Uhhh dude. Ahri is Korean, she's a Gumiho; a creature from Korean folklore.
Ahri. It's Korean. I speak Mandarin as well and there is no Ahri.....
The nine-tailed fox is a myth, as showed in naruto, thats why ahri has 9 tails
The naruto one is demon. Ahri's Gumiho more like ghost.
Nine tail Fox is a monster (/fairy) in Chinese folk tale.
Chinese believed that by absorbing earth energy (usually by living long), even non living thing can become a fairy and they aren't all bad. As they do good deeds, they can get a better next life. Some evil ones want to eat humans and basically gain power.
the human image is merely added for nine tail fox because fox is good at seducing and attracting male.
The monkey king is another chinese folk tale monster
Best Ahri Skin --->>> MIDNIGHT <<<--- ! *_*
All of Ahri's skins imo are awesome. Foxfire for the flaming effects, Midnight for the cold nightish theme with her regular ability effects and this for its simplicity yet appealing aesthetics. No matter what though, I go back to her classic skin from time to time.
I'm just waiting for a sale to get this skin, it's the only one I don't have. They are all imo worth it.
Search kumiho on wikipedia.. xD
There is your proof. xD
you sir should work for riot.
Why is this skin 975 RP and the Midnight Ahri skin is 720 RP?
아리 한국캐릭터다 이 빙신들아 한복입는 짱깨들 잇으면 좀 내앞에 댈꼬와봐 이 양놈들아 시발 중궈새끼들
Such a good idea. Riot needs to be told *_*
Because that skin has a different dance from her other skins,even her classic.
"The more common name Kumiho is a direct reference to the Nine-tailed fox from Korean mythology.", "Dynasty Ahri is wearing modernized Hanbok (traditional Korean clothing).", "Additionally, this skin changes her dance to a traditional Korean dance" -from League of Legends Wiki
the designer of Ahri, Ezreal said this the Wiki did not 'speak'
Plus, the clothing of Dynasty Ahri is most definitely Hanbok, a traditional Korean clothing and the dance is also a traditional Korean dance. Additionally, the dance from other skins including her classic skin is from a Korean girl group called Girl's Generation. On top of that, Ezreal first asked Koreans what Ahri's name should be before she was released.
Although the original tales of Gumiho may not be from Korea, all these things are hinting that Ahri is a champion designed based on Korean cultures by Ezreal. Besides, since you did not provide any legitimate resources, I don't think you can ask for one either...
'Ahri' in korean, means 'beautiful'
That is probably the best thing I've heard in a while omg
I think Bocce Ball orianna would be better , but that really wouldnt fit witht eh gym theme...
wouldn't * with* the* Orianna*
Volleybol orianna would be better and makes more sense
Riot pls make Jenna Jameson skin for Ahri
Pretty sure its a Hanbok. If its not, I'd like for you to state what it is. Also, this is from Riot. Ahri was released in all servers for the celebration of the opening of the Korean server. Therefore it is MEANT to be korean
lol i already got Foxfire Ahri and Midnight Ahri, now that is left is this
While there are Chinese and Japanese incarnations of the Nine-Tail-Fox, Ahri was based on the Korean Kumiho.
In the Korean incarnation, if a fox lives for a thousand years, it gains the ability to shape-shift into a beautiful woman. From there, they have an ambiguous morality, often luring men and eating their hearts. However, others would be benevolent and assist humans (like how Ahri assists her team in game).
Wukong is based on Sun Wukong, The Monkey King from the Chinese Pantheon though.
Not even close to a Chinese qi pao.
Can you guys make Kitty Cat Ahri !! Tnx guys !!
Y this skin is never on sale?
they show the skins not make them >.>
아리 욕하지 마라ㅉ 한국음성으로 들어나 봤냐? 존내 꼴린다 ㅅㅂ
Ahri is Korean not Chinese
This is a Korean skin for Ahri because Ahri is based on a Korean folk tale and the dress she is wearing is a shorter verision of the Hanbok, the traditional Korean dress.
SO it means Ahri is KOREAN NOT Chinese or Japanese.
This champion is not japanese or chinese it is korean!! K.O.R.E.A.N
and in chinese, his name is actually very similar to wu kong
It's not like if there was folklore about nine-tailed foxes IN ALL ASIA -___-
ahri is a gumiho not chinese folk tale
Actually what kildras said is right, he didn't say ahri he said nine tail fox. You're right ahri is korean so its from korean. But he said nine tail fox, and actually Gumiho's folklore originated from Chinese ancient myths. Thus having simiarities with chinese Hu li jing fox spirit
The nine-tailed fox is present in both cultures.
He wasn't even talking about Ahri, it's about the story of the Chinese nine-tailed fox.
One of the worst skins ever made
All I know is the Japanese nine-tailed fox is Kyuubi
I dont understand why you guys are fighting on this subject but Ahri's clothes and design looks Korean especially her folklore, But the Nine-Tailed fox is existant in those 3 cultures (Japanese,Korean,Chinese)
This, Foxfire or Popstar? ...
I am so gonna buy this one, colours are beautiful.
I just got it from mystery gift.. I guess I am lucky woman ^_^"
The Legend of Nine-Tail fox comes from china though.
Already have Popstar Ahri skin and got this skin from Mystery Gift........ I shouldn't have bought Mystery Gift
must have skin for korean ahri users
got all skins but this one, dislike it think its dull and hate the colours
Is that how 60 frames feels like? That looks amazing.
Who else is here for the sale tomorrow? 👌👏👍
they need to freaking buff ahri man she too weak imo
is there a difference with the charm? everything else looks difference but the charm
the only problem with this skin is it kinda looks like she's wearing a tennis outfit ..
that's Korea han bok
Got this from self mystery skin. While I already have Foxfire, I really like this skin and is more worth imo because it has a different dance.
I got this as a Mystery Gift for good behavior, I'm not too disappointed with the skin itself but the splash art is awful.
thumbs up if this is the skin you've received from mystery gift!
i love the colors i just dont think it changes enough
975 just for chanding clouths
Been waiting for this skin to go on sale -.-
Just cuz new splash looks nice...ima use this skin again
