A champion summoned unit (often referred to as a 'pet') is a game character, similar to a minion, monster or champion, that is spawned into the game by a champion.
The following units are classified as "decoys" and are considered champions in almost all respects (such as tower priority, valid targets, etc.), except that their damage is still credited to their owner (and so will attract tower aggro as with any champion damage). Interactions with other abilities/runes/items are case by case. For example:
