Pentakill is a series of parallel universe skins in League of Legends featuring champions as members of the greatest (and possibly only) metal band in Runeterra, named after scoring five kills in quick succession.

History

You have sown. Now you shall reap.

You have seen the true voice of metal fall quiet, surrounded by the massed harmonies of your weak whispers. But listen closely to those whispers, and you shall find the seed of truth. Five Four voices. Five harbingers of destruction, waiting patiently for their time to rise. And on that chosen day, these five shall change your world forever. Sonic brutality has never ascended such heights before. These voices have already slain the Dragon Dragon and butchered the Baron Nashor Baron. They have ravaged the Fields of Justice, burned Runeterra to the ground, and slaughtered millions of Teemo Teemos. When they come, their breed of metal shall Smite.png Smite your plebeian souls and punish your frail bodies. You will cower at their visage and tremble at the name... ProfileIcon0666 Pentakill Pentakill.

And Pentakill is coming... for you. Because you have sown, and now you shall reap.

"My rig doesn't just hit eleven. It ******* melts eleven." - MordekaiserSquare.png Pentakill Mordekaiser [S|L]

A prodigal guitarist just minutes after his birth, Mordekaiser Mordekaiser spent his formative years mastering the art of metal until he was so adept at shredding that his guitars would wither and combust under his furious fretwork. Desperate to find his instrumental equal, Mordekaiser traveled far and wide in search of a legendary guitar known only as Mace of Spades.png 'Numero Uno'. Both made of metal and made for metal, Mace of Spades 2.png Numero Uno was known as the indestructible axe, a tool Mordekaiser hoped would withstand his beastly playing. Finally, after years of searching, he found it buried deep within a Shuriman crypt. But as Mordekaiser grasped the instrument's neck for the first time, it too grasped him, filling him with murderous intent and driving his headbanging instincts harder and heavier than they'd ever been before. Mordekaiser emerged from the crypt a changed man, and as he returned to civilization, his antics took a turn for the violent. One fateful band practice, Mace of Spades 3.png Numero Uno's power became too much - Mordekaiser turned berserk, murdering his bandmates, including their up-and-coming singer, Karthus Karthus.


"Come what ever may, I'll be the death of you." - KarthusSquare.png Pentakill Karthus [S|L]

Pentakill Karthus was not born, but reborn. A promising metal vocalist in life, the demons of the Shadow Isles saw purpose in Karthus, and after his murder at the hands of Mordekaiser, imbued him with undeath before steeping his voice in the fury of countless lost souls. Karthus resumed singing, earning himself a fearsome reputation after eating a live Poro Poro and gargling gravel during his Shadowstock debut. He set about establishing himself as the Shadow Isles' finest vocalist, but soon grew tired with the lack of local instrumental talent. Remembering Mordekaiser's unmatched playing, Karthus sought passage back to Valoran, and enlisted the help of the only musician Karthus felt was his equal: the bass-playing ferryman, Yorick Yorick.


"More bass. Turn the bass up. Turn the ******* bass up. More. More." - YorickSquare.png Pentakill Yorick [S|L]

Pentakill Yorick spent his early years on the Shadow Isles torturing Unholy Covenant.png ghouls and Omen of Death.png ghosts with his pounding bass playing. But as the years passed by, the ghouls started to enjoy the head-rattling virtuoso's playing. Eventually they formed Yorick's hardcore fanbase and followed him throughout the Shadow Isles, earning him the nickname 'Brown Note' thanks to their muddy coloration. After ferrying Karthus back to Valoran, Yorick decided to join him, create a '******* awesome' band, and unleash their terrifying symphony on the unsuspecting living masses.


