The Great Steam Golem – Blitzcrank, is a huge robot created by a scientist called Viktor, in the nation of Zaun. Blitzcrank adapted and became self-aware. He started interacting with the residents and learned more about his surroundings, becoming almost like a living being. Blitzcrank eventually sought out to help people and improve his own body for the sake of others.
Blitzcrank is a champion in League of Legends that is commonly picked in the Support role. Although some players like to build him as a mage, he works better being a tank. Blitzcrank has plenty of Crowd Control in his abilities. His primary ability is his hook which pulls champions out of their position. This alone can always guarantee a kill for a good team.

His W makes Blitzcrank shine a yellow aura as the music starts to play for a short duration.

Both of these skins are a variety of each other. They both have the same animation and same sound effects. Particle colors are the only difference. Unlike prestige skins, there is no way to tell which one is better; it all depends on personal preference.

If Blitzcrank were made in Piltover, then he would probably look as he does in this skin. His design is much neater, and his body is golden mixed with a few dark-colored pieces. His back has two large pipes filled with liquid and a crystal inside.
His Mana Barrier is a passive that generates a golden crystalized shield to protect his solid body. His Q detaches his right arm, which is a significant magnetic hand, by launching it towards an enemy, then attaching it back using his magnetic powers.

His E generates a cyan electrical field around his hands. His R explodes his stored core energy in colors matching his aesthetics.

Futuristic Blitzcrank. His design is very similar to those from the game “Portal.” His body consists of large steel pieces and two big hands. In the center is a large blue core that channels energy through his body. And his face is a small black monitor with eyes on it.
His Q shoots his grappling arm in a direction, leaving a blue trail behind with small negative signs. If an enemy is hit by it, he will be instantly grabbed, leaving positive red signs behind. His W levitates Blitzcrank off the ground and generates blue energy to lift him.

Although his appearance is blue-themed, we can see his yellow face under his helmet.
Blitzcrank launches his black gauntlet with spring then pulls it back using his Q. His W increases his speed and starts his police alarm; his red and blue lights start flashing and blinking like a police car.

8. Piltover Custom Blitzcrank
- Released: March 7th, 2011
- Price: 1350 RP
For a price of an Epic skin, Piltover Custom Blitzcrank fails to deliver good expectations. Perhaps it is because the skin is over 10 years old. Nonetheless, it does have some pretty good aspects. Blitzcrank is a robot working on the front engine of a car. His arms have flaming paint on them, demonstrating that he is a racing car.
His passive creates a blue mana barrier as a shield. His Q fires his rocket grabber; if his big yellow hand hits a target, it will pull him back to Blitzcrank. His W is the most noticeable feature of this skin. Activating it causes his engine to overload, pipes on his back create smoke and flames, and he uses his car wheel to speed up, making him sound like a racing car. His E and R use a blue electrical field.
9. Not Blitzcrank
- Released: October 19th, 2011
- Price: 975 RP
More of a humorous skin than an epic one. Not Blitzcrank disguise him in a human suit and a funny-shaped mask. You can find him wearing a pair of glasses attached to a big nose and a huge mustache underneath it.
Although this skin doesn’t bring any new particles or animations, it is still loved by many Blitzcrank players. His Passive creates a blue mana shield when he gets low on health. His Q sends his rocket grabber in a direction.
His fists are covered with black gloves. His W overdrive Blitzcrank, increasing his movement speed and leaving a blue trail behind him. The strong breeze of wind will blow against his red tie, hinting at his fast speed. His E overcharges his fists with electrical power. Lastly, his ultimate set off his blue static field in a large area.
10. Boom Boom Blitzcrank
- Released: August 29th, 2010
- Price: 520 RP
Blitzcrank is a strong boxer, mainly because he is made out of hard steel. His body is silver and black. His hands are big red boxer gloves, and one of his eyes is marked in purple to imitate a bruised wrestler.

- Price: 520 RP
Blitzcrank is in a football match! And he is the goalkeeper of the Riot team. He is dressed in a big white T-shirt that has Riot’s company name on it. His right eye is red and smaller than his blue left eye. He is also wearing sports shoes to fit his aesthetics. Considering his big size and his large hands, he is the perfect goalkeeper.
Mana Barrier is a blue transparent shield that is activated after taking a certain amount of damage. Blitzcrank’s fists are wearing black gloves with a symbol on their center. Blitzcrank’s W makes him run faster.

12. Rusty Blitzcrank
- Released: November 20th, 2009
- Price: 520 RP
Probably the worst skin released for Blitzcrank. It doesn’t deliver any new animation, any new particles, or any new accessories for costumes. Instead, it is just a rusty version of how Blitzcrank originally looked. His eyes are reddish, which hints at his old body.
Blitzcrank generates a blue shield around himself after getting below 30% health. His Q fires his rusty right hand in a direction. Target hit will be pulled by his rusty black spring. His W begins his overdrive, which is surprisingly still functional.
Blitzcrank would start moving faster as a huge amount of smoke would start coming from his pipes until he exhausted his core. His E creates an electrical field around his fists. His ultimate strikes a lightning bolt to enemies hit by Blitzcrank as it’s passive. Activating it will erupt a blue static field.
