League of Legends has an abundance of champion skins. In 2022, Riot Games released over 160 skins. Comparing this to the current number of champions which is 163 you would think that close to all champions received at least one skin last year and you would be wrong. Here are 5 League of Legends champions who didn't get a skin last year, let alone for a few years.

All days were recorded at the time of writing. This list was last updated on August 8th, 2023.

League of Legends Champions who need a new Skin

Riot Games released a State of Skins update which teased an Ultimate Samira Skin and the new Crystalis Motus Mythic skin line. Crystalis Motus begins with Leona, and will be joined by Taliyah and Ashe later in the year.

Some skins from League of Legends: Wild Rift are also being ported, starting from Star Guardian Orianna, Seraphine, and Senna along with Redeemed Xayah and Rakan.

5 – Vel'Koz – 842 days

Vel'Koz is the only Void champion who has not received a skin in the last two years.

He has a good, albeit small, pool of skins. Vel'Koz players probably shouldn't get their hopes up too high for a new skin anytime soon, but like Rumble, he also has a unique design and his skins can be taken in many interesting ways. Unfortunately, he has remained a niche pick across all skill levels and has not had a resurgence in a long time due to his artillery mage playstyle.

Vel'Koz' most recent skin is Blackfrost Vel'Koz, but his wardrobe includes skins like Arclight and Battlecast, both of which are visually pleasing and not too jarring when compared to League of Legends' maps. Considering his available skins, he's not in urgent need of a new one, but getting one anyway would be nice. Maybe the Broken Covenant line to join his Void brother Cho'Gath would be an interesting approach.

4. Rumble – 856 days

Rumble remains a niche pick across most skill levels, but with his unique design as a Yordle on a mech, it's surprising his skins never went beyond “wild” or “space-themed.”

His most recent skin is Space Groove Rumble, released April 2021. His five skins are already showing their age, especially since Rumble has been around since 2011. Out of all of his skins, one is in the Legacy vault, and the other ones are just subpar choices. Hence, Rumble players usually use either Space Groove Rumble or Super Galaxy Rumble. It would be great if Riot took Rumble's skin design somewhere more interesting, or just give him a visual rework like Ahri got recently.

Despite him having a low pickrate in soloqueue, Rumble has seen a recent emergence in professional play, so maybe this would get Riot Games to turn their heads to the Yordle in a Mech once again to give him an overhaul. Super Galaxy Rumble has already become a fan favorite and would be the Rumble skin you'd be seeing most of the time, and Riot will have to top that if they want to make him a new one.

3. Alistar – 912 Days

As one of League's oldest champions, Alistar has received many, many skins over the years. However, he's been ignored for over 2 years now, and his most recent skins isn't even that good.

Alistar was one of the release champions of League of Legends, and he became playable even before version 1.0. His long tenure in the game and his being a mainstay as a tanking, supporting, teamfight-engaging Minotaur has earned him more than a few skins in the wardrobe.

He amounts up to 14 skins, two of which are unavailable, one being rare, and six in the Legacy Vault including his most recent Lunar Beast Alistar.

He has regularly gotten a new skin back when the game's champion pool was smaller, and some of these still hold up quality-wise. This means he will most likely not get a new skin in the near future, and importing from Wild Rift isn't a choice either as it uses the same splash for whichever skins are available. For now, players will have to deal with Moo Cow Alistar spamming his cowbell for a little while longer before a new skin for the minotaur is released.

2. Skarner – 984 Days

Skarner has not seen a new skin in a while, with the most recent being Cosmic Sting Skarner over two years ago.

Skarner remains a niche pick in the jungle, however, with the new tank items introduced in the Preseason, he's been getting more attention. The champion itself was released in 2011, in one of the first patches of the game. Despite his age, he's only received five skins in total, averaging a skin every 2.2 years. Fortunately for Skarner's dedicated player base, he hasn't been forgotten and has a VGU on the timetable. On the other hand, this has once again been delayed to 2024, meaning it's highly unlikely for him to get a new skin until then.

1. Dr. Mundo – 1703 days

Dr. Mundo, like the others on this list, also received a full relaunch on June 9, 2021. This meant that everything about the champion, including skins, was reworked and changed. That being said, it's been a year and a half since, and an even longer amount of time has passed since his most recent skin, Frozen Prince Mundo, was released.

Frozen Prince Mundo was released in 2018 and received a very minor change when Dr. Mundo was relaunched. Other skins, like the Legendary skin Corporate Mundo, were changed drastically, but it sure is a mystery why the self-proclaimed doctor kept his wardrobe closed for long.

A majority of Dr. Mundo's skins, including the most recent Frozen Prince Mundo, are in the Legacy Vault. Only four out of his 10 total skins are available normally.

Honorable Mentions

Braum – 787 days

Braum hasn't gotten a skin since Pool Party Braum last June 2021. He's been a mainstay in games at all skill levels, and even made some appearances occasionally in professional games, so it really is baffling that he hasn't received a new skin in a while.

He currently has 7 available skins, with only one (Santa Braum) in the Legacy Vault. He has a great selection of skins, as the big-hearted Freljordian has donned many, many shields – a vault door, a pop tart, a steel chair, and a literal dragon's head – what's one more?

Corki – 765 days

Corki, Corki, Corki. The yordle on a flying machine was added even before League of Legends' full release, and he has amassed 10 skins since. Yes, half of it is either unavailable or in the Legacy Vault, but the more recent additions to his skin choices are certainly not bad.

His most recent is Astronaut Corki, but you still see a lot of players rocking the adorable Corgi Corki or the noisy (but cool) Arcade Corki. If we aren't going to get a new Corki skin, at least brush up his old skins. Ice Toboggan Corki on his splash art looks like he has fewer polygons than a single Illaoi tentacle.

Rammus – 765 days

There are only so many ways you can take a rolling armadillo in terms of skins, and Rammus is an aged champion. He has 10 total skins, five of which are either in the Legacy Vault, Rare, or can no longer be acquired. This leaves a majority of the player base to have five skins, which is not that large of a pool. He has received a visual update in recent years though, so his age does not show that much even on his default skin.
