The Best Gragas Skins in League of Legends (All Ranked)

Gragas is like the ultimate stress reliever.

You get to drink, but instead of a hangover, you get a pentakill.

But looking at the same shirtless man every night can get a bit boring (don’t quote me on that) so I think it’s time we dress him up a bit!

Gragas has a pretty good selection of skins out there. And we’ll try to determine which are the most worthwhile by ranking his entire skin library.

 

11. Superfan Gragas

Released: June 18th, 2014
Price: 750 RP

This one sounded like a good idea, but just flopped when it came to execution.

I mean, being at a hype football game with a giant keg of alcohol seems like the perfect scenario for our alcoholic friend… but the visuals just do not hold up.

Getting your face and body painted for a game is nothing new.

But whoever sold Gragas his paint ripped him off, because the man just looks like he has a skin disease.

At best, he looks like he’s going to a Halloween party dressed as shirtless Two-Face.

The minor visual and sound effects are not nearly good enough to make the skin really good, so I just have to dump it into last place.

 

10. Scuba Gragas

Released: May 3rd, 2010
Price: 975 RP

This one is kind of hilarious.

Riot refuses to give the people K/DA Gragas because of his overwhelming sex-appeal, but people are completely sleeping on wet-suit Gragas over here!

In all seriousness, the skin is just kind of derpy.

His muscles are basically popping out of that suit, he looks like he’s miserable, and his iconic barrel just makes no sense here.

Is he going to have a drink with the Little Mermaid or something?

Plus, the skin still carries a hefty price – while offering no new animations whatsoever.

I could see someone getting this skin as a joke. But I doubt Gragas mains are fighting over this particular cosmetic.

 

9. Gragas Caskbreaker

Released: December 7th, 2015
Price: 750 RP

I’m a little torn here.

The skin is definitely not bad, and offers quite the unique look for Gragas. He looks like a magical dwarf or something along those lines, with a traveler’s backpack and a pretty expensive-looking casket of wine.

If you look closely, he even has a health potion by his side.

But in-game this theme doesn’t come across as clearly.

The skin kind of just looks like an alternate design for Gragas during development. And given how specific his other skins are, I take it as a con.

I can totally see Gragas players loving this skin – and it is a great choice if you want a skin but don’t want to look too ridiculous.

But it is just not my barrel of wine.

Plus, the splash art gives me nightmares and I don’t want to look at it.

 

8. Hillbilly Gragas

Released: August 1st, 2010
Price: 520 RP

There isn’t all that much to say about Hillbilly Gragas – it just does what you think it does.

It slaps you into some overalls, gives you a hat, ties ropes around your arms, and calls it a day.

Saying that aloud, I can’t help but wonder why the hell there’s rope around his arms… but I guess that’s just the way he rolls.

Your beard is also yellow now, because orange is too urban or something.

This is an okay skin that does what it’s supposed to do: it’s among the cheapest skins around and it doesn’t change any animations whatsoever.

 

7. Santa Gragas

Released: December 14th, 2010
Price: 975 RP

Time to get out those milk and cookies kids, Santa Gragas is coming to town.

Only substitute the cookies with wine, and then substitute the milk with some more wine.

Santa Gragas is a very simple but very good skin design that jollies up the character model, as well as some of the animations.

You carry around a big sack of presents and toss wrapped barrels at your foes while your belly ever so gracefully bounces out of your Santa uniform.

Honestly, the belly sticking out is like my favorite part of the skin.

It’s not too expensive, and it delivers a funny and clear theme as well. So it is definitely a valid pick, especially around the Christmas season.

However, it won’t blow anyone away. And it only makes sense to use it in December, hence the relatively low ranking.

 

6. Fnatic Gragas

Released: September 24th, 2014
Price: 750 RP

I have to give it to Riot on this one, they made a really good E-Sports skin.

If you’re an Fnatic fan, this is a no-brainer, as the character model proudly wears their logo and even carries the trophy around with him on the Rift.

