Akali, the Fist of Shadow is a melee assassinchampion, and in many ways the quintessential assassin, using high mobility and burst damage to quickly eliminate high-priority targets. While her early game is somewhat lacking, once Akali obtains her ultimate she can dash to an enemy of her choosing and rapidly burst them down with her extreme single-target damage. Once she has finished off her mark, however, Akali must skillfully use the stealth and movement speed granted by her second ability to evade retaliation by the rest of the enemy team, for she is fragile and unsuited for drawn-out fights.

Passive:Akali stores an Essence of Shadow periodically and upon taking down an enemy champion, up to a maximum of 3 stored at once.
Active:Akalidashes to the target enemy, striking through them and dealing magic damage in the process. The strike-through distance increases the closer Akali was to her target before dashing, and is halved against targets affected by Mark of the Assassin.
If ranked, Akali will start with 1 charge, and will respawn with 3 charges of Essence of Shadow.
The closer Akali is to her target, the greater the strike through distance. At point blank range Akali will be placed 200 units behind her target, while shadow dancing at maximum range will only result in a 100 unit strike through. Additionally, if Akali's target is affected by Mark of the Assassin, the strike through distance will be halved (50 at maximum range, 100 at point blank range).