"...!" - SonaSquare.png Pentakill Sona [S|L]

After arriving in Valoran and reuniting with Mordekaiser, the three headbangers scoured the lands, butchering all within ear's reach with their demonic tunes. But they met their match in Sona Sona, who, through years of silence, had attuned her hearing to withstand all manner of metal. Impressed with both her resilience and her ability to tear up her keys while covered in blood, the three offered Sona a place in their band, and thus Pentakill Sona was born. With her in the band, the group's destruction amped up significantly, and soon only the frozen northlands harbored humanity's last stand. The monolithic colossus of metal that is Pentakill was almost complete...


"Get me a new china, toms, snare, double pedal, and cowbell. Yeah, basically a new set. Old one broke. Caught fire. Yeah I set it on fire." - OlafSquare.png Pentakill Olaf [S|L]

Continuing their massacre, the demonic quartet finally reached the frozen wastes of the Freljord. Tribe after tribe fell, the Howling Abyss howled for mercy, and villages were set ablaze until the whole world was ready to burn. Looking for a celebratory drink, the four entered Runeterra's last standing bar, and found it empty save for one man. Olaf Olaf was not in a sober state, and challenged 'the biggest of yous *****' to an arm wrestle. Yorick stepped up, and the duel began. Legend states that the two were locked in arm-on-arm combat for days, sustaining themselves with whiskey and peanuts. Finally, Karthus, bored of the deadlock, offered Olaf a place in the band. "I'm only good at hitting ****", said Olaf. "Perfect", rasped Karthus, "you shall be our drummer."

Lyrics
Pentakill - Lightbringer04:57

Pentakill - Lightbringer

First Verse
Fellow armsmen, I ask you:
"Will you follow me tonight to break their spine,
and reclaim what once was mine?"
Those cravens, backstabbed me, deceived me.
Never shall I tolerate their crimes again.
Now let the hunt begin (yeah!)
Seven thousands souls, scared and daunted, such a tale of woe.
Not too long ago, this village was a golden scene of hope.
Chorus
Call down the reckoning,
to bring back hope and peace, restore our gloria,
to live forever (yeah!)
Bring down the dark regime,
I know how to unleash eternal power,
lead us to order.
I am the The Lightbringer item.png Lightbringer! (yeah!)
I am the Lightbringer!
Second Verse
Now listen, fellow warriors, I ask you:
"Should my campaign come to an end?"
There's way more to avenge (woah!)
Fifteen million souls, living in this realm without much hope,
not too long ago, this kingdom was a golden state of hope.
(Yeah! Ah, ah, ah, ah, oh!)
Chorus
Call down the reckoning,
to bring back hope and peace, restore our gloria,
to live forever (yeah!)
Bring down the dark regime,
I know how to unleash eternal power,
lead us to order.
I am the Lightbringer!
Bridge
(Woah!) Call down the reckoning,
bring back hope and peace, restore our gloria,
to live forever.
Chorus
Call down the reckoning,
to bring back hope and peace, restore our gloria,
to live forever.
Bring down the dark regime,
I know how to unleash eternal power,
lead us to order.
I am the Lightbringer!

Smite.png Smiting the wicked Baron Nashor Baron,
and unleash my might.
Chorus
When we face our final hour in the darkest rift.
Come what ever may, I'll be the death of you.
After channeling my power, your end will be swift.
Now there's nothing in my way, you'll feel my Deathfire Grasp item.png Deathfire Grasp!
Second Verse
Clashing minions,
ravaged fields of war.
Manifest my dominion,
total chaos restored.
Chorus (x2)
When we face our final hour in the darkest rift.
Come what ever may, I'll be the death of you.
After channeling my power, your end will be swift.
Now there's nothing in my way, you'll feel my deathfire grasp!

No matter how much honor they display.
We'll dominate.

Right before they die.
This melody seeks a new victim,
let it penetrate their mind.
Second Verse
I will Revive.png Revive one more life to Ignite.png Ignite them all,
and their Barrier.png Barriers will crumble under all of my force.

There will be no Ghost.png Ghost for him,
We shall end it all (woah, yeah, yeah!)

They'll hear my deadly last whisper,
Right before they die.
