How many champions are there in League of Legends?

As of September 16, 2022, League of Legends has a total of 161 champions to choose from.

If you are someone new, you will find that these champions are categorized into different classes. These classes are the foundation upon which the gameplay of League of Legends is based.

There are six different classes of champions in the game and here’s a rundown of all of them:

  • Assassins (they specialize in enemy lines to dispatch high-priority targets)
  • Fighters (they specialize in short-range combat and can both deal and survive damage)
  • Mages (they possess great reach and ability-based area of effect damage and crowd control)
  • Marksmen (they deal the most damage)
  • Supports (as the name suggests, they provide support to the Marksmen to get kills)
  • Tanks (they absorb the maximum amount of damage in exchange for powerful crowd control)

Let’s now take a look at the list of champions in the game.

Is there any way to play these champions for free?

While so many characters may seem daunting, League of Legends does give you a way to play (or try) some champions for free every week.

Every Tuesday, LoL brings a free champion rotation where you can play 16 free champions at no extra cost. You must remember that the characters featured in these rotations are entirely random and changes every week. Here are the characters that are featured in the free rotation this week.

Also, you won’t be able to use them in Ranked matches and are limited to Unranked matches only. The free rotation gives you a chance to test different characters and then decide whether you want to buy them in-game or not, considering the number of champions is huge.

So, there you have it – that’s everything you need to know on how many champions are there in League of Legends. For more about the game, be sure to check our other LoL tips and guides:
