Keep in mind that there are some champions like Kindred who have been described as gender-neutral although people have generally referred to them as females. They were not included in this list.

Which are the Most Popular LoL Female Champions in 2024?

The popularity of a champion greatly depends on the current meta.

Throughout the years, the community had transitioned through brief and long periods when certain types of champions were on a pedestal and others were neglected.

Only a few special female champions like Jinx and Lux have remained in the elite list of the most played characters for years and also Riot's favorite marketing subjects.

Remember that Lux has appeared on more marketing materials than any other champion and Jinx was one of the main characters in Arcane, the iconic animated TV series based on League of Legends.

Jinx (The Loose Cannon)

Jinx_PrestigeBattleCatSkin.webpPrestige Battle Cat Jinx

Originally from the streets of Zaun, Jinx's wild demeanor and love for mayhem are undeniable.

Armed with an entire arsenal of weapons and a chaotic sense of humor, she is also known as The Demolition Diva.

In the early stages of a game, playing Jinx may be challenging. As a skill shot-based Marksman, scaling with her requires mechanical prowess.

But once the game advances, Jinx turns into an extremely mobile hyper-carry, which is the reason she is the most-played female champion in League of Legends. 

Lux (The Lady of Luminosity)

Prestige Battle Academia Lux

Born into a prestigious family in Demacia, Lux was destined to uphold the kingdom's ideals of honor and duty.

Despite the risks, she embraced her secret passion for magic with a dream to prove that it could be used for good.

Lux is a versatile Mage champion that is relatively straightforward but requires some mechanical skills.

Her only downsides are the low base HP and below-average mobility. 

Ashe (The Frost Archer)

Lunar Empress Ashe

As the queen of the Freljord, Ashe is a strong leader with a dream to unite the tribes under one banner.

Her bow is infused with true ice, a rare mineral that never melts.

Ashe's in-game abilities make it difficult for her opponents to approach or escape, as her passive and second spells have a slowing effect, and her Ultimate stuns all enemies in its hitbox.

Ahri (The Nine-Tailed Fox)

Ahri_PrestigeKDA29Skin.webp

Prestige KDA Ahri

Once a remorseless predator who fed on the essence of unsuspecting humans, Ahri longed to become human herself.

Over time, she learned to control her powers and yearned to regain her lost humanity.

In the game, Ahri's magic materializes in the shape of orbs with different kinds of energy. Mastering the mechanics of Ahri is fairly easy but the higher number of skill shots makes her a medium-difficulty champion.

Vayne (The Night Hunter)

Dawnbringer Vayne

Born into a noble Demacian family, Vayne witnessed the murder of her parents at the hands of a bloodthirsty demon when she was sixteen this critical moment forced her to dedicate her life to purging her homeland of dark creatures.

Armed with her crossbow, Vayne is one of the high-damage ADCs in League of Legends.

This extremely mobile champion requires the highest degree of mechanical abilities but once mastered, she is nearly unstoppable. 

Miss Fortune (The Bounty Hunter)

Porcelain Miss Fortune

Born to the family of a weapons manufacturer, Miss Fortune witnessed the death of her parents at an early age and barely survived herself.

With revenge in her mind, she rose through the ranks of the criminal underworld and became a feared captain.

In the game, Miss Fortune is even more dangerous.

While she is not the most mobile marksman, MF is capable of doing extreme damage from the earliest stages of the game.

With the right positioning and build, Miss Fortune becomes a hyper-carry that can win entire team fights. 

Diana (Scorn of the Moon)

Diana_WinterblessedSkin.webp

Winterblessed Diana

Raised by the religious cult of the Solari, Diana was cast out for questioning the beliefs of her people, and in time, she became the leader of the opposing religious group of the Lunari.

Diana is one of the rare melee AP fighters in League of Legends and depending on the build of choice, she can be considered an assassin too.

Her burst damage made her one of the most popular LoL female champions.

In terms of skills, Diana is moderately difficult to play.

Caitlyn (The Sheriff of Piltover)

Caitlyn_PrestigeArcadeSkin.webp

Prestige Caitlyn

Renowned for her unparalleled skill with a rifle, Caitlyn is the pillar of law enforcement in Piltover.

Her mission is to keep the streets safe from criminals.

In League of Legends, Caitlyn is a fairly balanced ADC that requires some technical skills.

She relies heavily on basic attack damage and thus two of her four spells produce more damage with the next attack if landed. 

Kai'Sa (Daughter of the Void)

Heavenscale Kai’Sa

A survivor of the void, Kai'Sa battles the darkness that is trying to consume her and protects the innocent in a world that misunderstands her.

In the game, Kai'Sa is a mobile and versatile ADC that is adaptable to different playstyles. Her abilities make her dangerous in short- and long-range battles on the Rift. 

Akali (The Rogue Assassin)

Prestige KDA Akali

Hailing from the reclusive Kinkou Order, Akali is torn between her duty to the organization and her desire for freedom.

Her mission is to defend her homeland from all its enemies.

Over the years, Akali's abilities and appearance went through numerous changes in the game, including a complete rework of the champion.

Before and after the transition, she was one of the most exciting assassin champions in League of Legends.

Female Champions: Role Distribution

The old role stigmas no longer exist in League of Legends as the different metas preach for entirely new playstyles.

Therefore, most champions have been categorized with at least a couple of different roles.

The following chart considers this fact and the percentages include both single-role champions and playable characters that fall into several categories.

Take Ahri, for example, a mage and an assassin. Or Vayne - a marksman and an assasin.

It is also interesting to see the percentages that female champions in League of Legends occupy from the total number of playable characters in the game (168). These are the facts:

  • There are 45 tank champions in the game and only 15.6% of them are female characters (7).
  • There are 36 supports in the game and 67% of them are female champions (24). 
  • There are 31 marksmen in League of Legends and the female champions make up 45% (14). 
  • There are 63 mages in the game with 46% of them being females (29).
  • There are 71 fighter champions in League of Legends and just 24% are females (17). 
  • Finally, there are 43 assassins in LoL and only 39.5% of them are female champions (17).
