Throughout the years of League’s lifespan, over 100 Champions were released on top of those original 40 the game shipped with. As is natural with any expansive roster, there’s a wide variety within it. Every Champion has something unique to it, but some share a few traits.
One trait that we’ll be looking at in this list is annoyance. It is a vague trait, but it is undoubtedly within the mind of every League of Legends player out there. This is the third of a five-list series that deals with annoying Champions in the game.
Be sure to check out our ADC, and Mid Lane lists to see how wild the game can truly get. The Jungle is one of the most complex and challenging roles in the game and is annoying to other roles by default. Some Champions, however, are way more annoying than others, and we’re here to check them out.
With that out of the way, let’s begin with our list.
(This list is in no particular order. You be the judge of who is more annoying.)
Zac is a Jungler that can achieve a massive amount of map presence. He is a constant threat to every part of the map and every player in the opposing team. Possessing a long-range spell that he can use to propel himself straight into the fight, Zac can cross great distances almost instantly.
This long-range makes him even more of a prowler since he does not require to be at the close range of the Lane/fight to be able to participate. He can use his E to jump across the terrain and engage multiple enemies while stunning them and dealing damage.
He is a great team fighter due to his AOE damage and CC, which can change the entire course of a fight. Zac can easily disrupt the entire enemy team and do tons of damage using his Ultimate. The pure annoyance factor comes from the fact that he is a menace. He is a constant threat, dangerous and lethal if he lands his E.
Zac is an old Champion and was released way back in 2013. Since then, he has passed many trials and tribulations. Riot changed him, reworked him, reverted the changes, etc. He was, as fits his character, experimented on severely. Thankfully he is now fully developed (hopefully) and remains an authentic, menacing Jungler that’s just as viable as the rest in the pre-Season.
Shaco can go invisible. That speaks for itself, really. It is insane how annoying this Champion can get. He can use his Q, sneak up behind you, and obliterate your entire health bar in the blink of an eye. But that’s not where the line is drawn. No, of course, this wouldn’t be a LeagueFeed list if it didn’t have some madness to it.
Shaco possesses his infamous Jack-in-the-Box and the clone Ultimate. He will ultimately drive you nuts to the point that you’ll lose track of what’s what. The boxes, if planted correctly, can catch any unsuspecting player off-guard. If he went AP, and in most cases, he will, the boxes do obscene amounts of damage. Too much for their looks and size.
The Ultimate is another thing that everyone hates. For some reason, despite it being sort of obvious, no one can figure out which one is the real Shaco. And if you happen to kill the wrong one, well, I’ve already explained the Boxes above.
Shaco does a ton of damage and does it efficiently. Using his stealth, he can stalk the map like an actual Assassin, and he turns League into a horror game. It is difficult to contain a good Shaco player, and there are many things you’ll have to do to stop him from getting fed.
He alone isn’t the topic of this article, and I won’t detail them right now. However, I recommend taking him for a ride in a couple of games to understand his mechanics. Knowing the enemy gives you a lot of leverage on them, so get to it.

Udyr is one of the most mobile Champions in League of Legends. He can, and will, run you down with his insane speed. He is one of those Champions that can unlock his Ultimate immediately if he wishes, i.e., he has no actual Ultimate. Udyr’s stances offer him unique effects and bonuses to his attacks.
His most annoying one? The E – bear mode. Udyr gets a burst of movement speed from the spell itself, alongside the passive bonus when he activates it. He will then proceed to run at lightning speed and stun any Champion that he hits. He won’t be able to stun the same Champion twice in a row but will have to wait a few seconds. The delay isn’t substantial, and Udyr has more or less a delayed stun-lock on his hands.
He can just shift into some other stances, do damage and then switch back to the bear and stun you again. Rinse and repeat, and you’ve got your bog-standard Udyr player. It’s insane how much this Champion can do with only his basic attacks and some bonuses.
Good Udyr players are true menaces to face, and it’s actually absurd how good he can get. I recommend you give Udyr a spin as he is also one of the more fun Champions in the game. However, I don’t guarantee you’ll get the best comments from your friends and the enemy team. ESPECIALLY the enemy team. But I mean, who cares about them anyways?
Kayn was, for a long time, the supreme leader of all Junglers in League of Legends. His permanent S+ tier spot was justified. Despite him falling off a little bit, Kayn remains a god in his profession and an annoying one at that. He is a constant pressure, threat, and menace that is hardly avoided by any means. Whatever you do, wherever you go – Kayn somehow finds his way there. And that is what makes him honestly mind-numbing to play against.
