    Kohyou, the Cursed Swordsman is a custom concept champion in League of Legends.


    Kohyou is a manaless champion. Instead he has a resource known as "Hunger" that slowly increases over time. Kohyou can have a max of 100 Hunger, and it increases by 1 every 1.25 seconds. Hunger cannot go below 0. Autoattacks decrease the Hunger count by 1 for every hit. Critical strikes will decrease the Hunger count by 3 - so an autoattack that gains a critical strike decreases Hunger by 4. Using abilities will increase Hunger count by 4 and decrease Hunger by 1 for every champion hit. Hitting non-champion enemy units and neutral monsters with abilities has the same effect on Hunger as a regular autoattack.

    At 100 Hunger, Kohyou will gain a debuff "The Blade Hungers" that drains his health by 1.5% of his maximum health every second. Once his health drops to 30% or below, the health drain from the debuff will be based off his missing health instead. This debuff cannot be removed by any means other than his autoattacks and skill usage. Kohyou cannot die from the effects of this debuff. The debuff will stay active so long as Kohyou is not dead and will only be removed when Hunger decreases to 80 or lower.

    When he lands a critical hit, he gains a "buff" called "Sated Blade" that cancels and prevents the "The Blade Hungers" debuff. Kohyou will start matches with a special version of this buff lasting 2 minutes. After the initial buff fades, the regular version of this buff will last 3 seconds. Scoring another critical hit while the buff is active will refresh the buff's duration once. This buff has a cooldown of 2 seconds, not affected by cooldown reduction.

    All of Kohyou's other skills will behave differently based on the percentage of "Hunger" accumulated.

    Living Blade

    Kohyou's blade hungers for the essence of his enemies, compelling Kohyou to act on its will. Every 1% of bonus critical strike chance generates an extra 0.5% attack speed bonus.

    Bloody Hastening
    COOLDOWN: 9 / 8 / 7 / 6 / 5

    (Active): Kohyou brandishes his blade around him, slicing all enemies caught in the radius. If he hits an enemy champion, he steals movement speed for 2 seconds.

    • Physical damage: 30 / 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 (+ 100% bonus AP)

    Hunger: At 50 or greater Hunger, the attack will hit all enemies twice and hitting an enemy champion will reduce the cooldown by 2 seconds. At 80 or greater Hunger, the attack will do additional damage scaling with 120% of his bonus AD.

    Scarlet Blade

    (Toggle): Kohyou invokes a portion of the evil blade's power, granting his attacks extra reach and bonus lifesteal at the risk of starving the blade of essence.

    Hunger: Kohyou's basic attacks gain 25 range, his abilities gain 50% extra range, and he gains 1% lifesteal (applied over 2 seconds) at the cost of Hunger increasing by 2 per second instead of 1. At 80% or greater Hunger, he gains a bonus 15% attack speed while toggled on.

    Blade Wave
    RANGE: 700
    COOLDOWN: 15 / 14 / 13 / 12 / 11

    (Active): Kohyou surges forward, becoming a flurry of slashes that deals damage and briefly roots all enemies caught in his wake.

    • Physical damage: 65 / 85 / 115 / 135 / 155 (+ 50% bonus AP)

    Hunger: At 80 or more Hunger, enemies hit are slowed by 30% for 3 seconds after being rooted

    Dire Awakening
    COOLDOWN: 100

    (Active): Kohyou's blade awakens, manifesting the corruption within to aid him in battle and empower him greatly for 30 seconds. Kohyou's attack speed is reduced by 50%, while his AD and critical strike chance are increased by 20% each. While active, Kohyou's basic attacks have 1% lifesteal (applied separately and after the lifesteal of Scarlet Blade) and will root Kohyou and the target hit for 0.2 seconds. Enemies cannot be rooted by Kohyou's basic attacks for 3 seconds after being hit.

    • Magic damage: 100 / 200 / 300 (+ 70% AP)

    (Active): The beast of the blade lunges forward, ravaging and mauling anything in an area in front of Kohyou, dealing massive damage.
