Lee Sin Skins Guide

Latest posts by Fredrick Ochami (see all)

Lee Sin is a warrior monk who lost his sight a long time ago. He is an Ionian martial artist who protects his homeland from those who would ruin its sacred balance.

Lee Sin is among the first 6 League of Legends champions to be designed. As it happens, he is also the second champion in the game to have over 4 abilities. This can make playing him tricky, especially since his kit is so mobile.

In fact, newer players will find that they can die if they misuse his Q ability. However, they can quickly assassinate an enemy champion and escape before receiving fatal damage if they use it well. Gamers have termed this dive as “Lee Sin-drome.”

Lee Sin is a high-risk, high-reward champion, so it is best to take your time to learn his complete kit before playing Ranked with him. Otherwise, chances are you will feed the enemy whenever you gank a lane.

The Bottom Line

Lee Sin has 13 skins that change his look in exciting ways. They range from simple cosmetic changes to complete visual reinventions.

Storm Dragon Lee Sin is the best Lee Sin skin so far in the game. It turns him into a Dragonmancer who can summon the Storm Dragon’s abilities. His skin is not the only one that gets a visual update: his emotes and skills all have a dragon-imbued look.

However, you will need to pay a premium for Storm Dragon Lee Sin. It costs 1820 RP, making it among the costliest skins in League of Legends.

If you are looking for a more affordable skin that still has other players complimenting you, try Muay Thai Lee Sin. This favorite skin transforms Lee Sin into a Muay Thai fighter. Although it might look simple at first glance, the developers and designers put a lot of work into it.

There is a range of other skins that you might like more than these. Just read through them below, and hopefully, you will find something that fits.

Default Lee Sin

Lee Sin has wrapped his eyes with a red cloth in his default skin. He wears white hand wraps, leg wraps, black pants, and his only hair is a long ponytail. His torso and arms also have tattoos. His dance move refers to Shaolin Soccer (Watch that movie if you have not; it is a masterpiece). You can see the resemblance below.

Traditional Lee Skin

Price: 520 RP

Release Date: April 1st, 2011

Skin Lore

Traditional Skins are based on the initial concepts of League of Legends champions before they were reworked. Only a handful of champions have Traditional skins: Lee Sin, Karma, Trundle, and Sejuani.

Appearance and Effects

Traditional Lee Sin wears fighting shorts with wrist and ankle wraps. He has tattoos that lead from his shoulders to his elbows. Additionally, his hair completely masks his face, including his eyes.

When he first casts Q, red rings appear around his wrists.

How To Get It

You would get this skin free if you played League of Legends and owned Lee Sin before his rework.

You can get it on the Store for 520 RP—making this the cheapest Lee Sin skin.

Of course, you can also unlock it through Loot, but that is a gamble I would not take.


Traditional Lee Sin has no Chromas.

Acolyte Lee Sin

Price: 750 RP

Release Date: April 1st, 2011

Skin Lore

There is not much lore to this skin. Lee Sin is basically dressed up as a monastery monk.

Appearance and Effects

Acolyte Lee Sin wears a predominantly red top and hood, with black pants, boots, and hand wraps.

In my book, besides the costume he wears, there is not much more to this skin, which makes it a tad disappointing.

How To Get It

Acolyte Lee Sin costs 750 RP, which is just under $6. I would only recommend getting this skin during a sale instead of buying it at the total price.


Acolyte Lee Sin does not have Chromas.

Dragon Fist Lee Sin

Price: 975 RP

Release Date: January 10th, 2012

Skin Lore

Lunar Revel skins are inspired by the Lunar New Year, popular in Asian countries like China, Korea, and Vietnam. There have been new skins every year from 2011 to 2021. In 2012, the Dragon was the zodiac animal. Three champions had dragon-related skins: Dragon Fist Lee Sin, Jade Dragon Wukong, and Dragonblade Talon.

According to Lunar Revel lore, Dragon Fist Lee Sin is a world-renowned martial artist who prefers training in private. According to rumors, his punches contain the fiery fury of a dragon.

Appearance and Effects

Dragon Fist Lee Sin wears a white top with an orange dragon imprint at the back, brown pants, white socks, and shoes. He also wears sunglasses that hide his eyes. His overall look is reminiscent of the legendary Bruce Lee. You could argue that this skin pays homage to him, especially in Enter The Dragon.

Mind, though, that the actual skin is different from the splash art, which has a glowing dragon on his shirt.

How To Get It

You can buy this Lee Sin skin at the Store for 975 RP, which is around $7. Additionally, you can unlock Dragon Fist Lee Sin through Loot if you are fortunate.


