JinxSquare.png Slayer Jinx [S|L]
  • The original concept for a zombie-killing Jinx was a real-world zombie apocalypse survivor. However, designers decided to change the idea to zombie slayer since it'd fit better her personality.
    • When talking about zombie-killing theme, Jinx was the first champion thought for the concept.

  • She has black hearts tattooed on her right arm.
  • She shares this theme with PantheonSquare.png Slayer Pantheon [S|L].

Relations

  • Jinx is a Zaunite criminal who is wreaking havoc across Piltover 'for fun' and to provoke Vi Vi.
  • Jinx and Vi Vi are often shipped by the community as sisters. The only reference to this on Jinx's release was her quote,"You think Jinx I'm crazy? You should see my sister", but this sister is likely a figment of her crazy and not a real person. In any event, there was never any implication that sister was Vi Vi, but players equated Jinx's antagonization of Vi specifically as "sisterly bonding".
    • Incidentally, Jinx only antagonized Vi specifically on English-speaking serves. Other servers showed her antagonizing other champions, such as Lucian Lucian.
    • Shopkeeper Lyte later says to Vi, "You look like your sister! Er, wait, I'm not supposed to talk about that... ". This could be a confirmation that Vi (at least) has a sister, but could also be an example of Lyte repeating rumours he's heard from players (such as the rumour he heard from players that Lux and Ezreal were dating, which Lux herself later denied after hearing the rumour herself).
    • There is a significant indication that the pair did grow up together, however. With Vi Vi currently suffering from amnesia, Jinx Jinx has taken it upon herself to try and trigger her memories.
    • In an interview with Ghostcrawler, he mentioned that Jinx and Vi are "sisters", but later confirmed he was merely stating what he thought was true, and that the narrative team said otherwise.
  • Ekko Ekko remembers Jinx from before she went mad ("I had a crush... until you started talking to the gun")
  • Jinx constantly wants to hug Ziggs Ziggs (he is quite terrified of her)
