Relations

  • Jinx is a Zaunite criminal who is wreaking havoc across Piltover 'for fun' and to provoke ViSquare Vi.
  • Jinx and ViSquare Vi are often shipped by the community as sisters. The only reference to this on Jinx's release was her quote,"You think JinxSquare I'm crazy? You should see my sister". There was never any implication that the sister was ViSquare 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 LucianSquare 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 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).
    • In an interview with Ghostcrawler, he mentioned that Jinx and Vi are "sisters", but later confirmed that he was merely stating what he thought was true, and that the narrative team said otherwise.
  • EkkoSquare Ekko remembers Jinx from before she went mad ("I had a crush... until you started talking to the gun")
  • Jinx constantly wants to hug ZiggsSquare Ziggs but he is quite terrified of her.
    • Jinx believes he is a product of her imagination, more specifically, her consciense.