Dragon Fist Lee Sin has 8 different Chromas: Blue, Black, Emerald, Pearl, Yellow, Sapphire, Ruby, and Rose Quartz.

The Chromas, thankfully, are not just mere cosmetic changes. They do more than just change the colors of his hair, glasses, and clothes. They also change the patterns of his top, pants, socks—he does not wear socks in some Chromas—and more.

The Yellow Chroma is my personal favorite because it is pretty familiar to Bruce Lee’s iconic yellow jumpsuit in The Game of Death. Dragon Fist Lee Sin Chromas are also unique because they are the first skin-based Chromas to be released in League of Legends.

Muay Thai Lee Sin

Price: 975 RP

Release Date: July 24th, 2012

Skin Lore

Wonders of the World is an alternate universe where each champion represents the culture of a real-world country.

If the name did not give it away, Muay Thai Lee Sin represents Thailand and celebrates their Muay Thai fighters. According to the game’s lore, he has mastered this fighting style, called “the art of eight limbs.” As a result, he is now among its greatest fighters.

The skin came out in time to celebrate the launch of the Thai server for League of Legends.

Appearance and Effects

The skin is relatively simple: Lee Sin wears blue fighting shorts with red edges, he has rope bands around his arms and white ankle guards. He has also covered his eyes with a red cloth.

His animations—movement, recall, dancing, critical hits, and auto attacks—have changed to emulate a Muay Thai style. In fact, his dance mimics Tony Jaa in Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior.

This skin is deceptively simple, but a love of love went into it. So, it is no surprise that many Lee Sin mains love it.

How To Get It

If you can afford it and love playing Lee Sin, this skin is a steal at 975 RP.


Sadly, Muay Thai Lee Sin does not have Chromas.

Pool Party Lee Sin

Price: 975 RP

Release Date: September 9th, 2013

Skin Lore

Sun. Sand. Partying. Dipping your feet into a refreshingly cool pool.

This is what the Pool Party Universe is all about.

It celebrates summer and equips its champions with laid-back summer clothes that will make you wish summer could last all year long.

The skins are divided into Lifeguards (like Renekton and Taric) and Partygoers (over 20 other champions, including Lee Sin). Lee Sin is a reveler who appreciates a strong coconut drink and enjoys the waves, the feel of the sun on his skin, and the sand under his feet.

Appearance and Effects

Pool Party Lee Sin wears an open beach shirt, beach shorts, slippers, a sun visor, a garland, and sunglasses. He rocks a goatee and carries a coconut drink in one hand.

Pool Party Lee Sin throws a coconut drink instead of the usual sonic wave when he first casts his Q ability. And when he recalls, he throws away his drink as a palm tree appears. He kicks the tree, and another drink drops onto his hand. He then leans against the tree and takes a sip.

How To Get It

Pool Party Lee Sin can be yours for 975 RP, which is a fair price.


There are no Chromas on Pool Party Lee Sin.

SKT T1 Lee Sin

Price: 750 RP (When Available)

Release Date: May 4th, 2014

Skin Lore

In League of Legends, World Championship skins celebrate the game’s biggest esports tournament of the year. Winning teams usually receive skins based on the champions they selected.

SKT T1 is among the most successful teams in the World Championship. They have won in three years: 2013, 2015, and 2016. So, there are 3 sets of skins for them.

SKT T1 Lee Sin honors Bengi’s Lee Sin performance in the 2013 World Championship.

Appearance and Effects

His clothes are inspired by the SKT T1 uniform during the World Championship: it is predominantly red, with the team’s logo at the back. He also wears a beanie, a headset, and sunglasses.

How To Get It

This is a Legacy Skin, so you cannot currently buy it from the Store. Instead, you will have to wait for the Legacy Vault to reopen—which is not a set date, so it can be weeks, months, or even years away.

Alternatively, you can unlock SKT T1 Lee Sin through Loot; however, that is slim.


SKT T1 Lee Sin has no Chromas.

Knockout Lee Sin

Price: 1350 RP

Release Date: May 31st, 2015

Skin Lore

The Crime City Nightmare universe is an alternative version of Valoran, where mobsters fight to control the city. A mysterious figure then comes who introduces them to an ancient eldritch evil.

The main parties are The Graves Crime Family, The Miss Fortune Cartel, The Twitch Syndicate, The Beyond, and The Debonairs. Knockout Lee Sin, though, is not affiliated with any of them. Instead, he is a pit fighter who left the underground circuit for greener pastures. He is now a “problem-solver” for wealthy kingpins.

