11. Kai’Sa

Some champions just have kits that are so overloaded they feel unfair to play against. Kai’Sa, the girl from the Void who gets a shield and dash on her ult, has invisibility and percent missing health damage, AoE damage, and can build a Zhonya’s Hourglass to keep herself perfectly safe, fits that bill. But sure, she’s short-ranged so it all balances out.

12. Azir

On the one hand, you have to respect someone who has the time, dedication, and patience to learn a champion this complicated who is also only good for about a month out of every year before he’s nerfed back to hell. But on the other hand, screw this guy who can poke you from an impossible range, wall you off, and “nope” his way out of any gank.

13. Rumble

Playing against Rumble as a melee top laner is an absolute nightmare. You get shoved in easily, he slows you with his harpoons, and if you ever try and all-in him he can just pop a shield and run away laughing his little Yordle butt. The worst part, though, is that even if you do manage to beat him in lane, he can still always walk to a team fight, drop his ult, and completely screw your team.

14. Blitzcrank

There might not be a champion in the game who more fundamentally alters the way you have to play the lane than Blitzcrank. The difference in the lane when he has his hook up or down is massive and your positioning needs to be flawless when it’s up. Like Rumble, even if you do your part, his kit is so powerful that all it takes is for him to land one clutch grab in a late game scenario and Blitzcrank can completely swing the game away from your team.

15. Fizz

I know fish are supposed to be slippery but dear god this guy has two dashes including one that makes him untargetable. That one skill, his Playful Trickster, is more frustrating with how it can dodge just about anything in any champion’s kit that most champions as a whole.

16. Shaco

I hate him, I hate him, I hate him, I hate him. He just shows up, out of nowhere, with enough damage from the start of the game to nuke any player, plus he has the annoying factor (the Shaco Syndrome) where if he’s on the other team he’ll snowball incredibly hard while also making your teammates rage at you for not doing enough to counter him. There are stronger junglers to face but none may be as fear-inducing as Shaco.

17. Jayce

Whose bright idea was it to make a champion that has a dash and knock-back on his kit but also give him a ranged form with a massive AoE nuke?? I want names Riot!!

18. Lulu

Oh hi, there mister assassin. I see you want to try and kill my carry. Well don’t mind me, I’m just going to throw three thousand shields onto him that you couldn’t cut through with a lightsaber. Just be glad it’s not four years ago when I could go top or mid lane and somehow out-poke and out-push everyone else.

19. Jinx

It’s not that her kit is annoying, it’s just that it’s so simple to execute. When Jinx is strong, she will literally just melt enemy teams with her AoE damage, get her stupid speed-ups, and run away to safety. She can run over games at low elo and no one respects this.

20. Leblanc

Like Fizz, but with the added “bonus” that she can use her dash to both get in and then get out. Oh, and she also has a root because why shouldn’t an assassin who can take you from 100 to 0 have CC in her kit? If you weren’t around for the times when she also had a silence in her kit, consider yourself lucky that you didn’t have to endure those dark times.
