: Riot usually doesn't use fan art or concepts as isnpiration, so I kinda doubt that. I think that the star guardian team is simply based around the popular five man band setup and they just picked characters that fit those roles visually and characteristically: Lux as the leader and heart of the group, Jinx as the rival to the leader and violent team member, Lulu as the funny and childish comic relief, poppy as the dutiful lone wolf and Janna as the calm advisor and mentor. I have made a short [summary](http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/pKuyREQU-pls-stop-complaining-about-the-star-guardians-skins), if you want to read more into it. --- > [{quoted}](name=Tesla Effect,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=Mo3EKOlb,comment-id=0002,timestamp=2016-09-25T11:46:14.273+0000) > > Madoka Magica disproves the "no blades on magical girls" theory Taking an anime that is a **deconstruction** of the genre (magical pet is the main villain, the girls are doomed to die and transform into monsters, they suffer a lot of emotional trauma etc.) isn't really helping your point. Swords and physical combat in general are avoided in **classical** Magical Girls shows. --- > [{quoted}](name=Diskette,realm=EUW,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=Mo3EKOlb,comment-id=0001,timestamp=2016-09-25T11:21:02.764+0000) > > We already have lux who should be a mid.

Irelia and Diana both have weapons, fighting styles and personalities that don't fit the usual magical girls team that well. While the current setup makes much more sense. That said Riot probably will continue this skin line if it's a success.
Ok I understand then the lulu and Janna choice due to their wands and magical pet (pix and zephyr). But what about Jinx? Are guns and bazooka magical girls material ? Don't get me wrong Jinx is my favorite star guardian skin. But if they can have guns why not blades ? I'm sure irelia and Diana would have been huge. Poppy had a hammer too. Girls with wands on lol are Nami, Janna, Lulu, Soraka, Leblanc and Lux
: Question for Rito Regarding Star Guardians
I don't understand your poor choice for the star guardian skins. We already have lux who should be a mid. She we need 4 other champs for the 4 other roles. Jinx was a wonderful idea and Janna is okay (I would have preferred Karma) but lulu (another supp/mid?) and Poppy. They don't look like magical girls at all. I think you should have gone with Irelia instead of Poppy for top and with Diana instead of lulu for jungle. Irelia's ult would have had those stars instead of knives and Diana's Q would have a shooting star with the curvy tail. I really think you missed out on cool skins and outside of Jinx and Janna I don't think those lulu and Poppy skins will sell as well.
: If Taric's rework doesn't have any kind of special interaction with Ezreal...
Well I might be wrong but I don't think there an in game special taunt for Ez. The only interaction we have is that armor of the fifth age splash where he looks at Ez probably dreaming about him
