Fun Gus, the Fungal Trickster is a custom champion in League of Legends.

Hyphae

Passive: Enemies taking damage inside the area covered by the connected hyphae gives Fun Gus a stacked buff that restores 6% - 12% (based on level) of the damage dealt over 6 seconds. Fun Gus may have up to 3 stacks, although each stacks run independently of each other. Fun Gus also has a hyphal region of his own with a radius of 550. Damage that resulted in death of enemies heal Fun Gus for 4% / 6% / 8% / 10% of the target's maximum hit points over 6 seconds, although only one instance of the buff can be applied at a time. Lastly, Fun Gus and allied champions may purchase Hyphal Node from the shop, a unique consumable item.


Technical Information: Connected hyphae region means that Fun Gus doesn't benefit just from his own hyphal region. However, it is not a global one, but rather defined as his native region, and that of any Hyphae nodes within his region, and any subsequent Hyphal nodes that are connected to connected Hyphal nodes. Of course, this means that Fun Gus can have a solid network of Hyphae, allowing him a constant stream of regeneration. It is basically a healing variant of Draven Draven's Wicked Blades.png Wicked Blades, and the stacks work the same, meaning each stack has its own expiration timer.

Hyperactive Growth
RANGE: 600
COST: 80 mana
COOLDOWN: 14 / 13 / 12 / 11 / 10
ChampionSquare

Active: Fun Gus causes a fungal growth, either on the ground or on a target, causing roots to grow from the target location or entity while dealing magic damage to all enemy units while slowing them. The targeted version of the ability causes a greater slow on the initial target that fades over 3 seconds. While under these newly grown roots, these roots continue to seek out living tissue to digest, and enemies that take damage over them will take additional damage over time, while allied units over the roots gain small values of life. This root growth lasts 3 seconds.

  • Growth spread magic damage: 50 / 80 / 110 / 140 / 170 (+ 70% AP)
  • Additional magic damage to target: 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60
  • Root slow: 25%
  • Target Slow: 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70%
  • Additional magic damage taken while under root: 3 / 3.5 / 4 / 4.5 / 5% of missing health over 3 seconds
  • Life Tap while under root: 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6% of all damage taken by enemies under root over 3 seconds
  • Root radius: 250


Skill Summary: An ability that functions much like Zyra Zyra's Stranglethorns.png Stranglethorns, Fun Gus's Hyperactive Growth is a decent AoE ability that also applies a small but respectable AoE slow. However, the root has utility values, most notably the life tap from all damages taken by the enemy unit. This life tap is shared between allies, so if a total of 3000 damage was dealt to the enemies over the root and there were 3 friendly champs over a level 5 Hyperactive growth, each will receive 60 Hp over 3 seconds.

Fungal Bud
RANGE: 600 / 650 / 700 / 750 / 800
COST: 10% of Maximum Health
COOLDOWN: 30
ChampionSquare

Passive: Fun Gus gains an size increase in his innate Hyphae region.Active: Fun Gus throws a fungal "seed", which turns into a budding fruit that can be picked up by the allies to restore health. In addition, if the fruit is located so that it is connected to Fun Gus's hyphae, Fun Gus can activate Hyphal Transfer. Fungal Bud lasts 2 minutes. Enemies may destroy the fungal fruit by stepping on them, although doing so deals magic damage back at them.

  • Heal: 40 / 75 / 110 / 145 / 180 (+ 6.5% of Fun Gus's maximum health)
  • Extension of Passive Radius: 50 / 100 / 150 / 200 / 250
  • Magic damage from fruit destruction: 30 / 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 (+ 40% AP)
Hyphal Transfer
RANGE: Conditionally Global
COST: No cost
COOLDOWN: None
ChampionSquare


Active: Fun Gus relocates his vital components via the Hyphal node to a place suitable for quick rebuilding (i.e. location of a fungal fruit), teleporting him to the location of the fruit, and refunding half of the health cost of the ability. This teleportation is not instantaneous, casting time dependent on the distance between the fruit and Fun Gus.

  • Magic damage: 70 / 110 / 150 / 190 / 230 (+ 60% AP)
  • Radius of AoE: 250


Skill Summary: A powerful utility spell, the Fungal Bud/Hyphal Transfer combination is a very versatile skillset that fulfills both a healing/sustain usage as well as map control if combined with a large hyphae network.

