< Rengar

Champion Background Strategy Skins & Trivia



  • Rengar was designed by Classick.[1]
  • Rengar is voiced by Patrick Seitz , who also voiced  Kog'Maw,  Renekton and  Lucian.
  • Rengar's lore and personality are most likely inspired by the short story The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell.
  • Rengar's hairstyle, wrist blades, passive, and ultimate are references to the Predator franchise.
  • Rengar's appearance is also similar to one of the alien bounty hunters in Samurai Jack.
  • Rengar is the first champion to have two unique items: Bonetooth Necklace and Head of Kha'Zix. He is the second champion to have at least one unique item, the first being  Viktor.
  • Rengar's dance is a reference to the New Zealand tribal dance, Maori haka, particularly the Ka Mate. A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
  • Rengar is one of ten champions to reference another champion in-game, the others being  Zed, Renekton,  Volibear,  Graves,  Kha'Zix, Aatrox Quinn Vi, and  Jinx.
  • Rengar's passive,  Unseen Predator, is similar to  Nidalee's passive,  Prowl, in that they both provide utility while in the brush.  Caitlyn's  Headshot is also an ability that uses the brush specifically in activation.
  • Initially, many in the community believed that Rengar had fought  Cho'Gath in his lore. It was later revealed that it was  Kha'Zix that Rengar was fighting.
  • Rengar's overall concept shares very similar concepts to the lyrics of the song Eye of the Tiger by Survivor.
    • Rengar, the "Tiger", lost one eye, leaving him with only one, the "eye of the tiger".
    • Rengar's ultimate  Thrill of the Hunt could be a reference to "the thrill of the fight".
    • Rengar is trying to hunt and kill his rival  Kha'Zix.
  • Rengar is an anagram for ranger.
  • In every one of Rengar's quote, he 'purrs' a bit, but the sound projected is a bit like gurgling. It is highly possible that Rengar drools out a lot.
  • Rengar's artificial orange eye resembles that of Bear Cavalry  Sejuani's bear, who also has a left eye missing on the same side as Rengar's artificial eye - this suggests that Rengar may have taken the bear's eye after Kha'zix removed his own during their conflict.


  • Headhunter Rengar skin is most likely a reference to the Predator species from the Predator franchise, sporting similar wrist blades, armor, fishnets and hair. Additionaly, when Rengar uses his ultimate while using the Headhunter skin, a woodpecker-esque sound can be heard. This sound is the same sound that the Predator makes while stalking his prey.
    • In the Headhunter skin's splash art, you can see  Dragon's and  Baron Nashor's skulls on the left side.This shoulder pad seems to be  Vilemaw's skull.
    • In the Headhunter skin's splash art, Rengar is seen wearing his unique item, Bonetooth Necklace.


  • Rengar fought against  Kha'Zix and lost his left eye during the conflict. He seeks to one day slay Kha'Zix and add the monster's head to his collection as his most prized trophy.
    • The conflict between Rengar and Kha'Zix is a reference to the Alien vs. Predator series.

The Hunt Is On

As part of the event The Hunt Is On!,  Rengar and  Kha'Zix are assigned to defeat one another in battle. The first to score a kill on the other claims victory (assists count). The event begins randomly after  Kha'Zix has used all 3 evolution points,  Rengar is in possession of the Bonetooth Necklace with at least 10 stacks, and all members of both teams must be alive for the event to start.

This event can only occur once per game, even if both teams possess both champions. A video describing the event can be found here.
