A League of Legends player showed off an incredibly strange bug that caused Ahri to burrow underground, effectively turning her into Rek’Sai. 

Just like any game, League of Legends has seen its fair share of bugs. Things unexpectedly go wrong and something that should be possible happens – it’s not normally a big deal, but it can be quite entertaining.

Not long ago, a player shared an amusing bug with Lee Sin, which caused him to fly into space. The opposite seems to have happened now, as Ahri somehow managed to burrow underground, strangely copying Rek’Sai’s unique design.

Reddit user jhirakawa211 shared the weird glitch on January 27, and it’s quite a sight to behold. The normally flashy and extravagant nine-tailed fox burrowed underground after each attack, becoming just a colorful blob.

The players involved didn’t seem too bothered by the bug and were actually laughing as Ahri glided underground. She could still do everything normally, so the glitch was likely just a visual one, albeit fairly confusing.

Other Redditors absolutely loved the bug, with jokes and comments like “When I drink too much and I think I go to bed with an "Ahri", but I wake up next to a "Rek'sai" and “This is one of the funniest bugs I've seen” filling the thread.

User surgex even shared a similar bug they had had with Pantheon, where they similarly burrowed underground and would glide around the map, only popping out to attack.

It’s unknown what causes the bug, but it doesn’t seem to have a huge effect on the game. Although the burrowed champions may be a bit harder to click, they still have to pop out to attack and go back to their normal size.

Riot Games have not yet commented on the issue, and with how rare it seems to be, it may be a while until they get around to fixing it.
