Super minions are powerful melee minion. They only spawn on lanes where enemy inhibitors are destroyed, and stop spawning when the inhibitor respawns. While super minions are spawning, no Blue Siege MinionSquare siege minion will spawn in that lane.

On Summoner's Rift and Twisted Treeline, when all inhibitors are destroyed, a second super minion will spawn in each lane.
