Gnar's Passive
While in Mini Gnar form, he gains 0-20 bonus movement speed (depending on level), 0-100 attack range (depending on level), attack speed and attack speed growth.

Mini Gnar generates 4 / 7 / 11 Rage over 2 seconds upon dealing or receiving damage (at level 1/6/11). Against non-champions, basic attacks and Boomerang Throw instantly generate 0.5 / 0.875 / 1.375 Rage (depending on level). Against champions, Boomerang Throw instantly generate 1 / 1.75 / 2.75 Rage (depending on level), and basic attacks instantly generate 2 / 3.5 / 5.5 Rage (depending on level). Boomerang Throw can only generate Rage once per cast, and grants Rage based on the first enemy hit. Gnar's Rage decays if he has not dealt or taken damage in the last 13 seconds.

At maximum Rage, casting an ability or after 4 seconds will transform him into Mega Gnar for 15 seconds, during which Gnar's Rage depletes. Afterwards Gnar returns to Mini Gnar and is too tired to generate Rage for 15 seconds. Gnar retains his current percentage health when he returns to Mini Gnar.

Mega Gnar has different abilities, although they share Mini Gnar's ability cooldowns. While in Mega Gnar form, he loses all Mini Gnar's buffs and instead has increased base AD, health, armor and magic resistance. Gnar restores health equal to the increase.
