League of Legends releases skins every two weeks. Some skins are surprises, while others have been announced by Riot ahead of time. Other skins are also kept a secret, but data miners and leakers always find a way to give us the information we seek. Which LoL skin leaks are true and which are fake? Let's check it out.
So, let's check out which LoL skins have been leaked for 2022 already, and which skin leaks were actually accurate by the infamous leakers in the League of Legends community. If you don't want to potentially be spoiled... why are you even here?
What Skins Have Been Leaked in 2022?
There are quite a few skins where information has already trickled through to players. Sure, things like Pussy Shooter Kai'Sa make their way to Twitter every once in a while. Sure, Bluest Blue Taliyah might sound nice, but is that really the long-awaited Taliyah skin we want?
- Skin Leaks? Well, sure, but I want to see the newest skin in HD. That's why you should pick up this Philips Monitor to see all the skin textures.
So let's ignore all the troll .txt files and images of notepad and check out which skins have been leaked by reputable sources where we know that information could be true.
New Spirit Blossom Skins Leaked
According to Data miner Julex_Gameplays we're going to be getting some brand-new Bewitching skins. Yes, you might have thought that the Halloween skins for 2022 are the Fright Night skins, but it seems that Riot still has some Bewitching skins ready. Can't have Halloween without sexy witches, am I right?
- Bewitching LeBlanc
- Bewitching Cassiopeia
- Bewitching Senna
- Bewitching Neeko
- Bewitching Anivia
Oh, and if we're already on the topic of Halloween skins, Anivia better get a giant bat skin.
Multiple Empyrean Skins Planned
According to leaker BigBadBear, it seems like we could be getting multiple skins for the Empyrean skin line. Thus far only K'Sante has been confirmed by Riot though, with the release of the information by Riot and Lil Nas X. We know K'Sante will release with a prestige skin, but according to BigBadBear we could be getting 7 Empyrean skins.
Mecha Skins Leaked
In the most recent splash art for Worlds Azir just ahead of the 2022 League of Legends World Championship. In the back of the splash we can see Thresh and with the some emotes and icons being revealed for Worlds 2022 rewards, two very curious emotes were reveiled which could indicate that more mecha skins are on the horizon.
- Mecha Thresh
- Mecha Twisted Fate
- Mecha Rell
Rell did just receive her Star Guardian skin so we aren't too sure if she is going to get another skin so soon, but as someone who enjoys Rell... I wouldn't be opposed to it.
Return of Sport Skins in 2022
It's the year 2022 which means that the second biggest Sporting event in the World is taking place which is the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Sure, the hype has died down due to the location and all the human rights violations surrounding this event, but we know that when it's time for kickoff most soccer fans won't give a single sh*t and still watch the event.
In 2010, 2014 and 2018, Riot released 'Soccer Cup' skins so it is likely we will get some soccer skins once again this year, but who is going to join Chaos FC and Order United? That hasn't been revealed yet.
New Skin Line - Neon Inferno
It was also leaked that a whole new skin line called Neon Inferno will hit the rift ahead of the 2022 League of Legends World Championship. There is little information regarding this skin line, but we can estimate that champions like Urgot or Kennen could receive skins since neither has gotten a skin in 2022 yet.
What this skin line will also look like is still up in the air. What would you like to see from Neon Inferno? I could imagine a cyberpunk future sort of similar to cyberpop but with more grunge. That's just my estimate though.
According to BigBadBead the champion on the receiving end of a legendary Neon Inferno skin wis going to be Pyke. Just a few months after he got his Ashen Knight skin he will be getting another new skin! Champions like Ornn can only dream...
Neon Inferno Prestige Skin Leaked
The next new skin line Riot will release is called Neon Inferno and according to leakers the next prestige skin has been revealed already. Jhin will be getting a prestige skin in this neo-future sci-fi skin line.
Odyssey Skin Leaks
BigBadBear recently released a video in which he talks about a Chinese leaker revealing new skins coming to League of Legends in 2022. BigBadBear did state that the Chinese leaker had been wrong before, so we should take these leaks with a grain of salt, but it seems like Odyssey skins will make a comeback this year.
One of the champions named to be getting an Odyssey skin in 2022 is none other than Renekton himself. This is just a leak and could be wrong, but let's go for it, because Odyssey skins are amazing.
- Odyssey Renekton
Conqueror Skin Leaked
One more skin has been leaked by BigBadBear on YouTube which is a potential new Conqueror skin for an unnamed champion. Now, who would fit the bill for such a skin?
Fiddlesticks is still waiting for his skin from 2021 and Rell is also in desperate need for a new skin. She hasn't gotten one since her release back in December 2020.
Confirmed League of Legends Skin Leaks
LoL Worlds Skin Confirmed