Kayn has some of the best Jungle clearing capabilities out there. It takes him no time to clear the full Jungle, and he can then move on to do whatever he desires. With a crap ton of damage and mobility paired with an incentive to fight Champions – Kayn sticks to the Lanes like glue.
At all times throughout the game, he will keep constant pressure on the Lanes until he unlocks the secondary forms. Once he gets that, he might relent a bit and focus on the objectives. But that largely depends on the form he picks up.
Both of the forms are wild in their own regard, and both will drive you nuts. The Shadow one will one-shot you, and the Red one is entirely immortal. Whichever he picks doesn’t matter for you. You’re still going to rage at him.
Kayn is a great Champion but one that drives crazy every single player that meets him. No matter how polished you are both as a person or player – you will cringe and rage at Kayn, he is the Teemo of the Jungle, and there are no two ways about it.

Rammus. His name alone should be enough to tell you everything about him. However, since this is a professional list, I’ll explain what I mean in a bit more detail. He is the ultimate anti-AD and anti-attacker Champion. He has all the tools required to suck up all of that damage and send it right back to you.
What else, you might ask. Well, he can move at 1000 movement speed and has an Ultimate that gets stronger as he is faster. Yes, a properly balanced Champion that completely makes sense and is reasonable. Thank you, Riot. You truly outdid yourselves.
On a serious note, Rammus can move blazingly fast, giving him a ton of capability to gank. He can quickly move in for an attack, crossing a great distance in no time. This, similarly to Zac, gives him a status of constant threat. He doesn’t need to be in the immediate range of the fight to reach it in time. He has other mechanics to mitigate this and mitigate he will.
As a Tank, he excels most when fighting AD Champions. He is basically a glorified Thornmail of a Champion and will send back all of the damage you give him. This makes him excruciatingly hard to kill, and the annoyance levels just go beyond reasoning.
Pair all of this with his Ultimate, and you’ve got some true mind-destroying stuff right there. I recommend you learn a lot about him before he does to you what every Rammus player does to me when I encounter them.
Vi is undoubtedly one of the most potent Bruisers in the game. In the Jungle, she finds the opportunity to efficiently move around the map and use her Bruiser abilities against the enemy team. Her ganking potential rivals that of Zac, and her presence is near-constant.
Her low cooldowns, serious damage, and severe CC make for some exciting gameplay. If you’re playing with or as her, that is. If you’re up against this monstrosity of a Jungler, you’re up for a world of pain. Vi will persistently pressure you and your allies, especially your Jungler. He will be so counter jungled that it’s not even a joke at this point. Prepare to lose your objectives if you don’t coordinate well with the rest of your team to stop Vi.
As for team fighting and other mechanics, Vi excels there as well. Her Q can hit multiple opponents simultaneously, and her Ultimate is an infamous CC spell that can also knock up multiple enemies. With the right build, Vi morphs into an actual Assassin. It will take her no more than a few hits and spells to kill you on the spot.
She has so much damage that I don’t think she’s working as intended. But, then again, what is working as intended in this day and age? I recommend you play Vi and stick to her since she is currently one of the best Junglers out there. I’ve made a Jungle path guide for Vi, so check it out to learn more about the best ways to play her.
1. Master Yi
Master Yi is one of the oldest Champions in League of Legends. His age often shows through the basicness of his kit. Despite being reworked so many years ago, he has retained all of the early League of Legends’ simple mechanics. This simplicity is not a bad thing – on the contrary, it makes Yi extremely powerful.
He can be mastered by just about any skill level in the game. It takes no effort to learn nor play Yi, and he can dominate games like no other Champion in the game. It’s obscene how many times I’ve seen Yi make a Pentakill, singlehandedly, without the help of an ally. He is super annoying if he gets fed and is almost impossible to deal with. If he goes through your CC, it’s game over, as there’s no way to kill him once he starts slicing you with his sword.
Master Yi truly encompasses everything his samurai nature stands for: speed, power and murderous intent. He is a competent and aggressive swordsman who can invite anyone to a duel, often besting them without breaking a sweat. Though his ganks might not be as good as some of the others on the list, his fighting reigns supreme.
I recommend Yi to everyone, since everyone can play him. He might be annoying, you might get some hate mail, but it’s all going to be worth it in the end.
