I've been mulling over this for a while now, and I know that there were missed opportunities with Vayne and a joke for her glasses/goggles. As such I'd like to bring up an opportunity for a themed non direct lore interaction that seems to have been overlooked between Vayne and Zed.

Vayne has a Taunt in which she states "hitting me is like boxing with shadows." Vayne also aligns herself with "good" and in her lore it states that she seeked to hunt those lost to the darkness (this can be interpreted as those who are evil, or in the shadows as well).

Now, given this fact, I would like to point out that Zed is THE "Master of Shadows". He essentially encompasses darkness, and can be seen as an evil character in league lore.

This would have been (note: still is) a GREAT opportunity to give them an interaction of some kind when in the vicinity of each other. Whether it be a verbal interaction when attacking each other, or simply a new animation/verbal interaction for their joke/taunts, I feel that it would just give it that extra bit of awesome that Riot tends to put out.

TLDR: Vayne hunts the darkness and claims that "hitting her is like boxing with shadows" while Zed is the master of shadows and is essentially the darkness. They should have an interaction.

If you support this idea, please head over to the main forums, upvote and comment your support!

I don't think so. Zed isn't necessary evil; he just had a different way of thinking than other ninjas.

"Tradition is the corpse of wisdom"
"Do not fear the shrouded path"
"Secrets kept are weapons wasted"
"No technique is forbidden"

None of this suggest Zed is about that kind of evil Vayne is after.

...
Quoted:
The old man implored Zed to enter the temple, destroy the box, and lead his followers to balance. The dark ninja followed the master inside. Moments later, the assembled ninjas heard Zed cry out in pain. Mysteriously, he emerged unscathed, and threw the severed head of the master at Shen's feet. Screaming in rage, Zed commanded his followers to slaughter the master's students and seize the box.

That day, the old ninja order fell. Though many students died, some escaped thanks to Shen's heroic efforts. Now the temple is a dark training ground for the Order of the Shadow. Zed rules as the Order's master, and his edict is simple: perfect one's technique, and kill all ninjas who refuse to embrace the shadows.


In the lore, as perceived by Shen and crew he is evil. If it was simply another kind of thinking, why kill the entirety of his previous master's students? It even says he will "kill all ninjas who refuse to embrace the shadows".

It's a matter of point of view.

And thus Zed may not see himself as evil, however, Vayne may think differently.
I think you're focusing too much on the evil when the focus was on shadows and darkness.

Well, judging from Vayne's lore, I'd say the kind of things she's hunting would be more from the Shadow Isles or Warwick, Vladimir, etc.
