Trivia

  • X FirstAppearance

    PoolPartyPoster
    Jinx's arm and feet in the foreground
    Jinx was designed by RiotTeaTime, Gypsylord and Ransom. [3]
  • Jinx is voiced by Sarah Anne Williams.
  • Prior to her reveal, Ransom described Jinx as having a unique personality and a hair color shared by only  one other champion.
  • Jinx was inspired by the Joker, Gollum, and Helena Bonham Carter. This was noted here by one of her concept and splash artists, RiotTeaTime.
  • The first reference to Jinx's name was in a post made by CertainlyT about the next champion, "No (tm)? You've jinxed us."[4]
  • Jinx made her first appearance in the Pool Party Graves splash art, and her second appearance in the Pool Party Poster.
X's Weapon
Jinx's weapon
  • On September 20th, Jinx committed an act of vandalism on Vi's champion page on the League of Legends website. She signed it with "X wuz here".[5]
  • The wanted poster in Jinx's reveal lists her crimes as: murder, unprovoked assault, disturbing the peace, public indecency, murder again, unauthorized property re-coloration, unflattering impersonation of an officer, reckless hexplosive detonation, destruction of the peace, really petty larceny, exorbitant weapon size, some more murders, inciting mass hysteria, making fun of the peace, aggravated jaywalking and forging of official wanted posters.
  • Her dance animation is a reference to Jake the Dog from the television series Adventure Time. A side by side comparison can be seen here
  • Interestingly, VI, X and C are all Roman numerals. This has caused some players to speculate that they refer to a rank structure or nicknames in Vi's old gang. C is a character described in Caitlyn's lore, her arch-nemesis.
    • Though a coincidence, the Roman numeral CXVI represents 116; Jinx is the 116th champion. The only other properly-formed numeral that can be made using C, X, and VI, is XCVI (96).
  • The Official League of Legends site confirms that Jinx is from Zaun.
  • There is an in-game event whenever Jinx is against  Vi and/or  Caitlyn, called Catch me if you can!
  • Jinx can be seen in Officer Vi's splash art in the middle of a giant donut in the background.
  • Jinx, like many champions, has had her portrait modified so that it is more clear/defined on the in-game map.
  • When Jinx's ultimate explodes a smiley face appears in the blast radius, lasting for a second.
  • Jinx is the first champion to have a laugh animation that automatically loops.
  • Jinx's minigun, Pow-Pow, wears a small pair of bunny ears which are visible near her right arm.
  • When Jinx dies, her hair forms a heart.
  • Jinx is similiar to Harley Quinn, from comic book hero the Batman.

Quotes

  • Jinx's quote "Say hello to my friends of varying sizes!" is a parody of Tony Montana's infamous quote from the movie Scarface.
    • This quote is also a double entendre, as she is both referring to the varying sizes of her "friends" and the fact that each of her guns has variable size (between compact while stored, and huge while in-use).
  • Her quotes upon using  Super Mega Death Rocket! plays homage to similar lines from the Worms videogames which are played on firing Bazooka-type weapons.
  • "I'm bringing guns to the knife fight! Hehe." is a playful parody of Jimmy Malone's quote "Isn't that just like a wop? Brings a knife to a gun fight." from the movie The Untouchables.
  • "'She's such a loser, always ready to cry!' T-T-T-Ta!" is sung to the same melody as Vi's login theme, as well as being a reference to the lyrics of the song itself.
  • Jinx's quote "I'm crazy! Got a doctor's note." could be referencing "I'm not crazy. My mother had me tested," a popular phrase of Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory
  • "Jinx? Stands for Jinx! Durr." is a paired joke with  Vi's quotes, "Vi? Stands for Violence / Vice / Vicious."
  • Jinx's "Three guns means never having to say I'm sorry." is homage to the famous quote from the 1970's Movie 'Love Story.'
  • Jinx's "Let's just behave... said no one, ever." is a reference to a popular internet meme Said No One Ever.
  • Jinx's quote "What if I had a gun that shot other guns?" is a straight reference to the "gun that shoots other guns" meme.
  • Jinx's quote "I'm wearing lots of belts! For no reason at all." may be a reference to Tetsuya Nomura's habit of adding belts to final fantasy's character designs like so.

Skins

Classic Jinx
  • The background of her classic skin is the same as  Vi's classic skin, only ruined after her spree of crimes through Piltover.
  • Her outfit is described as Zaun's street fashion.
  • Under Jinxs right leg there is writing sprayed on the wall. Most of the text is hidden and impossible to read, there seems to be a repetition of "HE", indicating Jinx wrote it as her laughter, "HE HE HE".
Mafia Jinx
  • Jinx is dressed as a flapper.
  • Gangster Twitch, Mafia Miss Fortune and Urgot can be seen in the background.
  • The same kind of blue cards that  Twisted Fate uses can be seen at the bottom of Mafia Jinx's splash art. 
  • In this skin Pow-Pow the minigun becomes a violin case, referencing a common cliche in Noir stories where gangsters conceal firearms, such as a Thomson sub-machine gun, in instrument cases for attacks on rivals. 
  • Her dance animation is a reference to the 1920's "The Charleston". A side-by-side comparison can be seen here

Relations

  • She has an antagonistic relationship with  Vi.
  • It is heavily implied that  Jinx and  Vi are sisters, although every time Riot is presented the question they deflect with more fuel without specifically confirming. [6]
    • It has been confirmed that each champion has a sister, and we've heard many things about "Jinx's sister" and "Vi's sister" - however, their names have never been used in context of each other. [7][8]
    • It is apparent from Jinx's reveal that Vi does not know or recognize Jinx.
    • Interestingly, the two are strongly emphasized on their being opposites.  Vi has short pink hair and blue eyes, is one of the tallest females, has a more filled out body, uses melee combat and is fully armored while  Jinx has long blue hair and pink eyes, is short, uses ranged combat and is barely clothed. 
    • It's entirely possible that the two are not actually sisters and that Riot hasn't confirmed their relationship because it's not true - and that Riot is merely enjoying the community's reaction while knowing that each champion's sister is still on the way. This is supported by one of Jinx's quotes, "You think I'm crazy? You should see my sister.", as Vi's personality/theme does not really fit that description.
      • The possibility that they might not be sisters at all can also be backed up by Lyte's quote from the Howling Abyss to  Vi: "You look like your sister! Er, wait, I'm not supposed to talk about that...". Vi and Jinx bear no resemblance to one another in terms of appearance. The sister he's talking about could be someone we haven't been introduced to yet.
  • According to a Reddit AMA, Jinx wants to hug Ziggs. Ziggs, however, is quite terrified of Jinx.[9]

Music Video Lyrics
Blah blah blablah.
Wanna join me, come and play.
But I might shoot you, in your face.
Bombs and bullets will, do the trick.
What we need here, is a little bit of panic!
Do you ever wanna catch me?
Right now I'm feeling ignored!
So can you try a little harder?
I'm really getting bored!
Come on, shoot faster,
Just a little bit of energy!
I wanna try something fun right now,
I guess some people call it anarchy!
Let's blow this city to ashes,
And see what Pow-Pow thinks.
It's such pathetic neatness,
But not for long 'cause it'll get jinxed!
So much better, so much fun.
Let's start from scratch and, blow up the sun!
Come on, shoot faster,
Just a little bit of energy!
I wanna try something fun right now,
I guess some people call it anarchy!
Let's blow this city to ashes,
And see what Pow-Pow thinks.
It's such pathetic neatness,
But not for long 'cause it'll get jinxed!
Come on!
Come on!
And get jinxed!
