to be the highest rated Janna skin in the Inven KR community.

The Crystal/Withered Rose all showed decent to excellent quality of play. The skinline will always make players think, “Which champion will be next?”

In terms of quality in the Rose skin line, Janna is definitely on top

3rd place: High Noon Samira

It’s been many years since the first High Noon skin was released [High Noon Twisted Fate in 2011], but it hasn’t been long since he became a skinline. The quality of these skins has improved a lot over the past few years as it really captures the Wild West theme.

Among them, High Noon Samira was very well received by the Inven KR community. Since she’s already wielding a gun like the ones you see in those old Wild West movies, there were those who were highly anticipating Samira’s collaboration with the High Noon skinline even before the skin was announced.

The orange and black visual aspect of the skill effects that makes her look like she’s burning everything is top notch. Besides that, the exorcist look which adds more appeal, as well as the lore of the skin where she opposes the machina demon, High Noon Mordekaiser, this skin is definitely one of the best Epic skin releases from 2022.

The High Noon series is made for Samira!

2nd place: Battle Bunny Miss Fortune

Source: SkinSpotlights

In one of the skinlines released in 2022, the Anima Squad skinline was highly anticipated even before its release due to the way the mecha aspects and cute animal aesthetics were combined.

However, not all Anima Squad skins have been well received. When it came to Battle Wolf Sylas and Battle Bat Vayne, users said the aesthetic was a bit too much, and when it came to Battle Bunny Prime Riven, many said the skin didn’t live up to its specs. expectations.

However, Battle Bunny Miss Fortune was different. From its walking animation to the unique movement jumping animation, the overall quality of the skin lives up to expectations of a legendary skin. It’s safe to say that his skin is the best in the Anima team skin line.

This is what a legendary skin should look like!
The quality of Battle Bunny Miss Fortune is much higher than expected

1st place: Ashen Knight Pyke

According to the Inven KR community, the #1 skin for H1 2022 was “Ashen Knight Pyke”. Following the overhaul of the gem and prestige point system within League of Legends, this skin is the first Mythic Essence skin that Riot Games has released. For those who don’t know what Mythic Essence is, it’s the currency that replaced Gems and is used to buy Hextech and Prestige skins.

Ashen Knight Pyke was not only the first skin that can only be purchased with Mythic Essence, it was also only available for a short time. Naturally, this caught the attention of many people. The quality of the skin in the game was outstanding, and it was particularly appreciated for the translucent, ghostly vibe it had. Some users even praised that the skin looks like something straight out of the “Dark Souls” series.

From rarity to exceptional skin quality, Ashen Knight Pyke has quickly risen to the top of the skin that all Pyke players must have. The Inven KR community received the highest rating among all Pyke skins, beating other high-quality skins such as Project: Pyke and PsyOps Pyke.

Straight out of ‘Dark Souls’? From rarity to exceptional quality, Ashen Knight has been highly rated
