Relationships

  • Jinx and I saw they are often shipped by the community as sisters. The reference to this in Jinx's release was his quote, "Do you think Am I crazy? You should see my sister. "There was never any implication that the sister was Vi, the players equated Vi and Jinx's antagonization specifically as "sister bonding".
    • Incidentally, Jinx only faced Vi specifically on the English-speaking servers. Other servers showed him to antagonize other champions, such as Lucian.
    • The grocer Lyte then tells Vi, "You look like your sister! Er, wait, I'm not supposed to talk about that ...". This could be a confirmation that Vi has a sister, but it could also be an example of Lyte repeating rumors she's heard from players (like the rumor she heard from players that Lux and Ezreal were dating, that Lux herself later denied after hearing the rumor for herself).
    • In an interview with Ghostcrawler, he mentioned that Jinx and Vi are "sisters", but later confirmed that he was simply saying what he thought to be true, and that the narrative team said otherwise.
      • With the release of the Arcane trailer, it has been confirmed that Vi and Jinx are sisters. It is unclear if they are sisters related by blood.
  • Ekko remembers Jinx from before she went crazy ("I I had a love ... until he started talking with the gun ")
  • Jinx constantly wants to hug Ziggs but he's quite terrified of her.
    • Jinx believes that he is a figment of his imagination, more specifically, his conscience.