Appearance and Effects

Knockout Lee Sin’s appearance is inspired by the Prohibition-era’s club fighters. He wears boxing gloves, a hat, an open top with a towel draped around his shoulders, pants, and boots.

One significant difference with Knockout Lee Sin is that he uses his fists for all his attacks and abilities. When recalling, he summons a stool that he sits on as he stretches his neck.

How To Get It

You can get Knockout Lee Sin for 1350 RP. It’s a tad pricey but not the worst purchase you can make.


There are no Knockout Lee Sin Chromas.

God Fist Lee Sin

Price: 1820 RP

Release Date: April 5th, 2017

Skin Lore

Immortal Journey is a universe where champions are spiritual warriors with powerful weapons.

God Fist Lee Sin wields the God Fist. He was once mortal, and his predecessor tasked him to defeat each martial arts school’s master blindfolded. Lee Sin did that, then beat his predecessor to get immortal sight and become a god.

Appearance and Effects

God Fist Lee Sin has golden markings on his arms, back, and shoulders. He wears blue pants, and his eyes glow golden.

When he recalls, he levitates as stones around him also rise. He then makes the rocks move around him in a circle, faster and faster, and finishes his recall.

His dance mirrors that of Van Damme in Kickboxer:

How To Get It

God Fist Lee Sin can be yours for 1820 RP, just over $13.


There are no Chromas for God Fist Lee Sin.

Playmaker Lee Sin

Price: 975 RP (When Available)

Release Date: June 14th, 2018

Skin Lore

The Soccer Cup is a world dominated by soccer. Champions are divided into:

  • Referees (Red Card Katarina and Red Card Twisted Fate)
  • Order United (Sweeper Alistar, Striker Ezreal, Striker Lucian, and Goalkeeper Maokai)
  • Chaos FC (All-Star Akali, Goalkeeper Blitzcrank, Playmaker Lee Sin, and Sweeper Rammus)
  • Soccer Fans (Superfan Gragas)

The skins were released to celebrate the 2014 and 2018 FIFA World Cups.

Playmaker Lee Sin finds openings in every situation on the pitch. He can punish the opposing team’s mistakes with once-in-a-lifetime plays.

Appearance and Effects

Playmaker Lee Sin wears a custom red soccer jersey with blue sleeves. His jersey has the number 10, which is the role for attacking playmakers. He also wears white socks and soccer boots, plus hand wraps and a red blindfold.

When he recalls, a goal post appears behind him and a football. He dribbles the ball then kicks it into the net.

When he uses his Q, he throws a football at the enemy.

How To Get It

Playmaker Lee Sin is a Legacy Skin, so you will have to wait for the Legacy Vault to buy it or get lucky through Loot.


Playmaker Lee Sin has 8 Chromas: Citrine, Aquamarine, Obsidian, Emerald, Rose Quartz, Pearl, Sapphire, and Tanzanite. The Chromas change the color of his jersey, the pattern, his blindfold, and even his player number.

Nightbringer Lee Sin

Price: 1350 RP

Release Date: December 12th, 2019

Skin Lore

In the Chaos and Order universe, the cosmos contains opposing factions who constantly fight each other.

There are four skin lines in this universe:

  • Order Versus Chaos
  • Nightbringer
  • Dawnbringer
  • Battle of the God-Kings

Nightbringer Lee Sin just loves to fight. Even though his siblings fight for their ideals, he does not care about them. He only believes in the actual thrill of battle.

Appearance and Effects

Nightbringer Lee Sin has purple-grayish skin, markings on his back and arms, a mask that covers his face, plus armor on his neck, shoulder, and part of his chest.

When recalling, he has a new dance animation, and there are cosmetic changes to his other abilities.

How To Get It

Nightbringer Lee Sin can be yours for 1350 RP. You would expect the skin to do more, especially when you have skins like Muay Thai Lee Sin that cost less. I suggest waiting for this skin to go on sale before spending your hard-earned money on it.


Nightbringer Lee Sin does not have Chromas.

Nightbringer Lee Sin Prestige Edition

Price: N/A

Release Date: December 12th, 2019

Skin Lore

This skin is still set in the Chaos and Order universe. Nightbringer Lee Sin becomes wholly consumed by his steadfast devotion to battle and chaos, turning him into night incarnate.

Appearance and Effects

His skin color remains the same. However, he now has a mark on his chest that almost looks like an eye; his armor is golden, and his mask has pointed edges that protrude upwards.

This is more of a cosmetic change from the default Nightbringer Lee Sin, so there is not much else to it.

How To Get It

As a Prestige Edition skin, you can no longer buy Nightbringer Lee Sin. So your only chance to get it right now is to hope you can unlock it through Loot.


