Champion Background Strategy Skins & Trivia


  • Traditional Karma
  • Sun Goddess Karma
  • Sakura Karma


  • Traditional Karma is voiced by Danielle McRae.
  • According to the voice actress, she fused accents of Storm from X-Men and Gaia from Captain Planet to create Traditional Karma's voice.
  • All of Karma's abilities, except for her first skill, have both an offensive and a defensive component, accentuating the dualism of her character.
    • The black and white robes of her Traditional skin display this as well, exhibiting her black and white side.
  • Karma is one of five champions to have more than 4 skills, the other being  Nidalee,  Jayce Elise and  Lee Sin.
    • Karma, after her rework, was the fifth champion to have more than 4 skills.
  • Karma is the first champion to feature an art spotlight even before her official arrival.
  • The name Karma and the title "The Enlightened One" are related to Buddha, which is Sanskrit for "enlightened one". The doctrine of karma, the effects good or bad actions have on a person, is prominent in Buddhist, Hindu, Jain and Sikh beliefs.
  • Apart from the changes made to her overall voice the 3 quotes she said when activating her ultimate, Mantra remain the same as in her old voiceover and on her  Traditional Skin
  • Karma is possibly based off Indian backgrounds because her ultimate Mantra is also a naturally occurring force that means "creation of the mind" in the Indian beliefs. Also her name "Karma" literally means "what goes around comes around" (similar to Yin and Yang in Chinese) in Indian language.
  • Karma used to be the only champion whose three main abilities had six ranks and who lacked an upgradable ultimate skill.
  • Karma's old passive was a rework of  Ryze's old passive,  Desperate Power.
  • Karma's old auto-attack range (425) was the shortest of all champions classified as ranged. She shared this trait with  Urgot and  Morgana.
  • Traditional Karma keeps her old voice over after her rework, while her Classic, Sun Goddess, and Sakura skins have her new voice over.
  • Karma is the first champion to have both redesign and relaunch after their release. The first champion to technically have a redesign was  Lee Sin however, this was before his launch and release.
  • Karma is the fourth champion to feature two champion spotlights due to significant changes to her kit and aesthetics, the others being  Ezreal,  Lee Sin and  Sivir.


  • Traditional Karma's quotes, "Onward always", "To conquer oneself is to conquer all", "Peace begins within" and "I interrupted my meditation for this?", all have connection to Buddhist beliefs.
  • Traditional Karma's joke "Guess what's about to hit the fan" is a reference to the saying "the sh*t hits the fan" meaning that something is about to change radically, like a situation escalating. It is also a pun on the fact that she wields fans as weapons.
  • Karma shares a quote with Syndra: "By force of will".
  • Karma's joke is a double entendre.
    • It refers to the fact where her kit makes it rather easy to catch up to an opponent.
    • The other is about karma, where your deeds will always be done to you in due time.
  • Karma's quote "I have seen two paths, and made another between" is likely a reference to the Buddhist belief of the "Middle Way".
  • Karma uses a quote ("If you desire peace, you must prepare for war!") based on a latin saying "Si vis pacem, para bellum", which means "If you want peace, prepare for war". This also refers to her Background.


Classic Karma

  • When dancing, Karma uses a pair of fans except for her classic skin. This is a tribute to her original model where she used fans as her main weapon.
  • Karma is the second Ionian female, after  Irelia, whose clothing includes Ionia's "Mantle of Decorum", a large metallic circular decoration floating behind her head. It is Ionia's highest decoration.
  • Karma's Mantle of Decorum is the symbol of Ionia.
    • It can also be seen in the background of Traditional Karma's splash art and as Sakura Karma's Mantle of Decorum.

Sakura Karma

  • This skin depicts her in a Japanese geisha theme.
  • Sakura is the Japanese term for ornamental cherry blossom trees and their blossoms. It is an omen of good fortune and emblem of love.
  • The symbol repeated on the fans of the splash art is the symbol of the Pax Cultura

Sun Goddess Karma