But even if you aren’t a big Fnatic fan, I think this skin is still pretty cool.

It just makes Gragas look like a true gamer with his hoodie, headset, and glasses. The look practically screams “Twitch streamer material”.

He just looks like a dude that’s really chill to hang out with while you play some League.

And the trophy is there for some bragging points.

So even though I think this skin is #1 if you’re a true Fnatic fan, it should still be at this spot in our ranking if you’re a casual player.

 

5. Vandal Gragas

Released: March 2nd, 2012
Price: 975 RP

If you think a lot of the Gragas skins make him look too soft and friendly, this is the skin for you.

Not only does my dude rock some brass knuckles, a leather jacket, a bandana, and some shades, but he even wears Pyke’s face on his back – just to showcase that he means business.

Hell, he even has spikes on his boots for some extra damage kicks.

In fact, he’s so badass that he carries a gas tank around, drinks from it, and then pounds you over the head.

That last one doesn’t make a lot of sense but don’t think about it.

Besides pure badassery, Vandal Gragas offers some new visual effects in the form of yellow splatter on his Q, W, and R, plus a completely new backing animation.

Definitely worth a look if you want to feel like an absolute unit badboy.

 

4. Warden Gragas

Released: January 7th, 2021
Price: 1350 RP

This is one of only two higher-end Gragas skins.

And I must say, it is pretty dope, but not my favorite.

In terms of animations, it’s second to none. It gives you tiny wings when you use your E, which was quite unexpected. Plus the Q looks drop-dead gorgeous, the ult flows nicely, and your W makes you feel extremely powerful.

However, here’s where I have slight issues.

The character model was made to look like this powerful god. And most of your animations support that.

But when you put little wings on this model, I can’t tell if it’s badass or funny.

Plus the edited voice-over sounds slightly off-putting.

It’s a gorgeous skin. But I just can’t say that it’s my absolute favorite, all things considered.

 

3. Oktoberfest Gragas

Released: September 21st, 2012
Price: 975 RP

I think this is the most sensible skin out of the bunch.

The man looks right at home at an Oktoberfest celebration.

His beer barrel fits right in, and his jolly spirit mixed with extreme violence checks out.

I know I criticized Santa Gragas for being holiday specific, but this one just feels more universal to me.

Your fat game is impeccable, your lederhosen irresistible, and your ability animations are sufficiently yellow and beer-y.

And probably the biggest selling point for the skin: your backing animation.

You do the jolliest dance – and I love it.

 

2. Arctic Ops Gragas

Released: January 25th, 2018
Price: 1350 RP

I honestly don’t even know why this skin works as well as it does.

As the name suggests, it’s all about the Arctic now. So Gragas gets a big warm camo jacket, gloves, a face mask, and whatever his barrel is supposed to be.

His animations have all been recolored to fit the blue aesthetic a bit more. And his voice-over has been edited to better fit this masked alcoholic.

At least I think he’s still drinking alcohol.

But the best part is that his E now activates a little jetpack on his back, which looks way more character-friendly than a pair of wings in my opinion.

Your backing animation also has to summon a submarine and dive into battle!

The skin is excellent in all regards, only really being held back by my weird taste in skins.

 

1. Gragas, Esq.

Released: April 12th, 2011
Price: 975 RP

I love this skin because it’s the perfect combination of stupid and badass.

Gragas, Esq. just makes Gragas look like the biggest Wallstreet fat-cat ever, throwing Château Lafite at his enemies and using off-shore banking to not pay taxes on his Rabadon’s.

His shirt is on the verge of popping, he has his pretentious glasses on, and he makes Graves seem like a smoking peasant with his cigarette holder.

Something about this skin just really makes me want to roleplay a billionaire that paid to enter the Rift. It’s honestly endless fun.

Maybe I’m just weird, who knows. But this is the best Gragas skin in my book.