Technical Information:Fungal Bud is a ground-targeted non-collisional skillshot, although there is no damage associated with landing the ability itself.

Hyphal Transfer is a targeted teleportation ability, although if there is only one fungal fruit that is connected to Fun Gus it will not need an manual target input. As with all teleportation abilities, movement-disabling crowd control abilities will disable its use. Its channel time (conceptualized) is 1 seconds + .15 second for every 500 units of distance between Fun Gus and the fruit in question beyond Fun Gus's native hyphal radius.

Acquiring the fruit works in a similar fashion as operating Thresh Thresh's Dark Passage.png Dark Passage, although it doesn't return the user to Fun Gus, but rather heals, and obviously no shield from being near the mushroom.

Fungal Sensitivity
RANGE: Conditionally Global
COST: 100 / 80 / 60 / 40 / 20 mana
COOLDOWN: 25 / 22 / 19 / 16 / 13
ChampionSquare

Passive: Increases Fun Gus's health regeneration and movement speed. In addition, Fun Gus deals bonus magic damage, which stacks up to 6 times. Active: Fun Gus uses his fungal senses to check for enemies. Fun Gus is able to check for all enemy champions that are inside the region of hyphal regions connected to Fun Gus, and reveal them for a set period of time. Also, sensitivity increases reflex, increasing Fun Gus's attack speed for 2 second whenever he lands a basic attack. The ability to proc attack speed buff lasts for the duration of the reveal period depending on the number of stacks.

  • Healing and Regeneration Increase: 6% / 12% / 18% / 24% / 30%
  • Movement Speed Increase: 4% / 5% / 6% / 7% / 8%
  • Reveal Period: 3 / 3.75 / 4.5 / 5.25 / 6 Seconds
  • Active Attack Speed Increase per stack: 2% / 3% / 4% / 5% / 6%
  • Magic Damage per Stack: 2 / 3.25 / 4.5 / 5.75 / 7 (+ 5% total AD) (+ 5% AP)


Great Fungal Guardian
COST: 150 mana
COOLDOWN: 130 / 110 / 90
ChampionSquare

Active: Fun Gus casts a special Spore Pod, which buds into a great Fungal Guardian. When it buds, it knocks up all enemies caught within its radius for 1 second, create the Great Fungal Guardian that cannot be jumped, deal initial physical damage, and deals an aura-based magic damage over time. The Great Fungal Guardian lasts 7 seconds.

  • Initial Physical Damage: 100 / 200 / 300 (+ 6% of Fun Gus's maximum health) (+ 70% AP)
  • Health of Fungal Guardian: 300 / 450 / 600 (+ 20% of Fun Gus's maximum health)
  • Magic Damage per second: 20 / 35 / 50 (+ 8% AP)
  • Maximum Magic Damage: 140 / 245 / 350 (+ 56% AP)


Explanation of the Hyphae mechanic

Hyphae mechanic is a recursive one, in that hyphae nodes are considered connected to Fun Gus if any of the nodes connected to the node is connected to Fun Gus's native region itself. In pseudocode terms and read almost Java,

List<HyphaeNode> adjacentNodes... //Holds all the nodes connected to the node.
boolean isConnected()
{
    if(distance(node, fungus) <= fungus.hyphalradius)
    {
        return true;
    }
    else
    {
        for(HyphaeNode ang : adjacentNodes)
        {
             if(ang.isConnected())
             {
                 return true;
             }
        }
        return false;
    }
}

Unique Item

Hyphal Node

  • Cost: 25 gold
  • Tier: Consumable
  • Effect: Active: Allows the champion to place an Hyphal Node, which has an hyphal radius of 600, and are used to interact with Fun Gus's abilities. Hyphal Nodes go invisible 1 second after being placed, and it lasts indefinitely until destroyed. The Hyphal Node grants an aura that restores 1% of all damage received by all units in its hyphal radius to allied champions over 5 seconds in a regenerative fashion. This aura buff is not visible to opponents.

Hyphal Nodes work just like wards in that it has 3 health and each basic attack deals 1 damage to the node. Hyphal Nodes do not provide vision on its own. Unlike wards, Hyphal nodes are vulnerable to certain AoE abilities like Tormented Soil.png Tormented Soil and Cataclysm.png Cataclysm, but not abilities like Counter Strike.png Counter Strike. Terrain Effects, such as Crystallize.png Crystallize and Pillar of Filth.png Pillar of Filth will instantly destroy Hyphal Nodes.

