Not only is Rammus the most eloquently spoken poet of League, but he’s also a master of the “Stop Hitting Yourself” martial arts.

Yet even with all that prestige and dignity, my boy could really use a visual tune-up.

Luckily, skins are a thing.

So we’re going to look at Rammus’ entire catalogue and rank every single skin, based on price, features, and overall appeal. Let’s see which of his cosmetics are really worth getting.

 

10. Molten Rammus

Released: July 13th, 2010
Price: 975 RP

Although I don’t think this is the ugliest skin Rammus has in his catalogue, the cost to enjoyment ratio is just completely whack.

The character model is okay, with the shell being mostly just recolored, and his body getting some magma textures. But that’s about it.

And in terms of animations and particles, that’s really just recoloring as well, with the exception of the Q and R which do get some flame particles.

I think this skin had the potential to be rather good – but that would have required a lot more than a bunch of color swaps.

 

9. Chrome Rammus

Released: May 17th, 2010
Price: 750 RP

This is the only Rammus skin that offers no new particles whatsoever, let alone new animations. So its ranking was gonna be pretty bleak from the start.

At least it doesn’t charge 975 RP like some other skins though…

But is the new character model at least good?

I actually think that it is.

Even though Chrome Rammus is mostly color swapping, the skin is oddly nice to look at. It just has a rather menacing vibe, and the fact that this skin also gives Rammus a grinning smile both worries and excites me.

All of that being said, it’s mostly color swaps. And you can do way better elsewhere – or at least pay less for a similar end result.

 

8. Freljord Rammus

Released: November 22nd, 2010
Price: 520 RP

If you ever just wanted to be a frozen rock, today is your lucky day.

When it comes to Freljord Rammus, I can’t really say that I like the character model. Its age just glares back at you from the screen.

That being said, at least it has a very defined personality, unlike Chrome. And it isn’t asking for a high price like Molten.

It also comes with a few new particles, but honestly it’s not anything to write home about.

Plus I have seen a few Rammus mains praise this skin, so I guess it has to be at least somewhat good to some players out there.

 

7. King Rammus

Released: October 20th, 2009
Price: Beta Giveaway

Okay, I know that people really like to drool over this skin but let’s face it – King Rammus is not really worth the hassle.

You can’t even get this skin unless you straight-up buy a new account that happens to have it. And those are not cheap.

Also, the skin itself just offers a character model recolor to look like Bowser, and a little crown animation for your W.

Is it an absolute flex because most people (including me) have never seen this skin in real life? Absolutely.

But does that automatically make it the best skin in existence? No.

 

6. Ninja Rammus

Released: May 17th, 2011
Price: 975 RP

Now we can finally get into actual game-changing skins.

Ninja Rammus is the simplest of this bunch, but it is still pretty dope. The splash art alone makes you want to play it – and the character model doesn’t really disappoint either.

Your shell finally gets a new design with blades sticking out, and your underbelly receives some armor and a rather disgruntled face.

The skin also offers some new particles, as everything is made to look purple and smokey.

But of course, the most important aspect of any Rammus skin is how cool the Q animation is. And I have to say it looks pretty awesome here.

True, this skin doesn’t have as many bells and whistles as some others. But I still think it’s worth considering.

 

5. Astronaut Rammus

Released: July 1st, 2021
Price: 1350 RP

I had really high hopes for this one. It’s one of his newest and most expensive skins (King and Hextech not included).

And while it is really good, I can’t say that it’s even close to being the best Rammus skin.

Let’s list off the pros first.

The character model is rather detailed, and you get that goofy Astronaut walking animation. Plus your occasional “okay” now sounds different.

Also your backing animation is really dynamic and your ult is just brilliant, as you launch little aliens into the air with each tick.

On the negative side, the new sound effects just seem out of place.

Your auto-attacks sound like little laser guns, and your Q sounds like someone flapping a sheet of metal.

And since you’ll be hearing both of those sound effects all game, those downsides left me not liking this skin as much.

 

4. Full Metal Rammus

Released: August 16th, 2012
Price: 975 RP

Finally, a skin that actually makes you feel dangerous and not like a lost pet.

Not only is Rammus now entirely made out of metal (an excellent punch absorber), but he also has spikes everywhere – an excellent punch deterrent.

Hell, even your hands are now little drill things just to really let everyone know you mean business.

Your Q looks like death in ball form, and your ult now has literal saws coming out of the ground for each tick.

You honestly can’t even get angry when a Rammus player kills you while wearing this skin. You really should have seen it coming.

Definitely one of the best.

 

3. Guardian of the Sands Rammus

Released: April 26th, 2015
Price: 975 RP

I had a hard time choosing whether this skin or the previous one would kick us closer to the top, but I landed on Guardian of the Sands because it thematically suits Rammus a bit better.

The character model is just immaculate and it immediately makes you feel like some sort of Egyptian god.

And the fact that your wings pop out during your Q and your new backing animation makes the skin feel oddly down to earth.

You don’t get a lot of changes on your abilities. But it doesn’t really matter that much, as the base particles fit the theme just fine.

And my favorite part about this skin is that you can focus someone all game and claim that it’s because you’re a dung beetle and you love rolling up feces. Totally worth the chat restriction.

 

2. Hextech Rammus

Released: August 15th, 2019
Price: 10 Gemstones

Hextech skins have never been high up on my list. I always find them way too expensive and rather mediocre.

But Rammus somehow managed to flip the script.

Besides the price, I honestly can’t say anything bad about Hextech Rammus.

You get a rather satisfying new auto-attack visual effect, your Q makes you look like a demonic yoyo, all of your particles have been nicely color-coated (or slightly altered), and the new backing animation is pretty fun.

Even the character model brilliantly walks that fine line between being unique and still keeping true to the champion fantasy.

 

1. Sweeper Rammus

Released: June 14th, 2018
Price: 975 RP

If putting a Hextech skin so high up wasn’t a big enough surprise, a Soccer Cup skin actually managed to win the whole thing.

I swear, Rammus skins abide by different rules than the rest.

I can’t even say this wins because it’s funny, as the skin is genuinely really well-made.

Your Q turns you into a football, your W actually has your spikes shoot out from your shell, your E has a funny little whistle sound effect, and your ult actually creates a little field on the ground.

You even get an incredibly adorable, wholesome, and relatable backing animation!

Like seriously, this skin somehow has it all – and I don’t know how that makes me feel.

Without a doubt, Sweeper Rammus deserves to be crowned the best Rammus skin. What a time to be alive.
