Jinx; Champion's lore has no given motivation other than "she wuz bored, lol". Looks like a feeble anorexic mixed with a crack addict. Moves with the speed of a crack addict. Unnaturally white skin tone without being albino. Or is she? her eyes seem red in the splash art. Hard to tell. Can't tell if bipolar or trying to hard.

Thresh; My only gripe with his design is the chain scythe ma-jigger instead of an actual scythe.

Zed; His weapons are weird and probably very inconvenient for a ninja. They make very loud Wolverine-esque SNIKT noise and you know, what if they were to jam and not extend?

Vi; Rito likes playing up the butch stereotype with her. Much like Jinx her lore gives very poor reasoning for any of her choices. A career criminal just suddenly wishes to do the right thing all the time but still wants to do the wrong thing (namely, be a ***** to Caitlyn)? Nah brah. Also GMD has pointed out her random tutu piece on her armor. Wtf is that.

Yo man...I have constantly said that Jinx's passive on her Q with the mini gun should reset once it times out and not count down.
I main...the entire top lane.
I miss: Tank Rengar top, AD Nidalee, Mash Keyboard Ryze...the OPs

This is a gameplay issue, not a design issue. Design being anything about their appearance, quirks, voice acting, personality and lore.

@MissMaw, chain scythe ma-jigger fits better.

I like Jinx for the most part! but her personality (though it's good for a few laughs) is extremely one dimensional and unoriginal. Yeah, they also don't give a good reason for her to join the League. I also don't get how she could lift such heavy weapons. Fishbones should probably be scaled down or something.

Well, technically gameplay is part of the design. Ie. An archer being an all-in champion would be poor design

The crack makes her faster AND stronger.
