Riot Games now has two big esports titles in League of Legends and Valorant. While these games don’t have much in common, fans have already begun imaging what Valorant Agents might look like as skins for League‘s Champions, and Riot devs have responded.
Valorant Agents as League of Legends skins
League of Legends currently has 149 Champions, which provides plenty of options for potential Valorant skins. Carmen “Wandakun” Carabello posted three of her ideas for designs on Twitter. The first is a Phoenix skin for Ekko, the second is a Jett skin for Akali, and the third is an Omen skin for Zed.
In the Phoenix skin, Ekko wields a fiery staff along with Phoenix’s apparel. We can also safely assume that he would have fire-based ability animations. The Akali skin is kind of a different take, which puts Akali in Jett’s clothes, but keeps Akali’s face mask and hairstyle. The Omen skin on Zed fits the shadowy assassin well, and it has Omen wielding Zed’s shurikens and blades.

Riot devs saw and responded to the skins
Riot Ziegler, the Game Director of Valorant, noticed the art and responded to the tweet by saying “this is amazing @RiotMeddler let’s talk.” Meddler, the Game Director for League of Legends, also responded saying “We should see what we can figure out.” This suggests that we might be seeing some crossover skins in the future.
Damn, that's pretty legit. We should see what we can figure out.

Crossover skins could be a huge success for both games, and it seems to be something Riot is likely to do at some point. With the positive responses from both game developers, we may be seeing these skins sooner rather than later.
With both rosters constantly expanding, there will be plenty of opportunities for more skins and ideas like this. Which League of Legends Champions do you think would be good fits for Valorant skins?
