The ultimate predator‘s many things: methodical, determined, and unrelenting. Meet Rengar, the Pridestalker, one of the most-feared hunters in all of Valoran, whether he’s slashing his way through foes or leaping from the shadows of the brush to take enemies by surprise. Rengar’s monstrous, most-sought prize, however, remains at large, missing from the Pridestalker’s impressive trophy wall.






  • Unseen Predator (Passive): While in brush or stealth, Rengar will leap at the target when using his basic attack. Rengar builds 1 Ferocity with each ability he uses on enemies. When reaching 5 Ferocity, Rengar's next ability becomes empowered, granting it a bonus effect.


  • Savagery: Rengar's next basic attack deals bonus damage and grants him increased Attack Speed for a short duration.
    - Ferocity Bonus: Rengar deals enhanced damage and his Attack Speed bonus increases.


  • Battle Roar: Rengar lets out a battle roar, damaging enemies and gaining bonus Armor and Magic Resist for a short duration.
    - Ferocity Bonus: Rengar heals himself for a large amount.


  • Bola Strike: Rengar throws a bola at his target, slowing them for a short duration.
    - Ferocity Bonus: Rengar roots the target.


  • Unleashed Power (Ultimate): Rengar activates his predatory instincts, stealthing and revealing all enemy champions in a large radius around him. He gains Movement Speed and rapidly generates Ferocity while stealthed.

As a top-laner or jungler, Rengar’s brutal strikes and roars tear through his enemies. When you use any of his abilities on an enemy, you generate a point of Ferocity. Once you’ve stored five Ferocity points, Rengar’s skills become available instantly and the next skill activated gains a powerful new secondary effect. Players will have to strategically manage their Ferocity, activating the appropriate ability for each precarious situation. Rengar’s passive also grants his auto attack a leap when used from the brush or while invisible, giving this apex predator immense ganking potential from hiding.

Rengar’s ultimate ability, Thrill of the Hunt, grants him invisibility, extra movement speed and Ferocity points. The true power behind Rengar’s ultimate is his visibility of enemies under the fog of war. Rengar enters an all-consuming hunting mode, allowing him to see enemy locations and their hearts beating faster and louder as he closes in.

Bonetooth Necklace:





+10 Attack Damage

Passive: +2 attack damage per level
UNIQUE: Rengar collects trophies when killing Champions, and gains bonus effects based on how many trophies he has. Kills and assists grant 1 trophy, and 1 trophy is lost on death.


  • 3 Trophies: +10 armor penetration, +5% cooldown reduction
  • 6 Trophies: +25 movement speed
  • 9 Trophies: Rengar's leap gains 150 bonus range.
  • 14 Trophies: Thrill of the Hunt's duration is increased by 3 seconds. Additionally, Rengar's next ability used after activating Thrill of the Hunt generates 1 bonus Ferocity.

No hunter would be whole without his trophies and Rengar is no stranger to collecting the prized remains of his downed prey. Playing as Rengar grants optional access to the Bonetooth Necklace, a unique store item that collects trophies as he racks up kills and assists. Slaying enemies will increase the power of the necklace and new bonuses unlock when trophy thresholds are met. You’re never forced to purchase or use the Bonetooth Necklace, but are rewarded for an aggressive playstyle if you choose to use it.


Lore: On every wall of his den, the trophy hunter Rengar mounts the heads, horns, claws, and fangs of the most lethal creatures in Valoran. Though his collection is extensive, he remains unsatisfied, tirelessly seeking greater game. He takes time with every kill, studying his prey, learning, and preparing himself for the next encounter with the one monster he never managed to defeat.

Rengar never knew his real parents, but was raised by a human who was revered as a legendary hunter. He was an ideal pupil, intently absorbing the lessons of his father, and improving them with his uncanny feral instincts. Before his mane had fully grown, Rengar set off on his own and claimed a wide territory for himself. Along its perimeter, he mounted the skulls of his slain prey - a warning to would-be aggressors. He thought undisputed reign of a region would fulfill him, but instead, he grew restless. No beasts in his domain proved challenging prey, and without formidable adversaries to push his limits, Rengar's spirit waned. He feared that no worthwhile game remained, that he would never again feel the thrill of the hunt. Just when things seemed their bleakest, he encountered the monster. It was a disturbing, alien thing, distinctly out of place in his world. It bore huge scything claws and devoured any animal that strayed across its path. Overzealous at the prospect of a challenge, Rengar ambushed the monster in haste. It far outclassed anything he'd hunted before. Their fight was savage, and each suffered crippling wounds. Rengar lost an eye, but the most grievous blow was to his pride. He had never before failed to make the kill. Worse yet, the severity of his injuries forced him to retreat. Over the following days, he hovered on the threshold between life and death. He was wracked with pain, but beneath it, he felt a glimmer of joy. The hunt was on. If such powerful beings existed in the world, he would find them, and stack their heads high. The monster, however, was a kill he wanted to savor. On his den's largest wall, he reserves a space for the beast's head, a trophy he swears will one day be the centerpiece of his collection.

"Prey on the weak and you will survive, prey on the strong and you will live."

-Rengar

Very awesome champion, he's my kind of guy. Seems to be a pretty strong jungler.
His signature item looks really neat.

That looks like an awesome item indeed, kind of like a better Sword of the Occult. Also good to see that after Viktor another champ already starts with an item.

It bothers me that he looks like Huntor from Dexter's Laboratory (Monkey) fused with a predator (Yautja).

Quoted:
Kills and assists grant 1 trophy, and 1 trophy is lost on death.
It should work just like Cho'Gath's feast or like Mejai/sword of the occult/leviathan. What I mean is, you should lose 1/3 of your stacks upon death. 1 is not enough AT ALL for the amount you gain for each teamfights. This +1/-1 concept will not work, simply because every Teamfight, Rengar will gain an additional 4 stacks minimum.

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

Well Huntor was pretty much a parody of Predator to begin with. I was totally like "hmm anthropomorphic lion hunter... seems familiar... Dexter's Lab!" when I read his bio though. ^_^ Glad someone else noticed.

Haha, yeah, brings back good memories though.
It's essentially Huntor with the claw/blade and the tentacle like hair from the predator.

A lot of Riot champions have art inspirations like this if you look carefully.
