Character Background

Teemo is a legend among his yordle brothers and sisters in Bandle City. As far as yordles are concerned, there is something just slightly off about him. While Teemo enjoys the companionship of other yordles, he also insists on frequent solo missions in the ongoing defense of Bandle City. Despite his genuinely warm personality, something switches off inside Teemo's mind during combat so that the lives he must end while on patrol do not burden him. Even as a young recruit, the drill instructors and other trainees found it a little disconcerting that, while Teemo was normally charming and kind, he turned deadly serious and highly efficient the minute combat exercises began. Teemo's superiors quickly steered him toward the Scouts of the Mothership, which is one of Bandle City's most distinguished Special Forces unit alongside the Megling Commandos.

While most yordles do not handle solo scouting missions with a great deal of finesse, Teemo is remarkably efficient at them. His record of success in defending Bandle City from infiltrators easily makes him one of the most dangerous yordles alive, though you'd never know it by having a cup of honey mead with him at his favorite inn. Bandle City chose Teemo as their first champion for the League, and he has taken to it like a duck to water. His signature weapon - a blowgun - uses a rare ajunta poison he personally gathers from the jungles of Kumungu. To help cope with his lengthy periods of isolation, Teemo recently struck up a friendship with Tristana, a fellow League champion and fellow member of Bandle City's Special Forces. This connection is healthy for both yordles, though now Valoran's voracious media outlets circulate rumors that the friendship is turning into a romantic relationship. Regardless, Teemo is a crowd favorite in the League of Legends, and a pint-sized foe that many have come to fear.

"Teemo rides a thin line between chipper compatriot and unrepentant killer, but there's no one else I'd rather have as a friend." -Tristana

Abilities and Innate Passive

The abilities below are from the main League of Legends game. Teemo's skill set and abilities in the mobile game Wild Rift are different.

Teemo's previous abilities are listed on the LoL wikia.

Appearance and Skins

In April 2015, Teemo was given a texture rebalance, so he looks a little different now from his original form.

"Skins" change the appearance - and sometimes particles, sound effects, and voice - of chmpaions. Although the game is free to play, all skins cost RP (Riot Points, which are obtained through real money). Skins are only cosmetic, and aside from visual or audio effect changes, do not affect gameplay. Additionally, some skins have Chromas, which are alternate colors (and sometimes models) of the skins; chromas cost extra. See Teemo.gg's 3D Model Viewer for 3D animated versions of Teemo's skins. For the skins' splash art, visit the LoL wikia.

The skins below are from the main League of Legends game. Although Wild Rift has implemented its own version of some of these skins, not all of the skins are yet available in Wild Rift. Additionally, Wild Rift has a Hexplorer Teemo skin that is unique to the mobile game and can't be obtained in the PC LoL game.

Dance, Quotes, and Sound Clips

Teemo's dance is based on the the "badger" dance.

Teemo's standard English quotes are:

League of Legends is available in many languages. Here are some of Teemo's international voices:

Omega Squad Teemo has a different English voice actor and a plethora of skin-specific quotes.

Astro Teemo and Cho'gath Eats the World (2013)

On April 1, 2013, Riot released two flash mini-games for April Fool's Day: Cho'gath Eats the World and Astro Teemo. Both games were taken down on April 2, 2013, but there are unofficial downloadable versions of both games online.

In Cho'gath Eats the World, you play as Cho'gath, destroying cities and buildings, while gaining health from eating people and other LoL champions. One of your enemies is Super Teemo, who flies in and shoots pellets at you. You can, sadly, devour Super Teemo :(

Astro Teemo was actually a mini-game within the Cho'gath Eats the World mini-game, as it was only unlocked by playing the fourth level of Cho'gath Eats the World and devouring the rainbow. Based on the game Jetpack Joyride, Astro Teemo has you playing as Astronaut Teemo and flying horizontally through a (potentially endless) level to collect coins, while avoiding traps and obstacles. You can use the coins to unlock upgrades and power-ups. Astro Teemo is designed to have a Nyan Cat-like rainbow behind him. The game also has fun background music, which incorporates Teemo's voice.

Teemo Scouts Europe (2013-2014)

From 2013-2014, Riot had a Teemo Scouts Europe event, where Riot's Community Team traveled around Europe with a Teemo figurine. The Team could not go on to their next stop in Europe until a social media challenge had been fulfilled using the event website. Fans could also follow on Instagram and Twitter using #TeemoTour. Although the Teemo Scouts Europe website no longer functions, you can see screenshots of it on the developer's website.

Teemo Scouts Europe was part of a larger "Teemo Scouts the World" event. Garena had its own online event for the Asia servers.

The Teemoing (2016)

In October 2016, Riot had a special event called The Teemoing in celebration of the Harrowing. The skin Little Devil Teemo was released for this event. The special mode Doom Bots of Doom made a reappearance; this time, players had to survive against the overpowered bots for 15 minutes, after which the bots summoned their dark yordle, a giant version of Little Devil Teemo. Players then had to kill Little Devil Teemo before he destroyed the nexus to win the game.

Spirit Bonds (2020)

Spirit Blossom Teemo was part of the Spirit Bonds event in summer 2020, wherein players could gain favor with champions and interact with them in a visual-novel-like story.

Official Merchandise

For a long time, Riot's goods were limited to T-shirts and posters. Riot eventually released some League of Legends hats, notably the popular Teemo plush hat and a Rammus hat. Originally, the Teemo hat was only given away at conventions that Riot attended, but Riot later sold them at conventions. Some of Riot's official goods, including the Teemo plush hat, were sold online for a while by J!nx, but that partnership later ended.

In late 2014, Riot finally launched its own online merchandise store, which has sold several Teemo items over the years. As of late 2022, the in-stock items include Firecracker Teemo related merchandise, such as a figurine, hat, and keycap.

Some of the retired (no longer for sale) items include: plushies for Cottontail Teemo, Panda Teemo, Astronaut Teemo, and Beemo; a Panda Teemo coffee mug; various T-shirts featuring Teemo; an Omega Squad Teemo hoodie; a Firecracker Teemo hoodie; Teemo onesie; a Spirit Blossom beanie; and various packs/sets of figurines and pins that feature Teemo.

Riot's Chinese Tmall store also sells additional Teemo-related items such as an Annie-versary figurine with Teemo-Tibbers, Teemo phone accessories, Teemo T-shirts, and Yordle-related stationary goods.

In early 2013, Riot gifted bronze Teemo statues to selected League of Legend players who contributed to the community. These statues were limited, were never available for the public, and were never put on sale.

Garena, the publisher of LoL in many Asian countries, has also released official League of Legends merchandise. These items include two wonderful Teemo plushies, one for Cottontail Teemo and the other for Badger Teemo; cute Amumu and Rammus plushies; and various detailed figurines. However, as far as I am aware, these items are only available from Garena Stadium, which is a physical store located in Singapore, and cannot be purchased online.
