Riot August is the lead champion designer for League of Legends.
He has designed more than ten champions to date and most of these champions have very unique ability kits.
Here's a list of champions designed by Riot August.

League of Legends, Riot Games' flagship title, has over 160 champions and the latest one who will soon be entering the Summoner's Rift is Briar. This hangry jungler has been the talk of the town ever since her first look got leaked, and now with Riot Games releasing her trailer and her ability kit, players are excited to test her out.

After just taking a glance at Briar's abilities, one can tell who's creation she is. With a quirky kit with spells such as her W: Blood Frenzy/ Snack Attack, it could only be Riot Games’ lead champion designer August "August" Browning.

After releasing iconic champions with unique spells, Riot August is a crowd favorite and here is a list of champions that he has designed.

All Champions Designed by Riot August So Far

Riot August is considered one of the most influential and comical members of the League of Legends team. He is extremely active on social media and often reacts to and engages with the community firsthand. He is known for creating "balanced" champions that often need to be nerfed numerous times.

Here's a list of champions that Riot August has designed:

  • Vi, the Piltover Enforcer

  • Jinx, the Loose Cannon

  • Gnar, the Missing Link

  • Ekko, the Boy Who Shattered Time

  • Jhin, the Virtuoso

  • Senna, the Redeemer

  • Viego, the Ruined King

  • Zeri, the Spark of Zaun

  • Bel'Veth, the Empress of the Void

  • Briar, the Restrained Hunger

Most of these champions have complex and unique abilities that make them stand out. Most notably, Jhin is the champion that brought a lot of praise to Riot August.

Interestingly, one of the most important aspects of the champions created by Riot August are their weapons. Almost all of his champions are made from thinking of some of these tools already existing in reality or fiction adapted to League of Legends, according to

Jinx is a champion who switches between two guns: her minigun and her rocket launcher. Ekko has the ability to morph and play with time within League of Legends and likewise, Gnar also changes form and his abilities change accordingly.

Jhin is a prominent attack damage carry (ADC) in League of Legends and is considered one of the most fun champions to play. His whole persona and kit is woven around the number "4". He uses four bullets, his ultimate has four charges, and his champion price is also 4444 Blue Essence.

The community joked a lot about how strong and one-sided Viego's kit was when the champion was released. There was a point where Viego was guaranteed multi-kills regardless of the situation. Likewise, one of his most recent creations, Zeri, underwent numerous nerfs so that she is balanced both in pro play and pubs.

With Briar being Riot August's champion, players can expect to see a plethora of memes from the dev himself and it would also be interesting to see how many nerfs she needs before she fits into the meta.