Nightbringer Lee Sin Prestige Edition has no Chromas.

FPX Lee Sin

Price: 1350 RP (When Available)

Release Date: April 30th, 2020

Skin Lore

This is the second Lee Sin skin based on the League of Legends World Championship. Chinese team FunPlus Phoenix (FPX) were the 2019 champions.

FPX Lee Sin celebrates Tian, who played Lee Sin during the tournament.

Appearance and Effects

FPX Lee Sin looks similar to classic superhero shows like Power Rangers and Kamen Rider. He wears a red-and-black costume, complete with a helmet with a black visor.

When recalling, his mask vanishes to reveal a black-haired head with a red cloth covering his eyes. He sits down, bamboo plants appear behind him, and he jumps to kick them, severing the plants. His mask then reappears, and the name Tian shows up on the ground.

Interestingly, this recall animation is the idea of Tian himself.

How To Get It

FPX Lee Sin is a Legacy Skin, so patience is necessary. You can unlock the skin through Loot or wait for the Legacy Vault to reopen so you can grab it for 1350 RP.


FPX Lee Sin has 1 Chroma: Elite. Unfortunately, this Chroma just makes his costume darker. Not worth it, in my opinion.

Storm Dragon Lee Sin

Price: 1820 RP

Release Date: October 1st, 2020

Skin Lore

What would you do if you could get the powers of a dragon?

That is the premise behind the Dragonmancers universe in League of Legends.

Dragonmancers are the lucky few who have received the ultimate blessing from dragons. Whether they use this ability for good or ill, only other Dragonmancers can match up to them.

Storm Dragon Lee Sin’s passion for justice has fully consumed him. To get the power to defeat villains everywhere, he climbed the storm dragon Ao Shin’s mountain. The storm dragon granted him the ability to become a Dragonmancer and now watches over Storm Dragon Lee Sin as he carries out his justice.

Fun fact: Ao Shin is actually Storm Dragon Aurelion Sol.

Appearance and Effects

Storm Dragon Lee Sin has white hair. His right arm has markings that glow blue, from his shoulder to his fingers—with a dragon head on his shoulder. He wears an intricate black-and-white costume with gilded edges and a gauntleted left hand.

He has all-new animations. For instance, with his emotes, he can summon a storm that rains down on him, do pushups while using lightning to push himself up, and more.

When recalling, he summons a storm cloud, dances around it, then the storm dragon appears. When he first casts his Q ability, he throws a sonic wave that resembles the Dragon. A dragon head halo then appears above the marked target.

How To Get It

At 1820 RP, Storm Dragon Lee Sin is among the champion’s two most expensive skins. However, this does more than the similarly priced God Fist Lee Sin. It will add a whole new visual dimension to Lee Sin if you can afford it.


Storm Dragon Lee Sin comes with 7 Chromas: Sapphire, Tanzanite, Pearl, Ruby, Obsidian, Emberclaw, and Jadeclaw. The Chromas have subtle changes to his patterns in addition to the noticeable color changes. They are worth checking out.


Question: What is The Best Lee Sin Skin?

Answer: Muay Thai Lee Sin is a fan favorite, along with Storm Dragon Lee Sin. Muay Thai Lee Sin, while simpler, is more affordable. However, Storm Dragon Lee Sin changes everything about the champion’s appearance and animations.

Question: What is the Worst Lee Sin Skin?

Answer: For now, Acolyte Lee Sin is the least impressive Lee Sin skin. It is a skin that looks better as a splash image than in the actual game.

Question: Which Lee Sin is Inspired by Bruce Lee?

Answer: Dragon Fist Lee Sin is an homage to the legendary Bruce Lee. It references his character in Enter The Dragon. His Yellow Chroma also references Bruce Lee in The Game of Death.

Question: Is Lee Sin a Ninja?

Answer: Even though he uses Energy in place of Mana, Lee Sin is not a Ninja in League of Legends.

Question: When was Lee Sin Released?

Answer: Lee Sin came out on April 1st, 2011.


You should have a good idea of which skins you want. However, if you are still on the fence about some of them, it might be good to try the Public Beta Environment (PBE) server. This will let you try out every Lee Sin skin without paying for them.

Lee Sin is a champion with a wide selection of skins, most of which are worth the price if you can afford them. There are homages to real people, like Dragon Fist Lee Sin; premium skins like Storm Dragon Lee Sin and God Fist Lee Sin; and celebrations of fighting techniques, like Muay Thai Lee Sin.

If you enjoy playing Lee Sin, his skins will add an interesting dynamic and hopefully make him even more fun.