For the 2022 League of Legends World Championship we've got a special skin for all of you and that skin is none other than the one for Azir. Could the skin splash art also be teasing a new skin line as well...?
Spirit Blossom Return in Patch 12.19
Now one of the biggest surprises of the year has got to be the return of the Spirit Blossom skins. In total we are getting 10 new skins and my personal bank account is going to go bankrupt because three of my main champions are getting skins in this event.
- Sett, the Spirit of Challenge
- Aphelios, the Twin Spirits of Night
- Syndra, the Spirit of Freedom
- Evelynn, the Spirit of Love
- Master Yi, the Spirit of Legacy
- Prestige Spirit Blossom Master Yi
- Tristana, the Spirit of Chance
- Soraka, the Spirit of Pity
- Darius, the Spirit of War
- Yorick, the Spirit of Ruin
Now if these skins don't look amazing then you've got no taste. These are unique and fun skins and work so well.
Fright Night Skins in Patch 12.18
The Fright Night skins have made their debut in LoL Patch 12.18 and they look incredible. The art is great, the champion choices work wonders and overall these skins have a true gothic feel that no one could have imagined. So kudos to the skins team these are incredible!
- Fright Night Annie
- Fright Night Trundle
- Fright Night Nautilus
- Fright Night Renata Glasc
- Fright Night Urgot
- Fright Night Draven
Steel Valkyrie Skins in Patch 12.16
Riot just released the pictures of the upcoming Steel Valkyrie skins that will hit the rift in League of Legends Patch 12.16. Sure, we already got one skin in this universe with the release of Renata Glasc, but now more champions are joining the fight.
- Cyber Halo Janna
- Cyber Halo Janna Prestige Edition
- Armored Titan Nasus
- Strike Paladin Lucian
- Strike Commander Camille
Steel Legion and Eternum Join Steel Valkyries and Dreadnova
Riot has also decided that Steel Valkyries, Eternum, Steel Legion and Dreadnova all play in the same universe. This means that there will be more skins added into this exact skin world, just as leakers had predicted.
Monster Tamer Skins in Patch 12.15
We knew that the Monster Tamer skins were going to be coming in 2022, but none thought that these would be the champions to receive skins, right? Most thought Ezreal and Janna would don the Pokémon skins, but it seems Riot has taken a completely different approach with the champions they chose for this skin line.
- Monster Tamer Veigar
- Monster tamer Lulu
- Monster Tamer Kog'Maw
Star Guardian Skins in Patch 12.14
The Star Guardian event is the biggest event of the summer in League of Legends and will last 10-weeks and span over multiple Riot IPs. So, of course, in LoL Patch 12.14 even more skins are going to be released for this event. A second legendary is part of the group, as well as another prestige skin.
- Star Guardian Akali
- Star Guardian Taliyah
- Star Guardian Quinn
- Star Guardian Rell
- Star Guardian Syndra Prestige Edition
- Star Nemesis Morgana
Star Guardian Skins in Patch 12.13
A bunch of Star Guardian skins have been confirmed by Riot already. Five champion skins have been revealed and they will be making their way onto the rift in League of Legends Patch 12.13, along with the newest champion Nilah
- Star Guardian Nilah
- Star Guardian Kai'Sa - Legendary skin
- Star Guardian Ekko
- Star Guardian Ekko Prestige Edition
- Star Guardian Sona
- Star Nemesis Fiddlesticks
Next Ashen Knight Skin Leaked
If you're excited for more mythic content after playing with your brand new Ashen Knight Pyke skin, then you've got reason to be hyped. The next mythic skin will release in Patch 12.12 when the mythic store rotates. So, who will be the next Ashen Knigth skin holder?
- Ashen Knight Pantheon
This skin concept fits perfectly with Pantheon and from what we've seen, this skin will be fire. Players should also expect an icon, border and everything else they received for Pyke with the unveiling of Ashen Knight Pantheon.
Snow Moon Skin Leaks
BigBadBear just revealed the new Snow Moon Skin line in one of his tweets. You can check the skins out down below. 3 champs will be part of this new skin line:
- Snow Moon Kayn
- Snow Moon Caitlyn
- Snow Moon Illaoi
Seems Illaoi is finally getting some love, but the best skin out of the bunch has to go to Kayn. He just looks insane.
Confirmed: Ocean Song in Patch 12.11
We thought we would be getting some new Pool Party skins this year, but instead, we will get a whole new Ocean Song skin line. This is a fun skin line with the following champions:
- Ocean Song Seraphine
- Ocean Song Seraphine Prestige
- Ocean Song Nidalee
- Ocean Song Yone
- Ocean Song Zeri
- Ocean Song Ashe
Confirmed: Battle Boss Bel'Veth in Patch 12.11
The release skin for Bel'Veth has also been confirmed, and she will be getting a Battle Boss skin upon release. Actually, the skin is kind of fitting and look amazing.

Confirmed: EDG Worlds Skins in Patch 12.9

Confirmed EDG Skins
- EDG Graves
- EDG Viego
- EDG Zoe
- EDG Aphelios

Can You Believe All Skin Leaks?
You'll have to take all the information on champions and skins here with a grain of salt. These are leaks and are subject to change. Yes, we have video evidence of a few leaks and Riot has stated that High Noon and Star Guardian skins will be making a return this year, but they never specified when or which champions.
Therefore, make sure not to believe everything you read online, or you might truly believe Pussy Shooter Caitlyn is a real thing.
