  • We, Zed, Sona and Garen were attacked by a hitman.
    • After Vi was shot, her champion icon on her League of Legends website page and the champion roster were updated to a gif with what appears to be energy floating from her gauntlets.

Development

  • Vi was conceived as a girl on skates named Ruby, but she slipped in and out of development for two years before becoming the Piltoven Watcher. [1]
  • Originally, his gauntlets were much darker and had a series of dents and dings. Thematically this made sense as they would likely be dirty and slammed given the number of doors Vi slammed on on a daily basis. However, the reading in the game was terrible. Muted colors did not appear from the background, and the dents looked like visual glitches at game level. So for the release, the dents were removed and the colors brightened, causing Vi to start looking significantly better as a result. [2]

Relationships

  • I saw and Jinx are often shipped by the community as sisters. The reference to this in Jinx's release was his quote, "Do you think I am crazy? You should see my sister. "There was never any implication that the sister was Vi, players equated Jinx's antagonization of Vi specifically as "sister bonding".
    • By the way, Jinx only antagonized Vi specifically on English-speaking servers. Other servers showed him to antagonize other champions, such as Lucian.
    • The grocer Lyte then says to 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 the rumors she has heard from players (like the rumor she heard from players that Lux y Ezreal were dating, which Lux herself later denied after hearing the rumor.)
    • However, there is a significant indication that the couple grew up together. With Vi currently suffering from amnesia, Jinx has taken it upon herself to try to activate her memories.
    • In an interview with Ghostcrawler, he mentioned that Jinx and Vi are "sisters", but later confirmed that he was simply stating that what he "thought" was true, and that the narrative team was saying 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.
  • Vi doesn't remember anything from her early childhood, not even her real name ('Vi' comes from the tattoo on her cheek)
  • Ekko remembers Vi before going to Piltover.
  • Caitlyn y Vi are law enforcement partners and collectively known as The Best of Piltover.
    • Have been chasing Jinx, who is now a dangerous criminal who has been wreaking havoc for seemingly no reason.
    • They managed to stop an upheaval caused by Urgot and his followers caught him and then put him in an isolated prison on the island.
      • Vi nearly killed Urgot due to the chaos and casualties he caused, including the death of Roe, a girl from Vi's childhood.
      • The duo then fight him again when his followers attempt to free him from his prison.
  • Camille may be responsible for converting I saw in an orphan.