Lore

The Plague Jungles was that region full of strange life, such as Rammus Rammus and Wukong Wukong. Thanks to magic, the animation and sentience was not limited to animals alone, as demonstrated by the rise of Maokai Maokai in the Zaunite forest that was the old Twisted Treeline. In the Plague Jungles, there was one big mushroom that served as the "father" of all the fungal decomposers that recycled materials in the said forest, connected by a vast network of hyphae. As the magic lingered on in the abnormal environment, it was only inevitable that the magic was absorbed by the fungi, resulting in the gift of sentience to the said father fungus.

However, given the chaotic nature of the magic, the new fungal creature had a personality different from either Rammus or Wukong: The creature embraced the "cool" personality that was the vogue in say the later Cold War America, and took to himself the name "Fun Gus."

The real question is how this uncaring entity joined the League in the first place: Fun Gus had no ambition, no goals, no quests. He was first spotted by the civilized in Bandle City, whose citizens were quite intrigued by the sentient mushroom. From there he wandered around for no reason than the fact that he was bored, finding none of the city-states to his liking. In fact, he was never interested in the League of Legends, and it took coaxing and persuasion to get him to join the League, the promise of entertainment was necessary. Although Fun Gus reluctantly joined, he has yet to find the entertainment he seeks, although he does appreciate the minority that took up his style with him being launched into the Fields of Justice.

Playstyle

Fun Gus is probably best played as a Jungler, although he can serve a role as a bruiser, and thus make a semi-decent top laner, or to a lesser extent, a mid laner. Fun Gus's strength lies in the fact that Fun Gus has a very high conditional mobility, allowing Fun Gus to make ganks that ignore wards (or escape from sticky situation, or avoid them outright), and also offer great utility with the Hyphal node system.

As you can guess from my biggest champion draft, I'm a big sucker for tons of utility, and Fun Gus follows the high-utility paradigm. Whereas Basilis provides a bulwark of local utility, Fun Gus operates differently, focusing primarily on map control, following the concept of omnipresence of fungi, having a conditionally global transportation skill, and the E remake conceptualized to be an conditionally global single-target CC.

Pros Cons
Great conditional mobility
Very high gank threat
Great sustain
Good map control
Has an AoE nuke
Great Sustain
Decent Damage Dealing for a tanky fighter
Very reliant on hyphal nodes
Lack of at-ready CC
Can't interrupt channeled spells without ultimate
Not as tanky as most bruisers given the skewed stats favoring health late game
Low burst
No innate tanking skills

Comparison to my other champ designs

With Basilis

Like Fun Gus, Basilis is also a versatility champion, and thus they are similar in couple of things: Both Basilis and Fun Gus have supportive element in their kit: both have methods of tracking enemy locations from afar, and both sport an AoE ult designed for a teamfight situation. On the other hand, Fun Gus and Basilis are also different: Fun Gus boasts a good mobility, and his ability allows Fun Gus to be a very strong roamer/ganker, whereas Basilis's ult prevents her from moving without Flash or Teleport for the duration of the ultimate. Basilis is perhaps one of the banes of channeling champs such as Fiddlesticks Fiddlesticks and Katarina Katarina given the short cooldown of the Homing Zapper Drone that casts a mini silence (much like Static Field.png Static Field and Chaos Storm.png Chaos Storm), while Fun Gus has no way of interrupting a channel asides from using his ultimate. Lastly, Fun Gus sports heals and have huge sustain, whereas Basilis has no health sustain.

Aesthetics

Appearance

Fun Gus is basically a mushroom with a face and limbs, basically a cephalothorax except that his "head" is a mushroom. He sports a cool mustache and a shade, which is best visualized by a sims moodlet icon. Fun Gus is basically a comic character, much like say Dr. Mundo Dr. Mundo.

Alternate Skin concepts

Decades Fun Gus

Influenced by the 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff Pack from Sims 3, it involvs Fun Gus wearing the apparels associated with the respective decades in a system similar to Pulsefire Ezreal. Fun Gus starts off with the current trend, then jumps into the 70s fashion at level 6, 80s at level 11, and 90s fashion at level 16.

LGBT Fun Gus

Billy Herrington is supreme, and we need moar champions that the LGBT(A) can associate with. The skin gives Fun Gus a more buffed texture, as well as the Billy Herrington face for maximum win
