Palworld has taken the gaming world by storm in the last few weeks.
League of Legends GOAT and four-time world champion Faker recently tried the game.
Funnily enough, Faker customized his Palworld character to resemble his iconic League champion.

League of Legends is an extremely competitive MOBA that requires one to constantly communicate and think about the next moves. Players usually tend to go on overdrive while grinding in ranked. This prompts them to play other casual games on the side and this includes even League of Legends pros, who are the best in the business. Let's be honest, stepping away from League of Legends can be a breath of fresh air sometimes.

Lee “Faker” Sang-Hyeok, who is arguably the best League of Legends player in the world, has often streamed variety games live including Jump King, Valorant, and Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy. Very recently, the four-time Worlds champion played Palworld with his teammates.

Funnily enough, Faker customized his Palworld character to resemble his iconic League champion.

Faker's Palworld Character Is Literally Ryze!

While Faker took an apparent break from playing League of Legends on stream, he made it very clear that he can't stop thinking about the game even while playing other titles. As he embarked on his Palworld journey, Faker had to first create his character.

To everyone's surprise, Faker customized his character to look like Ryze from League of Legends.

The top comment on the Reddit post hilariously reads, "Walter finally became one with his product," a reference to the iconic Breaking Bad TV series. Another comment joked, "The Ryzenberg. The Ryzenberg is Real."

If you have been following Faker and League of Legends esports for quite some time now, you would know that the T1 mid-laner has always had an affinity for Ryze. After winning Worlds with the then SK Telecom T1 (SKT T1) in 2015, Faker picked Ryze as his Worlds skin. However, he rarely uses it.

In League of Legends, often fans associate Faker and the Rune Mage since he has always continued to be dominant on the champion despite the differing meta. Some even state that he's the reason why Ryze is always nerfed by Riot and rarely buffed.

If you are new to Palworld, know that characters are the people and/or various individuals that players can meet while playing the game. Characters or these avatars can join together to form Guilds while exploring the Palpagos Island.

After loading into a world for the first time, you will be able to customize your unique character. You can choose from different hairstyles, face shapes, skin tones, and eyes, and there are even sliders that let you adjust body shape and voice options.
