the Petty Patrol Tengu
Momiji, the Petty Patrol Tengu is a custom Touhou champion in League of Legends.

Notes and Nonsense
Different to Japanese crow tengus like Aya and Hatate, Momiji is the Chinese wolf variant. Devoted to Lord Tenma, she respects and obeys his every command. Contrary to popular fanon belief, she doesn't have a good relationship with Aya, fighting whenever they meet. Her ability to look at large distances and a developed sense of smell make her the perfect scout and defender for the tengu society.
- Passive: I had to go with her theme, the ability to look at large distances. Average champions have 1400-1500 sight range, so at level 1, Momiji will have extra 200 sight range if her speed resource is full. As the levels go up, Momiji can see further than anybody, with a theoretical sight range of 2300, as wide as Nocturne's level 1 ultimate. This is useful when scouting unwarded areas especially around late game where Baron is an important objective, champions in bushes are still invisible though.
- Q: Standard aoe skill. Dealing extra damage to stunned or feared enemies make her a threat that shouldn't be left ignored.
- W: Single-target dash CC. This also allows Momiji to tank if she's taking damage from the front. The built-in defenses do not help her if she is retreating.
- E: Team boost. Gangplank-ish except that it doesn't provide a passive when unused and it provides attack speed instead.
- R: Crowd control ultimate. The fear is delayed after 1 second when the spirit wolf hits an enemy, so the enemies are given a very brief window of opportunity to get out.

- "Now's the chance to mate the King."
- "I'll hear yelping soon."
- "Time to generate a presence."
- "They won't like my bite."
- "Sword to slash and shield to bash."
- "Marching forward."
- "My senses are amplified."
- "Are there enemies there?"
- "Sharpening my fangs."
- "Ooh, there's something shiny over there."
- "There's a difference between tactics and strategy."
- "No, I'm not a dog."
- "For Lord Tenma."
- "Ready and waiting."
- "As fast as I can."
- "Checkmate, you have just lost."
- "Your tactics are astonishingly flimsy."
- "I read your moves, and they're poorly executed."
- "Did I mention you just got mated? Wait a sec..."
- "I'm not a white Husky, I'm a white wolf...
- "I don't have any good ideas for a joke... *whines*"
- Joke when an allied Nitori is nearby
- "A round of shougi? Sure."
This will probably be my last champion using Speed as a resource. Momiji's kit is a tank-bruiser hybrid, built with damage, strong single-target CC and a soft CC ultimate. In my opinion, this kits seems to be simpler than other concepts. Overall, the kit feels much better now compared to my earlier idea. --Mineko Charat Lucky (talk) 14:51, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
